>Funky Friday

>So I don’t know if I’ll keep this up or not, but I’ve decided that Fridays will be my day to post whatever funky, random stuff is on my mind. I tend to be a little bit on the random side and I think getting all these random thoughts out of my head before the weekend will help me feel more organized, and maybe get some comments going on since so many different topics will be discussed.

Who out there wears Nike Tempo running shorts?

I’ve been thinking about getting a pair or two to try them out. I hate wearing workout shorts because I am not super skinny, so shorts always ride up on my thighs. However, I don’t want to pay more than $20 a pair, so if anyone finds some at a discount, please let me know!

Jillian Michaels’ 30-Day Shred is a great workout! I’ve only done it a couple times so far, but starting tomorrow, I am going to aim for doing it 4x/week. I’m going to be on Level 1 for a while. The sad fact of the matter is that after losing about 10 lbs. for the wedding, it bounced right back and I’m back to where I started.

Does anyone reading have thyroid issues? I’ve had to get retested every year since I was 19 for thyroid issues. I have a multinodualar goiter. I even had a biopsy done on it. That was scary. But I have yet to actually come up as having low TSH levels, I’m always on the border. My dad has Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, the most common thyroid disease, and my sister was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism as well. So I’m just kind of frustrated that my issue hasn’t gotten addressed after several years. I’m waiting for my most recent bloodwork to come back, and I’m actually hoping that I DO test at a level that will need medication. My sister says her energy level is so much better since getting on medication. Any advice or thoughts?

Whatever happened to manners? The lovely Daisy and I got into a Twitter discussion about this today. We both have had trouble with guests not RSVPing to our weddings, and I openly bitched a while back at the lack of gifts at our wedding. Teaching your children to RSVP, write thank-you notes, and give gifts is so very important! AngryJulie has even gone so far as giving Emily Post’s etiquette book as gifts. I think I’m just going to order a bunch in bulk and do the same!! I know the economy is bad, so if you can’t afford to attend a wedding or send a gift, at LEAST RSVP. //end rant.

I recently had soymilk for the first time, and I LOVE it. It was Silk Vanilla flavor. And it was good! My mom and I split a pack from Sam’s because I’m starting to think that I might be slightly lactose intolerant, and my dad definitely is. I don’t know that I could switch over completely, but it’s definitely a nice change. I think it would be great for coffee and hot chocolate. Anyone here a soymilk drinker?

To close, since this is my first Funky Friday post:

Some funky, weird, unique or just totally random things about me:

-I have one blue eye and one green eye.

-I like to alphabetize words in my head. For example: example = aeelmpx. I do this a LOT.

-I was the 4th person at my college to be on facebook back in 2004.

-I cannot dive into a pool or do a cartwheel. I hope to do both, someday!

-I am really, really nearsighted. I have worn glasses, and later contacts, since I was 7 years old.

Have a wonderful weekend and Roll Tide!

  1. >I don't have any of the Nike Tempo shorts but I have found super cute workout clothes at TJ Maxx and Marshalls etc. I've found a wonderful pair of adidas track shorts that are split somewhat on the sides and they don't ride up and I love them. And 30 Day Shred. Loved it. I was awful at keeping up with it but it really helped my stamina. The Beau and I have been doing P90 (the baby version of P90X) and it's wonderful! In the first 30 days I lost like 5 pounds and 2 or 3 inches. My biggest problem is eating well. That where I ruin it and fluctuate with my weight! 😦 Boo!Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! 🙂


  2. >I buy the cheapest shorts I can for working out. RSVPing is one of my pet peeves–believe me! As far as the thyroid just tell the doctor that you want the meds plain and simple. If you are on the border and it runs in your family AND you have symptoms then you deserve to be treated. Take care! xoxo


  3. >I am so with you on the RSVP issue. I have been debating blogging about it but unfortunately gave up the idea because then everyone from my real life would get uppity about it and I can't be bothered with it. My hubby and I had a fairly casual event (watching the Aussie Rules Football grand final at our house) on the weekend. It wasn't a massive deal (like a wedding or cocktail party etc)but we did need to cater for it. So many people had to be chased up the day before and some flaked out without telling us – despite having RSVPd, some lied about why they couldn't make it (when I can bet that their real reasons weren't even offensive but now I'm offended they lied), some people just plain didn't care. It's ridiculous. I think giving etiquette books is a FANTASTIC gift idea.


  4. >My thyroid levels are on the border too, and I just know that's what's wrong with me. I get retested in January, and like you, I'd like to freaking test high enough to get some medication to treat it… speaking of medicine, I was put on a headache med 2 months ago that has made me gain 20 pounds! Ugh… back to the C25K plan I go. I was wondering about the Tempo shorts as well. I have short, chunky legs and don't wear shorts because I can't handle them riding up.


  5. >Thanks for the kick in the pants. I was procrastinating going to do The Shred by doing some blog reading. Guess I better go now, huh?I can't cartwheel or dive either.. I never wanted to try it in front of anyone, so I never learned…


  6. >Burn the NIKE TEMPO SHORTS this fad should die. die die die. It makes girls look sloppy. So many girls at the University of Alabama only wear Nike Temp shorts everyday. They aren't running anywhere. They are in class. They wear Nike Temp shorts and oversized greek event shirts. They all look terrible.
