Apparently I had a weekend.  
I was quite good yesterday. I went to the gym and tried the machine where you sit and use your arms, rather like a bike, and then I tried the cycle for a bit. Did all right, but not nearly as much of a workout as the treadmill is. Mer.

Then I met selinakyle47 for ice cream at Cold Stone and we had a nice chat about everything and nothing and admired her less-than-a-month-old little daughter. SO ADORABLE!!! Yay for babies that are not mine. Hee.

I watched two episodes of Star Trek: TNG last night in a rare turning-on-the-TV moment. The 4400 starts up again tonight, though, so apparently I will be back to watching one hour a week on Sunday nights - if I can remember every Sunday, that is.

Today I've spent most of the day going through all the clothes that are now far too big for me. I have one person interested in buying them on the cheap, but if she doesn't want some of them - is there anyone else who reads my flist who wears the sizes I used to who might be interested in what's left? Let me know.

Talked to my mom earlier about the Miami job - it's not looking very promising. The hiring manager 'doesn't want to move on it' which is, umm, not helpful? So, wheee. Who the hell knows what I'm going to do.

Lastly, there is a love meme happening. We like love memes, so anon or not, please leave me some love.
I feel: accomplishedsorta accomplished

Ooh, the arm-bicycle-thing, whose actual name I have never learned! That's my favorite way to get my entire upper body quickly warmed up before I lift. And I agree with you about cycles versus treadmills, but I do force myself to ride a bike every now and then to change my routine.

Yeah, I have no idea what anything's called. I'm lucky I can manage to make stuff work there at all. I won't try the weight machines because I'm convinced I'll kill myself in a truly Darwinian fashion. :)) I'm trying to be careful of my stupid torn ACL, but this is most uncool. I suppose I need to get off my arse and call about physical therapy. -.-

I'd forgotten about your torn ACL. Ugh. I vote for physical therapy, especially on something as integral as one of your knees....

When I belonged to a gym, I used the bike on days when the treadmill wasn't workable:
*all the treadmills are occupied and I don't have time to wait
*I have pain somewhere in my lower body, so walking would suck
*I have a headache/sore throat/cough/whatever and I need an easier workout
*I am reading a book I can't put down, and I can read on the bike

I had mucho fun. Thanks so much for the lovely gift.

FYI, Harper College is having a free screening of GOF outdoors next Wednesday. I'm thinking of going but I'd have to bring the baby along and it's starts at 8:30...

I did, too! And you're so welcome - I was glad to get to see her.

Why do they have to do these things on weeknights? Bah. They don't seem to understand that I'm OLD and have to work...
