typical title for one who goes to a baseball game, i am so generic sometimes. so sue me. :)
it was fun reading about all of the jobs you started out with. i guess i should have also asked what your job is now to compare the two, that woulda been interesting. feel free to share that with me too!
this post is going to be all quick like because this girl has to be AT work in 8 hours, which means less than 8 hours of sleep is in the cards.. actually less than 7. eek.
rewind to the beginning of the day~
meal 1: protein oats @ 9:30 AM
meal 2: garbanzos+chicken+cottage cheese+ranch seasoning & green beans @ 1:00 PM
i told you, meal 2 every day this week.
i am not complaining.
meal 3: “banana split” @ 4:00 PM
well, today’s national holiday is whiskey sour day according to most sources. one source said today is national banana split day even though my sources celebrated this on august 10th. but i went with it and celebrated in my own way!
chobani+choco protein powder+bran flakes+banana
it was time for HIIT at 5:30 PM
treadmill. i hadn’t done the HIIT where i increase the speed as i progress in intervals for awhile, so i went with that today. you will notice in the first set of intervals my speed increases by .5 each minute, then the next by .6, then by .7 and the last set each minute the speed is increased by .8. this is a nice challenge, try it!

i then proceeded to die. and then came back to life and hopped onto the stair mill for kicks, i like to pound out a quickie on that bad boy if i have time (TWSS)
as i was starting up on the stairs, a dude comes over to me.. a big dude. but i was up on the stair mill so i was towering over him. he had a jamaican accent and asked me how fast i was running on the treadmill. i told him, and then he shakes his head and tells me how fast i am. haha. then he told me i was in better shape than anyone in the gym. usually i hate it when dudes talk to me at the gym, but this was flattering and he was def not creeptastic.
oh but one time, i was chest pressing it up on the smith machine with a girl friend, this guy comes over to me whips out a piece of paper and pen and says, “hi, my name is so and so (forgot). and you (writes 3 numbers on the paper) are (writes a 4 more numbers on the paper) gorgeous (writes his name on the paper)” and hands me the paper. i look at him, tell him i have a boyf, and he stumbles over his words a bit and then proceeds to tell me that if i ever need a work out partner to let him know. i tell him thanks, but no thanks. honestly, who carries a paper and pen around in the weight room?!
ok so then i did 10 minutes give or take on the stairs.
stats: 36 min, max HR 181, ave HR 145, calories 274.
well i had zero time between the gym and the baseball game. my boss gave me 6 suite tickets (sweet! haha) and there was free food available. well, i am wise to the baseball stadium’s tricks and planned ahead!
i used my leftover grilled salmon and rolled up a fish taco with some corn salsa, corn and black bean salsa and broccoli slaw~
maybe it doesn’t look too rad but hey, waaay better for me than a hot dog! and actually it tasted amazing.
i rolled it up in some foil before hitting the road.
we got to the ball game and parked real far from the stadium. en route to the field i found my dream car… well maybe not my dream car of all time, but i have been looking for a car to actually purchase and this. was. the. one. i am going to go buy it tomorrow i think! cross those fingers for me.
at the ball game i ate meal 4: fish taco, cucumbers, carrots & snap peas.
and marshall ate nachos and hot dogs and soda :P
i am not a die hard baseball fan, i like it but i could take it or leave it. if i am going to go to a ball game i guess i would pick basketball? oh no, soccer. really love soccer. and hockey is fun to watch. but ultimately i would rather watch snowboarding and skateboarding which involve no balls at all!
anywho. our team lost but it was a good time none the less!
so then we gallivanted home and decided to put sleep off a little longer by watching the latest episode of true blood and it was rather strange.
and now i feel like this girl:
so i am going to cut ya loose.
promise, more interesting things tomorrow. i have some thangs i wanted to share from around blog land but i just don’t have the energy to gather the links right now!
1. any creepster gym stories? i know this girl has a few.
2. favorite sport to watch? to play?
love to all and to all a good night, or something like that.
xo, janetha b.
p.s. a year ago today i started my die hard body for life challenge. i can’t believe it has been a year! more exciting things to come on that later.
