I had my third boot camp class tonight! Tonight’s class was actually pretty killer, and I thought I may die several times. It was such a good workout, and definitely one I would never complete on my own. The instructor was hardcore. I will be sad when my TeamBuy coupon is all used up, because the class on its own is pretty expensive, and with a gym membership as well, it’s not really in my workout budget. Ho hum.
Oh and I made sure I was stocked up on hair elastics so I didn’t have a repeat situation of my first time…
Here’s hoping to no kinky necks!
In Other News…
Looky looky who I found!
R.L. freakin’ Stine. On Twitter.
Anybody remember this guy? Let me help you out.
I definitely grew up in the thick of the R.L. Stine phase and was a HUGE fan. I was a bit too old for Goosebumps when they started coming out, so I didn’t really get very into them, but you can bet I read every Fear Street book! On the books front, R.L. Stine was a major player for me once I graduated from reading Babysitter’s Club (that is a story for another post) and before I moved on to Christopher Pike books.
Fear Street will always hold a special place in my heart. I still have all the books, on a shelf in our extra bedroom.
My brother Eric was actually reading some of them recently while he was visiting. I was excited to introduce a new generation to the greatness of the Stine
I love that R.L. Stine is now accessible, because I had a burning question for him that has been bothering my Bestie Lisa and I for years.
Catsuits! The females in his books were always wearing catsuits! Who wears a catsuit?! Weird…
I guess in R.L. Stine’s defense, he doesn’t exactly look like the type of guy who would be very knowledgeable on tween fashion.
Besides the catsuit references, I especially loved the way every chapter would end with a HUGE climax, and then it would turn out to be pretty anticlimactic.
One of my faves…
“She picked up the phone and it EXPLODED in her hand!”
“It took her a moment to realize the phone was just ringing.”
And oh, she remembered the catsuits.
Word. I totally wanted to be those girls with the catsuits and the chokers and the hair scrunchies. Epitome of cool.
I managed to stay on the healthy bandwagon today, except for lunch.
My Office bestie came in with her little baby Hudson, so another coworker and I hit up the cafeteria across the street with her and her babes for some lunch action.
I was planning on just getting the salad bar…but then the pasta started calling my name, and I caved. It was alright. Not as creamy as I expected, but that was a good thing! And though Caesar salad is my least fave kind of salad, it was pretty good. And the company was fab also.
He’s getting so big already! So cute.
The rest of my meals today were pretty decent health-fests…
Toasted whole wheat waffles topped with peanut butter and banana, and a little bit of “pure” maple syrup for breakfast.
And for dinner…
Naan bread pizza! Ando wasn’t feeling the naan pizza, so this was a solo meal pour moi. I topped my naan with Prego pasta sauce, fresh spinach, mozzarella cheese and sliced green pepper and baked it for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
Delish. And any green pepper that did not make it onto the pizza quickly made its way into my belly before the pizza was even out of the oven. I just couldn’t wait to eat.
Time to wind down before bed. Catcha lata!
Questions of the evening
- Were you a Goosebumps gal, or did you have a Fear Street Fetish?
- What is your favourite R.L. Stine book?
I really liked the Fear Street Trilogy – First Horror/Second Horror/Third Horror, and Goodnight Kiss because it was about vampires. And the lifeguard one. So many.
- What is your favourite book from when you were a kid/tween?
Mine was Remember Me by Christopher Pike. LOVED that book. I have read it at least a billion times.
