Overview of a good week and Hell Freezing Over

So this week I did pretty good with not snacking too much. I did allow for some treats here and there, because well let's face it, they are good and make me happy. But I did not go overboard which was the main goal. I already made my lunches for this week, so at least that is out of the way.

The work-out schedule did not go completely as planned this past week, because the roommate had to go to a conference, and we weren't feeling the upper body work-outs. We figured it was our last week of "vacation" until the new semester started. We did however fit in all the runs and did ab work-outs! (17.3 miles of running this week! I'm so proud of myself. LOL)

Today we came up with the schedule for this week since the classes at the gym start back up. I am extremely excited!

Sunday: 8 mile long run (check!)
Monday: Spinning for 1 hour
Tuesday: 5K short run (maybe 4 miles instead) and 1 hour of pilates (YAY!!!)
Wednesday: Spinning for 1 hour and arms
Thursday: 10K run and 1 hour of power pilates (never tried this class... very curious as to how that is going to go!)
Friday: Arms
Saturday: 90 minute spin class followed by 1 hour of pilates

Now that I have returned from my vacation, I needed new motivation to stick with my work-out schedule. Yesterday I received the official invitation to my cousin's wedding this October. It says "black tie optional", which to me reads as "pretty dress". I can't wait to go dress shopping! For those who know me, you know that this sounds crazy, because I have always been a "jeans and t-shirt" girl, but I cannot wait to dress up! The last time I had the opportunity to dress-up was at my good friend's wedding last November. I also have a second wedding to attend the following weekend, so watch out world... Jessica is going to look like a girl. LOL (I even wore shorts jogging this morning... me, in shorts! Hell must be freezing over! I wear jeans or pants all the time! I even wear running pants to races in this Florida heat... maybe not for long.)

Now this is completely non-running related, but since I mentioned hell freezing over... if anyone else is a chemistry dork like myself, you will appreciate this:

Hell Explained By A Chemistry Student

The following is an actual question given on a
University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The
answer by one student was so "profound" that the
professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet,
which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of
enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is H.ell exothermic (gives off heat) or
endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs
using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats
when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is
changing in time.

So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving
into Hell and t he rate at which they are leaving. I
think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets
to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at
the different religions that exist in the world today.
Most of these religions state that if you are not a
member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since
there is more than one of these religions and since
people do not belong to more than one religion, we can
project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect
the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in
Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the
temperature and pressure in H.ell to stay the same, the
volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls
are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate
at which souls enter H.ell, then the temperature and
pressure in H.ell will increase until all Hell breaks

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the
increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and
pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa
during my Freshman year that, "it will be a cold day
in Hell before I sleep with you, and take into account
the fact that I slept with her last night, then number
two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is
exothermic and has already frozen over.

The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has
frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any
more souls and is therefore, extinct...leaving only
Heaven thereby proving the existence of a divine being
which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting
"Oh my God."



  1. Nice week! I know how you feel about dressing up! I'm normally just a short and shirt kind of guy but when my friend asked me to be a groomsman for his wedding this past summer, I loved wearing the tux! Have a god week!

  2. Thanks for stopping by ;D

    Ooohhhhhhh weddings are always a good thing, any excuse to buy some cute clothes ;D

  3. My mom sent me that joke awhile back; it is pretty funny and I would've given the student an A as well. You'd have to for that kind of creativity!
