Tuesday Tidbits

My mind is one big bowl of creamy mush.

I have a million and four things going on right now, and I am furiously trying to organize my life. There are some BIG changes about to sweep through the Ruby Household - details soon to follow. I'm simply trying to decide how much information to share in the blogosphere. And no, there's no Baby Ruby (at least for now).

So for now, you get tidbits of my chaotic mind.

  • I seriously hate going to the gym in the winter. Just because it's cold outside does NOT mean gym-goers want to be warm and cozy inside. Why, oh why do they think it is okay to blast the heat to at least 85 degrees? Seriously, I start sweating before even getting on the treadmill, and once I'm in about .2 miles, I nearly pass out.

No bueno.

  • 2% milk + water = disgusting watery milk. Duh, right? Well, I unfortunately learned this the hard way. The other day, we ran out of skim milk (which is all I drink), and I was really in the mood for some cereal. I rummaged through the fridge and found leftover 2% milk from Thanksgiving. So, I decided that all I had to do was add water to create skim milk.

Again, no bueno.

  • My body is not ready for bridesmaid dress shopping. And that's exactly what this body has to do this evening. Although I am excited to have a girls' night, I am not looking forward to the measurement du jour. Like I said yesterday, holiday chubbies have officially settled in for the winter.
  • Yes, that is a rotisserie chicken. Take a good look at the picture below. Yep. That is a rotisserie chicken in my husband's gym bag. I was walking downstairs on Sunday, when I had to do a double take. When I asked my hubs about it, he matter-of-factly stated that the chicken was going to be his lunch after a nice, long run. He was running to a friend's house where the gym bag and chicken would be waiting thanks to moi. (Even Sienna was confused).

You are brave with trying to make your own skim milk! Brave!!

I also am not ready for bridemaid dress shopping, but I don't have to go tonight... wedding is in August and I am MOH.

I am super curious with your news!! Spill soon ok!?

The milk is totally something I would try too!

what is it with the gym blasting heat?!? There was a vent by the treadmill that I was running on the other day and I thought I was going to have a heat stroke!

I found your gym comment very funny lol Cept for me it's the opposite! Here in AZ, it's warm outside and I think they crank the AC even in the winter months and it's just super chilly inside our gym!

I'm going on a tropical vacation in March and I have got to get the holiday chubbies off me!

The chicken in the gym bag is too funny!

Lauren said...

can't wait to see you in less than a month!!!!

Leigh said...

Haha that is so random about the chicken in your husband's gym bag! At least it gave you a laugh for the day :)

I find it hard to even get the motivation to go to the gym in the winter. It's not fun to go back outside to get there when it's -20C!

I'm excited for your big changes coming up soon. ;)

And I totally agree with you on the gym thing. I saw spots in front of my eyes on the treadmill the other day. I'd only been there 5 min, so it looked like I was just a wimp! I blame the heat. :)
