And a good evening to you from across the Pond on a BITTER Monday in the Mother Country. I walked to the Tube in SNOW this morning! Now granted, I realize that folks like Big Cat, Brother Brisson, and the "Real H" are shaking their heads right now, as the Mid-Atlantic got simply POUNDED, but the wind here truly is bitter, and it cut me to the BONE today!
That being said, it was a GREAT day. Work was very productive, I made some good progress in "A People's History" (just 200 pages to go!), and I got a 1 hour plus workout. I went for 40 on the bike, followed by 20 on the elliptical. Um, seriously - can anyone tell me HOW IN THE HELL that machine is supposed to work? Anytime I tried pumping my arms, the damn machine almost launched me off the apparatus and threw a wall. Then again, maybe it's just because THE GUN SHOW IS IN TOWN. But actually...I think it's more because I'm an IDIOT and couldn't figure out how to work it.
I skipped coffee today in an effort to eliminate a few calories, and my beautiful bride is currently whipping up a nice salad for dinner. She did the elliptical as well today (sabotaged by water aerobics classes - GUTTED!), and we got GREAT news from LA Fitness! The manager called and has agreed to refund the money we got double charged! Now, granted - I will believe it when I see it. That being said, I am a happy camper for the evening.
Lastly - full marks to the New Orleans Saints. Brees is a great guy, and I am happy for them. Don't worry, Peyton - there's always next season!
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Stay warm wherever you are, and we'll chat tomorrow!
