W37, Day 5: Gym avoidance

Well, I need to admit that I never made it to the gym yesterday or today.  I didn't go on Thursday because that is my normal rest day, but I was so wiped out on Friday that I just decided that it wasn't going to happen and I'd make it up today.  All well and good, except that I woke up today with a stuffy head, runny nose, and a sense of fatigue larger than my waist.  I dragged myself out of bed and vaguely watched my Saturday morning house shows, hoping I'd pull it together and go to the gym after my shows were over.  My shows ended and I crawled back in bed and slept for another couple hours.  The nap and subsequent shower still didn't get my body rolling.  I decided I'd do something fun to get me going and then get myself to the gym--I'd go to the mall to cash in an excellent coupon.

So, ventured out to the mall, but I still felt so much drag.  Just walking from one end of the mall to the next was enough to totally poop me out.  What the heck?  I went to two department stores, looked around, and called it done.  Now, please note that normally I'm an endurance shopper, but not today!  On the bright side though, Sears carries the Land's End brand and I have been waiting since spring to fit into their size 18 jeans.  This would be significant because it crosses the line from plus size to regular sizing.  Every time I've tried them, I haven't been able to get them to fit around my waist.  I figured today I'd be able to button them up since even with last week's gain, I've lost about ten pounds since I'd last tried.  I put them on and.....they didn't fit.  They were too big.  How cool is that?  I tried on the 16 and while it was a bit snug, it fit.  I almost bought the pair because they looked awesome, but they were fifty bucks and I shouldn't spend that much on such a non-necessity.  But it was still awesomely awesome.

On the not so awesome side, I never made it to the gym and I just feel like crawling in bed and staying there in a warm, dark cave for a few days, but I'm sure I'll be more perky tomorrow and I'll drag my butt to the gym tomorrow, full strength or not.  In the meantime, I'm just going to go with the tired for today and let it be.
