Days 6 & 7 (Weekend)- 1/22-1/23/05

Throwing My Weight Around
Ok- Saturday is a crazy-busy day in the land of me. So I think I am going to make just one weekend post, every week.

Essentially, I was running around like crazy yesterday. I finally got my hair trimmed and styled, and I went out to lunch with my buddy Angela, and did a whole bunch of shopping at Ross and some craft stores- found more workout DVD’s, cute shoes and purses- and one emergency pair of dark rinse jeans, a workout outfit (pants & hoodie) that is knit, so can be dressed up or down to go with other things, and a striped black and pink sweater. I am trying not to buy more clothes though, simply because I am hoping they won’t fit in a few weeks! But in the meantime, I can feel slightly stylish without buying more clothes. If I just update the accessories, I can make the other stuff I have work for me.

Of course, when I made it home, I was exhausted. I was going to do my makeup day at the gym, but it closes early on the weekend. I ended up cranking out the sit-ups, then just relaxed and watched a movie and started a new knitting project. I actually think I need that kind of break to stay focused, because all I wanted to do today was work out. I was seriously rarin’ to go.

So, this is going to be written into law- There will be one day of relaxation a week, where I don’t have to worry about exercising. Especially since it will probably be my Saturday errand day.
