Not Even Trying

If you live in this area, you know that rain + early holiday travel = not good things for traffic.  Last night at 5 pm when I was trying to leave work, I pulled up the traffic.com app on my phone (a must have I think) and noticed that every road on my dashboard had traffic at an 8 and building.  Delays ranged from 18-25 minutes for a 4 mile stretch, and I realized it would take me well over two hours to get home.  Instead of wasting gas and getting annoyed, I made the executive decision to park my ass at the Dogfish Head Alehouse bar and wait it out.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’ve expressed concern about eating alone in restaurants before.  They stem mostly from the fact that I don’t like people, and don’t really want to have to make conversation with strangers.  I don’t care enough.  Last night I talked to strangers and lived to tell about it, haha, I even got a free beer.  It wasn’t so bad, and I ended up sitting there until just before 8 when traffic finally let up enough to drive home.  I hope traffic tonight isn’t nearly as bad, but once again, it’s raining.

Prior to treating myself to a spontaneous dinner out I managed to squeeze in a lunch time work-out.  45 minutes on the elliptical followed by abs and stretching.  My hair, desperately needs washing today.  The whole blow drying the sweat out of it only works for so long.  Today I’m supposed to participate in a Cross Fit work-out with two other co-workers, so we’ll see how that goes.

I’m really hoping to get out of the office by 2 tomorrow so that I can start my journey up to Philadelphia for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I have mini pumpkin cheesecakes to bake and birthday drinks to have with my sister.  Judging by the state of the parking garage this morning, I’m thinking most people have already started to take off, so hopefully we get out early.

Try not to think of today as a Tuesday, technically it’s Thursday! Have a good one!




Everything is Annoying

I had to drive through not one, but three accidents this morning on my way to work.  That’s six idiots who couldn’t manage to get their shit together enough to not fucking drive into someone else.  And also, also, when you have a mother effing fender bender, for the love of god do not just sit there in the middle of the road! MOVE TO THE SHOULDER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, end rant, I feel slightly better.

So it’s Wednesday already, which is pretty cool, except I seem to be currently going through puberty and have a massive zit growing on my head.  Wtf?  I’m trying very hard not to mess with it, it’s difficult though.  Uuh, anyway I’m about ready to drop kick my computer because for some reason the IP address it’s sending to the interwebs is getting recognized as coming from overseas, so I can’t do fun things like stream video on Hulu.  Any ideas on how I can fix this?  There’s a lot of downtime here and I have a lot of TV shows to catch up on.

Despite my hangover from the long weekend, I managed to drag myself across the street to the gym during lunch yesterday.  Triceps and chest workout and 33 minutes on the elliptical.  They started classes yesterday, and I think I may have to check a few out.  Yesterday was some sort of boot camp type thing, looked interesting from what I saw through the doors.

Want to know a secret?  I just unpacked my suitcase from my trip to Chicago last night :).  Yes, I did get back almost three weeks ago, I have problems.  Not only did I finally unpack, but I did laundry, and put the clothes away instead of just leaving them in my laundry basket.  That’s impressive for me people.  I also made dinner.  Granted it really only involved throwing a defrosted turkey burger made a few weeks ago onto the stove top, some sweet potato fries in the oven, and an ear of corn in a pot to boil, but for a Tuesday I was pretty damn productive.  Which means I get to stop and buy a bottle of wine on the way home from work today.

Alright, happy Wednesday, but seriously if anyone has any ideas of how to fix my Internet, I’ll be super happy.

Not a Fashion Blog

I’m glad you all approve of my purchases from over the weekend.  I don’t consider myself fashionable or trendy by any means which is why almost everything I own comes from J.Crew, and you’ll never see me start posting daily pics of my outfits, because really, I didn’t study fashion or anything like it.  I just like to share a good sale, and man was J.Crew having a wicked one, which is how I managed to get 7 things for $140.  Oh and the 10% student discount, because clearly I’m still a student ;).  Anyway, as expected my entire outfit today is from J.Crew.  I’m wearing the new boatneck linen 3/4 length shirt and navy Cafe Capri pants.

Yesterday I started a new weight routine courtesy of The Daily Burn, yes I’m still using it to track calories and workouts.  What I like about it is they give you 30 day routines to follow, and when you complete it you can choose another.  I finished the Weight Loss Training Plan, and yesterday started the Strength Training Plan.  Yesterday was Chest and Triceps and man were my arms tired after.

I also did the elliptical for 33 minutes before moving on to the weights.  I’m still having issues with random waves of nausea so I think it’s time to call the doctor and head in for a follow up appointment.  After some intense Googling last night, I’ve come to the conclusion that I might have some sort of inner or middle ear infection.  The headaches, nausea, dizziness, and actually random ear ache would all point to this, and the genius’ at the hospital never actually looked in my ears.  We’ll see though, all I know is I’m sick of feeling sick.  Oh and I’m not pregnant, a urine and blood test, and lack of sex all confirm this.

Despite being at work 9.5 hours yesterday instead of the usual 8.5 Monday wasn’t so bad, until I sat in traffic for 45 minutes on the way home not moving.  That wasn’t fun.  Today’s Tuesday, which probably means I’ll be swamped with a shit ton of crappy work to do.  Just looking forward to my half day on Friday and my three day week next week and then Chicagooooooo!
