I’ve seen better days.

Of course, its been 3 days since I last posted. Things have been hectic to say the least. Waking up at 4am the past few days and working till 9pm for a company that doesn’t deserve my time, is stressful. That being said, I am actively working towards my own business. No more just saying, but doing. Nerve racking like once said previously, but defiantly motivating in a way.

Other than work, my work outs have been solid and I am currently still doing fantastic on my 4 week no cheat challenge. I am seeing progress and I couldn’t be happier. Yes, I could be a lot leaner but I am keeping my strength which is huge for me. I still don;t know whether or not I want to compete in Nov, but I am definitely going to keep training and eating like I am. I think the only thing that will stop me is the money. It is NOT cheap to compete. It is also very time-consuming and at this very moment I have my college’s homepage up on another tab, hoping to get in some classes. I always have such a positive outlook on things and then instantly I am discouraged. I am hoping I can get my shit together and keep trucking through.

My progress picture.

I haven’t been writing down or keeping track of what I have been eating. Hopefully, after downloading the My Fitness Pal app, that it will encourage me to do so. It will be interesting and helpful, so why not? Today, however, I ate:

1/2 c oatmeal with blueberries at 4:30am.Mixed in 1/2 Quest Bar at 4:45am.
6 egg whites at 8am.
1/2 c brown rice, broccoli and 6 oz chicken at 12pm.
4 egg whites, a little chicken at 2:30pm.
2 kashi waffles with a few blueberries at 3:00pm.
1/2c greek yogurt at 5:00pm.
6oz chicken and broccoli at 8pm.

More oatmeal. Jeez, you would think I actually like this shit.

and so far that is it 🙂 I wonder how much this all adds up to. The app is currently downloading so we shall see. Still sticking around 150lbs. Haven’t lost or gained a pound. I don’t know if I am happy or sad about this. LOL. BUTTT I do have 16 weeks till the show and that is a LONG time. I haven’t been doing cardio, nor paid attention to my calorie intake which is important. I guess I’m just in no rush.

Poor Bunny :(

Poor Bunny 😦

Other than work and working out, which has been my whole life the last 3-5 months, my personal life is just okay. Besides having a cat constantly killing baby bunnies (not kidding. I rushed one to the hospital so it could be put out of its misery), I am having issues with the boyfriend, mostly because of the lack of trust. Though, I am going to stay strong and positive even if it kills me. I just wish life was easier. I deal with scumbags all day and I can only imagine what goes on when I;m not there. It’s a hard pill to swallow and I keep wanting to throw it back up. I mean, one day I am all fine an awesome girlfriend, the next I want to break up with him. I just think it would be easier, for both of us. I mean.. it’s not fair (what is?) to either of us. Me not being happy because I can’t get over shit that replays in my head over and over, and for him.. how I treat him and want to break up with him all the time. I hate to put my bullshit out in the air like this ,but it is what it is. I am venting and little do you know, that my personal life affects my work/working out life. It is a constant struggle and each and every emotion I feel, does not get ignored (unfortunately). That is all. If you don’t like it, no one told you to read it.

I just want a happy life with you. Only you. Forever. I know we have a lot to work on, but I WANT to work on it with you. I want a future with you. I love you. I was never like this before, and maybe it’s because I’ve never loved this hard before. But what I do know, is that I want you by my side through THICK and THIN. I promise to make you happy. I promise to never do you wrong. I am yours.

Friday 19/83 (1/25)

Wednesday of next week, I will be 8 weeks out. I am a little nervous but 2 months I believe, should be enough time. I don’t have a lot of weight to lose but it seems like when you hit 8 weeks the time flies. If I do not feel comfortable in 6-7 weeks I will opt for a show a little later. I believe there is one a week or two after that I was looking into so that will at least give me a little more time.

However, Wednesday of this week was an off day for me. Not because I wanted one but because life didn’t think I should work out. Lol.. My boyfriend ended up becoming stranded with no car so I had to move some things around. I went home and prepared a few meals and by the time I put the lids on, I had to pick him up at the train station. No big deal though (and no I didn’t beat myself up like I usually do), I was sore in all sorts of places!

 

Meal Prepping! Chicken and Brown Rice :)

We grabbed some sushi and got home in time for me to watch the season finale of American Horror Story (my ALL TIME FAVORITE SHOW!!!!!). Passed out shortly after.

My favorite is the second from the left, called Nikko. Shrimp and Avocado (that I take off) over spicy crunch crab with cucumber.

