The Most NON-Dramatic Rose Ceremony Yet

For those of you who watch the Bachelorette, it wouldn’t be a finale without Chris Harrison busting out the line “It is the MOST dramatic rose ceremony yet”. It never is, it’s always staged, and I always want to throw the remote at my television and then hate myself for wasting 8 weeks of my life on junk.

The “Happy Couple” then parades their love on the after the rose ceremony show, and we all are supposed to believe they are so in love when really they haven’t talked to one another in 3 months and probably never will again after they part the studio.

Wow I sound completely jaded don’t I? Well this is reality TV. And yes I call it junk, but you better believe I will be tuning back in to watch Juan Pablo be the bachelor. You win this one Chris Harrison!

I actually really did like Des, and I thought she was too good for a show like that! She deserves a real romance, not a forced television one.

Speaking of TV, if anyone out there is watching Big Brother (besides G-Mama and Jenna) and watching Gina Marie rock that cone, please e-mail me so we can discuss. It has been making my life these past few days. Anyone trying to drink a can of Pepsi while wearing a dog cone is reality TV gold. Thank you CBS.

Now that my reality TV rants are over. Yesterday at work went really fast because I was in the OR the whole time. I looked so tired and I was probably the most quiet at work that I’ve ever been. I believe I said about 3 words my whole shift. When I’m tired I just shut down and do not speak.

When I got out of the OR I chugged a coffee and immediately felt so bloated after. I was running on empty so I needed something. It made me feel worse. I changed to my gym clothes and hit the pavement.

When I got to the gym I didn’t know if I would make it 20 minutes. My head was pounding, the bright OR lights all day did not help me either. I hit the stairmaster for 20 minutes and I PUSHED. Then did some minimal bicep work.

  • Bicep curls, 15 lb kettles, 10 alternating reps x 4 sets
  • Uppercut punches balancing on bosu ball, 15 lb kettles, 10 alternating reps x 4 sets
  • Bosu squats, 12 reps x 3 sets
  • Bicep push outs with resistance band, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Side bicep curls with resistance band, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Plate hammer curls, 25 lbs, 10 reps x 3 sets

It was a little pathetic, but at one point I actually sat down with my head in my hands. I walked for 10 more minutes on the treadmill and called it quits. I was there about an hour. Some days beast mode just doesn’t happen.

Tight tanks and bloat do not mix well...

When I came home I took a 45 minute nap and it definitely helped. I really need to get my act together and go into attack mode today because I kind of splurged last night and ate my weight in pita chips and other cabinet friendly foods while watching the Bachelorette. It was one of those “oh this looks good, oh this definitely doesn’t count” kind of moments. In reality, it counts, it adds up, and now I just have to burn it off!

In other words, I’m human and it happens. I don’t make it a habit though.

Oh and I definitely did not get around to that crock pot meal… by the time I got my life together it was already 11pm and my eye lids were closing. Maybe later…

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday and NOT a Terrible one, trying to be positive here!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
