Happy New Year!

What? I know we’re already 4 days into 2014. But I really have a good excuse for not blogging sooner. I’ve been sick.

Something hit me like a brick. It started on Monday night (the 30th) and by New Years Eve I was a complete mess. We ordered pizza and watched a movie (I know, such party animals) but I just wasn’t feeling it. The highlight of the evening was when a friend of the hubby’s stopped over to pick up his laptop and I got to play with his son. Such a cutie (the cats were not amused). I spent the first day of 2014 on the couch sleeping off and on with the cats. Not the way I had planned on starting out the new year, but there wasn’t much I could do about it.

I dragged myself into work on Thursday because I had so much to get done. With being off the week before and it being the end of the month/year billing, I needed to make sure I got everything in on time. I was just so miserable. I know I’m sick when I don’t want coffee. I drank a lot of tea over the past few days.

I stayed home yesterday to try and get better. I’m happy to say that by around 4pm I started to feel like myself again and today I was finally about to get in my first workout of 2014. Again, not the way I had planned on starting off January, but I couldn’t do much about that.

I managed some cardio at home on the treadmill (I wasn’t going outside. It’s like 5 degrees right now) but tomorrow I plan on making it to the gym. I promised myself 2014 would be better and I want to include gym time in there.

So, like I said, Happy New Year!

What did you do for New Years Eve?

We’re not in Kansas anymore

We had a tornado hit Connecticut on Wednesday. A tornado. In Connecticut. Pretty crazy, right? I was sitting around waiting for the flying monkey’s and the munchkins to show up, but no such luck. We thought it hit our street, but it turned out to be a “micro burst”, whatever that might be. It knocked down trees and closed my road. That was no joke. The tornado actually went through the backyard of some friends of ours. Luckily they are okay and only lost a few trees.

Something strange has come over me the past couple of nights. I’ve worked out after work. I know, right? I got home Thursday hit the treadmill for 30 minutes and weights after. Same with last night. I don’t even know who I am anymore. This morning I just did 70 minutes of cardio because my arms are sore from my weights.

My big weekend plans are to get curtains for the bedroom. Right now when the sun starts to come up it comes right into the room and wakes up. We start thinking its 10am and we’re late to work. It’s really 6am and we’re not late. And that is just not okay. When you get up before your alarm…not what either of us enjoy.

Do you get tornadoes where you live?

Your weekend plans?
