I have been in pain since Wednesday. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I hate being in pain. I think it's a sciatic nerve thing, which I haven't really had with such intensity for about 10 years. I guess I'll try and get in with the chiropractor tomorrow. I've been putting it off, because I thought it was just a passing thing, but it doesn't seem to be, so I'm just gonna have to break down and go see Dr. Baker. I guess the fact that I went to the gym probably didn't help any, but I was tired of putting it off.
But hey, I finally went to the gym! One of my co-workers went with me to help me not feel so out of place the first time, for which I thank her very much. We mostly spent time on the treadmills and took the tour of the place, which is very cool, I must say. I am really gonna like the Cardio Cinema, which is a darkened room with treadmills, stationary bikes, and ski machines (ala NordicTrack) all facing a huge screen on which they play movies. The distraction is just what I need to keep from getting bored and noticing that I am actually working out. I have an appointment with a personal trainer, Lee, on Friday. The membership comes with one free session with the trainer, to get you started and help you figure out how to use the machines and which one to use. They also have nutritionists on staff, and I hope they will help figure out a diet that takes the Graves disease into account. I meet with Ariana (one of the nutritionists) before my time with Lee. You all pray for me when I meet with him--he sounded distressingly like a drill instructor when I spoke with him Friday night, telling me that if I was late I would be subject to "more crunches". More P.T., sir, more P.T.! We like it, we love it, we want more of it!
Matt and Brian and I went out last night to dinner and to see "Catch Me If You Can". It was a pretty good movie, made better by the fact that it was "inspired by a true story". It's amazing what that kid did, without the aid of Photoshop! The production design was especially good--they really captured the feel of the mid-'60's, especially in the titles and such. After the movie, we went to our now-favorite Mexican restaurant in Georgetown and split 3 ways a double order of fajitas. Yum! Then we went to Brian's, where he said, "Stay as long as you all want!" (One of these days he's gonna learn not to say that--we finally left around 12:30 AM.)
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
