legcramps - Wednesday Oct 24, 2012

Weight: 166.0

Another good one in the books!

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Done and done and done and done!

I also drank more water than usual... close to 3.5 litres.

Wednesday - stretching; pushup challenge; insanity; clean (general); pickup outside

I might have bigger dreams than reality can handle today. Town elections are today, as well as a hockey game and a bluegrass concert. I may not have time to put into the Wednesday chores. Sometimes things like great music or political mumbo-jumbo take priority over the daily chores to be done at home.

I would just like to note that I am ready for a work-break. Like, a week-long work-break. And since the heavens just might be in a generous mood, i'd also like to have an unlimited spending allowance. Wouldn't we all?!

Yesterday morning I woke up to snow on the ground. Throughout the day, it rained and slightly melted the snow. There's still a little left here and there, but the worrying thing right now is going to be how icy it gets with the rain and slushy conditions. Winter!

I am in a hungry mood today...

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

SNOW?? I wish...It's 78 degrees and the A/C is running and I just wish we were in the 50's and I could enjoy gumbo and a nice fire. Isn't it funny, those with snow don't want it and those without want it?? Kind of like straight hair and curly hair! Enjoy your day and maybe the genie will grant you your wishes!! Congrats on the clean day yesterday!

Good going on your consistency with the activities! Yes I could also use a nice long week away from work, it gets really stale doesn't it? LOL Have a great evening :)

Happy Tuesday!

I had a good day yesterday.

Monday - stretching; pushup challenge; walk; clean bathroom/kitchen/mudroom CHECK

The part where I was supposed to go for a walk didn't happen, but i'm counting what I did during the day at work and after work while helping a friend with her new business venture as my walk. But still, very good day! And now I have a clean bathroom, kitchen and mudroom. That's a great bonus.

I stayed up later than usual and had a hard time falling asleep. But goshdarnit, at least now all my farmville animals are fed and I don't have to worry about letting them all starve while i'm sleeping...

So it was a little hard to wake up this morning, but the two bright as hell lightbulbs I replaced in the bathroom yesterday did a real bang-up job showering light into the room. I woke up pretty quickly once I was in there ;)

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Today should be a little less busy, which is wonderful because by the time I get everything done, those damn farmville animals will need food again and i'm sure my crops will have withered into dust.

Farmville might be taking over my life.

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - tbd

PM - pudding

Dinner - squash, brown rice, chicken, steamed vegetables

Water - 2.5 litres

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

thenewMLE on 10/23/2012:
Have a good day and don't let your virtual life kill your real one!! haha - I get like that with my games. That is my relaxation in the evening but sometimes I stay up way too late because I just want to play one more!

nunnermack on 10/23/2012:
Luckily I haven't been sucked into Farmville yet but I know it can get addictive. I'm thinking that's where all my Facebook friends are these days because they haven't been very active posting on Facebook.

Enjoy your day!!

V on 10/23/2012:
Hahahahahaha! Well at least you are a good farmer that sacrifices sleep to make sure all the animals are tended to ;) I used to have a serious "Mafia Wars" addiction..I was totally obsessed with wacking people and recruiting mob members :( Anyhoo get to bed early tonight, I am taking my own advice as well..I have been staying up far too late on "school nights" Good job on your workouts, have a wonderful evening!

Monday? AGAIN? LOL.

I had a pretty laid-back weekend; yesterday I managed to get the dishes and laundry done, but spent the remainder of my time flipping between reading and watching movies. I finally watched paranormal activity 3 (I know, I know, the 4th one is out already) and some other wierd blair-witchy thing about aliens. Or something. I only watched 1/3 of it.

I'm going to give this healthy living thing one of the best weeks of my life. I've been feeling a little lazy and I think it's time to step up the program.

I am also going to try and get some other things done during the week. Things I usually leave for the weekend. I think this weekend will be busy, so i'd like to get as much out of the way as possible before then.

Monday - stretching; pushup challenge; walk; clean bathroom/kitchen/mudroom

Tuesday - stretching; pushup challenge; 30 day shred; clean living room

Wednesday - stretching; pushup challenge; insanity; clean (general); pickup outside

Thursday - stretching; walk; insanity; clean spare rooms; laundry

Friday - stretching; pushup challenge; yoga; clean (general)

I have a massage coming up on Friday which i'm really looking forward to; another great reason to go all out this week - my muscles will thank me i'm sure!

