Out of it. Need to get back in it. In other news, I fell in love with this dog:
His current name is Dewey and his absolutely adorable and precious, incredibly well behaved. Just an awesome dog. Tart rescued him and I'd really like to adopt him, we'll see what happens.

Didn't work out today, again. Tomorrow's not looking so great either. Fail fail fail. :/

I've been in a funk

I didn't do much working out for March and I'm not happy with that. In fact, it just feels like a giant failure really. Out of 4 weeks, I was sick 1 and a half, had a mild sprain for 1 week and kind of took it easy on myself for the remainder of the time.

I know I shouldn't beat myself up, because it won't do much, but its really hard not to. I think I have to revamp my efforts. I still haven't worked them all out yet but there are going to be intense.

Anyway, more later. :|

Well, turns out I'm a clumsy ass mofo. Sprained my ankle, a mild sprain, but a sprain nonetheless, about 5 days ago. Went hiking on it twice, stood for far too long on it, tried wearing heels on it today and yeah finally had to go in to the doctor. I have to wear an aircast sort of splint thing for about a week, elevate, ice and try to take it easy. UGH. Total mood buster. :(

Early mornings

suck ass.

Pardon my French, but they really do. I got to sleep in all of last week because I wasn't taking Van to class, but now we're back to the grind.

Anyway, going to have my some Stoneyfield yogurt and my PB&B&H sammich for breakfast. I want caffeine!

Food. Food. Food.

My Sunday's revolved around food. Not in a fatty kind of way, but in an informational sort of learning experience. BULLETS!

"Food, Inc.": I'm kind of a weirdo when it comes to movies and books. Like I've said before, I like media that I can learn from. Stories about other people, research, reference. One of my favorite books is this giant dictionary-sort of book on Ingredients! It's awesome, and Food Inc. is as well. Director Robert Kenner take "Fast Food Nation" to another level altogether. Kenner, with help from Eric Schlosser, author of FFN and Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma, showed the many levels of where food is coming from today. It was all very eye-opening, very close to home and very informative. Please watch if you care about what you're putting in your body and what goes on behind the scenes.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution: Americans come off as hard-headed jackasses. It's a pity because really, what does Oliver have to gain from trying to show Americans how to better their lives? We come off as callous. But there's hope. There's hope in the form of a mother who wants to do the best by her kids. There's hope in kids who don't want to get picked on anymore in school. There's hope in kids learning to make better choices and learning about fruits and veggies. It's an interesting premise and I'm excited to see where the show will go.

Health Care Reform: Let's face it, health care wouldn't be getting so expensive and out of control if people treated their bodies with a little more respect, whether it be quitting smoking, exercising more or eating less-processed foods. Thank goodness the vote passed, but we, as a nation, should all be taking better care of ourselves.

Anyway, I'll stop before I get preachy. This week is going to be intense. I'll try to update more frequently. :D

I've been a bad blogger

I haven't been updating on the daily and I'm sorry. Again, I've been busy but I should be able to find time to blog...jeez.

Anyway, my goal weight for this month is 251. I'm at 252.2 as of this morning so all the crazy amounts of cardio is paying off. I've been going for at least 45 minutes and yesterday I did an hour and 10 minutes. Ok, just wanted to update for the sake of updating, back to work :|

I'm back

Well....here's the thing: I came down with some sort of respiratory thing. I'm finally over it, though so that's good. Last week was a test of endurance and I honestly don't know how I could have done it 2-3 months ago.

At the same time I didn't keep working out. Partly because I was sick, but also because I was "busy." Yeah, being busy sucks but I have to find that 1 and a half for myself. No one else is going to find it for me. Needless to say, I have to be better at planning things out. I have to run to the store and get some milk, nanners and what not...I'm crazy exhausted, my ankle hurts and I need to do laundry...oh well.

In other news: The Taylor Swift/John Mayer concerts I went to Austin for last week were flippin' amazing. I can't stop listening to either of their catalogs...which is making me a little love sick but I'll get by. Definitely some of the best shows I've ever been too. :D

Anywhoo, back to work.
