totally crazy day

I've had a crazy day today. The internet has been down for the majority of the day. Bring in AT&T to save the day..... don't hold your breath just yet.

The repair guy showed up quicker than I thought he would and he was a very nice man. He told me he was new (uh-oh) and would see if he couldn't get the problem resolved. He installed a whole house filter, did something outside on the phone box and it seemed to be working. Cut to 30 minutes later.... no internet again. UGH! Luckily, he left me his card and cell number and told me to call if it didn't work again. So, I did! I think he might've been a little surprised to hear from me, but he said " I knew I would regret not changing out that modem!" So, I now have a new modem. We'll see if that fixes the problem. I hope so!

Meredith came over in the midst of all the internet fun and we did Brazil Butt Lift Bum Bum workout. It was good and I think we'll both feel it in the morning. She told me that Leandro ( the workout trainer in the videos) reminded her of Franc from Father of the Bride. Not in the way he looked, but in the way he talked. When he told us to move backwards, Meredith thought he said something about the curves. So, we laughed and sweat through the whole thing! That is always a good thing :)

My eating has been odd today. I've been hungry all day. I had my pb oatmeal for breakfast, it was yummy sweetened with agave nectar and a splash of almond milk. At 10:00, I was starving again. Leftover pasta primavera was calling my name. Lunch was a tofurky sandwich on the new thin buns. I REALLY like the thin buns. 100 calories and multi-grain to boot! I added a little hummus and a couple of tortilla chips ( I don't think I've ever mentioned my love of tortilla chips hmmmm.. that could be a whole other post).

It's almost time for my next workout today. Brian, Jason and Kristi are coming over to be tortured, I mean, workout with me. I haven't decided what we will do. Maybe some yoga, maybe some Insanity. Just have to see what I feel like when they walk through the door.

What are your favorite workouts? Do you prefer the gym or working out at home. Machines vs. videos?


  1. Stopping by from SITS :)

    I haven't had hummus in months - I must remedy that!

  2. I am a gym work-er-outer! But I have been a good girl and have starting running on the treadmill again since Marshall brought it home from work (where it has been stored for over a year!). I have been downloading "Glee" and watching that while I run---it sure makes the miles go faster=)

  3. I work out at home and lately have been very bad!I gained some weight this Holiday and Monday I am going to start my workout regimen once again full force!

  4. Of course you know I'm in P90X mode (and loving it!) Also a HUGE fan of Yoga Booty Ballet. And sometimes the treadmill in front of the TV is what I need. ;-)

  5. What a fun blog, and one I could use to get myself in gear.
    I got a fun package in the mail yesterday with humas in it! Never tried it, but am eager to.
    Found you on SITS...Happy New Year!

  6. I'm an outdoor-lover and love to get my workouts outside, but living in NJ in the winter is tough. There never seems to be enough snow for cross country skiing. Well, there is some coming down today. Perhaps I'll be able to get a New Year's ski in.