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - spaghetti and chicken

PM - pudding

Dinner - chicken, brown rice, brussel sprouts

Doing great on the water intake! At least 2.5 litres a day!

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

I love your plan for the week :) Sorry that the weekend didn't last nearly as long as ya wanted..

Good start to the weekend so far! I went to the hockey game last night, where my team WON in a very close match! And I got in some decent sleep overnight.

Today my plan is to putz around the house and get some yardwork done, then i'm heading to Grandma's to check out the new carpet she had installed yesterday. She's so excited about it, and i'm so happy to see her that way! It's the little things that really make us happy!!!

Lunch yesterday was soup and a ham sandwich at a local fundraising event. Dinner was leftover salmon and brown rice.

I don't know what my meals will be for today, but i'm guessing i'll get something tasty when i'm at Grandma's :)

Have a great day everyone!

nunnermack on 10/21/2012:
Have fun with your Grandma!! I used to spoile my grannie when she was around and I have such good memories of her. BUT....when it came to her birthday and I would go card shopping, the cards would say, "I remember all the cookies you used to bake..." I laughed because my grannie did NOT cook or bake or knit!! She loved shoe shopping!!!

Well, it's finally Friday!

Being the truly, awesomely stellar individual that I am, I SLEPT IN and was a whole hour late to work! HAPPY FRIDAY ALL!!!!


Obviously the priority for today is purchasing an alarm clock that will WORK and WAKE ME UP when it's supposed to.

Of course, i'll do that AFTER I work back the hour I lost this morning.

I decided to make some white pasta and some whole wheat pasta, so that I could have what I wanted (the whole wheat), and my friends could choose what they wanted to have. It was really quite a lovely meal; I was happy with how it turned out. And not quite so happy with the dishes that I left for myself to do today.

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - TBD

PM Snack - pudding

Dinner - TBD (likely leftovers; time to clean out the fridge!)

Water - 2.5 litres

Make it a HEALTHY WEEKEND everyone!

Is it Friday yet?

... how 'bout now?


I didn't really get as much done as I wanted to yesterday, but it was still a pretty good day. I was home for a few minutes before heading out to a friend's, and managed to get some cleaning done around the house.

Dinner wasn't healthy; I was being treated by a friend and I always have such a hard time saying no or asking for healthier alternatives. We had ribs, chicken wings, deep fried zuchinni, ceasar salad, fries, and I had a slice of garlic toast as well.

Today will be better, because it's Friday.


No it's not. Geez.

Tonight i'm hosting a dinner with two friends and we're watching some Ghost Whisperer. I'm making crockpot chicken with veggie sauce, pasta (white pasta because my friends hate whole wheat pasta) with some grated mozzarella, and roasted brussell sprouts. Things are much more healthy when i'm in control of the food preparation!

Umpqua on 10/18/2012:
That dinner with your friend sounds SO good, but so does your healthy dinner tonight. Enjoy your time with your friends!

LifeInATeaCup on 10/18/2012:
Ahaha :') At least friday is only a day away! And it should go fast with your friends, I hope you have a great night!! :)

IndependentEm93 on 10/18/2012:
C'mon friday! =)

thenewMLE on 10/18/2012:
IT's Friday for me!!! I'm not working tomorrow! Your dinner sounds great and I have been using Barilla PLUS which is a multi grain pasta and you can't tell that it is wheat. It doesn't have a very brown color and the texture is great. It is kind of a darker golden color but my hubby (who does not like wheat products) thinks this is wonderful! We used the angel hair for the Puttenesca Sauce Monday and for the chicken tetrazini last night. Also we use a veggie pasta which is the multi colors and it is duram semolina pasta which is also healthy. I put that in my Pasta salad last week and the girls didn't even realize it wasn't white pasta! Hope Friday hurries up and get here for you!! Have fun tonight!

V on 10/18/2012:
Both dinners sounds good to me.. I made wheat pasta for friends who claim that they could tell the difference in taste, flavor..I snuck in that Barrila Plus and they didn't even know the difference..Hahaha Well good news is one more sleep til FRIDAY :)

I was busy yesterday and didn't get my scheduled workouts in. Instead I spent over an hour getting new tires put on the car, and then something like three hours helping a friend set up her computer. There went my evening LOL!

I had secretly hoped to wake up early this morning and get an insanity workout in, but my sleep patterns this week have been hogwash and I barely opened my eyes to press snooze on my alarm when it went off at 6 a.m.

