My life for the next few weeks...

Yes march madness is my favorite holiday (yes i just called it a holiday)
Yes i do sit on my couch in my PJs ALL DAY and watch all of the games.  
This is the one time of year that i am the least productive because i am wrapped up into all of the games. 

Sadly, i was so busy with school and my business that i was not able to fill out a bracket :-( but i am not worried because i usually end up having a horrible bracket after the tournament! 

Who else is a fanatic?  What have you dont to get out of doing something so you can stay home and watch the game(s)?

...Friday FITspiration...

Friday, February 7, 2014

Well ladies THIS is the time to start working towards that summer body you want to flaunt when it gets warmer outside! 

Start TODAY to start working towards your health and fitness goals.
Stop making excuses and get up and do something about it!
Start a habit NOW and you will see how easy it will be to carry out that habit throughout the rest of 2014.

First things first...make realistic goals. It is common for people to lose 1-2 pounds a week. More than that is usually a sign of something unhealthy. 

Set a plan of action:  How you will eat healthier? will you drink more water? what days/times can you incorporate a workout or fitness routine into your already busy day?
People who get things done do not always have time to go everything they need to do...THEY MAKE TIME!

MAKE TIME to reach your health and fitness goals. Make 2014 YOU year.

...Dear Winter: PLEASE GO AWAY!...

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Dear Winter:

You are really messing up my groove.
I miss seeing and feeling the warm sun on my face.
I am not a fan of this white stuff that you are throwing all over the place
and i am not a fan of having to wear 3 layers of clothes to get out of my house.

Negative temperatures are not my favorite thing to encounter when i have to leave my house at 6AM.
And i am NOT a fan of constantly shoveling my drive way and steps to get rid of the inches of snow that magically appear while i am sleeping.

My winter clothes are not the cutest and i am sick f wearing my snow boots.  
Flip flops and summer dresses are my favorite things to wear and i am sure those are not the best things to wear right now. 

So winter...have your last few cold nights and days and quickly leave!

Someone who enjoys Summer weather

...My Superbowl Sunday...

Monday, February 3, 2014

All of my friends KNOW that i am a huge sports fan
I love all sports and enjoy watching and playing them.

Well as i was getting my daily chores done i decided to turn on my TV 
to watch a little bit of the pre game show for the big superbowl game
TO my surprise this is what popped up on my screen...


Now two things popped into my head
(1) Why did this happen out of all of the days that i needed to watch TV
(2) i can not go anywhere because i had food in the over, on the stove, and on the grill ( i was making my meals for the whole week)
(3) i guess this is a sign that i need to be more productive and get some work done

I spent over an hour on the phone with technical support and it was concluded that there is something wrong with the connection in my house. Soooo i will have to wait until later this week until someone can come out and take a look at it. 

So what did i do? I tried to stream it on my computer (and ipad) but i guess there were so many other people streaming it that the connection was slow and breaking up every few seconds.

So what did i do?
I just sat in my kitchen, cooked all of my food, and got homework done and business work done. 

After scrolling through my facebook news feed and instagram feed i quickly realized that i was not missing much. so i was not 2 upset by the turn of events

And besides the best part of the super bowl is usually the commercials and the half time show...things you can catch on youtube...so that is exactly what i did. just scanned youtube and i didnt have to sit through the whole game to see it. 

I think this is something i may do from now on.  I will only watch the game if there are teams that i root for playing (lets go COWBOYS!! :-P ) 

But all in all it was not a completely ruined day. I got all of my homework done, got caught up on some business and managed to even call my family and speak with them.  So in return it ended up being a very product day!

...52 Week Money Challenge...

Monday, January 20, 2014

I was asked to attend a wedding in Africa in December of 2014. 

My first thought...how am i going to afford a trip like that!??

I am very good at budgeting and i am also good at traveling!  I am really good at researching and finding good deals.  and thank goodness for things like Groupon that make it easier to travel and get great deals on activities and places to eat. 

I was doing my usual blog browsing and i came across this graphic:

What you do is you get a jar...box...can...Tupperware...you get whatever you want and each week you deposit a certain amount of money in it. 
By the end of the year you should have OVER $1000 to do what you need to do with it.

My weakness is going to starbucks.  They have an amazing passion tea that I LOVE buuuut i does not agree with my budget each month.  my solution: i found a very similar tea on Amazon that i purchased (for a really good price) and i will make my own tea.  The excess money that i will have each week/month from those extra expenses that i am cutting back on will go towards this challenge.  

So at the end of the year when i am ready to go on my trip, i will have MORE than enough spending money to have fun with! I will not have to wait and fit the trip into my budget at the end of the year.  I will not have to stress about not being able to enjoy some good food or go shopping while i am there! 

So this is my challenge for the year.  
Who else would like to join?
Is anyone else doing any other challenges?
Please feel free to share! :-)
