I wish I was one of those cool people who could wax nostalgic about all those times they walked uphill both ways in the snow with no shoes to school/work. It would be a great story to tell my kids someday.
I am not one of those people -especially today.
When I woke up this morning, it was -18. AIR TEMP. That meant the wind chill was a balmy -31. There was no way in hell I was going to go wait at the bus stop hoping for a bus to pick me up before I became an AJcicle.
So I worked from home in my PJ’s for the 2nd day in a row.
I get so much done when I am home working – unless the 26lb fluffy cat is wanting his head rubbed or wants to "type" at the same time I am. Then, not so much gets done.
In other news, I am starting a Bridal Bootcamp (BB) very very soon (next week). I am one of those people that can’t be part of a gym unless I literally pass it on my way to or from work.. if it is even 1 block off the beaten path, forget it. Well, this BB is across the street from my office so I have no reason not to get my big butt over there 3 times a week for 4 weeks.
They promise a one size clothing loss in one month if I go all 12 sessions or my money back. Aaand it is only 135 bucks. That is CHEAP for Chicago.
To keep me honest, I am going to be posting 3x’s a week how I am doing- sore, bitching, happy, sad, can’t walk, can’t sit? So what. I will post. Even if I can only move my fingers enough to write a blog title. I will still post. Before I start, I am sure we will take measurements.
I am super scared of the measurements. I know they will be big, and I am afraid of the numbers.
I just have to remember that I will have smaller numbers in 4 weeks.
My new super secret public job is going well, though I am stressed to the max trying to get everything done on time. I downloaded a few meditation workouts from www.yogadownload.com this morning and hope it will help with the heart palpitations and "panic-attacky" symptoms I have been having since last week.
You see, last week I was in Atlanta at HQ learning that the (insert what I do now here) that we had planned to push off for a few months due to the economy being back just may instead be back on track to get out in April. Well, that meant that I am now 2 months behind. And 2 months behind is not good. Not good at all.
Oh, and the kicker of the whole thing? Is that they don’t know if (job I do now) is set in the new (original) date. Won’t know until next week. That would put me 3 months behind.
So I have moved forward with what I need to do on the assumption that we WILL be getting everything out in April. Though my stress level has been HORRIBLE and my salt intake – also bad.
No wonder I thought I was having a heart attack last Friday night.
I have been getting lots of whole wheat and have been eating lots of veggies, but the exercise (not even walking) has not been happening and my pants are getting a bit tight.
I went to WW early last week before my trip but didn’t make it this week (chalk it up to the FREAKING FREEZING WEATHER and the fact that I have been holed up in my apt for 2 days straight.)
No, that is an excuse. I could have gone to WW meeting if I would have thought I was going to lose some weight, but I knew I was going to gain.
Anyway, I am rambling and need to get my dinner dishes cleaned up. Will be back soon to talk all about the BB!
