Shoot Me Now

This morning I woke up with this weird feeling in my abdomen, it sort of felt like cramps but I know that couldn’t be it because I had those a week ago. Well, the cramping kept getting worse and worse, so I decided I better stay home because I wasn’t sure the cause of it or how bad these pains were going to get. And then it hit me, the pain was exactly what I experienced when I had kidney stones in November through March.

So, I trucked myself to Wally World, bought 200 capsules of Ibuprofen and came home, popped four of them, grabbed my heating pad and then I googled “home remedies for kidney stones” while I drank my water.

That is what they suggested. Mix 2oz of Lemon Juice + 2oz of Olive Oil into a cup, chug it and then drink 40oz of water. This is what I have noticed… it has been about an hour and the pain has subsided. A+! The taste… F-.

Summer Is Half Over!

I feel quite odd that it is July 12th, meaning that summer is halfway over and I don’t have school to worry about in the fall. It’s almost like a dooms day feeling really. Maybe the fact that I hate my job has a huge part of it. I have been working there since April 2007, and I was promoted to my current position in September 2007. The fact that I am still not in the management really pisses me off because I freaking tell people where to go, what to do, etc. more often then 75% of the managers. In fact, I almost always have to tell the managers what to do! I tried stop being such a leader but apparently it’s not something I can just not do because it lasts for like 15 minutes.

Whenever I have my 6 month review, which basically is where they give you your raise (10 cents, woo hoo) I am going to ask why the heck I haven’t been promoted. Even if it just pushes me to $1 more then what I make now, its still a big enough difference and I have been there long enough, people already ask me what to do, I run the store when the managers are having meetings, etc. There is NO REASON WHAT SO EVER for me to NOT get promoted. It pisses me off, SO MUCH.

On another note, I wish I could rewind time to back in 2003 and redo my whole college experience. I would have cracked down on myself a lot more then I did, I wouldn’t have let stupid boyfriends talk me into skipping class, etc. Actually I’d probably make it so I wouldn’t have dated two of those guys… period. But that is a whole different rant for a whole different time. I would have stuck with Communications – Graphic Design, maybe a dual major with  Business as the other major with an emphasis in Marketing. PERFECT.

Actually my dream job would be to work for something in the Thoroughbred Racing area… but whatever, doubt that that will ever happen but I am keeping my eyes open for opportunities.

OH! And on a random note.. I got hit on by a cute guy for the first time in a long ass time yesterday when I went to eat at HuHot’s. It made my day 🙂

Lazy Sunday

Today is one of those days. I don’t feel like doing anything but I know I have to. Especially considering that I work a billion hours next week with craptastic hours of 11am-8pm. Doesn’t really give much time to do anything else, now does it. I wish I was my cat, he has quite the life… just sitting around, basking in the sun and watching birds all day long. He needs to learn how to clean.

Not My Cup of Tea

So, the week after I graduated I told myself that I was going to use my new found free time to get in shape, lose weight, etc. I figured since I have all this time on my hands now and am bored to tears, I can easily squeeze in a 45 minute workout. Let me tell you something about me and my workout skills… they suck. I swear on everything that I have zero motivation/drive/willpower when it comes to working out. I have so many different workout DVD programs, at home equipment, etc. that its really sort of sad. If I used all the crap that I had religiously I’d probably be a size zero right now, or at least closer to my goal weight. Hmmm… I also should probably stop eating crap food all the time. That also seems to be a big issue with me. Alright so back to the purpose of this post…

I decided to try the Beach Body program, Slim in 6. I figured I can totally workout for 6 weeks and if the program is as amazing as it says it is, I should look fantabulous in six weeks! HA. Okay so, the first week wasn’t to bad. I did the beginner DVD for the full week and took the one day off like it t

old me to do. I lost .5 inches from my arms, 2 inches from my boobs, 1 inch from my waist, 1 inch from my hips, 1 inch from my thighs, and 1.5 inche

s from my calves… but I gained .5lbs. I was all excited and pumped up, however, after that one day break it was so hard to get back into it. Oh my gosh, I am struggling so bad. The second week DVD is 50 minutes long and after the warmup, my legs and arms are super tired. I dunno if its because its like 900*F in my apartment, or what, but I get super tired and am all ‘ew’ after 4 minutes. Sometimes I make it to 20 minutes before I get all ew. Im not losing weight either, I’m gaining it! That is totally unmotivating me. Ugh. And Im trying to eat better but the more I work out, the hungrier I am and then I just want to chow down on everything. My brain is broken, I believe.

So last night I decided that maybe my problem is that I am working out at night and I should be doing it in the morning. Yea, that lasted two minutes. This morning I got up at 6am, threw on my yoga pants and my tank top/sports bra thing and got to business… which closed down in 5 minutes. How do people workout in the morning?! I thought it was supposed to wake you up and make you feel alive and refreshed, full of energy, etc. All it did for me was make me want to crawl back into bed and sleep. My legs screamed at me to stop torturing them within 2 minutes of warming up. Oi. Fail.
