On Location

9 Mar

Happy Friday! 🙂

I’m working from the local Barnes & Nobles today. I’m on a project at work were I really needed the opportunity to “get in the zone” and my boss is awesome so he suggested I work from home today to work on it. I knew better than to actually work from home though – there are too many distractions there between the kitties, all of the boxes begging to be packed and general housework/laundry/etc. So I parked myself at the Barnes & Nobles cafe this morning around 9.

I grabbed an iced vanilla latte so that I felt that I “paid my dues” and am planning to stay here at least until I get hungry for lunch, if not later.

starbucksicedI’ve made a good amount of progress this morning, and it has been great to put on a pair of headphones and be away from work distractions – I should really do this more often.

All week I’ve been sort of scared to work out because of the heart stuff. But last night I couldn’t deal with it anymore, I was just feeling so antsy. So I did an EA active work out and I felt GREAT during and after it. It really changed how good the rest of my evening went too – I felt completely energized and was in a good mood. I’m glad I did it, because I got a voicemail from my cardiologists office and they pushed my appointment back another week. 😦 So I plan to just do my typical exercise stuff until my appointment but pay attention to how my body is feeling, my heart rate, and do modifications if necessary. I’m heading back to yoga tonight so I’m excited about that and I’m going to try to get a run in this weekend too.

In new house news, the house is pretty much done! We had a walk through on Wednesday and everything was as it should be. The builders had left some marks on the walls as they moved the appliances, flooring and other stuff in, so we walked around with some blue tape to mark all of the scratches and such we saw for them to go back and touch up/clean. We have our last walk through this Wednesday, and our closing next Friday. 🙂 It’s getting close!

Have a good weekend guys!

    that looks like a great way to work!!!! Sadly my job is a bit different…. I am glad you are back to doing some exercise. I think cutting out everything only serves to make you think more about the possible cardiac issues and feel even worse!
    Really exciting news about the house!

      Yea I was a little scared to do too much the first few days, but I figure I’ll just listen to my body. I’ve got to do something or I’ll go crazy.
