Well, first of all, HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY! I'm part Irish (like you couldn't tell from the ass-white skin???), so clearly, I enjoy this day immensely. How will I celebrate you ask? By making my Irish forefathers roll in their graves by not drinking and working on my thesis. I have MAJOR catch-up to be doing. Yipes!
So yesterday was a pretty good day. I jogged/walked for 32 minutes, did a workout at Curves while I was working, and then saw the boy. We went monument walking. I wore my flip flops. Normally no biggie. Apparently, it's a biggie when there are five billion middle schoolers running around and who kept stepping on my left flop and making my foot twist. Upshot is? I can barely walk today. *GACK*
There went all my well-laid plans of working out and getting to school to get some stuff done today! Instead, I'm at Cosi's that is all of a quarter block away because that's all I can walk without wanting to shoot my foot off.
But! Have I let this get me down? NO! Well, ok, maybe for a little bit. BUT! I am at Cosi's writing this, and have already started on the thesis. And what about my workout you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked! Because I have a plan!
Ok, when don't I have a plan? That's an even better question. Anyways! I don't need my feet to do an arm, back and ab workout. I'll stand to warm-up somehow (I've figured it out, just way too hard to explain on here) and then use my bouncy ball (that's what I call exercise balls) to sit on to do my arms and then use that and the floor for abs. There is NO reason why this can't work. And hopefully my foot will be better tomorrow to be able to do some squats, calf raises, and I'll be able to do the leg exercises at Curves when I'm working. I might not be able to lunge, but anything I CAN do is what counts.
Normally I'd let something like this get me down, but there is absolutely NO reason for that! There is always something we can do to be bettering our bodies, with or without an injury.
Except I have a confession. I totally slept in and missed breakfast.
So yes, you can totally call me out on partial bs
I'm in a great mood because this is going to be a great day! I can do this, you can do this, we can all do this!
Way to go my fellow sparkly sparkies!
God, I'm making myself sick with all this sappy positivity
P.S. The boy and I, on our walk, had our arms around each other at chunks. He's still hacking like a maniac, so we'll see what really ends up happening when we can even so much as kiss haha.
