Following a 20-minute warm up on the elliptical this morning, I completed three rounds of the following circuit:
The circuit made my muscles burn and my heart rate escalate quickly, leaving me quite the sweaty mess!
Here are some links to videos or descriptions of the exercises that may be confusing:
Breakfast this morning was the usual egg sandwich served with a side of fresh strawberries.

Now let’s talk about kissin’!
Permission to Kiss
Last night Ryan didn’t get home until around 9 p.m. because he had plans to play golf with a coworker. This left me with a wide open evening.
Though I ended up sitting at my desk for longer than usual, at around 7:30 p.m., I plopped myself on the couch with Sadie and we watched horrifically fabulous girly television.
I find this show oddly entertaining and often agree with the advice matchmaker Patti gives to her clients. She’s blunt and abrasive (she would surely make me cry) but seems to genuinely want her clients to fall in love.
In the episode I watched last night, Patti was actually matched with two different men since she recently broke up with her boyfriend of seven years. On her first date, she was matched with a guy who, at the end of the date, asked her permission to kiss her.
I instantly cringed.
I laughed when Patti’s staff, upon reviewing the date, also cringed when the guy asked permission to give Patti a kiss.
While I can totally see why guys would think this is gentlemanly and sweet, and can understand why it might really appeal to some girls, it is so off-putting to me!
I guess I just prefer the guy to be gutsy and go in for the kill. I would hope he’d be able to read my signals properly and make his decision based off the things I say and my body language.
Questions of the Morning
- Do you think a guy asking a girl for permission to kiss her is really sweet or completely cringe-worthy?
- Any horrific kissing stories out there? Please entertain me. It’s Friday.
