Grrrrr...I'm totally stressin!

Thursday, July 31, 2008


so I thought that today I would be at the doc's office...nope it's on Thursday! It's already bad enough that I've been a day behind all week long! I'm totally stressed out, over eating and not working out. My stomach has been messing with me, I cut the bottom of my foot and I got a sick baby. Let's not talk about the rest of it...

I've got a million things on my mind and I'm feeling that feeling...the one that says "You got it all to do but you know you can't focus on more than one thing hon!"

It's so true, Dh and I were just talking about it. My writing is coming back into focus and it's taking up a lot of my time. Not only did the death of my writing friend bring me back to the site, but I realized that just like on here, there are a lot of people who look up to me (why is beyond me...) and soon as I got there I had people emailing me and all, asking if I would read this, review that, sending their outlines, character charts and yada. HOLD UP!!!

With being away from the comp, I'm at the t.v. Yes, I had to plug it in, it's been undone for months now and it was kinda fun to put my legs up and watch some t.v. But, with that comes me watching my fav. shows, Law and Order and that brings me back to my novel!!! GRRRRR It's a novel that is influenced by the show.

This leads to constant day dreaming and mentally setting up plots, dialogue and the sort. This of course means that nothing else is getting done...see the issue now???

I'm reading blogs, not responding, getting messages and responding but not as fast as I would like. I'm staying focused on my new team but nothing else and that would include tracking my food, exercise and blah, blah, blah...

I'm done...totally tired...

Night everyone!

    if i could get onto the team i'd help you out...lol..but sparkpeople hates me they wont let the invite go through. *sniff, sniff*..lol. It does sound like you have a lot going on just take a deep breath and take it one thing at a time. When i'm writing i set a page limit. I have to complete six pages a day. they don't all have to be good but they do have to be complete. I set time limits for everything including sparkpeople. Of course i'm on all day but that's because i never shut it off...lol. I'll do one hour for exercise; one hour for blogging; one hour for e-mail returns; that sort of thing. And remember us writers are neurotic to begin with..lol.

I know injuries can be set backs but you are smart you know what exercises you CAN do to keep your metabolism in high gear. You know what foods to eat and you know stress is the number one problem when it comes to weight loss. Let's find solutions to your stress and move forward...I am here to give you support even when you don't want it .. ha ha..The Mother has Spoken emoticon

I got my feet up

Monday, July 28, 2008

Yes, I got my feet up. Have been sitting with them up just about the entire day. I can't believe it. I was actually sitting there reading, watching t.v. and folding clothes and thinking to myself, "You have got to get moving, how do people sit for so long???"

But, I know that my knees need it. I totally felt it yesterday during the workout. The difference between yesterday's workout and last week's workout...wow. I mean I could tell that they were...healing I guess you can say.

I have to heal, that is plain and simple. On Wednesday I go to the doctors. I have to prep for that because I know I'm going to freak out. Got to get my meds together for my anxiety and all.

    I am glad you are taking care of yourself. Getting healthy and getting fit is more about listening to your body than taking risks. Go slow, go strong, build yourself up to a stronger better you. I can still see the skinny you racing up those stairs like rocky and screaming all the way....I DID IT!!!! I know you can and you will make it!

    hey girl even Rocky took some time heal in between Rocky One and Rocky Two. Don't cripple yourself that's the opposite of what you are going for. I take it you have the military insurance the Tri-Care? I would tell that doctor what you are all about with these challenges and see if there is a knee brace or even shoe orthotics you can use to take some of the pressure off. In the meantime you need to just HEAL don't go getting all handicap on us for life.

    I agree with Stacey, you need to heal. I hope everything goes well at the doctors. That you are able to have one that listens to your concerns and considers everything, not just the numbers ;) Hopefully you will come back from that visit better prepared for the challenges you'll lead in the future

    Hey Doll,
I know that this challenge is supposed to push you, but it is not supposed to cripple you. We won't think any less of you if you don't finish. Your knees need to recoup. You need to heal. To get better. Relax. Remember doctors are here to help you not hurt you. They are going to help you. You can do it. You are Rocky. You are one tough bird!! Get better! That is what is important.
Hugs to ya, Stacey

I'm still pretending to be alive...

Sunday, July 27, 2008

Yes, I am...

Okay it's nearly midnight, I'm working on just hours of sleep for the past few days and to top that off, I'm in pain during it so let me "try" to keep this short. No, really I'm gonna do it.

Did laundry at the mat. 2 tall baskets, 3 short baskets and 2 tubs worth...a total of like 18 loads due to not going in last week. All taken to the car, from the car to the mat and then due to the pain of it all, all taken WET, put into baskets, carried back to car and loaded. They are still in the car (got dryer at house) and are slowly going down the stairs and into the dry and back up the stairs...You get the point.

100+ of a million different exercises done.

Attempted abs routine but once on the floor for the reverse crunch I heard a pop and 3 different areas, left hip, pelvic and right knee. I then attempted to get off the floor and after several mins gave up.

So I thought: did a 10 min standing core workout, 5 min sitting core work out and a 25 mins all body circuit...

Constance kill me now...Yikes...Lunges, side lunges...squats...all with weights...jumping jacks, skipping rope...I'll stop cus I can already hear you all yelling "What is wrong with you woman!!!"

