thatawkwarddisneymoment: Real life: Tumblr: OMG. Yes.
milemarkersoflife: I’m being creeped on in the library by @beckyc! This is what happens when tumblrs live in the same city and go to the same school!!! hahaha Yep. Grace divulged my secret. Tumblrs- I’m a creeper.
Oh sweet baby cheeses.
I just tried dark chocolate almond milk. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE.
Today was pretty alright.
Went to my classes, went to work, it rained, and I went to the gym. And I ran* 2 miles without pain!! Wooo! Warmup: 10 minutes stair climber 1.06 mile, 50 floors Weights: Deadlift! 8-6-4-3 @ 115-135-155-175 lbs (I haven’t deadlifted in SO long) Hip Adduction: 3x8 @ 150-170-185 lbs Leg Extension: 3x8 @ 90-105-105 lbs Calf Raises: 3x35 Hip Abduction (I felt like this machine was...
Some observations today.
The elliptical maxes out at level 25. Um. Yeah. Also, I feel like I’m the only person who doesn’t depend on coffee or other caffeinated beverages to stay awake during the day. All I ever read and hear about is people needing their coffee.
My t-shirt that I’m wearing today that is from 8th grade, the front of the shirt fits super loose on my stomach. Even the chest area, it used to fit much tighter. This shirt is almost (and probably should’ve been years ago) pajama t-shirt big!
New hair straightener today.
Prepare for pictures. Been attempting to study most of the day. Got to see a dead body again. Apparently, ways to identify body tissues include “cotton candy”, “rivers”, and “wavy bacon”.
So I have this friend.
She’s super nice. And an Olympic athlete. And incredibly beautiful. She invites me out somewhat often, the only thing is, there are times that I don’t like spending time with her because everywhere we go she gets hit on and asked out by guys. She’s not a flirt by any means, and she’s Christian and waiting for marriage and refuses to date boys. But she still gets asked...
A semi moral dilemma.
There’s this half next weekend that I originally wanted to do the full marathon for, the half doesn’t seem to have a time limit. I was thinking of walking it since I can’t run it thanks to my IT band issues. Thoughts?
I typically know my way around a computer..
but not right now. So I just bought a 1TB external hard drive for my PC, and I went to the control panel to back it up, it’s currently backing up. My computer’s been super slow so I just want everything on the external and just keep programs on the hard drive. So my question- does the backup do that for me or do I manually have to move everything manually to access my stuff on the...
"I see you in here all the time."
Got that comment twice today. Once from a guy that I met at a party last weekend that’s in some classes of mine that I keep seeing and the second time from this girl that works here at the rec that I started talking to cause she’s in my anatomy class. I haven’t been recording my workouts besides in my notebook, but I’ve been going every day (except for yesterday, I...
Shrunken: The biggest reward of weight loss is →
shrunken: being capable. That’s what I realized today. I was sitting in a parking lot while my boyfriend put his bike tire back on and spontaneously climbed on top of my (albeit small) car with no problems. There I was, in my business casual clothes, giggling on top of my car and it just really hit me: … This.
I just love everything right now, actually.
So that girl I bonded with over running shoes in nutrition, we got to talking in class and she asked me if I swim, I told her of my triathlon aspirations and she said she has been wanting to do one too! Her boyfriend is a cadet at the Air Force Academy and is on the triathlon team and told her about one with an indoor swim that she should try. So we might be doing that! I think it’s in...
Just bonded with a girl before class over running shoes. She had Brooks too. It was awesome.
I'm so frustrated.
Remember that IT band pain I’ve been having? Well it still hasn’t gone away, and don’t get to see my primary care doctor so THEN i could get a referral to a therapist until Thursday. I want to do the Denver Rock n Roll marathon. At the very LEAST the half. But when I run I go through excruciating pain. Anytime I go further than a mile or even WALK downhill. I just wanna run....
I wasn't sure I fully grasped how awesome my...
I’m just so excited. I might weigh MAYBE 2 pounds less than I did from the first picture. February 3rd: August 24th!! So freaking excited. Gun show Thursday gotta love it.
Oh my Anatomy...
Second day of Anatomy and Physiology class. I’m already terrified. I’m trying to be positive, but there’s SO MUCH. I really really want to do well. I saw my first cadaver today. That was creepy as all hell. Not what I imagined it to look like. Or smell like. I’m gonna make flashcards to study. I don’t even know where to begin though, besides definitions and...
Good start to the day!
I’ve been getting less than 5 hours of sleep every night this week, and considering all I do in the day, it’s been taking a toll on me. Last night I still fell asleep at midnight, but my class doesn’t start til 9:25 and I decided to skip the gym this morning so I can have a little more sleep. My body’s very grateful. Weigh in Thursday! Week #44 SW: 168 lbs Last...
If one can stick to training throughout many long years, then willpower is no...– Emil Zatopek (via asthepenguinruns) was at this point last winter. so good. (via getyourrunningshoeson)
I act on impulse a lot.
Well, a certain someone mentioned he was going to do the Kalamazoo marathon in Michigan. They have this incentive thing that if you’re the first person to sign up from your state, they reimburse you your entry free and you get new shoes. SOOOO… I may have signed up. May 6, 2012. Kalamazoo, Michigan. Be there, or be..not there, I guess. Preferably be there! Anyone else wanna do...
that if I need to be up at 5am that falling asleep anywhere NEAR midnight is way too late. NEED MOAR SLEEP
I have a lot to say but keep forgetting what it...
1. I ate really well today. Resisted the beer gardens at the race, and even though my friend offered to buy me food I said no! 2. I love my roommates. My roommate/landlord Sergei, proclaimed me as his unofficial little sister, which I love because he is awesome and so far has taken care of me so well. We’re like a family that actually likes each other. It’s nice. 3. I met Andy...
I was thinking..
I’ve been feeling pretty crappy not just self esteem wise, but just my body’s been running at less than it’s best. And I figured it out! 1. Food this weekend was less than stellar, I ate out THREE TIMES. I haven’t done that in at least 3 or 4 months. 2. I had more alcohol in the last few days than I had all summer. 3. My hormones have been all out of whack. Had...
My sociology teacher is an ultramarathoner. He’s cutting class early cause he just did a 100 mile race yesterday!
Not feeling so awesome today.
Made my usual 3 egg omelette and oatmeal and couldn’t even get through the oatmeal. Had like 5 bites. The sip of juice I had before I ate that I got The urge to throw up, and I did. It’s not first day of school jitters either. My stomach kinda feels like it did yesterday. Hopefully I’ll be able to get something in my stomach in a bit.
Last day of summer vacation.
Spent last night drinking with my roommates, drank too much and got x-ed at the bar. I also had taken off my shoes and everyone kept passing them off then my roommate Sergei gave me a piggyback ride out of the bar so I wouldn’t step on anything bad. That was embarrassing. Slept on my hand and woke up with an x on my face. And my leg. Spent the morning feeling sick hungover and am only just...
Have I mentioned that I love my roommates?
They’re awesome. I can drink with them. I drank with my family then after awhile my roommates invited me to go drink. Love it!
I’ve had about 5 shots worth of drinks. At least. Sharing alcohol stories with a family friend and sister and brother in law. What is this nonsense.
It's only been like a week.
And I’ve already been spoiled by my house. Currently with the family and already feel like I need alcohol. I don’t think I’m related to them. I can’t ever get along with them. My sister was accusing me of being drunk before I even had anything because I spoke with my mouth full. Just.. What. Now my family is talking about playing beer pong. And i just saw my twelve year...
