risky business

i decided to make my roast chicken for dinner tonight
i found a 3 pound bird while at the grocery store…and did my happy dance
yep, right there in the meat aisle… i was shaking my groove thang

meh, in the middle of the day the grocery store is not as packed as you would think
that made me sad
so many people missing out on my kick ass moves

i digress.

making dinner to impress is huge pressure on a good day
even if you are cooking something you have made a million times before.

so imagine my stress level, making something i never have before…and hoping for the best
oy!
my belly ached i was so nervous.

So here is my bird – which i gotta tell you was a tough prep.  if you know me…i have a thing about raw chicken
thank god i was on my own preping this thing…cause i was literally gagging touching it.
too much info?
yeah i know…anyways back to the bird…

here is my veggie of choice this evening…which was so damn delish..it was eaten up in seconds!!


and of course my plate of goodness (notice the gravy i made from scratch – yes i know..i rock lol)

it was a success….a 5 star success apparently.
phew – thank god!

dishes are done, leftovers put away
and i have a smile that just won’t quit

hope your night was as blissful as mine

me lazy? i think not

i have A LOT going through my head this morning, but i am going to attempt to stay on one topic.
wish me luck!

something happened to me over the weekend
i got struck by some sort of motivational bug and i have been going over things in my head non stop

i guess it came to me while i was sitting watching a movie
i thought to myself…self you are so lazy.

lazy????

i can’t remember the last time i could afford the luxury of being lazy.
it seems my life is non stop.  go go go…and then for good measure…go some more.
by the end of the day…i am exhausted and drop in to bed
wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

just a year ago…cooking dinner and tidying the house was my only work out.

today, i am far from lazy.

lately i have been going through the motions at the gym
i know what needs to get done and so i go in and do it

the one thing about me is…as much as my life is about routine
routine can get very boring.
and the last thing i want to start feeling is bored with the gym

over the weekend i got inspired and motivated and switched up my plan in my head a bit

so yesterday – on my day off of the gym may i add
i went to the gym.
i increased all my weights.  i took my time after each set…gave myself time to breathe
and mentally prepare myself for the next set.
i didn’t rush.
i am always in a rush…whatever it is i am doing…because i always feel like there isn’t enough time.
i told myself to slow down

it was kick ass.
kick ass i say.

by the end of the weights, my heart was beating so fast and my muscles were so shaky
i felt like i just got off of the elliptical from a half hour work out.
it was awesome.

i am off to the gym at lunch.
that’s right…i said it.  at lunch.  this is a first.

i am only going to do the elliptical though, because today my body feels the extra weights i just incorporated
and also i don’t have the time to do a full work out.

so when lunch time rolls around…i will be off to the gym…grab lunch on my way home
and eat at my desk
oh the luxuries of working from home
this morning, i walked the dog…took her for a drive to get a coffee
then sat on my balcony soaking in the morning sun
what a way to start the day…getting kissed by the sun…

life is good.
