me again...

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

wow... i haven't been in here in FOREVER...

i've really missed blogging... but i've been living my life... at 100 miles per hour....

new job...
going to the gym....
funky fun classes...
family....
children...
weight loss....

well..... you know what happens when you do ANYTHING at 100 miles per hour.... eventually you CRASH.... *sheesh*.... did i ever....

so.... i'm at a new job.... and it started the way they always start... we love you, you rock, how did we ever live without you... yada yada yada.... well.... for ONE board member, the honeymoon is DEFINITELY over..... the rest of them are pretty great to me.... (and constantly tell me i'm fabulous... which feeds my need... seriously, im worse then a junkie!!)....

but JOE..... what the heck to say about joe?... he's a loud, boorish, opinionated (usually wrong), trashy, nasty jerk...... a 'jerk-a-saurous' we would (and do) call him at home.... he started out all nice to me (he's actually the one who initiated my 'wooing' to this job...).... but when i started telling him, and the rest of the board, that there are procedures to follow, you can't just do what you want, ... well,.... like any child who's been 'reigned in'... he got petulant and nasty... (he litterally swears at me... he's told me NUMEROUS times to 'shut the f**k up'.... WHO talks that way to their employee?!?!!??!)..... anyway.... every day with him is a new challange... it's a good thing i don't drink.... i would be a raging alcoholic.... as it stands, i go home and just want to stuff my face.... but my BUTT will NOT get bigger because of him.... (ya!!... if my butt gets bigger, it'll be because of ME... lol)

well.... going to the gym.... okay.... i fell off the wagon... well... fell off, jumped off, ran behind, jumped over, ran ahead of.... it's all the same.... i KNEW i should be going.... but by the time i was ready to go...(read, not too lazy to go)... it had been so long (six weeks total) that i knew it was going to be painful to go back.... i've done a little here and there.... walking down at the pier... getting on my baby elliptical... (so named because it's not as huge as the ones at the gym... sadly...)... walking .... okay okay... walking to the FRIDGE.... is it any wonder i gained back EIGHT freakin pounds!?!?!? (ummm add my vacation in there... a week at the cottage...)... but i went back to the gym today.... did 20 min on the treadmill on an incline of 6%... at 3.5 speed.. (at 3.6 i'm running... and my knees are KILLING later).. then did 20 min on the elliptical... MUCH harder than the baby elliptical in front of the tv watching the food network... and then 20 min on the stationary bike... i felt like a CARDIO QUEEN when i was done.... it was pretty awesome... and it was nice to get back....

*****side note.... WHAT THE HECK.... everybody at the gym is PREGNANT... you go away for six weeks and come back to everyone with big preggo bellies... i guess after six weeks they SHOULD be showing... but holy heck...!!*********

funky fun classes.... all done.... but i'm going to look for more... stayed tuned.. same bat game, same bat channel....

family/children.... DH is good.... (such a good hubby... i was talking to him on the phone, and mentioned that i needed some groceries, cause i have no food at work... and he went out and bought them for me and brought them to me... had lunch with me real quick and went back to work... *sigh*... i love that man!!).... children are good.... my son is home alone this summer... he's 11.... and we're working on making sure he doesn't spend all his summer in bed, on the compuer, or playing video games.... we have a deal that he has to get SOME exercise every day.... and he has to be up and out of bed before i leave for work (at 8 or 8:30)... we accomplish this by making his breakfast before i leave.... so he gets up to eat... and he gets on the baby elliptical a couple of times a week... (right now he's trying to break my time of 30 min.. he can only do 27..tee hee).... and he goes to the rec center near our house.... he usually swims twice a day... once during the afternoon, and once at night... he meets his friends there and has a good time... my daugher... my first born... my baby.... is moving into her first apartment on august 1st.... *sniff*.... with her boyfriend... that nasty, icky, yucky boy who is violating my daughter on a regular basis.... *sigh*.... she's 18 and ready... well... we'll see...... (is it wrong to be excited about making her room my 'baby elliptical room?')...

weight loss..... stalled.... well.... starting again.... i'm gonna do atkins for a few weeks to kick start me... i'll let you know how it turns out....

ciao!!

**i'm sad that jenna won't be reading my blog... she was always so encouraging and said such nice things.... RIP jenna my 'cyber-friend'***

    I love reading your blogs. You have such a wonderful sense of humor, even in the midst of difficult times. I'm glad to see you're getting back on track. I too have fallen off the wagon and feel like i've been run over by it..lol, but am trying to get it back together. Stress has a funny way of derailing us. I hope things at the new job simmer down with the gummpy, swearing guy. Someone should tell him the use of profanity only shows a persons' ignorance....that's what I tell my kids. It hard to subject yourself to that on a daily basis. I'll be praying for you in that regard.


    Well, I've written a letter instead of a comment....sorry I tend to ramble.
