let the christmas countdown begin!

my posting has been a little sparse lately. on friday it was a huge snow storm so i didn't go to work. i have to drive for 40(ish) minutes so it just wasn't worth it because a) it would have taken much longer and b) the chance of getting into an accident and dying an untimely death are somewhat high. and i don't have snow tires and wouldn't want to hurt anyone.

instead i went to my boyfriend's school for his christmas concert. cute!

i didn't weigh in on friday because i forgot. really! but it's probably a good idea. my clothes fit and nothing is really out of control, but i don't want any bad number (if it so exists) ruining my holiday enjoyment.

i have been doing really well in the exercise department. on friday i walked on the treadmill for four miles, on saturday i ran 5k on the treadmill (30 minutes without stopping), on sunday i went for a 40 minute swim, and this morning a 30 minute swim. i might do some more treadmill walking tonight depending on how tired i am after a long waking-up-early working monday. i am meeting a girlfriend at swiss chalet tonight for our annual festive special hooplah, so i should allow for some extra calories.

that's about it. oh, and i didn't get the other job either. BOOOOOOOOO! Hissssssssss! i guess it wasn't meant to be. :(

i have to work tomorrow too (with ma mere) but not wednesday or thursday (obviously). i am looking forward to some good old fashioned family time. by that i mean too much booze and family squabbles. i kid i kid. ;)

Wow - you've been doing amazing in the exercise department! Nice! Still SO jealous that you can do a 5k in 30 minutes. :( That would take me almost an hour. Sigh.

I'm so sorry to hear about the job. :( But yes, wasn't meant to be. Do you have any other interviews coming up?

haha Nothing says happy holidays like family squabbles and binge drinking - love it.

*laughs* you were obviously talking about Christmas Eve with my family right??? I am descended from Newfies...that should say it all ;p we are nothing without booze and a few squabbles!!!

I am so sorry to hear about the job, but you are right...some things aren't meant to be...I am sure you will get something wonderful and fabulous soon!!!

Have fun with your friend!!

Merry Christmas!

I've started to add swimming into my work outs and I tell you, its damn hard work! Everytime I'm in the pool, I think of you and get inspired to keep on going, thanks for that.
