Hello, Happy New Year, and all that jazz. It’s 2023. Normally, I would have a lot more excitement and enthusiasm, but the year isn’t starting off as wonderfully as I hoped. So there’s that. It’s disappointing, really, but what can you do?
- Cardio: 5 miles, running
Happy New Year’s Day!
I opted to run on Sunday due to some scheduling conflicts during the week. It went well, even after some New Year’s wine.
New Year’s Day is also Mr PugRunner’s birthday, so we had breakfast together. He hasn’t been feeling great, so he parked on the couch to watch football, and then we went out to dinner. It wasn’t a late night.
- Cardio: 4.16 miles, walking
A had a super early orthodontist appointment, so my walk had to wait till after. His braces should be off by summer!
- Cardio: 5.59 miles, walking
I had time for a really nice walk, which improved my mood greatly.
I got everything handled at home, and then took A and his buddy to the Bass Pro Shops in Daytona for some shopping and lunch. It was nice to hang out with them, even if it did make for a long day.
- Cardio: 5.02 miles, running + .53 miles, walking
Run day, fun day!
I had to hustle.
I had a long client meeting, then I had to take A to get his braces wire adjusted, and THEN I had to check in on my parents’ cats. It was a long day in the car and I was so glad to get home at the end of the day.
- Cardio: 3.5 miles, walking
Thursday was a bit of a poop show. I walked with J.
A started back to school and I spent the rest of the day chauffeuring Mr. PugRunner to appointments. Good times.

- InfraslimX – 30 minutes
TGIF! The cold rolled back in and it made for a glorious run. I kept it to five miles instead of six, because I had a date with the InfraslimX.
The InfraslimX is pretty insane. It’s like a reclined cycling system, but where the clients lower body is encased in a pod that provides ozone, infrared, collagen, and vacuum therapies. Outside the pod, clients have the option to use a nasal canula for oxygen and aromatherapy. In a 30 minute session, clients can burn up to 1200 calories (I burned 660). Normally, this isn’t my jam but the pedaling portion made me feel like I was getting a fitness benefit so i signed up with a friend on a Black Friday special.
It was fun. I don’t know that it’s an all the time thing, but I had a blast, especially with the pressure of the vacuum therapy (I’m a dedicated weighted blanket person, so that made sense).
When it was over, I was both tired and starving, so I had coffee with my friend, and then treated myself to lunch at the marina food trucks. This mojo pork power bowl and craft blueberry lemonade were amazing.
- Cardio: 5.83 miles, walking
J and I went for a nice morning walk. I’m loving the cold snap, so it was all good.
The boys went to the driving range and I hit the farmer’s market.
I cleaned out the pantry, again, and made it very clear that I expect everyone to keep up with it, instead of cramming things in willy nilly. There’s still a little more work to be done, but it was an exhausting endeavor, and I was over it.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
So. Here we are.
I’m a bit crushed and overwhelmed at the moment. I’m hoping that I can get back on top of everything soon. Decluttering is helping me with my clarity, but it’s also time-consuming and taking me away from other things I need to get done. I can never win!
That being said, running is good. I feel good. A neighbor saw me walking today and said I looked great and was losing weight (not my goal, but I have felt out of shape lately, so for me that was affirming to hear).
How was your week in training? Have you heard of or tried InfraslimX?
