Today's haul to the house was the large bureau, two bookcases, and a set of stainless steel wire shelves (the kind used in professional kitchens) that I'll probably assemble and put into the largest downstairs closet.
It didn't take much to move that stuff in, and I cleaned up a little more before I headed out for the night again. The weekend is going to be a whirlwind of packing, moving, and unpacking. I don't have to get it all down by Sunday, but my goals are definitely to be living in the house before I take off for work again.
I don't expect that I'll be too social (though I have Chris' 40th birthday party to attend at night) this weekend. It's all about getting the house liveable until I can really concentrate on getting it to the place I want it.
As I was puttering around the house, I realized that it now feels like my home. No bed, no dining room table, no microwave or TV stand, but it's my place, and it's starting to feel like the place I'm going to be coming home to every night.
Speaking of settling in, I have to look for a new gym. The one I go to now is in my current hometown, and it's way too out of the way for me to continue going.
There's a Gold's Gym in the town next to my new city, as well as one that's just down the street from work. I haven't done the research yet, but I hope that they allow members to use the same passes in different gyms. I think it has to do with whether the gyms are part of a franchise or owner operated, but it would be great to have two places to go work out, especially on days when I'm running late or on weekends.
Today's workout was tough! I've been trying to incorporate a lot more compound exercises into my routines, but compounds require perfect form in order to avoid injury.
Today was leg/shoulder day. Legs can be done easily with no real effort, but if you put in the effort, you're rewarded with big gains and big amounts of soreness throughout the day after the workout.
I was already feeling pretty stiff and sore after squats and lunges, but it wasn't until I added a cardio routine later on in the afternoon (5 miles at a moderate pace) that I killed my legs entirely. They feel like lead columns right now, but I think I should get away with walking, if not negotiating stairs.
I'm a little shy in the gym, so it'll be a readjustment once I decide on a new place. I hope I like the people and the equipment.
Even if I don't, it's more a matter of keeping consistent than having the "perfect" place to work out.
After working on the house and a...social engagement that was fun, I was feeling kind of peckish, or rather, totally starved.
I don't make the best food choices when I'm extremely hungry, so I trolled the aisles for the worst stuff I could find. I bought some Easter candy, some brownies, some chips, and some breaded chickent to cook.
I haven't entirely binged right now, but it's a possibility. I think the possibility is much more tempting than when I have nothing in the house to snack on at all. I can only make responsible choices when there are choices to be made.
I should get to bed. I have an entire bedroom to pack, stuff to move, furniture to assemble, and a bedroom to put into a semblance of order so I can sleep.
I took my klonopin over an hour ago, and I can feel it taking effect. Any spelling errors are a bonus, because I'm just that generous.
