Gosh, it's been a busy week - both at work and outside of work, or so it seems. I suppose that since I have not posted since Monday I should write an update of the week's events.
Monday - I did my TIU workout, but didn't have time for cardio. Other than that, it was the typical ritual.
Tuesday - I didn't do a traditional workout. Instead I had to shovel my way into my house, yet again. By the time I got home and got done shoveling it was getting kind of late. By the time I warmed up from being out so long in the cold, I was hungry. So? I had dinner and relaxed for the evening. I'm quite certain it took me hours before I felt warm!
Wednesday - I worked late then met some friends for dinner (late). We went to a Mexican choice so between margaritas and Mexican food, I totally blew it on my calories. I also did not end up working out because instead of going over to my parents' I went to my boyfriend's instead. So, if you're keeping track, that's two days with no traditional workout and no cardio since Sunday (I suppose shoveling does count as a little light cardio though). Anyway, I didn't have my workout stuff with me and by the time I ate and drank, my belly was full and I was tired. Apparently I was super tired because when we went to bed, my boyfriend watched a movie...And he also got up and had a snack during that time. All while sitting on the bed next to me. I was oblivious! Yeah, I was tired, for sure.
Today - Thanks to the return of nasty Winter weather (yesterday was a nice break; as were clear roads yesterday afternoon and this morning), I'm not going home. I kind of knew this was coming so I made sure I packed extra clothes and such for tomorrow. It's snowing and blowing like crazy again. Yay. I'm not sure if, after I workout, I'll stay at my parents' house for the evening of if I'll go over to my boyfriend's. Or perhaps he'll come over there. Naturally we're ridiculous and spent every possible minute together but he also borrowed a movie from someone that we both want to see. Maybe if I don't go there I can convince him to wait and we will watch it tomorrow or Saturday! I guess the events of the evening will depend on how the weather is when I finish my workout and such. I'm not feeling like I want to drive anywhere. At all. However, it would be nice to go see the man. It's definitely been worse out than it is now and I've driven to his house in worse weather than this, so I guess it'll depend what I feel like doing a little later. It will also depend on what the "back roads" are like as I can take two possible routes there from my parents' house. One is the long way, which is all main roads but takes longer. I've noticed that main roads also mean other crazy drivers who make me nervous. However, I'm never quite certain on what the back roads will be like. It's a total catch 22 sometimes.
One thing I know for sure is that I am beyond tired of this weather! It's only the end of January and I feel like we've already had months of crazy weather. I guess that's because this Winter (so far) has been worse than any Winter I can recall. I don't know what phenomenon is to blame, but it's friggin' annoying. I have, seriously, had enough already. Enough! As a mental health professional, I'd be really interested to see the changes in rates of depression (mostly Seasonal Affective Disorder) this year versus other recent years. Personally, I am not feeling depressed but I can see how it might start to effect some people. It's cold. It's dark. It's too dang crappy to do much of anything.
Well I suppose, that's my update for now. I will be getting my workout done and then I'll see what I want to do for the evening.... I'd like to be lazy the entire evening but I'm not quite sure that's the best plan. Especially since I have not worked out since Monday. Laziness, be gone; I've got stuff to do!!
Hope your week is going well!!
