brightly_woven: (Spare Me by Cry me a river)
<rant>

Here's the situation.  My gym is under construction, and every time they are doing something that requires storage, they use the kids' club area and cancel child care.  Sometimes there is notice, sometimes not.

Three times this year I have shown up in my gym clothes, kid(s) in tow, to use the gym only to be told I can't because construction things are in the child care room.  Or its being painted--oh, and they ran out of paint so it was out for two more days...  (This does not count the times I didn't come at all because I knew it would be closed.)

I'm really fed up.

So, I complained.  I whined, I did, that my older son had been home sick for SEVEN days and I couldn't come because of that, and now, when he's back in school for a few precious hours (it's conference week, so early release), they tell me it's closed.  After I drag my sorry self there from across town (15-20 min) with my excited-to-be-seeing-his-friends Kindergartener. 

Grrrr...

The child care manager is spotting me 2 free child cares for each 1 I missed, so that amounts to about $12.  I would rather have had the three workouts, thank you very much.

I told the Operations Manager "I am not happy" on her way in as we crossed paths, and she just gave me a dirty look.  No apology.  Nothing.

I am so ticked.

Can you tell?

Could they not have asked for all the regular child care-users emails and emailed us to warn us of upcoming closures?  Could they not store the things elsewhere?

I guess today I'm both.

After dropping off the boys and the carpoolees at school, I headed right to the gym for the third day in a row.  Today I did 25 minutes of cardio @ an average heart rate of 150 (which is 75% of max for my age).  Then I did an hour of really hard yoga.

Afterwards, I went to Baker's Square to grab a $5.99 pie (they're on special).  I proceeded to eat 1/5 of a strawberry rhubarb pie upon returning home and now feel rather ill.

As St. Paul would say, I know the good I ought and do not do it, and that which I ought not do, I do.  Except in this case I first did the good I ought to have done and then promptly undid it.

Now if I can just convince my body that pie at 11 a.m. is really lunch, it all might be not so bad.

*kicks self, but not too hard*

P.S. Did I mention that last week was my last personal training and I got fat checked again.  I'm down another ~2%.  Until today, of course :)

I realized that it's been a while since I did a general life update. Since there are (albeit a very few) people who read this as a way to keep up with the goings on at our house as opposed to most of you (who are flisters from the Austen fandom, at least originally), I decided to do a general update.

So, in no particular order, here's life at the "E" household:


8.) Finally, I'm amazed at how much silly pleasure having a LJ over the past six months has given me.  I don't think I've written one truly profound thing, but the habit of "journaling" is so much richer when all of you interact with me/it and I with you/yours.

Thanks,[profile] liselise for piquing my interest and introducing me to the concept.

I got measured again yesterday:  I have now lost exactly 4% body fat and am within spitting distance of acceptable (though still far from healthy or ideal) and 7.7 inches.  Oh, and about 5 pounds, but that is incidental. 

Woot!

I also went to my first spinning class and sweated off at least 500 calories.  So I came home and ate homeade garlic roasted pumpkin seeds and Halloween chocolate.  But only about 300 calories worth, so that's okay.  :)

Thanks again for all of your encouraging comments the last time.
