What a difference!

Sunday, September 04, 2011

I spent most of the day crabby and out of sorts. Aside from the fact that I believe I'm celebrating PMS week (Again! It's amazing how often PMS shows up, as you get closer to menopause...why didn't anyone warn me about this?) I've also been dealing with some grown-up kid drama that I'd rather not be dealing with. (That one I was warned about, by all those people who knowingly said "the bigger the kids, the bigger the problem....and now I'm really, really appreciating my 2 remaining little kids, and their little problems.)

Soooooo after attempting to bite darn near everyone's heads off, relief arrived after dinner in the form of Super Trainer/business partner/best friend, who dragged me out for a brisk walk and a little hula hooping, and now I'm....almost bearable.

It really is amazing what a difference a little exercise makes.

    Thank God for exercise! My little 93 y/o Mom told me That I was mean one day. Almost broke my heart. So I had to straighten up.

Better day today.

So I didn't run this morning, because it was still tooooo darn hot, but I walked 2.5 miles. This afternoon I went to my second Hoopdance class and it was even more fun than the last one!

The friends we had over tonight were my business partner(and best buddy) and his wife. We ate pizza and watched Dirty Dancing, After dinner, I went outside to get some air and grabbed my hoop on the way out. Within a few minutes, everyone else was outside hooping too. It was the coolest thing...trying new tricks and watching everyone try to do it...sooooo fun!

It's hot and I've been unmotivated and sluglike for most of the day.

Other than taking my boys to the splash park for a little bit this afternoon, I've hardly moved today. I'm trying to tell myself I needed a rest day anyway, but I really don't like this feeling.

Tomorrow the weather is supposed to get a little cooler, and I've got a run scheduled for the morning and hoopdance class in the afternoon...then friends coming over in the evening, so hopefully I'll feel a little more motivated.

    I decided against my walk today. But I'll do a Leslie Sansone video later. Had to run an errand this morning. (Was reason I didn't walk) Hope you get everything done tomorrow.

    Sounds like you have a busy day planned, I hope you manage to fit in your run, I know you will feel so much better if you do.

Had my first hoopdance class tonight, and OMGosh it was too much fun!

It's so much easier being in a room full of people all learning (and throwing hoops at each other....heh.) than being alone at home trying to figure out moves from videos. I'm definitely going back....and I plan to do some practicing at home between know...I can dazzle the rest of the class. like that..LOL.

Yep....I'm definitely getting obsessed with this stuff :)

Last night, after my zumba class, I came home, relaxed on the couch, then headed to bed around 10:30, because I needed to be up by 6am to run with my evil trainer/business partner/mostly best friend when he's not forcing me to get up at ungodly hours and run.

So about 45 minutes after I went to bed, my phone rang. That's never a good thing, and usually it means there's some sort of drama in my 20 year old daughter's life that she needs her mom to help her deal with. Yep...that's what it was. She's 3 hours away, so other than lend an ear, there's not a lot I can do, but since I know she's dealing with a lot right now, I have to give her that. So 20 minutes or so later, I got off the phone, explained the situation to my husband, and laid back down to sleep.

So much for 1:00am, I was still up.

It would have been so easy to send a quick text "Sorry, not a good night, not going to make the 6am run" to my partner. He would have totally understood, and would have found another workout(he's one of those sick people that looooves early morning, and doesn't mind hitting the gym at dark o'clock.) However, I would have felt guilty and sluglike had I done that, and I wouldn't have had another chance for exercise today.

Soooooo..I got up and ready by 6:00 and I ran...well okay I mostly staggered and stumbled, but I DID IT! It sucked...a lot...but I did it! It was painful, I was crabby, and thank GOD my partner is use to dealing with grumbly clients who would rather be doing anything other than working out...but I did it!

I would spend a little more time raving about this, but I worked til 7, and it's bedtime, I'm really hoping my phone doesn't ring tonight.
