The Continued Saga of the Treadmill and Thursday Randomness

Little man woke me up at 3:58 this morning for a diaper change (his, not mine). I think he was trying to make sure I got up for my workout. How he knew my alarm would be going off in two minutes, I don't know. Maybe he's psychic.
He's not a morning person.

Good news - I had an awesome 45 minute workout. Bad news - it wasn't on my treadmill. Sigh. The saga with my treadmill continues. I trimmed the frayed edge off the belt (by the way, did you know treadmill belt is one of the five things in the universe that duct tape won't stick to?) and made sure nothing was catching and then started things up. Two minutes in, the belt flipped AGAIN - WTF?? I'm going to have to do some research and see what else I can do. Anyone have this problem before?

So, since it's pizza Thursday and my plan was to do 45 minutes on the treadmill, I did the 45 minutes Les Mills Combat DVD. Whoa, Nelly. It's been awhile. I've felt pretty good doing the 30 minute workout, so I didn't think stepping up to 45 would be that different. Yikes! There was a lot more twisting in this one, which I definitely felt in my lower back and pelvis toward the end. I stuck with the modifications to take out the jumping, but had to make a few of my own to reduce torque on my lower back (i.e. switching a jab for a hook).  I'm going to have to get outside and do some running this weekend, otherwise I'll have to change the name of my blog to lazywalkerdvdgirl.

I give you proof of sweatiness. FYI - I'm not a morning person either.

In other news, I have a job interview on Monday! I'm a bit freaked out since I've been at the same job for seven years. The position is a staff accountant at the local medical center - which lines up perfectly with my soon-to-be-finished degree (estimated graduation August 2017). I think I would enjoy the work, but there are going to be a ton of factors to consider if they are interested in hiring me. Don't worry, I have lists. I'm going to finish jotting down all of the factors to consider, as well as going through my resume and the advertised job description, and then try not to dwell on it until Monday morning. If nothing else, it's flattering to get an interview.

I will leave you with a few random thoughts for Thursday:
*I've had calorie deficits between 1300 and 1500 all week (yay!) and am starting to see some downward movement on the scale.
*Today we have seasonal socks that match my toenail polish. If only I had a clean purple shirt - I'd be unstoppable.
*Lola felt the need to follow me everywhere and decided that she, too needed her picture taken.

This is the first one where she didn't move right at the last minute.

Happy Thursday, Friends!
