1. Has anyone ever tried this workout? I have been doing it at least four times a week for the last 3 weeks or so. Unfortunately, I've actually gained weight! I'm hoping that I'm just gaining lean muscle and that, in time, the pounds will melt away. I have to admit - it is way harder to stick with something when you don't see results! Anyway, I'd love an opinion on this workout. I haven't done a lot of home workouts before but this one feels pretty intense to me. Thoughts? Comments?
2. Do any of you have that office colleague who makes things, i.e. jewelry, candles, etc.? Maybe they have a little shop on etsy, maybe they throw parties to sell their wares. Well, there is a woman at my office who makes baby blankets. In trying to make friends at my new job I foolishly mentioned how much I would just love to see her stuff and possibly buy one for one of my many friends who have had babies lately. Well, today she brought them in and, while they are nice, they're just not my style. I felt really pressured to buy one. They're not expensive but I would never give one to a friend - they're just sooo not me. None of them could even come close to being monogrammed. I didn't know what to do so I picked the least offensive pattern and she told me I could pay her tomorrow. Here's my question - how can I possibly get out this? I don't want to waste money on it, but I also don't want to hurt her feelings. Again, they're nice - just totally not my style. Advice, please!
3. Did anyone catch The Real Housewives of New Jersey last night? I watched small bits of it this evening and I swear Teresa referred to Jacqueline as having dual personalities like Hekyll and Jyde. Admittedly, I wasn't paying close attention because I'm always slightly concerned about how much my I.Q. is dropping while watching. Someone please confirm.
