woah nelly!

i've been absent. sorry. i'm not sure why, but i keep thinking of the blog... but not actually writing on it or reading other blogs for that matter. i had a ruff 2 weeks in which i just kept at the same weight and it started to irk me. i finally saw a little progress, so hope is not lost! i guess that probably attributed to the blogless few weeks, but really i'm just kinda blah lately.

not much else besides my plans for next weekend... it's cabin weekend! which means a bunch of friends meet at a cabin to celebrate one friend's bday... much food, alcohol and fun is had. i'm really not worried about it, it's at a house so i can bring whatever i want in addition to the meals we are making as pairs and it's gonna be a much needed break from monotony.

i'm so sorry that i haven't been around at least commenting on your blogs... i hate that i can read at work, but can't comment! boooo. i send my love to you all!!

it's st. patrick's day! for the past four years, i've spent this day in a drunken stuper dressed head to toe in green.

now that i'm not living in madison and working full-time, that's probably a thing of the past... until it falls on a vacation day or weekend... then i might just be obligated.

this year though, i'm gonna go to the y after work, eat a sensible dinner, catch up on some blog readings, watch some 30 rock and catch some zs. a relaxing evening, but i can't help but hear the little voice in my head quote avenue q... "i wish i could go back to college". :)

on the weight loss front... not much, still chuggin' away but not seeing as much progress as i'd like. i know it will slow down, but i don't want it to yet! lol. when the losses are slow, it makes it that much more difficult to stay on track... "if i'm not losing i might as well not exercise today" or "if i'm not losing i might as well have this s/f chocolate". it's hard...

it makes me think of how proud my grandma says she is of me for losing weight... and how everytime i just brush it off (partly because i don't like being pointed out and because sometimes i like to pretend i never was that big), but really it's an accomplishment. i hope looking at it that way will keep me on the straight and narrow plan wise.

to a healthy week!

a smidge of happiness

weigh in: 202.8!! you better stick biotch!

happy saturday everyone!

you know what's especially not fun... buying new, smaller bras. i'm gonna have to do that today, i'm thinking i'll just be going down in the band size... i hope. i wanna be like "weight loss gods no, i want those!" i already had to purchase new bras once in this process and the cups happily remained the same. when i started using the smallest hooks on my bras i felt soo weird. i've always had to use the last hook on any bra i've ever owned.

well, if it gets me a smaller, healthier body overall, i can handle
missing a little boob. :)

awake, i think

last night was fun, the concert was so so. i cannot stand it when an artist feels the need to mouth repeatedly to the sound guy or make jerky faces at him, that's what a sound check is for people! especially when it's not a noticeable error for the audiences enjoyment, just get over yourself and play the song. this is one of very few concerts this has happened at, but man was it off putting. i'm fine with a little interaction, like turn up my guitar or turn down the vocals, but the interaction was nothing less than redonk last night. it's hard to get that "dang you are a prick" thought out of your head, hahaha. the music was enjoyable, so i'll try and forget the unpleasantries.

i had a great time seeing friends and catching up before and after the concert. i was very conservative alcohol wise, but the drink i had tasted crazy strong. my tolerance level is drastically lower than last summer. that's a good thing :) i'm a cheaper date, lol.

i'm trying not to think about it, but i only got 3 hours and 40 minutes of sleep last night. maybe i won't pass out on my keyboard later this morning if i pretend i actually slept. i know from past experience i go along smoothly for a little while and then hit a brick wall something fierce.

it's supposed to be in the 60s again today! i might venture on a walk/jog by the lake after work (again if i'm not asleep, lol). i'll have to take advantage of the warm weather somehow, the forecast is for 30s again tomorrow.

i'll weigh in tomorrow.

shakin' booty

second day in a row was a little ruff, but i survived and successfully completed my planned workout. i remembered to make lunch for today! yay chicken and green beans!

i also realized that i'm going to madison thursday night right after work, soooo i can't workout that day (unless i go insane and get up at 5am to go before work). i will most likely partake in some alcoholic beverages that evening... so i will make tonight's workout extra rigorous :)

these go to eleven

AAAAAHH!!! i just found out that SPINAL TAP (christpher guest, harry shearer and micheal mckean) is coming to milwaukee in May!! thank you reunion tour gods!

it's acoustic, so it won't be the concert of my spinal tap dreams, but AAAH! whenever anyone asks what my favorite movie is i say it's a tie between spinal tap and amadeus.

in my dreams christopher guest will at some point do his corky st. clair voice at the concert. now to get tickets... i guess the presale starts tomorrow. AAAAAAAAAAAAH!

one down

i successfully made it to the y after work yesterday, 30 minutes elliptical, 20 upper body weights. it was a ruff monday and getting there was a little victory.

my lunch today is hilarious... i had no time this morning and forgot to prepare something last night... so i have the 4 brussel sprouts that were left plus a cup of frozen grean beans in a container and then i have about a cup of fage yogurt w/ a little sweetner and pumpkin pie spice mixed in. doh! i'll make sure to cook some chicken for the rest of this week's lunches tonight.

shout by tears for fears is playing on my mp3 player right now. haha.

self challenge

this week i am challenging myself to go the y everyday. i will do cardio and weights each day, alternating upper and lower body on the weights. i will report here each day.

this week is mine to make great.
