Confessions of a Meathead

Hey kids!  Blogging twice in a day?  I know- madness! 

This afternoon we took a nice walk to the ATM machine and to see hubby's grandma.  It was a nice walk and quite muggy since it was supposed to rain today.  I found it quite pleasant since I'm freezing all the time!  After our walk, we went to get hubby's haircut and I spent my time at H&M.  I may or may not have purchased a sweater, a pair of jeans, and a long bright pink tank top!  I feel like I didn't shop all last year while we were saving up for the wedding and now I am a shopping maniac and embracing it.  Yeah for consumerism!

After our field trip we drove straight to the gym and I proceeded to do something that is completely out of  character.  I watched football on the flat screens in our gym as I did cardio.  I have to give you a little background- I have never liked football.  I only started watching it for the same reason that my hubby watched America's Next Top Model- procrastination and avoiding grad school homework!  The crazy thing is that I actually got into it.  I don't know all the rules (boooooring!) but it has grown on me and I can not only tolerate games, but even give little cheers as I watch Mr. Bush score a crazy touchdown while I'm on the elliptical.  I looked around and I was the only girl in that section.  I observed the rest of the neckless meatheads and smiled because I was just like them now :)

I don't know how long I was on the elliptical- maybe 40 minutes?  I also ran for 15 minutes and busted out 3 sets of pushups- 15, 15, and 10.  That's 40 REAL pushups ya'll!
My post-workout snack was the fabulous yogurt my hubby graciously stopped for:

Plain tart, taro, and superfruit tart yogurt with blackberries, raspberries, lychee, coconut, a few chocolate covered pomegranates, and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs.  (Or my personal interpretation of rainbows, unicorns, and diamonds)

I don't know when I'll catch up with you next, but I'm looking forward to it!  I love reading your comments and being a part of this community.

What a nice hubby you have! Nick brought me home two pieces of ice cream cake from DQ. I was very happy, yet also annoyed (2 pieces?!?! I mean come on!)

I never thought I would EVER like golf, and now I actually enjoy watching it, so I can relate to your football story!
