legcramps - Thursday Sep 20, 2012

Weight: 166.0

Another long night yesterday; my eyes keep crossing i'm so tired!

I had a meeting yesterday that started at 5pm; they served sandwiches and soup, so I had 1/2 cup of cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 a ham and cheese sandwich, no dessert.

After the meeting, I treated friends to dinner at their place so that I could watch Big Brother finale and Survivor season premiere with them (since I don't have television at home). I picked up the food around 7:30 and i'd say we were eating by 8pm. We had chicken, fries and ceasar salad. Along with that, I had another mocha.

So basically I had dinner twice.

Today I managed to double up on lunch; I bought a ticket to support our local hockey team and it came with lunch - they are delivering it to work today. I also have a lunch meeting, where i'm sure we'll be served soup and sandwiches again.

And I have major leftovers from dinner yesterday. I guess my friends don't like leftovers all that much.

You know the saying "rolling in money"? Well, I feel like i'm rolling in food. And that mental image is not a pretty one. (side note - I just googled images for "rolling in food". Lame. 80% of the images were t-shirts with the Rolling Stones logo on it.)

Busy busy today! A lunch meeting, a possible trip to the city next door for a store sale, and our local hockey team's home opener tonight!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 09/20/2012:
Oh dear! I wouldn't say you had 2 dinners though, more like 1 1/2. :) Meetings where food is served is not helpful! Enjoy the game tonight anyway.


sweetpea1977 on 09/20/2012:
hahaha, rolling in food!I think only foods I'd roll in are chocolate and peanut butter. :)

I've had two dinners before. In fact, it happened a lot in college because I never went to bed early....because I was studying...yea, that was it...studying!!

I hope you get some sleep soon!


V on 09/20/2012:
Yeah rolling in food! LOVE it.. So you don't have a telly at home? How do you watch all your shows? LOL hey I have so been meaning to ask if you ever found out who your secret admirer that leaves deer heads and obscure items on your doorstep? Just curious,LOL Have a good evening!


Umpqua on 09/21/2012:
I'm a big fan of 2nd breakfast myself haha. I hope you can catch up on sleep this weekend, have a good one!

It sure feels like it should be Friday today.

Happy Hump Day! All downhill from here!

That's a little scary for a Wednesday morning.

I stayed up well past my bedtime last night, and i'm a crazy wreck this morning LOL. The girls got together and waxed legs at my place; I put out some cheese and crackers and we had a pretty good time, considering we were having the HAIR on our legs RIPPED out repeatedly. Good times.

Today is going to be a busy day, so i'd better get to drinking up the pot of coffee we've got on the burner at work. Work 8-5, meeting 5-8, Big Brother finale! It will be hard to say if I will get to see all of it, but so long as I see what happens at the end. I plan on grabbing some dinner as I walk out of the meeting, and watching BB over at a friend's place. And then after Big Brother - Survivor season premiere!!!!

It might be another long night.

Breakfast - mocha, granola bar

Lunch - stuffed green pepper

PM Snack - apple

Dinner - TBD

Oh fun, waxing!! LOL.

RYC yea, balance can be so hard to find. I'm working on figuring it out.


V on 09/19/2012:
Hahahahaha! Love the pic :) I hope your day was quick and painless..I can't believe that I am saying this but I was so happy that it didn't rain so i could work and get in a little social intercourse ;) LOL Have a good evening, go to bed early tonight!

My plans with D fell through last night, so I went to a friend's for coffee and a visit, then to the grocery store for a few things, and when I got home one of my favorite people had taped Big Brother for me and left the tape sitting between my doors :) I am now all caught up on Big Brother and I cannot wait for the finale tomorrow night!

My stuffed green peppers out of the crockpot turned out delicious! I used extra lean ground beef and I think that's what made it for me... I love my red meat LOL. I'm even eating all the TOMATOES in them, which - in the past - has been an occurrence best saved for blue moons.

