Fare thee well, long weekend...

Another busy three-day weekend has come and gone, and now I'm approaching the "long haul" - the three months between Presidents Day and Memorial Day where there are no paid holidays. Just one more three-day weekend to go before the drought and I dread it every year. I know I'm lucky to work in an industry that still pays for holidays, but when you have a job you really dislike, those holidays are some of the only things that get you through!

This weekend was a full one; hubs and I only spent one afternoon on the couch (heavenly!) and the rest of the time we were going, going, going. We had dinner out twice, breakfast out twice, a photo shoot with my SIL (for which I proudly sported a donut-shaped doggie chew toy on my head), saw Avatar in 3D on Imax, went to church, did the grocery shopping and even made time for love. And still it doesn't seem like 3 days was long enough!

I also started the 100 Pushups, 200 Squats, and 200 Situps programs on Sunday. I'm excited; BIL has been doing them for a few weeks now and is already showing a noticeable difference, and hubs started his last week so I thought, why not? All I've done so far are the initial tests where you see how many of each you can do in a row to determine what level you're at. The real work starts today. I have a feeling it's going to be brutal, but worth it if I can stick to it! If you're my friend on FB, feel free to hold me accountable. My progress will be tracked on there and I should be doing it every other day (or 3 days a week, I think).

I almost forgot - My doctor's appointment on Saturday was a success, although my NP wants me to get an X-ray for my neck before I go back to the chiro. Oy. But she is going to give me the referral to see the acupuncturist! I just have to call the provider to find out how to best word it so that it goes through without a hitch. She said any IF tests can be done through the gyno, and that there's even an NP there that specializes in infertility! Nice! My only concern is the cost, we still have to pay 50% and I don't know what kind of testing they'll do or how much it will run. I imagine they'll start with some more blood tests, any idea how much those are? Does it depend on what they're testing for? AF is due any day so maybe I'll just call when she shows up and ask my questions then.

Speaking of AF, yes, today is CD28. I am guessing my least favorite aunt will be here tomorrow, uninvited and unwanted as usual. It's depressing me a little, but there's nothing I can do to stop her, so I might as well keep on trucking and hope for better luck next time.

Happy NOT MONDAY!

Oh, so you work up to that 100 goal? I doubt I could do 10 push ups. I have never been able to do them.

Lots 'o luck to ya!! I can't wait to lose some weight.

I have to agree those 3-day weekends at the bank are a nice perk. Sometimes the only ones.

You sound like you've got a ton on your plate coming up. You might need to take your own holiday day off--something like St. Kitty's day.
