Cold

Today was cold. 

My car wouldn’t start cold. 

So some advice:

Make sure your plugin actually works and isn’t glitchy.
Have an awesome friend who will pick you up and drive all over town for you looking for a battery charger.
Have an AMA membership. 
Like to drive to warm your vehicle.
Pray for warmer weather.

Good luck and stay warm.

Is Big Brother watching?

Ok, so super random post, but I've got semi blogger's block so here goes..

I swear in the last two days I've had instances where things have semi creeped me out. 

Yesterday at lunch a coworker was talking about silicon cleaner things at the table and then I went upstairs and was scrolling through Instagram like an hour later and an ad I'd never seen before is in my feed.

And what's it for??

SILICON CLEANER THINGS!!

It freaked me out so I showed another coworker who was there too!!

And tonight!

So I went 'home' last week and found a cassette tape of Big Shiney Tunes 7 and rekindled my love of 'LoverCall' on there. 

Now I'm out tonight at my local Boston Pizza and what song do I hear playing on the speakers??

LOVERCALL!!

Totally tripped me out and I couldn't believe it at first!

Anywho...like I said...slow blog day lol

Has anything like this ever happened to you??

Ponderings on a Tuesday Night

When you live alone, you tend to spend time thinking...a lot of time thinking...

I know for myself I'm a chronic overthinker...yay being a Virgo lol.

But over the last couple weeks, my overthinking has gone into overload. 

I overthink when I'm trying to sleep, I overthink when I'm driving to work, I overthink when I'm at work... and the list goes on and on. 

Why do I do it?

I wish I knew.

Probably a good 80% of the things I overthink about aren't even real...

I know that it's frustrating. 

I know it's not good for me.

I know it strains my relationships with people.

I know I'm almost crying because of the reason above. 

I just can't stop. I can't stop wondering if someone is mad at me because they didn't smile at me. I can't stop wondering if my relationship is going to end like my last one. I can't stop wondering if I'm good enough.

I think that's the major source of this overthinking. 

This constant state of not being good enough even though everything around me is telling me that I am. 

I have to start believing that I'm good enough and that I deserve all the greatness that's in my life. 

I have to believe it for myself. I can't just believe it because my friends or family tell me it's true, but I have to start believe it for me. 

I just have to start...

MMMMonday - January 8

So there are times when I make something super yummy for supper and I feel like I should share it with others. 

As you read in a previous blog post, I have a goal to decrease my weight. That means that I need to find healthier alternatives to my favs. 

Now I was kind of craving tacos...because...tacos? But I didn't want to fill up on fried tortillas. 

As I was scanning Pinterest this recipe caught my eye:


and I decided that I'd try them myself!!

Here are what mine look like:

Close right? ;)

Anywho, the recipe is in the link below the original photo...

YOU SHOULD TRY THESE!!

Back To It

I go back to work tomorrow. 

After being off for 18 days, that's kind of daunting. 

I'm super excited for routine, seeing how much my littles have grown and seeing my coworkers but it's still daunting. 

It's a bit tricky to transition back to work after being off for almost three weeks. 

I want to do the best I can for the littles and I want them to come back and get into the flow as soon as we can. 

As today was my last day off I decided to treat myself to some of my faves:

Starbuck's Caramel Brule Latte 
Visits with a great friend
The song 'LoverCall' by Danko Jones
Justin Timberlake's new single Filthy
Cactus Cut Potatoes from Boston Pizza
and over 100 episodes of Simpsons on my PVR. 

I feel refreshed and super stoked to go back to work. 

Now we'll see how long that lasts... ;)

Goals

Well it's officially been about 6 days of the New Year so I figured it's time to start focusing on my goals for the year. 

Also, I go back to work on Monday which means routine where I can implement these goals. 

Goal 1: Clean up!

I want to declutter my home. I want to have a place for something or that something doesn't have a place with me. I want to display my things or make them useful or else why do I have them? I kinda started this the other day when I was cleaning out my car for people to ride in the back...I know..it's bad. It felt good though! To save something or chuck it was relieving. I want more of that feeling!!

Goal 2: Get Back to Me!

Last year around this time I hit a low in my weight that made me super stoked and proud of myself. Then I proceeded to gain it all back over the year. This year I want to get back to that weight and even lower! I want my health to be the best it can and for doctors to stop blaming all of my issues on my weight! I want to be the best me I can especially since I'm turning the big 3-0 in less than 8 months!?!

That's it! 

That's all!

Now I know I 'only' have two goals but that's all I want for right now. I want achievable things that help me along with my life. Other goals will come and I will talk about them in future posts, but today, this is what I want to focus on.

What are your goals?

-M.
