A Blubbering Fool

Last night as I curled up in bed with Lifetime on, I prepared myself for what I knew would be an emotional hour of television.  Their new show “Coming Home” was premiering, and since I couldn’t even make it through the commercials without tearing up I was trying to mentally prepare myself.  Sure enough I spent a good deal of the show crying like a baby.  Especially when the little kids would cry, that got me every time.  Damn you Lifetime.  It really  is an adorable show though.

Since yesterday was a pretty boring day, I don’t really have much to talk about today.  I watched a lot of Criminal Minds, the Caps game, decided I should definitely not be allowed to read baby blogs, and did some laundry.  I was very excited to have nice clean sheets to curl up in last night, so of course I woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat.  Typical.  At least I had clean sheets for a few hours.

Looking at my calendar this morning, I was informed that Lent starts today (I’m such a good Catholic girl) uuuh I doubt I’ll give anything up.  I’ll also probably still eat meat on Friday’s.  In my high school days, I used to use Lent as an excuse to restrict things from my diet.  I would give up meat, chips, soda, all in an effort to try to lose weight, and I wasn’t the only one.  I went to an all girls Catholic high school, and it almost seemed like a competition as to who could give up the most impressive thing.  Lunch time in the spring was a sad sight, as too many girls picked their way through their meal, throwing most of it away.  So yeah, I won’t be participating, as I haven’t in many years.

I have a feeling I’ll be spending most of today browsing hair styles online (mine gets chopped tomorrow) and making an extensive packing list for this weekend.  It’s looking like my rain boots will have to make the trip, so whatever little space in my brain was still contemplating carry on only has officially been eliminated.  I’ll be checking a bag.  That just means I can pack more clothes.  Or go shopping and buy a lot of stuff ;).  Alright, well have a good Monday!

 

 

Rookie Mistake

Well I made it to the gym last night, and just as I expected I’ve lost a significant amount of endurance.  Also, imagine my disappointment when I went to turn my iPod on and it was completely dead.  Luckily, the LA Fitness down here is brand new and has those fancy treadmills that you can hook your iPod up to, and I was still able to listen to some music.  I managed to pull out a 3 mile run at about 9:30 pace and then 20 minutes on the elliptical for a nice 50 minute cardio session.  I’m somewhat annoyed at myself for letting all the work I did for my half slip away, but at least I have three months to get it back.

After the gym I made the rookie mistake of going grocery shopping, after not eating since lunch and starving for dinner.  Let’s just say my bill was a little higher than normal, and I have no idea what some of my random purchases were about.  Also, I looked ridiculous in my dress coat, running shorts and tank top.  No wonder I got some strange looks.

Yes, I am in the Macaroni and Cheese aisle.  What I told you I was hungry and made some random purchases, like bunny shaped macaroni.  After an hour of meandering up and down aisles, I finally made it out of the grocery store and got home only to have every single bag rip as I was taking them out of my car.  Let’s just say there was some cursing, and the jumbo pack of toilet paper may have gotten dropped kicked up to the front porch.

I finally settled down with some dinner and wine just in time for The Craigslist Killer to start on Lifetime.  Don’t judge me, I’d been looking forward to it for a while.  Honestly, it was a little disappointing.  Although I’ll probably have even more trust issues with men now, because it was still pretty creepy.  Next one I’m looking forward to is about Amanda Knox and the murder in Italy.  Yes I’m a geek, and I don’t care.

The plan is to head to the gym again after work today, so hopefully I make it there.  As long as traffic is relatively light I think I’ll be able to convince myself, although it is Tuesday so anything could happen.  Catch ya later!

Things I Learned in Therapy

Happy Friday!  Mine started off great because I got a free coffee at Starbucks!  My ex’s dad was in line in front of me and bought mine for me, nothing like a free drink to start off the day on the right foot.

Last night was PT, and I am very excited to tell you all that I am officially finished with it!  No more two-hour appointments twice a week,  and I can finally get back into a normal workout routine (which is good because one of my favorite pairs of jeans wouldn’t fit over my ass this morning).  They told me not to be shy, and to call if I even felt like I was starting to have problems again.  I assured them not to worry, that I will be a giant pain in the ass.  Now I am on my own, it’s definitely a little scary.  I’ll really have to make sure I keep up with my strengthening and stretching.  Three and a half months of physical therapy is more than enough for me, I do not want to end up back there.  At least I got a free t-shirt out of it, I do love free t-shirts.

I actually did learn some things during my weeks and weeks of PT.  I thought I’d share some tips.

If you have problems with your toes falling asleep, try tying your laces on the outside of your foot.  It keeps the knot from cutting off your circulation at the pulse point.

Strong hips and glutes = happy injury free knees!

Stretch, stretch, stretch, stretch.  Really this is the most important lesson I learned.  I really used to half ass the stretching after a run because I was typically sick of being in the gym at that point.

Aaaah, it hurts so good!  I’m going to work on making a video of the actual exercises that I did during my weeks of pt.  I’m hoping that it will be helpful for everyone else in preventing IT band injuries.  It will also help me not forget what the hell I’m supposed to do, haha.

Dinner last night was nothing new around here.  I’m still dealing with a broken oven, and since I don’t want to blow the house up anytime soon it had to be something either stove top, microwave, or toaster oven cookable.  I went with toaster oven.

Flat bread pizza, I know you’re all shocked.  Unfortunately there is only one piece of this delish flat bread left in my freezer, my sister and I may be battling it out in the near future.

Pizza sauce, leftover taco meat from last week, cheese, and turkey pepperoni.  The seasoning in the ground beef really did the job of adding flavor that I normally would be missing since I didn’t have any peppers or onion.  And then, I celebrated my completion of PT with a Pineapple Vodka and Sprite Zero.  Um any vodka lovers out there I recommend the Sky Infusions flavored vodka.  Raspberry and Pineapple are my favorite, the Grape reminds me of cough medicine.

I also watched a horrible Lifetime movie with Kristin Stewart circa 2004.  Don’t ask me why, I blame the vodka.  Alright, that’s all I got for today, someone tell me their fun weekend plans!
