legcramps - Wednesday Feb 16, 2011

Weight: 166.5

Okay, I had a whole paragraph written out and then I x'd out of the internet and lost it all.

What I wanted to say was that I didn't have a great day yesterday. I am one of three people working in this area of the organization that did not receive a pay increase this year. I haven't received a pay increase since 2006. It would be fine if it had anything to do with budget cuts, but some people are getting a 37% increase. That's utterly disgusting and ridiculous. I can't even look forward to a cost of living increase. Please compare for me:  0% increase. 37% increase.

I'm disgusted with my employers, disgusted with the organization I work for, disgusted with the provincial government, and disgusted with the contracted company who performed the market rate analysis on behalf of the organization. What freakin' market did you analyze???

I'm also disgusted that I can do the work of two people for eight weeks straight and it can mean absolutely nothing at all, and yet my co-worker who walks around from office to office all day long chatting away can make approximately $25,000 per year more than I make. Hell, there are people in the same position as me that make over $8,000 per year more!

What is wrong with this picture?

I just have absolutely nothing to say.

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

liza36 on 02/16/2011:
There is definitely something wrong with that picture. I was talking to a friend today, who was mentioning that our mutual friend, who we both used to work with several years ago, did not get a promotion this year because she "lost her sparkle". What? Her supervisor actually said that. And someone else didn't get a promotion or raise because she "never had sparkle". Now, what market did they analyze??

moogy on 02/16/2011:
I am with you legramps, unfair, unjust and just plain stinks. After all you have done, it makes me feel like throwing in the towel for you. But I guess if you could have done that you would have thrown it into someones face before leaving for the day.!!! Life insn't fair and hard work doesn't get the acknowledgment it deserves. Can you speak to someone? Present a written argument for a pay rise? I don't know, but I am fuming along with you, if that helps at all!!!!

getmebackto150 on 02/16/2011:
ugghhh... That is just horrible... I'm sure you have gone this root already but maybe you could talk to your supervisor? ugghhh I'm truly sorry and I hope that your day gets better!

chidogs on 02/16/2011:
I so feel for you! Before I retired, our company stopped giving increases at all. What you got was a goal inspired bonus, only if you met the goat set for you. Of course, if you met it, the next year they increased it....a lot. In other words, they made getting the bonus nearly impossible after a year or two. I know it is tough, because who can you go to? And, you don't want to jeopardize the job by complaining since most of us need the work. Hang on. Hugs.

V on 02/16/2011:
Time to speak up girl! Be brave and brazen, but still respectful...Love you :)

A great start to the day:  Someone broke the inside door knob to the ladies' washroom, and we ran out of requisitions to get maintenance to fix it.  So I put a temporary sign up on the door until the Maintenance Supervisor can take a look at it:

"Out of order; door knob broken. If you wish to use, please take emergency cell phone along"


Anyways.  It's going to be a busy day today at work, but not yet so that's why i'm updating now instead of later.  Two meetings, presentations going on all day long, food orders, blah de-blah blah.

LMAO - the Maintenance Supervisor just came into my office and said "we're good to go, and I mean literally". Oh, bust a GUT!

My treadmill came yesterday, but I haven't taken any pics of it yet.  It's very narrow, and is interesting to listen to when you get it going.  I did a short try-out on it yesterday.  It's kind of loud, so I blared the music over the noise of the treadmill.  I don't know that i'll be able to run on it, which is what I wanted it for in the first place, but that's okay.

Tonight is boot camp and maybe i'll see if some friends want to watch Charmed tonight as well.  Tomorrow is the first episode of Survivor!  Can't wait!

Have a great day!!! Glad your treadmill came in...

V on 02/15/2011:
Yayyy for the treadmill! Have fun at boot camp!

moogy on 02/15/2011:
Funny lady and funny maintenance man!!! I hope that the treadmill allows you do get a good workout and have a good workout at boot camp - you usually do!!

I wish the weekend wasn't over already :(

Friday I did some Wii Dancing and continued to clean the house. Saturday was more cleaning and then setting up for the party. I had been waiting for the treadmill I purchased, but they didn't call me until Sunday evening and I was doing other things. Hopefully today they will bring it after work, otherwise they'll be gone on holidays and I won't get it for another two weeks!

The party on Saturday night was great fun. It ended up that there were only two extra people that showed up that no one had invited. But they brought a grape salad, so I was instantly okay with them being there :) We had alioli with huge prawns and a spicy sauce, ribs smothered in BBQ sauce, a layered baked taco (sort of like lasagna, o.m.g. so good), baked veggies in cheese sauce, hashbrown casserole, and a yummy grape salad with pecans and brown sugar. Dessert was some chocolate fudge and a chocolate cookie cake, which we didn't even take a slice of since everyone had filled up on everything else!

