I have been obsessed with finding free stuff online lately. I got some earrings from sneekpeeq.com. I had a free shipping code and your first purchase is free, so why the heck not???
(ZOMG, I painted my nails… it’s like a comet. It happens like once every 3 years.)
You don’t know what color you re going to get…
I’m glad mine were free because I kinda feel like I picked them out with the tickets I won playing ski ball at playworld… just sayin’.
What other free stuff do I have heading my way??
Well I got a 1 oz. container of Living Proof hair primer.
I wore it by itself and I liked it. It retails for $20 per 5 oz. tube. My “sample” was 1 oz. Whatevs. I like it. Maybe even enough to buy it…
I also am waiting on lipgloss and dark spot correcting primer from SmashBox.
And some ball point pens from uniball.
And I got a sample of Downy Unstoppables… what? Days are just better when you get stuff in the mail. It’s science.
I wish this wasn’t blurry:
Seems like a pretty legit napping spot.
My knee kindof sucks. I actually went to the pool at the Jones Center to kick underwater per the advice of a nice lady on facebook. I don’t know if it helped, but it certainly didn’t hurt. Then last night I went to CF and I was able to row, which was AMAZING! The most cardio I’ve done in a long time. I was also able to deadlift! I’m still not cleared to squat, so I am trying to wait that out. I did “flytraps” and my abs hurt today. I made a list of all the things I am still able to do despite my hip and my knee: (no squats, no high-impact)
- hand stand pushups
- bar muscle ups
- KB swings
- toes to bar/rings
- bench press
- GHD sit ups, flytraps, floor abs, etc.
- Ring dips
- rope climbs? maybe?
That’s a pretty decent list and it should keep me busy till HOA.
Despite the depression of having an injured knee, I’ve been in the kitchen (I generally don’t cook much when I am sad). I made up a recipe for fried plantain slices. You slice it, pan fry it in coconut oil, and then sprinkle a little salt and drizzle a little honey. It basically tastes like a funnel cake at that point.
Comfort food, anyone?
I was short on time, so I microwaved the potatoes. Worked out WAY better. I usually end up eating undercooked potatoes because I am too hungry to wait, lol. My mom actually suggested I use the microwave while I was on the phone complaining to her about how long it was going to take me to make the dinner I had planned. Why didn’t I think of that before?! Duh.
I also made cilantro nuggets, but I forgot to take a picture. Yes, I make the “staples” a lot. I can’t help it.
I’m not sure what to call this…
We’ll call it pumpkin explosion. I can’t believe I haven’t posted about this yet. I got it off of twitter. Angie Pye tweeted it to Camille Leblanc-Bazinet. If it’s good enough for them, pass it to meee!
- 1/2 can pumpkin
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 2 tbsp almond butter
Oh, and here is a super spiffy video from GORUCK:
I’m easy to spot in my care-bear colored rain jacket.
Yeah I’m doing jumping jacks on my crappy knee while Chris does them with my pack… one of many reasons I was able to hobble to the finish.
