‘Ello folks! I’m so excited! I actually had some downtime at work to work on creating some new running maps on my mapmyrun account for around my new neighborhood! Too bad this would have been the PERFECT week to run, next week starts dumping rain again. I’ll have to stock up on some rain gear, maybe get a new pair of shoes so I can rotate drying them. Anyways, I’m really excited about it! I feel like I need that outdoor cardio BURST to make me feel alive again. The treadmill is such a draaaaag. I hate the sound, the stale air, watching the depressing news on the monitors in front of me. Seems kind of silly too, staying in one place, moving, going no where. It’ll be nice to explore around my house too, find out which streets are great to run on, where the hills are, etc. Pumped I tell ya’, ab-so-fucking-lutely pumped.
I didn’t go to the gym like I had originally planned in my week of written workouts. I was surprised with a meeting reschedule at work that required me to come in an hour early. I needed to come in even early to practice for the meeting. The meeting went really well though, I think that’s also why I’m in such good spirits. It was definitely something to check off my list of things to do. This meeting was rescheduled so many times too, I just wanted to get it over with. The butterflies in my stomach and the un-soaked up coffee made me jittery and want to vomit. I did really well in my Quarterly Metrics Presentation to our client though, so I’m happy now.
I’ve been eating much MUCH better lately too! Practicing that self control for when bikini prep rolls around. It’s really hard working with someone who has a part time job as a baker, and people love bringing in treats, and the catering ladies are always snagging new pastries and goodies for us. Halloween is also tomorrow and I have a fat bag of 157 pieces of Starbursts, Skittles, M&M’s, and Snickers! Maybe I’ll stash a few Snickers and dump the rest of the bowl in whoever shows up at 10pm. Lucky kid…..
Tomorrow I plan on hitting the gym HARD. Gonna tear the shit out of my legs, make them feel like hell, but somehow manage to workout Friday and run this weekend with my husband. I’ll definitely try to post some pictures. You can also follow my instagram that is dedicated to my progress pictures and inspiration. Anywhoooozer, I’m gonna bounce outta’ here and pretend I’m working! Adios!
