Ten Thoughts on Thursday

I am feeling a little random today, so I think I am going to do 10 on Thursday!

1. I did a Focus T25 work out this morning. I am going to start the actual month on Monday, but I just wanted to test the waters today and tomorrow to see what I am getting in to. I did the cardio work out. I was actually impressed with myself that I didn’t have to use the “easy version” of the work out the entire time. In fact, of the 25 minutes I probably only did 4-5 minutes of the moderated work out moves and it was only because the arch of my foot was cramping up, not because I couldn’t handle it. I think doing the 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30 work outs really have allowed me to build up a little endurance. How do I feel after? It has been 2 hours and my thighs be burning! I was drenched in sweat afterwards too so I know I burned some calories and had my heart rate up.

2. I am SOOOOOO tired of hearing about the damn Iron Bowl. I haven’t really seen any of my Alabama friends saying much about the game since Sunday. Yet for some reason there are a ton of Auburn people complaining about Bama fans being sore losers. Um, you know what is worse than being a sore loser? Complaining about sore losers several days later. Maybe have some class and act like you’ve won before?

3. I can’t believe that it is already the 5th of December!!! When I think about it, this year really has flown by. I am not sad to see 2013 gone though. I’m hoping for a better 2014!

4. Mac has left the Christmas tree alone all this week. I am so proud of the self control he has displayed. Usually that picture is Mac. Only a 7 lb white furry dog version. Haha. He has walked up to it several times, with a glaze of glitter ornaments shining in his eyes then he remembers he is trying to be a good boy and walks away. Maybe looking back a time or two.

5. Damn. At least we are just one day away!

6.Can someone please tell me why it is 78 degrees today? It is hot and humid and nasty! The weather is supposed to drop a lot tomorrow. Awesome. I ALWAYS get sick when this happens 🙁 I understand why there are Eskihos now. It is because it is summer weather in the winter and you don’t know how to dress! Why do I live in the south? Sometimes I forget!

7. That was me this morning. Guzzling Emergen-C like it is the only way into Heaven. I will not get sick. I WILL NOT GET SICK. (My throat is scratchy. I am pretending like it isn’t.)

8.I am loving all the Christmas themed posts all over blog land! It really gets me in the spirit. I have a few of my own scheduled over the next few weeks!

9. Christmas shopping was seriously a success for me last weekend. I think we are at least half way done (maybe more) with buying all the presents. Two more arrived on our door step last night from Amazon. Feels so good! I love Amazon Prime!

10. I am seriously in love with my Spotify Christmas playlist. I listen to it in the car mostly. Try having road rage when you have Christmas music blasting. You can’t! Lauren was so kind to send me her playlist too. I have over 100 songs but it is never enough. What is your favorite Christmas song? I can always add more to my list! If you want to follow my playlist because you don’t have time to download over 100 songs….my Spotify name is Nadine708. Please don’t judge me if it tells you I listen to the same song 20 times in a row.

    OH NO!!!! You can’t be getting sick! I pretty much stay home unless I have to get out to go to the dr or run the occasional errand. I’m trying to stay away from every one in hopes that I will not get bad sick like I was. I can’t take anything to prevent it or anything when I get it, so I don’t need it! Ha! So please weather — pick a season and stick with it!! I have a lot of people to buy for, but most of it’s gift cards, so I can’t get them on amazon. BOO!

    omg that cat! That is hilarious! I’m glad Mac is behaving, what a good boy. Hawkeye doesn’t bug my tree, she’s never been an ornament hunter. But instead of a tree skirt, I have these fluffy white faux sheepskin rugs, and she’s claimed them as her own. By the time I get home, they’re all dragged off the tree and into her bed.
    I am willing myself not to get sick either! I woke up with a scratchy throat that made it hurt a little in my ears. Not happening! I took like 52 forms of germ killing drugs. It better work.

    That? That is my cat to a tee. Love Amazon Prime. So amazing that you are so dedicated to working out THAT early. I am super impressed! And I am excited to follow you on spotify now! Is the mobile version free or do you have to pay?

    I’m super proud of my Auburn Tigers, but you’re right, the Iron Bowl was last weekend, it’s time to move on to the next. I definitely haven’t seen any sore Bama losers, in fact, it’s been the opposite!

    I’m so jealous you have a tree up. It looks like we aren’t going to have one this year, thanks to moving. And as for Spotify, is it worth the monthly charge? I’ve been debating on it.

    i was getting a scratchy/sore throat and my tell-tale sign of getting sick: when i breathe out through my nose, it feels ‘hot’. strange but it’s the only way to describe it. how i kicked that shit right out of my system in ONE night:

    1) made my lemon/honey syrup and guzzled that shit down. like, all of it. 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 cup lemon, 3/4 cup honey; warm in pot (not boiling) and mix. then drink the shit out of it.
    2) take a multi vitamin and 2 garlic pills.
    3) take 2 full drops of oil of oregano – one before dinner and one before bed. tastes like fucking asshole but THIS SHIT WORKS. wash it down with a bit of OJ.
    4) before bed, take 1 night cold medicine (i just ate whatever i had in my cabinet which was advil cold/flu) and then go straight to bed. run a humidifier while you sleep.

    i woke up the this morning feeling awesome and no scratchy/sore throat and no dragon breath!

    2. You just became my best friend.
    4. It’s our first year with the cats having a full size tree. There are no ornaments on it yet so…so far so good!
    6. I’m checking James Spann every 30 minutes for weather updates!
    7. Ew ew ew. Hate that crap. BUT I do need to be drinking it since there’s a handful of people at work sick this week.

    I love EmergenC. I’m a weirdo. I want to buy T25 but I have a billion DVDs already that I’m not doing.
