Luckiest Girl EVER!

After reading something else on another blog tonight I am feeling like the luckiest girl! I am in the best place I have been in a VERY long time and MOST of this is contributed to my "hero". He is my love, my safety, my sounding board, my rock, my other half. I feel totally safe and secure. He keeps me grounded and in check. He balances me.  We live together and I love every day of it; I so look forward to coming home to him each day. I am so thankful our paths have crossed and I can call him MINE!

Love you babe!

Squat Circuit Challenge

Thinking of trying it! Why not right?  What I have I got to lose, other then leg jiggle of course! :)

Current Weight: 11/10/2013


Time to get back in to the habit for like the 50th time.  Whatever. At least I am back at it no matter how many times it takes.

10 Day Challenge: seven wants

Seven wants, in no particular order:

1. I want to be a healthy weight.  I've got some great curves, if I do say so myself, but being of the weight I currently am I don't see them the way I want them to be.  

2. To pay off my car and get it out of my ex-husbands name; one more tie to sever.

3. For my daughter to grow up with two parents who have a healthy, co-parenting relationship; nothing more, nothing less.

4. To get my finances in some what semblance of order. 

5. To RUN!  I miss running so badly; every time I see some lucky person running the bug bites me. I miss it so much that I am contemplating getting up crazy early a couple of mornings a week to run before work before the boyfriend leaves for work so I know my daughter is safe.

6. To follow through with things, in general. I get all these "great ideas" to do things, I get all pumped to do them, and then............. 

7. To be SUPER WOMAN!  I want to be an amazing mom, an amazing girlfriend, an amazing daughter, an amazing teacher, an amazing friend.......  That's not asking too much of myself is it?

10 Day Challenge: eight fears

I started this "challenge" back in March of 2012 and as you can see I was so studious and finished it - NOT.  I have been thinking a lot lately about many items in my life that I have started and never followed through with.  I hate thinking about these many unfinished things and feeling like I've failed and let myself down some how.  Its really a weird feeling knowing that I put so much of myself into so many other people in my life (my daughter, my friends, the children I teach, etc), yet I have not found the balance to take care of me too.  Its time that I push myself to do so and so with out any further adieu....

Eight of my fears (in no particular order):

1. Being stuck in an elevator.  Yep, each and every time I ride in an elevator I imagine being stuck in it.  I would FREAK!!! I hate tight closed in spaces and spaces where there are no windows for me to look out of; so yeah, being stuck in an elevator would be REALLY bad for me.

2. Losing the amazing relationship I am in now.  He has no idea how much of a rock he is for me.  Going through a divorce has left me quite nervous at times and I worry often that the "other shoe is going to drop" and I am going to some how self sabotage / self destruct what I now have.

3. Losing the love of my daughter. Being a parent is no easy task, but being a single parent is even more challenging then I ever expected.

4.   Issues with my own health; if something serious were to happen to me heath wise I'd miss out so much on my beautiful daughter and all the future holds for her.

5. Not having enough money.  Lets face it - I became a preschool teacher because I am going to make millions of dollars said NO preschool teacher EVER!

6. Losing my parents; I am an only child with a very small family.  There are not many of us around still.  What will I do when they are gone?

7. Being over weight the rest of my life and becoming like my aunt.

8. Losing one of my preschoolers some how; we are vigilant like hawks in caring for our preschoolers, but I am still paranoid that one of these days one of them will slip away.

  Anyone out there in the abyss?  No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.... just LOTS of changes in my world in the past year and I've lost my want to blog.  Life is AMAZING and I couldn't be happier!  I have found my very own HERO and we spend every moment together we can with my awesome daughter so the blog-sphere has fallen off my radar.  I know, shame on me, but I am hoping to get back soon.  See ya on the flip side soon!!! Mwahhhh!!!!
