  • Why do all of my library holds come in at the same time? I am reading A Storm of Swords right now and won't be able to get all of the other books read in time. Bah!

    Me too! I've been waiting for "Wild" since April, and "Leaving Time" since May, now they both have 1 person ahead of me ugh I can't read both in only 2 weeks!

    I also have no motivation to work today. I really wish I was at the beach instead.

  • I am so sick of my job.

    Also, I had good intentions of not partaking in our office potluck today but our staff meeting was so bad that I've spent the last hour stuffing my face with baked goods.

    I said this to myself yesterday.  I feel your pain.

  • Yay @hoycie! My lack of motivation is ridiculous, which is why my big pants are currently tight on me.

  • It's effing freezing in the office today.  I used to have a company fleece at my old job that I kept there, but I think it would probably be in poor form to bring it here.  I'll have to come up with something else, I guess.

    @caseyandlizzie Now all I want is The Tonight Dough.  Thanks for the rec, I wouldn't have picked it up on my own.

  • J and I watched Interstellar last night.  Sometimes I think I'm too dumb for these mind bending movies.  I mean, I got for the most part, but I spent half the movie trying to figure out WTF was going on.

  • I need another person to motivate me to work out. I tried on Tuesday to do the on-demand workouts on tv, couldn't get through 1, 20 min. video. Last night my H and I went for a walk in the local park, did 2 miles including 1 jog lap around the track (which is huge for me.) I love the idea of keeping the clothes in the work out room, you really have no excuse then, or at least you feel guilty for not working out. I keep a swim suit in my car, sometimes I can swim in the pool after work but I can't get motivated to go.

    I started re-watching FRIENDS while I work out.  I'm entertained and don't notice the time going by. Andplusalso, there are a heck of a lot of seasons.

    I know that when I get home, I can't stop and sit because I just won't get back up.

    When it comes to working out, I am SUPER dependent on friends/family and will never go work out by myself.  Well for the last 2 weeks, I have been going almost every day by myself.  My fiance and I had planned to go together, but he has been flaking.  However after I walk my dog when I get home, I don't even think about it and put on my gym clothes and go DOWNSTAIRS to the gym in my complex.  That's how lazy I was. The gym that I have been paying for with my association fees IS RIGHT DOWNSTAIRS. Well, no more and I must say that I am really proud of myself.


    I'm impressed. I absolutely cannot get my ass to the gym unless I have a workout buddy. I just can't. If someone else is going, the pressure of having to actual call and cancel with them is enough that I will just get it in gear and go. I hate that I can't motivate myself.

  • I'm going to Hawaii in early August with my husband. He is working a job there for two weeks. We will be going during my birthday week.  Happy Birthday to me!
    Swimming, reading, relaxing, and drinking. That's my plan.

    My upcoming wedding is one hell of a motivator.  Have a little over a year left and have LOTS TO DO!

    Try watching a show on Netflix. It helps.

  • I love the idea of watching a show. Watching the time pass is awful. At least if you get addicted to the show you have a reason to work out again.

  • @Hoycie Yay wedding!!!!!!
