Day 84: April 1st, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Anything to Note =

Yup, you guessed it I am sure by the early blog entries today….I can’t sleep! No news here, just the same ol’ same ol’ I can’t sleep routine. Rough night – not sure but I was up for most of the night. I know I am having a hard time getting comfortable for some reason but there’s got to be more to it than that as eventually you would find a position, right?? Nope, not me. And I have always been a bad sleeper, waking up every hour, before I was pregnant, but now it’s worse than that! And I could never imagine it being worse 😦

As I was thinking this morning while lying there, maybe things are going on in my belly and its keeping me awake? Could that be a viable option maybe? I am a very light sleeper so it could be a theory – which means that this will then continue until September 22nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!

Well I decided to get up and do my 365 while I was awake before I had to go to my Brooklyn apartment walk-through with a client (a difficult client actually, so we’ll see how that goes!!). Doing 365 half asleep is odd! It’s kind of like your ears are blocked or something and your body won’t move the way you want it to – you know, like when you try to make a fist with your hand first thing and it won’t close all the way…that’s how my dance felt this morning! Only time I am ever dancing in the morning is when I have been up all night dancing and its the morning and I am still dancing!! 🙂

Well, guess what everybody? BIG NEWS!! I am having quadrouplets!!!!!!!!!

Yup, quadrouplets!!! I just found out – my doctor just called me!!!!

AND, I just checked my lottery ticket and I won the mega millions lottery!!!!!

AND, I just got a knock at the door and I am one of those cash prize winners for life!!!!

AND, I just got a call that my birth certificate is wrong and they made a mistake – they wrote 1981 by mistake but they meant to write 1987!! So, I’m only 25!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!

AND, a pig just flew past my window!!!!!

AND…..

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(inspired by the fact I woke up to a text from my father that he won the British lottery and I wrote back saying I was having quadrouplets!! Haha!!)

I wish this 365 Challenge was an April Fool’s Day joke!!!!!!!


365 ONE: day 79…walking overload!

Day 79: March 27th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Sexy Back” by Justin Timberlake

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Apartment View”

Anything to Note =

Today was a walking overload!

It wasn’t supposed to be actually but it turned out to be. Oy-Vey!

60th Street and Lexington Avenue – to – Grand Central office

25 Columbus Circle – to – Grand Central Office

Bedford Avenue subway – t0 – Northside Piers apartment

Northside Piers apartment – to- Bedford Avenue subway

And finally home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had three appointments all over and the first I treated as my main cardio for the day. Then it made sense to walk from Columbus Circle back to the office again as there really is no good way to get there that’s faster than walking annoyingly, unless you take a cab of course, but I wasn’t going to do that. So added that to my cardio to make it super full. And then realized I had to go see this apartment to make sure all was in order from the last tenant leaving for the new tenant coming in two days, and there is no way but to walk to the pier from the subway and back out there.

Exhausted! My feet and back hurt 😦

On my feet way too much with all the walking, stairs, subway, office packing, and the excess of tunnels today going into Brooklyn and into Queens. Boo!

I also left my apartment in a hurry this morning and mis-judged how cold it was outside! So since I was walking everywhere I froze and I had to jump into a cheap store and buy another layer! Yup, that’s when the shop Strawberry comes in handy 🙂

I ended up buying a longish blue light jacket! In a size XL! Yup, it was my first pregnancy-in-mind purchase!!! I got the XL for room for growth!

CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

That freaked me out a little bit, not going to lie!

A funny thing happened though on the L train going into Brooklyn. It was packed, the kind where your head is on someone’s shoulder, you are under an arm pit, and your bag is in front of you as there is no other place for it. Well, I was also against this guy and when I stood on my tip-toes for the tunnel, my bum was exactly smooshed against his bum! Which was hilarious as I could feel it in line exactly!!! As soon as the train doors opened I flew out to avoid any confrontation with the bum man 🙂


365 ONE: day 56…long rides standing up!

Day 56: March 4th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Let’s Get Retarded” by Black Eyed Peas

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Tottenham Honour”

Anything to Note =

I had to show apartments today so had to trek around Brooklyn with a client so naturally my cardio was walking 🙂 However lots of switching of trains meant lots of trains I could NOT sit on! Oh, how I wanted to!

It always makes me laugh when I have to tell people I don’t know what I am doing. Like today, why I could not sit on any of the trains! She kept asking me to sit down and forgetting 🙂 It did make it awkward that I could not sit next to her to chat with an hour long ride there and back. People always look at you with that “Why?” face or “I don’t understand, I mean, what?”

Yup, they think I’m crazy.

I am.

I especially liked how in the middle of chatting to the client I had to go up on my tip-toes and I watched her look at me up and down with wide eyes!

Too funny.


365 ONE: day 53…Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Day 53: March 1st, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Lady Madonna” by The Beatles

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Fast-Talking Broker”

Anything to Note =

It was the first time I crossed over the bridge on the L Train to Williamsburg since I started my 365 Challenge. It wasn’t so bad on the tip-toes. I thought it would be long, but nothing compares to that stupid R Train!! So far that is the worst and longest tip-toe experience. I want to avoid that one! However, haven’t tried them all yet.

Had to show an apartment in Brooklyn to some potential tenants and one of them was Australian. So after he came and left, I had some time before the next appointment and used the Australian as inspiration for my video upload. I became an Aussie fast-talking crazy Real Estate Broker!

I also managed to do my fitness 365 in between appointments too at the apartment, and my dance of the day. I closed myself in the bedroom and pumped out The Beatles to dance to. It was a tribute to my hubby Stuart of course – the biggest Beatles fan ever – I figured I would have to dance at least once to his fav band in this challenge 🙂

I took the bus back from Brooklyn to Queens this time – it was a long ride to not be allowed to sit. And there was traffic. I sooooo wished I could sit down, just for a second. I dream of that day!!
