Planning stages

Work is sporadically crazy, and I’m gearing up to be out of town for more than a week, but all I can think about today is getting my life and schedule back to normal. I’m really looking forward to it, in fact.

First, the status update: Haven’t climbed in over a week now, and no Jazzercise since before Philly (Memorial Day). I have been using the treadmill desk during the day some, to the tune of about two miles twice a week, so nothing big. Mostly I’ve been sitting on my butt in the driver’s seat of a car traveling the land. I’m about to do it again tomorrow. Then a week from tomorrow we come back, to turn around and go a different directly the next day for four days. Many miles to go before I get back to normal.

Things I love:

  • my big jug of snack mix (almonds, pistachios, dried cherries & cranberries, sunflower seeds and cinnamon life cereal)
  • mia drink mix and my 2-quart water jug. Working in the Alabama heat I’m making sure to refill and drink that water jug at least 4 times, on top of anything else we may drink during the day. So far it’s really helped with dry skin and sinuses.
  • mcdonald’s fruit smoothies – looking forward to trying the new mango pineapple
  • smart portion sizes – when i’m with the group and the choices are limited to none, at least I’m reigning it in. drink first to make sure i’m not stuffing my face from what is actually thirst.

The 100 degree Alabama heat and humidity is not my friend, but we’ll be out in it for long hours over the 4th of July holiday as we work our three remaining fireworks shows. Last Saturday’s show was only a preview, since it was so small. It practically spoiled us, but the preview of all the road construction and the long drive wasn’t fun.

Things to do:

  • My Nazeem Allayl Belly Dance studio certificate for 6 free classes expires July 24, so I have to go turn it in for a punch card before then. If it doesn’t work out to take a class with Laura, I can just go solo. Must remember to look at their weekend schedule especially for some options.
  • Kit & I both have certificates for 6 Fast Fit 1000 classes, which expire Oct 18. We have to schedule a fitness evaluation before we can show up for a class, so that needs to be done ASAP when the traveling is done.
  • I’ve picked up the TurboFire dvd workouts, which has a 90-day workout schedule to follow. I’m hoping to start that program around July 17th on top of whatever else we’ve got going on.
  • When we get back and I’m around for evening Jazzercise again, I sure would like to up it to 3 days a week.
  • Then there’s that pool membership we just got! I know James wants to use it mostly to cool off on the weekends, but it’s always there for laps on a really hot day. Just have to remember the new hair rules I’m supposed to follow after this keratin treatment, and use the danged swim-cap.

You’d think a person with this many options to workout would be skinnier, no?
