A Doozy

Oh man, was yesterday a doozy. It involved a two a day workout that crushed me, but I'm finally back in the saddle again, thank goodness. The newest release for body pump is INSANE, good but insane and I then got after it with Le Husband at the gym after work.

Then it was off to a fun, sister, DUCK dinner with our regular crew. I've been craving duck for the past few months and we finally got the dinner on the calendar. It was so fun catching up with our friends, who we've know for the past 22 years. We're all busy girls, but we were finally able to make dinner work. #delish #sogood #wanttogobacknow.

Dinner after the gym was late enough, but I didn't stop there. Once dinner was over it was off to the bar to meet friends for MNF. Normally I don't partake in drinking during games, but last night I needed some wine to take the edge off.

WOOF, that was a tough loss. A doozy of a loss, I might add. I don't know what happened to our team, but I do know that I didn't go in cocky, like other fans. Cowboys/Redskin games are always a toss up and last night we took our turn for the worst. While it sucks, we'll dust ourselves off and move on and hopefully get a win next week against the Cardinals.

I enjoyed the evening, despite the rude, vulgar comments from bandwagon skins fans. I do love the banter that comes along with being a Cowboys fan in DC [Jessie, our email chain last night was awesome], because usually it's all in fun and with fans that know their stuff. Last night, freaks came out though. People who hadn't posted all week about the game had statuses claiming they KNEW their team would win and celebrating the injury of Tony Romo. I don't care who you are, but if you rejoice seeing someone get hurt on an athletic field, your mama and daddy didn't raise you right.

I will still continue to rock my jersey with pride, just as I did at work yesterday. I'm a Cowboys fan, through and through and will stick with my team through the wins and the losses. We still have the overall series record of 64-45 agaisnt the Skins, so I'll take it with a smile.

#Blogtober's prompt is all about superstitions. I don't have many, but I do have a few. Most of them have to do with sports, either being a fan or actually playing the game. I only have a few real life superstitions.

Before any athletic event, I put my right shoe on first.

Breath in and out three times before start of game.

Close eyes at 'Rockets Red Glare' of national anthem.

Hands up in basketball for a free throw.

I don't step on grates or cracks on the sidewalks.

I throw salt over my shoulder when I spill it.

I make people take back bad things [death threats, sick jokes]. Literally, they have to say "I take it back".

I knock on wood.

ha! LOVE this! I definitely did not come in expecting that- I mean look at our track record but yes in my opinion we could lose every game and just beat Dallas and I'd be ok (ok let me stop..) good game for sure though- I wasn't breathing during some of those plays! (at least you can have caffeine today!)

Have a good one love!!!

for chinese new year or any special occasion (ie. birthdays etc), we get money in little red envelopes. i'm afraid to throw them away because i think bad fortune/luck will come my way so i have a crap ton of these red envelopes at home!

Jessica said...

It's always tough when your team loses (and especially when a player gets hurt). But good for you for keeping your head up and supporting your team no matter what - that's a true fan:)

We have so may superstitions in common! I can't step on cracks/have to knock on wood/put right shoe on first! Also, I'm sorry the Cowboys lost! I go to college in Virginia so I am surrounded by Redskins fans...I was hoping that they would lose last night so I wouldn't have to hear about how great they are today!!

Courtney B said...

I wish that Eric and I could work out together... sounds like the perfect date (I mean, Mia in the daycare in the other room? Hello?!) but he goes to a different gym.
Sorry your team lost!! But girl, you are rockin' that jersey ;)

Darcy said...

Sorry for your team's loss...but, you look damn hot in that jersey, girl...rock it! Also, I know it's just past 9am, but that glass of wine looks really good about now. haha

Erin LFF said...

Two-a-day?! GET IT GIRL!!! You look seriously amazing... even in Cowboys gear ;) And hey my thought on NFL is that they are still ALL professional players... anyone can win any week! Never know what's gonna happen!

Katie Elizabeth said...

I knock on wood, too ;) And such a bummer that your team lost but you are rocking that jersey! Looking good lady!

Julia said...

Wow, two-a-day with Body Pump, I'm impressed! I did two back to back T25 workouts one time and I both thought I was going to die AND felt incredible afterwards, quite the feeling!

Sorry your team lost! I know how much that sucks! But good for you for being a true fan!

Kenzie Smith said...

I love hearing about sports traditions. It is neat to see the lengths that some people go to in order to help their team win! My family does a few strange things ha ha.

Katelynn Sue said...

LOL I love your superstitions!!!

And WOW way to go with your work outs! Definitely inspiring :)

The game killed me. I kept thinking about you and wanting to text you. We still love da boys!

MakeMeUpMia said...

A doozy for sure haha! I knock on wood and MAKE people take back too!

Kristen said...

didnt watch the game, but sucks they lost. gosh people who go on and on about games like that annoy me, and you're right - if they are happy someone is injured then there is something wrong with them!

Carolyn said...

OMG. Me and grates do NOT get along. Jake thinks its funny to try to get me to walk on them. NOT FUNNY!

Emily said...

Jealous of your 2 a day workouts! i can barely fit 1 workout in. I love duck as well and finally had some over the weekend. So good!

Nadine Lynn said...

Two a day? Get it girl! That is insane!

Some games make me drink too, haha! I always have to have my status on facebook say "Roll Tide" during a game. And I knock on wood and make people take most threats back as well.

Tricia Coniglio said...

Your workout sounds amazing! And the duck looks pretty good. I have had it a couple times but wasn't really a fan. I just might try it again after seeing this post.

I don't step on cracks either and I thought I was totally weird for it. Glad I am not the only one!

Rachael A said...

Wow for your work outs and that duck dinner looks A-MAZ-ING
