The Full Post

I already told you the highlight of my weekend, but there were other good things I wanted to share as well. First of all, I went to the GYM!! For the first time since August! I woke up early on Saturday and went to spin class before Target. Then yesterday I went and did the stair-stepper for about a half hour. Before I stopped going, the stair-stepper was my new challenge. I have long ago mastered the elliptical and while I think its a great workout, I don't find it totally challenging. I need to do it for at least an hour to really feel anything. Even though the machine tells me I burn more calories with the elliptical, I am definitely more worn out after the stair-stepper. (And spin... the class can be absolutely brutal but I love it.) Saturday I ate really well, but yesterday I went out for Thai and felt like total crap afterwards. Not like food-poisoning crap or anything, but more like the way I usually feel made even worse because now I know I can feel so much better. Does that make sense? Anyway, I have leftovers in my fridge and I don't even know if I will eat them because that's how different the feeling was. I was tired, and dragging, and uncomfortably full. We went to the mall after and I felt sluggish and gross. NOT how you want to feel while trying on jeans. (Even though they were WAY out of my price range and I wasn't planning to buy any, but I would still like to feel hot and pretend like I can afford $160 jeans, thankyou.) Anyway, other than that it was a fantastic day off, and I so wish I could have a full day off more than once every couple of months. I am so jealous of people who get weekends. I haven't had weekends in a LONG TIME. Hopefully this summer.. everyone cross your fingers for me :) And I also had a margarita yesterday, which cannot be understated. It was heaven in a fancy glass.

I'm about to leave work, late due to a late meeting, but whatever. They are paying me more so I guess I need to stay when asked. I hope I make it to the gym because I am dragging again, but maybe its what I need.
