Winter/Spring Update: The Good, The Bad and the Meh.

Monday, March 26, 2012

So I have been basically away from major stuff with Spark because my internet is slow as molasses at work (It takes ten minutes to update one meal for one day) and on top of it, now my comp won't start at home. So I've been AWOL and really hating it but then have only been getting frustrated when it takes all day to update my breakfast on the nutrition page. Booooooooo.

Good news: We are currently on Week 4 of Insanity! Which means starting Week 4 and we're all pretty much still going strong! Yay! And I've been starting to add ST sessions in there as well when I'm not totally exhausted, lol!

Bad News: I have not lost any weight AT ALL. The scale likes to go down then come back up and my jeans fit the exact same. This at 4 weeks of Insanity. I don't get it.

Good News: My diet has been pretty fricking awesome most of the time!

Bad News: My bf's brother moved in with us at the beginning of March which makes it twice as hard to eat right because his diet is pretty much as bad as his bro's (they order out every evening for dinner). But on top of it, he sometimes double checks MY meals if he sees like a health special or some health news on the morning shows. That just irritates me because they're the ones who order out for dinner every night (the brother doesn't like any meal I make so I stopped attempting to cook for him) but he's telling me that a certain Healthy Choice meal is bad for me or asking what kind of milk am I drinking (I drink either fat free or 1% for all those wondering, lol). It's driving me crazy.

Good News: Summer is so close I can practically feel the sunburn already. Yami has been coming up with some good plans to do stuff during the next few months that I'm really looking forward to.

Bad News: It's barely Spring and Mother Nature is PLAYING WITH ME!!

Meh News: Work has been weird. The head boss finally pissed off one of the librarians enough that he cursed her OUT. Since then, everyone's been uncomfortable around the boss and last week we had a meeting in which we aired some of our feelings about her. So now we're still sort of uncomfortable around her, waiting for her to revert back to her regular persona but at the same time trying not to push her over the edge. My current motto at work is: I don't care. Which is not good. But at the same time I'm not longer stressing as much about work because...I don't care. Hence this falling under the Meh category.

Beyond that, life continues on. We have another week of Insanity which introduces a new workout that we need to do the entire 5th week and then Month 2 marks the beginning of longer, harder Insanity workouts. I'm not looking forward to it just because I could never fit in the workout when I did the program the first time around. But this time with a bunch of friends doing it with me, it might go better. After Insanity is done (which brings us into May), we're gonna do Jillian Michael's Body Revolution which is her 90 day workout program and that should carry us all through Summer, I'd say. I have to admit, I'm already looking forward to it because I miss using my weights. I did an ST workout courtesy of my NTC app on my iphone and I am feeling sore still two days later, which I love. Yay for weights!

Anyways, that's about it!

    I am totally looking forward to week 5 only cause its a new workout, even though we gotta do it the whole week straight LOL!

    Im hoping that in month 2 we will see more of a drop in weight. I hope...

    My dieting has been good too! I think this is the first time I have been this good since the very beginning when I first started losing weight! The spark app helps a lot because I gave up on recording my food on spark during work hours loL! Now I can do it really quick on my phone, and because of that I have been tracking everyday! Only problem is I forgot to actually log on to spark on the comp so I can spin the wheel and also check on the teams... Bad me bad!

    I think this is going to be an awesome summer! I want to be outdoors as much as possible! I have to get some new summer clothes too! Woohoo!!

    Oh man I cant stand when people who dont eat healthy do that to me... Its like REALLY!? And tell me what kind of milk are YOU drinking???? LOL No offense to manny, but I couldnt STAND cooking around tony and manny when we all lived together cause they would stand over me and see what I was putting in the food and making comments. I used to want to scream "BE GONE!" lol!

    Oh I cant stand this weather change... It feels like its winter again.. How did it go from summer weather to winter weather again! Its crazy!!

    Sorry about work but sometimes thats the attitude you need to have when working in BPL. Its sad but its true!

    Cheers to summer coming!!

    Week 4 of Insanity WOOOO HOOOOO!! I can start to see the finish line. I cant believe we've come this far in the program, something that I used to see on tv and say "yea right I cant do that!" Im so excited for us to finish this program and move on to the next. I cant believe Im going to say this, but I miss Jillian. I used to want to kill her, now shes like a cuddly teddy bear that I want to squeeze. GO US!!! emoticon
