By the Numbers

1. After New Orleans but before the great plague hit, I did this little workout.

Hubs and I asked our trainer for “medium” workout and this is what we got. Let’s just say after four days of gluttony, those box jumps killed. I probably could have done two sets had I felt less…New Orleansy. Still, it’s a good workout and you can always use a stepper or stairs if you don’t have a box for the jumps. (Just be careful.)

2. I’m running the Orlando Half Marathon this Saturday. Hey, maybe I’ll actually run the race this time. I figure three weeks of booze, no training, and the flu should put me right on track for a PR.

I’m not 100% better (still congested), so instead of a time goal, my new goal is for Michelle and I to recreate this picture from this same race two years ago.

Got that, Michelle?

3. I just found out I have a two week work trip to Sierra Vista, AZ starting this Sunday. Nothing like less than two weeks notice for a long ass trip. I checked the weather. It’s 35 degrees out there at night. Since I only have one long sleeved shirt, I’m going to have to pull a Chandler to keep warm.

I messaged back and forth with Tara yesterday. She assured me Sierra Vista is a crap hole (might not be her real words) and that she pities the fool who goes there (also might not be her real words). So I guess I’ll just have to bring the fun with me. At least I hear there’s a good, sketchy biker bar near the hotel.

4. I’m not one to tell people what to do. But, I’m going to tell you what to do. Eat this.

I don’t even like Boston Cream Pie but this stuff is good. I’m having a problem keeping it in the house because someone else’s greedy little mitts is getting a hold of it.

5. I found out what my babies would look like should I have them.

I was always worried that my kids would be ugly, but now that I know for sure, I’m gonna have ten of those beautiful creatures.

    I look forward to the recreation of that picture! And, uh, ya, have fun in Sierra Vista – I heard similar things about it. LOL. A whole crew of you going? If, at least, then you will have some fun! And, glad work is…picking up with some work! :) Omy…that is a fun pic…hehe. I totally understand why you would want 10 of those…hehe…swap the other way…I want to see that one! :)

      We don’t get to come home on the weekends either which makes it super crappy.
      Box jumps are scary! I slipped once and skinned my shin. Took 6 weeks to fully heal. Now I’m afraid to do them without my trainer standing right next to the box so I can grab him if I fall.

    You don’t like Boston Creme Pie?! That makes me so sad and makes me want to force you to come to Boston and try it from a bakery here. Unless of course you have then, your loss, more for me. :)

    I don’t think I even know what’s in a Boston Cream Pie. But I like the Yoplait version of it, so I’m sure I’d like Ben & Jerry’s.

    If that picture isn’t a ringing endorsement for procreation, I don’t know what is. Hope you and FF are up for some serious breeding.

    Who knows, maybe this will be your best time ever. You might go into it more relaxed, no real goals, and blow your old PR out of the water. That or your body will hate you from the inside out. Might come down to whichever comes first!
