Could it be? Two posts in a row???

Well, look at me go.  Posting 2 days in a row, it's almost like I have a real blog.... Almost.

Anyway, did my first class today.  Well, first in this "challenge" anyway.  It was a hard one (for me), lots of planking, abs, etc.  It was hard, but I feel good for trying.  I need the tonight too, we'll see how I feel tomorrow though.  I'll try it again next week.

Fitness Challenge!!!

Ok ... first of all... Keeping up with my blog posts?  Fail.  I'm terrible.

Second of all, I'm going to make ANOTHER attempt at documenting my own personal fitness challenge.

So, today is Day 2 of the "Challenge du jour" (Ooohh la la!  Sounds fancy doesn't it?  ... spoiler alert, it's not).

Anyway!  This challenge I've extended to myself simply is to go to exercise 3 times a week.  Pretty simple, right?  We'll see.  My hope is that eventually, I will up that to 4 days a week, but let's start with one thing at a time. 

This is more of a "feeling good" challenge as opposed to a "weight-loss challenge".  I mean, I won't kid myself, I definitely would like to lose weight, but I'm trying to focus on the "how good it makes me feel" and hopefully, eventually I will also lose weight.  haha

So, I won't be sharing my weight on here.  I know... everyone's disappointed right?  But I will share how I feel after da…

Here's a disappointing update...

I know, why would I call a post that.  Who's going to want to read that?  Well, people, I'm all about honesty (spoiler alert, I'm not), and this post will be disappointing.  Why?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  What's that?  You didn't ask?  Well I'm going to tell you anyway. 

First disappointment? I did not do well with my personal fitness challenge.  I mean, I'm still active... kind of a victory, right?  Well, I won't get in to my failures/victories, but there you go.

Second disappointment?  I don't have much of an update to give you.  I'm not even sure what I will be writing about going forward.  It's a surprise from post to post.

I'm still an overtired mama... my little girl still rarely sleeps through the night more than a few nights in a row, but that's old news, how much can I write about that, right?

Most of what I tweet about is reality tv related... so my next post will likely be reality tv related... because there aren…

Not much of an update...

I said I would keep up with my blogging and that I will....

So I wrapped up Week 3 of my running on the weekend.  Last week was a slower week (physical activity wise), as I only ran on Monday, Friday and Saturday. I've been doing a run and walk combination, and Saturday's run had me do a stretch of 10 minutes at one point.  It was a struggle to push through, but felt amazing afterwards.  I wish I could remember the "after" feeling all the time so I would be more motivated to go and more motivated to push through.  I will say I'm impressed that I haven't given up when I'm running, there have been times that I'm feeling really sore and tired as I'm running and I just push through.  It gives me a real sense of accomplishment.

Next step?  Try to push myself to run today.  :)

It's all one day at a time.

Gotta get back in to the blogging....

So as all 3 of you who read this blog know, I'm not very good at keeping up with posts.  I think I need some kind of theme to keep me motivated to keep up with my blogging.  And a theme that is something different from my usual complaining/ranting about everything.

So, I've decided to blog about my current project.... my weight loss challenge/learning to run.

So I'm part of a group that has challenged each other to lose weight... as a tag along to that, I decided to learn to run.  I used to run back in the day (lol), so thought I would give it a try again.

I'll post periodically about my progress... I invite everyone to comment/ridicule/encourage me and/or share your own wellness/fitness/weight loss story. This will hopefully keep me motivated and give you another website to check each day besides Facebook, Twitter and Perez Hilton (I kid, I kid).

Anyway, I'm sure these posts will be thrilling, share with your friends!

Dreams of Travel....

We all have dreams.  Some of us have really selfless dreams like dreaming of happiness for all, etc.  My dreams are selfish.  I dream of lavish vacations for myself (and I guess my family can come too).  I kid, I kid (sort of).  Anyway, my family and I recently went on vacation, and, as with all of my vacations, I come home with high hopes of when we can travel again.  Although my dreams are of lavish vacations.  I often will spend time (I won't say how much time, because it's embarrassing) finding nice looking vacations at bargain prices.  I thought I would share some of my bargain vacations with you as a public service.  Perhaps I can live vicariously through one of you.  Or maybe I'll just provide you with a starting point for a dream of your own... or maybe this is pointless, but let's pretend this is helpful, shall we?

Bargain vacation #1: Orlando Holiday - May 11 to 18

If I were famous....

As I watch the Golden Globes last week, I was thinking about how often I hear celebrities complain about the paparazzi, and that made me think of some things I would do to "mess with" the paparazzi.  Here is my list:

- I would constantly rub my belly as I walked around in public, and randomly stop and look at baby clothes.

- I would stop in at lawyer's offices and come out with paper work for restraining orders, divorce, adoption... and I would flash it around as I walked past paparazzi.

- I would "close talk" with all of my friends... which would cause constant speculation about my relationships

- I would constantly change my accent when I was speaking close to the paparazzi - British, French, Spanish, German (although my accents would be horrible so no one would know what accent I was trying to do).  Then I'm sure they would constantly speculate that I was having some kind of breakdown or psychotic break.

- I would wear horribly matched clothes, do my hai…
