WTF Wednesday, migraines and Carol’s cookies

So I was absent yesterday. I mean I was still here just not on the internet or the blogernet or whatever. Not that I didn’t want to be, it’s just with a massive migraine, the computer didn’t seem all that appealing. If you’ve never had a migraine before, go suck it, I hate you. Kidding, but if you’ve never had one, this is a good representation.

migrainesSort of like hell fire in your head. Yeah, I know, it’s a real treat. Everyone should try it at least once.

Anyway, let’s catch up…

On Sunday night MacGyver and I geared up to watch the Walking Dead and I knew what was coming except that I thought Glenn was going to crawl down into the sewer.

(Spoiler alert ahead.)

I have to say, I didn’t think they’d be able to make that story line believable but they did. Annihilating the bodies around him and blocking the entrance under the dumpster and then hiding out under there was a perfect plan and it made sense so I was glad I didn’t have to hate on my favorite show.

But what the hell is up with Enid and why is she using those initials? There is no E in JSS. What the hell? And when did the guard tower become unstable? Was in always this way? They sure do have a lot of questions to answer in the upcoming last episode. The last episode? Doesn’t that seem too soon?

What will we all do while we wait?

I know what I’m going to do, I’m having some of Carol’s Cookies.

Carol's cookies
I hope someone buys me that shirt for Christmas.
I saw this article on the internet and it intrigued me…

yogurt for a smaller waistDo you think it’s because they poop more? Seriously? I’m just sayin’ because I know I have some, ahem, issues in that department and when I finally do have a successful, um evacuation, I’m pretty sure I can see the slight beginnings of a little 4 pack or maybe a 2 pack.

Have y’all seen that irritating woman on Jeopardy?  The one with the weird accent?  I think her name is Laura and as much as I want to look away, she won the internet for me this week.

State eight hundreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed, home, six hundreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed.

Now, I’m off to the store because it’s been 18 hours since Mom shopped and she’s going through withdrawal….the struggle is real y’all.

WTF, it must be Wednesday!

Tell me, dd the jeopardy lady break your internet too?  (I cannot stop playing the video, seriously!)

Cooler Temps make a difference…

I am in heaven, seriously. I woke up this morning to this:

I’m pretty sure this is the coldest day that we’ve had in almost a year and it did not disappoint. It was glorious.

Starting the day off with cooler temperatures was just the beginning of great things because my plank this morning for the #planksgiving challenge also went quite well.

Three and half minutes!  I know, right?  Crazy.

And then my run went very well. Seven miles this morning at a fairly easy pace, it felt nice and comfortable and I loved it. It was a nice change from the humidity and light rain of Sunday morning and the heat of Friday morning. I’ll take this weather any day.

Over the weekend I didn’t run much. In fact, I didn’t do much working out at all but if you count all the shopping I did with my mom, I probably ran the equivalent of 4 or 5 marathons. My mom, on the other hand probably ran a few ultras because she is the Dean Karnazes of shopping.

After doing some kind of shopping every single day for the last week, I needed a break. Mom kept going though because she never gets tired of it. With all that energy I was really excited to see how well she would do in the Turket Trot this year but both she and the kid have opted not to do it.

The kid doesn’t want to commit because he may go out the night before and therefore he doesn’t want to have to get up early and even though I offered to put coupons on the finish line and lots of Kohl’s cash and Macy’s rewards, mom said no.

And Mom has made it perfectly clear that she wants to do dinner early so that she can get ready for shopping after 6PM on Thanksgiving day. There is no shame in her game.

However, I am running the Turkey Trot and come hell or high water or a flash sale at Macy’s, I’ll be there.

Are you running on Thanksgiving day?
Will you be shopping on Thanksgiving day? How about black Friday?
