I am not least I don't think I am....yet

So today my mom and I went to lunch and then saw a movie.....The Hannah Montana Movie. Yes my dear friends, I saw the movie about a 16 year old girl who leads a double life as both a mega pop star and a down home country girl. Several people have mentioned that I should be ashamed of also came up that maybe it would have sounded better if I had crafted some version of the story which involved me taking my niece Kate to see opposed to me suggesting it and going with my mom on a Wednesday afternoon. Well, it's too late for that kind of story now, I went, I saw, I even tapped my foot along to a couple of the songs....and I might have teared up at one point. Ok, now I'm a little ashamed.

System Failure

So when I work the noon to close shift at work I leave my house 3 hours early so I can drive to the gym, workout, shower and go to work. This means I have to be organized enough to pack my work clothes and any shower stuff I need. I have become pretty good at this I have a special little bag of toiletries, I leave my towel by my gym bag, blah blah blah. Well today the system failed. I had a really good workout, a refreshing shower, put on my work clothes and then realized I forgot to pack my shoes! How I managed to forget them is beyond me, but after surveying myself in all black with my running shoes on I knew my managers would not let that fly so I headed to Target in hopes of buying some cute yet inexpensive shoes to tide me over. As usual Target came through. So I am now the proud owner of these little babies, only in black.

So as you all know I work in a mall, as in there is a food court nearby. Maybe once a week I get my lunch from Chick-fil-a where I always get the same thing. Number 5 with an 8-pack of nuggets, a large diet coke and side salad instead of fries. Every time I open up that little box of nuggets I count how many are in there.....just in case I scored the box with the extra nugget.

So a guy picked up some hours in the juniors department tonight. I got off at 6pm so I did not really get to work with him, but the few minutes I did spend with him were interesting. First of all I don't know why he picked up these hours as he is not really supposed to go in the female only dressing rooms to clean up after people.....I think parents would probably have a problem with a 45+ year old man walking in on their daughters. But, the most scary moment was right before I left when he asked me whether he would have to actually dress and undress people as part of his job......seriously, this happened. As usual this job never ceases to periodically boggle my mind.

So since returning to Texas I have focused on a limited number of things. One, working/finding a job and two, working out. I figured it was a way to get out of the house, release some stress and feel better about myself. The good news is so far so good, all those things have been/are being accomplished. I have been trying to find a realistic "body type" that I want to achieve, I mean in a perfect world I would like to resemble Jennifer Aniston (especially the hair part), Anne Hathaway or maybe even Kristin Heigl....I realize those are two very different looking people. BUT, in an effort to reach my goals I have chosen a less lofty ideal body type, but one that I feel is achievable and not too shabby. This one is coming from left field, but here it goes.........and the winner is!
I know, a strange pick, but let's face it the Hudson is fit yet curvaceous, not a bad combo. Anyway, I know this is a very conceited blog, but hey, at least I blogged. :)
