My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size


on November 7, 2015

Happy Friday!  I’m so glad it’s the weekend.  Two days with no commute into the city and not much planned other than kids’ hockey. I’m hoping I can get caught up on some sleep and maybe even have a nap at some point!

Tonight has been a Netflix night. We finally watched the season finale of season 3 of House of Cards.  I didn’t like this season as much as the previous two and it took us a while to get through it all, but we finally finished.  I think there is supposed to be a season 4.  Not sure when it comes back on, but I’m sure we will watch to see where they take it, since we’ve invested all the time watching these first 3 seasons.

After we finished House of Cards, we watched an episode of Lilyhammer.  This is Steven Van Zandt’s show about a New York mobster who goes into the witness protection program and moves to Lillehammer, Norway.  I heard of this show when it first started back in 2012.  He was on Q107 talking about it.  I had pretty much forgotten about it, but then a few weeks ago hubs saw it on Netflix and we thought we would give it a try.  It’s pretty good.  It’s like Sopranos meets Fargo. There have been 3 seasons, so we’ve got a few more episodes to catch up on.  Not sure we will ever get into a Lilyhammer binge, but an episode here and there should be fun.
lilyhammerI’m off to the gym early tomorrow morning – 8:30 class.  Not crazy about that since it is early, but Jacko has an 11am hockey game, so our usual 9:30 class is a bit too late.  Class tomorrow looks like a good one.  Bench press as the strength and then 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Burpee box jumps, dumbbell thrusters (ugh) and sit ups. Sounds tough, but at least it’s 10 to 1 and the reps get smaller each round.  So much better than 1-10 for sure!

Now I’m off to bed to rest up for that WOD!

Have you watched Lilyhammer?  What do you think?
