I am intimidated by gyms, hate walking outside because of the weather and dog poop and people watching you, and I want minimal instruction. I also dont want to feel dead at the end of a workout or pull muscles I didnt know I had. So I have found the holy grail of workout tapes for me. I am obsessed with Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds videos. Seriously, it has changed my life. I should be on the testimonials. I feel like putting one foot in front of the other has cured just about every ailment ever. I feel more energy, less depressed at any time, and totally toned in a matter of weeks. It makes your metabolism work harder all day long and I only do 30 minutes a day 3 times a week. All you do is walk in front of your T.V. (and in my case a high powered fan) and follow her cute little Italian butt with, like 3 easy moves like walk, kick, side step. I may be in swimwear next summer. It doesnt cure my problem of being really white or having backne though...mep.
In other news, I am in school and I heart online classes. I am done with one class, which I started two weeks ago and on my way to finshing two others early. I have an actual in-school class that is going good as well. I don't know the Microsoft Office programs well enough, so I'm learning Access databases and Excel spreadsheets and stuff working towards my certificate in Office Technician. Its gonna be supersweet..I havent really great goals to work towards in a while because I just wanted to work my way towards living a normal and somewhat healthy life and now that I've been doing so-everything falls into place.
Work is good, although the furlough days and subsequent pay cuts are getting wickity-wack. Yes, I just said wickity-wack. My boss is kind of insane and annoying...heres hoping she'll retire soon. Lord knows shes old enough to. At least we got an infusion of rather hot, young officers, which is rare in these parts. Were the 'retirement community office' for officers.
And, since I have a wonderful, hilarious, loving, boyfriend its a good thing they are all married with children and I can just enjoy eye candy occassionally. Hopefully my years-in-the making divorce will finally go through so I can do it right this time.
Reno was awesome this year, thanks to it being not-so hot August Nights and extra family and friends coming up to our annual shindig. Never stay at the Peppermill-theyve screwed us 2 years in a row and I'm telling everyone!!! I do have to say working for the state is not all bad since I officially start my four day weekend...Now. :)
