4 Life

So while at the gym the other day, this older lady (lets say 65) came up to me while I was in the locker room putting on my makeup....she says, "wow, I was watching you workout. that was sure a workout. Are you training for something in particular?" She stood there looking at me all beeming (like I was her child). "uh, just in training for life." I said to her.
She just looked at me like she didn't understand. "you workout that hard just for yourself?" she said.
"uh, yeah." I said.
"oh. " She said.Her beeming face being replaced by a blank stare.
So I found this quite odd, that to workout intensly for a marathon, an ass kicking tournament, a bitch slapping event, the olympics, or what ever it is that calls for training intensly is a good thing and will have older ladies looking at me proudly as if I am there daughter. But to workout intensly so I will have better health, gets an odd look. I didn't have a response for her. I just turned back to the mirror. On got my glamour on.

Wicked Lovely

So this is the first book in a long time that I have read in just 3 days. After purchasing I did realize it was a Teenharper book, meaning it is more for teens, but what the hell it looked good so whatever. If you like books about fairies and things of the harry potter nature, then you would dig this book too. Yeah there were times when reading that it did seem rather teen like, but I got over it. I am now looking out for her next book called Ink Exchange which is a continuation of the Fairie story. So read on my fellow fairie lovers read on!!!

Obsession of the Week

It's official. I am obsessed with exercise. I cannot stop thinking about exercising, reading about exercising, or just in general exercising. You would think that with all this amount of obsession I would be as thin as a rail....but so not true.

I have dropped down another dress size, but the weight is not melting off of me. I may go and ask this one chick at the gym who does metobolic testing if she could test me. It then gives you a list of things that are best foods for your metobolism....although the thought of eating broccoli and brussel sprouts are so not appealing.

I have changed my eating habits dramatically however, where I don't consume mass quantites of sugar nor am I eating processed foods. I have been making all my meals, as well as only buying organic food. This has been an expensive transition. No wonder we are such a fat society as all the cheap foods are bad for you.

However, I am determined this year to be super fit. I did go climbing the other week and was quite impressed with my stamina a strength after going to the gym and working out with a trainer. It has so made such a difference.

I purchased a weighted vest the other week too and when I walk the dogs I wear a 10 pound vest. It goes up to 20 pounds, but at the moment walking for about a mile (which on the way back is up hill) with a weighted vest is kinda tiring, so the 20 pounds will come later I am sure.

I realized I used to be this obsessed with exercising 20 years ago. That would make sense why I was an aerobic instructor back then.

And to add to my obsession I am going to L.A. this weekend, and I made sure the hotel I am staying at had a nice gym.....yeah, I even paid extra so there was a nice gym.... I think I am turning psycho....oh yeah, I already am. Thats ok then.

R.I.P. Oden

What movie says it all about an era gone by? None other than the Decline of Western Civilization, The Metal Years.!! I was watching that movie the other day as it was on the IFC channel. Oh my god, how hilarious! Were we really all that stupid? Why yes!! Although I was never one for "actressing" but I do believe the members of ODEN ODEN ODEN all must be dead by now, as they said in their hot tub interview, that if they didn't make it into super stardom there was nothing left but to kill themselves.

I must say nothing has ever quite compared to that era of big hair, makeup and spandex. Somewhere I heard that glam metal was making a come back. I don't think I will be breaking out my aqua net just yet. And as for all my spandex of days gone by? They have definitely been given a proper burial into Spandex heaven.........where I do believe Oden must be at this moment! Glam on boys!
