Yes, I know it's been a while, but if I don't have anything interesting to say I don't just want to blog about nothing and waste your time. See how considerate I am? Yes, considerate, that's it.

Just a couple of quick things today:

In case you didn't know, Mantracker is no more. The button heads at the production company decided it was time for a new tracker and have ousted my beloved  cowboy. I won't watch with a replacement, they can go suck an egg. And then swallow it, shit it out whole and then suck on it again.

My landlord is NOT selling my place so I don't have to move. Most of you already know this but I thought I should update the rest of you. Of course as soon as that happens and I say I'm going to stay another year a really loud, non English speaking family (of at least 18 people, I swear) has moved in across the hall. As if the screaming baby in the other apt wasn't enough now I have these people with their yappy dog who they yell at in some language that I don't understand. Oh, side note on the baby - I was thisclose to calling child protective services because it screamed day and night - and not just crying, SCREAMING, but I've since decided the thing is just retarded and instead I will turn up my music and let it scream.

I've issued myself a challenge, a 30 day Get Moving challenge. I'm trying to do something exercise like for at least 20 mins a day for 30 days. Today is day 6 and I will be doing the 30 Day Shred for the 4th day in a row this afternoon (this is a miracle because I usually quit after 2 days of pain). I figure if I can get in the habit of doing some sort of exercise I will a) not die of heart disease b) not be a sweaty out of breath fat reject when walking up a flight of stairs and c) maybe lose some of my blubber. I won't lie if I eff up and miss a day, there is no use it that, but I am going to do my best and if I can make it 30 days I will be rewarding myself with a chocolate peanut butter pie or something (the whole pie to myself, obviously!).

My 30 day challenge to myself and my upcoming blog thingy (details next post) are both inspired by my friend NC. I don't know that she would want me to post her blog link her, but she is doing a 30 post blog challenge that tackles a specific personal topic each day and I think I would like to try this as well. She has also been making incredible strides at living a healthier lifestyle which is what I'm working on. I'm so proud of her and I channel her energy every day to get my ass moving and after reading her blog I have learned a lot about her that I didn't know which has made her an even more amazing person to me. There is only one crappy thing about NC, and that is that we have never met in person yet - she's in Texas and I'm stuck in the frozen tundra. I'm hoping to change that in the next year though with a visit to Texas after Steamboat. I hope she realizes I just invited myself over....

Well, that's it for now. It's a long weekend - whoo hoo! I'm not going to the Heritage Classic but I am gearing up for the Daytona 500 on Sunday (Git R Done Jr!) and a generally quiet time with BF who has finally recovered from being sick last week.


  1. Well, you certainly kicked my ass at my own challenge. Kudos!
    And if you come to Texas and I DON'T meet you, I will be VERY upset!

  2. I hope you are as disappointed in NUMBER Unlucky THIRTEEN(Every time I put the races on for the past three years, He is in thirteenth place) as I am. And I would LOVE to tell you about my 40 day -No exercise recommended- healthy eating, 41 lbs later challenge. We really need to talk on the Phone!!
