5 on Friday

Happy Friday! Oh boy I am glad to see you! We had progress/assessments due this week so I stayed late, and then worked out. I also had bus duty in the mornings! Thank you for being here Friday! 

1. Well in honor of the Super Bowl being this weekend...I am having to post a wonderful picture of Eric Decker. I am a Dallas Cowboys fan, but he is sure starting to win me over to the Broncos side. And since we only live 3.5 hours from Denver we are cheering for them! 

2. I am so excited for Maleficent movie. Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite Disney movie since I was little! And Lana Del Ray is singing "Once Upon Dream" and Lana is one of my favorite singers....

3. I am really excited to slowly start seeing some small changes from working out.... 

I just finished 4 weeks...

4. I follow on facebook "Fitness Girls" and there is pictures and videos. I highly recommend Keith Thompson spinning video on there. I tried to get it on her, but was unable to. I found this picture and it is my inspiration if I am ever a mom.

5. I am painting this weekend (dining room). Any recommendations for painting a wood table??

Happy Friday/Weekend bloggers!

Weekend rewind

Happy Monday! 

I hope you all are staying warm and had a fabulous weekend! 

My weekend was extremely laid back for the most part. 

Friday: work was short, but quite busy!! I worked out immediately after work so I would still be motivated, and I was really happy, I ran for 24 minutes on the treadmill, which may not seem like a lot but I was pretty happy. I completed 2.5 miles, which I want to definitely increase, but running on a treadmill has always been difficult for me! After that I came home, and Scott and I both fell asleep! We ended up grabbing Subway and just relaxing the rest of the night.

Saturday: Scott and I both slept in. I woke up and made us breakfast. I then had a 2 hour phone date with one my best friends Hope. She is prego and having her baby boy in April. (i swear everyone is pregnant around me) It was so good to catch up, I always enjoy our phone dates! 

After that I realized I was super behind in getting ready. Scott was reffing a freshman bball game, and him reffing was something I just had to see haha! 

It was fun watching him! haha! After we stayed and watched jv and varsity. All three teams won! 

After the game we went out for a few drinks. I did enjoy a Moscow mule! oh haven't had one forever. so good! 

It was a nice night out. 

Sunday: Slept in a little too late. Then I really wanted to go to Casper for some house stuff. We ended up going, but didn't get much done due to the weather and Scott saying it was time to go. Then my wonderful husband made ME drive in the dark blizzard. I was not happy but I guess it's always experience.
Ps I did buy some more workout clothes so that made up for it

Monday: It wasn't a bad day. It went by quickly at work so that always makes me happy. I then worked out, I did 6.6 miles on the elliptical for 40 minutes, weights, and abs! I am a little bit tired tonight! It was a good day, and I have to show you the "storms" my kiddos made today! They are supposed to look like a rain storm! 


Hope you have a good rest of the night!

Struggle ON!

Hello friends.

I really hope that you are having a great day, and I am hoping that you enjoy my blog as well. I am feeling like I don't have a lot of people who enjoy it, so if you have any suggestions let me know. : ) 

As for my workouts...I took Monday off since I had day off. Then I felt guilty and made up for it last night. I did 6.5 miles on the elliptical, abs, and arms. I was sure tired today. I then told myself no more days off like that and made up again with insanity. whoa. TIRED girl here. 

I found this while looking for more motivation...

So I am going to keep going...and hope that the results come. I also took my measurements too...(not happy with those) but I gotta start somewhere!

I hope you enjoy my blog, because I enjoy it, but I would love to have everyone enjoy!

Happy Monday!

Hello Happy MLK DAY and a day off for me! 

I am loving this long weekend, even though I didn't get barely anything I wanted accomplished! 

Friday: I got off an hour early from work, so I was excited and got to go workout early. I got 5.5 miles done on the elliptical, abs, and weights. The low point of my workout was seeing a guy doing squats and his leopard underwear were showing...haha...I had a hard time holding myself low point hearing a guy try to pep talk himself to do his reps. (then he didn't even finish them) but I was so happy to get my workout done early! Scott and I ended up and watching the boys basketball game, which we won so that was nice. The rest of the night was relaxing.