My favorite is the second from the left, called Nikko. Shrimp and Avocado (that I take off) over spicy crunch crab with cucumber.

Thursday (yesterday), I did 45 solid minutes of chest. I was working out for an hour but won’t count it as such because I caught myself starring into space a few times. I don’t know what it was (maybe no pre workout, tired.. idk). I took a little more time in between sets but hey I at least got my ass to the gym. I finished with 15 minutes of stairs.

Definitely sticking with 15 minutes of cardio no matter how bad I want to do more. I need to preserve this ass!

Food wise I am still going strong. Sushi knocked me a little (the sauce is always high in fat/calories), but too be honest I skipped 2 meals on accident so I don’t think it hurt me too bad. I usually have a cheat meal on the weekends but I am going to keep it healthy.

My food for the 8 hours I am at work. Greek Yogurt, Apple, Banana, Almonds, Chicken Brown Rice Broccoli and a Quest Bar (not shown).

My life is slowly but surely coming together, or I am getting better at handling the stress. Money issues, car issues, school issues are still.. well, issues but I am starting to allow God to get me thru them. I am headed over to my aunts after work and hopefully can get some insight on my life. It’s nice talking and getting advice some times, although I know I am going to cry once or twice.. I just know it! Ol well, sometimes I just need to let go..

I did however get my first online client of the year. So with that I am not going to go into detail about my work outs that much because that wouldn’t be fair to the folks that pay for it. I don’t mind answering any and all questions though!

Nothing really planned for the weekend. I do have an appointment to get my taxes done tomorrow and possibly a fishing show on Sunday but that’s as exciting as my weekend gets. I don’t mind (well not all the time. My Jeep is a gas guzzler and I am piss ass broke), I enjoy resting and spending time with my Mom. I think I should take her out for a little lunch date though.. It will be a nice hour or two.

Well.. that is all my friends. Going to do full body work out today (at my aunt’s house because LA Fitness closes at 10 and there’s no way I would be able to get there in time and NO WAY I am missing another work out), Hamstrings Saturday, and Shoulders on Sunday. I hope ya’lls weekend is a little more eventful than mine!

A big pile of Casein.

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

Pretty excited about things lately.. My break up hasn’t been as bad as I expected it to be.. its been more of a blessing rather. Him and I are speaking (I mean come on.. we work together and just plain get along), and are in fact working together to figure things out. It has opened my eyes in many ways. I have learned that pushing people away does more harm than good, and I would rather cherish the time we have together then look for ways to part. It has also taught me that I am my own person. With or without a man in my life, I am still a strong individual with a heart of gold…

and that heart of gold will not tarnish any time soon.

Last night I went to work out rather than spend time at work with the boys grilling and just hanging out. This was for many reasons, but really I needed to get back in the gym. I have been pretty dedicated for the last few days and starting to really enjoy my time in the gym like I once have before. After a semi decent arm workout and a really good cardio session, I updated my email to find a lady by the name of Sue interested in a giveaway on my blog. I emailed back regarding the “terms” and she promptly emailed back. I am not going to go any further into detail but it’s actually pretty cool. I want to offer this giveaway not only to my blog followers but to my twitter and instagram followers as well. So in the next few days, or possibly next week I should have everything up and rolling 🙂

After my session last night, I stopped at jewel for a few things. I have been wanting to make quick and easy meals that could be pre or post work out.. so last night I came up with chicken fried rice. I had the chicken, eggs, and amino soy sauce, so I just picked up some bean sprouts, baby corn and some brown rice (which I didn’t realize was wild rice till I got home.. lol.. nbd).

Made up a couple servings and put away for tomorrows meals, while I tried to do some casein cake thing.. It looks like crap but let me tell you.. it was amazing. I put a scoop of Nuts N More’s chocolate PB in the middle and mixed it all up.. and omg. I HATE the taste of this Dymatize Protein Powder but I was super happy with how this came out. It was like a sticky pancake filled with goodness. It consisted of a scoop of casein, 3 egg whites stirred it together and microwaved for 55 seconds. Added the Nuts N More and microwaved again for about 25 seconds. Here.. here is the goodness:

So, as you can see.. it doesn’t look good, BUT IT FUCKING WAS! hahaha.. and made me love consuming casein again!!

What is Casein protein?

