Barring a few minor things like the normal morning 'runs', I actually feel - gasp - pretty damn good this morning! I'm sure work will no doubt change that, LOL. Usually does. But that's okay. For now, I feel great! Like the song says, 'I got a little change in my pocket goin' jing-a-ling-a-ling...' I know you can't buy happiness, but when you have a little extra to buy one or two things (BOOKS! ALL THE BOOKS!) it does help quite a bit.
The past two days I've been doing a HIIT routine - low impact - for beginners, since I don't fancy getting frost bite outside walking. I can really feel the difference. I was struggling along to the easy version of the easy version (LOL) and had to tone even that down because I was having problems with low blood pressure. I can feel a difference in my core muscles, though. I'm joining a gym this month (discount - yay!) so I can walk inside when it's too hot or cold. I think if I alternate these two - walking and the beginners low impact HIIT routine - I won't get too burned out on either one.
I still haven't managed to watch any more of Supernatural. I love being able to binge watch on Netflix, but Castiel is so important to me - I can't stand it when things happen to him. When he became human after Metatron took his Grace, and Dean sent him away - I bawled. Like a fucking baby. OMG, I can't handle that right now. Right now I need Castiel to be surrounded by all things light and beautiful. hey, stop laughing at me - that's really real shit there. Castiel is my go-to safe place when I need to wrangle my anxiety. Maybe if I ever get a handle on my stress and anxiety I can start watching the Supernatural writers torture him again.
