Hello, Friday, my old friend… why yes, I did just sing that to Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”. I’m cultured like that.
So it’s Friday and if you’ve been hanging round these parts for a while you know what time it is: Tool Time! Just kidding, but 90′s TV show references are always fun. It’s time for A Few Things Friday.
1. Along with my rekindled romance with the gymski, I’ve also made a very conscious effort to eat a little cleaner. And by eat cleaner, I mean drink less wine. I know, it’s an awful, terrible thing to do to myself. But I know damn well that as soon as that cap pops off a bottle, it has a snowball’s chance in hell of making it to the next day. So instead, I’ve been making this delightful little cocktail, and surprisingly I’m satisfied after
just one or two.
It’s super simple: Unsweetened peach green tea, a splash of real cranberry juice and a shot of vodka (I used Cupcake brand, but you can use any clear liquor of your choice.)* Delicious and refreshing. Also it’s pink and pretty.
2. I get it. So for years I’ve read about/heard about the wonders of Body Pump. I kind of hated it because as a former punk-rocker/skater-chick, I am programmed to hate all things popular. But you guys… I kind of love it. I went to my first Body Pump class on Wednesday and I’m sold. I love strength training, especially when it leaves me sore in the best kind of way for a good two days. I like to feel like I got a great workout and this totally made me feel that way. Plus it went by super fast and involved ALL THE SQUATS. As much as I hate them during the process, I can’t deny the benefit of dropping it low. So yeah, I admit it. My name is Jessica and I like Body Pump.
3. My favorite show started last night. Yes, that’s right, I still watch Big Brother. It started innocently a few years ago, but once I realized it was on, like, 7 nights a week, I was hooked. Because let’s be honest, summer tv blows. Where is my Dexter? Where is my Curb Your Enthusiasm? WHERE IS MY GAME OF THRONES?? Ok, yes there’s True Blood, but it’s kind of sucking this season (no pun intended) except for the fact Alcide is all up in there, which is always a good time. So welcome back, Big Brother. I look forward to many nights spent judging people who voluntarily put themselves out there to be my subject of ridicule. Also, #teamWil.
Seriously, can we make it so he’s in every scene from now on? Kthanx.
Ok, that’s it for me. Have a great weekend friends!
