Despite having slept in (until 9am and then having a mad rush to get everyone out of the house in an hour) today has been a long and exhausting day. Whenever everything seemed to be too much, I kept slipping into blog mode, wondering how I would be able to capture the day in words to make it sound right and explain the mood. At the time it made sense. Now? Not so much. I really can’t find the words to describe the day, so perhaps I will try tomorrow, or maybe the next.
In the madness of getting myself and 2 kids ready in an hour, I didn’t get to Shred this morning. I really thought that perhaps I could get out of exercising for a day, but then realised that if I make an excuse today, I will make an excuse tomorrow and then the next day and before I know it I am spending every day making excuses and eating my body weight in chocolate. I threw the dvd on, grabbed my faux hand weights and exercise mat and away I went.
So sure, I feel great for having exercised but in reality I am so tired that I can barely move. My body hurts in ways I didn’t think possible for only 20 minutes exercise three days in a row. Man that sounds lame, one hour of exercise and I can’t stop complaining. Anyway, I was so spent that I couldn’t even stand up to do the cool down exercises, so I did the stretches laying down. It wasn’t until I was going insane listening to the noise that accompanies the menu page that I actually dragged myself up off the floor to find the remote. I fell on the couch to turn off the noise and I haven’t moved since. Why does bed have to be so far away? The couch is really comfortable, but I think it might get cold.
Must get up… must move… the cat has settled in to sleep on my back… perhaps I will just rest on the couch a while longer…
