I found out last week that I won a raffle from one of my vendors - that was exciting. I won a high heeled shoe tape dispenser in pink. Not quite my style but still cool to know I won something. The sales rep came into the office on Monday to drop it off and we had an impromptu meeting.
For the record - he is one of my favorite sales reps to work with. So meetings with him are always fun. I didn't keep the dispenser, since I'd recently bought one for my desk but instead gave to a coworkers daughter. It apparently made her day - which I was very happy to hear.
Tuesday was my cousin's birthday. Now she and I are best friends too, so I wanted to get her something this year. I had a box of chocolate covered strawberries and apples, from Edible Arrangements, delivered to her. Wednesday, I got a message, all in caps, about how much she loved them. That totally made my day. I love it when she gets excited over things. We are both the same way - big giggle-y squee-ing kids when we are happy and excited. It's goofy but that's us.
Now onto the workout stuff.
More Angry Birds this week and I became super excited about it. I went to do the 40 push-ups and could feel the difference. The push-ups were easier this week, still took too many sets than my goal but I improved. At the moment, my push-ups are knee push-ups. My goal is to be comfortable going back to full body. I hurt my back a few years ago and full body push-ups used to hurt because of it. My back is in better condition (though my pregnancy didn't help), so I'm working back up to that point.
Ryan and I both showed improvements in all areas. Though now I'm looking at creating a new program. The Angry Birds Workout is fun and kind of got me back to feeling comfortable in what I was doing. The feeling of comfort makes me want to branch out some more. (Comfort in this case does not mean easy - just familiar)
Using the excel sheet that ABW came with, I'm going to modify it a bit to adapt different exercises and provide options for swapping some in and out. I'm geeking out a little, kind of like "ooo, maybe I can do X!"
Also fun to note - the squats didn't murder my thighs day after.
On the work side of things, work has been a little dull, making the days long.
However, at home everything is going really well.
Life is fun like that.
