Today was a good day. My co-worker had read my blog entry on s’mores in a tin and was inspired to bring s’mores to work today. LOL Yay for microwave s’mores!
Have I mentioned I love s’mores? Have I also mentioned I’m trying to lose weight? Good thing I can balance, right? Most days.
It was my 3rd meeting with Emily for some PT. She and I worked out a deal that makes personal training affordable. She’s terrific–willing to accept payment after-the-fact to get me started. We talked our way through the work out and it was over before I knew it. We did our warm-up, I did the presses, lunges, bridges, “kick-stands,” the thing on the cable machine, plank… etc. And suddenly she says “let’s stretch out”
Me: “Wait, what?”
Me: “We’re done?”
Me: “No, like, with *all* of it?”
Emily: “Yeah, we did the warm up, the plank, the [listed all of my exercises which I can’t recall at the moment…] and now we’re done!”
Me: “… Wanna do it again?”
It was great. After work I was tired out, hungry, etc. and on any other day, I would have just called it a day and went home–but Emily was waiting for me so I had to at least show up. By the time I left, I was happy, energetic, excited.. It was good.
Unfortunately, Jeff and I still didn’t get our grocery shopping done, so dinner tonight was a salad from Wendy’s:
Jeff and I ate dinner when I got home, watched an episode of Supernatural, went for a good 40 minute walk and then watched a couple more episodes of Supernatural. I’m about to hit the hay, but here are some pics from our walk:
[Sidebar: Guys, I use my phone to take the pics for my blog, and lately, the quality has been suffering. The replacement phone that I got works great as a phone but the camera is hinky. It flashes when I have flash disabled, the auto-focus is unreliable, and the exposure is defaulted to something that is too dark, so unless I compensate, the photos don’t even turn out. Based on the poor quality of the photos from my walk, among others that were too bad to publish, I think I’m going to contact Verizon again and ask for another replacement 😦 Hopefully you guys will have better pics in the near future 🙂 ]