We played a couple of games of guesstures, cuponk, and Wii Dance. It was hilarious and too much fun and I ended up staying up WAY too late and paying for it on Sunday. Thank goodness I only do things like this once or twice a year! Now I will have to concentrate on cleaning the house again for the next couple of days :)

I was going to run on Saturday morning, but was too busy and decided not to; Sunday was definitely a no-go; today is looking that way too, but if I do get the treadmill I might at least try it out and see what it can do. I also had a good talk with another friend that runs quite a bit and told him about my problems with my shins. He (well, mostly his gf) said more than likely it's my shoes. I guess I will have to bite the bullet and buy new ones.

My oatmeal tastes pretty blah; I should have brought some grape salad for breakfast ;)

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 02/14/2011:
Oh, what fun! Can I come to your next party???? Also, I totally agree with you about B.C instructor - they need to vary the workouts - especially when they are that intent. Most of the focus of the classes I've been to lately has been Abs....which is fine with me 'cause mine need it A LOT and everything else benefits when the abs are in shape! About your shins - that is how I can always tell I need new shoes! Start looking for SALES!

getmebackto150 on 02/14/2011:
Your party sounds SUPER fun!!! I also agree that shin splints are usually the fault of the shoes... I have suffered from these awful things many times and more often than not, changing shoes does help immeasurably... Have a good one!

tangalyn on 02/14/2011:
wow some yummy food at ur party :D hope today is a great one for u!!

Umpqua on 02/14/2011:
Your party sounds wonderful, glad you enjoyed it!

sweetpea1977 on 02/14/2011:
Your party sounds great. Im so glad you took the night off from dieting to enjoy some naughty foods and fun games for your birthday celebrations!

Hope you get your treadmill today!

V on 02/14/2011:
Glad that you had a good time this weekend! i just got up from my second nap and I have to get motivated here soon to workout :) Happy V Day ;)

moogy on 02/14/2011:
The party sounds like it was great fun and that everyone had a good feed and a good laugh. Perfect. I hope that you have a good week. I hope that treadmill arrives soon. So frustrating to have purchased something and then have to wait for delivery!!!

legcramps - Friday Feb 11, 2011

Weight: 166.5

Let's recap yesterday in point form because i'm feeling a little sick today and that is making it hard to think :

- In the morning, I left the house for work still in my pajamas. That was embarassing, and I didn't tell anyone about it until I posted it on facebook of all places for all to see. Oh well. People need to know that i'm not perfect, right?

  - Work was good, I comforted myself from the morning's style disaster with a hot mocha, drank lotsa water and tea in the afternoon and had another yummy slice of Oatmeal Quick Bread with peanut butter. Still have two slices left!


 - I bought an old treadmill off a coworker and hopefully they'll be moving it into my living room tonight!!! I can't wait to try it out! It's very old  like me; i'll take some pics when I get a chance.

- I got some groceries after work, but forgot the one thing I actually went to the store for - Almond Milk! That meant no oatmeal for me this morning. I can't handle it with water, it has to have milk in it. I made myself a double-toasted bagel instead.

- I cleaned the kitchen and in the process smashed a shot glass to smitherines on my ceramic tile floor.

Thankfully it was empty

- I went to boot camp and almost threw up. I spent most of the hour and a half staring at the girls' bathroom, stressing about whether to make a dash for the door. I became so incredibly angry with the instructor that there was pure rage boiling inside me. If he decides to make one more class all about legs, I will personally egg his car all by myself.

- After boot camp, I sat on the couch and froze my butt because I was too tired to draw myself a bath to warm up (well, and to clean the viel of cold sweat forming on my body). About an hour later I decided I was recovered enough to crawl to the bathroom and get it done.

- I took advil as soon as I woke up this morning, so while everyone else is complaining about last night's devilish boot camp class, for right now I feel no muscle pain. But my stomach is bugging me yet again.

- I work all day today, then tonight I have to keep cleaning the house. I thought i'd only have to host about a 1/2 dozen close friends for my party on Saturday, but it looks like that number is getting bigger. For some reason, there are people who think they're invited that I haven't actually invited. Hmmn. I smell surprise party. And i'm not sure I like surprises in my own house.

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 02/11/2011:
Ugghhh... I am so sorry you are not feeling well:( Kudos to you for going to boot camp though!!! Try to feel better!!!!

KathyBlue on 02/11/2011:
wow, that bread looks so delicious... Sorry about your bad day... pure rage sounds harsh... Get better, girlie!

