Get Moving

Today is Day 3 of 90 KickAss Days.

Yesterday I walked for 26 minutes 
(5 minutes more than Wednesday which made me happy)!  
Yes, I still wussed out and walked around and around my garage because it's in the 20's here and it's really dark where I live and I'm scared of monsters.....

Today I worked out with Becca on the Wii.  
Phew.  I kept up for almost all of it.  
There were two exercises I couldn't do very well but I walked in place during them and during the cool down.  
I am really proud of myself.

Reasons I love working out with my skinny friends:
They inspire me
They don't mock me
They encourage me through the whole workout
They praise me when I'm done

Okay, I'm sure that my fat friends would totally do all those things as well 
but I didn't work out with them today, so there.
Plus, there's only room for one fat chick making jokes during a workout. 

So, you can head over to Twitter and join us using the hashtag #90kickassdays if you want!
I feel really accomplished working out these last three days.
Hope you join us or at least get moving!

That is all.

90 Days

Once again, Cyn over at The Racy Redhead inspires me to get my butt moving!

1/9/13: Day One of 90 Kick Ass Days
I didn't read this until almost 8pm last night so I walked around and around my garage for 21 minutes which is about all I can do right now.  I'd walk outside but it's cold and I'm a wuss! 

I hope you'll pop onto Twitter and keep me (and Cyn) updated with your progress using the hashtag #90kickassdays!

That is all.

Although this is not a picture of my dog, it might as well be!

She has decided that she is a part time guard dog.  By part-time, I mean that she barks when she wants to! 
She's great though!  We adopted her at the end of November from the Whatcom Humane Society.
She is a 3 year old short hair chihuahua and is absolutely magnificent.

She is sweet, loving, nervous, needy, and such a delight.
This is her and I today while Kevin made his first juice (more on that soon).
Isn't she pretty?

Check out your local shelter, save a life, and make your family even better!

That is all.

2013? Really?

How is it even possible that it is 2013?
I know, I've been all "Happy New Year" and "Wahoo" but I'm stunned.


I've got a teenager now.  She was just a little girl starting to walk and talk.
Now, she's a young woman with her own opinions on life.

Cherish every moment that you get in life.
You don't know what is going to happen tomorrow.
Love your family and friends like you won't be seeing them again.
Hug your kids.  Don't be too busy to listen to them tell you about their day.

That is all.

Today's post has been postponed until tomorrow because my brain is tired.

That is all.

Happy New Year

Welcome to 2013 everyone!

I wanted to let everyone know (and thank you for the well wishes everyone) that my dad is back home and doing fine.  No stint was needed in his heart and he just needs to work on a few things.  He's feeling great and is back to his normal self. We all appreciate the positive energy that you all created!

Yesterday was a great day with dad's birthday and doing well during the heart cath, New Year's Eve, and Shanny's birthday!  For her dessert this year, she chose Unicorn Poop.  Yep.  It's one of the zillion reasons that we love her like we do.  Here is a before and after shot of the unicorn poop.

I don't do resolutions on new year's because I try to improve all year long.  
I do know that this year I'd like to get serious about my health, my blog, and my businesses.
I always seem to have some excuse why I haven't done these things but it boils down to laziness.
I'd like to really stop being so lazy.
So that is what I shall work on.

I hope that your 2013 is the best that you can make it!!

Blessings, Light, and Love to you all for a new and better year.

That is all.
