Cold, rainy Monday
Monday, January 23, 2012
I didn't get out for groceries this morning as I usually do on Monday mornings. We had some freezing rain overnight, and the roads were all ice in my neighborhood. Even if it weren't icy, the weather (it's still raining, though it has warmed up to 41°F) has aggravated the pain from my bone mets, so I had to take a pain pill as soon as I got up. They make me light headed and a little sleepy, so I don't drive if I have to take one. Since I have chemo tomorrow, and won't feel good after that, I will have my mom pick up the few things I need when she does her own shopping.
I am taking the day off from exercise too. Even with the pain pill, my shoulder still really hurts, so even yoga is out of the question today. I did work out the last 4 days all in a row, and it really tired out both my shoulders, so I think my body needs a rest for a day anyway. I get a little bummed when I can't add those fitness minutes into Spark, but I know that I have to give myself a break sometimes and not push myself to the point of injury or exhaustion.
Even though it has warmed up a bit, the temps are going to start falling again and we are supposed to get a little snow overnight. We may have some snow flurries tomorrow too. That is ok with me; when it's this cold, I'd rather be out when it's snowing instead of raining.
