Well, here we are on Tuesday morning and it’s time to get back to reality, but first let’s wrap up 1 and 2 before we start 3 and look ahead to 4-31.
New Year’s Day
A fantastic day! No hangovers because we didn’t drink ourselves into oblivion the night before. Up early to finish up brunch preparations. Boy, did we eat. Grits fritters with ham and cheese, bacon cheddar deviled eggs, Mexican potato omelet, mimosas, Bloody Marys. Yum-tastic. We had company over and watched football and just had a lovely time. Probably should do that more often. If nothing else, it would help keep the house clean. Why, you ask? Well, because I get a little OCD when I know someone is coming over so I go on a cleaning rampage. It isn’t as though our house is so dirty – mainly dusty, but I get nuts. But…my house is clean. I like that very much.
So much of this day was spent going back and forth on whether or not to go to the football game on Sunday. I’m pretty spoiled and now that I’ve sat in club seats, I don’t really want to sit with the masses. I also don’t want to drop $600 on a ticket. I’m leaning towards watching it from home in my nice warm house (it’s going to be cold) and my nice clean bathroom where there’s never a wait. Even if Hubby’s in there because we have two more, lol. Also, I just found out that the Steelers are coming here for regular season next year. That’s leaning heavily on my decision. Additionally, Hubby keeps giving me all of these ideas of what else I might do with my Christmas money. Like, perhaps, buy my gun. I’m thinking that the gun might be the better option. I’ll have it forever and it gives us the chance to go to the range together. Have I mentioned that I absolutely LOVE shooting that handgun?!?! Ooooh, mmmmm, BANG! Love it.
Yesterday in our out and abouts, we got some nice resistance bands that came with a DVD with some exercises. I did one of the videos this morning. It wasn’t awful. The handles will hold up to three resistance bands, but this morning I only used one. It’s a 30 pound band, but I think I’m going to need to put another on. The plan here is to alternate the resistance band and ab workout with stretching. Fortunately, the resistance band workout only takes about 15 minutes. Seems awfully short, but it’s pretty interesting and a new concept for me. Bursts. 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off for 10 minutes. It makes you say uggghhhhn. (Na na na na!)
January has lots of stuff in it. Steelers in town on the 8th, but not before I get to try out aerial yoga that morning. Either Hubby’s holiday party for work or the Heat game on the 13th. Class creation deadline on the 15th. Brewfest on the 27th. Showcase at the studio on the 28th. Madness! It’s going to be a busy month but I’ll survive. I’ll come out even stronger. My routine is going to be awesome! (Probably. Hopefully. No, it will be.) I’m going the distance. I’m going for speed.
Well, that’s all I’ve got today. It’s about time to giddyup. Let’s get it!
