Happy Thursday Bleeps!
So the good news is that I woke up breathing! YEAH! Can I get a Woo Woo for Breathing? Well of course I always wake up breathing, but this morning my nose was not stuffed up. YEAH! It's going to be a good day. I was so excited I wanted to straighten up before I left for work...but no time. Now I am no anal Annie when it comes to cleaning, but clutter drives me crazy...messiness drives me crazy. So you know I am not feeling well when the place looks crappy. I always know when I'm on my way back to life when I want to clean.
Okay, back to the breathing thing. Fast forward to the commute to work and BAM I am stuffed up again. Dang it! I am telling you, I am allergic to my work.
I was stuffed up all morning. Dang it! I was optimistic and had packed my gym bag for after work. I knew it was going to be 50/50 going in to the day, but my rule is: if there is coughing or stuffiness during the day then no gym. As much as my body is craving a good run, I am not taking a chance on any setbacks.
So for lunch I headed to the mall to return something and the moment I left the office my nose completely cleared up. I was able to breathe the whole time. Ahhh....hmmm maybe I can amend the no gym rule...the bag is packed after all....
And then the minute I walked back in to the office BAM I am stuffed up again. Seriously??? After an hour I went and used my icky nasal spray. I was clear for the rest of the afternoon. YEAH!
So in the car ride home the usual debate began:
1: You are still sick you cannot go!
2: You are fine...take a deep breath see...you're all good!
1: Alright Miss OCD, if you're going to play that way, think of the mess at home!
2: It's been a while since you've seen a gym crush...
1: Laundry. Vacuum. Take out the trash. Clean the kitchen. Make dinner. Make lunch.
2: Your ass is getting flabby!
1: You are going away this weekend. When are you going to have time to get everything done?
2: I swear our arms do not look as defined as they were last week.
1: Think of the bags of just laying around your room that need to be unpacked.
2: Gym Crush!
1: Do you really want any Gym Crush to see you this way?
2: You have a half day on Friday, you can get it all done then.
1: Is that a sniffle?
2: You have not been to the gym since Friday!
1: But you walked all over NYC on Saturday!
2: How long before the marathon?
1: What if your lungs collapse?
2: Okay, just go for 30 it's a start.
1: Hmm...I think I can do 30.
**News report: Traffic is backed up while they fix a pot hole right at Jennie's exit to get home expect major delays **
What? Decision made. I did not get to my exit (which is still 15 minutes before the gym exit) until 6pm. I would not get to the gym and get changed until at least 6:30. Okay, go home and clean. Tomorrow your ass is at that gym! Well assuming I can breathe at work.
