My iPhone

There are consquences for not exercising. 

My week started with an out-of-town trip for a conference.   It was only for a couple of days, but I purposely chose not to take my work-out clothes or my shoes.  I figured I would take the break and just relax while I could.

Well. 

Monday after the conference, I was going to go take a quick dip into the pool (instead of running on the treadmill) and then go read by the creek for a while.  So what happens?  I dropped my phone into the pool.  It was completely submerged and drowning.  I got it out as quickly as I could and dried it off, but it started buzzing and wouldn't stop.  You could see water behind the screen and nothing I did was helping.

I quickly went back up to my hotel room to get dressed so I could go to Wal-Mart to get a bag of rice.  Because that's what you hear.  Stick it in a bag of rice. 

Now, 5 days later, it is dried out, but I can't get it started.  I can hook it up and go through the restore process, but then it immediately says I have to restore it again.  I think it's a gonner.  And it makes me really sad.  Because if I would have exercised instead of trying to relax by the pool, I wouldn't have dropped my cell phone into the water.

Consequences.  I am suffering them.

Thursday was Spin class, which was good, but I think I could have pushed a little harder.  It just gets kind of boring doing the same thing.  I have to push myself and just remember to be glad that I have a cycling class I can go to.  If I would have thought about it, I should have gotten some swimming in as well, because YET AGAIN the natatorium is closing for another swim meet.  Until Tuesday!!

And I still have no iPhone.
