A Little of This and A Little of That

A Little of This and A Little of That

Hey there! I had another post planned for today but I decided I wanted to postpone it so we could just catch up. I hope that’s ok with you? Sometimes I feel like I drone on and on about this fitness thing, that wellness thing and it’s good to switch it up and chat about other interesting life facts! So here are a few random things on my mind lately!

1. Scandal, Grey’s and How to Get Away With Murder. To say that I was excited for these three shows to come back on for the new season last week is an understatement. I prepared the (non-alcoholic) wine and some yummy food and tucked in for a night of TV. I was not disappointed! Grey’s is kind of tough without Christina but I’m liking the new sibling thing. Scandal confused me at first. I thought I had missed something but basically the first episode was kind of catching you up on what was going on in the character’s lives recently. It definitely has promise for some twists and turns this year. Although (SPOILER ALERT!), it was kind of predictable that Olivia was going to come backโ€ฆ How to Get Away with Murder. Ok, I am so excited about this new show. I will ignore the fact that Criminal Law 101 and law school in general is absolutely nothing at all like it is depicted on the show (seriously, you don’t get to murder until the end of the semester and it is incredibly boring learning about the various degrees and punishments and you definitely don’t meet clients or attend trials). Instead I will focus on all the possibilities this show presented in one glorious hour long episode. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

2. Gone Girl. While we are on the entertainment subject, I am so excited for this movie! I loved the book and after finishing it I immediately downloaded Gillian Flynn’s two other novels: Sharp Objects and Dark Places. Her books are seriously disturbing but also have you on the edge of your seat the whole time, which I love. It is a major pet peeve of mine when books don’t catch my interest right away. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Anyway, I’m hoping the movie lives up to the hype and the book. I am even planning on going to the theater to see this one and as a general rule, I’m not a fan of movie theaters (I prefer On Demand at home!).

3. Deliveries. So maybe I just need to get my booty off the couch and into stores but I’m huge and walking up and down the subway stairs is really beginning to do me in, so I’ve been ordering a lot of things online. Well, for some reason, none of these items keep turning up and I’m having all sorts of problems with deliveries. I tried Instacart recently, which is an online grocery retailer. They basically have a person shop for you at your local store and then deliver your groceries. Sounds easy, right? Well, I selected an 8-9pm delivery last week and at about 8:45 I got a text message that said they were running late and to expect the delivery between 9-9:30pm. Ok, not ideal but I can live with this. At 10:10pm my groceries finally arrived. Mind you, this is a weeknight and the groceries contained my dinner ingredients! All I can say is Instacart had an irate, starving and exhausted pregnant woman on their hands to deal with. Oh and the delivery guy couldn’t even be bothered to bring the groceries up to my apartment. Luckily I have some really fantastic doormen who brought them up for me. Lesson learned!

4. Two workout things. First up, as Networkout Chairwoman of Levo League, I must tell you that I’m super excited to announce that THIS SATURDAY, October 4th, we are having an event at barre3 in the West Village. It is a brand new barre studio and it is completely free! It’s going to be amazing! Also, you may remember last year when I did the Athleta Fitness Biathlon? Well, they are hosting the second one in just a few short weeks! I would LOVE to participate again but someone (ahem) is holding me back, so I’m going to have to pass. If you can get tickets, you should! It’s so much fun!

5. Where did you go?  In the past few months I’ve noticed that bloggers I used to read on a regular basis will just all of a sudden stop blogging with no explanation.  It’s like they completely drop off the face of the earth!  I always wonder what happened to them.  Where did you go?  Are you coming back?  I get it, blogging is tough work and the returns aren’t huge.  Sometimes people lose interest or life gets in the way.  But I feel like you let me into your life almost everyday for months and now you are just gone!  

Readers, what’s on your mind lately? What have you been watching on TV? Any good book recommendations?

    i don’t watch any of those shows — i’m not huge into TV, but my faves are The Voice, the dancing talent shows, and Modern Fam. ohhh and Jeopardy (nerd alert). ๐Ÿ™‚ i haven’t read Gone Girl but wish i had, bc i’m afraid i’ll see the movie before i read the book, and that’s not the way i prefer to do it. have a great day, girl!

