Wow, yesterday was heavy. Not only was my blog post a on a heavy topic but on Facebook, it was a full day of commenting and discussion about LDS Temples, and I loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT!

So, today I'm keeping it light!

Yesterday I had a huge spike in hits on my blog, which is always super-awesome but I thought it turned out to be down right funny when I saw some of the searches. Enjoy...



Oh and and did anyone else noticed that "myrtle manor weiner jingle lyrics" has wiener spelled wrong?! I mean, really. I didn't even post the lyrics, but if I did I would have at least spelled wiener correctly.

5 days until I receive my endowments and I get sealed to my parents. Holy hurry up batman!

I posted that on Facebook this morning because I'm super excited about it and I have gotten so much love. I've also gotten the question asking what I'm talking about. I totally forget that sometimes when I'm posting things I'm totally posting in "Mormon-Speak".

So.. I think I'm going to try to use this platform to explain, as best as I can, what all the hoopidy-doo is all about. That way my Non-Mormon folks don't feel left out of my excitement - because I want everyone to be excited and happy with me!

Ok.. so let's start shall we?
Let me preface this whole thing with saying, this has to do with my religion. I'm Mormon.

Ok so this coming Saturday, May 4th (which also happens to be my birthday!) I'll be making my first trip ever to the Temple. See, us Mormon folk have two main buildings that we use. We have our "meeting houses" which is the building we go to every Sunday for our church service (just like all the other Christians out there). Anyone and everyone can go to this building!  It also is where we do our activities like sports, fellowshipping events, etc. But I'm getting off topic.  Okay, so the second building that we use is the Temple. Temples are special and sacred places, just like the Temples back in the old days of Christianity - Temple of Moses, Solomon's Temple, etc (here are some scripture references to Temples if this stuff interests you). The differences between Temples and our Meetinghouses are that anyone and everyone can go inside the Temple when they are a worthy member.

LDS.org gives a great definition of Temples:
Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God. Because making covenants with God is such a solemn responsibility, individuals cannot enter the temple to receive their endowments or be sealed in marriage for eternity until they have fully prepared themselves and been members of the Church for at least a year. Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. The Church is working to build temples all over the world to make temple blessings more available for a greater number of Heavenly Father's children.

Ok. So, to become a worthy member of the Church who can enter Temples, you have to know the magic words (sorry I couldn't help myself) prepare by: Believing in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ & the Holy Ghost, Cultivating a testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the restored gospel, Sustaining and following the living prophet, Qualifying for a temple recommend by: paying tithing, being morally clean, being honest, keeping the Word of Wisdom, and living in harmony with the teachings of the Church, Giving time, talents and means to help build the Lord's kingdom, Participating in family history work. (read more here)

I want to add in here, that if you knew me in high school or in my early 20's you're probably laughing your head off at the thought of me being worthy to enter the Temple. I'm just going to say it like this, if I can change and become who I have become..ANYONE CAN!

If you're still reading this far either you are really interested or I'm great at explaining this stuff!

So, yeh, Temples are sacred. A lot of people think that The Church of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormons) are secretive bunch.  A lot of that comes from the fact that members don't really talk a lot about what goes on in the Temple. There's a reason behind that (besides trying to be secretive), and I heard it explained this way in a talk once, so I'm going to use it here because I think it's the best way I've ever heard it described. There are sacred things in this world, moments that are shared between people that aren't talked about to everyone because they are sacred between those people. I like to think of it as those late night talks you have with your spouse. Those talks are intimate and special to me and my husband and I don't share them with others. Well, in the Temple, sacred ordinances are preformed and because they are special and sacred to the individual receiving those blessings, we don't talk about them outside of the temple. So, I'm not sure if that helped to put it into perspective or just clouded it, but that's the way I see it.

This is a GREAT talk on Temples and what happens there - much more in depth and better stated than I could ever do, you can watch, listen or download the article.

Ok so the first reason I'm going to the Temple to receive my endowment, which is defined as "a special spiritual blessing given to worthy and faithful members of the Church in the temple". It is a series of covenants that we make with Heavenly Father. And like all covenants with Him, we receive blessings in return for keeping those covenants.

