another edition

Its another edition of "what not to do at the gym" according to me!!

1. Please. (thats right I started with please, that means you need to listen) If you're going to walk on the treadmill, I applaud you for getting your relatively skinny butt to the gym, BUT (yep, its capitalized, that means something important comes next) please do not read a book while you are walking slower than my Great Aunt Edna who's bedridden and senile (no i dont have one, I'm just trying to be descriptive. you the point home). You just end up looking ridiculous. Especially since you're reading a BOOK at the GYM.

2. Do not talk on the cell phone at the gym. JUST DONT. Seriously. They should have a box you put your phone in if you take it near a treadmill. Or maybe if you're caught talking on the phone during a workout session, you get banned from the gym until you can prove that you're not codependent to whomever it was you were speaking to. That could be awhile, and I'm ok with that.

3. There is NO NAKED in the locker room. I dont care. I don't want to see your boobies. If however you do decide to be naked, or nearly naked, I will ask you to PLEASE refrain from speaking to ANYONE else until you are fully dressed. I mean it. Next time I'm stealing your clothes and running out to the parking lot with them. If you're so comfy with the nude-ness, what's a little more public nudity??

4. Have you learned nothing? Tanning is bad. It also smells. And I hear it gives you cancer.

5. Last but not least. If you dont come to the gym to break a sweat, please stay home. Please and thank you. We are all here to better ourselves..not to look pretty. Oh, and if you're not going to break a sweat by working out, I suggest a parka rather than those itty bitty shorts. You just look silly.

You're welcome.

update, update, update!

You might be wondering how I'm doing with the gym. Its going quite well. Last week we went Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and had every intention on going over the weekend or Friday, but it just didn't come together. Monday I was exhausted and Jacob needed to get his phone fixed, so this week we went Tuesday, Wednesday, and I went by myself today and K and I are going tomorrow! Wooo hooo!! I'm not sure where I am weight wise. I thought I would have lost more by now, but I'm trying to get motivated regardless. As far as I know I've only lost about a pound, but I've been a lot better about my deit this week, so I'm hoping this week will be kinder on the scale! We'll see!
It's getting easier and easier to convince myself to actually go, so that's good.

Anyway....what else has been going on?? hmmm....not a lot. School basically. I'm not hating it as much this semester. I actually enjoy a couple of my classes. We'll see how I feel once finals come around :).

A little while ago I blogged that we were thinking about getting a new car, and well, we did!! We bought a 2007 Chevy Tahoe. I LOVE IT! Omg. I thought I was going to HATE it. But I sooo dont. I love it so much. Believe it or not, its fun to drive! I thought it was going to be like driving a bus. But its really not. It honestly handles better than my old car, an 02 Altima. We still have the Altima, Jacob is driving her. Thats right, her. Her name is J. Lo, cuz she has a booty. I'm still struggling with what to name my truck. Im honestly still deciding if its a boy or a girl. Jacob and K seem to think its a boy. I'm not convinced. It could be a she. Nobody said big trucks couldnt be girls!! But most likely, yeah, its a boy. Hmmm...I'll keep thinking about it. I was hoping it would just come to me, but it took a couple years to name J.Lo. I'm pretty sure she got her name from me and Sarah. So he doesnt need a name right away. And yes, Jacob thinks its crazy I name my cars. We never named his. I know I'm crazy. Its ok.

Ok..thats it..I dont have much to say, thats pretty much why I havent posted lately.

Last but not least, a picture!!
My little cowboy!! And yes, that is his smile. I dont know what that kid was thinking, but hey, he's 7!

The Duggars are NOT allowed at my gym

OK. First, before I get to the real reason for this post, I made it to the gym! Not only did I make it TO the gym, I worked out for an hour...all cardio! Thats right, I did cardio for AN HOUR! 30ish minutes on the tredmill (and by ish I mean I'm pretty sure I did more, but I'm rounding down) and 30 minutes on the stationary bike. WHEW! That was a work out if I do say so myself! With only an hour to work out on days that we go at night, I think that until I've lost a little more weight, I'll stick to cardio for 45 minutes to an hour, eventually getting to 30 or 40 minutes of cardio and the rest of the hour doing weights. But right now, my butt needs cardio! LITERALLY! haha

ok. Now, on to the reason for this post.

If you are going to become a gym member, or are a gym member I think it is important that you understand that there are certain cardinal rules you should strive not to break. They range from fashion no-no's to no-no's that should mean you have to surrender your card at the door before you exit.

What I observed tonight....

