More BUTI shaking on the menu today, much to Phil’s delight. I think he secretly loves it. Either that or he loves the view. Whichever, I’m just happy he’s amused. I can’t even look at him during some of the moves or else I fall over laughing. Skills that one. 

What can I say that fasterphil didn’t already about our co-sweatfest? I mean, for one thing, I wouldn’t call certain BUTI moves ‘nut swingers’ for obvious reasons… 

And if I hadn’t already secured the ring, I think tonight’s dinner would’ve sealed the deal… Herb and onion turkey burgers topped with bacon guacamole, mashed nutmeg sweet potatoes, cumin carrots & lemon asparagus. It was perfection.

I Will Shame You on the Internet if...

imyellintinder:

The internet can bring out the worst in people. But dating via an app can really bring out the worst in people. From inappropriate photos to inappropriate exchanges there are certain internet sins that shouldn’t go unpunished.

And for that, I’d like to introduce: #ShameYouSaturday.

(Editor’s…

My friends don’t always date online…

But when they do, they blog about it.

Go follow this sassy firecracker for some hilarious Real Talk and Tinder (mis)adventures. You won’t be disappointed.

Once again I was the only person at bootcamp. Which means once again I was tortured and sweating profusely by the end. One-on-one personal training for bootcamp prices though? I can’t complain. Much.

I worked smarter, not harder, for dinner and bought a roasted chicken for Phil & I to demolish. We did well.

Also, while at yet another doctor appointment today, I noticed this little guy come out of the back room and mingle with patients in the waiting room. Awesome or podunk? I can’t decide.

I made Phil BUTI yoga today. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed that hard in my life. Surprised to say he had a few moves I’ve never seen before…

We lasted about about 23 minutes, but holy sweatfest, it was an intense 23 minutes.

I whipped up some cottage pie with sweet potato topping for dinner. I prefer this to the faux potatoes (aka cauliflower.)

Captain America date and now baseball couch surfing. Solid A+ day. (Well, you know, minus the whole painful biopsy fiasco this morning…)

"That’s a terrifying tray of scissors."

Sorry I cut that last post short. Cliffhanger! The oral surgeon walked in and interrupted me. Rude. 

I was having a lesion on my tongue biopsied this morning. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I’m kinda glad no one told me. Those shots to the tongue were the opposite of pleasant. I came up off that chair and it brought tears to my eyes. Holy ouch. It was over quickly enough. A snip here and there and a couple stitches later and I’m home waiting for the numbness to wear off so I can eat!

My face as it pondered “WHAT’S UNDER THE PAPER TOWEL?!?!”

I quickly learned it was a large needle and a scalpel. The former they stuck in my tongue about 5 times. All I can say is that those of you with tongue piercings ARE CRAZY. It actually brought tears to my eyes & I ain’t no wimp.

Chemo over!

traceydanine:

Wow what a wild ride! I went in for my chemo treatment on Friday and I was surprised to learn that I was finished! I thought I had 4 more but the nurse said that the 16 I had were sufficient! The nurse also told me that they were shocked at how well I did and that most people can’t tolerate the…

"I would like to apologize to my body for all of my mean remarks regarding my weight. Thank you body for fighting for my very life and keeping me healthy through all of the poison that was pumping through my veins. And thank you to my hair as it continues to grow and cover my scalp. I will never have a bad hair day again."

Perspective.

CONGRATS AGAIN, B!

Now to get you completely healthy!

The never ending quest for a back that doesn’t hurt continues! I’ve been doing EVERYTHING I know to do to protect my lower back before, during and after exercise, but it looks like the best course of action is rest. I’ll stick with stretching and foam rolling for the next few days and see if that helps.

Attempted Tone 95 again but wimped out quite a few times. I’m working on my core technique so I’ve been doing the moves slower to make sure I’m engaging my core and not popping my butt and aggravating my lower back. It’s effective but I burn less calories. I’d rather have better form for now.

And Hindu push-ups? Yikes. Bring on the scalding hot bath and icy hot!
