I went over to my cousin's friend's house today to work out. We had planned on Friday to workout on Monday again because tomorrow I have to stay for a meeting after work. Her friend has a real 45lb bar which was incredibly exciting to me since I just have that small 4lb bar for now until I win the lottery, buy a bigger house, and have my own home gym. We did our usual circuit of 16 exercises, but with less rest time in between. I was super tired by the end of it. It's so nice to have people who enjoy working out as much as I do. Sometimes I feel insane for being such an addict, but then I get around other addicts and I don't feel as nuts. They speak my language.

A very helpful workout partner.
Our workout for the day.
Then I came home, had a snack and showered. I finished my taxes, which feels really good. I'm also pretty much done with the part of the application that I need to be done with in order to turn it in. This is really, really exciting.
Post workout snack. Protein and fruit.
Tonight's dinner was "Paleo Shepard's Pie." I know there is a lot of controversy over the use of the term "Paleo," but for lack of a better word, that's what it's called. It used cauliflower instead of potatoes. It was absolutely delicious. I love mashed cauliflower, so I thought this was delicious.

Now I am secretly watching How I Met Your Mother on TV while it is airing because one of my very good friend's was an extra in this episode, so I have to watch it. The problem is that this is a show that the boy and I watch together, so I will have to watch it again with him. Then it's off to knitting and sleeping.
