No Celery Please – NYC Edition!

Something’s Gotta Give

My Weekly Schedule:

Monday – Just work (whew – start off the week easy)

Tuesday – Work, then Yoga

Wednesday – Work, then Derby Practice

Thursday – Work, then Climbing

Friday – Work, Grocering at the WalMart, Derby Practice

Saturday – Gotta fit in a visit with the folks somewhere

Sunday – Derby practice in the AM, then Climbing and Yoga in the afternoon (THAT’S a full day).


I think I am over scheduled.

I think something has to go.

It’s not going to be the derby.

I love derby.

I like climbing.  I like yoga.

But I’m starting to think that it’s just too much time spent shuttling hither and yon.

It’s 30 minutes from my house to the gym…  That’s an hour total commute Tuesday, Thursday, Twice on Sunday (Derby practice is held there in the am).

If I come home from work, I can pop in a workout DVD and be done in an hour.  And I can easily do yoga in my home with a DVD.

I feel bad… because my friend and derby team-mate owns the climbing gym…  and I hate to cancel my membership.  But I am starting to feel more and more like that is going to have to happen.

Derby practice is getting more hard-core.

I am doing far harder and more strenuous workouts on my days when I don’t have anything scheduled (Bob Harper is a mean, mean man…  I highly recommend getting your ass kicked by him).

This is just the beginning of the “thinking about it” process, but I am pretty sure I know where it’s going.

If I don’t stop running flat out, I am going to burn out… and that’s no good to me or anyone.

    What the heck???

    Okay, I’m confused…

    I use Google Reader.

    I subscribe to this blog and to another blog that happens to be titled “Something’s Gotta Give.”

    Asked I checked the reader this morning I clicked on each unread hence new post. When I clicked the link to this post, up came this post. With all the green and the title bar reading “No Celery Please” I was confused. I was expecting to see the other blog I read.

    I feel dizzy now.

    I will go back to my boring little life.

    • That’s a terrible thing to have happen to you first thing in the morning!

    You would have so much more derby time if you got rid of that thing called work.
