Day 130 (2014)

Workout: MixTape

Wow, been a while since I did MixTape... and I am glad I did it! Broke a sweat outside... got some new supplements yesterday, I'm ready to get back on the regimen to get to 270 by the end of the year!

So, ESPN College Gameday is coming to Morgantown for the TCU game... wow!

Not much more to say... gotta return a call to a certain someone this week. This sucks not being able to talk to her for over a month. Ugh.

Day 129 (2014)

Workout: FatBurner

Wowee... got my ass back on the DDPYoga mat today, and it felt GREAT! I'm so happy I did this... I needed to in order to clear my head.

Yesterday evening at the car dealership was a clusterf**k! I don't like being in an office where it's me vs 2 salesman. Well, they can forget getting my business. A-holes.

Today, I am determined to get a car within the parameters of what my credit union is willing to lend, and what I have to put down as a down payment. I am so freakin tired of this car shopping.

Anyway, that's it for today.

Day 128 (2014)

Workout: Course 3 on the bike

Records were shattered this evening!

10.7 miles, and 489 calories. I was haulin ass tonight!

It's time to get back on a regular exercise routine. Meds have been switched up, I've got a clearer picture of things (financially, etc), it's time to get back to my routine.

Not much more to say, other than, GO BRONCOS!!!

Days 125-127 (2014)

Exercises:

125: Energy! (10/4/14)

126: Course 2, 9.34 miles, 425 calories (10/10/14)

127: Course 2, 10.2 miles, 467 calories (today)

Yes, I know I have been away for a while, but there's an explanation as to my absence.

I have been withdrawn and reserved from people for the good part of a month. I have been apathetic towards a lot. Why?

Lexapro. My anxiety meds.

I got on Anxiety meds this time last month to calm the anxiety that seems to skyrocket when my ADHD meds, Vyvanse, wears off.

Lexapro has made me feel lethargic, tired, sapped of energy, and again, apathetic. The good news was, the Lexapro was helping quell my anxiety. The bad? It quells emotions in general, and I hate that. I don't even cheer much during WVU games (although I did get outta my seat and go crazy when Josh Lambert nailed that 55 yd FG vs. Taco Tech on Saturday.)

Tomorrow is a doctor's appointment... I am going to tell the doc what's been going on with the Lexapro and see what we can do about dosages or switching up the meds.

Today, I took some Cellucor (Fruit Punch) to mix with my water before a workout. It gave me energy, I plowed through on the bike, took a shower, and now I feel worlds better.

Talk tomorrow after the doc's appt.

Day 124 (2014)

Workout: Course 2/10.3 miles/470 calories.

Okay, September turned into "Slacking Off" month... I am not happy about it, and I plan on making up for lost time in October... starting tonight.

I am so glad I got on that bike... I'm sweaty, I'm exhausted, and I'm relieved. Didn't feel like getting the mat out tonight, so just hop on the bike.

I've been stressing out and worrying about my car situation for the last month. I've been worried about the funding for a car... however, I believe the Good Lord will provide for me. There may FINALLY be a light at the end of this tunnel. The era of my little Saturn is about to come to an end. More on that later.

There's a few people in my life that I really, really, really miss right now. They've been on my mind the last week or so... it sucks when you don't get to talk to them like you were talking to them during the summer. Oh well. Life happens sometimes. However, I am confident that everything will be okay.

I've been thinking a lot lately about my future... things are looking up, but it's going so bleeping slow. I hate it. But, I know I gotta take this shit one day at a time.

I haven't been to counseling in the last few weeks due to my car situation. However, I was able to schedule an appointment for this Friday. Lots to discuss.

That's it for tonight. Off to Stupidville tomorrow.

Day 123 (2014)

Workout: FatBurner

I have not exercised in ten days. In those 10 days, I have been one miserable-ass person (physically.) I have been working a lot, as well as worrying about some financial troubles. Namely, my next vehicle. My Saturn is currently on its last leg now. I had a good run with that car... it's been everywhere with me; everywhere in West Virginia, especially Morgantown, then elsewhere is Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Columbus, Charlotte, Asheville, and Myrtle Beach. But, all good runs must come to an end.

But, today's workout felt GREAT! Love just getting on that mat and getting my sweat rolling.

The Vyvanse and the Lexapro seem to be working as a formidable tag-team with my brain and emotions. That's great. So worried the ADHD & Anxiety meds were gunna try to fight each other, but they're working in harmony.

Not much more to say.

Day 122 (2014)

Workout: Energy!

Decided to do some basic DDPYoga today. Wanted to workout, but didn't wanna go on too long. So, Energy was on today's agenda.

Had the day off from work, and I'm headed back to Steubenville tomorrow.

I am so happy I am now on anxiety meds... I do NOT feel jumpy or nervous at all. I don't worry about stupid shit, and if I do, it doesn't ruminate constantly throughout my mind. Frankly, I've had a lot more happier thoughts since I got on those meds. Holy sh*t... these meds actually DO WORK! And, I actually slept through the whole night without waking up once! This is great! Swig of beer for the doctors for prescribing this medical gimmick to me.

Looking forward to the game in Morgantown this weekend vs. #4 Oklahoma. Should be a packed house full of energy.
