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.

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?

List them!

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.

when im rich and famous, you can come work for me on my cat ranch.

you can come too

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

List my cats? Well, if you insist!

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.

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

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.
