legcramps - Monday Jun 27, 2011

Weight: 164.0

Friday: toast with pb, coffee, water, chicken and pasta, cupcake, yogurt with walnuts, red pepper slices, potatoes, peas and sausage links. One beer for dessert ;)

I took Dog for a walk after work. 'A' was visiting my neighbour Friday evening, and accidentally backed into my car when he was leaving. Apparently he'd had a bad day and just wanted to share the misery ;) I was a little ticked as I try to keep my car well maintained and this is just something else i'll have to repair now. He broke the shield off of the back light, so i'm hoping it's not going to cost an arm and a leg to replace it. 'A' will be paying for it, whatever the cost is.

Saturday: toast with pb and eggs, water, banana muffin, can't remember what I had for lunch, a smattering of crackers with mozza cheese, a few potato chips, two hot dogs, cucumber salad, potato salad, cupcake for dessert. More beer, some really fruity smoothies with vodka, and a shot of... huh... um... well then. A shot of something.

I was dragging my butt in the morning, but I did manage to cut the grass and do some weeding in the backyard. The rest of the day was spent prepping for the BBQ, which was a lot of fun! Yes, Hungry Tiger was there and yes, she was definitely wanting to shine in my light. Hungry Tiger and her friends left at some point to go to another party, but she ended up coming back to our party later that night. She gloated to my friend that 'A' had been texting her all night, and mentioned how she really wanted to 'get some'. Then she announced that she sent me a very personal text message and that I should read it. She was asking me if I liked 'A', which I thought was the first mature thing she'd done in weeks. I told her to go for it if she liked him, because I was on the fence about him and my instincts were telling me he was bad news.

I mean, really. Everytime he's around, something bad happens. And I don't think it's okay to flirt with two girls who are friends with each other. Or supposed to be friends... whatever! Too much drama! So I told her she should go for it, then 'S' showed up and I had to listen to him talk - gosh, he sure loves the sound of his own voice. Then I wanted to leave and go home, but that took forever because Hungry Tiger wanted to drive home, and 'S' wanted to come over to my place (no. way. not. going. to. happen.) but finally I got home around 4am.

Sunday: coffee, bacon, egg, muffin, hashbrowns, water, homemade pizza on thins - pasta sauce, red pepper, cucumber, spinach, sausage.

I felt great yesterday, although I didn't have much energy for anything. I got some more weeding done, helped the hostess from the night before clean up, and took Dog for a walk.

This morning I was going to get up early, but that didn't happen. And then I was going to walk to work but that also didn't happen. So I will take Dog for a walk after work, get my car checked out, and have some friends over later to discuss a camping trip we're taking soon. Busy day! Thank goodness I have Thursday and Friday off!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

First off, I wouldn't call the "Hungry Tiger " a friend, in fact it is just the opposite of what a friend is..You should feel sorry for her because she is so pathetic that she waits around for scraps, your leftovers...As far as A goes, well he is far from a catch..Any guy tha is playing two "friends" against each other is BAD news...Maybe he has such a run of bad luck is karma's way of showing him..LOL.. Girl let the Tiger have some sloppy seconds and for you time to build a stronger, confident harem that will serve you and only you...JMO

hopingforhealth on 06/27/2011:
Lots of drama. It sounds like lame Hungry Tiger's nickname is earned, and I agree with V that A is lame if he's playing friends off of each other. Besides, if a guy hit my car, it would be hard for him to maintain his appeal. :)

I finally came down off the med high I was on yesterday; I opted out of taking anything before bed last night so I woke up this morning still feeling sick but with a clear head ;)

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta, dried mango, chicken and pasta. Boring. However... drum roll... no peanut butter OR bread! Woo!

I had to run uptown after work to get some seed packets because Mom was coming over to help me plant the garden. It took us close to two hours, but we finally got it done. We planted potatoes, two types of beans, beets, onion, carrots, swiss chard, cucumber, two types of squash, zuchinni and three types of peas. Holy moly that sounds like a lot. I only hope it comes up because it's been planted so late in the season. Anyways, i'm counting that as my exercise for yesterday since I am not feeling the best and decided to nix the running for now.

This morning I went for a 1.5 mile walk. Actually, it may have been a little less than that because we weren't being quick little bunnies today - I think both Walking Buddy and I were feeling tired and cranky =0!

