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…

For the girls…

ok,

so, this post is definitely for females… all suggestions welcome…

i have previously come to the conclusion that i’m in dire need of more sports bras…

as it is, i have to wear two of them when working out…

so, if i work out twice in one shift — that’s 4 that i have to utilize… i have 7 total… :-\

i told my husband that i need to invest in more, and he said why  – you have so many…

i informed him that i need to wear 2, so… not really…

he said oh, well, can you go to lane bryant and get some?

o_O  … um…. no… that store is for larger people, not just people with large boobs…

he said OH…

(it waaaaas funny… but… still)

anyways, i need suggestions for what and where to buy

i wear a 32D/DD … and i don’t like the bounce factor AT ALL.

and i like to run… ((wellllll…. like is a bit of a stretch, prefer is a better word…))

i just don’t like to spend tons of money on them… especially if i want to buy a few of them…

i normally get them at target … but Champion changed the way they make them… and it’s just not as supportive…

so, i mean i guess i can buy them there still, just 2 at a time…

but geez oh pete — 

peeling those suckers off when i’m done with a workout — D I F F I C U L T

so, new followers out there, old followers, ANYONE… please help me out??

i’d much appreciate it…

running and running and running

so,

i’ve complained about it before, indeed i have..

and i’ve finallllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy conquered my running demons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i’ve been running 3x a week for 2 months… (for the most part)

and i’ve been struggling. tremendously.

*le sigh*

friday, i ran for 2 miles before i walked… and i was planning on walking the 2 miles back, but i ended up running more than i anticipated!!!

today; i realized that i see my husband in two weeks.

and i look awful. i don’t look like i’ve been running for 2 months… which i guess isn’t that long — but it seems forever long to me!!!

so, instead of just doing the running 3/week — i’m going to be going to the gym every day, on tues & thurs after school… and thennnnn i might also go after school on mondays and wednesdays too… my only issue is the lack of workout clothes and the amount i sweat, and the fact that this isn’t my house, so i can’t do laundry as often as i would need to… i went today to look at some new workout clothes, and did not have any luck…

boooo hissssss
can i just tell you how difficult it is to find a sports bra that works for me… as it is, i have to wear 2 of them right now…
i wish i didn’t have to, b/c at the end of my workout (and my sweatiness) it’s difficult to get those off… ((tmi??))
 so, yeah. . .

but today, i ran a mile and a half — then did

50 crunches
12 pushups
1 min plank
30 sec side plank (1 side)
1 min bridge
30 sec side plank (2nd side)
15 pushups
1 min plank
30 sec side plank (both sides)
50 crunches
1 min plank
2 min bridge
50 crunches
50 oblique twists w/15 lb weights
then ran a mile and a half back

and wouldn’t ya know it – i feel fatter at the end of the day than i did at the beginning.. and that was before i ate anything… (well yogurt for breakfast after my workout)

so i have two more workouts in the plan for the week; we’ll see how those work…

i have to either get over the fact that i’m going to have to wash clothes more often (i don’t wanna get bitched at for wearing shorts instead of my capris; and i only have two pairs)
or i’m going to have to just get more stuff….
which means spending money that i shouldn’t spend………

grrrrrrrrrrrrr

there is no proper ending for this blog.

the end.

~peace out yo

Run Forrest Runnnn

So, in order to get my wobbly butt into shape, i decided to take up running. . . b/c i need to be able to run – for the PRT… granted, i have no problems passing it anytime i take it, but i would like to be better. and i would like to be less jiggly… { i have seen SOME results… but, without a scale, i can only see the way some of my clothes fit better… i still feel quite flabby… and very untoned…}
i know that i need to exercise more than just running; but my main concern is running… i want to be a good runner… unfortunately . . . i’m not. 

i have been running every monday, wednesday & friday since i got to virginia. . . i should be infinitely better than i am… but — i’m not. i run 2 – 4 miles 3 times per week… unfortunately a lot of that ‘running’ is walking – b/c i get the infamous side cramp, or some part of my body just HURTS… and i really hate hurting so badly!!! plus i want to get the lean look that runners have… *sigh*

on some days, i run to the gym, and do a mini workout ((mainly abs)), then i run back to the schoolhouse…

i am 98% positive that my running form is AWFUL… but, i don’t know what i can do about it. . .

i got new shoes when i got here, b/c i was getting shin splints every single time i ran… so i got RYKA brand shoes… they seemed like a good choice, well; they still seem like a good choice, i don’t get shin splints anymore… and they breathe very well… which makes my feet not feel sweaty… which of course is always a good thing.. .

so anyways, with all of that information — my point is that i was unable to run the week before last; and i got punched in the hip last weekend, but i started back up last week, did it my 3 days; and then today being monday – was my next day running…as i was running… both of my hips felt like they were locking up. . . it felt so constricted… like they were folding in on themselves… it hurt so bad… 😦

additionally,

we started something new today – which was the same day that i was going to add a structured workout regimen to my thrice weekly routine. . . but we had to meet up with the rest of the command and do our ‘warm up’ with them. . . which felt like an actual workout to me. . . so, that kind of kept me from doing my gym routine in the middle; b/c of the time that it took. . . which just means that i’ll have to start it up on tuesdays and thursdays and one day during the weekend… no big deal; i just ahve to actually discipline myself to work out every day but one… *sigh* i suppose if i don’t wanna feel fat; i gotta work harder? yeahhh… thought so. . .

 

ugh!!! obnoxious kitten

so i lost a couple pounds, which is great!

i worked out on monday for the first time in a gym for over an hour.
holy whoa.

i ended up overdoing it… and made myself kinda sick… but, it’s ok. . . physical therapy yesterday kicked my ass. i was introduced to a new routine, and it included a lot of ab work . . . and that KILLED. but, i’ll get there.

i had other things to write about, but my damn kitten keeps pissing me off. . .

how in the hell do you keep obnoxious little monsters off the counter?? and out of the kitchen?? she’s a horrible little girl that disobeys blatantly. lol
