Awkward & Awesome

-- I ate Flaming Hot Cheetos for dinner last week not once but twice.  Then I bought more Flaming Hot Cheetos for tailgating on Sunday.  Three days of Flaming Hots in one week.  Nom nom nom.
-- Recently, whenever Molly would drink water, she'd get a little bit in her nose then make the cutest little guinea pig sneeze-coughs.  I thought she was just being overzealous in her hydration but, turns out, her water bottle was broken.  Instead of just a few drops at a time coming out, a full-on stream of water would ooze out every time she tried to take a drink.  The cute little sneeze-coughs were actually the sound of her nearly drowning as she tried to drink water!  Of course I immediately replaced the bottle when I realized what was going on, but it took me a few days to figure it out.

-- The Boyfriend and I have already planned our meals for the weekend.  Mushroom risotto on Friday and brown sugar glazed salmon on Saturday.  Now I just have to figure out the side dishes...  I love planning food!!
-- I had to attend a mediation in the East Bay yesterday so I went up Tuesday night and stayed with The Boyfriend.  We never get to see each other during the week so this was a nice special treat. :)
-- I'm on Day 7 of the Metamorphosis workouts.  So far, it's going okay.  I'm not following the meal plan because I actually like to eat more than just juice and vegetable puree for a meal so I haven't actually noticed any weight loss yet.  The workouts are challenging but definitely doable.  Still a little awkward though because I am not at all coordinated so it takes me a while to catch on to a new move.  At Day 10, I'm supposed to re-measure everything (yikes!) and move up to Level 2 so I'll give you a full review at that point!

This is what I see whenever I open my workout DVDs.  Talk about motivation.


  1. Ooh how cool that you're doing that workout! Two years ago I was training for a marathon(ie running a ton) and I tried to do P90X plus the P90X diet at the same time...needless to say...the diet had to go because I nearly died of starvation and almost passed out during a run. I'm so super jealous of your workout but want to hear all about it :)

  2. The workout seems great, I am starting to go to the gym again in a few days :) I just stopped during Summer! Love your blog, following you with Google Friend Connect, feel free to follow back if you like my blog too of course! Kisses
