Slow Runnings

Hey there! How’s your Tuesday going so far? I’m dragging this morning. I stayed up too late because I was absolutely glued to all things Royal Wedding on TLC. Judging by Twitter conversations last night, I’m not the only one who’s counting down the hours until the Friday nuptials πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I’ll save that chatter until the end of the week (but feel free to tweet me about it πŸ˜‰ )

Professional Status

As some of you saw, Cory gave me my first golf lesson yesterday. Cory’s grown up playing golf, and I thought it would be a neat thing to try that would allow me to step outside my box.

I’m really bad at remembering to keep my knees bent and my butt out. It’s an extremely awkward stance, and when I looked at the older men around me, no one else resembled a confused duck quite like myself.

Cory did an excellent job as Coach. It’s not easy to teach someone like me a new trick because I get frustrated. Easily.

I completely missed the ballΒ several times, but to my own credit, I hit some really good ones too. If they got air, they qualified as PGA material πŸ˜‰

Workout and Breakfast

Now that I’m a pro golfer, I felt that a good weight lifting session was in order in this morning πŸ˜‰ I followed up my workout with a phenomenal cereal combo.

Cereal never gets old, friends. Never.

Tonight I’m starting a new volunteer experience, and it’s pretty unique. You’ll never guess what I’m doing. I’ll fill you guys in soon!

Let’s chat Okay, I lied about holding off on the Royal Wedding chatter:Β Have you been sucked in? What’s the last new thing you learned (sport, recipe, party trick..)?Β

    I’ve never tried playing golf.. I would like to just once, to see how it is. I think I’d rather drive the golf cart and drink some beer. πŸ™‚

  2. ahhah i thin kthe US is way more into the royal wedding than us in the UK! im excited though – got my invite in the mail today.. NAHT… but itll be cool to be around it here!
    anywho… golf and me.. bad history! lets just say a bloody nose and a black out was on the menu..

  3. oh andblack out as in i blacked out.. not the lights.. haha

  4. I have watched a couple of specials on TLC, but ‘m saving up for the big event Friday morning! I’ll be up and at ’em to watch it all!

  5. You’re right; cereal never gets old πŸ˜‰
    I’ve attempted golfing a few times. It was mostly against my will, and I was terrible. I mean…I can’t even mini-golf!
    And noop, no royal wedding for me.

  6. My boyfriend took me golfing once. Thank goodness he’s patient…I also missed the ball several times!

  7. I’ve been really sucked into peanut flour and I was never that much of a fan back when they sold it.

  8. Hey! I’m new to your blog but am loving your posts! I unfortunately have not been suckered into the Royal wedding. BUT I would say that Kate Middleton is someone I would look up to as a fitness-devoted woman. I read an article about her “diet and exercise” before the wedding and she did not go crazy on it! She is just eating healthy and trying to lift a little more weights! How awesome is that?! Someone who seems so far away (physically) and is a celeb isn’t stressing over their diet, rather just giving herself what her body wants!
    Also, have you ever tried Special K strawberry cereal with vanilla Silk? It is to die for! So simple, yet so good!

  9. I’m totally sucked in! As you know from the tweets πŸ™‚ I will be waking up at 5 am to watch it and I am wearing a tiara! Don’t judge.

  10. Glad your lesson went well! And I am totally getting sucked into all the Royal Wedding stuff…it’s everywhere! I think I’m going to wake up early on Friday to watch the festivities. πŸ™‚

  11. Trisha says:

    The only thing I like about golf is driving the cart…seriously. I don’t have the patience or the skill to actually golf!

  12. Michelle says:

    I have watched so many things about the wedding that it’s getting a little embarrassed. I mentioned to my team yesterday that I was going to be getting up early on Friday to watch, and there was a round of laughter. I don’t see what’s so funny about that πŸ™‚ Whatev, though, I can’t wait!!

  13. Since I work at a news station, I honestly cannot wait for all this wedding stuff to be over. I think it’s interesting how engrossed people are though.

  14. I havent seen anything on the wedding haha im so out of the loop I might have to dvr it though !

  15. Katy says:

    Im excited to hear about this volunteer oppurtunity! Im just on pins anneedles to see Kate’s dress!!

  16. Aw you look so cute at your golf lesson! I haven’t gotten sucked into the royal wedding, but I know I’ll be checking out the recaps once it’s over!

  17. Jenny says:

    I love your golfing picture you look so concentrated πŸ˜‰ My ass would be all over the place lol I’ve never golfed before unless mini golf on a cruise counts? πŸ˜›

  18. My sister thinks I’m crazy for wanting to wake up to watch the royal wedding, so I’m so glad to read I’m not the only one! I haven’t been able to watch all the TLC specials because I’ve been studying, but my last exam is on Thursday, so I will celebrate by waking up early to watch the royal wedding πŸ™‚ That’s a legit way to celebrate in my mind!

  19. My boyfriend bought me all the golf essentials last year for Valentin’es Day and we’ve only hit the range 3 times since then so let’s just say I haven’t been vigilant about learning, but I really want to! I’m excited about the Royal Wedding, Kate is such a great style icon, but I haven’t gotten too sucked in yet!

  20. I have never golfed, I’ll admit it!! I am NOT into the royal wedding stuff, just not my thing.

  21. Cereal really never does get old, does it? πŸ™‚

    Also, I completely resemble a confused duck when attempting to golf as well so no worries there. Sometimes I think Christopher is making stuff up when he coaches me “now stick your butt out a little more… okay, a little less bend in the knee… now stick your tongue out to the left…” πŸ˜›

  22. I love the driving range but I hate playing a real game of golf. To long and boring for me. I like to just hit the golf balls to see how far they go without having to worry about how strait they go.

    I can’t wait for the royal wedding. I’m not getting up at 3am but will tape it and have a royal Friday evening! (said with an English accent)

  23. cbrady3 says:

    I love golf! Don’t play nearly enough.
    And I haven’t been THAT into the royal wedding…I wish I could watch friday morning though!

  24. I don’t get all the hype about the wedding! I think it’s awesome for them, but I’m not obsessed with it like some people. Oh well, whatever floats your boat!

  25. I am UHHBSESSED with all things WIll and KATE. Can’t wait for all the wedding re-cap shows!

  26. I vowed I would not wake up early for the royal wedding and some of the news coverage is extreme but I know I won’t be able to turn it off come Friday!
