Captain's log, stardate 2/15...
The BF found a job, hooray! After almost two months of searching he's found employment as one of the most annoying people in the world. *lol* You know what I mean, those perky-as-hell folk that try to sell you something when you walk into a store. *snicker* As long as there are cougars out there interested in switching to DirectTV, he'll be fine. My BF is a seriously good lookin' dude, and the older ladies can't get enough of him. *lol*
Anyway... this is his second day and... oh my gawds, it's quiet as a tomb around here. Yesterday I about went up the walls because of how quiet it was. I'm so used to him being here that when he's not it feels far too empty. Wasn't I just enjoying this emptiness three months ago? *loL* Anyway, I spent yesterday doing laudnry, cleaning the apartment, and cooking. Me, cooking. And it was actually GOOD. *lol* Go fig. Today, I slept in. Today, I blew the dust off my go-to workout DVD (Hello, Carmen, how've you been!) and... wow. I used to be able to get through this DVD with no problems, but now I'm shaking like mad and had to stop several times to catch my breath.
I'm trying hard not to be harsh on myself. I've been sitting on my ass most of the winter, I can't let it get to me that I can't keep up just yet. I did it before, I can do it again. Just keep swimming until the snow melts and we can strap on sneaks and go run. Well, attempt to run for me. *lol*
I let Emily know when I was free in case she gets squirrly and wants to attempt walkies in the next week. We've finally hit the mid-winter thaw (40 degrees! HEAT WAVE!) and as long as I'm back in time to fix dinner (The first one home is on dinner duty!) we can go hit the riverwalk.
Someone remind me to go dig out my bike. It's... buried at the moment. I hate to think of the rust that's going to need removing. :P Really should have got a tarp. Grr.
I've been wearing my SparkTracker doohickey almost every day. When I wear it to work, I easily reach my step goal. Im a manager in a retail setting, and I'm constantly walking. I wore the tracker out of curiosity of how many miles I walk during my shift. Almost made 10,000 steps one night. *lol* I have a sale-set tonight, so I wouldn't be surprised if I did it again.
You know what irks me about work, though? Not the work itself (that's a whole 'nother story), but the fact that the majority of my coworkers have LOST weight while working there. They didn't change their diet, they didn't do anything outside work, but they lost weight. For me to lose weight I have to add working out before AND after work AND limiting my food to bird crumbs. *lol*
Speaking of food, I need to go fix some kind of lunch option before work. AND fix some kind of dinner option to take to work. Toodles.
