Life’s necessities

I got out of work at that awkward time today. The time that meant I couldn’t make the 4:30 yoga class, but would be way too early for the 6:15 class. I drove to the studio anyway and found myself a comfortable parking spot.

After about 10 minutes of waiting in the car I got a text message from Jason telling me to “have fun in my stinky yoga class”. I haven’t seen much of him lately between his schedule (work) and mine (work…ing out).

So I texted back, “I miss you. You should come.”
“I miss you too. You should skip it and hang out tonight.”

And all of a sudden I was driving home.

This got me thinking about subconscious decision making. Have you ever tried to motivate yourself through a tough run with encouraging words like, “You’re doing great. Just keep running. You’ve got this. You’re doing it.” And then all of a sudden you’re walking?

I spent five years putting on 15 pounds and intermittently attempting and failing to get back in shape. Then one day I was eating right and running again. (And blogging about it…where did that come from?) I don’t remember deciding to do any of these things.

Sometimes you just don’t have to think about the things you need most in life. Like this guy. Isn’t he cute?
