Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Huh? Where did a week go?

Well, I seem to have mentally wandered away, despite a three-day weekend and all. Why does it already seem like March or April around here? Once again I'm completely behind on the lives of my flisters.

Olympics (it was all we could do to stay awake for the Opening Ceremonies!), Westminster Dog Show (I slept through Best of Show), more Olympics (hey, Apolo, we'll take it, even if it's a fluke), Percy Jackson and the Hunky Olympians (perving over young boys and a couple older ones for two hours), more Olympics (did the Chinese really make figure skating interesting again?), Fat Tuesday (I slept through the final four hours). Etc.

Hey, there's a theme here! If I'm sleeping so much, why am I sleep deprived?

We decided to give up giving anything up for Lent this year. Frankly I just couldn't think of anything. I don't cuss much anymore (I can count on toes and fingers the number of times I've used the 'F' word in six months and I never say "Jesus" now, even in moments of passion . . . fiction doesn't count), I don't really eat sweets (my favorite thing to give up), I refuse to give up alcohol, which I rarely indulge in anyway, and my last-minute decision to give up Zuma just seemed downright dumb. So . . .

At least I ran three miles last night. This 'getting my body back' thing seems like it's taking an awfully long time. Of course, the shoulder will probably take three months more, so I might as well be patient.

Speaking of sleep, I better get to bed.

This winter I've been consistently tired. I need to change my life.

It sounds like you've really stepped onto the right track with your exercise and diet.

I just wish I could be more consistent. Time is my biggest problem. Then comes energy and finally, commitment.

(I guess I should say lack of the above.)

Oh no, you do remarkably well. Actually you and Charlie are always so busy and on the go I feel intimidated by it. I honestly know I should do more.

Well you deserve to be tired, you work so hard and stay at the office so late all of the time. I am glad you decided not to give anything up for Lent, really you already have with your new eating habits and how good you have been at exercise. I haven't seen you for over two weeks, and I bet I will see lots more change.

You are looking so good and I wish I could get myself in the mood to really start exercising. I sure need to, but right now I am just trying to stay positive about my dental work next week. I will be so glad to get it over.

Loved the dog show, but missed talking to you as much, but sure would not wake you up. Loved the best in show pick. Take care, Love Sue

I'm mad I missed Best in Show, because I had read about Sadie and wondered if she'd win. Oh, well. I'm loving the Olympics.

I just keep imagining what I'll look and feel like by summer, when my shoulder is healed and I've finally gotten back in shape. It will be worth any efforts I manage to give it.

Sounds to me as if your body is telling you more sleep and more often, and bigger bursts at a time!

How is the shoulder healing?

You're right. I think sleep is a big key for me. I just wish there were four more hours in the day to cram it all in.

The shoulder felt better after the massage, thanks for asking. Then it tightened up again this weekend and got sore. I'm looking forward to next week's massage.

The days seem to be strangely rearranged for me lately.

I am glad (and a bit envious, I must admit) that you keep working out.
19th-Feb-2010 10:12 am (UTC)
I just wish I were more consistent with the workouts. But I guess I should be glad that I haven't given up.
