Day 234

Yep, my body is hurting. Between the run and the yoga, I feel like I've been hit by something big. Not necessarily a truck, but perhaps like a wayward shopping trolley. No. Bigger than that. A hopper ... you know ... one of those industrial size wheelie bins. Yeah. I feel like I've been hit by a hopper. Add that to the irritable sinus that likes to flare up at this time of year, and I feel a bit shite.

Why do I keep getting irritable stuff? Irritable knees, irritable bowel, irritable sinus. According to Louise Hay in "You Can Heal Your Life", sinus issues are often caused because of irritation to one person (someone close). Would that be my husband? Maybe. So my bits are getting irritable because I am irritated and it's all his fault. Huh! Go figure. Yes, he can be a bit irritating. But it could just be that I am an irritable bitch.
So what do I do to fix it? Apparently I should declare peace and harmony within. So here goes:

"I declare peace and harmony indwell me and surround me at all times. All is well."

Nope. Didn't work. Ohhhh .... it's a mantra .... an affirmation ... I'm supposed to repeat it over and over. I could I suppose. Or I could just grab the sinutab, and kick my hubby out. That might work too ...

Ok, let's talk about something else.

This year seems to be speeding up. It's day 234 of my 40th year and that is starting to freak me out. It's going too fast! I promised to blog for a year. I thought I would have more wonderful things to blog about within that year! I mean, not that my things aren't wonderful, I just thought I would have achieved some major goals.

Oh well, I've still got 130 days to get it sorted I suppose. That's a lot of days. I can get a lot done in 130 days.

Maybe that is what is irritating me? Perhaps that is the cause of my irritable sinus (and bowels and knees). And here I was blaming poor Derek! I have irritable ageism and irritable goals which are creating an irritable blog. Irritations all around! Louise Hay has nothing to say about irritable blog ... interesting.

The heater doesn't help. With the sinus I mean. Gas ducted air-conditioning really irritates my sinus. Time for fresh air. Given Wednesday is another blog and jog day I should just get my gear on and get out there to suck up some morning crispness. Only I'm not going to jog. I've decided to go for a bike ride instead. Might as well add bike bum to my list of irritants ...

Ten minutes later:
It's still very dark outside. And cold. And rainy. Will put bike ride on hold for a bit and pack the school lunches instead.

Twenty minutes later: What the? When is the sun going to start waking up? Come on. I wanna hit the tar ...

Thirty minutes later: Is my clock wrong? It says it's 6.35. Surely birds and sun should both be starting to rise by now? And you wonder why I'm irritated ...

Forty minutes later: Lunches done and sky just starting to turn lighter. It's raining hard out there! I can hear it on the roof ...

A full hour later: It's 7.05am. The world is still in shadow. The rain is pelting down out there. Sitting here staring out the window ain't going to change anything. It could rain all day and I'll remain idle, or it could rain all day and I'll feel some exercise satisfaction. Time to suck it up princess and get on your bike ...

65 minutes later: As I walked out the front door my 6 year old son woke up and pleaded with me not to go. Please Mummy. You might fall off your bike. Please Mummy. You will get sick. Please Mummy. I don't want you to go. Hey, what can I say to that? Ok. I won't go. Let's do yoga instead ...

90 minutes later: What? Fish pose with both legs in the air? I don't think so. That yoga session was ridiculously difficult. I think I would have preferred the rain. Anyway, it's done. My day can begin. Off to shower ...

Have a good one! May your day be irritable-less ...

  1. You need a jogging buddy to keep you safe and honest.

    Please do not tell me you are going to stop blogging when the year is up?

  2. Ahhh. Another DFF conundrum! To blog or not to blog ... that is the question ...
    Let's just say I'm keeping my options open.
    Besides, I don't actually plan on turning 41 ...so if I stay 40 forever then I need to blog forever ...

  3. Okay keep blogging forever. That would work but what happens when your boy is 40 and you are too? That would just be bizarre.

    Yay for doing the yoga.

  4. Yes, keep blogging - I love it. Oh, and that pain ... that's the DOMs :( Seek out a detox sauna box - truly the best for pain and irritableness and in the cold weather a sure fire solution to the aches and pains. Plus added bonus, I usually find I wake up a little lighter the day after :)
