Ever Feel Like This?

Oh yes, it’s a Monday.  After a long weekend.  And this Black Dog is dragging doggy dupa today.  So to hold you over until my next brain vomit – no worries, you’ll only have to wait until tomorrow – please allow Grumpy Cat to get you through your day.  If you can manage to get your head up off your keyboard.

Enjoy the ride.

What kind of shenanigans did you get into this long holiday weekend?

Let’s Get This Party Started

This is really just a lame attempt at trying to get myself psyched up for another dreaded Monday….

I am happy to report that after the hubby and I decided to rejoin the gym world, my first workout was a really good one.  Since the hubby is still making inhuman noises in his sleep thanks to his cold, he begged off for a few more days, so I flew solo for a leg workout.  I’m at T-minus 59 days until I can run again, and plan on making sure I don’t have a repeat performance of the dreaded ITBS like back at the Donald Half in January.

Run away ITBS, run away!

Run away ITBS, run away!

I have to admit it felt SO good beat up the gams again!  Following a 20-minute interval warm-up on the ARC machine, I proceeded to squat, extend, raise, abduct, and adduct my way into lactic acid heaven.

Needless to say, I’m walking a little funny today, but it was oh-so worth it.

As a proud member of Team #RunDisney, part of this month’s Photo-A-Day-Challenge, was to submit your goals.  This is what I came up with:

March Goals

I think after sweating up a storm by adding in bodyweight exercises in between each set of machines, I hit at least part of #1 and #2 with no trouble whatsoever.  I even did pretty well with the cleaner eating.  (Right up until the scoop of vanilla ice cream with Thin Mints added to look like Mickey Mouse just before hitting the hay…heavy sigh…)

After the how-much-more-can-the-legs-actually-do-beatdown, I was ready to chow down on some kale salad and hit the couch at my favorite bar – conveniently located on my back patio -with this girl.

Soooo tired....

Soooo tired….

Six bottles of Propel, what felt like three pounds of shrimp and pasta salad, and eight episodes of Game of Thrones later, the Wonder Mutt and I were ready to call it a day.  Curse you On Demand TV!

Enjoy the ride.

What goals have you set for yourself this month?

Dollar Machine Monday

Here we are facing another Monday way to soon, and the brain is still in a fog from the weekend.   Have no fear, as I’m about to slam the gears into overdrive and get your week started in an entertaining fashion.  So you better hang on, the dollars are revving up!

Groupon minions apparently slept through history class: In a press release issued by Groupon last Friday, the daily deal company stated they were honoring President Alexander Hamilton by taking $10 off any $40 purchase.  Alexander never served as president, but as the first Secretary of the Treasury.  Had this press release been issued on a Monday, I could have completely understood.

Bob Costas cuts career as a pirate short:  The entertaning, yet germ-infested Olympic host is rumored to be returning to his broadcasting throne in Sochi this evening.  Rumor has it all attempts at voicing a properly intimidating “Aye matey”, resulted in the rest of the crew falling overboard from laughter.

Jimmy Fallon afraid head not large enough for the Tonight Show: Anonymous sources (okay, not really, I just made that up), state they’re afraid no one will be able to see the new host as he takes over the reigns of the Tonight Show, due to his significantly diminished cranial dimensions.  Discussion among the camera guys has centered on the inability to zoom in as the lenses have been stuck in the same position since Leno and his notoriusly large melon occupied the popular night time desk.

5th Olympic Snowflake Ring refuses to open in protest to curling as an Olympic Event:  While the world watched in amusement as the Russian concept of the Olympic Rings failed to properly display, a behind the scenes conversation revealed the true reason for the mishap.  Snowflake #5 was heard to say as the display tracked out into the center of the arena, “The sweeping must stop!  Snowflakes and ice have just as much right to participate in these games as anybody else!”

Happy Monday everyone!

Enjoy the ride.

How do you get your motor revving on a Monday morning?
