Snooze Alarm Abuse
Every so often the snooze button gets hit one or 5 too many times and I’m in a big rush to make it out the door. I ride a commuter shuttle so I HAVE to be on time each day. This morning I had about 7 minutes max to get out the door. I pulled on some hiking pants that I had out, a tshirt and a fleece pullover, brushed my teeth and hit the door. SO sophisticated, SO professional, SO age appropriate. Ha. Guess it’s a good thing that the general attitude toward clothing where I work is such that my NASCAR style a.m. routine doesn’t warrant a second glance. Oh well, feeling disheveled gave me a reason to hit the fitness center at lunch even though I know I want to get my Tuesday night Biggest Loser workout on later. That way I could feel justified in taking a shower and cleaning myself up a bit.

Joe said-“this hurts, you should try it” he had me flat on my back with my arms over my head just a few inches off the ground and he put a 10lb medicine ball in my hands and said “hold it” Ouch
