Perhaps you remember snowmaggedon 2010. Well, its 2011 and at the rate we are going it is going to be even worse. I refused to go out in the crap yesterday (we had a snow day) so all of these photos have been stolen from my mom.
Word on the streets is that it is going to snow more tonight and again next Tuesday another storm should arrive. Frig. Tomorrow I plan to run and it looks like I’ll be stuck on the dreadmill again. Thanks snow. Another thing I can dislike you for.
Anyway, I made the best of my snowday yesterday by getting on the trainer while watching What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and doing some P90X abs. Grape is such a fantastic movie; it had been years since I last watched it and I forgot how much I loved it! After my awesome workout I pretty much felt justified in doing nothing for the rest of the day. I watched a bunch of cheesy Lifetime movies, ate Kraft Mac & Cheese and eventually got bored enough to clean my house. And it was still only 6pm! How do people stay home all day and not work? I don’t even like my job, but man, I need to work!
And while we are on the subject of work: somebody asked me the other day what my dream job was…and it dawned on me that I didn’t really have one. I mean, I do, but they are all completely unattainable. Which sucks. but it’s true. I mean, I can’t just be a travel writer. I can’t just be the PR person for an organization I really believe in. Those things don’t just happen…they have to be made to happen. I don’t necessarily feel stuck for life in the job I have now…if I did, I would probably lose my mind…but I do feel like I will always have an office job of some sort. Perhaps one day that office will be at a magazine, or in a building that does non-profit work. And I will go there and be happy every day because I love my job.
Speaking of happiness…28 days until I am in sunny Florida. 🙂 There is no snow in sunny Florida-score! And speaking of Florida…I need to get myself into bikini form, stat! It has given me the motivation to go at my work-outs hardcore and even finally give into the P90X. But here’s the thing about P90X…I wouldn’t say I am doing it, but I am. It’s like this- I enjoy some of the workouts and like doing them at home, but I am not following the schedule or the nutritional parts. So I really don’t like to say I am “doing P90X” since I am really just half-assing it as part of my off-season training and to get ready for Florida. Thoughts on that anyone? Have you done it to the T or modified it in any way?
Oh, and FYI- for whatever reason, I have no idea why…my google reader will not log on when I am on my laptop at home. I finally got caught up on blogs and then BAM can’t get on all the sudden. I am hoping it is a fixable cookies type issue but if not, I’ll catch up with you all on Monday! Have a fabulous weekend everyone ❤
