Today was an almost all cardio day, which means that I did a lot of thinking. And some day dreaming. I read 2 magazines while I used the AMT for 35 minutes. I can't remember what I read except that Carrie Underwood works out 1.5 hrs. per day and she eats mostly vegan. I ran on the treadmill for 32:30 and went 4.2 miles. I did stop after 2 miles to use the restroom. You do what you gotta do. I finished with some planks, crunches, and mountain climbers.
What was I thinking about? Christmas, Thanksgiving, jury duty, kids, the house, friends. I tried to make sure I had good posture when I was running. I wondered why more people aren't at the gym. I thought about asking if I could rent the gym on my birthday or have a zumba or bodypump class party. I wonder if they would do that ? Some of the songs I heard while running today made me want to dance. And I don't dance. I guess I need to change things up. Good thing they are adding those classes next month.
I have jury duty the week of Thanksgiving. I think that means I won't get called in that week. But the next week is my birthday. That would be the BEST birthday!
I tried to encourage a friend to join the gym this week. I am not sure if I convinced her. I just know that she would be happier with herself if she worked out hard for a while and I am happy to help her. She said she didn't want people to watch her and she wasn't sure about leaving her child in a daycare room. So, I offered to let her little boy play with mine while she works out.
Yesterday was so nice outside. We played with cousins and neighbors for several hours. I went to parent/teacher conferences in the evening. Both of our girls are good students. It makes life a lot easier. Our conferences were quick. That was nice.
Trying to keep myself from putting up Christmas stuff. I think I can wait another week. That's pretty good, right?
When do you start decorating for Christmas? Real or fake tree?