I also did a little reading last night, but headed to bed early and got a good sleep. This morning's workout was Insanity Plyo Cardio. I don't know if you can tell, but i'm staying away from the Max Insanity workouts for now, while I get my back and hip issues worked out.

I need to get my head back into doing the exercises from the therapist. They're really good exercises, but i'm just soooooo lazy!

Breakfast - mocha, glutamine

Lunch - stuffed green pepper

PM Snack - apple, granola bar

Dinner - tbd (last night was crackers and cheese...)

LOTS more water!

Sorry plans with D didn't work, but at least you made good use of your time otherwise. I haven't had stuffed green peppers in ages - sounds good.


V on 09/18/2012:
Yeah before you take it to the max, make sure your back and hip issues are resolved..Your peppers sounds amazing! I have to make some.. As far as my day well it was a wash..It rained all day and I put my jammies on after I resolved that the day would be spent indoors. It was quite boring to say the least..LOL Have a good evening <3

My weekend was pretty lame. I didn't do a lot of things I wanted to do, like yardwork and getting into the city to see Dad. My headache from Thursday lasted until partway through Saturday, even through my massage on Friday!

My massage therapist worked me over again on Friday, and then asked me what I had done the weekend before to get my body all out of whack (my hips were out of place). I said i'd gone golfing, and her eyes got that puppy-dog excited look and she asked if she could come next time LOL.

On Saturday our Library had a book sale. Paperbacks were 25 cents each, so I stocked up BIG TIME. Yes, my bookshelves are now overflowing and I love it.

Yesterday I pulled weeds in the backyard and now i'm SURE my neighbours don't hate me quite as much as they did before. Once I get the garden done, they may even bring me a bottle of wine to celebrate. Or maybe they'll ignore me as usual and i'll buy myself the wine and get drunk on the back deck. I don't know why they dislike me so much...

I made stuffed green peppers in the crockpot yesterday as well. Boy, they smelled good but I couldn't wait for dinner so I had chicken and french fries instead. I brought two stuffed peppers to work with me today - I sure hope they're good 'cause they look and smell delicious!

I have a few errands today, then a movie night planned with D so we'll see how that goes.

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - stuffed peppers x 2

PM Snack - peach

Dinner - popcorn, crackers and cheese, tbd

Exercise - cleaning

LOTS of water! Don't forget the water!

Umpqua on 09/17/2012:
Those peppers sound yummy, I need to make some soon!


V on 09/17/2012:
Hahaha well I would go ahead and buy the wine myself just in case the neighbors forget to ;) Good for you getting around to weeding.So movie night ehh? His place? Yours? Theater? I expect a full report tomorrow/tonight, whenevs no biggie..Yes it is :) Oh RYC yes this bieatch tried to test the wrong broad, as she so quickly realized..hahaha man people need to lay off the haretade! Have fun tonight my friend <3

It was so windy yesterday! I thought i'd see some trees knocked over and some damage to homes this morning, but nothing seemed any different as I drove to work today. The wind needs to stay away today so that I can get outside and start working on cleaning up the yard for fall.

I went on a HUGE grocery run yesterday; it was Ten for Ten Days so I stocked up on frozen chicken, crackers, rice, and pasta sauce. I also now have an abundance of fresh vegetables in the fridge and this weekend i'm going to try my hand at Stuffed Peppers in the crockpot!

I got home pretty late, so I didn't get much accomplished in terms of evening exercise or housework. I did the exercises as prescribed by the massage therapist, and then snacked on some mix while reading. I also got a few phone calls done and finally made some plans with D. We'll see how that goes.

Breakfast - mocha, bagel

Lunch - steak, potatoes, coleslaw

Snack PM - Ack! I forgot fruit AGAIN! Good thing I brought granola bars.

Dinner - Chicken and rice sounds good.

Exercise - Insanity! P&R completed early AM; Exercises for therapy x 2; a little light walk after work would be nice if it's nice outside.

