1/2way there

Yay, Wednesday!! It's nice that the middle of the week is coming to a close. When it's over, that'll mean one week down and 3 more to go until Dave comes home. SWEET!

Today I'm deciding not to go to the gym. It'll be my 'off' day. I will probably do some excersizes at home. I get emailed a bunch of tips for quick excersizes, and my most recent email is a 7-min ass workout...which I need. I'm ukrainian, so I've got the big hips & ass (blame it on the perogies! LOL)

Last night I had a nice time at the gym. I did the treadmill for 25 mins. Just walking again ( I hate running ) but I kept changing the incline ever 2 mins so so from 0% up to 6.5%, back down to 0% etc. After that I did the circuit, then some weird hidden floaty eliptical thingy. After the gym I really didn't feel like making supper (i hadn't eaten at this point), so I headed to Subway and had a 6" Chicken Teriaki sub. Mmmm. Deliscious!
This week I've been going to the gym at around 7-8pm and I really like it because there's not a lot of people there and I don't get that starving feeling. It's nice. I think I may keep it up.

I made it home just in time for BIG BROTHER (wAHOOO). I didn't get to see too much of my hunnie (Read Here and you'll see what I mean.) but it was a messed up episode.
My hunnie's partner was jogging in the courtyard and she started to say she needed to go to the Diary Room.. fast. So she sprinted there. As she walked in you could hear her breathing, and she said "I think I'm having an allergic reaction.. my throat is closing, etc". Immediately I tensed up. I have all kinds of allergies: food, pollen, cats, dust, etc etc, and I've had massive allergic reactions before from throat closing to the Will Smith debocle in Hitch:

No lies.

So I got pretty tense. At the same time, this other (whiny) chick started to say she needs sugar because she's hypoglycemic. As she's saying this she's filing her nails, looking nonchalant, so I'm thinking it's a joke because she's been put on slop for a while (icky icky food concauction the people have to eat for a week). She started walking in a hallway then immediately passed out and started convulsing.

This AND the allergy thing happened all at once. It was VERY intense. I think I held my breath for a good portion of that episode because I was so nervous.

I haven't yet seen what caused the one girl's allergic reaction, but I know in one of the challenges earlier that day, the contestants had to dig through barrels of peanuts to find a cords and connect cords to make 'mock electricity'. Anyway, while that was happening, I put myself in their shoes and wondered how that would affect me if I were in the show, given my allergies. Followed by the thought that, they must have made sure no one had those allergies or else this wouldn't be a challenge.
But then later on, Bango, someone has an allergic reaction. I'm interested to see if it was the peanuts, but we'll see.

Here's a link with some background and youtube clips for anyone interested. It was freaky for me.

Enough of that. Big brother IS on again tonight, so maybe there'll be more info.

My meals:
Brekkie: Wildberry oatmeal with green tea
Snack: cup of peaches
Lunch: Lean Cuisine Chicken Alfredo Bowl
Snack: Fruit Source bar & Apple-Raspberry-Cranberry applesauce
Supper: Beef & Veggie stirfry

I used to walk on the treadmill when I was bored with running, and if I upped the incline to 15 per cent ( and held on!) I would burn the same calories walking at 3.8 mph as I would running at 6 mph!

omg...I love Big Brother too.... That episode was screwed up! What was with amanda having a freaking seizure? Wouldn't she have told the producers that she had these health issues in the first place? You'd think she'd need to 'cause the show KNOWS that everyone will be on 'slop' at some point, and if she has health issues that prevent her from eatig slop, she shouldn't be on the freaking show! Sorry about the rant...I hate that girl. Glad she's gone.

Yay...3 more weeks 'till he's home!
