I’m not even sure where to begin.
I guess we could start with how my gym routine had been going.
Lackluster. The theme of last week.
We all know when it’s time to take a few days off. When you need more than just the obligatory rest day of the week. A break of a few days. Maybe because your body is showing signs of exhaustion. Maybe because your motivation is nonexistent.
I was going through all of that. However, by being a creature of habit, admitting it wasn’t likely.
Then Friday happened.
That Amy carries herself with such grace and poise. Said no one ever.
Clumsy. Accident-prone. Hot mess.
I pretend these things are “endearing”. “Adorable”.
Don’t tell me otherwise.
So when we called Friday a “night in” and changed into lounge pants and hurry down the steep hardwood stairs in my apartment?
How I made it 18 months without doing it is beyond me. But you can imagine the spectacle that happened to cause 3 matching bruises, one for each stair, that my backside slammed into in one spectacularly grand motion.
I’m personally partial to the bruise on my booty. It’s a prettier shade of purple than the rest.
At least a cracked tailbone didn’t occur like the last time I flew down stairs in socks.
Maybe. My lower back seems to have gotten the worst of it. Needless to say, I haven’t seen the inside of my gym since last week. Nor have I lifted anything heavier than my work bag.
Whether I like it or not, it seems to be this is the chosen week for a break from exercise.
I’m a little perturbed I wasn’t allowed to make this choice on my own, or just taken 2-3 days instead of 4-5. But it’s time to stop dwelling on it.
At least, since it’s the holidays, I have plenty to do.
And now that I’m in two book clubs, hilariously since I can barely keep up with one, there’s that.
And all the friends I can meet up with for foodie dates with awesome bloggie peeps. Especially awesome peeps who live in my neck of the woods and our meetups (although a rare occasion) are nonstop gab fests.
Now that I think about it, that extra hourish of sleep in the morning has been nice…
Don’t feel bad for me just yet.
Now if this stretches into next week…
… someone may lose their head…
