One of those days

Ever had one of those days where everything you do or touch gets fucked up.Β  That is me today πŸ™‚

I can’t get my pc to do a zip file, I can’t load my website to submit my assignment, I can’t log into a site I wanted to get into, I spilt coffee all over myself, someone (who shall remain nameless) put the pegs on top of the washing machine so whilst on the spin cycle they went everywhere, i created a new email for job hunting and couldn’t get that set up on my phone and well many other things today happened.

Hubby has been telling me to calm down all day and so far it has just not worked.

So I cracked the shits and went for a workout, thought maybe some exercise might help release some happy high….found out all the songs on my iphone have been wiped at some point, so went to plug it back in but my computers won’t connect with Synergy so I can’t access my Itunes to update it.

Almost threw my phone and decided to stream radio – except they streamed nothing but advertisements for the 5 minutes I was jogging, so I stopped jogging and turned my phone off.Β  I continued my workout in silence.

I am waiting for the high to kick in but I actually have a headache now and I am wondering if I am dehydrated.Β  So I will be going to grab my water bottle when i finish this post and I will drink as much of that as I can πŸ˜€

Yup – ONE OF THOSE DAYS!!!!

And then I nearly posted this to my gaming blog!!!!Β  AARRGGGHHHH!!!!

My exercise room and stuff

At the top in my menu bar you will see “Tracking”Β  this will take you to my exercise tracking blog.Β  The only thing that is going to be on there is my exercise and weightloss, so kind of boring for anyone not interested, which is why I created a separate area for it.Β  I didn’t want to bore people here πŸ˜€Β  So feel free to drop past and check it out πŸ˜€

Also here are some piccies of my exercise room, it is a little bland as I said, I have to get the speakers hooked up and I need to get my fan back in there.Β  Yes I am aware the ironing board is probably not the most useful piece of exercise equipment but it does a bloody good job of holding the dumbells πŸ˜€

The above is the sign I have on my door πŸ™‚

As you walk into the room, bad shot I know but I am not very good with room images πŸ˜€

Thats my stepper on the floor, it has 3 different levels of difficulty, so far I am only going to do it on the lowest level as I am finding that hard enough πŸ˜€ Dumbells on the ironing board, it’s just a perfect solution to not having them on the floor!!

This is on the wardrobe door, it is my chart which I write everything down on so I can track what I am doing!

 

Missed a couple of exercise days

Yes I missed a couple of days due to my leg pain.Β  I did some research into the muscle pain you suffer and most people said to rest the area for a couple of days as you want the muscle to heal, this is what helps build stronger muscles.Β  If you continue to just tear them down (hence the pain) you will find they eventually wither away and become smaller……soo….that worried me πŸ™‚Β  Anyway I then missed time due to Xmas which I think is fairly understandable πŸ˜€Β  However I got back into this morning, and I am going to push myself even harder in the next few weeks.

Also a funny thing, I had my scales in my workout room with me so I could weigh myself at the end of every week…..yeah….apparently carpet is not a good surface πŸ™‚Β  It added an extra 10-15 kg’s to my actual weight…not that it matters as potentially I will be losing weight so it doesn’t matter what my start weight is…however – it does matter if it isn’t reading accurately.Β  So I have moved into it the bathroom.Β  I actually need to correct my starting weight on my sheets, i might do that after I post this up πŸ˜€

I am also going to take some pictures of my workout room to share, so you can all see how wonderful and bland it is!!Β  I need to get some motivational posters on the walls πŸ˜€Β  I might even do a collage of dresses/clothes/people/body shapes as well and help me focus on my goal πŸ˜€

So anyway Christmas was good.Β  My mum came up to spend the day with us, so I hope that cheered her up a little bit with the recent denial of her spouse visa she has not been dealing very well with everything.Β  WeΒ  had hubby’s mum down as well.Β  I bought Prawns!!!Β  YUMMOOOO!!Β  Stuffed myself silly to be honest, but you know it is the only day I actually by prawns, so I do go nuts πŸ˜€Β  We also had turkey and ham and roast veggies and then for desert we have hedgehog and fruit cake.Β  But I only had a small piece of each as I was conscious of the fact I had stuffed prawns in and I haven’t done any exercise!!Β  LOL

So today we are heading to a friends place for our normal boxing day drinking session.Β  Nothing major just sitting out talking, eating and drinking, it is always a nice day.

