Putting in the time!

Well, hello!!  I’ve been a bit lax on my blogging the past week or so…I just don’t seem have much to say!  I’ve been deep in thought.  I’m thinking about a lot of things– I feel a new season coming in my life again–it’s time to WORK harder and smarter!  I’ve always worked hard, but not always smarter.  I get into streaks were I only work hard at the easy, fun, little stuff and ignore “BIG” items.  That’s been the case the past few months– I’ve been avoiding “big” commitments, projects and workloads.  We’ll that’s ending~ I’m back on the attack and focused on “BIG” things!

Big things take a ton of mental power- my brain has been in overdrive and it’s exciting!!  Big things also take TIME…I need be putting in the time behind my computer to make the goals I have become reality. I don’t particularly like working on the computer, but putting in the time is part of what it takes to make things happen!

ONE BIG thing I’ve been prepping for is our new contest!! It’s starting in just under 2 weeks!! August 20th!! WOW!! I’ll be posting the sign up link very soon– watch for that!!

I ended up taking Monday and Tuesday off workouts- not good- no excuses– I just didn’t do it 🙁  Despite not getting in my workouts, I was productive– we got school supplies on Monday and yesterday I got a ton of business stuff done, plus a massage.  Today, I will workout- not sure what I’ll do??? IT’S ACTUALLY RAINING RIGHT NOW!! …so a run outside may not be in the cards– I’ll probably do a lower body lifting day.

time to go PUT IN THE TIME,



Day #23-FIT tip- Measure up!! Grab a measuring cup and use it this week to measure your cereal, juice, pasta and rice…you’ll be amazed at how small a cup actually is.

Day #23-Featured ARTICLE-

5 Days!!!

5 days left until I am in CANCUN!!! I am so excited to get away from it all and just chill!

It’s a busy, busy time for me!! I honestly don’t think it’s possible for me to get any busier.  I have a running to do list that is growing faster than I can whittle it down.  I must remember to BREATHE and drink my water–left typing just now to chug a BIG 32oz. glass–One reason why I am more busy than my usual CHAOTIC state is that I am trying to “PRE-DO” all my work, etc…this week in prep for my vacation next week. Another reason why I feel so swamped is my 3 girls are actually off school today.

Here’s a list of some items I have been able to complete the past couple days:

  • Walmart trip- Major grociereis and school supplies for Gunner
  • Football Practice for Gunner
  • Got a plumber to fix my bathroom part of the way…the remainder needs to be completed AFTER the parts I ordered come in
  • Had a productive business meeting with a rep
  • Had some awesome coaching phone calls with Viki,Sherry and Kathy!!
  • Got in a great back workout with the hubby

Today has been a good day and the plan is to hit the gym now for a tan and a killer run!! I can’t believe it’s already day 12 of our “Thin in 30” contest~ It’s gone by SO fast!!! whoohoo!!! cheerleaders

Alrighty, Hope you have a Steallar Friday night!!
See ya tomorrow~

40 days to FIT!! Day 11~Hasher!

Hey all~ today I am a “Hasher“…I am writing this just after a hard interval run and I am drinking a BUD LIGHT Angel

Don’t expect to lose any weight following my example today, lol!

I am living it up as this morining I officially declared that I am on “VACATION” for the remainder of this week…but I am still compelled to visit my friend on the web~ I’d miss you if I didn’t!!  Today we had another family fun day…a good lunch out to eat Mexican and then to the mall to buy gym shoes for the kids.  Then we went to the open house at school to meet their teachers and get them set with school supplies.

My DD who is 7.5 years old lost her very first tooth today too~ I think the tooth fairy was getting worried that she’d never lose one!  That reminds me…I gotta find some money and remember to get it under her pillow at some point tonight.

OH~ and I got my photos back from my shoot today…they rock!!!  For you Rally Room members I have the link here to where you can see them on the web … for everyone else, you’ll just have to wait until I post them one at a time or on one of my public galleries 🙂

Love ya!!!
