Laura expressed something I’ve been wondered about Joe—his seems very confused about his sexuality. He talks about girls non-stop but spends more time chatting with guys online than anyone else. It’s hypocritical of me I know but I don’t mind having friends that are gay but I don’t want it under my roof. I have no problems watching movies/shows with gay characters but I can’t stand to see two men/women kissing.
Not only does he have to deal with his dead-beat dad but his mother really was inappropriate in her raising him. When he was struggling with school she encouraged him to drop out & get a full-time job & then began stealing his money. Not requiring him to pay rent but would actually tell my mother that she would find his hiding places & take his money. She is not right. However, I stand by my demand that he not talk sh*t about her in my home. I won’t allow him to talk sh*t about his father either.
Anyway, we do stick to our guns & are presenting a united front with him. I make John do the disciplining because Joe has serious issue with women—he just doesn’t respect them. I am telling myself that we only have a total of 10 weeks left with him & I will not even be with him for 2 of them; he will be going home for spring break for 10 days & I will be on my cruise for 7.
Back to what this blog is really for…
Yesterday I mentioned that I did 105 lb squats for 2 sets of 8. My legs are a little tight but generally speaking not as tight as I would have hoped. Guess I’ll be increasing that weight again. YAY!
I did 45 minutes on the arc trainer followed by inclined crunches & twists—two sets of 12, followed by a good stretch. Ahhhh.
Meals look like this:
1 c yogurt
1 c mixed fruit (strawberries, peaches, melon balls—frozen variety mix)
1 tbs sugar free vanilla syrup
10 cocoa roasted almonds
2.5 oz shrimp
1 c green beans
1 c 2% cottage cheese
1 c frozen mixed berries
2.5 oz chicken breast
1 c green beans
Dinner has yet to be determined but I’m thinking spinach & jalapeño omelets are sounding really yummy.
