So Many Excuses – 2015
I went into the office for 2 hours to make up some hours because of the holiday. Greg and I did some shopping at WalMart and he said you should not trust the sheep because the pillows don’t work like they should. We bought a blind for the window in the entranceway to help block some of the heat from coming in.
I did a chest and cardio workout in the home gym this evening. I’m trying to keep up with everything. I make so many excuses and I need to get my act together and Greg is going to help me through this process. Let’s do this!
iPhone Chaos – 2014
I have a new Betty Boop cinch bag because my other one started to rip at the bottom. It’s my fault I’m sure because I carry my life with me everywhere I go.
It’s also a goal that I drink enough water so I’m working on that and reaching my step goals.
I closed this vlog after a few days away. I really need to teach Greg how to edit videos. Haha
Where are all the Ray Rice Supporters – 2014
September 9th Day In The Life It’s going to be a busy day with the new Apple announcement. I will see how busy we will be over the next few weeks.
The Zumba teacher who quit provided all her students with a CD to remember her by. It was really sweet of her to do that for us.
Greg bought me a Raven’s cheerleader Betty Boop and she is super cute. There is some drama surrounding Ray Rice so I’m not sure how I feel about all this. I have some mixed feeling about the whole situation. It makes me wonder with everything I’ve seen, where all the supporters now? I’m not sure how people can be surprised by the new video. The Raven’s were going to get rid of him and this video just made it that much easier for him.

He Likes It – 2014
September 8th Day In The Life. We have a family member in the hospital and I’m was hit with the flu bug. I rambled a bit at the start of my vlog but that’s what I do. We need your prayers and good thoughts because we have a lot going on right now.
Digger got Green Bark G
I went to Zumba class tonight and it was the instructors last class. It was fun and sad at the same time. She had her boyfriend come to the class to video some of the class for her own memories.

Wine Storage – 2015
September 7th Day In The Life. We went on another Craig’s List adventure. There was a nice wine cabinet that we were able to pick up on South Mountain.
Please tell me why corn has hair on it. It’s one of those things that will make you go hmmmm….
This Is Not Goodbye – 2014
The sky is looking yellowish – orange and it’s very freaky. The weather is crazy but this is hurricane season so it’s nothing new for this area. Stay safe y’all and we will see you in the next one.
September 7th Day In The Life
Curio Cabinet Adventure – 2015
I started my day before
I’ve been working on taking real breaks during that day and walking through the parking lot.
Greg put a baby gate on hinges so I can lock Digger out of the closet when I need to. My closet is still coming together and everything is looking pretty good at the moment. There is still a lot of work to be done but we are making it feel like home.
Over the weekend Greg and I stopped to look at some old cars at a car show. After that
Ups and Downs of Life – 2014
I have a lot weighing on my mind recently. I just want to say that the little stresses in life mean nothing compared to what your bigger picture is all about. Sometimes I feel like life is too harsh and I have way more on my shoulders than I can handle.
Greg is still on his green smoothie kick and he thinks he can force me to drink it too I think I will stick to chicken and cabbage. He did actually get me to try a drink of it but Greg would call it a sip.
Our neighbor stopped by for an update on his life. He’s a cool kid. He has his moments when he gives him mom a hard time but he listens to us when he comes over to visit.
Dark Skies and New Windows – 2016
September 5th Day In The Life. I’ve got a lot going on and I’m hoping that things will settle down in a month or so. Greg and I are getting new windows for a total of 8 windows. It will only cover some of the ones we need to replace. We have grids in the windows like I wanted. The windows were all installed but one window had a defect so we need to decide on what to do about that. Greg and I were able to get some BBQ from 3 Hogs and it was amazing
The days are getting shorter and the sky is getting dark early. It’s kinda depressing. The boat is finally registered so we can put it in the water. I’m pretty excited about all of that. We did a little shopping for items we need for the boat before we take it out.
The garden is pretty much over at this point. I guess we will close it for the season. Wr also have apple actually growing on the tree’s.
Super Soaker Storm – 2014
Tis the season for major rain storms and the weather is not letting us down. I’m looking forward to my vacation. We had rain and it was coming down pretty hard too. There is also a pretty bad flu going around and I’m hoping that I can avoid it before my staycation.
