From December 2001 -- June 2001 I kept a pansy journal entitled "My Little Piece of Cyberspace."
I made huge gains over those 6 months, in both strength and lbm, but also gained more fat than I liked.

A Face to a Name
I plan on using this journal for quite some time and I hope you'll stick with me. Just about everyone knows who I am, but if you don't, this is me.

Thanks! I didn't push my goals 'to the max' in the hopes of surpassing them. However, reaching even those benchmarks by August 7, 2002, in time for my senior year of high school, would be very nice.

Thanks to everyone else as well, support really helps in such a lonely sport as ours!

I had chest/triceps yesterday. It was pretty low volume by my standards because I had slept two hours the night before, but I'm still a little sore, which, regardless of what it means, is nice. Kimpy--my bench is doing fine, thanks. ;):) I will probably try for a couple reps with the 40 pounders next week.

I really should be getting more sleep. All I have left to do is get through finals, and June 11th I am free. Except of course, the 8am June 12th NHS officer meeting that was conviniently scheduled on the first morning of summer for our poor six souls.
Hunger level today was nonexistent.

Damn scheduling conflict for next year is causing me to lose my copy editor position on the yearbook staff...instead of publication design, I'm forced to take programming. I'm fighing with the photography department to allow a higher-weighted photography class so that I can take that instead. :mad:

Comments
Thanks for everyone's support, it really does help a lot. :thumbup: I'll try my best not to dissapoint you.
B&I--lol!
Robboe--the lyrics are from Bad Religion's "Broken." I really like that band. :) As for calories, I wasnt hungry, and this bad sleep schedule is messing with my hunger signals. Today they were acting up in the opposite direction though.
Kimpy--Thanks! Nope, there are no other classes I could take that are the appropriate weight other than Programming. Damn. I'm fighting though. Talked to two guys from the photography department and they seem to be all for it, but the administration hates the idea. If it doesnt work out next week, I'll keep fighting in September--maybe they'll be more receptive after the split. As for party...haha...I'm going to have one at my house, haven't decided when yet. Bring those weed infused brownies you're always baking. ;)
Doc--Definitely.

Tommorow I've two finals...I'll be up forever. If I get more than 13 questions wrong on my math final I'll get a B for the year and lose valedictorianship. :( *suddenly finds religion and starts praying*

Notes
Well, I just finished my junior year of high school. Finished it. Just like that. Endured some gruesome testing, fought with some administration, and finally said screw it all...Walked out never to return again.

Oh wait, I have an NHS officer meeting tommorow at 8am. 3,000 of my peers will be sleeping while I groggily return to that foggy building I just sped from. But hey, we're being bribed with fresh doughnuts and bagels which means staying in ketosis will be a lot more fun tommorow!! :rolleyes:

Anyway, wbb is back! :clap: What a great way to start a journal...clear the old 6 month one, write up a clean one, give it a decisive name, do one entry...and BOOM, you're cursing at some British bloke you've never met for a couple days. ;) I don't plan to miss any more journal days unless there are excrutiating circumstances. Yesterday, for example, my sister's pet rabbit bit her finger. Deathlike wails distracted me from my non-studying for a good half hour.

Summer awaits. I've found some new writing inspiration the other day as I was *ahem* studying for those finals, and I hope to devote some time to a couple of quick essays or something. I also have nothing standing in the way of all my workouts at the "big" gym!!
Oh wait, there's the 20 mile walk.
Yes, getting blackmailed through car use is a new hobby of mine.

"Can I have the car mom?"
"Yes. Jane, I've been wanting you to see this Russian film..."
"Mom, not right now, I just finished my junior year."
"I understand that. But I have a simple request that I'd like fulfilled."
"Mom, if I don't fulfill this request, you know I'm screwed."
"Yes. Your point?"
:bang:

Summer will rock!

Life doesn't get any easier.
Even though HS seems like a bitch, enjoy it. College=same thing. Grad school... um well same.
The complexities of life continue to increase until you retire...lol

NOw the real reason for my post- I was in the NHS. Little did I know we had officers and i sure have no idea what they would do?
can you enlighten me?

Jane
06-11-2002, 06:40 PM
Aw, did my post sound too pessimistic?

What a shame. ;) Actually doc, I really like high school. I just like complaining about it too. You wouldn't want me to start writing in cheerleader language now would you.

Actually, I really like life too. But I'm not going to go and like, admit that. People might punch my smiling joyful face out. :D

Well, as the secretary of that great thing known as nhs, I get to take lots of notes! Hooray! And...I record ALL of the attendance to...well, everything! And...I get to keep a cool notebook! The rest of the officers..well, we organize stuff. And email people. And yell at them. And hold fun meetings that everyone loves coming to! Best of all...we make them tutor stupid kids if they dont fulfill duties!

Optimism...it's an ugly, ugly thing. ;)

ok cool, just wanted to make sure you were enjoying yourself. If you get a b, will it matter in the big picture? Absolutely not!

