One week to go


One week to go, two-thirds of the way there, almost done.  These are all things I am thinking today, I am tired today, not so tired that I am not going to keep doing this, but definitely tired.

Boot camp this morning was early and a tough workout, 60-minutes of any activity other than sleeping at 5:30 am is not easy.  It was good though, exciting, certainly much better than trudging to the gym to lift weights on my own or to get on the elliptical.  There is just something about being told what to do and sweating at the same time ;).

Two new habits I have formed out of all of this are getting my workout clothes ready the night before and putting my work outfit together as soon as I get home from the gym or from my run.  Those little steps of preparedness leave me far less frazzled in the morning and make the routine of getting ready much easier.

Something you may not know about me is that I am not very organized, so putting clothes out the night before is a big deal for me.  Normally I would be cursing about not being able to find a shoe, or a shirt, or something 5-minutes before I walk out the door, getting ready beforehand relieves me of worrying that this will happen.

“Organization is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it’s not all mixed up.”  ― A.A. Milne

Here’s to being less mixed up.

Until tomorrow…

A nice blouse and a pair of sweatpants

I had a first in my life today.  Maybe it is my age or maybe I am just a tad behind the times, but today I had my first video interview.  Skype like system where we spoke to each other through the computer, like a phone interview only I had to be at least half-dressed and where makeup.

Getting ready for the interview – comb my hair, put on my makeup, a necklace.  Then I had to decide what to wear.  How about a nice blouse and my sweatpants?  I came downstairs to my office to finish preparing; my husband was in the kitchen and told me he was disappointed I did not have on my slippers, I did not have shoes on either, he suggested I would have completed the outfit with the slippers.  The interview went well and thankfully he never asked me to stand for any reason.

On a totally different topic I went to see Mumford and Sons in concert tonight and they were amazing!  It was an outside concert on the waterfront and the weather and the music were lovely.
