J-E-L-L-O....

When I'm bored, I look things up on the internet. My favorite thing to do, is go to petfinder.com and torture myself by looking at the homeless animals that I could have. If I could afford it, I'd adopt one of everything. But as it is, my pets cost me a small fortune! Well, make that a rather large fortune. They are totally worth it though. I think I might have a problem. (I use to have FIVE cats) (Actually at one time I had 6 cats, and 2 litters of kittens!)


This past week, I looked up Jello. My coworkers wanted to make some punch with Jello in it. Um, no. I was all like "I don't eat Jello. For obvious reasons. Like, it's made from horse hooves." Turns out it's more like animal bones and hides. Call me traditional, I don't like to eat things I can't recognize. When we have food day, I don't like hot dogs, or sausages, or meatballs, or Jello. To me, I'm easy. I like chicken and turkey, and 99.9% of all veggies and beans. Anyways, I found this on snopes, they still do make Jello with animal parts. It's good to know when you don't like animal parts. I remember the manfriend's brother told me they stopped making Jello with animal parts, but he lied.


Don't get me wrong, I'll swallow the occasional Jello shot whole if I have to. Cus I'm a trooper. And, alchohol makes you do stupid things. But we won't list those just yet.

I woke up this morning, and I'm still sore. I have been sore from working out, endured many a blister on blister on blister....stiffness. But this, is like nothin I've ever endured. AND I WORKOUT 5 DAYS A WEEK! It blows my mind. I can't imagine a person who doesn't work out starting this class, but they are there too!

My scale says I lost 4lbs. Only, I didn't weigh myself on my scale at home after I weighed in at the gym, to see how different it may be. But, according to my scale since Tuesday, I lost 4lbs. In two days. I'm hoping it's more according to their scale!!! I havn't lost any weight beyond the typical 10 lbs up and down in MONTHS! I may have breaken thru the plateau!

I havn't really done anything different.....except bootcamp. I did have a cocktail yesterday. But I didn't have beer. (I also had a mini almond joy.....but I totally needed it! I'm PMS'ing and it was my only cheat!) So, it's a change. I usually only drink on the weekends anyway so that can't even be counted as a "difference". I weigh in tomorrow after another grueling class. And, today I'll do my usual 45 min lunchtime workout. I can tell a difference in my pants already. Two classes. I'm thinking it may be worth the 85 a month, and I might make some sacrifices and join for a second month.

At least I'll do 1 class pay as you go per week, and that will be $40 a month.

P.S. There is chili at work today. Work makes the yummiest chili in the universe. I mean...freaking delicious! I am having a salad. As much as I want the chili. I'd rather not do 850 jumping jacks for the rest of my life. THAT is worth the sacrifice.

I love petfinder. All those little kittens that I want to adopt.

I will so be the old lady with all the cats.

Heather said...

I'd never be able to look at petfinder. I'd want them all. When I retire, I want to be the crazy cat lady.

I haven't been very good about counting my calories. I've gained three pounds back.

Guys need an excuse like PMS so I can eat candy and not feel bad. Can you work on that for me?

I am impressed that you workout on your lunch break. I use that time to sit on my ass and blog.

Maxie said...

I look at petfinder too-- and I dream of adopting all the cats and just lounging around with them all day.

yes, I am obviously a freak.

Those trainer people are like gods. They really do make a difference. I skipped my weekly workout with my trainer three weeks in a row and I felt so fat! Then I worked out with him one time and my clothes felt better and I felt back to normal. It's unbelievable.

allison:

heather:
you can come too

Narm:
boys have PMS. You totally get it too, don't hate.

So:
List my cats? Well, if you insist!

Lbluca77:
well, we have a gym at work, and I have to walk like 50 steps to get there so I have no excuse! Plus it allows me to go home after work.

Maxie:
You may also work at my cat ranch. Good people are hard to find@

damsel:
I know, what is it? i think its the fact that you push yourself harder. its so much easier to give up when you work out alone.
