Vomit tastes better than bubble bath

The other night my wife took my oldest daughter to a birthday party.  Afterward they returned with a few party favors, one of which was a Micky Mouse Coin Bank/Bubble Bath combo.  She was all excited about the coin bank and I didn’t know about the bubble bath in in until she brought it to me last night when her younger sister managed to get the top off and spill it in her bed room.

I took the bubble bath and poured the remaining liquid into a plastic water bottle and put it in the bathroom for later use.  Ally likes her bubble baths, as I’m sure most little girls her age do too.  Before I put the bottle in the bathroom, I made sure to tell my wife, that way she knew what it was.

Apparently, my mother-in-law who stays with us didn’t get the memo.  Since she doesn’t speak English and I don’t speed Spanish, we have some great conversations.  I can’t say I don’t like not being able to understand each other, in fact I know many who would love to have the same problem.  Sometimes, it’s not very convenient though.  Unknown to me, she thought the bottle of bubble bath was a bottle of fruit punch instead.  Last week, my wife’s uncle gave us a box of sugar free Hawaiian Punch packets that you mix into individual bottles.  Since it’s sugar free, we’d been letting the girls have some.

So, the M.I.L. takes the bottle of bubble bath from the bathroom and moves it from the bathroom and into the fridge.  The liquid is water melon scented and is a fruity red color.  I can understand how she mistook it for fruit punch, because I did the same thing tonight when I was getting ready for my workout.  As I was getting me some water, I spied the bottle of fruity red liquid and thought it would be mighty tasty.  I unscrewed the lid and took a big swig.. Only to find myself running to the kitchen sink and vomiting.  It was not an enjoyable experience and just thinking about and writing about it makes my body shiver with disgust.   It is a very difficult flavor to get out of your mouth and even now, about 3 hours later I’m still tasting it.

I can say with authority that vomit tastes better than bubble bath, no matter how enticing the scents are.

After I recovered my composure, I went out to my screen room where my weights are and completed my workout.  Today is day 11 of Stronglifts, workout A:  Squat @100 lbs., Bench Press @70 lbs., reverse curls x3 sets to fail and push-ups x3 sets to fail.

The weights are really starting to feel heavy and really make make me work up a sweat.  On the bench presses, I’ve really started noticing the strength difference in my left and right shoulders.  Last summer I injured my right shoulder causing an inflamed rotater cuff.  Since October of last year, I’ve tried to let my shoulder heal and have done hardly any physical activity.  The constant pain really put me into a depression and I totally quit working out and completely fell off my diet, putting back 20 of the 48 lbs. I lost last year.  Now I’m trying to play catch up.

On bench presses and over head presses, I struggle with my right shoulder more with the lifts.  I’m hoping that I’ll be able to build my strength up more and the last remaining pain will eventually go away with some strengthening.

No running, biking or walking tonight.  My treadmill doesn’t like me any more and it’s been storming like crazy today.  I hope to ride my bike tomorrow though.

Better late than never – Stronglifts

We got back from a trip early morning on the 2nd.  A short 2.5 hour nap later, I’m heading to work.  After work, I laid down to take a short nap before I worked out and ended up sleeping nearly 6 hours.  Yeah, I was tired!

We needed to get dog food and I got duped by my wife into a “quick” trip to Walmart that lasted an hour an a half..   So finally once I’m home I can finally start my much delayed workout.

I don’t really feel like making the graphs tonight, so just a copy and paste of my workout stats tonight.  Just Stronglifts and no cardio tonight.

Yeah, if your noticing I put on some weight on my trip.  All that eating out, but I’m sure most of it is from sodium.  It’s hard to eat low sodium when your eating out nearly every meal for a week.

Do people really fall for this crap?

I received this spam email the other day. Do people really fall for this?
