my friends page is lacking in updates. it's sad times when i go to my friends page and then there aren't any new updates. it's even sadder when this happens multiple days in a row.
i used to go to the gym everyday and like it
now i seem to try to come up with an excuse not to go
sometimes numerous excuses.

i had bacon, eggs, pancakes, and toast for breakfast.
then i remembered i wanted to take my measurments this morning since i haven't in almost 2 months.
I should also take progress pictures. I haven't since May 30. Today is the first day I looked at the ones from May 30. I have older ones. Maybe if i get them to a good file size, i'll post some. a little busy today though.
I was looking at th epics and they don't even look good. i feel i look better than the pictures show. I always do. you cant tell i have muscles or anything.
i'm also getting fat according to the scale.
i'm slacking at exercising lately.
I've been doing shin exercises though. I may do them as soon as I make this post so that they get done today before i get dressed and we start heading places.

i need some sort of thing that will post my twitters to here. pb knows someone who did that but that application or whatever is no longer around.

my fingernail is stained orange from doritos that I ate yesterday.

I want to see if there si a way to rearrange my craft room. I also need a new desk chair. i want one without arms so that i can actually push my chair in further. i want to switch where my mac and dell are.

We named my dell "foggy." Our basement computer is shady. our family room computer is sunny.

I also should get to updating my website. that picture on the home page is so old. I should make new LJ icons. These are all so old.

I thought about geting a hair cut today. going somewhere for it. i just don't know where to go.

Saturday, July 25, 2009

finished doing my shin exercises
maybe i'll do laundry since laundry needs to get done and i don't know what we're doing for the day.
gmat is over.
they gave a score for verbal and quantitative. did worse than i thought on math and better than i thought on verbal.
the writing is probably horrible.

Friday, July 24, 2009

i'm starting to get really stressed about the gmat tomorrow
i don't even know where the test is.
it's at 8am.

ugh 12 hours. less than that

i went running tonight. i haven't been because of my shins. well i thought they were getting better. haven't hurt in days. I was wrong. they didn't even last as many laps as last time.

I consistently drop 2 or so seconds off my lap time from before (even though i keep doing laps) but after so many (not a lot) i'm too dead. if it was a 1 mile race i think i would be good.

Today i only lasted to middle of lap 8. last time it was middle of lap 10. ugh
i did get my fasted 1 mile time yet. 8:49 and during that mile i read and responded to a text.

my warmup lap was pretty quick for reading an email and writing a full sentence reply. i'm beginning to think my iPhone is a bad idea as my timer.

Emily and I decided earlier today that it wouldn't be a good idea for either of us to do a 5k on August 1. me because of my shins and her because of hosting a house warming/engagement party later that day.

Today i wore my hair up. I wore a blue scarf i got a relay for life. I got told i looked cute by my manager (a female so don't get any ideas). and someone else told me I had been looking cute lately. maybe one of them said pretty because i don't get called cute and especially not twice in one day.
i think it's all the lifting. so i look nicer.

so far i only have up to G for phone numbers entered in my phone. I have email addresses from google. we forgot to have at&t copy my numbers over for me. i counted and i only have 58 numbers in the phone. i never got the numbers from my last phoen to this phone and ended up only copying over half of them last time.

but now that i have an iPhone, i need to get more emails. I should see if there is a way to get LJ posts on there. I never set up facebook app. I actually didn't set up most apps. I set up 2.

I meant to review for the gmat tonight. ooops.

working out

i did body pump today
2nd time this week.
3rd time ever
i upped the lunge track. forgetting that last time my legs were shaking by the end.
then i realized it was that track that made me lightheaded not the one after. but i handled myself and shook off the blacking out. i did the next track with 1kg in each hand instead of 2.5 like they said. (that's 2.2 lbs instead of 5 lbs. man makes it seem like it should be easier)

my knee didn't hurt on the squat track. it was just very hard to do.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

i got my iphone
i need to spend time figuring it out. but i dont really have time.

i'm so tired right now because ive een staying up too late. too late doing work.

