On one hand, I have been having soooo much fun the past few days. I love March Madness! College basketball makes me happy; every game counts and has potential to be a legend. Sometimes I find myself rooting for teams that aren't who I "picked" to win (in my bracket), just because I love it when teams play their best, come from behind, or prove the nay-sayers wrong. I also love it when little schools succeed, or when people I've known for a long time come out on top! The heartbreaking losses are even treasures, because you're so emotionally invested.
I was a little surprised that the hubby wasn't as interested in the tournament as I am this year. He was still totally supportive of my sitting in front of the TV for four days, but it just seemed weird, with him reading and making calzones while I cheered. I missed an opportunity to work out Saturday, but today the hubby took me on an awesome trail run -- timed perfectly to get be home in time for tip-off.
I am sighing with relief, though, because after several days of weird emotions and borderline binge eating, I am feeling normal again. I feel good for running, and can't wait to work out again. I am all set to ride my bike to work tomorrow. There's supposed to be snow, but as we say, "There's no bad weather, only bad gear." I should be set.
I do need to be more mindful of what I'm eating, though, I had such success when I was paying close attention, I need to get back to that place. And I need to do my shoulder exercises. I can't tell if they hurt because I haven't worked them out lately, or if it's because the weather is changing. (They are like my own personal barometers now.) Either way, I can't wait to get to the gym.
