So here I am on Monday morning after an eventful weekend and several days prior. Everything has been going really well as my life continues to become very predictable (in an awesome way). I haven't felt one split second of pain in probably a month now. My only complaint has been my sleeping patterns which are erratic and often leave me moody or zombie-like as I proceed along in my day to day activities. As of right now my nephew is asleep in his swing after a morning of running errands with me. He loves to stay awake and observe everything that's going on but the second we get home he's out like a light. Not that I'm complaining.
I spent last week watching him and going out almost every night in some social capacity. Every week I grow more and more amazed at how effortless life is now. I almost feel like I've been transported back to my early twenties. I'm not sleeping enough, drinking a lot, eating all the wrong things, and yet my body is keeping up. When I wake up after a late night or a night of indulging in one two many adult beverages, I feel like a normal person feels; hungover but able to pinpoint what I need to do to feel better. Before, if I even indulged in anything too much, whether food or beverage, I was always paying for it the next day beyond any hangover or sleep depravation you could imagine. I guess I am enjoying this in between phase as an excuse to let loose a little bit before I get serious about my fitness again.
I have so much planned in the next couple of months that I am beyond excited about. Tomorrow I'm going to the Flyers game for my brothers birthday and next week I am going to New Orleans to visit my best friend. When I return I have a few concerts I plan on attending as well as beginning all of the hoopla for my other best friend's wedding. Whew. I have a feeling this time is going to fly by, but I am going to enjoy every (healthy) minute of it.
