Ok, this is hard to admit, but I probably have not worked out on a regular basis in at least 6 months and I feel awful about it.
I went to the gym on Sunday. Finally.
I thought it would never happen again, even though I’d been craving the after-workout feeling for a while, I could not for the life of me get myself to the gym for a regular work out.
I blame it on the winter blues and the fact that I don’t own an Ipod.
I mean, how am I supposed to work out with 4 TV’s with different programs AND the stereo blasting at me at the gym? Seriously.
Everbody has an Ipod these days (even Carolina! ;)), and I don’t even own a simple MP3-player.
But then again, J has an Ipod. I guess, I could have borrowed it. Although, there is no music on it right now (we had to reset it)…ha!
So there, there is your excuse. And a damn good one, too ;)
Anyways, I finally kicked my “inneren Schweinehund” in the butt and just went toÂ the gym on Sunday. Yesterday I felt comfortably sore and now I am looking forward to the next work out in hope that the soreness will go away for good :)
Besides this glorious news (I know, I know), I went to my first babyshower ever (!) on Saturday. My co-worker is going to be a Dad in April and my other co-worker and I (just girls, you know) were invited to the babyshower. I honestly had no idea what to expect, but it was seriously fun!
In retrospect, I wish I had taken this American tradition and had run with it.
I would have loved to throw a babyshower for my sister :) But hey, maybe there will be a “next time”!
There were drinks and appetizers, we played some silly games (not the silly ones that I was told about though) like guessing the circumference of the baby belly by cutting a piece of ribbon (the one with the closest guess received a prize) and watched the mom-to-be unwrap her enormous (!) pile of gifts. Wow, people were so generous!
On top of all the gifts, they received like a 2-months-supply of diapers already. Not bad, considering what a pack of diapers costs these days!
The rest of my weekend was less than exciting.
I had to run my usual errands and I sat down to deal with my tax return. I tried out one of the free tax softwares online, and guess what? Who would have thought that I am entitled too a much bigger refund than previously anticipated!?
I could have totally missed that if I hadn’t tried out the online software. That really made my weekend! Wohoo!
(Now, you keep you fingers crossed that with all that budget crisis going on the federal government will actually disburse the refunds.)
