Day three on the Precor went much better than yesterday. But then again I WAS in Greensboro the night before and awake until 3:30 in the morning (which I never do anymore)… Still sticking with my “start slow/build endurance” speed, and incline intervals.
Warm up with a 3-minute walk at a 3.2-3.5 speed, and jog/run for 3 minutes between 4.5-5.0. Then comes the 4.5 incline, which makes it a little tougher, but not too bad, so I’m thinking I’m gonna have to kick that up a notch so I’ll be forced to work harder to get in shape faster. And then repeat for about 33 minutes.
I’m just so thrilled that I got this super nice treadmill for Christmas. I’m not gonna let it be a waste of money. I pretty much stopped doing any type of working out except for Zumba and the occasional Billy Blanks video, so I’m feeling really motivated for once. Being on my feet for 6+ hours a day at work, and running all over the place to answer questions really wears me down… Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up the pace.
And now for the hard part. If I’m gonna be REALLY committed to this, it’s time I stop drinking any type of soda (even diet!) and turn away from the sweet tea that is always in our fridge. Doing away with the high calorie drinks will be the worst part, because I hate water. Good thing I’ve got my trusty Bobble! :)
At the end of the movie when this song starts playing and Landon is looking up at the sky and smiling, your eyes evolve into thunderclouds and you start bawling like the North Koreans after the death of Kim Jong-il. Yes, I just watched this movie for the third time in 24 hours. Deal with it. It’s amazing.
“I don’t feel like I’m mad most of the time, but it isn’t hard to let all that stored anger come rippling out. I should get help. But it’s hard to talk about resentment, bottled up inside. I have it easier than most people. So why feel sorry for myself? Not like very many people have intact families. One parent or the other is likely absent. Shacked up. Knocked up. Fucked up. Looking at it that way, I’m pretty normal. So why do I feel like some sort of a freak? Bigger question: Why take it out on people I love?”—Fallout - Ellen Hopkins
I had to babysit my little sisters while my parents went to a cocktail party, so we watched Space Jam, and A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song. I was surprised how much I liked Cinderella! I mostly bought it because it was only $3.99 at Best Buy today and I met Lucy Hale & Megan Park when they were filming it in Wilmington last February. But I’d definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of Cinderella stories! I’ve always been a sucker for them… First the Disney Cinderella, obviously. Then Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella (with Brandy), Ever After (Drew Barrymore), and A Cinderella Story (Hilary Duff, Chad Michael Murray).
Now time to (hopefully) knock out the last several episodes of Bones, season 6!
