legcramps - Friday Jul 26, 2013

Weight: 168.0

I scored the afternoon off work yesterday so that my uncle and I could go golfing, and about half an hour after I left work, it started to rain. And then it poured a little bit. And rained some more.

When our tee time came around, we 1) could still see it drizzling outside, and 2) were on a skype call with another uncle who is hilarious and pretty much does all the talking in a conversation. We cancelled the golf outing in favor of staying inside where it was warm and dry, and splitting some guts listening to my other uncle yak away ;)

I still managed to get my laundry done and clean the kitchen, and took my 15 minute walk in the morning while still at work.

A few of us went for DQ ice cream; I had the mini oreo blizzard. And then I saw that they have that new kind here; S'MORES. Might be going back to DQ tonight. Just saying.

Dinner was okay but I overdid it; a few slices of vegetarian pizza and a tossed garden salad. I think I overate because my water intake was far lower than usual. I'm going to try hard to make sure I get lots of water in, because it's back to Grandma's today for another dinner that will likely not be the healthiest in the world.

And if it's nice out after work, i'll take my uncle golfing. As you can tell, I really want to golf with him while he's here!

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 07/26/2013:
Mmm...ice cream is so hard to resist in warm weather! Have a good weekend.

legcramps on 07/26/2013:
Ice cream, for me, is hard to resist in any weather LOL. Yesterday was not exception as it was more chilly than not!


biscottibody59 on 07/26/2013:
Enjoy playing golf!


V on 07/26/2013:
Stupid rain :( Sorry you didn't get the chance to golf today but i see you still managed to have FUN!! Isn't that what life is about?? Yeah it is ;)

A couple of important things happened yesterday; my aunt, uncle and their kids arrived in town, and my lawn got cut. By the neighbor.

I'm telling you, the best way to get someone to do something for you is:

1) don't do it until it bothers them so much they have to

2) make it look like you've gone camping for two weeks and just didn't have time

Fortunately, my neighbor didn't cut it in anger, he just thought i'd gone with door #2. LOL.

LMAO.

Oh, Gawd, it's hilarious really.

No exercise yesterday except for my walk at lunchtime, had a nice visit with the relatives and promised a cruise around town (maybe for ice cream) with my cousins tonight and possibly a round of golf this afternoon, if I can get the time off work, although I can't see that being a problem unless all hell breaks loose.

Good eats until later on in the night when I went to a convenience store and purchased a small bag of doritos. I was very tired, but apparently not tired enough to get in my car and drive for potato chips. I don't remember the entire drive there, may have been wearing my pajama's by then, and really hope my slurred 'hellooooooo' to a fellow co-worker while waiting to purchase said chips didn't make him think I was intoxicated.

So yeah. Can't wait to see what happens today!

Nice post today, LegCramps ! It made me laugh and I really needed it.


Umpqua on 07/25/2013:
Oh fantastic on your neighbor cutting your lawn! You need to make it look like you take extended camping trips ALL the time, haha.


V on 07/25/2013:
Hahahahaha SCORE on free lawn service ;) Have a wonderful evening!


horn_of_plenty on 07/25/2013:
wow...you are so slick!!! never would I have thought to do what you did....to get the neighbor to cut my grass!?!? this is the first I've heard of someone doing this and I plan to tell my best friend about this. she'll die laughing. she hates her neighbors and...she will like this one :-D

I went golfing yesterday; did 9 holes and was pretty much exhausted by the end. Apparently, a 15 minute walk everyday at lunchtime does NOT a cardio workout make.

I had plenty of varying eats yesterday and ended slightly over calories (it was a hungry day) but I kept mainly to healthy foods and limited my snacking as well. It's all good. Lots of water too.

It had been awhile since i'd had a nice, relaxing bath instead of a hurried shower, so last night I took the time to do this. I felt very sleepy afterwards, and fell asleep fairly quickly - in comparison to my usual three hours of fidgeting, squirming, and tossing around before falling asleep. I must try to do this more often during the week.

