Last week I made it to the fitness center for six days! Yeah, even Saturday. Talk about dedication, huh? So far the weight machines aren’t hurting my knee (I was able to use the blasted butt blaster without any pain), so I’ll take that as a positive.
And even though I went Saturday morning, it might have been a mistake to exercise, and not because of the work out. I wasn’t feeling 100% that morning and by the evening, I was achy. Now my head (nose?) is all congested, but at least I’m no longer achy. As of this writing (Sunday), I doubt I make it to the fitness center this morning. Wouldn’t be prudent of me to go sick. Not only because working out when I’m sick isn’t all that smart (makes your body work harder than it needs to, when it’s concentrating on making you well), but why spread my germs. Of course, it’s not like I didn’t do that Saturday. At a lot of places. Ooops…
Saturday I also attended my local RWA chapter (the one in
). Again, I probably
shouldn’t have gone – hope I didn’t give this bug to anyone – but I really
wasn’t feeling all that bad when I left and I wanted to hear the speakers. And
while I did my best to stay away from anyone (just in case), I managed to give
people a reason to hug me. Why? The chapter needed a Treasurer to keep on going
and I volunteered. Figured I could put my degree back to work and I didn’t want
to see the chapter fold. Columbus
By the time I made it home from the meeting, I was feeling pretty achy (but not congested). Didn’t stop me from going to the football game, though, and it was COLD out there (40 degree weather). Yeah, not a smart move, but I just wanted to watch
play. And they won! Whoo hoo! Next week they play in the Regional semi-final
against Hilliard-Davidson. Wayne
I also learned something Saturday night. My knee does NOT like cold weather. Oh joy! I can only imagine how it’ll feel this winter.
This cold is frustrating me, though, and not just because I’m sick and hate being sick (I mean, who likes being sick?). It’s just another THING that is keeping me away from exercising the way I want. Plus, history has shown that once I miss a few days at the gym because of injury or illness, those few days turn into months. I need to change history!
So… what do you think of my new About Me photo (below)? Think it could get any better? Hee hee. J
Have a great Monday. I’m sure it’ll be better than mine. **cough, cough**
