Random stuff Sunday

  • Women’s feminine product commercials give me the heebie-jeebies.
  • My garage is SPOTLESS.  (oh my aching back!) Yes, I cleaned it. Yes, I rock.
  • Matt & I had one of those days where we just did not get along.  At one point we talked about it and decided to forget the earlier part of the day and move on. About an hour later, he reverted to being a whiny, cranky butt head to me.  And then? Wanted me to read to him (which of course, I did).  SIGH. I hate it when we don’t get along.  What am I going to do when he is a teenager??
  • I felt like the epitome of motherhood when I took a basket of clean clothes into Matt’s room while he was asleep.
  • Watching a new show on HGTV in which people are allowed to go in and sleep over at the house they might want to buy. Can’t decide if it’s cool or freaky.
  • Looking forward to pulling weeds, re-mulching, and planting some new bushes and hopefully a veggie garden soon.
  • Also looking forward to going to the big scrapbook shopping thing this week.
  • Freaked out by hearing the same Meatloaf song twice within 2 minutes on tv. Eek!
  • My dreams the last couple of nights have been super vivid and freaking weird. I had a dream that I was invited to hollywood by some studio guy because he wanted me to write the screenplay for the book I wrote (!), but I didn’t know which studio and it was this big secret because of the competition. I was to fly out the next morning, but when I told Mike about it, he said no. LOL.
  • My cousin just asked me what is keeping me from training for that half-marathon we’re doing in January.  I haven’t answered yet because I really don’t have a good answer.  I’ve been doing better with my junk food intake and my water intake is up while my coke intake is down, so I’ve got that going for me…but why I’m not training yet? I. don’t. know.  The program I’m going to follow is for 3 days a week. 3 out of 7 and I still can’t get going. What IS keeping me from doing it? Armchair psychologists, feel free to chime in!!
  • I’ve been beading like crazy over the past few days. It started as a mission to make a bracelet for my mom for mother’s day, but has spread to making a ton of new eyeglass chains for the office. I can’t stop!!! I’ve also created a new logo and new tags for my stuff. Now, to find the time to update that website (even though I’m sure it hasn’t had a visitor in forever! I actually forgot what it looked like! lol)
  • There’s some kind of meme going around about songs you’re embarrassed to admit you like.  Think I might have to do this one some day.

That is all my friend(s).  More soon.

Congrats on the garage. That must be the worst outdoor spring cleaning job. I tackled the garage a bit this weekend, too. A post to come.

The hardest part of any training is getting started! Making it a habit and doing SOMETHING every day. It’s about making it a priority, making YOURSELF a priority for say an hour a day. You don’t have to run every day, go for a walk- SANS KIDS- so you can concentrate on you.

You may need to revist why you made your goal in order to re-inspire yourself!! Or make a new list of reasons it would be good for you to do! You’re either going to do it or not, now is your time to decide, you don’t have a year to train anymore!

I’m just grateful you didn’t have Meatloaf in your vivid dreams….

ohai! well, i think flutter is right, although for serious life change, you have to do something to hold yourself accountable each day. this is generally why people call me to train them. and why i call someone to train me. because i ate beef fajitas and banana creme brulee tonight. ugh.