The second reason is to be sealed to my parents. See, a beautiful thing about our faith is that we believe that families can be together forever. Not just "until death do you part". This is done by sealing. Usually, a couple is married in the Temple and is sealed for all time and eternity. And when children are born to that couple, the children are automatically sealed to their parents. But since my Mom wasn't a member of the Church when my parents were married, they only recently got sealed about 2 years ago, I wasn't sealed to them. At the time, I wasn't Temple worthy but now that I am, I'll be sealed to my parents. So, when we all decide to take the big dirt nap, our spirits will reconvene up by the pearly gates and we'll all get to hang again forever. Or something like that anyway..

Did I explain this without getting entirely too heavy? I'm not sure.. but I hope that this helps clear the air for those that don't know about Temples or some of the ordinances performed in them. There's a lot more stuff that happens in the Temple but that's for another time and blog post.

The other night my son, who is 7 and my husband, who isn't 7, came home from baseball practice. My husband jumps in the shower and I guess the kiddo thought he was going first because he strips down to his underwear. As he's doing so the following conversation happens:

Me: Daddy's in the shower so you'll have to wait a few minutes. Want to hop up here on the bed and we can find something to watch until he's finished?

Him: Yeah... but Mommy, I don't have clothes on!

Me: You have underwear on, that's clothes.

Him: (embarrassed look)

Me: Are you embarrassed to be in your underwear in front of ME?

Him: (nodding) (grinning) (being all embarrassed)

Me: But I'm your Mommy! I've seen you in your underwear before. In fact, you used to run around in your underwear all the time

Him: I know, that was when I was like 2.

Me: Nik, seriously? I used to see you naked, I think being in your under.....

Him: That's because you used to change my DIAPERS ... and I'm not wearing those anymore!

Me: Well if you don't start wiping your booty any better you'l be wearing them again.

Him: Different subject please.

Oh how times have changed. This coming from the boy who used to live night and day in nothing but underwear. But seriously if he doesn't start wiping better, I'm gonna throw him in a pull up for a day and see if that doesn't kick start his pooping hygiene.

It's Wednesday and I've got nothing but randomness going on so why not link up with Shanna over at Because Shanna Said So for...


I've been sick the past 2 days with some allergy crap that decided to pop up on me in the middle of the night Sunday night. How do you go to bed feeling perfectly fine only to wake up 2 hours later feeling like a big box of snot?! I never suffered from allergies until after my son was born. He broke me. And these past 2 years have been rough.  
Of course, I have to take Sudafed to try to keep all this crud dried up and me and Sudafed get along only in short doses. After about a day of taking it I start to get all jittery and usually end up not sleeping. Which is exactly what happened Monday night after taking Sudafed all day.
Talk about a catch 22.

So while I was home sick, when I wasn't snoring my face off, I watched, what my husband has dubbed, my quality television. I caught up on Myrtle Manor and RHOC and RHOA. And once all my DVR'ed goodness was done I just channel hopped between Married To Medicine and America's Next Top Model: All Stars.
It's sad isn't it? I seriously could keep Bravo's ratings up just by myself. If my TV could only tune to 2 stations I would hope it would be Bravo and CBS (can't miss out on my Survivor, Amazing Race & NCIS!).  I'm not sure why I can so easily watch crappy reality shows but have a hard time finding interest in anything scripted. When I say scripted.. I mean sit-coms. I know some reality shows are scripted and all, I mean I may be a reality junkie but I'm not an idiot. For the most part.

Wow. 10 days until I go to the Columbia, SC Temple. Yes, I'm counting. I'm pretty sure I've totally over killed the topic here on my blog, but hey.. I blog about what's in my head so you're stuck with it. Monday night my Temple bag came in. Isn't it cute?
I'm still trying to figure out how my dress and slip are supposed to fit in this thing. Along with everything else.

Luckily for me, I have an awesome friend Christina who has literally given me the 411 on anything I've asked her about. I'm sure she can help a sistah out. Seriously, this girl is amazing. Not only is she my friend (which can be time consuming) but she's a Bishop's wife, mother of 2, friend to MANY and works and does great at her callings. She's super cool and an inspiration to me.


Ok, so the sinus meds are kicking in again so I think it's time to go pass out again for a bit....

My allergies are trying to kill me so I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

This past weekend was my 11 year wedding anniversary. It was a great weekend. We ate great food at Bin 112.

At this point, this is all I feel like typing, seriously my eyeballs feel like they want to pop out of my head from the sinus pressure.

