No fooling here

Frustration abounds right now. I work at a job where there is a lot of down time. A LOT! The consolation to the hours of utter boredom have been that I've been able to write my blog posts at work. I've also been able to read and respond to blogs whilst at work. New computers mean new restrictions in the Internet apparently. We've always had restrictions...Facebook, games, various things like that. The restrictions just became near unbearable. I figured out last Friday that they have blogs blocked for me. I can read blogs through but I can't go to the actual blogs to post. Grrrrr. I swallowed my frustration and rolled with the punch. Until today. Today I figured out that I can't log onto blogger, which means I can't post to my blog (well I can, however I am tying this entry using my cellphone.). Can you say frustrating? No, this is NOT an Aprils fool joke! I have my weight to update today, my book list to update. I have things to do and I am hogtied and unable to do anything. I want to scream! This medium has been instrumental to my weight loss efforts. It keeps me accountable. (Guess I better get used to doing it at home just like most people....but what am I going to do with all my down time at work!?)

I walked early yesterday morning with Sherry. I was planning on going back out to run after eating breakfast with my husband but it started to rain. I shelved my run and hung out and relaxed and eventually went to town for Easter dinner/lunch. I gathered my mojo and went out at about 4pm and got in an interval run. I need to point out that it was raining and I still ran!!!

This morning I started my first day of Jillian Michael's thirty day shred. It was difficult. My muscles were shaking and tired at some points. I could definitely tell what muscles are the weaker ones.

It looks like you did good posting with your cellphone. Maybe it's time to get an iPad! ;-)

My work blocked facebook and all other social networking sites about a year and a half ago. I guess people were on facebook (or more accurately, farmville) for most of the work day so they decided to block it. Thankfully they haven't blocked blogger yet, I don't know what I would do if they did. :-(
