I went to the station for coffee this morning with the Cleaning Lady, the Crush (I think the song Buttons by the Pussycat Dolls was written for this guy) and a few of the other guys. I really do miss working in that building. I went to my new office and the days just fly by there. Good Lord, I got there at 10 minutes until 7am and the next thing I knew it was noon. I was leaving for the day at 1pm because I had an appointment at the gym at 2pm.
I got to the gym a little early and so the trainer (that would be the Nazi from here on out) decided we would work on my arms today. Biceps and triceps. He then told me he wants me to do the hip adductor and abductor machines every single day. All I could think was “holy fuck.” It’s amazing how many F bombs I can drop while trying to finish my 15 reps of bicep or tricep training. My arms feel like jelly and I’m 100% positive they will be hurting tomorrow.
I noticed that whenever I was on the treadmill, I kept getting shin splints. OUCH is about all I could think of. I wasn’t finishing my cardio workouts cause it fucking hurt. So I talked to the Nazi today and he showed me some stretching to do before getting on the treadmill or if the stretching doesn’t work and I get the shin splints, I’m to pause the machine, get down off of it and stretch them again. Fun for me.
And instead of a straight 30 minutes of treadmill walking, he has me doing 10 minutes total. In that ten minutes, I am to walk as fast as I can ~ if not a slow jog for 30 seconds (WTF?!?!), then walk normal speed for 30 seconds and then set the incline at 15.0 for 30 seconds and keep doing those things for the 10 minutes. Holy fucking shit people. My heartrate shot up and stayed above 155 (my target is 156) the whole 10 minutes. GAH!
The Nazi also wants me doing abs every day (as they allow since I’m still healing from the surgery) and at that moment when he showed me the oblique work he wants me to do, I wanted to string him up by his nose hairs. Just so he would feel a little bit of the pain I do. HAHAHA
I tried something new at Quiznos today, the Honey Bourbon Chicken. Wheat bread, chicken(duh), tomato, lettuce and their two sauces they use. I thought it was going to be kinda of dry, but it wasn’t. It was actually pretty good.
As I’m sure all basketball fans know, the NBA All-Star game and festivities are being held here in Las Vegas in a few weeks. They are cancelling days off for my boss and a few other people to work the ICP (incident command post). They were then in need of clerical support to run the computer stuff. I volunteered. So I will be working 2 weeks straight. From the 11th until the 22nd. The festivities start on the 14th, but I’m not working until the 16th. I’m working 7 hours each day starting on the 16th until the 18th and then 3 hours on the 19th (it’s a holiday so I’ll get double time). I’ll be getting a total of 21 hours overtime for sitting in a room full of cops and watching a computer screen. Fun for me! Very well worth it when I get that paycheck.
The puppy and Josie have been driving me up the fucking wall tonight. They will not leave me alone. Chloe is whimpering and chewing on everything (yes, she’s been fed). Josie is just being a jealous little bitch and whimpering and whining and keeps trying to climb all over me.
I hurt. Don’t they get that? I worked out for an hour today – 30 minutes of that with the Nazi fucking making me do those 3 sets of 15 reps. 2 bicep exercises and 2 tricep exercises. Then he had me do two different oblique exercises. Fucker.
I’m complaining and I’m bitching, but once I get into shape, I’m going to be so loving it and I will be quite happy.
I’m now sitting here watching CSI (have I mentioned I love this show?) and wondering why the pups got so quiet. I think I’ll go find out.
Until next time….
