Hi there! I'm Paula and I live in Orlando. I like to run and watch too much TV. I'm a lover of cupcakes and hater of chia seeds, even though I've never tried them. I eat peanut butter out of the jar and think Aaron Paul is my boyfriend.

Let’s talk about the weather in Texas. I’ve had a few days to size up Killeen and I’ve noticed that the weather only sucks from about 11am – 5pm. You’d think I’ve never been in extreme heat before because every time I step outside during those hours, I say something really obvious and d-baggy.
I can’t help it. The words just come out and I can’t stop them. The rest of the time, the weather is actually bearable. There’s a pretty good breeze everyday, which would actually be helpful if the breeze didn’t feel like a hair dryer in your face. But it’s better than no breeze. And yesterday it rained and probably cooled off by 20 degrees for 2 glorious hours.
Since I made this great weather discovery, I decided to go running outside on Tuesday which means this girl is going to have to share her title for a few weeks. I started around 8pm (outside the core hours of suck) and the sun was mostly down. I wanted to find a neighborhood to run in but the front desk girl literally said, “I wouldn’t do that.” And then I was all…
So, I was limited to the extremely picturesque .42 mile circle around my hotel, the Holiday Inn next door, and the sewer ditch they share. I made it 2 miles. TWO miles. Then I thought I was going to die and decided the treadmill at the hotel gym wasn’t so bad after all. So I went inside and finished 2 more miles in my security blanket, also know as the air conditioning.
Yesterday, I stayed in my hotel room and did the “Federal Prison Workout” which basically consists of a ton of walk-outs and makes your whole body hurt. Then I was looking through some of the old workouts I’ve posted and decided to pick one for tomorrow’s Hotel Room Workout. I’ll be doing this one after running a couple miles.
I don’t have a jump rope with me, so I’ll just fake it or do jumping jacks instead.
