ENDORPHINES. I got me that natural high. I just want to stop random strangers on the street and yell "Woo! Yeah!" followed by a vigorous chest bump. Yesterday, after errand running and aqua yoga I made curtains for my craft room (and none of that short cut fabric glue nonsense I usually succumb to). I drug out my 60's era Singer and cranked me out some draperies. Then, I made dinner - curry roasted eggplant. Two discoveries were forth coming: First, I hate roasted eggplant, and second, I really like curry (it smells divine). I have not entirely given up on eggplant, but it definitely goes on the back burner until I can get the memory of that seedy, spiced sludge out of my head.
Today, I popped out of bed like a daisy 15 minutes before my alarm went off. I was so full of adrenaline filled exuberance this morning that I went to the gym early and walked around the track for a few laps before my training session (I've got just over 4,000 steps in before breakfast). I also attempted the machine that is like skiing (maybe some type of elliptical) but only made it for a minute thirty before my thighs threatened to kill me. I've never had any luck with ellipticals, but maybe someday I'll make it for two minutes!
Regardless, I still kicked my own ass today! For the first time since the surgery in October, I was able to complete sets on the assisted pull up and rowing machines. I was sweating like a water buffalo on a hot day and I earned my long, long shower. Now, I'm off to work on filling up my bladder for my two o'clock kidney scan and to see what other projects need annihilating. Woo! Yeah!