I might take tomorrow off work, to get started on all the work I have to do this weekend. There is some time I have banked that I can take. I also need to visit Dad this weekend and see how he's doing. Lots to do!

liza36 on 09/13/2012:
Definitely take the day off if you can. I do that sometimes too. Sometimes work just interferes with my life! Have a good one.


V on 09/13/2012:
Good job on getting it all in and RYC..LOL just say NO to the "Office Dude" ;) hahahahaha <3

Much better day yesterday. My back was still sore, but nothing like it was on Monday thank goodness.

Right after work I went to get my hair cut and colored. I should take a picture and show you guys - I think it looks awesome!

I stopped at the grocery store on my way home and picked up chicken and rice for dinner because I just wasn't feeling porkchops. By the time dinner was cooked, I had tidied up the living room and kitchen and started the dishes.

After eating I continued to clean things up, finished a load of laundry that had been sitting in the dryer for a couple of days, and knocked some things off my to do list. I felt WAY more accomplished than on Monday ;)

After that, I was invited to F's for... tea. Strange. But then company came over and saved me from having to tell him I was busy when I really wasn't. F is strange. That is all. My company stayed for a little while, and when they left I cleaned up after them and decided to call it a night.

This morning I woke up with tonnes of energy so I did an Insanity workout before getting ready for work. When I walked into the office, one of my co-workers lost it over my hair ;)

Breakfast - mocha, bagel

Lunch - chicken and rice

PM Snack - oh crap! I forgot to bring an apple.

Dinner - steak and potatoes

Geez. I could really use some vegetables in my life.

I wanna see a pic of your hair!! Who the hell is F and why is he so strange? Did D come over? hahahaha

I barely got through the workday yesterday; my lower back was in horrendous pain! I hope today will be better...

Breakfast - bagel, peanut butter, mocha

Lunch - cafeteria (lazy bones!)

PM Snack - apple, peach

Dinner - porkchop, rice, vegetables

Exercise - yoga workout

Lots of water!

I didn't get anything done last night; instead, I layed on the couch trying to find the best position that didn't give me as much pain. I took advil, but I didn't have any muscle relaxants so it didn't help a whole lot. I did my exercises probably five times yesterday just to try and relieve some of the pain; it was incredible. My therapist will definitely be hearing about this little turn of events!

Obviously, laying on the couch all night provided me the perfect opportunity to stew and think about things. I managed to talk myself out of doing something I really wanted to do. Go figure.

grannyannie on 09/11/2012:
Sorry about your back. I hate lower back pain! Frequent and gentle stretching will help a lot. Hope you're better soon.

Weather is being neurotic today. Sun for 15 mins. Rain for 10. Sun. Rain. Sun. Rain. Arghh...


V on 09/11/2012:
Oh No :( I hope your back feels better by now..If not try a few cat stretches or lie on your back and do the single leg side twist like Skip does in that yoga class I sent ya..A minute on each side might do a world of wonders for your back..If you are in severe pain(I hope not) you might want to see a doctor..In any case I hope it resolves soon <3

Breakfast - mocha; apple

Lunch - meatballs, boiled potatoes

PM Snack - peach

Dinner - porkchop, potatoes and canned beans.

Exercise - walk, 1 hour

Lots of water

I got my massage on Friday after work, and boy did she ever go full force! When I finally got home all I wanted to do was collapse on the couch and call it a day. She really worked my muscles hard, and she even gave me some homework! This chick is ca-razy! But I like it LOL. I have four exercises I have to do twice a day, plus I need to be more aware of how i'm sitting in my chair at work, and how often I clamp my jaw together. These things are all contributing to tightness in my neck which is giving me headaches, limited range of motion in my neck, and tightness in my piformis, which could lead to a whole bottle of issues if I let it. I've been drinking as much water as possible, but I STILL feel sore more than two days later!

I didn't accomplish much on the weekend besides some exercising, and i've pretty much dedicated the next one to getting things done. Hopefully I don't get off track. I went golfing on Saturday with D and that went well. Then later on it didn't go so well. Then it just turned into one very long night. Sunday I wasted time watching movies and taking naps all day long.

