work out buddy

     I worked out with a buddy again today at another Zumba class.  This one was way more involved than the one that I did last week.  I felt a bit like I was in The Actor's Nightmare

     I had an ice cream sandwich today.  It was incredible.

Weigh In - Day 66

187.4 lbs last week
186.6 lbs today
.8 lbs lost
17.7 lbs lost over all

I can honestly say that I did not see any loss coming this week. This week I need to step up my game and get losing again.

good day

Today was a fun packed day with company, their last full day in town. We hit up Governor's Island and the September 11th Memorial. We walked all over the place. While I did not formally work out today, I walked a ton.

I seem to run into days like this often. I didn't do a work out but I was active. While I don't think days like today should count as a work out day, I do want to give myself credit for not being a bump on a log all day. On my Workout Record page I am going to add a category for active days, so I have a better idea as to what a week has really been like.

I have no idea what to expect from my weigh in tomorrow.

I will post in the morning when I weigh in since I'll be out for the rest of the day.

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

feeling better

     So I can't even start this post with out saying thank you.  Thank you to everyone who commented here, reached out on FB or by text.  I cannot believe how many of you are following and pulling for me, it has moved me to tears & probably always will.  Thank you.

hitting the wall

     After a strong week last week this one has been less than awesome for me.  I really feel like I am hitting the wall with my whole routine.  I don't want to work out I don't want to run, I don't care about the marathon or the 5k I have next weekend, I just feel like everything sucks.

Day 64

Currently I'm on the D train on the way home from the Yankees v. Royals game. Yanks lost.

I did too today. I got a call from my staffing agency that I was no longer needed at my current position.

Saturday, May 19, 2012


     My mood today was a pain.  I'm in the middle of my time of the month and as I have spoken to before, I can go through many levels and moods, etc.  Today I was complainy and tired and mean.  Beautiful.  Right?  I'm sure I'm just a total peach to be around.

date & smoothies

     So after not getting to see N AT ALL yesterday I declared that we were having a date tonight.  I was out of work at regular time tonight and sent N a text saying "I'm coming to your office and you are taking me out to dinner!"

home alone

     Tonight was a rare occasion, I was home alone.  N went out to see a good friend for dinner & drinks and I came right home after work know I wouldn't be much fun while out.

to sleep...

First off today's work out was AWESOME. I did Couch to 5k Week 4 Day 1. My longest jog so far, 5 minutes! And twice in this work out. I cried, which I tend to do when I run but man, is it a good cry.

     A plan can make all the difference.  "Those who fail to plan, plan to fail" as the old proverb goes.  A plan can be as elaborate or as simple as you want.  You're the one making this plan, and it doesn't matter two freaking fracks what anyone else thinks of it.

Another day

Today I did not work out but I did survive work much better thanks to a lot of ibuprofen.

Tomorrow I hope to come home from work and run. Though I will not make my 5 day goal this week I am still going to keep going. I am afraid of putting on weight again this week. It's so scary how quickly the weight can be put back on. No wonder I though I was putting on weight so quickly, I was.

Eating so shitty this past weekend seemed to really throw me into a tail spin. That combined with starting a new job, an unexpected weight gain and in turn hating said job I've been like some messy creature that despises everything around itself. I really am not fond. As I move though this last part of this week and I regain control on my eating I am starting to experience myself again as capable and strong.

I will also be sticking with my job. I am making good money and that can't hurt right now. I plan on saving more and spending less to really make the extra money count. Perhaps I will put my overtime pay right into my savings account. We'll see. I'm giving it until my vacation in LBI. If I cannot do it anymore by then, then I won't return from that vacation (one of the benefits of being a temp. ).

Ok. Gotta run before my phone dies.


Thanks to those who continue to read through my many phases and moods.

day 52

Work was again brutal on my lower back, it seemed like no matter how I moved or how I held my posture the way Dr. J instructed me to, I couldn't get the pressure off of my back to the point were I thought I may cry.  I manged to find some work where I could sit but that didn't make too much of a difference.

This job is kicking my ass. I did not work out yesterday or today. I don't even think I blogged yesterday. It was a pretty crap day, I was unprepared for what my new job was going to be like and I wasn't prepared to eat so I had no food and my breaks were very short.

Tomorrow N and I are food shopping right after work and then I WILL do a tape or something.

Time to start figuring out how the rest of the world with a normal job has the time/energy to work out. In bed every day by 11pm to be up at 6am is what I'm looking at now but I don't know if my body will take to that schedule. I want to make sure I am getting I enough sleep too.

I have to be in an hour earlier tomorrow so off to try & sleep I go.

This real world shit is bananas. b-a-n-a-n-a-s.

     There are a few other things I want to talk about and I just didn't want to lump them together with the mud run stuff.  First being that today I feel like crap.  I'm not sore or anything,

muddy muddy

     Yesterday was my Dirty Girl Mud Run and it was just too awesome for words.  Everything worked just like it was supposed to and some things worked out better than expected.

Dirty Girl Mud Run Day!!

Today was definitely up there on some of the most fun that I have ever had. I shocked and amazed myself. I completed a 5k obstacle course in around an hour and a half. Not too shabby.

I'm exhausted and feel incredible. I will tell you all about it tomorrow.

missed & 47

      I totally missed yesterday, my bad.  I went to NJ and spent time in the pool there with Mo.  I also picked up some yarn at Michael's with the 25% coupon that my friend gave me ::nerd::

day 45

     Wow did my run kick my behind today.  The intervals of walking and jogging were way different from what they have been before, I took a different route (so I would end up at the bank to deposit some monies) and I feel like I found a decent portion of the hills in Brooklyn Heights.

rest & big dreams

     I took today off and really did not need to.  I just had no get up and go what so ever.  With my up coming mud run this Saturday I only need two more days this week to make my goal of 5 days a week.
