Bonnie’s Beach 🏖

My Life. My Experiences. My Love. My Words.

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh…My Cocoon.

Being back in the car I forgot just how comfy it was in here. It’s always a bit strange parking at the office since there’s some little “security” car that drives around. Whatev. As long as she doesn’t bug me we won’t have any problems. Just sayin.

I was so comfortable this morning that it was just difficult climbing back up to the front seat to get my flip flops on and grab my bag to get ready upstairs. Then I was alerted to what sounded like an animal being eaten alive maybe twenty feet from my spot. It was horrific!!!! There’s a creek that runs directly behind me, and there are plenty of wild things back there. But dear god! If you’re gonna eat something alive at least go for the throat within the first five minutes!! Geez!!!! I did finally get moving around 6 am, which is when a couple people start showing up around the building. The last thing I need is for people to see me in my zombie-like, morning state climbing out of my vehicle. Ugh! It ain’t purdy!!!

I am a little excited today!!!! I bought a hitch-mount bike rack off Craigslist today for $100!!! It can hold four bikes! It even has a feature where you can extended it out to where I can open the back of my car! Dude even gave me the lock he bought for it so no one can gank my shiznit! Now I just need to buy something to lock the bikes onto the rack. Thing is solid! And heavy! I’ll include a pic at the end. 🙂

Training is going great! We have now entered the phase where he is going to attempt to kill me. He has three chances a week at succeeding, but I keep on truckin! Everything always hurts two days later. So by Thursday my arms are going to jump off my body and run away in order to never be used again for strength training purposes. You think I’m joking. :-/ Thursday is going to be a leg day. I already know that is going to hurt like a mother fucker. Yep. Gonna hurt! But it’s such a good hurt! Unless I have to sit down… I think you know the activity I speak of. It’s happened to most of us.

So food wise, being back in my car, I haven’t really set anything up that’s special. Since I am back to watching my calories I can’t do too much sake drinking before bed, although that might be on the agenda tomorrow night. Mmmmm. Sake… It’s basically oatmeal or something for breakfast. Usually coffee and creamer in there. Trying to get my protein levels up, but even with my protein shake I miss the mark. Can’t really cook, so it needs to be something I can grab on the go that isn’t so over processed it’s just a frankenfood. I keep believing I will cook up stuff on the weekends to eat during the week. Yeah… That seems to be working in some parallel universe, but obviously not in this one. If anyone has any suggestions on how to add more protein to my diet while remaining calorie conscious, please share. I have heard that pea protein is all the rage now. Can anyone support this randomness? Anyway, seriously, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

With that I am off to dreamland. It be late. I be tired. Have a good night and sweet dreams.

I love you angel pie!!!!!! 🙂

Getting Back Into the Grooooooooove…

Sitting at my dad’s for the last night, eating a bowl of organic raisin bran, and getting a load of laundry done before I enjoy the comfort of a bed one last time before cocooning myself in my vehicle again. Since the holidays started through my dog sitting time, I haven’t spent any time in my car. This translates into my car being a wreck (I put part of my backseat up for human transport), and now I need to reorganize. I have crap spread between different bags and suitcases, and I have accumulated more stuff from Christmas and my birthday. I have not made a trek to storage in quite a while, so nothing has been dumped off over there. Saturday I went through and cleaned out the car. Dropped off all my sake at my mom’s. Now I have stuff that needs to go to the office and stuff that needs to go to storage before I can fully enjoy the comforts of my home. 🙂 Basically, tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Woohoo!!!!

Anyway, had a pretty good weekend. Met a woman I love working with for the first time on Friday. She works for the company that my company distributes for, and it was awesome getting to put a face to the voice. Nothing at all what I imagined her to look like! Crazy how the mind does that. You get this idea of what someone would look like based on their voice, and they never ever ever look like what you think! Ever!!! Just crazy!!!!

