Now that's different

A few changes going on. Yesterday went down to work on the treadmill and there was someone in there waiting for the football game. The treadmills are in the community lounge with a big screen tv, couch, chairs, etc that is open to anyone living here. Anyway I saw the lady sitting there and still went on the treadmill. I was considerate and didn't turn the tv on, but normally I would have just not gone in. I would have used it as an excuse to not workout. Not anymore.
Tonight I was down there and had just started when the big screen tv was turned on. Ok, no biggie, especially since I was there first. She just sat down and made herself comfortable. Then some guy comes and starts on the second treadmill. Ok, a little nervous, but I kept going. Then a different lady comes over and starts talking to the two of us on the treadmills. She was curious about it since she's never used one before and she said she's seen me down there before. She also complimented my butt. I don't remember the last time I've had anyone compliment my body. Sure, she's odd, but it felt good. The encouragement I needed.
I read somewhere that drinking 100% grape juice is supposed to help prevent stomach bugs. There have been several going around since New Year's and I am paranoid so decided to try it last week. It's hard to deal with 400 extra calories a day, but if it works it may be worth it. I didn't have any today because there were no new cases at work, but may start up again if someone else gets sick.
My husband is finally encouraging me to exercise when I get home. I'm hoping to get him to start, but he has to heal first. He pulled his hamstring and then re-injured himself yesterday.