Ball is on the schedule tonight, but I might go to a friend's bbq instead. And hopefully now that my spirit is in a better place, I can motivate myself to get the yardwork completed before the weekend; I believe my aunt and her family will be down for a visit so it would be nice if I could clean it up a bit.

Plan - coffee, rice and maybe soup?, cinammon crackers, turkey sandwich x 2, lots of water.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

You're looking good, LC.


Umpqua on 07/24/2013:
Just got the jungle/meadow known as my backyard mowed ;P Let me tell you, it's rewarding just to look out there now - hope you get a chance to play in your yard soon!


V on 07/24/2013:
I hope whatever you do this evening it will be FUN FUN FUN <3 love ya girl :)


horn_of_plenty on 07/24/2013:
it's good to relax before bed...I find I can get to sleep earlier also when I have an earlier night, overall, and don't get home as late. it's good to let the body relax :-D I love your idea of a bath, although, I guess I am not clean enough to fathom taking a bath in my bathtub hahahaha

I don't know what's going on with me lately, but I wish it would stop. I almost started bawling yesterday simply because my mother was being her typical controlling self. Even right now as I type that, my eyes rolled up. What's up? Who cares? It's never bothered me like this before. I need a mental health day. Also? I am STILL craving pickles. None of this makes any sense. I've gone through three jars in the same number of weeks. That's ridiculous.

While I go temporarily insane, here were my eats from yesterday:

Breakfast - coffee with ff creamer x 2, water with crystal light

Lunch - quinoa, wild rice, blackened chicken, water with mio

Afternoon - another water with crystal light

Dinner - turkey sandwich, lots of pickles x 2

Snack - piece of milk chocolate with nuts x 2, yogurt covered pretzels x 3

 Exercise yesterday was slo ----- pitch LOL. It was alright. Maybe today I will golf.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/23/2013:
Well there are worse things you could snack on than pickles! Glad to hear slo pitch is going well :)

legcramps on 07/23/2013:
That's very true!


OhioRaven on 07/23/2013:
Sorry, you are NO WHERE NEAR the pickle freak that I am:v) I wouldn't worry too much about your controlling Mother. People who act out in a controlling way are usually the people who are in fear of losing it. (control that is) Hey, did you watch the Open last weekend ? Great job, Phil. See ya.

legcramps on 07/23/2013:
I did watch some of it, recorded the rest so that I can watch it this weekend when I have more time. Phil was awesome :) I also recorded the LPGA Classic and can't wait to watch that!


V on 07/23/2013:
I hope this helps and true story that my MOM is NUTBAG :( I love her I guess but man is she ALOT to deal with :( LOL!!

Well my friends, it just so happened to rain on Friday as well as the weekend.

But I still managed to watch some fastball games; drive to the place my Dad used to live when he was a boy; get in a lot of visiting; eat a lot of food, and read two books.

What I didn't manage to do was the yardwork. I'm okay with this.

What I also didn't manage to do was decipher how to use my DVD player with my new(ish) cable provider. I am an Information Technology reject. I spent close to an hour trying to solve the riddle before finally getting so frustrated that I turned everything off and refused to even watch t.v.

So, no insanity DVDs until I get that figured out. I did get some walking in on the weekend, though not as much as I would've liked. Que Sera.


It's Monday! Woohoo! I can feel the adrenaline of a brand new week coming at us and kicking us in the a$$!

I was up late reading so this morning came quickly, but i'm making it through :)

Foods - coffee, yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, quinoa, wild rice, blackened chicken, pm snack, dinner might have to be subway to save some time.

Exercise - slopitch

My goal for tonight is to get the front lawn cleaned up. Gonna have to take the yard in zones now, since i've left it so long it's not something that can be done all at once. Pull the weeds, trim the trees, and mow the lawn. Do-able. Has to be done tonight, because this is the only day it's not supposed to rain!!!

