bike rides!

SO I've adopted bike rides over yoga this week. Tuesday and today I've ridden my good ole bike on the bike and hike trail and goodness me my rear is sore. Otherwise, just work work work and boy howdy am I ready to be done with it and back at school.

3 weeks of work left and also tomorrow. WILL I SURVIVE TO SHOW OFF MY WATCH TAN LINES?

Only time will tell, my friends.

Srsly, one of these days, probably a weekend day, I will get pictures up of my sweet bracelets.

super hero week guys!

So it's SUPER HERO WEEK at work this week and boy howdy I'm going to make it as entertaining as possible. Can you say CRAFTS EVERY DAY or at least for a few days, I'm hoping, because they are great for  entertaining children. It's not like games where the lazy kids are like "I DON'T WANNA PLAY" and sit down and cry. Every kid will color. Especially if they are coloring on their BRAND NEW SUPER HERO CAPE whatupwhatup!

I stopped blogging because I kept forgetting about it, if we're bein' real, blog. (Sorry.) I kept to yoga everyday but Friday I stopped because I worked late doing a rock climbing class. Just as I suspected, this also led to me not doing yoga Saturday or Sunday or today because once I start with the excuses to myself I keep it going. But tomorrow I'll start doing it again. I'm thinking of going every other day because it is rough on my wrists. But that might just be my laziness. (Like the little girl whose tummy hurt every time we played a game. Srsly, come on, little kids, your elders are not dumb.)

Haven't made much headway in things that I should be doing like: planning out my remaining camps, thinking about / researching for I.S., or laundry, or working on the bracelet I started, or sewing, or bike riding, or yoga, or even reading books.

SO BLOG HERE IT GOES. I am going to try hard to stop being a bum. It's not like hanging out with kids and watching them while they do crafts or play games or swim is alllll that complicated. I mean, there are lots of little tiffs kids get in, and they poo in their swim trunks sometimes, but really. Not all that bad. So it is time to stop being a bum.

feelin the yoga burn

Three days into yogaeveryday and it almost didn't happen today. My excuse for not doing it was going to be a crappy one so I decided to just do it. In the end, I feel better.

Work. 8:30-3:30.
Lazy time.
Worked on my sweet bracelet. Srsly when you see pictures, blog, you'll be so impressed.
Yoga time.
Sit-ups. One hundred of them. Easier today. Ish.
Research of kids' crafts time. Which is kind of fun. Kids get to do so many cool things.

Now bedtime.

oops, blog!

Just when I thought I was going to pay attention to you, blog, I forgot about you. Sorry about that.


  • SCOOTER MANIA 8:30-3:30
  • Relaxin.
  • Yoga time!
  • Sit ups. Still bad at them. But sitting up is better than just sitting, right?
  • Bracelet weaving with a PATTERN woah buddy. Which is what I got distracted with so I haven't blogged.
Sleep time now to prepare for scooter time in the A.M.

sorry, blog

Blog, it has been almost a month since I have posted. I have no good excuse for that, but let me try to explain.

First week of work I did before care as well as camp hours. So that had me up at 6:30 and working until 3:30 and then I was spent after that and accomplished absolutely nothing in the afternoons that week, aside from watching a hell of a lot of television on my computer.

Then over the weekend I got nothing done because I was sleeping.

Second week I didn't have to get up until 7:30 but I worked until 6:00. So again, I got nothing done due to exhaustion. And over that weekend I went to New York for cousin's graduation party, so, no sleep. Or accomplishments.

Third week I got up at 7:30 and worked until 3:30 and had no excuse for getting nothing done except that I wanted to finish watching all the seasons of Lost. Which I did. Then on Friday I got a car! Then over the weekend I went to New York again for Fourth of July celebrations and family time. And got no sleep. Again. But I did learn to weave beads into bracelets!

So this past week I've been exhausted from getting no sleep for two weeks and weekends and therefore still got nothing done, despite 7:30 to 3:30 schedule again.

HOWEVER this weekend I've decided it's time for a change. I've gotten in a couple of workouts over the past four weeks, but not enough. I got my sleep in this weekend as well as the following:


  • WORK OUT CITY. Kind of. Cardio and swimming. I saw four campers at the pool. Talk about making relaxing not nearly as relaxing.
  • SOCIALIZING which I haven't done in a while. Went out with a couple of lovely ladies for dinner and drinks and complaining about children. What could be better?
Then I slept 11 hours and then...

  • Phone calls to parents of my campers next week to tell them what their kids need to bring / where we meet / etc.
  • Folded laundry that I did last week. Oops on the delayed folding. (Watched some really good TED Talks while I folded. Highly recommend them. Seriously watch them both right now.)
  • Finished the two bracelets I made over the week/weekend with button closures. This took way longer than I expected.
  • YOGAMAZING weight loss flow. Maybe if I do it everyday I will lose weight? It's about 25 minutes and makes me fall over and sweat a lot. That's good, right? 
  • 100 sit-ups. Jesus. I forgot what feeling my abs was like. Back in the gymnastics days that was super easy. I have become a fatty.
  • Attempted YOGA FOR THE BUTT AND THIGHS except that it was after I ate dinner and that is always a bad idea when you are doing downward dog. So I abandoned that about ten minutes in.
  • Pending: finishing room cleaning. The laundry was the biggest part but I have some desk/dresser surfaces to clear, also.
While I was in the resting pose after my first session of yoga today, I decided that I think I want to do yoga everyday / make a schedule for myself to follow as far as being off of my butt goes. I'm super intimidated by weight machines at the fitness center so I'm kinda leaning toward yoga instead because I feel the sore more after that, anyway. And I don't have to feel self-conscious because I can do it at home. SO cardio and swimming and yoga in some sort of schedule where everyday I do something to not be a fatty.

Also, attempting to eat better. On that topic, I've not been eating meat for a while. For about a month actually I think? Still gotta back off on fats and sugars etc., though.

HERE'S TO BEING PRODUCTIVE AND HEALTHY. And blogging more, hopefully, too. Tomorrow, perhaps, pictures of car and bracelets.
