Babysitting

Standard

So tonight my boss at the photography studio that I work at, asked me to babysit his two children while he and his wife went out. I didn’t have anything else planned and probably would have just ended hanging out and watching movies with friends. So, I decided to give up a Friday night for a little extra cash. The kids are really good, not hard to handle at all. The boy is 9 and the girl is 2. They are saying the funniest things. It’s been a pretty entertaining night! I feel gross though b/c I ate pizza for the first time in forever and I’m now definitely regretting that decision. I think I’ll stick with my health stuff over that. Lol

Lazy day :)

Standard

So, today is my first day off in I don’t know how long and I was planning to get lots of sleep especially since it stormed last night! That always makes me sleep better! Well, not last night! I went to bed at midnight and woke up at 7:20! I didn’t actually get out of bed until 8 though.
Anyway, I’ve decided that my nails need a new color. I painted them pink the other day, but bought a fuscia color yesterday and can’t wait to use it.
On another note, it takes a lot for me to be lazy, but I am in need of some serious motivation today! Trying to decide on a fun workout for the day. Maybe a jog or some strength training?? Any ideas for some quick motivating tips? I wanted to do a yoga class somewhere today to just take a break since I’ve been going hard all week, but none of the gyms around here offer them today :/

I love today!

New Haircut!

I was SO nervous to get my haircut today b/c i haven’t had layers in it in so long, but I let Carolyn do what she wanted and i LOVE it! She cut 2 inches off before she ever even put layers in it! I had let it grow SO long! I went to Zumba tonight and my ponytail was so short I couldn’t believe it!

Also, I got a call from Lifeway today and they offered me a job! At first I was kinda happy, but more nervous. Just because I don’t wanna be super stressed this year. Working 32 hour weeks (at least) plus 18 hours of school and all of the studying and work that goes along with that is going to be a lot, but hopefully I’ll be able to handle it. I’m actually excited about school this year?! I have no idea why though. Maybe because I’m getting into my interesting classes and am almost finished! Only 3 semesters left!

So, on a completely random note…Something I learned last night: I was with my friend Tiffany after a workout and we went by winn*dixie to get food. Come to find out they have fresh food on SUPER sale at night b/c they’re wanting to get rid of it. Granted not a whole lot of it is healthy, but I did manage to find a couple of things that I am okay with eating. I got A whole rottiserie chicken for $7 that will last me for like a week! and some mashed potatoes for $1! If you’re a college student, then you can understand my excitement about this…or even if you are a health freak you can understand my excitement. I get so tired of spending so much money at grocery stories just b/c healthy stuff has gone SO up in price. Since living on my own I’ve learned the value of a dollar for sure! Paying bills is not any fun at all. But, as weird as this sounds I’m kind of enjoying taking care of myself. It makes me feel so much more responsible than I’ve ever felt.

I’ve just recently started trying to cook more. Nothing beyond grilled chicken and veggies really, but I’m trying to venture out more. So, if you have any yummy, HEALTHY recipes please let me know 🙂

Hair cut day!!

Standard

Ok, so I’m getting a MUCH needed hair cut today! Hair cuts always make me super nervous though because I love my long hair and I’m always scared the hairdresser won’t do what I want. But, I know my hair person this time so I trust that she’ll do a good job. Still a little nervous tho! I’ll upload pics of it later. I attached a picture of my hair now. It’s all the way down my back!!

Finally getting the hang of this (maybe?)

Standard

Ok, so I think I’m finally getting the hang of this blogging thing! Of course, there are several little details that I wanna figure out how to do. Like the font/color of my writing on my posts, how to find and follow people’s blogs that I like, how to put my tags on my profile. This stuff I have yet to figure out :/ However, I’m getting my ipad in next week and one of the first things that I’m going to do is facetime my cousin and get her to help me! She’s smart with all of this stuff!

So, anyway, on to another subject! I want to start training for the disney princess half marathon that’s in February! I was actually supposed to start training monday, but because of getting a late start driving back to Mobile I didn’t get home until around 5ish and so then I had my turbokick class at 6:30 and after that I was so worn out that I didn’t even get to run! So, hopefully next Monday I can officially start training and will finish just in time for the half!! 😀 I’m so excited about getting back in shape with my running and everything. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to just run as long and as far as I want to b/c of my ankles breaking last year. It has been frustrating, but I just got a new pair of Brooks so I think I’m good to go!!

before running last saturday with mama! wearing my super cute sweaty~band that my cousin, Erin made me!!
