Don't You Hate When People Yell?

Monday, May 12, 2008

My boss just yelled at me for no real reason. He was upset because I didn't "package" the answer the way he wanted. I hate when people are in bad moods and they take it out on you.

A bonus to my day...My neighbors cat pooped and peed on my balcony again. Of course, I had to pick it up. I sprayed the Woolite Pet stuff again. I hope it works this time. Maybe I need to spray it in the morning and at night. This is ridiculous.

I am going to the gym tonight and I just want to sweat out this day! People should not pass on their bad moods because they are hard to shake!

Hope you all are having a better day!

    I skipped out of work early one day when someone was getting on my last nerve. I was doing some kickboxing moves and then pounding out some punches on the stability ball. (Great for the arms!) Some guy said he was glad I wasn't mad at him!

On the cat issue - I've got 6 cats. One male who likes to spray in my house, and some neighborhood cats who like to use my hedges for a litter box. The best thing I've used is Urine-Off (I buy it online). It has enzymes that eat away the urine smellies. Otherwise the cat will keep coming back to mark the area no matter what you cover up the smell with. Good luck - cats can be stubborn.

I Want to Eat Everything in Sight!

Wednesday, May 07, 2008

So...I learned something new about myself tonight. When it is about 2-3 days right before that time of the month, I want to EAT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT! I cannot keep my mind off food.

I was able to convince myself that I didn't need a McDonald's breakfast meal this morning. I did avoid the drive thru and thank goodness I had a protein bar in the car! One point for the planner in me! I need to buy some more of those, they really do get me through the day sometimes.

I just had to share. I am going to eat an orange then chug water so I can try to control this little monster inside of me!

    I have that too!!! And I do mean EVERYTHING, I've eaten over 4000 calories before! I think most of us women have something similar... =) But we can beat it!!! Go you for the orange and water! emoticon

    It's evil, isn't it? That sick desire to gorge on anything that will stand still long enough to be eaten... :)

Confessions of a Sweaty Betty on the Salsa Floor!

Sunday, May 04, 2008

We went Salsa dancing last night, which I LOVE to do and have no idea HOW to do it! But it is so much fun! We went to the lesson before and man was I sweating balls! You have to get so close to these guys and I am thinking, I feel like a sweat bucket, I hope I don't look like one! But I did! Oh well! It was fun anyways and I looks like I burned over 1100 calories last night! I got on the scale this morning and had lost 2lbs!

I think I am going to trade my Monday night Zumba class for a Salsa lesson in L.A. The guy who was teaching us was the Salsa instructor from Dancing with the Stars. He kinda creeped me out a little though because he was really touchy and kinda undressed you with his eyes. He is one of those! He was nice, well of course! But just a little odd. Good knowledge though but he teaches really fast for a beginner class.

So anyhow, just wanted to share. I can't believe I have just 8.5 pounds to go to get to my mini goal! I have about 10 more days...But, I think if I lose 3 pounds and get under 200, that will be a great birthday gift to myself!

If you haven't tried it yet, Salsa is a great cardio activity that is so fun! And you will definately get a good workout and be a sweaty Betty like me!

I went to spining on Tuesday, walked my moms dogs on Wednesday, worked until 10:30p last night but didn't exercise and am trying to figure out when I am going to exercise today! I think I am going to bail on Happy Hour tonight and go to the gym instead. I was going to go with my best friend from high school who I haven't seen in 2 years, but I am thinking that the drinks, spending money, etc. is not worth it right now for me. I have 5 months to get myself together and lose 20 lbs so I can get less expensive health insurance. I have to be under 188 to qualify for the lower rate.

Yes, I am going to bail. It is decided. I will see her on my birthday anyhow, so it's not a total lost cause. We gotta do the things that are best for us, right? Right!

Okay, so I'm NOT going to be a slacker!!!

    Way to go! It's all about the choices we make every day. Each one builds to the next. And you made a tough one! Friends, fun, food, drinks...oh, my! But you clearly know what the bigger picture holds for you.

Yea for you!!!

Spinned Last Night

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

I have been taking a weekly spinning classes for about the last month. The instructor is great and I about DIED last night! I missed last week because I had an appointment for work and the class starts at 5pm. So this week was terribly difficult. Also, I hurt my quad on Sunday getting up somehow and it was a little taxing on that muscle.

My brother is having surgery today for Kidney Stones, he is just 27. Everything is supposed to go easy breezy today and it is an outpatient surgery. Since I will be at the hospital this after noon about 1.5 hours away from home, I won't get to go to the gym. But, I will take my mom's dogs for a walk tonight, at least 30 minutes. Maybe my mom will come with us!

I think I am going to have to go to the 6am class tomorrow morning at the gym since there aren't any classes I like on Thursday afternoons. My goal is to put in 5 days of exercise this week. I am only at one, today makes two, Thursday three and I will need to go Friday and Saturday. Very doable!

Have a great day!

P.S. I am up 0.5lbs today. I think it's due to my spinning class last night. I drank 9 glasses of H2O, which is a lot for me. Although I didn't have to go to the ladies room that often, might be retaining water for the sore muscles!
