So, It was a busy day.
Class, which went well.
Rushing to the leasing office of an apartment my roommate and I want to look at, only to find out it was closed.
Rushing into work to grab my paycheck, which was $120 less than I thought.
Stopping by my parent's house to check in on my siblings.
Rushing to the doctor to get some tests done and get a few vaccinations updated.
Rushing back to school, where I had 2 granola bars and some baked lays for breakfast/lunch.
Meeting with my writing professor, who cleared up my questions but raised some more as well.
Going back to my parent's house to hang out with my folks for a bit.
Going home to work out and do homework, which turned into working out and then watching the West Wing for 3 hours.
It's been interesting, but the day has left me tired, without any food in my stomach, and with significantly less work done on my brief than I would like.

Well, I got some homework done, but at the cost of falling asleep last night at about 4:00...giving me about 4 hours before I had to get up again. Needless to say, today has been brutal. The upshot is that for the rest of the week, I have time to work out, get homework done, clean the apartment before vacation, and do anything else that comes up.
I gained 1.6 lbs last week, which puts me .4lbs over where I should be today. I plan on remedying that this week as I work out as much as I can. Unfortunately, other than writing in my fitness journal, which is this blog entry, I'm not going to get any of my goals done.

So, fun stuff this week. Let's start with the good.
I got a new car!!! It's a 2010 Honda Insight, which is much nicer than my 1997 Ford Explorer. I've been having a fun time playing with all of the gadgets in it, although I find myself terrified with the thought that I might accidentally wreck it.
The not so good...
I have a paper due tomorrow, which I finished, but which I don't think is very good, and one due Friday that I can't wrap my head around. The one due friday is worth a whopping 50% of my grade, in a class I did poorly in last semester. I'm terrified that I won't get it right this time either.
I worked out last thursday, and finished feeling sore form the dumbbell curls I did (90 reps total with increasing and then decreasing weight). Friday I woke up and felt fine. Saturday, when I woke up, I couldn't bend my arms. I got them working, but they were sore, and then this morning, the same thing happened.
I won't be able to work out tomorrow, which makes day #3 without working out. I don't really want to weigh in tomorrow, because I don't expect a happy sight when I look at the scale. I was over my calories burned goal for the week by 500, but went over my recommended calorie limit 3 times.
So, I persist in the hope that I can push that invisible reset button after I step on the scale tomorrow, and pick up the pace again.
Here goes nothing.

Ok...so first of all, because of the stress of school and the fact that my allergies are kicking in, I've been struggling to stay motivated. But I've done a decent job so far this week.
Second, I went to work out with my friend, who is really thin, yesterday and today, and both times, he said something that bugged me.
Yesterday he was complaining about how hard it is for him to bulk up, and he said "It's not like it is for you. When you have a lot of body fat, it is easier to build muscle. I hate being so thin!"
Now, I'm not one to judge people, and it takes a lot to piss me off usually, but complaining to the fat guy about being thin seems like a really low blow.
Then, today, he was telling me that even if I lose 50 lbs, I'll still look pretty much the same. "Not to disappoint you," he said, "but if you do manage to lose 50 lbs, you might lose like 4 inches off of your waist, but other than that, not much will change."
It's kind of hard to stay motivated when I am being told that working out won't have a noticeable effect on me.
For now, I'm just going to try to do my best to keep working out, and hopefully prove him wrong.

Well, I'm at work...which I got to 30 minutes late...but it would have been 2 hours if my friend hadn't reminded me that I start at 4, not 6.
I went and worked out with my friend today...I'm still sore from lifting sunday-tuesday...so I didn't do as much as I would have liked, but I still got in 20 minutes on the elliptical and some crunches.
This is going to be a weekend for getting homework taken care of, working, and trying to find a new car. My car is on the verge of death.
I feel pretty good so far, although I'm irritated with the poor tippers here at the bar. Hopefully business will pick up, but it isn't looking good. Oh, well, there's still the entire rest of the weekend.
