I'm teaching sports conditioning this morning and hope to get a good workout. I did the UrbanFit class yesterday and was, again, underwhelmed. It's not quite lifting, it's not quite anything much.  We did some squats, long rests, some chest presses, long rest, then a 12 minute long segment of overheat squats, side obliques and windmill. It was tiring on the shoulders but nothing else.  I don't get that people who like crossfit do it but maybe they go heavier. I just hate lifting.  I told the instructor at the end that I really don't care to build more strength at this point. I can do 30+ militarypush ups, a few unassisted pull ups. I don't care to be able to do more. Bah hum bug to all the stuff I preach!

I just realized how fast the month is going and I leave next Friday for my ski week at Killington.  I'm overwhelmed, honestly, by how much I have to do to get ready for Christmas!

I hate when my clients show up sick. Really, we have a liberal cancellation policy, use it.  I had one client (the one who recently dropped) who told me I should get a flu shot to protect my clients but she ALWAYS comes when she's sick. Thanks.

Yeah, boundaries are good.  If you don't start, you'll never have them.

"Itunes is gaining weight."  Now that is my favorite mis-read in a LONG time.  Thank you voice recognition software!  

Boundaries are a lot of work and I think that's why a lot of people don't set them.  But it's a matter of doing a little work now to save yourself a lot of work later.

LOL as much as Itunes makes it to the gym, you have to wonder how on earth it is gaining weight. ;-)

Ugh, boundaries.  Dh is firer lay protective of his son...abnormally so, probably due to his attachment issues s around being adopted.  Is et the boundary With dss.  When he came home, I said, "sorry about..." And  he responded, "that's ok..." But I know he doesn't think it's ok.  I recall, about a year ago, that his mom found some of his messages, where he was cussing about people around him (probably his stepmom and stepdad parents, and others), and dh wouldn't share the specifics, so I suspethreat I was included in that.  The bottom line, and I have verbalized this to dh, is that I will not live in a situation where dss and dh do not show me respect.  Although dh may "put up" with certain behavior from his son, I will not, and I will be divorced from him before that happens.  That is what is so scarey for me...knowing that dh could choose his son over me.  But, the alternative of letting someone run over my boundaries (aka my first marriage) ended in my my intolerance of the situation.  C'est la vie.  We move forward.
