I am taking the night off! No exercises tonight! I feel blah and run down so I have taken the night off. Watching NCIS season finale and then going to see if Junior was really on Deadliest Catch (recording them both) I have a feeling NCIS is going to be a real cliff hanger!!
Tomorrow is my first day of vacation so I will at least go walk the res if I am still feeling run down. The water always lifts my spirits
Today was the Monday from HE double hockey sticks!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got nothing done at work today because there were nothing but problems for my customers except thankfully the customer I went to visit today. Today I have been fighting a headache all day and just haven't felt right all day! I was supposed to go to spin class right after work but just didn't have the energy, it's tough enough getting there after work on a good day never mind when I am already drained! I have changed out of my work clothes and I am all ready to go punch a bag for a little while! It won't be as intense as 45 minutes in a spin class but it will be better than nothing at all. I didn't even get a chance to walk today :( I certainly hope tomorrow is better because I have alot to do before I don't go to work for a week and a half because I am on vacation from work...woohoo!!!!! Now if mother nature would fix this ice box it would be perfect!!!
Editors Note: lol 40 minutes leg pt and a bag work out
I decided that I needed to see what exercise I do and how I do/don't change them up...I think it's probably the later. This week will be a little easier to keep on the workout trend because I only have to go to work 2 days then I am on vacation until after Memorial Day :) hoping that will help me get over this plateau.

Today's workout started out boring and I was going to come home and ask my best sparkbuds for their suggestions on how to make things more interesting.
But then the good music from Slacker radio kicked in and I was feeling good! I was at the gym for 2 hours which is not unusual for a Sunday but I feel like I could keep going! I didn't care that I was there for 2 hours all I did was just go through my routine when it was over it was over! there were a few sets I was able to improve on too So bring on the rest of the day! I am ready! lol
I am guessing this is what that "high" people talk about feels like not that it really feels like a high (been there done that burned the t-shirt lol) but I do feel good.
Hoepfully the soreness won't kick in too bad either.
I am in such a good mood and I have no idea why this morning I was tired, and then I guess I could say I was kinda jealous, and then I was annoyed. Took a break went for a walk with a coworker which did me good but once I got back inside I was annoyed again (15 minutes wasn't long enough) apparently a certain coworker had nothing to do...I could have given her plenty to do! Well finally one of our bosses happened to walk by and at least everyone shut up so I was able to concentrate pretty much the rest of the day! I still was not in the best of moods after work, had to go to an idea session for our Duck Day team. After that went to Walmart still not in the best of moods but at least I wasn't annoyed anymore I wanted hot dogs for dinner and I wanted the hubby to start a fire in our pit outside so we could have smores but he wouldn't do because he had to clean it out...so I was still not in a good mood. Had dinner, watched them put the top on 1 World Trade center that was way cool!!!! (now I am wondering how those cranes will come down off the building or do they?) Realized I gave my hubby the turkey hot dogs so that meant I ate the fattening ones ARGH!!!!! Watched the end of the Nationwide race that was disappointing (I hate the shrub) Did my leg pt and did some arm exercises. Sat down at the computer to enter in the points from dinner to my weight watchers tracker...hot dogs! YIKES!!!!!! Came on over to SparkPeople and realized I am in a GREAT mood!!! Where the hell did that come from?!?!?! Not that I am complaining! Just don't know where it came from and hope it doesn't go away any time soon