Tonight i dont feel like doing anything but I should be productive but it's already bedtime.

Obama's press conference ate up my evening. I didn't even get to watch regular TV.

Sunday, July 19, 2009


today i went to sleep at 12:30 or so but didn't fall asleep right away. then i woke up at 1:40. 2 i went to walk at the relay for life. I think i did 11 laps. 3:15 or so came home. went on the computer. then went to sleep.
around 9 or so i started waking up often but i'd go back to sleep. i finally woke up at 11
didn't get anything done until 1:30 when we headed to my aunts.
I hate too much.

then aroudn 3 or 4 my cousin showed up with the baby. He was shy at first. around 6:00 he liked me though.
I left shortly after 7
and got home an hour later
then had dinner (only a little. still full)
then watched big brother and then the listener.

and now i'm mad that all weekend i didn't read my gmat book it took me 2 naps worth to make it through 1 page of telling me about reading comprehension. i learned verbal section is intermixed and if there is a story, the story is on the left and then 1 question at a time on the right half of the screen. silly naps. i need to get to practicing the verbal section.

Saturday, July 18, 2009

today i got pb to hang out with me saying we could go to breakfast. he already ate. we went to mcd's
it sucked.
well he liked it. i didn't. i never do though. i tried something new today.
then we went to panera. i got a bagel and soup
i ate my bagel before my soup came up.
so i had 2 breafkasts and 1 lunch so far today.
i was so full i couldn't move.
I don't seem to post here as much as I would like.

I want to go running but i can't. Callie told me not to run until these shins feel better. It makes me so mad.

I'm doing the Relay for Life tonight (9-10pm and 2-3am). I also wanted to visit the baby when I'm that close to McKeesport but I don't know if he'll be around.

I have a ton of freckles on my arms. I wish i also had a little bit of tan. oh well.

Everyday Dave tells me i'm on the wrong computer. I'm still using my mac instead of my dell.

1 week until the gmat. Man am I going to suck.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

i just took my hair out of the ponytail and it's wet
i took my shower at 8am.
i forgot about the cop on the way to work. stopped in the lane. talking to a cyclist while another one sat in the ditch. with both their bicycles were against the grass

lots of things

today was such a bizarre day

I ran in the morning before work. It's the 2nd time. I only lasted until the middle of the 10th lap before my shins started killing me.

I then came home, showered, got ready, took my picture because my face was still red

(This shirt for a better view. regular black pants and my grandma shoes)
and then headed to work. After my shower I just threw my hair up in a pony-tail almost bun thing. Up until about 4:00PM it was still damp where it was all smashed together.
My cheeks also stayed red then pink until about 11:00AM

I think it's only the third time i've worn my hair up. The other 2 times I used a claw thing and this was the only time with regular ponytail holders. The other 2 times I wore turtle necks too.
Well all day today I got compliments about my appearance. I got compliments about being all dressed up. Mind you in that picture from 2 weeks ago to the day I was wearing much fancier shoes and the same shirt. I had on a fancier necklace last time too. I think I got more compliments today than the last year put together. Also I noticed people eyeing me.

Then after work I headed to the gym. The cleaning guy thought I was a new trainer. Then after I said no, he introduced himself to me. He gave me a fist bump instead of shaking hands. it was weird since he's probably in his 40s. His name is Rico.

Then today the workout was so good. I was able to increase weights. I did more than normal and i felt great. I had gotten so weak by the end that lifting up my purse and gym bag were so hard like they were heavy even though they weren't. I love that.

I came home to find the top coat put on our driveway and also almost all our neighbors on our side of the street. We are all parked on the road.

