Hitting the Ground

When I was in college, I was very self-conscious and nervous when I went to the dining halls.  Initially, my apprehension revolved around carrying a tray and having someone knock down my tray, or falling with a tray full of food a la every high school movie I had ever seen.  And the next phase of my insecurity stemmed from the fact that there were new people around me who seemed very intent on what I was saying (they obviously didn’t know me very well) and I was compelled to take tiny bites to avoid a food related embarrassment.  Small bites require a lot of cutting, and I don’t even know how to use a butter knife, so the whole thing was not my favorite time of the day.  I’d like to say that I’ve grown more confident, but honest to goodness, when I bring a salad back to my office to eat at my desk, everything comes crashing back.  No piece of spinach, broccoli or pepper is quite small enough and people are walking by all the time and damn it, something just fell on my shirt so I have to wear a sweatshirt for the rest of the day.  Thanks food.

Started T25 last week.  We’ve all been a part of this facebook T25, Beach Body Challenge.  I think I mentioned earlier how I joined accidentally.  Well, we started and Shane asked us all for an update and Becky posted, “I forgot to get Ice this morning so I could have the shakes.  I didn’t so much hit the ground running as I just hit the ground.”  I guess me too because I did the videos for day 1 and 2 and then my back started to hurt so I laid down on the floor for an hour afterwards not moving while Percy would occasionally come and by and lick my face to make sure that I was still alive.  I switch to walking for an hour in the park every day and doing some yoga which was much better.  I particularly like when I go from plank/lying on the floor (at which point Percy will come and lie down on my back) to downward dog, and my puppy literally goes downward. 

Most of the office was down at SDCC, which was kind of nice.  We moved down to the “Garden Level” AKA the basement.  It’s pretty cool.  The lights are on, which is always an improvement.  You have press a big scary red button to get out of the office, and the windows look out to the dumpsters, but other than that, I kinda love it. 

Cassidy and Spencer, two of the interns, have graciously decided to watch Game of Thrones with me.  I can’t watch them by myself because I don’t want to, so they are taking one for the whole team.   Meanwhile, on Sunday…

Zach: I found a new show that you’re going to love.  It’s called Moone Boy.
Me: I hate that you think I’d love a show called Moon Boy.  But Okay, let’s do it.

We then proceeded to watch the entire season, followed by an entire season of Goodwin Games.  I highly recommend Moone Boy.  So fun. 

Got a text Friday night from Sean, they were in my old stomping grounds (this was the view from my apartment in college).

And this is my niece Morgan (she and Jackie went to soccer camp) rocking the Penn State gear:

I had zero plans last weekend, and I was ecstatic about it.  I finally got a bridesmaid dress that actually fits for Janette’s wedding so I could then call her and tell her that I got a dress for the wedding.  Chatting with her for a while Saturday morning, then took the dogs to the park followed by lunch outside at MOD pizza.  Got a bunch of chores done that I should have been doing for the last month but didn’t have time for.  Watched a bunch of TV went to the dog park again and then relaxed again.  It was amazing but makes for a pretty dull update.  Sorry kids! But I’m just about to get caught up on these.  We’ll see how it goes next week!
