JeRk FaCe

Ugh....yesterday kicked my tail. It was not one of those happy, smiling, I love my kids kinda day. The Dudes were screaming every .05 seconds and were total jerk face's. I may have said a few other choice words yesterday as well :/  I was about to lose my mind. We tried to meet Mr. Mayer for lunch. Unfortunately we turned into "those" people and had to make a hasty exit before the Dudes head started spinning and vomit spewing forth. It was not pretty. I'm pretty sure I heard applause when we were leaving. Ugh....this parenting thing is not for the weak. And, it is not all sunshine and roses like the Internet would leave one to believe....because they can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true....hahahaha...love that commercial. Whoops. Getting off track. 
So....this past weekend I had a girls weekend with my friend DJ. We went to see P!nk in concert in Dallas. I love P!nk. And....BEST CONCERT EVER. We had a fantastic time. A couple of other friends were there that we met up with and had dinner and later a limo ride (my very first!) and after concert drinks....and dancing. Oh the dancing. I won't lie. There were a lot of drinks. The next morning was rough. I didn't feel like a human until around noon-ish. DJ took me to Ikea. I had never been before. How on earth had I missed that place my whole life?! It was a AH-MAZ-ING!!! I can't wait to go back. After Ikea we shopped around the rest of the day. The next day was more shopping and a return to Oklahoma and reality. It was so great to get away for a few days. I missed the family, but gosh a break was super nice.

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…
