image

That’s from google, i haven’t subjeted him to photos for the blog yet lol.

And i lost 2 hours of my life watching pandorm

image

Dennis Quaid, i am disappointed in you.

This morning i got up and headed to the airport to fly back Reno for my friends wedding.

image

We hit some turbulence which was a little scary. Its amazing how the older i get the more turbulance my flights seem to hit, or maybe it just sticks with me more now.

I enjoyed lunch at the airport

image

Got MOD pizza, it was really quick and yummy, i liked the super thin dough.

image

Reno is so classy isn’t it? Hahahahaha

Had to pick up some shoes for the wedding and spent some time with my friend. Now im in my room relaxing, watchig American ninja warrior lol

image

I had dinner delivered because i dont have a car. I chose the cheapest of my options but tried to be healthy and fill up on mostly the salad. And ive got enough pizza for the rest of my trip lol

image

And now i need to reserve a car to rent for tomorrow.

How did you spend your Saturday?

Have you ever rented a car? This will be my first time.

Happy Friday!!!!!!

Hi all!!

Its been a good week, though the last 2 days i have been super bloated, like painful and uncomfortable. I think my body is kicking my butt for not eating very healthy lately so its time to change that.

Not eating healthy has made me super tired at work. Last week and this week i caved and got a 5 hour energy and nursed it for a few days.

image

Today i have been eating fruit from my organics to you box

image

Delicious peaches!!!
And activia hoping that would help

image

I didnt do meal prep this week so i got some frozen dinners

image

Not great for me but better than fast food. Also smaller portions on my stomach.

Speaking of food though…..the guy is cooking me dinner tonight!!!! How sweet!

Ill let you know how his cooking is hahahahaha.

I am doing a littlr better.

The week is more than half over wooohoo!!!!
Monday i went to dinner and a movie why my new guy. We saw ‘vacation’ i thought it was hilarious! Not quite as classic as the original but still really funny.
Tuesday the amazing new guy came over and put together my new bed frame and my roommates treadmill. He spent 2 hours putting things together for me and my roomie. He is soooo wonderful!
Today i enjoy thr leftover candy from our movie lol

image

I have drank more high calorie coffee drinks than i should

image

But on the plus side i went to the gym tonight and did my 3 miles!

image

Then i hit the pool and did 4 or 6 laps, i can’t remember. I know that doesnt sound like a lot but ive only done 12 as a max before and that was not having run first. I’m working back into it.
Post gym selfie

image

Talk to you soon!!!

What was the last movie you saw?

What was your workout today?

Book Review**And Then There Were None

Happy Saturday!!!

41VyLqUA8tL._SX333_BO1,204,203,200_

This is my first Agatha Christie novel!
It was originally published under the name Ten Little Indians.

This is a true good old fashion who dun it, there is little to no gore, no romance, no sex, just plain set em up and knock em down. I think a lot of people my age and younger wont like it for its simplicity and slow build but it most definitely will not be my last Agatha Christie novel. I finished the book at about 10:30 at night, the book kept me guessing about the killer the whole way through and i admit i was a little paranoid about my sliding door being open before i finished it and found out the killer hahahahaha.

The only downfall was that my book had one of those unique printing errors.

image

I dont know if you can see it but my book goes from page 178 to page 83. A chunk of my book repeated itself so i missed about 25 pages and 2 murders lol.
Overall i enjoyed the book and never saw the killer coming. She’s not referred to as the queen of mystery for nothing!

Have you ever read an Agatha Christie novel? If so, which one and what did you think of it?

5k Race Review

Hi!!!!!

So on Saturday i ran the Shoc 5K to support ovarian cancer research.

image

We started and ended at the Gladstone Harley dealer! Thank you Harley Davidson!

image

The route was really nice, went through some foresty, shaded areas.

There were 2 water stations on the 5k which was really nice but i wish they had spread them farther apart, i was dying for 2 miles then got two water stations in the last mile.

Other than that i liked it.

image

We got breakfast afterwards! Pancakes, eggs and sausage. There were also bagels and bananas and coffee and water.

image

Crossing the finish line!!! I ran it in 44:46, which was a 14:28/mile average. That is by no means fast but i am happy with it.
I really liked that not long after i crossed the finish line i got text telling me my time. That was awesome!
Also got an email with a finishers certificate. Personally i reallt liked that.

I’ll be rocking my race shirt at work on Monday 😄

Overall i enjoyed the race, i could tell it was a little bit of a lower budget/smaller operation but i still really enjoyed it. I think I’ll be back next year!!!

Oooh and i got one of the sponsors to evaluate my running gait and tell me i had good shoes for my running! Yay!!!

My weekend

I had a good weekend!

Friday night i finished season 6 of True Blood and hit the hay early.
Saturday morning i got up early becasue i had my 5k race to run!

image

I’ll review the race for you tomorrow.
My awesome roommate C, came and cheered me on at my race!

The rest of Saturday was spent relaxing and watching the Amazing race until i got tired of it and switched the Long way Round hahahahaha!

I made frittatas for the week while watching TV

image

They exploded a little bit while cooking but still taste good!!!!

image

I put 4 in the freezer to pull out during the week and left 2 in the fridge for Monday. 

Sunday i again got up early, C and i picked up B and met J to go hiking!!! (I sound like an episode of gossip girl hahahahaha) .

image

We got a delicious breakfast first then went on a hike that was only like a mile total lol but it was crazy beautiful and crazy to get to. You had to climb a wall of trees and wade through some pools.

image

image

Yea we climbed that.  It was fun, we felt very bad ass and adventurous.

image

The views were insane!!!! No i didnt take this picture, i got it on google.

image

Obviously we took this one lol

image

It was freezing!!! But so fun!

image

It was definitely worth it but very crowded which suprised me. People had their dogs and kids and people were in jeans and stuff. The tree climbing was intense.

Got some food at food carts, came home and relaxed a little then went to see the new mission impossible with my roommates. Whew!!! Active weekend! But so much fun!!!
