Staying healthy

Husband is going out of town next week for work. I will miss him. But I am trying to stay well because I plan on going on an exercise bender while he's gone. I wanted to last time he went away back in May but I was pretty much on my deathbed so I didn't leave the couch the whole time he was gone. I didn't even go to work. And I always go to work.

So for next week while he's gone I have two things I wish to accomplish:

1) Two extended workouts every day he is gone
2) Pick up extra shifts at work

It will also be nice sleeping in! I don't have to work until 10am usually but I am up at 6 every day with him. I could get up and workout before work, but I usually have more energy for it in the afternoon (for a better workout) so I will probably let my body rest in the morning, workout as soon as I get out of work and then again later at night. I'm on my feet all day at work anyway so I don't particularly like running or anything before hand because then I am too exhausted at work.

But I can't let myself get sick! I won't spend another week on the couch.

I'm not looking forward to tonight. We have to go to some thing that Husband's work is sponsoring. We have pretty much skipped out on every work function this year and some one else signed us up for this one so we kind of have to go.
It's times like this I wish I was a trophy wife.
Don't get me wrong, I'm young, blond and athletic and am constantly complimented on my smile so I guess I'm not an embarrassment to him or anything, but I don't feel like I am anything worth showing off. I think because I always feel too fat. I think in large part because of the numbers on the scale. I'm tall, so when I compare my weight to others around me I feel like I must look like a giant. A whale. A narwhal, if you will: big and awkward.

Also, I won't be able to go for a run today. We are meeting with some one about a townhouse tonight right after work and then going to the work function. My plan was to run this morning but we are currently experiencing a severe thunderstorm and I don't have a gym membership.

I miss my gym membership. Where we used to live there was a Planet Fitness which was great because it was only $10 per month and I only really use it when the weather is crappy or too cold (I actually love the cold weather but my asthma kicks in when I run in anything below about 45 degrees). I just can't justify spending $50 a month on something I hardly use. I want another cheap gym :(
