Time Management

Basically, I just suck at it lately, and it seems to be in most aspects of my life right now.
I had to throw away food again because I ran out of time to cook it, I owe about a dozen thank you notes (mostly from my bday a few weeks back... eek!), I haven't tracked my calories and workouts properly in 5 days, I wanted to blog about stuff since Friday, I haven't finished some board stuff for the club and have a meeting tonight, I haven't balanced my check book in awhile, AND I really should do my job.

So what do I do first, my blog of course! This seems to be the best option :-)

It was a beautiful day. I mean, just the perfect 70 degree February day. It was also my first rest day of the week, so I was excited.

But, instead of a full rest day, Mr. Shorty Shorts and I decided to go to lunch. How is that not resting you ask? Well, we took bikes! It was my first trip with the Capital Bikeshare! I have been a member for awhile, but this was my first trip (as I have not yet bought a helmet for the office and I REFUSE to ride without one).
The 1.6 miles each way was a lot of fun. It also looked like I had never been on a bike before, but I will get the hang of these bike soon enough.

By 4 o'clock, I just couldn't take it anymore and left. I mean really, how many 70 degree days do you get in February?!?!

I managed to get in my 30 minute bike and 30 minute run all inside without many problems.
I was trying to multi task and I threw in all my laundry when I went from the bike to the run. Once the run was over, I put everything into the dryer and went to take a shower. Guess what, all my towels were in the dryer. Multitasking Fail!

I spent the rest of the day in a windy park celebrating the cutest dog ever. Carolina knows I plan on stealing this fur ball mop sometime soon. I think she could totally keep up with me on my runs :-)

Spin. Rob. No other words needed to explain the day.

AND Coach was super happy with my work again this week!! Woot! I have been rewarded with a rest week. Still 8 workouts, but less time and a lot of "keep it easy".

I got right to work on my workouts by hopping on my trainer for 45 minutes while I caught up on some much needed DVR time. Then down to the treadmill for a good 30 minutes. I wasn't technically supposed to do a brick, but I don't have a lot of time this week so I figured it would be okay. My legs were feeling it at the end, but I was happy.

Today, Tuesday
YOGA STEVE! I have a meeting tonight (and should be working on that stuff and not blogging) so not sure if I will get in my ride. But give this is technically a rest week, I figured yoga was the better choice.

Hopefully I can focus more, become a bit better at multitasking (and have towels ready when I get out of the shower), and cook more so I stop throwing out rotten mushrooms. Those really stink up a refrigerator!

Well, it sounds to me like you managed your time very well by coming to the puppy shower. You're welcome to come and play with Ninja whenever you'd like... but FYI, she's microchipped, so you can't steal her!
