Poor Alan

I noticed lately how grumpy I have been due to not running. I know that I am grumpy and say crabby things to Alan. I feel sorry for him. I feel sorry for him ALMOST as much as I feel sorry for myself.

I thought swimming would help to get some endorphins and to not feel so crabby. That might have helped slightly but not enough.

I am sorry Alan for how difficult it has been to live with me this past week. I am working on it and will continue to try to remember that just because I am bored and having a rough time doesn't mean that I need to make everyone else around me just as miserable.

Tomorrow I am going to go to body pump. Tomorrow will be hard because I have an hour between when I get out of work and when pump starts. Usually in that hour I change and hit the treadmill and pound out 6-7 miles. Obviously that will not be happening tomorrow. I thought about bringing my suit to swim some laps in that hour however, I don't think I will have THAT much time. Plus on Tuesday I signed up for a spin class and that starts 2 hours after I get out of work so I will probably swim laps in between that time and don't want to burn myself out with swimming and swim two days in a row. God forbid! So I will try to do the elliptical tomorrow and see how the knee does.

I am really excited for my Tuesday workout. I haven't been to a spin class in so long. Like over a year maybe. I gave up spinning because we got Sirius and he needed his exercise so selflessly I gave up my cardio on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturday mornings to do cardio with him. A decision I have not regretted. However, I forgot how much I loved to go to my spin class and am really looking forward to it. I guess it isn't ALL bad, not being able to run. I am getting to revisit some old friends of mine. Mr. Elliptical and Ms. Spin bike! However, I really miss my best friend of all, Mr and Mrs. Running! This is clearly the mind of a deranged lunatic that misses her workouts way too much!

So, I might have been crabby this past week but hopefully with adding spinning, going to my first PT appointment on Wednesday and starting back up at pump tomorrow my attitude will improve. Alan, it will get better, I promise. I am working on it and I love you!

Also, I want to give a shout out to Paula and everyone doing the Excellent Challenge (I am included but told her not to put my initials on her challenge board) Congratulations to all that have lost weight this past week. Job well done. I am jealous as I am one of the few that gained. I gained .9lbs this week which isn't too bad considering that right off the bat I gained 2! However, not running I have to basically re-teach myself how much I need to eat when not running. So this is good for me. Hopefully next week I will be apart of the crew that lost weight. So a round of applause to all that are participating and a huge applause to Paula for setting up this challenge. She is motivating countless lives and encouraging everyone to live a healthier lifestyle. I am so proud of her and all that she has accomplished this past year and am so happy to have her in my life and to call her a great friend of mine. So Paula, congratulations to you for all that you do and a great first week of your challenge.
