Random Friday Thoughts

Happy Friday to one and all!

So I'll start with a few NSV's.
  • Yesterday, a girl from work said "You look really cute today."  I was wearing an outfit I had worn dozens of times before.  I took it to mean, "OMG!  You look so much thinner, I could hardly recognize you!  You're turning into a full blown hottie!"  Yes, I'm sure that's exactly what she was going for.
  • I sucked in my stomach yesterday and noticed a difference.  OK...not sure if this is just me, but it got to the point with my weight that if I sucked in my gut, you couldn't tell a difference.  It didn't really move.  Yesterday, it did.
  • I went to the store after work to get pita bread and ranch dressing.  I stopped in front of the frosted cookies (my absolute FAV) and looked at them.  I REALLY wanted to buy them.  I walked out of the store with pita bread and ranch dressing.
So I didn't sleep particularly well last night.  Not real sure what the problem was so I hit snooze a couple time this morning and didn't have time to pack my work out bag.  I'm supposed to be doing Week 1 Day 3 of my 5k training today.  But now I have no workout clothes.  I wasn't going to feel too bad about this but as if he could read my mind, Patrick posted THIS on his on blog.  Talk about feeling totally called out.  Now, I still can't do my workout today.  I have plans this evening; otherwise, I would go home, get my workout stuff and go back to the gym but not enough time for that because I only had enough time in between work and plans to do my training.  Absolutely CANNOT jog in jeans...oh the chafing!  But in light of missing today, I'm doing 2, yes count them - 2, workouts tomorrow.  I already had plans to go to Latin Heat tomorrow.  Now, I'm going early and am going to complete my Day 3 before the Latin Heat class.  Will I be tired?  Oh yeah.  Will Latin Heat be extra tough?  Probably.  But I absolutely cannot get derailed from my 5k training.  I did the math and if I did the training for the 5k, 10k and half marathon consecutively, it would take me 33 weeks.  That leaves 19 extra weeks for breaks, injuries, repeating weeks because I'm so out of shape, etc.  I must stick to plan.  So, Patrick, while you've made me feel uber-guilty for not working out today, I'm kicking butt and taking names tomorrow. 

So my insurance crap is done and I have an appointment with my doc for my next fill (possibly).  It's not until 2/10/11!!!  Now, this isn't one of those offices that is hard to get into.  He's gone next week and then I'm gone the second half the following week and the first half of the week after.  Ugh.  So, I have almost another whole month before a fill.  I'm doing OK with food.  Not starving between meals or anything so I think I can stay on track.  While I wanted a fill before my cruise at the end of the month, I would only be able to get in a couple days before and I don't want to risk being stuck at sea and unable to drink anything because I'm too tight or something.  If I could get in next week, that'd be a different story.  But alas, it is what it is. 

So there you have it.  My random musings for the day.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  I leave you, of course, with a Friday Funny.

Congrats on the NSVs. They are the best. The snooze button and I are well aquainted too. That's great that you are doing so well with exercise. I think a double workout like you are planning would put me out of commission for a few days, but if you can handle it, good for you.

Kick butt tomorrow! Great NSV's.

Great NSVs!

I've done two (even three) workouts a day when the goal required it. You can totally double up & kick butt tomorrow! :)

NSV posts are always a charge to the system. You have definitely charged me up, as you do so often!

Didn't mean to call you out indirectly, but hey, a gentle nudge here and there from a friendly blogger buddy is a good thing. Today I nudged you, tomorrow someone will nudge me, before you know it, nudge nudge nudge and we are all skinny!

Love the NSV's you are making excellent progress.
