Wishing it was quiet...

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Today, I am having a "bhah" day.. I hope by blogging about it, it will make me feel better.

First, I am anxious and have tons of energy (and not in the good way). To deal with this, I usually walk it out. I did take a 2 mile walk on the way to work which seemed to work.. but now I am irritated again. Everyone here is talking.. mind you, we tutor, and they are talking about their personal life.. and it is really bugging me. *sigh* I just want them to be quiet! I can hear them clearly across the room!

I am trying to debate when to go for another walk today... because I definitely have to. If I don't, I will be even more anxious, irritated and stressed. Not good.

So, I could ...
1. go for a 3 mile walk near campus after work than cook supper
2. go for a walk off and away from campus and cook for supper afterwards.

The downside of the last one is I might not have time to cook supper after 4 mile walk and I would be stuck with what I ate for lunch.

Why the debate? I get off work at 2 and work at my other job at 5 which leaves 3 hours for a walk and making supper. The 4 mile walk takes about a hour and half.. *sigh*

Besides all this, we are having a tornado drill in which I will be stuck in the crowded basement with tons of people.. and these people will want to small talk. When I feel anxious and irritated, I don't want to do small talk, I want to be left alone. Grr..

Okay, enough complaining.

On the positive side, I did strength training today (the last time I did it was April 3rd)! I am going to try to do it 3x during this ten day period.

I hope everyone is having a better Thursday than me!

    Thanks.. Monday and Tuesday was pretty epic so I guess this is okay.

I think when the fire drill happens I am going to walk home, change, check my mail on campus, than go for a walk off campus.. than make supper.

Right now the walk is more important than eating boring food, lol. The walk will hopefully clear my mind for a bit. I mind walk after work too. You see I hate being like this. Haha!

(Seriosuly, I can't sit still.. my leg is bouncing b/c I have too much energy!)

1st Weigh in of the 100 Day Challenge

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Today was the day. To weigh in. After TEN days of not weighing in. This was my first weigh in for my 100 Day Challenge. I was nervous but antsy. I was so antsy that this morning, I was thinking, "Oh, I get to weigh myself today." as I laid in bed. It is nice to know.

(Drum roll, please.)

I lost FOUR pounds.. Wa-hoo! I really wanted to weigh under 210 today.. and I did! Officially, I weight 209.6. YAY!

When I set up my 100 Day Challenge, I made a weight goal of 2-3# a week and I think those goals were set perfect for me. I would rather set it too low than too high.. than be let down. This first week, I reached my goal!!!

Anyhow, I am pretty excited.. I am also wearing my new $5.97 shirt that I got at Old Navy... and I feel beautiful, too!

Today, I think I am going to go for a emoticon today... after work. I don't have anything to do from 1 pm.. so I think I am going to go to the boardwalk. I am not sure with how far.. maybe do a 6 mile walk? I know I am going for a 3 or 4 mile walk at least!

Have a emoticon day!

Nothing to do with weight loss.. just wanting some feedback.

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Okay.. here is the thing.. I would like some feedback on something that had little to do with my weight loss. And, you guys are always so supportive..

Here is the thing. I keep hearing A Little Dust on the Bottle by David Lee Murphy or Aaron Tippin. If you are not familar with it, links for the lyrics and the You Tube Video are below!


YouTube Video

I feel like God is giving me a message because I seriously did not hear it for YEARS.. and now I hear it probably at least weekly! But what is the message?!!

I think the message may be that the longer I wait for a romantic relationship, the better it will be. Another intrepretation I have played with is that I need to patient with this guy that I have been hanging out with and not rush it with him because the longer I wait, the better it will be.

What do you think it is about? What do you think the possible message is? Any other intrepretations?

I am open to any feedback because it is driving me CRAZY!

You see today after I got done hanging out with this guy and I was chilling out with myself. I was thinking along the lines of way down the future.. like past marriage.. where it does not really pertain. And, guess what? This song comes on! Seriously..

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I have had the same things happen to me with a certain song called "The Living Years" by Mike & The Mechanics. First song I heard when my Grandma died and it helped me so much. I heard it every day for a year it seemed. So, yes I do believe if our hearts are open we are given signs or messages to help us sort things out.

As far as guys are concerned - I certainly could not give you an opinion on your guy - but in my experience if he is not on his knees thanking god you are in his life and his life is not complete without you by his side then I would keep looking. Do not settle for anything. When it comes to love and marriage take it all.

So, good luck. Interesting question!

    I've heard the song and like it. I think it's referring to the fact that we get better with age. As we mature and grow we learn more about ourselves and what we want and what we have to give. Not sure what to tell you about the current guy you're with, but I do believe that God puts people in our lives for a reason. Whether, in this case, it's to realize that you need to be patient with him, or learn and move on -- only you can decide. Good luck!

Pleasantly Surprised!

Today, I was really crabby..especially at the end. I am not going to spread the crabbiness to you.. but let's just say it has some to do with the dang laptop. Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I tried on a friend's new swimsuit and it FIT! I did not think it was going to but it DID! I may change my rewards for the 100 day challenge for only weighing in every ten days to the swimsuit to be first rather than a new bra. I really want to go swimsuit shopping now. Seriously, it was so slimming.. it was great!

Tomorrow is a new day, thank goodness! :-)

    Thanks... you always make me smile! :-) They are actually both rewards for my 100 day challenge - it just a matter of what I want right now and kinda need. As long as I get to Tuesday, I get a reward.. I am thinking a swimsuit... but a bra seems like I need more. On the other hand, if I wait a little longer on the bra than maybe I won't have to buy a new one for a while! :-)

Walked Seven Miles, Ran .5 Mile of It! :-)

Thursday, April 15, 2010

This morning I SPRUNG out of bed at 8 am. Now that is just amazing all by itself, haha! I sprung out of bed because I wanted to make sure to get a emoticon in before working at noon. I was all excited until I saw it was foggy. emoticon. I was kinda disappointed since the forcast that it was supposed to be beautiful! I went to the Rose Garden/Boardwalk in Duluth, Minnesota. It still beautiful with no emoticon. I was able to watch Lake Superior shore which was really relaxing. After work, it seemed to have warmed up and it was emoticon. So, I decided to go for another but on the Wisconsin side. emoticon Towards the end, I decided to emoticon Later, I tracked it and it ends up I ran a solid half mile at the same speed. I did not plan doing this but it was emoticon nevertheless.. I haven't ran for that kind of distance probably since Febraury. It was so emoticon today! I am really proud of myself that I walked a total of 7 miles today and ran .5 mile of it!!!! emoticon Also, I get my laptop back tonight.. I guess they say nothing is wrong with it. Whatever.. I'll deal with the fading in and out.

All in all, I would deem today:

    Thanks.. I actually walked another two miles.. so I am up to 9 miles. Lately, I have been trying to tire my body out. Seriously, even through my feet and hamstrings are a little tired, I feel like I could still walk. LOL!
