I love working out now. My normal Saturday before consisted of sleeping and laying about the house watching TV all day. I worked out this morning though and I feel fabulous! All the stuff they say about more energy, sleeping better and feeling better over all is true. I thought that working out would make it the opposite but nope, it's true! I did 30mins on the treadmill, 1500 meters on the row machine, 50 squat lifts with a 20lb barbell and 50 crunches. The last things were from my trainer. He likes to kick my behind quite a bit.
The cupcakes I made for the candle party today were great, Everyone loved them. I had part of one when they came out of the oven last night just to make sure they were cooked right. A hazelnut coffee cake with nutella for frosting. yummy!
We went and saw The Eagle with Channing Tatum. It was better then I thought it would be. I snuck in a turkey wrap to eat. I didn't have dinner since I was at the candle party so long today. I only had a bit because the wrapping was so loud in the theater that I just stop trying to eat it. More for later though :)
Last thought for the day...I love my husband. He is such a great man. He has been really helping me out with my workouts and being really supportive lately. Maybe I am just in a better mood from working out but life is really good right now in the Fat Wife household.
Hope you all have a great Sunday.

I used to be a heavy sleeper but going through boot camp trashed that idea. I hate being a light sleeper it sucks!
2. If you were made into a professor for a day, what topic would you lecture on?
I'm not sure. I think I would focus somewhere in the military realm and help out all the new military wives. Teach them how to act as a wife and just the basics in making your way around base and the terminology. Just because it is such a different life.
3. What’s a skill you’ve always wanted that you don’t currently have?
I wish I could run forever! I wish I could be a in a marathon and win. I could probably some day get to the point to maybe do one but winning is a different story.
4. Have you ever been in a real cat fight?
Once in high school. A chick insulted my family and I was in a bad mood so I slammed her head into the window on the school bus. Never got in trouble for it. I don't know if you consider that a cat fight or not though.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.
In blog land everyone seems to be getting back on track with diet and excersize and shedding the weight. BOOBs is a huge topic still and people are starting to find room mates for the event. So looking forward to it!
In real life things are busy with work, working out and getting ready for classes to start next month. I have the candle party this weekend and a trainers appt. Hubby is doing great too he lost 2lbs this week! So excited for him! He is also starting his first semester at the same college I will be attending. Lots of stuff going on.
That's all for now my wonderful followers! I hope you all have a great weekend! I will hopefully be on tomorrow if I get a chance. Between the trainer at 1200 and a candle party at 1. I will do my best.

This morning I get up and I am super sore from my workout yesterday of stair stepper and circuit training. I'm sure I looked like a little old lady trying to hobble to the bathroom. So not in a bad mood, just tired and normal morning bitchiness.
But really, in the freaking sink!?!
I don't get up in a decent amount of time that if something goes different I wont be late for work. I am a horrible morning person. So I ran down stairs forgetting my socks and had to go back upstairs. Let the dog out, forgot the dog outside until I noticed he wasn't trying to trip me on the way out the door. Then I forgot my gym bag. At least I remembered my food for the day.
Then on the way to work I got cut off twice in less then 5 minutes of driving! Once I get to work I get the spot I am trying to park in stolen by one of the cars who cut me off on the way to work!! At this point I am ready to just throw in the towel and say screw this I'm not working today. Of course I just walk into work anyway. At 0615 I get into work and there are already 3 people waiting to get seen by our Doc and we have a full schedule. Just what I need to make my day. I am still feeling the effects from our families dog having to be put down yesterday too.
This day so far has not been very nice to me. I know its not a horrible day in the scheme of things, but I wish it would be better.
I am going running again tonight and am looking so forward to that. It is truly the one time of the day when I can just focus on me and making myself better. Just me and my sneakers. I guess the hubby will be there too.
I hope you all are having a better day then me today.
*Big hugs and lots of love*
For all of you who are going to the BOOBs event I am thinking about making glass tile necklaces with the logo in them to sell as a neat way to raise money to go. If any of you would be interested in the idea let me know. here is the idea of what they would be, just picture the BOOBs logo. Pass this on so I can get a good amount of input. Thanks :)

1. What day of the week do you love and what day of the week do you hate? I love Friday nights. We always do something on Friday nights and it makes the weekend feel longer I hate Wednesdays because the work seems to go downhill from there.
2. What is your middle name and is there a meaning behind it? My middle name is Nicole. My dad's side of the family your middle name is either Nicole or Nicholas. :)
3. Do you have any tattoos? How many? If you don’t have one – what would you get if you did have one? I have 3 tattoo. One on my wrist that is from an artist i love. I have one on my left boob over my heart area of my religious emblem and one on my back with tribal and a fairy and a frog for a friend that passed away a couple of years ago.
4. On that same theme of dirty little secrets…how many piercings do you have? Any you wish you had? I have 3 wholes in each ear and a tongue ring. I had at one point an eyebrow ring and my ta tas done but they are both out now :) Much to the relief of my hubby.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your life in blog land and in real life.
blog land is crazy with excitement for the upcoming BOOBS trip this year. Also I have a few new followers that I want to welcome. I am so happy that I have the chance to share my story with you and I hope that I help you as much as my elder bandsters have helped me!
In real life things are going great! My workouts are kicking my ass! I love my new trainer. Work is well work, not much to say there. Also The hubs and I are doing amazingly! I am taking him to a surprise tomorrow. I will tell you how it goes after because I don't know if he read this or not :)
Have a great weekend all!!!

I hope this video works. This is what we are hearing and seeing outside our house. It's just crazy. I am so thankful that we still have power with the wind gust being upwards around 50mph
Here are some pictures: these picture are behind our house. you can barely seen our backyard neighbors. there are rows of houses beyond them but you cant tell.
This picture is out our front door, the hubs had shoveled this about an hour before the picture was taken.
