I finished a large chunk of the work that has been weighing on me, and I feel great! Tomorrow Boyfriend and I go to Charleston for three days, and though we are going for an academic conference, I'm thinking about it like a romantic mini-getaway.
Best Friend emailed me this morning and told me that her instructor at Barry's Bootcamp said a minute of holding a plank is equal to 100 sit-ups. I said I can't believe it, but she assured me that he said a whole bunch of doctor's agree that 1 minute of a plank = 100 crunches. WOO HOO. No wonder my heart is racing after I hold one for more than 1:00. Today I did 1:35. I'm building my way up to 2:30 so I'm extending the plank-a-day challenge through February.
January was really the worst month in terms of events and work pile up. I'm looking forward to returning from SC and making working out/eating right as much of a priority as teaching/research/writing. Today I did my nails, two face masks and plucked my eyebrows. I've also got all the laundry in and I'm banging through the last of my 'to-dos.' All this for clean slate February!
I won't be posting while we are away - I'll be networking during the day and snuggling with my honey at night. I hope you guys have an awesome weekend!
