Trusting Your GPS

I had to be in Buckhead yesterday at a web studio to help one of our VPs with a live webcast. I’ve done this before…at this same place. I’ve been there like six times. Well, yesterday I got lost. I know – how do you go somewhere six times and get lost on the SEVENTH time? Well, that would be because I’m a logistical ra-tard. Compound THIS with the fact that I am ALWAYS late…not a good thing.

But yesterday was a little different, I left my house SO early it was nuts. I was actually brought a book with me because I thought I’d be sitting in the parking lot for a while. God, that sounds dumb now that I type it…but it does highlight the fact that I am always late because I hate waiting. I don’t mind that you have to wait though.

Anyway, back to the story, I grab my GPS out of the glovebox, just to be safe because I’m all over it today!, and look at my recent addresses. I see Maple Street and that sounds about right so I click that…I should be there in 10 minutes tops. As my GPS starts to scream that is it ‘CALCULATING ROUTE’…’CALCULATING ROUTE’…I see that my trip time is like 45 minutes. WTF? But what do I do? I follow it. I follow it all the way to Hapeville.

Oh, what’s that? You want a visual of how moronic I am? By all means…please direct your attention to below.

Pink dot – starting point. Orange dot – destination. Blue dot – embarrassing.

You want to know the worst part? I was all the way in Hapeville before I stopped and thought to myself ‘Where am I? I don’t even see the city. I wonder if that was the wrong address in the GPS.’

Bottom line, it took me OVER AN HOUR to go 15 minutes. So I think it would be safe to say that I trust my GPS…like completely trust it with my life…my career…my dignity. I might even let it babysit my first born.

The Most Important Thing I Have to Say

Is that I have 1.5 days to accomplish my March goals. What's outstanding?
  1. Write and mail all wedding thank you notes
  2. Print 6 of our favorite wedding photos
  3. Buy/make curtains for dining/living room
  4. Read two books
Yeeahhhh...I can totally knock that out by tomorrow.

**Please consider this my goal update for March and my goal setting post for April. If I don't knock this out in April, I'm never sharing my goals again. Ever.

No. I Don't Like It.

I don't like salmon. I have officially, scientifically, without a doubt determined that.

I love the way it looks...I mean, come on, that looks delicious!
But the second it hits my lips, immediate gag reflexes kick in. Overdramatic grabbing my neck gag reflexes. Thinking about it 20 minutes later - still gagging. Thinking about the slimy, gross skin that used to be on it...what if I ate some skin? OMG - OMG - OMG. Gag me with a spoon.

This is totally random, I know, but I haven't uploaded my pics from the shower and I'm just too lazy to do it right now.

I’m Dieting

I typically do not weigh myself…I only judge myself by the way my clothes fit. And, with my bubbling personality, people don’t really pay attention to my weight…they are too busy laughing at my jokes. Right, Shane? Kidding.

Anyway, I have vowed to always try to be a size 6 - although there may be times where they are falling off of me (this would probably happen 2 times in my entire life…max) or I may be busting out of them…regardless, they are a size 6.

Well, over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that my pants were a little tighter and I was just feeling very non-confident with the way I looked. So, on Monday, I got in gear and started a diet. Not a fad diet or anything where I starve myself (although the first few days were rough as my body was REALLY concerned as to why I wasn’t consuming 2,500 calories) but it is straight up chicken, fish, turkey, veggies, egg whites, brown rice, lettuce and water. Every Saturday is a cheat day – and THAT is when I go back to consuming 2,500 calories…and it is glorious.

Today is the fourth day and I have lost 5 pounds. It may be water weight, although I swear my ass is smaller, but I’ll take it! I’d also like to comment that it is somewhat nice to know, for real, what it feels like to be hungry. As mentioned, I typically eat for sport, so it’s nice to get back to eating for survival.

My goal? 15 pounds (10 more to go). Wish me luck!

February Goals - How Did We Do?

How did we do on the February goals? Not bad but not 100%...

  • Complete and submit income taxes - DONE!
  • Write and mail all wedding thank you notes - Um, not at all...didn't even crack them open...I'm horrible.
  • Select and print 6 of our favorite wedding pictures - Well, I selected them but never printed them...I'll print in March.
  • Work out at least 4 days each week - DONE! I can't believe it but I actually accomplished this during weeks 2, 3 and 4 of February!
  • Read two books - Nope. I'm still reading my book club book and haven't even started 'Still Missing.'
So, looking ahead to March - here is what we're shooting for:

  • Write and mail all wedding thank you notes
  • Print 6 of our favorite wedding photos
  • Buy/make curtains for dining/living room
  • Work out at least 4 days each week
  • Read two books
  • Help throw a fun and successful wedding shower for our friends, Mike and Mandy - Stay tuned for photos of this event next week!

Here's to a successful and productive March!
