Not a Bad Friday

Happy Friday (well it's almost over...) So I guess happy weekend everyone!
I had a pretty boring breakfast this morning...

I also took my two chewy multi-vitamins. I need to purchase some CLA vitamins...
I guess my breakfast was sufficient.

I watched and episode of Army wives during breakfast. I am so addicted to that show! Sadly enough I am on season 4 on Netflix, and I believe season 5 is on TV now, and I don't have cable..booo

I truly believe that pre-workout supplements do me wonders! I prefer to take Jack'd prior to working out, but I still have a container of Super pump to finish. It gives me a jolt of energy to push through my workouts and it doesn't give me jitters.

Completed 15 sit-ups in 2 minutes. Omgoodness I have a ways to go!
18 knee push-ups in 2 minutes.

I did not do any running, my shins are quite sore! I stuck to the elliptical today and did shoulders and back. Was feeling great! I did get a tad light headed at the end of my workout but I think it was because it was awhile since I last ate. Again, water intake=8 cups :)

Took an hour nap today after the gym. It felt nice.

I found an AMAZING inspiration! Check out her facebook page:

She lost a HUGE amount of weight all on her own! No trainers!

Well that's all for today, I have nothing to rant about!

Oh Thursday...

Wind, wind and um more WIND! All night and all morning until FINALLY we got hit with a down pour and some thunderstorms! I was even informed of a tornado warning. Geez.

Once everything calmed down I was ready to head to the gym! I did my first sit-ups set today. I completed 25 in 2 minutes, with my feet under the couch. Not bad for my first attempt. Eventually I shall have to do them without my feet being held down!

Made it to the gym, did a 10min warm-up on the treadmill, 30min weight training (biceps and triceps), and then I did 3 miles on the elliptical. (410cal, 33:00min) Yay!

I spent about a half hour chatting with my mom in the parking lot. I had missed her call, so called her back. Just talking about birthday plans for my Dad! Umm pizza, beer and a birthday cake! lol

Made my way to Wal-Mart again to get some more workout clothing!

Yup, the only colors you'll ever see me in, except for the occasional purple and maybe sometime in the future greenish,tannish brown ;)

After Wal-Mart I went grocery shopping at Bottom Dollar Foods and Giant. I spent $70.00 for two weeks worth of breakfasts, lunches and dinners for two. I am getting better at this!

Surpassed my 8 cups of water AGAIN. That may get annoying, me announcing that all the time, but it is a HUGE accomplishment. lol

I am now making dinner and waiting for the fiance to call from work <3

Odds and Ends

I went to Wal-mart today after my dreadful sprints, hills and stairs workout. haha I needed to get a paper shredder to clean out my bill folders, it's just all piling up! Here's what I got:

Just a few workout items. Got all three things under $20.00! Love sales!

Today will be the third day that I have consumed 8 cups of water! I am so proud of myself no matter how small of a matter that is! My shins are beginning to get sore so I might just head to the gym tomorrow and do some biking or hop on the eliptical. I don't want to hurt myself.
I decided that I am not going to weigh myself until June 30th. I am hoping to be down 15-20lbs. We shall see.

Maybe I'll write later if anything exciting happens.

Morning Chat

Woke up at 9:30am, now that is more like it! No sunshine, just a nice cool breeze blowing through my window. I'm in love <3

Not quite sure what is on the agenda today besides making the grocery list and getting my training in! A new thing I've done with my water intake is as soon as I wake up I have to drink two cups before I can have breakfast. Now I LOVE breakfast! So those two cups go down pretty fast!

What did I have for breakfast today?

1 cup of milk, 1 scrambled egg, 1 piece of whole wheat toast with 1tbsp of low-fat peanut butter

Not quite sure what I am doing for training today? I was thinking a jog and working on some sprints. Then of course push ups and sit ups, ughh.

Have a great day!!!

Runners High?

Good afternoon! I am just in the mood to rant and rave about my day. I woke up SUPER early, like 7:30am and who the hell knows why? I always wake up after 10am. I began to clean and fold laundry and Toby made me a super breakfast! Love him!

I fought with my internet most of the day today, it did not want to work. Apparantly there is an outage near my area in PA, and we should expect difficulties. I've had nothing BUT difficulties with Verizon DSL internet!

Eventually I made my lazy ass go to the Lehigh Parkway to do some training! I ran steps 10x, OUCH that hurt and then I walk/jogged for about 1.5 miles and then walked another 1.5miles. Not bad! What I really noticed today was while I was jogging, the only thing on my mind was making it to my next "rest stop" and the music playing on my Ipod. No worries about money, weight, relationships, NOTHING! I loved it! Now I just need to get in shape so I can enjoy running even more.

I know my main reason for training, but for now I will enjoy the empty mind effect!

