The half (or more, I guess, statistically in this country) that doesn't work out, that is.
(Apologies to Jacob Riis...my kids read an exerpt of "How the Other Half Lives" today and for some reason it stuck in my head.)
I guess I forgot how much time you have on your hands when you're not working out! Wierd that many many people work out very little...including myself a few years ago...and how much TIME you have. I feel like I'm twiddling my thumbs here. I cleaned my house before, gave Mugsy a bath, tried a new recipe for dinner (2 thumbs up from Matt and I), and I've already finished grading papers. I even have time to watch 24 tonight....SWEET....and since I don't have to worry about getting up at 5 it's OK if it stresses me out a bit tonight! :)
Man, I gotta start working out. Like, five minutes ago wouldn't be soon enough. I'm so jealous reading all of your workouts.
It's taking all the restraint I have not to go for a run--today was gorgeous! (FYI: Gorgeous for Ohio in January consists of a)sunny and b) above 40 degrees) Settled on taking the dog for a walk.
Yesterday I did manage to have a hot date with Rodney Yee, yogamaster of my DVD player....the Doc didn't say no YOGA. :) Come on, I'm going CRAZY here! Did core work yesterday and today, too...just 'cuz, again, I'm starting to lose it.
I even found myself daydreaming of an apology to the pool. It went something like this:
Dear YMCA Pool,
I know it's been almost 2 weeks since I've seen you. I'm sorry. It's not you...it's me. I just needed some time. Or at least that's what people have been telling me.
I'm sorry I made fun of you for being 20 yards instead of 25. I don't mind swimming an extra length to make 100 yards...even if it totally screws me up in the head because I'm used to four lengths. I promise I won't make fun of you again.
I'll be back on Friday. Please don't be mad at me and make it harder for me than it already will be to get used to you again. I promise I still love you. Will you take me back?
Clearly I've lost my marbles.
I know this is what's best...that it's better to miss a few nice days in January than a LOT of nice days in April! And I really do feel better...all this hydrating and resting (and these serious meds) have worked wonders.
I just can't seem to stop wondering....
Is it Friday yet? :)