06-11-2002, 06:57 PM
Aaah...but doc, B's matter. I can't go losing my class rank. For some reason, I feel an intense urge to address my impatient classmates on graduation night. It's been something of a...goal for me. I like the stage. I want it. Lol.

And NHS members are required to participate in several nhs activities, which include typical school community service stuff like running the graduation ceremony (a class of 1,000), doing back to school night, school touring, student tutoring, etc. We make sure those lazy honor society members show up for the upcoming events meetings and then participate in the upcoming events. If not, I make funny little marks in my notebook! *muahaha*

As witnessed above, I have supreme cooking skills and a rich variety in my diet. I'm not your typical eat-the-same-three-foods-day-after-day bber, no siree bob. Please note the word "nutrition" above my list of hot dogs. Ah the irony.

My meeting went well. I stumbled in, sat down, mumbled something about already having had breakfast (a blatant lie), and pretended to scribble the meeting minutes. My hand proceeded, without my guidance, to draw multiple circular shapes that strangely resembled the bagels my peers were devouring. If CKD's had a warning label, it would say Warning: DO NOT MIX active ingriedients: Ketosis and Social Activities. A miserable sleepy Jane may result and little sisters may suffer the consequences.

The rest of my first day of summer was spent playing the piano in preparation for my lesson with a crinkly orange-haired russian man. He has a tendency to violentely flinch every time I hit the wrong note and shout "Jenia Jenia Jenia!" repeatedly, sometimes accompanying his spasms with psychosis-inducing pencil tapping. I am starting to think this ritual is supposed to force me into never messing up a single note ever again.

:D Have a nice day! :D

i would suggest, given your love of weiners, to purchase some high quality ones from a good grocer

Hebrew national is a favorite of mine

When i was doing some ketogenic dieting, i found myself cooking some strange meals. Nothing like chicken breast smothered in oil...


You didn't really want one of those bagels... they're just balls of flour, yuk.

Now a quick question, I've been hearing of the obesity problem in schoolkids. In general is your high school fat? What about obsessive thinness amoungst females?

Well doc, I can answer that pretty definitively. I live in a middle-upper class, 99.8% white, 5% non-christian-denomination area. The people at my school ALL LOOK THE SAME. Most females are very thin. All dye their hair the exact same shade of blond and purchase similar clothing in the same 3 stores in one of two area malls. And most are thin, yes. It's like they walked out of a factory.
My thinking is that the children obesity rates and whatnot are rising quicker in southern states, and perhaps in poorer, more culturally diverse areas.

G-B, I ate a lot of hot dogs today because there was nothing else to eat. Our freezer is stocked with items such as "Taquitos" and "Huge Frozen Hunk of Pork Fat." My grandmother baked some fresh bread though...:bang:

Good! Put this on your grocery list. A Tyson Pre-roasted chicken. All you have to do is heat it and separate it into portions. It doesn't even dry out in the microwave.
I take that back...buy two. ;)

Jane
06-12-2002, 09:13 PM
Wait, you mean like, a whole chicken? :scratch:
My grandmother buys whole chickens sometimes, but they scare me. I prefer harvesting the skinless boneless chicken breast tree.

Still, I shall look for this 'pre-roasted' dealie tommorow. Anything that keeps me from turning on heating appliances is a "good thing."

The thing is that I have to watch how much protein I eat, otherwise I'll be bumped out of keto. So I can't go replacing ALL of those hot dogs with chicken breasts. What to do what to do....

Just kidding. :D

**** as long as were exchanging keto recipies, how about bacon (nitrite free of course)

take a 1/2 lb and cook it in the microwave (layer on paper towels)
remove the bacon, keep 1/2 for later
take the other half, add some full fat cheese, drizzle a little olive oil, and and microwave further
Enjoy!

Now with the other half, crumple it up into bits
dump into a saucepan with some diced onion (just a wee little for flavour) and olive oil. sautee for a few minutes.

Add 3/4 cup of chicken broth (has no carbs) and 1 cups of heavy cream (yummy). simmer on low heat.

=Yummy, bacony, creamy, fatty soupy stuff

Holy crap, so many hot dogs. I love hot dogs so much I could drink that ****, nizzy.

I watched 'Baby Boy' today. there is an interesting scene in which a man and a woman get into a fight over his extramarital affairs and he slaps her to get her to stop hitting him.

She is crying on the floor and he picks her up, carries her into the bedroom, saying he's sorry the whole time, puts her on the bed and snuggles her. It was a very sweet scene to see a would be savage inner-city thug be so sweet and sincere.

Until he takes her pants and shirt off and starts to...


WTF were they thinking when they made that? Am I suppose to FEEL for him? It was one of the most sickening scenes I'd ever seen in a movie, EVER.


I mean...Yeah, I think Hebrew nationals are good. Nathan's are also excellent (available only on the east coast :()

First of all, thanks to everyone for your various commentary. It's highly amusing and gives me something to do now that I'm not pretending to study 24/7. Oh yeah, it's motivating too. Even the burping reference. :thumbup:

Xraygirl and doc--Thanks for helping me with this whole "variety" issue, and the concept of "cooking." Very much appreciated, I'll have a full report post-grocery-adventure.

