I've Been Busy Being Awesome...

If there is one thing I am, it's determined. I have bumped back up to visiting the gym twice a day, most days, but steadily working out 6 days a week. I'm working on my distance run for my 15k that is fast approaching, trying to psych myself up for my underwear run in the snow, and I'm LOVING spinning class! It burns so many calories!

I even got one of my BFF's to join me for one class a week! Which makes it even better!

I kinda missed all the time I use to spend in the gym. Not because I like working out, but I do enjoy how amazing I feel from all the workouts, both mentaly and physicaly.

11 lbs down. 13 more to go to lose the TWENTY FOUR pounds I packed back on by eating a truckton of crap over the holidays and being practically a vegetable.

I've been so exhausted latley that I have hardly even watched TV. Unheard of! But for me, being exhausted and sore from workouts is way better than being tired and sore from being fat. (again).

I started making muscle soaks, and bath salt scrubs at home and adding delicious scented oils to them. I'm a regular Martha Stewart! I look forward to soaking away the pain, and smelling like a dream!

As a reward for being awesome for my re-dedication, I bought myself new things. I got a new writing desk for my laptop, and a ladder shelf. Both things I needed, and will need again one day since they aren't real furniture, they came in a box.

Putting them together made me feel like a complete dumbass. Instructions are hard to read, and my toolbox consists of one phillips screwdriver, one hammer, a level, a measuring tape, misc. nails, and gorilla glue. So, I had to make do with what I had. I think paying extra for real wood, fully assembled and delivered furniture just may be worth the wait to save up for.

I also got some booming speakers for my computer. The bass scares the dog. I've been spending so much time making playlists for the gym, and converting all my discs to digital, that I felt it a smart purchase.

I'm now trying to decide just what I want to do for myself on Valentine's day....
