Go With The Flow

My alarm went off at 5:30. And though I did wake with it, after going to the bathroom I jumped back into bed for another half hour. Not to sleep but to read headlines and stories that caught my attention. I was a little excited too, for it looked sunny out.

That idea was soon dashed as I realized it is overcast and windy. Grrrrrrrr I just want to sit outside in the sun. Relax. Read. It is not that I cannot read inside, I can, it is that I want my sunshine! Mind I have looked ahead and it is suppose to be a nice weekend so maybe I will still get my sun time in.

Made myself a cup of coffee and chilled. Played games on my phone. Text. Which reminds me I have not text mom who apparently will not text me because she might disturb me. Doing what? I am on holidays. And even if I was busy I can answer later. Hi mom.

I knew that I needed to exercise. Was not sure when I was going to but it had to be done. I decided to get it done so that for the rest of the day I could just relax. Have a nap. Read.

I pulled up my Nike exercises and raised my eyebrows at the next one in the series. A runner’s 4×4 core movement. I am actually impressed with what I was able to accomplish. Like super impressed with my strength.

The next up was yoga and I thought why the hell not.

So I did 20 minutes of yoga, bringing my heart rate down while still getting a work out. Turns out it was an evening one to aid in relaxation and sleep. So that nap will soon be forth coming.

I feel amazing today.

Unwanted Visitor

A single call
one person's world as they know it.
There is no getting away.
Refusing to acknowledge
means certain death
but to give it a name
it's claim to fame
gives it teeth to grip and hold with
while one twists and turns
fighting with every breath to win.
it wends its way
through veins
through muscle
through tissue
transgressions personified
if you believe the people
touched by god.
It is evil.
It is torture.
It strikes without warning.
It knows no riches.
It knows not poverty.
Once it grips
the fight is on
with outcomes given in percentages
the real only known outcome.
