Dear 2013

This year, I have been stressed, tired, angry, irritated and vulnerable. I didn't appreciate it one stinkin' bit. I am gladly leaving your ass behind and happily moving into 2014.

Yes there was a few good times, but when I think about it; I feel I am moving into 2014 with renewed inner strength, renewed inner peace, and renewed inner vigor.

It's time to move on and begin my 2014 with a kick-ass attitude.

To 2013 I leave you with a Good-bye, Adios, Au Revoir, later BEEEEOTCH!

Feeling Tempted

Get Yourself In Gear, You Pansy!

These are the words that scream inside me right now. Christmas is just right around the corner and I am feeling the pressure of wanting to eat lots of goodies! Temptation is out and I'm feeling the pressure!

Pain In The ...


I had a small knee injury. It wasn't from working out. It was from shopping Saturday at 8 am to 4:30 in the afternoon.


It's true, but I am feeling better. I think it's safe to continue my workout. I have been sitting on the sidelines for the past three days and I was a little worried, but I really do feel better.

Back to sweating and moving!

Quiet Night

Even on a Friday night I am still in my workout groove! I don't know if I should be on a walk of shame for not having plans tonight, but Mark is back on the road and Annaleigh is at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a sleepover.

I tried strength training tonight. I feel good. I was breathing like a dragon and my muscles were shaking, but I completed with success!

Hope this doesn't happen to me!!!

It's a chilly night, so I think I'll just relax and keep warm.

No Judge Zone

I didn't run with excuses today... if fact they never entered my mind, not once. Unbelievable! It took one post to undo some negative thinking... go figure. My workout also felt a little easier in some places. I might have to step it up a notch.

Today my husband was home. Remember I told you that he has been losing weight and riding his bike. I had been working out at home, while he has been out working on the road and came home late last night. Well, I had only one little dilemma and that was Mark would be home to see me workout. I have don't workout in front of him, due to things moving side to side, jugs doing jiggles and let's not forget a whole lot of unnatural breathing. He volunteered to cook Chinese with lots of veggies for dinner, so he was in the kitchen chopping veggies most of the time. I kept shouting at him a play by play during a quick intermission. I just didn't want him to judge me. In the end I was done and relaxed. No judgment, or criticizing from him. Thank goodness, because I might have snapped his head off, ninja style!

I feel pretty good right now. Off to go relax with the family.

Here's some motivation for me...

Done With Excuses

Why is it that there is this voice in my head...(no I'm not crazy, at least I don't think I am.)... that tries to give me excuses to avoid working out. I kid you not.

I have considered these excuses...

I'm tired.

My knee hurts like the dickens.

No time today, I have to go get groceries.

Skip one workout, make it up tomorrow.

I'm stuff right now, I might barf if I workout.

I have had to argue with myself today so I don't let the excuses win.

I'm tired. SUCK IT UP, WIENER.

My knee hurts like the dickens. NO IT DOESN'T, LYING WON'T GET YOU ANY WHERE!

No time today, I have to go get groceries. GROCERY SHOPPING DOESN'T TAKE ALL NIGHT!

Skip one workout, make it up tomorrow.  LIAR, SKIP ONE, YOU'LL SKIP 'EM ALL!

I'm stuff right now, I might barf if I workout. AND WHOSE FAULT IS IT FOR OVER EATING!

Just incase you were wondering, I DID workout, because I am awesome! I'm done with excuses!

Working Out

Working out is commitment.

I am going on day 3. I tried to talk myself out of it today, but I just couldn't. I have read a few articles about building a habit. It takes 3 weeks, that is 21 days to build my workout habit. I don't want to quit. It's not in me this time around. I'm a little nervous about my knee, but it's not too bad. I just don't want to damage it. Ever since that car wreck last December, my knee has never been the same.

I have been enjoying the workouts. Stretching feels great. Just moving has been wonderful. I feel better. Could it be that ...

Who knew.