Breakfast was toast with peanut butter and now i'm having some coffee and water.

Tonight I plan to cut the grass if it doesn't rain before then, and then I have a dinner date with a friend. If I can pull some weeds before then, all the better.

Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey when is the party?? You must give me updates about the "Hungry Tiger"

Umpqua on 06/25/2011:
Good deal on your garden. I seeded swiss chard, beets, carrots and a few other things and they've all come up well. I can't wait to harvest some chard!

geevee on 06/25/2011:
It's amazing to me how you're able to garden, walk, etc. = get things done, when you're sick! I'm totally imobilized!

There's nothing better than food straight from the garden. What a awonderful choice of veggies you've planted.

Good Morning!

(↑ this chipper attitude is brought to you by BENADRYL... because BENADRYL gives back)

Unfortunately, Benadryl was the only cold/allergy medicine I had in the cupboard at home, besides Buckleys. I just couldn't do the Buckleys. So I popped a Benadryl. My head is fuzzy, a full 12 hours later. I'm lucky I made it to my bed before zonking out. I'm also fairly sure that I drooled all over the pillows sometime during the night. OMGEEZIES!

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta leftovers, dried mango, yogurt with chopped walnuts, some kind of chicken/ham combo with baked potato and salad at the meeting. PB sandwich.

I got home after the meeting, took meds, tried to keep my eyes open long enough to watch a Make it or Break it episode, and crashed. Hard. I don't even remember tossing. Or turning. At all. This is what meds can do for you, my friends... and OH! this morning I wanted to break my cell phone and it's stupid Star Trek-like alarm sounds in HALF! It was extremely slow going getting ready for work and I ended up being late. I don't know how a person can be late to work when they can drive there within five minutes and have over an hour to get ready. Must be sick.

Does any part of this entry even make sense? I tried to read over what I already wrote down, but it's like I have Attention Deficit today and also? there are tiny white bunnies floating around in my head and they're far more interesting than anything I might write here...

Ok, I exaggerated on that last part about the white bunnies.

I'm scared to work; I have a sneaking suspicion i'll have to re-check everything tomorrow. I should have taken a sick day. Oh well!

I don't do well on antihistimines or decongestants at all. I usually resort to children's doesages every 2-3 hours.....as for ADD - well, we joke in the health/medical insurance industry (where I work) that it is a pre-requisite.....and I've been doing this work for 30 years so everything you wrote made perfect sense to me!

I think i'm starting to get sick; this morning I woke up feeling tired and cranky and with a sore throat again. Yuck!

Yesterday: coffee, water, crackers with sausage, chicken and pasta with onion, spinach and carrots, toast with pb.

I took Dog for a walk yesterday instead of trying to fix the treadmill as I had an evening meeting and wouldn't have had time for a running workout. The walk was nice and Dog was very happy to be outside, so it was worth the change of plan =) It was so humid that I was sweating in my light jacket and long pants.

I didn't get much sleep last night, due to being swept up in a Make it or Break it episode =0 and also because of a certain mosquito buzzing around in my bedroom. I eventually swatted it, which scared Dog, who I had to calm down afterwards. My life. Anyways, this morning there was no way I was getting up to run after only five hours of sleep. No way. And right now all I want to do is sleep and stock up on C vitamins and cold medicine. I have another meeting tonight that i'm not looking forward to, then tomorrow night a retirement supper to attend, and Friday is leg waxing with a friend. Blah. I hope I don't get any more sick than I already am or the rest of this week is going to suck.

The good news is that I have a lovely lunch of leftovers to look forward to. Yum!

hopingforhealth on 06/22/2011:
Yea, I started watching the series (Game of Thrones) and I was really enjoying it, so I started reading the books. They're addictive! I'm glad I wasn't spoiled for the first season, though I can't stop myself for the future. :)

boo for sore throats. I hope you can ward it off!

Hey! Got my 1.5 mile walk out of the way this morning and now on to the rest of the workday! (I'm trying to sound a lot more excited about that than I really am, LOL).

So yesterday I ate cheese and crackers for lunch, dried mango and a cupcake for snacks, and chili with perogies for dinner (from Mom). And then BAM, some bread went into the toaster. I gotta stop doing that!!! Still, the day was pretty good calorie-wise, so i'm not going to beat myself up (too much).

