maaan..stacks work out plan kicks my ass everyday.
30 min cardio (first 10 min - 10min pace, 2nd 10 min - 9:13 min pace, 3rd 10 min 8:30 pace —> 3.3 miles, i was super surprised i could still run sub 9 min miles!!!)
it’s not even 12 yet, and i am pooped. i’m about ready to KTFO! while i feel like i’m being tortured for nearly for 1.5-2hrs at the gym, and i seriously feel like stacks is working me really hard and seriously pushing my physical limits….i really enjoy the feeling of accomplishment at the end. i feel productive. i feel healthy. and most importantly i feel like… “dayum..i just survived another day of stack’s workout plan!” it’ll be nice when these things become easier.
p.s. usually stacks like to bring me to the gym later in the night because the gym is emptier…but today she had to do something later, so we went earlier, and it was packed…but all i gotta say is dayum! where do all these guys go on campus!?!? such nice physique. how come i never see them around!? lol had me and stacks giggling.
p.p.s. the way you control your breathing seriously helps facilitate your exercises so much more!!!
so well..remember that plan to get fit? i’m finally committing to it!! this is the second straight day i hit the gym.
sit ups (on the incline!!)
some abs exercises with medicine ball
20 min of cardio (stacks wanted to do 30..but i was dying by then lol)
stacks is such a beast. you won’t believe how much this girl can lift!!! she’s so strong! she’s been sooooo helpful ^____^. she’s gonna be my personal trainer until i familiarize myself with everything and form my own regimen. i’m pretty certain i won’t be able to get out of bed tomorrow. 9am for nutrisci too XP
tomorrow is a rest day for GAME 7 OF THE NBA FINALS!!! YEEE! then friday morning workout with stacks before i head down to LA for the third time this month!
You are a beautiful person. I wanted to remind you of that.
aww thanks! i wish i knew who wrote this, so i could give you a big hug. i feel like a bajillion times better! i’ve been up for a long time, so i think i was definitely due for a momentary dip. it’s just been one of those days. sometimes i just gotta ride out the emotions. i know they’re only temporary and will pass. but thanks for the positive affirmation <3! it’s just what i needed.
so umm….my external harddrive containing all my files that have accumulated over the past three years nearly failed me!!!! (false alarm, thank God for being good to me!!!) for a second, it gave me a power scare because i had backed up everything from my life the past three years on that thing and with my latptop harddrive being replaced just recently, those were the last single copies of all my files. it’s happened to me before my first year of college with my tiny western digital passport (super mobile external), but the damage was so little because it was only one year’s time, which kinda sucked…but i mean i could live with that. but i was about to have a heart attack with this one because everything..pictures, videos, music, past papers, projects, assignments, past appliacations, my resumes…EVERYTHING!!! was nearly lost!!! but luckily, it was a false alarm, and i was able to access everything eventually.
anyway…long rant, but wake up call! i’m in need of a techonology detox. i rely on it so much, but it’s not nearly as reliable as we give it credit hahaha.
it’s about technology and its effect on our thinking patterns and its rewiring of the brain. i’m definitely gonna try to wean myself from my heavy dependence on technology..that and ohh umm in the future, give my kids one hour technology time and then make them go outside and play and enjoy the sun!!!!!!
anyway….i also learned that gabriela’s methods of comfort do nothing but make me feel as though my feelings are not valid but rather make me feel crappier than already do…
me: *sigh* i’m gonna be really sad if i lose all these files…
gabriela: it’s okay…there are starvings kids in Africa!
lolol…jk gabriela!! i lava you!! <3 but it’s true….it’s not the worst thing that could happen to me. and a DOWNFALL is just a SETUP for future accomplishment!!
lol okay i need to end this ridiculous entry. TECHNOLOGY DETOX!!!!!!!
“It is not easy … to wait. Waiting is what the hunter does, and the poet and the slugger. He waits for the moment of inevitability and fate and then he swings, or shoots, or takes up the pen to put down a line. They don’t teach us to wait in America; they teach us to grab. But waiting is what we do when we are looking for something beautiful, when we are looking for an end to our sorrow. Nothing is infinite in life, not even sorrow. You just have to wait.”—
