No Point…just rambling

Hello Folks…blogging from work again!  They gave me Internet access, but with all the warnings that they give you it makes you NOT want to have anything to do with dot-com addresses.  So I am going to keep blogging via email.  Makes it easier for me and I really do not feel like dealing with my Boss if they decide to tell her what I am doing…plus if they do say something I am using a dot-mil address.

Moving the Hell on from that one…

So I am up at the ass crack of dawn again this week.  I have no idea why I am waking up so easily (especially since I am working out like crazy) and I notice the informercial for TurboJam.  I ALMOST picked up the phone and ordered the set…but something made me look closely at the workout.  It is just like the Taebo of 1999/2000.  Basically, kickboxing to music.  I have a crapload of Taebo VHS and DVDs and I basically forgot about them…until…I saw this spastic woman doing something that looked exactly like Taebo.  Informercials are dangerous to me at the ass crack of dawn.  Thank God I had the husband asking me the age old question “Where’s my PT strap??” to get my attention from the television.  That question this morning is telling me that things are slowly going back to normal around here.  I stilll couldn’t tell him where it was other than my age old answer “It is where it is at!” I’m sorry, but at 0445 in the morning I am not that pleasant…

Has anyone seen the informerical for the two different belts that are supposed to make you thin??  One requires you electrocute yourself and the other requires baking yourself.  I can’t see doing either to lose inches off my waist.  The electrocution method is just insane and you can tell that it hurts from the reaction on their faces.  What is passing for smiles looks just like grimaces of pain.  The baking method is basically putting an electric blanket on your waist and sweating the pounds off.  As soon as you hydrate yourself you will have the same old puffy waist again.  I cannot understand why no one is pushing exercise and diet.  That is the only way to lose weight safely and permanantly…plus it is way cheaper than 4 easy payments of 39.99. I am still a low carb advocate, but I am now leaning more towards good carbs and good fats other than no carbs at all.  I am finding that my workouts are harder when I restrict all carbs.  I have also stopped looking at the damned scale.  The last time I got on it, it showed a gain but my clothes are looser.  So adios to the lying glass and metal monster…hello to push ups and crunches.  That reminds me…I have a push up intensive day today…no way am I going to punk out of this one.  No matter how much it hurts, I guess I will just buy stock in Ben Gay…

I also read in the news that Mayor Nagin (of New Orleans, my hometown) made the major faux pas of saying that New Orleans will be a chocolate city again…Um, yeah right.  I didn’t know that was the flavor of the city.  Chocolate?? The last time I was there it was just dirty so I guess it was a Mississippi Mud kind of flavor. Not the best thing to spout on MLK Day with the press surrounding him.  I really believe that he is losing his mind or he is suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.  It is feasible that is what has happened to him…especially with statements like that. The man was not immune to the destruction and he was there throughout the whole mess.   It is not God’s Will that the City be chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, strawberry, or whatever…I think it should just be a City.  If you go to http://www.nola.com then you can see the entire speech and then see his backpedaling from what he said.  I am a proud chocolate (black, african american, creole…whatever is the PC thing to say these days) woman and I can say with certainty if the Mayor was white and said that “The City will be Vanilla (or French Vanilla) again ”  That particular person would cease being Mayor and  everyone would want his head on a stick.  If he doesn’t have a speech writer then he should get one and if he has one then that writer should be slapped  several times about the head and shoulders with the speech just to make sure he doesn’t do it again.  Nagin really should have stripped down naked, smeared himself with peanut butter and ran through the streets of New Orleans reciting all 31 flavors of Baskin Robbins.  That is the only way that his comments would have made sense and his Political Career NOT be in shambles.  People would then look at this and say…”That was messed up…but look at him!  He is obviously NOT is control of all his mental facilities!  That explains that chocolate comment…”  Lordy…it is a shame that things happened the way that they did for New Orleans…but we all knew that the Big One would hit. “We” being the Locals… New Orleans will be back.  The City is one of the older ones in the United States…it has been through lots.  The City will thrive…as a flavor or not…But this is my opinion.  My mouth is still open from that speech…

I have rambled on long enough and I actually have to get some things done.  I will definitely be online tonight.  I am going to start documenting my workouts so I can see where I am going.  I will also post my workout so you guys can see how hard I am working and all my bitching is justified.  😀  That or if you are interested in trying a “old school” Army PT workout then it is there for the using…

Later!
