Nothing like slicing your finger open

to start off your morning. Yup. 7AM, rushing around to get everything done before work. The serrated knife and my finger decided to have a date.
Ohhh yeah. I can just tell today is gonna be a good one. It's cloudy too, did I mention?

I'm telling you. My mood has a direct correlation with the weather. The sunnier it is, the cheerier I feel. At least it's not Monday.

Monday Gym Workout:
25 min elliptical
Kettle bell squats with arm raises (10 lbs, 12 reps X 3 sets)
Cable rows (70lbs, 12 reps X 3 sets)
Skull crushers (12 lbs each hand, 10 reps X 3 Sets)
abs on incline bench
Lat pull downs (45 lbs 12 reps X 3 sets)
Hip abductor things the PT taught me
Abs on the cable machine
biceps curls (25 lbs, 10 reps X 2 sets)
Abs thing PT taught me
foam roll!!!
~about 75-80 minutes

I have a four mile run later this evening. My legs are feeling surprisingly fresh today, so hopefully it will be a good run to make up for this morning! And I am hoping it will help me clear my head as well. I have been doing a lot of thinking about my very near future, in terms of living situation and job. I have good reason to be worried about the security of it all, as they have just announced pay cuts. My lease for my current house ends in a couple of months too, and I just don't know what I am going to do at that point, financially speaking. I am also seriously looking into other career opportunities. So I have a lot to think about. Nothing like a run to help me find enlightenment. At least 4 miles of enlightenment.

Sorry to be a betty downer, but thanks for "listening." I thought about just pretending to be cheerful, but honestly, I am finding that writing it down helps me see things in perspective. And now that I am feeling much better; my positivity list, and video that positively made me laugh!

1) I am grateful for the wonderful career opportunities I have had so far
2) I like to savor the smell of my kitten (well, he's a full blown cat by now, but will always be a kitty in my mind) when he is falling asleep on my bed (I find it to be so comforting)
3) I am hopeful that my future will bring nothing but the best!


  1. wow. that monday gym workout is crazy!!! can you send some of that gym motivation my way?

  2. Ah! I can't believe you cut your finger! What a nightmare. Good thing you didn't have to go to the ER or anything. I'm sorry to hear about the doubts with your career, but girl I hear you. I haven't even started my career and I'm already doubting it! Hopefully your run cleared your head and de-stressed. Nice Monday workout!
