In case you were wondering, I’m the idiot. Obviously. If you’re sick or injured, I’ve now got 5 quick steps to share that will ensure you will never feel healthy ever again in your life. Yes, I’m dramatic.
How To NOT Get Better
1.) Go for a run against your better judgement. Curse your body for rebelling against you.
2.) Fuel with pumpkin pie and red velvet cake icecream. Shut up, they so go together.
3. ) Drink wine. Preferably white, since that seems to dehydrate you more.
4.) Forget to stretch. Whine until your husband gives you a painful massage. Cry a little.
5.) Get little sleep thanks to a mysterious force that awakens your toddler repeatedly.
I’m probably one of the worst when it comes to treating myself like I’m sick. I will be laying on my death bed one day trying to “get a few more things done”, ya know? The sad part about that is I’m actually not that productive of a person normally. I just can’t sit still and wallow in my sickness. It drives me nuts. So, 9 times out of 10, I’m probably sick or injured longer than I would have been if I would have just chilled out. Oh well. I never claimed to be good at life.
Back to last night’s run. I’m actually glad I attempted getting some miles in. I want to stick as closely as possible to “the plan“, without being dumb about it. It’s an easy line to cross for me. Ultimately, I don’t think I did any damage last night. I ran 3 miles instead of 4, but they weren’t very uncomfortable at all. I didn’t have to stop the entire time, which is a huge improvement from this weekend when I could barely walk. My side feels so much better. I’m starting to really think I just have some super freaky flu/stomach bug/cold hybrid. It’s possible, right? Whatever it is, it seems to be fading away. Thank goodness, because I need to get my dance on tonight. I was going to put “drank on” back there, but that seems like a poor choice of words considering I’m supposed to be an adult. Kidding. I’m going to be super mature, behave like a lady, and not freak out over famous people. Or something like that.
My friends Aubrie, Logan, and Megan are all actually allowing me to go in public with them tonight! We are heading to the Guitar Pull to see Florida Georgia Line, Sheryl Crow, Darius Rucker, and what seems like a bazillion other artists. SO FREAKING EXCITED. Is that too much enthusiasm? Possibly. In totally “unrelated” news, I’m taking the day off of work tomorrow. Definitely just a coincidence.
See ya’ll tomorrow!
