3rd Time's a Charm

Just submitted another offer on a house. I lost out on the 2 other houses that I made offers on and I'm hoping this one's it. House hunting can be very stressful! Keep your fingers crossed!

Anything but Running

I was on such a runner's high right after running at Disney. Now I'd rather do anything but run. At least I've been getting other workouts in, just not the ones I'm supposed to be doing. But sometimes I just need a break.

M - 55 min indoor soccer game with 1 sub
Tu - FIT (strength)class at the gym
W - off, but went sledding and walking back up the hill has to count for something, right?
Th - 15 min elliptical, Strictly Strength class at the gym
Fr - Cycle class

I've been slacking on my blogging so here's a quick recap of the last few days...
Saturday...FB cooked up some of his fresh caught perch, we headed to the Pistons game at the Palace.
Sunday...FB & I went for a little Sunday drive and had breakfast at a diner in Fair Haven on Anchor Bay. I went to my parents house for the Super Bowl.
Monday...found out I didn't get the house. a ticket for turning right on red on my way home from the gym, had dinner with my parents and made cookies for my roommates 3-day fundraiser.
Wednesday...Date night!!! Went to dinner at On the Border, then went sledding.

A week after making the second offer on the house and still, no news. No new listings either.

Wednesday did turn out to be a stellar day. I cycled in the morning, was in a great mood all day, and then got in a second workout in the evening. I ran on the treadmill for 3.5 miles, then swam for about 20 minutes. It felt so good to be swimming again. I just need to make a habit of it.

Yesterday, on the other hand, was not such a good day. I think I had a "workout hangover". I was tired and irritable. To make matters worse, I had to sit through 3 straight (as in no 10 minute break) hours of meetings in a hot, stuffy room to discuss the software conversion at work. One of my co-workers was being obnoxious and unprofessional and kept interrupting the consultants and other co-workers during the discussion. I was so exhausted by the time I left that meeting. I didn't have any energy for a workout in the evening. But I was so tired that I went to bed early, which led to waking up early for the Friday morning cycling class. It was a good one today with great music and lots of hill climbs followed by downhill sprints.

I'm hoping the weekend will bring more good workouts...

Snowy Day

It's a beautiful snowy day here. Large fluffy flakes are falling from the sky in a casual sort of movement. It's one of those snow's where you just want to stop and enjoy it. The weather is in the 30's, chilly, but not unbearable. I wish I could put on my running clothes and head out for a peaceful, quite run.

Still no news on the house. I'm staying optimistic.

I made it to another morning cycling class this morning. Getting up at 4:30am is brutal, but totally worth it when that class is done. It's going to be a good day!
