Please forgive any mispellings...I blame the migrain medication. It really hasn't been all that exciting since I got back from vacation and I'm perfectly okay with that. I was somewhere new every four to seven days while on vacation so doing as little as possible has its good side. My first week back began with a bang! I had a PT test that Monday morning and, as a failure result, I ended up back in the 6am Fit Camp.
Honestly, I'm not surprised. I hadn't worked out hard from the days following my surgery until, well, the Tuesday after my test failure. I couldn't do anything for a month; then I could do everything but it hurt so I didn't do a lot. Then I was on vacation so, although I ran every few days, I still didn't do much. So, now, I'm at the gym every morning Monday thru Friday; Biggest Loser Tuesdays; and some random days during the rest of the week. A lady at work is going to help me get started on a good strength training routine. I lift in the morning sessions but, let me tell you, 10lb weights are not going to get me stronger. I WANT big muscles. Give me muscley thighs any day. Let me have a hard time putting my pants on 'cause of strong muscles. Bigger muscles burn more calories. Buring calories help whittle the waist. It's a win-win situation.
As for work, I came back and jumped right into a Process Improvement Event that first week of October. It went really well. I worked a couple days at the part-time as well. Last week, I had to teach a class. Despite technical difficulties--Wilmington University had swapped out the instructors laptop with a new one and had neglected to tell us the password AND, of course, we had to reinstall the PowerPoint presentation that is our lecture. It was slow start but it went very well. This past weekend, I worked six hours each day at the part-time. I working on Halloween as well but I don't mind. Shoot! I put in the availability of every Friday evening and the main portions of both Saturday and Sunday. Every dollar in is a dollar more that I can apply to my budget somewhere.
I signed up for Cardio Kickboxing classes, not last Thursday, but the Thursday before then and have yet to go. Too many excuses. I'll make it one of these days. Tomorrow I'm taking my Little Brother to the Big Bro/Big Sis skating party at the roller rink. It'll be fun AND a workout.
I reached a milestone last Tuesday. $28000 in debt paid off! Talk about exciting!
You guys take care. My migraine meds are really kicking in.