Budiak--Lol! I feel your pain. I suggest sharing this incident with the folks in the "morality" thread. Doing so should help relieve any negativity you may be experiencing, because reading that damn thread tends to induce an immediate need to run into a wall and pass out.

Nathan's is actually the brand I usually use, but I finished the bulk package last week so I am reduced to the "Oscar Meyer Lean Beef Franks." This brings back memories of my youth, when I walked 30 kilometers through the snow to get to junior high, and my cold friends poked my side repeatedly to get me to perform the "Oscar Meyer Weiner Song" in Russian. This gave grandfather Alexander a great workout as he rolled over and over in his Moscow grave.

Sleep: 8 hours

Legs
DB Bench Press 1x10@60, 1x4@70
Err. I'm retarded. First of all, I was forced into distracting myself with benching while some weirdo was occupying the squat rack. Second of all, I grabbed the wrong weight for the first set. No wonder it seemed so easy. :mad:

Squat 1x8@45, 2x6@115, 1x8@95, 1x8@45
Ok, this week was really really weak. I was supposed to do 125 for 8 but this guy commented on my form once and I got really paranoid. So I lowered the weight and did these slowly, watching myself the whole time. Fcuk.

Lunge 2x6@100
Hehe. Having one leg bear the brunt of 100 pounds is fun. It was so fun I almost fell over.

Leg Curl 2x6.5@110

Leg Press 1x6@230, 2x8@180
I lowered the weight from last session here as well, so I could go slower and deeper.

Calf Press 2x15@270, 1x15@270
Burn!

Leg Press half-ROM 1x8@270
I'm not sure what I was doing here. But I wanted to feel what 270 felt like, so just sort of did a half-ROM motion for 8 reps. Going for pump or something I guess. :D

Hack Squat 1x8@160
Just for fun, to see how heavy I could get myself to breathe or something. I was obviously dead by this point.


Notes
So many exciting things happend today, I don't know where to begin! My body woke up at 7:30am, just for kicks. But this was ok, because...I have the car all day today! I spent all morning going to the gym, gymming, coming back from the gym, and running all sorts of errands! You silly bums don't understand how wonderful this freedom is. Sure I had to use my cell a minimum of twenty times to touch base with my mother, but hey, I could play music at ridiculously high volumes, just because I could.

Anyway, as promised: My Adventures in Super Fresh. Among other things, I got myself some Hebrew Hot Dogs, swiss cheese, and TEA. I even found that Tyson preroasted chicken and don't plan on sharing it with anyone. But most importantly, I discovered these amazing 90 calorie turkey sausages! Gone are the days when I would consume 4 italian sausages (300+ kcal each) as my entire caloric intake for the day. Now I can replace "3 hot dogs" with "3 sausages" :nod: Progress, people. Aren't you proud?

I plan on continuing the morning's excitement by rounding up my five craziest friends and packing them into my car. Read: Kimpy's coming. :) If I stop posting, give god a shout-out for me.

Nutrition
1: 2 eggs, .5tsp olive oil, hot dog
2: 1 turkey sausage, 1 slice swiss cheese

Good for you! The thought of eating that many hot dogs was making me bilious. Change is good, yes? Have fun with your friends!

Jane

Change is the only constant. :)
Thanks for the tip, I think I'm going to try this "whole chicken" idea out tommorow, and basically pick on it throughout the day.

For those following my adventures in independent woman land, I'm calling again tommorow. Was going to do it tonight, but...yeah. I stalled and oop it's too late.

It's like they walked out of a factory.
My thinking is that the children obesity rates and whatnot are rising quicker in southern states, and perhaps in poorer, more culturally diverse areas.

thanks for adding me into that list jane
i like all of this "most" stuff.. and i like the clothing area too.
yea of course we "all look the same".. yea right

I added you in there? Funny that I don't see your name....

Nor do I see my name...

But if you look through our yearbook, you'll see that I'm right. Almost everyone dyes their hair, there is a grand total of 3 shopping malls, from which most girls visit the same stores. A&F, American Eagle, Xoxo, Bebe, Express, etc. I've matched clothes with people more times than I can count, mainly stuff from Express like those jeans everyone has. Most girl straighten their hair, have straight hair, or want straight hair. And most people are thin. What's there to argue?

Wow, I really really wish you were right.

But Titan, I'm afraid it's not "seventies" but "seventy." As in, a 35 in each hand. I havent tested my DB max yet, but hey, I'm getting there, getting there. :)

Sleep:7.5 hours
I woke up at 6:30am, after going to bed around midnight. I was slightly confused by this until a hunger pang hit me in the stomach and all confusion was cleared up. I proceeded to consume about 1,000 cals of breakfast over the next hour. Full, warm, and happy, I collapsed back into bed to sound of pouring rain outside. The rest of the day my meals were pretty small.

