This morning, as my husband woke up at 4:00 in order to get ready for work, I decided to log into my bank account because it’s PAY DAY! Or so, it’s supposed to be.
Tuesday/Thursday mornings I go to yoga. I love it because it’s one hour and it’s a great way to begin my day. Last week, I used up my yoga pass, so I planned to purchase one before class today. Only my bank account had other plans.
Turns out, “pay day” is not today, despite the calendar stating that it is. I’m sure it’s just a glitch in the system or something. However, this not only puts a wrench in my workout schedule, but also, my entire existence! Okay, maybe that’s a wee bit dramatic, but living paycheck-to-paycheck (or in San Francisco) means that every bit of money has its place. We count on it. Bills are set on auto-pay, checks are in the mail (sometimes post-dated). So when the system is effed up, it causes unwanted stress. And overdrafts.
Hence my need for yoga at this point.
I thought about heading to the gym and doing today’s WOD, but my arms/shoulders are rather sore from yesterday’s WOD’s and I’d rather not over-do it.
I then thought about doing yoga in our apartment, but considering we’re not heating our place in order to save money, I didn’t think my limbs would appreciate the cold slab floor.
So despite my intentions, looks like today’s workout will just be a 3-mile run to the train after work.