Saturday: I went to a special Saturday spinning class they had. I wore my new shirt I got for Christmas, loved it. Kept me motivated. 

After my workout I got a nice surprise that my pop-e was coming for the rest of the weekend. Scott left for Denver to go watch the playoff game so it was nice to have company. I finally got to watch my cousin Carson play and she even got in the varsity game! 

I ended up staying the night with my family since Scott was out of town. So nice to hang out with them.

Sunday: LAZY. that was my word yesterday. I did nothing but watch football and sleep. The twins stopped by and that was nice. Milli got to play with my aunt's boxers. I think she wore them both out! 

Last night I finally told myself I needed to do at least one thing productive, so I gave Milli a shower. Thank goodness because she smells much better haha! 

Today: I went to breakfast with my pop-e, aunt, and cousin. We then went shopping (if you can call it that) at a little store we have. They came over and helped try to pick out some paint colors for some more rooms in the house... and now I need to go to the grocery store to get some food since we seem to have nothing. 
I am honestly just enjoying having the day off!!! 

I hope you have had a wonderful day and weekend!

Feel good

HELLLLOOOO... so as I was typing my post last evening my computer decided to freeze and shut down. It was so aggravating due to the fact that I love my computer and it was the last thing my grandma and pop-e got me before my grandma passed away, and the thought of possibly having to get a new one breaks my heart. So I am going to continue my post from last night!

(I have spinning class in an hour and I thought this was appropriate and funny)

Today I a thinking of feel good things... Once I got home from work I came to find a surprise... 
My mother being the a best mother ordered me a subscription to Self magazine. She said she knew how hard I am working and trying to get back into shape..and she thought it would help me stay motivated. My mom isn't amazing because she ordered me it, but because she is just amazing. She is so encouraging and works so hard herself. I am so beyond blessed to be able to have her as my mommy!  

I just saw this quote the other day, and I thought it was so great, because I have a horrible habit of obsessing and getting upset over past events... 

I also am super excited, it has been a difficult week at work, and I am so happy that tomorrow is just a work day, and I am done by 1.  yaya! well with that note it is time for me to get ready to go work out.

xxoo happy day!

My weekend and monday

hello friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Monday. I had every intention of blogging last night, but while I was cooking dinner I came out to the living room to this....

My husband surprised me with a little set up for a "romantic" evening. It was really a nice surprise, so obviously I allowed myself to just enjoy the time with him. 

It was a nice treat after a long Monday. I had more students added to my class, and let's just say it made for a difficult day.

My weekend....

completely low key. We had dinner with the in-laws, and then came home and watched tv/movies. It was so nice just to relax. We were supposed to go to my mom's this weekend, but due to weather, it didn't happen, so I was a little sad about that.

Since I didn't want to workout on Friday I made sure I went and worked out on Saturday making it 5 days! YAY! I did 5 miles on the elliptical!


After a workout I relaxed and Scott watched some football. 
We ended up going to dinner with another couple, and then going for a few drinks. I guess you could say a few drinks for Scott. I had one and just felt guilty having one after working out so hard that day.

Since we stayed the weekend I had a baby shower to go to. It was so nice and I even won a little wine glass filled with chocolates and make up! The sweet prego friend is due any day now and you wouldn't guess she is that far along! She is adorable. And I got to see one of my closest friends. I felt left out though over half the girls there were pregnant! Crazy! haha! oh well my time will come some day hopefully.

The rest of the day I cleaned and got ready for the week!

Low key, but that's okay with me!!

Hope your weekend + monday have been great! 

Oh and on Sunday my pop-e and late Grandma would have celebrated 68 years. I know my grandma is smiling down at my pop-e! I made sure to call him and tell him happy anniversary! love that man to the moon and sure miss grandma everyday! 

Happy Tuesday.

5 on Friday

Happy Friday fellow bloggers! 

