I have made a life change – I am working out in the mornings again. Â I will admit that one day does not a habit make, but it’s a start. Â I finally had to admit to myself that my workout habits have been broken due to the fact that at work, I typically end up having to stay late for issues. Â So when this happens, by the time the crisis is resolved, it’s late enough for me to say Eff that to working out. Â Mornings though almost always are a slow start, and would guarantee that I can get some exercise in. Â So I got up at 6:15 AM (!!!! – I haven’t done that since AF times, I swear), got ready and headed in to the gym at work. Â I realized then that NYCÂ is definitely a city that does sleep, it’s just not until 7am in the morning. Â My commute was awesome!!! Â The subways were not crowded and the sidewalks were almost…quiet. Â I could get used to this. Â It was great to be done and it is a good way to get awake, although I still grabbed a cup of coffee afterwards. Â So Day 1 done – here’s hoping I can stick with it.
This weekend was Larry’s birthday weekend. Â He got the first season of Star Trek on Blu-Ray and some awesome center orchestra tickets to see West Side Story on Broadway this week. Â He’s got a great boyfriend. Â We also went to see ‘Up’ (so good…and so emotional too!), went to the Whitney museum (not Whitney Houston, alas; it’s a very cool museum focused on American art); had BENIHANA for dinner (I LOVE that place); also saw Terminator Salvation on Sunday. Â I enjoyed the movie and it does seem that it is keeping in step with events that have been told in the earlier movies. Â I’m not sure it’s that great of a movie… I really enjoyed the first three a lot more (I watched T1 last night at home – damn that movie still is good).
So now back at work. Â It should be a good week as we’ll get to see West Side Story on Wednesday and if all goes well, I’ll even get home every night at a decent hour as my workout will be done in the morning. Â I’m also going to be writing for RealityNewsOnline the Thursday night recap of ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here!’ Â I enjoy writing for the webpage and it gives me something to do that has nothing to do with my job, although this time the show is on NBC….
