This world is a scary place to live in. Like, really scary. Besides all of that “government conspiracy” stuff (don’t be naive – it’s out there), there’s all kinds of natural disasters that threaten to happen at any given time. Think about it – the hurricanes, tsunami’s, tornado’s, earthquakes, etc. Honestly, I’m freaked out about something happening like this and not being prepared. Living in St. Louis, we are pretty much right on the New Madrid Fault and I can see us having a devastating earthquake at any time .. and with no warning! Continue reading
For someone who loves to sleep – a lot – I have the hardest time actually falling asleep. I can be so tired but will lay in bed for literally hours before finally dozing off. This made me almost crazy during my pregnancy with Bear, because you know pregnancy induced insomnia isn’t already bad enough as it is. Continue reading
“It’s a good thing I don’t drink” is one of those phrases I tend to say a lot. I usually say this when I’m dealing with something or someone that’s making me want to lose my schmidt You know, the type of things that would make someone who does drink become full-on alcoholic. If you know me personally – then you know there are a lot of things in the world that would drive me to a dangerous level of alcoholism. Continue reading
Day 4. The view from here.
This is the view from my back door. There’s not much to really see.
Sometimes I really enjoy all of the privacy.
Sometimes I’d like to look at something other than a fence.
I’m well on my way to a new me. Even with a disappointing day or two. My goal so far this week has been to do Zumba every day for at least 20 mins, drink 8 glasses of water a day, and stay under my daily calorie allowance. I’d say I’ve done good and I’ve done bad.
Day 1 I did GREAT! First I drank all 8 glasses of water and I think this is the first time I’ve EVER done that. I learned for me its easier to break it up into small amounts – 2 glasses with each main meal, and then 1 glass with each snack. So I had 2 for breakfast, then 1 with my snack. Then I had 2 more with lunch and 1 with my after lunch snack. Then finally I had 2 more between dinner and my Zumba work out. I also stayed on track with my diet and even squeezed in a 20 min low intensity Zumba work out (and let me tell you there was nothing “low intensity” about it.). Continue reading
Day 3. Heart.
Something you will always see me write next to my name.
And because someday I’ll be famous.
Day 2. Something new.
Japanese cherry blossom body spray from my soon to be sister in law.
Because she loves me and knows how much I love this stuff!
It’s a new year – and I’m hoping it’s going to be much better than the last. Not that the last year was terrible, in fact, it was definitely one of the better years I’ve had in a while. I just hope that 2013 knocks me off my socks in a good way – that’s all.I thought about doing a 2012 recap but that will take too long. If you follow my family blog, you can just read it there whenever I feel like posting it [maybe never?]. Instead I’ll just show you how I welcomed 2013. Enjoy!
Today I spent the entire day in my slipper boots.
Because I heart them.
You know you’re overweight when your Wii Fit Balance Board grunts as you step on it to weigh yourself. Seriously Wii Man?! I guess that means its time for me to step it up and get with it. I love food. Too much. I blame Pinterest and all of its awesome recipe’s I keep finding. Lucky for me I also love Zumba and I’m so excited because I got the new Wii Zumba Core for Christmas! So now I’m going to challenge myself.
