Prepared for gym...Please tell me to go!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I have three minutes before my lunch break is over, so I'll type fast. I have my gym clothes with me. I planned to go to the gym after work. But I'm feeling iffy about it now. Tired. Upset about two different issues that came up one after the other. A bit jonesy. Hot...it's really hot in here. And I kinda want to go home, open a beer and sit and stew.

Part of me says, you can do that if you promise not to smoke. The other part says, hey, you! You gotta go to the gym! Somebody tell me who to listen to and why, please!

    You need to go to the gym. You will be amazed at how much better you will feel when you are done. An dit will keep you from the beer and the cigs. Neither of which you need this evening!!

    Definitely go!! You may not want to now, or you're waffling, and even when you're there you may feel tired and hot....but the feeling of accomplishment afterward is well worth it!

  I think you should go to the gym and work off the stress.Believe me,you will feel a lot better after a good workout. I have days like that myself,in which,I am debating if I should go or not. I have been exercising for about 10 years now,on most days I have no problem going to the gym, but other times it is still a struggle. Hang in there and just do it!

Blazin' Buffalo and Ranch Doritos...

Monday, January 03, 2011

...do taste as good as thin feels.

At least, I thought so before I wolfed down about six servings...

I'll make it up at the gym in the next couple days.

I'm editing to ask...it's only almost 8. Should I go back to the gym? I did 35 minutes already, before I got into the chips. Let me know what you think while I'm thinking about it. =)

Out of the Funk

Sunday, January 02, 2011

I guess I am not totally out of the funk...Maybe I am. I had a good day today. And the sun set at 4:59 today, which means tomorrow, it will set at 5. Maybe even 5:01.

I went to the gym. I ate within my calorie range. We cooked up food so it wouldn't go bad, and it didn't. My sister, who's having a hard time, called tonight and sounded okay. I drank enough water. I'm ready to go to the gym tomorrow. Right now, I'm sort of watching "Grown Ups," but it's a little boring, so I'm typing this blog, too.

Oh, and good news that I guess I hadn't talked about. Sammy's fine. Completely fine. If you can believe that. I took him to the specialist, and they said he doesn't have the disease the other doctor said he had. They found a tumor in his abdomen, and two days later, I had it removed, and it turned out benign. Unbelievably, though, the stupid doctor that gave him the wrong diagnosis, and a very high dose of very powerful medication called and offered me an ESTIMATE on the surgery. Like, I'd use anything other than a board-certified surgeon. And he almost killed Sammy twice. I wasn't going to let him cut him open so he could finish the job.

And since he's fine, I plan to save money to take him to an ophthmologist later this year. If he were going to die soon, it doesn't make any sense, but since he's totally fine, it may be worth it. Probably they can't do anything, but just in case.

He's not eating lately, but I think he's being bratty. He'll eat if I put green beans, hot dogs, ham, and Pupperoni in with his food, but otherwise...

So everything's going to be okay. And today was good. Maybe now I'm just tired, and that's why I'm afraid to say with confidence that I'm out of my funk.

Heart Hurt

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

I felt kind of the same way today as I did yesterday, with two big differences. One, I felt really depressed, not just tired and down, but really, really sad about Sammy. Two, I didn't drag my butt to the gym. I went to the pet store to find a warming blanket for Sammy, but they only have them online, so I need to buy one tonight. I just want him to be comfortable. I feel like I have this dull ache inside, and everytime I think of it, it expands and gets stronger.

But I will go tomorrow, and I'll make up for it on Saturday. Pinky swear. On my way home, I heard on the radio that Tuesday is the worst day of the week for people. According to some study in London that had 22,000 participants. And I think that's probably right. I'd have to go through and look at my exercise minutes by day to see if that's really true, but it sounds right to me.

So, sorry Starfish. But we're doing BANGIN', anyway. I can't believe how many minutes we've gotten in the last 24 hours.

I don't want to wake Sammy to give him his medicine. I know I have to, but I hate it. Maybe my husband will do it...he likes to see Sammy's sleepy face.

    Today has been really hard for me too--& I don't have a sick animal friend, & I did exercise this morning. It's the dang weather, & the alleys & sidewalk segments that are treacherously coated with ice, & the lack of light.

Be good to yourself--get the exercise you need to help stabilize your feelings (not a cure-all, but it does help a lot!). I am praying peace for you & comfort & health for Sammy.

    I am so sorry to hear about what you are going through. I was in your shoes last year about this time with my "baby" - Casper. You need to fight to take care of yourself, too!! Hang in there. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Us other Starfish can pick up the slack until you are ready -- but don't take too long!! We do need you!!!

A'ight, I went.

Monday, December 06, 2010

I don't know why, but I did go to the gym. Maybe it was because there was nothing on TV. Maybe it was because my book was still in the car. Maybe it was because my emoticon friends are counting on me to get them over the Pacific Ocean. We're not quite yet to Honolulu (4,834 miles). And it was fine, and it felt GOOD to do what I should. And when I got home, I wasn't hungry. So I didn't eat dinner. I sat with my husband and my exchange students, but I didn't eat.

And I s'pose I'll go tomorrow. The book I'm reading on the bike is pretty good.

    I probably shouldn't say this as I'm a member of an opposing team but emoticon for you! I can't tell you how frustrating it is when I work my butt off at the gym and then see my teammates log 5 glasses of water and 0 exercise. It's enough to send me to the pantry to devour a bag of cookies. So - thank you for taking the challenge seriously- Your fellow Starfish are lucky to have you!

    Well I'm glad you ate something! And that sounds like an OK dinner to me, so who cares if it was technically "snack". Great job!

    Oh, I guess I should have mentioned the crazy-huge snack I had while I was sitting on the couch looking for a TV program. It was basically dinner, but without the family. I had a burrito on a WW tortilla with brown rice, beans, cheese and hot sauce, then, for added measure, I had celery with peanut butter. Something crazy like over 600 calories. So if I'd eaten "dinner," I'd've gone over.
