I Don't Want to Go

I Don't Want to Go

Not only did I not do any push-ups today, but I actually ended up at Urgent Care. I have a sinus infection, and am  now on antibiotics. Hopefully they will kick in rapidly, because four days from now I have a full run through of my Fringe show plus two performances. Right now I can't even sing a note. Should make for an interesting weekend.

No pushups today. I barely slept the night before, I am coming down with a cold or virus, I had a teaser performance for my Fringe show in the evening, and I am sure I can come up with a few other excuses. On the other hand, I am still in the midst of the Specials, which all have longer running times, so I put in more work on the treadmill than a normal day. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Today is the first time in the fifteen months of this ridiculous project that I have completely mis-timed my treadmill session length. I always set it for 55 minutes, except for specials that run longer than a normal episode. What I forgot was that today's episode ran a full 65 minutes as the season finale. So as I was watching my treadmill abruptly stopped with its programmed time finished. I was so wrapped up in the ending of the story that I literally stood there for ten minutes transfixed. 

So let's talk about that.

So, I spent the day today wearing my son's clothes. How weird is that? Seriously, because of Reasons, I wound up wearing a pair of his shorts and one of his t-shirts, and they fit my just fine. My Mini-Me is just... me I guess. I also didn't do my workout until evening because frankly I was just too dang lazy to get out of bet at 6am. I can't miss any more days, though. I have counted it out, and if I do not skip any more days then i will finish on Sunday, August 5th. I only have one day for wiggle room, because on Tuesday the 7th I fly to Las Vegas for work and I absolutely want to finish this ridiculous project before I go.

It's been a bit of a long day today. On the upside, I got to sleep in. Also on the upside, since our new roof was done on Friday it was totally fine that it's been raining non-stop yesterday and today. For the first time in eight months I am not worried about leaks or rotting wood, because we finally have solid protection. On the downside, my autistic son was adamant about going to Epcot today to visit Alice and Snow White but I knew darn well that neither of them would be out in the rain. He was twitching and shouting and on the verge of a complete meltdown before we compromised and went to the Magic Kingdom instead to visit Tinkerbell since she is indoors. Then we got very lucky and had a rare Snow White visit, which made him very happy indeed. So it all turned out okay, it was just a little stressful along the way.

Oh, and I also watched River Song die today. So let's talk about that.

Happy Free Comic Book Day everyone! Did you stop by your local shop today? Or are you too wasted on tequila for Cinco de Mayo to remember? In either case, I hope you had a great day. Personally, I slaughtered a group of hedges in my front yard that I have hated for ages now. It felt great. 

And after that, I watched River Song meet the Doctor for the very last time. So let's talk about that.

I have slam-;packed days for the next few days. I still definitely intend to hit the treadmill tomorrow morning, and I very much hope to do so sometime on Friday but it may get put off until evening. Tomorrow not only is our roof being replaced, but I have prep for a photo session on Friday plus a rehearsal for my cabaret at the Orlando Fringe Festival, plus very likely a trip to Disney with my son to avoid being in the house while said roof is being replaced. Then on Friday I have my first professional photo session to get acting headshots. It's all very exciting. As for today, I did manage treadmill and push-ups, although sit-ups fell by the wayside yet again. Oops.