I have a lot to do today. Guess i'd better get to it!

Have a great week! A good massage is pure bliss, isn't it?!


hollybelle on 09/10/2012:
Your massage therapist sounds like a real keeper! I love that she gives homework. That's a lot like my chiropractor. His suggestions help a bunch, too.


thenewMLE on 09/10/2012:
Hopefully between the massage and the homework you will ward off the aches and pains. I was looking into getting an ergonomic chair for work and trying to sit with better posture. I had a massage on my trip and it was amazing! Hope you have a productive day!


V on 09/10/2012:
Your masseuse is def a keeper! That is so awesome that she gave you some techniques to take home with ya! Have a good one <3

One of my kids got me a massage a couple of years ago on mother's day. It was WONDERFUL. I am defintely a bit jealous of you.

Yesterday was another good day to write up in the books.

I cooked my meatballs and tried to wait patiently for them to finish cooking before digging in. I usually eat dinner earlier than most people (like, 5pm... or right when I get home from work at 4pm...) so it was hard to wait, I was hungry. Man, were they worth the wait! I spiced them up with some chili sauce I found at the grocery store, and served boiled potatoes and fresh cucumber salad. The sweet part about making a large batch of meatballs is that I now have enough leftovers to last me for a long time. I may have to freeze some of it.

Today I was able to get some exercise in. The undersoles of my feet are still showing signs of a rash, but I think if I keep socks and runners on it might be okay. I did another yoga workout and at lunchtime i'm going to do some walking. Wasn't up early enough for Insanity today!

Then later i'm having dinner with my BFF to celebrate her becoming a business owner! I am so excited for her! I will have to order us a couple glasses of bubbly :)

Right after work today I made a massage appointment FINALLY! so i'm really looking forward to that. Goals for today are to drink as much water as possible before and after my massage.

After I drink my coffee quota, of course.

Have a great weekend everyone! I'm freaking excited about mine!

Mornings are normally hard for me. I wander around the house, not quite awake, not quite asleep, not really looking at anything in particular. I have to shower every morning or I don't feel completely awake until mid-morning. Working out is even better; the surge of adrenaline really helps me to face the day. Today was no exception. And without a morning workout scheduled, what did that mean for me?

That meant I forgot to put my ingredients into the crockpot (meatballs) this morning. Not a huge deal, i'll go home for lunch and do it then, or do it right after work and eat a little later tonight. The little things just piss me off sometimes, you know?

I got another chunk of to-do items done yesterday, and i'm rearing to keep the streak going today. If all goes as planned, I should only have yardwork left for this weekend. Why i'm doing my spring cleaning in the fall i'll never know, but I need to act on the impulse or it'll never get done!

And i'm glad I may not have much to do this weekend, because D called last night and we're planning on golfing a lot of the weekend away. I was surprised that he called after my freak show, but then I realized I am ALL THAT and of course he would call heheh because who would want to GIVE UP on the PRIZE that is me? Anyhoo. I hope he enjoys sarcasm.

liza36 on 09/06/2012:
Of course D would call, of course YOU are the prize! I'll look forward to details after the weekend.

It's always so nice to have the to-do list shrink. Mine is only growing longer at the moment. Enjoy your day.


hollybelle on 09/06/2012:
I'm not surprised he called anyway - what's life without a little excitment! Have fun golfing.


grannyannie on 09/06/2012:
Your mornings sound like mine. I'm in a daze for a while.

I do spring cleaning when the motivation hits me - doesn't matter when!

RYC: we'll likely do some overnight Glasgow trips, at least for husband's birthday in November. No big trips until January.


V on 09/06/2012:
Hahahahahahahahahaha :) The eye is on the prize for D..Okay please stay calm don't do anything spastic and by all means if you need some moral support/courage/thoughts/ideas please send me a line or two, I got ya..I have faith that you will do well on your outing!
