Friday Fun! (Yeah, I’m Kind of All Over the Place Today)

November 4, 2011 4 comments

Hello my lovely readers!  I am sitting here with sore ribs from my work-out last night.  Do not ask what happened.  I have no idea.  I think I might have to blame the Roman Chair though.

The deadline for Tova Gallagher 2 is fast approaching.  Like, I’m starting to get a little panicky about it.  It’s a Thanksgiving story, so I absolutely need to finish it like yesterday.  Then I need to design the cover.  *breathes*  Finishing the draft is my major serious for REALZ goal for this weekend.  I refuse to let ya’ll down!

I am currently obsessed with the admittedly horrible but still frighteningly addictive “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO.  It’s my favorite post-workout song for this section, “Girl look at that body. Ah. Girl look at that body. Ah. Girl look at that body. I work out!”  Ridiculous, I know, but it matches my after workout celebratory spirit so HAH.

This weekend I will be:

  • Writing Tova 2
  • Yoga-ing it up
  • Training with my trainer
  • Getting smoothies from the new smoothie place near me
  • Watching nerdy shit with my friend K
  • Making something in my crockpot
  • Writing Tova 2

Look, I made bookends! Happy weekends all!

Friday Fun! (The Gym and Mount Auburn Cemetery)

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope your weeks went well and that you are enjoying this summer weather.  You all now know that a significant portion of my time nowadays is being taken up with my newly budding writing career, and of course I’m loving it!  It’s so nice to be out of school and doing what I enjoy.

Of course, being me, I’m not just reading and writing in my spare time.  I’m still consistently going to the gym.  My new trainer and I (my old one no longer works at that gym) are starting to understand each other and tailor a routine to fit my needs.  It’s interesting to see the differences between her and my old one, and I like that she’s focused on my cardiovascular health and core strength.  We did my measurements this week, and I’m proud to report that since the beginning of June I’ve lost another 2 inches around my waist.  Yay!  See, I don’t just yak about Americans and our health, I am trying my best to improve my own as well. 😉

Last weekend I visited the historic Mount Auburn cemetery for the first time.  Can I just say, it is freaking huge and very inspirational for horror stories.  It basically is a nice, hilly hike right smack in the middle of urban development.  I absolutely loved it.  There’s no way I saw anywhere near everything there is to see there.  I mean, we’re talking there were randomly hidden ponds and bridges and monuments and……I could go on and on about it.  It’s a truly amazing free gem right in the middle of the city.

Tonight I’ll be going to a bonfire at a friend’s house.  I’m excited for that! I love fire.  The rest of my weekend will consist of going to see some improv, working out, and a meeting of progressives in my neighborhood.  I hope you all have lovely weekends!  Any good plans?