Hung out at my mom’s for the weekend. Always love hanging out at mom’s, but I swear that place is like a vortex of laziness. I mean, it’s like a place to get away, and you just don’t feel like doing shit. It’s nice! It’s relaxing! I can be myself and not care about the world. At least until my mom and I start discussing politics and randomness. Then a fire is lit, but we’re usually thinking along the same lines. Usually. Love you mom. My sister dropped by yesterday and today. Always good to see her! It’s weird being over at mom’s and she’s not living there anymore. I always love it when all of us girls are together!

So Texas weather is crazy! It was cold and rainy most of last week, and now it is warming up again. It’s supposed to be in the mid-seventies through Thursday!!!! I think I might be mixing up some outdoor time with my gym time this week. Maybe get some vitamin D production going. Today was the beginning of the warm up. It was windy as all hell, but the sun was out and shining, and the sky was a beautiful blue! I decided to pull out the ol’ bow and get some target practice in. Damn wind! Damn wind!!!!!!!! I didn’t do too terribly bad, but boy that wind made it a challenge. Hell! It’s been so long since I last practiced I’m surprised I hit the damn target at all!! It felt good though! It was nice shooting something! I just picture someone’s face in place of the target bag and voila! Instant stress release! Just kidding! I wasn’t picturing anyone’s face, but now that I have thought about it I wish I had.

Alright, I am going to finish up laundry and do some dishes and go to bed! Oh yeah! Must enter my calories for the day! I have been really really bad this weekend! But it was oh so worth every fattening, calorie-dense morsel!!!! Eh! I’ll work it off this week I am sure! I won’t have much else to do but go to the gym. On that note, good night and sweet dreams!

It burns!!!!!!

Still not in my car. Totally lounging at my dad’s this week, because I keep putting off reorganizing my “home.” I am being lazy. Yep! L-A-Z-Y! That spells not-getting-up-off-my-ass-to-do-what-I-need-to-do!!! 🙂

Besides that all is great! Work has been crazy busy, and I almost had a mental breakdown last week. From the craziness of a project to people hammering for crap to an ex idiot trying to say I have publicly slandered him and has sent a letter to the Texas Supreme Court and reports me to Facebook!!! Oh noooooooo!!!!! What will Facebook do?!?!?! Obviously they don’t give a rat’s ass, because they haven’t done shit. Oh nooooooooo!!!! The Texas Supreme Court!!!!! I really don’t think they give a rat’s ass either! Idiot! Dear god where do I find these losers?! Why do they find me? Why do they exist? All I wanted was to start this new year off great! And then BAM!!!! DRAMA!!! In my G D face!!!!! Whatever. It was last week. He’s an idiot. My life is great, and one loser isn’t going to ruin it, dammit!

So, I have started training. Started two weeks ago. Definitely feel a difference already. My trainer is pretty awesome, and very cute, which my daughter busted out with (and now denies). Yes. He is. But he is also a great trainer! I am so glad my old trainer recommended him! Different style than I’m used to, but that’s a good thing! Hitting the gym again is great!!! Although I let myself go for far too long, and I hate that I have gotten so weak and fat and just ick! Moving on…

So there’s really not too much going on over here. My mini-me has her first competition of the year this Saturday, so that’s pretty awesome!!!! She is doing great in school, and makes me so proud! I love my angel pie!

With that I am going to sign off. I don’t have much to really update you all on, and I’m sorry, but I know there were a couple of you commenting on my lack of blogging. I hope I have satisfied that hunger for Bonnie-isms. Have a great night!!!!! Sweet dreams!!!

Randomness…

I don’t really have anything particular to say this evening. Not really sure why I am even writing tonight. There’s no car update. The weather is shitty. I am tired. Hmmm…

So training has been going well. Still getting to know my trainer, and so far so good, although I did slack off a bit today. I was supposed to have a cardio day today. I mean technically I did. Dancing after midnight is still technically doing some cardio today, right? Totally makes sense in my head! So I did something at least. :). Then I went way over my calories today. They say lack of sleep can help cause you to eat more. And boy is it true when it comes to me. Food switch is turned off when I am tired. I will make up for that tomorrow.

