Daily Grind

Wow, so I'm on day 3 of Lvl 2 of the 30 Day Shred, and OMG am I sore. It's definitely the next step up. I'm looking forward to getting home and getting it over with...lol. I'm also way PMSing and everything seems to tick me off...isn't that always the way. Today I did not wake refreshed and ready to face Monday, instead I woke up almost a half hour late and running like a chicken to get off to work...ugh, I just want to make it through the day so I can go back to bed. Meh!

On the positive side, I can totally feel my muscles active and engaged from the weekend's work-outs and I feel that I'm getting stronger, even though the scale is at a standstill. I know I know...stop consorting the scale, especially when training and building muscle (+ PMS doesn't help), but it's SUCH an addiction. I guess it could be worse, there are worse addictions...like my addiction to fast food...this one's been a constant battle and I'm afraid it will always be that way.

What else...oh, I'm getting a new roommate. He moves in at the end of July I believe. This will be such a big help with the bills...Money is tight and everyone I know is feeling it. It will be nice to be able to breathe a little in the finance area of my life...but only a little. My cousin who also lives with me has also been offered a new job making almost twice what he is currently making, so that too will be a big help for us. Things are looking up, but let's not jinx it just yet...a piano may fall on my head or something.

Alright, back to the grind. Have a great day and week.

No pianos on the head, Bex! None of that allowed, especially so close to the birthday. :-)

We are SO cosmically linked...I swear, my TOM must be waiting around for yours to start, maybe that's why it's so late (again)? Anyway, I feel your pain...wish I could claim I felt the pain from the workout but mine is all PMS and nebulous back pain from unknown sources.

Hope TOM gets out of the way with record speed and you're feeling great again. MWAH!
