maybe i can remember

so, i posted a facebook status about this — but i’m going to talk about it a little bit more here…

the people here cannot drive worth shit!!! it’s absolutley insane.

my drive isn’t really that bad. it’ s 17 miles, mostly highway, on a good day with no idiots — it’s 20 – 25 minutes…

BUT… there are so many horrible drivers here?!!!? i totally don’t get it!!!!!!!!!!

and the way the roads are designed is just… insane… a toddler could do¬†a better job!

i find myself driving with my hands clenched around my steering wheel so tightly that it hurts, and my jaw clenched just as tightly…

it’s pretty painful…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

so, i started the special k diet last week… or this week… whenever – -monday.. .

annnnnd i bought all this stuff…

and then i realized that — this is so much processed food!! i don’t eat this much processed food on a normal basis… not even close… and now that’s ALL i’m eating except the fruits and veggies i can have… :-\

but, now i have all this special k stuff, so i gotta finish it out, and then i think i’m going to do the flat belly jumpstart diet… cuz that helped me lose weight last time i did it…

i’m working out as much as i am, on days i work at the beginning and end of my shift.. and i don’t know how that’s going to work when i start days this week…

however, i might try to do the programs that they are doing for the day workers… so, hopefully that helps…

but — BUT…

i’m not seeing any results… ūüė¶

i’ve been doing this for over a month now, and nothing, and i know that results take time — but … i should be seeing SOMETHING… and i got nothing

i really need some help… i don’t have internet connectivity in the gyms i work out … so i can’t just go online and grab some workouts…

i research them at work, and even sometimes write them down; but – i just don’t remember the moves when it comes time to do it.. ūüė¶

plus i’m craving candy!

i hate that!!! i hate craving sugar!!!

anyways…

i did have more to talk about… but, i don’t remember it… of course… ūüė¶

Rants & Raves

so, this blog is about several different things-¬†as long as i¬†can remember all i wanted to blog about…
i wanted to write one yesterday … and one the day before… but sleep, household chores, and time with bear came first (not in that order)

1. the inexcusable rudeness of some drivers
on base the other day a fire truck, ambulance, and cop cars were coming down the road ,everyone got over except for this girl in a truck and the person behind her who was either too close, or just not paying attention — i¬†couldn’t see that person, but i¬†could see this bitch finishing up her fast food breakfast, watching the fucking emergency vehicles in her rear view and just sitting there. they were the ONLY two cars that did not move thus forcing the emergency vehicles to have to go into oncoming traffic… OMG i¬†was pissed!!!¬† so here you are too fucking inconsiderate WATCHING THEM APPROACH AND YOU DON’T MOVE/!?!?!?!?!¬† with the amount of vehicles, you have to assume it was a life or death situation… but ya know maybe it wasn’t BUT HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW!?!?!? get your ass out of the way… and to sit there and watch them?!!?! omg¬†i¬†wanted to get out of my car and punch through her fucking window and punch her repeatedly in the face… that could have caused soooo¬†many problems — a minor delay that is the difference between life & death – another accident b/c of them having to drive in the wrong lanes… anything… ugh i¬†was angry… angry¬†angry… and writing about it revives my anger — i¬†just absolutely hate when people don’t move… isn’t it the law?? i’m¬†PRETTY sure it is… so many things can happen if you don’t get your inconsiderate ass out of the way… ugh…