I'll catch ya'll later when I'm not feeling quite like death.

A Darkness More Than Night
A Darkness More Than Night by Michael Connelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Terry McCaleb, the retired FBI agent who starred in the bestseller "Blood Work," is asked by the LAPD to help them investigate aseries of murders that have them baffled. They are the kind of ritualized killings McCaleb specialized in solving with the FBI, and he is reluctantly drawn from his peaceful new life back into the horror and excitement of tracking down a terrifying homicidal maniac. More horrifying still, the suspect who seems to fit the profile that McCaleb develops is someone he has known and worked with in the past: LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch

I loved this McCaleb/Bosch crossover & now it's got me wanting to explore the McCaleb series.
The story twisted and I loved the two differences between McCaleb and Bosch. Although it was weird to not have Bosch in the driver's seat in this one.


Again, I always review these Bosch series books the same way, if you enjoy police/crime/drama and you like Harry Bosch, you're going to like this one as well.

This Friday isn't really feeling like a Friday because how can it be a Friday when your boss scheduled a meeting first thing in the morning? Who does that on a Friday? I guess it's better than having it on a Monday.

I went a little overboard on the pink. I don't know.


one
Who spent last Saturday at the LDS Temple in ATL? Yup, I know I already told you about all that.The more I see, learn and prepare for my first time going through the Temple, the more excited I get.

two
Ok. I'm going to be fully honest here. I used to make fun of people I saw walking around carrying bottles of Perrier. Oh, look.. Ms. Hoity Toity has to have bubbly water, too good for the old fashion stuff. Heavens forbid she have to drink out of a fountain! Um. This stuff is GOOD! Like, hey I like some carbonation with my water, thank you! Had I stopped and tasted it before making fun of it  I would have been on this bandwagon a long time ago. However, for the sake of my checking account, it's a good thing I don't buy bottled water very often.

three
My son makes me smile so much. This masterpiece of Lego craftsmanship is his rendition of the girls of Noteworthy. These are 9 girls from BYU who sing beautiful accapella. I love their mash up they did of Gavid Guetta's "Without You" and Mumford & Son's "I Will Wait". Of course I bought their song on Amazon , um 99 cents ya'll!  Oh and it's on iTunes too but since I'm not a Mac person, you'll have to just find it yourself. We watch their video on YouTube a lot, so that was his version of the girls during this video below

Rainbows coming out when your boy's team is down 17-0. Way to play with heart kiddos!

five
See those two countdown widgets right there in the middle of that screen. Well, first, they are wrong. Because I took that screenshot yesterday. HAH! So hello 15 days until the Temple and 53 days until my cruise! Two biggest deals of my summer right there!

Ok, that's my highlights from the week. You know if bottled water is making the list that this week wasn't all that great but hey.. I'm finding the rainbows baby!

When I saw this cute link up from Whitney over at I Wore Yoga Pants to Work I had to jump on!


WHEN I GROW UP
  • I'll not only have a clean house with a place for everything and everything in it's place, but I'll enjoy keeping it that way.

  • I'll have some brilliant words of wisdom (from my vast experiences, of course) to pass on to those younger and less wise.




  • I won't have laundry still folded on my dresser from last week.

  • I'll have a yard that looks better than the August National course




  • I will always have time for mani's and pedi's.
  • I won't listen to music by artists with symbols instead of letters
  • I will not refer to my van as the swagger wagon





  • I will never have those days that people stop and wonder, did she try to look like that this morning or did she just forget to shower and do her hair?


  • I'll be at every field trip my son goes on (even in college)


  • My husband & I will spend our days planning things to fill the time, not trying to find the time



But none of this will be likely to happen because the thought of "growing up" really kind of is depressing. So you're stuck with my adolescent behavior and sometimes-inappropriate comments for at least another 20 years, because that's when embarrassing my son gets really fun!

With yesterday's Google+ & Bloglovin' link up I realized I probably needed to associate my blog with my Google+ account.

I mean. I had it associated until someone told me that they couldn't reply to my comment because  I was a No-Reply Blogger, you can find out what that is all about here (because you probably don't know you are one unless someone tells you).

Unfortunately, to fix that No-Reply Blogger thing you have to un-associate your Google+ account. I'm not going to lie, doing that kind of sucks because I like that my blogs auto-post to Google+ and I also liked that it made my profile page my Google+ page. But I changed because I couldn't be (gasp!) a No-Reply Blogger!!

