Good FRIDAY Morning, everyone! I totally spit my drink when I saw this meme. Now I have that song stuck in my head, but I think it's worth it.

I officially have two weeks of work under my belt and I am feeling happy! Now it is time to start developing some better routines that were off because of getting back into a new work schedule, and then the unexpected cold!

My pics today are humble brags to prove that I actually went to the gym, even though I got home much later than I planned. I forgot to log a pic of the treadmill miles for the challenge, so I got a pic of my watch... I managed 3 extremely slow miles, which was good because I had an otherwise 100% sedentary day. It was tough since I hadn't exercised at all in 2 weeks, and my sniffles made it hard to breathe through my nose, but I did it!

I only have 15 miles into challenge, but I have 7 days to go and I will do as much as I can. I am claiming a do-over in September!


Accountability: 100% **edit--nope I just unpacked my lunch box from yesterday and apparently I didn't eat 1/2 of what I brought? I have no memory of missing a meal.

QOTD: If you had a full time staff person, would you hire them to do cooking, cleaning or yard work? I am lucky to have an unpaid boyfriend who does the yard work, haha...so if I didn't have him, I would probably want that because I am terrible gardener! But as my life is now, I would love to have a personal chef! Bonus points if they would also do the dishes :)

No plan for dinner, yet! I might want to celebrate another great week with tacos!

Exercise: No time for the gym today, but I plan to walk about a mile through the Chinatown portion of my commute and catch the bus for the lat few miles, once I get through there.

My mom read an article about someone making tons of $ on Poshmark and for a hot sec I thinks thought it was going to fund her lavish lifestyle through retirement, lol. But then I burst her bubble and told her that there should probably be spreadsheets involved to stay organized...

its actually a ton of work, not just to list things, take measurements, etc but also to 'share' your posts on poshmark- then you have to pay an 'asisstant' to do those things for you. ugh

Good morning, everybody!

We had a nice time at the GLA gala last night. They had two really cool things during the ****tail hour. The first was that they had a woman that was riding around on this wine bicycle. It was kind of a four wheel cycle and she was way up high on it, and as she rode, there was propeller above her head that was filled with wine glasses and slowly spun around. If somebody wanted wine, she would reach up to the propeller thing, grab a glass and pour them a glass of Rose.

The second, was that another woman had a dress that was a table and filled with appetizers. Picture the old fashioned hoop skirts, except that this was flat on the top and filled with trays of snacks. I couldn't get Marilyn to take pictures of either one, so I will see if I can find pictures on the internet.

I'm working from home today. I thought that the Gala was tonight and that I was going to be home today primping, but that I would be in the office yesterday, so I made an appointment at Nordstrom to pick up some alterations. Then I found out about the gala being yesterday and didn't want to change my appointment. So, yes, basically I am staying home to shop.

Speaking of shopping, the supershoppers here would laugh at the wails of pain coming from
Marilyn as she contemplated having to go to the store to find a gala outfit.

We don't have a lot planned this weekend except that we are doing Murph at the local park. I will be interested to see how much my time has improved since May. I will be sure to overshare the results because of the whole reverse Fight Club thing.

QOTD: I think cooking. But I am fortunate to have an at-home spouse who can take care of most of the day to day errands. Marilyn also does most of the yard work. The yard work is a remnant from having two boys in two years. When they were younger, Marilyn would much prefer to do the yard work to give herself a break from the babies and it just stuck. If I tried to go out and mow the lawn she would just hand me a boy and scamper out the door.

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Turkey at barbecue place

Snack: Light and fit (we way overbought)

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day everybody!
