Gym Visits & Omelettes

Man, work is really stressing this week.

On the plus side, I get compliments almost daily... people love me in my teal & black shirt. The niceties are coming from girls and guys. I'll see if I have a pic of it saved on this laptop.

My back started pinching on me yesterday and I think maybe it's connected to using the ball in the gym to do my crunches. I will stick with the floor for a little while and see if it improves some.

I need to be careful in the gym, don't want to go overboard. I love the sensation of lifting the weight, so I try to do as many machines as I can and free weights daily. The best limit I have is that I attempt it on my lunch hour, making it difficult to do anything for too long.



I've been driven crazy at work with new daily deadlines over budget issues over the whole last month. The latest one handed down this afternoon for close of day tomorrow. Not going to make my back any happier. It also feels like I'm looking up the same information day after day. Oh, well... maybe it won't go on much longer. My prayer is that my boss is happy with the amount of money she's granted for our department after we meet with the higher ups next week.

Other than that, I'm starting to read the portion assigned to me by my group in Modern Art. I have two chapters to read and summarize by the end of the month. That's okay. I have loaded images onto a disk I need for another class and I'm starting an art project for my body of work pieces for that class too. grrrr.... so much to do...

I spoke with Tina from True Results today about becoming a vegetarian and how I should get my protein then. Her response was beans. If I eat those several times a day, I'll lose friends... i'm positive! lol I must credit a guy in the gym with some helpful information as well. Shine Lin, he's a Grad student in Financial Management... and body building buff, answered my questions knowledgeably for a vegetarian that doesn't like to eat vegetables much. Anyway, Tina also said to try a protein powder to sprinkle on my food. She said I could find it at HEB in the health section. I'm going to check things out this weekend.

Also, Shine and I were talking about eggs and then omelets and he said that he had tried to make them after research and has failed miserably. I have tried to research them because he said that and have discovered there are lots of bad videos about this subject. I'm going to buy a few dozen eggs and try it out this weekend if i have time... lol

Where I'm At

Well,

I thought I was doing okay, so I did not take the first fill... now I'm not really losing. I've kind of hovered in the mid-260's since...

bummer? yep. However, I was given the go ahead to start weight training, which I did the Monday following my non-fill appointment. I'm working all my muscles and I couldn't be happier about it. I'm still fitting into smaller clothing, and I love that. I will patiently wait for my next fill date...

and not eat out so much. during the week I'm sticking to my 4 ounce meals (have been) of chicken or fish and veggies... I do usually add a 2% slice of pepper jack cheese for deliciousness.

Anyway, I started losing again, so maybe it was mostly because I was weight training again after so long...
