Seem To Have Hit A Really Big Wall

Sunday, October 17, 2010

*SIGH* .... Yeah.. I'd be lying if I said over the past three weeks I have made really good choices and have remained motivated in my healthy eating and fitness.
I'd be lying if I said I trained these past few weeks for my 2nd 5K next weekend.
I have not one ounce of motivation to do anything...
I'm not eating bad... however, I am not eating great... i have done some strength training, but the cardio is waaaaay down.
I was going to join Planet Fitness again to motivate myself... but I am a little worried I will go over my bank account. I am trying to pay off my debt (Hence, the second job I am currently working).
Why can I not just put on my freaking sneakers and get the hell out there?? Is it a question of just sucking it up and doing it???!!

    Sounds like you are a bit burnt out and/or exhausted. Working two jobs can take away ones life!

Can you shake up your exercise some? Try running in a different area/park? Maybe add some speed work or more distance? I know for me as a novice, I have to have concrete goals to keep moving forward. Part of those goals include specific, small steps that I can do each day/week to reach those goals.

Hope you find your motivation and enthusiasm soon!

I Sprained My Toe

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Ugh!!!.. Yep. I sprained it this morning. I went bustling into the bedroom and the blanket sometimes covers the foot of the bed and SLAM!!! - - Now, I have whacked my toe on the bed frame numerous other times, but this time for some reason was a doozy. It is all black and blue and I had a hard time walking later on in the day,
I had finally decided to meet with my running group tonight and I had to cancel because I can barely walk let alone run. :( So now I am sad.
I did however meet with Linda and we hung out at Starbucks.. she accidentally spilled her coffee in my purse.. I couldn't believe it!! lol.... She insisted she buy me a new purse after I kept telling her she didn't have to. So we went to TJ Maxx (I had never been before) and I found a nice one for like 20 dollars... she wanted to buy me something more expensive but I didn't see the point. I didn't see the point of her buying me a new purse actually, but she kept insisting. So OK then.
I have my 5K next Saturday... I hope that my toe is better by then ... emoticon

    You might have broken it...need to get it x-rayed. If it is broken and NOT sprained you can do more harm by not letting it heal. If it is broken....but not displaced yet...not treating could cause it to displace creating larger problems. I work for a podiatrist. Please get it x-rayed to verify whether it is broken or sprained. Please.

I Vow

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Tonight I Vow that I will no longer procrastinate.
Tonight I vow that I want to be better in so many ways and it is time I stop complaining about myself to myself and do something about it.
I am tired of not being happy with myself but being lazy when it comes to doing anything about it. I was doing very well for a while.
Time to start doing well again.
Tomorrow is Monday. Tomorrow I do for me. Tomorrow I go to the park for lunch and run for 25 minutes.
Tuesday I make myself sit down and read 25 pages in the book about writing.
Wednesday I go to my running group and then go to a meeting.
I think that is a good start.

It's Been Such A Long Time

Saturday, October 09, 2010

Heeeey... Yeah, been gone a little while... Things are getting pretty hectic around here and I am barely able to find a moment to myself. I managed to start back up with my strength training again which has made me very happy.
I have been eating well, however, I do some battle with Peppermint Patties occasionally and I have to say, they have quite the determination!
This two jobs thing is really starting to take its toll on me. My boss at my full-time job is on my last nerve. He has such an attitude!! I Know the guy has a lot going on in his life with his parents, but I would think that would incline him to want to be nicer to people. The girl I work with, Nancy, she was diagnosed with cancer in April and she comes in late a lot and has been making more mistakes than usual. He used to yell at her like he yells at me but now he is super nice to her and I think, well, I wouldn't want to yell at her either. So I guess I am the one that gets the pent up frustration. I just realized that while writing this. emoticon
So based on the fact that I am starting to really dislike my boss I decided about 3 weeks ago to really focus on my writing. The disliking of the boss also has made me realize some other things as well. Life is too short to put up with other people's crap! emoticon

    Glad you could vent. Just remember jobs are hard to come by and don't be as miserable as your boss. Keep an inner peace.

  Smile at him and ask how his parents are? The smile will
throw him off his crabby game.

Help take care of your friend. Hope she is in some kind of
treatment plan.

Getting ready for a big weekend!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Yep!! We are going to Knoble's this weekend. A bunch of us are going.. I am looking forward to finding some trails to run on.. I think that'll be great... We got a bunch of snacks and such and we are all bringing certain things to share.
I ma very excited.. We are going to be sleeping in tents.. I have not slept in a tent outside since i was like 11 and I was a Girl Scout. I slept in that tent with my very best friend at the time Tina Nejman and we had a blast even though it poured the whole time. emoticon
We are going to go to the Amusement Park and ride an epic roller coaster (that's what I hear anyway).
Well, time for bed. emoticon
G'night all!

  Have a great time and I hope you find some good trails

I am hopping on my little motorcycle and heading off into
the wide open highways.
