Petty in Pink

Just stopped by my neighborhood healthy dog food store to buy my Winnie some wet food.  Now, we go in there all the time and for a few years now, since they opened.  I have never once used cash to purchase anything in the store.  I mean, who the hell is running around with all this cash in their wallets these days?  So, when the annoying moron employee wouldn’t stamp my gosh darn rewards card I was peeved.  I paid with a debit card.  I always pay with my debit card.  I always get stamped.  I’ve redeemed my previously stamped cards for $10 off my next purchase.  Why should today be any different?  Because people become fucking greedy assholes, that’s why.  I explained to moron that I always get stamped and I never have paid cash and she just kept repeating that it was cash only like it was the only phrased infused in her after the droid bots got a hold of her teeny tiny brain.  Whatever happened to good customer service?  I would have said, “no problem, you are here all the time, spend plenty of money so I’ll stamp your dumb card.”  I hope they get more complaints cause this is just ridiculous.


Spill The Wine

Confessions of a wine hoarder 

Is it bad that I feel guilty whenever I open up an expensive bottle of red wine on a random Wednesday night?  I mean, I pay upwards of $50-$70 for these bottles.  I feel horrible that I’m not having a dinner party with the wine.  It’s like the wine is the guest of honor at the party and no one shows up but me.  Poor un-appreciated wine.  So so sad.  Sniff.  My husband doesn’t like wine, my 4 year old prefers white, so it’s just me.  Do I sit alone singing UB40 to myself while secretly indulging?  I think I just need to have more dinner parties.

In It To Win It

OK, day 1 of Insanity is DONE! Woo hoo! Everyone jump (because I didn’t do enough of that this morning)! Ok, so it’s hard. It made Bikram feel like a walk in the park. It was only the fit test for goodness sakes; what do I have to look forward to? No, seriously, it wasn’t THAT bad. I mean, it wasn’t SO bad that I won’t continue. No way, I’m in it! It definitely reminds me of my old boxing class I used to take at the multigen. That class was intense. 1.5 hours long and before you started, you had to run a mile. What? But, I got through it. It was the same format…lots of old school calisthenics mixed with some newer cardio craziness. The difference is that the class was 1.5 hours once a week. This thing is 6 days on, 1 day off for 45 minutes each day. Honestly, though, I feel great. I love starting my day off with exercise. I practically skipped into work this morning. We’ll see how tomorrow goes!

For all your bagpiping needs

Yes, it says “bagpiping by Van.”  Alrighty then.

Am I Insane or What?

March 14, 2013 § Leave a comment

Tomorrow, that is, the day after today, I will start the Insanity workout thingy.

So, nothing works anymore.  I got married with a size 4/6 body and after 6 years, 1 child, and 1 enormous glass of wine later, I’m a whole lot bigger.  It’s really not a pretty site.  Anyway, I try to eat well (when the heavy drinking isn’t clouding my judgement).  I exercise regularly.  Oh, and when I say “exercise regularly,”  I mean it.  I go to Bikram Yoga 3 times a week.  Now if you’ve never done Bikram you are saying to yourself, “uh, so what?”  If you have done Bikram before you are thinking “you go girlfriend.”

While Bikram is so good for you and it has seriously changed my body’s insides and my life for the better, it has not effected the outer body…the body that everyone sees…with their eyes.  In fact, I’ve been gaining weight steadily.  It’s like, you’ve got to be kidding me!

So, the other night in Napa (a whole other blog) while the room was spinning away, I turned on the tv and watched the Insanity workout infomercial.  Holy shit!  These people are looking good!  It reminded me of the boxing class I used to take but that class was only once a week.  This thing is a 60 day challenge.  6 days on, 1 day off, 45 minutes each day.  OK, let’s do this thing!

So tomorrow will be the beginning.  I’ll try to keep you posted (by you, I mean me, cause I’m probably the only one reading this shit).  Maybe posting my progress will keep me motivated to keep going.  And, no, I will not post before pictures.  No one wants to lose their lunch over me.  Maybe I’ll post body snippets and people can just put them together like a puzzle.  Ha ha!  Here goes nothing!

Olive You Not

March 1, 2013 § Leave a comment

I think olives are gross.  I don’t know what it is (well I do, it’s the taste) that makes me want to vomit whenever I even get a tinge of olive essence on my tongue.  I’m eating this great Greek salad that I picked up from Fresh and Easy but discarded all of the olives prior to chomping away.  Now, my question, is it really weird if I also disposed of the plastic fork that I used to get rid of my olives?  Well, I did, so there.  Mmmmm, I love Greek salad.  : )

Where Am I?
