september!

August, where did you go? So far September is really hot and I’m sick, so that doesn’t bode well. I was at work for about 10 minutes this morning, coughed a few times, said a few things in my pathetic sick voice and got kicked out.

It is my birthday month, though, and we’re spending a few nights in a little beach town in Florida in a couple weeks. I can’t wait!

The plan for August was to stick to paleo-ish eating, wear my FitBit, drink lots of water and work out more consistently.

I did really well with food for the first two weeks of the month, got off my game a bit, then calmed back down. Water consumption was way up.

I forgot my FitBit here and there, but I did wear it most days. Holler. Workouts were pretty good, too. Scott and I started Saturday workouts together after I close the gym, and I’ve been making it to a decent number of classes. Still not as consistently as I’d like, though.

And now for September. I’d like to be a little more, uh, scientific about these goals. Less “more” or “some” and more numbers. I want to be able to actually track my progress.

  • work out at least 5 times a week
  • 100 ounces of water a day
  • read three books
  • track macros/count calories 
  • walk/run an average of 10K steps a day each week
  • run once a week
  • spent 2 hours writing each week
  • stick to my personal budget ($120/month)

Over and out.

Rangrasiya - September 2, 2014

Aw shit. They’re using the same music again. I can’t fucking do this anymore. She’s not Paro! Stop using the music you used for PaRud! JESUS H. CHRIST.

image

Shut up Rudra. Shut up. She asked for three. Bas bhi karo. This is too much now. He’s falling for her and I can’t handle it. This is so disgusting.

image

THEYRE TOO CLOSE. Back uuuuupppppp bro. Sheesh. Enough already. MyRud cannot happen. IT CANT. STAAAAAHHHHHPPPP IIIIIITTTTT!!!!!!!!!!

image

Seriously though, this music driving me INSANE!!!!!!! They need to stop. I can’t take it! My heart can’t handle this bullshit. If she’s not Paro, then ya’ll need to quit already. This is absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!

image

And they’re doing that thing. The turn back and look thing. NOOOOOOOOO. And the title score. NOOOOOOOOOO. I CANT. Guys seriously, I’m going to cry. THIS IS SO MEAN. I can’t take it anymore! Why are they torturing us like this?!

image

Aaannnndddd. Here comes the Ken doll to save the day… Yoooooooo. What’s with this fool’s voice? Is this a man or a cartoon character?!

image

Is calling her Babe, the only thing they could think of to make him seem American? Chiiii yaar. Come on. 

image

BAHAHAHAHAHA. Rudra’s having Rohit flashbacks! Love at first sight ho gaya Major Saab ko… RuRo is totes happening.

image

Awwwwwww. Dhruv is so sweet. That random little hug was too cute! He’s always so worried about Rudra being sad. There’s so much of Paro in him.

image

So now Myrah’s going to re-think all this marriage nonsense and stick with Rohit. Then eventually he’ll find the video message and flip out on Rudra. And then cue the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai parallels with Dhruv and Rohit teaming up to make MyRud happen…

image

Good to see that Kaku Sa is still alive! Long time no see buddy. I was starting to fear that they’d put his portrait up next to the “King and Queen” of the haveli.

image

Rohit got all excited when he saw Rudra. Control yaar, controlllll. He can’t be yours just yet. Sambhaliye apne aap ko… One look at Rudra, and Rohit’s just like:

image

Hehehehehehehe and now RuRo are sharing a room?! Scandaloussssss!!!!!!!

image

Holy shit. That picture by Rudra’s bed side is so perfect. Look at how happy my babies were!!!!!!!!

image

Myrah and Arnav Singh Raizada were totally besties in America. I can just feel it, GOD DAMN IT!

the weekend encapsulated~

• adult bbqs are the best. they have things like hibiscus agua fresca, homemade smoked ribs, and homemade ice cream. i feel like i gained 10 lb though… also. fireball is the trending alcohol of the year.

• i am still not an adult. i make poor choices and don’t know how to moderate myself. i broke an important part of the vintage stand mixer boyf bought me on thick cookie dough. :(

• the cookies were definitely delicious.

• successfully moved a bed w boyf’s tiny car through crazy allston traffic!!

• we’ll see how the mom situation pans out. ick. I’d rather not think about it. or talk about it, ever. v healthy relationship there..

