A forgotten lunch

I was SO amped for my lunch.

Like so excited because it was left overs from lunch yesterday and the left overs included some of the best fish tacos with corn salsa I have ever had. Plus apple sauce ( i have been on an apple sauce kick lately)

I was amped.

Until I got all the way to school and realized that my my delicious lunch was 40 minutes away on my kitchen counter.

Happy Monday to me.

Anyways here I am on tuesday and I have actually had a pretty good day thus far. My coffee was on point and i actually remembered my lunch. I am resisting the chocolate in my kids candy box and dreaming (okay that is a stretch) but thinking about leg day and few difference exercises I want to try.

So i am going bring you my Tuesday Musings aka a ramble of thoughts in my brain.

11 weeks. that is how many weeks until the cruise....AHHHH :) I cannot wait. Literally I cannot freaking wait.

That also means 9 weeks of school until i am out for sweeeeet summertime! 8 more mondays, bring it onnnn.

This weekend we went to D's parents and his niece was there. I AM OBSESSED with her. It was so gorgeous out so we got to play outside and I could just eat her up.

New mani. I feel like this is the last time I can go dark before being bright & cheery for spring & summer. I am ready for the brightness though.

I need to clean my car. like yesterday. It is not necessarily messy, but it needs a major vacuum and wipe down.

Anyone else excited for Bethanny to be back on RHONY. I might actually watch this season..

alright that is all i got. what are you musing on?
Happy Tuesday!

Things I will never love

First of all thank you so much for all of your sweet words from yesterdays post! You guys are so sweet and it makes me so good that I have people that are happy for me. So for that I thank you.

Hope everyone had a wonderful St. Pats Day. I love to celebrate any holiday and dressing for a theme is my JAM! I live for that shiz. I of course wore a green dress and we did a few saint patty's day things in my room! Plus D and I went out to dinner for our anniversary at the place of our first date awwww :)

BUT now I am back to reality of a non-holiday day. At least it's wednesday which means only one more day til Friday and that is something to celebrate.

Alright on to today's post.

Now I love A LOT of things. Chocolate, wine, bravo..I mean my family, D, Friends... But there are also A LOT of things I do not love.

like at all.

These things include but are not limited to

-Cold Toilet Seats

-Socks while sleeping. HELLO my toes need to breathe

-Charlie Horses in the middle of the night, or really just in general.

-Putting my sweaty sports bra back on after I tan after my workout. Yes, I know tanning is bad. I know, I know. 

- Being allergic to avocado. I want to eat all the guac and also not look like an idiot for having to check and double check there is NO avocado in my sushi.

-Having to wash my hair. Sorry it's overrated.

-Chipped toenail polish, even though since i have been running/wear flats to work, my toenails are ALWAYS chipped. I hate myself.

-Will Ferrel. He isn't funny.

What things will you never love?

Seven-Hundred and Thirty

Seven-Hundred and Thirty.


730 days.

That is how many days I have known D.

Two years ago I met my handsome man and my life has been changed ever since. Last year I shared how we met and all that jazz, so I won't bore you with that story again (even thought it is one of my favorite stories).

Instead today I just want to share words from my heart and I love letters so I thought I would write one.

Dear D,
 I  never knew I could love someone like I love you. I never thought anyone would love me the way you love me. Some days it feels like we have been together forever and other days it feels like we met yesterday. You are the part of me that I never knew was missing. I used to be afraid of the future. I was unsure of where my life would be and what it would look like. Of course I cannot say exactly how it will be, but what I do know is that you are a part of it. Your are my other half and I cannot wait to see what our future holds. I am so thankful every day, that I walked into that restaurant and sat down next to you. I cannot imagine how life would be without you, and I know I could search a million years and never meet someone like you. The last two years have been wonderful. I know we have our arguments but it only makes us better and knowing I can share my feelings makes me feel safe and makes my love for you even stronger. You are the peanut butter to my jelly. Cheers to the next year my love. I cannot wait to see what adventures we get into.

love you more,

P.S I am sorry I always forget to turn off the lights in the bathroom in the morning always. I swear I will try harder.

4:30 am

HELLO Friends!