Notes
Well, I can't walk. That's always fun. :) Shuffling around the day after leg day, inching myself down the staircase, cringing at the thought of sitting down on a potty, and making funny sounds when trying to accomplish the difficult task of bending my knees and retaining balance as I try to land in a chair. :eek: Gave my old babushka a hug today.
Oh, oh, to suit my hardcore alter ego: Damn, the level of DOMS in my lower body was severe today. Hopefully slightly raising my caloric intake in response will help ease the pain, which is only slightly interfering with my ability to move. At all.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tryska--Thanks for the ideas! I actually have been making turkey slice-cream cheese roll ups, but that's a new twist I'll try. And eggs I've been eating a lot of (in olive oil), but I am going to go with this cheese and bacon idea as well. My consumption of eggs is a running battle in this household.

Doc--"Super Jenia." I like that. When I'm a superhero, I'll use it. Super Jenia...flying into impoverished households worldwide and furiously making omelets for all! :thumbup: Here, my children, protein and essential fatty acids for the eternal battle against muscle catabolism!
You can be the arch enemy who eats entire roasted chickens for one meal and limits my egg supplies. :D

Titan--A couple of months ago I would have agreed with you on the topic of hot dogs. "Hot dogs are gross." --Not if you're on a ketogenic diet. :) And thanks, by the way. :thumbup:

I'd like to see Jane put up 70s on db bench. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I'd hesitate to ask her out, think about it for half an hour, then turn around to see her gone.

Then I'd go home and sulk all night because I missed what might have been my only chance at true love, and now I'll have to settle for second best. IHOP.

Love those pancakes.

I wouldnt though, because of Rule 1.
Rule #1: I'm a big pussy.

Theres a girl at the gym who's ALWAYS checking me out. Always.
Of course I'm checking her out too, and we make lots of eye contact. I'm sure nothing will happen. See rule 1.


If you have any questions about my love life, stick your head in a bucket of cold water until you pass out, and have a friend to drag you out of it so you dont drown in your own vomit.
STEAMY, HUH!





Sometimes I watch you sleep.

Jane
06-14-2002, 08:38 PM
Lmao! Budiak, you are going to make a very positive addition to my journal. Please, never hesistate to add commentary. :thumbup:

You WILL see Jane put up the 70s on DB bench. Just give me some carbohydrates, calories, and time. DB bench is a favorite of mine, I'm definitely pushing a lot of progression.
Of course, this has absolutely nothing to do with making up for the intensity of my BB bench, which is equivalent to the aforementioned love life, minus the vomit. The puniness of that weight is definitely not enough to induce a hiccup, let alone vomit.

Eye contact eh? Funny, I've been having an eye contact affair with a certain individual for a couple of months now. Then again, I often don't wear my glasses so perhaps I am imagining pupils were no pupils are. Most likely, I just have something on my face.
Over the last two days, I've been attempting to break the trusted and steadfast Rule Number One. Unfortunately, my last two attempts at picking up the damn phone and "taking action," have left me with an imprint of his mothers voice on the answering machine and a brief but pleasant chat with a very angry, very sleepy older brother.

Screw IHOP, fall in love with my babushka. Her pancakes are illegal in 17 states.

Budiak
06-14-2002, 09:03 PM
Wait, you're got someone's PHONE NUMBER and you're not acting?

I am absolutely astonished. I cannot..I...Help.

What the **** is the matter with you? Good lord, if I had a phone number, I sure as **** stinks wouldnt be sitting here alone on a friday night eating brown rice and chicken breast.
I'd be eating chicken and brown rice with a totally fly honey.

With an AWESOME ass. But thats not important.
Not important like having a face isnt important.

And after we finish the food, we sit down on the deck on my love seat with an ice cold bottle of diet coke, and we listen to Metallica all night long.She will attempt to jump his bones, but he will protest, because he will not allow her to offend my religious sensibilities.
Then, Budiak drives her home in his Grabber orange '70 Mach 1, walks her up to her doorstep and kisses her on the cheek goodnight.



Ummm...WTF was I talking about before?

Oh yeah, number. You've got to call that number.
Or call me, I'm ******* lonely.

Notice please, that I've acted not once, but twice. :) Both times with unfortunate consequences. I feel rejected and I haven't even asked anything yet...
In my version, we drive around listening to a mix of green day, metallica, bad religion, and dave matthews band. And there's no rice involved, because I abhor rice. And he doesnt have a nice ass. And I probably have more LBM. But hey, that's O-K.

Did I mention that my grandmother made pierogi today? Yes, oh yes she did. For those not familiar with these amazing creations, they are just about the number one best russian food of all russia and russia is pretty damn big and they're pockets made of sweet dough and different fillings with an eggwhite glaze and baked to perfection and the smell fills the house and I'm stopping this long run on sentence now, yes. :) When normal people get bored, they watch TV. When my babushka gets bored, she bakes ridiculously amazing pierogi. :help:

Actually, I'm pretty good about resisting them, but the smell is killer. Usually revvs up my hunger/cravings insanely and forces me to bump my calories up. Quite the nuisance.

