Almost Back

Howdy peeps.
Thank you all for the uplifting words over the weekend. Here's how it all panned out.

Friday - I made a little oopsy. I met some friends at our local watering hole where I bumped into the Captain. I know, I know. But a girl has needs.

So I decided to start over on Saturday. I went for a little run to test the waters. The first mile was fantastic. But about 1.2 miles in, the pain in my calf came back so I turned around. Luckily I had movie plans with my bestie so that took my mind of off the failed run. We saw "He's Just Not That Into You. Quite apropos given the current situation. ha ha.

I did a lot of reading - finished "The Hour I First Believed" by Wally Lamb. I liked it, but I didn't connect with it as I have with his other 2 novels.

And the best part of the weekend is that I got my booty back to Bikram! I went 2 days. My body feels awesome. Tight and a little sore, but a good sore. Just going to class makes me feel like I've accomplished something. I need that feeling right now. I also tried to get a spin class in, but the ones at 24 Hour Fitness are annoying and always booked. I am looking into this spin club that I used to go to, just need to get a new schedule and change the clippy things on my shoes cuz they have different pedals or whatever.

So overall, it was a good relaxing weekend. I can say that I definately felt the "being single" lonliness, but I know once I get back into the swing of things, I'll be ok with that.

Oh, last thing, there was ONE spotting of the hot neighbor, but just waves from afar were had.

That is all.

Hopefully the hot neighbor will make another appearance (preferably closer)!

Bikram makes me feel like I've accomplished something too. I wonder why I don't go more often!?!? (Oh yeah, it's hard!)

I think I just need to find a closer Bikram - I love it, but hate driving so far on a Saturday morning when I could be better utilizing my time by SLEEPING.

Sorry 'bout the still soreness in the calf - glad you're taking it easy. Not sure if I'm sorry 'bout the Captain thing - I'm sure you're taking it easy there, too.

*smirk*

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. I'm sure yoga will work wonders on your injury.

Waves from afar....It sounds like the title of a romantic novel.

Oh I am so jealous of your ability to go to Bikram whenever you want to! SO JEALOUS!

BOBBI McCORMICK said...

eurydice said...

welcome back :)

RYC: i was calling it "tar-jay" haha, and my bf thought i made it up and said i shouldn't say it too loud ha!

kristen said...

Your sounding like your starting to feel more like yourself. I was in a slump bad last week (I have a running injury and can't run - wich is my cure all) and went to a spin class yesterday. I felt the befefits immediately.

Just do it - even if you don't feel like it! You'll thank yoursefl afterwards, no doubt.

Michelle said...

Hey girlie glad your getting back out there!!!

Yoga for sure is a great thing!!! Keep it going OK??

Love ya!

Sarah said...

Nice to see semi-regular posting!!

Bikram seems (you know, from a completely detached and internet only viewpoint) to help your attitude and mood a lot!!

Laurel said...

Waves from afar are a good start.

Glad you're feeling a little better girl. It sucks when you know exercise will help, but when you're bummed out, that's the last thing you want to do. Glad you got to Bikram.

chia said...

I can't wait to go to my first Bikram tomorrow!!!

Good luck with hot neighbor!!
