Workouts: Tuesday - upper body, Wedensday - a little gentle yoga (sore!)
Holy cow, I'm sore! Good sore. Hurts-so-good sore. I love this feeling - makes me think my muscles are growing even when I'm just sitting at my laptop. And I had spinach for lunch so you can call me Popeye.
I just read an article in the New York Times Health section that says icing sore muscles doesn't really work. No kidding - you can read it here. While I occasionally take the odd Tylenol, mostly I just stretch through it. Especially in January because who the heck wants to use ice when it's -150C outside.
I'm at a loss these days for something to read. I've devoured almost every book that's caught my eye in the last few months from The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo series, to The Hunger Games, to The Paleo Solution for diet advice.....I'm out of ideas. I could grab a classic (maybe re-read Pride and Prejudice?) or something heavy like The Scarlet Letter......nah, I don't think so.
The problem is that I spend way too much money on books. It's an obsession, really. Friends suggest that I should buy an electronic reader because books are cheaper, but I think the obsession might just take over my life. I'd have no willpower or control. Like chocolate ice cream.
When I think about it, it's not a bad problem to have in the big scheme of life, don't you think?
