The Good News and the Bad News

Well, bad news first: I tweaked my back in BodyPump class on Wednesday. *sigh*...I had decided to up my weights a bit, and I felt fine during class, but about an hour or so later, my lower back starting pinging. Darn, darn, darn! I took it easy yesterday, and walked around a nearby park, and checked out the pool where I'm going to start swimming once a week. I had a date with Jillian and her girls this morning, and I had to cancel. (i.e., "30 Day Shred" DVD, and I was going to run, too.) I've been walking, but otherwise *nothing*.

I should be taking this like a grown-up.

I really should.

*sniff*...I'm going to be okay, really!

[lip quivers]

WHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! NO FAIR!!!!!!!!! I WANT TO RUN!!!! I WANT TO LIFT!!!!!! I want to train for my Tri!!!! AAAAAAUUUGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I guess my question is, what can you do to keep the rest of yourself in shape when one part of you is giving you trouble? If it were legs, I could focus on upper body, or if it were upper body I could do lower stuff, but when it's your back? *sigh*....

*sigh*...Okay, now for the good news! And there's plenty to offset my tantrum.

  • It's sunny outside!
  • It's the first day of Spring, and the trees in the neighborhood where my office is located are in full bloom, and little white petals are drifting through the air everywhere!
  • Got a date night with Mr. Handsome and Handy tomorrow night! Kids are going to their dance teacher's for a babysitting fundraiser by the older students, so we can stay home if we want to and watch a grown-up movie! Or we can go out! (We usually have to go out when there's a babysitter, so it might be kind of luxurious to stay IN!) 4 glorious hours!!!
  • I talked to my mom today. You know, the one who had heart surgery 2 months ago? Who was feeling tired all last month? Well, she's been walking and today she walked 3.5 miles!!! Woo hoooooo!!!! She wants to do a 5K walk event with me!!!!!
  • I get to meet Juice on Sunday!