I almost ran before work. that didnt happen. i was going to go at lunch and work out and right when i was about to leave the help desk called to take care of the problem of me not receiving all my emails. then i wanted to go after work but i had to get an allergy shot and decided to meet dave for dinner and he wouldn't wait. then at 8:45 i wanted to run but then dave said he was watching big brother (from yesterday) so i didn't go then. that's 4 times today that I didn't exercise but thought about it.

slippery slope to not exercising anymore.
I'm going tomorrow morning for sure!

should I do a 5k on August 1? Since July 1, I only ran once. That was a slow jog. I also don't think i have a buddy to hang out with before and after.

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

it took me a long time to get home from work today. stupid construction. i forgot about it. i knew after 6pm they go down to 1 lane but i didn't process it really
i think it took me 45 min to get home. I wish could ahve done a U turn and then figured a new way home but I didn't have a GPS so i was scared.
Why is it that when I give training with someone else, they mess up so I have to correct them and then on the course evaluations, they get positive remarks and im not mentioned

Monday, July 13, 2009

i got a twitter

i got a twitter earlier today. my name was too long. it was quite annoying. i tried and tried to come up with a new name. all good ones were taken.
I am going to try to find something that will post my twitter updates to here but I don't know if it will happen.

birthday cake

i gave daddy some of the leftover b-day cake. i thought i kept about 6 pieces worth
dave and i had that tonight for dessert. we each had 2 pieces.
i feel like i'm going to throw up

Sunday, July 12, 2009

to help my mom's church out next weekend i'm walking the relay for life from 2-3am.
also walking 9-10pm too.


the in-laws drove me absolutely insane.

bad sign

it's a bad sign when you are asked "is this a weed or a plant?" because the weed is so large.

Friday, July 10, 2009

silly alarms

I've been up for awhile
but my alarm just went off
i had to run to turn it off
others heard it who were sleeping. i could tell.
the in-laws arrived. their flight was about an hour late. so we got home close to midnight. took an hour for the tour or so i guess since it's 1:00 now. it's way past our bedtime.

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

it is so hard to wake up. I'm so tired.

i had a dream about a big spider. it woke me up.
i found a watch that's been missing for 8 months or so.

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

i didn't have any pictures of my craft room
i spent an hour cleaning off the desk

picasa album

hard to believe this is clean huh.

i also wondered if it counted as cleaning if i moved stuff from one desk to the other.

Monday, July 6, 2009

cleaning is not fun. also i'm so hot.
i brought work home to do. looks like i'm not getting it done today.

I worked so long today.

then i went to the gym. i hadn't lifted for my arms since june 26. and it's surprising how hard every thing was that i was trying to do. not good. i did liek 1/3 a workout. oops.

Sunday, July 5, 2009


i just added layers to my hair
i had layers before. i cut 2 inches and then an inch. so it's more layers overall.
i'm no sure if it looks good.

Saturday, July 4, 2009

today we went to the cheesecake factor for lunch. but we didn't leave until 2:00pm. i was a little lightheaded by that time. then we came home. and then i took a nap. 2.5 hour nap. oops. i could probably stil fall back to sleep.


I ran a 5k today

about 31 min. i started late so many people. it took me about 30 seconds to cross the start line (I thin it was actually 31:24 but i said about 31 because of not starting right). i was so mad i didn't have a watch.
it was so hilly

i hit 2 miles at 20 min
my shins killed me.
it was entirely on roads

so it was the first i ran on roads and the first i ran on hills since the surgery. actually since i lived at deauville park

I beat haley by over a minute

i didn't walk at all.
i didn't push myself or sprint at the end. i feared messing up my knee.
this 8 yr old or so sprinted by me at the end. she had someone there cheering for her.
pb wouldn't go to cheer for me.

i finished and went back to before the finish and cheered for haley.

Friday, July 3, 2009

i'm so stressed out about this 5k it's crazy
well my "holiday" is over.
today i went to the movies. went to target, weedwacked. and i don't know what else but i've been up since 8.

Thursday, July 2, 2009

we cooked dinner tonight
it took forever
the potatoes burnt
so i made mashed potatoes impromptu instant
more of the burnt taters got eatten than the mashed taters. i think because they didn't have a nice container so it wa a pot with a lid.
