So I get home from work, check my personal email, then put on my gym clothes.  The thunderstorm had cleared the city and I thought I'd go for a nice walk to take in all the sights (how verdant the city is), smells, and sounds (the choir of birds happily chirping).

I made it as far as my bed.

I slept from 8:00-4:00 am.  FAIL.
But you know what?  I'm not going to let that keep me down.  I mean, my body very clearly said "I want sleeeeeep."  So even if it wasn't convenient to me, or in line with my plans for the evening, I answered the call of my body by giving it what it asked for.

And now I'm up and about and preparing for that walk.   Though, I haven't decided whether I want to go for a walk or go to the gym to use the elliptical... maybe both... as I promised my friend that my butt was hers to kick in the gym.

[[Edit:  1 hr running on the elliptical at gym on a 10/8, 4/2 interval:  7+km; 758 calories burned.   I think my body wanted that as well.]

  1. Way to go on listening to your body -- with the sleep AND the workout. I often wish mine wouldn't talk quite so loudly ... but I'm always glad when I actually listen to it :)
