Screw you, Dinner!

First day of school: Survived

WOD: Survived

Spin Class: Survived

Grocery Shopping: Survived (and saved by the coupons!)

Dinner: Definitely died. I tried to make Pumpkin Ravioli, what an epic fail!

I love my Health Psychology class. Our first project, due at the end of term, is to work on changing or modifying a particular health behavior. (Quitting smoking, getting more sleep, eating healthier, exercising, etc.) Everyone is jumping on the "Exercise more" bandwagon. I think I have that health habit down pretty well. I'm considering keeping a food journal. Yeah, writing it all down, calories, macros, etc. That or learning to meditate.

The Business Writing class seems legit. A few large papers, a lot of research, but a decent text that is smart and resourceful, and all of the assignments actually seem applicable in real life. My professor is funny as shizz. Odd, considering the boring nature of the subject. Unless you find writing Bibliographies exciting. In which case, I may hire you. Shoot me an email. Kidding. But no, really ...

The WOD this morning was beautiful. I warmed up with a 2 mile run and my regular warm up routine of pass throughs, pull ups, squats, lunges, hand stand push ups, holds, rowing, etc.

The actual timed workout was this:


Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
Front Squats

65#, Rx'ed, 6:17

So that's 21 Sumo Deadlift High pulls, then 21 Front Squats, then 15 Sump Deadlift High Pulls, then 15 Front Squats, then 9, etc. Use the same bar and the same weight for each exercise, plow through it as fast as you can! I finished in 6 minutes and 17 seconds.

Then an hour of spin. Man, the girl teaching our spin class, bless her soul. She's only a volunteer for the day, and has no idea what she's doing. I'm sure she means well. I think she was having us pedal at medium intensity while also doing tricep extensions. Except, she has no idea what proper form looks like for a tricep extension, so it just kind of looked like she was flailing her arms around, pointing at something below and behind her, elbow all over the place. Yeeeahhhhh ... 

We don't need to go into the details of grocery shopping.

Except that I found VitaTops for $2.50!

I love my Commissary! Anywhere else on the planet, they're almost $6 a box. A box holds 4 of those silly little muffin things! I could not believe how cheap they were! And they had more flavors than I have seen anywhere else! Banana, Oatmeal and Chocolate. You bet your tight and toned booty I snatched them all up.

And um, I had such a disaster trying to make Pumpkin Ravioli tonight, that I told my husband I quit making dinner. Forever. I'm totally cool with TV dinners. Or cookies. I'm good at making those. And even better at eating them!


  1. Glad you survived the first day of school! Dinner mishaps happen way to often in my house to! ha!
    Cookies sound delish right now

  2. Don't they always sound delish? There is never a bad time for cookies.

  3. Im glad you had a good day in school! it looks like you had a good intense workout. i decided to workout at home rather than the gym because sometimes it gets so crowded in the afternoon. the cookies look yummy but not for my tommy;-) have a good evening..

  4. Pretty sure those cookies are calling my name :)

    Glad you survived your first day of school!
