Cable’s Back = Geeking Out

We finally have our cable back which means I can blog again from my computer! So happy I’m geeking out! 🙂

Let’s get to this afternoon’s eats.

Lunch:

For lunch I enjoyed Sara Lee Low Sodium Turkey roll-ups with cherry tomatoes. I wanted something light and filling since I was skipping my lunch to leave work an hour early.

An hour later I sprinkled a little bit of PB2 on the sweet potato slices for a sweet afternoon snack.

I might have celebrated Halloween a day early with a Cookies & Cream Hershey’s fun-size bar.

Okay, so we really had the fun-sized candy in the marketing department for a trade show tomorrow, but we’ll just go with the Halloween idea. 😉

Todays outfit:

Plaid Button-Down: J.Crew

Black Jeggings: American Eagle

Cheetah Flats: Bandolino (DSW)

Purse: Steve Madden

After leaving work an hour early, I went for a 1-mile warm up run and followed it with the P90X Pylometrics workout.

I was a freakin’ beast! I literally rung sweat from that mofo. My legs were extremely tight, especially after running outside all weekend, so I plopped myself into a much-needed ice bath.

My little legs are so sore and my eyes are getting heavy. Time to chip away at Gone Girl. It was due today and I’m not allowed to renew it since there’s a long wait for it so I’m trying to read it quickly. Stinkin’ late fees are no fun!

Sleepless in New Hampshire

Last week J.Crew Outlets emailed me “personally” 😉 to tell me that there was a 30% off sale on tops, including the clearance price. I freaked out and dropped everything I was doing to see if the shirt I bought last weekend was on sale. Guess what, it was! I got the shirt in a red, white and blue scheme, along with a very pretty bracelet for a grand total of $50 dollars. Steal! My package arrived last night so of course I HAD to wear the new top today. I feel like such a cowgirl!

Going Cray for my New J.Crew Shirt!

Okay, moving along past the excitement.  Last night I went to Primetime Wellness after getting my rump kicked in spinning, and downed a Reese’s Peanut Butter smoothie while talking with David and Melyssa about the company and becoming a distributor of Herbalife. Well, I joined, and will now be spreading the love and success of Herbalife to everyone and anyone, I’m so excited about this new venture! I will get into the company a little later on when I have more time to sit down and discuss it in full-depth.

Along with my smoothie, I received a tea, which I’m PRETTTTTTTY positive was laced with caffeine, which resulted in me waking up at 3am for a trip to the bathroom and kept me awake until 5am. Really cool, especially since my alarm went off at 5:35am. I’m a zombie, and will probably be skipping spinning tonight since I’m exhausted and feel like I could throw up. If I get sick before seeing Kip tomorrow night, I will tear shit up! Watch out immune system, don’t mess with me!

I snoozed an extra time this morning, as I deserved it after last night’s torture, and only lost a few minutes from my normal running period. I struggled through 3.1 miles, part due to my lack of sleep and also due to my little legs getting owned in spinning.

Morning Workout

  • 3.1 mile run
  • 2 sets of 1 minute planks
  • 2 sets of 20 mountain climbers
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 2 sets of 13 squats with overhead dumbbell press, 8 lbs.
  • 2 sets of 13 deadlifts with chest extension, 8 lbs. dumbbells
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side crunches, 8 lbs. dumbbells
  • Stretching

The core work felt extremely good, and I’m looking forward to tackling a cardio hodgepodge session today during lunch. Hope everyone is having a more “alert” Tuesday than I am.

Gypsy Weekend with the College Girls

Like I said earlier, this weekend has been cray cray. My former college roomies came up to NH this weekend for our Gypsy Weekend, and it was quite the event! It was so good seeing those girls. Lindsay lives the next town over from me so we’re always together, but I hadn’t seen Michelle since October, and Nicole since last June!

Michelle came Friday night, but because I was in RI seeing Chris, Linds and Michelle went out, and I headed to Lindsay’s Saturday after my 4.2 mile run.

We ended up going to the Merrimack Outlets, which just opened up several months ago, to buy some cute new clothes. We all made out with some very cute purchase, which I’m excited about! I was good with my money and only bought one shirt from J.Crew. I SO could have spent hundreds there, but since I’m so good with my money, I simply treated myself to one top, which I’m IN LOVE with.

After that, we hit up the grocery store where we bought ingredients to bake Nicole birthday cupcakes. Her birthday is Tuesday! Upon getting back to Lindsay’s condo, we started baking up a storm and thought it’d be fun to experiment with food coloring to make pretty frosting.

We then had fun with some sprinkles!

Who Doesn’t Love Sprinkles?!

After baking, we all showered and got dolled up before heading downtown for a couple of beers at my favorite bar, Murphy’s. There, we met a couple of guys, talked, had a blast, and we ran into the boy I had my first kiss with. What a small world!

 

My Girls

Today, Nicole came up, as she was busy Saturday and couldn’t make it, so once she arrived, we went out for a yummy lunch at The Puritan (the girls wanted their famous mudslides), and we caught up for a long time before heading back to Lindsay’s. We then devoured the cupcakes (after making Nicole blow out her candles first), and continued to catch up before the girls had to start their drives home to Boston and CT.

Birthday Cupcakes

Time for me to catch up on laundry, my messes around the house and editing several pictures from Friday night. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Single and Swiping

In the online dating world, Tinder is considered especially heinous. In Boston, the hopeful females who swipe through these profiles are members of an elite squad known as "Single and Swiping". These are their stories.
