Favorite Things About This Friday

Happy Friday to anyone and everyone! 

I won't keep you here for long today because there's some awesome things going on. How about we list these awesome things in backwards chronological order!

1. THIS GUY arrives to PDX for a rainy weekend of snuggles and hopefully not as much work as we have on the horizon. Thankfully mom, dad and the golden sisters will break up some of that crunch time - plus I promised to make another round of my meatloaf


2. Shady kitty comes over and will be with me for an entire week - he's the blood brother of my former kitty that I lost in a cat-stody battle. 


3. My co-workers arranged a Friday night pub-crawl that requires a prompt exit from work at an hour well before I've usually been leaving this week. I don't plan to get too sloshy based on reasons #1 and #2 above. 

4. I have an Eye Doctor Appointment - which doesn't sound that cool, but it's pretty damn exciting when I'm down to only one spare set of contacts AND I have a pair of Firmoo glasses to redeem and review. These ones are cool, right? 

5. It's Friday and that means it's time for me to try to begin a routine where no matter what I hit the gym at 6am before work - this is because more often than I'd like to admit the sweat session gets skipped on Fridays for reasons like #3 above. 

Mom recommends this circuit that she did this week:

10, 8, 6, 4, 2 Reps of Jumping Pull Ups, Push Ups, Squats + 100M Row
2, 4, 6, 8, 10 Reps of Jumping Pull Ups, Push Ups, Squats + 100M Row

6. I cleaned my house last night (including laundry) because of all the reasons above - and my does that feel amazing! *Laundry also means folding clothes that have been "In the laundry" since my trip to Mexico in late August. oops.

Have a fun weekend. Also I like the frame you pick out. On a sidenot Firmoo glasses are awesome. I wear mine all the time. That say a lot when I have two other pair and one is PINK.

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Sounds like a great weekend ahead! Good luck not getting too sloshy on the bar crawl :)

Laundry is the worst - my washer broke last weekend - and I had to RUSH to get it fixed - because though I hate it - It's got to get done.

So - let's talk about this meatloaf of yours - so, you feel like mailing it overnight.. so I can try?

I've been doing a Rewired 9 week weight lifting program I found through bodybuilding.com - and I WAS on week 2 - but I got a cold, so I am going to call a Mulligan on the week and try again next week. **SIGHS**
