A collection of randomness, things I love and find inspiring. Currently a blog to help me become strong and Fit the healthy way. =D
I so wish I could have gone to the MRKH day downstate. It would have been amazing to actually meet other women with this stupid syndrome.
I try not to think of myself on Mother’s day, but today my boyfriend brought it up. He told me, when we finally lived together again that we were going to get at least 2 or 3 cats and/or a dog and that they would be our “fur babies” and that would be our family. It was so sweet and unexpected.
Living alone as a young adult,
Pros: If I want a brownie at 10;45 at night, there is no one to tell me that’s a bad idea.
Cons: If I want a brownie at 10:45 at night, there is no one to tell me that’s a bad idea
So yesterday, I was driving home…..And I started to reminisce, this is a bit rambling so I apologize.
I messed around with using my new exercise ball. I think I got one that was a bit too big for me, but I’ll make it work. I have terrible balance.. holy crap.
Now its time to do some yoga!!
Anyone want to see a teaser of the lightsaber duel video I’m in?
So, This weekend, I had a great one, I went to Chicago to visit Ev, as always the 6 hour drive sucks . We did nothing but cuddle when I got there, Saturday, we went to a Pancake house for breakfast :3, Cafe 14 in Palatine. Later we went to a comic book shop, with a cute girl there I talked to her for like 20 minutes about Doctor Who. That evening we went to the Casino and ate at Flip’t, drank at Hugo’s Frog Bar and Chop House (Best Tom Collins I’ve yet to have) They had a live piano player (as opposed to a dead one :P ) We sat at the piano and made friends with the guy playing and he even sang me Happy Birthday! We got very drunk, it was a great night, They make their Drinks strong in the Windy City. Sunday was another laid back day, we got Steak and Shake for lunch and then cuddled until about 7 in the evening when I got my ass on the road. I didn’t get home until after 1am, but it was worth it. :)
I need to find myself a lovely cuddle buddy girl up here in the UP.
Its going to be my Birthday in 2 hours. And I’m all alones. :( Meh.

Once I get some more cash I will be able to have something other than pasta for lunch. :D Pretty good for being on a grocery budget of $12. and working with what I have at home.
I worked my ass off today :D I ran 2 miles on the elliptical in 18:50. A new personal record for me. And then did another 1/3 mile cool down. Afterwards My friend and I did some ab stuff for about 15 minutes and then we stretched.
So today, I decided to check out “bodyrock.tv’s” new thing, the daily hiit.
Let me give you some background. I started off with bodyrock about 2 years ago. I ended up making a bunch of progress. But then, they turned into drama central. With Zuzana leaving and the new host. It was kind of a mess in my opinion. (P.S. I love Zuzana;s new thing! I am going to buy her DVD set when I have the extra cash)
Anyway, I found the new host to be kind of annoying, and it seemed like bodyrock was pushing to get people to buy equipment. The camera angles were annoying and I couldn’t follow along at all. So I stopped and got a gym membership, ran a 5k and followed Zuzana’s ZWOW’s when they started.
I still check and see what kind of things they do now. They have updated a whole bunch of things and now they are called the Daily Hiit. The names are toned down just a teeny bit from the racy sexual names they used to use for their workouts. I have only watched a few videos but they seem to be doing better at showing what exactly you are supposed to do. And there is a lot less nonsense. Yes they are still pushing for equipment, but usually I can figure out a way to use things I already have.
Today I did this one: http://www.dailyhiit.com/videos/breakdown/cuter-butt-hiitmax-4
I used a 5 lb dumbell for a few of the exercises and I also used my 10lb kettle bell for some.
It was pretty awesome and I will be checking back from time to time. I still like the ZWOW’s better.
