An eventful workday in the life of J.P. 🙂 Yesterday our new webmaster/assistant system administrator started at work. Pretty cool guy – he’s picking up fast and knows a LOT about computers. I really think he’s going to work out for the company, and I know I’ll learn stuff from him.
I just finished “Ab Class”. Earl and I have become hooked on the Big Brother live feeds. Well every night, the Big Brother house hampsters (as I like to call them), do ‘Ab Class’ where they work out for 15 minutes out int he backyard, concentrating on their abs. Since my legs are becoming pretty buff if I do say so myself from my bike riding, I decided that I need to work on my abs and upper body as well. So I do ‘ab class’ – 30 minutes of aerobic exercise followed by 10 minutes of intensive ab training from exercises I downloaded from the web. I forgot where they came from, but they are pretty intense, I’m pretty sore the next day. Sore is good, right?
I didn’t ride yesterday or today, which I feel a tiny bit guilty about, but I needed to rest. Plus, I didn’t get out of work until 7:00 p.m. tonight, so it was really too late when I got home to go riding. I had to get some groceries (healthy stuff, believe it or not), so I went to P&C and went wild with my “wild card”. I’ve grown to really like Rice Milk, plus I have no pudge fudge brownies I made with yogurt. I must admit that I briefly thought about stopping at McDonalds on the way home, but I’ve worked too hard to feel good to start clogging up my body with McFat again.
My left eye is doing some funky thing tonight with allergies. It’s a little watery and swollen – I hope it feels better in the morning.
I just got off the phone with Earl – he’s in New Jersey tonight meeting with a customer. He’ll be back tomorrow. I think we’re going to go for an all day picnic adventure on Saturday. We haven’t done that in a while, and I think it would be fun for both of us. I’m anxious to go swimming in Lake Ontario at one of my favorite state parks – Southwick State Park a little southwest of Watertown. Very beautiful. I grew up near there and it’s nice to get up there from time to time.