G-B
06-14-2002, 10:32 PM
Pierogis are scrumptious. The ones filled with potato and onion are the best.

Jane quit :bang: and just give the guy your number next time you see him. I am sure he will get the clue. Just make it blatantly obvious that you are interested. :study:

Jane
06-14-2002, 10:41 PM
Ah....G-b, these are the dessert type of pierogis. You've probably never had them, because they cant really be frozen. The dough is sweet, and the filling is either a sweet warm apple filling or chopped hardboiled egg and cabbage. Sounds weird, but its definitely the number one russian food. :)

I suck at being obvious. Too afraid of rejection. :) I'm a-workin' on it.

06-15-2002, 01:20 AM

Ok, update. I'm really very angry right now. Seething, might be the word to use. I've been laying low all day, and just went and apologized to my mother, in the sincerest way I could. She said that she'll see in a couple of days if I've been "good" (whatever that means) and then 'maybe' I can go to the gym.

This is really very unfair. I'm really a pretty good kid. I get decent grades, I don't smoke, drink, or stay out late. Hell, I don't even go out as often as I could. The one thing that really really matters to me--my gym trips--just 3 a week, is what is being used as blackmail.
Take the car, ground me, take away my money, my clothes, my computer, do whatever you want...but why mess with my mental and physical health like this? Especially given my history?

damn jenia, hang in there kid, your mom is just looking to maintain control on you by controlling what is important to you.

you're almost 18 and soon to be at college. Things will change, independance is just around the corner.

Meanwhile you can get your workout from stuff around the house. Do some pushups, find some heavy objects and pull them for back work. Do some deep knee bends with a backpack full of bricks or dirt or something like that.

Lmao@backpack full of bricks or dirt. Then I'll get sent off somewhere for sure. :D

It IS a valid idea. I actually just did some pushups to work off agression. :) A positive here is that every time my schedule for training is broken I come back ready to soar over my personal bests. So yeah, I'll keep at it. Thanks.

Not that I agree with what your mother has done. You're a damn good woman, I don't think your mother has any clue how lucky she is. She could have a kid like.... well... like me. bwahahahaa..

Don't let it get you down, you're better than that.

This time of life is one of the more difficult ones, as you want to be an adult and have all of the privilages and responsibilities that entails. However, authority figures are always there ready and willing to assert their power and control.
My parents were the same way. I'd only add to belial in saying that your mom could've had someone like me. Drugs, booze, smoking, truancy... The only thing that reassured her was that i always worked hard to get good marks in school.
Now that i am older my mom still tries to influence the way i live, but there is little she can do...

parents do some weird things without looking at the big picture.
sometimes they take the control thing too far.. even my mom admits that sometimes.
hmm lets see.. if your mom does something that bothers you out of nowhere... do something really good and she will be surprised! clean your room out of nowhere.. or.. help her study her sdl/d8 bla bla bla book :)

Anyways, your mom is a coward. If she really wanted to punish you, she'd sit there and make you sit in the same room where she is and do nothing, thats what my mom did. My parents never hit me but holy **** the MIND GAMES! I'd rather be slapped on the ass with a paddle any day. Now I'm obsessed with robots and zombies.

Hey, lookit. No workout. Yup, I'm still locked up in my tower, drinking my last can of diet coke. Yes, you read that right. My last can of diet coke. I sneaked a couple of twelve packs in under my bed. Yes, under my bed, because I am "not allowed" to drink diet soda. Sure they're room temperature and get a little dusty, but hey, this stuff is the mind altering substance that allows me to tolerate the daily adventures of life.

Jane=rebel.

I'm looking for ideas for cheap keto foods that can be bought in bulk and have relatively easy storage. So far my list for governor's school food is:
1. mayo
2. tuna

I was planning on bringing my jug of olive oil, but I doubt I can swallow that stuff on a daily basis. It's really a rather difficult game, if you've ever played it.

Oh, I also rebelled by using some self-tanner. Mum says those chemicals are real dangerous for skin.

You're in school.





Wow, I feel awesome. :D
...
Anyway, I know what you're saying. My mother has never really assumed her formal "caretaker" roles. My grandmother runs our household, and my mother works a lot, leaving me on my own just about all the time. This is fine because I have always been independent and often used to wind up being her caretaker, but it's when she decides to suddenly jump in and order me to do something, often something irrational, like eat less eggs, I just don't feel compelled to listen and obey like a robot with no thought of my own on the matter.

less eggs... now..
jane, are you still allowed to do stuff like go to the mall?
cause if you can.. i can take you to my gym and you can lift there, or i can always.. drop you off at your gym, then go to the mall and pick you back up eh?
i can do that and your mom wont know right??
i wouldnt tell her!

Anger Management: Take One
Bodybuilding is a wonderful form of self-improvement, but I've decided over the past couple days to take this concept to the next level and work on anger-management. My room is filled with the sounds of smooth jazz, yoga tapes, fake but attractive cactuses (cactii?), and those Instant-Feng-Shui-for-$29.99 plastic running water fountains.

