I’m pretty boring, but hey! It’s all good.

Well.. its one thing after another lately.. Seems that life keeps kicking me when all I’m trying to do is stand up!

But I’m trying to fight back. It’s all I can do. Being proactive about the job search and the opportunities that may come my way. Really just trying to find a job where I continue to do what I love, but also get compensated for it, enough to not only pay my bills but to have SOME what of a life.. because I don’t do anything. Not exaggerating.. I work, workout, eat and sleep. Right now though, it’s not that bad. I don’t mind it because I am truly trying to get ahead in life. I don’t care to go out and drink. I’d rather prove to the world that I have a gift that I’m trying to share!

One day right.. one day.

Having a good start to the weekend though.. Went to work and did my thing, bought some groceries:

The Essentials: Chicken, Eggs, Greek Yogurt, Cottage Cheese, Bananas and Veggie Chips. I also picked up some grapples (apples that taste like grapes), Arctic Zero Ice cream that has only 150 calories for the entire pint and Skinny Cow Snickerdoodle Ice cream Sandwiches. I’ve tried the Strawberry Shortcake and they were fantastic. The Cookies & Dough Bars are crap, so I will see how the SD ones are. Also want to try the Cookies & Cream Sandwiches but they didn’t have them in stock. Probably because SC has been sold for $6.50 and Walmart was selling them for $3.50!!!! MMMM.. remember.. calories in vs calories out (and everything in moderation!)!!

..arrived home and went for a 5+ mile walk with Marley and my mom. It was nice. We spent about 2 hours and afterwards picked up some salads:

All my mom was doing was talking about pizza, about a mile left of our walk and I was actually contemplating it as well! Haha.. I can always go for some pizza 🙂 But we chose to do salads instead which is always better.. well.. not always because well.. pizza will ALWAYS be better.. just not.. better for you. lol. Besides, going out for sushi later so I can save my carbs for then 😉

Speaking of carbs and walking, I have been taking some time off from lifting. Nothing too crazy but after that dead lift I was out of commission (lol). That definitely took A LOT out of me and I wasn’t expecting it. It was nice to lift my heaviest but my body took a toll. I suppose it’s a give/take relationship (: It’s not horrible though.. yes I am fiening (sp?) for the gym but taking time off to fully recover is the right thing to do. Some of my clients think working through the pain all the time, never missing a work out, ext is better.. but (not in all cases) it could be working against you. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! If you think you should take some time off, TAKE IT! The gym will always be there. Don’t risk injury for calories being burned. You can always stay active without going to the gym and stressing your body to the max. Go out for a BRISK (yes BRISK) walk, jog a little.. do body weight exercises (squats, lunges, wall sits, planks) during commercials. Just get moving and you don’t have to stress about always making time for the gym. Get creative and working out won’t be so horrible.

I do watch my calories (or how much “bad” stuff) I eat when I don’t make it to the gym. Yes if you are working out in a home gym or with weights you’ll burn more calories but if you can’t make it to the gym DON’T STRESS! Just watch what you’re eating. Stick to clean foods so you don’t feel even more guilty about not walking in the doors of a LA Fitness or X Sport… Because once again, it’s about calories in vs calories out. Just be conscious.. not naive. You know what you should do, shouldnt do.. what to eat, what you “shouldn’t” eat.. Just live your life in moderation and the weight won’t pile on when you stop being as active (especially in times of injury/surgery ext. This is when people gain the most weight. When they physically can’t exercise).

Don’t make exercising a chore, nor limit yourself to a “diet” because you don’t need to! Trust me! Just start eating healthy (foods that are GOOD for you!!!!), go for walks/jogs/runs, join a bike club, SOMETHING to get the heart going and you will start getting more and more motivated by how wonderful you feel 🙂

How I see the world..

A beautiful disaster.
A place where evolution cant be stopped, and we fear the unknown.
A place where bad triumphs good.
A place where evil lurks.
A place where human life means nothing and justice is rarely served.
I believe there are good people out there, or I at least try to believe.. but the things I've seen, and the things I've heard, breaks my heart.
Like this story below.

Couple Allegedly Rape 4-Year-Old & Leave Horrifying Evidence in Walmart.

Posted by Kiri Blakeley

Every once in awhile you read a story so horrific and sickening that you just want to vomit all over humanity. Or at least vomit all over the so-called humans allegedly involved in this incident. After a Walmart shopper found a cellphone left behind in a cart in Florida, the good Samaritan turned it in to police. And thank goodness the person didn’t just call the owners and return it to them, because police, recognizing the number as that of a registered sex offender, Alan Johnson, decided to take a look at what was stored in the cellphone’s pictures. What they found will give you nightmares.

There were pics of the phone’s owner and his girlfriend, Jennifer Sparks, allegedly raping and abusing a 4-year-old girl. Cops said the couple were abusing the girl “in every way imaginable” and that it was the “worst” case of abuse they’d ever seen. But what is even worse is that police are investigating whether the girl’s own mother handed her over to this pair of devils on purpose.

More from The Stir: Mom Kills Son for Potty Training Accident, Then Eats Pizza

I say if it is definitively proven that the mother handed over her daughter to be raped by this couple, and knew this is what would happen to her, she should be sterilized. Not just prison. Sterilized. She has forfeited her right to have children.

You can’t really get much more solid evidence than videotape of the couple committing these acts, so hopefully they will spend the rest of their lives in prison. At least this new trend of people wanting to videotape their own deviant behavior means a better chance of conviction.

The little girl has been found and turned over to child services. I only hope she can’t remember any of this when she gets older. And thank goodness these two were stupid enough to leave the phone in a shopping cart. Perhaps on some subconscious level, they wanted to get caught.

Said a cop about the couple: “Two animals are off the streets.” I think this is an insult to animals.

Which stores sell the pink slime in foods??

Who sells meat with pink slime? Here’s the list

Which is which? The hamburger made from ground beef containing what is derisively referred to as “pink slime,” or what the meat industry calls “lean, finely textured beef,” is on the right. The other one is pure 85% lean ground beef. (AP Photo/Jim Cole)

You’ve heard about the “pink slime,” right? It’s that meat filler made from slaughterhouse scraps that is treated with ammonia. (Yum!) Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced plans to buy 7 million pounds of it. A federal microbiologist nicknamed the filler “pink slime.”

The Daily, the iPad newspaper from News Corp., has figured out which stores sell ground meat that contains pink slime.

According to The Daily, these are among the stores that say they do not sell meat with pink slime:

  • Safeway
  • A&P
  • Whole Foods
  • Costco
  • Publix
  • H-E-B
  • Waldbaum’s
  • Price Chopper

These are among the stores that do not sell pink slime in store-ground meat, but sell pre-packaged ground beef from suppliers that may contain pink slime:

  • Jewel-Osco
  • Kroger
  • Food Lion
  • Winco
  • Fred Meyer

These are among the stores that sell store-ground meat with pink slime, according to The Daily:

  • Target
  • BJ’s
  • Hy-Vee
  • Safeway
  • Walmart
  • Albertsons
  • Stop & Shop
  • Zaycon Foods

School districts nationwide will be able to opt out of serving “pink slime,” after the USDA announced March 15 that beginning next fall, schools involved in the national school lunch program will have the option of avoiding the product.
