This morning, after my meditation with the barbells — and a metcon cashout that included rowing which totally kicked my butt — I had all kinds of big ideas about the truly excellent blog posts I was going to write for you. First up, a recap of my workout that would inspire you to hit PRs and feel like your metcons are effortless. (Really!) Then, a recap post of the things I’ve learned about having hypothryoidism (and the special challenges of having one’s thyroid unceremoniously slashed from one’s throat [OK. That was little melodramatic, but it feels like that sometimes.])
But today is Monday, so instead, I spent the better part of the day tumbling down the rabbit hole of health insurance research and an investigation into paid bills that are showing up as unpaid even though I PAID THEM.
I promise the aforementioned posts are coming, but researching new health insurance beat me up far more than the barbells and the rower. I’m done in. And I’m ashamed to admit I was taken down by phrases like “pays 75–100 percent of allowable amount and you pay 0–25 percent of allowable amount for covered expenses after you meet your deductible” and “deductible versus coinsurance.”
Plus, while I was doing said research, I downloaded a PDF of pricing that only halfway downloaded, and now there are two icons on my desktop that represent the stupid, f*cking, useless PDF, and for some inexplicable reason, my computer won’t let me delete either one. (I could also mention that I was without my phone all day because I forgot it in the front seat when we took the car to the shop for an oil change and to investigate why in the devil the “check engine” light keeps dinging when there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ENGINE. And, while I’m at it, my new 10-lb. bumper plates — that I bought with my very own cash to take to the craptastic gym — BENT THE FIRST TIME I USED THEM!)
IT’S A CAPSY KIND OF DAY!
So… yeah. Enough of that.
Take a look at this. It’s cheeky! Also, potentially handy if you’re new to paleo or trying to explain the concepts to friends or family. (I’m not sure where this image originated, but thank you, Anonymous Internet Graphic Maker!)
And because Monday might have knocked you down and stolen your lunch money, too, I’d like you to enjoy three minutes of an elephant playing in the ocean. It’s pure joy.
Now I’m off to do some kundalini meditation… then tomorrow, I’m seeing Dr. Sebring for another round of Let’s See How The Thyroid Experiment Is Panning Out.
I know you’re jealous.
