Olympics and Unemployment

Let me start with this....I have eagerly awaited the Olympics, tried to pick MY event so I can go in 4 years, but I will not be doing a daily update on the Olympics.  If you like them watch them, if you are like me and unemployed you will get to watch a lot of them.  I have watched all weekend long, I have tried to watch while doing something else otherwise I'm just sitting on my butt and I cant do that. 

This was Saturday

Saturday was the only day that I truly did the lazy Olympic day.  All day long I laid on my couch or bed and watched TV.  I looked up once and it was raining and I had no idea.  The only have a few comments to say....Go Team USA and Aly Raisman!!!  Why doesn't the field hockey team get longer sticks so they don't have to bend over the whole time?  Does anyone understand Judo and can you help me understand it?  When do we get Track and Field?  And how do they play water polo without getting so mad at each other?  Thank you team USA for learning the words to the National Anthem, I haven't seen anyone mess it up yet!

Ok, away from the Olympics I think I made up for all my week 3 slip ups on MM.  I have been back on the right food track.  The only thing today was maybe too many diet drinks but I also had plenty of water.  I also got in 2 crazy intense workouts today.  Since I am spending 8 hours a day at the gym and only able to do the lower body workouts I am officially competing with myself.  Every workout I try to do something more than the day before.  Today I rocked out 170 on the leg press (10lb gain) and I did the stair master for 30 minutes (better by 10 minutes.) 

I can already tell that tomorrow my legs are gonna hurt because as of right now I can hardly walk. 

On the job hunt things are looking up.  I went to a job fair yesterday and was asked to stay for an interview and today I was asked to stay for a second interview!  I am not loving this unemployment thing, the sleeping in a bit and the mid-day nap are nice but so are paychecks and something to do! 

I do have one funny for you tonight.  I got all ready to fix my dinner tonight and really needed ketchup, however, I forgot to get in it in my last 3 trips to Wal-Mart (another new hobby of mine) so at 8:30 when I got home from the gym for a second time today I had to call my dad and go to his house and pick up a cup of ketchup so I could eat my dinner.  Yes!  Ketchup is that important!

I could eat it with a spoon!

I'm going to drag my tired little butt to the shower and to bed so I can get up and do it all again tomorrow morning.  I have to gym goals yet for tomorrow but I'm sure I will come up with something.

Also, 2 exciting things.  I have been chosen to be featured on two seperate websites ( and Fitblogger) and I am so excited.  I will let you know when they come out.

Yep, I lost my job last week. Come on over to the gym and we can workout! I cant run right now or do anything upper body so I am not all that much fun at the gym. Hopefully I can get released to do more soon!
