I was in a funk today.
The plan was to help out at the big Phoenix/Tempe Rock N’ Roll marathon. I chose not to run in it because it’s a huge corporate event and registration was expensive, but there’s no true charity partner to benefit from ALL that money they’re bringing in. After I signed up, I was like, “wait, WHY am I volunteering for them?”
Despite that, I was looking forward to being part of the experience, but silly me, I was so excited to have tomorrow off that I turned my alarm from “Weekdays Only” to “Off,” and when I set it for today, I didn’t turn it “On.” Oops. I slept in all the way until 9, way past the start time!
So that fail set up the rest of the day and I just didn’t know what to do with myself. I recently discovered ALL the awesomeness of Hulu, so that took up some time. I had to run out for my caffeine hit. I ate some leftover pizza. I baked cookies I didn’t want. I finally watched Easy A, which was just the kind of teen comedy that has been missing in my life! Mostly I bounced around my bitty 700 square feet apartment trying to figure out why I couldn’t figure out today.
Then I kinda forced myself out of the funk. I changed into my gym clothes and cleaned up before my 5:00 date with Jersey Shore and the treadmill and rocked out seven miles instead of my planned six, partly due to the cute guy who got on the machine next to me at my mile five. I pretended for a bit that I had a fit boyfriend and we like to go to the gym together (my favorite boyfriend ever told me he thought going to the gym together was lame, what’s THAT about?) and I mentally added “will workout with me” to THE list.
My cabin fever has reached its pinnacle, so I sought out plans with a few friends, which I really don’t do that often, I’m usually more of a tagalong and now I’m heading out for that! Hopefully it’s just the cure for my funky day and if not, I have tomorrow, Sunday 2.0, off to try again!
