Excuses, Excuses.

I didn't go to the gym this morning. Aunt Flow paid me a visit last night and I slept horribly because of it. My back was super tight and sore due to the cramping so I just decided to lay in my bed rocking back and forth and trying to hum the pain away. Anyone else do that? No? Just me then. After about an hour I began to feel much better and assured myself that, yes, I could make it through the day. So dramatic! These are definitely good reasons for not going but then again all they really are is excuses.

So I took the morning to evaluate, pep talk and cheer lead. In no time I was dressed and out the door. Running errands, eating my packed lunch, getting my schedule ready for this weekend, talking to the IRS (gaaaaaaaaaah!) you know, the usual. I also made a pit stop to Borders since I had a gift card I had gotten for Christmas and looky looky what I bought:





I can't wait to start reading them tonight!

My evening client has rescheduled for next week so guess where I am heading after this post? You guessed it, El Gymo. Bodyjam is on tonight and I absolutely love that class. Dancing as if you were in a night club? I'll take it!

Work will be quite busy for the next three days plus I hope to sneak on over to the movies to check out Shutter Island (the book was the shizz!) and have dinner with friends. I may even get to see my little niecey-kins on Sunday. Yeehaw!

I may not have time to post till next week, so have a wonderful weekend ya'll!

You are not alone... I too rock and hum to make the pain (cramps, migraines) go away...

I've been wanting to read that Michael Pollan book as well - be sure to tell us what you thought of it!

Well done for getting up and taking control of the day! It can be so hard to get things done when sickness takes over so it's great that you managed it. Hope you enjoyed the movie!

Another book you might be interested in (by Dr. Huizenga from BL) is Where Did All the Fat Go? This has been really helpful for me in losing weight at home.

The fastest way I know of to relieve menstrual cramps is a naproxen plus one ibuprofen. Bite the ibuprofen once (don't completely chew it) and it will work twice as fast.

Thanks for the suggestion, Lane. :D