Well, I am again.

I think this is going to be an issue in the future with more and more bloggers (at least some of the blogs I read) using Google+ more.

So add me on Google+! See that nifty widget over there on the right..  yeah, right there.. see? Do it!

That is all. Carry on.

I'm not going to lie. I've got nothing to talk about. Well, that's not exactly true, I have a lot to talk about but that's part of my problem. I've got so much going on right now and so many thoughts bubbling through my brain that it's really hard for me to get concise blog posts written. I start off pretty decent but I get about 2 sentences in and then....

Oh look! Shiny! Wait, what was I talking about?

See.

I'm totally saddened by the tragedy in Boston yesterday. I had a mild flashback to 9-11. I still to this day can't comprehend the violence in this world and why someone would want to hurt innocent people.. There has always been evil and there has always been good.

Ok, I'm not going to be a complete Debbie-Downer.

So it's Spring and I love scrolling through the fashion blogs I follow and seeing all the new spring trends and I sit and I say, "Oh that's totes cute" or "So me!" but then honestly that's about as far as I go with fashion. I'm not busting out old parachute pants or my members only jacket but as far as having all the new coral shirts or mint pants.. I could give 2 cares. I try some new things here and there that I see how there in blog-fashion-land and I've learned so much! But I'm not that girl. I'll never be a fashion or beauty blogger, that's for sure. Not unless you're going for that "down home" look or maybe the "college look for the soon to be 40 year old" thing.

Oh hey speaking of FASHION (and not my lack there of) Ashley over at Flats To Flip Flops is doing a cool link up I wanted to join in on. I link to her like I personally know her or something but hey.. I read her all the time so I KNOW HER!

Anyway, you know since the whole Google Reader is to be buried soon and all everyone is trying to figure out how to follow their favorite blogs. Well, personally I use Feedly as my main RSS reader now but Bloglovin' is pretty cool too and apparently Google+ is the big new follow frenzy for all these wild and crazy bloggers out there... SO.. I wanna make sure I'm on this party bus!

The link up is running every Tuesday this month so hop on board with me and follow the hosts & co-hosts to meet some cool new bloggy-peeps!

Well, I was about to throw another paragraph or two out here with some random things that are filling my headspace but I think I'll spare you for today. I've tortured you enough and if you're still reading you're just a glutton for punishment. So on that note....

Have a great Tuesday!!

Where do I even begin today? My weekend was seriously so awesome that it just zoomed by!

Proof I was there ya'll!
My parents and my aunt made a trip up to our house on Friday night so that we could leave bright and early for a day trip to the big ATL! I'm going to be honest, up until this past weekend the thought of going to Atlanta was so unappealing. I always equated it to some really long drive and crazy traffic. Ok, so the traffic is crazy. But the drive, totally not super long or anything. I mean, I pack up and drive two and half hours to my parents house on a whim. It just struck me this weekend that it's the same distance (at least time wise) to Atlanta, why did I dread it? I don't know. But I don't anymore.

So we spent the day in Atlanta. Most of our time was spent at the Atlanta LDS Temple. And we couldn't have picked a better day to go!  The tulips were blooming, it was beautiful weather - it felt like no humidity at all - it was perfect for walking around the Temple and taking picture. We spent a lot of time in the Distribution store getting things for my upcoming trip to go through the Temple and I have to say we met the most awesome lady in there. Miss Wendy from up and around Portland (her words, not mine) was incredible. She was so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Sometimes in life people are called to serve in ways that you just know were meant for them. That was the case with Wendy.  I couldn't have felt more comfortable.  After we got done with our shopping we dropped everything in the car and took a leisurely stroke around the grounds. If you've never been around Temple grounds (which is open to the public by the way), you can kind of equate it to being a beautiful park. There are benches all around where you can sit and just take in the beauty. It's quiet and truly I can't think of a more righteous space to sit and think or to enjoy the company of your friends and family. I know we really enjoyed it. I'm pretty sure I could have stayed a lot longer and taken a lot more pictures, I mean I only took about 200!


