Friday Friday Friday! If you happened to miss these random thoughts you are in for a TREAT today!
FIRST AND FOREMOST IT’S GAME OF THRONES WEEKEND.
Can’t wait. This is the best time of year.
We are headed to Charlotte this weekend to celebrate our niece’s baptism. Against their better judgement and common sense, Lillian’s rents chose me and Nick to be her godparents so we are excited. Poor Lillian.
Today is also Nick and my’s 10 year dating anniversary. I thought about writing a mushy paragraph here about how much I like that guy, but I’m not big on the feelings and he doesn’t read the blog anyway. BUT here is a throwback picture from the night we drunkenly decided we were officially an item.
Reading: Umm not much happening here. The only books I’ve read in the past 6 weeks are the lightest, trashiest books you can imagine and I’m too embarrassed to claim them here. But I have read a couple good articles lately:
Game of Thrones Cocktails – I want the Stark martini, though I haven’t allowed myself to have gin since 2008.
Why It’s Totally Normal to Feel Like You’re Friends With TV Characters – I feel very validated by this.
Watching: A lot has been happening here. I’ve been watching a lot of TV, also of the light variety. At the height of our stress and flux, when I didn’t have much extra brain power to do anything, I got hooked on this ABC family show called “Baby Daddy”. It’s total brain candy (except apparently for some emotional new mom I know that cried during the first episode…side eye).
I also started rewatching Gilmore Girls because it’s been a long time, and I want it to be fresh when the new eps come out. It’s reminding me how much I asbolutely LOATHE that sad-sack Dean. He is the whiniest whiner who ever whined. No wonder Rory wanted space from him. I cackle with glee every time Rory lies to him or blows him off.
Listening: I downloaded Sturgill Simpson’s countryish remake of Nirvana’s “In Bloom” this morning after seeing it on Running off the Reese’s and have listened to it approximately 37 times. I’m betting I hit 100 before the end of the day.
Eating: Eats have been pretty boring lately. I’m trying to stay healthy with all the traveling, so I attempted to pack my own lunches this week. Of course it had to be something simple that I could make in my hotel room. I picked up a rotisserie chicken and a large bag salad kit from Costco. $10 and it feeds me for a whole week 👍🏻👍🏻
The hotel I’m staying at actually serves free dinner (weird, right? I didn’t know that was a thing but I know of at least two in the area that do it). So dinners have been salad and a baked potato with some more of my rotisserie chicken added on. SO EXCITING.
Travel: Oh yeah, I should probably start figuring out what we are going to do next month on our trip.
Workouts: I worked out more than once this week!
Still not my ideal balance of strength and cardio, and more “rest days” than preferred, but I did better than last week 🙂
Monday: I did strength workout A from Strong Curves
Tuesday: Intervals on the treadmill. I warmed up for 10 mins @ 5.7mph, did 8 rounds of 1 min @ 7.1mph, 1 min @ 5.7mph, then cooled down for 10 mins @ 5.7mph.
Wednesday: Worked late and totally used that as an excuse to do NOTHING.
Thursday: Had a happy hour event, but kept the drinking to a minimum and did some elliptical when I got back. Totally counting that as a win.
Friday: Ehhh driving to Charlotte after work so, probably nothing.
What are your weekend plans? What is a show that you are obsessed with, but embarrassed to admit?
