Just when you think you are starting to get into really good shape, you start doing something else differently and your muscles are like “Whaaat?” The past two days I spent more time in the saddle and doing more than I have done in the past year (being overweight really hinders what you feel comfortable doing on the back of the horse). So, there are certain leg muscles in my inner thigh that are super unhappy. So unfortunately, I was not able to do any big work out today which made me kind of sad because I was hoping to accomplish at least the work out DVD. Oh well. I guess everyone needs a break day! I have just been trying to monitor what I eat today as to control my weight and hopefully I will still have a loss tomorrow! I am really excited to finally be at 21something. Oh, I have also added a new page over there on the right! I really couldn’t believe the change! Especially in my face.
Anyway, with being sore today and only being able to do some crunches, it gave me some time to read! I haven’t really read much since College because when you are forced to read novel after novel, you end up forgetting what it is like to read for pleasure. The fiance and I saw The Hunger Games back in April, and I knew after I saw it, that I really wanted to read the books. So for the past few weeks, I have gotten through the first two books of the Trilogy. Oh my Goodness. Just the concept itself is pretty mind blowing. Could you imagine being chosen as a sacrifice more or less because you have to fight to the death against other children? I mean they are all teenagers! I just could not imagine it… so it is even more mind-blowing someone was able to write this sort of story!
Are there any other Hunger Game fans out there? I think I would die within the first 10 seconds… Maybe as soon as my name was called at the reaping… just keel over my shock!
I have decided I really need to learn some skills that would come in handy… because you just never know! Hunger Games… Zombie Apocalypse… Can’t go baking cupcakes for everyone and hoping to survive. :p And my decorating is no where near as impressive as Peeta so can’t even think about camouflaging…
So if you had to defend your life (and others around you), what would you want your skill to be? What do you think that says about your personality?
I do really like the idea of the bow and arrow. Can be long distance, silent (great for sneaking up or not attracting unwanted attention), and helps build upper arm strength! On the downside, as soon as you are out of arrows, you have to figure out how to make more while knives or swords… you can keep using multiple times, but then you have to get close…
Ugh. Can’t even think about it. But I would like to try shooting a bow and arrow. At least once sometime.
