Yo! Happy Friday to my homies! It’s been a long, long week. I’m really excited about being off tomorrow. I’m exhausted. Unfortunately, my day tomorrow will be spent cleaning up my house and defleaing it. Yes, Giovanni has fleas and ticks. The horror!
I’m kind of all over the place today, so I’m just going to dive into it.
I’ve had a decent week of running and working out so far. I’ve got in 1x 30 minute run and 2 x weights. Tonight I’m doing some sort of boxing workout with my friend, Toilet. So, I’ve decided not to run this morning since I’m pretty sure this workout is going to kick my ass. That means my weekend of workouts will look like this:
- 1 x boxing/MMA style workout
- 1 x 4-5 mile long run (ha ha ha)
- 1 x 30 minute easy run
- 1 x weights
- 1 x swim
Looking at it like that, that’s a lot of working out. However, the swim will only be about 400 yards or so since I’m still getting my swimming lungs back. So, I figure I can lift and swim at the same time.
Speaking of lifting…I kind of sort of hate doing it. The one weight workout I did this week was in the house using a Jackie Warner DVD. It totally kicked my ass. This weekend I’m going to start doing this workout from Stumptuous. It’s a good beginner workout and seems to get you in and out of the gym quickly. It’s a full body workout which I prefer. (Who has time to work different body parts on different days? Not me. I have a life.)
We’ll see how it goes.
My Hate Read/Favorite Place to Troll
I know many of you have favorite hate reads. Most of them are Healthy Living Blogs. I glance at those sometimes, but for the most part I just don’t get them. I don’t care to see anyone’s picture of oatmeal or read about their mediocre workout. (However, I will bore you with my mediocre workouts.) For the most part, I find all of these girls to be BORING, over-privileged, and not very smart.. Most of my blog reading is kept to runners.
When I first started going to GOMI, it was a wonderfully snarky place where like-minded people could snark on these women’s blogs (as well as others such as Dooce, but really how hard is it to snark on Dooce? So. Much. Hate.) However, as time went on, the Healthy Living Blog section has become a forum for people that are now allegedly recovered from ED’s.
Reading these boards makes me insane. Yet, I still do it. Why? I have no idea. It seems that many of the board members think that it’s their job to diagnose everyone as having either an ED or as a compulsive exerciser. Further, most of these women are batshit insane. Just because you saw some loser blogger do something doesn’t mean that you need to do it. AND…they seem to think that HLB’s discovered everything healthy.
Take it from an old school hippie/vegetarian chick: PEOPLE HAVE BEEN JUICING, DRINKING GREEN SMOOTHIES, RUNNING 100 MILE WEEKS, AND EATING CHIA SEEDS SINCE LONG BEFORE THE HLB’S.
Seriously, the place is insufferable. That’s why you’ll find my little ass trolling it hard. When I’m feeling extra bitchy I just go in there and drop cunty little tidbitsand then bail out. It’s all very meta when you think about it.
With that….I’m out!
