Easily Irritated

Somehow I just managed to hurt my ankle walking into work.  No clue how, or what I did, but it’s kind of annoying me at the moment.  It almost feels like it needs to crack or something, ugh hopefully it goes away.  Anyway, yesterday’s training class wasn’t really that bad.  After the instructor found out I was a journalism major in college, and currently spend all day formatting documents in Word he pretty much ignored me.  He told me to just kind of sit back and relax, since I probably know how to do everything we were going to go over.  It was nice, and yes I did know everything.

Another nice thing was that the class ended at 4, which put me at the gym at 4:30 instead of 5:20ish.  Um, the difference between the gym at 4:30 and 5:30 is amazing.  It was completely empty.  Well except for the two annoying girls in the free weight area.  Wednesday’s are my cross training/lifting days, so I peddled through 33 minutes on the elliptical before heading down to the weights.  These two girls had the 20lb bar, 30lb bar, and 40lb bar as well as an assortment of dumb bells sectioned off between the two of them.  Fine whatever, if you’re actually using them, but they were standing around doing more chatting than actually lifting.  I sent some stares towards the 30lb bar hoping they would wrap up their “work out” soon.  Also the one girl was probably the size of my thigh, had her tank top folded up exposing her stomach, and happened to mention that she only started working out in late January.  Of all days for my iPod to be dead.  I had to listen to their dumb conversation the whole time I was lifting.  I made it through 3 sets of bicep curls and over head tricep extensions before they finally put the weights back.  I grabbed the 30lb bar, did my thing, and then completely bailed on abs and stretching because the same two girls were monopolizing the mats, and I couldn’t stand to listen to them for one more minute.

I made it home significantly earlier than usual, made a nice dinner of TJ’s Lobster Ravioli and spinach, and washed it all down with a few glasses of red.  I know I said I was going to switch to the vodka diet, but I just wasn’t in the mood for vodka last night (shocker I know).  Maybe a nice cocktail will make an appearance tonight.  Oh, I also had a Red Velvet cupcake from Georgetown Cupcakes because Dani came home with a box from her friend Emily once again.  Luckily it’s a smaller box and there are only 6 left now.

One week until Chicago!  The weather looks pretty good, chilly, but sunny which I can deal with.

Time to start mentally packing!  I think shoes will probably be my hardest obstacle.  I always pack too many shoes.  What do you mean four pairs of boots aren’t necessary for a long weekend?  Happy Thursday!

What I’m Loving

So apparently I’m a Gemini now?  That really makes more sense, because if this doesn’t describe me perfectly, I don’t know what does.

Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make to be moral
(in the widest sense of the word)


My mother will tell you, I will argue anything to the death, no matter how wrong I am about it, haha.  Anyway, sure glad I never got my Zodiac sign tattooed anywhere on my body.  Actually I’ll credit that to the Cancer sign being completely inappropriate, but whatevs.  Hey happy Friday!  How many of you have a three day weekend?  Sadly, I do not, but I get President’s Day off next month.

Last night I was all prepared to take the Body Works class again, but the instructor was away and they didn’t have a sub.  Lame, so I had to force myself to do weights on my own.  I did about 45 minutes of weights, trying to remember what we’d done in class last week and replicate it, and then a 15 minute cool down on the elliptical.  Some day soon I’ll actually start running again, I swear.  After the gym, I hit the Harris Teeter where I bought three bottles of red wine, and some lady products.  I already had the chocolate at home in the form of cupcakes.

Dinner was nothing spectacular, unless you consider frozen pizza spectacular, which I sometimes do, and a few glasses of wine to wash it all down with.  In honor of it being Friday, and not having much else to say today, I’m just going to end this post with some things I’m loving this week.

Cupcakes.  Specifically Georgetown Cupcake cupcakes.  This is my 4th one since Wednesday.  Please send help.

My new Starbucks coffee cup, because my other one was made for cold beverages, and my straw was starting to melt.  Thanks Adrienne!

This song.  What up Hootie.  I enjoy you much more as a country singer.

Daydreaming about warm weather and being back at Seacrets for my birthday again. (I just ate a finger full of icing).  Last but not least, that January is half way over, suck it winter.  What are you enjoying this week?
