I really wonder if I'm just dealing with spring allergies, as everyone is all stuffed up around me and blaming the trees. I don't want to have allergies, because I am not going to shut myself up inside when it's beautiful out. As I told Anne earlier today on twitter, "It seemed like only rich kids had allergies when I was growing up." I have never actually gotten any guidance from a doctor on allergies because if I do have them, they're pretty mild and I am rarely at the doctor's anyway. I mentioned it once to my doctor and he said, "Take Sudafed." It works for colds too, so either way, I'm good. I took some last night and slept like a baby.
I took it easy all of yesterday and today, even though I did go in to work, my work is sedentary at a computer most of the time. I went out for a half-hour walk with my husband in the park and I felt like the fresh air helped, so maybe it's a cold and not allergies. Who knows.
I have my fitness evaluation tomorrow. I almost cancelled it but it was so hard to schedule in the first place that I decided I'd better just tough it out. I hope I made the right decision. It's first thing in the morning and then I have a meeting in the afternoon and an open house for our program in the evening. Hopefully I'll be feeling (and looking) much better by then. I am most worried about the body fat percentage thing -- but I trust the instructor and think she'll keep it positive. Mostly, I'm doing this to help me step up my training and feel like I have some direction.
