I think I'm slowly going crazy

One, I'm catching up on Top Chef: Texas recaps. It's slow going because I thought I could get the recipes names off the website. NOPE. They don't put them all up. So Week 8 is here (and last night's will go up later this afternoon.)

Two, I have been talking myself out of buying the sexiest damn pair of boots I have ever laid eyes on (they are walking around-able, even!) because they are one thousand dollars. I do not need to buy myself $1000 boots, not with children that will (we hope) go to graduate school. BUT THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. It's like the boot fairy said, "Everything Laura likes, let's put in this one shoe." And then Mafalda swooped in and cursed it by making them so expensive. [/obscure reference] I'm married to a finance guy and we pay for everything in cash. Everything. No credit carried over from month to month. I'm going to NYC for a week, I want to spend my money on things there. *Cries* /First World Problems

Three, I had a fake argument in the shower earlier (doesn't everyone do that?) where I imagined being shitty to a woman that was rude to me yesterday.

Me: Hey, bitch, I bet I can do more push ups than you. Come on. *flexes*
Her: Ehn flehn fleurgh. (she was a whiny-type)
Me: Oh, and they have to be prison-style
Her: What's that?
Me: Naked and with a dick in your mouth.

That was when I started laughing and dropped the soap.

ION, I bought new lovely bras at Nordstrom's after getting refitted and have dropped down a strap size, but not cup size. THANK YOU, P90X for being the ONLY WORKOUT that doesn't make me lose my nice rack. *preens* 32DD, hells yeah LOL.

Dumpling soup time!

Those boots are pretty awesome. I really want a pair of knee boots, but every time I see a pair I love, they're way too expensive. That price tag would be enough to put me off so I wasn't dreaming about them all of the time.

Can I join the DD club? I too lost inches but not cup size. Sadly my rib cage prevents me from going any lower than 36, but I'm a bigger build so it all looks okay.

Prison style push-ups? I will never complain to my trainer about having to do the regular ones ever again. lol

Boots are on sale EVERYWHERE. I was shopping yesterday and saw tons for under $100 at all the big dept. stores, etc.

Yes! All are welcome! And hourglass shapes FOR THE WIN! Haha. (In your face, every magazine and actress that isn't like me.)

Oh, man, they're awesome. Stand - touch your toes and jump back to plank - do a push up - jump to your hands and stand. ONE.

:D (One of my workouts is something like 8 different kinds of push ups? I LOVE THEM. And pull ups, too!)

I had no idea those were called prison push ups! There's an Army workout that I do sometimes, which incorporate the same push ups, but they call them 8-point push ups.

Also I advocate the one-leg push ups. They are kind if insane, since they take away a good portion of your balance, and require you to rely more heavily on your core. Basically just rest the toe of one foot on the heel of the other and do two reps-- that counts as one.

I do those one-legged ones, too! But I make my hands turn in, with one high and the other low (beyond my shoulder, inside my shoulder) depending on which leg is stacked. I LOOOOOVE those, and love popping them off to the delight of my dog. IDK, she likes sniffing my ear. :D


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
