Some may say th…

Some may say that I do to many workouts in a week. That may be the case but I have a goal. I am doing it in a healthy way, it’s not a crash diet, it is workouts and healthy eating. It’s learning new things and getting better at them.

I have been Belly dancing for a year and getting better. I am dancing with troupes that have been dancing for years and I am blowing their minds! (and when I say “I” I mean the troupe that I dance with). I have been teaching Zumba for a year and am getting better and learning new things. I am making me better and that is the best thing. Here’s to a great 2012!!!


Blah blah blah

Today I feel much like my blog, blah. I need to change my blog somehow, the color, the style, something. This is just not helping me today. I need to get dressed, get off the computer, work on the new house and be happy about it. I don’t think all of that is going to happen. Let’s see what we can do, shall we?

School time

As many of you know, I am going to school online. I have just completed my second class and am now waiting for my final grade. I am so happy to be going to school right now. It’s a bit of a strain on my life, going to school, working and trying to have a personal life, but if this is what I really want then I have to work for it, right?

I turned in my final paper for my Psychology class on Monday, pretty early in the evening for me, and then got comments back on it the next day. I was so happy. The only problem is that, when I was taking my English Proficiency test I did really bad, both times that I took it. It was just bad timing for me. I took the test, the first time, when Halley was having surgery and then finding out about her cancer, so my mind wasn’t really on schoolwork. Which is understandable considering the situation. It’s been just about a month since I went back to California for a funeral and then I have to read Death, Dying, and Bereavement chapter in the book. It was just a bit a much emotionally for me.

But it looks like I should be getting at least a solid B for that class. Now I am onto English and I am hoping that my writing gets better and easier to understand, LOL. Well I am off to bed. It’s late…….and I have school tomorrow.

1st day back to work

It’s Monday night and I am bone tired after a full day back to work. Well not really. But I am tired because I was really into watching my Boise State win their 14th game this season!!!!! In case you didn’t know it I am a HUGE football fan and wanted to go to the game today because they played here in Arizona. It would only have been a 4 hr drive one way, lol. But that’s okay. I got to watch all but the first 5 minutes of it on TV. Next year we are going to a game in Boise where I will get to kiss the blue field.But onto another topic.

The kids were not ready school. Most of them came back to me cranky and tired. I know Savie was not ready because she had a MAJOR meltdown. She’s never been this bad before but she hit and kicked me. I was not happy so I sat on the floor with her and held her arms and crossed my legs so she couldn’t do it again until she was calm. I’m upset because my other kids saw it but she has no one to blame but herself. I just don’t know what to do with her sometimes. SHe is getting out of hand and it has to stop soon. My nerves can’t take it much longer. On the plus side though she keeps telling me she loves me. It’s so cute the way that she says it but that does not erase what she’s done, you know?

I have decided that this summer I will be closed one morning a week so we can go to the pool. Savie and I never got to go together. She went with a friend once, and then a couple times when we were on the road but I would like to see my new body in a bathing suit, you know? I’ve lost plenty of weight so I should be able to get into a newer bathing suit. Am I selfish? Probably but that’s ok. I have a right to do that every now and then.

Well she’s woken up and it’s almost midnight. I need to get to bed. Have a wonderful night everyone.

Sunday Scribbles

This is the first one of the new year so I am going to start fresh and, in keeping with the theme this week, turn over a new Leaf.

This past year was hard but I will but makingĀ  a few changes. I have lost about 15lbs, started my own business, ans went back to school myself. So I guess I will continue with what I’ve started. I will continue with Aktins because its more of a lifestyle change then a diet. I will continue with school and get my degree. It’s a new year and new things are coming up.

Long time……..

I just realized that it’s been 2 months since I have posted anything! Wow I didn’t realize that my life has been that busy. I will have to get back to posting more often and there will be an more current update posted before the new year, I promise.
