Fun Weekend Ahead

Saturday, October 15, 2011

So, after a pretty tumultuous Thursday/Thursday night, my friend made me take a cold shower to alleviate symptoms that we were pretty sure were due to heat stroke (not counting the ones that were due to my evil cold). She was right. I felt so much better, slept pretty well, and woke up Friday morning feeling infinitely better! So, I hopped a train to L.A. to spend the weekend with my best friend. We're going to the L.A. County Museum of Art to see the Tim Burton exhibit. Its with a group of people from her Bible study group, so I'm excited to meet them all. I already know 2 of them, and I'm glad to be seeing them again. Tomorrow will probably be pretty chill. :-)

So, now that I'm feeling better, I'm going to get into a routine again. Its been a rough couple weeks. I made the final decision a week ago to quit my job. I don't have another lined up, unfortunately, but I didn't like what I was doing, it wasn't helping me much financially, and it started to feel like a drain on my time. So, I'm praying for something better to come along soon. In the meantime, I'll concentrate on my two classes at school and getting as healthy as possible before having surgery for this gallbladder (whenever that'll be).

I'm going to start with the 28 Day Bootcamp again. It helped me a lot the first time around because it's structured and I'm told what to do. I like having something scheduled. I'm not so good at exercise on-the-fly. I think simultaneously I'll be doing the Couch to 5K program on Spark, too. I wanted to do the Iron Girl Del Mar 5k in November and was well on my way to being able to do so. Then my health took a dive. But, I think I've got it worked out now so I can safely do both. I'm not sure if I'll be up to par by the event, but I'll try anyway. I can always not do it if I feel like I'm not ready for it. There's always next year and there's always another 5k here in the sunny SD!

Well, I'm off. Tim Burton and LACMA awaits!

I'm a HUGE RAVENOUS fan of Futurama!

    Super cute pic! Hope you had a fun weekend! Just answered your question about the 5k and I see that you're planning to do the Iron Girl! I was debating between that and Shelter Island but I think I'm gonna go for Shelter Island, more for the scenery. But you have me comtemplating my decision again! ;)

    Funny how a weekend away can boost your spirits. Glad you had a great time. I am intrigued about your decision to quit your job. My BF1 quit hers in May to start a new business and end her weekly commute from Berkeley to Pine Grove. I know she wrestled with it a long time, but as Merle Haggard once said the "reason to quit, don't outnumber all the reasons why". Life is too short to get sucked into something you hate doing.

    Can't wait to read the new biography...

    Hope you're having a FANTASTIC time! Even if you don't run the Irongirl I'm sure it'd be a great deal of fun to walk. I still haven't signed up, but I'm planning to.

    Dammit! I'm so jealous that you get to go to the Tim Burton exhibit! You GOTS to take some pictures while you're there so I might bask in the soft glow of my laptop attempting to portray his awesomeness! BTW, love, love love the photo of you and Bender! Hang in there with the gallbladder thing, my wife had hers removed shortly before our wedding and the lead up to it was pretty horrific! I hope you aren't getting that constrictive feeling around your chestal area! That'd be a bummer! Have a great weekend!

    Sounds really fun. I am glad you are feeling better. Good plan for the exercise. Irongirl is a good choice for a 5k because they are such a supportive group.
