Workout: Yeah…so that hasn’t really happened over the past week and a half-two weeks.
I started off by taking a few days off because of my hip. That resolved in about 1/2-1 week, but then life has sorta gotten in the way. I used to love those “motivational” quotes that are along the lines of You can do anything of you work hard or I don’t find time, I make time or We will either find a way, or make one.
I now found those types of quotes obnoxiously annoying, because sometimes there really isn’t a way or isn’t time. Or I should say, there may be a way, but at the sacrifice of something that is more important, and this doesn’t just apply to running, but any activity.
I was telling Dean how tomorrow (Sunday) was going to be really rough, because I had a florist appointment in the suburbs after my shift at 11, and then we had our premarital class at 4:00 pm. Dean was basically like, I sure wouldn’t want to get my brain scanned in the middle of a night for a potential emergency and have someone with barely 3 hours of sleep attempting to analyze it. He then said he wouldn’t let me go to the premarital class. I didn’t argue, because I knew he was right and that I was being irrational.
The thing with managing time and setting goals as an adult is that your decisions and actions don’t just affect you, they affect other people. Whether it’s running, or doing some other activity, the time you spend doing that is at sacrifice of something else. It always is, and you have determine if the tradeoff is worth the effect it will have on time with people you care about, getting other necessary stuff done in your day, your job, etc.
Sure, I can pull off little sleep, and I don’t mind doing so because I know I can push my way through it and don’t mind being uncomfortably tired for a day, but if it has any sort of negative affect on my job or my interactions with others, then I’m being selfish because my decisions are potentially affecting someone else’s life or my relationships with others.
I will get back to running shortly, but it will probably be after I’m done with nightfloat later this week.
This morning (Saturday) when I got off of my shift, I met up with one of my college friends and former roommates, whom I haven’t seen in years. It was great catching up! I am getting married on the fourth anniversary of her wedding, so we will be sharing our anniversary date together : )
I was talking with her about how I wasn’t sure if we were going to go on a honeymoon right away, in part because we wanted to save up to take a really nice one later, which would probably be the following spring.
She made the point, though, that you only have ONE honeymoon, and you could potentially keep finding a reason to put it off later as other things and expenses come up, so I am looking into ways to potentially still make a nice honeymoon happen the week after our wedding.
I asked this on facebook, and I’ll ask it to the blogging world, too: Married folks, where did you go on your honeymoon? If you could do it again, would you go somewhere else, and if so, where?
This afternoon I woke up around 6ish and called out to Dean. He didn’t answer and I was like, what the heck’s up with that?
I walked over to our den/office and found him like this:
Sweet boy didn’t want to wake me up by watching TV in our living room, so he went into the Den and watched TV with headphones on his computer.
