i do love the gym. i almost didn't go. again. worn out, still mopey, crampy, and the weather was ASS when i left the office... if i hadn't been all self-indulgent and whiny last night, i wouldn't have. but i didn't want two nights in a row of sitting around, drinking and smoking, so i braved the roads, chugged some mild energy tonic, and got to it. so glad i did. i will likely not be able to move much tomorrow, but you'll have that.
oh, side note, TOTALLY almost got in an accident on the way there. some utter MORON decided to try and pull out in front of the car in front of me. they almost collided, and i almost collided into them. i instead slightly collided with the snowbank on the side of the road trying to stop in time. but it all worked out in the end. anyhoo.
breakfast was, as previously mentioned, yummy but didn't stick with me like i'd hoped.
about 1/4 cup oat blend, cooked in water with cinnamon, half a banana and most of a little empire apple (i bought apples yesterday! i missed them so) the rest of the apple i ate while waiting for the oats to cook
stirred in some blueberries after cooking, and my wheat germ/flax blend
topped with dark chocolate almond butter, my cherry preserves, and 1/4 cup fiber one
fruit-a-licious! oats always make me smile.
snack 1 (sorta - it was RIGHT before lunch so it should prolly be considered my appetizer) - clementine with my tea, as threatened in the woe is me post.
lunch was decent but i was really just going through the motions last night making it. kinda drunk.
wrap with sabra roasted red pepper hummus, canned chicken (salty. wow) and spinach. i warmed it up before eating, because i seriously craved hot food. and my carrots. always carrots. if i run out of baby carrots, i spaz out.
i also had a couple bites of wasabi roasted edamame. nice little texture/flavor switch there.
snack 2 - slice of bread, some natch more and cinnamon to fuel the workout. and a speedy 'latte'
snack 3 - i just keep eating scoops of protein powder in my car. i've actually grown to like it. the textures get all interesting. digging it out of my teeth isn't fun, though.
dinner - a relatively 'meh' salad, due to my poorness and lack of produce. romaine blend, spinach, carrots, and some soy-marinated baked tofu... which was actually really good. and italian dressing. and a bite of the pizza that the rest of the fam ate. it was decent, but it was multiple-meat and tasted very strongly of pepperoni grease so stopping at one bite was pretty easy, even though i'm still kind of hungry and LURVE ME SOME PIZZA.
workout (again... i really should have taken notes. memory fail)
20 minutes on the stairmaster (aerobic training program, level 10) to 'warm up'. and almost die a little. but i do love the stairmaster.
chest press - 10x40, 15x50, 10x60, 5x70, 5x70, 10x60, 15x50
lat pull - 10x40, 5x50, 5x50, 10x40 (it seems like i did more than this, but i'm not sure)
bicep curl - 10x25, 15x30, 10x35, 10x35, 15x30 (something like this)
row - 10x30, 10x40, 5x50, 3x55, 5x50, 10x40
pec fly (alternating with the delt fly) - 10x20, 15x30, 10x40
delt fly - 10x20, 10x30, 5x40
i wanted to pyramid back down, but i didn't think i could.
did some stretching to finish out the night, chatted with Jose and flirted with Bryan, and then was on my merry way. almost went and tanned, but i plan to do that friday and i don't want to be snooky. i hate that i know who that is. but ONLY because of facebook.
speaking of snooky. there is a girl who works at my gym that is slowly morphing into her.
on the way home, my mom texted asking where i was. i thought she was concerned. no, she wanted me to stop and buy her alcohol. nice. she handed me the 'no funds' excuse, but still wanted me to. that ALMOST ruined my endorphin high. i'm not sure what to do with the annoyance, so we haven't spoken since i got home. i think she went all resourceful and found a way to be drunk anyway.
oh, and i still haven't heard. left a voice mail this morning, no call back. i guess if it was a flat 'no' they'd have gotten back to me by now? i am ENTIRELY too impatient to play this waiting game. i know they didn't call my reference, which actually makes me feel better 'cause if they'd asked him my weaknesses, the most obvious one to come out of him would not be well received. but now he knows how not to answer that question should he be asked it.
