Here is my choice of activity after school ~

^ Yes, really – The Kardashians

I am not sure if it is the coldness, my soreness, or what, that made me want to come home and do nothing – I never feel like that.

When I got home from school, I did pack my weekend Southern Indiana bag – I will be traveling again, since Ben will be gone.  After this task, I just felt like chilling out for a bit.  I did not want to work on Beachbody Biz, I did not want to clean, did not want to do schoolwork, and did not want to workout ~ I just wanted to sit.  I thought about reading one of my magazines from the “No Time To Read” pile…

I am not usually an avid watcher of the Kardashians, but for whatever reason, I did decide to tape two episodes last week –> I think is because the preview was all about Kris and Kim and how the divorce started. 

I have many great shows DVR’d right now, I am not sure what made me go with the Kardashians ~ but I did.  It was nice to simply relax – but one episode is plenty for me, and now I feel like I should get up & do something productive.  I am thinking that a small, fun workout is in my near future for this evening.  Which workout is small and fun?

Turbo Jam, of course!

^ The most fun?  Turbo Jam Kickin’ Core!! 

I am considering this workout for later this evening.  However, I also feel like a Rest Day sounds nice.  I have worked hard this week with P90X!  Ben keeps talking about how sore his biceps are!  That makes me feel even better, because I think this is the first time I have ever heard Ben mention soreness – ever!

Here is something new I tried last night ~


^ Xocai Power Squares –> healthy chocolate!

Seriously? Healthy chocolate? Yes!



This tasted amazing (!!!) ~ And also amazing N.Facts for such sweetness!  Want to know more about the benefits – or even try a piece for yourself?  Just talk to KT ~ she has all the information!  It really is supposed to be a very healthful chocolate that most people take 2-3 times daily. 

I found it very interesting to learn –> Xocai is given to children with ADHD, rather than meds.  I even know one parent from home who has just recently started this with her son ~ I am looking forward to hearing her feedback.

Ben just walked in the door & guess what he picked up for dinner!  Yes, our Thursday Night Subway ~ Perfect!

Looking for that tiny bit of motivation I need to change into my gear and get my workout on.  Sometimes just looking at a few pics like this one get me pumped up and ready to work hard!

Tomorrow is Friday (!!!) ~ and I promise some great posts are in store.  Lately I feel like I have just been rambling.  When I write too many rambling posts, I start to get that thought – What is the purpose of this blog really?

I will leave it at that, before I ramble even more…

I want to end this post with a poem that I love.  A reader reminded me of this poem when she posted her resolutions, one of which was this –> Also, enjoy life more and not take things for granted. Slow down and enjoy the small things in life.  What an awesome resolution, right?

I feel like this is a poem we can all relate to ~


Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say “Hi”?
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift -Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
