I went to my Monday night TRX class after quite an absence, and was amazed at how weak I had gotten. I was teasing with the instructor when she asked where I had been. I told her my nose was constipated. She looked at me funny. I continued to explain. The last 2-3 days I was sick, I could breath, but there was a lot of crap stuck in my sinuses that would not come out! I got a quite a chuckle out of that. Of course she went on to kick my butt in the workout, and I went home a tired, sweaty mess with completely clear sinuses.
The other side product of being sick was losing my taste for wine. I tried having a glass Friday night with dinner, and I was not interested in finishing it. So it’s been a couple of weeks of being alcohol free, and I’m thinking I will just keep that status, and see how my physical self responds over time. It would be great to lose some weight.
One of the other great quandaries going on in my head, and on my head is what to do with my hair. Do I go gray? Looking at the now substantial roots of gray, and thinking about having to go through the color, highlight process….do I want to just let the natural gray come out? Do I have the patience to do that? I see more and more beautifully gray-haired women own their silver tresses like champions. It’s very motivating, I can tell you. What I have to decide, is it for me?
I have to do something quick, decision-wise, on the hair. I’m on the road again Friday, and this skunky gray streak down the middle of my head won’t pass muster.
Today I’m grateful for choices. I’m grateful to be feeling better, to be able to work out, and to be back to work.
