Do you know what's worse than a USCIS officer that hates you?
But a personal trainer that hates you?
Well it's close.
I'm on day 3 of my 5am/6pm, two-a-day boot camp.Yesterday I was so sore that I contemplated throwing myself down the stairs because it would be less painful than actually lifting my leg to take a step.
This morning we had a "fun run"...30 second intervals of fast sprints with a "recovery jog" in between. After the embarrassing struggle to crunch my abs during the prior 10 minutes I thought finally something I can do. I mean I ran a half marathon 6 months ago. That's like 13.1 miles...says so on the sticker on my car right? I got this.
I sucked it up. Literally. I was sucking for air.
Damn this is hard(er) each time.
The thing about exercising is you sort of have to keep doing it. Duh. I know this so why is exercise a chronic series of fits and starts for me? What's that 2012 word of mine? Discipline? Yeah that's it, that's what it takes. That's what I need.
If only it were on Amazon. I'd order up a case right now.
slightly less self adsorbed news;
- I received the hard copy of our I 800 approval. It was actually dated December 28th a WHOLE DAY (dripping sarcasm) sooner than we thought. I'm starting my daily calls to the NVC today to find out if our approval was cabled to Guangzhou. If I can get a PDF copy of the cable we can save a week or two waiting for the next step.
- Middle Child broke his leg last week. It was a bizarre injury and I still cant believe he did it. He slipped and fell on a wet tile floor. I saw the whole thing and honestly it didn't seem possible that he could have hurt himself much less break a bone. Luckily he does not need surgery and he should heal just fine but he will be in a cast for at least the next 6 weeks. We are all hoping it is off before we leave for China.
Oh well off to get ready for work...damn I've got to climb those stairs.
