three things thursday

1. In the past week, there have been 2 creepy instances of scary men knocking repeatedly on my door - once at 1am.  The Alexandria police are probably getting tired of my house.  Look, people, I have a big scary dog who will LICK YOUR FACE OFF, so just watch out.

2. I COOKED EGGS!  I don't like eggs, but several times in the past few months, someone has purchased a dozen eggs with the idea of using 1 to make brownies, and there are 4 dozen eggs in my fridge.  So I decided the poet was getting eggs for dinner.  (Sorry about the bad cell phone pictures).
I made peppers and onions from leftovers.

He very convincingly pretended to like it, and I got 5 eggs out of my fridge.  Win!

3. I took 2 entire days off after the tri, mostly due to the traveling I was doing, and it felt great to get back in the gym yesterday.  I quit lifting for the week before the tri, and my muscles were happy to have that back.  I never thought I'd be the kind of person that enjoyed lifting this much.

I also got hit on in the gym FAR MORE times than is socially acceptable from one person in a 50-minute span of time.  This seems to be the bad thing about the weight room - I rarely see other women down there.  So, thanks, I know my back muscles are working.  No, I don't want to talk about my workout schedule with you.  No, I don't want to be your workout partner.  No, I DON'T WANT TO PLAY WITH YOU.  Sheesh.  I am not even close to the hottest person that wanders around in my gym, so go bother someone else.  Or maybe leave everyone alone and let us work out in peace.

Don't forget about my giveaway!  Ends Sunday night-ish.


  1. you cooked the shit out of those eggs...

  2. oooh yum. but you know i love eggs. i accidentally ate 12 eggs in 2 days. (i eat 2 hardboiled egg whites for lunch every day, and then i made egg salad for dinner...woops?)

    you might actually like a quiche (recipe posted somewhere on my blog). and you can add more yummy veggies, too. you did good on those eggs, no wonder the poet loves you. (ok other reasons, probs)

  3. I have to say, kudos to you for getting hit on, but I can see how it would get annoying while you're working out. I've never been hit on at the gym, but that could be because my wedding ring is automatic man repellant; but it could also be because I am definitely not one of those girls who gets dolled up to go to the gym. I am there to work and sweat, not to look pretty!

    One more kudos to you for getting back into your workout so soon after your tri. You go girl!

  4. Yikes, that's so scary about the late-night knocks! I would be spending the night at a friends, b/c I am a chicken. Kudos to you for being brave!

  5. 5 eggs is a lot of eggs for an omelet... we used to make similar concoctions back when I was in college and we got home from the bars... they'd always turn out brown so we'd call them bromlets and they were absolutely delicious (at least that's how I remember them).

  6. Omelets for dinner are AWESOME! You can throw whatever you want in there (thats what she said...ehh). And peppers are always a good egg partner :)

  7. Question for ya... do you lift heavy and do low reps, or light with more reps? And, how often do you lift? I'm trying to decide how to balance lifting (which I love) with running and biking...
