sNOw...and Jill.

I was SO excited for the great weather we had last week. It has been snowing for the last 8 hours and I am so over it!!! I just want summer already. I guess that's what I get for starting to pack my winter clothes up hahah.
Big snowflakes--so cold out.
I needed to run a few errands so I scooped my driveway so I wouldn't get stuck. (It really wasn't that much.) I have to admit that they snow can be a little fun at times. I especially like throwing snowballs at people ;)

Chili was on the menu for supper tonight with all the snow and it was good! :) I eat mine without beans but my family eats it with beans. Of course, Frito's and cheese too :P I'm the black sheep of the fam.

Lunch was subway because I had to stay at school to take a test. They need to create a way to stop all the fillings from falling out as soon as you pick it up. Am I the only one this happens too? haha soooo messy!

My Ripped in 30 workout DVD with Jillian Michaels came in the mail today. Whoop whoop! I am so excited for ABS. I only have 34 days left to get them! I'm sure she will almost kill me before then! ;) It kind of scares me how much I look forward to working out everyday...

Bring it, Jill!!!
They are slowly coming in. 

Yes, as you can see, I am obsessed with pink! I also like hairspray hahah and zebra...... I will be putting a Simply Said on the wall behind me with a bunch of new picture frames soon so it won't be boring anymore!! I'll blog about it ;P

Thanks for reading! xoxo

Yesterday, it was around 50 degree here. Yipppeee...that's pretty darn good for Iowa this time of year haha The sun was shining and it wasn't too windy so I thought, "Today would be a great day to start."

 {Thumbs up for shorts in February!!...don't mind my parents ugly bedspread}

I have been waiting to do this because the weather is so iffy and it has been pretty cold.
I felt pretty good yesterday doing it.

{Not too sweaty ;)..My dog constantly follows me around.}
I got out of school today and I saw something white falling from the sky. NOOOOOO. By the time I got home from school (1 hr drive) it was a wet rainy snow. In the 30's and windy. Looks like no running for this girl. So I will do day 2 tomorrow..

I really DO NOT enjoy winter anymore. 21 years is enough for me..I can't wait until I get to move to the sunny Cali :)

I can't tell you what my pace and everything was because I still haven't played around with it enough to know how everything works haha.

I'm doing 3...yes THREE different workouts all in one day right now so I can get my nice legs and ABS.

Abbbbbbbbbs. Oh boy.

Today, while having a conversation with J about working out, I proceeded to say I wanted to get better abs. He said "That would be sexy." Darrrrrrn it. Now I have to get abs in percisely 47 days.

I have been doing some full body and cardio workouts on and they have been good but NOW I have to step it up with my ab workouts....crap.

Don't get my wrong, I enjoy working out but I would rather do legs over abs ANYDAY.

I have been major "pinteresting: today finding workouts so wish me luck! ;)

Since J is in the USMC and one of the requirements to get in is 2 pull-ups. So that is my other goal that I am going to do. I tried about a month ago and it was an EPIC FAIL. I have no arm strenth when it comes to that, whatsoever.

If you are looking for a quick new workout, has 10 min workouts that are fun to do!!! They are a great warm-up or nice on days where you don't have much time. So check it out ;)

Happy friday, everyone!!!

Busy Little Bee!

What a crazy day...

I am finally done with homework and it's only 11 pm!! Yippeeeee! After staying up late the last few nights and getting up early I can't wait for a day to sleep in! (Never gonna happen)

Between work and school, I won't get a break for 97 days!!! YIKES!!

Oh wait....only 49 days until Spring Break!!! HELLO CALIFORNIA! I can't wait!!!!!! Fun in the sun and now that I am 21, it's guaranteed to be a good time right?! ;) Plus I get to see my boo who I haven't seen for 38 days....sheesh, that's a lot of counting haah

Long distance relationships are pretty hard, but this last year apart has been worth it. I can't wait until I get to move there for good ;)

Just thought I would get in a quick blog to my few followers haha I'm off to dream land!  Sweet dreams, everyone!!!

Still a newbie..

I am currently taking a Nutrition class online and for the last few days, we have had to track our food.

HOLY COW! It's crazy how junk food really does not help your body and is BAD for it. Comparing junk food versus fruit/veggies is crazy. I have been "blog stalking" and a lot of the girls talk about how food is like toxins in the body. I totally agree butttt I have one heck of a sweet tooth! haha

I have been doing pretty well though! It's hard to eat a total healthy meal when I am always on the run with work and school. I know...excuses, excuses. I'm working on it. :)

I was going to a Zumba class every Wednesday night and it was fun. Then I found and love their 10 min workouts! I burn double the calories and feel SO much better after a few 10 min workouts over an hour Zumba class.

I am a total blog newbie so I have NO idea how to do any cool stuff. Give me a smart phone, computer, any gadget and I can do so many things at once but I am totally lost on this. haha I will try to learn :)
