I just went through and read all that I've missed.
Dawn - CONGRATS!! you look soooo great and pretty and happy! nice looking husband too and that is TOO KEWL about former Big Bird j/p!
Reda - I read everything but I mostly remember trying to get air to the sumac
sunster - Oh isn't it easy to lose weight on the road! my longest trips have only been 3 days each way but I always drop real pounds (not just water weight) because my focus changes so.
Tammy - I see it was a month ago that you mentioned it but I am soooo sorry about the gosh-darned (I am censoring myself) depression hitting you! that suxs so bad and I wish I could make it disappear for you.
Colleen - I always see what you have on FB even if I don't reply
Aaron - hi!
well even though I rode alot, the past few months have just been a blur because of the added job at work, because of having to be at work at 7 a.m. 6 days a week, the 2 or 3 additional hours a day because of covering the breakfast position, really was a load.
So last week I got up my courage and asked for a meeting with the manager,for some kind of extra compensation for 'stepping up to the plate, being a team player' and all that, and for whatever reason I had to wait almost 4 days; and then finally we had a couple minutes of his time to talk, and he was SO freakin condenscending and a jerk to me..it really was awful. It's just real life
and I should just focus that I know I was a good employee, and did a great job. #$%& them!
I did make sure to tell him that the additional responsibilites caused me to 'lose sleep and gain weight' and he even questioned that..he said 'it's usually the other way around, people sleep more and gain weight' WTF?? I then stated that having to be at work so early and then more hours, made my usual 7 am workout time impossible. So he finally says, 'what are your expectations?' (money-wise) and I tersely barked "ANYTHING?!"
So my beloved summer job changed to wanting to get the he// out of there. The last day is this Sunday and this is the first time in 13 years that I have wanted the season to end!
so sorry I took all this space to complain! grrr.
So I have worked out ONE day a week for 2 and a half months, instead of working out 6 days a week! I am still in size 10 but they are tight. and I can see the softness in my midsection . I should be glad that soon I will work for the Rat B@stard and can work out every morning again
today is an unexpected day off ,my chef boss (who was astounded at learning what the idiot manager said to me) arranged it, so I am so glad at being able to do nothing all day if I want
the temps today might make it to 60, but it is real foggy now (mid morning) so I should do indoor stuff and try ot get out on my bike this afternoon.
Tammy, yes we had some cold temperatures already, down to low 30's and finally a killing frost the other week, but then we had sun and high 60's which was beautiful! the foliage was really great this year too. Probably about more than half the leaves are off now, some trees are completely bare but others still have nice yellow/orange but all the reds are gone. which reminds me I have to rake leaves, ugh.