Casein is a slow digesting and rich protein source that continues to feed your muscles long after whey proteins have dropped off. Studies have shown Micellar Casein protein to sustain steady amino acid elevations for an incredible 7 hours. It was shown to offer a strong anti-catabolic effect not noticed with fast digesting whey protein, and actually fostered a much more positive overall net protein balance in comparison.

Day 93- 3 days left..

Wednesday, May 9th…

Woke up fat. No joke.

NO idea where my abs went. Possibly the more carbs I had yesterday due to a leg workout? UGH.

so guess what I did, I googled that shit.

Found the same shit I already knew, drink more water, sweat ext ext.. Did see something about preparation- H.. so I got it. Lmao. I am so bad. Do not follow what I do just yet.. the point of the cream is to apply it prior or cardio so it secretes the fluid out of that area…… *CROSSES FINGERS* *PRAYS* *BLOWS OUT A CANDLE* pleassssssssseeeeeeeeeee work..

I’ve had enough. 3 days. I can do this.

All I want is to finish this contest prep.. EAT like crap for 24 hours, then get back to my normal lifestyle. I want to eat fruit without guilt. I want to EAT TO GROW AND I WANT IT NOW!!!!!! I know I’ll lose my abs for a few days but I don’t care. You should see me at the gym late at night.. I am practically SLEEPING!!! I am trying so hard, then I beat myself up over the fact that it was possibly a shitty fucking workout. I need balance in my life. Balance and forgiveness, especially for oneself.

Alright so yesterday after my never ending work day I headed over to Taylor’s Salon after I walked Marley and ate really quick.. (@La Flavia Salon in IL).. I waited around for a bit, for her to finish with her last client then I was next! She ended up cutting about 4 inches off.. dry cut and everything. It. Looks. Awesome. Anyways after we were chit chatting.. she thought she was going to dye it as well.. well obviously a miscommunication.. haha.. so I am going back tomorrow (Thursday) for her to dye it and style it (just so I know what it looks like and if I want it up or down).. so yes.. any who.. after the haircut we went back to her house and she got ready and we hit the gym.

It was leg day.. the last leg day of this contest prep.  yep. and let me tell you I, my “rest” breaks were me shutting my eyes and trying to sleep. It was awful. The only bright side of this story is I lifted my heaviest.. weird? haha.. no joke.

Blah blah blah got home at 1130pm and passed the fuck out.

I did book the hotel, so that’s another thing off my list of things to do. Now its just a waiting game really lol. Playing around with my poses and how my “abs” look in certain poses.. I am def ready to get all pampered though. Taylor is going to do an amazing job I already know.. now if my body was up to par…..

UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Don’t worry.. I’ll be confident up there because you really don’t have any other choice lmfao.. but deep down I could of done better. I just have to remind myself that I didn’t do this with the intention of trying to out beat every girl.. this was a personal goal.  Really just a set date that I needed to lose that god awful weight in and I think I at least accomplished that. Again.. just WAIT for the before and after pics.. I at least lost 25 SOLID POUNDS OF FAT. Ugh I was disgusting.

Alright that was my little update for you and again I apologize for the lack material in my blogs.. I PROMISEEEEE as soon as I get SOME energy I will put A LOT of effort into making this blog something special. I LOVE receiving the comments/feed back from you guys. It ALWAYS puts me in a better mood/ a smile on my face. So I thank you.

now, to leave you with a photo that have made my jaw drop today..

..talk about  motivation.

Now go work out! 😉

Day 92 – Tuesday 5/8 (Last week).

So it is Tuesday, May 8..

“When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.” -Peter Marshal

 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH oddly the days aren’t flying by like I imagined. It seems like everything has been working out in the smallest ways, therefore making life a LITTLE less stressful.  Granted I just finished a 3 hour exam and have been getting up religiously for morning cardio. The only thing I would say that I am stressing about is losing my ass even more then I have, and getting my period (TMI but I kinda feel it coming. Oh but a little FYI this happened last show too haha).. The only thing that sucks about that is bloating.. and holding water.. this = DISASTER..

