Blue Screen of Death and No Midnight Snacking!

Let me just start this post by saying that I did NOT have a midnight snack last night! I woke up in the middle of the night for the bathroom, contemplated eating but snapped out of it and went back to bed. Woke up ready to conquer the world and felt great!

Then I got to work and by 8:15 I was staring at the blue screen of death. It took IT 7 1/2 hours to get my computer back to me, without any of my documents and projects that I have worked on for the past 5 months. It’s cool, I only worked on those projects for shits and giggles and didn’t need them for anything.

Since this is as exciting as my day got, please admire the only photo worth sharing. This was when my computer froze on me, right before getting the blue screen of death. Please admire my cute Andy Roddick wallpaper. The koala makes him about 20 times sexier, bringing his sexiness to level 97. Scorcher!

I was given a company laptop to use for the day, which weighed about 20 lbs. I should have just done my weights workout with that mofo! My new project at work involves going through the photographs of our employees and choosing which picture to use as the headshot for each employee’s page. This is easily my favorite project I’ve ever been a part of. Some of the photos were so awkward that I couldn’t stop laughing. When I walked by my boss to go to the kitchen, or probably the bathroom since I pee 23 times a day at work, she asked me why I couldn’t contain my laughter. I brought her over to my computer, showed her a few poses by our lovely engineers and she quickly knew why I couldn’t use my inside laugh. This takes “Awkward Family Photos” to a whole nother level. These men need posing tips, stat!

Morning Workout

  • 3.3 mile run
  • 2 sets of 13 skiing dumbbell squats
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side dumbbell crunches
  • 2 sets of 20 mountain climbers
  • 1 minute plank hold
  • Stretching
  • 100 jump rope, alternating single and double jumps

Afternoon Workout

  • 2 mile run
  • 15 minutes unknown cardio machine
  • Stretching

I literally do not know where the time went on this workout. The medicine ball was missing, otherwise I would have loved to work on my core.

After work, I went out in hopes of finding my brother’s birthday gift. I struck out, for him at least. I made it home with a bag of candy corn and a jar of peanut butter. WOW. Fat ass! A high school Target employee tried flirting with me over the bag of candy corn. I humored him and played along, but even he confused me with his flirting. Sometimes you just have to smile, nod your head and agree. Then get the hell out of the store with your junk food fuel.

Alright, it’s almost time for the season premiere of Parks & Rec, so it’s time for me to get ready for bed and drool over Chris Traeger. Literally.

Tune in tomorrow so I can report that I went 2 days without midnight snacking. Shazam!

I’m a Walking Blueberry

Today I’ve been walking around feeling like a blueberry. You know, plump and blue. I consumed just a little too much peanut butter last night and it left me with a little belly today. Also, I’m wearing a turquoise tank top with a royal blue sweater over it, cue the blueberry jokes. I literally didn’t know what to wear this morning and this was the result. I’m too embarrassed so this will NOT be documented.

I hit the gym a little earlier today as I have a meeting with the two heads of the Aviation department. I literally (said like Chris Traeger aka heart-throb Rob Lowe), didn’t think I’d be running long, my legs felt like bricks and I was having trouble breathing in the sauna, I mean gym.

I ended up getting into the run about halfway through before I jumped on the rowing machine.

Lunch-Time Workout

  • 1.7 mile run
  • 5 minutes rowing, level 5 (wuss)
  • Stretching
  • 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups, 10 lbs.
  • 30 stability ball crunches with 10. lb. medicine ball
  • 30 side crunches with 10 lb. medicine ball

Olympics 2016?

After showering the sweat off, my stomach started grumbling and I annihilated my turkey, spinach, alfalfa sprouts and mustard wrap, with a side of cherry tomatoes and sugar snap peas. Phew, long sentence.

Healthy & Filling!

Like I said, today is a fresh start with healthy and smart choices.

Off to meet with those flying experts! 🙂
