I’ve decided on Verizon…just waiting on my phone to come in! 1 week ago
Took a yoga class with boyfriend yesterday and did an intense leg workout in the morning. Woo! Also splurged on some protein powder…I’m not gonna go crazy with it, but the warm weather fills me up like food and makes it hard to eat. 1 week ago
A week ago, I started jogging. It doesn’t make sense to start running before I master jogging now, does it? Every day, I do three miles at the park. As of right now, it takes me about 40 minutes. Speed isn’t my main concern yet. Just finishing my three miles is. The heat and humidity make it a little hard for this asthmatic to breathe, so I’m just impressed I can keep up a moderate pace.
If I can do three miles in half an hour before the end of the year, it will be my proudest fitness moment yet. 1 week ago
Finally! These new plugs are wonderful! 1 week ago
I’ve gone jogging for five days this past week! The only reason it’s not seven is because it rained for two days. But rest days are good for you, too!
Already, there is a difference in my stamina. The first day, I barely made it the two and a half miles. Four jogs later, and I’m already jogging more than walking and for longer intervals. I can’t wait until I can jog the whole thing! Then I can start working on my speed!
I like that I have this 5k obstacle course coming up. I feel like I’m not just working out, but training for something. Having somewhat of a goal and a set deadline makes me feel like there’s more purpose to working out.
Not that you need a purpose to work out, but it does give me a little extra oomph. 1 week ago
My bedroom was a mess, so I spent a few hours straightening it up today. It’s amazing how much stuff I can keep in such a tiny space.
It’s crazy how much better I feel just having some space to move about. I’m lying on my floor right now. This is the first time I’ve been able to see my floor in weeks. I’m not completely done, but I’m just exhausted from it.
Just having space, and it’s not even a lot of it, makes it easier to breathe. I can stretch on my floor, write, dance, paint, meditate, whatever. It’s like a little bit of chaos relieved.
I think I’m feeling so creative right not because I uncovered so many notebooks, comic books, drawing pads, markers, colored pens, and other art supplies. Since they’ve been found, they want to be used! 1 week ago
It seems like it’s the trendy thing now to do these themed 5ks, obstacle courses, and mud runs. I think that’s pretty awesome. A friend of mine signed up for six of them and asked me if I’d like to do one with her. I said sure, signed up for one and OH MY GOD IT’S IN THREE WEEKS HOW THE HELL DO I TRAIN FOR THIS?
I am in good shape…I’m not in excellent shape. I’m so nervous!
No lie, the second I got off the phone with her and finished signing up for the 5k, I put on my running shoes and went on a 5k jog.
I do an hour long workout every other day. I’m now doing an hour of cardio every day.
How fit can I get in three weeks? 1 week ago
Yesterday, I had the house to myself for an hour. I moved all the furniture to give me some space, turned on Pandora, and hooped like I’ve never hooped before. It was glorious! 1 week ago
Took a bellydance class 1 week ago
These entries aren’t even about me trying to help myself. They’re just about how I feel. I don’t know if it’s helping. I’m doing this wrong.
Today, I worked out for about three hours. I was done after the first hour, but I felt happy, so I kept going. Tonight, I had intentions of bar hopping down the shore to drop off my resume, like I did two nights ago. There is one specific place I have in mind that I think needs help but I wasn’t able to make it to on Monday.
I showered, got dressed…and then lost all motivation. There were a million and one things preventing me from leaving. My gps is dead. My phone hardly works. The temp agency might call me back. I haven’t checked craigslist. I don’t know where I’m going.
I’ll just stay home.
I always feel better, so much better, once I am out of the house. But sometimes, it’s too hard to get myself made up and out the door. Now it’s too late. I’m bored and furious with myself. 1 week ago
I’ve worked out no less than four times a week. I feel really good about that. What’s helping me keep my momentum is not making any rules for myself. If I want to do arms two days in a row, so be it. Three hours hula hooping and nothing else, fine. My goal is to be moving more because it’s healthier than spending all day on the internet.
Yesterday I finally made it out to the hula hoop class…but got SO lost that I missed the class. I ended up taking a bellydance class instead. I don’t know if I’m mature enough to go back! When we were doing shoulder shakes, I was the only one giggling and thanking my sports bra for holding everything in place.
Today I walked about two and a half miles, with brief bits of jogging thrown in there and did an hour long medium intensity work out.
A friend of mine wants me to do one of those 5k obstacle courses with her, so I’m going to try to do more jogging throughout the week. 1 week ago
We may have found a place. We have to call Thursday to put in an application. Crossing our fingers.. 2 weeks ago
Yesterday I drove around to a few places and dropped off my resume.
Today I got a call from a staffing agency with a job for me. The job sounded great…until they got to the pay rate. It’s barely $2 over minimum wage. How on earth am I supposed to survive on that? 2 weeks ago
Every few years, I spend another $100 or so on a newer better digital camera. Why not spend the few hundred at once and get a nice camera that will probably last me a lifetime? 2 weeks ago
The second week in July, bf and I might be driving down to South Carolina for a week. I’m excited! 2 weeks ago
I love this! My boyfriend and I used to make a yearly bucket list of easy and fun things to do so we’d never get bored. For some reason we stopped, but this is inspiring me to do it again. Thanks (again) for the inspiration! 2 weeks ago
Thank you for your enthusiasm! 2 weeks ago
What’s very strange is that I feel as if my eyes aren’t as healthy as they used to be, but every eye doctor I go to says my eyes are fine. They’re much drier, more sensitive to light, and my cornea still rips if I don’t put drops in first thing in the morning. Yet every ophthalmologist says my eyes are healthy. 2 weeks ago
How I did it: My lifelong acne finally got so bad that I was just desperate. I had heard about the oil cleansing method, but I was initially reluctant to try it. Haven't we always heard that oil was bad for your face? Nothing else had ever helped though, so how bad could it really be compared to everything else?
