Back in the Saddle...well on the exercise ball

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.
