The Epic Journey to Save Middle Earth with Mitt Romney

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I am continuing my Lord of the Rings marathon tonight. I figured it was a good night to do it. There isn't anything I want to watch on TV any way... I do intend on watching the Presidential Debate, but that hasn't started yet. Of course, we all know what is going to happen... I will see Mitt Romney on tv, then when i sleep tonight, I will have a whacked out sex dream with him in it. It never fails. He won't get out of my head! You think he would at least put some clothes on while he violates my sleep!

In other news, I managed to pull it off today. I went directly from a 12 hour over night shift at work to the gym, worked out HARD for 50 mins, came home, got ready and went to the library to volunteer the rest of the day. I only made it until about 1:30 until I started to nod off in the chair. I can home and got the laundry started and chores done. I did doze off for about half an hour but I intend on going to bed at a decent time so I can get up early tomorrow and exercise before I go to meet friends.

It is amazing how exercise has become the part of my day that I look forward to. I really enjoy it! I FINALLY have an appointment with a trainer next Wednesday at 11 after my doctor's appointment. I don't know if we are going to do actual training or what, but I am looking forward to getting this ball rolling. Like I said in a previous blog, I think because I have concrete goals, training is going to be easier. I don't think it will be physically easier, quite the contrary, but I think it will be easier for my trainer to develop a program for me to follow.

Tomorrow I am meeting friends for dinner. It is Marc's birthday and we are going to Outback with his mom and dad. I already have a menu plan in place (6oz sirloin and steamed veggies) so I feel confident in going out. We are going to go back to Marc's place after for cake. He requested an Angel Food cake, so that is easy enough. I haven't decided if I will have any or not. We will see when the time comes.

Not much else to report. My cat is hanging out on the couch beside me and he is all cute and fat and happy. I don't know where Lucy kitten is... she likes to lay under the bed.

I think that is all for now

    I came home from trivia to find the channel I was recording the debate on entirely black. Don't know how much I got or if I even care. Happy to report I NEVER dream about Mitt Romney! Love those cute, fat, happy cats!

Cozy Food

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I am in the mood for cozy food. I want soup and oatmeal. I don't know why I want those things, but that is what sounds good to me.

I have been searching the stores for Maypo, but it seems like no stores in my area carry it. I bought Great Value Sugar Free Maple Oatmeal instead, but I know it isn't as good as Maypo.

I am working until 7am, then I am volunteering at the library. I don't plan on sleeping until later on in the day. I thought about doing a little "cheat" and going and getting a coffee around 5am for a good buzz, hitting the gym, then coming home to get ready for the library. If I just stay up the rest of the day, then I can turn in early.

I think that is what I am going to do.

    Hope you were able to make it through and make it to the gym. I hope you at least made it without passing out from lack of sleep emoticon

End of the Month Stats

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Total pounds lost - 5.8
Total Fitness miss - 1005
Total Miles Rode - 154

I am pretty pleased with those!

I went for a pretty awesome ride today. I decided since I didn't have enough time to make it to the trail, I would ride on an old back road near my house. The ride itself was a little under 13 miles, and I did it in 77 miss. There were some hills I had to pedal up, and I am pleased with myself that I made it up those without walking my bike. I wouldn't have been able to do that a year ago... heck, I wouldn't have been able to do that three months ago! I am going to be a bit full of myself and say I am proud of accomplishing that!

The personal trainer called me back today and guess what? I missed her call! However, I have a game plan. I am going to call her back on Wednesday, she gets in at 8am, so I am going to call her about 8:15 - that way I won't miss her! I think since I have a specific goal in mind, training will be easier. I don't mean easier as in physically, but I think it will be easier for the trainer to come up with a program to help me meet my current goal.

My co-worker had her baby. She had a little boy. I am going to be covering her hours for a while of 7pm-7am. I usually work 5-5.

My finger still hurts where I took a chunk out of it yesterday... it started bleeding again today and bleed for like another hour. It sucks

My goal for October is to basically surpass the numbers I set last month.

I think that is all for now

Lazy Sunday

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Today was a lazy Sunday. I woke up to crappy weather so I didn't really feel like doing much. I went to the store and bought a few things and came home to work on chores. I decided to have a Lord of the Rings Marathon while I worked in the kitchen and on laundry.

I decided to have soup for lunch and ended up take a hunk out of my finger on the can. It bled for an hour. It still hurts.

I was excited to watch the new season of Once Upon a Time, and also start a new show 666 Park Ave. It looks like it is going to be pretty awesome.

I think that is all for now

Mud on the Mountain

Friday, September 28, 2012

www.mudonthemountain.com/

This is my goal. I don't think I am in shape enough to try it this year, however, this is my goal for next year. The held another one is May 2012, so I am hoping they do another one in May 2013. If they do, I am going to do it. I am about half certain that I could complete it now, BUT (and here is the big BUT) I want to keep up with everyone else. Sadly, I don't have anyone to do the race with me, so I will be going solo. I think it will be a good time though!

Not much to report for today. My boyfriend took me out to lunch. We went to Wendy's. I got a small chili and a side salad. I ate 1/2 the chili and 1/4 of the salad.

Then I came to work, and there was lots of yummy stuff around... I am doing a pretty good job at resisting it. I did ditch my chicken stuff I brought from home to enjoy a bit of my co-worker's homemade chili. It was fantastic! He also adds a lot of veggies to it, used Venison instead of beef and used dry beans instead of canned. I know that it was also very nutritious!

I am looking forward to hitting the bike trail tomorrow -- I would like to go for 15 miles tomorrow. Should be a piece of cake!

I think that is all for now!

    If 15 miles is a piece of cake, why not try for more.
