Well, I was going to make a kinda meta post that I've been planning for a while, but am not up to it. So, I'll just whine about RL.
Recently, my best friend came back from Japan after 6 months. And I'm happy- I've missed her. Only, she is really disrupting my work out schedule. I've only gotten back to it just last month. I walk/run on the treadmill Sunday-Thursday when the shows I watch on TV are on. Usually between 8 and 10. I make an exception for Wednesdays and finish early because another friend comes over to watch In Plain Sight with me.
I like working out. I get that nice endorphin high and am all smiley. I like the slight ache of my legs and love stretching after. But I only feel this way while and after. I have to make myself start by psyching myself up and with the promise of my TV shows.
I only worked out two days last week. The other days I was hanging out with her. And on one of the nights I was getting spectacularly drunk and tweeting about it and probably doing other embarrassing things.
I feel selfish about it, but I don't want friends to come over after I've done four miles and am all stinky before I shower. The only reason the other friend does is that In Plain Sight has been a ritual for over a year and we both go all fangirl-squee over it. I can't hang out with the friend who just came home some other times because I work. I've also gotten into the habit of texting to make plans, and she does not have a cell phone right now. So we can't do the "let's grab something for lunch and hang for an hour before you leave" thing that I do with other friend. It's more of an all day, all afternoon thing. Plus, we really get into shows and marathon things. Like, we watched half of season 2 of Leverage before I realized she had not seen season 1. We pretty much are marathon friends who will spend days together, doing stuff.
But that's not really possible now. That does make me feel bad. Except, she has no health problems like me and is a healthy weight. I am not. I'm trying to get there but the distractions are really messing it up.
Ugh. I think I've said the same time several times. I need to sleep. I work in a few hours.
