wait –wait — wha???

so, if you’re a wordpresser, you know that being “freshly pressed” is kind of a big deal…
or at least it used to be…
i thought they emailed you to let you know that they (or the general public) was choosing your post for a freshly pressed post ((So that you could clean it up maybe?? and make sure it was ready for the world to see it))
well — i was browsing around on freshly pressed, and didn’t really scroll too far down and lo and behold!!!

that's my turkey burger post!!

that’s my turkey burger post!!

i saw that!!!
dude!!! wasn’t i supposed to get an email or something!?!?

so i went and checked my email and found nothing…
but – hey !! i finally was freshly pressed!! and it’s an amazingly delicious recipe — so make it. enjoy it, and yay me!!

I miss WordPress(ing)

in about a week I will be on nights again…

maybe… at that point I can start blogging again… but I sincerely doubt it… our work computers have started acting all wonky when it comes to wordpress, and as that is where I will be spending the majority of my time when i’m on the computer, it remains to be seen about whether or not I can get back into the blogosphere…

*sigh* I also miss being able to read the freshly pressed posts… that’s one of the things that I miss being able to do also…

so… then…

again, more of nothing, but i need somewhere to share my goals and rants and whatnot- so my fellow wordpressians you fit that bill. i know that i have a lot of new readers, and for that i thank you– and you’re thinking, um, why did i choose to follow this crazy girl’s blog? she doesn’t ever blog about anything important… it’s just a bunch of useless rambling, and yes, you’re right. this is my place to ramble on incessantly about anything i want. 🙂
but –
however it is that people find me – they do, and they *gasp* follow my blog… wow…
crazy
husband thinks it’s ridiculous that i post on here… and he thinks no one pays attention to it anyways,,, i like to think that they do…
altho i am kind of disappointed that my last two recipes don’t have ANY likes…
that makes me sad b/c they were DELICIOUS.

moving on then.

my last workout, which unfortunately was monday. so at the beginning of the week, and i want to be going every day… but work problems prevented working out on tuesday and exhaustion and intense leg pain prevented it the rest of the week… oh. yeah – anyways – i posted about the workout it was great, my legs were KILLING me for 3 days… which i guess is good right?
well, tonight i did my cardio/warmup and went up to do my routine … and i added to it.. i added 20 bicycle, and increased the ‘bend-downs’ to 20, and added 20 squats… oh, and 20 bridges…(not sure that’s what they are called)… well, i got through two sets of these… and on my last 2 lunges my legs just gave out… but i powered through to do my squats, they just weren’t the right form all the way through, but then… i just couldn’t do anymore… so i went and ran a quarter mile and then stretched out in the sauna… i was so mad at myself disappointed that i couldn’t finish the 3rd set… but at the same time, i also had to leave soon anyways… so… i’ll try again tomorrow night… hopefully i can go tomorrow (this) morning and get my prt practice in..

speaking of prt practice. i had a dream last night that i was doing my prt and i ran my mile and a half in 12:30 – which i know isn’t amazingly fast like all you super runners,  but hey – it’s good for me, by a long shot… that’s like an excellent high for me! or maybe outstanding … i don’t know off the top of my head… anyways, the people running it said it was too fast, and didn’t believe that i did that… so they told me i had to practice for it and take it again at a later date.

so i started practicing with some random people (that i know, just not going to name in blog) and the first part i was practicing outside… and i just knew that the track we were on wasn’t a mile and a half, but the guy was only making me go around once, and then i moved to inside and it was another person, and still only making me go around this track once, and it was even smaller !! but my times were like 1/2 the time for the prt… it was just crazy, and then — then!!! my dream completely changed, and i was swimming in the ocean with a girl i know, and i could see the ships and the submarines, and i was thinking about bringing husband so he could see it, then all of  a sudden there was a shark near me… and i tried not to panic, but i was not doing very well in that, and the girl i was with pointed to a rocky island and told me to be careful cuz there was another shark on the other side, and i started swimming for it, but a little fish bit my toe, and i had to wake up b/c i didn’t want to get eaten… and seeing as i was now bleeding, i knew that it was going to happen…

yeah strange right??

a couple more random things, and i will come to a close, i promise.

random thing 1. i weighed myself this morning, and i’m only TWO pounds away from my goal weight.

now, my goal weight and my ideal weight are two totally different numbers, and i think i’m doing pretty well to get where i am…

i’ve been trying to eat very healthy and very small portions (compared to today’s mammoth portions that exist) but i can’t keep away from sugar…. namely chocolate…but sometimes other random candy… altho — if i do indulge in chocolate, it’s always dark chocolate. . . which is so much better for you than milk chocolate 🙂

so hopefully i can keep on my gym kick, and get to where i want to be…

random thing 2. this bit of news will delight my husband’s best friend, even tho i’m SURE he doesn’t even give a second glance to the fact that i have a blog, so he’ll never know til i tell him… haha… anyways, i have decided… that i’m going to grow my hair out… right now i’m sick of not being able to find a decent hair stylist that will cut it in a flattering way that will last for longer than 2 weeks… i know that short hair grows out quickly and mine grows even more quickly, but i had a stylist in st louis that did amazing things with my hair !!! and i could go two months or MORE without a hair cut and without it looking ridiculous. as it looks now…

so i guess i’ll go in for one more haircut and tell my stylist that i’m going to grow it out and hopefully she or hell — he… can help me out…

