HMT: Day 56… I am a creeper.

Day: 56

Distance: 4 miles

Time: 66 minutes (I walked/jogged just wasn’t feeling a straight up 4 just wanted to be on the treadmill for awhile so I did intervals)

Temperature: On the treadmill at my new gym:)

Injuries: None!

So as I mentioned in my post yesterday given some new motivation I joined a gym WITH fitness classes so I am super excited about this.  Today I wanted to head over and check it out, none of the classes met at the time I could go so I just got some cardio in but I really think I’m going to like it there!

I started out creeping on the treadmill, the nice man next to me was watching me so I couldn’t get a good picture of the whole thing.

I then did some intense creeping on the facility… this woman and her personal trainer were a little caught off guard. I should get a t-shirt that says “I have a blog, don’t mind the photos”

After the facility creep, I did some locker room creeping… post shower ready to go and feeling like a rockstar if I must be so bold;)

Finally, I creeped on my Starbucks treat post work out.

Now I am off to go meet a friend who is brand new to this little corner of the world called Vermont  for dinner and our first shows of the Jazz Fest!   Hopefully she doesn’t mind my photo taking…

“That” Day

Today was “that” day where the whole world was out to get me and I was just not havin’ it.   Here are a few of my sarcasm sprinkled tales of the last 24-hours that I think could have created such a day in the first place.

1.  I work the front desk of a couple hotels, sometimes that means I am by myself and must do whatever I can to rectify a situation solo.  For example: last night a guest called me to ask if I could come up to his room and plunge his toilet because he had a weak stomach and couldn’t do it himself.   Here is what I actually said to him “certainly sir please give me 15 minutes to get up there.”

But what I wanted to say was “HELL NO! I DIDN’T CLOG IT!”

I assure you it was a nightmare that I hope I never relive.

2.  I did not leave work until after midnight and after my 30 minute commute home I then had only a few hours to get some sleep before going back in to work this morning at 8.  I have pulled many turn around shifts in my day but this one was especially hard because I could not sleep.  Boo thinking about life!

I counted to at least 600 and was still unable to sleep… no bueno friends, no bueno.

3.  I returned a dress to TJ MAXX today, obviously meant that I had to search the racks for a new one… ended up trying on at least ten dresses and felt like a walrus.  I don’t know if it was the lack of sleep or the fact that I have a closet full of dresses I wore at my “fighting weight” that I can’t currently wear without reaching walrus in a dress status.

Nobody wants to feel like a walrus in a dress… it is just plain awkward.

I know how cute this looks but trust me, it does not feel cute at all.

So now that you know what went wrong today now I can tell you what I did to solve those 3 problems.

1.  There is no solution to plunging another person’s toilet… I just made a big joke about it at work and got a bunch of laughs.

2.  Exhaustion + Starbucks/Techno Music = Feeling like a normal person again.

(I’ve actually never had anyone spell my name correctly… the first person that does is getting a ballin’ tip)

3. I went straight home after the dressing room debacle, threw on my running clothes, put Day 3 of Insanity in the DVD player and I let that man practically kill me again… but in a good way.  THEN when I finished I went for a 3 mile walk just because.

What is that you see? A smile? Woot! Woot!

Anyway I hope all of you had great days and not “that” day like me… or if you did I hope you turn it around:)
