It arrived last night.
The Voice Recorder! :D
I was sooo excited. I tested it out immediately and left myself some creepy/funny messages and played it back to Eric. He won’t admit it but I made him giggle. :D
I started off by saying, in a serious voice,
“Angela here. It was a long and cold night…….*long pause*…. My thoughts drifted to my blog and what I would post in tomorrow morning’s entry. I pause as I ponder to myself….”
Then you just hear Eric making fun of me in the background and then I start laughing and snort uncomtrollably.
No I am not uploading this one to the website! lol.
So naturally, I was super excited when I brought my new voice recorder with me on the treadmill this morning! Every time a new idea or thought crept into my mind, I recorded it (albeit in a winded voice!).
I recorded 12 things just on the treadmill! LOL
The bad thing? I injured myself this morning. :( I had a slight nagging pain after doing either my yoga or 30-day shred on the weekend, and I didn’t listen to my body this morning. I thought I would be fine so I ran. BIG MISTAKE. Now I have an even worse pain (upper, inner thigh- almost the crotch/butt area if you can believe it) and I can barely walk! I am hobbling along. NOT good. I will not be running until this is healed. :(
Please I urge you- do not run (or exercise) when you have even a bit of pain– it’s not worth it! I will be doing light stretching until I feel better to run again….*sigh.

It was not a fun workout– by the end I was in pain and had to stop!
