What to do about today?

Day 25 of 90 Fitness Challenge :D

Right at this very moment I am feeling extremely TIRED! Much of my tiredness comes from not being able to sleep! I have way too much on my mind and I have a neighbour who is extremely inconsiderate. (I really hate that b*tch. Don't judge me she interrupts my sleep with her loudness, but thats neither here nor there) So, I do feel a little cranky today but no so much that I have problems controlling my temper. (Else I would serious stone my neighbour.) Sorry about side tracking

Anyways back to the matters at hand. I have made it to day 25 and I am feeling great about that. I have managed to stay focused as far as exercise is concerned and I have only missed 2 days of the 25 which I think is also amazing. For those who are wondering I did exercise yesterday. I did Zumba Live and Turbo Jam 20min workout. I just couldn't bring myself to take a rest day because I live an extremely sedimentary life! Seriously all I do is lay in bed and watch tv. The only time I get up is to go to the bathroom or get something to eat. I am not one of those persons that lives a busy lifestyle so it's not like I can count taking the stairs at work as exercise. I am like a sloth I move three inches in a (not really but you get the picture.)  But know that I am listening to my body. I am not pushing myself to a breakage point. Also, I am eating at least 1800 calories a day. Sometimes probably  more because I don't track I simply eat what I feel like eating and I try to avoid certain things, especially sugary stuff. 

As far as my eating is concerned I rarely talk about food on my blog for a reason. I don't like restricting myself. Not openly anyways. (Ellen I found my irrational behaviour) I honestly think that when I openly commit to a diet plan (By diet plan I mean way of eating not something that is temporary) that's when I eat at my worse. I have tried to commit to a healthier way of eating but I am not ready to do that yet. Right now I am  taking it slow. I am easing my way into a healthier way of eating.

Everything above I wrote yesterday...  I still hate my neighbour she is really crazy. I think she should be on meds or something. She woke me up at 4am this morning blowing that horn of her BLEAKING car. I am going to flatten her tires and put some feathers in the front of her door. She is so superstitious she will believe that a witch doctor did all that and is trying to work voodoo on her.

Anyways thanks for Reading! 


  1. Hey Shannie, seems like you are dealing with a load right now. My upstairs neighbours are very loud, sounds like they run and drop stuff all night long. I understand how overwhelming taking too much stuff on can be. Just take it one day at a time and don't be too hard on yourself. You also have to take time out to take care of you when things get a little 'too much'. You've been doing great so far ~~~~~~ sending 'you go girl' vibes :) Just pace yourself and things will work out fine. Please, if you flatten her tires and put feathers in her door you have to tape her reaction and post it!! You owe us that satisfaction!!!!

  2. Thanks Toot I really need this message right now. I am used to dealing with stress and stressful situations but sometimes they can get overwhelming and my neighbour is only adding to it right now. Maybe on a good day i wouldn't be so cranky but this week aint the But I promise I am good just had to vent a little.

  3. Shannie, I don't know how you manage to keep such a great sense of humor with an inconsiderate neighbor like that, but it just shows how terrific you are. That kind of thing makes me crazy. I've had similar experiences when I lived in a first level apartment. The woman upstairs had two HUGE dogs up there (animals weren't allowed) and they barked all of the time. Nightmare! So proud of you on day 25, btw. What a great job you're doing. So focused!

  4. Thanks Ellen :D Dealing with inconsiderate people really takes a lot of patients. I am happy with how things are going. All I have to do is find a way to eat more fruits and vegetables and fibre and I think I will definitely be on my way thanks for the encouragement :D

  5. Hi Shannie! I highly recommend investing in some earplugs from the pharmacy--the foam kind shaped like bullets. They really work--just put your alarm as close as possible so you can hear it.

    I had to stay in a hotel with my parents over Christmas, who both snore like strangled jungle cats, and I thought I was going to lose my mind until I bought those earplugs.

    Best of luck and congrats on all you've accomplished!

  6. Wow Leslie THANKS for the suggestion! I will definitely do this. I don't use an alarm to wake up so I don't have to worry about that.
