So, got up to go to work and the man & I decided to sleep longer 🙂 Yay. I fell back asleep for like 1 1/2 hours, and had some crazy vivid dreams. When I finally dragged my arse out of bed I made coffee and heated my oatmeal. I mixed in more cottage cheese but forgot my almonds. All in all, a yummy start to the day. While I made this I was on the phone with DirecTV per the promo letter I received–they’re giving us $10/mo off for 12 mos, and free Showtime and Starz for 6 months. Sign me up!
I worked from home for a few hours (aka blogged and sorta checked my email and news), but the company website and applications were on the fritz today so I got frustrated and mostly blogged. After I packed lunch I went to the office, and ended up eating around 1:40. Typical wrap for lunch (low fat tortilla, 1/2 wedge LCL, turkey, spinach, and broc slaw), a little bit of cottage cheese (all that was left!), and half an apple. That hit the spot 🙂
I worked for a bit, chatted with my office mate, and just now realized I forgot to contact a client about something. Shoot. Anyway, I ate the other half of my apple around 3:45, mostly because I knew I should have something to support my brain power for my 4pm meeting. Forgot to take a pic, tho.
[imagine apple here :)]
My meeting went well, and I headed on home starting to get hungry. Thankfully traffic was not bad at all, otherwise I would have been frustrated by that fo sho. Lily was so cute when I got home…her little wiggly greeting will never get old 😀
I cooked up chicken breast and green beans for dinner, hoping it would be light enough that I could work out sooner than later. I probably should have had more calories for dinner; not until later did I realize this was fewer than I was going for.
Chris and I watched Showtime for a little while, and I headed off to the gym. Here’s where “the humanity” got to me… A nice guy opened the front door for me, and all began well. The gym was packed. I started with a quick warm up on the treadmill, then began to bust out legs superset style. Here I was annoyed by two girls chatting it up while one of them *barely* worked out on a leg curl machine. I wasn’t using that machine, but ones on either side of it. They were there for like 10 minutes doing nothing and totally oblivious. Grrr. C’mon, if you’re gonna be at the gym can ya please work out and not just take up space?
My supersetting didn’t go so well since it was so busy, but that didn’t upset me. Next frustration was a meathead doing tricep rope extensions–I didn’t know he was using that particular stack (no water bottle/towel/keys/etc.), but during my first set I noticed he was standing rightnexttome. When I finished he said “I was using that” and practically pushed me out of the way to get on it. Fucker. There were only 3 other open stacks at the time. So I took an open one. I was glad to head downstairs for cardio after that.
The cardio machines were TOTALLY FULL. I didn’t want to go upstairs to use the non-TV machines, so I just waited for a minute. First I was going to use a stair mill, but the chick getting off of it took about 5 minutes to stretch on the damn thing instead of moving on. Her crime: being totally oblivious to the fact that people were waiting to use the machines.
So, I took an elliptical that opened up and started cruising. Phew. TV worked, closed captioning was on(not sure how you turn it on but I prefer it since I listen to music on the iPod at the same time). Next, I see two cheerleaders (t-shirts had high school cheer squad on them) do some “cardio:” they fucked around on two machines in front of me for about 5 minutes, one of them putting both of her feet on one footpad and pumping with her arms like a kid. The other one looked like she was made up to go to prom–not exactly indicative of someone who is trying to work out. Their crime: not being serious about what they were doing.
Next, fat man with no t-shirt pacing around on his phone in front of the cardio area. Ewwwwwwwwwwww. He had some nasty body hair, too. It was one of those things where you try not to look but somehow still do every once in awhile. I think most of the people on the machines were trying to keep their dinner down.
Lastly, young asshole spits in the recycling bin. Grrrrrrrrrr. Is it that hard to read “recycling” in big letters on the side?
By this time I got to my 45 minute goal and got the hay out of there. At least the cardio was good 🙂
I stopped at Freddy’s on the way home, only to be annoyed by sick kids coughing and sniffling and not doing anything to keep their germs to themselves, and young assholes who tried to cut in front of me at the self-scan. But I saw they now carry Flat Out! wraps!!! I’ll have to try those when I run out of tortillas.
At least I got my cottage cheese, and a d’anjou pear :), and got home safely. I swear, it is evenings like these that make me want to give up on human kind. I guess I believe in karma, and just figure if they’re putting out negative energy they’re going to get some back. Hopefully my annoyed ass wasn’t putting out a bad vibe…
After I cleaned up I had a snack of 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese, and some Food Should Taste Good chips. My little bowl runneth over! Yummy and satisfying.
My eBay auctions all ended tonight, and I sold 13 of 16 items! Yay!
So I leave you my trusty bloggers. Sorry I wasn’t in a great mood when writing this tonight, but thanks for reading anyway 🙂 Hopefully some of you will share your experiences or feedback with me, I would appreciate it a lot.
