so long first year [Apr. 12th, 2008|04:32 pm]


6 months? [Mar. 29th, 2008|10:39 am]
For those of you not in the dieting support community, I've posted about starting a fairly intense 6-month fitness regime, with workouts 6x a week. Since trying to lose weight is important to me but I seem to get defeated when my eating habits aren't as stellar as I'd like, working out more will clearly get me headed in the right direction.

So I've now completed 2 days of the program, with today being day three and I'm feeling good about it. I'm going to have to sacrifice some fruitless entertainment time to fit in an hour or so of gym time almost everyday, which surprisingly doesn't bother me that much. The results that I know I'll see if I keep this up will definitely be enough of a motivator to stick with it.

Yesterdays workout was cut short a little bit, only doing 20 minutes of cardio instead of the suggested 35-45 so today I'll be reving it up on the treadmill.

Oh and I got my hair cut! It's very posh-if-she-were-brunette circa 6 months ago. The compliments I've received are oh so nice :)

commitment [Mar. 18th, 2008|12:37 am]
Having a lot of different things going on at once makes me feel slightly bonkers.
Unfortunately it's going to get worse before it gets better, with exams coming up and such.

Anyways I'm re-committing to my plan. I had managed to lose about 6 or so lbs, and then last weekend was definitely not close to how I'd like to be eating.

Tuesday sparks a new beginning which will hopefully give me some momentum into summertime.
I feel as though it will, so that's great. Summer time = super fine.

haha oh dear I'm hilarious.
Next step will be religiously working out, I want to get back into that.

I'm not sure if I'm able to say I've fallen off the bandwagon since that implies some sort of addiction, and I don't consider my terrible habits an addiction necessarily, but I've deffinitly stopped most efforts of bettering my lifestyle.

ugh, good job laine.

Really, I want to do this*. I don't know why I sabotage myself and ease back into my old ways but it always seems to happen.

I'm going to be persistant though, I know this already. I just need to set a date for beginning again.

Through all the icky stuff I stick in my body I have been working out regularly which is good, and I've noticed has greatly improved my mood and energy levels, but that's no excuse to eat crap. I've brought this up before.

well tonight is not the night to start. It's the first night of my reading break! No class for a whoole week. I think after this week I'll start being serious again, since my dads birthday is on the 20th and I want to enjoy this break as much as possible (not saying that I need food to enjoy myself, just that I don't want to worry about anything this coming week)

day 14 [Jan. 29th, 2008|09:32 pm]
make it work work make it work.

I'm feeling like an athlete again, even though I'm not specifically training for anything.
Today, 5 min hard on erg, 30 min stairmaster. Stairmaster was 300 C and erg would be around 60, so that's 360 C burned.
The stairmaster KILLED me! I am not used to using that machine, so it's great that I'm utilizing different muscle groups.

I still could be better on my eating, but even though it's not all healthy my calories for the day were ~1300. I figure since I'm now working out 6 days/week I should be eating more calories, but again, they need to be healthier.

ok gotta shower and do math homework.
Oh, and show you this:


edit:WOW I'M SORE ALREADY. oh boy it's been only 2 hours and my muscles are already stiff

day... 12. holy shit [Jan. 27th, 2008|09:37 pm]

A really neat article about a book on natural architecture (click photo). That book is for sure going on my wish list.

And now for something completely different:
A really long possibly obnoxious rant about my bad habitsCollapse )

My birthday [Jan. 15th, 2008|11:10 pm]

IIkka Halso: Museum of Nature

I saw this and was thouroughly impressed. The artist "portrays a futuristic world where nature, no longer capable of serving its natural purpose, functions as nothing more than an amusement attraction."

werd man. Other than the social implications that are really pertinent to society, these images are gorgeous. I especially like the lighting.

oh ps- did you know that "engineering is the new design?" (see the blood pen post)

fucking yea it is! hella made the right choice in the end.

errr [Jan. 13th, 2008|07:31 pm]

oh right... forgot this existed. Maybe if this blog/journal/whatever had an actual purpose I'd be a little more active in maintaining it.

The reason I was reminded of its presence was because this account sent a birthday reminder to my inbox. Only 2 more days until I'm 19 years old. WHAT IS THAT ABOUT! I'm actually going to grow old one day, is mostly what that brings to mind. Yep I'll be 50 sometime (if everything goes according to plan) 

but anyways that isn't what I wanted to talk about.
For the longest time I've had the idea of creating my own brand identity, but never actually moved forward on it. I've painted some of my shoes and people seem to like that stuff, and really I want to take it a step forward and start selling stuff. I actually promised myself that this summer I'm saying "fuck you" to the service industry and never working in a service type job ever again. Yea lick my hairy cornhole disgrunteled customers and bosses with half the brain capacity as me. My fucking last boss was YOUNGER THAN ME! And I'm 18. Just because you're born into the family owning the company doesn't mean you've got the skills to run it. Needless to say I had issues with having to report to a 16 year old. 

SO what does that entail? Well I need to work... and I need to start thinking of ideas of shit to sell otherwise I'll be going back on my promise. My summer starts in about 3 months, and with a full schedule of classes along with trying to organize my brand I should not have much extra time for my boyfriend or others, which, admitedly, doesn't bother me that much. (k... sick, my farts smell like brocolli. Yes you needed to know that)

With a year of engineering under my belt by that time (fuckin rights) I might be able to get a job related to that and make hella scrill, but I don't really wanna do that quite yet. I know whatever I'd be doing wouldn't be all that enthralling, soo I need to get my act together and design a dope website I guess!

so for anyone that reads this (yea right) I'll try to not forget about this and maybe thrown in some updates on how my entrapaneurship (sp? is that even a word? w/e) is going

[Music |Sia - Breathe Me]

I'm dousing myself in schoolwork. It's a little more than frustrating, as my actual interest in a lot of the material we're covering is marginal. Engineering? I really just want to design cool shit. 
Yea I realize engineering is a huge part of design, but on a more technical level. I like the median: architecture. 


Maybe I'll use this as an academic journal. And I don't even care how lame this is, because it's who I am. 

I'm a university student with an attraction to the design world and am actively working towards this goal. 

My desired average this year? A- 
Yea seriously. 
No B's, thanks. 

I'm way to smart for that. 

hahahaha of course, right now I'm not studying, sleeping or doing anything productive, and of course I have uncompleted work that really should be finished soon, like right now . 

ya I should go to sleep.
