legcramps - Monday Jul 30, 2012

Weight: 166.0

I did my Max Plyo class early this morning. I'm not sure why it's so much easier to get up early on Monday than it is the rest of the week... anyways, I had plenty of time to shower and get ready for work afterwards. Very nice way to start the week!

Last week of insanity!!! I'm excited, except for one thing... I leave early AM for my trip on Saturday, which means I can't get the VERY LAST workout in before my trip! I will try to do a double this week, but i'm not making any promises! Still, so happy to have made it through *almost* and can't wait until I get back from my trip to go at it again!

On Saturday, after core cardio and balance class, I went over to grandma's to watch a parade (it goes right past her place), then out for lunch with my aunt and uncle. Then I went GOLFING yay! with my uncle in extreme heat. I drank two beers afterwards, like they were water. Boi was it hot out. Went home, felt a little drunk, cracked another beer haha. Then I went back over to grandma's for dinner (I love it when other people feed me). After I ate, I felt like I needed a nap so I went home.

Around 10pm, a few friends showed up and we sat out on the deck with drinks. I think I had another two beer. There was a street dance in town, and I live about two blocks away from where they set up, so we decided to check it out. We stayed to the end, seriously we were the very last people to leave! And I had my fill of beer; I thought my eyes were swimming in it by the end of the night. We also had alabama slammers (drop shot). I am surprised I could walk home. All my favorite stalkers and talkers found me throughout the night, and I am once again unindated with text messages and propositions. Yay. But it was fun, and I may even have missed my stalkers and talkers *gasp* just a bit LOL!!!

Well, I have a to-do list of things to get done today so i'd better get at it. First up - get through the workday!

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

V on 07/30/2012:
LOL!! Similar indeed :) Yeah it is nice having a fan club at times ;) I would have totally did your laundry but i got the message too late :P Yep cleaning and all that jazz? Wayy overrated..What time is your flight on Saturday? I am sure it is early..Fitting in a Cardio Core and Balance class isn't bad for a double workout day..Anyhoo I am sure you are excited about your trip :) Have a good day girly!


V on 07/30/2012:
Okay I stand corrected, I was looking at last week's schedule but Thursday might be a good day to do Max Cardio and save the CCB class for evening since it is easier, and perhaps add Cardio abs on Friday since it would only take 16 minutes extra..You could save that class til Friday evening if you have to work? Just a thought..LOL


V on 07/30/2012:
P.S. I am so proud of you for sticking this out with me :)

Insanity Max Interval class this morning. I was breathing pretty hard by the end of it!

Glutamine smoothie, coffee

Looks like it's going to be a warm day today, mid 20's. I went to sleep early last night and am feeling pretty refreshed; now if only I had made myself a massage appointment! My shoulders are killing me!

Plans for the weekend:

Friday - If I have energy tonight i'd like to pull some weeds and see what's in the garden. If not, I should at least clean the bathroom.

Saturday - Drive to city to see Dad; do laundry and clean kitchen; pull weeds. Walk around uptown (there's a festival in town this weekend); possibly go to a street dance.

Sunday - More yardwork; clean living room and mud room; tidy upstairs.

If I can get the inside of the house spotless, i'll be happy. I like coming home from a trip to a clean house :)

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

liza36 on 07/27/2012:
I like coming home to a clean house after a trip too. I always at least have to vacuum before leaving. I finally got to my yard the other day...scary! Sounds like it's on you plan too. Have a great weekend.


grannyannie on 07/27/2012:
I like coming home to a clean house as well. Sounds like nice weekend planned. Enjoy!


Umpqua on 07/27/2012:
Glutamine smoothie sounds interesting - I take it you're using a powder? Hope you have a great weekend!


supercheese on 07/27/2012:
Mid twentys is warm??? GEEZ! it feels like 110 here in DC!


hollybelle on 07/27/2012:
Go Insanity workout woman!


