Dear Blogger,

It's not you, it's me.

We're better off as friends.

I'm not ready for a relationship with you right now.

I love you, but I'm not in love with you.

You want more than I can give.

I need space.

Maybe someday, we can work things out.

.....ok, ok. Stop looking at me like that. It's true. I'm seeing someone else. Tumblr is infinitely simpler than you. It has a better Andriod app. It's easier for me to customize. It doesn't make me feel like I have to write a page and half of type to post.

We go together, Tumblr and I.

I hope we can still be friends. If you need anything, I can be reached HERE.

Love (in a friends only sort of way),

Gosh Darn It! (Days 2&3/90)

You may or may not already know this, but I have horrid luck with technology... which is a shame, considering my nerd-like tendencies draw me to it like a moth. But give me the shiny new tech I want so badly, and the following will ensue:

1.) I lose the charger the second I'm out of the store.
2.) I go buy a new charger, but in frustration, I drop shiny new tech and scratch the screen/casing.
3.) I buy some kind of case to return the device to appropriate levels of aesthetic pleasantness.
4.) Somehow, I still sense the scratch, and in my despair, slowly start becoming less and less careful with the product I once held like a tiny, injured baby kitten.
5.) Not so shiny new tech makes its way into some sort of aqueous material, due to my newly developed negligence.
6.) Device is ruined.

(Unless I bought the insurance plan, of course. If that is the case, it will likely be in perfect condition till the day I die.)

(At least I'm not this kind of technology challenged, right?)

Anyway, that isn't exactly what happened to that LG Optimus I was so excited about a few days ago. In this case, scenario B played out:

1.) I bought hot new item.
2.) I go show off to the mister.
3.) He has hotter, newer item, that is infinitely better than mine could ever hope to be.
4.) I will never be happy again. (Spoiled much? Maybe.)

Luckily, I was well withing my 30 day return policy this time. So, I exchanged that stinky old Optimus for the Epic! Video chatting, here I come!!!!!!! (Seriously? Hello, future! Nice to meet you!)

Unfortunately, however... I forgot to back up all my photos. So everything I had planned for yesterday and todays blog post? Sitting in the Sprint store, waiting to be wiped out, refurbished, and resold to someone who doesn't mind the lack of a dual camera on their cell phone. (Cavemen.) I even had some of those artsy photos that are all the rage these days... including two absolutely perfect shots of the family Boston Terrier, Professor Baxter. (Sometimes called Sir-Farts-Alot. Seriously. Beware, would-be Boston Terrier owners.)

So, instead, here is a boring ol' photoless rundown of my diet/fitness log.

5/17/2011 (Day 2/90)
Consumed calories: 1158 out of a max 1200!
Carbs: 177g --- (uh-oh...)
Fat: 41g (getting better!)
Protein: 31g (looks like I subbed carbs for protein...oh, my American, carb hogging self.)
Workout completed: Cardio X

5/18/2011 (Day 3/90)
Consumed calories: 1325. (Ouch. That's over by 125. But I'm still in the green, according to MFP, because I worked out enough to earn some back.)
Carbs: 189g (GOSH DANG!!)
Fat: 34g (Least I'm improving SOMEWHERE!)
Protein: 39g (What can I say. I don't like red meat or fish, and I'm sick of chicken.)
Workout completed: P90x Chest, Back and Ab ripper.

So, honestly? I'm a little bit disappointed in myself, even though MyFitnessPal says if I continue the way I have been, I'll lose weight. I guess we'll just have to see, eh?

Day 1/90

Consumed calories: 1190 out of a max 1200!
Carbs: 129g
Fat: 53g
Protein: 73g
Workout completed: P90x Core Synergistic

Well. Not too bad today. I was pretty heavy in protein, but a high protein diet is recommended by P90x. The extra grams of fat, though... not so much. But we'll get there. (I will get over my fro-yo addiction, I will I will!)

As you can see from the pictures, my meal schedule was a little wonky today. I overslept. Big time. Woke up just in time for baked chicken and rice pilaf for breakfast lunch... then had 3 scrambled eggs, broccoli, cucumber, and French dressing for dinner... then I undid all the veggies with frozen yogurt, granola and fruit as a snack. (Bad Kelly! At least it was fat free... but oh, that sugar!)

I was pretty good with the workout tonight. I won't lie, P90x always kicks my butt; but tonight I just kicked and screamed my way through the whole Core Synergistics DVD. I attempted every move at least a couple of times. Eventually, I'll be able to make 'em all pretty, as Tony says. (Confession: I did not do the bonus round. Maybe during phase 2.)

Be back tomorrow!

P.S. I forgot to mention earlier that my plan is to complete P90x lean, then classic, then doubles. Whether or not I climb Mt. Everest afterwards is yet to be decided.