 

 

Any who.. at this point, it is what it is. My favorite quote, and something I say almost daily to myself. Its a reminder that we cannot change somethings and I do believe that everything happens for a reason (STRONG believer in this).  I am just going to take this as another thing to check off that I accomplished, something that I trained for for months, something I worked damn hard at (and sometimes not so much HAHA)..  This has been a learning experience for me. As most of you may already know I have struggled with body image for quite some time now. I use to follow what everyone else was doing, and doing shit to my body that I would be ashamed of now. I did whatever I could to look good outside, so I could feel good inside. Little did I know, that was the entire battle. A pointless one. One I wouldn’t win unless I stopped fighting AGAINST the one person I was trying to love all along, myself.  I have eaten next to nothing for days, I have also binged more then one would admit too, I have taken numerous amounts of diet pills, yes I have done a lot in the 23 years I have been living. But growing up hating yourself is a full time job and I am sick of it. It makes me feel uncomfortable, ugly, useless, worthless, and then I turn mean. More so because I am sad inside, but because I am upset with myself. I feel like I failed. How can food be controlling my every move?

Because I allowed it.

No more guys. I sit here with my belly rumbling and 1/2 gallon water sitting next to me. These are different conditions. I am on the last week of my 3 month training regimen, about to walk the stage in 6 inch heels and a bikini in front of hundreds of people, and 4 judges about to critique MY BODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No this isn’t for everyone. Trust me.

It is more mentally challenging then it is physically. The first one I trained for I was shocked. The changes your body goes through and how your brain tries to follow along just gets demanding and you’re left confused. You have to have a happy place and I hope that happy place isn’t balls deep in a bag of Doritos. I don’t believe this was a good decision (regarding competing) in each of my situations only because I wasn’t healthy. I wasn’t ready mentally or emotionally but I did it because in my mind I needed a “goal”. I needed a time limit so I couldn’t make excuses (how’d that work out for me..). But now after this (which surprisingly I have the best attitude towards it then I ever have), I feel so much stronger. Yes I can lift a lot but I mean inside. I feel like I finally have control. Food is fuel = energy. Use it as such. Yes there is a lot of tasty foods out there and yes I think everything is okay in moderation, but why have copious amounts of fat on your body at all times?

Nothing good comes out of it.. PROVE ME WRONG I DARE YOU!

and if you tell me you don’t give a shit and you just want to enjoy food because it tastes good, fine but I can ONLY imagine what you think when you see yourself naked. Honestly.

Alright followers this is a little update/ inside my mind for ya..

Only a couple more workouts and then Friday after my tan I will just chill all day probably flexing.

MORE SO BECAUSE my iphone likes to suck and make it  difficult to leave a comment from it.. so I say I’ll wait till I get to a computer but never do. ADD.. to the tee.

9am work
6pm left work
7pm got home
8pm got to the gym
930pm left the gym
11pm passed the fuck out.

Friday was just whatever. Had kind of a crappy shoulder work out because I could barely keep my eyes open.. but….. I did finish 60 minutes on the stair master. The lady next to me had to look over a few times… I was like closing my eyes and trying to sleep while stepping lol. Anywho I got through it 🙂

The Food Log

Food consisted of 3 chicken breasts, 4 rice cakes, about 6oz of lean ground turkey and a shake. I love simple food. It does NOT take much to please me any more lol. I mean check these pictures out.. Rice cakes with Lean ground Turkey salted with Parmesan cheese. No joke. De fucking licious. I don’t know what got into to me.. THEN the Walden Farms No Calorie Caramel topping on top of a rice cake with cinnamon…. fucking amazing. Maybe its the new weed.. lmfao. Btw.. pot smoking is mind over matter. I posted a picture yesterday because of 420 (got taken down today and now I’m blocked on Facebook for a bit lol) had a lot of reactions. I had people text me and say don’t smoke and I obviously ask why.. and they say because its counter productive.. (again I ask how) and he’s like because you eat like shit, get cravings, blahblahblah FUCK THAT.. no you don’t.. I haven’t had a cheat in HOW long? Validate your shitting eating habits some other way (and yes I have used being high as a reason as to why Ive binged, and Ive been honest about that.. but all said and done its mind over matter) because it’s so overrated. Or maybe I can’t be part of the study, because I am hungry all the time lol… but seriously…. (on a lighter note 2 weeks outs, I have to quit.. so thats in a few days lol)..

The Workout

Shitty Back workout, but a solid 60 Minutes on the stair master.

SATURDAY  (:

Woke up early as fuck, 7am. Thought I slept in lol but laid in bed till 745am, at the gym by 830am.

The Food Log

10am Protein Shake (Dymatize, 1 1/2 TBS PB2, Ice, Water) 2 Salt Free Rice Cake w/ Walden Farm’s No calorie topping.

1pm Rice Cakes w Lean Ground Turkey SO FUCKING GOOD (I put a DABBLE of light sour cream and parmesan) w/ a  SMALL piece of dark chocolate.

