The long and winding road to fitness, day 104

Just Another Day in Paradise

Another lovely day in what passes for paradise at work.  I wonder why people think they need to be really rude to get what they want?  The first couple of customers I had to deal with came in mad and continued in that vein.  I like it when I can be all sweet to them and give them what they were wanting and then they can’t think of a reason to be mad any more.  It’s like they’re almost disappointed that I didn’t argue with them…too funny!

So…that was my day at work, busy, hectic, semi-productive…but I did get in 30 minutes of walking and who knows how much additional walking at work.

I stopped at Kroger this morning before work and stocked up on some Lean Cuisines to put in the freezer at work.  So now no excuses if I don’t have (or make) the time to prepare lunch…it’s sitting right there in the freezer.  I’m not a huge fan of the frozen dinners, but they sure are convenient…and probably healthier for me than fast food or vending machine junk.

I’m going in to work early tomorrow.  Should probably be thinking about at least getting ready for bed if I’m going to manage to get a little sleep tonight.  Looking forward to having next weekend off.  I’m trying to think of something fun to do for a few hours on Saturday, or I guess  it could be on Sunday, wouldn’t matter.  I just want to do something fun…got any suggestions?

The long and winding road to fitness, day 34

Icees!

What a wild and crazy day this was.  The auditor is in a nearby store, we have to be prepared…our district manager is coming for a visit,  more preparation.  Run, run, run…oh, no auditor today.  Oh, the district manager will be visiting on Saturday instead of today…so, another day wasted without getting any real work done…ahh…gotta love that!!

But I also had another good day with the eating and exercising…finished the day with 1625 calories and walked for 40 minutes,did lower body strength training, 8 exercises, 2 sets of each…not bad, not bad at all.  There was one time that I thought about heading to the break room for a bag of chips from the vending machine, but I ate an Icee  (I don’t know if that’s what they’re really called…maybe not…it’s those frozen slushy kind of things in the long tubes.)  that someone was nice enough to bring for all of us…and on a hot day like today, that tasted really good.  Totally satisfied me.

I also had a nice visit with a good friend (hey, Margaret)…she moved out of town, so now we don’t see one another like we did in the past.  We’ve got to get together and do something fun before summer ends.  We used to go to auctions and festivals frequently, now we see one another only occasionally.  So today was good.  Isn’t it a blessing to have good friends?  And have you noticed, the best of friends can pick right up where they left off no matter how long it’s been since they were together?

What fun things do you do with your friends during the summer?
