Bum Cushioning and the Elliptical

IMG 4947 1

What is that in my hand you might ask......you probably didn't even notice anything was in my hand because you were too busy wondering how long my shoes were untied before I finally tied them or the fact that my neck is 3 different shades of orange (I get lazy with washing my self-tanner off).

I am holding a bike seat.  My cutest friend Misha surprised me at my spin class this morning with a CUSHIONED BIKE SEAT. Every fiber of my being thanks you Misha, you have saved me and my posterity.   It is like sitting on marshmallows.

After spin, I did a few weights and then I went SWIMMING!!!!  One hour of swimming and I was speedier today....Watch your back Michael Phelps, I am right behind ya in the pool but we know I could beat you in an eating contest any day.....13,000 cals a day. Easy.

Half way through my swim they closed off 2 of the 3 lanes for water aerobics.  There were 4 people in the class and they were only using the corner of the pool and yet they closed 2/3 of the pool for it, forcing 3 of us into one lane to swim.  Shut Up and Run.....I feel your pain.

The Physical Therapist is going GREAT, I am seeing him everyday and we are seeing a lot of improvements in my mobility and the pain is going down slowly but surely.  I GET to try out the elliptical on Saturday.....yes, that sounds lame but to me that is a HUGE deal.  It is one step closer to RUNNING.

For your viewing pleasure......a sweaty gross picture of me on the elliptical from a few months ago.

IMG 0639

I was thinking about how excited I am to use the elliptical on Saturday when before the whole injury thingee I DREADED it.  From now on I will not complain about the elliptical and be thankful for beastly machine.

In case you were wondering why I haven't commented on your blog in the last little bit it is because 94% of my day is either spent cross-training or in the PT office. Rest assured, I am still your number one stalker via my iphone.......as I am biking, I stalk......as I am getting electrotherapy, I stalk.  I still know everything that is going on in your life but I just can't comment when using my phone.  Believe me, I can't LIVE without your blogs......that would be like going a day without calling your bff.......impossible.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Random questions of the day:

Do you do your make-up first or do you do your hair first when you are getting ready or do you switch off.

-I put on my make-up before I do my hair because I would rather run out of time on that then only have eyeliner on one eye because I had to run out the door, plus lets be honest, I wear a ponytail 90% of the time.  When I do happen to wash my hair....I blow dry my hair and put on make-up at the same time, talent people, talent.

Speaking of Michael Phelps.......do you have any athlete crushes?

-My sister has a crush on John Stockton....weird.  I would have to chose Billy Jacobs, the future 10k champion.

Do you dread the elliptical?

-Used to but now I can't wait!!

What are/did you have for dinner.....I can't figure out what to make, help me out!!

My one claim to fame is that I went to high school with Michael Phelps' sister. Ha! I always do my hair first, somehow! And I haaaate the eliptical. I think I'm too short for it!

Wow, an hour of swimming!! I like to switch up my hair/make up routine :) I hope your leg gets better soon!!!

Had to be #2...I'm never! Hope i still am after this.
Any way, I always put my makeup on first. My hair is pulled back cause i can't stand it in my face while I'm applying.

I hate the eliptical, can't stand the darn thing.
No crushes for me... :(
Feel your pain on the bike seat...my ahem..always hurts so bad!

Here's what I had for dinner: an apple mixed with cottage cheese and yogurt, toast with pb & banana, and a bowl of cereal. My roommates just stared as I wolfed all that down but I started this morning with TWO yoga classes, Insanity, & a 3 mile walk...my metabolism is a callin'!

What do you use to read blogs on your phone?? I have the Reader app but wonder if there is something else.

I dry my hair, put my make up on, then straight my hair. If I wear it wavy then I put stuff in it, dry it a little, put on make up, then dry it a little more. It usually ends up in a ponytail half way through the day anyway!

I ate chicken nachos because I had left over chicken, cheese, and salsa from tacos last night!

What a nice gift! A cushioned spin seat sounds awesome.
I'm not a big elliptical fan, but the arctrainer is awesome as long as I have some entertainment - music, TV, phone, all of them.
I've had the biggest crush on David Beckham for years now!

We had breakfast burritos for dinner. And they rocked!

I dread the elliptical. I think the feet are too wide for my hips. It makes my knees hurt!

I HATE HATE HATE swimming with the water aerobics people. They make a bunch of waves, and what they do is barely exercise. Swimmers refer to them as "water buffalo" because we are bad people. I hope you are having fun with swimming! It's so cool.
P.S. Ryan Lochte is hotter than Phelps. Look him up.

