About Me ...

Some things you may, or may not, know about me.

I am a mom.

I love to dance...not dance it up in the club because I don't frequent those, but love to do choreographed dance. Sometimes I think I should have majored in dance and minored in nursing. Instead, I majored in Business Management and have a career in the mortgage biz.

When I love a song, I will replay that song over and over and over again. My kids hate when I do this. Seriously. They will yell, "AGAIN" at me. Everytime. My youngest starts howling like a dog when I do this. It's quite amusing. And he's really good.

I have six sisters. This is one reason I am looking forward to "going back home." To be closer to some of those sisters.

I get major anxiety. I don't take medication. I know how to calm myself down. Thankfully.

I always get "great" ideas that turn out to be not so "great."

I love to volunteer. Need to do this more.

I am scared to death of snakes and tornadoes. Yet, I live in the Lone Star State!

I don't eat seafood. Any kind.

I fall asleep every single night with my tv on and one of two of the same movies playing every night. I reckon this will change soon though.

I like to travel but scared of flying. I do fly but I get ... anxiety. It is getting better, though.

I've only been to two different countries. I have a list of places I want to go.

I have never lived outside of Texas. I plan on this changing once my youngest graduates high school.

There's a little peek into me. There's still a lot left and I'm trying to figure myself out.

Have a good weekend!

Ten Things Thursday

Hi and Happy Thursday!

I'm very happy we are one day closer to Friday and the weekend.

Today, I wanted to share 10 things I would love to do by 12/31/2016. Hard to believe we a little more than half way there. Crazy how time just flies by.

1. Deepen my relationship with the Lord.
2. Run .. Don't walk .. a 5k and 10k. I still want to run a full marathon ... sometime.
3. Obtain a fitness certification - this is already in the works and will be happening very soon.
4. Go on a weekend trip by myself. I am hoping I can tie this into a fitness certification.
5. Read 6 books. I wanted to read 12-15 this year but that has happened.
6. Take a cooking class.
7. Volunteer - I am hoping when we move I can do something and include my boys. I have an idea and I think it will be awesome!
8. Blog more and be consistent.
9. I want, okay Need .. to lose about 40 pounds.
10. Run/Walk 15 miles/week. - of course this is prepping me for that 5k/10k .. right?!
11. Take my boys somewhere cool ..

**I added 11 since #10 was tied to #2. :)

Hope everyone has a great rest of your day!

Weekend and Weekly Workouts

Happy Sunday to ya folks!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a nice Sunday.

Prayers for Orlando. When will the violence end? So senseless, tragic, and just sad.

My boys were with their dad and I got some time to clean out, pack some stuff up, and sell some things! It was, overall, an accomplished weekend. I feel like the boys will be shocked when they come home to no dining room table, no shelves, and no dishes. Paper plates it is for the next few weeks.

I wanted to share my workout goals for the week. I'm not going to be too ambitious because when that happens...I fail. Or I hurt myself.

So with that being said .. here are my workout plans for the week:

Monday: Barre Code and Brawl (similar to a kickboxing .. you know.. jab, cross, jab, knee)
Tuesday: Barre Code
Wednesday: TBC (similar to a bootcamp with a little HIIT mixed in) and my personal trainer.
Thursday: Barre Code and Zumba (haven't done Zumba in a minute .. okay .. like thousands of minutes.
Friday: Barre Code and Turbo Kick (cannot wait for this.)

My new favorite class, High Fitness, won't be back in action until 6/21. This is a wonderful, fun, high energy cardio class.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!
