I almost didn’t go to the gym yesterday. For some reason by the time my husband got home I found myself in a bad mental place. Maybe because I could quickly see the possibility of us making it to the gym quickly diminishing. So I was mopey and went up to my bed and just laid there in the dark.
My husband calls up – “You up here?” I said Yup and that was that. A little bit later I get a text 🙂
After that I got up – got dressed and went to the gym and did day two of week one – Ease into 5k 🙂 I did the entire workout with my hoodie on – that made me sweat. Then I came home and got in a hot tub and used my Fasciablaster on my calves and shins – because the shin splints were killing me!
My brain was in a much better place! I was so glad he encouraged me to go. I would have beat myself up big time and probably eaten SHIT all day today to add to the self loathing. But I feel good today! So happy it’s Friday. My husband has this weekend off. We are going to the Home Builders and Remodeling show this weekend, relaxing and sewing/model building.
You! Go do something for you – don’t put it off. Don’t let someone else determine how you feel. Get out of your head – Go to the gym – go work out to a DVD – get on a treadmill or bike. Move your body – sweat! It will make all the difference in the world.
Oh and this morning I got up to a wonderful new bruise – On My Shin! Never got one there before. But I knew it was tightly bound by how badly it hurt while I was running 🙂 The bruise is a welcome sight – hopefully the next run will be less painful as it looks like something broke free.
