Um hi…how is it Thursday already? I swear to God time is just whizzing by and I have had approximately zero seconds to just sit and relax. Ok, that’s a lie because I’ve been making some time to try to … Continue reading
-I have been enrolled in this round of Best Body Bootcamp, but I haven’t been as gung-ho on the workouts. I look at them to gain inspiration an maybe refresh my memory on some moves I may have forgotten, but I just haven’t felt I’ve been getting the results I want from them. So, to change it up, I have been referring to one of my favorite books, The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises. I think it’s doing the trick, because my bod has been SORE for the past week. SORE JEN= HAPPY JEN.
Favorite moves as of late:
Single Leg Glute Bridge on Foam Roller
Reverse Lunge with Overhead Press on Gliding Disc (<—-click link to see video demo and written description)
-I took the pups to the park the other day and there was a sign about moose sightings.
I have been here 17 months now and have YET to see a moose.
-Speaking of 17 months, it has also been that long since anyone has come to visit me. I’m not overseas people, get your lazy butts on a plane and come visit. Free ride from the airport and free place to stay. C’mon.
-I had an interview yesterday! Keeping my fingers crossed. Sported the scarf my bestie Katie gave me during my wedding morning shower/mani/pedi party.
-Anyone watch The Amazing Race? Well, the premiere of Amazing Race Canada aired here this week and yep, it’s only in Canada. The whole race. Lame. But since I have nothing better to do, I’ll be watching.
-My photographer only sent a couple of photos to me last night, and most of them were detail shots, but this one made me laugh out loud. Combine lots of prosecco with a corset and you’ve got yourself a couple of laughs.

-I have been on a huge fruit binge lately. This morning, I made this:
What’s your favorite way to eat fruit?

Did you know Tom Selleck is the narrator of the North America series on Discovery? It makes me love the show that.much.more.
Need a workout, but don’t have the time to write one up? Try this one. It’s really good, and you can pretty much do it while you watch North America. Or Spartacus. Or The Bachelorette. Speaking of the Bachelorette, this season is lame-o. I don’t understand how it can continue to run. Actually, I do. The drama that ensues gets plastered in tabloids, which gives more publicity to the network, which allows them to charge more for advertisers, which makes them have season after season after season.
It won’t stop raining which means I have zero opportunity to work on a tan. On the plus side, it gives me zero opportunity to have a bad tan line.
Hey, remember that one post not too long ago where I shared the recipe I have been using for a single serving microwave chocolate chip cookie? Well, yeah…yesterday, I went to make it again and I realized we had no butter. WHAT KIND OF HOUSE HAS NO BUTTER. I AM SPARTA! AHH!!! Um, I already had chocolate chip cookie on the brain, so I was determined to make it. I substituted the butter with a 50/50 mixture of unsweetened applesauce and EVOO. HOLY EFFFF the cookie was AH-MUH-ZING. Speaking of am-muh-zing, I’m loving me this Best of Penny montage from Happy Endings:
She is my sister from another mister. Fo reals.
I am also really loving this wedding vid. I wish we would do something like that…I’ll probably just dance like a crazy all night.