V on 07/22/2013:
Girl I am an idiot when it comes to solving computer issues and I am also an Information Technology reject as well so at least we are in good company, LOL

Hope you get your goal met today, if not...Oh well, hahahaha have a good one my friend :)

I love reading, too. Romance novels haha. I really have a crazy side :-D Sorry bout all the rain, over here it's stayed quite dry!

hollybelle on 07/23/2013:
All this rain has made it hard to keep the yards up around here. I like green grass and all, but enough! Meant to tell you no matter that I have read the work slopitch a lot oon your post, Unless I stop and think about it I usually read it as "slop-itch"! Mind games!

Quite the work week it's been; lots of peeps on vacay and things are happening here that I don't know what to do about. So glad it's Friday.

Hour-by-hour:

6 AM - alarm goes off; press snooze; press snooze; groan and moan and grumble about having to get up; brush teeth and take shower

7 AM - prep for workday, 1 big mug Chai Tea Latte

8 AM - arrive at work; make coffee; begin workday

9 AM - yogurt, strawberries, blueberries; coffee w/ ff creamer

10 AM - coffee w/ ff creamer, water with crystal light

RE: water and crystal light/mio liquid - the only way I can drink the water at work is to add something to it. Otherwise? disgusting.

11 AM - water with mio

After this is the plan for the rest of today:

12 PM - baked chicken, garden salad, ff ranch dressing; walk 15 minutes

1 PM - water with crystal light

2 PM - water with mio

3 PM - search for plain, salted chips and have with garlic hummus

4 PM - workday is done! Home; pull some weeds

5 PM - turkey sandwich on whole grain, spinach, pickles, mozza cheese; vegetable soup

6 PM - water

7 PM - yogurt covered pretzels and a little bit of chocolate with nuts

8 PM - mow lawn; water; pull more weeds


I hope it doesn't rain today, because having to postpone my plans for yardwork will severely interfere with the rest of my weekend plans. Which include a lot of visiting and a very good dinner tomorrow, and lots of golf on Sunday. So, please don't rain.

s'up?

This week I started walking for 15 minutes at lunchtime, just around the building outside. Thankfully, it's been nice out.

So I mentioned that I started playing ball again. Well, last night I went directly home after playing and had to ice my knee for a couple of hours before it felt numb enough to walk around on. Not good; after getting a taste of what being back to full ability might be like, it will be incredibly difficult if I have to back off again.

Regardless, I will keep on and see what happens. I haven't been out golfing for a week or so, just because there are a lot of other things I need to be doing, and i've chosen golf as my reward after doing them. LOL, that might mean it'll be another week before I get back out on the course, but if that's what a person needs to do to get their butt moving, then so be it.

I even prioritized my days into certain tasks because i've been falling so behind on everything. Ball on Mondays and Wednesdays, yardwork on Tuesdays and Fridays (and weekends if I need to catch up), housework and laundry on Thursdays.

And i'm stubborn enough to give Insanity a try this weekend. I'll pick the easiest one and see how it goes. If it goes well enough, that's what i'll do on weekends, along with some longer walks. No use scheduling in exercise during the week if it's all I can do to keep my yard and house work from buckling under!

I recently cleaned up my eating as well; not as many bbqs happening so that helps too. Basically whole grains, veggies, fruits, some dairy, and chicken or turkey. For some reason i'm also craving pickles. Like, a LOT. Very wierd, i'm not really a fan of anything pickled.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

V on 07/18/2013:
Sup girl! Hope that your knee cooperates with you.. Good luck with your Insanity class!! Have a great evening :)

erm...

what did i say yesterday about not being lazy?

wait, what?

awe. some.


At 4pm I left work, went home, and had a snack of crackers and mozza cheese. Then, around 5pm, I tore apart my single-cup Keurig for an internal part I need in order to get a new machine. After that I had to copy some pictures to a memory card for my mother (who phoned me at work and called me a couple of names that are probably fairly indicative of my character, but still. that felt awesome.)

As I was in a low state of mind, I *thought* about doing some of the other things on my list, and then decided to just get ready for slopitch instead.

Played ball from 6:30 to 8pm; sweated. Ran the bases, which wasn't the best thing I could've done for my knee but GEEZ I had to vent somehow, you know?

And then I had dinner, which was very good - chicken, soft bun, quinoa and wild rice, and sweet peas.

