I Fail Everything

So … I haven’t been doing 30 Day Shred. I did like four days and stopped. I have failed.

But on a happier note, I’ve noticed I’m quicker when playing flag football. Running every other day this past summer definitely helped. I just wished I was still able to run. Time and it being unsafe (my mum’s words) has made running hard.

These are excuses, I know. But I am still active so that’s better than nothing.


Please tell me why someone searched for “bent over and rammed” and ended up on my site? I promise this is not a porn site. There is no nakedness here.


Also, every few days someone is literally searching for me (and spelling it wrong!). I hope it’s not anyone I know because I didn’t tell you about this for a reason. If you read this and you’re not someone I know, please tell me so I’m not paranoid. Confused smile

Would You Rather Be A Mermaid Or A Whale?

This has been circling Facebook and I’m not sure if everyone’s seen it. I think it’s a pretty great read.


A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:

"Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.

Mermaids do not exist.

But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?

Without a doubt, I’d rather be a whale.

At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "

Did I lose 5lbs?

Why am I asking? Well …

I did the second day of 30 Day Shred. Level 1, of course, this morning. TIRING.

Then in the afternoon I had a 2 hour football practice with FSA in the blazing sun. One of the girls accidentally hit me in the head with the football. Then I jammed my knuckle area on my pinky while catching a football.

And I just got done playing a in-door soccer game with FTK tonight. I accidentally knocked down a girl. Whoops.

So you see … I just had to have lost some weight.

But I highly doubt it. Life doesn’t work that way.


Last night I got to finally use my popcorn maker with Jenny and Tammy!


We used olive oil because we didn’t have any other oil. Luckily, I bought spices so we used those. Now we’re thinking of getting butter oil. Then it would REALLY taste like the theater. We figure we would buy that when we are pros at this.

So for the time being, it’s very healthy!

I hope your weekend was eventful. And that your upcoming week goes well!

Lots of meetings and a test and a game this week for me. Eeep!

It’s Been A Productive Day

First things first!

The flyer I made is up around school. They made poster sized too but I’m not sure where my FTK people put them.


Isn’t it sweet?! I got all excited.

Okay, back to business. I woke up and did 30 Day Shred!

If you don’t already know, I’m not a big fan of Jillian Michaels. She just annoys me. But I thought to give this a try because it is known to work.

My goal is to do it ever day for the next 30 days. If I ever have to skip a workout, I’ll have to make it up.

I did Level 1 today and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Though I had to take a few seconds of breathers at the end of some exercises.

Hoping by the time I get to day 10, Level 1 would be easy peasy and I won’t have to stop at all.

I showered then went grocery shopping.


I got almost everything on there.

Most of the stuff on the list was to make Corn Casserole. Yum! Which I made after I got home.


It’s been a good day. And it’s not over yet!


I had NO food last night. So Jenny, Tammy, and I went out.


Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers
4059 North Loop 1604 West
San Antonio, TX 78257

We had coupons … that was the only reason we tried this place.


I got the #1 combo meal which is a steakburger with fries. And made it large so I can have just a bit more sweet tea in my tummy. I’m not a big fan of the fries. They weren’t very potato-y.


From using my coupon, it was buy a combo, get another steakburger but for free. Fatness at the best level.


Jenny and Tammy chowing down on their foods. They shared a coupon. It was buy a combo meal, get one free.


They also used a coupon of chili cheese fries for $1.99.

I tried it and other than the fries being different, it tastes like Sonic’s Chili and Cheese.

We’re glad we went here. Thank you coupons! It was delicious. I think everyone should go, go go. They have locations in Austin and Dallas as well!!

Then we went home and watched some One Tree Hill. Jenny’s finally on Season 4. Where fake Derek comes back on Prom night. Amazing!