• it was our hangout anniversary yesterday!! 2 years ago boyf was sad and messaged me on fb. i invited him along to my plans. he ran away bc he saw someone he hates. the next day i talked to him on fb at a cafe after i ran away from my parents and it turned out that he lives a block away, so he came to meet me. then we spent the whole day together. the next day i ran into him in allston, and we spent that whole day together, too. we hung out a few more times before he went to chicago for a week, and we gchatted the entire time. i guess soon after that we figured out that we “like liked” each other. :3

• we had anniversary bagels from a Jewish bakery after i went to an awesome DIY powerlifting gym, and cambodian food in the burbs for dinner.

• then i made us watch spirited away bc i was feeling like experiencing the mystical magic of miyazaki

What is Kate doing? Is she going to turn Scott into a berserker? How does she know how to make a berserker?  Now it looks like Peter is going to double cross Kate with help from Malia. Peter might have found the desert wolf but I think he’s lying. I’m also not really that confident in Malia’s were coyote fighting abilities. She’s a good fighter but Kate is pretty strong and she’s a were jaguar with her own berserkers. It was revealed that Eichen House has a secret wing for supernaturals! I was really excited about this. I really hope we see more of the ward and its inhabitants in future episodes/seasons. I’m also really curious about Dr. Valack and his self made third eye. Who/What is he and how did he end up in Eichen House? We still don’t what Parrish is but he does have red eyes. Is he a phoenix? Dragon? Salamander? Demon?

Days 9/2/14

WilSon!  I don’t know if they can “settle” everything with one conversation…especially if Will refuses to have an open-mind and listen to Sonny…and Sonny just keeps trying to make Will feel better instead of letting him just feel.  Putting off talking is what will make things worse, Will.  The anger and the resentment and the hurt feelings will have time to fester if you wait.  Talking now gets everything out in the open and then maybe you two can move forward.  At least Sonny understands that.  Is Days trying to make Will as immature as possible now?  What’s next a pacifier?  And now Will is going to act like a petulant child.  Lovely.  “What am I wrong about?”  Just shut up and listen to your husband.  Ah, Sonny was offering a helping hand by getting Will the job…minus the offering.  Offering implies a choice.  It’s presenting something to someone which s/he can accept or reject it.  There was not offering.  Bad word choice.  Aww…I can’t remember the last time we heard the WilSon theme.  So…they’ve kind of made up.  Will’s blog is “brilliant?”  Too bad his TruVista article is absolute trash.  They can say it is well-written 1,000 times in 1,000 different languages…it’s not going to make it true.  I’m glad that they’re making up, but stretching it out a bit would’ve been nice.  The difference between the insults is that Sonny isn’t a “glorified barista,” but Will is “desperate for attention” and he did “enjoy destroying” Sami and EJ.  At least, Will isn’t denying that fact.  Did anyone think they stopped loving each other?  Seriously?  No, they had an argument.  Couples, even the best ones, fight.  The love they have for one another isn’t temporarily suspended just because they’re arguing.  I never understand why on television and in movies the character always say things like that; “…I never stopped loving you.”  That’s something that should just be unspoken.  Of course you didn’t stop loving your husband.  No one thought you did.  Sloppy, cliche writing.  Anyway…love WilSon kisses and Will’s hand in Sonny’s hair.  ;)  Yay, they got through their first fight as a married couple.  Let’s celebrate with sex on the sofa!  Haha.

Ugh, Daniel.  NICOLE!  She has a job offer in Santa Fe.  Nicole can’t leave Salem.  She’s one of the few people I like!  Haha.  She’s not going because the money is “lousy.”  Lol.  Daniel is such a bastard.  Screw him for saying that Brady needs friends “good or bad.”  Nicole is a real friend unlike Daniel.  Daniel, go away and stop staring at Nicole like you’re either going to punch her or sexually assault her.  It’s creepy and wrong either way.  Lord, I hate him!