    I’m seeing Gone Girl tonight!!!!! I can’t wait I can’t wait I can’t wait! The book was so good ๐Ÿ™‚ also, I noticed that about some of my favorite bloggers too! Can I at least get a goodbye? haha. I need closure! Luckily I’m able to check them out on social media still so I’m not worried for their wellbeing or anything!

    I’m still here!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love the divination from fitness. I do that a lot it seems because there’s only so much fitness you can talk about, right? Unfortunately, I don’t watch any of those shows. I know, I know. But I DO watch Blacklist and it’s been so, so good!! And I can’t believe that about Instacart. I guess they won’t be getting another order from you! That would make me nuts!!
    Thanks for the link to the Athleta Biathlon info. I’ll have to check that out…
    Are you going to the Fitness Magazine Meet and Tweet on the 16th?? I hope so!!!

      I know you are so reliable! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have heard that The Blacklist is really good. I’ve seen commercials but haven’t watched it.

      I AM going! See you there! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This post really resonates with me–so much, so that I plopped my piles of paperwork down on my round coffee table, put on “On Demand” for How to Get Away with Murder and after that, Grey’s Anatomy. I dabbled in my paper work while I watched T.V.!! What a wonderful idea for a dreary day since I had already done some cardio!

    I really enjoy random posts here and there! I’m actually going to be writing one for tomorrow myself.

    I watched Grey’s for years and years but all of a sudden 1-2 seasons ago, I lost interest. My best friend keeps telling me I should catch up, but now I feel like I’m too far behind. One show I’m excited to see back is The Newsroom – was totally hooked on that last year! I also watch The Voice and The Biggest Loser — they’re both good background shows for when I’m doing other things like cleaning, photo editing, stretching, etc.

    I totally hear you on #5! It is a weird thing when bloggers drop off the face of the blogger earth after blogging every other day for years. I find myself wondering if they’re okay!

    • FitBritt

      I’ve never seen the Newsroom but I’ve heard really good things about it! Maybe I’ll get into it if I have time!

    And PS – On that last note, I would be SO SAD if you just stopped blogging. So don’t do it!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • FitBritt
      October 6, 2014

      I promise I will not! I would definitely let everyone know if I was going to stop or take a break (not that I’m planning that!).

  • Jessica @ Absurd, She Wrote

    The only show I was excited about was “The Mindy Project.” And I am anxiously awaiting for “Parks and Rec” to return.

    I am with you – if a book doesn’t get my interest within the first, oh, 3 pages, I’m out.

    • FitBritt
      October 6, 2014

      Oh I love Parks & Rec! I haven’t loved any of the new NBC comedies as much since The Office and 30 Rock finished airing and now Parks & Rec is almost over!

    YES for TGIT! I am so sad I will be out of town for the biathalon ๐Ÿ™ The subway stairs did me in a really early in pregnancy so I simply took the bus everywhere lol YESSS for Gone Girl I am so stoked and from what I hear it will stick closely to the book which is AWESOME!

    • FitBritt
      October 6, 2014

      Bummer! You’ll have to go next year if you can! It’s so fun. I’m not doing it this year but hopefully next year! Did you see Gone Girl yet? I wanted to go but didn’t make it this weekend!

  • Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious

    I’m still here too! I know exactly what you mean about people disappearing. You just get into their life and suddenly they’re gone. Blogging is weird like that sometimes. I guess everyone really does have a life outside of the world wide web. Crazy about your food delivery! I just had the same thing happen to me last week. FedEx lost the package and I was w/o food.

    • FitBritt
      October 4, 2014

      Agreed! I just always wonder why they don’t do a post that says I’m leaving, see ya! It does kind of make me worry! FedEx is usually really good!

    I haven’t read any of Gillian Flynn’s other books, but Gone Girl was seriously disturbing! I’ll have to pick up her other ones. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just finished season 2 of Scandal. Can’t wait for season 3 to come to France ! On my mind is my new job… I love it, I feel so lucky to have a job I love.

    • FitBritt

      It is pretty amazing that you like your job! I feel like most people don’t. You are very lucky! Scandal is the best!
