Four things

When I see things like this on other blogs... I can NEVER resist. Plus I'm so bad at writing lately (on the blog), that I think it counts.
Four Jobs I've Had:
1. Bin builder helper -my dad used to build grain bins. I helped. It's probably the most physical job I've ever had and will ever have.
2. Deli Worker at Sobeys -For FOUR DAMN YEARS while going to University
3. Sales Executive at a radio station -didn't work out. Sales is not for me.
4. Creative Writer for a few radio stations.

Four Places I've lived:
1. Saskatchewan (Plenty, MJ, Regina, Saskatoon)
2. Newfoundland (Glovertown)
3. Seoul Korea
4. Alberta (Whitecourt)
Movies I love:
1. Finding Neverland
2. Empire Records
3. Life as a House
4. Reality Bites

Four Favorite Foods:
1. Chocolate (when I allow myself to eat it)
2. Mushrooms
3. Cheese
4. Poutine (I've practically given up this one though)
Four Weird Things About Me:
1. I cry when I'm angry.
2. I love writing, but procrastinate from the thing I love
3. I'm completely unorganized, but somehow have my clothes organized by colour
4. I love being weird.
Four Favorite TV Shows:
1. Gilmore Girls (over)
2. Freaks and Geeks (only one season, and over)
3. How I Met Your Mother
4. Parenthood
Four Places I'd Rather Be:
That's it.

Change of pace... to exercise

I just started watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I never seem to catch it, and have been without cable since October (by choice). I'm catching up now, but had a thought today. Pinterest is always showing shows you can exercise through... like a drinking game but less fun. I found this for How I Met Your Mother... completely stolen by googling it.

How I Met Your Mother - Workout Game

Barney says ‘legendary’ or ‘suit up’
10 jumping jacks
Anyone says ‘awesome’
20 butt kicks
Someone high-fives
5 burpees
There is a flashback
20 russian twists
Old Ted says ‘kids’
10 squats
Lily makes a sad face
10 lunges
Robin talks about her job
15 crunches
Anyone drinks a beer
5 pushups
Marshall talks in a funny voice or sings
15 crunches
Barney talks to a girl at the bar
5 pushups
Anyone mentions sex
15 crunches
Robin mentions Canada
10 squats
Lily tells a secret or mentions her kids
10 lunges
Someone gets punched or slapped
10 jumping jacks
Anyone calls themself Ted’s best friend
20 butt kicks
Ranjit makes an appearance
5 burpees
Old Ted says ‘how I met your mother’
20 russian twists
Plank during opening and closing theme song

We'll see how it works out. I'm working on weight loss/getting in shape for a trip to Mexico, so this seems like a good solution. (other than the actual exercising and eating healthy I'll also need to do).
