Took the Plunge
Today I went from this…
with a little of this in between…
I’ve been trying out the Y with a free trial this past week and I finally took the plunge today and got a membership. The pool has been so refreshing for actual exercise and my trial would run out tomorrow. It was now or never. I used today as my trial run to see if I could be a lunch time exerciser. I kind of make my own hours and Hunni can cover the office if I’m late but I wanted to be able to make the most of the lap time at lunch time.
So I packed my bag and headed out. The pool was a bit crowded but it pushed me to work harder. And I was back to the office with time to spare. Of course I forgot a few things in my first attempt. Like make-up to reapply (but no one came to the office so it was okay), deodorant (so I ran up to the apartment so I wouldn’t stink up my office with more than chlorine), and a real brush (I managed with a pick from my old swimming days). So I have a few kinks to work out in my lunch time routine.
But one thing that did work out was LUNCH!!! I have to eat lunch….I’m not one of those girls who can survive on snacks from my desk until the office closes. So Hunni was nice enough to make me an old school sandwich with a new school twist.
Hunni was a little stingy with the insides at first so I added a bit more. I was Hangry after my laps. I also “beefed” up lunch with a peach, some hummus and English Cucumber slices.
I grabbed my plate and went back to the office and my lengthy to-do list whose butt I was kicking for the rest of the afternoon.
I was a list checking machine today and I think a little dip in the pool just gave me extra jolt of energy. I’m looking forward to more dips like tomorrow. And while I hit the pool Peanut gives me this look because she misses my lunch time cuddle.
Leo could care less since he hides under the table during lunch. Love you too puppers 🙂
Do you workout mid-day?
