Hey, remember that time the St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series?
That was pretty neat. We can talk about it again if you’d like…?
No? Well… ok… But can we at least talk about the bet I won with Kace when they played the Phillies for the NLCS title? Because my winnings came in the mail yesterday:
Please understand- I’ve heard ramblings of the amazing Tastykake from some of the east coast girls for QUITE some time now. So when I had a chance to try some out? Count me IN.
My head was buzzing with excitement. Or from inhaling the smell of sugary goodness. Either/or.I shared with my friend at work (I’m SO nice) and we both dug into the Peanut Buttery Kandy Kakes first (we each had our own package- none of that splitting business). Because great minds think alike. And peanut butter and chocolate rock.The “cake” part was spongy and light and the thin layer of peanut butter on top confirmed what I already knew in my heart…
Now the question is how long will they last? I offered to take some with me to St. Louis next week for the man friend. This will hopefully keep me from face planting in the tin they came in.
He gets me a massage… I bring him a tastykake. That’s fair, right?
If you say “no”, that just means you’ve never had a tastykake before.
Either way- a big thanks goes out to Kace. And the St. Louis Cardinals for winning. But mostly Kace.
Must be a week of new things (heeeeyyyy really awkward transition!). Or sorta new. Or “I haven’t done this in over a year” new.
I’m talking about yoga, people.
Yes, I dusted off the good ol’ Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown dvd (literally- it was in the back of my media table that my dusting routine never reaches). After the same mix of cardio and weights for quite some time, it seemed appropriate to throw something new into the mix.
Plus I was sore from also breaking out Jillian’s Shred workout earlier in the week and running/ellipticalling sounded a little daunting.
My thighs are now burning thanks to both The Shred and Meltdown. It’s also embarrassing how few chatarunga push ups actually happened.
To be honest, even when doing the yoga dvd regularly (once or twice a week), I couldn’t do those stupid push ups. Sooooo weak…
So that’s that- my meager attempt to make a few changes. Because I’m a big subscriber to the idea that “you can’t expect change when you’re not changing anything”. And let’s face it. I was in a rut. All cardio and the only action my weights were getting was when I was stubbing my toe on them as I walked by. Not cool.
So let’s do this, shall we? Happy Thursday!
