Quick post since I have to run to work.  I am so sore from kb two days ago!  I feel so sore with every step I take.  Unless there is a yoga class tonight, I think I am skipping the workout today.

i have also got to stop eating so much salt...the restaurant food is loaded with it!

I am a total salt-aholic. Thankfully I don't have high bp but I'm really surprised since I eat so much salt. I have a project to do tonight where I have to make a chart of shipping costs for various items comparing the USPS and private mailing services. It seems odd but it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. 

It is grey and cold here and I am thinking good ole fried chicken for dinner. Mmmm! I can feel my butt getting bigger as I think of gravy and pie. 

Heading to the gym first to do some lifting. ;-)

Cold here today, but dry...I am dreading winter even though I will be having an adventure... I wish I were going this weekend. I decided to go after Thanksgiving and for reasons I won't go into here, I wish I hadn't made that choice...I know that I have the most blessed life, but somedays I think God could make a few more little things go my way...for example, my blackberry, which is work issued, has been acting a little weird this week. The suggestion was to take the battery out so it would reset..I made them send a technician to do this, and I am glad I did because it wouldn't reboot after the battery went in..at least I know I didn't do anything wrong...I Have no real need of it tonight, but it is weird not to have it...of course, as I was feeling sorry for myself walking into the gym, the woman checking in in front of me was one of two regulars in a wheelchair...which makes me kick myself for thinking for one second that my life is hard....I went to Pilates, which was tough on my abs and whatever is going on, but I did it... I never make fried chicken - i don't think my mom knew how either..but it sounds good...I eat so much baked chicken breasts its surprising I don't cluck...

I really need to go to the doc and have my numbers checked, but I am dragging my feet.  :( Boo. I am afraid of what I will find. I know that's stupid, so I will try to make the appointment in the next week.

I would be interested to learn what you find out about shipping costs.  Interesting...

Ironic, what you say...I was feeling sorry for myself today when I saw an older man with a walker who was walking from the parking lot to his doctor's appointment.  He could only take about one step per 2 seconds. I passed him on my way in, did my business, and on my way out, he was still walking in.  I  held the door for him, and he thanked me with a smile on his face.  We exchanged a few words,and he said he was actually grateful that he could even walk.  It made me feel small for feeling badly today.  :(  :)  It's all relative.

I'm here late, but I'm here.  :)  Had one client and then an afternoon of errands.  It was tedious but nice to get all of those things done.  Also did my cardio workout app for 40 minutes while I caught up on The Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls... it's a guilty pleasure absolutely.  I just finished Andy Cohen's book and it was quite good.  Turns out he actually did real journalist stuff before his career with Bravo.  

My goal for the next week is to not turn into a crazy anxious person.  I get like this when hosting an large event. My Thanksgiving table currently has 18 people.  It's a potluck which is less stress on us but I get all weird and want things "just so."  I am going to try not to do that.  I'm having two different guests bring chairs and I would REALLY like the chairs to be here beforehand so I can everything up but I am letting that go.  The chairs will get here (on Thanksgiving) when they get here.  Look at me, letting it go, not thinking about it...

(Still thinking about it but also thinking about not thinking about it.  Personal growth is hard. :P)

"Take two"...on my pc, I kept on spontaneously being taken to ad windows.  Ugh.

anyways, gymrats, I am like you and want everything "done" so that I can relax and have fun too.  Too often, at parties, it seems like I am slaving over everyone, creating a fun, relaxed time for everyone BUT me...it's a LOT of work, so I empathize!

I love my salt. From what I've read, I don't think there's a problem w/ it when you're active and don't have high bp. There also hasn't been peer reviewed studies that it causes higher bp in people w/ high bp but I'd watch it in that case anyway.  But, when my workout clothes dry and show as much salty residue as they do, and my bp is 90/60 and I know I need electrolytes from long runs, I'm going to keep enjoying my salt!

I overthink because I know if I didn't and things didn't work out, I'd think, "I could have planned ahead for that!"  It all goes back to that article you posted on FB. Or, as I once said when I was free climbing, I can't go too high because I have a morbid imagination.
