Yesterday, I went to boot camp, but I was having such a bad day and I was in such a crabby mood, that I didn’t really want to write about it and bring everybody down to my level.  I felt fat, I had cramps, I miss my cousin, work was stressing me out, and folks owed me money.  It was just not a good day.  But today was better, just a regular Hump-day  aka Wednesday.  After work my friend and I went to the park and took our weekly leisure 3 mile walk.  My knee was bothering me, but I just pushed through it.  Unlike last week’s power walking surprise, we took our time.  After our walk I went and got Pizza Hut for dinner.  I know that’s a terrible food choice, but that’s what I wanted (can we say emotional eating?)  Anyway, while I was waiting on my order, I went to the Blockbuster video store next door.  I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m a complete movie fanatic.  Like my Big Little Sister said, “Carli, all you do is work, blog, workout and watch movies.”  And yep….that’s pretty much my life in a nutshell.  LOL! …Anyway, when I walked in Blockbuster, it felt so archaic.  I was like, you mean I’ll have to come back to this store in 5 days, and get out the car, just to return the movie? Netflix converted me about a year or two ago.  There’s nothing like coming home to that fantastic little red envelope, and opening up to see what treasure lies inside. (Told you I was a fanatic, I watch at least 3 or 4 movies every week, if not more)  But, I was quite shocked to find out that Blockbuster gets some of their movies 28 days before Netflix or Redbox.  At first I felt robbed, but then I realized, if it wasn’t good enough to see at the theater, who cares if I have to wait another 30 days to see it.  So I walked around and picked all the movies I liked, so I could come home and add them to my Netflix’s queue.  Well, I’m going to eat my devil food aka pizza and open my envelope and watch The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock.  Last Night I watched “The Proposal” with her also.  That movie was too cute! I really liked it. Well, I could babble on and on about how cool the midnight sun was when they were in Alaska and the sun was shining 24 hours a day even at night.  Or how funny Ramone the overweight hairy stripper was…But, I’ll sign off.  Later!

P.S. Netflix didn’t pay me to say that, but I’m trying to figure how they can! LOL!

P.P.S. Please don’t go eat pizza just because I did.

  1. Hey there!
    It’s okay to eat pizza. Just don’t eat a whole one, make sure you share, just like momma told you to do as a child. LOL Hope the knee is doing better. Is it hurting due to the running? My husband has bad knees and uses KT tape.
    Well hope the rest of your week is great! Keep up the great work!

    • Tammy, you know what, I didn’t eat the “whole” pizza…I guess it could have been worse. I think my knee hurts for a couple reasons, I injured it playing basketball in 7th grade (Yeah me… all 5 ft 3in was on the basketball team), and I think because of my weight, it’s just not good for my knees. At my last race, I saw a couple people with that tape, I didn’t know what it was. I might have to try it out.

  2. Congrats on the great attitude and pushing through!
    You are inspiring! I stayed up late the other night reading your site inside and out! 😉
    I have decided to train again for a 5K. Last year I walked my first 5k. I loved it! But I let myself fall off the wagon after hurting my knee trying to do the C25k running.
    We all have days that bring us down, as long as we get back up on that horse and keep on we will all succeed!

    Keep up the great work!!

  3. Hey Carli!
    I just wanted to let you know how much i appreciate your podcasts for the C25K program. I’m in the middle of week 7 and downloaded 7, 8, and 9 from your site tonight without looking at what the songs were really and found myself dancing for the last minute and a half of my walk 🙂 Thank you so much! I think that i’ve found my podacasts to officially wrap up my final weeks of training. You are GREAT!
