~* GOYA!!! *~

Get Off Your Ass!!!

This is something my old boss used to drill into my head, and I think he stole it from the movie "Boiler Room". It was used in a sales atmosphere, which comes in handy for my new job, but I'm using it in the most literal sense this morning.

Yesterday, I was a little shocked. I tagged along with one of my co-workers to grab his leads from a lead box at a sporting goods store, and to pick up some pamphlets from various places to order food platters for an event we're having soon. He parked the car closest to the sporting goods store, and the grocery store was 3 stores down. He looked at me and said with complete sincerity "You weren't planning to walk down there, were you?".

Actually, I was. I walk almost three miles round-trip to and from the bus stop every day. 3 stores down is not a big deal to me. Besides that, we're working for a gym, not a car dealership. Geezus, the percentage of the human body that is comprised of pure laziness astounds me sometimes. Granted, I was a lazy lazy lazy kid- sleeping til noon, sitting around reading instead of playing sports, bribing my sister to do my chores for me. But that was when I was a kid, and I didn't need to represent a company's point of view (or get myself around). So grow up, GOYA, and be a good example people!!!

~* Same Ol', But A Little Bit New *~

So, Mr. M is in the field. Again. For 2 weeks this time. We just got home, he just found out about this on Saturday, but I guess it's all part of Army life. Boo. At least he should be able to come home over the weekend. Fingers crossed. We're planning to see the new Lion King 3D movie =) We're both just kids at heart.

On the new side of things, I started my new job as a fitness consultant for Gold's Gym today. I had a good day, but I didn't get out til a little after 6, so having to take the bus home, I didn't get in until almost 8pm. Luckily for me, it wasn't dark yet. It was that perfectly pretty time of day with a light breeze and cotton candy sunset.  I hate to sound like a wimp or paranoid, but I'm not terribly comfortable walking home in the dark. I feel amazing after spending the whole day in the gym! True, the only exercise I got in today was the 3 mile roundtrip walk to and from the bus stop, but I feel healthier and in better shape just from the gym atmosphere. I can't wait to get in a good workout, but I'm waiting for the computer systems to catch up (they were down all weekend). To keep with the feeling-good-feeling, I had a yummy salad for dinner. I don't know why, but I love making salads at home. I guess it's that creative side of me.

Anyway, I better go spend some time with the poor dog before bedtime. G'night y'all!
