Zoo Lights

Saturday night S asked if I wanted to join them and some other friends for the Zoo Lights.  I decided it would be fun after the Rebels beat state.  I didn't drink that much whiskey during the game so I didn't feel like I would embarrass them.  It isn't easy to get a picture of these 4 clowns.  The below are the three best shots I got on my camera.  

The flash isn't working on my phone half the time anymore.  I took my camera and both H and G-man think they need to use it too.  

H had to take a picture of his bestie while we were waiting on dinner.

G-man took a picture of H on the way to the Zoo.

G-man couldn't make it through dinner.

November Goals

A new month means a fresh start.  I totally bombed out for my October goals.  I spent two weeks sick with a really nasty sinus infection.  The month started off great but tanked pretty fast.  I can't change that all I can do is not let it get to me.

November Goals

**  Hit the gym 3 days a week.

**  Complete the JessicaSmith TV 30 Fall fitness challenge.

** Start on making Christmas ornaments

** Get half of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving.

**  One thing a week for myself.

My new pretty

I got a new little pretty tonight.  I was off yesterday and decided to load some new tunes to my old IPod to get me motivated to workout again after being sick.  It would not turn on or charge at all.  I can't complain it was at least 7 years old.  On my way home I picked up this cute blue one.  I don't need much to hold music just for the gym.  

Any suggestions for new music for my workouts?

Motivation Monday

I have been sick for two weeks.  I got a really nasty sinus infection that just didn't want to go away.  I finally gave in and went to the doctor last week for the miracle cocktail shot.  It still took until yesterday to start feeling close to myself again. I am looking forward to doing some light workouts this week.  I will admit I have been craving a good workout for a couple of days.  This is a good sign right?  It means that I have hit that turning point where workouts are concerned.

No I am still not talking about the fact Ole Miss beat Bama on Saturday.   Something almost as exciting happened this week.  I paid off my student loans.  It is so exciting though it does make me feel old too.   Since the amount for my student loans is in my monthly budget for the whole year I decided I get to blow the amount for the remaining two months on something fun for me.  Now it is just a matter of deciding what I want to spend it on.  I have it narrowed it down to three things.





I am determined that the only thing that goes for the house is a new TV for my living room.  Yes it was so tempting to add a Kitchenaid mixer to the list but I don't have anywhere for it to be stored.
It is so hard to decide which one I want more.  But I am waiting until November until I go to purchase what I decide on.

October Goals

Yes I am late coming up with my goals for the month of October.  September went okay.  I didn't hit the goal of eating fruit everyday I lost control of that one once I went to New Orleans at the middle of the month.  And I didn't hit the gym three days of week once I dropped the Jeep off for repairs because I decided not to go back for the gym card I left on the key chain.  But I did do three videos a week to replace those workouts.  

October Goals

**  Hit the gym 3 days a week.

**  Three morning workouts a week.

**  Eat more fruits and vegetables.

**  Three arm workouts a week.  

** Finish two cross stitch projects.

** Start making Christmas ornaments.

What did y'all come up with for goals this month?