Got to hang out at my mom’s today on the way back up from Austin. That was nice! I love my mom! She’s a little crazy, and I definitely know where I get mine from! Although I think I am a bit crazier. It’s always great spending time with her though. Had some hot chocolate with marshmallows, watched a little bit of Salt, and talked about cats and building her house and yeah, pretty much all the randomness we usually discuss.

Anyway, so that is all I am going to bust out with for now. Feel free to leave me a comment letting me know how boring this post was. That way I can keep writing about nothing just to bug you more. 😉

So on that note, good night and sweet dreams! Ciao for now!

Just a Quickie

Well, I just wanted to write a quick note to let everyone I am still alive!!!! I know I know. I continue to slack on this whole blog thing. Yeah yeah. I’ll start writing more. It does strike me odd that any of you are actually interested in what I have to say, but just so you know, it also gives me the warm and fuzzies. 🙂 I like it!

So I started house/dog sitting and training this week. Poor dog. She is going to be so happy when her mama comes home! She is lonely, and I am not one to cuddle up with her, so I know she misses her mommy. Her name is Ginger. She’s a really good dog! Ugly (you know this, Min), but very well trained! Great dog! I also find the fact that she doesn’t like kids to be quite humorous. Yes. I think it’s funny.

So training is going to be fun! I really do enjoy it! I know it’s going to be hard and progressives get harder, but it’s still fun. So major props to my new trainer who makes torturing myself fun!!! I need this, and I know what the rewards are. I’m super excited.

Anyway, that’s all for tonight. I am super tired. Have a good night everyone. Ciao!

It’s Not New, It’s A Continuation…

So yeah. Happy New Year! All those resolutions should be in full swing by now. Right? I didn’t make any this year. I made goals, but not resolutions. What’s the point? I mean, it’s easier for me to give up something for Lent, and I’m not even religious! But to resolve to do something? That’s just too much pressure! Seriously! Thirty days? No problem! Undetermined amount of time to do something drastically different in order to appease the New Year gods? Nah! I have better shit to do! Trust me. I had been a victim of that for far too long! Time to reclaim my year for me!

Anyway. Had to get that off my chest. And yes. I feel much better now. 🙂 Did everyone have a fun time ringing in the New Year? I find it harder and harder to stay up until midnight. Maybe I’m just getting old? Maybe when you’re used to being in bed no later than ten to wake up by five it just doesn’t seem possible to stay up later? I do keep finding out that my body doesn’t like it when I drink. I mean, a couple bottles of sake, that’s fine. Four or six beers? No problem! Any more than that? Nope! No way! Body says to me the next day, “So, you think that was worth it? Do ya? Punk?” Yeah… Headache all the next day. All day! I felt perfectly fine except for that damn throbbing in my skull that wouldn’t go away. Ridiculous!!!!! I know better! Oh well.

So I do start getting to work on my major goal next week! I’m excited!!!! Actually I am dreading it a bit, but I know what the outcome will be when I apply myself. I will run and complete every obstacle in that Savage Race! 7 miles! ALL obstacles! I will do it!!!!! Oh god this is going to hurt! I know what lies ahead of me, and oh dear god! The pain! But oh the satisfaction!!!!!

On that note, let me know what your goals or resolutions are for this fabulous, new year! I have a feeling this is going to be one hell of an awesome year, especially after the crappy one we just survived. I know a lot of people who had a rough one, and some of that is being carried over into this one, but I have a feeling it will get better. It has to get better at some point, right? Anyway, let me know. Tell me your thoughts. Your dreams. Your fears. Your wishes. Share them so that we can all look forward to creating a year we’re excited about! Woohoo!!!!!!!!! 2015!

Now, where the F is my hover board?????
