Finish the Sentence...

Linking up with Holly and Jake for Finish the Sentence.

Finish the Sentence

1. If calories didn't count, I would eat... all the Mexican Food in sight. This mostly includes any and all Margaritas. Who doesn't like to drink their meals???
2. On my Prom night.... I wore pants first of all...and my belly was exposed...and instead of hairspray I sprayed my already hardened hair with spray deodorant. I kinda looked like I had a serious case of dandruff. My date and I lost all our money that was given to us by our parents in a bounce house. (We were so cool) and he then decided to end our good fortune of a night with a punch to his windshield. (We were also really smart) The End.
3. When I go to the store, I always buy... I actually don't get to go to the grocery store because my husband doesn't trust me to stick to the list but that's because when I do go to the grocery story I buy whatever I can that he "forgot" to put on the list. So...yeah, I get it.
4. Family functions typically... are chaotic. There is never enough alcohol.
5. I think my blog readers... are literally my 10 friends. Like, no joke, I'm going to hang out with them all this weekend.
6. I'd much rather be..... in a pool somewhere in the Bahamas. (Not an ocean - please see previous post regarding "man eaters") Sipping on whatever the hell drink I want because calories don't count.
7. I have an obsession with.... spicy hummus, make-up, work-out attire and Sons of Anarchy...Maybe in that order.
8. My work friends.... do not exist. I'm a horrible person and my work friends have told me they cannot stand to be around me. One person mentioned that I smelled of pizza that has come back up and another person said my hair lip is so bad that it's hard to have a conversation with me without staring right at it. Okay, but really I am a stay at home mom. My work friends really do not exist.
9. When I created my Facebook account.... I did it in absolute secrecy.
10. My least favorite word is... canal, fart, cream...hahaha....Canal Fart Cream...sorry...immature is another least favorite of mine.
11. I really don't remember.... what I ever saw in my ex husband. Seriously. He showed me his abs the first night we met and made fun of my shoes. Winner, winner chicken dinner Amy!!! Good one!
12. Justin Bieber.... should have been added to #10

Freaking Man Eaters...

It's been so long. Too long, right? Have you missed me? 

Don't answer that.

I'm bored and had nothing of value to write about today. Well except a bucket list. And who doesn't like to read other people's bucket lists!! Okay..well if that doesn't sound appealing than maybe just coming up with your own sounds fun. Yes?


Top Ten Tuesday 

 "Things I Want To Do Before I Die" or also known as, Top 10 Things On Your Bucket List.

Stewart Street
  1.  Visit New York City at Christmas Time. (Okay so if you happen to follow the link your going to see that the blogger that posted this actually had this as one of her items, actually her number 1 - these are not in order of favorites btw) But in all fairness, I so badly want to go to NYC during the Winter, specifically Christmas Time. I swear I do. Ask the Hubs. I have said it time and time again. I have been to New York twice and it's a fascinating city. It literally feels like you have been thrown right in the middle of a movie. But I want Christmas Time and I want the lights and the ice skaters. I want all of it.
  2. Shark Cage Diving - Okay, so until yesterday this seemed way more doable and exciting. Then I happen to see a video on yahoo about a man who was diving with the Great Whites in South Africa (first mistake - that place is swarming with the "man eaters") And now it seems less exciting and more life threatening. Still. What an adrenaline rush. 
  3. Run a Full Marathon - This seems absolutely insane to me. Insane and stupid and not fun. I can't even get to 6 yet. But, to be able to say I did this, would be worth all the damn pain. Maybe. 
  4. Take my Family to a Foreign Country -  I want to be able to give them (my kids) an experience that they will never forget. That will be a first for all of us. That will make memories for years to come.
  5. Feel Confident in Myself - I don't think I have to be a certain size or look good in a bikini (Umm but that would be nice) I just want to be able to feel like I am taking care of myself the best way that I can and feel good about the person that I am.  This includes the kind of friend, mother and wife I am. Always a work in progress I suppose. 
  6. Instruct a Fitness Class - I think Body Combat might be my favorite. Or any kind of Turbo Kick. I would love to make that a job of mine some day. And I'm not getting younger. 
  7. Come up with a potion to become younger - Okay I'm kidding...sort of...Okay, No I'm not. 
  8. Travel to a New City - Jacob and I have talked about this off and on. But once a year, maybe twice, I think it would be fun to discover a new place together. Short and sweet.
  9. Watch my Kids Grow Up - But not just grow up. To feel good with their choices. To be humble. To be kind to everyone. To be sympathetic. To be gracious. I would love for my kids to go to college. I would love for my kids to get married and have babes and live "the dream"...but if it's not ever something they want for themselves than at the very least I want to be able to see them become good people. I want them to be happy.
  10. Buy a House with a Pool -  Can we move yet? I hate this house. Although I'm doing my best to learn to appreciate and love what we have but.....can we move yet?

Taggin' Tuesday: Fitness Survey

Today I am being completely lazy.

Thankfully my friend, Crystal Michelle over at www.crystalmichellesmess.com came to my rescue. I'm taggin' up with her so I don't have to put much thought into today's post. Please forgive me.

Body Pump was a good one this morning. My legs are still shaking. And this survey is right up my alley.

Taggin' Tuesday: Fitness Survey

1. Five fitness items I can’t live without:
  • My "fun" workout tanks. They make it more fun to get dressed and go work out.
  • Polar FT4 Fitness Heart Rate Monitor and Calorie Counter (Feel naked without it)
  • My Iphone with my 'Workin It' Playlist. I will not run if I don't have it on me. Music moves me.
  • My earbuds to listen to said music
  • My sports bras from Target rock my world. I love them and all the amazing colors they come in.
2. Favorite pre-workout snack/meal:
 If it's a morning work out then I have egg whites and/or half a whole grain sandwich round with all natural peanut butter. If it's an afternoon/evening work out then all I really need is my Spark!!

3. On my fitness bucket list:

  • I want to inspire someone to the point that they want me to help them get where they want to be because I got where I wanted to be and kept at it.
  • Add weights to the bicep track in Body Pump. Those damn bottom halves are going to kill me.
  • I want to get up to 7 miles and be able to do it at least two times a week.
  • Run a 10k
  • Run a half marathon and earn my 13.1 sticker
  • Look good naked
  • Become more educated in Nutrition
  • To get through one damn work out without having to pull up my pants!! Just one!!
4. Must-have tech tools:
My Phone for my music and my HRM watch and chest strap

5. Top exercise gear:
Even though I want new shoes, I have to admit mine have pretty much got me through all my work outs. I can run in them, spin in them, do body pump and lunges and jumps and combat. All of it. They never slip, they never hurt, they never cause blisters. They just aren't colorful enough for me!! 
I have lots of different sports bras now. My Nike one and the racer backs from Target are my faves. 
I love, love, love my UnderArmour pants. They never show sweat and I can move in them easily. I just want more of them.

6. Motivational mantra:
Every day is a choice. And in each day are smaller but still important choices. One bad choice doesn't have to dictate your entire day/month/year. You screwed up, you move on. You make better choices. You chose to be healthy, whatever that is for you. But you do it for you.

 7. Next big exercise goal:

I want to be able to add more weights in Body Pump. I want my upper body to be stronger. And I want to run a 10k easily. 

8. Favorite cardio exercise:
Body Attack - No Question

9. Favorite strength move:
Is Plyo a strength move?? Haha..I love Plyo - like a kid I love it. Until I have to follow it up with high knees, then I hate it. I also love the shoulder and back track in Pump. I can feel it right away. And it burns ohhh...so good!
