Back in the saddle.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Today work was very frustrating. People are making lots of errors left and right, and every thing seems disorganized. I got out and went to kettlebell training for 45 minutes, then I did zumba for 45. It was a good stress reliever. I don't feel 100% but this was some progress.

I am slightly worried about the weigh in tomorrow, however, I know i will bounce back from it if it doesn't reflect a good number. I just don't like disappointing the team. Howevever, I know health is the ultimate goal so I will move forward!

On a sidenote: I just got cable again, and NCISLA?!!? Whhhatt?! Stop the madness. LL Cool J? This can never replace Gibbs!!!

Nonscale victories: Seen some definition in my arms...well at least after I kettlebelled, lol. :)

Things I'm thankful for today:
Getting back to working out.
Feeling better.

The little engine that could...

Monday, February 04, 2013

my engine's sputtering but I am still giving it all I can! lol

This has been a rough last week. The audit was very time consuming, my cat got a severe UTI treated which was an unplanned expense, my sister's birthday was this week along with superbowl weekend...my health took a HIT last week. I did what I could to maintain it. I also got some kind of headcold/sore throat as well.

I'm feeling much better. The throat no longer hurts. My head is a little fuzzy though. I made it to the gym today for some strength training and ran 30 minutes on the treadmill. Definitely felt good to get back on that horse after a week off. I am going to try to go to some classes tonight if I feel up to it.

As for the money situation, its really tight. I had to get whisker's re-tested and apparently he still has a very high bacterial load and crystals in his bladder still. So he has to go another round of antibiotics (he's not excited about that, nor is my wallet). After we're done with these, he has to go in this time for testing (they will get urine straight from his bladder). I'm sure that will cost me some $$$. *Sigh* That was definitely an unplanned expense. The cat has cost me over $330 this far.

The dog ripped the pad on his foot. I'm not exactly sure if they can do any thing for that though. He seems better today but two days ago he didn't want to put any weight on his foot. If I have to end up taking him in for that I can only imagine. I better get a second job just to be able to provide for my animals lol. (that's only 2 out of the 5 of them. Guess I should be thankful the rest of them are healthy right now.)

I'm taking one day at a time though.

I am thankful that God has provided for me thus far.

Here is a picture of me and Randy for BLC21.

Special Ops BLC21

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I am feeling exhausted, sick and tired. However I still feel in a good mood. This has affected my exercising habits. Today I tried to get in more water. This is my special ops for Saturday.

Yesterday I posted about the audit and the stress so I consider my special ops done for friday too. I've been trying to get through work and get home and rest so that I can get some fitness in tomorrow.

Gotta get my spark in

Friday, February 01, 2013

Don't feel like myself when I am not able to get my spark on!

This week has been rough. We had the unfortunate luck to get the toughest internal auditor. She was not very pleasant the last time around. This time she is better but definitely still hard! I've been working like 13 hours every day this week. Can't wait for her to leave today.

I haven't had time to exercise this week except for once. I missed saying good bye to my favorite class instructor and I missed my kettlebell class I paid extra for. Argh. :(

Any ways I gotta run to work now.

Wedding stuff: taste testing

Monday, January 28, 2013


I am having both my ceremony and reception at the above link in case any of you were interested. Tonight we went to taste some entrees and cake!!! Definitely going with the glazed Cornish hen and some champagne cake with raspberry filling.

I'm kind of a nut because I was disappointed that I missed cardio dance!! Should've planned better... Between work, grad school, family...oh wait... ;) lol. It was nice night though with randy. My belly hurts though!!!

On the bright side: I think the scale evened out (at least prior to this evenings extravagance). I've been watching my sodium and drinking lots of water.

Nonscale victory:
Running thirty min on the treadmill nonstop. It must've been mental before because now that I set the 5k goal and talked to a trainer, I didn't have any problems doing it.

Coming in 3rd for weight loss in camo team!!

Things I'm thankful for:
Cameron's stomach feeling better.
That I didn't gain two lbs last week. (Tonight may be a different story)
Being able to get back to school
That I decided to take advantage of a 3 day weekend and not go into work. I needed the break
