I am exhaling fire. I want to watch my team on opening day but no, Directtv decides to lose its signal 6 minutes prior to the first pitch. This incident is the thing that broke the camel’s back because I found out today that if I want NBC added, it’d be an additional $75. SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS whilst it is FREE on Comcast. FREE!!!
Venting to calm down so I can work out in a bit.
I totally didn’t abide by my healthy lifestyle today but tomorrow I will. I had tons of leftovers and wanted to eat those before it spoils. Plus driving through traffic hell made me upset so I had some P&B M&M’s and Craig gave me a piece of chocolate, too but I seriously needed it. I am lucky there was no real winter but I can’t imagine when it does rain for days/weeks. Am I just going to stay in San Jose until traffic dissipates or do I drive off a cliff? The 2 lane ordeal is not working out for me.
My energy level has changed dramatically. I used to wake up at 3:15AM to go to the gym. Back in San Jose, I didn’t have to worry about my commute or my regular visits to the gas station. Life was simple. Now I have a hard time waking up before 5AM. Being a single parent w/ a long ass commute sure take its toll on you. I still love going out to do things but I find myself taking naps on Saturdays if and when I’m at home. How sad.
My birthday is coming up and I find myself excited for it for many reasons and it’s the same every year: hockey, baseball, fitness goal, and desserts galore. A few of my friends have asked what I plan to do and I can be honest and say that I won’t know until the playoffs have started. My birthday falls on a Monday which is a regular working day. I should plan to take a mental day off and go to the CA Academy of Sciences; despite it being a cool ass museum but I need to go w/o any children because I actually want to read and fucking learn.
I always miss my kids when I do things alone which is a rarity (rarity that I do things alone). My kids are so used to being out and about that it really is easy to manage them so they hardly stress me out. Tess is the opposite of me but Gavin is exactly like me. On Saturday when I took him to the fitness center at Domain Hotel, he didn’t bother me one bit and actually observed quietly then tried to copy me. I love my kids.
After every storm, there is some light. Somewhere. It’s been almost an hour since I wanted to kick the television screen. It is now time to get started on some core and weights. it’s back and shoulders day. I was told not to do cardio when sick so I might not do Insanity but knowing my stubborn self, I will surely try.
