Random Friday Chit Chat

by agirlandhermutt on November 15, 2013

YAY! Friday! I was listening to the radio yesterday and they were talking about the difference between people who “wind down” vs those that “rev up” for the weekend. That got me thinking about which one I am. If you asked me a few years back I would have answered, without a second thought, REV UP! I loved going out and all that goes with it. While those days aren’t completely behind me, I do love a good Friday night at the gym followed by some Netflix on my couch. I’m officially a “wind down” kind of gal now. What about you?

My original plan was to do a weekly weigh-in, but after my cortisone shot on Tuesday I just wasn’t in the mood for it. I felt all kinds of blah the next day and just didn’t think the scale would be a good mood booster. Steroids=Water retention. Next week. Promise! Instead, lets chat about a few things.

1. I got a new phone. Specifically, I got the iPhone 5s. I’ve had my beloved 4s for a few years now and it was starting to feel like I was thumbing through a magazine to get info it was so slow. It was time for an upgrade so I made the jump.

I’m handling the change well. I’ve only dropped it twice and I managed to get myself locked out of it once. Nice job! I also have to figure out how to organize my apps. I lead a rough life.

2. Korky is the best roommate a girl could ask for.

I wasn’t feeling so hot on Wednesday after my cortisone shot so I worked from home. He was right by my side the entire day. I think he was looking for food, but it was comforting to have him so lovey all day.

Bonus: Check out this little video I took of him waking up. His little nub of a tail starts wagging but he still has his snore breathing happening.

3. I have a new cookbook. From Haylie Duff. Like of 7th Heaven fame. Seriously.

The Real Girl’s Kitchen is just a really lovely little cookbook that started with a food blog. The photos are gorgeous. The recipes are right up my alley. The price is right. All of the recipes in this book aren’t groundbreaking, but they all include ingredients I work with now and wouldn’t require a ton of grocery shopping. Perfect!

4. I’ve discovered that my shoulders are my favorite body part. My MshellFitness program is all about heavy lifting and it is really starting to show! BOOM!

PS. I also have decided to grow man hands. What the hell?!

5. Heh. Triumph went to The Great American Beer Festival. I’ve watched this video about 3 times now. I can’t stop laughing.



Have a great weekend folks! I’ll see ya next week!
