A totally unexpected side effect of getting healthy

Monday, September 12, 2011      12 comments

My self esteem used to be in the toilet. Even in high school when I had lots of friends and had a great time hanging out with them, I was the fat one, the one with the pimply face, the one wearing the baggy black clothing... ugh I try to forget... Read more

Today

Sunday, September 11, 2011      4 comments

I don't know if this is cheating or not, but I am counting today's cleaning and marathon cooking session as my cardio. I had cardio scheduled on my calendar... it looks like I'm going to have to schedule in some more rest days since I'm really ... Read more

It's here it's here it's here it's here it's here!!!!

I loooooooooove Fridays! I love my job, I LOVE my kiddos, but I looooooooooove Fridays. Last night was parent orientation - it's nice to see parents I know and it's nice to meet new parents. One of the moms told me that music is her d... Read more

5:00 am is early. Almost ridiculously early. But 5:00 is the best time for me to get up - I can have my coffee and Spark before I go to the gym. I have plenty of time after the gym to get ready for school. And Lord knows I won't go to the gy... Read more

Hump Day!

Wednesday, September 07, 2011      1 comments

I am totally exhausted. These kiddos wear me out! Today was good on the eating front. I had a good lunch, drank lots of water (I still have some to drink tonight, though) and got some errands done after school. But my scheduled cardio wo... Read more

I love long weekends!

Well I sure did labor on Labor Day! - 20 minute swim - made tomato sauce for the freezer - baked a carrot cake (it's actually in the oven right now) - packed my lunch for tomorrow and Brad's lunch for today - did laundry - planned... Read more

I met my girl crush today.

I found a new crush at the gym. Today when I went down to the weight room, there was this woman down there with THE MOST AMAZING body I have ever seen. Right there, in person. I felt like such a creep - I couldn't help but peek at her while I... Read more

Electric Love

Friday, September 02, 2011      4 comments

BAM! You know how it feels when all of a sudden your routine is knocked for a loop? Sunday at 12:38pm (I wrote it on the calendar) we lost power. And our water is hooked up to the electric, so we had no water. We finally got it back yesterda... Read more

I have my workout schedule for next week all figured out. Monday is the first day of school with the kiddos! I am ready for school to start. I am looking forward to getting back into a routine! Although the first week won't be much of a rout... Read more

I don't know how many of you watch wresting, but my blog title is what The Miz (one of my favorite wrestlers - you may remember him from Road Rules!) says all the time. It's actually a pretty good catch phrase. But anyway, I *do* feel pretty a... Read more

OMG ANNOYED

Wednesday, August 24, 2011      11 comments

I am so unbelievably annoyed right now. Today was set-up day in our classrooms. I was so excited - my room is a really neat-looking room. I have light-diffusers on the fluorescent lights, I have a nice library area, I have a "stage" where... Read more

A short one

Today I am thankful for (some of these are kind of shallow): - face moisturizer/sunscreen/light tint that leaves NO shine at all and is WONDERFUL - shampoo that makes my hair luscious and shiny! - visits with dad - a day off for Brad!... Read more

It's amazing how the little things can make a big difference. We have a beautiful back deck, but we don't spend much time out there. I think it's because it's kind of sparse out there - I haven't really spent the time or money to make it a nic... Read more

Sunday Night Football! Hooray!

So my hair smells a little like Starbucks right now... I got this hair oil and I'm trying it out while I type this blog. I have an Ulta card and I spent so much in a certain period so I got some "free" hair oil. In 20 minutes I should have som... Read more

Funk, be gone!

It's kind of funny how when you start paying attention to your body through eating and working out you can start to tell the difference between "Man, I really don't want to do this, but I will anyway" and "You know what? I can NOT drag my rear ... Read more
