So driving to work this morning I hear on the radio about how some state workers are going to be out protesting the movie "The Expendables" because Arnold is in it, and they are upset at his proposal of furloughs. Oh boo freaking hoo
Really now. You are upset at furloughs? I am so sick at the sense of entitlement people seem to have nowadays. I had to take a 10% pay cut over a year ago, it was across the board at our company. Has the public sector taken a pay cut? No, in fat they have received raises. We have a 12% unemployment rate, I am sure if you asked those out of work if they would be happy to get a job that paid them well, but they had to take an unpaid vacation day once a month they would be thrilled.
Why is it the public sector thinks they can demand anything? Oh that's right, because they are the public sector. I am so sick of the unions, and sick of those people who feel they can have the moon and never give anything back.
Am I seriously one of the only ones out there who is sick of this?
So apparently this weekend, I am being kidnapped to go to the Surfrider foundation's beach clean up. I am getting up early on a Saturday for what now? The carrot sis is dangling is going over to Kristen's after to hang out and drink. Ok, I am tempted as Kristen is soooo adorable and I lurves her muchly, but come on, out in the sun?
Sure they are trying to convince me the sun is never out at the beach first thing in the morning, but I know better. I know it will be lurking on purpose just to burst out of the clouds and get me.
I like my fair skin, I prefer not looking older then I am, so I tend to hide from the sun..and besides, I can get migraines easier in the sun. =( We will see, I might just do the whole "I'll meet you there at Kristen's."
It's currently 7:30 am, and I have been up for almost 4 hours now. I need a nap. This 3:45 am gym stuff is going to be the death of me. I keep saying that but I keep waking up, imagine that. 44 days until the Susan G Komen 5k Breast Cancer Walk/Run. I will survive, and then I have another in October and finally one in November. I am already registered. Yay me.
Alright enough slacking, I need to get back to work, someone needs to bring me some purple straw goodness, but OF COURSE Missy called in sick today *Grumbles*
Ugh morning comes so soon when you have to be up for the gym! I could have sworn I went to bed minutes before I had to wake up.
Currently sitting here with a cup of coffee thinking about getting up to go to work, but I would rather go back to bed. ^_^
Good news for me, the working out is getting easier. Did a mile pretty quickly this morning, which is nice. I hope to get into amazing shape before January. Another visit from David and I cannot wait! I am stealing his passport this time, or getting him drunk enough to marry me in Vegas hahaha. =D
Bleh enough for now one of these days I might actually put something here that is important/entertaining.
Ok so up at 3:45 am for the gym, did my usual treadmill jaunt. It seems to be getting easier, or maybe I am just fooling myself. Granted this whole week I have been lazy, last time I went to the gym was last weekend, but I had my excuses. Women excuses, plus I was sick yesterday.
So I am feeling a bit worn down right now, it is what 10 hours since I got up? Something of that nature.
Lunch was healthy...or so I tell myself. Had a great time with sis, Isaac, and Steve. Over ate on sushi and needed a little pick me up on the way back to the office, so of course that is where the purple straw comes into play.
Currently waiting for Miss to get up and get ready for the gym...new shoes time to break them in. She picked them out which means they have purple on them...the ones I wanted fit weird on my instep so bleh.
I really have nothing else to post at this moment, perhaps more later.
Ok so it is really not day two, but it is day two in my "training". Slight change of plans, we are no longer doing the Avon walk...too intensive for me. So the decision was made to do the Susan G Komen 5k Walk/Run. It's the same cause, breast cancer, just a different group.
Turns out there are a few coming up, so I am going to the next 3 in the area. Of course the one in October is in Temecula, which yes you guessed, means after the race we are going wine tasting. =p
Matt and Jason in SD decided we all need to do the Del Mar mud run....I AM SO UP FOR IT. As Matt says, we will spend more time in the mud on our asses then actually running/jogging/walking. I think we would have way too much and laugh most of the time...we will see.
Anyway, this is it for now.
This is for you Aims and all women everywhere, including myself ^_^
Sept 11 - 12 in Santa Barbara, California is the Avon Breast Cancer walk - In it to end it. I decided to honour a co-worker who is in remission for breast cancer and walk in the event. Granted I should do it because I am female and it is a good cause for everyone, but she inspired me.
Little did I know when I told myself and sis I would do it, it was over 33 miles. Now I do not have to do all of it, seeing as I am way lazy, but as much as I can do to honour her is enough for me.
It has now turned into a huge event. Sis, mom, Aims, Kristen, and numerous other friends have indicated they wish to join.
Now, day one....get back into "shape'". I am not in bad shape, I am just lazy so walking all that distance is 0_o to me. But today begins the first day of "training". I am currently sitting here at 5 am, with a huge bottle of water, unwinding after my treadmill jaunt at the gym. Thank God my gym is open 24 hours a day. Easier to go work out when I want to.
Why am I typing this? So I can keep track of my thoughts. I do not care if anyone reads this, sees it, or cares. I am just keeping this for myself mainly.
Ooo never mind, I figured out how to close it. *Posts*