My throat was really hurting last night, so I popped a couple throat lozenges and one this morning. I seem to be feeling slightly better, so we'll see how the day goes.

No plans again for tonight - looks like it might rain today/tonight so I won't be getting into the garden or flowerbeds for a little while. Too bad; my plants are starting to look a little frayed at the edges. I need to weed and plant the garden. And vacuum (inside the house LOL). But I can't seem to find the energy. Okay, get it together legcramps, it's just a little slump. Probably brought on by too many late night parties. I'll get back there.

Today I will try to get the treadmill working again. If I manage to fix it, i'll do a one mile run. Also? I think this weekend i'll take it easy on the partying oh crap there's a team bbq on Saturday night. I'm expected to be there, so I will drink lots of water through the night and try my best to avoid the drama because the drama will definitely be showing up.

Small towns. Love it.

thank you for sharing the cramps improvement techniques the other day! I really appriciate it and I'm going to practice that. Usually my feet have cramps, my toes "curl" to all directions and I see the little birds singing and flying around my head...

Thanks for the comment last night! I read this and your last entry, and yea that girl"friend" is lame. When I graduated from college, I naively thought "oh, the working world. Everyone around me will be adults and act like it." Ha! I think some people never leave high school for some reason. Have fun anyway and I'll cross my fingers for no drama for you!

I was going to get up early on Saturday and do a three mile run, but when it came time to wake up, I was not having any of it! Oops. I guess I needed some sleep, and I think I know why since this morning I woke up with a sore throat and some coughing fits.

Instead of running, I helped out in the morning with setting up for a fundraiser that evening. It was actually a really good workout - hauling boxes and setting up tables and chairs. I did a few little errands during the rest of the day and managed to get my garden tilled finally, then had a birthday dinner to attend. I had toast with pb and two eggs for breakfast, but I can't honestly remember what I had for lunch. Maybe the same thing. For dinner I had mahi mahi with scampi sauce - it was so tasty! And a baked potato.

The fundraiser was just a very long night. Not many people showed up as there were so many other events happening. I hope we can at least break even - live and learn! After the fundraiser a group of girls enjoyed a few drinks and chatted into the early hours of the morning. It would have been fine had one of the girls not decided to start teasing me about 'A'. I think she is interested in him and was just wanting to be mean to me - also, she was texting him all night and seemed angry when he kept asking about me. After a while it started to bother me - I don't need the drama nor do I need to act like a schoolgirl, but I couldn't help feeling frustrated with her. I'm going to drop it and be the bigger person though. If she's so interested that she feels the need to berate me in front of my friends, she can have it! Right?

Breakfast on Sunday was an egg sandwich and some orange juice and hashbrowns. Lunch was a lot of carbs - rice, potato skins and pancakes! Dinner was cheese and crackers ;) I spent Sunday not doing much because I was so tired. And true to form, I did not want to get up this morning for my run. Now i've missed two runs and i'm hoping that won't affect my cardio too much, but I know it will.

Dog is headed for a hair cut today; other than that I don't really want to do anything. I think I will read a bit and head to bed early - 1.5 mile walk in the morning!

Have a great day!

Oh brother - school girl behavior by other woman, for sure. Your instincts are probably right - she's interested in him OR she just can't stand anyone else having the possibility of a relationship.....best to ignore. "A" probably thinks she's odd, too.

Your friend is a HUNGRY TIGER(they are worse than playa haters) These type of people hang on to you so they might bask in YOUR spotlight and shine for a minute becasue they can't do it on their own...Time to 86 both of them and rise above it, friends don't act like that...

I haven't weighed myself in a while, so i'm not sure what my weight is but it's probably around the weight I have posted; I doubt I lost anything lately since i've been having all the late night toast sessions ;)

So yesterday I got to sleep in, although I kinda didn't but whatever! I had a breakfast of rye toast with organic peanut butter (omg i luuurrve you pb) and two eggs. nom nom nom. Then I drank some water and thought about what I would do with my day off.

Ten minutes later and I was outside cutting grass and sweating up a storm! It's been so humid out lately (and still is) that it doesn't take much to start drooling sweat. Anyways, i'm glad I cut the grass when I did, because soon after that it started to rain again and it hasn't really let up since.

