Day two of any new relationship is always the interesting day. Morning after is that place where reality shears off from rosy dreams and commitments can become more solid or begin evaporating like the small ring of dark beer at the bottom of a glass.
My day two of my date with destiny was complicated by it being a work day. I love my job but the hours are not conducive to me doing more than meditating, working, driving and sleeping. It was also a payday, so I got to start the day off trying to find where I am going to squeeze out not just the $1000 for chiropractic treatments and massage, but $200 for my trainer and another $400 for shoes, bike with training wheels (have I mentioned before I do not know how to ride a bike?) Now I can add to the voices in my head telling me I am too fat and old to even consider this, another voice telling me I can’t afford it.
Well here is the facts little voice, I am not too old, not to anything. And I am going to make this work. I am going to do that triathlon and I am going to continue to take what ever measures are available to me to be healthier and pain free.
Speaking of pain free, thanks to the treatments at Backfit I have taken no Tylenol in the last 24 hours, I did an entire shift with my patients without pain. Well, I am actually having some discomfort. The calves of my legs and my upper arms are all saying, "Hey, we had some unfamiliar exercise yesterday!" But none of that burning, tingling back and leg pain and no throbbing headeache, this is the good kind of building more muscle kind of ache.
Need to sleep soon cause I am taking the dogs early in the morning for a walk/jog, just their usual, nothing special. I have to save up energy for two more shifts. Then Sunday night I will be walking 5K and doing my swimming homework.
So what did I do different today, to show I am still in this relationship? I didn’t eat when I got home. I come in the door about 2000, and customarily do some inappropriate carb loading, tonight I am Sipping some herb tea only.
