Well Blow Me Down....

Of course, I have to start out with a ...."yayyy"! I'm so happy about the election. It's exciting to see so many people excited about the future of the country, that is what gets me. Let's see how this pans out! I'm pretty sad that in Ohio our casino didn't pass...again. Especially with all the jobs being lost. People are freaking stupid, and terrified of gambling. Here's a thought. Don't do it if you don't like it.

Today, I feel like I got hit by a car. Everything hurts. I mean, everything. We didn't do crunches and my abs hurt. We didn't do weights, but my arms hurt. Last night I went to an earlier class, and if it's possible, it was harder. We did of course, the 850 jumping jacks. (complimentary of every class) I tried to do some modified, because my legs hurt so bad, I thought, if I fall down because my legs give out, I hope they don't trample me. I was on my second set of modified jacks, and the girl in front of me turned around and told me to "come on, you can do it...don't stop" and counted out the jacks out for me, and did hers facing me until we finished. I wanted to kick her, but it really helped. And I thought...I'm stronger than I gave myself credit for. I kinda rock!

I wanted to vomit. I worked out so hard I could've puked. This reminded me of the biggest loser, when Jillian says if you're not puking keep going. I used breath to push it away, sort of a meditation (if you can call it that with horrific pain in your legs). After all those jacks, and lunges and squats, and stupid stability ball work, we did a thing where you run to the left, squat, jumping jacks, run to the right and repeat. We did that 25 times. I seriously had tears in my eyes. I would never survive the military. They were all counting it out happily doing military-type sing songs. I thought, these bitches are crazy! Someone has warped their minds!

When I got home I could barely walk. I had to go up and down my steps sideways. One at a time. Then I had to clean my carpets, and do my dishes, and clean the rabbit cage, and do a load of laundry. Once I laid down, I was out like a light. I took ibuprofin today and I'm feelin a little better! I also had done a 3 mile walk on lunch yesterday. I'll do another one today. The walking seems to help loosen up the soreness.

I get to see my cute manfriend tonight! I'm excited! I don't get to enjoy a cocktail though. It'll be worth it when I drop 20lbs this month. It's good to have dreams! There are several girls who did that in their first month. It will be mine...oh yes......it will be mine!

It's really good that you're doing it, even if it does hurt like hell. I have got to get my ass back in the gym.

YAY! Excellent job! I'm comming with you next week.

That casino thing.. it was a bad deal for us. Did you read about it? Basically if another casino opens up the tax rate changes to that of the new one... so what they planned on doing is opening up an Indian casino after the first one got in. Then the rate would be like tiny and we wouldn't benefit. I'll vote for it, if it's a good deal for Ohio. This one wasn't.

Seriously. I think the world should suffer too, get with it!

I dont care about taxes, I care about jobless folks mooching up my income with welfare in this great state! It would've created jobs.

I have to admit I am a little jealous I love to work out... just haven't put it into my new schedule yet!! and I love the Biggest Loser!

And why do we feel like puking when we're pushed really hard? I just don't get it.

I never understood why they kept casinos away - they are such money makers for the cities, for the citizens and so forth. It is a total win/win situation for everyone!

And damn girl, wtg on the workout - although it sounds a bit painful :-)

And of course YAY on the new President :-)
