A Better Day?

So…yesterday did not exactly go as planned. I stayed home sick, didn’t get to train anyone. It wasn’t ideal. I did however get my TRX in the mail so I am hoping today, and the days to come are much better.

There is one thing I am looking forward to today… I don’t know if you guys love it, hate it, or watch it, but Jerry Seinfield’s latest show The Marriage Ref is actually pretty darn funny. Not only is that on tonight, but my hero Kathy Griffin is going to be on it. I know, I know, probably a strange person to label as my hero…Why would I pick her as a hero? Well probably because she is the complete opposite of me. She has the balls I will never have.  I guess that still doesn’t really fall into the hero category but when you are a person like me that can barely get a normal word out of their mouth in public…seeing someone speak their mind with no regrets or thoughts of holding back is nearly magical. How does she do it?

I am semi-proud of myself though because for the first time in my college career ( which for me is a really freakin long time ) I voluntarily answered a question. Yep, I full on elementary style raised my hand and everything. So there I sat raising my hand that seemed to go up uncontrollably. A part of me was fed up with knowing the answer to things and not having the confidence to answer them….and what do you know I answered the question no one else knew correctly.

In case you were wondering the question was where does Carrageenan come from? ( it is a thickner found in most soymilks ) Well folks I will answer it again, it comes from seaweed…just in case you were wanting to know. How did I know that? Well because Carrageenan jacks up my stomach worse than lactose…It’s natural but supposedly it is the equivalent to drinking wax. Yum.

Well I better get running. I slept in until 6:00 today. But I slept like a rock. I think I needed it. Looking forward to Thursday night TV. What are ya’ll watchin tonight?


  1. I find the marriage ref to be quite awkward and pointless..I have a feeling it's not going to last long.

    I have heard of a few people who get upset tummies from carageenan! For me it's gluten.

  2. Feel better! I hate getting sick smack dab in the middle of the week. Please tell me that you didn't elaborate on how you knew the answer to your question in class. Although nothing breaks the ice like a little TMI :)

  3. Watching the same thing as you, but Kathy Griffin is not my hero. She's just funny.
