One is silver and the others gold

I was due for a hair cut. It was funny though. After the hairdresser cut my hair, I looked in the mirror and it looked distinctly similar to hers. Hmm.. then I looked at her daughters pictures and they both had the same hair cut. Someone likes the short bob with side bang a tad much ehh;)

Oatmeal treat

So like all y'all I eat oatmeal. every. single. morning.

My boyfriend doesnt really get my love for it. On the weekends, this will be a conversation we'll have:

Andrew: You wana make a special breakfast tomorrow morning?

Me: Umm.. *Awkward pause*

Andrew: Oh. Yeah.

Hahaha, then he realizes I cant go without my oatmeal :) French toast, eggs..aint got nothing on my breakfast. It is typically just 1/2 cup oatmeal and a tablespoon of Peanut butter. Its seriously so simple, so easy and so satisfying.

Being at my rents house and all I got to add this yumminess :)

Hope you like this picture. Im pretty awkward.

I also used my favorite coffee mug ;)

So for today, I plan to go get my hairs cut and then a long gym sesh at my favorite gym in the world! Its so nice to have the day off! I have an eye doctor appt. to get new glasses..exciting!!

Tonight, sushi and a fun band is on the agenda. Have a great day everyone! :)

Its been a while.. :)

Damn, really need to stay on top of this thing! Life is good. I LOVE my job. I am working at Healthy Maine Partnership. Becoming the intern there was seriously such a blessing for me! I dont think I could have gotten any luckier.

We do a lot of out of office stuff, which is great. We are promoting antitobacco films that local middle school and high school students made. The videos are pretty good, too.

Ive also been hangin' out with this man lately..

Thats maa boyfriend.. I sware that my heads not THAT big in real life ;)

My favorite part of my job that I am working on is the diabetes education we are doing. There are a lot of people in the area who just don't know how to manage their diabetes through diet and exercise. We are showing them easy and simple substitutions to make their life healthier. I feel really good about myself using my knowledge to help them.

I really hope this blog "makes it". I would LOVE have to people comment and be able to make somethin' of it :)

How is everyones week going? It is so great there is only 28 days in February.

My trip to St. John is in 5 days and I am more than ready to be out of New England for a little bit!

My New Years Resolutions

1. Do more FUN & spontaneous things!

This was 2 years ago at Spring Fling. It was one of the most fun days of my life! This is my best friend Kara and myself mud wrestling. We just said what the hell -- and jumped in!

2. Be more mindful.

This is SO important to me. I am an anxious person and being in the moment is vital to my own happiness and wellbeing.

3. Only drink once or twice a week.

I really dont like drinking that much and shouldnt be peer pressured into doing it more often than I want!

Blog <3

Hello all.

So this is me. I started a blog to try and help myself get back on the band wagon with exercise and eating healthy. I did great for a year, you know, totally avoiding unhealthy food without missing it and exercising like it was my JOB!
However, lately I have been pretty lazy. I am hoping to start this blog so I know longer feel (and look) like a small beluga whale. Although they certainly are cute in the water, not so much on land.
I want to feel good about myself. Not only look all jacked and toned and HAWT but also I know that I will have more confidence and a higher self esteem. So please feel free to watch me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Long Day!

3 Bud Lights and a shot of Tequlia later.. Im a little crunk.

So today, I got up around 7. I felt like I needed more sleep so I just lounged around in bed and kept thinking how I should get up. But I fell back asleep. Fail! Oops. When I finally did wake up I made myself a bowl of delicious oats and decided that it was time to shake the manski (my boy) awake. I made some coffee for the both of us. It was a pumpkin spice New England Coffee brand. It was delicious!

I went to the gym and did about 20 minutes running at 6.0 and then 10 minutes on the elliptical. I was sooo into this murder-crime show but this old man turned the station and then proceeded to do backwards walking on the tredmill. I figured he would eventually turn back around and enjoy whatever he thought was better than my crime show!

After that, I headed into work. It wasnt too busy tonight. I didnt mind. I made some money then went to the bar and had a few. I saw a man I waited on and he said to me...

"Congratulations on getting off.......................
Uhh.. I mean for getting out of work"
"Thanks.. Sir.."

It was a tad awkward. I recovered though.
