I just don't think ...


that I will be that productive for the next 12 days. At least not if the last four days are any indication of my future.

I go to work.

And then I watch the Olympics.

I actually haven't worked out since they began. Because watching them is exactly like doing them, right?

However, it should be noted that it's not like I just sit and watch the Olympics.

No, no. I am crazy-mad soaking in every bit of information I can on the games, the athletes, etc.

For example, I found it intriguing that Jon Horton of the US Olympic Men's Gymnastics Team is only five feet and two inches tall.

Read as: a whopping nine inches shorter than Mindy.

But just knowing that information wasn't good enough. I needed a visual.

And that is when the height chart began. 


To compare some of our favorite athletes' heights to ours.


Okay, so we don't really know who Matt Grevers is. He was just being interviewed and looked massive. So we Googled him. And we were right. 

So, yes. Yes, we do take our Olympics quite seriously.

P.s. My favorite is Bernard Lagat. All five feet and eight inches of him. You can watch him run on August 8th and August 11th. Heart.him.

Lastly, it must be said: when my older sister was little she used to run around the neighborhood ... NAKED.

What does that have to do with the Olympics? I am not sure. Just maybe that she could have won a gold medal for it because she was that good at running around naked.

That's all. I have more Olympics to watch.

I would just like to point out that I am *shorter* than every one of those athletes!! Do I win some extra gold stars for that?? :)

Also, my grandparents have pictures of my cousin running around outside their house... totally naked... and they had these giant logs that we would climb on (right on the corner of the street by their fence and gate).... and when we got to the top we would declare that we were "the king of the castle".... yeah, she did that... totally naked!! LOL!
