Today is one of those days that I feel like shouting, "I am the happiest person in the world, I love my man, and everything is perfect!" I hate when people put something like that our their Facebook update though, because a lot of the times it means their life is crumbling...or about to. Seriously! It seems more like a 'front' than anything, but I could be wrong. {And I know in some case I am wrong! Oh...and sorry if you do that, I still love you. Don't be offended. :D  }

But today is a good day. I got off work at 4 and came home to a tired Vince and Roxi because they had gone on a long bike ride. I did a bit of cleaning, started dinner with Vince, and then decided I wanted to workout.

I did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred video, which of course kicked my ass, and then guess what I did? As if the video wasn't enough, I RAN. IN THE FREEZING COLD. It is super cold outside today, considering it was snowing on and off all day. I never ever run in the cold because it hurts my lungs so gosh darn much, but I was already warmed up from the video and just felt like going going going. 

I ran about a mile and guess what guys, I didn't have to stop once! I got into 'the zone' and forgot that I was even running and then BAM, I was close to home. It's never really happened that way so I'm kind of a lot excited about it because I'm having a breakthrough in working out!

It's such a great feeling to not die after a workout like I used to. I never really liked working out, but now that I can actually SEE and FEEL a difference, I love it! I've pretty consistently done the video every 2 or 3 days for the past week and a half and now it's getting a little easier. I'm not quite ready jump up to level 2 yet, but I can feel I'm close! And now, because of my 8 Weeks to a Better Me Goals, I'm going to get to level two really quickly.

If you live in Flag and hate working out but want to workout, let me know and we can workout together! All it takes is a little motivation and then eventually you will like it. And don't worry, I'm not one of those people that will make you feel like crap because I'm 'so awesome'. I pretty much still suck at athletic things and am in NO way 'in shape', but I'm getting better! 

I never in a million years thought I would remotely like working out {Hello. I got a C in pretty much every PE class because I would get an F in the athletic part but get an A in the health/test part. My friend Annie and I frequently just sat together or took naps on the pole vaulting mats while everyone else played flag football because we 'forgot' and wore flipflops...} but I can honestly say it's growing on me. 

Ok, that's enough about working out. Two posts in two days aboutt it? Ew. What am I turning into?

On another good note, I'm getting the shading done on my tattoo on Thursday! So next time you see this little guy, it will be one step closer to being finished by the wonderful Tanin.


  1. I completely agree with your facebook theory, though I have admittedly done that a time or two... like for three months straight before and three months straight after our wedding. =D

    Glad to hear you're WINNING right now though! (Shameless Charlie Sheen joke, not funny).

  2. That is so awesome! I am soooo excited to see how your tattoo turns out, its gonna be sooo pretty! Hearts, Janna Lynn

  3. Ya, there are times when it's good to do, but not everyday! haha

  4. Yay! I'm so happy for you! And I can't wait to see the next stage of your tattoo!

    I might just have to take you up on that workout buddy thing. That was one of the bad things about withdrawing from NAU - I am no longer being graded for workout classes and because of that I'm sooo unmotivated.

  5.  That would be fun to get together! I have another friend Veronica that I am going to convince to workout with me, and I think it would be awesome for the three of us to do it! Have you been to the YMCA here? I hear it's nice but I haven't been. I want to go though!

  6. Lets do it! I haven't been to the YMCA here either but I'm sure it would be fun. We can all encourage each other! :)

    Oh and your PE story made me laugh. Mostly because me and one of my friends would always just happen to get sick the day of the Turkey Run in November.

  7. Sweet! I'm hanging out with Veronica today so I'll talk to her about when would work best this week and then I'll let you know. What days would work best for you? And if it's easier you can just text me. =]
