Did you ever get that feeling?

You know, the one where something just isn't right?

I had that one this morning and was having a really hard time shaking it off.  So I started thinking about my day.  Slept an hour later than usual because I decided to skip the gym today.  Went downstairs to make breakfast only to find that our pooch (who is getting up there in years) released the pee monster on the floor.  Ugh.  Went about my mopping and threw her blankie in the washer.

Went upstairs and stared into the closet.  Lots of clothes, nothing to wear.  I know, I know.  Finally figured it out and was only a couple minutes "late" for work.  Still feeling some hidden blah so I called MommaShyner (she's all good) and BruddaShyner (he's all good too).  Kiddo's safe at school.  Lovey's at work.  All is more or less right in my universe.

My horoscope for today said:

With your credit cards maxed out you may be thinking that your bank account is not as healthy as it could be. But today you are likely to receive some news that indicates otherwise. You may get a windfall of some kind, or discover that your stock portfolio is generating healthy returns. It's a good day for paperwork. Enjoy this great day!

Well, fortunately, my cards aren't maxed out, but I can certainly feel the part about the bank account.  She's not overdrawn by any means, she would just like some friends in there.  I wonder if I won some lottery money last night.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm all thrown off because I didn't go to the gym this morning and I had no plans of going this evening.  Withdrawl!!  I may be turning into some sort of gym rat.  I found a Krav Maga class (thanks for mentioning that a while back, LeendaDLL) and I am going for the first time next week.  That puts me at the gym every weekday.  At least the membership won't be going to waste.

I've been trying to eat a little better, so this week, my meals have gone a little something like this:

  • Breakfast – Egg Beaters with a slice of 2% American (mmmm, processed cheese)
  • Snack 1 – Cottage cheese with fruit
  • Lunch – Spinach salad with peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers, grated parm and light balsamic viniagrette
  • Snack 2 – Yogurt
  • Dinner – Either orange roughy or salmon with a smidge of a veggie
  • Sometimes a snack 3 – Spoon of peanut butter

A day or two ago, I started craving red meat.  Odd because I don't usually eat it – it makes my tummy hurt.  Today I decided that I HAD to have it or I might start gnawing on my arm.  Oh McDonalds.  So convenient.  So greasy.  So delicious.  Or at least I think you were delicious because I am quite certain that I didn't even chew that double cheeseburger.  I did, however, chew my salad.  I think I can be red meat free once again for another couple months.

That's pretty much all I've got for today.  Sometimes I just need to get stuff out of my head, you know?  I'm off for now.  Gotta go get the girls their 2 month checkup.  Hope all is well with all of you.

Wednesdays are for humping

Why not?  Virginia is for lovers.  Can you imagine the ruckus on Wednesdays in Virginia?

I haven't much to say about this week.  I started my gym regimen on Monday and that was good.  An abs and ass class that has left me sore two days later.  Bonus that there was only one other person in the class other than the instructor.  Tuesday evening was yoga.  It's an intro class that goes into the names of poses, some background, and some actual poses.  It's kind of slow moving, but it's okay since I'm still learning some stuff.

As if that weren't enough, this morning I had another yoga class (different place) where I was the only student.  Completely awesome as I got personalized instruction on getting my poses just right.  I think we did some more advanced poses.  And I really need to work on my balance.  Even though the instructor was "assisting" me at points, I still almost knocked her over when I was doing Utthita Hasta Padangustasana.  I'm no yoga expert, but I would imagine that this isn't something that you ask someone to do who has been to yoga a few times.  At any rate, it was an excellent class and the same teacher runs the Friday Pilates class so I'm happy about that.

Tomorrow morning I have my first of two personal training sessions.  I need a set circuit routine for the days I hit the gym and am not taking a class.  I'm making it easy for the guy.

I'll be ending the week with the aforementioned Pilates class and I may take off Saturday and Sunday, but that remains to be seen.

SIGH.  Could someone please tell me how I could justify shelling out more cash to obtain certification in personal training?  I'm already in a Bachelor's program and it isn't as though I don't plan on finishing it, I just enjoy the exercise and making people sweat a little more than I do the computer.  People are always wanting to get in shape, right?  I guess that goes on the back burner for now.

I've said a lot for someone with nothing to say.  I hope that this week either starts to or continues to treat you all right.  have a good one!
