  1. So, Nope, haven't been around much. I was feeling down for a bit because last week, I jammed my toe on my coffee table. I hit it SO HARD and at JUST THE RIGHT ANGLE that It ripped off my toenail and fractured my bone. I tried to deny the fact it was broken, but over the course of a week it became obscenely obvious that it was broken. 2 days ago I made the mistake of trying to put on sneakers and go to the gym. OH HEEEEELLLLL no. So that made me feel incredibly bad. I can't do any cardio and I can't go to the gym to lift. I'm left with my dumb bells at home with no shoes on, and it's get
  2. So, maybe it's time to switch up my goals. I don't know. My muscles are awesome. My arms look nice and muscle-y (hehe) and my legs are getting better. And I love lifting. For this, I'm happy. I'm happy even though I usually can't dfind the time to get to the gym 3x/week... yeah it's just not working out between work, school, my kid, etc. And despite being happy, I'm still realistic... even though I know I'm replacing fat with muscle, I do need to drop this excess weight. I wish this were as simple as calories in vs. calories out but for me, it isn't. I am showing a deficit DAILY. I s
  3. No, I didn't row crew... I went to art school and I'm pretty sure the most active thing we did was haul rocks to carve.
  4. Finally got my ex-husband's name off my back!! Before and after. So happy. It hurt. It hurt A LOT and it STILL HURTS. The artist said it's because with cover ups, you really have to hammer in the ink so the previous tattoo is covered. I was bleeding like crazy and it a lot of pain. now it feels like someone burnt me with an iron. I probably didn't help that I went to the gym today and did arms and back. He also touched up my one foot tattoo and touched up the star I have on my ankle. Then we decided to put my daughter's (Sophia) name above the star so she was still on me.
  5. I can't dye my hair "unnatural colors" or have any facial piercings, visible tattoos, etc. But my kid is only 7 so why not let her dye it while she's young? I'm already the youngest mom at that school.. I swear all the other moms and dads are 35-40. I'm 29, and always feel awkward at assemblys and the like. So now I'm the young mom that lets her kid dye her hair purple as well! Oh, social stigmas... Speaking of tattoos, Right before my divorce (of course) I got a tattoo on my back with my ex-husband's and daughter's name. Stupid, I know.. but anyway, Originally, I went back to the gu
  6. I hope all the mother's out there had a good mother's day. Mine was laid back and uneventful (which is good!) My ex-husband had our daughter until Sunday afternoon... so Friday night my boyfriend took me out to dinner for Mother's Day, (he worked Saturday and Sunday) gave me a teddy bear that said "number 1 mom," a handwritten letter, and a Doctor Who bracelet. We went to a thrift store, and relaxed. It was very sweet. I didn't feel great Saturday, so the day consisted of dying my hair, sleeping, cleaning, and sleeping. Sunday morning before he left for work my boyfriend made me brea
  7. Here are some pictures from D.C. I totally spaced and forgot to post some. I also got THESEEEEEE off CL as I said... they are totally awesome. I wish the weights went up a little higher, but hey...for $25 I can't argue plus that's what the gym is for, right? These are for off-gym days; butterflies, rows, etc.
  8. If you go into MFP, under cardio, you can add"strength training". I don't know how much BBWW is strength training though, I skipped it and started going to the gym to lift. But it's a thought. You could get a heart rate monitor and log from that?
  9. I"m skipping this one... my body is all sorts of different because of my bypass surgery. But GO OTHER PEOPLE!!! YAY!!!
  10. There were more, exciting (not) monetarily draining occurrences in my life yesterday. I took my car in to get inspected. It's a 2012 Subaru Forester and it only has 17,500 miles on it. At the end of everything, it cost me $410. I wound up needing 2 new front tires. I have NO IDEA how that even happens at 17K... but I assume it's because instead of going to the garage I love and trust, I took my car to Meineke and they fucked me over. I paid for my inspection last year, an oil change, and a tire rotation. When my awesome (I will never NOT go back to this guy) man went to inspec
  11. I don't feel good about myself AT ALL right now. Out of ALL my goals that I set up for myself, the only thing I am getting 100% on is taking the stairs at work. I weight exactly the same as four weeks ago. I only went to the gym ONCE this week (Tuesday.) If I was busy to the point where I couldn't go, I would feel okay with that fact. But I had PLENTY of time to go at least once more. I had PLENTY of time to go for a jog, or do arm exercises with weights or bands, or anything and I didn't do anything. This week I fail, and it feels horrible. It feels horrible to the point where

  13. Yes! I went to the specialty running store BigM googled for me (Inside Track) and the guy had me do a bunch of walking to watch my gait and then talked a lot about proper lacing techniques. After about an hour, I wound up with Brooks Dymo (I believe it's dymo... maybe Dyno?) and 3 pairs of Zulu running socks. Everything is AWESOME... it makes SO MUCH difference!
