Despite having a snow day on Monday (our office was closed due to the extreme cold), this week seemed a little long, no? Well, we made it! Let's start this weekend off right:
Now that I binge-watched all of Scandal and Orange is the New Black over the holidays, I've moved on to... re-watching House of Cards. Season Two comes out on Valentines Day (SORRY BOYS LOL), and I just can't get enough of Kevin Spacey's ruthlessness or Robin Wright's ferocious wardrobe. I think I lived on Capitol Hill in another life, so this is my fix.
Jillian has been kicking my butt for almost a month. But not consistently because I had to take a break to eat lots of cookies when I was at home for Christmas. And while I notice differences in my strength, I haven't really be seeing physical changes (likely due to the aforementioned cookies...).
UNTIL NOW... I spy some teeny tiny baby guns! You win, JM, you win. I will continue to tolerate your abuse in the name of the gun show.
Yesterday I learned that the treadmill is my nemesis. I'm able to run 3 miles outside at a 10:00-10:15 pace without too much difficulty, yet I struggled to hold a 6.0 pace on the dreadmill for more than 5 minutes. WHY? It makes me worried for upcoming half marathon training because lawd knows I'll be doing running indoors if there's ice/snow on the sidewalks. Any tips for a treadmill rookie?
Anyone have any book recos? I finished the last book in the Divergent series and I haven't picked up another book since. This weather has me wanting to cozy up with a good book and hibernate for the next 3 months. But I'll settle for just the book part :)
My college roommate is coming to visit Chicago in two weeks! My other college roommate lives in Chicago, but the three of us haven't been reunited since [GASP] we graduated college! I absolutely cannot wait to show her Chicago and spend a weekend being a tourist in my own city. And the fact that her visit intersects with Restaurant Week is just icing on the chocolate cake.
|The last time we were all together on graduation day in 2011! Whoa.|
We'll definitely need a new one :)
Have any book recos or treadmill tips?
