Day 74: Trip Prep

  Today, I remembered my lunch. Woo! I wasn't hungry when I woke up, but I did have breakfast. I wanted to be fueled for the day. (Yes, I know that's not a necessity, but I'm not quite ready to test that yet). My new Tervis 24oz coffee mug came yesterday and I felt much more caffeinated after that size bulletproof coffee. Quick note, my bulletproof coffee ingredients are based on 14oz of coffee. I didn't change them with increase to a larger mug.

  Work was busy, busy. I quite enjoy the pick up. Keeps you going until you're done. The day flies by. Today for Challenge Camp was running stairs. Oh joy. One other person joined me. We did a much slower pace than the last time, but we completed the whole thing and my heart rate increased even with the slower pace.

  After work, I decided to pamper myself a little and went to get my nails done. Manicure & pedicure. It was nice. Picked some pretty pink colors. Once I was done with that, raced to the library to pick up a book on hold to take with me on my flights. Came home and packed.

  I head to Virginia tomorrow for my grandfather's memorial service. I'm dreading parts as a huge family gathering can cause problems; but, for the most part, I am very excited to see my family that I don't get to see very often. I'm taking a carry on and a back pack. Vader Bear is coming with me to have my back.

  Yes, at 34, I still go everywhere with a teddy bear or stuffed animal of some kind. I have quite a few, but my collection has drastically decreased over the years. I try to always donate them to children in need so that they get good new homes where they will be loved as much as I ever loved them.

  I have my backpack filled with keto snacks. Ok, maybe not filled, but I have a bag of pork rinds and some Epic meat snacks. Not sure what I'll have on the way back, but I'll try and make it work. Maybe if we stop by a grocery store I can get another bag of pork rinds. I feel like Virginia will be a good place to find those.

  From the library as a hard copy book I have The Case Against Sugar and The Obesity Code to read. Additionally, I have a few I checked out from the library via my kindle and a Court of the Dead comic. I added The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as well. May seem like a lot of books, but I read extremely quickly and would rather have too much to read than too little.

  Now it's to try and get some rest before getting up super early to head to the airport. My wonderful boyfriend will be driving me.
