Happy Friday! Since I’ve officially decided that working out during the week is more or less not happening for me right now, last night I found myself in a state of complete boredom. I decided to redeem a Groupon I had bought a few months back for a deep-tissue massage. I have had massages in the past, but they must have been more for relaxation purposes or body scrubs because this friggin’ hurt. It hurt in the way where you kind of like the pain and half-way through you really like the pain and almost want her to start digging further into those knots in your back muscles. Hopefully you know what I’m talking about. Anyway, afterwards I felt like she had really opened my back up and I already made an appointment to go back. Cat at Bodywaves Massage, nice job.
When I got home it was time for dinner. I’ve been feeling a cold coming on which I am desperately trying to fight off so I picked up a cup of “Mom’s Chicken Soup” from Whole Foods. This stuff rocks because it is full of delicious not weird looking chicken, there are no noodles or grains, and the broth is heavenly. I chowed down a giant bowl then attempted to go to bed early but my roommate came home and I’m pretty sure was having a one-man band practice using the pots and pans in the kitchen. Womp, womp. I’ve been pounding Vitamin C and sucking on lots of sugary cough drops (not ideal), how do I fight off a cold without taking meds?
Since I am “training” (one day a week) for my half-marathon, I really can’t afford to be sick right now…
Yesterday I ran across this photo on instagram:
I’m not exactly sure what it means to me, but I kind of believe it. I think for everyone this message is different. In terms of being sick, I often think the best thing that has come out of this is that I have been forced to focus on my health. Maybe until I am giving my body what it needs, and treating it right, then my symptoms will continue to exist until I make further changes? Ooorr, my body just hates me and I’m being punished for loving martinis so much. But it’s Friday, so I’m feelin’ optimistic.
Tomorrow is another 6AM wake-up for Team Challenge training and we’re up to 6 miles.
Hope everyone has a bad-ass Friday and great weekend! If it snows one more time in Boston, my next post will be about how I am packing up my shit, and moving somewhere warm.