so… that’s all i have to say for now…

who knows i  might post something else before the end of the night… it’s only 1230 and i’m here for another 7 hours…

wooooo

yay nights…

jdfhvlkdhgk hkahfkah fkjakd hakfha fbalkfh

so.
this is a compilation of a few things.
1. i’m super angry at my command right now.
– i put in a request to go to a certain school when i got here in october.
i finally got orders to go in february, i think… but – they were standby orders
so i was told i would get to go in april.
well. april’s school came – and someone else got to go.
and i asked the person who told me before that i’d be in the next class about it, and got a snotty response from another person in the training department,
and get to work tonight and find out that 3 other people that didn’t put a request in are going to the may class.
EXCUSE ME!?!?~?~?~? ARE YOU KIDDING?!?!?! Oh holy hell i was angry. . . i yelled. quite a bit. and it just so happens that i have a meeting with my chief tomorrow morning and he will DEFINITELY be hearing about it.
2. i finally got to the gym tonight. i did a pretty good workout (i think…) i did, however, forget my boots for my uniform, so i had to cut it short.
i started with about a half hour of cardio … and then did 3 sets of: 20 bicep curls, 10 bend-downs (i made this up), 20 reverse crunches, 20 regular crunches, 20 oblique crunches, 20 standing oblique twists, 20 weighted lunges. i felt that it was a decent work out. however, i just felt fat even while i was doing it…
i don’t get it 😦
3. i’m very proud of my little girl kitten. she had been randomly peeing all over our clothes (mainly don’s) and i took her to the vet b/c i was concerned about her having another bladder infection… dr said it was behavioral… and suggested we get another box and put it somewhere … well, much to our dismay, the only place to put it was in our bathroom… so, now, while we do have litter all over the floor anytime they use it– there has been no more messes!! 🙂 yay bella!
4. i’m kinda sad that of my last 2 recipe posts, no one liked them… AND… that the last couple questions i had — people liked those posts, but DIDN’T ANSWER THEM!!!… :-\
that kinda defeats the purpose of reading the post, in my mind…
annnyyyywayyys
that’s all i remember for now…

um, i have a question —

so, when i publish my blog to facebook, it shows my old picture… instead of the updated one…
i know that it can take a few hours to update, but it’s been days now…
and i noticed it tonight
i posted a blog, and it showed my old picture…
anyone have any ideas on how to change this?? ((besides changing the featured image manually))

thanks!! 🙂

night shift

so, i started nights.

kind of tonight, but technically last week… i just took leave to accomodate some personal things… so, didn’t actually start it til tonight.

i didn’t take the necessary sleep schedule rearrangements… so i didn’t get much sleep today, but i did sleep last night…, so hopefully i make it all night…

one of the girls did buy me a monster (rehab – green tea) {yummm}

so… i’m sure i will be fine.

i also have a dr appt first thing in the morning FUN…

anyways

i’m ok with being on nights. for the most part.

there are a lot of benefits to it.

1. i get a LOT more gym time!!!

2. i don’t have to deal with a lot of the people that we have to deal with during the day shift

3. no spot checks at night (navy people know what i mean…) {ok, maybe just ETs}

4. a lot more laid back on nights (mainly due to lack of people)

5. more blogs! haha yes, i know you all are SO excited about this!!

 

it’s just in general a bit easier…

and i can do crafts!! 🙂

although, we do have a new policy that prohibits streaming now…

so i can’t listen to music…

booo 😦

and no one can watch movies either…

i know, i know… who complains about not being able to watch movies during work…

 

 

why why why

why is it that i can have the longest blog planned out in my head, but as soon as i log into wordpress IT’S GONE.

ugh.

absolutely annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

snow

wordpress has snow on their main pages…

i wish i remembered how to code a page so i can have snow on my blog pages.

 

*sad face*

Food Porn

so, i love food… actually… in all truth and honesty — i don’t like eating… i’m severely messed up in the head… b/c i have issues with the way i look and eating makes me feel fat… but goodnessssss some food is just SO good!!!!!!!!!!!

and i seriously enjoy looking for new recipes… some of them i never try… but all of them i want to try at some point, and i still have the rest of my life to do so… i will cook more often and more creatively when we get into our place come october, and i have definitely done my share of experimenting. . . . some of it has turned out SO YUMMMMMM and some of it has not turned out so well. . . but, i do enjoy trying new things, and i enjoy it when my husband likes the recipes i’ve tried! :~)

i have had the unfortunate experience of losing all the recipes i had bookmarked when my computer crashed… well — actually — i found out later that my computer didn’t crash… i had a cd in the drive and it wouldn’t restart properly with it in there, so i did all kinds of reset stuff and lost all my files and bookmarks needlessly… sometimes — i’m not the smartest girl… *sigh*

so anyways, i foodporn quite regularly. . . and i discover all kinds of new sites. . .

my favorite way to discover new recipes is via www.foodgawker.com an sometimes www.punchfork.com

i find a lot of new sites using www.stumbleupon.com as well — that’s actually where i found the 2 aforementioned sites. . .

so, today i found http://www.howsweeteats.com/ 

and one of my fave sites to browse is http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/

and last week i found a new (to me) blog that is from a girl in ST LOUIS!!!  http://www.thesweetslife.com/

she has some DELICIOUS looking mac ‘n’ cheese . . . among other things…

i just wish that i could do the pics as easily and well as other bloggers…

*shrug*

oh well — enjoy foodporning!!

2011 in review

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.