Hubby just showed me a few new exercise, which I am going to have to remember to do each day as well now.Β  Yes my plan is to do exercise every single day!!

I have to go and check on the silverside I have cooking, so I hope you all had lovely days yesterday and that Santa was good to you.Β  My Santa got lost in the USA somewhere and so none of our presents are actually here yet πŸ˜€Β  We are following them on tracking and they apparently are in melbourne……..just….not with us…..perhaps next week?Β  heheeh

Hugs and kisses to you all!!

 

Fail, fail and more fail!

Fail day today, idiots everywhere and people making my life difficult….just one of those days….

I did no exercise yesterday as my legs a re too sore and I really should give them time to heal, I will do my weights and push ups today and maybe start some sit ups, but I want to give my poor legs a rest….

I am grumpy and in need of chocolate….Mr Grumpy might be getting close………

 

Xmas, Uni and all that other stuff

I am loving the lack of heat we are experiencing….all this rain is wonderful!Β  So finally decided to contact hubby’s mum, she isn’t coming down for Xmas as she has a specialist appointment the day before.

I then rang my mother, who is trying to decide what she wants to do for Xmas, so I will confirm with her closer to the date.Β  Hubby is on call for Xmas which meanss he can’t leave the house and we can’t really have too much noise etc incase he needs to be on the phone.

So in preparation for the Xmas period we went “shopping” and didn’t have any luck with gifts….nothing we wanted to buy poeple was in stores…anywhere….was just horrible…so we may just have to resort to vouchers etc and hope people can deal with that πŸ˜€Β Β  Every year i say it, but next year – we are doing our Xmas shopping in October!!!Β  I SWEAR!!!!

My first assignment is almost complete and I am pretty proud of myself, I wonder if I can upload it somewhere πŸ™‚Β  It may not be the most awesome design attempt, but i think it is pretty cool πŸ™‚Β  I just have to make a few changes to the fonts and paragraphs and then validate the entire thing and hand it in!Β  It is due on the 9th Jan, but I am going to be in tassie then, so I want to get it completed and not have to worry about it πŸ™‚Β 

I also have my first test next week….the week of the 27th….so I have to start studying and making sure I have everything under control.Β  I am not entirely sure I do though, but we can only hope!!Β  This is the first test I will have taken in over 10 years so even if I barely pass I will happy with that….I have rom for improvement over the coming months….I am just freaking out that I am even doing a degree!!

My legs are killing me by the way, after doing those squats the other night I can barely move!!Β  But I did some weights etc last night as well after all the walking around doncaster yesterday….I jumped on the scales and I think I may have lost 1kg already…..I know it isn’t much, but 1kg is 1 kg LOSS!!!Β  So that has given me some motivation.Β  I am not going to be jumping on the scales everyday as I know weight fluctuates etc.Β  But to even see that after only a couple of days…well I got a massive motivational boost.Β 

I am thinking of attempting walking today, but it will depend on my legs in all honesty….hubby suggested I have a bath with bicarb soda to draw out the acis….still a possibility.

I do have to go to the post office again today and ask them about the second parcel seeing as how I never got a phone call from the distribution centre about it…..NOT happy JAN!!Β  I was thinking abotu walking down there, but my concern is if they find the package I have to walk back with it….which is not an exciting prospect πŸ˜€

Xmas shopping failure :D

We failed ay highpoint, heading to doncaster tomorrow.

On the upside, we picked up the new car and took it for a spin πŸ˜€Β  and spent most of the evening walking around highpoint, so that was at least some exercise AND i bought a stepper from rebel sport as that is part of the circuit I am doing.

I just finished some circuit work πŸ˜€Β  Heading to bed now…am exhausted@

another day

I just got back from my walk, I had to cut it slightly short as rain clouds were threatening. In fact, just as I left home I got a slight sprinkle but it didn’t get heavier so I soldiered on!

Managed 3 km’s today, although my left thigh muscle is hurting, I wonder if I walk lop sided? My back was starting to hurt towards the home stretch and that is because I slouch when i get tired. So I have to rememeber to keep my back straight and not crooked.

During me typing that last sentence the rain just started bucketing down, so I did make it home in the nick of time.

