While I am not exactly ecstatic about returning to school tomorrow, I have learned over the past few days that there are two very substantial reasons that that I return as soon as possible.
REASON #1. Today I realized that I went the entire day yesterday without showering. I meant to shower - in fact, I had every intention of showering; it didn't happen.
What is really gross is that I had actually gone through two full-fledged workouts in which I was covered in sweat - one on Friday and then one yesterday. After my second workout, I sat around in my perspiration soaked gym shorts for at least an hour, only to completely forget entirely about washing it off my greasy body. After further research and contemplating, I have outlined my day yesterday, providing ample reason why showering was not a priority.
7:45 - Woke up and realized I was going to be late for my job tutoring at Sylvan. In spite of my urge to shower, I skipped it.
11:30 - Returned home to find Lincoln playing with a friend from school. Cathi leaves me to watch them while she runs some errands. Showering is not an option.
1:00 - Lincoln leaves for a party, Cathi and Calder nap and I work out in the basement for over an hour.
2:15 - Exhausted and drippy, I return to lay on the living room floor for the next 45 minutes.
3:00 - Thought about showering; didn't.
5:00 - Cathi makes a nice pizza pie from Papa Johns.
5:30 - I was too busy celebrating mentally Utah's win over Alabama to shower.
6:00 - Again, thought about showering, but now it's 6:00, so what's the point?
As you all can clearly see, I have hunkered into such a routine of laziness over the past two weeks, I have become a creature of scum, froth and riffraff. It's time to go back to work.
REASON # 2. Over the holidays, I have put on 8 pounds. Now, my mom has informed me that Weight Watchers informed her that the average person puts on 8 pounds over the holidays. Well, call me Mr. Median USA, because I definitely supersized myself this past month.
I believe that the problem stems from the fact that I counted 13 days in a row in which we went out to dinner. Of course, this would not have been a problem if I had ordered salad every meal. Sadly, I could not help but overindulge. In fact, I had a full helping of cheese fries at the Training Table two out of three days! (The day in the middle we went to McDonalds.)
I need to get back to my normal dietary schedules and flush my system of 3 weeks of sewage.