*deep breath* calm down…

2.¬†we went out to dinner the other night b/c i¬†was just way too tired¬†to make food… plus i¬†woke up pretty late¬†and it would have just taken too long… so we went¬†to this¬†place called Woody McGee’s Barstro… I want to write a yelp review — but i’m going to put it here first.¬†
first off — our server (becky) was great! she was super friendly and very¬†efficient…¬†when she was busy – others brought out what she couldn’t in a timely manner, i¬†don’t know if this was something that they just do, or if she was like – hey can you do this for me? … regardless — great service from her!¬† we were started with their in house¬†cornbread (according to miss becky¬†– everything they make is made in house, from scratch) – the corn bread was a roasted red pepper & jalapeno version… i’m¬†not such a fan of jalapenos… but omg¬†this corn bread was great!! husband said it could be made a little bit better by using cream corn… and i¬†do agree that would probably kick it up to amazing..¬† husband had their burger¬†of the day which was called the G.G.M. or A… i¬†don’t quite remember — but it was smoked gouda, white cheddar, PBR¬†fried onions, and bacon on top of the beef patty (i¬†have to specify beef patty b/c they have a 50/50 burger which is half ground beef and half ground bacon) but all this served on a pretzel roll… i¬†don’t know why it was called ggm/a¬† … b/c there’s only one g… but hey whatever… his first bite was great… and up until about 1/2 way through he was thoroughly enjoying it… but then … it got kinda cold as food does as time goes on, and it became √ľber¬†greasy… ūüė¶ so much so that he couldn’t finish it… so he just picked at it…the fries were decent, pretty peppery though… i¬†had a cup of the corn chowder… it was good… but not great… it could have been a littttttle¬†bit thicker — and there was TONS of bacon in it… which i¬†get — yay for bacon… but it was boiled maybe?? if i¬†had made it — i¬†would have made crispy bacon cut into smaller pieces and put it in maybe on the top so it retained its crispness… but it was still good… ((mine’s better!! haha))¬† and for the meal i¬†had their OMG Brussel Sprout Salad… i¬†have to tell you — my first bite — i¬†realllly¬†did say oh my god… and that was even missing part of the key ingredients… they take brussel¬†sprouts, and dismantle them… that might not be the right word — but seriously – they take apart the brussel¬†sprout and you have all these little leaves… and then they flash fry them, mix it with some goat cheese and cherry tomatoes and a white balsamic dressing… they forgot, however, to put my goat cheese on there… and there were, unfortunately, only a couple tomatoes… it was so good though, and when she did bring out the cheese – it definitely kicked it up another notch… she said there was a new person in the kitchen tonight – hence all the mistakes … i¬†think it could have been made better by definitely adding more tomatoes (which i¬†told her) and also .. .draining it a little bit more… i was only able to eat 2/3 of it… it just got to heavy with all the grease… so — definitely drain some more… and add more tomatoes… and then i think it would be perfection!!!¬† but anyways, if you’re in Virginia Beach off Holland Road — check it out… (http://woodymcgees.com/)

i did have more to write about … but of course …i forgot… *sigh* booooo….

ok…

well, there’s my rant, and my rave…

~Peace~

 

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

i remembered!!!

 

3. my body craves sugar. not just hmmm candy sounds good, but full on CRAVE-OMG-I-NEED-IT-NOW type of thing… and it’s not just a pms thing… but an all the time thing… i’m never going to lose weight if i keep giving into these cravings, b/c they are THAT strong, you have no idea… my willpower is not enough to defeat these mind numbing cravings… *shake my head* whatever am i going to do… why do you defy me body, why !!??!!

 

Community Sound Off re: Tornado – Thursday 30Jun11

so,

thursday, June 30, a tornado hit our area… i’m not certain if it was actually legitimately deemed a tornado – or what, b/c we were without power until the next afternoon, and then we left for the weekend. . . but, i will tell you that husband and i saw the funnel cloud, we saw it hit the ground, and we were caught in the gusts of it,,, and that was pretty frightening… my legs got scratched and bruised due to the debris and i swear if my husband wasn’t holding my hand as we ran for cover, i would have got lifted away… that aside — all the branches that were downed, are still — well, down.¬† there are still big piles of branches and logs in lots of yards, many of these yards lining major streets and blocking the view of intersections…

how long do cities/townships/etc wait before clearing away the debris?¬† it’s been over a week now… there has been no inclement weather since then… and yet these bundles of blind spots still sit…

it’s just annoying.

and dangerous… i, for one, can’t see around some of them to see if it is safe to pull into oncoming traffic… what about someone else that is shorter or a worse driver than myself??