V on 07/27/2012:
We DEF deserve massages :) I was pretty beat at the end of class this morning as well thanks to the plank punches :P Yayyy for CPR class tomorrow <3

I played ball again yesterday so I didn't get the cardio abs class in. I really wasn't expecting to. This morning was a recovery class and, as i've said before, it's really not much of a recovery class! I was pretty dead by the end of it, but I have a big burst of energy for the morning. And I get to spend it sitting on my butt working :(

So the deal for today is... OMG! I FORGOT TO LET CAT #2 OUT!

Very uncool, legcramps.

So the deal for today, first and foremost, is to leave work to let Cat #2 out because I don't need to put any more strain on that relationship since i've already scared him to death once. And he's old. And I feel sorry for him.

Then, I will get through the workday. I have to leave early today because I have my second appointment with the Public Health nurse to get another immunization shot before my trip. While i'm in the city, I need to look for sandals. When I get back home, I need to visit the dog park and disperse more poop bags.

If i'm back in time, i'll absolutely, without a doubt, cut the grass. Yep. That's what i'll do. For sure. If i'm back in time.

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

V on 07/26/2012:
LOL! Agreed on the Max Recovery, you have to read my entry today :) I am sure at some point you will get around to either getting the goat, mowing it yourself or paying some kid to do it.I say get a kid in your neighborhood to do it ;) have a good evening!

I can barely walk today. My knees are not as sore as they were yesterday, but oh boy! are my thighs dying right now. It even hurts to lift my foot to the gas pedal. Like, everything hurts. Really not kidding.

After work yesterday I went to look after Cat #1. One of the owners came home early and was at home, so I got out of having to lay on a recliner and watch t.v. Damn. Instead I went home and cooked dinner because I was starving. I'd had yogurt, fruit, granola, and grapes up until dinner. Well, and coffee. So I was hungry, is what i'm getting at.

By the time the food cooked and I ate and cleaned up after myself, it had started to rain outside. There goes another opportunity to cut the grass. Oh well. Too bad. Just doesn't seem to be working out for me. haha.

I should really take a picture of my backyard so that you are aware of what an awful state it's in.

I should also thank my neighbour for being embarassed enough of me to cut my front boulevard. That oughta tell you something right there. Great neighbours.

Anyways I watched the rain for awhile, really wierd storm - lots of wind going in crazy directions, read a book. I should come clean here... I bought the first six books in a series about a female bounty hunter. Anyone see the movie "One for the Money"? Anyways, I was gonna take a few with me on my trip, for something to do on the plane. I received them last week, on friday.

*clearing throat*

I'm on the last one. The sixth. I read five books in three days.

So I bought another six. There are 18 books in the series, thank goodness. I shouldn't get them much before wednesday of next week, so there should be a couple left for me to take ;) whew.

I did manage to get through Max Cardio this morning, but no abs class. Maybe later. Maybe never. Can you tell it's starting to wear me down? I love the energy I get from insanity classes, and I love that I can do it and get it over with in the morning, and I love Shaun T! But these tough workouts everyday are wearing me out. I'm much more of a playgirl, in that i'd rather get my exercise "playing", i.e. ball, golf, wallyball, etc. But I will persevere and get through it, and continue with it as well! Just not every day!

Ok, enough talking. Get to work!

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

grannyannie on 07/25/2012:
Wow! 5 books in 3 days? You've got me beat! Hope all your aches ease up soon!


V on 07/25/2012:
Just keep in mind that you only have 1 week and 3 days until the program is over and it is back to being a playgirl :) I can't wait to see ya in the free tee <3 I hope your thighs feel better..



legcramps - Tuesday Jul 24, 2012

Weight: 166.0

So yesterday after work I headed over to look after Friend's Cat and get my t.v. fix in. I almost fell asleep on their recliner, so comfy. I had to slap some water on my face to wake up, then fed and watered the cat and left to have dinner. I hogged that down (chicken and potatoes) within ten minutes, and got ready for ball.