430pm Protein Pancake (Muscle Egg and PB2)
630pm 2 Rice Cakes withLean Ground Turkey.

from then till 855pm I’ve eaten 2 squares of dark chocolate and 10 regular white chocolate chips (IDK) and then my mother came into  my room with a shit ton of mail and two packages and my hers muscle and fitness magazine (yay).. The swim suit came in, as well as my quest bars. I’ve already eaten 1/2 of the chocolate brownie one (so about 100 calories, 2.5 carbs)..

No this isn’t bad.. I didn’t want to cheat at all.. but I was totally bored, and my period pains were horrendous.. so in total about an extra 500 calories today.. (leg day but still).. actually this could be a meal but my mother is at the store getting meat for burgers and steak… so.. i overloaded on my protein today.. whoops. any who.. thinking about doing an extra 15 min tomorrow morning and then 15 at night.. 🙂 no big deal

**Didn’t end up eating another meal, so that chocolate and that quest bar is now considered a meal and I would say I over ate by 200 calories. Will make up.

The Workout

830am 45 Min Cardio (Incline 10-16)
5pm Had to start with lunges because everything I wanted to do people were all cluster fucked by.. so

Lunges

60lbs (30 lb DB each) x 20 x 5
This time I timed it (I rounded up) but it took 9.50 seconds to complete 100 lunges. Mind you I had 5 (.15 sec) breaks and 5 (.30) breaks = to about 4.45 in breaks – 10.00 (rounded) = 5.15 to complete 100 (60lb) Lunges!!! :):):):)

I then needed a little break before I did any thing to plyo-y lol..

12 Jump Lunges x 2

Leg Ext

95lbs-125lbs to failure.

No Cardio- legs are shot.

Day 76 in Pictures..

Today was whatever.. I didn’t do shit so I overate. Mostly because I was so tired, but it was all protein. that and fat (cashews and almonds I threw away lol). Just watch how much weight I lose when I take out my fat intake.. oh brother haha.. My suit came in like mentioned earlier.. I like it.. the bottom is too small to use as a regular suit but for competition its perfect.. I’ll show a picture soon 🙂

Not to fucking forget but MY QUEST BARS CAME IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And to think the Larabar had my heart. They are good. Already ordering more and I advised to my mother that we should keep these bars in the house at all times….. These the Larabars and possibly the Pure Protein bars (they are also low in sugars ext, but not as natural as these two bars. These would be for everyone who wanted to snack in my household, because the food we have here now would make you sad).. But yes.. definitely going to rave about these bars.

Sunday (Funday)

Not really gonna be too much fun today lol. Woke up early as balls again. I think my internal clock is not set for 645am, where as before it was a solid 830am. Meh. Sure as fuck better not be a weekend thing. But I got up at got to the gym at 7:11am only to realize they aren’t open till 8am. Not a happy camper because I’m cold and Im not still in bed. Anywho went back and finished a little bit later. I have a 2 hour exam due today, and I need to finish grocery shopping and prepping for the week and read over Chapter 8 before bed. So nothing TOO exciting just a nice little sunday.

 So today started with me in the parking lot of LA Fitness at 7:11am not realizing they don’t open till 8. Who the fuck opens a gym at 8 on the weekends.. lol.. Well whatever, just drove home blogged a bit then went back like a douche. Then on my way back the second time I think it was 5:15pm or something like that and I thought they closed at 6… lmfao.. but they didn’t, it was 8pm so that was good. I would of been even more pissed had that situation turned out not in my favor.. meh.. any who.. Had to take a 2 hour exam today too for Sports Nutrition class, but it ended up not working.. I had to go back and forth with my teacher and didn’t finish it till 4pm.. I originally wanted to take it at 10am…. so a little infuriating but no big deal 🙂 Ended up BBQ’ing with the madre. We have so much food you would think we were serving a 6 course meal for 4. But it was just my meal prep for the week, and so she doesn’t binge on a bag of nutrition less pretzels. Blahblahblah saw a movie, cabin in the woods.. Don’t even know what to say lmfao. Did NOT expect any of that shit. Got home at 930pm, in bed by 10 🙂 How’s that for ya? Excited eh.

Day 70 Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen.