We had breakfast for dinner. The eggs were piling up! I'm so glad that you got a comfy seat to spend your time on. And good for you and the pool. I wish I could get myself to like it. It would be so good for me! I do my make up while the flat iron is heating up. I'm glad you're getting better!

haha I was actually thinking about the whole makeup/hair thing TODAY in my gym lockerroom, wondering what the most efficient process was. if it's summer, blowdrying hair is not necessary so I go right to makeup. if it's cold out, I will blow dry a little, do makeup + let hair air dry a bit, then finish blowdrying. (Why do I think so much about these things?)

Hair first, bc I am easily sweaty, and i don't want to ruin my make up.

ROBINSON CANO. WHAT A CUTIE!!!!

I do not particularly like the elliptical, but i'm trying to pretend that I do

TOnight i had roasted veg (yellow squash, zucchini, red pepper and mushroom) and Turkey Meatballs with frozen spinach and feta mixed in, SUPER YUM.

SO glad things are looking up for you :)

I loathe cardio machines, but I bet I would change my mind if that was the only exercise I was allowed to do.

I do hair first because I rarely have time for both and I don't feel like I need make-up even though I enjoy wearing it.

It depends on how much time I have - hair first if I have longer, makeup first if not...I rarely blow-dry my hair anymore! We are about to eat - Billy is in there cooking sweet potatoes. I'm about to make black beans and broccoli - my kind of meal. :)

SOOO glad to hear your pain is decreasing and you get to try the elliptical on Sat!! I dread it for the most part, but like it when I want to pass the time and watch TV.

I use to only do the elliptical. Then I started running. And I went back to it the other day... much easier than running. I noticed this and thought it was weird... I was on the elliptical and I did 2 miles in 30 minutes and burned 350 calories, according to the machine. I think it was broken.

I don't dread the elliptical, sometimes it's a nice break from the treadmill. I'm gonna elliptical it up tomorrow in prep for my half on Saturday.

-I'm with you on make-up first, worse case scenerio the hair can go up. (just like you, thats how I wear it 90% of the time)

I don't really have an athlete crush, maybe I should fine one?

Yes I sort of do dread the elliptical, but I don't go to the gym lately so I don't really have the chance to use one either.

Dinner tonight was a boring ole spinach/romaine salad with avocado and chicken and Newman's Own Light Sesame Ginger Dressing (the best ever) Boring yes, but still delicious!

Funny how injury changes your perspective on things like the elliptical ;-) I am so glad things are moving in the healing direction for you!

Hair…make up… :D. You're too funny! I tie up that ponytail and glide on that cherry chapstick in no particular order.

I was going to have pie for dinner again…but it's all gone :P

I sooo hear you on the crazy closing lane rules during water aerobics classes. I've been shuffled into a single lane with 3 other really strong swimmers before, so a few ladies could bust out their moves aka. "workout" in a huge pool. Am I being cruel? Perhaps. But not a fan.

Can't do the elliptical, hurts the hip. I know what you mean about being grateful for those things you can do, even if you hate them before. Swimming is like that for me, which is what I'm so impressed you're in the pool for an hour. Next is water running, right??? You know I am the expert. I will come up there and show you the ropes.

 
At March 24, 2011 at 7:34 PM , Blogger Diet Coke and a Lemon said...

For some odd reason I have never been able to do the elliptical. I have tried and tried but it always hurts my butt and legs. Id rather run twenty minutes on the treadmill then do a minute on the elliptical. Maybe one day I will figure it out.

I definitely do my hair before my makeup. Right now my hair is too short for a ponytail....well one without a million bobby pins at least, so I have to style my hair if I wash it. And if I just blow dry it and not style it, well it's just a huge fro throughout the day. Pretty sure no one wants to walk around with cousin itt.

Oh, and swimming sounds lovely right now. I don't have a gym membership right now so I have to wait until summer to bum friends pools.

I ALWAYS do make-up (the little bit of it that I do) before hair. My hair is short so I have to leave it wet to keep it off my face.

I don't have any specific athlete crushes, but I think soccer players are my type.

I don't dread the eliptical but I always feel like it hinders my stride. Like I can't move my legs as fully as when I run, and that usually feels pretty annoying.

Dinner tonight was Shrimp Pad Thai. It was the first time I'd tried to make it. My and the hubby liked it...the kiddos, not so much. Your salads always look so good!

I HATE the elliptical. It makes my knees feel weird and it bores me to tears. My biggest athlete crush is probably Peyton Manning. I'm actually a huge Giants fan, but I just love the Mannings in general so Peyton (and the Colts) are my number two. He's adorable and makes hilarious commercials and I love him.

