There's Nobody to Blame But Myself

No, this isn’t one of those “Woe is me I went on a binge” posts.  But what I did WAS pretty stupid.  Remember that prescription for which I took an eight mile bike ride to order and then another ride to go pick up?   I lost it. 

Seriously.  I’m totally freaked out.  I never lose anything.  It’s part of my built in Type A Personality Defense System.  So what does that mean?  I had to ride to Dr. Tom’s office again today to get a replacement.  Normally, I’d be tickled at the prospect of outdoor exercise in the sunshine.  Even Olivia would be tickled.

But it’s windy today.  Windier than that first ride.  The sustained wind today is 26 mph.  It took me 38 minutes to get to Dr. Tom’s office, and I thought I was going to die at three miles out.  It took me only seventeen minutes to get back to my office with the wind at my back.
So. Let’s look at the bright side, shall we?  I made it back alive.  I can tell that I got a great workout today because my quads feel like jelly.  I got DirtBike’s prescription just in the nick of time, as he took his last pill this morning.  Tuesday is the pharmacist’s ‘late’ night so I can get it filled on the way home from work.

  1. I don't know if I'm Type A or just anxiety-laden beyond all reason, but yeah… I'd be freaked. Glad you got the new one, and yup, that whole workout thing is awesome!

  2. Sounds like a great workout, but why didn't you just call it in? The doctor's office could have done that, so all you had to do was pick it up.

  3. and oh yeah, a favorite line from some self-help book—“That's not like me.” Like you said, “I never lose anything.” that's great to reinforce yourself rather than cut yourself down over it.and an old goodie from my mom, from some women's conference years ago–intelligent people sometimes do stupid things. yep. goes with being human. Keep on lovin' yourself!

  4. Great Advice, Lynn!!The script is for DirtBike's ADD meds – controlled substance – so they cannot be called in by the doctor. I have to pick up the prescription in person, show i.d., sign all sorts of papers, and then do the same at the pharmacist. You think they would cut me some slack, since the Dr. has been our Dr. since C.A.S.N. was born, and the pharmacy is a non-chain, real pharmacy in our teeny tiny town and the pharmacist KNOWS who I am! We're neighbors!!It all worked out. 🙂

  5. I guarantee you that it was the ride AGAINST THE WIND that made you work harder that helped the most fitness-wise. The “extreme” moment in exercise reaps the greatest benefits. It's not the easy ride. It's the HILL or the BIG WIND IN THE FACE. So, maybe it's GOOD you forgot and had to do that. Your body got a nice lil shake up. :DBut why do the boobies have to shrink? (And with gold prices, when I resize, I want every speck of gold back from my 18K yellow and 14K white gold rings. EVERY GOLD DUST particle. hah.)
