I worked until 6:45pm last night, drove home to get a jacket, and was going to head over to The Shed for dinner. My plan was to leave the house around 8:00pm, but when that time rolled around I wasn’t really all that hungry and decided going out to spend money on food and drink when I really didn’t need to was silly. Sometime around 8:30pm I made two small gringo quesadillas (taco shells with some cheese between them, heated in a pan) for dinner. I think I passed out on my bed well before 10:00pm.
Today’s Personal Project
Do something “blogworthy” today. 🙂
Today’s Daily Challenge
Lie on your side, raise your upper body and top leg, repeat three times, and switch sides.
This challenge works muscles all over your body! You should feel a stretch in your arms, legs, hips, abdominals (the muscles above your belly), and obliques (side abdominals). Strong abdominal muscles in particular are an important part of a strong core, which helps you with everyday activities and contributes to a healthy back.
I’ll add this to my stretching routine if I make it to the gym tonight.
Is Mother Nature Playing An Extended April Fool’s Joke?
It’s April 4th and I was sleeping under a blanket and comforter, and even had to turn the heat on briefly to knock the chill out of the air.
Is this not Atlanta Georgia?
ITP Flickr Pic
Still no new photos. DANGEN!
One of this weekend’s many missions is to stock my photo library with decent shots.
Tonight? Workout Perhaps?
Because of the chill and the pain in my body from three mornings of workouts I decided to skip getting up early and heading to the gym.
Trying to be a proactive workout person (and to some degree wanting to start a new audiobook) I have packed a bag and hope to make it to LA Fitness tonight. Of course today’s weather may chase everyone indoors tonight which won’t make this task any easier…
