Winsday!

About time for an upbeat post!

Yesterday was pretty great in a lot of small ways. Look, I generally don’t get a ton of wins in life, so it’s nice to get a few little wins in a single day. Positivity’s the key to happiness, right?

Winsday (HA!) started with a tidy resolution to Tuesday’s DVD debacle. This morning Kelly told me that she called Tracy Anderson’s customer service line and they’re sending a new disc, completely free of charge! We have to wait 7-10 business days, but we could use a break anyway.

Can't wait to do this wackness again!

For my workout, I did Jillian Michael’s Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism DVD, which kicked my butt HARD. But I got through the whole thing with only 2 mini-breaks, which is a lot better than the last time I tried it, so I’m very proud of myself.

Then there was my epic parking job at the train station on my way to Philly! Backed in perfectly in line after a single attempt, no need to straighten out or anything!

Like a pro.

My editing internship was generally just successful yesterday. We’d had a pretty bad day Tuesday that set us back on a music video we’re trying to finish, but the problems got ironed out and everything’s back on track. And I got to work on a really awesome scene from our primary project (a short film) which allowed me to work with motion changes and blurs and other fun stuff. Then the director told me he wants to work on putting together my reel, which made me giddy for a lot of nerdy reasons but mostly because it’ll help me get some actual jobs after the internship. w00t!

Came home and had a nice chat with Annie for a while – she got a job! She’s really excited about it, and now she’ll be making more money than me so she can’t complain about being poor anymore!

I also ate very clean during the day – an apple for breakfast, celery with almond-cashew-peanut butter for a snack (yes, they make a butter from mixed nuts, and yes, it is delicious!) and a pretty salad for lunch (tuna, lettuce, tomato, purple squash, red pepper, corn, and a crunched up rice cake in place of croutons because I need to get rid of them before they go bad. I never have dressing on my salad because it’s gross-tasting and does unmentionable things to my tummy) – so I glommed on a guilty-pleasure dinner with my all-time favorite pizza from Gallery and Burlesque on Starz, followed by Dance Moms and Toddlers and Tiaras.

All-in-all, a lot of tiny things built up to a great Wednesday. Here’s hoping for a… Conquersday? Alright, Thursday’s a hard one to make a pun out of. You try to do better.

    I will always complain about being poor. Can’t stop won’t stop!
    But I’m glad I could make your “Winsday” more successful. Last night was fun no matter how bad of a movie Burlesque was…
