Friday Five: Happy List

Here are five things that made me happy this week.
  1. Free lunch three out of four work days.
  2. Working out during lunch.
  3. SNOW!!!
  4. Seasonal candy, specifically cherry-filled Hershey Kisses
  5. Running into someone you went to college with, even if you can't place exactly how you know them.
We got snow last night! I awoke to a white world. Every since the weathermen forecast 11 inches of snow and we got two, I've ignored everything they've said. And the last two times they predicted snow, we've got a dusting or nothing at all, so I didn't think it would actually snow. It's pure snow, too. The best kind. It started snowing again this morning. Love it!

Does anyone out there work out during lunch? A colleague and I went to an aerobics class on Wednesday. We were nervous about the whole experience. Will we like it? Will we feel rushed? Will we take too long? It's almost the perfect time to exercise, if you work in a laid-back environment where taking an almost two-hour lunch is acceptable. You don't have to worry about heading to the gym when you get off work, but you don't have to get up early either. Also, it's a nice break in the middle of the day and energizes you. On the downside, I didn't eat lunch until 2 p.m. and was starving. And showering in a locker room isn't ideal. It reminded me of showering in the dorm. We are going to try it again next Monday and Wednesday and then decide if it's something we want to continue. Another great thing about working out during lunch instead of after work is not having to fight traffic on game nights during basketball season. The Rec Center is adjacent to the sports arena.

Sorry my blog has been so boring lately. I got out of the habit of writing around the holidays and the movie and haven't got back into the groove again. Oh, yeah, I also live a boring life. No trips or old men asking me out to keep you entertained.

for the record, i read your blog often and NEVER find it (or your life) boring!

I tried working out during lunch ONCE...i was sweaty the rest of the day (even after a shower). I really WANTED it to work because you are right- it is the perfect time.

ah well, i think i'll continue my sporadic, post-baby work-out routine (rare if ever runs).

Just wanted to add in an "AMEN" to #4. Cherry cordial hershey kisses are a little piece of heaven.

I would like to work out during lunch, but I think I'd need two hours. I just don't have enough time to not be totally rushed.

"Life is so daily." That's a feeling I can relate to. But we're all in the same boat. (I mean, it's been AGES since an old man has asked me out!)And I enjoy your blog.
