Tune Tuesday!

Original isn’t it?  I know I’m probably the first one in the world to come up with this idea…  I’ve heard of meatless Monday and wordless Wednesday and fearless Friday…  oooooooh, maybe fearless Friday.  We’ll see.  I’m trying to come up with some ideas that will keep me engaged in updating my blog, I’m a shitty blogger and usually peter out after about a month…  or earlier.  So don’t get your hopes up.  But today is here and I have motivation so on one Tuesday a month I am declaring it TUNE TUESDAY!  I will post some songs that I have been enjoy

Hello 2012!

I’m not sure if I would call these resolutions or maybe just things I’d like to get done this year or accomplish. I’m good with lists, especially when I leave them places I always see them so the fridge or the computer or beside my bed.

- Be able to run 5km in less than 32 minutes. I’m not sure why 32 but I think it sounds good to me.
- Read at least 18 books. Last year I shot for 12 books and did that and many more. Hopefully this should be one of the easiest things to accomplish.
- Go back to yoga and enjoy it. I got a nice new shirt and a hot yoga towel for Christmas hopefully this will inspire me to go Saturday mornings and sweat until I feel like I’m going to puke and then as I’m leaving think to myself “that was great! can’t wait to go back next weekend!”.
- Figure out and stick to and enjoy a new way of eating. I’m hoping to clean up my eating and become healthier because of it.
- Get more activity. This means just getting out more than my base level... doesn’t have to be tons just more.

Happy July!

Hello there!  I’m sure you haven’t missed me at all and didn’t even wonder where I went so I won’t go into details.  My hubby has been posting enough for the both of us since he took on the challenge of doing the Photo a day for a year challenge.  At least one of us is making good use of having a website!

What to have for dinner when Daddy goes running?

Tim has been leading a half marathon clinic through a local fitness store.  He’s almost done, it seems like it has been the longest clinic in history.  At least to me it feels that way.  On Tuesdays since I believe the beginning of December we have seen him for about an hour before he leaves again to go running.  Sometimes less depending on how the road on the way home were.  Part of me will be really happy when he’s done volunteering for this clinic but the other part of me wonders what he’ll do for fun???  Maybe go back to WoW or play more Civ…  who knows.  Maybe running is better for him

Happy Anniversary!

Six years ago yesterday I married to the most wonderful man.  He supports me, loves me, provides for me (and our children), and most importantly puts up with me and my craziness.  I love you Hunny, I know I don’t say it enough but I’m so happy you are a part of my life in such a big way.  It’s one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made.  Thank you for accepting me, flaws and all.

One goal for the new year down… so many more to go!

I did it!  For the first time in…  well ever!  I bought a BRAND NEW pair of winter boots!  The last pair I had my Mom and Dad bought me when I was in Junior High…  yup.  They were some good boots, unfortunately 2 years ago they sprung a leak.  I threw them out thinking that would force me to buy a new pair last year.  Nope, my cheapness and lack of job kept me from bringing home a new pair of boots.  This year I finally did it though.

In with the New Year!

Resolutions for 2011, I have a few…  some are silly and some I think will help me to become a happier person before I *gulp* turn 3, er 29 again.  I’m not very consistent with making them every year.  It’s probably because I wasn’t accountable to anyone and could slack off on them if I wanted to.
