It's been a crazy / busy work week after taking off a sick day on Monday. Lots of deadlines, paperwork and people to catch up with. And NO time for ANY cardio until FINALLY I got out for one of my inter-office jogs today on our 2nd 60 degree days...whew!
Tomorrow I plan to attend my first Spinning class...it'll be run by a fellow social work friend...you know, a kinder, gentler Ninja Spinner...? :-) Hoping to survive well and catch up with fellow members of our local SparkTeam later for lunch.
Yesterday evening I had a pleasant outing with clients...we agreed to go for Chinese buffet and I "tweaked" our plans by adding a little walk up / down the local Rail to Trail nearby before dinner. One of my new clients had been having a tough time with auditory hallucinations and hadn't had more than 2 hours sleep a night for the past couple of weeks.
I was pleased to hear during a follow up call with him today that after last evening's pleasant walk, dinner and conversation he "slept like a baby" for 8 hours straight, waking up feeling like a million bucks! Those moments are better than money in the bank!
In the meantime, I think my bike has been tearing up over not being used during these past few glorious days and I'VE been tearing myself up over not having time for at LEAST a "little" spin!
Speaking of which, I'll let you all know how I survive my first Spinning class tomorrow...lol!
