This week felt really long for a short week - I'm not really sure why. I'm just so damn happy it's the weekend. I have plans all three days, which is usually stressful for me, but I'm looking forward to it. Drinks tonight at Tradition, date tomorrow, and then Sunday hanging out with MB. Should be a good time! I'll just have to rest up on Saturday during the day while I finish season 1 of Homeland, which might be my new favorite show.
I've rededicated myself to the gym - with pricy training sessions that will hopefully do something. I like my new trainer - she's Aussie and seems like a taskmaster. We have a real plan and I think she's going to keep me to it. My old trainer kind of let things lapse - this one wants me to track my eating for her and we'll have check ins every two weeks to assess my progress. Yikes! I'm scared, but it needs to be done. I've gained so much weight recently and I'm no longer in my sweet spot, so I need to put in work to get there. I just have to remember that I used to be an athlete and channel the fuck out of my former high school self. Because in the ensuing 9 years, I've become a couch potato. So it's 3x a week and cardio the other 2x. Drinking less when I'm at home and eating healthier. God help me...
I have a date on Saturday, which kind of just happened out of nowhere. Immediately after I blocked the bro-ish asshole I've been talking to (who's been trying to get me to send him naked pictures), I got an IM from a guy who recommended a history podcast to me. I was pretty hooked by that - I love history! He's my 'type' - Jewish and engineer. I want to just take a second to stop and ask what it is about me that seems to draw Jewish engineers in. Is it just that there are so many of them in the Bay? My life coach was asking me if I have anything in my profile about looking for that type and I don't, so I'm just shocked that they always seem to find me. It's fine (I like it), but I'm curious. Anyway, the boy. We chatted for a while and then he asked me out for this weekend. No crazy back and forth - just straight for it. I was impressed with his forwardness. So yeah, date!
Anyway, I should do some work. That's my weekend!
