Tuesday Tidbits

Well, things have been moving right along here in good old Coral Springs.  Nothing too exciting to report about...work has been about the same the last couple of weeks-dull and boring.  I am ready for a change but this lovely recession has not helped speed up the process of change by any means so I keep plugging away until something worthwhile comes along that will encourage me to leave. It's definitely time though!

Other than work, Brian and I have been doing some work with the patio to spruce things up a bit.  We got new furniture at a superb deal and also picked up a bunch of flowers for some added color...hopefully I can keep these buggers alive!  I also got a patio tomato plant as I love, love, love tomatoes and am anxiously awaiting their arrival, in about 90 days or so.  I also started a very small herb garden with some parsley, basil and rosemary.  Once I see how often we use it, I will probably add some more herbs to the mix. 

My fitness course has been going in spurts but I have managed to get 2-3 chapters done so far but all that lovely medical terminology takes time to soak up so I've been plugging away slowly; that and there is no deadline except the one I put on me...which can be moved back at any time, of course.

Wedding plans are in a pretty good place. As for this whole buff bride thing, I've been a total slacker. The goal is to get back on the exercise wagon within the next week. I go for a couple days, then take a week break and this has been the cycle for quite some time.  I think I need to push through a solid 5 days or so and get myself used to it again.  I blame the heat and humidity..and cupcakes.

Time to grill some pork chops and read a bit more.  Hope you're all enjoying a lovely Tuesday!

Tuesday tidbits

It's only Tuesday? Really?!  Gosh, I swear I thought the work day would never end today.  The morning was okay but the afternoon just kept dragging on. At least I can chill at home with a scrumptious beer or two and unwind for a bit. 

I've been a good girl with my exercise the last few days.  I've been on an exercise bike kick lately.  I just hop on there for 45 min to an hour and peddle away. Of course, I can't do so without a myriad of distractions, i.e. my numerous magazines, the nook, another paperback book (in case I don't want to read any nook selections) and I usually have a tv program going on in the background as well.  What? I NEED it all!  I've also done some hula hooping and sit ups as well.  I really want to start back into a running routine...except for that whole starting part of it.  It's so friggin hot and humid out for starters and, having been out of the loop for the past few months, minus a run here and there, I don't want to start from scratch again cuz that sucks.  Can't I just return to my running prowess post-half marathon status? Please??

Other than that, I am busy reading up on my fitness course and trying to decide which one(s) of my Bucket list items I want to cross off next.  For the record, the list on this site is the small version. I think there are another 20 or so on the main list. Man, I have a lot to accomplish!

On that note, I think I'll go do some reading/hula hooping and see where the evening goes from there.  I'd like to say I'll go for a run but chances are I won't be feeling it by 9pm when it's cool enough to venture out there.  Never know though...

Back Again

Wow, it's really been nearly two months since I last wrote on here? Huh! Time has certainly flown by. I think I needed a break from it all....either that or it was just a really boring couple of months :)

So, what's been happening lately?  Well..

  • been busy working on the wedding plans. Nearly all of the big ticket items are done and now it's just the little things to iron out so that is coming along pretty well.
  • just came back from a week's vacation in good ole Chi-town.  Brian and I spent some time with my future in-laws and some friends over the week.  We had a good time, even with the crappy weather for much of the duration of the trip. What can you do but grin and bear it!
  • have watched a lot of the Real Housewives. They have 3 different shows going on and all I've got to say is that it is perfectly clear that money does NOT buy class.
I'm sure there are other things I've been up to here and there but nothing super exciting. Tomorrow I plan to start up my exercise regimen again cuz I feel out of shape after a wishy-washy month of exercise attempts.  Maybe I'll even start eating right too!  I'm also taking a fitness course so that will hopefully encourage me to stay away from the cupcakes as well...at least during the week :)

Time to relax. We got in late last night so it's been a long day.  Later gators
