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.
** 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.
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.
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.
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.
I haven't stopped smiling since the time clock on the Ole Miss and Bama game hit 0:00 and the final score on the board was 23-17. Yes my Rebels beat the topped ranked team in the nation.
I did have to check and make sure it wasn't a dream this morning. Thanks to the Commercial Appeal for confirming it.
Not only did we beat Bama but we hosted ESPN Game day for the first time ever. Don't the guys look cute in their bow ties? But why didn't someone tell Lee that seersucker is for summer and not to wear it in October (1).
The fans got really excited and both goal posts came down and went on a tour of The Grove and The Square. There is a video out there of someone surfing on a piece through The Grove (2).
There they go to The Square. I worked that that Abner's they are going by at four corners. And across the street is the Chevron station with the famous chicken on the stick (3).
We are truly blessed that we have such an amazing AD with a sense of humor now. He is also asking those who helped take them down donate some to help with the fines and replacement.
I don't know about the rest of the Rebel family but I was on pins and needles waiting on the standings to come out today. Well worth the wait we are ranked #3 in the nation.
One of my cousins is getting married in November. He is a Bama alum and didn't look at the schedule when the date was picked because they are getting married on the day Bama plays LSU. Thankfully we play a small school team that probably won't be on TV. He will be in a world of trouble if the ceremony is scheduled during game time.
I am trying to figure out something to wear to the wedding and have decided to buy something new instead of pushing myself to be able to shop in my own closet (yes I probably should be pushing). I have decided to finally give Modcloth a try. Has anyone ordered from them?
A few I like but can't decide on.
This one comes in black too and would make a great little black dress.
