bootcamp and this and that

more boot camp blah blah blah.... where's all the excitement gone?!! cause it definitely ain't here...

whats a gal to do when she needs to shake things up a bit?! suggestions? Ill take any... really... and maybe some wine while your at it....

For reals, I went to bed at 9:30 last night!! Mind you, I was exhausted from working out with a shitty cold... and I'm wanting to get rid of this cold asap... but still!!

wo(e) is me. I'm so wo(e).... down with webster.... anyone? i don't actually like them... i swear! they just have stupid lyrics that my boyfriend gets stuck in my head!

well, at least its Friday. always beloved Friday.... what shall we do today?!

bootcamp day 12...

yes yes boot camp was on Tuesday... and it was hard so usual... and a rather large sized class. more boot camp tonight, tomorrow and Saturday.

I didn't go to the gym last night cause i have a really annoying cold, which came out of nowhere!! I am not impressed... working out is double as hard when you have to blow your nose every 10 seconds! gross. gross. gross.

well... being sick makes me sad... and as such I don't fancy writing much more today...
although i may revise my blog... and take it in a new direction... I'm having second thoughts of letting everyone know everything I do...

bootcamp 9, 10 and 11

I went to boot camp Friday, Saturday and Monday...which makes for one tired kitten!!
But I have to get in as many days as I can.... my unlimited month ends next Monday... which means 5 more days of boot camp from now until then.... and then I can only go twice a week.

Well, my weekend was good... I had a nice date with my boyfriend... we went to Accent...nom nom... and then to New City. We saw the Roommate... and I don't care what you say... I liked it!!
Also... watched Let Me In...which is super creepy...

I had to work for a bit yesterday... which totally through off my day as I was not expecting to have to go in at all... grrr... when will this work thing become fun... never... oh don't be so pessimistic and bleak...
One day, I will have a job I love and want to squeeze and kiss everyday, as if it were a puppy or a piglet...one day... a gal can dream...

speaking of work... I'd best get back to it... oh and I also am going to have a grapefruit now... surprisingly I dont eat very much fruit... and as such, I am actively trying to change that. Know any yummy recipes which have lotsa fruit in them....?!!

bootcamp day 8

eight days doesn't seem like very long... hmm...well, anyways, I had boot camp again last night. it was a good one. we got to use skipping ropes! real skipping ropes! usually we just pretend we have a skipping rope... which is kind of funny actually, the trainer makes you move your hands/arms as if your holding a skipping rope.

I went to bed super early last night and had strange dreams... and am only a little bit tired today, which is a plus; i haven't fallen asleep at work at all!!

Im off to boot camp again tonight and tomorrow... and in case you didn't know it yet, its a long weekend!!

Bootcamp day 7...and some other stuff

I forgot to update you on boot camp... as Im sure you are all dying to hear about it.
We skipped out on Monday because it was Valentines Day, and went on Tuesday.
Tuesday was such a funny class! There were a group of friends, three of them, and I think it may have been there first time there. One of them was absolutely hilarious; she couldn't understand how to do any of the exercises and was so animated in everything she did. She couldn't really speak English very well, so I think that was a probably part of the reasons he didn't get it, but she was straight out so freaking funny. The trainer was demonstrating an exercise for us, and this girl for real, points and laughs at her! She was also just out of shape, not overweight or anything, just not use to so much physical movement, I guess, so she couldn't keep up and was so dramatic in her display of exhaustion. She was like an anime character! It was a lot funnier than Im describing, Im sure.

Well, in other news... I went to the gym last night, ran 3 miles, than went home to make dinner and watch American Idol. I dont really remember their names but the people I like thus far are: The Cowboy- hes sooo cute and has such a country/cowboy voice! The wannabe rocker, who is autistic or something- he has a total rock and roll voice, but it is such a wannabe. JC- the fat little boy who actually got kicked out of a group by some loser- hes too cute and can actually sing. And the girl with the totally retro, high pitched, weird voice, who got kicked out last night; she was so rad, and her voice was wicked! hmmm, I cant think of anyone else...

Well, enjoy your Thursday,

A Valentine Montage

A Valentines Day Montage

Classic Cartoon Couples

Me teeth are finally back to normal.No more pain. Just a nice, bright smile!

Now, time to get a fancy electric tooth brush, whitening toothpaste and mouth wash...and Ill be all set to keep my pearly's white!!

Friday, February 11, 2011


Well, I got my teeth whitened!! And now they are sparkly and bright! The procedure hurt a bit... but the real pain came afterwards, with sharp, pains sporadically running through my teeth...and later when I was trying to sleep, none stop sharp pain...all night... equally no sleep. This morning, it was a constant pain, which has dulled a little...perhaps due to my Tylenol...or perhaps do to my getting use to the pain...
My teeth better stay white for a while...thats all I have to say!

Off to boot camp tonight...and perhaps out for a drink or two... if Im not too exhausted.

