time for change
i went to the gym today for the first time in ages! there has been a civil worker in vancouver for 3 months. while the outside workers (garbage, recycling...) and the libraries (go librarians!) are still on strike, the inside workers are back to work. this means that the community centres, day cares, and all the offices at city hall are back to work (i hear there was a line at the permit office that started at 4am today).
though i really really support civil workers getting better treatment, i am excited that they are back (as i bet they are too!) i know a lot of this has to do with making sure that they don't get screwed over when the olympics which are happening in vancouver in 2010.
i've been feeling really messy for the last few weeks. rather low energy. feeling low about my body and my self worth. grr. it comes and goes it waves and this wave almost knocked me over. i know that exercise really helps me keep in bright spirits so i'm so glad to be able to have the setting to do that in. i hadn't felt very inspired to run or go for bike rides....so to be feeling pumped to go to the gym is a momentum i'm eager to follow.
