Tonight, I took care of myself.  Of everything, I think that's what matters most...being tired and sick with either M or G's cold isn't helping my physical feeling or my mood, and by the end of the day I felt pretty damn shitty and was in one hell of a funk.  There was just enough lip to cling onto that I got my ass down to the gym, because I knew I needed it.  Knew it would help...and it did. 

Often, it's hard for me to take that step, to tip myself over into doing something good for me when I'm in that kind of a mood.  It'll be better when the sun comes back more, or at least when there's some snow so I can get some exercise and some sunshine at the same time (although, really, how much vitamin D can you make when the only part of your body that's exposed is the strip between your neck gaiter and your goggles? And you're covered in sunscreen anyways...).

I think all the yoga in the 'burg really helped- it got me back into the habit of caring for myself and working out regularly.  Seeing one of the other regulars at Maria's was awesome, especially when she gave me a big hug when I walked in with Kim, before getting us a table.  Made me feel all sparkly inside.  I love sangha.

Almost time for another 30 day challenge downtown...I'm going to have to figure out how to do this one...it's a lot farther from home now, and I'm not taking a week off work like last year.  I'll just have to go from work every day, and go closer to home on weekends... it's so worth it, in the end.

Of course, so is sleep, especially when fighting a cold.  One more way to nurture...

sweet dreams :)
