Martini Madness is Right

Food:

  • Jimmy Dean turkey sausage biscuit w/ grapefruit and brown sugar
  • Luna Bar
  • 3 extra large martinis
  • bar nuts, cheese platter, Thai Chicken Flatbread

Exercise:

  • 50 toe pushups
  • 50 situps (25 crunches, 25 v-ups)
  • Saturday Scrimmage

Yeah, so I hit up Saturday Scrimmage yesterday because I hate Body Pump and the Spin instructor was the marimba lady.  It was fun, but also frustrating, as per usual.  I tried being “YODA” instead of “R2D2” and that was a disaster.  Try Not, Do. Or Do Not.  My ass.  So today to avoid further disaster I’ll just be R2D2 today.  Which makes me really sad.  Whatever.

We’ve been practicing flippy-spinny stuff to break out as a jammer.  I’ve now applied the move thrice to blocking.  “Oh, you think you’re in front of me, jammer?” Flip.  “How you like me now, bitch?”  Granted yesterday it landed me in the penalty box (high block.)  Didn’t feel anybody’s face on me anywhere, so whatevs.  I was “shiny” yesterday.  That’s what I get for showing up at Saturday Scrimmage, I guess.  *Sigh.*  Hopefully my shininess doesn’t extent to today, because that would royally blow.

So then Tim and I went to Union Bistro in Castle Rock for $5 Martini Saturdays.  Oh, I enjoyed that.  A lot.  They bring the shaker and pour your martini at the table, which basically means you get two martinis in one.  😀  I had “The Martini” (Dirty Vodka,) “Acid Rain” (Citrus Vodka, midori, lime and cherry), and a “Black Pearl” (Pearl Vodka, Blackberry Infusion, & lime).  All delicious.  Not as good as the “Ruby Red Slipper” I favor at Siena‘s, but the ambiance more than made up for staring at a wall at Siena’s, sooo….  I’ll live.

Then Tim and I argued the benefits of a 5:15pm movie, or an 8:45pm movie.  He wanted to nap prior to the movie.  I told him if I went to sleep, that would be it for the night.  He won.  I passed out, and at 8:00ish when he tired to get me up had a pounding throbbing horrible headache and wouldn’t do it.  So Tim went to the movie alone and I slept.  Which probably turned out good on my calorie count, since sleeping kept me from eating.  (Friday was such a food disaster.)

Ponytails and Cocktails: two things that will always rock.

Food:

  • Honey Nut Cheerios, milk, coffee, sugarfree vanilla creamer
  • Yoplait greek w/ fruit and granola, Coconut Luna Bar, almonds
  • Subway turkey and ham w/ avocado on wheat, all the veggies, honey mustard (no cheese!)
  • Handfulls and handfulls and handfulls of homemade carmel corn.  So much all my teeth rot out after my fillings fell out.  Sooooo good.
  • banana… dark chocolate cherry almond clusters…
  • Chicken Cordon Bleu w/ steamed brussel sprouts, rye bread, and wine.  (And Flexeril.)

Exercise:

  • Longish Reilly walk

My back has been bugging me all day, progressively worse as the day’s worn on.  So I’m mixing a flexeril wine cocktail.  Fucking badass.  My liver prolly doesn’t like it though… Skipped practice tonight.  With the back and needing to pack…  prolly a good decision.  It’s a good thing Frida’s off the TBT or she’d be giving me a beating for sure.  😉

 

So, yeah.  Needless to say I’m basically off the TBT wagon.  Ugh.  I’ve worked so hard and done sooo well I don’t want to fuck it all up now!  So close.  Conversely…  my original goals are centered on derby improvement, physical strength, drinking more water, etc.  I’m doing great there.  It’s just I’ve been drinking more, eating pizza, and gaining a few lbs.  We’ll see how it goes.

In other news…  my badass Bijou bruise?  The one I refused to Arnicare b/c I wanted Bijou to see it?  Yeah.  Black and giant.  And I’m rocking the bikini in two days.  Fuuuuck.  Why don’t I ever plan ahead?  Oh well.

Blah blah blah

So I’m debating. I was gonna cheat with a nice dinner last night. I didn’t because our dinner plans fell through, but not before I’d committed to the cheat day by drinking a couple of martini’s.

The question is… Do I try again… Or… Not… ? I went to spin class again this morning. I will walk Reilly later, assuming I’m done with volleyball sooner than later… But at this rate, I’ll be here all damn day. A good TBTer would not try again… I guess we’ll see if I’m good or not
