I’ve been up since 4am. Involuntarily.
I thought I’d be able to sleep in a bit since I had a LONG day yesterday. Here’s what my Sunday looked like:
- 6 am wakeup when dog started fidgeting and crying. Butt problems again, you know how it is. And obviously it would be a Sunday because that’s the one day my vet is closed so of course I had to go to the ER clinic and spend even more money on a routine procedure.
I’m sick of spending money on a routine anal expression, so I had the vet teach me how to do it. Luckily, my dog is totally comfortable with fingers up her butt because I REALLY practiced.
- Baked these brownies. I honestly had a little too much fun making them. And that’s probably why the scale registered a slightly higher number this morning.
- Put Christmas away. 😦
- Ran 32 minutes of intervals at the gym (didn’t want to do strength because TODAY is the first day of Best Body Bootcamp! And now that it’s Monday, I can tell you that I already did the day 1 workout. They consisted of pretty easy moves, except they were slow and controlled rep counts. I’ll let you know how THAT feels tomorrow). Oh, and the dog joined in on every move.
- Made chicken salad sandwiches for dinner. Best part: it was on a Whole Wheat Farmers Loaf from Cobs Bread. Yummo.
- And then I did a ton of other boring little things that don’t deserve a bullet point. The end.
Did you see my post from yesterday though about the special Pv.Body 30 Day challenge? You should check it out. *I* can save *you* 20% on awesome fitness gear. *You* with then thank *me*. Plus, if you sign up, you can join the challenge and win some sweet prizes.
Did you watch the premiere of Buck Wild last week? Because I did. What did I take away from that show? A ‘Holler’ is a place where you can holler to any and all of your neighbors and they’ll hear you. (a little red-necky if you ask me) Also, this song- LOVE IT.
I have also taken to this song as of late:
I always try to sound like her when I sing it. In my head, I’m spot on. In other people’s heads, I sound like a chicken.
Did you know that my wedding in is 6 months from yesterday? Also, my birthday is in 6 months from today. TO RECAP: The first week in July will be EPIC. My favorite holiday (4th of July, my wedding, AND my birthday within four days. Excitement cannot be contained.)
Did you also know that I’m going back to the States this Sunday?
So far, my dance card is pretty empty, so get your requests in if you want to be graced by my presence (assuming I somewhat know you and you are in the Upstate NY area. I’m talking to you, silent high school classmate readers. Actually no, not you. But you will find my mother and I sitting at the bar at the 99 in the mall at some point in the next two weeks. Or me at the Y. One of the two.)
If you just did some math from the above paragraph, you will have concluded that today is my half birthday. Woo hoo 26.5!
I have decided to drive out to Banff on Wednesday. I will be on the lookout for bears, wolves, and moose. I might also buy some fudge, Lululemon, and a Canada sweatshirt while I’m there. (Haha, I totally just typo-ed it to read sweatshit)
Looking for a new deal site to add to your daily email? Honest to God, Rue LaLa is like my favorite site for deals- they have EVERYTHING. Sorry, Canada, they don’t deliver to you, so I suggest to chum up to an American friend or you set up a PO Box in your closest American town. Check that site out, yo.
Or you can check out Zulily. They ship to Canada. Pretty sweet.
Tell me something you did yesterday. Or Today. Or will do this week.
Lots of marvelous! and I gotta say the slow reps will creep up on ya. 😉
PS – Those brownies are drool worthy.
Any chance of a Boston visit when you are Stateside?
not sure yet!!!
Tonight I will be planting my behind on the couch to watch the continuation of the Biggest Loser in my jammies and eating whatever is in my cabinet (probably a sweet potato and some eggs). Hope you have a great week!
Sounds like a good night! Ill be doing the same- with crock pot sweet n sour chicken!
Yeah Banff! I haven’t been out there since well before the holidays.. maybe some time this weekend I’ll try to go. Have fun. Today I went back to school (all holidays have to end I guess) also is that peanut butter on those brownies?
It’s pb to taste like Reese’s. (pb, butter and powdered sugar) so delicious.
Nice work on learning the butt trick. Good mama you are. OMG those brownies. Yum. Your weekends always sounds like a lot of fun! Wedding is creeping up – I’m excited!!
Those brownies are outrageous! I hide them behind the coffee pot so I don’t eat too much! I get to try on my dress next weeeeeeeeek!!
Happy 1/2 Birthday! 🙂 my birthday is tomorrow. Enjoy your time back in the states!
Happy birthday to you!!!!!!!! 🙂 birthdays are the best!
Thank you! I agree, they are the best! 🙂
I’m so glad you posted that pic of Layla because I was just trying to explain to Athena this morning how lily is all up in my grill when I work out at home! I’m so excited to see you in New York!
Yay I can’t wait!!
That was a really unfortunate juxtaposition between the details of your dog’s bowel troubles, and the way the window on my computer only displayed part of the brownie photo, at first. When I scrolled down a little, it was all good. But I was worried for a second there.
Ahaha I didn’t realize it until my mom called to point it out!
Holy mother of awesomeness, your July is going to absolutely rock!!! Wedding? Birthday? AND 4th of July?! Can’t. Handle. All. The. Fun.
It’s pretty freaking badass.