It's Thursday which means I am here to share a new healthy choice I am making. Thursday has just become my day to share what I am doing to live a healthier life. If you missed any of these posts, In have talked about resting, protein, boot camps and more.

This week I did something I NEVER thought I would do. EVER.

I set my alarm for 4:30am to go to the gym.

let that sink in.

As I posted yesterday this week was parent teacher conferences, which are after school, and I have been staying late. I skipped monday (WHICH WHHHHHATTTT? I never skip mondays, but i was so wiped out I couldn't do it #excuses). Well Tuesday was my late night (my last conference didn't start til 7:30 and then i have about a 40 minute drive aka I would be home super late) and I knew I wasn't going to make it to the gym after.

I am trying to hit the gym 6 times a week and since I already skipped Monday I knew I had to get my butt there tuesday. So I set the alarm.

and guess what?
I actually got up (albeit at 4:35) and got myself to the gym.  I got my run and my lifting in all before 6am. It was great. Okay I say that tongue in cheek because it was NOT great leaving my warm bed, but it felt so great staying dedicated and knowing all day I had already killed it at the gym.

I don't know often this is going to happen, but I know I  can and will do it again.

How are you making yourself healthier this week?

Just like Usher


I finish up my parent teacher conferences today (which is why this is the first day i have posted this week). It has been long 12-hour days this week, but I see the light. I just gotta make it through tomorrow and then I have a four day weekend!


So anyways since it is wednesday and I love Melissa, I am linking up with her for Confessions today.

I confess

....it has been so rainy and dreary that the fact that its suppose to be sunny makes me more excited than it should

.... I cannot wait to sleep in on Friday

..... 89 days til the cruise!! I have been stalking pinterest looking at what to pack and tips for people going on cruises! I am too excited!

.... I hate the word toenail. The thought of toe nails, especially boys' makes me instantly gag.

....While I am so excited for spring/summer the thought of actually having to keep up with shaving my legs actually exhausts me. Poor D.

What are you confessing?

My Friday 5


Welp the week is over and I have spent most of it at home because of the snow.
I did mention to be productive...sort of. I mean I blogged ALL 5 DAYS this week. WHHHHATTT??

BUT I am so excited for this weekend. D and I have plans with friends and there is SUPPOSE to be good weather! The snow can get out & bring on the sun.


okay onto my 5 for Friday 

1. This  cover by Ed Sheeran. I saw this on Melissa's page a while ago and I am still obsessed.

2. The weather for next week

I mean really, YES YES & YES.

3. Real Housewives of Melbourne. I didn't watch the premier last night, because well..Scandal on Netflix. But I did watch last season while I was running/doing school stuff yesterday and holy cow..these women. Anyone else watch/have thoughts?

4. I have crossed to the dark side. I have been drinking coffee everyday. I am a coffee drinker. My perfect combo- Black coffee, 2/3 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk & a tsp of agave syrup. I am obsessed.

5. This mani. I am channeling spring and my inner romantic.

Happy Friday Friends!!

Mixing it Up

Happy Thursday!
Is it spring yet? I mean really?

So I am back with how I am making myself healthier to share what I did this week. Last week I shared how I started boot camp (which was actually canceled yesterday BUT being the dedicated group we are & since school is canceled we rescheduled for today--so if the roads are fair I am heading out to do that this morning before the gym tonight)

gettin' shit done.

Anyway so I was a very gungho running girl. I was building my speed and stamina. That's all i did pretty much for cardio. Just run run run run.

Which is great. I am going to continue to run a lot.

But i need to mix it up. I feel like i have hit a mini plateau and I want to mix it up for my bod to get over this plateau. I have been doing stairs on Thursdays for a few months but i know that isn't enough.

My plan is to do stairs two days a week and uphill walk another day. I have been putting the treadmill on the highest incline, 15, and then walking from anywhere from a 3.8-4.1 for 45 minutes. It is a HUGE  calorie burner plus so so so so good for those glutes. Then I will run for the other 3 days. (I have been trying to make it to the gym 6 days a week, some weeks I only make it 5).

That is my plan anyway. Getting out of my comfort zone of running (which WOAHHHHH when did running become a comfort zone, that is still insane to me) is needed and I know it. I gotta trust this process and try new things to see what works for me!

Here is to continuing to kill it and making changes!
