Birthday Wishes

Another day at school gave me a better idea of what yoga is like. It was much better. I think I liked it more since I was so sore. All day I was avoiding standing up or sitting down for fear I would have to do one or the other. I would sit in my class and dread the moment I had to get back up. Pretty pathetic, but I can’t help it! I went lap swimming at work yesterday which carried on over to day.

I even got myself to hit the gym with my brother today. How? I have NO clue. Once I got there it wasn’t so bad..You know, besides the actual working out part. Now my forearms are sore along with my legs and shoulders. Tomorrow it’ll probably be my core. That’s ok though-It needs a little taming. Haha

I would like to mention a couple things though. What is with the BO in my yoga class?! Seriously people..Al-natur-al only goes so far before you start deterring people from standing near you. Maybe find a natural soap to put under your arm pits? Please? (Not that any of them are reading this)

Although I like yoga more today, I still have a love hate relationship with the “downward dog” pose. It gives me a head ache. Why must I hang my head and give myself a head rush? Uhg

Today is my little brothers birthday. He turns 15 today…I think?

I just say 6 and stick with that.

January 9th-Oh how time flies. Little Joey getting all grown up. It's looking like a fire hazard now.

Maybe some time I’ll take some yoga pictures. I think I’m getting the hang of some of them. Probably not that names though.

On another note Math is still good. My homework is to watch a documentary. Not so bad, right?

Math would be even better though if maybe the guy in front of me pulled up his pants. And for your enjoyment I even got a picture. I figure I shouldn’t be the only one who feels they need to gouge their eyes out. Keep it mind-this is AFTER he pulled his pants up. It was way worse before.

Just run me over

So after my trip to the gym last night the soreness (is that even a word?) eased in. I woke up at 5am and felt a little bit of it and as the day wore on it got worse. I figured…well…No big deal. Keep it up. You won’t regret it and what’s a little bit of soreness (whatever, if it isn’t I’ll MAKE it a word) anyway?

I took a nap because that’s just what you have to do after getting up that early. When I woke up it was a little worse again. I sat down and had a silent argument with myself about working out again.

Logical Danie says:

It will help because you’re sore and doing cardio will help. Plus you don’t want to fall behind do you?

Whiny Danie says:

I don’t wanna!

Eventually I got myself to go to work early and lap swim. I ended up with half a mile of kicking and swimming.

I’m telling you right now. It made a worse. It feels a little bit like a baby rhino came and trampled me and came back with some friends for more. Ouch.

Anyway-All the whining aside, i’m determined to keep it up. I don’t need to lose weight, just tone and maintain.

January 8th-I know...My pictures are super boring right now. But if you read what this says it should give you a good laugh. It's from my lifeguard manual/book I had to study for my re-certification class. Classic!

If you want another laugh for the day read the reviews for these gummy bears:

I honestly don’t know how they can justify selling them after the reviews they got. Haha!

With all that being said I bid you adieu.

Starting over

With the new year comes new things within the first few weeks of the year. I started a new schedule at work and school. So far so good. I’m already really tired, but that will go away with time as I get used to my schedule.

This time though, I get to sleep in on Tuesday and Thursday mornings which will be a huge help. I’ll probably use that as last minute time for homework if needed, but I only have one real class so I don’t think that’ll be necessary.

January 5th-Oh ice cream. A friend and enemy.

January 6th-My alarms for M/W/F mornings. There's an extra one for M/W's so I wake up from laying down and don't end up late for my second shift of the day.  There's a reason they are black-It's because it is a DARK HOUR! Haha

First day of school went really well. I’m only taking Math 105 (basically for people who aren’t majoring in Math, most likely Art) and Yoga (cause I needed the credit).

Math was good. I was surprised by how much I remembered so that was nice and the teacher was great. Yoga was a bit…Strange. I didn’t find all the weird words to be useful-but whatever floats your boat. It was my first time taking it and it wasn’t bad. The teacher was nice and not too…What’s the word? Let’s go with “flowery”.

I think I can get through this term ok. I keep saying “A C will do just fine” but I know I’m too much of a perfectionist to settle for that.

