What a great workout day today was!
Started with an energetic 5.39 miles this morning with my dad and ended it off with a 1/2 hr spinning class this evening with my mom.
I have to thank Kim & Kelly for helping me out with the shoulder problem! Now all I have to do is actually remember to shake out when I run. Maybe I’ll need to write it on my hand or something? I’m naturally the most forgetful person I know, but it’s even worse when I’m running!
Most of my day was spent in a really uncomfortable situation.
Given a list and description of five employees, I had to pick two to layoff and put the other three in order of next to layoff – last to layoff.
Did I mention this was all fictional? It was still really hard though! Especially since I am going to get graded on what I wrote. I’m guessing I did an okay job because the teacher responded with “outstanding work…” Why he ends all his emails with “…” I may never know. Unfortunately, the only information that I was given that was non-biased was the length of time everyone had been with the company. I did the whole “last hired, first fired” thing and ended up laying off a fictional man in a wheel chair 😦
Even though I ate a really late lunch, I got hungry a little earlier than I would have liked. What in the world am I talking about!? My lunch was actually on the early side.
I could erase that and pretend it never happened. But it did, so I wont. The worst thing is, when I got hungry I was thinking to myself “Why am I hungry so early?”
PB&J sandwich. I don’t really like toasted bread for sandwiches, but the only way for our bread to last is in the freezer and I am too lazy to thaw some out when I want it.
I didn’t put nearly as much filling in it as I should have. The bread part was dominating that sandwich (in a not so good kind of way) but I was too involved in firing fake people to get up and fix it.
By the time I got finished with my test, I had to bust my butt to get out the door in time to meet my mom at the gym.
I promise one of these days I’ll make it there on time!
Luckily, I got there right on the dot. The Wednesday night 5:30-6 class we go to is actually a starter class. The good thing about cycling though is that it doesn’t really matter. I still got a really good workout and pushed myself as much as I would have at any of the cycling classes. My legs were screaming at me the whole time but I was loving every second of it!
I took a shower at the gym after spinning so I wouldn’t stink up my microeconomics class. When I was getting ready to leave, I met this sweet little girl who is going to Washington D.C. for her 8th birthday! All I could think of was “What a strange thing to want for your birthday.” It’s pretty awesome though, if you ask me. Which you didn’t, but pretend you did :) Yay for 8 year olds wanting to see the white house & museums! She’s been asking her parents for this trip for the past three years according to the woman she was with! Crazy.
By the way: Does it bother anyone that I use spinning and cycling interchangeably? I don’t mean to. It just happens 😦 (they do mean the same thing though, right?)
When I left, I stopped by Food Lion for some grub. I went to take a picture of it when I got into class and realized I forgot my camera in the car. To make matters worse, I somehow forgot to save the picture of the pear 😦
Let’s pretend this was my d’Anjou pear. It wasn’t the prettiest pear in the world, but it tasted nice and juicy and amazing!
Pretzels & cinnamon goldfish were also consumed. That gross looking piece of random food in the bottom right of the bag was a leftover piece of a clif bar, which I also ate 🙂
I didn’t eat the whole bag worth of food. Just about half. Gaaaaah carbs. Too many carbs!
While we’re on the subject of too much of one food type, I want to mention that I’ve decided to do actual research *gasp* for that health post I’m going to do. I’ll have it to you all within the next couple days though!
Plans for the next few days:
- Statistics test tomorrow morning
- Possibly getting sized for my cap and gown (not sure if I actually care enough to go to the graduation. I’m just graduating from my community college and I’m not all that excited about it. It feels kind of weird to have a graduation half-way through my college experience.)
- Work tomorrow night at 5:30
- Christopher Newport University Friday for a tour!
- Work Friday night at 5:30
- Spinning class Saturday morning(?)
- Work at 3 on Saturday & Sunday
I’m sure I’ll be running at least a couple times during the next few days, but I’m unsure of the details on that.
I’ve yawned way too much while writing this post so I think it’s about time I hit the hay.