Umpqua on 02/11/2011:
Sorry you're not feeling well, I hope you're better for the party. I love your illustrations today ;)

geevee on 02/11/2011:
Your bread looks scrumptious! That's my kind!

shams on 02/11/2011:
old treadmill might work for you much better than a old one. have a nice day.

sweetpea1977 on 02/11/2011:
aww, sorry to hear you are still sick. I hope you feel better soon!!

moogy on 02/11/2011:
OK, so lets pretend that today didn't really happen. It was one of those days that life seems to throw at us now and again just to see if we are paying attention. I hope that tomorrow and the weekend is a good one. Remember - remove PJ's before leaving house!!!! LOL

hopingforhealth on 02/11/2011:
Aghhh rotten day! So sorry to hear it. The pajamas thing is kind of funny, I have to admit. At least you were anxious to get to work!

Yea, it's nice that he springs for lunch sometimes! He can be kind of a jerk on occasion, and I think it's his way of trying to buy our affection, ha ha. Works for me.

V on 02/11/2011:
LOL!!! That is awesome!!!! I love it...I have never done that one before, HOWEVER I fell asleep/passed out on my porch naked after a night of celebrating my birthday, I had a trail of clothes going up the stairs and then there's me at the top wearing only Jimmy Choo's LOL Love ya!

That old treadmill sounds nice. My treadmill is old, too but still works just like new. :-)

Well kids, it's around -26 celsius here this morning. Tomorrow they're forecasting 0 degrees celsius. See the huge change? This is what we've been dealing with all winter. Grr.


I had a lovely time at Grandma's last night. In fact, I had such a relaxing time that I stayed almost until my usual bedtime! Grandma is hilarious and comes out with the best sayings EVER. It was a blast just being there. I wish I could remember one of her sayings from yesterday to give you an example but I can only remember her calling someone a shmuck and commenting on the food and how her weight has shifted to different parts of her body. Oy.

I didn't have time for much else yesterday, but I did pick up the mail and received a wonderful birthday card from my Dad. I got some chocolates from Mom, and a great Tibetan song bowl from my brother and his wife.


Mom, Grandma and I spent a good amount of time trying to make music with it :)

Boot camp is on the chopping block tonight. My plan is to vaccuum and clean the kitchen before I go to class, then start a to-do list for things i'll need for my party on Saturday night. I need to figure out what to make for the dinner; i'm thinking of getting a frozen pizza - roasted chicken rising crust maybe. One friend is bringing alioli (shrimp pasta) and another sweet and sour ribs and veggies. Should be a regular feast!

Maria7 on 02/10/2011:
Sounds like you had a nice time with your Grandma. :-) Also sounds like it is very cold where you are. Happy birthday to you! :-)

Umpqua on 02/10/2011:
Haha, your grandma sounds like a lot of fun. Can't wait to hear about your party! Oh and hubby and I have all kinds of plans to add jalapenos and sundried tomatoes and other combos to that bread next time around. I can't believe how easy it was to make.

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2011:
Your grandma sounds awesome!!

What great birthday gifts you received too. I especially like the Tibetan song bowl!!

Your party feast sounds tasty!! :)

moogy on 02/10/2011:
Love your grandma, it is no wonder you love spending time with her, she sounds like a hoot!! Saturday night's party sounds like it will be a treat and I am extra impressed with the idea of you vacuuming and cleaning the kitchen before you even go to boot camp. I think you are in the SSSS (Secret Special Service Section) of DD's, I know V is and Kathy, I am pretty sure biscottibody is a member as well. Exercise fiends all of you. LOL

hopingforhealth on 02/10/2011:
That bowl sounds totally fun. I'm glad you had a nice time with the fam and got some great b-day gifts (happy belated by the way). Have a wonderful night!

Last night was a much better sleep; I used my heating pad still but only woke up a few times during the night and the stomach cramps weren't nearly as bad. Strange. We'll see how tonight goes as I won't be exercising until tomorrow because i'm going for dinner to my grandma's tonight.

I baked myself some super-cool oatmeal quick bread yesterday.


I already shared it with my fellow DD fb'ers, but I thought it was so good that I should share it here as well. I used almond milk instead of regular, and didn't grind my oatmeal. I don't have a grinder, but I rather liked the outcome of the grainier bread. I had two slices with pb and it filled me right up. I'm excited and looking forward to having a slice for my afternoon snack!

My friend bought me a Mini Keurig last week for looking after her dog for two weeks, so i've been trying it out almost every day ever since :) But, woah, I need to find some less bold flavors. I've taken to having two full cups of water to each container of ground coffee. Strong stuff, but I love using the machine - it's so tiny and cute!


