I am so glad the weekend is almost here! This week has been one of those weeks and I have a nice run planned for Saturday with a girl I met named Sarah. We’re going to do the loop I ran last weekend at the park. We’re shooting for 4 loops to make 3 miles. Fingers crossed.
So the past few weeks I’ve been having a facial tick that has been pretty annoying, but nothing I would normally care too much about; except that it’s been almost a month now. My diet hasn’t been fantastic, but it’s not awful; my sleep hasn’t been any more or less than normal and I don’t think I’m more or less stressed than usual. I really have no idea what could be causing it. My doctor ordered an MRI for me yesterday and results came back today that every thing is normal.
So before I get into my “ask the blogosphere” here are some pictures post MRI. I’m slightly claustrophobic and even though it was an open machine I was a little panicky so I needed a little pick me up to get myself in check.
Lunch and museums were the perfect thing! I had to pull myself from the French Impressionists so I could see the rest of the museum. I fell in love with them all over again.
Now to my “ask the blogosphere” portion. If my facial twitch is from underlying stress what can I do about it.
For a while, I meditated and I liked it a lot, but it definitely made me sleepy; it was something I tried to save for before bedtime. I have been running and working out on lunch when I can’t work out at night; which helps break up my work day and makes me more productive for the latter half of the day.
My doctor is suggesting that I try to drink more water, try to get more sleep and keep up my workouts. What do you do when you’re stressed? What workouts help you relax?
Until I figure out something, I have a lunch run planned for tomorrow before heading into a long work day at both jobs, followed by a good night’s sleep.
I can’t wait to read some of your suggestions and I can’t wait for the weekend.
