It is raining/snowing today. Winter is taking one last kick at us. I’d like to use that as an excuse for wasting my weekend. But it’s just that, an excuse.
Friday night I went out after work, I saved my waistline a little and decided not to drink, my wallet appreciated my decision as well. I had a great time. Lots of laughs, some dancing, a little flirting… yeah, I got, long awkward eye contact and suggestive nods from a couple reasonably attractive 20 somethings. And then left with the bunch of girls I was with to go to Denny’s. They made a huge drunken scene, yelling, spilling water, crawling on the floor (gross) But I was wildly entertained. By the time I chauffeured everyone home it was 5am. Good times… My abs hurt, a little from the barre workout, and a little from the laughing, I’m sure of it.
Saturday I was toying with the idea of going out in Kelowna, so a nap was in order. I have a queen size inflatable bed, it fits perfectly in my living room, and is a pretty sweet set up. That’s what I did, I inflated my living room bed and watched movies, Twilight (insert sad single girl comment here) And She’s the man, just for Channing Tatum, twice (more sad single girl comments here). I left the house for about an hour to meet my friend C, who had come for a drive and visit, and then went home to my living room bed. I napped, watched movies, drank tea and then decided not to go out. Wasted my whole day, no exercise…didn’t shower, or clean my house…nothing. Oh wait, I did put on a mud face mask. Big day.
Sunday I was going to try a zumba class, but with the time change I slept in! I NEVER sleep in. I watched Indiana Jones and it was looking like another day sucked into my living room bed, but I gathered the strength to pull the stopper,got dressed, and went for a walk. I was a beautiful day, I was wearing a scarf and toque with my sunglasses. I figured to make up for a days missed exercise I’d go for an extra long walk. I try to walk briskly for an hour, at least every other day, usually turns out to be around 5k.
(An aside… I’m in a Starbucks blogging and I realize thechairs in here match my kitchen chairs at home, I rescued 3 from a dumpster a few months ago, I wonder if they were stolen? Now I know where to go if I need a fourth…)
I started my walk with my recently randomly filled nano, 955 song and a complete surprise, I forget about some of the great music I have! (I have an impressive music collection, 1300+ CD’s and over 2600 songs in my iTunes account, I may or may not have had/have an obsession…better than spending my money on drugs right?)
I realized I missed my month milestone measurements and pictures last week. That will be a good motivator, I feel like I’m starting to fizzle. I need some whip cracking, and renewed vigor. Even tonight, I should have biked for 30 min, but instead I went for a drive and came down to starbucks to blog. It’s funny I’m here plugged into m awesome iPod, typing, but it feels good to be around people. Passively around people. My job leaves me pretty lonely most of the day. And living alone on top of it, I should join a gym? That might help my motivation too…
This might do something for my motivation…
