A day in my life: Friday November 5 2009

Exercise:
Thursday it rained all morning so I was getting worried: would it ever stop raining. I kept checking the rain radar which is very accurate and it should be dry at 2.15 pm. And it did so I went outside at that time and kept it dry the entire run. I did 6K and set my first PR on this distance: 44 minutes exact.

That’s 2.42 faster than the run on Sunday but I did walk on that one.

Today no exercise, at first I planned to go to the gym after work but I had to go to the vet before 5 pm to get food for Roussy. And I realized that I’ve planned workouts from tomorrow up till Wednesday so that’s 5 days in a row (want to bet if I do all 5 days since you are getting to know me a little bit better now? 😆 )

What’s for dinner:
Yesterday we had a piece of pork meat, baked potatoes with a salad.

Tonight I made noodles with beef and pak-choi cabbage. Delicious!

Thoughts:
Thanks for your condolences for my uncle. Tomorrow night my mom and I are going to offer our condolances. We eat at her place first since it is 5 minutes from her house.

Concerning my colleague, my manager won’t be in till Wednesday so I’ll have to do this one on my own. As soon as she starts to talk negative Tuesday I will say something about it, that it’s bothering me and that she has to talk to her manager about this and not to me.

We have an easy weekend, no appointments so I’m really looking forward to it. It seems ages ago since I cross-stitched so I want to do that on Sunday.

R. came home tonight and told me he has to go to France for his work from Monday till Wednesday so I’ll be home alone the first part of the week. He comes home late Wednesday night and I’m having a dinner date with one of my best friends Thursday night so I’m going to see/talk to him late Thursday evening.

Itunes shuffle playing right now:
Bruce Springsteen – The Promised land (one of my favourites of him, did you notice already I’m a fan 😆 )

I’ve done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning and go to work each day
But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode
Explode and tear this whole town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Find somebody itching for something to start

The dogs on Main Street howl
’cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister I ain’t a boy, no I’m a man
And I believe in a promised land

Positive today:
Had a great day at work: did a lot and had a nice lunch date

    My daughters have both been, Heinz paid for them – my eldest came for 10 days and my youngest for 3 months.
