I was SO unmotivated today. I ate 6 (yes.... 6) brownies on Sunday and was totally feeling it/regretting it since. I also got up at 4:30am. So after work, I had NOTHING left. Soooo.... I went to every class they offered tonight at my gym. Two spin classes....

Monday 4/23/12 NOMFC

Spin :30 with Patrick

...Then I did one set of leg extensions and walked right back into the class room.

"Total Package Training" (super fast paced weights/core.... full body, lots of planks): :45
Spin: :30 with Jim
Core :20 with Jim

That's comforting! I've been doing pretty well for a while now. I eat ALL day, though. Since starting all of this I'm ALWAYS hungry. My students have taken to calling me the "Mary Poppins of Produce" because I'll just pull out random vegetables (or hummus or homemade larabars or clif bars) and eat them... one after another.

I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained any, either. I think I'm kind of at that point. I'm not going to lose a whole lot, especially with trying to gain mass (which I still feel like people at my gym are mocking me for....).

I did chest and (some) legs yesterday. I was so exhausted from the first two leg exercises that I totally slacked (pretty intentionally) on the next two... and omitted extensions and curls completely.

I think I have acquired two random spotters at my gym...

Went to the doctor yesterday because my inhalers weren't working so well. So now I'm on crap they give people with COPD. Huzzah. I don't like taking medicine, but I also don't want to die during spin class. It's SO frustrating. He took me off of one and onto another because the one was "not good for your heart over time". #^@*%@&)@ How long have I been on that?!?!

Anyway. He also took blood and urine to test stuff. I have been bruising a LOT. I have been taking an iron supplement, and I cook with cast iron, along with raisins and greens and so on... so I can't see it being that, right?

Anyway, yesterday's workout:

WU: Push-ups: 15, 15, 15
DB Incline Bench: 15x15, 20x12, 25x10, 20x12, 12, 12
(my back and shoulders really hurt from the total body class yesterday. I was surprised. But, I feel like it may have effected this a bit.)
DB Flat Bench: 20x8, 10, 6, 15x15, 20x10, 10
DB Decline Bench: 15x20, 20x10, 15x12, 20x4, 15x12, 16(with help of random... volunteer spotter)
DB Incline Fly: 15x11, 9, 8, 8

BB Squat: 45x15, 65x15, 85x12, 105x8, 8, 85x12, 65x15
Stiff Leg Deadlift: 45x15, 65x15, 85x15, 105x12, 12, 115x7
(By the end of this, my hands/forearms give out before anything else, but I feel like it's not enough weight for wraps?)
Seated Leg Press Machine: 135x8, 8, 8
Standing Single Hamstring Curl: 15x8, 8, 8

No no, she's really funny. I'll be eating a banana and she'll be like "Uh, is that VEGAN?!" She's a good kid. I posted that I was trying avocado oil on my face as a moisturizer last night on twitter and she asked if it was vegan.

It's kind of cool being a teacher and vegan. My kids are SO educated about veganism. They ask questions all of the time. They even try my stuff (when I'm willing to share). I told them that I'll make a vegan feast before they graduate. :-)

:-( It's so sad that kids are subject to their parents'/environment's habits.

I, myself, was raised on Burger King, wendy's, McDonalds.......... Yeahhhh... My family is VERY slowly coming around. I'm eating more for holidays than the one dry potato that I used to get.

I don't think they're laughing at me because I'm vegan (but maybe they are... I don't care about that. I love proving people wrong) I'm just not MUSCULAR, and I'm a GIRL *gasp*. The area I live in is very.... Midwest.

Also, anything I've done has been guesswork... and reading from here, VBB site, bodybuildling.com or friends. .... but mostly trial and error. (so if I'm doing something stupid, feel free to tell me.)

Wednesday 4/25/12 NOMFC

Spin: :45 with NEW inhaler.... I didn't need my emergency inhaler ONCE! I can't express what that means to me. This has been a problem since Junior High. I'll be 29 next month. It was amazing.

BB Bi Curl: 30x10, 8, 8, 8
Alt DB Curl: 15x8, 8, 8, 10
Alt Hammer:15x8, 8, 8, 8

Overhead Tri Press: 25x10, 10, 10, 10

Then, I was inspired by Synny to get Thai food last night. SO good... but got a little worried when I said no fish sauce and got a blank look..... She called someone else over.

I forgot my book at home today. Arg.

Either way... I lifted back and shoulders, Spin class, ab class and yoga. I did manage to get a "so THAT'S your secret" from this (super gym-considerate and respectful) guy after spin. I was mixing protein in the water fountain because I felt like my stomach was going to cave in if I didn't eat something.

He doesn't know I'm vegan. Haha.

I'm sure he was totally just being nice, but it was nice!

I have been feeling more toned lately. I've had a couple of comments from friends, but they know that I'm working out. I want a comment from someone who has no idea. That's my goal. :-P

Makes me think of this thing I saw online once. My friend gets asked all of the time, "Do you work out?" ...Uh, no...!??! But this said:

"No, I got these muscles from constantly applying lip gloss."

Anyway, I'll post yesterday when I can.

I ate HORRIBLY this weekend.... and got up at 4..... then went on a field trip with the business/marketing classes to Browns stadium, so I was really beat at the end of the day. The upstairs of my house has been VERY neglected, so I skipped the gym, took the most amazing hour nap of my life and then cleaned for the rest of the night. Not good for my body, but great for my mental focus when I see it clean.

I also have a cold sore that is growing?! I've had the stupid thing for a WEEK and it's GROWING?! *angry face*.

Sooo.... hopefully back on track today. Maybe a bit of punishment through taking some cardio classes.... but most of them aren't cardio today and the one that is is usually cancelled by lack of attendees. We'll see.

I have had NO energy lately. I've had a cold sore since a week and a half ago and yesterday... it decided to get bigger?! I also had three welts... one on my face, two on my neck. What!? So, all I did were back and shoulders yesterday. Then I went home, steamed some veggies and relaxed a bit.

I DID, however, get a continuing contact with my school! This is good news. :-) After you ask for one... you can also be let go for absolutely no reason.

The cold sore is now in its original spot.... random spots around my chin... and now the bottom left part of my lip is swollen with two dots. I'm about to RIPMYFACEOFF... but I'm guessing that would be slightly more gruesome. It looks like I have acne or something. The welts, however, are lighter. I'm wondering if this is from using avocado oil on my face?? I'm super-negative-reaction girl.

So I guess it's not a cold sore... nor is it even viral... according to the dr.

Good news: I don't have leukemia and I'm not anemic. I also have higher than average HDL and Low LDL cholesterol (I didn't fast... does that effect it?)

Bad news: My overall cholesterol was 131 a year ago... it was 161 this time (again, not fasting?). He was still shocked as to how low it was, though. He has NO idea why I bruise like a 90 year old and he thinks I have *insert big words* on my face... which was perio-something dermatitis.... which (in my head) translates to "something is wrong with the skin around your mouth". Well, duh.

He gave me a steroid cream that I "shouldn't use for more than a week, because it'll thin my skin and expose blood vessels".... Might not fill this one.... that FREAKS me out....... He also gave me an antibiotic. He looked perplexed... but said it looks like that (face thing)... which is similar to acne?! What? I'll be 29 on the 19th.... and I've never had skin issues.

Bad skin karma?

Anyway....
