The Cat in the Hat (photo)

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I spent the evening at the Library where I volunteer. I dressed as the Cat in the Hat and handed out treats and goodie bags to the kids. It was such a fun time!

CrocPot Disaster...

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=672711


I have made this before and it was awesome... I put everything in the croc before I left this morning and was looking forward to coming home and having some.. well, I started it out on high, and I asked my boyfriend to turn it to low when he left (which he did) needless to say... it got burnt.

Lucky for me, the middle of it was salvageable, and thankfully I eat tiny portions anyway, so, I am still able to get 3 days worth of dinners out of it.

I decided for dinner I would make another "pizza" which is pretty much a tortilla w/ sauce and cheese. Not really pizza, but not bad either.

My arms are sore today from working out yesterday, but not overly horrible. I am going to the gym tomorrow to do ST and Cardio. I am not sure how I am going to get my running intervals in, but I will figure it out. I might go out in the gym parking lot and walk and run around it? I thought about using the treadmill, but I think it is better to run on a solid or rather non-moving surface. You know what I mean? if I am running outside, I can always stop and I don't run the risk of flying off the back of the treadmill and smacking into the wall. I kid you not when I say the walls behind the treadmill are dented in. I wouldn't be the first one to do it... but you know...

Not much else to report!

    When we moved into our new house, my boyfriend's mom gave us a crocpot. I've been afraid to use it when I'm not home!! Glad to hear there was just some minor burning on the bottom.

I am overweight!!!!

Monday, October 22, 2012

I got on the scales this morning and I am officially overweight! My BMI is 29.6 which puts me slightly under the obese range! I never thought I would be so happy about being overweight!!

I met with Olivia today and my workout was awesome. We did various weight exercises for the first half, and then we did cardio intervals for the next half. I have been wanting to run, and she helped me do that. She was right there with me showing me proper form and helping me as we ran around the gym. I can't even begin to describe how awesome I thought it was that she worked with me on that.

Most trainers I have had in the past completely ignore my wants and do what they think is best. Olivia isn't like that at all. She knows that I want to do Mud on the Mountain more than anything, and running is part of that. She is making sure that I am ready for all aspects of it.

I think that is all for now!

An Update of Magnificent Proportions

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Monday 10/15 - Met with my new trainer Olivia. We had an awesome workout. She had me do the exercises and made sure my form was correct. I have realized I am no where near as fit as I thought. Worked 7pm-7am

Tuesday 10/16 - it is even more evident I am no where near as fit as I thought when I woke up and couldn't walk. My legs were burning with pain. I did manage a 10 mile bike ride, but it was MISERABLE - I am pretty sure there were tears at some point. Worked 7pm-7am

Wednesday 10/17 - still sore. My thighs are BURNING with pain. I didn't work out. It hurt. On another note, I had some friends over for the premier of American Horror Story. I made us dinner (pepper steak, brown rice, spinach artichoke dip and pumpkin pie without the pie) and we watched the show. It was very enjoyable. Still sore

Thursday 10/18 - I spent most of the day volunteering at the library. I made up the Halloween goodie and treat bags we are going to be giving out this year. Each goodie bag includes a pencil, eraser, book mark, spider ring, a few stickers, and some other little scary trinket. The treat bags include two funsized candy bars. I also have a few bags made up with sugar free candy as well. I admit, I ate a 3 Musketeers bar and found it... gross. I have lost my taste for that, which I think, is a very good thing! I then went out to my parents house for dinner. Mother made Lasagne, salad and rolls. I had a 1/2 cup serving of lasagne and some salad. I did not eat a roll. For desert she made mini pies and had ice cream. I licked at a tablespoon of ice cream, but honestly it wasn't that great to me. I went home and made another round of Pumpkin Pie without the Pie and finished up some household chores. I didn't work out this day either, but I am starting to feel better!

Friday 10/19 - Woke up and it was the first day all week my legs weren't screaming in pain! Whoo Hooo! The boyfriend and I went shopping. I bought a new comforter and blanket for my bed. We went out to dinner at Applebees and I got a wonderful under 550 Calorie meal of Steak, shrimp and veggies. I only ate about half and took the rest with me. We went to see Paranormal Activity 4. It was horrible. Honestly, all of the Paranormal Activity movies have been stupid, but this one was extremely stupid. I guess because I know none of that stuff actually exists is why I think it is ridiculous. We have gone to see all of the other Paranormal movies, so, it just seemed like a good idea to see this one. I didn't work out today either.

Saturday 10/20 - worked. I don't have much else to say except I worked, and I never work out on weekends I work because I am too tired from lack of sleep (usually can't sleep till around 3-4 am, and am up at 5:30) When I get home Saturday night, I eat, shower, watch a little TV while my hair dries a bit, then go to bed. I am usually in bed no later than 10.

Sunday 10/21 - I am still working. I will be here until 7 tonight, then home to watch my shows. After those, bed time... have to get up early to meet with Olivia.

I am hoping I have a better workout week for the upcoming one that the last one

I think that is all for now

    Wow, you had a busy week! I hope you are not as sore this week. My first week of workouts at the Y and I was miserable, but it was crazy how much easier it was the 2nd week. emoticon
