New Beginnings

I feel like I’m always starting a new health kick or new work out plan without much success and very little support. But I have planned to start back up on my Couch to 10K program which puts me through 13 weeks of walk/run intervals. I’m on Week 1, Day 2….don’t get so excited. Also, with my new move to the ‘burbs and JP’s first day of nursing school started yesterday, I realize that I have more alone time. I should be doing something better with myself while she’s busy learning and making her career better. So, with a new work out routine, I’m also, albeit, slowly, starting to eat better.

It’s amazing that already after only a few days of eating meals prepared at home, that I feel better, am less tired, and have a tad bit more energy. I should start including a daily vitamin and making coffee at home, but baby steps, right? I hope to get into a routine where I’m still having fulfilled days, even though many of my activities (ok, most) will be solo. Activities like fall sports, sewing class/tutorials, new workout classes, playing around with Photoshop more and trying out some Pinterest recipes fill my mind of worthy activities that I’d like to try.

Have you tried any neat activities to fill your solo time? I’d love to hear about them!


Pictures in the Potty

While at Jacks N Joe restaurant, I dipped into the bathroom before we made our way out of the restaurant and spied an adorable frame over the bathroom mirror! Who would have guessed? The entire restaurant had a trendy, cute vibe to it and I even commented to JP that I liked the artwork inside of the restaurant, but I wasn’t really expecting to find any cute decorations inside the actual bathroom. Well I shouldn’t have been surprised! I found this little ditty in the little girls room:

Bathroom in Jacks N Joe

Yes, I’m that creeper that snaps pics in the bathroom…but at least I avoided the dead-on snap shot so you have no images of me in the actual potty 🙂  I’m also lovin that light above the sink … which the sink had an awesome faucet too! What a cute design idea!

Top Pins of the Week 2

I’m addicted to Pinterest, like every other person on this planet right now. I discovered my newest obsession: mash ups by Girl Talk via Pinterest and I’ve decided that Pinterest is now the greatest thing ever, right now primarily bc of Girl Talk. Apparently Jennifer Aniston listens to Girl Talk which made her about 10 x’s more amazing than she already is. But, I digress! Top pins of this week are:
