With additional strength and muscle mass, you will become irresistible to the opposite sex, which will raise your risk of STDs, and cause you to lose sleep and productivity, due to the numerous additional opportunities for casual sexual activity.
You may also lose friends, who enjoyed having the “fat guy” or the “scrawny dork” around to make them look better by comparison.
Nice I’m in!!
Do you consider it a sign of some sort? Is it a message from some greater force that you need to consider a little further or perhaps delve into if you haven’t already?
I have instances where I hear sayings that at the time sound cute. But I disregard it. Then something interesting happens, it comes back in a different voice. Then I get curious about it. The third time it happens close after, I start to wonder if the “stars” are aligning someway trying to push me in a particular direction.
I’m by no means a religion pusher, nor am I on a quest for intense depth in life either. But what I do try to find is the valuable lessons life seems to want me to learn.
The lesson of the week is “Happy wife means a happy life”. I heard that from my CPA review class instructor. He and his wife seem like two very nice and real people. They have genuine issues in their lives, children included but overall they seem happy with each other. So does this lead to the timeless and classic discussion of “Who wears the pants in this house?”. After that quote, I’m going to say that the wife has a lot more say than many like to give credit for.
I’m of the opinion that i takes two to tango. In a family there are two parents *if you’re fortunate to have a household with a couple*. In a traditional family where there are two parents (traditional meaning a couple, this couple doesn’t need to be straight), that’s a team effort. It involves two individuals who made a conscious decision to compromise. Does it mean that it’s seamless and perfect? Can I get a HELL NO? sure you know that you may have differing opinions, but you made a promise to compromise. So perhaps in essence agreeing to things and learning to pick your battles does develop the opportunity to live a more thoughtful life. I’m not sure, but these are just some of my musings.
When I get married, I’ll gladly prove or disprove some of these hypotheses. =) Good night friends, hope you have a beautiful Friday leading to a fantastic weekend.

Just sayin’ ;-)
lol did I mention I have my first running related upper body chafing? it’s that fkking ipod! well I don’t hate my ipod anymore, it dried and is speaking to me so we’re friends again. but the armband and the arm pumping my friend insisted I do going uphill added to it. so now it looks like I was a victim of domestic abuse.
hammerandforge replied to your post: 10k after a one month hiatus of long distance running Unless you include heat training in your run training, don’t expect to not suffer on hot and humid race days
you’re preaching to the choir brotha! =)
okay I will never do that to myself again. HOLY SHIT that really sucked. Did I complete the 10k yes, did I do better than my best? No. Did I do worse than my absolute worst 10k time? Not at all, I only lagged my best by a minute or less from my best time, which wasn’t bad, but I was bitching and complaining the whole way. Maybe it was because I was running with a friend who promised to drag me when I couldn’t continue or maybe I wasn’t hydrated enough *not possible since I drink a few nalgene’s a day so well into the amount to be well hydrated*. No breakfast? yea that could have helped, but not much since it doesn’t matter. Took my medicine, but I needed to have been on it for over a week or two so its effect would be great. Slightly sleep deprived, not hungover even though I did drink the night before. but I think of all the horrible things I did before this run, the absolute worst was me not putting more effort into my running. Yes, I’ve been the prodigal child of running. That’s alright though. I need to train in the heat and humidity, both are my kryptonites. no doubt both those things ruin my life. I hate them sooooo much, OMG! But you have to keep your enemy closer, right folks?
This is what I’m looking at:
- 3 times a week, minimum of 2 miles straight
- carrying a source of hydration or running somewhere hydration is accessible.
- I’ve got to make sure it’s during a time I can run without being disturbed as well as having the enemies present or It won’t work. *maybe that’s me being a little extremist, but it’s worth a shot*.
I think these little things can work, I’ll have to just write it out, put it in my calendar and to do list and just MAKE IT HAPPEN!
on the benefits side, I feel sore all over, must mean that the run (coupled with my trainer’s wrath from the night before) made some kinda work on me.
Till the next time I blurb about my musings, Happy Sunday and enjoy the rest of your week!!
<3 your neighborhood Philosophette.

I’ll take it!! =)
haha we’ll see. I’m supporting in spirit :)
Men with prettier eyebrows than me. Seriously, I need to find out who some of these guys go to to get their eyebrows all prettily shaped and whatnot. But it’s distracting because sometimes they turn out like….
seriously, dude your barber is really not your friend as of this point in your life…or he found you were fooling around with his main squeeze… dude’s eyebrows are just wrong!
That’s my blurb for today. Men…it’s okay to shape them a little if they’re too bushy, or even if you wanna kill the unibrow for good measure, but please do not let what happened to this guy on TV happen to you.
This is your public service announcement from your own homegrown Philosophette.
Let me tell you guys, today was a hot ass day and yes, regardless of this fact I went in and gave it some energy. Then the magic that always happens at the Y, happened again…the generator went out and no air conditioning. Fortunately I figured something like this would happen and I went ahead and continued with the energy and my shirt and okay every article of clothing was drenched. but all I can say is I have a couple of days left in the week to finish making it count and I’M THROWING ALL MY CHIPS IN. I’M READY TO GO, AMPED TO GET IT IN!!! just sayin
This goes out to my trainer. She’s the bomb, she’s always there to hear me be a little sissy baby sometimes, and she’s got the GLOW!!!!
On a 31 year old body. Pictures to follow. I’ve been reading a lot of people posting that squats do help give you a super fab booty. well I am one to vouch about that. My non-boyfriend’s reaction to my butt one day validated the hard grueling squat sessions that never seem to end, but they never ever EVER get old either. All I can say is folks, embrace the squat, all it does is give you something sexier to show off and get kudos on from the world around you.
