Triple Tangent Tuesday

Woke up this morning and did 45 minutes on the spin bike with zero tension while watching 'Chopped' on my ipad.

4 sets of 13 push-ups.  Ouch.

Why would I still wake up crazy early to go to the gym when I can't really do much?

-I LOVE being around other crazies that get out of their nice warm bed to get their sweat on.  Their endorphins are contagious

-I am a morning person and I learned early on in my marriage that Billy doesn't particularly enjoy me waking him up at 5:30 a.m. to see if he wants to hang out with me.

-I want to stay in the habit of getting up and working out in the morning, otherwise I fear that when my bones are whole again I will be out of routine and besides fighting to get back into cardiovascular shape I don't want to have to fight to get back into routine.

-I can still work my upper body like the professional body builder that I am.

Get ready for your favorite part about Tuesday....Triple Tanget where I share with you 3 completely random/awkward/creepy/a little off my rocker tangents with you to help you feel a little more normal.  You can read previous Triple Tangents HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

I do not want to say the exact date that this 459 ounce bottle of ketchup was purchased but I will tell you it was very recent and BIlly has used it twice.  I could dip practically anything into that crack and think it tastes delicious.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have been a clutz since I was just itty bitty.  I fell on the sidewalk (those cracks really jump out at you) and I broke my front teeth and had to get them removed.  Let's just say I didn't have front teeth for nine years.

Dang, I wish I still had that dress...... That lace would look so good on me now.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am a thumbs up kind of person.  I talk with my hands a lot and my students constantly make fun of me.  They challenge me to keep my hands to my side as I teach for at least 5 minutes but I can never do it because I get way into whatever I am talking about.  It probably makes them feel nautious to watch me run around the room flailing my arms and that is why their heads are on the desk half the time.

I love working out after work. I can vent all of my work frustrations into sweat.

I used to love mayo, then quit it cold turkey. Now it seems vile. I loooooove ranch dressing, though. Yumtastic.

I want to be a morning person, but I just can't. I try, though.

I usually work out in the evenings, but would prefer to fit it in before work. Fail!

My favorite condiment is Honey Mustard... I can eat That on anything. I used to dip my pizza crust in it.

I'm a total morning workout girl. The later in the day, I think it gets harder to go to the gym. And nothing feels better than knowing you have already sweat your guys out and then after school you can instead go lay in bed :)

You're so cute! And so smart for keeping your same schedule for working out! You're going to be so buff!
I love mayo. It's a problem. That and ranch dressing.
I'm a night owl which makes for not so early morning workouts.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 4:49 PM , Blogger Lisa J said...

I love your consistency for working out!
I'm a ranch girl! Gave up dairy for 2 months so my go to has been honey mustard or bbq
I generally take an hour lunch and run on my lunch break- great way to break up work.

I am a morning person as well. I love getting up and getting my move on. My husband...not so much.

What a positive post! I love it!!

I love mayo!!

I prefer afternoon workouts! I'm definitely not a morning person but not a night owl either. I like afternoon time.

Mayo = VOMIT

Love me some ranch dressing though.

Love AM workouts... Get it done, baby! I used to be a night owl, but I'm turning into a early bird. Such an old lady.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 4:55 PM , Blogger Caroline said...

condiment: cannot have any anymore used to be ketchup.

workout: morinng always. My legs are about 300 lbs each in the afternoon.

I am a morning person. I fall asleep in front of the TV almost every night!

tangents:..right now I have a tooth that is all plastic and it gets on my nerves so bad.

I have a collection of chuck taylor (low cut only) my pink ones are about as old as you dear!

I like working out in the morning, but I hate getting OUT of bed! It's a conundrum.

I really love BBQ, honey mustard, ketchup... RANCH. You can get yogurt ranch, though, and it's just as tasty. No worries. : )

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:00 PM , OpenID aspoonfulofsmash said...

RANCH! But I am totally a night person! And I just got karas book in the mail can't wait to read it! maybe we can have a book club and discuss it together?

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:02 PM , OpenID littlecollegevegan said...