When I got home from work Greg was walking through the flooding in the backyard. It’s getting pretty bad out there. There was a road and train tracks that caved in and it was insane. Be safe out there
#ProjectGettingItBack – 2017
Happy Labor Day! It’s day number 2 of prep and my weight is currently at 154.8. Greg and I also picked up a bookshelf we found on
I’m working out and we will call it #ProjectGettingItBack because that’s what we are trying to do. While I’m working out Greg is trying a payday candy bar in bbq flavor and he actually liked it.
Crickets – 2014
I hate driving behind trucks that carry rocks and dirt because I know they will bust my windshield. Digger tried to bite me when I tried to save him from a cricket and it was a whole drama fest and none of us really got any sleep. I skipped the gym because I was sleep deprived. My schedule will be changing soon and I will be on
I had to call Fitbit about an issue with the band stretching too much but they are going to take care of it so I’m happy.
Let’s talk about water and how I manage to get a gallon of water per day. I was not always a water drinker. When I was in high school I was hospitalized several times for dehydration. I’ve been there and it sucks.
It is possible to drink a gallon a day with some small changes to your daily routine.
In the morning I will fill up my cup of water and take my vitamins before I head to the gym.
I use a cup with a wide mouth so I can get more water than a water bottle would provide. Between taking my vitamins and going to the gym I can manage to drink about 40oz of water.
On a normal
No matter what I’m doing for the day I make sure I carry a bottle of water with me. I could be shopping, sitting at home, going to the gym…it does not matter because I carry a bottle of water with me everywhere I go. I usually carry one in my hand and one in my bag or purse so I’m never without water. If we are going to be gone for a few hours I like to carry a sports bottle with me because it holds more than 20 ounces of water.
You can also find a refillable bottle at the dollar store that will hold more than 30 ounces of water. On those busy
Just look for bottles or cups that work with your day. I use cups with straws sometimes but I feel like I’m sucking up more air than water so they don’t really work for me.
There are several cups you can use that can help you get your water intake for the day. Just give them a try to see what works best for you and your lifestyle.
Flavored water is good and using an infused water pitcher can help also. There are so many things you can try to change the taste of water without adding sugar to your day. It’s another option to get your water in with a little flavor.
Do what works best for you.
Here is a video on how to make cucumber water. It’s pretty easy but this is just a video to show you how I do it. Let me know if you have any suggestions to share with everyone. Please leave a comment below and share your suggestions or opinions.
Greg Is Going To End Up In Jail – 2017
September 3rd Day In The Life
I’m starting an 8-week prep and my official weigh in this morning was 154.8. I made my favorite breakfast this morning and it’s just protein (pick the one you want), salsa, avocado
The sunflowers have all opened up and they are so pretty. I’m impressed because it’s the first time I’ve tried to grow sunflowers and they are still alive.
We have a ton of hot peppers that are growing too. We have habaneros, ghost, Carolina reapers, red chili and jalapeno peppers.
BGE cut some of the tree’s down for us and Greg said a man came by and asked if he could take all the cut wood so that works out well for us. We still have a dead tree in the yard that you can see through It’s crazy to look at.
One of the stumps has a ton of ants and termites so Greg set it on fire to see if we could get rid of those bugs. I’m so terrified of fire and I was so worried the police were going to come and make a big deal about the whole situation.
That Shoe Life – 2015
Greg and I tried the Boom Chicka Pop and we are not fans of that popcorn. I guess we will give them to the crows. Greg’s pineapple is still growing and we are doing our best to keep them alive. We also have a huge bag of concord grapes and they smell amazing. I wish Y’all could smell them. I’ve never had grapes that actually taste like grapes smell. I think we need to figure out how to make our own wine. I will add that to my bucket list.
I went through my shoe cabinet to take inventory of what I have and I’m also going through all my purses too.
I was hanging out on snapchat a lot this evening too while it rained cats and dogs outside.
Working On Video Ideas – 2014
I woke up this morning thinking it was a weight training night but it’s actually a cardio night. It’s all good and I’ve got goals, and I need to look amazing in my jeans and boots.
Why does my nose always start itching when I get on camera to do video. Tonight I made a video to explain how I manage to get a gallon of water in per day. I would love to answer any of your health and fitness related questions if you leave them for me. I just want to help people as much as I can.
I’m working on some new video ideas to so if you have any requests be sure to leave them below for me.
