Life is good...week 1/2013

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Hiya! I'm shooting for a weekly list in effort not to take on too much. I hope to work up to more, but one per weekend at least. :)

1. I have a PLAN. It might be a tad unrealistic, but then my goals usually are too, and somehow I end up accomplishing them anyway, so we'll see.

2. I have a new gym membership at the 24 hour place. Gone are my weekend timing excuses. Shucks, right? I had a stellar workout at 9:30 pm last night. Also, I learned that I am unable to do barbell shrugs without making faces like Elvis. Why must my lip curl/sneer to lift weights in that way? I have no idea, but I giggled through all 3 sets cause I could NOT stop it from happening, even by making other ridiculous faces at myself in the mirror. teeheehee

3. Also.. the Jefit apps. Cool workouts, sorta organized already.. zero boredom. (Jamie, this means I'll be interchanging some of my calendar days with these workouts, but I'll stick to the themes. I added shoulders to leg day last night cause Jefit told me to.)

4. My daughter has a boy over watching Star Wars. In the living room. On separate couches. Its sorta like a date, I think. Although she's ready.. I'm sure not!

5. I am so far signed up for a half marathon in May, a Dirty Girl race in August, and a full marathon in October. I'd welcome any input on other things to add. I think I'd like to continue with most of the races I did last year too.. the St. Patty's Day in March, Cherry Festival (in June this year), and the Bridge Run in September.

6. We moved in with my dad to help him out financially, and it seems to be going really well. Its a huge adjustment, but I have a bedroom with my own entrance to the patio, which as some of you might remember is one of my very favorite places.

7. Three months until our trip to Seattle/Portland/andhopefully Port Angeles. I can't wait to get out west again. I hope Reyann finds a college she likes!

8. I'm signed up for a yoga class at a different studio on Thursday. I can't wait. I miss the yoga. Unfortunately the studio I was going to before became a little (smothering? cultish? stalkerfull?) overwhelming (I have a new phone number, email, and am deactivating my facebook on my weekends off..), so I'm seeking out a place to continue my practice without having to drink the kool-aid too.

9. I have a freezer full of elk courtesy of my brother in law. We are eating GOOD here.

10. I love my sparkpeeps. Thanks for being there even after I'm awol.

    I'm glad you're back. It sounds like you have awesome goals again this year. You truly inspire me. A full and a half in one year?!? AWESOME! I am going back and redoing 5ks this year. At almost 50 pounds lighter I'm hoping that they stink a little less and I am faster:) Corktown is the first one on March 10th. (Free beer at the finish line) YUM!!

    Glad to see you back!

    Holy crap! A full and a half this year...I am beyond impressed!! I signed up for a half this year, that is my max. You, my uber tough friend, will rock it! Where is your full at? I would love to come cheer you on as you cross the finish line. I would even crawl on my knees with you and slip you goo packets.

    Your blogs are the best! Keep up the great work!
    BTW, I think you should post a picture of your Elvis faces. emoticon

    emoticon Amy!! I'm glad you're back around too! I don't think the yoga people realize that they're sorta freaktastic..I think they mean well, and I enjoy having yoga in my life, I just don't want it to be EVERYTHING, like they see it. And the marathon is so ridiculously beyond my ability that I keep breaking into random hyena-like laughter at the thought of it. I told my sister I'm going to wear gloves and knee pads so I can crawl the last 10 miles..