When I used to able to have it...In-N-Out Secret Sauce (which I think is ketchup and ranch) Genius!
I'm a morning workout person....It feels good to have something accomplished while others are just dragging themselves out of bed. I'm a thumbs up kinda person too. Except I have oddly tiny thumbs so people make fun of me for them. Whateva, I rock it.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Anonymous Jenny @ Love Eat Run said...

Totally a morning workout person and a morning person in general. You won't catch me up past 11pm most nights...and thats LATE for me!!!

Ketchup for sure...Ill do mustard occasionally...the smell of BBQ sauce on its own makes me gag but I like it cooked into things.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:11 PM , Blogger Sara said...

Mayo is gross too! I love BBQ sauce, especially Sweet Baby Ray's... so good on burgers and to dip sweet potatoes in.

Are you still on spring break? Two weeks off? That would be so great!

Keep up the good work with waking up in the am... I try to work out/run in the am, but it only happens 1-2 times a week. But I get it done in the afternoon!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:14 PM , OpenID fitchocoholic said...

I'm definitely a morning person...I always get up before the rest of my family!! :D

My tangents:
Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods....besides chocolate. I've gone through half of a 20oz container in a week....all by myself. :P I now have my own pb jar with my initials on it!!!!

When we first moved here, we didn't speak any portuguese. Some friends gave us a basket of food when we got here, and we found these crackers that we loved. Since, we didn't understand all of the labels in the store, we just kept buying those crackers. I think we had crackers w/ butter for breakfast for about 4 months straight.....and then didn't buy them again for about 2 years! :D

I am scared to death of bugs. Not much else really scares me, but the second I see a bug, even if its tiny, I turn into my four year old self and scream my head off!!!

Hope you had a great day, Janae!!

I prefer to workout in the am, but my work forces me to workout in the pm. I do get up early on the weekends to head to the gym.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:18 PM , Blogger Spencer Family said...

I have to workout in the morning or else it doesn't happen--unless of course it's a spin or yoga class with a great teacher. Sometimes I can be motivated to make it to one of those.

Your tangent about talking with your hands made me think. You should do a short little video of you teaching. It would be really fun to see.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:20 PM , Blogger Annette@(running)In the Right Direction said...

So would love to be a morning person but I'm not. I am getting better at after a few years of crying babies in the morning hours! I prefer night but I don't like to work out in the pm...so again..forced to wake up but it sucks the first five minutes!!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:24 PM , Anonymous Brit said...

My favorite condiment is peach pineapple salsa.

I like to get my workout out of the way early so I don't have to shower twice, but that doesn't always work out for me.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:24 PM , OpenID runningonwords said...

I hate working out past about 10 AM. I get so much energy from working out and I feel fresher and like my workouts are more efficient in the morning.

So I'm from outside Pittsburgh (Heinz ketchup is based there) and I will only eat Heinz ketchup. I can taste the difference between it and any other ketchup (especially Hunts) and I will flat out refuse to eat somewhere that doesn't have Heinz. It's weird, but I swear that anything else doesn't taste right. I also prefer Miracle Whip to mayo. I think the tangy flavor tastes way more delicious than mayo.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:28 PM , Blogger Rene said...

I love mayo - a lot.
I work out around 8:30 every morning. I plan my school schedule around my workouts. If I don't make it in by them I usually skip the workout all together.
I am a total night owl and I hate getting up in the morning. I was so tired this morning I talked my 15 yr old into skipping seminary (good influence, right?) so I wouldn't have to drive her.
Tangent - I like to have running gear that makes me look more legit than I am. Fake it til I make it as far as I'm concerned.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:30 PM , Blogger EBURNS said...

Your post made me think about how much I have changed in 5 years time.

Ketchup is my favorite condiment now and I used to think it ruined the flavor of a grilled burger or fries or what have you.

I used to only like early morning workouts. Still true for the weekend, but during the week an after school sweat fest is a great stress reliever and gives me much more energy to hang with hubby/friends/family.

Used to be up at the crack of dawn even on weekends, now, on weekends, I sleep in a little later, 7, and stay up at least to 11 (used to be the total grannie home by 9)

 
At April 19, 2011 at 5:46 PM , Blogger my little celebration said...

