One Hot Hump Day!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

It's 3:36 PM and it's 102 outside (according the temp gadget on my computer screen). That is HOT. One of the good things about working OT and getting to work at 6 AM is I have my pick of parking spots. And I just happened to find one that will be in the shade of smallish tree when I got off. It's not much, but it does help to keep the inside cooler. emoticon

We are going to be under an excessive heat warning for the next 4-5 days. Since Jason will be here for part of this, I think we'll probably stay inside (in the A/C) a lot. Bonding time with my baby boy! emoticon

This is from the NWS:
"...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM PDT /11 AM
MST/ FRIDAY TO 8 PM PDT /8 PM MST/ MONDAY...

Eating last night was not too bad. I was a tad over, which seems to be a trend this week. I need to nip that shtako right here and now! It only seems at night. I don't know...could it be the OT I'm working? Longer hours at work makes me hungry? If so, I need to add a workout at home! And speaking of working out...I'll have to try and get them in sometime next week. I'll be off work for the week and I always seem to have trouble getting a workout in when I'm not at work. emoticon

I did get 61 mins in at lunch today. And on the elliptical. This is suppose be the week for the elliptical, but Mon and Tue I had to use the treadmill. I got lucky today!

I'm thinking tacos for dinner tonight. I have all the fixings for them. emoticon

OK...that will be it for me...Have a great Hump Day everyone!

  Sheesh! You go girl, 61 minutes on the elliptical and I'd be sobbing in the corner hysterically screaming for an ambulance.

I hear ya on the hungry, this week has been killer. Last night I dreamed of driving from fast food joint to fast food joint ordering and eating...Good luck kicking the extra noms!

    I think there must be something going around because the last two nights when he's come home from work Arn has said he just can't believe how hungry he is. I think it's the heat. The heat makes you tired. Your body reads that as needs energy (usually carbs). And there you go! You're eating twice as much as dinner. His office is HORRIBLY hot even with air conditioning. That's my idea of it anyway... Hugs, Calen~
