A Very Rare Opportunity...

Here I sit, on my sofa, with time to spare this morning! 
I actually woke up and got out of bed the minute the alarm went off!  No hitting the snooze button or anything!  I am amazed!  It's amazing how much I can get done in the morning when I get my tail out of bed on time!   So since all the morning requirements are completed and I have about 20 minutes before I need to leave for work...I said...BLOG TIME!

I successfully completed my first 3-day weight training!  I have successfully made every muscle in my body sore.  My last weight training was Friday and my upper body is still sore!  I think I am lifting too much.  I don't ever remember being this sore when I'd weight train in the past.  It's probably a sign of my inactivity and I'm getting old! 

I had a great week overall.  I did not work out on Saturday as I had planned.  So this week, I got 5 days of physical activity!  I think that is a record! LOL!  Yesterday it was a bit overcast, and there was a chance of rain, but I still made it out to the beach for a bike ride.  Surprisingly the beach, was sunny and warm.  This bike ride was not the best!  I ended up getting a flat tire!  It made me sad, an unfortunately, there were no little bike shop in sight.  So I had to dismount, and walk my bike all the way back to the car!  It was painful and long ride back! 

My vacation from work is right around the corner!  I can't wait!  I'll do some short day trips, and I am gonna get my rock climbing classes in!  It shall be fun!  Well I am gonna leave you guys now!  Chat with ya later!

Breakfast Babblings!

I am here at work sitting at my desk and I said, I should blog! :0)

I made a new breakfast concoction today.  I have not thought of a cool name for it yet.  It is 4 hard boiled eggs...egg whites only, some pastrami from Trader Joes and some salsa.  It is some really good eats, It may not sound good, but it is oh so yummy going down!  I just cut everything up the best I could with my plastic fork and knife and digged in!  I love it!  The Pastrami is a nice change from my normal, ham or bacon for breakfast!  Pastrami may just be my new breakfast meat!

Pastrami egg & salsa breakfast

Oops...Been Missing in Action Again!

My last post was October 5th!  Oh how time is flying!  October is officially half way over!  Well since my  last post here are a few things I have taken notice off:

  1. The end of the year is near!  And my undertaking list is not yet complete.
  2. The end of the year is near! And I need to get to my goal weight.
  3. The end of the year is near...and it's time to go into overdrive.
I know how I am, once the weather changes, I change.  Which in layman terms mean...I get lazy.  You are not gonna get me outside in the cold, to do nothing! and I mean nothing!  So I really have to push myself for these next couple of months.  I have goals to reach and I intend to reach them!

That being said, I have paid for a few lessons of rock climbing.  Just gotta find the time to do it!  But I am going to do it.  I have been high on cardio and low on weight training - I am working on increasing the strength training and maintaining the cardio level.  Yes maintaining the cardio level.  I have been eating way more calories than I should....I can get faster results with cutting some calories on a weekly basis.  So from now until the end of the year I will make small adjustments in my calorie intake.  I started off at 1800 calories, I have reduced to 1600 over the last 2 weeks.  And I will reduce every couple of weeks.  It's time to tighten it up...I am almost down to the wire...TIME TO TIGHTEN IT UP!  

Weight training has been in effect for the last 2 weeks...sadly I only did one day each week.  This week, I am going hard...3 days!  I hope I can walk and move when I am all done!  I am in no way shape or form a personal trainer, but I have done this too many times, I know the exercises I need to do.  Time to squat it out, lunge it out, plant it out, and all those other things I hate doing.  Dusting off the kettle bells, the dumbells, and going hard!  So that is where I am right now...Going hard!  

I will go now...stay tuned!

How ya Doing Pumpkins? :0)

Hey gang.  It has been a long time since I posted.  Some times I feel like there is not enough hours in the day.  Since I decided to title this post How Ya Doing Pumpkins, I have 2 pumpkin related stories to share!

The first Pumpkin related story, goes a little something like this.   YOGURTLAND!!!!!  Has officially introduced its Pumpkin yogurt!  Oh how I love Pumpkin!  I was in heaven.  I tried it yesterday for the first time, and me o my!  It's the shiznit to say the least.

The second pumpkin story, goes a little something like this.  Decided to try to a different spin class last night. The instructor's name was Anthony.  And I am so sorry, but something about seeing men in tight biker short is so unattractive.  It took every bit of me not to start laughing.  I will say that Anthony is a good teacher, he is a bit obnoxious, and annoying, but overall a great, challenging class!  So last night, maybe 30 minutes into class, he says, "How Ya Doing Pumpkins!"  Again...the desire to immediately laugh was there.  The class was not crowded there was only 7 of us..2 women and 5 men.  So to hear him address everyone as Pumpkins, rather me anyways!

I am happy to report that my PMS overeating binge has appeared to stop.  I was actually able to eat normal amounts of food yesterday.  I was not craving everything in the world!  So that was a plus and a much needed change.  I can eat myself into a 10-pound weight weight gain when its PMS time.

Well that is it for now, nothing to exciting or new going on.  So I will just leave it like that for now.  Busy weekend ahead!  tata!