I refuse to go in it.

Instead I went to the kitchen, to prepare my very favorite food--eggs. I use the only "nonstick" pan in the household to prepare them on a daily basis. I tried microwaving an egg once, but it exploded into a big smelly egg mess. Like so::micro: To avoid such mishaps, I ask the grandmother robot on a bi-daily basis to limit her use of the "nonstick" pan as much as possible. This is a very possible possibility, given that grandmother has a pot and pan fetish.

I waltzed into the kitchen, smiling, ready to fulfill the desires of my starving tummy, and humming my little anger-management song. I then saw my "nonstick" pan being grossly consumed by a big, smelly pile of raw, defrosting, dripping hamburger meat, requiring hours of meticulous cleaning in painfully hot water before being grudgingly used for the cooking of eggs, which tasted rather funky by the way. :eek:

*sigh*

It's a good thing my temper-control book says you can always try again tommorow. :hide:

Well, you can do walking lunges up and down the living room, single-leg calve raises on a step, hang onto the top of a door to do chins and prop your feet on the stairs to do decline push-ups. It drive your mother ape-****. Of course, to be totally effective, you are going to have to wait until she gets home from work to do all of this.

Lucky for me, the funniest and most ironic thing that could possibly happen has happend. I've been keeping my ketosis secret because I didnt want to face nagging and irrational, unsupported argument from my parental units in case they were against the idea for some reason. I've been very successful with this, since they don't know what ketosis is.

Anyway, my mother has just announced her New Diet.
--"I don't eat sweet products...um, I don't eat sweet products...let me see here...no sweet products, no rice or bread....no fruit either, yeah that's it."
--"No carbohydrate at all then?" I ask.
--"Nope."

Lmao at the above.
I know you mean well Titan...but man, if you only knew. You see the politics of divorced parents are highly complex. My father (aka her arch enemy) was a very scientific, logical sort of person. Lucky for me, I am as well, which makes for great fireworks in my relationship with my mother. Any time I bring her proof, science, or start talking scientific terms at her, she *stops*, stares at me, and then sighs sadly as she walks away.
"You're just like your father."

She hasn't heard a word of the science I've been giving her over the years.

The printouts I've made for her? Well you know that destruction of the Amazon rainforest thing? Yeah, that's me abusing my printer.

Today I tried to talk glycogen at her, to explain why I eat bread once a week and to teach her about the diet SHE will be following, and she said something about me needing to eat the cherries and grapes she bought yesterday. :scratch:

Anyway, all of this is quite amusing to me. :D

My mom is a runner, who weight lifts but thinks everything should be done in high reps, and cardio should be done for several hours every day. She is forcing me to do cardio twice a week, which isnt bad, but i talked her down from 5x a week. Dont get me started on teh diet crap.

I see how you are in a real bad place though. With the not listening, even though she is attempting the same diet as you. What a bitch. Well stick with it, it will all work out. She will have to let you do what you like sometime. Keep with the ass-kissing emails :)

PS, does anybody know the best way to strip paint off of a car? I dont want to sand because I'm a big clumsy oaf, and chemical stripping is nasty business.
I hear there is an attachment that you can mount to an electric drill that is pretty much just a bunch of rigid plastic teeth that rip the paint right off. I was thinking of picking one up but I need to make sure it exists!

I have been reading your journal actually, and I'm glad your hair is fine. Consider it a failed attempt at ribbin' ya. No one understands the delicate relationship between hair and owner better than I, and Kimpy can vouch for this.

This is a great quote. This is something that you can monogram on a shirt and workout in. Man, I really like that alot. Stand by your quote Jane, and you'll make those rough 2 weeks.

Quick questions:

When you move out, where are you gonna get the money to support yourself?

Do you have a job?

Will it be from your parents?

If so, wouldn't they still be supporting you?

LOL the reason I ask is 'cause when I too, talk all big about moving out but when at the end of they day, it's still gonna be them that is gonna fund my education :( so I'm still relying on them :(

Notes
Well, today wasn't a complete waste. I did some bodyweight squats and pushups, which felt kind of pointless but that's ok. :)
I also decided that if I'm going to be cooped up, I might as well improve the arrangement of my jail cell. So I fought a battle with my several bookcases today, feeling only slightly like Don Quixote. This was a pretty good workout in itself since I essentially transferred an entire bookcase of books from the top floor to the basement. Phoof.
This was also a pointless activity given that I'm vacating the premises on June 29th, exactly 8 days from now, for a good five weeks, but that's ok too. :)
------------------
Doc--Thanks. :) I'm just dissapointed that after looking forward to ending school and having all the time in the world to train and eat perfectly, I can't get to a gym or grocery store.
------------------
Budiak--Lol! Actually, I seriously need to visit Cali. It feels kind of funny to have been a lot of other places, but never even seen LA or Hollywood or anything like that. Other than the Statue of Liberty and NYC, that's like *the* thing for foreign people to go be in awe of.

