Days 44-52...Did I Fall Off the Planet or What?!?

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

No...I definitely assure you - I did NOT fall off the face of the planet! But, boy, where did the time go? I would have sworn that it was just barely days ago that I last blogged. LOL You know what they say...time flies when you're having fun, right? So have I been having FUN??? I don't know if you can call it *that*....but I've been keeping busy anyways. :-)

So what have I been up to? I have been busting out every single planned workout! I won Week 2, tied it with my sister but we both get a bonus point (! YAY !) of our real life challenge! I've been getting in some lunch workouts! I've finished a book! I vegged out ridiculously this weekend! I busted out some house cleaning, baking, AND even took a well deserved bubble bath!

So yeah, I think you can see that life has been treating me not too shabbily lately. I have no real complaints. My eating hasn't been stellar, but I'm working on making that a focus again...the weekend baking stint definitely did not help. But they will all be gone again before I know it.

I had my first summer Friday off last week and it was mahvelous! Friday is when I got the majority of that house cleaning done and this Friday I'm hoping to hit the beach. My plan is to at least try to alternate between getting stuff done and having fun on those Fridays.

Well, I guess there is some bad news in my life - we were told yesterday that we will be taking furlough days soon. Yippee - 4.6% pay cut in my future!!! :-| Eh...I'm just happy to have a job and a good one at that for the most part. The good out of that is 2 1/2 weeks off at Christmas! Holy schmoly...I'm not going to know what to do with myself with 2.5 weeks off of work!!!! I can pretty much guarantee the ol' house will be spotless. hahahaha

Alright, this blog has pretty much been a stream of consciousness babblefest! LOL

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! And if you aren't - you still have time to turn it around!!

    I am sad about your Furlough days. I hope it turns out that it is a temporary situation. Yipee for what is otherwise a great life.

    Furlough days suck! But congrats on all the awesome work you're doing.

    Sounds like you've kept yourself busy the past few days. Congrats on the cleaning... if you'd like to stop by my house.

    Sorry to hear about the furlough but at least they gave you a lot of advance notice, and that will be a great time to spend with friends and family around the holiday!

    Keep up the awesome work with the real life challenge! Rock On!

    Even with having every Monday off for the past 2.5 years and I have still yet to have a whole day to do absolutely nothing and enjoy myself! There is always some appointment, errand or training run to get in. Jeez.

    Keep up the good work with your workouts and the challenge!
