Random bits of life

Here I am breaking my own rule to finally, finally blog. It’s 10p, Friday night and I’m blogging from bed while “watching” a Disney flick with The Husband and Peanut. Please don’t ask me why Peanut is up this late, I really don’t know. (sigh…)

I hate to admit that work has been keeping me pretty busy. I am not sure if I mentioned it earlier, but I started a new job 6 months ago. Same company, different department. The job is drastically different, my stress level is up, I barely make it out to lunch, but I am much happier.

(Peanut, unfortunately, is not ready for movies, so we’ve now switched to Baly – Disney Playhouse France.)

So my job has me in the “new” building on campus complete with a “new” fitness center.

I had started taking the total body fitness class every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch back in January, to complement the running regime I was starting over….again. I knew the class was serious because everyone had to go through an fitness/health assessment before they could start. A tape measure, calipers, a VO2 test, and a pathetic attempt at a pull-up I started class.

After a couple classes in, the trainer suggested I schedule some 1:1 time to work on form, reach my goals quicker, blah, blah. After days of nagging, I was finally suckered in signed up for 1:1 personal training. So, here I am 4 weeks into my personal training sessions and am loving it! I really never thought I’d enjoy getting my ass handed to me on a silver platter, but I am, and it’s paying off! I was (partially) reassessed a few days ago and the measurements were smaller than what they were 4-6 weeks ago. Wahoo!

To quote the brilliant Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy.” Here I am, addicted to endorphins.

    And Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands! =) Love that movie, but better yet, good for you for getting your butt into shape. I’m going to be there at some point after this baby is born. Sorry that work is so stressful. I hope it will get easier down the road!
