I didn’t think there was a downside to more daylight hours, but I’ve found one: too many hours to get things done! I’ve been going full-speed all week!
The rest of the week should be smoother though. My Nashville trip scheduled for today and tomorrow was postponed, and my Friday assignment was moved to next Tuesday. I wrapped up a client project today, barring any quickie last-minute changes tomorrow, so now my daytime schedule is clear for the rest of the week. Hooray! Now I can focus on my largely-ignored chore chart. I’ll have to dust it off first.
Nutrition and exercise have been mostly on track for the week, despite spending SIX HOURS working in the land of “Burgers and Fries” yesterday:
TippyToe Points (value=$0) if you guess where I spent my day.
This particular location only opened on Monday, so the crowd was crazy big. Between 11:30 and 5:30 (or so), there wasn’t a single moment when they weren’t preparing orders. I give the crew props: they were sweating buckets and had to be exhausted but they were smiling and enthusiastic all day. After three hours, I was ready to sit down for a day or two.
Positive notes: I remained perky all day, and I didn’t dive into an overstuffed bag of fries, despite being offered a free meal by the manager. For this, I rewarded myself a new tune for my playlist, Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’. It played over the loudspeaker during my gig, and I think everyone in the restaurant was singing along. Awesome moment, awesome song.
Needless to say, after all that time standing, there was no ‘two’ in the two-a-day workouts. Fortunately, I completed a 30-minute strength training session yesterday morning, so at least I accomplished the minimum!
Today was an hour walking and tomorrow I’ll double up again. I have to, because tomorrow night is the annual Neighborhood Dessert Social! I can’t believe a year has passed already–I still haven’t recovered from last year’s Red Velvet Massacre. In fact, I thought about taking this dish to this year’s event:
But I decided to play nice. Since I thought I wasn’t going to be back in town until the afternoon, I had planned to take something super easy, either Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip (from Chef-in-Training) or Chocolate Hummus (from Cupcake Project) with vanilla wafers and graham crackers. Now that I have time, I might make both. They’re both new-to-me recipes, so it would be nice to have a back-up in case one of them is awful. If both are awful, there’s always Kroger. ::Meow::
Oh, and the meow reminded me, my walk today was interrupted by this sidewalk obstruction:
This was funny, because I had just completed some research on sidewalk obstruction/liability for an article I’m writing (and probably, a future blog post). I stopped to inform ObstructoCat that he was a potential hazard, and I think he’s learned his lesson. I left him pondering the seriousness of the situation.
Hmm, I think I might have had more success if I hadn’t issued my warnings while rubbing his belly.
And now, I’m going to go ponder the back of my eyelids. I hope you’re having a fantastic week!
