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?

We don’t have snow falling but it is raining iquanas.

When I left to go for a run this morning it was 35 degrees but the windchill made it feel like 29.  I didn’t really feel like it was much cooler than the day before but the wind was blowing harder than yesterday so it was a bit nippy.

cold weather runningI rallied because I really wanted to run and I did.  Of course, I should have changed clothes or taken a break before walking the dogs because I did that immediately after running, and when your sweaty and then you’re body cools down, it’s cold A F.

Did you know that there are two full moons in January?  The first, the wolf moon, was on January 1st and the second is on January 31st.  When two moons occur in the same month, the second one is a blue moon.


What I didn’t realize is that they are both super moons.  Also, the blue moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse.  If you geek out over stuff like that like I do, you can read more about the supermoons here.

Because the temperatures in Florida have been so low some iguana’s have been falling out of the trees.  Anyone who’s lived here for any length of time has seen this before.

iguanaMost of the time, they are not dead.  Actually it’s rare to find a dead one.  Iquanas are cold blooded reptiles and when it gets below 50 degrees they become really slow and sluggish.  If it’s colder than that they can become immobile and that’s when some of them fall out of trees.

If you live in Florida and you see one, you shouldn’t touch it, (unless it’s in obvious peril like in the middle of the road or it falls in your pool).  It will become active again when the weather heats up.

There is this new app called HQ Trivia and good lord, I am addicted to it.  It’s sort of like Who wants to be a millionaire except if you answer all of the questions correctly you might win 10 or 11 bucks vs a million dollars.

Regardless of the tiny payout, it IS FUN.  Seriously, you need to play it.  It’s a series of 12 multiple choice questions so how hard can it be right?  (That’s my challenge to you so go play it!)

Have a fabulous weekend!

What are your plans?