PS. So which character from Orange County would you say you are most like?

Please don't pick Jack Black. Please? :)
-----------------
FreakyMutation--Yeah, I really like that quote as well. I'm taking that t-shirt suggestion very seriously...It is actually a great idea. Anytime I'm about to have a workout and I'm feeling down for some reason, I can wear that shirt and remind myself.

Actually, I can't count. It's not even two weeks, only 8 days. Of course, added to my previous 7 it makes...uh...15. Just a shame, because I know when I go to Governor's School my training will be limited as well. Darn that silly thing called life, gets in the way of everything. :)
-------------------
Celestial--I take xenadrine mostly for energy and appetite suppression during the long school days. Now that school is over I'm still taking it because I'm hoping it will help out a little with the fat loss, or at least prevent my stomach from rumbling when my grandmother does her nonstop-cooking thing. :)
-------------------
Eric--I understand what you're saying. There is of course no way I'm going to be able to fund my education, unless I settle for one of the smaller colleges that will lure me in with scholarships and/or a good financial aid package. I really don't want to do this after working pretty damn hard for so many years, and neither do my parents. So the education they will take care of somehow, no matter what.

I will have a job when I move out. I am not a big spender at all, and require very little. I shop for clothes about four times a year, and eat pretty simply. All I really need is a roof over my head and a car to make my trips to the grocery store and gym.

Also remember that I don't have parents per se, but sworn enemies of a mother and father. My mother will be signing the Honda Accord over to me, and my dad is considering funding the grocery bill (he's "on my side" by default). Adding whatever I make to the mix, I think my living on my own is quite feasible. What I'm really concerned about is having complete control over my day-to-day actions. :)

Still not quite sure what I did. :scratch:

That's just the thing. I mean, I understand that I talk back (and always have) but keeping me inside for two weeks like this just kind of landed on my head. I'm not quite sure how she came up with this so suddenly. Also the fact that I eat eggs pisses her off, because apparently my cholesterol is high and the "eggs will kill your liver!" Ironically enough, she's doing a keto diet too. Whaddaya know.

Oh and, the car is not a right "its a priveldge." But considering that I rarely ever get to use it anyway, I don't see how I could think otherwise... :scratch:

jane as far as i'm concerned talking back is inevitable at your age

part of asserting your independence (or at least trying to-until parental units remind you of just how dependant you are)

Jane
06-21-2002, 10:27 PM
Doc--You know, you're right.

I know kids who never talk back, and quite honestly I don't know how they're going to fare in the real world and whatnot.

Besides, it's kind of funny the things I talk back ABOUT. :) It's also kind of funny that my independence didn't bother her before, darnit. She must be on drugs.

A Cheerful, Optimistic Journal Entry
During the school year I tend to approach weekends with a sort of dread, due to the sharp increase of traffic in the house and the inevitable arguments that arise, usually involving me and someone else.
HOWEVER, this has been one of the most pleasant Saturdays I've had in a while, mostly due to a newfound appreciation of freedom and a certain jailbreak. :)
In the morning I got all my work back from the art show, and it fit perfectly in my new, reorganized, sparkling clean room. I ought to take a photo before the mandatory week of upkeep is over.
The jailbreak was this evening, while my mother was at a computer class...I was ecstatic to be out, to say the least. ;) To make things even better, the movie "Minority Report" was really truly GREAT. A very, very smart movie. Not horribly emotional or profound, but it wasn't meant to be. The plot was genius, in my opinion, and all setting/atmosphere details were quality. A 50's film noir set in the future...kept me enthralled the whole time.
I've also decided I'm the most retarded girl when it comes to relationships, but some of you already knew that...

The irony, though, is that thoughts of the gym kept interrupting my evening. :( I'm crossing fingers for a heavy duty begging session tommorow...There WILL be workout details in this journal dammit!!

Mistranslations
In a Bangkok dry cleaner's:
"Drop your trousers here for best results."

Similarly, from the Soviet Weekly:
"There will be a Moscow Exhibition of Arts by 15,000 Soviet Republic painters and sculptors. These were executed over the past two years."

In a Rome laundry:
"Ladies, leave your clothes here and spend the afternoon having a good time."

In a Copenhagen airline ticket office:
"We take your bags and send them in all directions."

Are you following a variation of NHE or what?

This looks extremely similiar to what I used to eat while following NHE months back. Lotta string cheese, Italian sausage, etc.

Balls, I dont know why, but 'Minority Report' is the second most unappealing movie of the year to me. The first most is 'Sum of all Fears'. It was really a tossup. I have noticed just how limited Cruise's range of acting ability is, and he is highly overrated as a romantic character as well. He is cold in his facial expressions, and when he gets a closeup, its the same ******* squinty eyed grimace, wide eyed shock, or pansy smile.

But thats just me. I wont work with him, because I dont think he's worth 20 mil.
However, I DO think Schwarzeneggar is worth 30 mil. The man is worth his weight in GOLD!

