A Weight Lifted
I think it is really important that when one makes a new start in their life, in whatever direction ... that if necessary, all doors, windows and openings are securely closed. Because of this blog, and in one particular situation, I never felt like that was the case as I felt like someone no longer in my life still had 'access' and it bothered me so much on some occasions that I would vent about it to one of my friends who always gave me the same advice: ask them to STOP reading.
I took a step finally in that direction and while I hated to do it (which I felt weird doing prior because it is the internet and it is public), it came out pretty easily...and within 1 second of the words being 'said' I felt so much better! I still wonder though...will I see those peeks through the few IP's that I know belong to them or someone else close to them...if so, so be it...but it keeps me from posting some things and some pictures some of the time and I would like to think that they will honor my wish...and if not...oh well... anyway, like I said ... a weight lifted!
Speaking of weight lifting, after Sundays session I was in some pain yesterday...so much so that I teeter tottered back and forth on taking the day off. I already knew I was going to run my miles at the gym due to weather (HOT! OUT OF CONTROL HUMIDITY!) so I talked myself into just going and seeing how it felt. My whole upper body hurt so much that I wasn't sure I could move my arms enough to run! But within no time at all on the treadmill I was trucking along like nothing!
I am still a little sore this morning, mainly in my shoulders and triceps, but much, much better than yesterday!
I am really enjoying my new gym! So glad I snagged that free membership! I really like the people there, and that the main focus is on working out, and not anything more. Yes people talk to you, but I dont mind it like I normally do because ... well its just different than any other gym I've ever been to, which is awesome.
I started the prep work for the dish I make every year for Thanksgiving (my heart is SO SO SO heavy this year; I miss you Momma!!!), and I am looking forward to seeing at least part of my family on Thursday. None of us are that up for holidays this year, but I am glad that we aren't totally scrapping the holiday altogether.
As far as a Turkey Trot for me on Thursday I have decided that if I wake up and there is time to dress, drive and register then that's what I will do. If I don't then I will dress and walk out my front door and just run in the quietness that seems to accompany Thanksgiving morning in the city...
