oh. and i brought some tracksuit pants and sneakers and have an appointment with the campus gym to work out a circuit program on wednesday. they have yoga / pilates classes but they seem to be in addition to the regular stuff (with additional fees). i'll look into that, though. seems to be the best low impact option. i think the regular classes they run are mostly high impact. though there seems to be this rave dance / aerobic one which might be fun and i might be able to lessen the impact on the exercises.

my supervisor told me about this p-doc who he knows who substituted cigarettes for gum. she buys the greatest strength gum and chops it up into little pieces and chews a bit of gum when she would normally have a cigarette. i'm thinking... that might actually work for me. i have no plans to give up nicotene and i like to choose when to have a dose (so patches aren't optimal) but the gum strategy... might actually work since chewing is something to do and i can do it as often as i smoke... so... going to buy some gum this week too and give that a shot.

fragile... but things are coming together, i think. even had a haircut yesterday which i absolutely hate (hence leave it for half a year then need to get a few inches cut to remove the worst of the split ends). lets see if i can get better at this self care stuff... sigh. i think... i'm actually... getting better. or at least just starting to enact plans for it... next up: dentist, optometrist, and i need to get to a plastic surgeon to remove this benign cyst (ugh ugh UGH). sigh... getting there... of course there are financial constraints, too... but kinda have the money for this kinda stuff right now and actually doing it so that is kinda good... i guess...
