I haven’t blogged in a while.  I can’t even tell myself I am a real blogger.  I just jumped on the bandwagon after the world of blogging caught on fire.  I don’t even follow anyone anymore.  I don’t read my blogroll.  I’m on Facebook.  That’s pretty much it.  The layout of this thing sucks.  I know it’s just a blip on the world of the internet.  And I really don’t want to be well known.  I just want to make a record whether it be a quick note or a long post.  See… Mr. N00bs and I are going to join the reboot and reboot our system.  It involves juicing and that’s pretty much it for now.  After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead it was inspiring and scary.   I want a new life- one where I am not depressed, angry, and laying on the couch all of the time.  Therefore we reboot and start anew.



I’m ashamed… June 24, 2009

I weigh THAT much.  I don’t know what to do.  I’ve lost all control of my eating.


I’m not a mommy blogger…. December 23, 2008

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.

Today is the third workday after the big paycut announcement.  Of course the reality hasn’t sunk in yet because the pay cut hasn’t gone into effect yet.  I can tell you one thing.  I go to work and the disappointment is smeared on my face.  I have difficulty doing my job because I’ve been asked to do twice as much for $10,000 a year less.  I suppose I should shut up because a lot of people don’t have jobs, but I can’t pay my bills as is.  Do you think that a pay cut will help?

I am going to stop bitching about work and the paycut.  I promise.  This is the last day.  Hopefully one of my prospects will come through and I’ll be saying “Adios!” to these bitches.

On a lighter note last night was great at the gym except well… I messed up Scotty’s ear buds.  He wasn’t too pissed because he FINALLY got a little bit of work.  He worked about  6 hours last night and he is scheduled for 8 hours every day until further notice.  And  lets be honest…. with his job further notice can be Friday.  He hasn’t worked for them since the beginning of October.  I don’t’ care.  It’s a paycheck and we are broke.

Back to the gym.  I ran 1 mile and walked 1.  Then pilates for an hour.  It’s fun to workout with Gina.  The time flies by.  Court was there too working with a personal trainer.  Michelle (Don’t you love how I am introducing a whole cast of characters that no one knows?) got the info on Fitsense.  Our friend Kelly is going there and man she looks good.  I am letting Michelle take the lead on this.  Doctor controlled weight loss scares me a little.  I mean the pills, the shakes, the bad food.  I would rather just exercise, which is funny because most people hate exercise.  I don’t.  I’m just a food fatty.  I can’t give up 90% of my food indulgences.  Well french fries.  I rarely eat them.  Otherwise.  I have no control.  They say food is a big part so if I can get that straight I’ll be golden!

Tonight is all running.  I am trying for 3 miles.


Who is sick for 3 weeks? December 1, 2008

Filed under: Exercise,Life — mdmnore88 @ 2:52 pm

Me.  I think in the last 3 weeks I’ve ran 2 miles total max.  I’ve done pilates just twice.  How the hell do I stay sick.  And Oh thank you pepperonis for spoiling.  Thank you so much for giving me two days of throwing up.  Bitching……….  And in the last 3 weeks, I’ve gained 7 pounds.  I’m done.  I don’t care how sick I am.  I can’t rest anymore.  I’m not getting better.  F this noise.  Going to the gym tonight.  2 miles if  my weak ass body can hack it.  Then pilates.  I really doubt I have the endurance for the 5k in 13 days.  I can’t get over my cold.  And now my stomach is shit.  I think too I’ll save the 5k for a nice warm spring day.  In other news Mr. Anubis and I are getting things together.  I think we will be ok.  Mr. A is still unemployed which stresses my shit out.  Oh and since he has been unemployed for over a year he can’t get anymore unemployment benefits.  It makes no sense at all.  He didn’t work.  He can’t find work, but the shitheads at the unemployment office said he didn’t make enough  money to pay into benefits to qualify for another year.  Well hello!  He’s not working!!! AAHHHH!  I look everyday for jobs.  He applies.  My mom even sends some his way, but no luck.  I really want to get out of my 9-5.  It’s a horrible excuse for a job.  Let me paint the picture 1962 called and they want their office policies back.  Sexism is not the way to go.  I should shut up.  Some aspects of small company charm are great.  Turkey for Thanksgiving, Ham for Christmas, an actual monetary Christmas bonus.  Others are not so great.  Such as no vacation or sick time.  Or bereavement for that matter.  When my grandfather died I had to take the whole week unpaid.  Now next year I get a whole week of vacation.  No sick.  And one personal day.  Oh and one comp day.  And the holidays here are terrible.  We don’t get any time off except the biggies.  New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  If any of those fall on a weekend tough cookies.  No day off.  No Christmas Eve or Friday after Thanksgiving.  I guess I am just lucky to have a job.  I’ve lost 3 in the last 3 years.  Not at all due to my issues.  All were layoffs.  I’ve been married for 3 years and my life has never been so complicated.  Thank God Mr. A and I are in love or it would not be a happy time.  But I digress…

Well.  Haven’t written in a while.  Last week was my birthday so I was totally preoccupied with that.  I have added yoga and pilates into my workout.  I do both once a week.  Today the abs are aching.  I am meeting some girls for dinner tonight.  (Thank you Applebees gift card).  I will have to work out prior to dinner, which will suck.  I haven’t really lost any weight, but I can run 3 miles lol.  Not very fast though.  It’s just tough to go back and forth from outside to treadmill.  I run so much faster outside.  But with the scary cold and dark… I only get 3 days to actually run outside.  Fridays if I book it home I can make it with light.  Saturdays and Sundays really are my only choices.  I just need to work on mental preparedness.  There are some major issues that I don’t want to divulge to my 4 blog readers that is weighing on my mind.  I really need to take care of some things and that is making it hard to focus.  These are the types of things that are not life or death physically but emotionally, mentally, and financially.  So we’ll see what happens.
