This post is about nothing. I’m just throwing out a short post so that I can get my gratitude list in for the week, so feel free to skip my babbling and get right to the gratitude list.
We had a pre thanksgiving feast at work today and I am so full of food, desserts, and basically crap that I can’t stand it. I’m not used to eating that much sugar at one time, so I’m crashing hard; hence the blogging to stay awake (the balance sheet reconciliations weren’t doing it for me). My co-workers always have a good time goading me into eating junk food because they like to see how much food that I can consume. I have this thing with cake icing (I could eat a whole tub of vanilla frosting in one sitting), so people’s birthdays are always a treat for them. Everyone dutifully scrapes their icing off of their own cake and dumps the gooey treat onto my plate so that they can watch me consume all of that sugar. They are sick bastards who like to see me on my sugar high. One time they even took up a collection to try and entice me into eating not one, but two cupcakes at one sitting. I would have liked the extra $50, but I was already stuffed and bouncing off the walls, so I disappointed them by passing.
The bad news about all of this eating is that I haven’t worked out in over a month. Oh sure, I’ve done some little short runs and some bike rides, but for the most part, I’ve done absolutely nothing really worth talking about since before my embolism. I feel junkie and soft. I think it’s time to buckle down and stop eating crap and get back into marathon shape.
Only a short 4 miler this week, a bike ride, and 10 minutes worth of core work. Yep crappy week on the workout front. I’ll get back into it.
1.) I am thankful that my daughter is a great kid. Typical teenager, but overall, she’s a great kid.
2.) I am thankful that there is no frosting at my house. I do not need anymore crap tonight. There is however, beer and wine there, so I will have to watch out.
3.) I am thankful that it is one day closer to the day that I leave to go see my family next week. I can’t wait!!
4.) I am thankful that my dog didn’t poop on the carpet today; she’s had some problems….
5.) I am thankful that I get to spend a great evening with my wonderful husband tonight!
Happy Friday everyone! I promise to get off my lazy butt and actually do something this weekend!