I did a few more putzy things around the house and then it was time for lunch. I nom nom'ed my breakfast so much that I just HAD to have the same thing for lunch ;)

Then I took a nap. Because I could.

When I woke up from my nap, I went out and got a few groceries, picked up some odds and ends, then headed back home to whip up a batch of cupcakes. I needed to do a test run for an upcoming ball team potluck; as I am not the best cook/baker in the kitchen. Really. I burn toast, i'm that good.

I finished that up while snacking on tostitos and guacamole, and once the icing was on the cupcakes I split them up into thirds and immediately delivered some to a friend. I brought the other third to work with me today. They are very chocolately - chocolate cupcakes with a cream cheese and chocolate chip filling and chocolate frosting. Wow. See why I got rid of most of them already?!! Sorry if i'm making anyone drool.

I munched on some chicken while watching episodes of So You Think You Can Dance and texting 'A'; I know I didn't get in all my food groups yesterday because I feel sort of draggy today. That's not usually the case when I eat all my vegetables!

'A' managed to find the nerve to ask me out on a date (**cue shyness, hiding my eyes behind my hair**) but I don't know when it's going to happen because i'm pretty busy until the middle of July! Summer is crazy, but I love it! Stampeder Guy was supposed to chat with me this week but that hasn't happened; I am not going to fret over it - his loss! Although he was a cutie ;)

Tonight I have a few errands to run; tomorrow is packed with things to do and a fundraiser dance to work; Sunday will be my day for house and yard work and of course, chatting with Dad for Father's Day! I sent him a card but our postal service is on strike so I have no idea if he got it yet. Apparently, this is the season for striking - we have two unions in the healthcare system striking, the teacher's union was on strike, our provincial crop insurance company was on strike, and now the postal service!

Anyways, wow, I can sure blab on and on. Hope everyone has a great weekend! I have a three mile run on the calendar for tomorrow! Hope I can get it done!

ohh, curiously I've never been into cupcakes. Those look so artificial to me, too colorful, too plastic-looking. TOASTS, now those are something I'd like :) and I do actually, every morning before tennis! Do you put anything (butter) on top? I normally eat it with a tomato, sliced on top, because it's juicy and it pretty much substitutes butter :)

I could not bake cupcakes and not have one. Good idea to give them away. A normal store bought cupcake I could resist but a homemade choc. wchoc chips would be a test of my willpower. So good for you. Love organic pb- especially Trader Joes!

I think I broke my treadmill...

Yesterday I had yogurt with walnuts, coffee, water, chicken, pasta with onion, red pepper and broccoli, carrots, fish with brown rice, onion, red pepper and broccoli, more effin toast. The broccoli is almost done! This is the beauty of buying bulk groceries - you eat and eat and eat and still, there's always some left :)

I tried to keep myself busy last night, but really all I wanted to do was sleep. Or be depressed. Fortunately, I didn't let myself go there but i'm sure the message I left for my Dad yesterday probably has him wondering what the heck is wrong with me. It did rain yesterday afternoon, and then in the evening as well. This morning it's really damp and humid again; I imagine there is more rain coming my way for today. Maybe the change of weather has my emotions all out of whack. Whatever it is that's making me feel like this, it can stop. Anytime now.

So this morning I tentatively tried out the treadmill for a two mile run. It started out a little noisy and clunky, but soon it was sounding fine so away I went. Then, with only five minutes remaining in my run, it totally conked out on me! Oh no! I killed it! It started clunking, and then just shut right off. I couldn't get it back on. It may have reached an early grave.

I was bummed about not finishing yet another run, so I gathered my courage and ran outside for the five minutes I had left. It was wet. And humid. And hard to breathe. But I got it done. I had to take a breather afterwards and I sat at the kitchen table trying to catch my breath. I might have to do this run again before I can think about increasing my time or distance. Or maybe not eat so much bread right before going to sleep. Yeah, maybe that.

I had to put on my compression socks today for work because my left leg is really bothering me. I think the ankle area is swollen. I'm glad i'll have tomorrow and Friday as rest days from running; maybe the rest will do my ankle some good. I'm still absolutely grateful I haven't had much shin pain lately!