But, I was okay at first, my knee's have improved some, but I soon realized that I couldn't go down low. So I went as low as I could go without pain, I watched my form and I KEPT MOVING NO MATTER WHAT and I'm now sweaty like a man, shaking and jumping into bed without a shower cus I can barely stand.

I can honestly say I'm flustered 100% I'm sick of the popping, crunching, snapping and pain.

Ack, I said I was keeping this short, no midnight rambling!!

I Hurt....Stupid playboy, beach blond, barbie videos...

Friday, July 25, 2008

Okay, so during week 2 of the Rocky challenge I slipped, twisted and fell on my knee. It's been killing me since. Let's not talk about the fact that the week before the challenge started, I had just taken my other knee out of an ace bandage due to issues with it.

I tried week 3, it didn't work. I'm looking over week 4, I would have to replace just about every thing in there. *sigh*.

So, I am...

I'm not doing the full circuits but I am replacing things, doing them at slower speeds, with less weight and making sure that I'm not up and down from the floor.

I'm hurting.

Today I did a whole arm routine for 20 mins. Then did 20 mins worth of arms, abs and legs and followed that with a mile walk at home. I intend to add more to this but I've been having a rough week.

I'm not kicking myself for the workouts though, it's the other things that are going to get me in trouble.

Okay, I'm at home with 3 kids and I end up having to do it all by myself. So my landlady is coming. She might have to get into the attic so I had to carry down two sofa chairs...down the stairs. One I had to carry down 3 times cus I couldn't get it through the entry way and had to take it back up and switch it around until it worked. I'm talking about...lazy boy type of chairs...up and down at least 20 steps. *sigh*. Lets not forget moving the entertainment center, 2 t.v.s, a few bins up and down the stairs and then mopping my kitchen, dinning room and living room floor by hand...yes, on my knees.

I know...Kill me now.

It's 12:37 and I was mopping until 11:20, moved the baskets of laundry into the living room and sorted all 3 until 12 and then my walking.

I hurt...and tomorrow I'll be moving more furniture, hand washing more floors and cleaning all of upstairs where I "store" things so that she can get to the attic.

But I can say this much, after the Rocky challenge, everything I'm doing on these videos and such is child's play!

That and I'm sick of bleach blonds who are white yet darker than I am. And how the heck is it that you can wear a 2 piece swimsuit, and have the girls sit up that high and workout and not have an issue??? If my girlies were that big I have to ace bandage them to my chest and move sloooowly.

This is what I get for working out to "Envy Girls" and how the heck was I supposed to know that "the girls next door" were playboy models???

Really, never again. All I could think of was how much surgery I'm going to need to have my belly button hooked back to my belly and my boobs put back onto my chest.

Hey, at least I found a work out video that my dh won't complain about. Well as long as I workout to it behind him...wouldn't want to get in the way of the have nakid beach blonds...

Don't fat people make workout videos? I mean at least when you can't touch your toes due to your belly being in the way you don't feel so bad after watching your trainer strain to reach their knees. At the very least you don't want to strangle barbie and you won't become unfocused by the fact that her double D breast refuse to bounce while in that triangle strapped top.

*sigh* going to bed now!

    Hey hey hey. Now don't go picking on us blondes. lol. Some of us are naturally that "talented". hahaha. I have DD and I am still trying to find a sports bra to "fit" me. That quick 3 min jog really hurts. I have a sports bra but it doesn't support that well. I second that motion, they don't move because they aren't real. I just wish mine were that perky, they never have been. So my sister and I are going to (when she turns 50, in about 19 years) dye our hair platinum blonde and get our boobs done. We of course will recoup some place awesome together. hahaha.
Take care of yourself and don't try to over do it. Ya I know I am talking to deaf ears but it was worth a shot. lol. Thanks for the laughs. You are too funny.

    I am glad you are taking care of your injuries and being smart...ok climbing up and down stairs with furniture and the like is NOT the best on ones knees but....ok stepping off soap box, I know you gotta do what you gotta do!
OMG what a myriad of visuals!! Laughs. I gave my boobs up for lent and don't have boob envy. We were all created and designed the way we are for a reason. I for one love myself from the inside out and not the other way around. My business partner is a size 2-4 and she does all the modeling for our vintage style shows. I get to hear people ohhh an ahhh over her figure every time we do a show. It used to bother me, not any more in fact I say it before anyone at the show has a chance.
You ladies are too funny!!!

    those boobs are fake; hence the non bouncing phenom. Let me tell you my boobs ARE that big and i have to wear two sports bras and an exercise top to keep the girls from bouncing all over the place. D cups do not do well with vigorous activity. Trust me i know. As for the playboy beach blond barbie dolls..eh i've alway preferred brunettes; strong; challenging women who know what they want and go for it. Kind of like you Kat. I always feel sorry for those other girls..like awww you poor pathetic thing, you'll always need a man to take care of you..how sad.

  I am a huge fan of Richard Simmons. Yes the music is cheesy LOL but you can always turn it down once you get used to the routine. He isn't out for flashy gimmicks and is fun and basic.

I would say slow down and relax LOL but I may as well stand in front of the mirror and say it to myself right?
