When I walked inside of my apartment after work, it smelled like a potent fart. I figured that something in our kitchen garbage bin had spoiled, and I was right. This happens almost every time that Al makes chicken. He throws the raw scraps in the bin, and he forgets to take it outside. Then, it sits there for a day and gives off a ridiculously rank odor by the time we get home. I go straight to the bin, gag a few times as I tie the garbage bag up, take it outside, open up all the doors and windows and spray air freshener. Given time, the smell eventually goes away.
Was that a nice opener? Did you learn anything from that?
Moving on, I'll tell you all about taking off my no-chip manicure. If you are sick of hearing about it or just plain old don't care, then feel free to scroll down to the food stuff. Nobody is watching you.
Last night, it was time to kill the manicure for good. It was starting to look funny after four weeks. That's funny, because most people remove it after two weeks. Anyway, I used non-acetone polish remover to take off my regular coat and acetone remover to get off the no-chip polish.
I had to wrap every finger individually in Glad Wrap to hold the acetone-soaked cotton pad on my finger. It was a lot of work. I may or may not have spilled the remover all over my pants and the carpet....
Now, let's move away from nails and talk about my body. It is paying for Mt Lofty today. I have two shin splints, and my gluteus maximus is on fire with every step that I take! I decided to give my lower body a break today. After disposing of the fart-smelling garbage after work, I went grocery shopping with Al and then did a quick at-home upper body workout.
I did three sets of twelve repetitions of:
- military shoulder presses
- bicep curls
- triceps dips
- standing rows
- combination chest press/flies
French Onion Soup Baked Potato
One large potato (I got a bintje potato)
1 tablespoon vegetable stock
1 garlic clove
1 brown onion
Low fat cheese- use as much as you want
Non-fat Greek yogurt
I didn't use the garlic powder, so you can pretend it's not there.
