After a summer in which I attempted to eat numerous times at every ice cream parlor within a 10 km radius, I decided that this morning it was time to head back to the gym.
Alarm set for 5:17am - check
Got meself out of bed by 5:45am - check (I am queen of the snooze button)
Teeth brushed, hair brushed - check, check
Dressed in not-so-stylin sweats and t-shirt - check
Out the door at 5:55am - check
Arrive at rec centre at 6:02am - check
Notice I'm the only brave one to master Ike and dark morning at 6am - feeling pretty good about myself- check
Walk into rec centre and notice pool is missing something...water!! - check
Notice 'cage' is still around check-in place - check
See yellow tape across entry to walking track - check
See teeny tiny little sign that says rec centre is closed for renovations for 1 week...starting today! - check
Feel saddened by missing walking - ummm...nope!!
Quickly realize that I have 1 more week to SLEEP IN until 6:30am - CHECK!
Want to know what's kinda funny? After a 3 month exercise hiatus for all of us I'd talked a friend and her hubby to join me this morning. Oops!!
What were we to do? What any good Canadian would do at a moment like this...we took our nasty, sweat clad, barey coiffed, unmake-uped selves and headed to Timmys! We may have frightened a few people in the process but we had a great time anyway!
Tomorrow I sleep in and next Monday we try again.
