Man, I missed a blog day!

Thursday, April 16, 2009

That's okay... I was totally bummed out by the weather yesterday and missed a lot of things. Didn't work out because it was 47 degrees and raining (but did do my strength training!) Positive self talk, right??

I took a nap, that was nice... woke up on the couch in the bf's office. He had let me sleep. He got off work early and we had a nice dinner together... I left food on my plate! No urge to "clean the plate" as I was taught as a kid!

I DID, however, have a chocolate covered pretzel... but just one! I then rested my eyes a bit after strength training while bf worked on the car, even gave him a little help with it... I can turn a wrench... with a little supervision and instruction! :)

No excuses today... its supposed to be in the 60s and sunny. We are walking after work, period. Nuff said.

Have a great day!


Maybe enough sleep...

I slept better than normal last night... still up and down like always, but more down time than up time. Always a good thing.

I walked 4.5 miles yesterday with a girl friend. She's doing the "walk 100 miles in 100 days" challenge at the hospital she works for, so she and I walked yesterday and plan to walk tomorrow. Honestly, I can say I enjoy walking much more than running, but I know I need to keep running.

I have a pretty mellow day planned... of course that is ALWAYS subject to change. It is never a dull moment with the boyfriend!

play safe and dodge those raindrops today!


Party weekend... now back to it!

Monday, April 13, 2009

I actually ATE really well, this weekend... but I perhaps DRANK a few too many calories! :)

We went to Pittsburgh for some errands... it's all good. We stop at a friend's restaurant to have some lunch and talk. Turns out there was a bachelorette party happening while we were there and ended up partying with them! I met some really great girls and it sounds like we'll be going again to Pittsburgh next month so I can have girl's night out with them. They do it once a month.

Not trying to sound pathetic, but I don't have a lot of girl friends. Most of my friends are guys, mostly because of the industries I work in are rather male dominated. After getting separated and divorced, I am reminded how important girl friends are. While I enjoy hanging out with the guys, working on cars, watching football, etc. girl time is soooo important.

The best part is the new guy understands girl time and encourages it... completely different than what I used to have to deal with... but that is history! :)

I start the beginning of my roadtrip this afternoon with a short drive (about an hour or so) to the BF's house, then tomorrow morning we're leaving for Pittsburgh for the day. I am going to try to get up early to run or walk before we leave, but sometimes its just so tempting to be lazy!

We're going to eat at our friend, Geno's restaurant while we're there. I may have to endulge a little!

I'm looking forward to an entire day off! Working 80+ hours a week, a whole day is just unheard of!

Have a great weekend!

7 minutes and 51 seconds of exercise... :(

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Well, not really... let me explain.

I ran at lunch and decided I didn't want to drive to the pool, so I decided to stay home and do yoga since I am still a little sore from strength training.

7:51 into my yoga routine and the tones drop for a 3 year old little girl seizing. Of course I go. I am just getting back (its 11:30PM). It was a long trip to the hospital, being so rural, but I think she's going to be okay.

I don't think I'll need the melatonin tonight, but I'm taking it anyway to be sure I don't wake up until the alarm in the morning.

Sweet dreams!

    You're a hero EMT. Thanks for doing what you do! My wife is an ER nurse for a children's hospital and raves about the EMTs and Paramedics and the great work that they do.

Thanks! and sleep tight!
