Am I a loser if I spend Friday night at the gym and then doing some homework? No, because technically nothing says social butterfly quite like sweating on the elliptical and watching "What Not To Wear" while completing my professional and personal goal worksheet for seminar class. And eating popcorn for dinner. I also tried studying for my big comprehensive exam on 9/27 but fell asleep by 9 PM with the book on my head. When I woke up around 11:30 to move, I realized that osmosis doesn't work with reading material.
I caught the bouquet at the wedding last night. Pictures to follow. I also ate very reasonably and drank lots of vino. But I was good all day. When I came home, drunk, I cried/yelled to my boyfriend about wanting to eat cheese fries or have him take me to Denny's. I ended up passing out in my own drool while he watched the History Channel.
Today, I spent my only day off from life at the library working with my partner on an Autism project. Then I grabbed a slice of pizza with my friend Sally and her baby daughter before heading to the gym.
Get this....at the gym, I tried my first stint at interval training. (TA are you proud!?!?!) I wouldn't say it was high intensity or anything like that. I walked for 10 mins at 3.0 mph. Then I alternated between jogging at 5.0 for 2 minutes and back down to 3.0 mph for 1 minute. I did the 5.0/3.0 thing for 20 minutes. Overall, half an hour of work. I feel nice and relaxed and ready to sit here and write a paper for Tuesday night and study some more.