My first two at-bats were awful, but after that I found my groove and didn't miss a beat. It was so hot and muggy out; I was drenched with sweat once I was back at home. After a nice cool shower, I checked my to-do list. Cut grass, weed garden, pack, start a travel blog so the family can follow along...

Of course, I ambled to the couch and read a bit instead. Then I fell into bed and slept like the dead until this morning. Max plyo class was tough; my knees are hurting like the dickens from running around so much at the ball game. I had to slather on some Icy Cold after my shower.

I stumbled around getting ready for work, then went to let out another Friend's Cat. He didn't want to go outside, so I fed him some soft food and tried again. Still didn't want to. I ended up being a meany and picked him up and turned on the stern voice to get him outside. I sure hope he doesn't run away because I scared the living daylights out of him...

I tried not to look at the garden on my way to the car this morning. Avoidance is the key to procrastination, you know.

LeakingLife on 07/24/2012:
Anyone who takes care of someone else's cat deserves a special medal. You're a waaay better person than I'll ever be:-)

RYC: Form. I just get out and walk. I don't think about it much beyond that.


liza36 on 07/24/2012:
You're a good friend to watch their cat.

So I plan to get to my garden (weed patch) tomorrow...how about you? It's such a pain, I know!


V on 07/24/2012:
Get the pet goat! LOL Sorry your knees are giving you grief.. Make sure you modify the moves if you need to in Max Cardio tomorrow <3


Umpqua on 07/25/2012:
LOL on avoiding your gardens, I've been there. Good work on the that plyo class!


sweetpea1977 on 07/25/2012:
I want a recliner to nap in. We're hoping to get at least one (two would be better!) down the road.

I've successfully avoided my gardens since moving into my house. Well, thats not completely true. We murdered the kudzu (type of invasive vine that grows a foot per day), smothered it with some sort of gardening tarp, and covered it with black mulch. We also hedge all the ugly bushes the previous owners planted. But thats about it. If I had the time and money, I'd bushhog the whole front yard and start completely over!

I did take Friday off re: insanity, and fell asleep quite early that night.

I didn't wake up until after 9 on Saturday morning. Made some breakfast, did some laundry, insanity Max cardio and cardio abs, sweated, collapsed on the couch, icksnayed cutting the grass or weeding the garden. Priorities, people!

I was up bright and early Sunday morning, fresh as a flower, no sign of sinus congestion. I took a decongestant anyways, just to be sure, then did my Core Cardio & Balance class. A quick shower later and I was on my way to the city to see Dad. He's down another few pounds, and i've resorted to mumbling things under my breath since he doesn't listen to me anyways.

I hung out at a friends when I got home, watching their t.v. and looking after their cat while they're away. Picked up dinner on the way home, looked at the backyard, grimaced at the tall weeds and overgrown lawn, then pushed it out of my mind and took a long bath.

I was up and at 'em once again this morning, getting the max interval circuit out of the way nice and early. I'm not sure if i'll do the fit test though, not a whole lot of time today. Work, then check on cat, panic about what I still need to get or do before my trip, eat quickly, play slo-pitch game tonight.

And the saga of the unkempt lawn continues...

Umpqua on 07/23/2012:
Sounds like a pretty relaxing weekend and yay for getting your Insanity in!


LeakingLife on 07/23/2012:
Sometimes it pays more dividends to take the bath than it does to do the lawn--here's to a good week!


V on 07/23/2012:
Oh well, you can always get a pet goat to take care of the unkept lawn ;) LOL Great job on getting M i class done, you can always do the fit test another day of there is not enough time..Have fun at slo pitch tonight! Hit a homer <3


supercheese on 07/24/2012:
Glad youre feelin better!!


liza36 on 07/24/2012:
I happen to have the same saga of the unkempt lawn. I'm determined to get to it...tomorrow.

Have a great day. Glad the congestion has left.

Yesiree... I have a cold.

It was almost painful trying to make it to the end of the workday yesterday. I'm not being dramatic at all. Sarcasm.

