Pretzels and The Leftovers.

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!  I hope your day is going swimmingly.

Breakfast + Workout

Today started with a big breakfast-the usual oats, followed by a solid workout with Maeghan.  After meeting at our normal spot, we jogged two miles to the gym, where we each did our respective workouts.  I completed a shoulder and back workout that is going to leave me sore tomorrow, I can already feel it.Cecily Tynan Shoulder and BackI am calling this workout “The Cecily Tynan Shoulder and Back Smoker” because who doesn’t want shoulders like Cecily Tynan?!  If you’re not from the Philadelphia area, disregard that completely…or Google.

Pretzels & The Leftovers

Last night, Russ and I had plans to veg out on the couch and catch up with our TV shows (more like show), which is HBO’s show, The Leftovers.  Before TV time, though, we made pretzels with my dad.  The pretzels actually came from a can, which we bought at Aldi while shopping there a few weeks ago, and required a lot less work than the last time we made pretzels (which came from a box, so really not much work at all).  All we need to do was open the can…

And voila!  Pretzels that tasted like biscuits, but were light a fluffy.

We ate the pretzels while watching The Leftovers.  Has anyone else ever seen this show?  It is honestly one of the weirdest shows that I have ever seen.  There are so many important characters and SO MANY story lines that it’s truly hard to keep up, but Russ and I have been sucked in.  We’ve heard rumors that the show will not be continuing after this season, and since we are on episode 8 of a 10 show season, I have a feeling we are going to be left disappointed with a lot of unanswered questions.  We will just have to make more pretzels to soak up our tears…

Off to shower, pack lunch for work, head to the bank, and go to work!

Catch ya later!
