Whew! I got a cold and it knocked me flat! I'm over the worst of it at last, but still have little energy. I come home after work every day and collapse.
Yesterday I decided to work out no matter what. I had awakened in pain, but I figured lying around all day wasn't going to help, but I ended up taking a nap for about 3 hours of the afternoon. Finally, around 4 p.m., I selected a one-mile gentle walk DVD and started in. It was hard! I did feel better afterward, and was looking forward to a shower.
My husband came in and said, "Let's go for a walk." Okay, my shower can wait. This sounds serious, like he has something to talk about or something. So I grab my keys, and we head out the front door--where I see friends waiting in their car. Husband tells me, "We're going out to dinner with friends." I waved at the friends and dashed back in the house to change my clothes. No way I'm going out to dinner in my workout clothes. Time for a quick "sponge bath" and a fresh, pretty outfit, and off we went to a delightful dinner at a Japanese place.
I woke up much more pain-free today and I'm enjoying my Sunday and looking forward to a good yoga workout tomorrow to limber me up.
