New beginnings

This week in the mail i received the copy of Jillian Michaels 30 day shred I had ordered from Amazon (really fast shipping, it was here within 3 days of my order)-I picked up my free weights needed for the shred last night before hitting Magic Mike with the girls. I already had the yoga mat.

So now just need to start level 1 and hope to survive (it IS Jillian Michaels after all).

Lots going on this weekend - last night was Magic Mike - oh wow that's all I am going to say on that. Today is my nephew's 5th birthday party.  Tomorrow will be grocery shopping straightening the house and getting ready for the next work week. Weekends go by so fast..

More to come later! Have a great day y'all!!!

Things I am sick of..

The phrases:

That's what she said &  First World Problems.

That's what she said was funny for about 5 minutes - then people started saying it after EVERY SINGLE thing. Ugg over it already..

First World Problems - Uh yeah we live in a first world country (is both First and World supposed to be capitalized??) so there fore we DO have different issues that the third world countries do. Suck it up buttercup doesn't mean our problems are not problems they are just different problems.  People here are poor and lacking proper food and clothing as well, because they are in the USA does that make it a first world problem therefore tossed in the "irrelevant" pile as well? Yeah I know totally different issue than "my iPod won't load." I just hate the phrase, no matter how trivial or not a problem is a problem.


UG's and mini skirts - WTH made anyone think this was a good look? Its NOT stop it - you look like a moron who is weather channel challenged. Tip for you if its hot enough for a mini its to hot for ugly ass winter  boots and vise versa!

Capri's and dress boots - really?? What part of this made you think "appropriate office wear, oh hell appropriate combo at ALL?

Yoga pants and a blazer with dress shoes: I don't care what you wear yoga pants with they are still yoga pants.

Magnets on the side of a computer: I get a call PC is not acting properly - the machine is picked up and brought to my office - there is a magnet on the side of it ... KNOCK IT OFF ITS NOT GOOD FOR THE MACHINE. Then they can't figure out why they have lost data.  DUH FREAKING DUH.

I was going to add a happy section where I was upbeat and positive but I can't think of anything at the moment so maybe later...

So it's been over a year since I posted

and I could give a huge list of why its been that long but I am going to sum it up with ... I have been busy.

My adult daughter has come home to live with us and recently given birth to my grandson.  I am way to young to be called Grandma so I am Noni.  He is simply the cutest thing on earth at this very moment. No I am not biased, why do you ask? :-)

 I am having a blast getting to know this little individual.

A few things I have decided on changing by the end of this year.
1) Stop smoking once and for all.  I had stopped last year for 7 weeks - I had promised myself I was not going to smoke when the family went to Hawaii - and I didn't I started back up again 2 weeks after we came home.
2) I am going to take the weight that crept up after my hysterectomy and the aforementioned non-smoking attempt.  I WILL get back into my size 8 jeans AND be fit, not just thin I want to be lean and defined as well.
3) declutter again - maybe I can finally say bye-bye to the high school memories. I don't have a lot of clutter (cleaning my Mamaw's house after she passed cured that) but I think it really is time to say goodbye to some more things.
4) Dress better. I really want to be one of those pulled together women who's even casual look just sings. I achieve tired and frumpy a lot more than I want to admit.

So far that's the list.  #2 I am actively working on. I am watching what I eat and have been sorta working out - its nothing consistent so I am going to get better at that.  I have been doing a few 5k's (walks not runs) and have my next one coming up in July - its a night walk and should be a fricken blast.

#4 I have started as well - I got a few new tops this weekend. though I am not wanting to spend a ton on stuff that I am actively planning on not being able to wear for long! Tonight I am headed shoe shopping as what I wear to work daily is not helping the mental image I have going.  I either wear my tennis shoes or a pair of flips that were classified as sandals because they are leather and have decorative pieces on them - but really are flip flops.

Ever have a book that once you finish it you have no idea what to read next because nothing sounds good after the world you just finished. ...