For dinner I had a Mexican vegetarian salad the size of my head that I brought home so I could add a mountain of roasted broccoli to it. I had an AWFUL run today - one of those ones where your body just totally shuts down on you and you have no choice but to stop. Needless to say, I was ready for a Mexican salad the size of my head. But now I'm making a couple of lasagnas to freeze and bring to my sister in law's because she just had a baby, and the smell of them cooking is KILLING me!!

Makeup first, because I don't want my hair in the way. Have you ever had your hair get stuck to a freshly mascara-ed eyelash? No bueno.

Madison Bumgarner (SF Giants) is my lover-man. Someday he will see me at a game and he'll run up into the stands and sweep me off my feet because it's love at first sight. My shrink says I need to work on separating fantasy from reality..pssshh, riiiiight.

I actually love the elliptical for cardio, mostly because I hate running (but I love your blog since it allows me to live vicariously) and my gym doesn't have a pool. Plus I can prop up a trashy celebrity gossip magazine and look at pictures of skinny famous people while I work out. It's simultaneously entertaining/motivating/depressing.

Dinner was green bean fries using Jessica's recipe from How Sweet It Is, a strawberries & spinach salad (no dressing, but it worked), and a can of tuna with ketchup. Girl needs her veggies and protein.

I do my makeup first too...my hair dries a tiny bit while doing makeup so it takes less time to dry it. Plus I only wash my hair every few days anyways!

My athlete crush...David Beckham of course!

I'm not much of an elliptical fan.

I am so glad that you are able to stay active and get back to the gym. I hate when I cant workout, but I grin and bare it.
My morning routine is the SAME every morning. I wake up, make my bed, run to the shower (yes, run), hop in the shower and wash as fast as possible, then get out and get dressed(laid clothes out the night before), blow dry my hair and run the straightner through it once it is dry, finally I put on make up and then I am ready to eat breakfast! I get ready as fast as I can so I can enjoy breakfast and read blogs! :)

Roasted broccoli for din! And when I actually do my hair, I do it first. But most weekdays I also just throw it in a ponytail and make sure my makeup is done.

 
At March 24, 2011 at 10:43 PM , Blogger Shannon said...

If I'm blow drying and straightening my hair I'll do my hair first, otherwise my face will get all sweaty (mainly in summer) and nasty and my make-up will slide off. otherwise I generally do my make-up first, then throw my hair in some crappy messy bun. If I'm just headed into town I'll just rake a comb through my hair, throw on some make-up and I'm out the door. I don't have anyone to impress in Wal-Mart.

I'm sure you've already eaten dinner and are now in bed, but my dinner was a fried chicken thigh (skin removed...), about 1/4 cup mashed taters and about 1/3 cup corn (I ate someone's leftovers...), then I had a little bit of ice cream, then came home and had some oatmeal because I've been craving it like a pregnant lady craves pickles and ice cream (at least, I hear they crave it a lot...)

The elliptical, yes, I dread it, but I am also SO thankful for it!

I dry my hair first. I think I got into this habit because in the summer, it feels like my makeup melts off if I do my makeup before I dry my hair. :-P

I don't dread the eliptical anymore! I used to because I felt like I couldn't get the hang of it. It wasn't until someone told me to pretend like I was running that I started looking like I knew how to work the machine haha. Sometimes it makes my feet numb (idk why) so that's not fun.

I actually WAS wondering why your shoes were untied :).

I hate the elliptical, but it's mostly because I don't feel like I'm doing anything and my feet always fall asleep (I must be doing something wrong, right?).

My hair doesn't take a lot of doing (I get out of the shower and towel dry), but if I'm straightening it, I to that first then my makeup.

I can't decide on dinner yet, I just ate breakfast! But I had pb stirfry last night.

Sooooooo we had Chipotle burrito bol's last night. Long trainer ride right after work left no cooking time :(

Glad you have progress on the injuries :) I just came from that boat and it sucked. Not looking back!

My hair is short, I shake my head after I shower and call it good. No makeup either ;)

I put my make up on and then do my hair.
Athletic crush would definitely have to be one or all of these college basketball players...super hot!
I don't do the elliptical very much, so I guess I don't dread it.
I had salmon and mac-n-cheese for dinner last night, yum!

That's great that you got the cushioned bike seat!! That should really help.

When I actually wear makeup I put it on before doing my hair... not really sure why though.

Celeb sport crush... David Beckham. HELLO!
