First Tea

It's been an... interesting day, to say the least. Woke up with a sharp, stabbing pain in the right side of my abdomen. Worked out with Deb, which is always a fun/torturous experience ;-). And right after i stepped out of the shower, i checked my Blackberry (i.e. crackberry), and lo and behold what do i see? That i missed the first of a series of 8:30 a.m. Tuesday meetings. Well, SHIT. I could've sworn that started next week - oh wait, no. This week. Today. February 3. Awesome.

Fast forwarded several, somewhat grueling hours, and here i sit enjoying my first afternoon tea at work. Because i haven't gotten all i need for a proper tea, this will have to do. Earl Grey decaf (from a bag, but at least it's Mighty Leaf!)sans milk (boo) and the closest thing i could find to British biscuits - Whole Foods' organic lemon cookies. It's not quite as lovely as Holly's, but it's a nice change of pace. Soon i'll bake my own scumptious treats, brew loose tea, and bring some organic milk to work. All in good time...

Do tell about this workout with Deb (or at least refer me to the previous post where you talk about it). I've been practicing yoga for some time now and just started a beginners running program (totally at my own pace). I am always interested in finding new and exciting ways to shed these unwanted winter pounds.

Melita - Deb is my fabulous trainer/friend! She used to work at the Google gym in Cali and trained my sister for her wedding. She moved back to Austin with her hubby, and i started working out with her last April (law school was tres unkind to my figure). I applaud you for the runners program! I was a runner for about 6 months back in college and have been aching to get back to it. But it's SO HARD!

Deb sounds wonderful. I am jealous :) I live in Northern WV and it has been very cool and snowy here. It makes it difficult to stay motivated when all you want to do is curl up and stay warm. I am bound and determined though. Thanks for the applause. If you do get back into running let us know how it goes.
