Random Wednesday: Deodorant, Oreos, and Food Porn

Holla!  It's Random Wednesday again!

Okay, I heart cousin Hannah for turning me on to using men's deodorant for my workouts. It makes such a huge difference for me. I tried the extra strength clinical deodorant for women, but that was expensive and truly made no difference. So this is awesome!

Well except that I smell like a man when I workout. I mean a sexy man, but still. I don't want to be that chick at the gym that my gym crushes say "She's hot, but she smells like a dude."

*****

Did you see the story about rats and oreos? A study was done that found that rats are as addicted to oreos as they are to cocaine. Well DUH! Who needed a rat to figure that out?  I have never done cocaine, but even I can tell you that.

I like to read. I LOVE to read. LOVE to read. Generally I am reading more than one book at a time, especially now that I have the kindle. I don't like to take my kindle to the gym or the pool so I read an actual real physical page-turning book for that and then I read my kindle the rest of the time.

The book-book that I am currently reading is about a caterer. I um...should have thought this through. It's like porn to a food addict. Butter. Give me more Butter!  Mmm Butter...

Good news!  Hottie Headband was at the gym last night. YEAH!  I can't remember the last time I saw him. He was on a treadmill when I walked in. HOT! I have never seen him on one before.

So here's the thing. Right now Distance night is Wednesdays. Ms. Liz had something on Tuesdays so I couldn't leave work early. But, that thing has ended. Now I can switch back to Tuesdays and hopefully see him more. But, now that's Biggest Loser Night. That's a lot of pressure to get showered and get home in time. I will have to think about it....I wonder how he feels about chicks that smell like dudes...

On Monday I walked in to work and found a box of Godiva chocolate in the kitchen area. It was TORTURE!  I had to walk past it every time I went to the ladies room...and you know I drink water all day...TORTURE.

On Tuesday it got moved to the kitchen counter.  Ms. Lety and I were at the sink and she wanted to take a peek and see if anyone had eaten any. She picked up that lid and only a few were gone. So we grabbed the brochure that tells you what flavors they are.

Confession: I had a white chocolate with raspberry jelly piece and a Dark Chocolate with coconut piece.

Ms. Liz this is for you: And that's why you Never lift the lid!

The construction "project" on 202 is now my formally declared arch enemy. Can you be enemies with a non-human? I declare that you can. I guess technically my enemy is whoever is in charge of this "project". It's making my commute a nightmare. It's bad enough with no hold ups, but if there is an accident forget it. You aren't going anywhere for hours.

So as I was sitting there going NOWHERE one day I looked over and observed many of the construction workers. I couldn't help but think that this "project" might go a little faster if they were in better shape.

*****

This Sunday is Empty Bowls. You know that's one of my favorite days. I am happy to help raise funds to help Philabundence feed the hungry in the Philadelphia area. I cannot wait to see what soups they have this year...and of course I am excited about the pottery bowls.

Last night I was on the mat at the gym facing the shoulder press. I was alternating push ups and crunches. Every time I sat up for crunches I saw this dude on the shoulder press machine digging for gold...in his NOSE! EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. And then he got up and left the machine without wiping it down.

And that's why you always wipe down the machine before you use it!

So this weekend we did a little shopping. We went to Kohl's and I found a jacket that I fell in love with. It's a white activewear jacket. They had 2 left and they were on sale. They were also both Larges.  I took one and a purple one in a medium to try on. The medium fit better, but the white still looked good.  Dang good!  I heart this jacket!  I rock it!

I'm also completely terrified to eat or drink in it...water only!


Have a Blessed Night.