And my eyes were still tiny little slits after my usual Wake Up Shower.

In leiu of not getting enough sleep, I treated myself to a store-bought mocha this morning before work. In fact, it made me late to work because I went through the drive-thru instead of going inside. It's funny how little I care about being late to work today. It's probably because i'm not entirely awake yet.

Later i'll be trying to squeeze about twenty to-do's into the space of two hours so that I can go to a friend's for dinner and Survivor tonight. One of those twenty things being working on a blog about my travels this summer and sending it away to be printed. So excited!

Breakfast - mocha

Lunch - cafeteria tbd

PM Snack - pudding

Dinner - salmon and brown rice leftovers (skipped dinner yesterday so I still have these in the fridge)

Not enough sleep again last night; the beginnings of a headache is threatening me this morning.

I did well yesterday, drinking over 2.5 litres of water, doing my stretches, completing another day of the 100 pushup challenge. My eating was good as well - pudding cups, a ham and cheese croissant for lunch, and salmon with brown rice and beans for dinner.

Today i'm getting new tires put on my car after work, then later tonight i'm helping a friend set up a laptop for her business.

Somewhere in there I want to fit in a workout and some other quick errands. Should be busy!

good job with the water as well as the pushup challenge! Yeah I have to remind myself tonight not to get sucked in with the late night movies..It's crucial that I get enough rest for purgatory/work tomorrow. Hope you have a good evening :)

thenewMLE on 10/17/2012:
I often wonder if I had 2 extra hours in the day, would I still be so stressed for time? I think I would because then I would just schedule more stuff to do and be at the end of the rope again! It's just a sign of productivity, but as my Mom always says, "you need to slow down and smell the roses!" Have a great day and get some sleep too!!!

When I last updated here, I was in a pretty rotten mood. However, the rest of the weekend was stellar and i'm still riding a bit of a high from it, so that's cool :)

A friend and I drove into the city on Saturday and spent the day wandering around stores. By the time we got back to town, I was ready for some quality sleep - and I got it. A nice, full night of rest helped me to regroup and lose a little of the frustration I was hanging onto since Thursday. On Sunday, friends set me up on a golf outing where I had a fabulous time with a guy I really would like to see again. So handsome. I only hope he had as good a time as I did!

I rode that high for the rest of the night, and was unable to sleep because of it ;)

I felt some slight irritation this morning at work, residue from Friday's awful day, but i'm just not going to let it get me down. There isn't much that can break my good attitude today and I want it to last as long as possible LOL. So I will be avoiding the wonderslugs as much as I can so that I can go home today still feeling good.

I feel like i'm moving forward again with my life, finally over that last big hurdle that was holding me back. I owe it all to the people around me who will do most anything to see a happy girl again. I might be celebrating early, but I needed a little laughter and it doesn't even matter if nothing comes from it. This was the best weekend i've had in a very long time. I am so, so grateful for it.

Breakfast - mocha, pudding cup

Lunch - cafeteria tbd

PM Snack - pudding cup

Dinner - chicken and brown rice, veggies

Round 3 of the pushup challenge is on the to-do list today!

thenewMLE on 10/15/2012:
I am SO glad that you had such a lovely weekend!! Keep riding that high and don't let others get you down. I like to think that I can be as happy as I want and no one can change my attitude. Oh, don't get me wrong, some people aren't happy until they have brought you down with them. But I feel like that is their problem and I try to stay positive anyway. I hope you have a great week!!

V on 10/15/2012:
Awww I am so happy to hear that you had a stellar golf outing :) Listen don't let the wonderslugs get to you..I amuse myself with thoughts of bodily harm to all of those at work, I smile all day from the warm and fuzzy thoughts...hahahaha. Hope you first day back is quick and painless <3

It really sucks when you have an entry all written up and then your computer freezes and you lose everything...

What I was going to say was that I had a really crappy day yesterday at work, which rolled over into the night. I missed an opportunity to be introduced to someone I was interested in being introduced to, simply because of my bad attitude. I very much dislike wonderslugs. And I was on the brink of saying something that I would most certainly regret. I don't like upsetting people and I try to avoid confrontation because I really do think it's like the plague. And most of the time it's unecessary and ignorant. But I am so close to that wire. And that makes me sad :(

Good thing I have friends who will take me into the city today and GOLFING tomorrow!

If that doesn't improve my mood, perhaps some advil and sleep will do it.

I kinda dread going back to work on Monday.
