Kick Excuses to the Curb

Standard

Seriously, enough with the excuses on not being able to eat healthy or workout. No, this does not include actual, valid reasons for situations. I’m talking about just plain excuses thrown out to justify an unhealthy action….. For these, I have no sympathy.

      I forgot my lunch and had no choice but to stop by McDonald’s for a Big Mac and large fry.  

     I didn’t have time to cook a healthy meal so I ordered a pizza. 

It’s soooo hard getting up early to go to the gym.

[Insert another lame excuse right here]

Stop coming up with a million excuses how you can’t do something and start coming up with ways you can do something.

One + Four = Life | Feb 2016 (Part 2)

Standard

Welcome to another One + Four = Life posts! Honestly, the last half of the month was a little uneventful. Still a good couple of weeks, though I have been sick with either a mild cold or allergies. Never sure which one anymore.

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life…

me

 

Went to the spinal care doctor because I’ve been having back pain since November. This was my awesome getup before the x-ray (which revealed nothing abnormal). I swear these are 7-XL and made for someone 8 feet tall. I felt like a real-life hobbit. Laughing about the gown was the best part of that 3 hour trip. Yes, 3 hours. In a hospital. Lame city…..

 

 

Saw The Witch on Sunday. Don’t worry, no spoilers on the plot! Honestly, this is a total Redbox experience, not that I feel ripped off going to the theater. It was just not quite worth theater prices. I was confused by the beginning and the family being banned from their community (??) and a lot of the film was slow moving. The creepy parts were really creepy, just needed to be more fast-paced and creepy all the way through. Overall, just okay, but it got us out of the house.

savannah

 

It’s the little things in life….. Here’s our little girl, Savannah, being super cute as always. We flipped the covers over her head and she was peaking out. After our extensive Star Wars viewing over the last month, we instantly joked that she was secretly a Syth Lord.

Seriously, though, that face!!! Cute!!!

 

Switched up my workouts the last few weeks, doing new combinations (especially for lower body) and different moves. Oh… my…. god…. I swear my glutes and hams are sore EVERY… SINGLE… DAY. So I basically feel like this –>

 

 

One + Four = Life | Feb 2016 (Part 1)

Standard

Welcome to another One + Four = Life posts! These are pretty fun to do, though I may not get to them weekly. I’m hoping for bi-monthly because 1) other priorities and 2) my life just isn’t that exciting, sadly.

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life…

Had another nerd out last weekend! Went to see a local improv group at The Off Broadway Theater. They performed “Star Ward”, which was a Mormon-themed Star Wars. Not as funny as the local comedy we saw a few weeks ago but still entertaining!

 

 

Of course, the Super Bowl!! Great defensive game, glad my Broncos won! Best of all, got to chill at home with the hubs and our little girl and eat homemade cauliflower bites and super yummy chicken wings (both made with combo of Frank’s Red Hot and Parmesan). Mmmmm….. 😀

fondue

“For Your Kitchen” (a local kitchen/gadget store) held a hands-on Fondue night on Feb. 13th. Fondue? Yes please! We were given chicken, veggies, batter and sticks and got to make our own dinner. It was a little awkward (we had to share a pot with 4 other people) and slow but a lot of fun. We made a fun, unique memory together which is my favorite part of any activity.

shakes

 

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with Deadpool, wings and shakes?? Okay, we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. This was just a typical Sunday date for us. And it was fantastic! We had awesome wings (at our favorite Wingnuts), saw Deadpool (which was f***ing awesome, btw!!!) and then hit up Warren’s drive through for some shakes. Yes, there are 3 shakes and only 2 of us. If the hubs wants different flavors, he gets 2 small shakes. When we got home, we popped in the last season of Star Wars: Clone Wars and enjoyed our shakes. This was seriously the best day of the weekend!

One + Four = Life | January 2016

Standard

Sooooo…… I forgot about these One + Four = Life posts that I got into last year. These were pretty fun to do, though I may not get to them weekly. I’m hoping for bi-monthly because 1) other priorities and 2) my life just isn’t that exciting, sadly.

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life…

 

A few weekends ago, we went to Slamdance in Park City, which coincided with Sundance. If you don’t know it, look it up. Our first time there, didn’t see any movie stars other than the ones in Director’s Cut (which was crowdfunded by people like us). Crazy navigating the town and parking! We had some crappy pizza, thanks Red Bango… did some window shopping (too artsy for me) and watched the movie. It was a different experience but fun!

 

 

The beginning of the month, I had a fun girls’ night out to celebrate one of my best friend’s birthday. We went to Twiggs Bistro and Martini Bar. Had a pineapple martini (not a pic of my actual drink because I forgot to take one, but this is pretty close) and yummy food. I love going out with my two best friends! We don’t do it often enough but it always puts a smile on my face and makes me realize how lucky I am to have them in my life. Man, have we been through some crap….. LOL

wing nuts

This last weekend, we nerd-ed out! First, we kicked off the night with delicious wings from Wing Nuts Restaurant. We shared the bone-in wings with buffalo chips (not pictured), followed by equally amazing Sub Zero ice cream (not pictured). I love their brownie batter w/chocolate chips and cashews. Mmmmm….. Afterwards, we went to a local theater for a comedy-improv of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

To finish out the weekend, and nerd out session, we went to see the actual Star Wars: The Force Awakens (again) in the theater. I really liked it the first time, in 3-D, but liked it even more this time. Perhaps because I caught some more humor and little things that I missed the first go-around. Seriously, this movie kicks ass!
