Thoughts and stuff. In bullets.

‘Scuse my uber boring title of this post, but it’s what I got tonight, folks 😉

I give you…thoughts and stuff. In bullets. 

  • Ever since I proclaimed about living more and chronicaling less, I’ve felt like I’m in a weird limbo with this blog (though, note the pretty new layout? Thank free WordPress template – lol – but it’s pretty, right??). How often to write. What to write. IF to write. So I’m sure when I post will continue to be random and topics will be all over the place. I apologize in advance? I’ll find my groove again, I think, I’m just ruminating (and living!)
  • I have barely seen M all week. We have had opposite evening schedules this week and a few unexpected meetings for M, including one impinging on our weekly mid-week date night in (insert sad face). Needless to say, our Friday night date night in can’t come soon enough.
  • I’m having a hard time not can’t wait-ing for the weekend lately. Sometimes I guess we’re ‘allowed’ to look forward (a little too much) to the weekend, right? I am working on shifting my focus and getting through some frustrating work stuff and focusing on things I am loving, like all things barre n9ne of course. (lots of teaching coming up, love!!)
  • Speaking of barre n9ne, check out this Q&A with one of our rockstars, Amanda. We celebrated one year since the 60 day challenge officially rolled out and she’s been doing it since day one. 53 lbs down people!!! The new challenge kicked off today and I am loving all of the before and after pics I am seeing of everyone doing the challenge now, it is absolutely incredible. Go b9’ers go!!
  • I had a hilarious feigned Twitter ‘fight’ with my sis today to snap us both out of grumpy moods. It was hysterical, you’ll have to check it out for yourself but I’m still laughing 😉
  • I love impromptu me nights. Like tonight. See aforementioned bullet on not seeing M much this week. That’s pretty much the only upside, having a me night tonight and catching up on Chopped 😉
  • As we enter August, I’ll be damned if I am going to let the summer days and nights slip away. There will be lots of living-the-shit out of summer up in here. Complete with a day trip to Maine this weekend, another #lakation coming up, and more 😉
  • Since writing about my challenges anew, I am still debating on WTF to do about a bike. I DO have a mountain bike stored at my sister’s and I am starting to lean towards testing the waters (er, roads?) with that first and seeing how I do. Then investing in a bike. But we’ll see. I really just want to get out there and want M to as well, and budget-wise might be the way to go this season and invest next season…and hopefully a house won’t be *that* far out of our future where we can properly store them etc…#ruminating
  • On the topic of aforementioned challenges, I had a few killer runs this week! *patting self on back* Sometimes renewed focus helps me mentally I guess huh?
  • I booked a quick trip to Tampa in February to visit one of my closest friends who I NEVER get to see and I couldn’t be happier!! Finally found a great price and while it is 6 months away, February HERE vs. February in FL will be glorious. As will M finally meeting Amy and her husband Eric (and us both meeting their son!!). I am pretty sure M and Eric will have a bromance. They are SO similar in humor and personality. Cannot wait. 😉

Holy cow. I guess I had a lot of little rambles on my mind. I kinda dig bullets. They’re cool. 😉 Now if you’ll ‘scuse me, I’ll go back to my me night now. Thanks for reading 😉

  1. I have to say, our fake twitter fight was THE highlight of the day today. By far. ❤
    <–and um I don't really have a twizzler anywhere near me so will a straw work in a pinch?? I got plenty of those around here hehe

    1. That was awesome! I was explaining it to M last night and he kinda laughed but I told him he has to read them for full effect. Maybe we just think we are funnier than we are 😉 mmm twizzler LOL

  2. Loving the new layout! We are trying to live the shit out of summer too. Lots of nights week nights spent going to the lake just to get some time in! It goes too fast but at least we have a nice trip to look forward to at the end of this!

  3. LOVING the new layout! Very pretty!

    I too love looking at before and after pics so I’ll be checking those out. Go b9’ers! 🙂

    And it sounds like you’re living the shit out of summer if you’re can’t waiting for the weekends! Enjoy your date night with your man.


    1. Thank you! I love the layout too, just bright and happy 😉 Before and after pics are the best, aren’t they?? I cannot wait for date night tomorrow, admittedly!

  4. love the layout! I also hate it when Eric and I go a long time without really hanging out (like when he gets home from work at 8 pm and then has to go back in the next day) but I do enjoy the me time!
    I have also been in a blog funk lately–not much motivation to write, so I just back off until I feel like writing again rather than forcing it 🙂

    1. Yes! It’s tough when you see each other just to go to bed or whatever, I mean, I am obviously glad we DO live together and see each other as much as we can, but weeks like this, where we are ships passing in the night, is tough! I know, I hate when I get into funks, same here, write when compelled 😉 bullet style like yours the other day!

  5. I haven’t seen CB all week either…he is in Arizona with his family. I can definitely relate to how it feels to miss him…though I do appreciate the me time. I hope you guys have a nice date night tomorrow.

  6. This new layout is beautiful! I really like it, it’s so you!

    I like the bullets – way to just blog out whatever’s on your mind! It’s really works!

  7. I saw some of your twitter fight tweets as it was happening and you two put a big smile on my face. I was having a bad day so you snapped me out of it too! Yes, living the shit out of summer is on my agenda too. But I need to figure out how to do that while still getting a decent amount of sleep 🙂

    PS I love your bullets

    1. Aw! I am so glad we helped pull ya out of your funk too. We were cracking up. Maybe we’ll make it a regular occurrence;-) Yes, you need sleep! weekly chase style 😉

  8. Can’t wit for you to meet B. Feb seems so far away but I m so excited. I should be in running shape by then so bring your sneaks!

    1. I cannot wait either, friend!! AND to run in warm weather in February will be glorious 😉 as will drinking wine with you and watching the bromance take effect 😉 XOXO
