I am....Procrastinating...Again

I've seen this on a couple of blogs I follow and thought I'd play along....since I'm sure everyone who stops by here really wants to know what's outside my window and what I'm doing at this very moment, which is really procrastinating because I should be writing--make that re-writing my novel--or at the very least, I should be on the treadmill. Although the real reason I'm not on the treadmill is because I'm going to my Pilates class in a short while and on Wednesday morning I did the treadmill before I went to Pilates and that turned out to be a huge mistake. When the class ended I sped home and promptly threw up in my kitchen sink. Yes, the Pilates workout was challenging, but I think the real culprit was the treadmill workout prior to the class. Too much exercise in too short a time. My body can't take it! This is all very funny, too, because if you saw me (and for those of you who see me on a regular basis understand) you wouldn't know I walked on a treadmill or did Pilates or yoga. You'd think I sat on a couch and ate chips all day, which I swear I don't.
Anyway...on to the Q&A procrastination tool. And thanks to Wendy and Janna for sharing their answers!

Outside my window...it's cold and gray, but I can finally see my grass again.

I am thankful for...my family, my health, my dogs.

From the kitchen...the dishes say, "Clean us up! Put us away!"

I am wearing...blue Adidas sweat pants, my gray and black University of Colorado sweatshirt, Asics running shoes.

I am creating...an excuse for not writing.

I am going...to Pilates class.

I am reading...The Zookeepers' Wife, The Friday Night Knitting Club and Saving Fish From Drowning.

I am hoping...I don't throw up after Pilates today.

I am hearing...the hum of my PC tower.

Around the house...piles need to be de-cluttered and the girls' school papers need to be put away.

One of my favorite things...how my daughters' hair smells when it's freshly washed.

Plans for the weekend...dinner with friends tonight, church on Sunday (I swear we're going this week!).

Hi! :) Oh my goodness, do I hear you on the procrastination. It's just so much easier than sitting down to actually write. I'm trying to be better. Honest.

And I recently bought a Pilates DVD to try at home. You know what? I'm procrastinating. I haven't popped it in and donned my exercise shorts yet...

Over here from Angie's place! :)

I used to be a personal trainer - and lawd! sometimes people do over-do it -- being sick at your stomach is definitely a sign *laugh* -- I once overhead another trainer tell someone "you haven't worked out hard enough unless you are throwing up!" I wanted to smack that trainer...good lord!

I love pilates - and miss doing it - dang it all, you have given me the "go do it, girl" itis...*smiling*

glad I stopped by!

Thanks for stopping by...now GIT TO WORK ON THAT WIP, GIRL! Ask Janna and Kat -- I have pointy cowboy boots that will kick your bahonkus. I'm doing revisions now, so I feel your pain. Ewwwww)

I always attack what has to be done so procrastination only has meaning for me in the way others express it.

strange because we're both pisces too.
