the answer? underpants!

sooooo

i did my Zumba on the wii.

because i am so amazingly awesome, or perhaps a glutton for punishment…i decided i would totally breeze through the “intense”  hour long work out.

and i pretty much did.

Sure – at one point i thought i was having a heart attack – maybe a little foaming at the mouth…but i did it.

it’s amazing how in such little time i could be so outta shape.  it baffles my mind.

i forgot how much i love the feeling of my heart going a mile a minute, the sweat (yes, i actually love to sweat!) and my muscles turning into complete mush.

I did this on Monday.  today i am still learning to walk fully erect.  my body is in so much pain…i love it  (i’m kinda sick like that) and i can’t get up without some primal groan escaping my lips.

I wasn’t going to Zumba tonight…but i think i may just try.  i will put it on an easier level and maybe just do half an hour.

i miss actually going to a class…but you know what is absolutely awesome about doing it at home?

let me paint you a picture.

forget the t-shirt and yoga pants
we are talking hot pants and sports bra and off to the races you go…oh and runners.
how is that for sexy????

there is nothing more liberating than jumping around your house in your underpants.

that my friends – is the key to total freedom.  try it.  go on now i dare you.
dance in yer underpants!

(you may want to shut your blinds – or not!)

pampered bee

during my hell with what felt like a broken neck and head…
i was desperate.
my doctor put me on these pain killers that barely even put a dent in my pain….
i was becoming cranky (more cranky than i naturally am lol) and i was just so tired of it all.
do you even know how much a headache takes out of you?

i decided to treat myself to a spa day.
i thought a nice massage would take away the stress…even if it was momentarily.
i needed a break, and i needed it yesterday.

So i called the spa…and the earliest they could get me in was….today.
2 weeks after i called.

I have been headache free for a couple of days now.
i went to bed with a massive headache on Tuesday and woke up Wednesday pain free.
yay for me!!!
this was the longest running headache i have ever had.  three and a half weeks.
three and a half weeks people!
that’s enough to drive anyone insane i am sure.
my neck seems perfectly fine now too…however this eye twitch i developed at the same time the headache came on needs to go before i rip my own eye ball out.
i wonder how many random people i’ve spoken to think i am hitting on them.
ya know, a little smile…a little uncontrollable wink 🙂

so today i am booked for a half hour Swedish massage, a 40 minute manicure and a 60 minute pedicure. (my little feet are so excited!)

oh maahhhh lawd….i cannot wait.

the first and only time i ever had a massage was probably just over a year ago.
a hot stone massage gifted to me for my birthday.
i can’t believe i let so much time pass.

i will think of you all fondly as i’m getting pampered.
this is just what a goddess needs
a full on pamper day…

what a great start to a weekend!

wonder drug

as much as i hate taking pills
these pills have been my miracle drug.
once the whole stoner feeling passes that is…
that...is not fun.

after the pill kicked in…i felt like myself.
very minimal headache and neck pain…tolerable.

so i took advantage of this feeling and went straight to the gym.

i got almost 2 hours in!!!
the scary thing was, i probably could have kept going!!!

i did a whole hour on the elliptical, while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer –
i’ve never seen one episode of that show…but i watched the whole thing at the gym
couldn’t tell you what the hell it was about…but i watched it lol

i totally got my sweat on.
woohoo!

i drove with my music really loud
did my car dancing…
life was good!

till the pill wore off…yuck.

i took one more at night…and got the best nights sleep EVER
i slept the whole night through –  which never happens

today i am feeling better.  still can’t really turn my neck
but i am going to see if i can make this a pill free day.

woohoo to feeling normal!

not happenin’

well…today was gonna be the day.

you know, the day i was gonna kick some turbo jam ass.

i don’t think so.

my back was feeling better as of yesterday.  still sore, but the pills created a  false confidence.  i felt like a superhero.  back ache?  what back ache?

but these super magical wonder pills i was taking did a number on my belly and had me feeling nauseous all day….and so i stopped taking them.

i woke up this morning and my back just was not a happy camper.

I can barely stand up straight, never mind bouncing around.

blah.
not impressed.

this is the longest i have gone in months not working out…and it’s making me feel a little loopy.

i can’t wait to sit in my office chair for 8 hours.  that should be wonderful!
Not.

ummm, ouch

k, i think i may have jinxed myself yesterday….

you know, writing about my sore back???

’cause holy crap did it get worse.

last night…i was almost in tears from the pain…that had spread all the way down my left leg…

not fun

i was awake until about 4am…in pain and a very unhappy, irritated bee…perhaps even a tad whiny…which really is unheard of!

i dropped an advil…and got some lovely muscle relaxing type o’ pills this morning.

i have decided…with much, much regret….that working out must wait.

if the pain does not dissipate in a day or 2…perhaps a visit to my doctor is in order…and maybe a kick ass muscle relaxant too 😉

bah humbug.

although….when taking these pills i do feel much better…i could kick some serious turbo jam ass….but i am afraid in the end, it would be my ass it would be kicking.

ohhhh the drama.
do you feel sorry for me??
maybe a little cheese for my whine?
Imagine…no choice but to sit here and relax and get all the puppy loving in the world.
life is ruff.
lol
