Wednesday Quirks [#3], wedding anniversary soon!

Hump day! Hurray. But I’m getting my booty workout in tomorrow, so I guess I’ll celebrate a day late.

Me right now- too much watermelon. source.

Just got finished grilling out and eating a delicious dinner of center cut pork chops, brussel sprouts, Kettle chips (Red Curry flavor), and oh-so-much watermelon. Jeremy has his pork chop grilling skills down to an art – I promise to get photos next time but completely devoured everything before I even thought about it. We were super hungry tonight. But what really got me was the watermelon. I grabbed a huge one for $3.99 at Fresh Market, along with the pork chops, and I think maybe I felt obligated to finish too much of it. haha. So now I’m sleepy with a watermelon belly.


 

Quirky/Weirdness Wednesday #3kiwi

  • I eat kiwis whole. Furry skin and all. According to the California Kiwifruit Commission, it’s completely safe to eat kiwi skin. unless you are allergic, of course. More fiber for me. ūüôā
  • I hate waking up & moving without ¬†a kick in the¬†butt with caffeine. It gets¬†a¬†bit¬†pathetic but I guess it’s how I’m wired…
  • Even weirder… I sleep better when I have caffeine. I recently cut caffeine for a month and had the WORST insomnia!
  • I have a nervous habit of picking at my cuticles on my thumbs.
  • In middle school and maybe some of high school, I had friends who called me “Buns”…. Because I was obsessed with nice buns.
  • ¬†I got married next to dolphins at Marineland in St. Augustine, Florida.¬†(Did I mention that¬†I’m obsessed with dolphins and the ocean already?). Since our anniversary is coming up on the 15th, I figured I’d get this one in here. ‚̧

Jeremy and I are still trying to figure out our 2 year anniversary plans, but I’m sure we’;; enjoy whatever we come up with. We’re usually pretty laid back about it. For now, my mind is on enjoying Erin’s wedding this weekend in North Carolina! I haven’t seen her in so long, but I’m super excited for her! Congrats to my blonde twin! ‚̧

Wednesday Quirks #2

crazydriversIt’s Wednesday and we are more than halfway done with the normal work¬†week! So I have my Wednesday workout and another weird list for you… Speaking of weird, we had a car go through the fence at our apartment complex today. I think there was a police chase involved, but I could be wrong. Regardless, the roads were wet and the fence and brick columns definitely stopped this guy… That’s car #2 in less that 12 months, in nearly the same spot (the last one was Thanksgiving morning really early, around 5 AM). It’s crazy how bad people can drive in this city,- the drivers are scary sometimes, even though I love Atlanta.. Anyways,¬†it’ll be a quick post tonight – workout first:

fsquatWednesday Workout – mostly lower body to build that booty for HUMP DAY!

  • 1 mile walk to the gym &¬†Kettlebell swing warm-up w/35 lb kettlebell
  • Barbell warm-up¬†followed by Front Squats – 95×10,105×8,115×8, 125×6, 135×5, 145×3, 145×3 then a quick every minute on the minute for 5 minutes with 135×3 followed by a cooldown with decreasing front squat weights.
  • Deadlift¬†135×6, 145×6, 145×5 (mostly to give the hamstrings some easy work)¬†followed by TRX single-leg lunges

My workout was followed by a steak burrito bowl from Moes (thanks to my husband) with all of the fixings, including guacamole ‚̧


 

So I figured I’d stick with my weird theme for Wednesday’s so far an give you another list of some of my weird tendencies/habits…errr… gifts. ūüôā

  • I talk to my plants, like when I water them… especially when I am home alone.
  • I’m blind in my right eye (my brain doesn’t like to use it) and constantly run into things on my right side.
  • Despite that, I am a¬†freakishly good shot with rubber bands.
  • The first time I saw the Count Censored video, I almost peed myself laughing. I have a terrible sense of humor. (warning: explicit language…)
  • Did I mention my obsession with dolphins before?phinsdraw

What “weirdnesses” do you have? (See, I made a new word!)
