Basically, my husband and I have just been going to the gym and the library to stay warm...then when we're at home, we are right in front of the fireplace. I checked out a bunch of books at the library the other day, so that keeps me busy. I am fine as long as I have my face in a book! I've already read a whole book in just a day and a half! There's not really much else to to...
Today I did have to train a couple of people at the gym...then it was leg day for me!! I hate hate hate hate hate hate leg day!!!! I have really skinny chicken legs, so I have to train legs hard and heavy, and it sucks! I was kind of week today, though-could only get 6 reps with 155 pounds on my squats. But that's okay cuz I did some walking lunges with 50 lbs before I squatted. But I do think that my legs have gotten a little bigger since I've been training them heavy. At least I hope so!! Why can't I just be like most women, and have bigger thighs and hips? I am shaped like a boy-NO hips, skinny legs, and a bigger upper body and midsection....ugh. Oh well.
Anyway...I guess there's not much else for me to write about....I am bored out of my mind...can't wait to have power back and be able to watch all my shows on tv! And to be able to fix my hair!!! My hair is very high maintenance...I HAVE to have a blowdrier in order for my hair to look decent. So I've been wearing a hat every day, and feel like I look like crap! This sucks...But I just gotta deal with it!!

But worst of all, we have no power! It is sooooooooo cold in our house, but luckily we have a fireplace I can camp out in front of. I don't know what I would do without that! I absolutely HATE HATE HATE the cold more than anything....so this is, like, torture to me! So far it's gotten down to 43 degrees in our house. EW. I am hating this. And I'm getting very tired of eating cereal and sandwiches! Tonight I think we're going to roast some hotdogs over the fire. That should be fun...
I just hope we get power back sooooooon....but they're saying it may be a week to 10 days!! I don't know how much more of this I can take!!

Sooo...lets hope it snows and snows and snows!
I know some people(well, a lot of people) hate exercising. And I just don't get it! We were MADE to move. Our bodies function better when we are active on a regular basis. I believe one reason people are so stressed, depressed, and lethargic is because of a lack of exercise. We were not made to sit around and eat junkfood all day! Of course we'll feel like crap when we do that, and we'll end up looking like crap, too!
I love to exercise. Now, I'm not a big cardio person, but I love love love lifting weights! I picked up my first pair of dumbbells when I was 12, and I haven't stopped lifting since. I've always been skinny and hated it. But when I started training with weights, I slowly saw my body transform, and I loved it! If I hadn't have started weight training at such a young age, I'm sure I would've been one of those "skinny fat" girls-scrawny, skinny and flabby with no muscle tone at all.
But because of weight training, I am lean, toned, and strong! I think what I love the most is being strong. People look and me and see how little I am and wouldn't expect me to be as strong as I am. It's funny to be at the gym and see the guys look at me when I pick up the 40 pound dumbbells, like, 'is she really gonna lift that?' Or how they stare when I'm squatting 165 pounds! It's rare to see a woman lifting more than 10 pounds in the gym because they're so scared they're going to look like a man. But I know better, and I'm not afraid to lift heavy!
People need to get off their butts and start moving!! Find something you enjoy, whether it's aerobics, kickboxing, tae-bo, karate, swimming, dancing, weight lifting or just walking-and see how much of a difference it will make in your life!

Thursday, January 22, 2009
-Cleaned the house
-Went to the gym(checked out Urban Active-that place is way too big) and trained shoulders and abs
-Went to the tanning bed
-Took my dog to run around in the field next to our subdivision
-Decided to try to make some chili (turned out okay-I DON'T cook!)
-Went to Meijers because I was having a chocolate and diet pepsi craving!
So that was my fun day today! That's a pretty typical, normal day for me. I really don't work much at all (I need another job!) so I have lot of time on my hands!
