Cats and Workouts

Like I’ve said before, my two favourite things! (What.  I’ve been watching a lot of Downton Abbey, so favourite is correct, correct?)



Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard that the newest Monopoly token is the cat, and the iron is NO MORE.  My first thought was, who is buying Monopoly anymore?  Doesn’t everybody already have a set that needs one? 

I mean, we don’t own one because Chris and I are definitely not allowed to play Monopoly (there was an unfortunate incident in late 1999/early 2000 and since then we have banned ourselves)…but my parents have a game so if we siblings ever feel like we are getting along too well or starting to feel genuine affection for each other…we can always play a game. 

Pro tip:  try to be banker.  If not, just bully your sisters into a variety of ridiculous trades by playing on their emotional attachment to the pink, purple and blue properties.  (I’m looking at you, Jesse.  Plus I know you had to be stealing from the bank, right?  Surely we just weren’t that bad at the game?)



I’m BACK to the gym and it feels fantastic.  For instance, yesterday was pull ups, dead lifts, shoulder press, rows, push ups, and something else that I don’t know the name for. 

Running…I need to get my act together, but I can’t just yet.  I’m prioritizing and the audition comes first.  Everything else is secondary until after that.  Plus I’m mad at running because it did this to me.  I was thinking I was all hard core and awesome…but really I just feel pretty gross and I’m ashamed.


Not too ashamed to share here…but still.  That belonged to a toe, you guys.  YOU GUYS.  I painted my toenails the day before I realized it needed to go.  Don’t worry, I’m not posting any pictures of my toe, sans nail.  If you really want one, ask, I’ll email you.

What else is new?  I’ve got some giveaways happening here on the blog:  slippers, a PDF book, and an entry for a Fitness event at Wash U.  I’d recommend entering, it costs nothing…

P.S. I’m ridiculously sore and having trouble walking from the deadlifts yesterday.  YES.
