I'm going to Spain!!! Well, at least I'm about 95% sure, and it's for work which means that I won't get to travel around or anything fun like that, but still. It's Spain, all expenses included, and what is even cooler is that it's in the Basque Country. It's historically known as a separatist area (if you're familiar with the 1970s and the bombings that happened in Spain, it's from the terrorists that come out of these places), but I googled some pictures of the town that I will be staying at and it is GORGEOUS. I am a bit nervous though, because part of this whole thing-- yes, there is a catch-- is that I have to present at an international conference. I looked at the program, and it's me, the American, and a bunch of European scholars. I need to start a new mantra... I am the expert, I am the expert, I am the expert... or I'm going to have a nervous breakdown before this trip in three weeks.
I'm still sick. This is three days without the gym, although I might go this afternoon for a while. It completely depends on how I feel by the end of the day. Lucky for me that my friend J suggested I check out some Musinex. Sudafed really doesn't do much for me, but there is something else in Musinex that let me sleep like a baby last night. And I'm counting down the next five minutes before I can take my next dose. The thing I hate about buying cold medicine (I don't know if my international readers have to deal with this or not) is all the paperwork you need to fill out. Can't we just sign an affidavit saying we're not going to make meth with this? That we really DO have a cold and have a need for this medicine?? I can't believe our society has been reduced to this.
So... another question for y'all out in blogland: Do you prefer to work out in the morning, after work, or at night? I'm going back and forth between waking up early to go work (I wake up at 6 when I head to the gym) or just going there after work. The problem with waking up early is that I noticed that I really don't go to bed any earlier than on days that I don't get up at 6 to go to the gym. That leaves me wondering, when do YOU work out?
Weigh in is tomorrow... keep your fingers crossed for a good loss!!
