Weekend Update

Right?? After naming my post “weekend update” I couldn’t help but go scour the web for an awesome SNL gif.  Who doesn’t love Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon?  NOBODY, that’s who.

Anyhoo, I’ve been MIA for the last week or so and I though a catchup post was in order.

For starters, I spent most of the week in Atlanta with my family.  My Dad had a cardiac cath procedure where they stented 2 blockages in his arteries.  He has bad reactions to anesthesia and sedation so they didn’t give him anything.  Which means he laid completely still for 3 hours while they moved a wire around in his arteries, ballooned them open and placed stents.  He deserves a medal for that!  The procedure was successful though and he’s home now and recovering.  Yay!

How cute are my parents, btw?



Other than that, nothing super exciting has been going on.  Just a lot of little random things.  Shall we bullet point them?

  • I took Zzzquil last night.  It’s supposed to be NyQuil but without the cold medicine, just the stuff that helps you sleep.  Bull crap.  This is the second time I have tried this because I’ve been having a really hard time sleeping.  It will be the last time I EVER take it.  It knocks me out like I was roofied or something!  Not cool.  I don’t feel refreshed when I wake up.  I feel like I CAN’T wake up at all.  I don’t feel that way with NyQuil though.  Strange.  But seriously… be careful if you take it.  It could knock you on your ass.
  • I’ve been watching some health documentaries on Netflix lately, such as Hungry for Change and Forks Over Knives.  They are interesting.  I’ll probably do a post reviewing them in the next couple of weeks.
  • I’m having major doubts about my ability to successfully complete a half Ironman in August like I’ve been planning.  I have been working out 5 times a week for a few weeks now and I feel… completely out of shape still.  I don’t know.  I’m just wondering if I can really do it.  I’m not in very good shape and I have only 5 months til the race.  Maybe I’m just being pessimistic though.  Who knows.
  • At the same time I watched the Biggest Loser finale this week and was amazed at the transformation of winner Danni Allen.  Check out the picture below… is that not AMAZING?  In just 6 months she lost 121 lbs and gained 19 lbs of muscle.  Sadly, I’m looking a LOT like her before picture right now.  So why couldn’t I do it?  Maybe not in 6 months, but who knows.



And since I started this post with a gif I though I would end it with one too.

How CREEPY is this??



Try not to have nightmares about that later :)

Danni was my favorite…I’m so glad she won! Also on the cute scale, your parents rank around a nine thousand.

She was my favorite too! Such an athlete, winning all of those challenges. And thanks… I think my parents are adorable too :)