I'm not sure if I really want to get into my upcoming Temple trip. Actually, I'm not sure how to get into it. A lot of what is done in the LDS Temples are sacred.  Anyone can become worthy to go to the Temple and participate in these sacred ceremonies but because of how sacred they are, it's not just openly talked about. Which is why a lot of folks think that us LDS are all secretive and stuff. But hey, do people just go blabbing about what they did on their honeymoon night? No? Because it was special and only between the people deserving to be there? Yeah, that's kinda how the Temple works too. I can say this much right now and feel comfortable, I'm going for my endowments and so I can be sealed to my parents. I'm really excited and now I'm just waiting for May 4th to get here.

Ok. So we've had a crash course on LDS Temples and with that.. Monday begins...

Linking up with Sami!

We had some wicked storms roll through our area last night. Nothing like being woken up at 2:30ish by your windows rattling from what seemed like 3 minute long thunder. Glad that's all done and over with especially now that it seems to have washed away all that nasty pollen!

Let's get on with H54F!
one
What e'er thou art, act well thy part
This was a quote that was mentioned last weekend during General Conference and it's stuck with me all week. Basically, we all have talents in life, and whatever that art may be let's choose to do it well. That saying alone has helped me realize that it's important to live up to your potential in all that you do.

two
Fist bump! I love when old guys fist bump. I love when leaders of my church fist bump. I love when there's reason to fist bump. I'm one of those people that love making up shakes and bumps with friends.
Pound cake. FRENCH FRIES!



three
Fuddrucker turkey burger. It's not as healthy as I should have been eating but it sure kicked that crappy old spinach salad's butt, and on a day that I truly needed it.

four
New hair! It's not gray! Ok, so I seriously suffer from grey hair and I went to a darker shade over the winter and hated it. After 3 weeks my hair would be growing out and I'd just see this shine coming out. Stupid gray. Although I did have an idea that I ran by my stylist of just dying all my hair gray. Obviously, she didn't agree. So I'm blonde again! I think it suits me and if it doesn't well that's just tough.

five
Our dogwoods are blooming! We planted these in March and I was so afraid that with all the wonky weather that they'd die. My mom loves dogwoods. My husband's mother loved dogwoods (she passed away). I love looking out our front windows and seeing these little blooms.

Here's to a great Friday and a great weekend!

Ya'll, if you haven't noticed, it's Wednesday. No, really. This week is FLYING!
As you can see I'm linking up with Michell over at Prowess and Pearls for her lovely Doing YOU WELL Wednesday. First, How can you not love a blog named Prowess and Pearls. Second, I love the community feel of this link up (even though I've been kind of slack at doing it the last few weeks - sorry!)

So Monday, I had set some goals and I have to take a second an brag that I have gone two whole days eating pretty darn well. For those of you who know me, you know this is a challenge for me. For those of you who don't know me, seriously, moderation is not in my vocabulary.

Also, I'm trying to get to 9 Round at least 3 times a week. I skipped yesterday so I wasn't rushed before my son's baseball game. And I'm pretty sure the parents are thankful too that I didn't show up all sweat-tastic and stankin' up the bleachers. I sweat like a man. It's not pretty. I also have a hair appointment tonight and let's just be honest. I have my priorities. Hair > Gym. Period. But it's all good in the hood because I'll get my 9 Rounds in on Thursday for sure and I'm kind of certain I'll get it in on Friday. Ok.. so I may be setting myself up to fail on this goal this week.

Ok, I'm slackin' on my spiritual studying. But I have a plan. Friday night I'm going to take some time in the evening to really get some quality reading in. I have some great talks and a book my mom gave me and I have my super comfy double papa-san chair just calling my name.

On my Visiting Teaching note. I've got some great things planned, I just need to schedule to meet up with my homies! I'm thinking it's not going to happen this week but maybe next!

This week has been simply brutal at work. I say that in the most 1st world, I-work-a-desk-job kind of way. I've come home each night mentally exhausted. I seem to go through waves of complete insanity for it to calm down to just mild chaos and then it ramps back up for a month or two. It works for me, I kind of thrive off of working in the moment so I guess I shouldn't complain too much. But it's during this month or so of insanity that I sometimes sit back and wonder why I don't move into some other profession. Like librarian. I like to read. I'm good at reading. I get the Dewey decimal system.

But I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe I'd get bored with that one day, so maybe it's best I stick with what I'm good at and just power through the stress. I'm pretty good at that.

So on that note..  What are Doing YOU WELL this Wednesday??

