Iím just so phoning it in today. Iíve had a very busy week, stressful on all fronts, and I just canít bring myself to concentrate or do any work. Probably not something I should be writing on a work computer, eh? Brain fog has taken over.
I weighed myself this morning to find that Iíve gained 5 pounds since starting my job. This is not good news, but it gave me the extra kick in the butt to find out why I still havenít been granted access to the fitness room here in the building.
Turns out, the building doesnít have me listed as an employee. So I spent the morning dealing with the CompanyIWorkFor and getting the necessary paperwork filed. Tuesday, Iíve been told, Iíll be able to use that room. Just when Iím going to use it still puzzles me, but Iíll figure it out. Like, perhaps a couple of days a week Iíll shell out the $10 to have my dog brought home from daycare so I can work out when the working day is though.
See, I work until 4:30. I imagine I wouldnít get to the gym and change until 5:15. If I take 45 minutes, that has me leaving work at 6. (Assuming I donít shower?!) I have to pick up the puppy by 7. Thatís cutting it too close - with no traffic at all, I can make it in 45 minutes. There is rarely no traffic. But OK. I can justify the expense if I think of it as spending $20-30 a week to belong to a gym. Thatís a good price, isnít it? (Please donít contradict me. I couldnít handle it!)
But you know, since I donít have a workout schedule I havenít been working out at all. Ever. Except for the dog walks and a few 10-minute videos here and there, no exercise has touched this body. That and my incredibly lax eating is how that 5 pounds happened.
All or nothing thinking Ė Iím so very guilty of this. So Iím going to do two workouts this weekend. At least. Iím exhausted from the week and I donít know if I can get on that step tonight. It really has been a very, very busy week. Crazy busy. Not terrible busy, but ďno time to breatheĒ busy.
Yesterday started out as a great food day, that ended with a small bag of chocolate-covered pretzels and pizza. A combo that got me so sick that I ÖuhÖ got sick. It is no surprise today that Iíve been SO very regimented and have NO interest in the Friday treats littering the office today.
So much more to say, too lazy to type it. So Iíll leave my Punim the Wonder Puppy story for the weekend. Suffice it to say, heís almost two, and heís trying to assert his manliness.
