My Life In Shambles

A lot of words I use at times don’t even make sense, but people know that these are words I say. Shambles is a word that I like to use a lot. If you’re having problems in your life that’s called shambles. If you failed at a test when you thought you got an A, yeah you guessed it… shambles.

This past Monday my life was in shambles. Minor shambles, but still shambles. I went to Indy Boot Camps with my sister like I do every Monday and Wednesday. This class is intense. Think Biggest Loser. We even use those huge ropes that they use in Biggest Loser which I hate, but it’s still a great feeling after class. Although this past Monday I did not experience that great feeling because I fell during one of our exercises.

I hate these.

We were doing an exercise where you jump up and over a bar. It was our last one to do and I accidentally tripped and fell over the bar. I’m a klutz anyway, so I figured this would just be like any other time. Instead I heard a pop in my ankle, and ever since then it has been hurting. Today around campus I wore a brace and have been icing it all day. It’s really puffy and basically making my left foot look huge. If you want to see what my sister and I have been doing and what I messed my ankle up on check out the video around the 17 second mark. Yes I’m a genius.

With my big puffy foot this is what I had to do today

935-1050: Class
1-215: Class
225 – 340: Class
6-740: Class
830- ?: Chapter

Instead of resting my ankle today I’m sure I stressed it more. Keep exercising people.


What Groupon Has Done To My Family

If you have read any of my blogs from last year, you may know that I like to make fun of my family… A LOT, mainly my mom. Although as my sister gets older she is starting to do similar things as my mom and now it’s becoming hilarious.

The latest fix for my mom and sister has been Groupon. Groupon is a website where deals for services, items, food, and pretty much anything you can think of are put on the website daily. Although Groupon is amazing and does have great deals that you should check out, my mom and sister are taking it to the extremes! During the summer, my mom surprised me with diamond earrings, and a dinner to a Japanese restaurant. My mom is not a big spender so when this happened I was a little weirded out. Next thing I know she bought a purse, headphones, and other random things. Her response to where she gets these things in her Japanese accent, “oh, groupon.”

My sister on the other hand has now dragged me into workouts that she bought off of Groupon. At first I was apprehensive, but now that I have been going to these classes I love it. We are both going to Indy Boot Camps. It’s kind of like the show The Biggest Loser. It’s nonstop workout for an hour and we go Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 615-715. I have Spanish from 6-740 on Thursdays so I can’t go but I try to make up at the HRC (Health and Rec Cetner). There will be a full blog on this later because basically it’s kicking me in the butt.

Now that my family seems to be obsessed with Groupon it has now become my addiction to check Groupon everyday, which is terrible because lately I have started this shopping addition. I’m sure my Dad is thrilled.

In case you missed seeing Blue 2 and Blue 3, here’s a video for the summertime of them eating some Watermelon.
