Had a wonderful time at the wedding, but my thighs ache like I spent the day horseback riding vs. simply walking and sitting. (Man, those ladies spanks undergarments must provide QUITE the workout). Nothing’s bothering me on my breathing, despite having skipped my meds yesterday, so this funk is surprising.
Came home from the wedding after a lovely day, and after a nice evening in a hotel. I’d purchased a room with a whirlpool, but the gap between the side of the tub and the floor was a bit intimidating, and so I ended up not using it. My tired body is now telling me I made a bad decision.
Since I didn’t do a lot on Sunday beyond walk into the house and go to bed – I even left my suitcase in the car – my sluggishness surprised / continues to surprise me.
This morning, my thighs are still tender and achey, and I’ve already missed my first swim class opportunity for 8:30 am. I need to jump in the car and at least go use their easy access whirlpool, but I’m dragging my butt. Not sure why everything should be so tender. I wore flat soled sandals, and was very well behaved in my adventures. Yes, I walked a bajillion steps down and then up again from the chappel, but nothing hurt at the time.
Today, I wanted to get my room cleaned and my jewelry workbench organized, but the bed is beckoning…
So far, I’ve at least managed to get the window fan down, and cleaned the bathroom screen from a Summer’s worth of hard work. The fan is in the tub so that I can clean it while I take my shower and then store it for the Winter. And yet still I lollygag… There’s just something about stripping naked to get into a cool pool vs. a warm hot tub that just isn’t working for me this morning. Before I do any of that, though, I need to brave my warm shower and I’m so not feeling it. It’s not cold in the house, and I’m not freezing, so it’s quite a puzzlement about why I’m malingering.
Luckily, there are YMCA classes throughout the day, and I still have a shot at redemption for getting my butt in gear. If only I could find the motivation.
