Getting my run on.


I got my workout in last night.  Yay me!  I wasn’t sure I would as last night was the monthly night out with some of my friends.  I usually go late after Kris gets home from work, thus taking away my time I usually use to work out.  But last night he had a meeting to go to at work so I informed the girls I wouldn’t be able to make it.  Kris ended up calling in sick so I could have gone but chose not to instead.  Why, in an effort to take better care of myself, would I choose not to have a night away with my friends?  For a few reasons, actually.

First, I didn’t want to miss my night of working out.  Sure, I could have done it tonight instead and would have, had the other two reasons not popped up.  Second, I had a visitor yesterday for the first time in 18 months and it was making me feel awful and want to crawl in a cave with a bottle of ibuprofen.  Yuck.  Third, I have a nasty cold with a major sinus headache.  I can’t even lay my head down on the left side at night because I get such bad sinus pressure that I have to turn over.  (If I’m not better by Monday I’ll go to the doctor.)  I didn’t want to expose these awful germs to my friends who are pregnant or who have small children – which pretty much means all of them.

Instead I stayed home, got my 30 minutes in on the elliptical machine (while watching the second episode of Gavin & Stacey) and then pampered myself with a long hot soak in our jetted tub.  I guess in a way I did take care of myself last night.  It was just without my friends this month.  Next month though I’ll be there!
