Tonight is a night I wish I had someone special in my life. Have to stay up all night to keep work schedule but have no one to talk to, hold or cuddle with. Would just love some companionship....

Went heavy on chest tonight and thinking work might suck in the morning lol. Hit a new personal best on incline dumbbell press. Really starting to feel beastly again. Used the smith machine tonight for bench press even though I am not fond of it. I dread my job and will probably start looking for another one or really push to get my butt back in school. Really thinking about also getting into being an online coach because well I have been there and done that and can probably really help others. Will be checking into it more closely cause ya never know right? Ready for Wednesday to get here so I can go thrash my legs :)

Ok so I am starting to feel changes in the air... warmer weather for longer periods of time and shorter fewer cold days, green thumb itching like crazy and my taste buds are starting to do the spring changes. Almost time for yummy raw foods!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to minimize them right now because nothing is in season right now and I don't want to spend a fortune. I am thinking it is really time to invest in a greenhouse that I can heat and use UV lamps to simulate summer so I can grow all year around OR I can just move to a place I can garden most of the year lol. I have some almonds soaking overnight so I can try my hand at making almond milk. I think I am going to throw in dates and vanilla so I had better get dates soaking so they are nice and mushy by the time I get home lol. I love making my own stuff cause I know there is no crap in it I don't want!

Figured only way to prepare for half marathon is to run as much as possible :) I have 9 runs I plan on doing this year but always on the lookout for more. Have a feeling I will have a wall of metals if I keep this up lol

Last night sucked!!! Went to deadlift and couldn't even hit my pb!!! Back is tight and spasms which means... time for a new mattress!!! My bed sucks and have been dealing with back issues with it for a long time. Guess I will break down and buy a new one just hope I can find one that isn't to pricy.

Here is a tip on mattress buying, its a great one but it isn't for everyone. I buy mattresses from the big dealers like mattress land, mattress world, etc but I buy the showroom models. My last mattress was on sale for 1400 and I got it for only 350. Its still new, no one has slept on it or dirtied it up at all, its just been laid and sat on with the plastic still on it for a couple of months. Can't beat the price if you want to get a good quality mattress set.

Thanks Dylan!!! Luckily I only have a twin size bed so my mattress will be cheaper

Ugh, I hear you on the mattress. Sleeping on a bad one is awful. Unfortunately the one that my wife and I thought was comfortable when we tried it in the store turned out not to be. I had back pain for 9 months while I adjusted to sleeping on it. My wife wasn't as uncomfortable at the start, but neither of us sleep that well on it now (it's only 3 years old). Moral of the story - take your time and be absolutely sure it's the right mattress! Sleep is important!

First 5k done and my sports tracker tracked the run as 5.46k..... Mind you my sports tracker is set to metric and was giving me feed back the whole run. My time was 35:17 min 228th out of 529 people, 134th out of 358 women and 26th out of 60 in my age group. Mind you the wind chill was below freezing so was suffering from frozen toes making it hard to run. Won't complain about my run