I've taken the day off work tomorrow, so i'm hoping to get some major sleep and get some things done around the house, depending on the weather. Tonight is slo-pitch but if it rains I imagine it will be cancelled. I would be okay with that. Usually, that would suck, but today - i'm okay with it.

But i'm really not all that grumpy today, honest! I just need something to punch. And maybe a great big bear hug.

Yesterday I had toast, coffee, water, a beef burger, carrots, chicken and pasta with onion, red pepper and broccoli, more toast (obvs).

I was pretty tired after work, but somehow I managed to keep myself busy long enough to not fall asleep on the couch. Just making dinner took more than an hour when all was said and done. I was moving really slowly.

This morning I was up early and went for a 1.75 mile walk with Walking Buddy. It's really humid out there, which means that it's probably going to rain again today. I felt almost claustrophobic it was so humid! Wierd.

Also wierd? I dreamt about running last night. Serious. I dreamt that I didn't have my stopwatch but I thought I was running really well and I think I was in some kind of race. That's all I remember.

Nothing on the agenda for tonight; I kind of wish I was a little busier this week in order to not have the time to beat myself up about certain things that constantly go through my mind. It's causing me some stress, which in turn is making me feel like throwing up. This too, shall pass.

great job on the walk this AM... I know the feeling of stress making you feel a little like puking... Some things I do when I have a not so busy week and lots of down time... Go for another walk (if its not raining) rent a really cheesy romantic comedy, go to the library and find some healthy cook books to look thorugh... Nothing too exciting, but it does help to keep me occupied! Have a great day!!

sorry you are feeling a bit lousy tonight. like you said though, it shall pass. you are sounding busy to me - walking with friends even in the AM! nice!

Saturday morning when I woke up around 7am, I really didn't want to go for a run. I lay in bed, tossing and turning until deciding that if I didn't go now, I would probably dislike myself later. So, even though I didn't get out of the house until 7:20, I still went. Three miles later, and I was back and ready for a cool shower. I took Dog with me on the run, and I think she was ready for a four hour nap by the time we got home.

After I showered, I picked up some coffee and a banana muffin for breakfast, then spent the morning trying to sell stuff at Mom's garage sale. Mostly I just sat around, drinking tons of water and standing in the sun whenever possible.

After lunch, I decided to pull the mower out and cut the grass. It had really started to warm up outside, so by the time I was done, I was sweating profusely and drinking even more water. Even though I was pretty beat by the time I was done, I still managed to grab the clipper and work on trimming the trees and hedges in the yard - looks great! Obviously, I have a few (a dozen) more cuts and bruises on my body than I had before. I really don't know how I manage to hurt myself during manual labor, but I do it - every single time.

I helped pack up the garage sale stuff and we cleaned up the garage, then I had some quality time with the couch and an episode (or three) of Game of Thrones. Then it was time to get ready to head to the city to watch some racing! We got VIP tickets from a friend, and they treated us to a free steak dinner which was awesomely yummy! We also had our choice of seating and were able to get up close to the race track. It was so much fun putting bets on the chuckwagons and sitting around enjoying BEER and steaks. A friend's hubby also played the position of "wingman" for me and talked up some dude who was bartending; he ended up getting his phone number for me and we chatted for a few minutes. Stampeder Guy was pretty hot and I was so nervous to talk to him, so after a bit I avoided convo because I thought i'd start to stutter and turn into a bumbling mess 'cause that's how I roll. But I did text him later that night, and he replied on Sunday morning and we chatted again for a few minutes. He lives about four hours away, so it will be interesting to see if something comes of it. Regardless, it felt awesome to think that he could be interested! What a confidence boost! Just what I needed.

Later that night, we partied at a friend's place and I did some stupid things which I am not going to divulge. Let's just say that it COULD have been much worse... and I choose not to regret it. Moving on.

Sunday I did not do much, due to the events of the evening before.

This morning I was up and at 'em on the treadmill for a two mile run. Unfortunately, the treadmill started making funny noises with about 3 minutes left in my run, so I had to cut it short. I hope it was just overheated and it will work fine on Wednesday morning for me.

Back to work today! I don't have any plans tonight, so i'm hoping to get some laundry done and hang with Dog. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!