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday. I am enjoying relaxing after dinner at the in-laws, and spending time with my loves. So nice after a long week back at work. 

-1- So as a lot of my fellow bloggers, I got a new planner for 2014. I love planners (yes I'm a nerd). I also love to collage and to keep my fitness goal I collaged the whole planner. 

-2- I am loving F. Scott's writing. His quotes just warm my heart, and I love his writing. I have been pinning like crazy. 

-3- Scott and I never got a honeymoon after we got married due to having to be at work the Monday after our wedding. We are looking to book one for this summer and would like to get on it ASAP. I am taking suggestions pretty please!!!!! 

-4- Well we have had 30 to 40 mph winds here all week along with snow. It's sooo lovely   So my skin is so screaming for moisture. I am literally obsessed with my Clinique lotion. I highly recommend.


-5- My best friend is begging for me to start Downtown Abbey, yay or nay? 

I hope you all have a wonderful, warm weekend!

don't stop.

So as you know my goal is to work out 5-6 days a week. I finished day 4 today.

My biggest problem is I want results instantly, and I give up when I don't see them. I can be impatient when it comes to myself. So I collaged all over my planner, have a background on my phone, and I think if I blog about it maybe I'll stay motivated to see results. It is weird, you would think that me being a P.E. and Health major, athlete my whole life I would know that results don't come overnight. I guess when I gained weight do to a medication it made me unmotivated because I have never had to think as much to myself getting older, and my body changing. (I don't mean that badly I have always had to work for my fitness, but not as hard I guess) 

So this week: 
Monday: insanity
Tuesday: elliptical and treadmill, weights, abs
Wednesday: Treadmill (variety program-30 mins.) abs
Thursday: Spinning class (first time too)

Some of my motivations! What do you do to motivate? Please share!! Love your comments!

Happy Thursday!

Catch up... part 2

Hello!!!!! Happy HUMP DAY. 

So I am finally catching up from the rest of my 2 week holiday. So this is the rest of the Christmas holiday. It was so wonderful, and I love the time with my family. I did get a new Christmas gift... a camera...a really nice camera. I have been wanting one for awhile since my other digital camera broke. Scott's parents/sister gave me gift cards, which helped me get my camera. I love it. I haven't quite got the whole program down, but when I do I will be adding some more Christmas photos. 

So below are from my phone!

My sweet pop-e turned 88 on December 22nd. He loves... I mean loves P.F. Changs, so we drove down to Colorado a day early and finished our shopping, and then the next day celebrated my sweet favorite man's birthday. 

love him more than words.

family photo.

My mom is one of 5 sisters and they were finally all together! 

The girls and their dad. Wish grandma was still here.

The next day was spent getting pop-e's house ready for Christmas. 

Christmas Eve is another special day, my baby sister's birthday. She turned 18! So exciting, but makes me sentimental since she is growing up. 

I always feel bad though because she doesn't get much of a day since she shares with Christmas dinner and what not... I love her to the moon and back, and I am excited of the woman she is becoming and will become. 

On Christmas Eve we have our dinner, and my grandma started a tradition when my mom and sisters were young. Every Christmas Eve they got new pj's to wear to bed that night. Well my mom and her twin have continued the tradition, as I will someday. Since Scott is now family he even got new pj's! 

At Christmas Eve dinner 

Christmas day with so many people is crazy. It is wonderful. We open gifts, then go to my aunt's for bunch. spend the day in our pj's. I love it.

Milli had a great Christmas. I love her.. She was so excited! 

In her elf costume. 

Scott spoiled me big time.... 
I got a North Face coat, nike gear, shoes, clothes, and a..WINE FRIDGE. he knows his wife so well. 

my new camera. 

Scott didn't last at bunch very long. 

Enjoying my pop-e's homemade Tom and Jerry's. So delicious! 

The next few days we relaxed, and Scott had a doctor's appointment. It was so nice.. and I miss it so much already. 

I hope you all had a great Christmas. 

Happy Hump Day.
I'm officially caught up!
