Obviously I have not posted in days. It is not due to lack of my creative juices, but lack of time. The weekend was monopolized by a fantastic wedding and pre-wedding events. I will have pictures for you to see very soon. As for the hundred pushup challenge– I am officially finished week 2. I am impressed I can still hang. What I am not impressed with is the weight gain from my weekend of binge eating and drinking. My workout regime is pretty pathetic. I have no cardio, but I lift weights nearly every day in addition to the pushups. What I really need is a good slap in the ass to get it moving! I am closing this post quickly and quietly, because I am updating from work- a little annoyed. Still searching for the dream job…..
Week 2, Day 2 July 25, 2008
So here I am still hanging on by a pushup…. Bad joke. I have successfully completed the second day of week two in the hundred pushup challenge. My weight has been stable this entire week. I really was looking for a loss, but you can’t win every time. I am seeing a major difference in my arms. That makes me happy and proud at the same time. If anyone is looking for a free, effective, and challenging workout that is easy to follow check out the hundred pushup challenge.
Working 9-5, well actually 7:30-5:30 July 23, 2008
I sit at my desk nearing the end of my day. This is the time of day I really wish my job provided inspiration to me. I think of things I am passionate about: singing, dancing, reading, food, exercising, theatre, movies, animals, preventing animal cruelty, etc. and wonder how I can tie my interests into a fulfilling career. I am college educated. I have several years in the workforce, because I worked full time and went to college full time. Where is my place in the work force. At this point in my life I find that I am more confused than ever. I see my husband persuing a career that interests him. He is passionate about computers and the IT field in general. Once he completes his certifications he will be in career heaven. I guess it’s a little bit of jealousy on my part. Where will my career voyage take me?

The 7 Hamburgers of the Apocalypse July 22, 2008
God I love food… It’s an illness. Head over to the Diet Blog and check them out. Yes they are bad for you. Yes they can kill you. Yes eating an overabundance of fattening food will make you gain weight, and clog your arteries…. But it is so good. Take a look. Tell me if this is death by cheeseburger!
Holy Shit my chest hurts!!!! Ok the hundred pushup challenge wouldn’t be called a challenge unless it’s… hmm…. challenging!!!! I really like how my arms are shaping up though. I’m proud of myself. I am actually sticking it out. I would have begun week 2 a little sooner, but I pulled a muscle in my neck and that really sucked. I don’t know if I was headbanging too much or if I slept wrong.
I am slowly building up my blog subscriptions. They are all fabulous in their own ways. I’m not a mother, nor do I ever intend to become one, but I still enjoy the parenting stories. There are also some fantastic weight loss blogs out there. Check out Journeying to Lose 200 Pounds. This is my latest addition. I have no idea who I am speaking to since my blog readership is about 0! If you happen to hit my small area of blog space check out my other links as well!
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. July 19, 2008
Certainly not an Inventory Control Manager. The job itself is not overly difficult. It’s just no fun. I mean I can sit for hours and do nothing. Or I can sort through endless spreadsheets of numbers look at their usage, discount them, and put them on clearance. I can also do warehouse transfers, create purchase orders, or expedite old purchase orders. Yeah… I sound so intelligent, so important, so… who gives a flying fuck. I’m really only holding on through the summer. I must have a job! Scott is still in school until October. I am our only source of income. And I don’t make a whole hell of a lot! We’re poor. Broke. We have nothing left to use. No savings, 401ks, not much equity in the house. I mean our house is a tiny little thing and the market blows big time.
So here is my existence. My job is neither fulfilling nor does it suit me. I MUST work because my husband does not. I have no money, therefore any career change would mean only for a significant pay increase. Job security is also important, because at least one of us should work-right? Over the next few months I’ll be researching the types of jobs that interest me. And how I can get them… Because now it’s my turn. Scotty is pursuing his dream job. I need to know what is mine.
Ugh Food Blogs are so boring…. July 18, 2008
OK sorry for the lack of Food Blogs. Honestly, I enjoy journaling about my exercise endeavors rather than my food. I don’t want to think about fat free this and sugar free that. I want to think about this:
Sorry for the food porn…. I just love to eat. I lack so much self control.