1) Ketchup all the way hobo.
2) Morning workouts are THEE bomb.
3) Morning person all the way! It's kind of concerning how much energy I have in the a.m. hours.

4) TANGENT: I used to be lactose intolerant but I'm not anymore. I used to have asthma but I don't anymore. I used to have crooked teeth but I don't anymore. I used to think boys were icky but I don't anymore - hence my being married.

The end.

I am obsessed with bbq sauce mmmmmm
I like working out in the morning best (because then its easier to get 2 workouts in and I become less motivated as the day goes on but I will basically workout whenever the opportunity pressents itself :)
DEF an early bird. My roommates call me a grandma because I like to be in bed by 10 at the latest on week nights...

Omg I have the same front tooth story!!! Mine got knocked in/back after I slammed into this boy I was chasing in preschool! ;) Haha. I got them pulled and didn't have front teeth foreverrrr either! Apparently the day before I was supposed to get a procedure to cut my gums to make them come through...I fell on the sidewalk and that busted my mouth up enough to let my teeth come through. Clutz? I think so!

Mayo makes me gag too! I hate the taste, appearance, and the sound it makes.
Most of my workouts are afternoon, but I love mid-morning runs!

I run with my thumbs up! My race pictures always look super cheesy because it looks like I'm giving two thumbs up. I now make a conscious decision to tuck my thumbs when I see a photographer at races.

Italian or greek dressing!

You were in my thoughts yesterday, Janae. Today I figured out the injury details. I am so sorry. You are one tough chica and are going to come back SO STRONG. Sub 3 in November!!

I'm a thumbs up girl, too!

You and I should have a push-up contest! Like...in 100 days see who can do the most and video tape it and put it on the blogs. Mainly because right now I can probably do 10 pushups and that is with a break in between every 3 push ups! You in?

What is your condiment of choice?
BBQ Sauce

Do you have a set time of day that you work out or do you do it whenever you can according to what is going on that day?
I used to do the a.m. thing...and still do on the weekends but lately I've been staying up too late (aka 9:45pm) to get my butt to the gym by 5am. Therefore, I go after work when it is so busy you have to time your strength training work out to the MINUTE so that you can snag the empty treadmill the SECOND that the person gets off of it before someone else gets it.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
mornings are my favorite! i wake up at 5:30 even on saturdays!

I have more tangents listed on today's post on my blog!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:02 PM , Blogger Alyssa said...

I love triple tangent Tuesday and posted mine on my blog! I am obsessed with mustard and I think I literally have at least 8 kinds right now, but HATE ketchup and mayo, which I know is un-American. I also love waking up early to work out, and go to bed earlier than my grandma. I am impressed with your dedication though, way to stay in the routine! You are awesome!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:04 PM , Blogger Chels said...

I am 100% a morning workout person. A few times I tried last week to make it to the gym in the afternoon and I hated it! I love waking up and getting energized before my day starts.
Condiments, for sure ketchup all the way...I put it on EVERYTHING!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:09 PM , OpenID pajamachef said...

i love ketchup + mayo together! and sweet baby ray's bbq sauce (others are nasty). and sweet honey mustard, not tangy.

i work out in the morning! as early as it is light :)

i'm totally both...but not at once :) i need sleeeeep!

super crazy morning workout girl - 4:00 am five days a week (well it's really 4:15 by the time I get downstairs) I love it because it's MY time :)

I'm such a morning person today. Tangent about me-I just switched majors from math to health going to into my senior year. What can I say...blech, I ran my first half marathon and decided it was the greatest thing in the world. Okay I'm done rambling about myself and talking with your hands is awesomesauce, or least you aren't monotone and deaf like my drivers ed teacher....um yeah about him...

Ketchup is the best!!! I love love love it. I also hate mayo. Yuck.
I've been getting to the gym early these days and doing my workout before I go to work. I am beginning to love it.
I would call myself a night owl, but I'm becoming more of a morning person recently. The morning workouts are helping!
Tangent? I'm 32 and I sleep with a teddy bear. Yep. I'm a dork. :D

I'm working at becoming a morning person, it definitely doesn't come naturally to me.

