Dirty thirty, are you gettin paid?

Hey hey hey.  It’s freakin cold here.  No, I’m talking cold.  When we woke up this morning MacGyver went to look at the outside thermometer and I asked what it said and he said, ‘dirty thirty’.

its cold

I’ve been waiting to use this meme forever!

I ran anyway because that’s how I do.  I ran six miles and MacGyver was all worried that I would get sick or something because he saw on the news that a woman who ran and was generally quite healthy just died from the flu.  He needn’t have worried about that.  I was perfectly fine running in the cold weather until some bitch ran a stop sign and almost hit me!

Crazy driver

Fortunately, I saw her and stopped just a few inches from her speeding car.  She didn’t even notice me.  Stupid woman.

Anywho, once I got home I heard about a new app that actually syncs with your fitness tracker data and pays you to work out.  Really.

It’s called sweatcoin.  I did a little research and it seems like unless you pay for the app your limited on the amount of sweatcoins you can earn each day but the coins add up and you can use them to purchase fitness related items, like fitness classes, fitness clothes or additional trackers.

I’m going to download it this afternoon but I’d like to hear from any of you who have tried it.

Do you use Sweatcoin?

What do you think about it?

What if I could die without these pills, then what people?

A few months ago my doctor switched my thyroid medication from Levothyroxine to Nature Throid.  The changes that happened with my body after the switch were remarkable.  My blood pressure normalized, I didn’t feel the need to take afternoon naps and I felt more like myself than I had in years.

OH MY GOD! This is what normal feels like!

There was just one problem.  When I went to the pharmacy to have the medication filled they informed me that there had been a shortage and they could only partially fill my order.  They explained that this was normal with some medications and that by the time I needed more they should have them in stock.  I left the pharmacy with enough medication for the next 7 weeks.

I ran out of them over the weekend.

oh shit

OH SHIT!

I called the pharmacy that I originally went to and placed the order on their automated system and they said I could pick them up that afternoon.  So, late yesterday I went to pick up the order.  The pharmacist couldn’t find them so he went to the back for at least 10 minutes and then came back up front with nothing in his hands and I just knew.  They didn’t have them.  There is obviously still a shortage.

what the hell

Isn’t that just my luck.  I finally find a medication that is natural and that works for me and that doesn’t cause side effects and then just like that, it’s gone.  The pharmacist recommended that I call other local pharmacies to see if anyone has it in stock.

One day and about 300 phone calls later, I found 73 pills this morning.  At two pills a day, that should last me for almost 5 weeks.

better than nothing

Yes, I guess it is.

Of course based on my experience thus far, I’ll have to pick these up and then continue to make calls every day until I run out.  Otherwise, I will probably never find them again.  Stupid thyroid.  What the heck would I do if I needed these pills to live?  #Frustrating

Do you take any medications daily?  Why?

Thursday in the 727, a different kind of racing

No, the following pictures are not from an episode of Street Outlaws and no, MacGyver and I were not in the 405, AKA Oklahoma City.

showtime speedway

There was no Big Chief, no Farm Truck and no Azn.  There was a 72 Nova but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the Murder Nova.

72 Nova

Nope, MacGyver and I were at the Showtime Speedway.  In an effort to get him to finally get the 67 Pontiac back on the street, we headed down there for some motivation.  I think it worked too because he didn’t take his eyes off the track once.  It was test and tune night.

me and macgyver

Yep, he was watching a race and I busted him.

If you’ve never been to the races or a track of any sort, I highly recommend it.  It’s super exciting.  Last night there was a girl testing her snowmobile which she races, I kid you not. She got that thing up to 95 miles an hour on the 1/8 mile track.  Why she had a snowmobile in Florida I have no idea but the girl kicked ass.

I was quite surprised to see how accurate Street Outlaws actually is when I learned that they do in fact use computers on their cars!

tuningThe Showtime Speedway has a test and tune night each Wednesday and the actual races are on the weekend but some of the cars did race last night and some of them were super fast.

I don’t know how motivated MacGyver is but I really want to race.  And MacGyver says I can if we pull out the pontiac and make some adjustments to it.  The only caveat is that he says I’ll need to wear a helmet.  I’m not fond of helmets but considering the amount of times I’ve crashed my bike, it’s probably necessary.  (And not just for racing.)

They have a circle track too where some guys where practicing last night.  The cars get really close tot he fence and I got a bit nervous.  I mean they do make you sign a waiver when you go in.

I wonder what they make you sign when you race?  Hopefully I’ll find out soon…

Have you ever been to the races?  Fan or not?
