You are never too old for comic books

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I am watching The Punisher. I love the movie and I love the comic book.

I have always liked comic books. There have been times in my life that the only thing that offered me any type of happiness has been comic books. I have never been an avid collector, but I have been an avid reader. I never collected them. When I was finished with them I would pass them on to someone else who would enjoy them as much as I.

A guy I went to school with (we were not close friends, just in some classes together) was found dead this morning. He passed away sometime during the night of a heart attack. He as a little less than a year older than me. That scares me. I mean, he is not the first person to die that I went to school with. All of those deaths however, have been from accidents, suicides and drug over doses. None of them have been related to a health problem like that. I am the same age.

I think that is part of the reason I am trying to hard to lose weight and to get healthy is I don't want to have a heart attack at the age of 31. I really like my life, and I want to enjoy it.

We are taking Leroy to another vet for a second opinion. I am really thinking he has feline asthma. I was watching videos on Youtube of cats having asthma attacks, and Leroy exhibits all of those signs. There has to be something more we can do for the little guy. I am willing to do anything I need to, so that he is happy and healthy. I love him.

I weigh in tomorrow and of course I am a little nervous. Once again, I have been doing everything right (except going to the gym this week, I was really lazy on that) but we will see how things work out.

I need to get back to the gym starting tomorrow. I admit that I didn't go at all this week, I don't really have an excuse. I wish I did, but I don't. I figure with a weeks worth of rest, my body won't be used to anything I have been doing and will respond better? Ok, maybe not, but it is wishful thinking.

I think that is all for now


TastyKakes and Snack Crackers

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I don't know why I love TastyKakes so much. I don't think I have ever had a TasyKake I didn't like. Same with snack crackers. I love those things. They are horrible for you, and when you really think about it the idea of cheese and peanut butter together really isn't appealing, until the put it in a little package and call it Toast-chee. Then it is irresistible

In other news, I have decided that I am going to attempt to broil steaks this weekend. I have never used the broiler, so I am kind of excited to try it. I am looking forward to spending a nice weekend with my boyfriend since we both have off. I don't really know what we are going to do, but it will just be nice to spend some time together.

I got on the scale today to weigh the cat. Good news all around. It seems I am down 2 more pounds, and kitty is up to 4 pounds. I don't really trust my scale so much. I am not sure how in tune with the Weight Watchers meeting center scale it is, but if I lost some more weight I am happy about that.

I think that is all for now

3 pounds down clown!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

I lost 3 pounds! I am so excited! The weirdest part was, I was really sick and only went to the gym once, and i lost three pounds?

I have been really sick. It has been horrible. I am just now starting to feel better. Today was the first day I wasn't chained to my Neti Pot every 2 hours.

We went today and got a pick-up load of mulch. I did a lot of shoveling. I pretty much shoveled the entire load. My boyfriend was spreading it around and I shoveled it into the wheelbarrow and dumped it off. I actually like doing that. I did enjoy myself, but it was hard work. I also got a wicked sunburn that hurts.

Not to keep whining, but... my arm hurts. Last week, I got stung by a wasp, not once, not twice, but three times. My arm swelled up, I was bleeding, it hurt... but anyway, my arm still hurts. I thought it was the bee sting, but it isn't. I must have done something to my muscle, because the top of my arm hurts.

Ohhh... and after all of that back breaking yard work, I washed my Jeep. Look how pretty

Don't be a drag... just be a queen!

Sunday, May 08, 2011

No, really... don't be a drag!

That song has been on the radio twice since I came to work. I really like Lady GaGa, but after hearing her same song over and over it gets a little tiring. That isn't her fault. That is the radio station's fault.

I have managed to catch a cold again. It is retched. I hate it. The only thing that has offered me any type of relief has been the Neti Pot. It is a little strange to get used to, but once I did, it is great. It has really helped my throat. Last night was the first night I actually slept in a few days. I didn't sleep that much, but it was better than what I had been getting.

I took a sneak peak on my scale this morning, and it says I am down 4 pounds, but I don't know how accurate those scales really are. I am interested to see what my weight is tomorrow. I know I have only been to the gym once this week, and until I am feeling better, will not be going. I don't work out when I am sick. Not only because it makes me feel worse, but I also don't out of respect for the other people at the gym. I don't want to be around sick people, so I extend the same courtesy to others.

Once again, the Neti Pot is awesome
