Weekly Weigh In
Feb 9th, 2009 by Babs

Woot! Down almost half a pound! I’m starting to head the other way again!

I got most of my scheduled workouts in last week. I had to omit one cardio due to Ben and tribe having half a day (I did try to arrange it so I could workout before they arrived home but , ya know, shit happens.  I was also forced to omit one strength training because I was just too damn sore! I still managed to squeak in 2 hours of aerobic activity along with 5 sets with the weights, though. So I’m definately improving. Now I just need to convince my body fat that it can go. I’m at 33.3%

Weekly Weigh In (and Other Drama)
Feb 3rd, 2009 by Babs

Today’s post is being brought to you by the following search terms: babs,  babs sex,  sex babs,  drum corps torrents,  chris young torrents.

One of these days I’m going actually do this weekly AND on Monday. *laughs*

I’ve gained another pound. :P So yesterday I announced to the household that I would no longer put my exercise routine second to anyone else’s plans. This totally pissed off Glenn. He took off both yesterday and today, with a long list of things to do. Yesterday he said he was going to run an errand, before we ran out to pick up some things, and I could use the living room to workout while he was gone (how gracious of him *rolls eyes*). Then he left — without a word and with the TV still on so I thought he was coming right back. After about half an hour I realize he’d gone to do whatever he was going to do, so I proceeded with my workout. Shortly thereafter he returns with “You’re not done, yet?” Come to find out he hadn’t run the errand, but was helping a neighbor move into her new apartment, instead. I tell him I have about another half an hour to go, so he leaves again. This time for an hour. Still helping the neighbor. Now, on top of this, he wanted to shave his head before we left, which he could’ve done while I was exercising. But he didn’t. Yet somehow I’m the one wasting his time.

Today was more of the same. “We need to get out and do things before the weather gets bad,” he says. As this was early in the morning and the worst of the weather wasn’t due untill this afternoon, I wasn’t in any hurry. In fact I quoted his favorite mantra, “I’m not killing myself for anyone.” His response: “Fine! We just won’t do anything, then.”

Fine. At least I know I have three less obstacles to achieving my fitness goal.

Today’s post has been brought to you by the following search terms *laughs*: emile hirsch,  omnommonster,  “emile hirsch” -boxxet,  babs,  code pink fuck the troops.

*groans* Yes. I DID gain, like, three pounds. I can only hope it’s due to my regaining some muscle, and not my snickerdoodle binge. And my pizza binge. And my…

I did get in almost two hours of cardio this past week, though, so I am improving. I wish I knew what it is that is making me so disinterested in working out. I used to have no problem. In fact I even looked forward to it. Nowadays I feel like I’m searching for reasons to get out of it. :P Must. Get. Back. On. Track! Once I can accomplish that I should start to feel easily motivated again.

I’ve Been a Bad, Bad, Girl.
Jan 16th, 2009 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">I've Been a Bad, Bad, Girl.</div>

For starters, I forgot to post this week’s weigh in. Given that I gained 2 pounds this may not be a bad thing. *sheepish grin* I did get a couple hours of cardio in this week, though, so all is not lost.

I managed to go from 7am yesterday to 5pm today without a cigarette, thanks to aromatherapy and nicotine gum. I caved after that. The stress of dealing with Glenn and the boys has been too much. On the semi-positive side the few cigs I did smoke today tasted NASTY, so I will be making another attempt to quit ASAP. I’m amazed I managed to last as long as I did. Last night I was so tense! For the last couple of nights Glenn has been so drunk that he snores. LOUDLY. So fucking loud that I can have my Sansa up high enough to hurt my ears and I can still hear him! And any attempt to roll him over results in failure. He is so lucky I didn’t take advantage of his pillow laying beside him last night ’cause, trust me, I probably could’ve pulled off the “temporary insanity thing”.

In other news the preteen, who refuses to brush his teeth, lost two of them in the course of a week. Because the Town refuses to pay for dental insurance we have no way of telling if they were baby teeth coming out late. I’m thinking “no”. The loss of one of them isn’t too bad, however, as it was one of the same two teeth I had to have pulled to make way for my “fangs” which the preteen has inherited. One is growning in the spot where one tooth fell out (hell, it might have even pushed it out), the other is coming in above and behind the tooth it should be in front of. *headdesk*

Wednesday night was the first practice of Bay State Sound, the corps that has risen out of the ashes of the Light Brigade. Most folks were expecting some reunion time after two months vacation but Bill, the owner/manager/etc. insisted both the horn and drum lines commence to learn the new program. The colorguard went downstairs and discussed what we would do if BSS doesn’t show some true signs of life within the next few months. It was decided that if the corps. failed we’d go, as a group, to the Holy Defenders. Well, a group minus one. The Holy Defenders are in Rockland, home of the secret lover Glenn insists I have, so I can’t go. This means if Bay State Sound doesn’t take off I have to choose between either being a traitor by joining the Boston Crusaders, or not being in a colorguard at all. :(

Inbetween all of this I’ve been busy crocheting, Simming and watching DVDs. I’ve managed to create a handful of scarves that I hope to unload on Etsy. I’m so loving the good and bad witches in “Apartment Life” but fear that I will not “complete” the game within my lifetime, even with all the dumbasses setting fire to themselves. I can’t get enough of the director/cast commentary for “The Lords of Dogtown” so I checked out Best Buy to see if they had a copy, cheap. They had a copy labeled $9.99, which wasn’t bad. Even better was when it rang up for $5.99!

*pulls a snickerdoodle from my secret stash* Shh! These things are delicious! I refuse to share them with the boys.

Weekly Weigh In
Jan 7th, 2009 by Babs

Okay. It’s the first weigh in of the year and I’m two days late. *sheepish grin* At least I can say I dropped a pound and a half. Down to 163. Since my electronic body fat monitor is showing a body fat percentage of 29.7% at “athletic” and 32.7% for “normal”, I dug out my tape measure and performed Covert Bailey’s test which came up with 31.8%. So, at least for the next month, I will be using the “normal” setting on my electronic doohickey, for quick reference. I also discovered that I’ve lost some lean (like I didn’t see that coming), so my weight loss goal has been lowered to 142.6. :P

I’m still trying to work in my workout schedule. It’s not that I’m being lazy. It’s just that whenever I want the room to exercise, someone else always has it. If it were just the preteen I’d kick him out, but it’s usually either Ben and his tribe, or Glenn. And Gods know that Glenn can’t possibly find something else to do for an hour. *rolls eyes*

Stop & Shop has Lean Cuisine on sale this week so I stocked up, big time. They’re great to have on hand when I’m hungry and I don’t have time to prepare “real food”. I absolutely LOVE their Santa Fe Beans and Rice dish! Sadly, S&S didn’t have many of them on hand  this week. I guess others have made the same discovery.

Prevention Magazine has been full of fail the last few months. So much so that I’ll probably check next month’s issue out of the library, instead of purchasing it. I was pissed to learn that they axed their “to-do” list back in the December issue, which was way better than the table of contents, IMHO. They raised the price, too. At least I’m set for a workout schedule until the first week in April. Woot!
