Blek (literally)

Not feeling well.  Puking up whatever I’ve eaten the past month.  Be back in a couple of days.  I’ll lurk, but posting will have to take a backseat while I get caught up on my work tomorrow and Wednesday.

Going to go watch Cartoon Network, now.

I still feel sick, but after close to 24 hours of throwing up (violently), I can finally stomach some nice cold ginger-ale and some soup.  I feel like someone has hit me in the head with a bat a few million times and every muscle aches.  I have a slight fever, so that might be why.   I’ll be back for the next caption contest.  I have to totally change my lesson plans and get caught up with school-work.  I’m not going in, tomorrow, though.  Just not feeling well.

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Simply put, there is just no other way.

Weighin’ In

a-acarFluid girl is back!  YAY!  I’m up four pounds this week.  It’s all good, because I know it is fluid.  Aside from yesterday’s cheesesteak, which is probably weighing me up (heh), I ate really, really well.

I had my afterschool activities the past week and a half, and I tend to really go up the fluid scale when that happens.  I went back through my weight log, and when I am at school until 6-6:30 p.m., my weight is up for the weight reports I do (as are the leg cramps).  I think I’m still a little swollen from Thursday’s visit to see Pinboy, too.  No, he wasn’t beating me up or anything; I just worked really hard.

Earlier in the week, I was able to endure the treadmill incline of 14 at 2.2 mph.  That burned 250 calories in 15 minutes.  That was pretty cool, and Pinboy turned things down a bit after that, since it is not something I should do for a long period of time at first–build up to it.  Thursday, however, I really pushed.

Pinboy had me working against my body.  I did three sets of 30 squats while holding a 12 lb. medicine ball.  Then, he had me do something that will really improve my ability to go up and down steps.  Pinboy put a two-foot step/platform thing next to the wall for me to go up and down like stairs.  I need a railing for stairs.  If the railing is on the left I do pretty well, if the railing is on the right, I can only go up one step at a time, one foot at a time.  If there is no railing, I need a wall and hope for the best.  So, I tried putting my hands against the wall in front of me, but I think the resulting angle made it a no-go for launch.  It is not that I didn’t want to do it, either.  I really want to get my legs back to normal.   But, a combination of me favoring my right leg for so long and not healing right keep haunting me.  However, Pinboy had an idea:  he put the step in front of a support beam that runs from the ceiling to the floor.  I put my hands up on it and grabbed for dear life as I went up (ended up with an arm workout, too).  I thought I’d be cute and lead with my left; however, Pinboy caught on to my ways, and he had me concentrate on always leading with my right, so that I can work on its strength and my ability to go up steps.  I did one set of twenty leading with the left and then Pinboy had me do two sets of ten with the right.  He had me sit down in between sets for about a minute.  During that time we had a chance to talk about my progress and that he thinks doing these things will help boost the weight-loss.  He said it will take a while, he used the word patience and that he has plenty of it for me.  I bring this up for a reason:  I lack patience with myself in a lot of things that I do.  However, this is one area where I know I have to be nothing but “go-with-the-flow.”  I sometimes feel that others are annoyed with me, but it is usually my impatience for myself, so I’ve been praying about that, and I have been asking God that Pinboy be patient with me (because I know he wants to do all kinds of things and I feel like I bore him for an hour).  It probably sounds like a stupid thing to pray about, but I have to be in this for the long-haul.  My health depends on it.

Just some questions

heippa_kaikille11.  Did I miss something in potato identification class?

My mom called and left a message on my phone, “You don’t have to pick up dinner while you are out.  I stopped and got you a cheesesteak.  I didn’t get you french fries because you’ve had potatoes a couple of times this week, but I got you chips.”

Are POTATO chips no longer made of potatoes?  Just wondering.

(In all fairness, my mom isn’t feeling well, and perhaps she’s feverish.  I also had plans on something healthy for dinner.  Had I spoken up and said, “I wish you’d ask if I want that kind of food before you buy something for me, because I really don’t want to eat that stuff,” her feelings would have been hurt..really and truly, so I ate the cheeseseak and it was really, really good.)

2.  Why do I find myself watching Friday Night Smackdown most Friday nights?

3.  Tomorrow, I have to plan my whole week and type up everything I need.  Sunday I have church, lunch with my dad, and hopefully I’ll be practicing my guitar to begin learning it, again.  Think I can fit it all in?  I was going to go to the gym tomorrow, too.  Forgot to add that one.

4.  Uh…I can’t think of anything else.   Can you?

Caption Contest

So, what do girls talk about in the bathroom?  I’m not telling; however, it would be interesting to know what girls in costumes have to say.  So, provide your witty and entertaining captions.  I’ll post winners Tuesday evening.  Have a great weekend, y’all!  🙂


Sorry this is so late, folks.  Just not feeling all that well this week, and it took extra effort just to blink my eyes.  🙂