January 7th-When push comes to shove you start to remember those things you tried so hard to forget. Just one. More. Term!

I know-Boring post. But I’m off to the gym (another thing I’m starting all over with) to let my brother kick my butt.

Adios.

Baby it’s cold outside

If any of you are from Portland, you’ll know that we get a lot of rain. And if we don’t get any rain it tricks us into thinking it’s super nice out by showing the sun. Then once you get outside you realize it’s freaking cold out and run back in to get your hat, coat, gloves, scarf, and an extra pair of pants.

Ok so maybe it isn’t THAT cold. But it’s pretty dang chilly even with the sun out. We’re now in the time of year where we get a ridiculous amount of fog. Usually I wouldn’t mind, but the other night I was driving back from Washington after a visit with Pete and had to go 50mph in a 70 because I couldn’t see a few feet in front of me. Quite frightening. Obviously I made it back safe, but it got me home a lot later than I had planned.

Anyways-the week has finally ended and I’m starting to get nervous for the term to start. It’s stupid actually..All I have is Math and Yoga. How hard can it be? Well I HATE Math..so pretty hard. I should be more optimistic. I just have one more term and I’m free. FREE PEOPLE!

I’ve been kicking myself for slacking on the save-the-dates. I need to get them in the mail. It’s terrible. But postage actually costs money so that’s made it a lot harder. However I’m full of excuses. I’ll send them soon. I promise.

January 3rd-I got a sealer for wax to seal my letters. I don't know why I like doing this so much, but I just love the extra special touch it adds to letters. I love getting them in the mail, but I also love sending them. Anyway, I bought some Harry Potter forever stamps about a week ago and sealed some letters and stamped them. It's the little things I enjoy sometimes. :)

My little sister, Natalie, has a friend who lives in Tillamook near the coast and she stayed there a couple days this week. I offered to drive over and pick her up. I didn’t expect the weather to be so wonderful though! Once the sun went down it got cold, but it wasn’t even windy on the beach.

I got Pete to come along with me though so that was extra nice. We made a day out of it..After we picked up his work suits we got lunch and headed out. Once we picked up Natalie we watched the sunset on the beach and got some good pizza.

January 4th-Natalie, Pete, and myself on the beach. It made for a nice day. Who would have thought the beach would make a nice trip in January in Oregon?? Good surprise though.

With all the excitement of the day (and the driving) I’d say it’s my bed time.

See you next time!

Challenge Accepted!

Happy New Year everyone!

You know…sometimes when I’m browsing facebook everyone is posting things about their plans for the new year and what their new resolutions are. I decided-who cares?! I don’t wanna do anything!

So-that’s what I did. Nothing. Well, not completely. I went up to Olympia to see Pete and we just hung out. It was really nice. Last New Years he proposed so it was an anniversary of sorts.

I haven’t really made any resolutions..Mostly because they’re all things I’ve been trying to put into practice anyway. Things like:

Brush and floss

Keep my room clean (FAIL!)

Put my laundry away right away (Yeah…Fail)

Pass my classes (Success!)

Read my bible everday

And as life continues on I add things as I go like:

Don’t bust out of my wedding dress (So far so good)

Save money for wedding (How does that work when you’re currently paying for the wedding? I’ll add that to my questions to be answered list)

Be a good fiance and eventually good wife

and finally-this photo challenge. 🙂

So it begins.

Poor Peter hates his photo being taken. I feel i’ve been quite nice to him since we first got together. But I warned him he would have to participate. He said he forgives me.

January 1st-Peter and I glare at eachother. Yep. I love him.  I'll try and keep the sappy comments to my self.

Today I finally e-mailed the deacons at my church to reserve it for my wedding. I know…I’m a slacker. But I’ve been quite productive today at work and at home.

Ok..That’s not completely true. Unless you consider napping productive. Which I do. So there.

January 2nd-I've been reading through the wedding policy for my church to make sure I cover everything. Someone told me it's a right of passage. Ha!

Well that’s all for now. And so the year goes on. See you all for the next post.