I then stopped at CVS and purchased a few things! Mainly I went because I wanted to dye my hair. If you would like to see what I got, I already blogged about it on my beauty blog Then I made my way to Subway for a 6in turkey sub, yummmmmy!

I shall succeed with my water intake today! 8 cups! WOO HOO! I always struggle to get there!

After I got home and enjoyed my lunch, I dyed my hair, just dark brown!

Well have a great rest of your day!

How I Feel

This my friends, is my calendar. This photo happens to be my favorite. I feel like I will snap at any moment, and this picture reminds me that I am crazy.

Who would have known at 22 years of age, I'd have so many mental stability issues? Who knew that I would know no one other than my Mom to understand? Who knew by now I'd fail with my finances and not be mentally capable of holding a job? Who the hell knew? Apparantly God knew.

I almost feel like jumping from a cliff is a better alternative then dealing with this mess of mine. I hope someone out there is real successful because of me. I was always told that some of us suffer more than others to help someone else out.

What matters to me is my family, my cats and the small amount of friends that I have.

The general public/working world don't care what problems you have and how you feel. Hell, I don't even know how I'll feel in two minutes. All I know, is I need a damn broom, dust pan and a trash can for this mess.

Oh what a glorious weekend...
Happy Easter

Cats, Dogs, Blood..Oh My

Today was a very, very interesting day!
I decided to take care of a cute little puppy for a friend of mine for two weeks!
She was such a doll and loved me! We played, I took her for a walk, well she kind of took ME for a run. ha ha. Needless to say, a very good puppy.
Now if you read anything about me, I LOVE cats and I own 5 of them. They have never been around a dog in their lives, so yes, they would be terribly frightened. Now I only was watching the dog for the day until my friend picked her, so no big deal, just keep the cats in their room for the time being.
Now my dumb ass needed a cord from the office, and as soon as I opened the door, my cat Mittens just ran out...well he made an error in judgement big time!

This is Mittens!

So Mittens went ballistic and was literally hanging from the blinds, not the curtains, the blinds. Hissing, growling, he looked like the devil. The logical thing would have been to grab the non aggressive puppy and put her in her cage and let the cat handle himself, but I guess "motherly" instinct happened and I wanted to help MY cat.

Before I knew it, my 3 fingers were covered in blood because Mittens bit the hell out of me and my arm was all scratched up. I totally overreact in situations that cause stress. I called my Fiance at work to come home and help me. I wanted to make sure the bite wasn't as bad as it felt. My friend came and got her dog. The bathroom had blood spots in multiple locations, it must have gotten on him.

I have been monitoring my wound, disinfecting it and such to make sure it doesn't get worse. It hurts like hell. Oh well. No one is to blame here, was just a freak accident.

Yeah, love my life...

What A Day...

I guess when you really sit back and reflect on your entire day, you realize all the strange/funny things that truly go on. Even though, it was just a "normal" day.

I got a wonderful 5 hours of sleep last night, that is an accomplishment in itself. I am not quite sure why i can't fall asleep anymore? Could it be who I really am? My new medication? Or all the annoying sounds in my apartment? Not a damn clue. My Mom actually woke me up with a phone call because I was taking her to the hospital for a blood test and we had to be there by 12:30. Funny enough she calls me from her cell phone while in bed, and I answer my phone, while laying in bed. We are two of kind I tell you!

I pick her up around 11:45 and apparently we realize that today is "let's pull out in from of Amy day." It was great, I always love testing my driving skills after I've been awake for an hour. It's cool, we made it to Sacred Heart on time and in one piece. We talked to this really funny./sweet 85 year old lady who was going in for an ultrasound. She was complaining that she needed to drink two cups of water before hand and that she can't use the bathroom. She was a trip. See I don't hate older people, I guess I just don't care for AARP Health Insurance customers.

Afterwords I treated my Mom to Panera Bread. She's never been there and it's been a while since I had. We stumble upon a dead bird, but only its wings were left. They did look like two angel wings, except these little legs were connected to them. ha ha. We would notice something like that! After two hours of a very nice heartfelt conversation we headed back home.

My Dad and Marissa were getting in the same time we pulled out. Lovely timing! I spent some time talking to my Dad about really random things. I get nervous talking to him because I never know what not to say in front of him. I am sure there are things he would not care to know. ha ha. I leave those conversations for my Mother.

Finally left around 7:00, was offered dinner but declined because I'd rather eat with my love. I made a very important stop at Best Buy to get him the game that he has really wanted; MLB 2K11, which is now playing in our living room. He was so happy when I gave it to him. He looked like a kid on Christmas morning!

Well, that's my random babbling for the day, tomorrow is filled with so much to do, I'm not quite sure how it will go!
