Yes it’s cold

Like really, really cold! It was 4 degrees this morning at my house, with a windchill of like -15! But the bright side of the wind chill (making it below zero), no ice on the windshield! I am so not a fan of scraping ice off the windshield. I love my SUV but dang it’s hard to get to the middle of that windshield since I am shorty. Although one of my Christmas presents to me was a remote start in my car, which I am loving yet struggling with because it uses my gas when I am not going anywhere, thereby making my gas mileage worse. That I guess is a small price to pay for warmth, right?!?

So it’s a new year, and it always makes me thing of the weight watchers commercials New Year, New You. Well you know what I like me, and I don’t need a new me. I could make some improvements, sure, but I don’t need an entirely new me for 2014. I am happy with my life and of course a bit more discipline would be great for the new year, but an entirely new person is not necessary. I did purchase one of my favorite gadgets again, the FitBit.  I went with the FitBit Zip this time around instead of the FitBit One or Flex since I don’t like to use it when I sleep.

As I contemplate the new year I am thinking what my goals for 2014 will be. Yes I know I said the same thing in the last post so perhaps it’s time to get going. One thing I am committing to for January is a plank challenge (because you  know you can do a plank pretty much anywhere). Below is the plank list:

Never Ever Linkup

Yup that’s right the Never Ever link up again!


Never ever. . .

  • will I understand why it’s OK to be rude to people! If you see someone say hi, and if they smile at you, smile back. It’s not that hard people! I feel like it’s harder to be rude!
  • will I not enjoy waking up only to realize it’s not time yet, so I can go back to sleep.
  • will I love rain drops as I drive to work. It causes major traffic. It’s just a little water people!
  • will I want to do what I did on Friday again! It was by far the hardest thing I had to do.
  • will I not be thankful for the love and support of my friends and family, and my soon-to-be husband.


Wednesday Wishes, #17

So it’s been a while since I did Wednesday Wishes, so I feel like I should bring it back (at least for this week).


Wednesday Wishes

My Wednesday wish is . . .

  • that myself and a few others find ways to relieve the the stress we are feeling right now!
  • to continue my trend of good for me choices in life.
  • to remember that other people’s actions are  not my fault and I can not control them.
  • that the weekend brings nice weather!
  • for the appliance delivery to go smooth on Friday (another added stress).
  • that I continue to find joy in the little things.

What’s your Wednesday Wish?

Wednesday Wishes

My Wednesday Wish is . . .

  • we make it through the severe weather they say we may get over the next few days safely, and with power.
  • that i start to find a home for the cats. I think I need to do this sooner than later with the travel I have coming up.
  • that my house stays clean, despite the cat hair, why is it always never ending?
  • that I get all my To DO list items done today. . . it’s pretty long today.
  • that those who may be having a rough time make it through OK.

Wednesday Wishes, #10

A little later than usual with my Wednesday wishes, but it’s still Wednesday 🙂

Wednesday Wishes

My Wednesday wish:

  • is that the allergy headaches are coming to an end, both me and the boy are not enjoying allergy season!
  • is that I find the motivation to follow through on a few things that should be completed.
  • is for a day of quiet nothingness (not sure that’s likely to happen soon).
  • is for me to find a new home for my cats sooner rather than later…wedding 5 months away and they need a new forever home.
