Oh yeah!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Beat my time. 9:48 mile. Wanna get it down a little more and start going longer and longer...then cut more time. 6 weeks ago, I couldn't run a 15 minute mile. That's a hell of an improvement. I'm pretty proud.

10 pounds down!

Monday, June 30, 2014

Down 10 pounds--officially. emoticon Also, I finally got my 1 mile run down to 10 minutes. I've never been a good runner, so that's a HUGE accomplishment for me. Yesterday, I warmed up with the mile run, then did legs. Lunges...squats...leg presses...lunges...more lunges...I HATE lunges. My legs hate me today. It hurts to walk and stand and sit. LOL Oh well, it'll pass in a day or two.

I had another job interview that I thought went really well. The owner said he liked me and I seemed like a good person. He had me sit with another employee for a few minutes to see how quickly I could be trained. I heard her tell the owner that I was "good and would be easy to train". Then I got an email that they wouldn't be offering me a position. I don't know if it was a salary thing, or the fact that I'm a military spouse. My marital status really works against me in the job search. HR people constantly ask about it even though they are NOT allowed to. It's not like I can refuse to answer or tell them they can't ask me that. I'm screwed either way. I don't mind the moving that comes with the Army, but I hate the job search and having to find a company that's willing to take a chance on a military spouse.


2 steps forward and 1 step back=still moving forward, right?

I seem to get stuck. Lose 3 pounds. Stick there for 2 weeks. Lose 4 more. Stick there for a week. I'm down almost 10 pounds. Getting stronger. Getting more toned. I've been putting off doing leg workouts because I hate them so much. Squats=hell. BUT, I'm going to do legs (BUTT) tonight anyway.

That's about all that's going on. Not very exciting. :)

Good Lord, it's hot

Friday, June 20, 2014

I think I got way too used to cooler temperatures in WA. The heat and humidity of NC is killing me. It drains me of all energy and motivation. Bring on the fall!

I'm so glad it's the weekend. I could use some sleep!

I'm one of the least coordinated and flexible people I know. Always have been. It definitely makes yoga more of a struggle. The P90X yoga is no joke. I feel like I got punched in my obliques. I'm going to try to do it once a week to help with my flexibility. And it saves me a night at the gym.