--Please. If you're going to bring your kids to the gym, maybe you should only have had 2. I'm just saying. 3 is pushing it but MAYBE I'll let you get away with it if I like you, and if the fact that you have your 3 kids in the kids zone doesn't make me wait 15 minutes to get my kid in because they are at capacity. OY. (this is just a small infraction, one that is forgivable since people are pretty attached to their kids...but just think about obviously spend some time at home doing cardio if you've got 3 kids...maybe you can cut it back when youre at the just saying)

--Ladies. Just because girls in magazines do it, or because you did it when you played volleyball does NOT mean you should wear black spandex short/underwear looking things to work out in. They are NOT flattering, and yes, if you had it, I could see your cellulite. Just remember that for when you finally birth a child. And yes, spandex capris count too. Oh and black shows sweat too, just so you know. lol

--No. Those trash bag looking things that make you sweat more don't work, and they make you look like an idiot. Yes, they make you sweat. But there is a funny thing about sweat. If you sweat too much, or pretty much at all, your body forces you at some point to replace that water. So basically you get to lose that water weight for about a day. Then your body makes you drink it all back in. With some exceptions I know. And then all your left with is you, at the gym, looking like a damn fool.

--Full eyeshadow and all...should not be worn to the gym. Unless your name is RuPaul. Meaning youre a tranny, then I will make an exception and possibly invite you over for dinner.

--Talking on the cell phone while you're hogging the BEST treadmill in the place makes a chubby girl angry. Especially if you're using it to WALK. And even more if you're a skinny B. Go use the regular treadmill and let me, chubbs, use the one that has better shock absorption for all the body mass I shove on my joints when I make my legs go fast and pretend its running.

--Reading a book while on the treadmill walking at the pace of a child who just learned to walk is unacceptable if all the treadmills are full. And please, tell me why, if you're walking so damn slow, do you need one of the precious few towels our lovely gym establishment seems to have? Afraid your book is going to break a sweat?

--Do not go from stationary bike to stationary bike wondering why they wont work. Then dont listen when I tell you how to work it. Pedal, Push Start, Select Program. I'm thinking thats on the machine somewhere garbage bag wearing, full face of makeup having lady.

OK. I think that about sums up my gym experience for the day. I'm telling you. OY! Oh and want motivation? Listen (or read the closed captioning..dude dont ever let me do that..I would be terrible AND I would "accidentally" curse alll the time..especially when certian people were on TV lol) to Obama talk about the bailout. Now that is some kind of motivation. It might make you want to scream, but hey..the tredmill only goes so fast and you have to breathe at some point right? lol

C'mon Ya'll

Seriously. Ya'll. C'mon. Why didn't anyone tell me I had gotten HUGE?

You are my people. No one pulled me aside for a chit chat to tell me I was packing on the lb's.

I'm so disappointed. Of course not at ya'll, much. lol. I'm disappointed in myself! I was in decent shape right before the wedding, then it all went down hill! OMG now I'm frigging HUGE. I've gained roughly 10 pounds. Or so said the scale at the gym. (more like 12 but whatev). My scale at home only says I gained 6. But I'm a friggin hiefer.

So I'm recommiting to the gym. I'll post on here regularly about my progress, and you guys can keep me accountable. PLEASE! I need it. Somebody has to yell at me when I stay home to sleep under the gise of staying home to "read" for criminal procedure. Cuz lets be real. I dont ever end up reading as much as I need to. I end up sleeping until 11 or 1130, getting my ass outta bed, ready for school and my heart POUNDS during class just praying I wont get called on. So. I need to get my act together! Gym--4 or 5 times a week. I bought the dang membership, and so did Jacob. We ought to use it.

I propose
Gym--Monday and Wednesday evening--just cardio; Tuesday and Thursday morning--cardio and strength training and Saturday--maybe take a class or cardio and weights.

Sounds doable. Jacob can go on Monday Wednesday and Saturday...and he could probable convince me to go with him on Friday if all I had to do was the elliptical :)

Ok so as of this morning (I'm so not weighing right now, I've put away WAY too much today due to it being "that time of the month" and the only thing that seems to work is eating and sleeping..)

I weighed 66.2 kilos

My dad is coming in town at the end of the like 2 weeks. I wanna weigh 64.4 kilos (or lose 3 pounds) more than that would be GREAT. But I'm trying to be realistic.

By May I'd like to weigh between 61.2 kilos and 58.9 kilos. That would mean I need to lose between 10 and 15 pounds.

Thats totally doable...right??

I'll keep checking in...and if I dont, feel free to yell at me. :) Matter of fact, PLEASE yell at me!

That is all...Hope everyone is doing well...I have some updating to do, but for now its just a post about being a girl with body image issues :)

Totally me. I know..Stupid. I'm not making light of it either, but I've tried acting all "I love my body" and it never works. I just end up in a funk, which leads to eating, which NEVER HELPS. Seriously if anybody knows how to break the cycle, lemme know.
