Wicked Tired

Happy Saturday all! I don't know what's wrong with me but I woke up wicked (like that Boston use of the word?) tired this morning. You know the look? Even after you have shower and get ready you still look half asleep. eyes look like little slits. I look like I was out partying all night (wasn't by the way). I haven't really been sick in about a year, so hopefully I'm not coming down with something. Tons of people at work are nursing colds and such. I've managed to escape all the bugs and viruses floating around there so far. Going to have a couple of EmergenC packets today just in case.

I think I need Bikram bad today. Which I'm going to at 3:30, it's Hannanes class. Hopefully I'll be able to find some energy to get through class. I hate being tired like this. I usually pop right out of bed ready to go. Maybe it could be work. This week was insane and yesterday a couple of extremely important projects were dropped in my lap. Usually I try to get out of the office by 5pm on Fridays to set the tone for a great weekend. My last meeting didn't end until about 5:40pm so needless to say I was at the office until about 6:30 or so. Going to take the next couple of days to recharge!

Bikram is great about helping us find our energy isn't it? You can be dead tired, dragging your way through the day. You really don't think you will even have the strength and energy to make it through the first breathing exercise. Then something always (or almost always) seems to happen. You get through that breathing and you feel this new energy racing through your body. Your body has the fresh oxygen it needs to have a great class. You get to Camel and it feels so good to open your whole body up. Good stuff. Class ends and you feel great. You are so happy you showed up. Hoping this is what happens this afternoon. Fingers crossed.

Last night before I left the office I put Pink in Savasana (I actually really did!). I figured it would be a good pose for him for the weekend. Didn't want to leave him in Locust all weekend. That would suck, huh?

Oh, and yesterday I did not have a workout. Took the night off from any sort of exercise. I think I needed it. Or maybe THAT’S why I am dead tired? My body is saying.... Uh, Traci? Did you forget something? I don't know, maybe? I didn't even go out last night or have anyone over. By the time I got home I just wanted some quiet time, some candles, a glass of wine, some dinner and a bath. So that's exactly what I did.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to sweating in the Hot Room this afternoon. I really, really am. Before I head to class I think I'm head to the Athletic Club to check out the facility again and maybe join. I mentioned in a previous post I'm thinking of adding Pilates, Zumba or Body Pump to my workouts. We'll see....

Hope you all enjoy your Saturdays. Make sure to do somethig great for yourself today.  You deserve it!

Cheers & Smiles! Traci
