Day of reckoning

I had a lot of things I needed to get done this weekend, but instead I embraced a True Blood marathon. I blame the bike trainer.

Saturday morning, after laboriously cleaning the upstairs portion of our condo (my portion … of which I’d really like to hire a maid for, but Mario, the only man on the face of this earth who seems to actually love cleaning, balks at the idea :() I put on my cycling shorts, stuck True Blood in the Blu Ray player, and started pedaling. When I finished, I hopped into the shower fully intending to get a move on with my errands of the day. But then, out of nowhere, the ass magnet in my couch, pulled me down and wouldn’t let me back up again. Five episodes of Season 2 later, I was dreaming vampires!


  • 11 a.m. BG before: 4.6 (4 sugar rockets)
  • Temp. basal: -100 per cent (1 hour)
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • 12 a.m. BG after: 4.9
  • Temp. basal: +50 per cent (1/2 hour)

I also watched another episode on Sunday, but only after baking a plum tart AND getting out of the house for a couple of hours with my pops and step sister. We went to the Eat Fraser Valley festival, which promotes local food and local restaurants and local foody businesses, etc., etc.. I wasn’t super keen on the food selections, it seemed like there was a lot of pork on the sampling menu, and I do NOT eat pork. (I don’t care what you say, ham is not pork!) They did, however, have a booth featuring Belgian chocolates. My step sister said as soon as I saw it my eyes lit up. Sample, yes please!

I was quite enamored with Watson’s old-time spice and baking containers.

Today is Day 5 of no knee pain and Day 22 of no running. I won’t lie, I have had some slight trepidations going into the Tiffany’s run on Oct. 16, which is like a month away. I know I have a great base, and I was only off all exercise for one week, which isn’t a huge deal, but you know, the what ifs do come to play now and again. Tomorrow, which I expect will be Day 6 of no knee pain, is also Day of Reckoning with Dear Physio. I think he’s going to have super good news for me ๐Ÿ˜€

What’s the longest TV watching marathon you’ve gone on?

  1. Oh, to hell with it. Why not just RUN into Tiffany’s and skip the marathon!!? ๐Ÿ™‚ Pearls for the Princess ๐Ÿ™‚
    The longest TV marathon I have ever enjoyed – I mean, endured ๐Ÿ™‚ was watching all three Lord of the Rings movies (extended versions) in a row … no “ass magnet” required ๐Ÿ™‚ But lotsa buttered popcorn and gallons o’ Coca-cola ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ass magnet!! Ahahahahhahaa. Um longest is 2 days. Weeds is my kryptonite. Nothing will stop me from watching. Thesis be damned! Med school will wait!