Ok ya'll, this is going to be a quick one because I'm SO motivated that I just don't have time to be sitting here typing. Not really. But it's a busy week ahead and I have a lot of prep work to do but it's been a while since I've done a Motivational Monday, so here goes nothing.
Stephanie.Fitness
I'm linking up with Stephanie.Fitness for Motivational Monday!

Sorry this is going to be short and sweet this week.



Here's my goals for this week:
1. Hit 9 Round a minimum of 3 days this week, if not more

2. Have a week of GREAT nutrition.
               I've been killing all my efforts at 9 Round by eating completely crappy

3. Do some spiritual studying this week in prep for my upcoming Temple Trip

4. Help the Kiddo do better on his chore chart

5. Get my VT on! I have something fun I made for my VT Sisters & I totally want to share it
                VT is short for Visiting Teaching (check out the linky) and it's something that we do in my Church. We have Sisters in the Church that we go visit each month to bring a spiritual message but also as a way to just fellowship with one another. This is probably one of my most favorite things about my Church so I really want to try to rock it.

Holy cow, I thought Friday was just a myth. This week I've sat through 2 full-day software demos, and as much as I enjoy dreaming about having new software that will help streamline work, they get tiring. I'm not sure exactly what is so tiring about sitting on my tail for about 6 hours out of my work day listening to people talk and taking notes, but it is! I feel more tired after a day like that than I do after a completely crazy day!
But enough complaining, we're here for some FUN!

So without further adue adou adieu...



one
This week, my #1 spot of complete and utter high fiveness goes to... ME! I got my very first Temple Recommend! Of course, I talked all about it earlier this week but this, my friends, could possibly be on my high five list for years to come (but I promise it won't be, just in my head). If you don't know what this is, then check out my posty-post about it.

two
Ok. There's a lot of complaining going on down here in South Carolina about why it's April and yet our mornings are still in the 30's and 40's. Well, I just look at it like this... it gives me a longer "hot chocolate" season! Because you know you can't be drinking hot chocolate in South Carolina in June, that's like eating ice cream during a blizzard. You just don't do it.

three
This weekend weather is going to be great. I'm not going to lie, I'm really thriving for those hot summer days and all but Spring (when we get one around here) is so nice. When it's warm enough for shorts but you can still pull off a long sleeve shirt with it. Ahhh.. it just makes my soul happy thinking about it.

four
Big. New. Cheap. Watches.
I can beat a watch up harder than Chris and Rhianna. So expensive watches? Um, only on date nights! The rest of the week I'll happily sport my cheapo from Cato. And by the way, why can't I take a decent picture of my wrist without my hands looking ginormous??

five
Orange Fluff! I'm not sure if this is just a Mormon thing, but this stuff is AWESOME. It's a side, it's a dessert, it's a snack! Hey, I'm thinking it could be main course! I got my recipe from Six Sister and there are a lot of alternatives to change it up. But seriously, it's light, it's orangy.. it's perfect for Spring! And I can eat my body weight in it and I did.


Here's to Friday! And hoping that everyone out there bloggy land has a great one!

Wanna know what I'm listening to while I'm working out? Yep. Thought you would.
I'm not going to lie. I have the musical tastes of a high schooler. It's sad really. But I don't hold it against myself so you shouldn't either (or if you do, it's okay). And don't ask how I throw some country up in the middle of this mix, it just works for me somehow.


1. Kelly Clarkson - Catch My Breath 2. Pitbull (Christina Aguilera)  - Feel This Moment 3. Will.I.Am & Brittney Spears - Scream & Shout 4. Ke$ha - Blah Blah Blah 5. Florida Georgia Line - Cruise 6. Beastie Boys - Intergalactic 7. Pitbull - Don't Stop The Party 8. OutKast - Hey Ya! 9. Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child.

So I've gotta say I'm really happy with my fitness this week. Three days a week at 9 Round and totally feeling a difference. I can tell I'm getting stronger but I'm also seeing some results on the scale and in my clothes.
My nutrition is still slipping. But seriously ya'll, there's no way I'll ever be so hardcore that I'm not messing up here and there. It may sound like an excuse but I just don't want to focus that hard on it. I'm trying to stick to a 1250-1500 calories a day range and I'm trying to regulate the type of nutrients I'm taking in. I think that's good and should suffice for now. By the way, I use SparkPeople (I think I've mentioned this before) so if you're on there feel free to add me as a friend!
