Happy Monday Bleeps!
*Insert load groan here*
Do you know what today was? It was pizza day at work! There was a mandatory meeting at lunch today and that meant they were going to provide lunch. Luckily, I stayed behind to answer the phones so I did not have to go to the meeting. They did order salad though and I went in for a plate full first.
Argh, it was so hard to take only a plate of salad. I am very grateful that they ordered it also, but it was just sitting on the table next to some BBQ Chicken Pizza...and that is my ultimate weakness in pizza. If I had to be in that meeting then I would have checked out the minute I sat down. I would not be listening to anything that was being said. I would have been focusing on the pizza. "Can I have a slice? Look at that gooey cheese. OMG would you smell that pizza! How soon before the meeting is over and I can sneak a slice (or a second slice)"
I survived though.
So I realized that I had not been on the exercise ball at work for a couple of weeks. I kept off it because of my knee for a little bit, and then I was sick last week and balance was not my friend. Time to get back on. I need to work on my core.
Um...I was not thinking about that when I got dressed. I was thinking about the 90 degrees in the forecast so I put on a dress. It's a long dress made with a spandexy material. It's a wonderful dress and I feel nice and cool in it. It is not, however, the ideal outfit for the exercise ball.
How shall I put this nicely....normally I am wearing jeans to work. That means I don't actually feel the texture of the exercise ball under my tush. Well I felt it today. It was weird. It was all squishy. I was acutely aware of my butt all day.
I was having some issues. I kept trying to cross my legs. It's not easy to do. Today would have been a good day for a crash helmet.
Tomorrow is bootcamp so you can believe my butt will be on that ball all day. Say it with me: Must strengthen my core!
Okay kids, it was a rough night at the gym and I am beat. Time for bed. Sweet dreams.