But really, everything hurt. My neck, my shoulders, my head, my eyes, everything from my chest up.

I got home and died on the couch for a bit. When I woke up I was so angry. Just mad. Instantly. For no reason.

I ate Subway for dinner and replied to some e-mails and texts, finished the book I was reading. Tried to sleep. couldn't.

So I baked around three dozen cupcakes last night. this morning. at some point during the night, because I couldn't get my eyes to stay closed. I kept imagining I was hearing voices, or could feel someone standing over me. My eyes would snap open, and then i'd struggle to calm down enough to close them again.

Red velvet, with diet sprite. Ever try that? Worked out quite well considering my competency as a baker. Buttermilk icing. Brought some to work, but oh so very many still left.

Anyone else bake when they can't sleep? I have a past history with this.

Insanity class has not been done yet for today; my hope is to do it as soon as I get home from work. Who knows if i'll even be standing by that point.

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

liza36 on 07/20/2012:
I'm so sorry you have a full-blown cold. No, I've never baked when I couldn't sleep. That would be dangerous to have baked goods in my house. I've heard of using diet soda in cakes but have never tried it. The red velvet with icing sounds so good!

Get some rest this weekend.


supercheese on 07/20/2012:
OH! i bake when I can't sleep....Bake and cook. No idea why!


V on 07/20/2012:
I hope that you are feeling better now <3


hollybelle on 07/20/2012:
Red velvet cake and diet sprite? anything with Red Velvet would be wonderful! Hope you feel better. Maybe good to skip Insanity until you are rid of the cold. Rest and take care.

Oh yawn.

I spent the evening catching up on True Blood season 5, then reading (unfortunately I read well into the night). This morning when I woke up, my eyes were tiny slits, with puffy swelling all around, as if i'd cried through the whole night. But my throat is scratchy, so it might be a cold of some sort. I knew it! Of course this would happen right before my trip

I was starving this morning after my workout; my smoothie didn't quite cut it and so I hunckered into a giant cookie as well. I still have half of it left; trying to work on it slowly (crumb by tiny crumb) to keep anymore hunger pangs away until lunchtime.

Am not feeling generous in nature today at all... simply put, that means any little thing could set me off. Should be an interesting day. Perhaps I should just go home and cuddle with the pillows under a heavy fog of decongestant?

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

liza36 on 07/19/2012:
Sorry you're not feeling to well. Rest and a decongestant sound good. Hope you can do that.


Umpqua on 07/19/2012:
That stinks about not feeling well, feel better soon. I was skeptical about this season of True Blood, in the beginning I was really thinking they jumped the shark. It has definitely improved over the last couple of episodes though, I caught up last night too. Looks like Allen Ball isn't directing now and I'm sure that has something to do with it....Not sure if you read the books but they've really strayed way off from the series, especially with this Fairy business. And I'll just stop right there before I get carried away ;)


V on 07/19/2012:
Oh no! I am hoping that you will be 100% before vacay..RYC I too felt a little sore today too and extra hungry..LOL we need that fuel for the Insaneness.. I was a little shocked to see that we have Cardio Core and balance this week..I am sure this will help out alot..If you are interested, I could send you a 20 minute yoga class(via fb message) that will def give a quick painless extended stretch..Let me know i will be happy to send it to you...Have a good one..Oh BTW I wish we could buddy up during the workouts like the Insanity crew does in the Max classes <3 That would so rock if we lived near each other!!!

Insanity is done; max interval plyometrics. I am trying to think about what to do after V pulls me through this last part of Insanity. When I get back from my trip, i'll need to buckle down and make some commitments. I was thinking about doing Insanity over again, because I love Shaun T, except every two or three days instead of every day, and adding in running, cycling and yoga DVDs or other workouts on the other days. I'm really itching to use my bike since there are a few of you here that are making me jealous with your speedy cycle work! LOL.

Now I am sipping on some coffee at work and trying to get organized for the workday.

