Now we’re in trouble…….

Its New Years Eve And I’m Still Sick December 31, 2008

Seriously, just a super fast morning update before I hit the shower.  I have been sick for over a week.  Do you know why?  Because some dick found it necessary to come into work while he knowingly was sick and he KNEW he was contagious.  I catch colds pretty easily.  I just got over being sick for 3 weeks.  I got to be healthy for 2 weeks and sick again.  Shit.  LISTEN TO ME: You are not a “trooper” when you come to work sick.  In fact, if I were in charge if you had sick time and your ass rolled into work sick I would force you to go home.  He did have sick time.  Me- I don’t.  I’m new.  I’ve only been there a year.  This is just one more thing to add to my bitch fest…..

On a lighter and much more fun note I am meeting up with some friends at Foga De Chao for dinner tonight.  I can’t wait.  I looked at their website and it’s ultimate food porn.  I get hungry just thinking about it.  Now if I only wasn’t sick I could enjoy it…..

PS stop by  later today.  I will tell all about the saddest day in my marriage thus far.

Sorry for the lack of linking.  My linking skills are sub par and it appears there is something wrong with the way I am linking so I will have to read up on it.


I am glad… December 30, 2008

I am glad 2008 is coming to an end.  It was a tough year for Scotty and me.  I can only hope that 2009 will bring much, much more joy.  We are heading in the right direction.  Scotty has a new job, we were super spoiled for Christmas (more on that in the next paragraph) and that put us in a great mood.  So far the luck is going pretty well.  A $50 scratch off winner, a super clean house, great friends and family….  I am truly blessed in that category.  Without my family and friends I would be so lost.

Well for Christmas I was totally and completely spoiled.  First my mom and dad went way overboard with the Bronco paraphernalia.  Scott got everything from Bronco blankets to Bronco shoes.  I even got this cute Bronco scarf.  I got a PDA, which I’m not sure about using.  I am afraid of them I think.  I use the old pen and paper route.  I think if I force myself then I might like it.   There were clothes galore.   After we finished opening our gifts my parents surprised me with the vacuum I wanted.  Then they blind folded us and took us into another room where surprise!  a Sony Bravia TV, Blu-ray player, and 5.1 surround sound system.  It was the biggest gift we’ve ever received.  We didn’t expect much because my parents always do so much for us, but we were totally spoiled.  Oh and my mom also go me a day at the spa!  My uncle gave me a Nintendo DS.  I actually can’t wait to play.  I am going to get a solitaire game and play for hours!  And the cat game.  Our very good friends Chris and Amy gave us $100 to spend in WalMart.  I know I am getting a DS game plus a new hair dryer.

As I said totally spoiled!!!!

I’m not a mommy blogger….

Then what am I.  I am happily married.  I do speak of my fitness and weight loss goals on here, but I also speak of my life goals as well.  The purpose of this blog was to see if I could find any other professional women out there who share the same issues as me.  I chose not to have kids.  It’s my choice.  I made this decision a long time ago.  That’s not to say I hate kids.  To the contrary.  I love them.  I’m just not mommy material.  As for a fitness blog,  I really really try.  But my exercise routine is boring.  And my eating is shit.  I can’t even calculate the amount of calories I obliterated yesterday.  I mean it’s the Christmas season.  My vendors just love to stop by with chocolate covered almonds and cookies, cakes, chocolate covered pretzels.  The list goes on.  And who wants to do my routine.  I ran for 1.5 miles then took an hour pilates class.  Whoopie.  I’m no fitness expert.  I’m overweight, but still a good runner.  I’m lovable.  But irritated too.  I’m dealing with job insecurities, my husbands job loss- but now has matriculated into a job!  So what am I?   A married without children, happy-go- lucky, late 20’s professional purchasing and inventory control, life, goals oriented, beer loving, runner, friendly blogger?  Who knows.  I am still trying to figure my life out!  It’s cold outside.  Better bundle up.


This is where I talk about my overabundance in the boob area….. December 19, 2008

I’ve been running for a while now.  About 4 years.  Maybe that’s not a long time really, but to me I’m proud.   I was fairly athletic.  I played softball until I was 13 with the occasional game here and there in gym class.  I began dancing when I was 4 and until recently kept with it.  (I promise that in the upcoming new year I will take a class.  I miss it too much!)  I worked in local theatre for 6 years.  I’ve always been an active person.  But, here’s my problem.  Ever since I started my “hard core” running training 13 weeks ago I’ve noticed something.

See I am a D cup actually almost a DD.  With my more frequent and lenghty runs my boobs have become very sore.  Here’s my dillema.  I’ve never had this problem.  I’ve always had good bras and good sports bras.  As a dancer you have specific underwear for your costumes.  And that always worked.  Something is not working.  My boobs well they are really heavy.  I wish there was a way for me to weigh them individually.  I bet they are 5 pounds or more a piece!  I have no idea how to remedy it.  I have NO idea what type of underwear or bra or compression shirt to wear.  It’s gotten to the point that when I brush against something it hurts.  And running is don-right painful.  But I won’t stop running.  There was a point in time where running for a minute was not possible.  Now I am running for 30 minutes or more.  Last night I only ran 1/2 mile and walked 1 1/2 because of this.  I don’t want to stop running.  This pain, however, it can be unbearable.  Any suggestions from my imaginary readers would be great.   And I know my male readers do not have the issue up top, rather below the belt.  Is it the same for you um….down there?  Help my poor achy boobs.
