Random Word Mondays

Monday, September 20, 2010

I have decided to get back to my poem writing. I use a random word generator to find 10 words, then write a poem using those words. Let me know what you think!

1. middlebrow
2. motorcycle
3. technician
4. mythologer
5. nudibranch (a shell-less marine snail having external respiratory appendages)
6. jabberwocky (playful imitation of language consisting of invented, meaningless words; gibberish)
7. rottweiler
8. bedazzle
9. pawnbroker
10. jeer

a person who believes in the legends,
the legend that I can be loved.

I live with my love and soul
plastered on the outside of my skin.

And yet you believe my love is
JABBERWOCKY. You mock my

You JEER my genuine belief
that I have the capacity to be more
than a MIDDLEBROW woman, desperate
for a man to want and need me.

You are a ROTTWEILER, knawing
at my flesh... Ripping me to shreds.

A TECHNICIAN, desperate
to fix my unrealistic raptures of life and love.

You would sell me to a PAWNBROKER,
for a newer version... a tricycle for a MOTORCYCLE.

Andrea, let me be. Allow someone to love me. Please.

The background of this poem is that lately I have felt that no one can love me. Coming from an abusive past, I have felt like I am only good for one thing and one thing only... I fight this every single day.

Getting Sexified- Day 9 (I hate dress shopping!)

Monday, September 20, 2010

Oh I have totally have a case of the Mondays and yet I was out of bed at 7:30 and off to the gym by 8. I have decided that I am going to do Insanity every other day and get some type of other activity in on the opposite days. Insanity is pretty intense and my knees can't take all the jumping around every single day. I am learning to listen to my body and I think toning down the intense workouts, but still moving is the direction I need to go.

Yesterday I had to go dress shopping. My cousin's wedding is Friday and I am absolutely dreading it. Not the actual wedding, but the putting on a dress. I had a hell of a time at the mall yesterday. Now, I do not do well in large crowds of people and I guess yesterday was the day for all high school girls to find their homecoming dresses. Not quite my idea of fun. I hated every single dress that I tried on. They all had ruffles and sequences and ugly bows. All I wanted was a plain black dress. That's it. I ended up getting a migraine and headed home. I bought a dress online and had is expedited to my house (which cost more than half the dress itself!)

Anywho, I guess my point is that the actual act of going dress shopping pushed me down farther into a funk. I got out of bed this morning, way before the alarm clock went off, so I at least have to give myself credit for that. One day at a time. I just have to keep repeating that in my head. One day at a time.

Back to Getting Sexified with Insanity- Day 1 & 2

Monday, September 13, 2010

Well- that's me after my second day of Insanity! I didn't think I would be able to get through it considering the first day really kicked my butt. But, I knew that I had to. I knew that the only way I am going to get the body I am longing for is to put in the sweat and hard work. There are no magic pills that are going to make me lose the weight. I have to have enough faith in myself to get through this. I know that it will only make me stronger when I know that I can put in the hard work to accomplish my goals.

Yes, I have been extremely depressed lately. I gained back all the weight I had lost before and am back at square one. But, I know now that I need to make this change. Plus exercise is a natural anti-depressant. The hardest part is getting out of bed, but once I put my feet on the floor and actually lift myself up, I feel like the hardest part has been accomplished. I can do anything from there.

I hope you all come along with me on this crazy INSANE ride I am about to take for the next 60 days. I hope that it truly will help me get to that "place" I am longing to be.

Getting Sexified with Insanity- Day 3

Monday, June 21, 2010

Holy smokes Batman!! Insanity is.... well, insane! I just did the Fit Test today. This is basically to test where you are at. You take the test every 15 days. Now, this isn't just like do a crunch and then a push-up. These are some crazy moves. I did the first move and I wad already dying!

I LOVE IT! If the fit test is a challenge, I know that Insanity is going to work. I know that it is going to at least give me a challenge and change my body in the process. The infomercial even makes me sweat, so now that I finally dusted off the box, but it in the blu ray player and jumped around my room- I know that I am going to be bikini ready for Vegas!!!

Now, I didn't do all the well on eating today. I know that I need to plan it out better, so tonight after homework, that is just what I am going to do. Plus, my boyfriend left for a week and gave me his credit card. Shopping spree at the grocery store!!!! Excited for tomorrow- plyometric cardio circuit: that just sounds hard!

Fit test results: (each exercise for 1 minute)
1. Switch kicks: 51
2. Power Jacks: 51
3. Power Knees: 70
4. Power Jumps: 16
5. Suicide Jumps: 9
6. Push-up Jacks: 5 (SUPER HARD!)
7. Low Plank Oblique: 50

  So, Insanity--is it better than P90X? I haven't seen anything about it. Right now I cannot afford anything new, but the extreme workout sounds intriguing.

Getting Sexified with Insanity: Day 2

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I am feeling a whole lot better today! It is amazing how different you actually feel when you change your diet. For lunch today, I had some chicken, rice, and a small salad. It filled me up more than my usual pizza and breadsticks. Well, it filled me up in a different way. I feel more satisfied that I actually put healthy food into my body rather than processed and fattening food.

I am also actually looking forward to my workout later. If I wasn't at work until 9, I would be outside enjoying the gorgeous weather. Maybe swimming or biking. I now have this urge to be active. This urge to push my body to a level I have never seen before. I used to be a swimmer. A very good swimmer at that and my body could do some amazing things. I want to surpass that and be proud that I have a capable, healthy body.

I am excited about my attitude today!!!! I have never actually felt that way before and it is an amazing feeling!

  Hey, Andrea,

That is just how I am feeling right now. I want to exercise as if I were an athlete preparing for competition. I am enjoying working hard and going for this transformation--more than just losing weight. Keep going!
