Wait, no. Not working out my niece. Working out AND my niece…yes, those are the topics of today’s discussion.
Although it made me feel like I was already making excuses to not work out – I was unable to go work out on Tuesday evening. I didn’t get home from work until almost 6PM, I had to go to the grocery so I could make cookies for work the next day – and I was exhausted!! Back up.
Every year at Christmas, instead of having one big dinner to celebrate – we do the 12 Days of Christmas Treats. There are 12 of us in our office and so each person takes a day. This way we get to spread it out and each person’s treat gets the full attention that day. It’s a lot of fun and my day was Wednesday.
I made cookies and cream cookies, thank you for asking!
What? Cookies and cream cookies? Yes. Redundant? Yes. Delicious? Oh man, yes.
I also was dead dead dead tired and had been for a couple of days despite sleeping properly. I self-diagnosed myself as being low in iron, so after a couple of days of popping Flintstone Children’s Vitamin’s with Iron – I finally felt fantastic yesterday. Conclusion – I’d be an awesome doctor.
Back to the story – Yesterday I worked 7:30-4:30, had a work meeting from 5:30-7PM. After the meeting I decided that I still had plenty of energy and wouldn’t regret making my way to the gym.
I was right – I didn’t regret it one single bit. Do you ever regret going to the gym when it’s over? I don’t think so. Unless you get hit by a bus or something on your way home…then you might. Tragedy notwithstanding, I don’t think I’ve ever regretted going to the gym, but I’ve certainly regretted not going. I did my daily Couch to 5k, which took all of 25 minutes – and came back home to relax knowing I’d accomplished something.
Tonight will be weightlifting.
Until then, I’ll leave you with my niece who is my favorite person ever. I asked her not long ago if she wanted me to get her a toy or take her somewhere as her Christmas gift. She quickly said she wants me to take her somewhere. I asked her “where” dreading the answer (Disney? The Beach?) She replied with “I want to go to the mall, to Books-a-Million, and Taco Johns.”
Isn’t she just adorable?
