Things to Think About

Ice Cream Without Borders

I think Depeche Mode sang it best :

“People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

So we’re different colors
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve never even met you so what could I have done

I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand”

Right now , in America, we are coming apart at the seams.  I don’t usually  get PC, but I just want to point this out – you , me, Bob down the street, the cashier at the store, every professional athlete, every politician, every man, woman , and child no matter what parts you were born with and choose to recognize –

UNDER OUR SKIN – WE ARE ALL EXACTLY THE SAME

Crazy = right? But seriously  think about it.  We all have organs, blood, veins, bones.  We are all the same, just wrapped in different packages.

If ice cream came in a box instead of a bowl or a cone- would you still eat it?

Damn right you would – who is gonna say no to ice cream? Its the same concept – same on the inside – different way of packaging it.  Ice Cream comes with nuts or without, chocolate or vanilla, sugar free or smooth and creamy. So many different varieties – it is awesome!!!  It is literally the beauty of ice cream.  What is your favorite flavor?  Mine is black raspberry or reverse chip ( chocolate ice cream with white chocolate chips, it is soo hard to find, if you do find it – do not deny yourself!!!)

I think we should look at the world as our ice cream social .  All these different varieties .  And you know what ? If you don’t like one flavor, try a different one , change your add ins or your topping.  Throw some whip cream on that shit and hope for a big enough spoon.

If we as a people could stop being so focused on what we hate about everyone and start focusing on what we love about people , just imagine how great things could be for everyone.

So , instead of looking at each other how we usually do – lets start envisioning which flavor we are instead.  If anything – its gonna put a smile on your face!

Daily Rants and Raves

This week

I am a bit behind in my posts this week , sorry about that . Hope everyone had a good Holiday no matter what you celebrate . On to of Christmas this week , I also had some personal stuff going on , so alas, just 1 workout this week . I was really pissed that I missed Thursdays workout . It had all my favorite elements . But let’s not focus on the negative . Due to how busy I was last week I had not been to class in over a week so I was really looking toward to Mondays workout .

Sweet Baby Jesus was it a freakin killer ! We were given 25 minutes to complete the workout . Here is how I did .
30 front squats 55 lbs
15 burpee pull-ups
15 wall balls
12 burpee pull-ups
12 wall balls
9 burpee pull-ups
9 wall balls
30 power cleans
My time was 22:10

I was ready to die at the end . I mean layer on the floor unable to move ready to die . But – I was so proud of myself for finishing under time . And I got in one hell of a workout . That felt mighty awesome !

But by far the most awesomest of awesome things to happen this week happened Christmas Eve . I stopped by Richardsons dairy in Middleton to pick up an ice cream pie for dessert on Christmas . I hadn’t been to Richardsons in a while . I use to go every Friday for “Frappe Friday ” . I would go and pick up frappes for the whole office , usually 8-12 . I had a list , I’d give it to the girl and we had a whole system down . Well , besides myself the office is kinda on a fitness kick . So , needless to say , it’s been a bit . So , I go in and who do I see ? My frappe girl ! And she greets me with ” Hey ! How are you ?!? Where have you been ? YOU LOOK AMAZING !!! ” yes ! The ice cream girl said I look amazing ! That was a Cloud Nine Moment ! And I am still floating .
