Not Pushing It

Instead of going through an unbearably uncomfortable day of work, I used a sick day to stay home and take of myself and my UTI. It was very, very weird being home alone all day long. I don’t remember the last time this has happened, and I actually kind of enjoyed it.
I took my time, making my coffee and breakfast and reading both the Trib and Sun Times. Then I got back in bed and finished up 32-fluid-oz. of cranberry juice. Now it’s hopefully working its magic.
So what else did I do on this frigid day in Chicago? Not too much, actually. I watched Ellen, and Lady Gaga was the guest star. Loved seeing Gaga talk about her newest music video “Marry the Night.” I’m telling you, that Lady is a Gagagoddess!
My infection didn’t stop me from hopping on the treadmill though. It was extremely uncomfortable, but as the great Jillian would say, “Get comfortable with being uncomfortable!”
Here’s the workout that I did. It ended up being about ~4 miles, and then I walked another 20 minutes.
I had to finish off the latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, and it was a doozy. Like straight-up, ancient Greek tragedy doozy. No wonder why Paul told me I wouldn’t like this episode.
It was gross, upsetting and really stuck with me. Still, this is probably one of the best shows on TV right now, so I know the main character will redeem himself…at least, I hope!
Off to chow done on some dinner now. I bought a can of artichoke hearts yesterday, and I’m really looking forward to adding them to a salad. Washed down by more cranberry juice, of course.
Enjoy the weekend and stay warm! I think I’m staying in tonight. No point in going out when I don’t feel my best.
What’s your favorite show on TV right now?
