Photo Overload of Awesomeness

15 Aug


That’s like the only thing I know in Japanese and I have been living here for three months now. Crazy, huh? Time flies.

I feel like I haven’t updated in forever! Oh my gosh. I have been super busy with life and work. My day starts at 4:30 AM and usually, if I’m lucky, ends at 9 PM. Last night, however, I was at work until 9:20. I was so dead tired. Then, my internet has sucked lately.  Well, by internet I mean the internet I steal from whose ever room is closest to mine that has wifi.

Fortunately for you guys, I have one hell of an update. 

Let’s begin with Saturday…

I started my morning off with a 13.22 mile run on the treadmill. I’m just a real trooper probably because I had my new shirt on.

It’s from the show The Office in case you didn’t know.

After my working out, I ate some waffles then chilled on my bed before I got some iced coffee and a little peanut butter muffin off base at some cute cafe.

Their ice coffee was the bomb too. Japanese make the best coffee.

After my little snack, I went crazy again…

Yeah, I got another tattoo. Cost me $200 bucks. I’m so happy. I love it to death.

I know everyone is like, “What is the meaning behind your tattoo?” Honestly, can’t I just get one to get one?

Well, I got a feather.

I actually got a feather because, to me personally, it symbolizes independence. Like, I see a feather just floating as freedom and being free. Wow, Christy. I just repeated myself in two different ways. You’re welcome.

I also found this feather in some art work I was looking at and I just thought it was beautiful.

Please excuse my huge thighs. I hate them too. It’s fine.

In my opinion, I really love tattoos. You hear a lot of people say, “Women shouldn’t get tattoos and women should not be muscular.” Such B.S. I think tattoos are beautiful and look so much better on women with muscles.

Saturday night I hung out with my two best guy friends and just went around town off base. Hit up the beach, a bar or two, got  tacos, made some friends…


Yes, that is a lion on my shirt. My spirit animal is a lion.

And I’m a hippie. ‘Sup?

Sunday was another day for me to run ten miles or so and to chill out. I can’t remember what I did besides go to the grocery store to buy goodies for my foodie pen pal. First legit foodie pen pal and I’m so excited! Legit, my friends.

As for Monday and Tuesday, those days are just a blur. Work is work.  Exercise is good for my soul and keeps me sane.

By the way, that reminds me…


I can buy the shoes I want now. Holla.

Well, I hope the rest of you are having a good week. Tell me about it the comments below.

    Good job with the fried food!!! I do love your tattoo a feather that just let the wind take it as it pleases 🙂 I want another tattoo…so far I have my husbands name ( he has mine too) and my oldest daughters name.

    That is a NICE tattoo – I’m not planning on getting anything like that done (never say never) but I always appreciate a bit of gorgeous body art. Maybe I’m just too needle chicken… And congrats on the fried food challenge! You definitely deserve those shoes 🙂

    I completely agree with you about tattoos. They look freaking GORGEOUS on muscular women especially. Its really artistic to me. Yours are awesome byyy the way.

    And now I want more tats 🙂

    That new tattoo is beautiful, Christy! I also love your meaning behind the feather. You’re definitely what I would call an extremely independent person, so it suits you really well! 🙂
    Congrats on the new shoes!! Er.. I mean, your no-fried food challenge. 😉

    Nice ink 😀 It’s awesome that you get them done like that (she snaps her fingers). But how long do they heal in your case? I’ve been wanting one for years now, but I’m always training (tri girl :D) so I can’t imagine not to swim for at least three weeks …

      They heal pretty fast in my case. You can’t probably swim for awhile, but you could workout like normal.

    oh my gosh love the tattoo! I need the encouragement and balls to get mine! I am so scared.

    • lifttorun August 17, 2012 at 1:25 AM #

      Don’t be scared. I wasn’t scared at all and it barely hurt. Well, of course it hurts, but you get over it. It becomes numb. Painless after awhile.
