busy with boring

I've got boring work that's keeping me very busy (stressful level busy, well not for me, but for the guy I'm helping out). Lots of copy and paste, wait for the model to load, then repeat. And since I'm not here tomorrow I'm trying to really push it through to get it done before I go. That's right, leaving for the wedding tomorrow.

Yesterday was a good day. I went for a 2 minute jog with Daisy, then realized it was too cold and I had too much to do, so went home and grabbed the bike, and had a 15 minute bike ride with her instead. Then ate like 3 spoonfuls of soup hubby made, but he had it on the stove for over an hour and it had boiled down to very concentrated, I dumped it when he wasn't looking. Ate a plate of leftover turkey instead and 100 cal pack of special K bites.

Went to class, pushed as hard as I could. Unfortunately the instructor cut the class short so the back workout was abreviated. Too bad. I really wanted to work my back a) for posture, b) because my dress can really show it off. May do some extra back work tonight.

I did do side crunches which normally aren't part of the class. I really hate doing those so I wish I didn't. I think they make my waist thicker, INSTANTLY. I know they do actually. (working a muscle makes it bigger right?). I just couldn't sit there in class and not do it. I'm the one who always does the hardest option, doesn't take the rests etc. The way I workout.

Tonight I've got a wax at 7:00. I still have to pack was going to do a quick workout again. I also was going to back something for the gift opening, I wasn't asked to, but I thought it would be nice. Something quick and easy. Ideas? Recipes? (appetizer maybe, I've got lots of cream cheese, some kind of dip?)

I can hardly believe that this weekend is here already. This was my goal weekend for so long. I don't really think I'm quite at goal (wouldn't feel that great in a bikini right now) but I do feel good about my body as a whole. I look great in my dress, I'm really happy with everywhere except my tummy. But it will come.

Anyway, hope everyone has a good weekend. I probably won't be posting again until Tuesday but I'll be back with pictures!

I can't wait to see your pictures!!!!

I meant to comment on your spanx comment from a while ago!!! I HATE spanx...yes they hold you in, but I agree, they took away my hourglass figure and made me more rectangular and wider (front to back) by the end of the night they were around my knees because I can't leave them up to pee...just too weird!!!

Enjoy your last day of work!!! Even if it's just mindless work!!!

Make a bread bowl spinach/artichoke/creamcheese dip or go buy those tenderflake tart crusts and make mini cheesecakes (totally sinful but friggin good)
