I have an extra bounce in my step this morning, I will admit. I think my head is going to explode because my ego is huge right now. haha. Ok, I am embellishing, but humour my walk to work this morning, will you?
Let me preface this a bit for you. The part of the city that I work in is an Italian area….lots of Italian men everywhere. If you have been to Italy, you know how they are. ;) Anyways, after setting off my panic alarm on my car while I was exiting it, embarassingly, I fumbled with my bag, tea mug, and keys to turn it off. As I got out of my car there were two Italian men starring at me, and one of them says, loudly, “Oh my God, she is beautiful…she looks like she is from Poland” (wtf?)…I kept walking and smiled to myself. They got in their car and as they drove by, one sticks his head out the window and says, “You are gorgeous…(I think I laughed) awww there’s that smile….you just made my day beautiful. Can I take your picture?” I laughed and said no!!! Good grief. Those Italian men are aggressive! Creepy! I felt like saying to him, you made my day because I was feeling anything but beautiful when I woke up this morning with my red, allergic-reaction, puffy eyes and red itchy lips.
What compliments have you received that stick out in your mind?
My workout this morning was really good! I finally felt fine enough to do my Interval workout on the treadmill. I alternate about 3-5 mins. of walking, with short bursts of high intensity running for about 40-60 seconds (@ incline 15- this is HARD).
- 40 mins. Interval on treadmill, incline 15, speed 4.0 mph
- 25 crunches on stability ball (my abs are sore today!)
- 20 arm raises with 15 lb. dumbbells
- 24 flights of stairs
- The treadmill says I covered 2.9 miles and burned 460ish calories (but who really knows if that is accurate). I would guess it was closer to 400. I want to purchase a heart rate monitor soon! My old Polar monitor broke :(
You know how yesterday I said that I was disappointed with my new Cover Girl GC Smoothers Compact Powder? It is chalky and dusty! It gets everywhere! What the heck?!
What is your favourite Compact Powder?
See you this afternoon for my Reese’s Pieces Cookies post! :D
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
