Um, Hi!

So – here it is Friday. And there was NO CONTENT yesterday. Sorry. I know that many of you cried yourselves to sleep.  

This week has been intense! 

And changes are underway in the Gazelle work schedule. After previously thinking that it wouldn’t be happening, it turns out that starting on Monday, I will be going full-time for 5 weeks. Which means I have to work ON Mondays. And for FIVE WHOLE DAYS IN A ROW! Except, you know, next Monday – because it is a holiday. But, still!

And then, on February 20, the day this current round of insanity comes to an end, I am planning on canoodling with a martini. Possibly several martinis. I am a whore that way.

I have the entire last week of February off. I am planning on eating bon bons and watching soap operas. Or not. I might just sleep late (’til nine, maybe!) and workout a lot. Oh yeah, and turn 32. Although I may nix that last bit.

Starting March 2, I will be working Mondays-Thursdays. It does make sense, really, for me to work on Mondays & not Fridays. Except that I hate Mondays with a fiery passion, and love Fridays, so this is going to be a hard adjustment. 

As for other stuff – I have, with the exception of today, worked out every day this week, stress or no stress. 

Monday – elliptical
Tuesday – gym for treadmill & upper body weights
Wednesday – home stuff: squats, crunches, push-ups, one-legged squats
Thursday – gym for bike & lower body weights
Friday – a planned walk with the architect after work before dinner
Saturday – a shortish, very easy run around my neighborhood – 3 or 4 miles
Sunday – a longer run with Junk Miles 

I’m not sure what I’m going to do when I have to work 5 days a week – it’s going to change my workout schedule. Since I only have one more allowed day off in January, I think I will take it 1/26, so I don’t have to worry about a Monday pre-work workout.

Starting in February, I may just take Mondays as my rest days & not worry about getting a workout in (although I’m certainly WELCOME to work out, if the mood hits me).

Thoughts? Suggestions? Condolences for having to work a 5-day weekday? No? Well, fine then!

I did get to do a fun thing this week – I had knitting night with my girlfriends. We even did some knitting! Woo! And we ate cheese & drank wine & watched the New Kids from November’s American Music Awards (what? Are you saying you didn’t TiVo it? Liar!). A good time was had by all – and it was the perfect mid-week destressor.

Next week is likely to be fairly intense. I will still give you content (and definitely shoes), but there may not be timely updates – as I may have to write almost everything in advance. If I’m still alive & sane next Saturday, I’ll let you know how it went.

PS – scroll down to Tuesday’s entry if you haven’t yet entered the contest to win the performance grips. I’m telling you – they are pretty damn awesome!