I think I will buy a single cup filter so that I can still make my regular coffee with this machine instead of having two coffee machines in the house.

Well, that's my excitement for the day. Off to work so that the day will pass by more quickly!

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 02/09/2011:
glad to hear you are feeling better... that bread sounds YUMMY! I may have to try it... Have a great day!

Umpqua on 02/09/2011:
I'm making that bread for dinner tonight (as a side, not as dinner ;), thanks again!

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
Thanks for posting the bread recipe link again. For some reason it didnt occur to me to add it to my allrecipes recipe box until you posted it here. lol Thanks for your review on it. If I make it, I will know that I wont need to grind the oats to make the bread. Im all for that!

That Keurig is so cute. When my coffee maker dies, I may get myself something similar, as Im the only one who drinks coffee in this house.

Have a good day!

moogy on 02/09/2011:
I know what you mean about balance and harmony. It would be lovely if life was so tricky. It seems that it needs to be that way so that we learn and grow and I think that occasionally, if the stars are aligned we get a perfect day. I can remember three of them, absolutely perfect!!! You know, I think I would feel more harmonious if it weren't for other people, it's people that upset my balance!! LOL Dinner at your grandmother's is special, I hope you enjoy yourself and her!!:)

V on 02/10/2011:
I am not sure how i missed some posts from last night?? But what a fabulous gift your friend gave you! Nothing says lovin like a hot cup of fresh brewed coffee! Love Ya! Happy Birthday!!! I know I am celebrating early ;)

It's going to take more than a walk in the park to get this girl moving again.

I don't think I had the stomach flu last week. Yesterday after work I had to pick up some snack food so that i'd have something to eat before going to the gym. I picked up bagels and oatmeal. The whole time I was shopping, my stomach was feeling really yucky. I assumed it was because I was hungry so when I got home I ate one of the bagels. I didn't feel better. I struggled the whole evening trying to get myself to the gym, but it just wasn't meant to be.

Much earlier than usual, I headed to bed. It took me a while to fall asleep, and then I was woken with deep stomach pain throughout the rest of the night. I hit the bathroom several times, and used my heating pad incessently, all to no avail.

I noticed this morning that i'm spotting. My last depo shot was in December, so i'm good until March. I don't know why i'm feeling so sick, but it's really getting frutrating and getting in the way of my exercise. I have boot camp tonight but i'm so dead-tired from lack of sleep that I don't know if i'll make it through the workday. And even if I do, what if I vomit during class? That's gotta be my worst fear today - what if I manage to get my butt to class but then vomit all over everything because I was too sick to handle it?

Oatmeal this morning for breakfast. I sit at my desk, pushing around my bloated stomach and kneading the stress in my neck, trying not to feel like that oatmeal was the last thing to enter my mouth and might be the first to leave it.

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

omg, sounds serious! If you don't get better you have to visit the doctor!!!! xoxo

I'm voting for the doctor too. Stomach flu doesn't last that long. Take care of yourself.

legcramps - Monday Feb 07, 2011

Weight: 166.5

I didn't have the best weekend, food-wise.

Because I was sick last week, I was wary about running on the weekend.  I ended up not running, but I had to struggle with the urge to run all weekend.  My friend was around for most of Saturday, picking the ice off the roof so I kind of had to stick around for that.  He got most of it done, so i'm glad about that.

On Friday, I made pizza (roasted chicken and peppers) and had two slices.  I ate another slice in the morning on Saturday for breakfast :P and then again for lunch.  On Saturday night, I made slow-cooked ribs with honey-garlic sauce, potatoes, and green salad.  I haven't eaten this well in months ;) I don't know how I managed to afford it all but at least some of it I got at discounted prices - i'm probably out of grocery money for the next two weeks.

So I overdid it a bit, my portions were definitely not normal and I felt tired all weekend because of the amount of food I was taking in and because I was still feeling sick.

On Sunday, I went for a walk with a friend and our dogs through the hard-packed snow in the park.  It was a difficult 1/2 hour and my calves were burning by the time we were finished, but it felt great to be doing something again.  I hadn't had any real exercise since Tuesday of last week.  I'm thinking I should get my butt to the gym tonight and try to get a run in, or at least a walk.  I guess we'll see what happens later.

My birthday is coming up this week, so i've had some phone calls inquiring about what I want to do.  I'd rather not be reminded that i'm turning 34 this year :(

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

chidogs on 02/07/2011:
34? You are a youngster! :) Enjoy these years! Your food sounds really good, and not bad at all. Your body was probably craving something for energy after being sick! Take care.

