Yesterday I did a 3 hour aerobathon workout at the gym and later that day I went with a couple of friends to a New Year's Day 5k. I mostly walked the 5k, my time was right at 40 minutes.

Seriously now! what was I thinking!? Even a one hour workout class makes me sore the next day. I can't believe I did three hours and than a 5k on the same day. I was pretty pumped up from all the exercise but today my body is in protest to all movement.

Happy New Year!

We stayed up late last night to ring in the new year despite the fact that Greg had to work early this morning. We had a good time playing "Rock Band" on the Play Station 3 at the our neighbor's house. I sang Sting's Message in a Bottle which is harder than it seems. Greg rocked out on the plastic guitar and I tried my skill at the drums (76 percent accuracy WOOT!) It was good fun, good food, and good friends.

We started off the new year bright and early with a special breakfast of pumpkin spice pancakes with REAL maple syrup (I forked over the big bucks and spent $6 on a little bottle)We didn't have a long morning together as Greg had to leave at 7:30 am.

With Greg off at work I went with my friend to the gym's New Year's Day Aerobathon. I feel totally insane, I just got home from the 3 hour workout and my body will be feeling sore tomorrow. The workouts weren't so bad, but I was really having a hard time with the cycle class-one hour on a bike makes your bum sore and when you are finished it takes a few minutes for your legs to return to normal.

I think I'll take it easy the rest of today.

Happy New Year everyone! 2009 is here!


Tacky Christmas Sweater Party

My neighbors threw a Tacky Christmas Sweater Party on December 23, 2008. About half of us wore truly tacky sweaters, others wore some pretty goofy Christmas hats. My good friend Lacey planned out some great Christmas themed games including Christmas carol charades. Apparently someone recorded my attempt to play along.
