thank goodness.

I must say, I’ve never been happier for Sunday to come around. Last week was one of the worst weeks ever. I’m really ready to start a new week – fresh.

  • Monday I had undoubtedly the worst day of my professional career. I made a big mistake. I didn’t make the initial mistake, but I contributed to it and should have caught it. It was my responsibility to catch it and I didn’t. I’m not going to get into the details, because frankly, I’m tired of thinking about it, but it was bad news. It was one of those knock-the-wind-out-of-you, wake-me-up-from this-nightmare, is-this-really-happening moments. Luckily I work with some really amazing people, and everyone rallied.
  • Due to some technical difficulties, I couldn’t start p90x last week, but now I’m all set and ready to go now! Tomorrow I start!
  • I’ve been having headaches, so I went to the eye doctor. Turns out, I’m nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in the other. Perfect. Thanks. How does that even happen??
  • I’m fighting allergies or a cold. It’s more annoying than anything and I’m really tired of sneezing. I always get nervous when I’m having a sneeze attack while I’m driving. I always feel like I’m going to get in an accident. Anyone else?

There are a few other things that happened this week, but they aren’t mine to share. So I won’t. All in all, the stress-o-meter has just been running too high. Sorry to be such a whiny blogger tonight. I promise I won’t make a habit of it. Luckily, today marks the start of a new week!

P90X.

I’ve been struggling with what to do about working out. I haven’t consistently exercised since a few weeks before our wedding. And I really need to. Besides losing a few pounds, it’ll give me more energy, help me sleep better at night and feel better about myself altogether.  I don’t really want to join a gym, but it’s still pretty cold, dark and rainy to be working out outside several times a week. And then I came up with the perfect solution. P90X! Derek is going to share the garage (aka man camp) with me and I’m going to try to keep to the P90X “Classic” routine! Work out starts tomorrow! If anyone has any experience/advice with P90X, I’d love to hear about it.
