The post about HIITing it hard, Frangelico and a BBQ...



  • It's #coffeetime and I need to get a move on. Lots to do this morning. Running, biking. I need to give myself a pedicure and get dolled up for my brother-in-laws birthday BBQ. And by dolled up I think I'll just throw on a dress. BBQ's mean lots of meat. Today's goal will be to eat all the protein and veggies and limit my wine to a glass. I also need to up my water intake. So I'll be downing the Perrier all afternoon. Perrier and lemon. My fave non-wine drink...





  • Best smile I got right now. My legs are toast. First I ran an ass dragging 6k. I was going to do my high intensity interval training workout during my run, but there were too many elderly people to stop and talk to. I stopped four times to talk because I can't just run by someone when they start talking to me. I came back home after my run and I ate some eggs and cherries. Then I hopped on my bike and rode up the escarpment. This is when I decided to do my HIIT workout. All I needed was my interval watch set at 1 min:30 sec and I did 9 reps of pedaling as fast as I could for a minute, then resting for 30 seconds. Man that was hard. Especially up hill. My legs still don't feel like they're part of my body. I really felt the burn. I'd like to go to bed but I've coffee to drink and toes to polish. Plus I'll need to make a few costume changes before I settle on an outfit for today...





  • Whoa! My first time ever drinking Frangelico with these girls. Hazelnut deliciousness. That's my sister in the middle and her sister. We're freaking hot. Just saying...
  • Wearing dresses in the summer is awesome as long as you don't sit in them. Sitting down is so fecken hot once exposed skin touches exposed skin. Sweat happens...





  • Lots of fun was had today. A BBQ at my sister's place for my BIL's birthday. Lots of food, lots of dogs, lots of drinks. I drank wine and Frangelico. I've never had Frangelico before. It was delicious. I had lots of water and lots of chicken breast. I also ate too much nuts. Story of my life. In other news, I got unfollowed today by a longtime follower. I always wonder why. One selfie too many? Perhaps. But that's nothing new. Selfies are part of getting used to my body post weight loss. Might not be easy for someone who hasn't spent their life morbidly obese to understand. No hard feelings.

  1. Does deleting your Twitter account count as unfollowing? I'm a lurker and rarely tweet but I kept having my account closed down for "suspicious" activity. It was easier to delete than to keep changing my password.

    1. Hey Caron. Deleting is different. And I don't blame you. I ask myself everyday why I'm on Pinterest...