I'm with you, mayo totally grosses me out, but I do love me some miracle whip. Mustard is my fave, it goes on EVERYTHING.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:20 PM , Blogger pseudoally said...

I'm with you on the ketchup! I use copious amounts of the stuff. I love pickles in ketchup! But I don't put it on everything - I don't put it on hot dogs, oddly enough and I don't put it on eggs or Mac and Cheese either. That's just gross. haha. But I know a lot of people that do :)
I think it's great you're still going to the gym. I think you'd be depressed if you weren't getting up and out there - and 4 sets of 13 pushups? You're a beast! And I mean that in a good way!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:21 PM , OpenID melissadishes said...

I was never a morning person, until I started running regularly. I can't take the 9 months a year that it's 95 degrees or more in the PM. So, I started running in the morning, then I moved my other workouts to the morning most of the time. I pretty much wake up early every morning, even on the weekends.

My whole blog today was random weird stuff about me, lol!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:24 PM , Blogger Liz said...

Definitely feel you on the morning workouts. To me, if I wait 'til the afternoon to workout, then I'm just waiting until the next morning. Because let's be honest, eating ice cream at 7pm in front of Food Network is much more enjoyable than being in a gym. :)

That pic of you is adorable!

I am not going to tell my husband how you feel about mayo for fear that he will decide you are his soul mate and leave me. I'm not a big fan of it either.

I'm sorry but I have no tangents to share because the three you shared today apply to ME as well!!!! I love ketchup so much, it's not even funny!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 7:42 PM , Blogger Laura said...

1. Mustard. Mostly because it's the healthiest and I don't like the others QUITE enough to sacrifice calories for a different taste. (Though yesterday I made a bit of my own BBQ sauce to put on a sandwich... so sometimes I concede!)
2. I work out whenever I can, which is probably why I've been so darn inconsistent lately! Need to work on that once I get on a new project for work and can get into a routine.
3. Definitely a morning person. I LOVE the early hours when I can get a lot done before everyone else wakes up! Funny, though - I totally used to be a night owl.

You are soo adorable!! :)

Def. a morning person!! I don't feel good about my day if I don't get my "sweat on!!" I'm always the first person awake at home. I get it from my dad...apple didn't fall to far away from the tree! :)

Fav condiment - I love cholula and sriacha sauce! Love it on my eggs, pasta, rice!

tangents let's see...I eat my sour patch kids, hot tamales by pairs. ummmm...I always put my right shoe on before my left AND I can only sleep on my right side! :)

have a great evening lovely lady!! :)

 
At April 19, 2011 at 8:02 PM , Blogger Stefanie D. said...

My fav condiment is spicy brown mustard. Mmmhmm.

I just try to workout whenever I can fit it in! So it varies. :)

I used to be a night owl...and I'm not really a morning person. My body is just confused when it comes to my sleeping habits.

Have a fabulous night ma' dear!

 
At April 19, 2011 at 8:06 PM , Blogger Missy said...

Lately my condiment of choice has been honey mustard! Yum!
I work out mostly at night but I have been trying to incorporate some morning workouts. I definitely agree that you should continue to workout when you usually do otherwise you are right, your body will not cooperate when it's time to get back into it.
I have never really been a morning person, so I guess that makes me a night owl!

I love ketchup with sweet potatoes! I also like hummus and spicy mustard. I'm more of an early bird than a nightowl, but you will rarely see me get out of bed before 6:00AM. And I love the thumbs up, too! Especially in a photo by yourself. :)

 
At April 19, 2011 at 8:17 PM , Blogger Kristen said...

BBQ sauce and absolutely no mayo! I like to run early as long as it isnt freezing out. I am often too tired by the end of the day. My sister had a similar tooth incident when she was two and lost her two front teeth. I have a neurotic fear that my kids will fall and knock out their teeth.

 
At April 19, 2011 at 8:22 PM , Blogger Pam said...

I like after work workouts, but I switch to mornings in the summer when it's too hot to run in the afternoon. I actually like both! I feel more tired when I get up super early, though. It feels like it's harder for my body to adjust.

