Seriously, you are all too nice to me. It’s kind of surreal to read all your wonderful comments and I cannot believe you guys have moved my video to the number one spot of Food Network Star Entries!
No news yet and I’m trying not to think about it. For starters, I’m nervous. I mean, me? a reality girl? Noooo That’s just weird! Second, I really don’t have the cooking chops, I have a lot to learn and (if, HUGE IF, I got on) I’d probably get demolished on the cooking side of the competition.
Anyway *trying not to think about it* *trying not to think about it* back to this "spoil" thing. I’ve had a rough couple of days. The husband and I had a little tiff, the toddler has been getting on my last nerve and some people are really pissing me off!
Excuse the frankness but boy oh boy! I really do my best to do, well… my best, in everything I do. But lately I’ve been getting so much darn resistance. Know what I mean? Like getting snippy emails when I’m trying to be honest, or going out of my way to do something nice for someone and having it blow up in my face. It really makes me want to crawl into a little hole and just stop trying.
But then I read your comments, I realize I made a difference in someone life and it makes me smile! I think this is why I’m so drawn to the blogging. I love sharing my ideas, I love connecting and I LOVE inspiring and helping people reach goals. I never really looked at it as a passion but it really is. And the great thing is here I can share, connect and help people who want to do the same. If they do want to they don’t have read. It’s really like a perfect utopia, isn’t it?
Am I making any sense? I think I may have officially gone into babble mode.
Anyway, to help shut the door on my slump, I’m going to focus on the positives (besides how cool you all are) as I found THAT is the best way to deal. So today’s positives…
- I had the BEST workout this morning. I totally splurged and hired a personal trainer at the gym. Not because I have to but because I want to. Here’s what happened…. I recently left the Y and signed up at Bally’s for a few reasons but mostly due to location. With the new membership came a free personal trainer session. Well, I totally took advantage and fell in love. Not with the guy (although he’s really nice) but with the workout. Dude, he kicked my butt! and I love having someone there to spot me, set a routine, assess my goals, and do all the things that a trainer does! We are going to meet ones a week and he’s helping with a plan for the marathon. Plus I want to work on getting some muscle tone. I can totally see muscles in my arms and back and I’m liking it! LOL I updated my workout page with a loose shedule of my training schedule (holy crap I have a training schedule!)
- I ate really good today (except I’m munching a bit too much on some pretzels right now). Not because I stayed in my points but because I made everything homemade and that felt really good. We’ve been eating out a lot and I’m trying to get us back into the habit of looking in the fridge first. So today I made the husband and I some cheese steaks out of leftovers. SO YUMMY! and I made an awesome dinner (although the husband didn’t fall for the bulgur trick. LOL I tried to make bulgur instead of rice and he tried it but he wasn’t the biggest fan)
- The husband and I totally had a great talk and worked out the problems we had this weekend. That always relieves some stress and makes me feel TONS better. I just feel off and we are off. I’m sure you know what I mean.
- The toddler, albeit miserable lately (last two dinners he’s be sent to timeout) I (and the husband) have NOT given in. So I’m hoping this too shall pass. We’ll see.
I have so many other things to do and tell ya about but I’m SO tired. Just to keep myself honest and the ideas fresh…. book review, coupon giveaway, VitaTop giveaway, Chicago announcement, and T-Shirts. Yikes! I have a busy week ahead!
Here’s the menu…
