I can't believe it's not the end of the week yet.  
This has got to be the longest freaking week in the history of my life. First that horrible tax deadline thing - then the three hour traffic to work... I honestly sat here and thought that today was Friday. I started writing an entry that said "It's the weekend!" Then I realized I was a day too early... Ugh! :(

It's been two weeks since I've been going to Curves and it's amazing how motivated I still am (I've quit countless gyms, etc in the past - I really don't have a good track record with exercise programs). Amazingly, I find myself looking at the clock at work and thinking "Yay, two more hours and then I get to work out!" Whoa... "...and then I get to work out?!?!" :O "...leave this insane place called a bank," maybe...but never work out! At least, not until recently... :)

I don't know if I'm losing weight - and really, that's not my goal. My goal is to just get into better shape and relieve all of my work stress. And I have to say that it's definitely working in that respect. The other day I was furious with my boss when I left work, went to work out all my aggression and then felt worlds better driving home - I couldn't even remember why I was so mad at him the next day.

I just hope that my enthusiasm stays.

Oh, and I stole this from counselortroi:

- Pikake
- Bath & Bodyworks lotions
- My dog, Sydney (okay, I'm not really that strange, but I have to say I love the smell of my dog...)

- chocolate ice cream
- potato...anything! (Fries, potato chips, baked potatos, etc.)
- soy sauce (yes, I'm from Hawaii after all - we use it for everything!)
- Chinese food

- my favorite pillow
- sorry have to go with couselortroi's answer here and say the feel of my dog's fur. :)
- my favorite night shirt

- a great baritone (i.e. Kevin Earley)
- a great alto belt
- a full-bodied, well led orchestra

- Hubby opening the door and greeting me when I come home each day... Isn't he sweet?
- Sydney curled up next to me
- The clock at work that says 5pm :)

- spending time with Mark
- seeing shows on Broadway
- traveling to see friends
- working on Kevin's website

...then felt worlds better driving home...

Yes, it's a good thing if one has to do other things than work, family, internet ... Even if I've got trouble I don't think of that if I'm with the horse. :)

Do you've to work on Friday? Here it's a holiday - "Good Friday".
Sometimes, the different times "drives me mad". I mean I see your entry from 17th and an other one what it's already from 18th. So I do not know if I'm too early but - to be on the safe side :) - if we don't see us once more, I wish you a nice weekend. :)

Take care.

Unfortunately, Friday isn't a holiday for me. :( We used to get the day off, but then they started cutting things back and eventually even things like our holidays were cut - now we only have Federal holidays - no state holidays - and no Good Friday. :(

I went to check out your friend's page and you're right - the dates are all so different. I think that it's because you have friends from all over the world and the time differences are so vast that sometimes it's hard for me to figure out how far you're ahead. It must already be Friday morning there? Friday night maybe? I'm so bad with these things. But I can guarantee you that I'm in the last time zone out here in Hawaii. It's still 9pm on Thursday night here... :( (Wishing it was Friday night too...) ;)

Tell me about it!---longest freaking week in the history of life.
Taxes are awful! I am right off this southern colonial towns' main traffic strip! arrrggghh!

I am glad your'e motivated at the gym! That is wonderful!!! I used to work as a trainer at Gold's, Cory Everson's, and a military gym in Japan. Motivated women were my favorite clients!
They are so wonderfully contagious!

You have smart goals! I knew I had found another intelligent woman to befriend!. Sabine's quite nice, too!

ooh, ooh I am going to do the quiz from counselortroi, too: Look for it at my journal.

Re: hey!
Thanks so much for adding me! :)

Actually I owe all of my recent motivation to the wonderful ladies who work at the gym. They really make working out fun and give our gym such a warm and friendly feeling. :) It's great that you worked at all those gyms...what an invigorating job that must've been to see people taking charge of their own lives and improving their health. :)

Sabine's quite nice, too!

She really is! She was my first LJ friend and is a real sweetheart. You should check out her journal one day. :) She's also another Sheltie lover, like me.

I'll be in and out this weekend, but if I don't get the chance to say it, please have a great Easter! :)
