Some Things Friday

I keep forgetting to do a 15 Thing Friday until it's 11:45 pm and I've watched my Frasier and I'm ready to go to bed.  I don't know how this lady comes up with 15 things every week.  I'm so not that creative.  So... it's Friday.  Here are some things.  Not sure if there will be 15.  If there is... consider it a Christmas miracle.

1.  The six mile tempo run did not happen again today - I agreed to sub for open hours after my Friday morning meeting, and by the time I got home and had eaten something so as not to punch anyone in the face, it was way too late.  I'm not a running at night girl, even in my super safe little town.  So I tortured myself with HIIT 20, a Jillian Michaels circuit that is in this month's Self magazine, and level 2 of her 30 Day Shred.  And then I cried.


2.  I have now taken my Lululemon addiction one horrifying step further: eBay.  I may need to seek professional help.



3.  Google is currently one of the best things I've seen all day.  Go look.  Right now.  It is more important than the rest of the 15 or less things I will come up with.

4.  If that doesn't entertain you, then certainly this will.  I am in love.


5.  And if you are in need of a laugh - skip to 5:33.  Watch repeatedly.  Thank me later.


6.  I met a new coworker today.  She is not new to the company, she was just new to me.  She seemed nice enough, we seemed to get along fine.  I interacted with her for maybe a half hour (she was the Leader on a meeting right before the open hours that I was subbing) and it seemed fine.  Until she called the center I was working at about 30 minutes after she left to criticize something I had done.  Um.  Really?  This is a grown woman calling me at work to tell me what I'd done wrong.  And the thing she was criticizing (which, by the way, was a simple judgement call I made to ensure that a member left feeling prepared, with all the tools she needed) happened about 15 minutes before the Leader had left.  She had 15 minutes to tell me that she didn't like what I had done with the member... disregarding the fact, of course, that it was not her place and it didn't affect her in the slightest.  But no.  She had to be a coward and call me instead of just saying something to my face.  I love the members, I love being there to help them, and I love being able to teach the Weight Watchers program and philosophy to people... but I really wish I worked with normal people.  With spines. 


7.  On a completely different note, I found this blog post through Twitter and bawled my eyes out.  Between rude Leader and just feeling all around stressed, I was starting to feel like I'd lost my Christmas spirit.  That post is a poignant reminder to not lose the spirit.  Working on it.
