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 I’ll need as much as I can get, since my last two nights of sleep have been terrible.
By the way - I am allowed to have a total girl crush on the Hip Hop instructor without being creepy - right?
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 all of the awesomeness while on my phone. But know that is what it was - awesome. He’s such a sweetheart.
This week is so insanely busy (but then again, many of my weeks are) but it’s nice when the days are all filled with awesome things.
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.
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 -
And I just got to SLEEP IN!
In my own BED!
So the first thing I did? Hop on the scale.
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 row. Maybe. But in my defense - I was sick and trapped at work and the ice cream felt so, so, sooo good on my throat. Oops.
Anyway, my last official weigh in according to Lose It! was 198.6 - so really, I got off lucky. Especially considering that weigh in was pre Thanksgiving and family weekend in Cleveland.
But enough excuses. It’s Saturday! I slept in!
And I am off to the gym. Then home to shower and get ready for my friend’s baby shower/open house. Basically, a lovely Saturday planned indeed.
