I have just had a fantabulous day.

I have been waffling about trying to run sprints on the treadmill at the YMCA for MONTHS.  Not so much that I was afraid of running; more like I was afraid of falling off the treadmill!  The thought of it just seemed awkward.  But Jillian keeps saying it is one of the best cardio to lose weight, so today, I bit the bullet and gave it a whirl.  I ran three 30 second sprints and three 45 second sprints.  Not exactly a 5k, but man, was I excited!  I didn't fall off the treadmill and it didn't kill me!  I walked, then sprinted for a mile and this was after 30 minutes of cross training on the elliptical and 100 crunches on the stability ball. 

I don't know why I ever let myself get away from workouts because I feel crazy good after I do them!  Not to mention that with each new thing I attempt, not only does it keep my body guessing, but it builds my own confidence.  Would still love to attempt a 5k one day, and today was a small start towards that.  Small, but still a start!

Then my early birthday gift arrived, which was my little Acer Netbook, all pretty in pink.  The Brit got it for me early so I could have a computer for the three weeks we are in England.  When I was in England last month, I kept having these crazy urges to write.  It may be the different way of life or the different sights and sounds, but several times I was just itching for a computer to peck away at, but either it was not an appropriate time or The Brit was using his laptop.  Writing is still a very fragile thing for me; thoughts can go quickly, which is why I generally carry notebook and paper in my bag, but I failed at that on this last trip too.  So anyway, very exciting.

Then I have finished the Windows Movie Maker presentation for our two grads at church.  Found a song I liked and all, so all I need to do is to have The Brit do a fade out on the music as I can't remember how to do it, and then burn it onto three disks; one for the church and one for each graduate.

I adore productive days!  And now I am finished blogging so I can chill the rest of the night and play with my new toy. 

Did anyone else have a productive hump day?

  1. Hi Kim,WOW, are you a busy person or what ....Yes, everyday seems busy right now because my 22 year old daughter is moving into her own place this weekend. Well, she does have a roomate but still she is paying her share of the place, utilities and so on.Yippeee...Yes, it is kind of bittersweet but Annie is 22 and very ready to move. She is extremely responsibile and has a good job as a teacher. So the coming weekend will be filled with all things moving.
    Kim, will you be blogging in England? I do hope so ...Your blog and my friend's (the one fighting leukemia - calledd Oopps it's not a bacterial infection afterall!!) are the first things I read when I get to work. That and a nice cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee always gets my day off good. Anyway, have a good day..
