Why am I up at 5:30 a.m.? My own sneezing woke me up. As much as I'm enjoying sleeping with the windows open, I think there must be an evil, new pollen coming in as of this morning.
It's partly my own fault. I've been remarkably allergy symptom-free since I started using a neti pot a few weeks ago, but I haven't been very consistent about using it over the last few days. A little more discipline about that for the rest of the spring should help a great deal.
Allergies aren't the only thing about spring that's bugging me. I'm having severe wardrobe issues as well. I spent the entire winter wearing long-sleeved t-shirts with regular t-shirts layered over them. Now that it's too warm for that, I'm faced with exposing my pale, flabby upper arms. Seriously, nobody wants to see that.
I suppose it would help if I spent some time working out. Maybe if I had just a teensy bit of muscle definition here and there, I wouldn't feel so strongly about keeping every square inch of my arms and legs covered. I'll just add "Actually use gym membership" as #856 on my to-do list. It's as good as done!
I really do need to establish a new morning routine, and getting up early to go to the gym would be an excellent start. As long as I'm up now...nah, I think I'll just take a shower, read my favorite morning blogs and get to work early. Perhaps tomorrow morning I'll take a turn on the treadmill. Yeah, tomorrow...
