Ok, we have a winner, but first I will make you sit through a regular old blog post!

The agenda I posted this morning:

Coffee in my new skull mug, newspaper–DONE

Quick business meeting at Starbucks–DONE

First coat of paint on the generic wall–DONE


Second coat of paint on the generic wall—NOT DONE, WILL DO TOMORROW

Post winner of the Blogiversary contest—SEE BELOW!

Pork chops with honey garlic glaze and baked potato dinner (white for hubs, sweet for me)—SOON

I hit the gym hard this afternoon.  I knew I wanted to ramp up the workout without resorting to running which is my old standby for torching calories.  I get bored pretty easily, so I decided to do a “gym triathlon” or 3 different activities to break it up.

30 minutes on the Precor cross trainer

30 minutes on the stepmill

30 minutes on the treadmill


1 hour and 38 minutes

879 calories

147 average HR

174 high HR

YEAH!! I managed to not get bored and burned major calories!


I drew a random name out of a hat for the winner of the blogiversary contest:  JACKIE wins

She commented on her wiener dog dressed as a hot dog for Halloween…hilarious!  Jackie please email me your info and I will ship out the prize pack.  Thanks to all who entered the blogiversary contest, I hope to do another giveaway soon.

I’m off to shower and put this house back together before I cook dinner.  Painting means everything is moved around and messy…making me anxious! See below the first coat, and the crap piled everywhere!

    Congrats to Jackie; that’s a fun costume for her dog! If she hasn’t seen it yet, she should check out the Dav Pilkey kids’ book, “The Hallo-weiner.” It’s appealing for us gr’ups, too.

    Love the new paint! We are overdue for new paint in our house.