Mmmmmm...ketchup, bbq sauce, and salad dressing. I dip LOTS of things in salad dressing :)

I'm a lover of ALL condiments. Seriously, I don't think there's one I've come across that I don't enjoy.
I love working out in the morning, knowing that it's done for the day! And I'd say I'm a forced morning person...I love the mornings, but it doesn't come natural. I have to force myself to get up...THEN I enjoy the day. :)

P.S. - Your blog as absolutely fantastic! I read all the time, just don't usually have time to comment. ;)

 
At April 20, 2011 at 1:07 AM , Anonymous Kat said...

Ketchup for sure! Although a little Worcestershire sauce and chickpeas fried with a little olive oil is deliciousness.

If I can, I work out in the morning, before I get off track/lazy/tired. That being said, I'm off school right now so it's easy and morning for me means 9am or something.

Night owl. 150%. Like goes-to-bed-at-3am sort of night owl. Yeah, it's bad.

Imagining you running around a classroom flailing your arms, made my morning!

I'd have to go with ketchup for my condiment too, I used to hate it, but have now embraced it for how awesome it is.

I'm a night owl!! Love to run at night! Don't know why but when I did a 200 mile Ragnar race last year I set all new PR's when I was running in the dark. Go figure.

It's funny about the thumbs up, I do the same thing! All my race photos have me running with my thumbs up!

 
At April 20, 2011 at 6:37 AM , Anonymous Abby said...

I love Ketchup too!!!!! But it has to be Heinz. No self respecting Yinzer (Pittsburgher) could have it any other way. I use it as salad dressing sometimes, too. Also, I'm with you on being a clutz.

And I really hate mornings. Sorry. But I do.

BBQ Sauce, Ketchup, Ranch!

Morning person - but not early morning!

I love Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce! It's best used to dip your french fries in. I also use mashed avocado as a condiment. I spread it on sandwiches, toast, burgers, etc...

I LOVE morning work outs!!

Definitely a morning person.

Um, wow your tangents are the same as mine! I am a ketchup freak, a total klutz AND I talk with my hands like its my job!

Condiment of Choice: I love condiments so it's hard to pick just one: 1) ketchup 2) Honey Mustard 3) BBQ Sauce 4) Pineapple Salsa ( try it!)

I'm a morning person as well. Just worked out this AM and feel FAB

I am a DIPPER!! wish I wasn't! I love ketchup, ranch, A1 on certain things, BBQ sauce, etc...I will give it a whirl...eXCEPT soy sauce...GAG! I like mayo but not for dippin'

I set 4:30 am for morning work outs, my daughter and hubby as still fast asleep when I rise at 4 and meet my running buds at 4:30, so there is no interference in actually completing my workout! that's just how I do it...otherwise, something ALWAYS happens. like yesterady I came home, put broccoli in the steamer, started cooking grren beans, marinated pork chops, and cut onions and mushrooms for sautee later, quickly changed clothes, ran out the door wigh kiddo and headed down the driveway wiht her in barbie jeep( yep pblazing at a 22 minute per mile pace) got to our runway(my husband is a crop duster) where I tricked her into playing while I ran up and down up and down. Yes there were stops and little walking to deal with her happiness, but that is what it takes to beg for a 3 mile evening run, then home to finish supper! joys of mommyhood and running!

I am a morning person but have totally been converted from a total night owl after having kids!

Jumping on the Kara-love bandwagon! I just started reading your blog, navigated here from Shut Up And Run. I just re-read Runners World's article on Kara from last year since I'm having confidence issues too. Her new book JUST arrived on my desk at work and I am geeking out. I really hope it helps. I am about to start training for my first marathon (MCM baby!). My and my punk-ass 10 minute miles (le sigh) need all the help we can get! You rock too, btw!

I'm def a morning person. I do my workouts early when I have the most energy. I feel guilty if I miss a workout. I still have fear foods!! I'm trying to work on it but its a struggle.

My favorite condiment is most certainly mustard. I cannot stand mayo or barbeque, but I will eat ketchup if mustard isnt an option.
I always workout in the afternoon/evening because I am NOT a morning person. That also kind of answers the final question... I am most definitely a night owl and can stay up to early hours of the morning! :D
