It’s Saturday morning. I’ve been up since 6:45 am. My brain is a jumbled mess, my office floor looks like a bookshelf because I’m in the process of moving my bookshelf from the living room to the office, my desk looks like a tornado flew over it, and my bedroom floor looks like the closet and dresser threw up. Since it’s a fresh year, fresh start, and I’m finally done with training for my 2nd job (which means going forward I’ll be working it from home in the evenings), I feel like I can finally breathe and get my life put back together and work on some of the stuff on my to-do list. 🙂 It’s a great feeling to have a minute to get myself re-organized, but at the same time it’s so time consuming because I get side-tracked from things I’m finding…
First of all, let me say that the month of December was rough as far as workouts go. With being in training from 6-10 pm Monday through Friday, it left me little time to get in a great workout. Or at least a workout comparable to what I’m used to. Sure, I worked up a sweat every time, but they never left me as sore as I’m used to being. 😉 And after finally making it to strength class last Monday, I realized just how much I kinda “lost fitness”. After 20 minutes of class, my entire body was jello. AND, jello sounded really good at that moment. After 25 minutes, I looked at my mom and said, “I’m going to die.” I know now what dying is going to be like. My marathon was easier than that. Obviously, after almost cancelling my gym membership all together, I decided to NOT cancel it. 🙂
Side note: do you keep track of your miles per year? I actually did last year. Kinda. I mean, I write them in my little handy-dandy purse calendar – along with ALL of my workouts – so I was able to go back and add them all up. 🙂 668.5 for the year of 2014. I think I can do better this year. 🙂 Like, 1000 miles at least. Especially considering all of the races I wanna do! My best month was August with 103.1 and my absolute worst month was December with a total of 13 – THIRTEEN! – miles. I over did myself in December…
Next random: I started my boards. I have my January “resolutions”/goals written down in front of my face now. 🙂 And then the other board is just for blog notes, ideas, etc…
Next random piece of information that I need to share with you because well, it’s just too funny to NOT share with the world. 🙂 My mom. She has always hated coffee. The smell. The taste. Coffee breath. Everything about coffee. And she drinks energy drinks for the “kick”. And I yell at her about them. 🙂 So when she was with The Hus at my marathon in October – ya know, waiting around in the cold, early, hours for me for like, 5 hours, The Hus bought her a peppermint mocha from Tim Hortons. She loved it. She then went on to form a habit where she stops at the gas station every morning on her way to work (at 5 am) and gets a peppermint cappuccino with shots of espresso. Hard core. So when she was at our house for Christmas last week, she actually tried “straight” coffee with peppermint creamer. When I say “straight” coffee, I mean, she had some coffee with her creamer. She put so much creamer in the drop of coffee, that she had to warm the
coffee creamer up.
See? I never let down with the funny stories. 🙂
Sit back down. I’m not done with the randomness. Here is another game we play: ‘Where’s Roxy? We can’t see/find her…’
Oh, I’m not done yet! You won’t wanna go anywhere for this important announcement! It involves New Years Eve and pizza. And Bellacino’s. 🙂 New pizza place. New year. = great night.
Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious. Great box of pie. We got a plain cheese for The Nephew, a veggie for my mom and I, and a buffalo chicken. I don’t know about the cheese pizza, but the other 2 were beyond great! And The Nephew ate the whole small cheese pizza, so I’m gonna guess it was pretty good. 😉 Not a super thin crispy crust, but it wasn’t super thick either, so it was still good in my book! Perfect amount of toppings – not too much – and the sauce was REALLY good! HIGHLY recommend! 🙂
Aaaaaaand, I think that’s all I need to share with you today. For now. 🙂 Back to working on blog stuff which involves moving from WP.com to WP.org and getting set up on Blue Host. And then hopefully next week, after the stress of this move wears off, I’ll make the change to a Genesis framework and a new theme. 🙂 So please forgive any “messes” you see on the blog right now…or if it goes down or something. I’m an IT/web “dummy” trying to do it all by myself so that I actually learn some ins and outs of my website. 🙂
Have you had to switch over to a self-hosted site? Any tips, ideas, heads ups you wanna give me???
What did you do for New Years Eve??
What is one of your favorite holiday traditions growing up and did you create a new tradition once you moved out of your parents house???
