Currently - March Edition

Listening...Luke Bryan's new Spring Break cd, makes me so pumped for the lake this summer! And I am obsessed with Lady A's new Downtown song. Still on my country kick apparently.

Eating... healthy this week, no cheating, even if it kills me. I need to see some results with weight loss! Why is it that it's sooooo easy to pack on the pounds but hard as hell to work them back off? Healthy Choice Frozen Greek Yogurt in Vanilla Bean is definitely one of my fav snacks - only 100 cals and tastes like ice cream!
One of my favs...especially since I struggle with mindless "binge" eating
Drinking... I am diet mountain dew fiend! I know I should go easy on the aspartame, but damn that stuff is delicious! Also, definitely making an effort to drink less alcohol these days for the sole purpose of not drinking my calories.

Wearing.... bright pink polish on my nails & toes - getting ready for spring!

Feeling...sore, but in a good way. Satisfied that I pushed myself to get out of my warm bed and to the gym this morning. Fulfilled & Thankful! Looking forward to my dinner & movie date tomorrow night with my work girls and happy hour Thursday night with old friends!

Weather...54 and cloudy today, but supposed to be sunny and warm again by the weekend. And speaking of warmer weather this girl needs a tan...BAD!

Wanting...to find a money tree. Anybody know where I can find one? To find out what happens in Beautiful Redemption (Book 4 of the Beautiful Creatures series)! I finished reading Beautiful Chaos last night and holy cliffhanger, I am dying to see what happens, even though I don't think it will be the obvious answer. 

Thinking...about relationships in my life and how I can be a better sister/daughter/friend (deep, I know haha)

Enjoying...my social media fixes, my current surge of willpower, my Polar HRM, unlimited text messages, my blog friends and all the love and support you guys offer me

Young and Fabulous said...

I don't know how you work out this early, but please feel free to share some o that motivation! And good job on the eating healthy!

Amanda aka Manda said...

I'm definitely on a country kick too, but at work I'm totally rocking out to Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley. It's somewhat hilarious to have my boss here me singing about drinking on the job. I need to buy some of that greek frozen yogurt. Sounds delicious. I made gluten free brownies on Sunday but left most of them with my parents so I wouldn't be so tempted. I'm definitely a diet dew addicted, too! I'm sore in a good way too! Yay us for kicking this challenge's booty!

Alexa said...

That "waste basket" inspiration picture is amazing!! Absolutely love it. And also love TN lakes and wish there was one in my future. I'm serious about that "Nikki coming to Charlotte and kidnapping Alexa and holding her hostage in Rocky Top forever" thing! :)

Taylor @ Pink Heels Pink Truck said...

If you find that money tree...please let me know. I'm tire of being on the road. ;) xo

Laurie Tester said...

I'd like a seed from that money tree when you find it! I also have to try that Greek Frozen Yogurt. I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible.
Happy Tuesday,

Girl - way to go on the early morning gym. I love that!
Also - where can I get that money tree too? ;)

I had a moment of weakness yesterday. I was heating up my son's cookie and I tasted it to make sure it was good and warm and ate the whole thing. Had to get him a new one. Ugh.

Loving that song!! I may have a lil country in me yet! I have crazy spring fever lately- all this rain we're getting is seriously depressing!

Whitney Leigh said...

We're hitting mid 60's tomorrow!
and it's making working out so much easier! I like being out in the sunshine!
when it's all cold I just want to bury myself under blankets and eat eat eat. haha
I'm currently rocking black nail polish, but that needs to change. haha

Rachel said...

I wish I had the inspiration you do to get out of bed and work out! Impressive!
It's a daily struggle for me to not eat junk. Like, there are M&M cookies sitting right next to me right now... must... not... eat...
;)

I have been dying to read those books! I need to get to Barnes and Noble, stat! And as far as weather goes, I'm in love with Knoxville in the spring! Its about to get so pretty up there and I will be jealous!

Ashley Barnhill said...

Wait a minute... there is frozen greek yogurt in VANILLA BEAN?! That's my favorite ice cream flavor! Already added it to my grocery list for this weekend!

CALLIE said...

I am with Ashley above... Vanilla Bean greek yogurt... NEED ASAP!

Girl, you are doing amazing things for yourself. So proud of you :)(Now if you could just send some of your morning workout magic on over to me, that would be just fabulous!)

MommyMandy Musings said...

Good for you on all the workouts! I'm haven't worked out in weeks! Can't wait to get back to it...you get it girl!

Lins - Domesticated Working Woman said...

Get it girl. I've been binge eating, too. My problem is that I eat so dang early for lunch so I'm starving before my hubby gets home for dinner. Last night I started getting really down on myself about my body and realized it was just the devil's way of trying to get me off track.

Holly said...

I'm on a country kick right now too!! I love the new song from Tim McGraw with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, The Highway Don't Care - look it up!

Jordan said...

Holy healthy food, I am having a hard time this week! Yesterday they had Chick Fil A breakfast, today it was Cracker Barrel, and they just had pizza delivered for lunch. I'm just like "oh hey, don't mind me with this delicious chicken caesar salad... with the dressing on the side... enjoy your pizza. Assholes."

But then I see that picture of that girl's stomach and I'm like yep. Good choice.

Where oh where is spring? I'm so ready to bust out some summer dresses and skirts!

Stephanie said...

SUCH a good cd, I love it too. Let's go find that money tree, shall we?

lori said...

if you find that money tree, make sure you share the wealth ;)

Fran @ Sassy Southern Bride said...

Why is it that it's sooooo easy to pack on the pounds but hard as hell to work them back off? <--If you find out, let me know!! lol. I am reading the first Beautiful Creatures book now. I can't wait to get to the other books!

Hallie @ Life:Oceanside said...

I need to be strong and not cheat but it's soooo hard, I just picture myself being too fat for my wedding dress.


I need to follow your lead and paint my fingers and toes pretty colors! cannot believe it's already spring time!

Sarah @ It's a Vol said...

Get it girl!!! I really need a tan too -- but I try to avoid tanning beds at my old age! :) Looking forward to Summer on the lake too -- and especially to those one or two weekends hubby and I go all by ourselves and leave the toddler behind! bad mom? Maybe, but it's the truth!

Jess said...

I`m so addicted to diet drinks, too! And I too am really, really hoping that we will see some sun this weekend!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I'm trying to be healthy as well. I'm starting with eating healthy and then adding in exercise. But why is it that I can't find anything that tastes as good as PIZZA!?

Mrs. Beer said...

GOOD LORD I am having a hard time eating clean lately! Usually I'm the "how does she do it" girl, now I'm the "sleeve of ritz crackers in five minutes" girl. Gahhh... good going!

Haha I was just talking to Will about how funny "diet" sodas are. However, I am going to need to try the Healthy Choice Frozen Yogurt. That sounds yum!
