i stayed up too late.

progress pictures

i took progress pictures (but don't post them)
i showed them to dave. he said my ribs make it look like i have a 6 pack.
stupid poking out ribs are so annoying.
i took measurements and when i flex my bicep my measurement 10.75 instead of 10 in resting. but i did the measuring myself with my other arm so i'm not sure how exact that is.

the progress pictures actually make me feel less like i'm making progress.

no gym for me today. it's late already.
i think i will read and use the exercise bike and then i'll get out my work computer to do a few things. I didn't get everything done that I wanted to today.

The stampin' up party went alright. I think 2o f 5 that were here are ordering. 2 people cancelled at the last minute. 3 or 4 people who didn't come are ordering.

a year ago

i have 2 canvas bags and 3 small boxes to go through of papers and junk that i accumulated.

i found this one sheet of my exercises but don't know the date
i think last summer
total 2.43 mile. 242 cal (so must have been a treadmill)
35 min total
6 min walk
1 min 6.0 mph
6 min walk
1 mn 6.0 mph
6 min walk
1 min
5 min walk
2 min
3 min walk
rest was cooldown 3mph or something

i remember when i would try to use the treadmill there my knee couldn't handle more than a min or 2 of running so i tried breaking it up to get more cardio in. and i think on the "walking" i would read a book.
i wish i had a long eekend every weekend

today we went to north park and walked the loop around the lake. i thought it was a 3 mile loop. but it was a 5 mile loop. took an horu and 53 min. the first 3 miles we did in 20-21 min each but then slowed up. it was hot. or got hot. i was proud of dave though.

then we went to cheesecake factory at ross park mall.
then i came home and finished pumping up my athletic ball i forget the official name.
then i mowed and did some yard work. an hour and 20 min worth.
the day flew by.

Friday, May 22, 2009

then 5.5 mph for 3.5 min

yardwork sucks and takes too much time

i was going to mow the back half of the yard to make it even. 2 nights ago i mowed the front half
instead we aerated the dirt in the patches without grass. dug out patches of rock. found a patch that had dry cement and when we watered to make the dirt easier to work with it was hardening up. it was heavy and not fun. we filled big holes with top soil but not them all because our 2 bags of soil weren't enough. then we put grass seed down, and then this stuff that makes it grow better/faster. i added more dirt around the plant we planted. we added mulch to that entire area. then i put mulch around our one tree. do you know the fabric is still around the tree? you can see it. i thought you get rid of the fabric when you plant stuff. guess i was wrong. even though i added mulch to the tree our neighbors (206) still have much higher mulch beds. i'm pretty sure this took from 6:30 until now.

guess we have to save mowing for another night.
i'm filthy.

i'm so tired. i'm going ot try to go to sleep. lets see if this works.


i'm about to go mow the lawn while pb cooks dinner.

Friday, May 15, 2009

last night we stayed up later than normal.
pb woke me up earlier than we get up for work.
i guess this gives me more time to get my lengthy to do list done.
today we went to the pirate game. we left between the 8th and 9th inning. we were winning 1-0 when we left. we lost 3-1 though

tomorrow i have 4 places to go. i think i'll only go to 2 though.

today i didn't spend as long working out
at 5:00 my admin told me that my manager said to go home and that we could "leave early" because of the pens game. does she not understand flex time. and 5:00 is not early

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

i spent an hour and 50 min working out today at the gym

Saturday, May 9, 2009


spent 3 hours or maybe 2.5 hours today painting.
i got the first coat on the other 2 walls and then the 2nd coat on the 2 walls i painted last night.
pb came and helped at one point. only the one part. and i think it's all messed up. there are distinct lines where the roller went because he didnt go over it in multiple ways.
i keep having dreams that i'm in some sort of classes (the type vary) and i'm not getting mys tuff done on-time.

Friday, May 8, 2009

i didn't really have any plans this weekend so i thought i could get caught up on all kinds of stuff that has been on my to do list. well tonight after dinner we picked out a paint color and i started painting. i have 2 walls painted but it's bed time.
