“It’s the Final Countdown! …”

Can anyone name the band who sing the title of my post????

Oh this week is just flying by!!!!! I feel a little behind in blog reading, I will have to catch up after this crazy week is over:) Thanks for reading everyone!

Yesterdays morning workout was wonderful! I was a little afraid I would be dead tired because of the lack of sleep, but I got to the gym and ended up doing MORE then I expected. I did 20 minutes on the ET, which I forgot I loved, because I could read my new EveryDay Magazine, and then ran 2 miles fast on the treadmill, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought. The treadmills at my gym are real nice, and have fans on them which feels great! I can’t realy tell you about that stats because the only thing it really told me is that I ran 2 miles for 17 minutes, have to figure out the programming. After the cardio I did 30 minutes of weights, and abs. I was about to walk out the door and then I saw that on the schedule there was a Yoga class (MY NEW THING for the day) just about to start, so I STAYED! I only did half the glass because of time, my body SOOO needed it. I also wore my new DoceVida pants, which the hubby said were super sexy ( when I go to the gym I don’t really like to be sexy but whatever). I will do a full review this weekend. Has anyone else tried there products?



When I got home I made this wonderful bowl of oats:



1/2 c oats
1/2 c soy milk
1/2 c H2O
2 tbs of spoonful of hemp seeds
a little dried cranberries
a little flax granola
1/4 living harvest bar

spoonful of Barneys Butter
1/2 banana sliced
spoonful of apple butter

I was awake all yesterday with no TIRED spells, I drank lot’s of water and stayed super busy! Our Holiday Sing at school went great, I always get a little teary eyed when I see them up on stage, it’s like there my own kids (I can’t imagine what I will do when my own kids are really up there).

Some of the silliness I encountered last night!

I came home and comforted the hubby, he’s going through a lot right now. He’s on a mission to find a new job, and it’s kind of a little overwhelming for him, because nobody is hiring. I know that the economy is not in it’s best shape right now, to say the least, but when it starts effecting you directly it all becomes so REAL. I know that the Lord will open a door for him, I just don’t know when and what. The unknown is just so hard some times. I saw one of my students last night, that had gotten in a plane crash over Thanksgiving, and I started to weep inside. I knew that he was in pretty bad shape, but seeing a 6 year old in a wheel chair with a body brace, two full leg casts, and some major scratches on his head and face made everything so real. I am so glad the he is alive and making it through, and that’s how I feel about my hubby’s job and our financial situation, we might be going through something hard at the moment but were alive and well and making it through!


When my head hit the pillow I must have fallen asleep because the next thing I know it was 7am and I was up for the day! It’s still cold here and drizzling a little outside, so I am going to do some AKB tonight and the Sculpt class, no run for this morning. I was a little too tired this morning to make anything so I just threw a mix of cereals in a bowl and called it breakfast. I also had a nice big cup of coffee!!!

I am planning on getting a lot done tonight, it’s the only night I have off before Friday. Hubby has softball, so I am going to wrap some of his gifts, bake for my co-workers, work on BSI submission, and clean a little. As soon as we get done with this week I will be catching up on CLEANING, I feel like everything is all over the place, but I know I will be able to get to it very SOON! I am already making a list of things that I want to accomplish on break. What would you do if you had two weeks off?

  • clean house top to bottom
  • organize pantry
  • scrapbook vacation pictures/racing pictures
  • update pictures in picture frames around the house
  • re organize office
  • do some reorganizing of the guest bedroom
  • research races I would love to do next year
  • read at least 2 novels
  • try some new workouts
  • ……….

Well I am off to hump day! Everyone have a beautiful day wherever you may be, remember life is short make the most of it!

P.S. I leave with you this picture of what’s in our backyard.