I got turkey franks (my dad got them for me) and they have 3 grams of crabs in each of them:( I had one for breakfast weith some cheese so I am already up to 5 grams of carbs with my first meal:( This is really hard to figure out....will I eventually get the hang of it?

More like a variation of CKD Monstar. :) I've been doing regular keto eating (under 20g carbs a day), below maintenance calories, with one low fat carbohydrate day thrown in every 6-7 days. The food I eat now is pretty crappy nutrition wise, but I keep reminding myself that it is temporary.

I checked the brand today, and I eat Wampler Turkey Franks, which have 2g of fiber as their only carbs. Fiber doesn't count, so that works out well.

Sometimes I have Nathan's or Oscar Mayer hot dogs which have I believe 1g of carb or less. I always assume 1g even if a processed food says 0 because chances are there are fillers in there but they just rounded down a decimal to 0.

It's really not hard, and you do get very used to it. All I suggest is a nice long trip to the grocery store. It will be weird at first to look at foods you have never allowed yourself before (mayo was SO STRANGE for me), but you do get used to it. So explore as many items as you can, and dig up those low carb foods. Go to the hot dog section and compare the brands, picking the one lowest in carbs. Grab some frozen sausage, but check the nutrition facts. Look at weird but possible options, like whipped cream cheese, which I actually eat with a spoon if I have a sweet craving or something. Pick out the lowest carb cheeses as well. Eventually you'll get an assortment of items that will allow you to stay under 20g a day. I'm not a cooker, but there are TONS of recipes out there, so maybe do a search and give them a try?

And remember, it will feel very strange to consume so much fat, but you are getting NO CARBS...calories in vs. calories out is the bottom line here. Good luck! :)

Thanks man. Yeah, I recognize their (well, her, since this is really only my mother we're talking about) support of the household and the priveledged life I lead. I'm very fortunate to live where I live and to have the dreams and goals that I have, and to have an....interesting family in general. I'm usually not like this, and I respect basic rules she sets about just about anything except for diet/exercise. I guess this is such a sensitive issue for me and I can understand her concerns and lack of trust, but its hard to accept being kept from my workouts and sit quietly still. If only it was about something else...

Lol. Actually, I never thought I'd be so thankful for having my mom's boyfriend in the house. Usually he is a non entity and we really don't talk, but tonight he took the giant step of actually agreeing to LISTEN to my side of the story.

After a very, very long evening of talking with him (my mother napping nearby, mumbling something every now and then,) I think I finally have gotten them to understand how important this is for me, and that I will never be "normal," and that I really need their support in reaching my goal.

I think that thanks to him, there is this new addition of sanity in the whole matter, and I hope (but don't want to jinx myself) that they will not support, but at least, thankfully, no longer stand in the way of my goals. :)

Gym tommorow. After nearly 2 weeks of no workouts, and about ten months of fighting about my gym going in general.

Thats cool. CKD and NHE are actually very very similar. Well in many ways at least. Both low-carb, both high-fat, both with refeeds / carb-ups, etc. So youre just doing an entire refeed day once a week huh? That sound like it would work well for fat-loss and all that. Is that youre current goal?

Anyway good luck with your goals. :thumbup::thumbup:

Because I'm a ******* retard who has spent all week eating who knows what. Carbs included. I'm not going to bitch about it here, or moan, or curse myself off because I don't think that will do much good. I've done it enough on my own, trust me. I really shouldn't even be hanging around wbb at all. I hate hypocrites.

I did get two awesome workouts in though, which felt amazing but was immediately negated by the multiple screw ups that followed. I'm feeling kind of numb about this whole thing.

The good thing is that I'm pretty much back to regular now, but I won't be able to post today or tommorow as I get set up at Pittsburgh University for the next five weeks.

At Pitt, my schedule will be crazy. Lifting on weekends only, AT BEST. My diet...well, I'm stocking up on canned goods and mayo. I really don't know what is going to happen, but I'm hoping to make the best of it. I'll have an update on my situation hopefully Monday.

Still feeling numb. Why don't I care? Where is my perfectionism? My motivation? My goals? I don't know. I really don't know. *shrug*

Dont beat yourself up to bad, we are human and we all have done that. Last night I ate so many carbs that it wasnt even funny. I cant help how much I crave them during my time of the month...anyways just start again. I doubt you did any real damage. The good thing is it can be fixed, just have to stay positive. I beat mysef up to, but then again, it doesnt do much. Good Luck girlie and try to keep in touch on here when you can:)

I am a senior at Pitt, I totally love it and congrats on Gov. school, WAY TO GO!!! and I totally understand how you feel about the diet situation, being on a college campus can totally make it difficult, I lived in a sorority house last year and the campus food eatery's aren't the best, but if you want any sugguestion about places to go and eat drop me a line, also are you guys allowed to use the Pitt gym's, because lothrop hall's is decent as well as bellfield, best of luck to you in school and at the gym while in the burgh!!!
