And i couldn't be happier.

how weird is that?

I've just got home from working out. that's 5 days this week that I've been to the gym. that's insane to me. I never considered my self a gym rat, but i guess that's what I've become.

I know this isn't my 'fitness blog' but I'm i know you all wouldn't mind a post or 2.

I'm on my 3rd straight week of working out, I've never stuck with it this long before. I'm dead set on losing this weight. I'm determined.

my starting weight: 182lbs
my current weight: 164 lbs.

Wordless Wednesday


Last night was hard

Last night i had a nightmare.

Last night i dreamed my dad died.

I realized i was no longer dreaming when the background noise stopped. and yet, i couldn't shake it.

B rolled over and woke me all the way up. I was shaking the bed so hard by my sobbing, i woke him up.

It took me a good hour to stop crying and pull my stuff together. and another hour to get back to sleep. Even then, it wasn't good sleep.

I couldn't bring myself to call my dad in the morning. I knew if i heard his voice i'd LOSE IT! So i called him on my way home from work.

I love my dad
our conversation went like this

Dad: Hello
Me: Hi daddy. How you doing?
Dad: Fine... why?
Me: I had a bad dream last night
Dad: Oh ya?
Me: ::tears up:: yah, i dreamed you died! Are you okay?
Dad: yah, last time i checked i'm not dead.
me: thats good


in case you didn't know. I'm a HUGE daddy's girl. I love him!

2 New Blogs

so with the new year I've started a couple new projects.

my first one is a Photo Blog with a group of amazing woman i love.
- One Day at a Time -
we'll do weekly 'assignments' and we're each assigned to a day. my day is Tuesday .

and my second one is a fitness blog.
I've been working on my fitness, working out, and being overall healthier for a while now. Now, i just have a blog about it.

- Project Fit Rotty -

this is what happens with a sarcastic smart ass attempts to be fit and lose weight. I'm going to post recipes, strategies, and anything else i can think of.

I'm working on buttons for each.

hope you enjoy them both.

I just realized that there is no way i'll be able to go to school this term or next term. so looks like fall term 2010 is the closest i'll come to going back to school.

I'm so frustrated i could cry.


Well, i did cry.

but after i screwed my head on straight, i decided to email the advisor for my old college. But i got no good news.

I asked her if she knew of any decent colleges online to earn my degree from.
Looks like i'm between a rock and a hard place

I have to work, because B isn't
I want to go to school, but can't due to my hours
I want to move with B when we get orders, but i could stay here for 3 terms and finish it out. but i won't.

again... i'm frustrated

Happy New years

Happy New Year

Its a day late. but i spent most of yesterday in bed recovering from a very fun new years eve.

I've never been that drunk or this hungover in my life. and I've done a lot of drinking in my short time on this earth.

but anyways. back to the new year.

I don't really believe in new years resolutions. I did for a really long time. then i started going to the gym and year after year i dread the 'new year resolution rush' yes, its good for the gym business, but its annoying to those of us who actually stick with it.

While those of us who i deem as 'regulars' in my gym hours are courteous and polite, the 'new ones' come in, sweat on our machines, don't clean up, are rude, and stinky and gross (okay the last 2 are a generalization, but it makes a point).

So Jan 1st comes around and the gym is bombarded with people who start with high hopes but have no follow through. i wish them luck, and i wish they would stay but 90% of them don't.

by Feb, the rush has been cut in half and by mar we're back to the normal routine with the regulars and smaller class sizes.

back to new years.

I've stated before that my goals for this year (not resolutions... goals)

are to:

-Keep going to the gym 2-3+ times a week
-Keep eating healthy
-Keep track of what i eat daily
-Keep the water intake up
-And be happy

These are things I've been doing, i want to continue to do, and all in hopes of losing this weight that's mysteriously crept up on my ass, hips and thighs.

I created a new fitness blog, to hold me accountable for at least a weekly check in, but hopefully more than that.

I have a friend who's helping me with tracking my food through WW points and if i pair that with Spark people and they're amazing tools, i should be unstoppable.

The only thing standing in my way is me.

I can do this.
I will do this.

... wish me luck.
