Wow!! I have really been MIA. I have many good reasons. I haven't been working out. I took an entire week off! I was too busy to find time to work it in my schedule. Since I'm not in training, I didn't want to stress about finding time to go to the gym, if I don't have the time. Here's what I've been doing instead:

Eating really, really big burritos from a place that we found (in walking distance) from our new house. 

We spent a night in a nice hotel/casino. We rarely ever stay in anything this nice, so it was pretty exciting! Here a some pictures from our room:

I loved the bathroom. There was even a deep tub with a separate shower (this is how we're going to remodel our bathroom). 

My best friend (since high school) is getting married soon and I'm the maid of honor. I tried throwing her a shower and bachelorette party, but all she wanted was a nice massage and a drinking party back at my house. So, I made that happen.

The next morning, Jason made me some awesome eggs (with tomatoes from our garden). It may look gross, but they hit the spot. 

I also hit up the Dollar Tree store and bought some cheap things to make some crafts. I turned ordinary clear glass candle holders, into something nicer.

I also made a candle holder out of sand. It's more fragile than your average holder, but it's a cute holder for outdoors.

Last night was my first night back to the gym and my muscles are already hating me (yoga will feel great tonight). I ran 4 miles on the tm and then headed over to my ripped class. I haven't been to ripped in such a long time (I've been trying out different classes), that it was so much fun. She always gets us relaxed and loose, then we end up dancing and fist pumping and hopping around by the end of the class. Some of the moves, I think "I can't believe this is part of the class, it's so much fun!".  About every 10 minutes, the instructor would count "1...2...3...GO!! You're not going fast enough!! Move your feet and let's GO!!!!!". I don't usually like yelling, but she does it just perfect and it doesn't piss me off. 

When I got home, I was starving (I know I will be even worse today), luckily, Jason was willing to fix dinner for me while I put my things away. He knows that I get extremely mad and unhappy when I'm really hungry.

Don't you hate it, when you take some time off of working out, then you hit it hard, your body is just so hungry all the time. I'm not use to it, but I'm glad I have food with me at work. 

And, finally, I've been eating somewhat healthy (talapia and green beans with fresh tomatoes)...

My birthday is Friday and Jason is having my gifts shipped to my work. At least this year, he's letting me open them up when I get them (un-like least year, I had to bring them home, so he could wrap them). 

When is your birthday? Doing (or did) anything special? Does yelling from your instructor help motivate you during a work out?


  1. sounds like you've still been busy!! I hope you have a great birthday on Friday! :) Love the glasses you made!
