Well friends, today was full of things I’m not too proud of. For starters, I wore makeup to the gym. Usually I can’t understand why people put on makeup before working out, but this morning I was draggin’ and adding blue eyeliner usually makes me feel better. It worked, but I felt ridiculous. Today’s gym experience consisted of 30 minutes on the treadmill set on the incline workout. I hate running on treadmills, a hate which was reaffirmed this morning when I kept smacking my hands on the front of the treadmill.
I gladly hopped off after 30 minutes, but then came my next not-so-proud moment. I originally planned on going to a Fit Boxe class following my treadmill time, but I completely chickened out 😦 I saw a guy who I thought was the group instructor and he looked like a hard body muscle man, plus I didn’t actually know what Fit Boxe was and I got cold feet. There’s another class on Thursday that I’m trying to work up the courage to attend. I’m sure you’ll hear about it later this week 😛
When we got home I cleaned up and sat down to finish What the Dog Saw. By the last 50 pages, I was just ready to be done with it, but felt so guilty about my first two personal transgressions this morning, I managed to power through. I did learn some things thanks to Mr. Gladwell, but overall I’m glad I’m finished with the book. I then picked up Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris and read it all the way through. It’s an extremely quick read and I laughed out loud several times! I really enjoyed it, especially after reading essays that made me feel like most of our efforts in life are futile.
My 3rd crime? Mom made these delicious smelling Duncan-Hines brownies because our landlord delivered eggs fresh from his chickens, but two were a little cracked and Mom didn’t want them to go to waste.
By the time they were out of the oven, I was practically drooling they smelled so good. She specifically stated the brownies were for dessert tonight, but c’mon, how can I resist a fresh-out-of-the-oven brownie? So I ate one… Mom wasn’t exactly pleased but she understood. Sorry Mom!!
I’ve been catching up on season 3 of Downton Abbey since I didn’t have time to watch it in school and holy cow!! This season is a heart wringer! I still have about 4 episodes left I think but man, I cried like a baby today. Movies and TV shows really get to me. Better stick to books, so on that note, off to go start another book from the stack!
