 I'ma going to state first: I am an incredible idiot.


For practically cutting my workout cold turkey for almost two weeks ,because I didn't think having the proper food to keep the calorie burn up would work. Looking back I should have done something small at least. Light Yoga, or stretching. Nope. I was inflicted with Cousin Fred and wrote off working out because, well, any female can explain it to you. Then, I had a geek binge and bought Pokemon SoulSilver and the new Ace Attourney game with Miles Edgeworth for the DS. There went my epic grocery list getting cut down to essentials.

No matter, I said, for Monday I will start the week anew and get back on schedule. HAH.

Turns out I didn't need an alarm clock this morning, because NASA thoughtfully took care of that for me. I woke up to my house vibrating so hard the glass in the windows were rattling. Too bad it was foggy as hell, and I couldn't see anything by the time I flew outside, cursing myself for missing the launch.

Still, Dinsey got some great shots (thanks [ profile] cakely_yours !):

Also, Dadius, in Jacksonville, said he had a gorgeous view of the shuttle breaking the sound barrier and atmosphere all lit up in the sunrise. He said he's never seen a launch like it; that the smoke trail was coming off the shuttle like a boat's wake. :D Gorgeous!

Interesting way to start a new day, at least! I got half my workout done before having to take a nap again before work. I knew I was in trouble then, lol! My job is actually physically demanding in the fact I have to set up a bunch of small events all shift. Tables, chairs, A/V equipment, stage units, whatever the student group or client requires, I have to move and situate. I knew to take the workout easy. 

But, god damn, if doing the second part of the workout (notably the more extreme half) didn't attempt murder on me (would it be accidental suicide?) and it took every ounce of my lazy ass to make the recovery smoothie and eat my powerbar. In hindsight, again, I probably should not have worked out that second time with a growling stomach.

It's been a stupid day.

I'm going back to playing my Pokemanz and watching Classic Doctor Who.
