|We forgive his 3am tendencies 'cause he's adorable.|
The good news is, I was able to get in a workout on my treadmill this morning! I did 20 minutes of 1 minute walk/1 minute jog. When I hit 17 minutes, I knew that was enough. My lower back started to tighten and get a little stabby (totally a medical term, trust me). It feels good that my legs and lungs are fine and I'm barely out of breath after the jog segments. I hope once my back starts to get better, building back up to faster speeds and longer distances won't be too bad.
This morning, several little things happened. When I went to get out of the car at the bus stop, the handle of my bag got wrapped around the gear shift and it took several tugs to pull it loose. Then I forgot to grab my lunch and Cody had to hurry and knock on the bus door before it took off to give it to me. My tired brain made a silly mistake at work and I felt stupid. It wasn't a big deal, but I hate feeling like a doofus. Any of these things individually, and especially all of them together on top of being tired, would have sent me into a tailspin a few days ago. Now, I'm able to be a little annoyed, but then laugh it off and move on. Endorphins, I've missed you. I'm feeling much more like myself. Yay!
|Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on with my face either.|
Happy Hump Day everyone! **Please note this is said with the inflection of the "Hump Day" camel.
