I have spent a lot of time being bummed and frustrated and not much time seizing the “unemployed moment” so to speak. Today I seized my moment and it was fantastic.
I went for a run in the morning and hung around the house most of the day until the Germany-Algeria soccer game where I rode my bike over to meet my friends to watch. My one friend is a huge Germany fan so we were cheering our butts off and getting super stressed out. Of course I was using the bathroom for the first goal in the 93rd minute. SERIOUSLY!!
After the game, we all started riding bikes around Charleston. It was a glorious night. The heat was down, there was a nice breeze and almost no humidity. That DOES NOT happen in Charleston on June 30th, let me tell you.
Locking up at one of our stops
After riding around for quite a while we decided ice cream was probably necessary so we had ice cream for dinner. Yep, five year old’s in 20 year old’s bodies!
Days/nights like this are why you live downtown in a city/have 20’s to live through. It was so nice to let loose and have a good time pretty much being a kid all day when I have been so stressed out lately. So glad I have 6 more years of 20’s left!! 🙂
Todays hot yoga was wayyyy infinitely harder than the first one. Literally in the first class I didn’t rest once and this one I was resting like every few poses once we really got going. It was taking everything in my body just to stay in the room. It was so much hotter. I don’t know if I am completely making this up in my head or what. My friend I have been going with thought it was so much hotter too. I am so glad I got my couple mile jog in with Casey before I went though because I was definitely too spent after ward to think about doing anything. I am so exhausted now I am pretty sure I am not going to get anything done tonight!
Every time I really wanted to give up though I remembered it was FREE CONE DAY at Ben and Jerry’s. Talk about serious motivation!
When class was finally over and I went home, showered and got dinner made for us (fantastic stir fry with brown rice, broccolli, red peppers, onions and bean sprouts, yum!). After taking a few minutes to digest we got in the car and headed for ICE CREAM!!
However, once we got down there, we were told it ended at 7pm (not 11 when the store closes) and that the store actually closed early as soon as it was over. HUGE BUMMER!!
We had ice cream on the brain so we trekked on over to Kilwin’s and got some there. I had cappuccino chocolate chip in a sugar cone and it was fabulous. Once we walked around and enjoyed that, we headed home, where I immediately realized I left my phone at the ice cream shop, so back to Kilwin’s we went.
What a debacle that whole thing ended up being, but worth it? I think so!
Hope you got your free cone, unlike me! 😦