Instead of cutting the grass, I read a book. Give me the Lazy medal.


07/11/13:

Breakfast - coffee with fat free creamer, water with crystal light

Lunch - chicken, soft bun, rice and sweet peas (leftovers)

PM - diet pop

Dinner - tbd?

Exercise - golf, and I wish I had a punching bag

Other - oh, just everything


Damn, I wish people didn't have such a huge affect on my mood.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/11/2013:
You're being too hard on yourself, you got in a nice game of slow pitch! I'll have to try mixing quinoa with wild rice, that sounds nice.


grannyannie on 07/11/2013:
You did great! Don't beat yourself up!


hollybelle on 07/11/2013:
Ah, get ahead of the game. When you get old, like me, you won't care too much what others think, so why not start now? LOL! Personally, I think you didn't much better than you are letting on!


biscottibody59 on 07/11/2013:
I don't blame you for letting the grass wait!


V on 07/11/2013:
Yayy for a lazy day and YES we all need them once or twice a week!! Hey how is your knee??? Have a wonderful evening <3


supercheese on 07/12/2013:
lol to your impatient comment. sorry but ive updated it!! poor knee. still hurting?


MrsD on 07/16/2013:
I read it as slop-itch and was like "What is she talking about slop-itch? what is that?" LOL!!! I hope your knee feels better and people stop standing on top of your head :)

Alright kids,

i'm sort of pissy with myself for being so lazy yesterday that it felt a chore even to wash the dishes up after dinner (one plate. one glass. a fork.) even though I did get out to the course for 9 holes.

I'm hoping to make up for my lazy ways today; must repeat mantra "effort equals accomplishment" over and over in my head.


07/10/13:

Breakfast - pecan roll, coffee with sugar, water with crystal light

Lunch - baked breaded chicken, soft bun, light mayo, ketchup, oriental-style rice

PM - diet pop

Dinner - same as lunch, OR subway (sandwich or salad)

Exercise - slo-pitch, mow lawn, pull weeds

Other - sweep floors


I have plenty to do to catch up with house work. And then there's a couple of phone calls that i've been avoiding having to make.

Must. stay. away. from. couch.

Hahahahaha!! It is so lame how us gals who live alone consider washing a plate, glass and fork a chore..LOL I guess we live a charmed life huh??? Love ya <3


hollybelle on 07/10/2013:
I am that way about mundane chores sometimes, too. There are only two of us at our house now since daughter got married in March and I am reluctant to actually clean the kitchen up entirely. It's weird. We haven't been alone in the house in 22 years since 13 months after we got married and it's a different tempo. Sounds like you been doing a lot - golf and slopitch and pulling weeds and sweeping!

It is sooooo difficult to eat well when camping... ... ... ...

Sorry, I had to stop typing for a mosquito-bite-scratching-session.

Friday: Good! Visited friend, had chicken and rice for dinner, went to bed early. Workout was loading the camping gear, of which I apparently have a lot.

Camping Weekend: Got out to the lake with minimal difficulty and a large glass of iced coffee. It rained off and on Saturday so we stayed in the trailer and played Yahtzee! and snacked on pretzels, crackers and cheese; roasted hot dogs with watermelon, pineapple and cherries. Sat out more stormy weather at a friend's cabin.

Two super awesome breakfasts with the works, cooked over the fire. One dinner of burgers and potatoes, also cooked over the fire. Swimming, tanning, a little bailey's in my coffee. More snacking.

And then we packed up and went home!

There were a lot of things I wanted and could have done yesterday once I got home. Unpacking and laundry were top of the list and I got that done, but that was it. I must've still been in camping-lazy-ass mode.


07/09/13:

Breakfast - pecan cinammon roll, mocha, water with crystal light

AM - pineapple

Lunch - chicken salad

PM - raw veggies and ranch dip, Jello pudding

Dinner - baked breaded chicken, rice, sweet peas

Exercise - mow lawn? golf? undecided.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

You're gonna have to pay for those two Super Awesome Breakfasts...maybe a second round of golf :v)
