fourth with the fam & my continuing saga
Thursday, July 05, 2012
I'm in Houston for the fourth with my family. It's been a great trip. We blew up a bunch of fireworks yesterday and went to the Johnson Space Center today. It's been interesting to be around the small children (a just-turned-8 and a 12-weeks-old). I've been working a lot on a research paper, which has not been enjoyable, but I work on it sitting at the kitchen table while the others are being all artsy. Coolness.
I have not done my cardio properly lately. Today is Thursday, so let's recap, shall we?
Last Thursday (scared day) - got the infamous HR call. Could not eat. It was a "rest" day so I rested.
Last Friday (sad day) - the infamous HR meeting. Spent day crying (in Office Depot, no less!). Couldn't eat, and forgot to work out. Didn't care.
Last Saturday (mad day) - Spent day angry. Didn't eat much. Didn't care to work out. Would plant a foot in anyone who suggested otherwise. Drinks with a friend. Assume all the alcohol was burned off by the anger.
Last Sunday - went all zen. Still didn't eat or work out, and didn't care. About anything.
Monday - Did work out. Felt a little like a slug coming back from the dead.
Tuesday - Meant to work out. Really did. But it was a very busy day, getting ready for the Houston trip, followed by driving to Houston.
Wednesday - Did not work out. Knew I wasn't going to. But we played outside a lot in the 100 degree heat, so I must've burned something off, right? Har har har... burned something off...
Thursday - Did not work out. Knew I wasn't going to. But we went to NASA and walked all over the dang place.
