What I did this week: March 24-March 30

I got my replacement Jawbone UP -- they have wonderful customer service.  I am glad to be counting steps again. It showed up on Tuesday.

The early part of the week was rough. My husband had a job interview for a job he had been thinking and talking about all year. He didn't get it, and the way he didn't get it was pretty insulting. He decided that he was probably better off after all but it was still a rough ride for me for the first few days.

We decided that we need to start investing more of our mental energy outside of work, as work has been particularly frustrating and unfulfilling for both of us lately. We have both felt a little underappreciated. We both work very hard, and will continue to, but we are not going to continue to take on as many extra projects because they have not seemed to get us anywhere.  We're both going to look for ways to have more fun together.

Workouts for the week:

Monday: No workout in the morning, walked with my husband in the afternoon.
Tuesday: Spin class was terrific -- the instructor had a special CD she made of all covers, and we had to guess the original artist and the artist on her CD. I was in a rough mood and having something like this to distract me while working out was great. Went for a walk with my husband in the afternoon.
Wednesday: Walked in the park.
Thursday: Ran 4 10-minute intervals, with 1-minute walks in between and 5 minutes walking warmup and cool down.
Friday: Ran 20 minutes with 5 minutes warmup and cool down.
Saturday: Pilates Circuit class
Sunday: Master's swim class.


  1. I am waiting for a new pedometer right now myself. I lost mine on Monday. Uggg. Maybe I should have gone for something like that. It doesn't look like you could lose that.

  2. That sucks!! Just because something is a blessing in disguise doesn't mean it doesn't sting when it happens, sorry he had to go through that!
