Beer Mug Speaker

Yesterday got away from me and I ended up not blogging.  Probably because our internet was out for about 4 hours in the morning and I forget how to function or what my name is when we have no internet service.

How am I suppose to start my day when I can’t check Facebook to see what everyone else is doing?

To catch you up with my, always exciting, life:

Tuesday started by taking the girls to the groomer, running 3 miles and eating an egg sandwich.

For lunch, we headed to our favorite place for Taco Tuesday and then walked at the park.

Dinner was brown rice noodles with meat sauce and broccoli.

We always listen to my iTunes playlist in the car and were both wanting some new music.  Justin had mentioned wanting Kenny Rogers, The Gambler and some Neil Diamond song.  While finding those to load on my iPhone, we were watching a show that was talking about Johnny Cash’s last album.

That really sent us down memory lane of music that our parents and grandparents listened to as we grew up.

We ended up loading albums by Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and Alabama.

Later in the evening, I headed downstairs and did some more cardio. I was going to do the spin bike for 30 minutes but OH-MY-FANNY! I couldn’t take it.  So I did the spin bike for 5 minutes, hopped on the elliptical for 20 minutes and then back on the spin bike for 5 minutes.

It really works!

I saw on Pinterest, or read in someone’s blog, about sticking your iPhone (or iPod) in a beer mug that has straight sides and it becomes a speaker.


It works!  I did that last night while cooking dinner.

Also Yesterday

I started the day by running four miles with a couple of walk breaks and then leashing the girls up for a 15 minute walk (we were pressed for time).

After getting everyone up and out of here for the day, I headed downstairs and lifted some weights.



Meal #1: Oats with chocolate protein powder


Meal #2: Peanut butter toast


Meal #3: Pork enchiladas from Ixtapa.  We met Justin’s Dad for lunch.  I only managed to eat one enchilada because of that peanut butter toast!


Meal #4: Chicken thighs, roasted broccoli, ice burg wedge with blue cheese dressing.


We ended our day by watching The Hunger Games.  I wasn’t real excited about seeing it, but it was pretty good.  Didn’t make me want to rush to my Nook and download it, but I’m sure I’ll watch the next one.

Time to lace up my running shoes! See you tomorrow!


  1. iphones have a facebook app! also, download flipbook and you can read your blogs on there. its nice when internet is down or you are bored somewhere.


    1. Oh, you are right, but I have such a routine. Computer and coffee and waking up just all go together.

  2. Interesting on the speaker factor. I'm going to have to try it. Thanks!
