I want to collapse.
128.2 this morning.
After running for four miles or more on Tuesday (working out once in the morning, once at night, plus, doing EXTRA cardio/weights on top of that), doing a 30 minute go on a stairclimber at a high rate of pace on Wednesday, and yeah...granted, I did eat last night. Way too much. I had a bowl of cereal, then I had a big orange, a steak and cheese quesadilla from El Pollo Choke-It, and then a serving of orange ruffy, brocolli and cheese, 1 1/2 slices of white bread with butter, and three cookies. And a chocolate bare. wonder I went from 125.4 to 128.2. Jeebus.

I have an exam today.
I'm hoping to take it before I get off work. I want to work out a little before bed.

Also, I have discovered something called a bodybugg. All the other trainers at my gym have one, and it monitors your calories burned (via body temp, heart rate, age, weight, etc.), calories consumed, steps taken, and oxygen consumption (I believe). You set a goal for how many calories to burn in a day, and it beeps when you reach it. It also does the same for steps. You have to TELL IT what you eat, and it puts it into an online database, accessible for a monthly subscription fee. I think I want it only for the calories burned/pedometer/goal thing, because I wouldn't want anyone to see what I eat. That scares the living hell out of me.
But I've been twitchy. If I could just know how much I burn in a day, then I could perfectly tailor my consumption. A lot of the reviews I've been looking at it say it's pretty spot on, but some of the trainers aren't too excited about it, while others swear by it. I might ask my boss if I can hijack his for a week just to see, and maybe then decide. The thing costs upwards of $300 after taxes, so yeah. Maybe I can convince someone to buy it for me....hmmm XD

It's between that, and a netbook, since I'm tired of lugging around my laptop everywhere.
Choices, choices...I can't afford either, really.
But the BodyBugg will be more useful and conducive to not being a fatass.

I'll see if I can get my boss to let me borrow it and tell all of you about it then.

No pictures. I'm not on my home computer, but the work one, so I can't really do anything about it. Can't bring my big laptop to work anymore, since it's not very easy to hide, and the battery and cord are close to kicking it. Hohum.

Stay strong, girlies.
Wish me luck.
And hope this up in weight isn't actual gain, but just a fluke of water weight and grossness.



  1. you'll lose that weight in no time ! great job on all that exercise though .. might me muscle gaining?

  2. Have you tried looking see if they have cheap(er) ones on ebay?

  3. I envy your job with so much treefrog green you could use me as a traffic light!

    Go collapse into bed. You sound like you deserve a good night's sleep!


  4. i'm not an expert, but it sounds like you've been working out super hard (as of late)... and maybe, just maybe, your extra weight could be MUSCLE gained, and not fat gained? we can always hope?
