Phyrra Says Vol. 4

Phyrra Says Vol. 4

It’s time for another Phyrra Says Vol. 4 This is a rambly non-beauty video and post where I tell you about the past week in my life. Please feel free to skip if this doesn’t interest you. I talk about my great experiences with Amazon and Nyx, and my ok experience with Shoes.com. I share what it’s like to walk my three dogs and my adventures in getting fit.

Last Thursday I lifted weights for the first time, focusing on my arms. After the workout session my arms were like jelly. I could barely hold the phone to text Jen (My Beauty Bunny).  However, the next day (Friday), my arms were sooo sore! They were sore all weekend. That didn’t stop me from taking walks with the puppies. Sunday I did interval training on the Arc machine. I’m really grateful that Ray is going to the gym with me and doing these things with me because I feel so awkward at the gym. We’re also taking walks together.

Tonight we’re going for another session with the personal trainer and I’m not sure if we’re focusing on arms or legs with the weights, but I’m looking forward to it.

I had fun hanging out with friends this weekend. The guys played Elder Scrolls beta, though I skipped gaming this weekend and instead spent time reading. I finished Kim Harrison’s The Undead Pool, which I thought was fabulous. I’ve currently got Half Off Ragnarok by Seanan McGuire and Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop up next.

        You can now ‘follow’ authors on Amazon (and Good Reads) and that’s how I keep track :)

      The pain is oh so worth it! I do Insanity on and off and man can my body hurt the first two weeks but then you feel so much stronger and when you start seeing the results it makes it all worth it!

      I had great c/s with Ulta recently; one of the foaming hand soaps arrived and had leaked out significantly. I emailed them and they credited me back the full purchase price even though it was buy 2 Get 2. It was so quick too!! I have also had issues with Shoes.com. Now I stick to Zappos or Clark’s. It’s odd that they make it such a long drawn out ordeal. Whereas Zappos is like ‘Whatever you want!’ And super duper quick as well. I just placed a huge order with Clark’s; they have a good sale going on and I ordered a pair of brown boots and 2 pairs of flats. They have really upped their game and have some really nice stuff.
