Be Happy...and Thank You

This is a thank you to the Indie Book community, the Fitness community, Burlesque community, Roller Derby community! smile emoticon

 I encourage you to sit back and think about your life. I must admit, I have an incredible life. I choose to, in that I make the decisions to jump and try things, even if they are scary, even if I am horrible at them, even if they are not the norm and others think that I am completely nuts. Who cares? 

At times, I get poopy. We all do. That's a.o.k.
Believe it or not, I try not to get mired down in it when it happens.
Then, I saw these two pictures this morning.
Both made me do a little introspection.
That's when I thought about all of the wonderful things that have happened in my life because I allowed them to, or I allowed myself to take chances.
I want to live loudly.
I want to look back with fabulous memories and no 'what if's.'
I think that I have a good beginning to that.
I know that I am going to have some amazing tales to share. Heck, I do now. Take the plunge people. Be happy. Make things great.

Oh my.
I don't know why I cannot do this on my own, in the correct way.
Having a coach...for me it the way to go.
I need someone riding my butt.
I need someone keeping me accountable.

So, here I am.
Thinking, should I just suck it up and pay someone to whip me into gear.
ORRR maybe...
should I do it here?
Should I put it all out there again?
Should I hold myself accountable to all of you?

Maybe I rationale that because none of you comment, lol, and I know it would be easier to say,
give excuses...
I don't know.
All I know is that I have my birth-aversary coming up and
I am not proud of how it compares to last year.
I do not deny my vanity.
I do not deny that I have not followed protocol as I usually do.

So, I leave you with funny, because....
that's what I do.

When things are always going wrong...

Jelly Beans...

You have have a couple of weeks where everything goes wrong?
Too many things break?
Just when you think you're luck is about to turn back around, nope, sucker!

Yep. That's been lately.
The funny thing is that I cannot even really get upset at it all.
I think that I've reached delirium or something because the other day I when I walked outside and had  a tire flat as a pancake and another almost there, I just began to laugh.

Now, I'm not saying that I never get upset, mad, angry, or any of the array of feelings.
I'm just saying that lately, I can't even get overly worked up about it.
If I do, fifteen minutes later it's done.

So what does this have to do with jelly beans?
I have no clue except they make me happy, and this year, I have not bought any yet.
Today, I think I must remedy that.

Too, the next book has jelly beans as a main focus... in many ways.

After spending the morning with my boyfriend, Gym, I will be making the trek into the next town to go to the store and purchase my little confectionery joys.

I don't even feel guilty about it with my fitness routine because I have to travel 15 miles just to buy them... Wait, maybe I'll buy two bags...

Throwback Thursday because goff

It's always fun to find old pics.
Plus, I change ALL the time, as we know.
I get bored with myself.
So I thought it would be fun for some old pics.

And last year on my birthday...
Let's see what I'll look like this year in May

Mouth-gasm and other Fun things

I had gone back to some of my food plans and have been following them.
Believe it or not, I've been back on the wagon of being focused.

One of my meals called for 2 rice cakes any kind (I've been stuck on caramel or chocolate), 1T of all natural peanut butter and a protein shake with two scoops of protein.
To mix it up, literally, I've been mixing my protein powder with my peanut butter and a few tablespoons of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and spreading that icing concoction on my rice cakes. 
I've been using either my Dymatize Birthday Cake Protein or their Chocolate.

I am, however, growing bored of things to do with my chicken and ground turkey.
If you have some fun ideas, throw them at me.

Operation Fine Ass Booty has been coming along. 
I have been making the booty pop by just standing.
Yeah, still needs work, but I can see it, lol.
Speaking of chicken, your girl needs a tan.
I'm as white as a raw bird.

One of my all time favorite bloggers Boobs, Barbells, and Broccoli
has a great post today about Happiness.
Please go check it out.
T. always has the most inspiring and fun posts evah!
Show her some love, and try to sprinkle some happiness too.

With that, I leave you with this silly funny that I have been posting and texting away this morning.

Random Wednesday Musings

I am really glad there is not a diner nearby in my town.
I feel like sitting, eating pie and drinking coffee.

I have always enjoyed talking to older folks.
My aunt had a beauty salon in my grandmother's home.
She catered to the little old ladies who were married after WWII.
I always loved listening to their stories as they recalled their youth.
Some of those ladies were a little wicked for the day.
I loved the sparkle in their eyes when they recalled dances, dating, men.

Two weekends ago, I went to my first VFW Patriots Breakfast.
It is only held once a month, and the proceeds go to help with their charities - one being a home they have for some homeless veterans.
I believe they have five people living their at the moment.
Anyway, now, I am listening to men recall stories.
It is something that I think far too people do, listen and learn.

One man that I was speaking to, brought up his daughter and her side interest - roller derby.
When I told him that I was a recruit and then refereed for a little over a year, the fun conversation began.
Imagine that?!
We had a ball talking about the leagues here.
He was so proud of his daughter, and loved the sport.
Quirky topic to hit on, isn't it?

I think when I grow old that I am going to be one of those fixtures somewhere in town.
You'll see me every morning in the same seat.
I will people watch and try to start conversations with people.
All of the waitstaff will know my name and know exactly what I order every day.
See my family stops with me.
I am an only child.
I have no siblings.
and no kidlings.
Hopefully, someone will listen to my stories when the time comes because I plan on having fascinating ones to share.

And god help whoever finds my journals...
Maybe I'll become notorious.

And now back to pursuing my banging body.

There are so many times that I wish I could be more girly.
Those of you who have followed over the years saw when I was.
Now, I'm not saying that I need to do that everyday, but at times, I miss dressing up.
That collection of clothes is long gone.
The shoes, however, are not!
I do keep buying crazy gorgeous heels, mainly from the stripper store.
I love them.
They are pretty.
Many have not come out of the box since I've bought them.
Because I live here.
(Well this area, lol, this shot was miles down the road from the house, but you get the drift of the terrain.)
There are no sidewalks, no paved drives.
Heck, even the very few restaurant and shopping areas are dirt and gravel parking.
So, I'll settle for cute Vans, and just carry my pretty shoes whenever we head into the city.

And there's always red lips to dress up even a sweatshirt, hahaha. 
And yes, there are times I wear makeup to the gym, why?
Because I want to.

First day above 55 in ages!!
Had to go exploring the new hood.

And, yes, I do like Pink Floyd.
Nope, I don't partake of the legal recreational stuff here.
I'm a spirits girl through and through.
Favorite song... Wish You Were Here because of this:

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.

Flove that so much.