V on 02/07/2011:
Party Time!!! :) So what day is it?? I am sure you will find loads of fun trouble to get into, and LOL @ your comment about the host, yes it was probably for the best that the hosts did pass out!

Umpqua on 02/07/2011:
The foods sound wonderful, I'm sure you needed some fuel after being sick. I bet you'll have a wonderful birthday celebration ;)

selina on 02/07/2011:
Happy Birthday! Your foods over the weekend sound wonderful - it's ok to overdo it once in a while! I hope you enjoyed it fully!

sweetpea1977 on 02/07/2011:
I agree with Umpqua...sounded like you needed some major fuel after being so sick. Now that you are feeling better, you can get back on track.

Dont think of birthdays as getting another year older. Think of them as a celebration of life with everyone who loves you. They dont care how old you are. They care that you are a part of their lives and want to celebrate your existence with you! :)

moogy on 02/07/2011:
I am glad you are feeling better and that you were able to get out of the house for some exercise. Those ribs sound wonderful, no wonder you ate a little too much. You are younger than my daughter who is 36, my son is 33, so you fit nicely in the middle. Here is a link for the curly wurly's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curly_Wurly

It sounds like you got some great exercise, and I agree with everyone who thinks you probably needed some fuel.

Oh boyzers.

I've been sick for the past couple of days, caught some kind of stomach flu and i've been paying dearly for it ever since. Today I am feeling slightly better, but not really if I were to be totally honest. I'm at work anyways. Maybe i'll feel better if I can make others sick.

So I missed boot camp last night, boo. That makes me sad.

Friend came over and started taking the ice off my roof, wow it's going well so far. He thinks after today he should be finished! The neighbour even borrowed me his roof rake so that we could get the snow off as well as the ice. Good things definitely come in small packages.

Today i'm just trying to struggle through the workday, then struggle through after work with friend who might still be working on the roof, then might have to drink a few whiskeys :) but finally after that I will read some and go to bed.

I don't even know what's on the menu for lunch. I've been drinking gingerale all morning and I just got a blueberry bran muffin into my stomach. My tummy is protesting.

You poor thing. Nothing is worse than a stomach bug like that. Take care of yourself, pamper yourself. You need to with this. Hope it is over soon.

moogy on 02/04/2011:
I am sorry you have been so sick. I can tell you are living on the edge of hanging on due to the mention of a few whiskeys!!!! Hope it passes soon and you can get back to your normal days of torture and sweating!!!LOL Good news on the roof though:)

Maria7 on 02/04/2011:
Wow, I can't imagine getting snow and ice off a roof! You are brave! Be careful. Hope you are feeling better when you get this comment. :-)

Oh boy, it's gonna be a long day.

Of course I didn't realize until I got in to work, but gawd I don't feel good. I tried to say hello to someone as I was walking down the hall and all that came out was a croak. My throat feels full, my nose is stuffed, and my eyes just don't want to stay open!

Aside from the fact that I obviously have a head cold, my stomach is grumbling away at me. I forgot my breakfast! As soon as I noticed there was no container of oatmeal sitting on my desk, I became about as ravenous as a bear. At the moment, I am swallowing back saliva and waiting for the cafeteria to open in another hour so that I can have something to eat. And I betcha it will be filled with carbs.

I do want to say, however, through all of this today i'm feeling in a great mood. I'm not sure why, but i'll take it whenever I can get it. Good moods, that is. Get your minds out of the gutters!

Boot camp last night was alright, I pushed it a bit more than usual and wanted to throw up about halfway through. That might have been because I couldn't breathe properly though. I'm noticing that my thighs are getting bigger. Bigger as in, muscleier, more muscley, freakin godzilla huge. It's no wonder, with all the legwork he makes us do. I'm gonna let it go for now, because he isn't around in March so i'll have that month to take a break from boot camp and maybe turn up the running volume and that might make a difference in these leggers of mine. I'd like to have legs that are directly proportionate to the rest of my body ;)

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 11.5 lbs to go!

Wow, what a rough start to your morning, but Im so glad that it didnt ruin your good mood! Hopefully, the cafeteria will have some healthy choices for you to choose from.

So, it sounds like you have healthy thunder thighs. At least they aren't unhealthy cottage cheese thunder thighs. :) Anyway, Im sure running will help stretch those muscles back out and give you a more lean look.

Feel better soon!

Hope you feel better. Muscle, no matter where it is, is a good thing. But I totally get that you don't want to be walking around with "godzilla huge" legs! Glad you're not letting it bother you.

Fiddlesticks, I just ate the last piece of cake. Otherwise swopping weather would have been great. Look after yourself, sounds like something yucky is brewing in there. Have the best day you can, work, sickness, whatever life throws at you.:)
