Back on track? Eh…

Food:

  • Cruelie burrito, 1% milk, coffee w/ carmel macchiato sugar free creamer
  • apple, greek yogurt w/ fruit and granola
  • Turkey and swiss on wheat.  Crystal Light.  Steamed broccoli.  2 dark chocolate reese’s (the little guys.)  2 red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  
  • dark chocolate reese’s…. like…  8.  
  • Leftover Spicy Shrimp Noodle Bowl, leafy greens salad w/ tofu and gorgonzola cheese w/ balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
  • Wine.  …  dark chocolate reese’s.  

Exercise:

  • 78 toe push ups, 50 situps
  • short O’Reilly walk
  • 2 hr Rad Die practice 
  • 30 minute Helen Wheels practice

Those Reese’s are evil.  I need to stop eating them.  And the Dove Chocolates.  I did great through the day and ate none.  Then before practice I just stuffed my face.  And I had two of Colin’s mom’s Red Velvet w/ Cream Cheese frosting cupcakes.  I’d licked all of the frosting off the first one so I had to eat the cupcake bare.  I needed a second to appreciate the combination of flavors.  Which was divine, btw.  😉  

Everyone seems to be enjoying the homework, so that’s good.  Plus it’s wildly entertaining for me, so there’s that.  Haha.  I hope everyone does the tough part of the homework, and not just the fun part.  (The tough part being something similar to my Congratulations, Menace post.  Or any type of celebration of one’s own Travel Team Awesomeness.  Per Bonnie D’Stroir’s advice.  The fun part being: post a picture on facebook of yourself when you started playing roller derby.)  

I’m not sure whose picture is my favorite so far.  They are all super awesome.  

My shitty derby attitude continues.  A bit.  I think?  Rad Die gave us “work on your own stuff” time last night, and I let Sweets test out my skates while I sat out instead.  I did do some pushups.  (That’s why 78 instead of 50.)  And I didn’t find a partner in time for another drill, so sat out then as well…  I dunno.   It’s just… what’s the point of busting my ass every second of every practice?  It didn’t get me where I wanted, and other people who work less hard did get there.  So I should be doing what they’re doing, right?  Not what I’ve been doing.  But that’s not the right attitude either.  I think I’m just lost and confused right now, and since I’m not sure what to do…. well.  Sometimes it’s easier to just sit out and take a breather here and there.  

I’m hoping to get back to my old self sooner than later.  Or figure out what to do if I’m not going to be busting my ass all the time.  It feels weird sitting out.  I don’t like it.

Actually moderately eventful Monday.  Discovered both cheese and mayo to be evil at lunch.  (Mayo = 100 calories, cheese = 135 calories.  Ugh.) Also, I *really* need to take my own advice and mix up some homemade salad dressing to keep on store for salad eating occasions.  (Ken’s Honey Mustard = 130 calories.  UGH.)  There was Red Velvet and Carrot Cake at lunch.  Mondays are Colin’s mom treat days, so I had a bite of each, thinking they were the homemade treats.  The Red Velvet immediately disappointed (stale, clearly boxed) so I threw it out.  I rocked some Carrot Cake though.  Then Colin came in with a tin of Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.  Fuck.  They were like Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Cream Pies  for adults.  Just needed some liquor.  Or wine.  Anyway, I had 1/4 of one just to taste it.  It was bliss.  Too bad I’d already wasted my treat calories on Carrot Cake.  (You’ll notice Mayo, Cheese, and Honey Mustard are evil, but apparently 250 calories of Red Velvet Cake and 280 of Carrot Cake are not.  Priorities, I say.)

Practice.  Awesome.  Die is the shit.  She took all of the everything from the forum and put it together into one super awesome practice.  She even threw in some bridging since I’d suggested working on it after practice for the ppl who didn’t want to do Off Skates training during practice time.  My goal for now is to help the newbs, and focus on that rather than my own skills.  I’m definitely there, but I’m worried I may be overdoing it.  We split into two groups for bridging, and I sort of organized the group Die wasn’t managing…  there were other more qualified skaters in the group, too… so hopefully it’s cool I did that.  StarFry seemed to “get” bridging better afterward, so if that’s one outcome, I guess it was okay.  I dunno.  I just don’t wanna be bossy or take over when I shouldn’t be… but I also had this realization the other day… oh this should be another post.  I’ll make it another post.  Blah.

After practice Titan suggested we go out for Beers, so we did!  We went to this cool place called “Prost.”  It reminded me of the Lowry Beer Garden, it was really cool and fun, and I was able to go b/c today is Election Day and Legend is a Polling Place so no students, and no students = I don’t have to be here at 6:30!  Yaya.
