Thankful Thursday

I wrote, rewrote, and tried to write a post yesterday but all I wanted to do was whine and I just couldn't let myself hit the publish post button, so I still have it sitting out there waiting on me to decide to finish the post or just delete it.  I'll think it over for the next couple of days and we will see where it wants to go.

Yesterday after work, I was feeling somewhat better.  My nose was still clogged and breathing out of just one nostril has become a work of art for me but I decided I was up for a loop through the neighborhood.  But once I pulled into the driveway and didn't see the hub's work truck I just knew that if I didn't load up Monkey in the regular stroller, the run wouldn't go down.  So that's what I did.  Instead of deciding to bail, I loaded up Monkey in the pink regular walking stoller, gave her a bag of donuts and off we went.  We made it a whole 1.29 miles before I said, "That's it, I'm done."  I didn't really want to push it and it took me 12 mintues to go that far, so I knew the best thing for me to do was to call it quits and start making dinner.

The hubs wasn't too happy with me because he thinks that working out, especially in the cold, is only going to make my cold worse.  But and this is a huge BUT, I feel 100% better than I have all week.  Yes I still sound like I smoke about 3 packs a day, and yes I still have a cough, but I didn't wake up with a fever and my head wasn't pounding.  I did manage to clean out my clogged nose in the shower, only to have it reclogg back up after I got out, but hey for about 30 seconds I was breathing out of both nostrils.

So I'm thankful for the 1.29 miles I got to run yesterday, I'm thankful that I got to take Monkey on my run with me.  I'm thankful for the comedy show Modern Family, which I'm still giggling over.  I'm thankful that I woke up headache free and that hopefully this afternoon I will be able to get out there and run another 1.29 miles (oh, who am I kidding, I'm hoping for at least 4 miles this afternoon).

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday.  I'm going to abs class in about an hour, and I so can't wait.  My abs are starting to look flabby and I just can't have that.

  1. My husband never wants me to workout when I have a cold either but I've found even if I only do it a little bit I always feel better. Hope you get to run this afternoon and are feeling better soon.
