I’m on vacation this week, and that’s the reason you’re seeing a post.
I spent Monday vegging out with some SATC.
Then on Tuesday, Stephanie picked me up and we went to lunch. After that, I killed it in the clearance section at Ulta.
Those fabulously colored liquid eyeliners were only $2.50 and the eyelashes were only $1.99!!!
My Mom is coming over on Thursday to help me make a turkey. It’s something I’ve never done, and I’m slightly intimidated at the process.
Cut to me gagging while removing the bag of “innards.”
I went out on Saturday night with my girls in preparation of a lazy week off.
I really must keep better track of my nose when out drinking. It’s always MIA in pictures.
We went to “The Cove” which is a bar with a fun tropical like atmosphere, which doubles as a child’s birthday party venue during the day.
I went hard that night!
4:15 am bedtime, sleepover at Kim’s house, and walking of shamin’ it back the the bar to pick up my car in last nights outfit and way too high shoes for a Sunday afternoon.
I could feel the judging eyes of the mothers, and not to mention the 4 year olds. They’re the worst of all.
And speaking of the shoes…
I should have known the shoe swap was inevitable, I mean, those shoes only get me through 3 out of the 5 bars on our Vegas bar crawl in May.
So between marathon TV watching sessions, and finally making a dent in the stack of Borders Bargain books, I’m having a great week off!
I know I’ve been MIA for a long, long time. It has everything to do with the fact that eating right and exercising has been eluding me. Wahhh wahhhhh!!! The spinning sneakers that Adam bought me for my birthday are still in the box. FYI: my birthday was in March.
A ton of stuff has happened since the last time I blogged.
There was my birthday, then Adam’s, then Dyngus Day. I went back to Vegas with my girl Stephanie. I went to some new restaurants, saw some movies, did some drankin’, and did a whole lotta ish that I normally would have blogged about.
I guess I kept thinking that no one wanted to read about that kinda stuff; I’m supposed to be a Healthy Living Blogger.
But ya know what? I like blogging, even if it’s just about my drunken weekends, and if you don’t want to read it, then DON’T! Lucky for me, my blog name has been removed from the “Healthy Bloggers” list and added to the “Possible Alcoholics” one.
Adam and I went out last weekend to celebrate my cousin Tim’s birthday.
The Mustache is back!!
I’ve been told that the mustache is a trendy new thing right now. Like it’s super hipster for beautiful ladies to rock the ‘stache.
So I guess we’re all super hipster. And so is Jack Daniels, although he’s been rocking the ‘stache for a little while longer than us.
On a completely unrelated note, am I the only one who is DEVASTATED about Kristen Wiig leaving (well, already left) Saturday Night Live?
OHMYGOD! All of the best skits involved her!! All of em!! I hate, hate, hate when people leave Saturday Night Live in their prime to move on to bigger and better things. I’m selfish, and I want to laugh at the Target Lady, Gilly,Kat of Garth and Kat, Penelope, etc, for all eternity.
It’s also rumoured that Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis are also leaving. WTF, Lorne Michaels? Why can’t everyone just stay on the show forever? WHY???
Can I get an AMEN Darrell Hammond?
So, I’m happy to report that I have been doin it and doin it and doin it well.
Weird, I totally do the exact same thing at the gym….
I’ve been getting up and going to the gym before the sun is a shinin’.
It feels so good, and I am super proud of myself…
With the incredible burst of energy I have in the morning now, my brain is really awake and thinking before 7am. And I have been thinking.
As a woman, the main reason I work out is to look good (to all my ladies, can I get an AMEN?). And I have spent the past, hmmm….10 years worrying about my weight. Fluctuating between being a gym psycho and a lazy ass.
It’ s so important to me to find that balance. And with finding that balance come acceptance.
At what point in my weight loss journey, do I just accept that it is what it is and be happy with it?
That sounds kind of negative, eh? But what I’m really trying to say is that I need to get to a point where I am happy with myself. And it doesn’t need to be a certain number on the scale, or specific digit(s) on my pants or even what I “should” be. I need to find a weight where I can be happy with myself.
My Happy Weight.
But how do we get there?
Ok, I’m done with the heavy, I’ll let you know when I get there, and how amazing it is.
But for now, some random thoughts to share…
1). There’s a girl at my gym that looks like Ryan Reynolds. Straight talk, it’s true, and I may have found myself on more than one occasion really staring at her, but I haven’t gotten caught yet!
2). This new wave of “GO ME” am workout outs, has me looking like a walking “before” Proactive advertisement. G- R- DOUBLE O-S!
3). Pinaccle Vodka now makes a “Key Lime Pie Whipped” vodka. It’s amazing. Well, it is now. I haven’t really gone on a KLP fueled bender yet. But wait, my friends, just you wait. Fingers crossed I don’t have to add it to that nasty little group of “Things I can never drink again with out instantly getting the dry heaves”.
Surprisingly enough, Tequila is NOT in that group.
I didn’t get to the gym yesterday because I had a dentist appointment.
Rest assured, my teeth are fine.
But I was pretty pleased with myself that I went to the gym Thursday morning too.
So pleased that I had to BLAST it on all social media networks!
Last night, we had our friends, Julie and Craig, over for some good times. We started the night with some drinks…
Then we headed out to dinner at Danny’s.
After dinner we came back to our house for more drinks and GAME NIGHT!!
We played Scattergories…
The object of the game is to score the most points by uniquely naming objects, within a set of categories, given an initial letter, within a time limit.
Ok, so say we roll an “A”, and within 2 minutes you have to come up with different answers, all starting with “A”.
Seems easy enough, right?
Yeah, apparently not to this gal, but I caught on for round 2.
I didn’t come close to winning, but it’s all good.
After the game, there was this….
Yeah, delicious peanut butter pie.
It was so, so kind of them to leave us the leftovers.
Heading to the gym to burn that baby off, then I’ve gotta get started on some making some Super Bowl snacks for tomorrow!