Enjoy your weekend kiddies!

I think I just may be addicted to hummus! Once I start I cant stop!! Its so delicious! I especially like spicy hummus, but they didn't have any at the supermarket last night so I got a lime hummus...nom nom.

So today I am for real going to get my teeth whitened. This will be my third and final attempt. No traffic or snow or anything is going to stop me this time! And tomorrow Ill wake up with a oh so bright and gorgeous smile! And then will only be able to eat things that are white for 24 hours... or was it 48 hours? Ill have to double check.

well....keep on rockin cats and kitten!!

bootcamp day 5

Another night of boot camp last night- as usual i got nice and sweaty! I wasn't feeling very motivated though, so I probably didn't get as much out of my workout as I could have. I don't have boot camp again until Friday! What ever shall I do with myself?!

Also,not feeling motivated to write... has this lemon gone sour?! ecks, I hope not. Time to make myself motivated I suppose...

any tips on how to make your day extra happy? I take vit d every day to get my happy vitamins that the winter sun lacks. I take vit c too... And today I wore a dress and heels, which almost always makes my day better.

bootcamp day 4

I had boot camp again last night. The intensity definitely varies from day to day. Last Thursday's workout was much harder than last nights. But i still burned a heck load of calories and sweat up a storm. My girlfriend and I signed ourselves up for three more months after this month is through. So I had best see some kick ass results or I will be oh so disappointed. So aside from boot camp 2-3 x a week, I run laps at the gym once a week for about 45 mins, and hopefully will be doing much more yoga. And as soon as its warm out, Ill be going for runs outside.
If anyone has any other fun physical activities, please do let me in on them! Im in getting in shape mode!!

the calm has set in

Welcome back Monday....

I had a rather calm weekend... it seems things are getting a little too calm around here...

There was the gig Friday night which was okay. I had a few drinks, got a little dolled up and had a nice slumber afterwards.
Then there was relaxing and sleeping in and watching cartoons, and cuddling.

Saturday night I made some jewelry and hair accessories for THE DEADCITY FLEA MARKET next month at The Mead Hall, march 26. More to come on that later.

This week shall consist of boot camp x3, teeth whitening, sleeping, sleeping, laundry, bills, and work...

boot camp day 3

Last night was my third night of boot camp, and the last one for this week. It was a lot of cardio and I was soaking wet by the end of it. I'm not sore today though, but that's probably because we didn't do very much strength stuff, but we did work on our core quite a bit too...six pack here I come....?

I got some pictures done in December by a friend and he gave me cd with some of them yesterday, so perhaps I will post one or two...

Anyway, its Friday!!! And work is half way over! Then I'm off home to get ready and then come back to the club for a gig I'm putting on tonight.

I know its been a little boring around here lately... I'm focusing on working out and de-stressing. But perhaps some fun will pursue tonight which I can tell you about!!

Have a great weekend!!

Working up a sweat

I didn't have boot camp last night, because it was date night at the gym!
I ran 3 miles in just under 45 minutes. I think that's decent time... I don't really know. But I really pushed myself, and think I burned a calorie or two!

Oh, and I made it to lululemon and got some amazing running pants. They feel so nice and smooth! I love them more than any of my other lululemon gear, and fear I may know be addicted to them, they are so nice!

I also made a nice big ol pot of soup for after the gym. nom nom. I love soup!

Then had a bath... a mediocre bath, as Ive run out of Lush bubble bath :( and didn't know it until I already had the water running.

Boot camp again tonight and then a gig tomorrow night at The Mead Hall, come one, come all :

bootcamp day 2

Last nights boot camp was definitely harder than the first day. The class was smaller too, so I guess the size completely depends on how many people sign up to go on that day. We did a few different circuits, focusing on numerous different body parts. I think every part of me hurts today. Its only an hour, but you can really do so much in that period of time.
I'm getting myself to bed earlier too, which is a bonus, and exercise releases happy endorphins, so Im bound to feel good even if Im hurting!

Im not going to boot camp tonight because Im going to the gym with my boyfriend, but Ill be going again tomorrow.

Im off to lululemon tonight before the gym too! I love getting new work out gear!

Have a lovely day!

bootcamp day 1

Boot camp day 1: I started a new boot camp at new body health and wellness. Its a bit different than bikini boot camp... its inside for one thing,men partake, its bit more casual, and the class size is bigger. A lot of the exercises were the same and there was a circuit part which included strength and some cardio. I don't think its as intense as bikini boot camp, but its still a good workout, and left me sore this morning. You don't really get any one on one time with the instructor, and there isn't much time to ask questions about an exercise if you don't understand it, as the class is too quick paced and large.

Im defiantly going to go as many times this month as I can though, and will probably do it again next month. Its nice to be in a group atmosphere, and workout inside!

Ill be heading back tonight, and once more this week as well. Like I said, its time to get in shape!!
