Morning Ritual: Bonjour, friends!! Can I just say that I ADORE having to get up early now? I know, I know, it's nuts but hear me out. I love being up in the morning, sipping coffee and watching CNN, and feeling like a productive member of society. Despite it being a STRUGGLE to actually get out of bed when my alarm goes off, I'm loving it. I hope that eventually I might be able to get up even earlier so I can have more time to savor my coffee, write my 750 words, and catch up on blogs (cause seriously, I have no other time to do so).
Work: I'm writing this, funnily enough, before I head to work for the day! Today will be my first day actually sitting in my department all day. I'm eager to learn so I can actually start being a helpful member of the team. Ma Soeur asked me yesterday what exactly I'm going to be doing, and honestly... I have no idea haha. I've never done this job before! The work environment is fast-paced and team-oriented though so I'm excited. :D I've already begun making a list of "Office Must-Haves." Things like hand lotion, essential oils, something fragrance-y, a coffee/tea tumbler, cute notepads, fun pens, etc. Can you think of any office essentials I need to add to my list?
Fit for Fall: Sooo I've been TOTALLY sucking. That's not true - I've kept up with my workouts, but my eating has been all over the place. As a result, I feel gross and bloated and sluggish so I want to nip this in the bud asap. I couldn't go to my WW meeting last night because it was Roomie Deux's birthday, and I think knowing that I wouldn't weigh in definitely made an impact on how I ate. I wouldn't be surprised if I gain next week! Le sigh. Anyway, as far as MOVIN and GROOVIN is concerned, I'm doing well. I've decided to loosely follow Hal Higdon's 10k training plan (for novices). It seems doable, customizable, and I like how the runs are spaced out. Because I couldn't go to the gym last night, I did my 2.5 miles on Monday (with a belly full of pizza - OW) and tonight is 30 min. cross (boooo I HATE the elliptical). Anyone want to join moi?
Gotta run! Have a FABULOUS HUMP DAY!!
