Workout Queen

Today - I chose to believe that I am a rockstar with my workouts. I did a 43 minute step routine, a ten minute boxing routine, 2 minutes of jogging, and 5 minutes of hula hooping. For the step routine, I tried something new - well new to me while doing Wii Fit - I strapped on my Ipod and went to town.

Can I just say that the set list on my Ipod cracks me up... I started out listening to Young MC (Busta Move), then moved to some Brad Paisley (Celebrity), David Crowder Band (Come Thou Fount), Ann Murray (Could I Have this Dance), Chris LeDoux (County Fair), New Kids (Cover Girl), and finished up with Gnarls Barkley (Crazy) - so basically I covered old school hip hop, old school pop, old country, christian, and finally new hip hop. Hysterical! But it got me through 5,000 steps in 40 minutes!!

I think I'm about to spring a chick flick on John for tonight - I've watched to many sporting events lately, and still haven't gotten to watch any of my movies that I bought. So... tonight is my night... I'm watching 27 Dresses if I have to stay up and watch it after he's gone to bed! Ok, not really because I've got to get my act together in the morning. I've got to workout, prepare for my interview, and get all my stuff together for craft night at church. I want to get my stuff at least semi-prepared so that I will be productive while I'm there with the other crafty ladies!

I did hear back from the people that I interviewed with on Tuesday, and the telecommuting thing was a no-go for them. That's cool though - at least I gave it my all and I think God really didn't think that should be my fit for right now. The experience of meeting them was enough for me at this point, and I'll continue to be faithful and pray for God to show me where I need to be to serve him best.

I'm so irritated with my body right now - even with all this working out and everything - I seem to be packing on the pounds. Now, rationally - I know that it's not humanly possible to gain 5 pounds in two days when you can't eat more than 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of food in one sitting... but it's still frustrating. I'm going to try to continue to be faithful in this as well, but I can certainly say that it's taking more of a toll on my emotions than the job mess is at this point. (Maybe because I know that John is worried enough for the both of us on the job front.)

I did some sewing today - I had to sew a button on a shirt for John, but while I was at it - I played hospital to a lot of the dog's toys... it was hysterical... I had them all lined up and at one point my Lab, Maggie, got so frustrated waiting on me - she stole one of the toys out of my lap while I was threading my needle! Silly girl! My little one, Missy, just sat there staring at me and whining... I worked for about an hour, but I got the shirt and 4 of the girls' favorite toys fixed up.

The ants are still hanging out trying to take over the house - I can't wait until next Wednesday when they will meet their maker... I know that might be wrong, but seriously - poor John was sitting in the chair just a little while ago and saw one crawling across his chest... I suspect that it was in his shorts that he wears when he's just lounging around the house - because they tend to be thrown on the floor when he gets dressed in the morning... but still it stinks to almost be bitten by an ant when you're trying to play Mario Cart on Wii. HA!


  1. I'm thinking of logging my food intake even though the thought of it makes me shudder. Is this something you do? Not sure if it would help you or not but you sure are doing amazing things with the working out!

  2. Awesome! You are a rock-star. Thinkin' about he MS150 next year? LOL

    Also, with the exercise your body is adjusting. Remember, we eat so little, that when we exercise vigorously, we create a huge deficit. Sometimes it takes the body a little while to "release". Be sure to eat every 3 to 4 hours, so your body knows you're not starving it. Once it relaizes "yeah, I'm gonna get food" it will be more prone to relinquishing the pounds.

  3. Maybe you're just beefing up your muscles and since muscle mass is so much denser than fat...voila you're losing fat without really losing lb's.

    I'll see you later tonight at the craft thingy...I probably am just going to come and say hi, since I have nothing to work on.


  4. It sounds like the Wii Fit is a success. You go girl. I so miss working out. And I love the music selection. Keep it up!

  5. I'm so behind on blog reading I just read this today. I cannot BELIEVE your Wii workouts... holy cow!!
