|Chicken w/tomatoes and capers|
As it turns out I did end up feeling the affects of Thursday's work-out last night after I started walking. It can't be good when your toes start going numb while walking right? That's what happened last night and it pretty much freaked me out. I'm not sure if that's a weight thing, a fatigue thing, or maybe a circulation thing caused by the fact that Diabetes runs in my family but I didn't like it at all...very scary and strange.
Today I have to put together the invoices for work and get them in the mail and even though I completed all of my homework for the week last night, I need to log in to school and just double check everything, make sure I got full participation credit etc. I have until tomorrow night so if I'm missing any credit I'll be able to make up for it today and tomorrow (though I'm usually ok unless I just have a really strict instructor).
I spent literally hours looking at dogs online last night; adoptable rescues not breeders. I found a handful of young dogs that I liked but none of them were teeny tiny puppies so Snack Monkey nixed every single one of them. I swear he's dreaming if he thinks we're going to find a pure-bred, 8 week old puppy at a shelter and for the breeds we're looking at breeders want over $1,000 per dog. Well that's just not gonna happen. I'm strict on rescuing not buying from breeders. Piper was the only exception because I got her from my sister who owned both of her parents and she sure as heck didn't cost anything close to $1,000! I mean, we're in hard economic times right now and people are really breeding new litters and asking for that much money when there are thousands of unwanted dogs in shelters and rescues; many of them pure-breeds?! Just crazy.

I decided to try something new tonight so I used Netflix to find a cardio salsa work out that I could watch on the Wii. After the first 20 minutes I was panting, sweating, and my calves were burning like crazy. I am SO OUT OF SHAPE! So I took a water break, then went at it again for another 10 or so. Then I decided to see if I could find something more on my level so I pulled up a 10 minutes pilates workout. ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDIN' ME?! It was supposed to be for beginners but I swear the chick was a contortionist! Well I did the full 10 and I put my damndest effort into doing each exercise correct (or as close to it as I could manage) but it's quite clear that I'm not yet in any position to be using workout videos yet so I guess tomorrow I'll go back to walking for another 50 lbs or so.
