Yoga

I have had a pretty stiff back the last week or so. It has lead me to notice how amazingly tight and in flexible I am. Enough that bending down to tie my shoes in the morning is not easy. So, after much thought and research I have decided to try Yoga.

Has anyone had a good experience with it?  Let me know!

5 for five!!

Link Up 
Here is my Link Up with Jen and Jessica

Here is out last week went. 


Completed

Half Way/ So-So

Oopps!!

1. Do not eat fast food at all:  I ate at Sonic one night. It was dang gooooood though :) 

2. Finish ALL my Christmas shopping:  Done and Done! I got up Saturday morning and ran some major errands. Even have all my "Santa" Gifts picked out :) 

3. Complete week 2 of my couch to 10K:  I got 2 days in.  Not as good as I wanted. But 2 is better than nothing! 

4. Finish my bowl picks: Got both sets done and turned in

5. Find an outfit for Ashleys Wedding this weekend: While I was running errands on Saturday, I happen to find a super cute dress for the Wedding at Target. I got a lot of compliments on it. 

I think I did pretty decent for my first week. None of them I totally missed on. Lets see if I can do the same for this upcoming week. 


1. Stop saying 'I am sorry' as much. I have gotten into a really bad habit of telling people I am sorry. Even if I didn't do anything wrong! 

2. Enjoy my Birthday: My Birthday is Thursday!! I am super excited for it. I turn the big 27. That is way to close to 30 than I would like it to be

3. Get to week 3 of my running: Since I didn't finish Week 2 last week. I need to at least make a dent in Week 3. I would  love to be able to do all of it. We shall see

4. No Carbs for lunch. I have gained some weight. It doesn't make me happy at all. I love all the Christmas and Holiday foods. My goal is to not have any carbs for lunch. Lunch is the easiest meal for me to plan and take to work.   

5. Take pictures of all the Christmas decorations and make a post about it. 


If you want to see how some other people are doing on their 5 for five.. catch up with Julie and Megan. See how they are doing!

Christmas Traditions

I absolutely love the Christmas Season.  My family doesn't really have many "Traditions" for Christmas. My mom did ask me the other day if I have any good memories from our Christmas and I came up with a few. 
  • The smell of coffee. (My grandmother is the only one in the family to drink to drink it)
  • My dad always  trying to take pictures of everyone on Christmas Morning. 
  • These little chocolate balls my mom put in the bottom of my Stocking 
  • Our family dog getting a red soccer ball 
  • Cinnamon rolls as the go to breakfast! 

This year, I am starting a new one with my immediate family. Pinterest gave me the idea of course! Each person in my family gets a specific wrapping paper. I wrap all their gifts in that specific paper, but I put NO name tags on them.  On Christmas morning, I will put something in each persons stocking that is wrapped in their paper. Then they will know that all the presents under the tree, in that paper is theirs!!   I am really excited for it. I just hope I don't mess up and forget whose paper is for who!!

I am looking for some new Holiday Traditions to start. Does anyone have any good ones?

5 for five

Link Up 


So I have decided to join this 5 for five link up. It is hosted by Jessica  and Jen. I have some friends who have been doing it, and I decided to jump on the band wagon!! I make a list every day when I get to work of things I need to accomplish, so this will be good for my personal life!!.... here we go... 

5 Goals I want to accomplish this week. 

1. Do not eat fast food at all: I have been really trying to cut this out of my diet. 

2. Finish ALL my Christmas shopping: Friday is pay day. I am hoping that Friday Moring/Saturday Afternoon I can check off everything in my Christmas Planner

3. Complete week 2 of my couch to 10K: I am planning on running a 10 K in April sometime. 

4. Finish my bowl picks: I am in 2 bowl pick games. I need to finish these ASAP

5. Find an outfit for Ashleys Wedding this weekend: A friend of mine is getting married on Satuday. I am so excited to see her marry the love of her life!

About time..

 It seems as though my last post was October 23rd. That was quite some time ago!! I can't believe that I haven't posted anything. Actually that is kind of a lie. I can. I have just been so busy with the Holiday Season! I am a HUGE fan of Christmas. Partially because my birthday is a couple days before it :)

Well whats new in the last couple months you ask? Sadly, I don't have much to report. I have hopped back on the work out train. I chose to get on the slow moving train. I have cut back on eating those dang Sonic Reese Blast (with no whip), fast food, and the biggest of all... I have cut out Dr. Peppers. Out of all of those, the Sonic Reese Blast have been the hardest to cut out!!

I ran the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving with my family. It was a 5K. Didn't have a great race time, but I didn't try to hard either. I did realize that after the race, I wasn't too tired. I was sore (that is what happens when you don't work out for months) but I wasn't "challenged". So I got to thinking, I have run quite a few 5K races in the last 2 years. Its time to move up. So I have challenged myself to a 10K. I downloaded a new app, (what in the world would we do without apps now a days?) and started from Week 1, Day 1. My end goal is to run in the Blue Bell 10K in April. I had originally planed for another one. But my run-happy roommate wants to run the Blue Bell one. Why this one you ask? Ohh, because in Texas we have an amazing ice cream called Blue Bell. The race is in the hometown of Blue Bell. After the race, each runner is allotted as much Blue Bell Ice Cream they can eat.... hence, why I have said yes to running the Blue Bell Race in Brenham. (Brenham is hilly. I am nervous)

I did get a chance to go out of town to Fort Worth to catch TCU play Oklahoma last weekend. While there I got to see my best friend and hang out with her for a while.  She got a new kitten the other day, and I fell in love with her. Makes me miss when Blue was small like that.


The Boyfriend and I 

My Bestie, Skye, and I.

Sold out crowd at The Carter!

Tried the panorama function 

Other side of the stadium 

Anthony and I walked around the outside of the stadium at halftime. That is the backside of the score board. 

Lez... cutest thing I have seen in a while! 

Look at her big eyes! 



Besides that, I have just been busy buying Christmas gifts and decorating our apartment and the boyfriends house. I will have to do another post with all the pictures of the decorations!

Hope everyone is enjoying this Holiday Season!
