So ProD day, contrary to popular belief, is not a day off for me. I had to sit in a meeting all day. Can you tell how many times I’ve been bugged about this all day?!?!πŸ˜–


Thankfully I started my day with a workout with L. It was tough to get out of bed and get going, but I am always so happy when I’m done. I must have been partially asleep though as I kept knocking the emergency stop button on the treadmill so my average pace was horrible today. I however know that I got up to 7.5 for my fast intervals, so I’m happy.

We also did some floor work that involved planks which demonstrated how long it has been since I’ve done that! I need to figure out how to put them into the Hallmark workouts! We also did some flies, pulldowns, and rows so I guess it was an upper body and abs day- not a bad thing for me!


My seminar today was not very successful as this woman was saying the same thing she has said the other six times I’ve seen her. I was told that our whole school had to go to this, but it really was a waste for me, which really bugs me because there are so many things I want to learn about!


I signed up today for Fresh Prep which is one of those services that delivers the ingredients and recipe to you and you then cook. The first week is half price so I wanted to try it, but I am very nervous about doing this as I always am about these programs that automatically bill every week/month. I am wondering how difficult it is going to be to cancel if I want to, whether it will be econominally smart for me to do this, how many meals I’ll get out of it, whether I will just spend more with still going to the grocery store, and of course, whether I will get sick. I guess we shall see.


On the way home I stopped and picked up my Bookclub book, but today I managed to get the kids Bookclub book done. It was Chester and Gus by Cammie McGovern. The book is about a service dog who fails his test and is subsequently bought by a family with an autistic son. The book is told from the dog’s point of view which was very cool and imaginative. It was in some ways a sad book, but also one that makes you really think about bonds and communication.


I have also spent a lot of time knitting since finishing the book as I wanted to have both toques ready for Sarah to check out tomorrow. This one I think is going to be too wide and short but at least she can decide if she likes the colour and the pattern.

I have since started a Date Night too for myself in some very old Bouquet yarn. I’m not sure it’s going to work, but we shall see.

Well I need sleep as I’m thinking about running before work tomorrow.

Have fun!

  1. Nothing wakes you up more than accidentally pulling out the emergency stop on the treadmill. It scares the crap out of me!

    You should see if Fresh Prep has an option to skip weeks. This way you can see how the first week goes before you decide if you want to keep going or cancel. I do like those services since they give me new recipes to try.

    1. They do have the option to skip weeks so I was already thinking of skipping the week after. I should go do that before I forget!
      I am hoping it will get me to eat better as I so often just have cheese on cucumber for dinner.

      1. Definitely skip before you forget! That’s happened to me before and it stinks haha. It’s fun to have fresh recipes to pick from. We did Hello Fresh a few months ago and got a great recipe for poblano enchiladas that were delicious!

      2. I cancelled it but that’s because I’m forgetful and will not remember to skip boxes. If we ever want to get another box I can just reactivate the account

  2. Nothing is more frustrating at work then useless professional development. I bring my knitting to keep my from losing my mind! There is always a sock in my desk drawer.
