rollin’

This week has not exactly gone to plan– the time prior to a trip never does, right?

So yesterday I got my nails, hair and teeth whitening done…I wore this dress- it’s 20 years old– back in style and fits me better now than ever!

BUT, I didn’t get in my workout So today I’ll double up- by getting in a run and my lifting both along with all my packing etc…

I am so ready to roll on out of here to VEGAS!! It’s fun to have another one of my “GOALS” finally be here!!

Busier than ever!  How does that happen??? I love being busy, but seriously I need my Rally Room time!

Here’s our contest post for today~

I certainly am fired up for the FINISH of this contest. I realized last night that I’ve worked out EVERY DAY in April, and I’m not even trying to!! It’s been a good streak.  NOW I’m tempted to shoot for doing it ALL THE DAYS of APRIL?  I’ve successfully completed a couple challenges like this in past years (EVERY DAY IN MAY), so maybe I should just GO FOR IT?~!

Anyhow, as I said I am BUSY and BEHIND on so many projects it’s killing me! I hate feeling like I’m not living up to expectations (mostly MY EXPECTATIONS).  I need to have a very productive next 2 weeks!

Yesterday I ended up having lunch with my MIL and SIL, then had a dentist appt, then a chiro appt, then I had to buy stuff for my bunny, got home with some food for the kids, then got in my leg workout prior to heading out of town to the twins’ softball game.  Finally got home at 9:30 to do another round of “feedings” then finally  TUCK INs and then some alone time with the hubs.

I was EXHAUSTED and kinda in pain after the crazy day!  My teeth hurt, my legs hurt, and body hurt from my chiropractic adjustment– He really cranked on my back this time!

My leg workout was the first “real” one I’ve done since my neck went out 2 weeks ago- I’ve been focusing on learning how to place the bar in a bit of a better/lower position on my back during squatting. Even old dogs need to learn new tricks at times!!

Squats- 45×10, 95×10, 135x10x2sets Deads- 45×20, 95×15, 95×20– kept this kinda light just to be safe Knee Extensions- 5 sets of these- some singles and some together…pretty heavy LUNGES!!: between sets I did various varieties for well over 100 total- side lunges, box lunges, jumping lunges (HOLY HARD!), foward barbell lunges, low sliding side to side lunges

I also did some ABS in there…overall a good workout, expecting an even better one in a couple days!!

I’m on the attack again with another BUSY day in store!!

Got my TO Do list written and am planning to hammer it out before I have to go to town again today for an orthodontist appt and DATE with my DD in celebration of her ALL “A” report card!

My weight is back up a tish to 128, but very good considering it’s HORMONE TIME! Cycle day 24 today

I’m going to end this now in order to take some time to catch up with all the AMAZING BLOGS from my SWEET BUFFSISTERS here!! LOVE YOU BUNCHES

I am not a super hero

I surely am not a super hero but that doesn’t stop me from trying to fly!!

I have been totally humbled and at peace with the fact I can only do so much in each day….and it’s high time for me to hire some help so I can increase my productivity without killing myself!  With that said, I’ve begun the process of “scaling back” my expectations for each day.  My initial approach is going to be to write out my daily “to do’s” then figure out what 1/4 of it is the highest priority item(s). Accomplishing any more that that is a bonus!

This trip to Vegas is so exciting and a huge blessing for many reasons.

  • I get to spend some time with the huby
  • we got an unexpected visit from gramma (the babysitter)
  • I got several important things done that I wouldn’t have made time to do otherwise- tires, oil change, carpets cleaned, teeth cleaned and a cavity filled
  • I get to go to the Olympia and meet some of the industry players
  • I get to be personally trained- I’ve always said I want to be the trainee vs. the trainer at some point in my life

It’s all good and very exciting.

This morning has already been productive, I’ve bought my sister a Birthday present, I’ve taken out the trash, I’ve prepped some items to be shipped and I’m now off to do my devotions and at 9 I get to talk to our Shana!!  She’s a doll!!

I’ll certainly be checking in from Vegas~ Love you all!!

Bye, bye!!!

Band Blasting Saturday!


Well, I was TREATED today~
Fist thing this morning I got my hair done, Miss Christy Lemke, at Salon Athena, does it so nicely and so fast. I got some highlilghts, low lights, a nice wash, a good trim, a blow dry and style all in just 80mins!
Then, I got a wonderful facial along with my eyelashes dyed black; I have never had this done before~ kinda cool! I could almost get away just curling my lashes and going without wearing mascara now.
the THIRD thing I did was to get my teeth Whitened at the salon~ it takes just 15 mins and really works well…I did the same procedure (White Science) in September and can’t go back home whitening strips (THEY make my teeth so sensitive).
Hope you had a good day too.
