Monday Workout: 6 mile TM run.
I got up super, duper early this morning to fit my studying in before my 7 am lecture, because I knew that tonight I wanted to fit a workout in AND watch the Bears on MNF. With my boards in an another year, I’m being a lot stricter with myself when it comes to studying.
I wasn’t actually planning on running, but I was really in the mood for it, and the 6 miles literally flew by….let me tell you, having SIX miles FLY by on the treadmill is once in a blue moon phenomenon for me. Usually ONE mile on the treadmill is too much for me.
I wanted to throw in a few upper body strength training exercises after my run. I always try to do at least one strength exercises per workout and feel imbalanced if I’ve only worked my legs, but I had to make it home in time to catch the beginning of the Bears game. Debate? Nope. I am beyond sick of politics. The debate is not going to change my opinion, so…..GO BEARS!!
As a Kansas City girl, there are two questions I get asked a lot.
Number one: So which Kansas City are you from, the Kansas one or the Missouri one?
People always ask it as if it’s a really original, smart question to ask, but I get asked it all the time (I’m from a suburb on the Kansas side). It doesn’t bother me, I just think it’s funny how often I get asked that.
Number two: How can you be a Bears fan if you are a die hard Chiefs fan?
It’s quite simple: The Chiefs are AFC and the Bears are NFC. If they played each other….yes, I would cheer for the Chiefs. You can be a fan of more than one team, but you can only be a die hard fan of one team.
When I got home from the gym, I found our fridge well-stocked with lots of essentials:

Our set up for the Bear’s game:
Can you guess which one was mine? Yes, it was the one on the right, Devil Dancer, but before you go thinking I’m a wimpy beer drinker compared to Dean, let’s compare the alcohol content:
I don’t mess around ; ) But I can only drink up to one of these at a time. For the record, Dean and I drink often and love searching around for good, unique beer (and wine), but we don’t drink a lot at once.
After dinner and a beer, dessert was necessary, so I had a piece of confetti cake that Emily and four year old Donovan made and brought over yesterday:

I just LOVE this type of cake and would secretly be thrilled to have a sprinkle coated confetti cake as my wedding cake, although I’m not sure how wedding-like it would look, especially if I let a four year old made it. Haha, but dang would it taste good!! ; )
