10 Things Friday Night?

I've never really done a 10 things thursday, but I'm in the mood to blog today so hey!  Why not?!

**and now here it is Friday night and I'm just finishing it 10 things Friday Night!**

1.  I wish it would either be fall or summer....TN/KY can't seem to its hot sticky and humid out today and cold wet and cloudy yesterday.  That kind of crazy back and forth weather just means I'm going to get a cold.  I may have to open a can of whoopass on the weather...

2.  I'm on the outs with protein drinks.  I can't seem to stand them right now which is bad because its one of the ONLY ways I get in enough protein.  **forcing one down my gullet as I type.**. I can only stomach Atkins and Pure Protein right now...what kind do you use?

3.  FOURTY TWO DAYS.  Thats all thats left until I get to see my husband after 9 months of deployment.  Then we have another three to go...but I'm counting down...FOURTY TWO DAYS.

4.  When I see him in 42 days we are going here... Cozumel, Mexico...I am SO SO EXCITED.  It's my first time to Cozumel and I'm looking forward to beaches, sunshine, Mexican food and a little romance.

5.  I kicked my butt today again in exercise-land.  I did Tabata AND Zumba.  Ugh.  I'm so sore and tired.  Today's tabat moves were speed skater, plank walks, high knee tire run, and back lunges with a hop.  

6.  Today (Friday) was a fill day!  Yahoo.  I really needed one.  Doc says my labs look good...then tells me that my numbers (labs) are on par with a Gastric patient...meaning they improved much faster than expected.  WOOT!

7.  Now for the sad least sad to me.  I'm only dropping an average of 1pound per week.  Doc says that is just my body's thing.  Whatever that means...essentially that my loss will be slow...and despite my efforts to the contrary that's just how it's going to be.

8.  If you haven't watched the "I Quit" video you should.  Clever clever....and if you go HERE you can watch the original video, the company's response, and a pretty great stay at home mom parody.

9.  I have now been exposed to the most horrific creepy crawlies in this house.  I just sucked up a giant house centipede.  I've never seen one before and now I'm all skeeved out...that thing ran FAST...I had to chase it with the vacuum.  Ugh.  I just want a bug free that so much to ask?


That is all...


  1. I live in western, ky. I feel ya on the weather.
    Also, check out medifast products. They are high protien and low sugar and about a hundred calories for a packet. They have shakes, but the also have a lot of other stuff. I like the chicken noodle soup and the cereal. They taste really good which probably accounts for how expensive they are.

    1. I haven't done mediastinal because of the cost, but maybe they are a good occasional filler meal...

  2. I love your posts and I'm so glad you were in the mood to blog today!

    So many things...the weather. Ugggh. Here in Arkansas too. They say relief is coming, but I'm skeptical.

    I know you already know I love me some Unjury. Have you tried that one? The only thing that sucks is that you cannot buy it in stores, but their customer service is amazing.

    Cozumel!!!! I'm so jealous. We spent part of our honeymoon there. I know this isn't a helpful bandster suggestion, but two words: Pancho's Backyard. One of the neatest restaurants we went to and the guacamole is out of this world. 41 days! Yea!

    1. I need to try unjury. i hear a lot of people like it...but I haven't done it because its so hard to get. ugh. And thanks for the cozumel suggestion...I've added Pancho's Backyard to my list of places to check out! ;)

  3. Love this post :) BTW I drink Chike Iced Coffee Protein Shakes.. I love them have drank them for the last 6+months everyday

    1. Never even heard of Chike iced coffee protein shakes...I'll have to check them out too! Thanks for the suggestion.
