hello lover

i can't wait for the sex and the city movie. next topic!

last night i tried out the condo gym. it's not great, but not that bad. i hate how all the weight machines are just one super giant weight machine - it feels very contained. also, not the same quality as all of the individual machines at my old gym. i ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes as well. there are two big flat screen TVs - one positioned in front of the bikes, and one in front of the elliptical machines. in front of the treadmills there is... a big white wall. actually it's a window but the blinds were pulled down. not the most exciting but still better than nothing. i think these machines are telling me i'm burning more calories than i'm actually burning - because i can't enter my weight at the beginning of the workout. i'll have to judge my workouts by time instead of calories burned.

today is the first of many holiday parties. it's my book club and this month we read "atonement" by ian mcewan. it is now a movie out in theatres, which i haven't seen yet but plan to eventually. the book is quite nice so i would recommend it.

tomorrow there it is the "first annual" christmas party in my condo, so i'm going to that and hope to meet some new peeps. yes, i said peeps - friends, not easter peeps if you are confused. friday is my bf's staff party - i was thinking about making some chocolate bark with blueberry bite that i saw in the paper yesterday. i love blueberries. saturday my couch is being delivered and it's also my one-yearaversary. swoon! in addition to all of that, my best friend who has been living in australia for the past year is coming home this week and i'm going to visit her on sunday. ho ho holy moly busy week!

today i'm eating:

1 slice of bodywise bread
1 clementine
pc blue menu cinnamon and spice oatmeal with blueberries
carrot slices
chef boyardee macaroni and cheese
2 slices of bodywise bread
1 clementine

and for dinner - i'm thinking a big salad with chicken. that way maybe i'll order dessert at bookclub.

I guess any gym is better than no gym :). Thanks for the tip about the book...I'm gathering up lots of reading material to take home with me for the holidays. I might just go crazy if I don't! :P

Yikes you are one busy woman!

Congrats on moving into your new place! Nothing like owning soemthing of your own. We just bought our first house in July and I LOVE it.

Enjoy your Holiday parties and try to make good choices! Can't wait to hear all about them!

My friends and I say peeps too! Oh I love that word.

That sucks about the treadmill but at least it is just downstairs!

I totally want to read Atonement - keep meaning too!
