All I Can Think About Now...
…is napping. This week has been killer on me sleep-wise. Looking forward to lots of sleep this weekend, gymming, cooking/prepping for Round 2 of the Game on Diet, and spending a little time w friends. Oh & saying goodbye to Lucky tomorrow. Ha.
Nap? Did someone say nap for Kari? Apparently it’s not allowed. Seriously. Is it Saturday at 6 PM yet? Good Lord.
Return to Hip Hop!
Tonight was my first hip hop class in awhile. How “awhile” - you might ask? Just the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Ugh. My body definitely feels everything we did… I am literally aching. Pending dog-barking-at-wind-situation tonight, I should sleep like a rock for the next 7.5 hours…. And really, I should have been asleep an hour & a half ago. I’m sure...
This annoying little whine/bark thing continued all night. I’m really earning my $200, that’s all I can say!
Also, have I mentioned I am dog sitting this week? And it’s not going so well? After my workout I decided to take a bath. A bath I promised to reward myself with once I got back from the gym. The bubbles were made. The water was drawn. The relaxing was to begin. And then this proceeds to happen. The entire time I’m in the bath. Don’t let the crying fool you - this dog...
The Return of the Late Night Workout
Was supposed to work online tonight… Left the theatre, took a coworker home, put on my comfy clothes & curled up in front of the fire to work w my laptop. Realized there was a mix up in the schedule. Didn’t really have to work. I had the night free. Could go to the gym. Instead I fell asleep to a What Not to Wear repeat. Complete bliss, I know. Woke up a little while later,...
Welcome Back Workout!
I’d like to thank the Kardashians & the Kylie’s Sweet 16 Episode (which I’ve never seen!) for my 625 calories burned. Good God I miss individual TVs on every machine at the gym.
24 Hours of Incredible Awesomeness
Last night? Work Christmas Party at my boss’ house - which had a spectacular view of Pittsburgh’s skyline. A great evening w coworkers and laughing and dancing (yes! dancing!) and lots of homemade food. Awesome. Today? Two hour lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in the city with - Dreamy McDreamerson. Just me & him. Which went so well and was so fun I can’t even text...
Me: (in a sweatshirt, without makeup, hair pulled back) Okay, I'm leaving.
Sister: Where are you heading - the gym?
Me: Oh. No. I haven't been going lately.
Sister: Why? I thought you had been going a lot.
Me: Well I was - but I have been so busy I haven't made time to go. And I have a million things to do today so I'm running out to Target and the grocery store and to drop off a casserole for a coworker who just had major knee surgery before I have to work online tonight.
Me: Okay, now I feel really quilty. I didn't even realize YOU realized I went to the gym so much before.
Let's Start this Saturday Off Right!
So after a mini unplanned hiatus from the gym (and posting on Tumblr!) due to being sick and overwhelmed at work and just general life exhaustion - It’s SATURDAY! And I just got to SLEEP IN! In my own BED! So the first thing I did? Hop on the scale. 199.8 Which isn’t as bad as I was expecting after a week of no gym and being sick and maybe having Dairy Queen blizzards two days in a...
