Where are Youuuu?

So, I had starting writing this blog post in my head when I was driving to work this morning, then I sat down at my desk, wrote an email, and forgot what I was going to write about here.  Typical.  Uh, I’ll try to wing it.

Well, it’s Wednesday, so there’s that and that’s pretty awesome.  I got a nice workout in yesterday, 15 minute run on the treadmill to warm-up followed by a weight workout of back, biceps, and legs.  Half way through, some dude felt the need to comment, “That’s some back work out you’re doing.”  Hmm not really, I though, but what I said was, “Well, it’s back, biceps, and legs day.”  Then I walked away.  Why do people feel the need to comment on EVERYTHING.  I know I don’t give off the “hey talk to me” vibe, especially in the gym.  Dani confirmed this for me.  Leave me alone folks, I don’t like people.

While I was in the mood to only eat potato chips and beer for dinner, I figured that wasn’t the best or healthiest idea.  I had another two pieces of chicken sitting in the fridge waiting for me to cook them, so I quickly threw them on the stove.  They had marinated in my fav Caribbean Jerk marinade before stored in the freezer.  To go with my chicken I prepared half a zucchini and half a yellow squash seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper and some Alexa sweet potato fries.  I also drank two Landshark’s.  Then I had potato chips and another Landshark for desert.  I really wanted potato chips last night.

Heads up if any men read this, I’m about to talk about lady stuff, probably better to peace out now.  Ok, you’ve been warned.

So, my period decided to take a little vacation this month, I hope it had fun wherever it went, and not show up.  I’m not pregnant (made sure of that), so what gives?  I called my doctor this morning to inquire with her, because I’m supposed to start my next pack of pills today which would mean there’s no chance of it showing up.  She told me that it’s normal to miss one, and to just proceed as usual.  Uhh, if it’s so normal, how come it never happened before?  So, yeah, that’s what’s going on there.  I don’t know, whatever, as long as I’m not knocked up.  That would be unfortunate.

Anywho, happy Wednesday.  Have a good one.


Weight Routine

So  a few of you were impressed by my weight lifting skills, haha, I really have no idea if what I lift is a lot or not but I figured I’d go into more detail.  I started lifting religiously once a week, about a month ago, maybe a little longer, but I’ve always built muscle pretty easily.  I credit starting gymnastics at the ripe old age of 4 years old, and developing them young.

  • 15 lb dumbbells for single arm bicep curls
  • 30 lb bar for bicep curls
  • 30 lb bar for skull crushers
  • 30 lb bar for tricep bench press
  • 15 lb dumbbells for inclined chest press
  • 60 lbs on the lat pull down machine

I typically do 3 sets of 12-14 of each exercise.  When I do squats and lunges I tend to just hold a 10-12 lb medicine ball instead of any free weights or bar.  I like lifting the medicine ball up and above my head when I come up from a squat or lunge to work my shoulders, because I definitely neglect them in my weight circuit.  I like lifting weights, feeling stronger, even if I don’t look any more toned.  What are your guys weight routines?

Last night I was back on the treadmill for an easy 2 miles (my legs were sore from both spin and squats) followed by a mile on the elliptical, and some abs and regular squats.  The entire time I was working out, all I could think about was an iced cold beer, chicken tenders, and french fries.  I knew I had chicken at home, and after a quick stop at the store on the way home from the gym I had some frozen Alexia Sweet Potato Fries, and a six-pack of Shock Top.

For a second I thought about taking some of the fries off my plate just for the picture, but then I remembered that you all come here because I eat a shit ton, drink a lot, and don’t give a crap :).

It should be noted that I went back for the remaining three pieces of chicken.

The chicken tenders were made with Italian Style Breadcrumbs, to which I added Cayenne Pepper, and Mrs. Dash seasoning.  They were delicious.  Craving satisfied.  The sweet potato fries were the ones with chipotle seasoning, amazing, that is all.

So I’m heading home to Peee Ay tomorrow for the first time since Christmas, and called my sister last night after I was hit with a brilliant idea.  Instead of bringing wine to our favorite BYOB establishment for dinner, we are bringing a bottle of Bethenny’s Skinny Girl Margarita.  Perfect.  Tequila goes with Chinese food right?  Well hey, I think tequila goes with anything.

Happy Thursday bitches.

I’m a Genius

Why you ask?  Because I managed to fix my camera!  I had a small suspicion that something in my purse had somehow managed to get stuck and that’s why it wasn’t opening, so last night I got a push-pin and stuck it between the lenses to try to dislodge anything that might be stuck.  When that didn’t work, I picked up my camera and banged the crap out of it face down against my counter.  Voila! The lens opened.  Now, I don’t recommend this method haha but it worked for now.

As I mentioned yesterday, I was taking yesterday off from the gym and running to rest my knee, and I am happy to report it is feeling much, much better today.  We’ll see how it feels over the weekend when I go for my run.

Anywho, a fixed camera means pictures yay!  Last night my sister and I ordered a Brooklyn Pizza and some french fries.

This pizza was so good, just like my favorite Old Fashioned pizza, but square and across the street instead of 20 minutes away.  I may have found a new favorite pizza, I have two slices for lunch today that I am very much looking forward to :).  I almost decided against pizza last night, since I’m off to NYC today and typically eat pizza once a day but meh whatever.

Alright, so here’s a funny story for ya.  The other night I had a dream that I could do 20 push-ups in a row, not ones on my knees but real ones and it was easy.  So at the gym on Wednesday I gave it a shot, haha I did two sets of 5.  Definitely not as  strong as I dreamt about being, but maybe someday.

Ok, happy Friday everyone!  What are you all up to this weekend?
