Time To Move On!!!

And NO, I'm not leaving. I plan to be here for a long time yet. Just hopefully a little smaller! I'm referring to our Challenges. We've worked hard in January, and it's time for February. New challenges, new roadblocks, new determination to continue. I actually started the really profound post over on the challenge board, but it died halfway through. Not Bloggers fault (for once!) but all my own. My brain decided to revolt halfway through and I was stuck trying not to sound TOO stupid finishing it. I don't think I did incredibly well, but that's not important.

And now, on to life!

Like Jeannie, I had gym woes this week. I was supposed to start Water Aerobics Tuesday night. I was really excited about it to. But between being out late shopping, trouble sleeping, AND an alarm clock not going off Tuesday morning I didn't get my stuff together. SOO, as I ran (well, walked quickly. I don't run) to work, I planned to stop and grab all that on my way to the bank at lunch. So, I left for lunch late in hopes of having a better time getting everything done. Signing up for the Biggest Winner program took longer than I expected, the bank took longer than expected (1 person working over the lunch hour, very long wait) and I didn't have time to get by the apartment.
I was determined to get a workout in even if it wasn't water aerobics. As I was walking to the locker room Ms. Susan, one of the ladies I know with rec sports, asked if I was going. I told her what happened and she told me that there were several women in the fac/staff locker room getting ready to go. So, I walk in and the first person I see is Ms. Mary, THE sweetest lady on our campus. She asked if I was going, and I told her. She asked if I had any shorts to wear! I smiled, pulled up my long skirt and said "I have a petti-slip! Does that count?" She laughed at me.
So, since I couldn't do water aerobics I spend about 20 minutes on a bike with my textbook instead. It wasn't optimal, but it worked. I'm going to TRY to make it to the lunch meeting for Biggest Winner tomorrow (assuming I can get someone to cover my job) and then do water aerobics. If nothing else I will still get my swimsuit to the gym for next week.

To top it all off, I couldn't get my damn locker opened. But the fac/staff locker room has a locked door so I just left everything out on the bench. It was fine. I might be doing that during my short ride tonight since I forget the card with my locker combination on it again. I'm sure I just forgot the combination since I only got the locker the other day.

Well, I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I think I managed to stop by all my blogs today (and have for several days in a row!) and left comments. So, everybody get some good sleep tonight and try to be energetic about the last half of the week!

Lots of hassles with gym, but you managed to put in 20 min. on the bike. Your determination is bound to pay off. You posts reminds me that we're starting a new month. I need to start setting specific goals for myself for the month. Thanks for the reminder.

Sorry about the gym woes, but I am glad that you didn't get discouraged. I sense that you are VERY focused through your posts. Great Job!!!

I thought about joining water aerobics and I still may join. I want to see how my week finishes up first.

You still got to workout so you should be proud!

Am sure you will shine in February!