I am going to give myself a 20 minute break then I will go and do some weights and push ups, I don’t want to do too much to start with as it will mean I just get sore and then be uanble to continue. I am sure I am going to be even more sore tomorrow, but you do have to push through some pain πŸ˜€

I now have two walking paths which are approximately the same length and not too horrible to walk, I shall keep to these two and switch them up. Once I am more fit I will go in the other direction which involves a couple of large-ish hills…

I had some fruit and yoghurt for lunch as we are having a BBQ for dinner I didn’t want to have too much bad food in one day πŸ˜€

Anyway going to split and throw myself onto the couch…I don’t want to move πŸ˜€

Busy day today :D

I have lots to do today, not sure I am going to fit it all in πŸ˜€

I have to go to the post office and pickup two parcels, go to the butcher and grab some meat for the impromptu BBQ we are having tonight, stop past woolies and get some salad stuffs, go past the baker as well.

I then have to come home, clean the bathroom, vacuum (yes with out new shiny vacuum cleaner πŸ˜€ ehehhehe) and clean up the dining table as it is covered instuff….I may acyually have to dust the lounge as well, which I will do before I vacuum.

After all that is done, I want to go for a walk again today and get some exercise in, the walk yesterday only took an hour, I just have to get started πŸ˜€ Might clean the house now before the shops are open then I am mostly done. It’s all about time management yes? LOL

Here we go again :D

I have made one of our spare rooms into a workout room, complete wwith fan ans and will be moving the speakers for the stereo in there today. Am tossing up putting my treadmill in there when I get it….wondering if I have the motivation to be sure I exercise even if hubby ios watching tv etc.

Today I have done weights – will go back and do some more shortly, I have done about 3 minutes worth of skipping – I gave up since I can’t seem to skip anymore, the rope is too long and keeps kitting me….I could also just be retarded πŸ˜€

I have also just got back from a walk, I was aiming for 40 minutes and I pretty much nailed that to the minute. According to google maps I walked 2.24 miles – apparently 3.6km’s….I highly doubt that, but since I can’t seem to figure out how to change it to km’s AND make sure I am using the right tool, I will just wait until hubby calls me and I will ask him to work it out for me πŸ˜€

I am going to do some more study once I have done my weights, as I only have a couple of weeks left before my assignment is due and my first test is on. I really need to organise a student diary or something…might give RMIT a call and find out what the go is since techincally I am enrolled in one of their courses.

This time I am going to stick to a plan!! Hopefully I will be getting a treadmill next week, if all goes to plan, which means I can do more walking πŸ˜€ and maybe even some running :D….LOL yeah very little running! but running nontheless!

edited to add:
Yup, just figured it out and it was 3.6 km’s πŸ˜€ I am a lilttle chuffed with myself to be honest. If I can walk that every day and do my circuit course that I have planned I should be definitely able to go to Anberlin in March πŸ˜€

Think I just got screwed?

Was on the phone with hubby about some stuff just now, and I think I just got screwed….not sure….tell me what you think?

One of my favourite bands is Anberlin. Hubby says they are emo crap, but I love them, I think they are just my kind of rock πŸ˜€ Almost perfect in musical stylings. Anyway, they are coming to Melbourne in March next year. Hubby just made a deal with me, that I can buy tickets and he will come with me (“and enjoy it and shut up”), providing I am a size 18 by then. If I have not achieved that goal, we are going to get rid of the tickets……………..I just can’t understand that last sentence, it hurts my brain just thinking about it.

That’s almost like saying, here is a lovely, chocolately, cake, but if you so much as sniff it we are going to take it away from you…GAHHHHHH!!!!!!! So….size 18 by March here we come!!! I have to do this. I want to see Anberlin!! No I NEED TO SEE ANBERLIN!!

Onto other news, we are getting rid of the mini, although the hubby loves his car, it is costing us so much money to keep it on the road it is not very practical anymore. BMW/Mini service centres are kind of useless as well, but that is whole nother story, let’s just say when I am taking the car in to be serviced or looked at – I want a price beforehand so I know what to budget/plan for…..to be told “we can’t give you an estimate” makes me pretty uncomfortable and makes me wonder if they just make up prices once the service has been done to get the most money because no one knew what the cost would be going in….I also don’t like the idea of turning up to get the car and being told we need to pay thousands of dollars – I just don’t have that kind of money sitting around you know?…… We are getting a good trade in on it for a VW Golf, so we now have a second car loan for a very small amount, which when i get a new job we will be refinancing the house and combining the two.

I am not keen on having a second car loan, however it should, in theory, only be for a short while.

I have to shott off now and set up one of our spare rooms as a workout room now!! EEP!!
