The McCurdy Effect

We have some friends. They are the friends that we've had forever and more family than friend. The McCurdy's. Mr. Mayer and McCurdy grew up together. I met Kristen and it was instant friendship. We had kids within 3 months of each other and they adore each other. The drawback? They live 2 hours away from us and we don't get to see them real often.
Now that I laid the background I'll get to the point. Mr. Mayer is a little neurotic. Well, I am too, but this is about him, not me. He doesn't like messes (bad since we have a zoo at our house) and he thinks there is a place for everything. This is where brushing teeth comes into the picture. McCurdy (all of them) walk around while they brush their teeth. This drives Mr. Mayer CrAzY. So much so that I think McCurdy makes a point to do it when he is around Mr. Mayer just to needle him. Recently Diva has started walking around while brushing her teeth. Mr. Mayer is about to lose it. Yesterday she was standing in the living room watching TV while she did it. That's her normal spot. Tonight she wandered around the bathroom and climbed up on the vanity and crouched over the sink.
Does anyone elses kid do this? She cannot be still while she brushes her teeth. I enjoy watching Mr. Mayer squirm. I figure as long as she's getting the job done it doesn't matter where she brushes as long as she spits in the sink. Mr. Mayer swears she's a McCurdy. She's not. Promise.

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

That's Gonna Hurt

HEY Y'ALL!!!! It's me again!! hahahahaha....life has a way of zipping by, doesn't it? Life has been going by at warp speed around here. I'm still working. I only regret it twice a week :( I would by lying if I said I didn't miss being at home. I miss the day to day stuff, and I hate paying a babysitter. It breaks my heart when one of the kids tell me they miss me, or they wish I didn't work. However, the extra income is nice. Seeing Mr. Mayer not as stressed about finances is nice, and I feel like I am contributing.
My main reason for getting a job remains. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Considering my genetic makeup if that's all that I have, I'm okay with it. I was medicated for a long time. I stopped taking my medications two years ago and have been able to keep a handle on myself for a long time. However, I had a bad month in December. Besides the normal Christmas stress, my wheels were stolen, which added another…

Let Me Catch My Breathe....

Hey! Hey! Hey! My fitness tour is still going strong :) I am pretty confident I will be able to at least make it to vacation time doing free, or discounted classes around town. Then I can make my final decision on what I want to stick with. The last two weeks have taught me that my fitness level has gone way down....I am not as strong as I thought I was. Maybe gone down isn't the right word. Maybe, more like, I'm nuts and had a skewed perception of my fitness level....maybe I was never as fit as I thought I was??? All these classes are giving me a dose of reality.
This week I started off strong with CycleBar. Now. I LOVE spin classes. My friend, Jeff, started teaching spin a million years ago, and I took my first spin class with him in 2011. He has always been my favorite instructor and I compare every other class to him. Every one. So, on a scale of 1-Jeff how did I like Cycle Bar...I'll admit, it was at an 8 or 9. Maybe if the instructor and I were friends outside of cla…
