Hot enough for ya!? Have we not heard that enough lately? Really it's at the point for me where it's almost too hot to even move. So this makes exercise a more than usual difficult thing. The air conditioner in our house has been on the fritz. The air conditioning guy told us last week that our central air is on it's last legs, so we have to make the major investment of buying a new one. The prices range from anywhere from $5,000 on the low end to $10,000 on the high end. I think we will settle for something in the middle. However, not having an extra $10,000 in my back pocket means a home improvment loan. This is not necessarily a bad thing. With the improvement of the new system we should see a good return in cost AND the home loan will enable us to get our screened in deck finished and the trees trimmed. So I guess I'm kinda down with this senerio and the air conditioning guy said he would keep our system running until the new one is in.
However, in my world there is no relief. The powers that be, here at work, seem to think it's a good idea to turn the air off over the weekends. Never mind that we have people here who work on the weekend and millions of dollars of equipment that need to be cooled. Anyway, when I come to the office on Monday it's almost unbareable to be at work and usually by Friday it's a normal temp. Except for this week. It's been pretty aweful all week and I have my fan on in my office pointing toward me. I know it could be worse, I could be in Iraq but you get used to what you get used to.
AND.. have you noticed that people are much more cranky because of the heat? I think I've had little arguements with at least 2-3 different people at work.
So to get back to my original thought. It's too damn hot to exercise. I'm doing yoga once a week and I have been outside playing with my son either early in the morning or in the evening. Isn't that enough for now? Somehow I still feel guilty that I'm not doing more but... IT'S TOO DAMN HOT!
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