Fuck 70 days already…

and I only think I binged once, and had 3 cheat meals the entire time 🙂 Such an improvement. I am a little nervous as to what happens after the show, but ever since I got into this whole/ natural cooking (thanks to sweetlyvegan, chocolatecoveredkatie and another blog I am forgetting to mention), you come to realize that you can eat GOOD with a little or no preparation. I will cross that bridge when I get to it, but I have this incredible positive energy that came over me a while ago since dieting/training and I think my life has made great changes and will continue to live that way. I like looking healthy. I like feeling good in clothes. The only time I hate getting up (besides ass crack in the morning), is when I feel fat, or am depressed and that usually ALWAYS occurs when I eat like shit and don’t take care of myself.

Anywho.. sorrry. Ha.

The Food Log

10am Protein Pancake w/ a TBS Agave with 1/4c Muscle Egg (it tastes JUST like chocolate milk).

Today has been pretty good. I honestly relaxed all day. Between blogging, hw, working out, prepping meals, and finding out information about tanning and how I want my hair and makeup, today has been rather long. On a more positive note, I have seemed to have kept my ass intact as of now. I am going to be extra careful with the many hours of cardio to come 🙂 Wish me luck ❤

Day 69 <–lol

I love saturday mornings. Actually I love the weekend period, not having an alarm clock needed to be set is an AMAZING feeling and I value the time I have left with this peace.

Not just in general say, come monday, but when I actually have responsibilities later in life with kids. A Facebook friend and a cute little blogger is about to give birth probably any day now. Its super excited watching her grow and buy kids clothes ext (I don’t know where any of this is coming from). Btw I bought her something cute off etsy (which I have fallen in love with), and I just need to send it out. But yeah going back to my little rant, I appreciate my mornings I have to lay in bed and get that extra stretch in without needing to check the time. 🙂

So thank you God.

Day 68 in Pictures..

  1. Leaving Marley this morning. What a puppy face. Happy Birthday my love ❤
  2. Sorry bad picture (IT WAS DARK and early!!!), my morning protein shake, and lunches.
  3. Drawing at 730am. lol. (Told you I had to take his kids to school).
  4. Nectar Protein, I believe. Soy protein that tastes like shit. I mixed it with a little bit of water and just chugged it. Then tried to find something to take away the taste and couldn’t. So I dealt with it a bit. You do what you gotta do!
  5. Got to work and chilled. Found out I am on the Chive.com… browsed a bit before, but didn’t think it was as big as it is..
  6. Chicken and asparagus!
  7. Just some lovely model, Sara Allen, looking fresh.

My boss left before noon which is AWESOME. Had to drop his kids off at school so I had to be up at like 615am. Decided yesterday that I wasn’t going to do AM cardio because I would be in complete and utter bitch mode. Ill just kill it in the gym tonight, even though they close at 10pm. WTF IS THAT BULLSHIT, seriously still pissed off about this issue. Anywho, so what does my boss leaving mean?????????

STRESS. FREE.

yep.

I just do my thing and thats that 🙂 I will surf the web, do practically the entire layout of my blog (case and point), go on pinterest, wanelo, you know. lmfao. 1228pm will update later.

Blahblah blah got off work at 6pm, and let me tell you I have already been up since 545am… so I get off at 6, wait for Mike. Shit happened at work and shit got held up so 630pm came along. I was getting a little annoyed (I’m telling you if I am going to be wasting time it will be in bed), so time was ticking. Then 645pm came and he finally got to rocking. So we chilled for a little big did our thing and by the time I left it was 745pm….. I needed to be at the gym by 8pm to even get a decent work out (plus cardio). So I got home it was 820pm… I had decided  I WAS going to go but to Xsport which is a 24/7 gym… only like 20 min from me and the only gym open past 10pm ON A FUCKING FRIDAY (SOME PEOPLE DONT HAVE LIVES OUTSIDE THE GYM. IT WOULD BE GREAT TO FEEL ACCEPTED!)… no. I will NOT stop bitching about it.. it has GOT to be the dumbest thing, and 8 on SATURDAYS?!??!?!?! WTF???? dude… I’ll work the extra hours if I get to work out. I really would. It’s just so stupid, those hours are VERY popular in the lifting life lol. Any who I started making food and thought it would give me energy, but the longer I stood up the less energy I felt. So my mom said “accept it, and work harder tomorrow.” Alright. So Little miss grandma over here was in bed by 10pm  (after I got done with the push ups and planks). And that was my friday night. (btw one day maybe I will mention my stalker, because they kept me up a little last night, my personal blog may be posted one day.. I have an interesting life lol).

😉

This last girl has my heart
