Gym [Monday, November 10th, 2008 at 8:54 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | thirsty ]

Today is the first day I've been to the gym since Wednesday. I wasn't going to go today because I was feeling all tired and icky at around 4 pm, when I usually go. I came back to my room and laid down until dinner. Then after dinner I was feeling a lot better and more energized and I decided to go to the gym.

Holy crap. I'm so glad I went! Originally I was just going to do 35 minutes on the treadmill (25 running) and take it easy but I had so much energy that I was able to do my full 45 minutes. I did 4.23 miles (3.5 running!) in 45 minutes. I did a five minute warm up at 4.3 mph at a 5 incline, 35 minutes at 6 mph at a 1 incline, and a five minute cool down (two minutes 5 mph, one minute 4.5 mph, two minutes 4 mph at no incline).

I was able to sustain not only running at 6 mph the whole time, but I was also able to do it at a 1 incline, when normally I do .5 incline or split up the running between a 1 and a .5 incline. Yay! After a couple of weeks of sustaining that I can start to up my running speed. I hope to sustain 6.1-6.3 mph by winter break, if possible, and then maybe 7 mph by the end of spring semester (?). In July when I started running consistently, 5 mph for 12 minutes killed me, and now I can run 6 mph for 35 minutes. I've come a long way.

I also did pretty well with eating today. Breakfast was a small coffee with half and half and Splenda as well as a Peanut Crunch Odwalla bar. For lunch I had half a turkey wrap, some Honey Nut Cheerios, a handful of tater tots, and a bowl of grapes/canteloupe slices/pineapple slices. Oh, and I had cake. For dinner I made myself turkey parmesan (lightly breaded turkey cutlet, marinara sauce, and a slice of provolone cheese microwaved) and a salad and that was it. Of course I overdid it on the cereal right before dinner (thus proving I cannot have cereal in my room; when will I learn?) and I had a mini Snickers and a Reese's cup, and a couple of handfuls of pretzels at the library but I don't feel quite so guilty because I went to the gym and I estimate that I burned at least 375 calories.

I'm terrified of gaining weight between now and the wedding because of my dress. I don't want to drop to 140 either (which, theoretically could happen if I dropped a pound a week between now and the wedding), because then the dress will be huge on me. I don't want to lose more than five pounds before the wedding. Once spring semester starts, then I'll get really serious about reaching my ultimate goal of 130-135.

Running [Thursday, October 30th, 2008 at 3:44 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | stressed ]

Today was the best day I've ever had for running so far. I did 45 minutes on the treadmill for a total of 4.1 miles (ran 3.4 of those miles!). I started out with a five minute warm up at 4.3 mph at a 5 incline, then ten minutes at 6 mph at a 1 incline, then a total of 12 minutes at 6 mph at a .5 incline (20 minutes straight 6 mph, then two minutes 6 mph at the end), 13 minutes of 5.5 mph at a .5 incline, then a five minute cool down (two minutes 4.7 mph, one minute 4.2 mph, two minutes 4 mph at no incline). So I probably burned around 365 calories.

Now I'm craving chocolate like mad and stressing like hell over this paper. It's my own fault, really. I had over two weeks to do it and now, 24 hours before it's due, I'm just starting on it. lol. I don't think the part where I need to describe the two theories will be hard; the hard part will be applying the two theories. Crap.

I'm going to tag anyone who wants to do this. :-p

Today was crazy for running. I did 45 minutes total (4.05 miles, 3.35 of that was straight running) on the treadmill: five minutes warm up at 4.2 mph at a 5 incline, 20 minutes at 6 mph at a .5 incline (felt like I was going to die... going right after lunch = BAD IDEA!), 15 minutes at 5.4 mph at a .5 incline, five minutes cool down (two minutes 4.7 mph and three minutes 4 mph no incline). Now I'm beat from that.

Off to Health Services!

Quizzes because I'm bored to tears at work [Thursday, October 9th, 2008 at 11:13 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | discontent ]

Quiz timeCollapse )


I don't know why I get irrationally upset over the dumbest little things. I can't help it. I guess the fact that I am PMSing has something to do with it though. All I want to do is hang out in my room, in bed, watch movies, and eat. I especially want to eat. I am having a pretty bad case of the munchies. I hope my willpower is strong enough that I won't go back to my room and munch on everything in sight. *sigh*

Stolen from presently.

Dear dirtyfight:

I don't know how to tell you this, but I'll join the monastery. I think I realized it that night in your camping car and I saw you carve your initials into my avocado plant. I'm sure you're frostbitten enough to understand how awful I've felt. I'm returning your ring to you, but I'll keep your suicide note as a memory. You should also know that I never will forget eggplant-fetishism.

Good luck on your short-term leave from jail,
mares

I'm gonna turn this thing around [Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008 at 6:52 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | working ]

I am so beat from my work out today. I did 45 minutes on the treadmill as usual. I did five minutes at 4.2 mph at a 5 incline for a warm up, 35 minutes at 5.4 mph at a .5 incline, two minutes at 4.5 mph at no incline, and three minutes at 3.9 mph at no incline (five minutes cool down). My legs are telling me they're not happy with me. lol. I was going to do legs and abs strength training tomorrow but we'll see how I feel.

I ordered a class ring yesterday. I just realized that my ring will be in Slytherin colors (for all the HP nerds on my friends list): silver and green. Well it's actually 10 carat white gold and an emerald stone. I could have gotten my birthstone but I wanted to get a stone that was a school color. Drew's colors are blue and green, but originally they were green and gold, so I went with green since it's always been a Drew color.

I could only have one of my majors on my ring so I picked English because I feel more a part of the English department than I do with Psychology. I'm closer to more professors in the English department than I am in the Psychology department. If I do an honors thesis it will be an English honors thesis. Plus English was always my major; Psych is something I just tacked on because I happened to like it and I wanted to get two degrees for the price of one. I also opted to get my first name, middle initial, and last name engraved into the inside of the ring. It's gonna be pretty sweet. Too bad it was so expensive, lol.

There is now finally glass in my mailbox. It's about damn time. Predictably, the job was half-assed and it looks like shit and it's like only partially glued on. Oh, Drew.

How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a New Left Hipster, also known as a MoveOn.org liberal, a Netroots activist, or a Daily Show fanatic. You believe that if we really want to defend American values, conservatives must be exposed, mocked, and assailed for every fanatical, puritanical, warmongering, Constitution-shredding ideal for which they stand.



Even though I do resent being called a hipster.

On the subject of matrimony... [Wednesday, June 25th, 2008 at 10:56 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | sleepy ]

"Without offence to the present company, I am rather inclined to look upon matrimony as a weakness to which some very worthy people are prone; but if they must be married, let them make the best of it, and go through the affair with dignity and propriety: or if there are misdoings and clandestine meetings, and such things, at any rate, never let me hear about them! ... You'll excuse my frankness on the subject of matrimony! Mrs. Goodenough there can tell you I'm a very outspoken person."

Placebo on mainstream tv! [Friday, November 9th, 2007 at 10:10 pm Eastern Standard Time]
[ mood | excited ]

Infra-Red came on at the beginning of Numb3rs. "Someone call the ambulance" was the line that played just before the guy fell off the roof of the building.

Yes, that's a Placebo song, and Numb3rs is a show my grandparents watch. Shit, they heard my music on a mainstream show!

I sporadically watch Numb3rs because it comes on at 10 pm on Fridays. However, I'm glad I caught it tonight.

That's all. It seemed like an event worth noting.