So…Theresa’s having a nightmare that she arrested for John’s attempted murder.  It would be nice if she pretended to be worried about John instead of only herself.  Hi, Anne!  And she has champagne?  What are we celebrating?  Ah, Abigail’s public humiliation.  Nice.  Anne wants to talk about John.  Congrats on your annulment!  She was “on top of the world” when she married Brady?  She thought she could kick Maggie out of the house?  Um…that was literally never, ever going to happen.  It’s Victor’s house last time I checked.  John didn’t “show up.”  You invited him over to the Kiriakis house, you dimwit.  You suck at lying.  Maybe if weren’t such a trainwreck things with Brady could’ve worked out.  Oh well.  He’s much better off with out you, Theresa.  Sorry not sorry that you didn’t get your hands of any of the Kiriakis money.  Of course, Brady’s copy of the annulment papers were also sent to Theresa and she must go deliver them to him immediately…even in her frazzled state.  

They’re sending John to the long-term care facility?  Didn’t Brady say no to that?  Eric read my mind…doesn’t Brady have the final say about what happens with John’s care?  Marlena wants to pay to keep John in the hospital.  Is it just me or does Kayla sound like she has literally no idea what she is talking about?  She’s just saying the lines and has no idea what they mean.  Eric’s leaving town?  But Marlena’s asking him to stay “indefinitely.”  Eric, your mother, sister, and brother all need you.  I don’t think Sami needs his judgey eyes or bull again, but Marlena clearly needs him.  “I know John was the right one for you.”  Could we please not talk about John in the past tense?  He’s not dead.  Nice attempt to talk to Eric, Nicole.  It was about a 6.5.  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  :)  

Ah, Brady’s too busy confronting Kristen.  Honey, go home…or to work…or to the hospital.  She isn’t worth it.  Does she honestly think that she can simply distract Brady with her cleavage?  It’s going to take a whole lot more than a little boob to make Brady forget everything Kristen’s done.  *rolls eyes*  How the hell does Kristen get nylons on with her tracking anklet around her leg????  You can’t just take it off at will.  Brady got a restraining order again her to protect John.  She can’t come within 100 feet of John or her bail will be revoked.  Brady, you aren’t responsible for what happened to John.  Literally or figuratively.  Theresa called John to get him over to the house and then hit him with the poker.  She premeditated her attack against him.  Theresa is responsible.  Now, Kristen’s going to try to make a deal with Brady, huh?  Please take your hands off of Brady, Kristen.  Marlena’s here!  It’s a party!  Uh oh…Kristen and Marlena are alone.  They’re so fantastic together.  Yeah…Brady’s getting his life back in order.  Sure.  I love how much Kristen pushes Marlena’s buttons and Marlena always hits a nerve.  Yep, Kristen’s here to “save” John…in exchange for her freedom.

Daniel is recommending Paige for an internship at the hospital.  Did Daniel just check out Anne’s ass?  Pig.  Is Kayla drunk?  She’s looking off camera.  She just stumbled when she put her hands on Daniel’s desk.  What is going to change everything?!?  Something with John?!?

Now, Eric knows about Nicole’s job offer.  He thinks it’s just “terrific.”  Ugh.  It seems “logical” not seeing each other every day?  Wow, Eric might be a bigger asshole than Daniel.  Uh…I want Nicole “here!”  Oh Eric, go cry into your collar.  

Ugh, Theresa’s at the Kiriakis’ just as Brady arrives home.  And he’s in a vulnerable state and just must make out with her.  Ugh, gross.  Why must we see them together in Brady’s bed?  Will there every be a time where we see WilSon like that?  Nope, if one of them is on top of the other they must be fully or partially clothed and they mustn’t be in their bedroom, couch only.  

It was a WilSon Day!  They made up!  Even though I would’ve liked the fight to stretch out a bit more.  Oh well!  Too bad everyone else is still furious with Will.  Haha.  

Can Eric take a chill pill?  He’s so high-strung and obnoxious.  Yell-whispering (that’s what he does…try and tell me it isn’t) at Nicole every time he sees her is so played out.  If he doesn’t confront his actual feelings for her soon, he’s likely to explode…which I’m not against.  

Just ew to Brady and Theresa.  Poor thing…she’s going to think it means something and it doesn’t.  Why can’t Bricole happen?!?!?

Can John wake up and get better soon?  I’m sick of seeing Kayla.  Her appearance/performance today was bizarre.  

Even though Kristen is evil, she’s also so fantastic!  Haha.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

'til tomorrow!  <3  A
