1 – As a welcome back from vacation gift, my body has decided to rebel against me and get sick. It started with a sore throat on Monday afternoon and has morphed into congestion, sneezing, and just feeling very groggy. I can barely keep my eyes open at work, and sleep comes fitfully for me at night. I’ve been taking it easy after work but it’s been a very yucky week for me. I’m hoping I start feeling better by tomorrow because…
2 – I’m starting a new boot camp! To be honest, I haven’t really been feeling the new boot camp trainers at the boot camp I’ve been attending for a few months now that Michael Pittman is gone. I really, really liked the way he conducted the class and it challenged me in a good way and made me excited. Now that he and my absolutely favorite trainer are both gone, it’s not the same. So when I saw a Groupon for 4 weeks of unlimited boot camp classes for just $35, I snatched it up! I’ve actually seen this boot camp class at a park I sometimes run at and I thought it would be a good change for me. I’ll be going three days a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) and I’m looking forward to challenging my body in a new way. And believe me, my body needs it after the past few weeks I’ve had!
3 – My dad friend requested me on Facebook two weeks ago. His request is still sitting in my inbox. On the one hand, giving him any sort of access to my life scares the crap out of me. And on the other? It’s my father. And I miss him like crazy. I don’t know what to do, but I can’t help but click on his profile once a day to see his face. And knowing he’s okay, for now, is a huge relief to me. (But I’m also not going to start back a relationship, unless change has happened in his heart and life.) For those who are confused, a back story on what happened with my relationship with my father is here.
4 – Who watched the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance last night? Last season was a disappointing one, in my opinion. (It was obvious who the judges favorite was and, well, she wasn’t mine…) So I’m hoping this season gets back to their roots! And also? Stella? Can she please go to Vegas? I know she’s, like, two, but I would vote for her! She had some serious moves and stage presence! (I’m keeping this episode in my DVR for whenever I need a pick-me-up. Stella has captured my heart.)
5 – I am completely, 100% looking forward to this three-day weekend. I’m hoping to use it to relax and catch up on sleep, as well as doing some home organization and meal planning (since I’m back at Weight Watchers as of yesterday…). I don’t have any fun plans but considering I just got back from a CRUISE… I guess that’s okay.
