Working my ass off!

No, I'm not at some fancy Spa.
I'm just s working my ass off......at work.
Next time we talk....my ass will be sufficiently worked off.  
And, I'm not talking about weight loss or exercise.
Before I go,  I'll leave you with a shot of me enjoying some down time this past weekend as I prepared myself for working my ass off.....


 Funny thing, in the wee hours of this morning as I climbed out of bed to take care of details, details, details before I had to go out into the darkness to take care of more details, details, details,  I came to the realization that I just can't do 200 things at once and do any of them well.
So, I didn't blog.  
Instead, I spent a few extra minutes in the shower.
As my day droned on and the meetings and emails and demands kept hammering away at me, I tried to make peace with the fact that  the best thing I could do  was to give myself the permission to do what I need to do to get me through the mania of  these moments in my work life.
So, smack in the middle of the day--instead of coming right back to my desk after a meeting, I took a detour to my car---and I snuck a smoke while listening to a little Bruce. 
As I drove home after a day that lasted ions, I realized that I had to take advantage of these last moments of clarity....because it might not happen again until some time next week.
Something had to give if I was going to get it all done in Judi style.  
There was no way I would ever make it through with myself in tact unless I took some drastic action. 
So, that's what I decided to do.  
Knowing that you would forgive me for giving up my blog time to attend to my vanity, I decided that as soon as I got home, I'd give you the news--I'm going to take a little blog break.
Because, you know,  if a girl can't get her beauty sleep, she needs time to apply enough make up to cover those dark circles from all the work and little sleep.  
So, I'm going to steal my blogging time to work on my face.  
Because we all know there's never an excuse for looking anything less than well made up.
Not even a stretch of death-defying working my ass off.  


I knew you'd understand!


I'll be back......promise.

Weight loss has to come first before toning and definition can be attained. The best lower core workout are those that include each of these aspects and focus on overall fitness of your body.

Take care of yourself! You know I don't blog every day anymore, just when I have time to (and I don't read every day, but you know I catch up with you eventually, so keep blogging when you want to). ((hugs))
