Amazing what a good night's sleep will do...
…especially if you had a lousy sleep the night before…
Yes, I managed to haul myself out of bed on the first try this morning.
This new bed is firmer. I guess if we like the size of the bed we will get a new bedframe and headboard - one that is high enough to hide plastic containers of clothes underneath. Anyway, I slept much better last night. And when I woke up, I could yawn deeply without my whole rib cage hurting and although my back still ached, I got out of bed on the first try and I wasn't "fall over dead with exhaustion" tired! I imagine that it will take a little while to get rid of the aches and pains totally.
Made it to Pilates this morning.
The regular teacher is out for the holiday so we got the Saturday teacher as a substitute. She usually teaches a more advanced class (good to know because I was thinking of going on Saturdays, also) and we are more beginner. I will have to take a lot of months of beginner classes before making it to the Saturday class if this morning was any indication of what that Saturday class is like. I can't wait until tomorrow when my entire middle hurts! GAK!
Anyway, I am glad that I had dancer training. Some of the moves take a lot of coordination and an understanding of what it means to "elongate the spine", or the "neutral pilates stance", or "holding the core tight". Thank goodness I know what they are talking about. Although... since I've been away from it all, I've lost the ability to do this easily.
Tomorrow is a rest day. Thank goodness.
Tonight we will go to the Thursday night races put on by The Somerville Striders. Joseph will run, and I will mind the Dingle Doggie. Should be fun.
And I told my boss I am leaving work early to go shopping.
I love my job.
I love my boss.
He even canceled the 3pm meeting because he was mired in working on somethig distasteful.
Thank goodness he said there wasn't anything I could do to help when I offered.
Pilates 1 hour.
