Good morning beautiful sparkers! (Sorry about the swearing up top, but I like the attitude on that pic!)
As I sit here, sipping my coffee, enjoying this beautiful vacationy day and my last days of 27ness... I realize some things - 1. My running shoes have dog poo on them. That totally sucks. The one downside to running outside and using your running shoes for various things (like cleaning the side yard where the doggies go poo poo) isn't the best thing to do when you need your running shoes on a daily basis. 2. I have this ENTIRE day to myself. This is a blessing and a curse. I wouldn't say that I'm the totally opposite of the homebody, I just get bored easily. My plan for today consists of: SPRING CLEANING the crap outta my house. Remember all the crap talk in my previous blogs? Yup, today is that today. Time to decrapify everything in my house. It needs it. I live in a desert and DUST is seriously the worst! That with some computer networking stuff, a trip to the grocery store, and badda bing! I think I've got enough to keep myself busy. 3. What am I going to do with this whole week? I may loose my mind. I had to take this last week vacation off because I was going to loose the vacation time if I didn't..... I'm not a workaholic, but I love my job very much. I have no idea how I'm going to occupy myself for a week. The husband is working three days this week, and I've got plans for Friday, but golly, time to entertain myself and get a really solid workout week in the books. After this weekend, and some behavings, and some ice cream, I certainly have to snap up and get my eating back on track. That 156.8 was music to my eyes and my ears, and I want it back and I want to surpass it.
So... there are some randoms....
Now onto more serious stuff.
As I explained before in another blog, I got an email from another sparker, basically challenging me. Telling me that I was all butterflies and roses and not enough cahones' .... balls. Basically. I need to challenge myself a bit more. I know this. The thing is - I don't respond to drill sergeant, or that type of attitude. I respond more to a 'cheerleader' aspect of it for motivation. I know that this, as an optimist that I am, seems very cliche'.... but honestly. If I get too intimidated I just won't do it. Plain and Simple.
Also - as a 2013 challenge to myself, I promised that I'd post a monthly progress pic.... so here is one from St. Patricks' Day....
I think by the end of the year, as I post them monthly, I'll be able to see a difference, heck I may devote a blog just to the monthly pics to take a look and see what, if anything, has changed. Lately, I feel like my arms are what's definitely getting more definition and change to them since I've been weight lifting a few days a week. I'm hoping that by summer, I will really see a change in my body.
Alright, so now that my coffee is starting to kick in - I better get my pandora going (which by the way, when did Dance Pop become all country music? I'm confused!) and get ready to start on my garage! SPRING CLEANING, here we go!
