Exercise: Day 1

So, it’s summer.  And summer is bikini season.  And while I don’t buy into the hype that women need beach-ready bods (I mean, otherwise I’d actually try to get a beach-ready bod, you know, before bikini season), I like to feel good about myself.  And when I’m sporting a 31” waist and natural 34DDD which look more like 36 DD but who the fuck actually cares since they’re boobs and therefore wonderful I feel pretty good about myself.  

I’m still doing that.  But I want to feel better, not just psychologically, but physiologically as well.  This translates to exercise and eating better.  Today and this weekend aren’t really the best examples of me trying to eat better (Those days were filled with Southern grill-out fare and all manner of things chocolate between social functions and period).  But I did exercise today and yesterday.  

Yesterday, I went on a longish for BF and his little dog walk around the neighborhood.  Today, I did ~2 minutes of alternating kicks (I don’t know what else you would call it), 30 seconds of planking, 6 reps of inchworm (the thing where you walk with your hands), and… 30 reps of high knees (where 1 rep = high knee once with each knee).  

I feel woefully unfit.  At least strength and high-intensity workout-wise.  Because I can walk forever.  But I’m up and moving, and that’s what’s important.  I’ll just increase it a little every day, and with my added usual walking to and from work/school, I’ll have a little bit of high-intensity cardio and a little stength/muscle toning along with the recommended 30 minutes of light-moderate cardio 3-4 times a week.  

I might start intermittent fasting along with it by skipping lunch or having a small, healthy snack (I have like 9 oranges and 4 lbs of apples to eat).  But I definitely want to cutback/stop drinking soda again.  I’m good on the weekends, but work and school kill me with it.  So, tea and water is my mantra.  

So ends my babblings about fitness goals and eating habits that no one on the internet actually cares about.

Things I Love About You #001

You pull out a big-ass dictionary for our debate over whether or not any positive words exist that start with a silent letter “p”.  

All while being domestic, cooking dinner together.

Ok let’s figure this out folks. Why did I wake up to my dog spooning my head??? #SomethingSeriouslyWrongHere #ScaredToMove #WhyIsHisSituationNearMyEar #HeWasDedinitlyTheAggressor #OrMaybeHeJustThoughtMyHeadWasCold #Dog #Puppy #HelpMe

Maybe this is a poodle thing.  My mom’s toy poodle used to do this to me all the time as a kid.  #MissThatDoggy

Imagine if in “Frozen” when Anna’s heart finally freezes, Elsa, horror struck and filled with grief began to hold her and sing a reprise version of “Do You Want to build a Snowman.”
Cause I feel like it’d go like this:
Elsa: 
….Yes I wanna build a snowman….
…And ride our bikes around the halls…
…It’s because I cared for you….
…I hid from you…
…And now you took the fall….. 
 
…I wanted to protect you….
…Now look at you…
…Frozen by my own hands….
 
*Pauses looking at her hands*
 
…Yes I wanna build a snowman…
…And play outside in all the snow…
…I wanted just to hold you close….
…Open up my door…
…Because I loved you most…
 
…I was always lonely….
…Not anymore…
…Cause now I can finally see…
 
…I want to build a snowman …
…One more time Anna please………. 
*cries*

Am I the only one who, when they see, “asl?” they think, “American sign language”?

Fantastic Timing?

BF gave me a hickey today (more like a bruise) on my earlobe.  Because I like my ears being messed with, and he bit it.  

We’re both going to my parents’ tomorrow to celebrate my dad’s bday.  

It sounds like he’s a combination of proud and embarrassed.  Proud of the hickey, but embarrassed for me?

He can be embarrassed.  It took me 23 years to come home with a hickey.  My sister came home two years ago with a huge bruise on her neck - on Christmas - because her guy at the time decided that while he was giving her a hickey, he’d just go ahead and bite like he was trying to take a chunk out of her skin.  

Clearly, I have no reason to be embarrassed.
