It’s Thursday as I write this, but chances are most people will read this on Friday. Just pretend — and then the weekend will be here before you know it!
Yay women! Although equality between men and women are not 100% — the equality we have in the US is 99% better than many countries in the world. It’s inspiring to read stories about women fighting for their rights and it makes me realize how much I take for granted. Hell, just watching Mad Men makes me realize how much I take for granted. To the women before and the ones who are still fighting – THANK YOU.
2. Did you read the story about dumbass who won 1 million dollars in some Michigan lottery program and then decided she was still ”struggling” so it was OK for her collect $200 a month in food assistance? Did anyone TELL you to buy a new car and a new house?? I was SO infuriated!! Not only did she do NOTHING to earn the million dollars — but then she was scamming the govt?? What is wrong with people? Why did she feel SO ENTITLED?
Apparently the state of Michigan has, rightly, stopped assistance. I hope they sue her ass or at the very least make her pay it back. I understand that it wasn’t against the law (she was unemployed) — but COME ON. When there are people legitimately living WAAAAY below the poverty line (IN DETROIT of all places) what makes you think it’s OK to take assistance?
3. I did this workout tonight and my arms want you know that you should do it too. I used 8lb, 10lb, and 15lb weights and did 3 rounds of 12 with a minute of jumping jacks between each circuit. It took about 25 minutes and I was on FIRE a the end.
As you can see I have been avoiding running. My body has been craving sleep and I’ve been giving in. Then today I woke up with a random sinus headache (still have it). I’m neti potting like a fool, drinking copious amounts of grapefruit juice, and taking vitamins hoping to avoid a cold. PLEASE let me enjoy Sunday’s race!! PLEASE.
3TT Random question: What would you do with a million dollars?? I WOULD INVEST. Why don’t more people do this????