I am once again going through golf withdrawal. If only it would stop raining. Ball is scheduled for tonight; we'll see if it gets cancelled - I think it's too wet to play, so what should I do instead? Oh? Watch True Blood season 5, you say?

Ok.

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

supercheese on 07/18/2012:
Hows the insanity results for you! When I finished insanity I didnt lose much weight, but I did lose about 2 inches and my legs have never been stronger.


grannyannie on 07/18/2012:
Good idea to have so much variety to your workouts. Wish I could ride my bike (instead of just the spin bike) but the weather won't cooperate.

Enjoy your trip with your mom! Should be interesting.


thenewMLE on 07/18/2012:
I LOVE my bike!! Holly peaked my interest when I first got here and I really credit that for the decent scale movement. I have never done a DVD workout and wanted to get BBL and do it with my daughter, but I bought a sofa instead!! The price of the sofa was one thing, but it changed the configuration of my room and I don't have any more floor space. I can't even lay on the floor without hitting the sofa, the huge ottoman or the TV. I'm still not giving up on eventually doing the BBL, but I have to find somewhere to do it. I also bought a zumba xbox kinnect game and now I don't have enough depth for the camera to record the motions. Oh, well, at least I can ride my bike!!! (do it, do it, do it.....!!!!)


V on 07/18/2012:
Creating your own program sounds like a winner to me! There are so many classes to choose from including the extra ones Max Sports and Max Upper, not to mention Insane Abs and Fast and furious.. I am def doing another round for sure..My next program is Asylum, depending on how much I like it, I might do Asylum 2 and then do another round of Insanity.. Then again I told Sweetpea that I might do Insanity with her(I think Aug 13th is her ETA on starting)Yep, LOVES me some Shaun T <3 Hahahaha ;)


LeakingLife on 07/19/2012:

This glutamine supplement is the cat's meow; I am not nearly as sore as I expected to be after jumping back into Insanity.

Max Interval Circuit today. My knees are giving me some trouble, and I really hate planks. That about sums it up

I did some thinning out of the suitcase last night and tried another dry run to see if everything would fit. I think i'm getting closer! LOL! A few key things still to do (like exchange some cash and line up house-care) and i'm ready freddy! The next three weeks until lift-off will fly by. Must also remember: not everything has to turn into an argument with your Mother. Let her be right if she's so darned stubborn about it. Even though you know YOU are the one who's right

Ok, so, not even my back hurts today! I just think this is so great. I noticed a little bit of a stuffy nose this morning, so I took a decongestant STAT. Hopefully it won't give me any trouble.

I have a ton of energy right now, but by the time I leave to go home after work I know i'll be dragging my bum behind me. I need to remember to run a few errands before I hit the couch.

Geez.

I just remembered that I forgot to take anything out of the freezer for dinner tonight.

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

Are you going overseas? You must be really excited! I love the glutamine, it definitely helps.


V on 07/17/2012:
Yes that Glutamine is the bee's knees ;) I hope one day soon you will like planks just a tad bit, as far as the knees go, Tiger Balm them or get some "Ben Gay Zero Degrees" This stuff if amazing, you keep it in the freezer and man does it feel good when you roll it on <3. have a good one my friend, keep up the good work..Just remember you can modify the moves for the jumping portion if your knees are troubling you tomorrow..


grannyannie on 07/17/2012:
Where are you visiting? Hope your knees get stronger and give you less trouble. Also hope your stuffy nose doesn't turn into anything.


LeakingLife on 07/17/2012:
Sounds like a good day! Good to know your body is cooperating for the most part--good going!


sweetpea1977 on 07/17/2012:
Thats great news about the glutamine!

haha, your relationship with your mom sounds like the one I have with my dad. I find it much easier to just let him think he's right even though Im right! :)


nunnermack on 07/17/2012:
Super! Where are you going? I always end up paying the 'overweight' fee.


nunnermack on 07/17/2012:
