Chicks with chainsaws, don’t google it.

I can run a chainsaw like a lady boss.  I know this because this morning yet another large limb fell in my yard and I cut that 30 foot tree limb up in about half and hour and stacked the logs.  Done.  That was the second huge limb that has fallen in only a month.

Thankfully it’s hurricane season in Florida so I’ll probably get to use my chainsaw a whole hell of a lot in the next few months.

great

I tried to find a cool image of a chick with a chainsaw but when I googled it I realized just how many weirdos live on the internet.  Some searches are better left unsearched.

Remember how I told y’all about red tide and how it’s been all over the waters of Venice lately?  Well, it’s also been in the Tampa Bay area and I’ve been reading everything I can about it and learning all sorts of things about bacteria in the Gulf.

This morning I saw this video.

The restaurant is located in Sarasota but the health department isn’t saying which restaurant it is.  I am allergic to shell fish so I don’t eat it anyway but I certainly wouldn’t be eating it now even if I could.  I feel like when red tide around I hear about more of these cases.  Maybe it’s coincidence but I don’t think so.  MacGyver says the oysters served in the restaurants here don’t actually come from here but I love a good conspiracy theory and I need to be right so I’m going with my theory.  Red tide.

I’m still running.  I took a day off on Monday and yesterday I had to walk a good portion of my third mile but I’m still running.  It’s still difficult to breath at times but hopefully come August 3rd we’ll get a little closer to an answer as to why.  That’s when I see the pulmonologist because you know, they rushed me in.

eye roll

It’s been very hard not to google anything but based on my previous search this morning for chicks with chainsaws it should get easier.

How is your week going?

What’s the weather like where you are?

Some things for Thursday

We love going fishing.  period.  It’s one of our favorite past times.  MacGyver is so good at fishing that he should be a captain and I’m not even kidding you.  He’s very patient and always willing to teach you what you need to do in order to catch certain fish and most importantly, he knows where to catch them.

The only issue that I have when we go fishing is that MacGyver can stay out there for days.  Even in a rain storm or ridiculously hot weather or after dark when you’re all tired because you’ve been out all day.  If the fish are biting, he ain’t leaving.

We don’t have to worry about that anymore.

cuddy cabin walk around boat

We got another boat.

This one has a cabin underneath and an actual toilet, which means I no longer have to use a bucket when I have to pee and we’re offshore.  Too much info?  Any how, I’m excited.  And also, I’ve convinced MacGyver that we don’t need 3 john boats now that we have two big boats so he’s going to sell two of them and I get half the yard back so, bonus.

Did you see the story about the homeless guy who found a lost race bib during the London Marathon and then he put it on and finished and grabbed a medal?  Well, he was just sentenced to jail for his crime.  Seriously.  You have to read the story.  You can click on the image to read the article in full.

CheatAlso yesterday I heard another story about a runner who was almost abducted.  Fortunately, she did everything right and she was able to get away and the entire thing was actually caught on video.

That is so scary.  I mean, this was in broad daylight!  What amazes me the most is how she managed to actually pull out her phone and snap a picture of his license plate as he sped away, which eventually led to his arrest.  If you can watch the entire video please do so.  The commentators make good points about staying safe when you’re out running as well.

That’s it for me.  Work is calling.

What steps do you take to make sure your safe when running alone?

Thursday, some things

Remember when I used to have a blog and wrote things on it like, a lot?  Yeah, I forgot too.

airhead

The truth is that I’m still working on this year long project and it’s so time consuming I barely have a moment to spare.  Oh, and also it has been raining for like a year, (actually 4 or 5 days) and the grass and weeds are taking over.  So yesterday we got a break in the rain and I spent the better part of the day weeding the mulch beds and trimming the massive overgrowth that is my lawn.

exhausting

Remember how I told you that MacGyver and I had been on the Keto Diet but we switched back to our regular Paleo diet?  Well, for some reason MacGyver has managed to stay in Ketosis even with eating a few more carbs and he has lost a whopping 9 pound WITHOUT working out.  I however, am working out an hour to an hour and a half every day, eating less than 1,500 calories a day with a carb count under 75 and somehow I managed to gain 2 pounds in the last 2 days!

This is an accurate representation of me this morning:

I cannot believe this shit

Here’s the plan.  There is no plan.  I’m gonna eat when I’m hungry, continue to work out and fuck it.

Did you see the news reports of the 30 year old who was evicted from his parents home?  This story was so great I wanted to posted it yesterday for WTF Wednesday but I didn’t have a chance.  So today, I am giving you the most awkward interview ever.  Oh, and also, this man will never in his life go on another date.

How is your week going?  Hopefully better than that guy!
