Life list. Bucket list. The BIG to-do list.
As I was walking from class to the gym this afternoon, I passed a poster on the quarter mile with the following:
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” -Robert Byrne
What a nice pick-me up. A little bit of inspiration for a tired Tuesday afternoon was just what I needed. It got me thinking about all the things I want to do in life. Silly, insignificant things, but also the really big, momentous stuff - the points in time that define your life.
I’m sure you’ve seen the bucket lists people create on Pinterest and tumblr, and I thought it would be nice to have an ongoing list of my own.
The following are just a few things I am determined to complete before I die:

What’s on your list?

As I’ve mentioned (a few times), I am doing the BodyRock.tv 30 day challenge. I’m a little behind the main group – just starting in on week 3. But I gotta tell ya – I’m lovin’ it! (bah-dah-ba-ba-bah)
This morning we repeated the fit test (50 seconds on, 10 seconds rest) we completed on day 1, and in most areas I am getting stronger! Woopwoop!
And then 2 weeks later:
Not bad for 2 weeks strength gains.
I’m pretty pleased. I think I could probably push myself to go a little faster on the squat jumps, burpees, & push-ups. Something to focus on. Plus, I know that the loss of single sit-up is not a huge deal, but when I started this challenge I was doing pilates daily. Perhaps that’s something I need to add back in every once in a while.
I also really need to start incorporating more cardio into my life once again – not that BodyRock doesn’t get my heart rate going – I am just craving that peaceful mental space that only a long run provides.
Time to get ready for class. We got dumped on last night, so I am sure my ride to school is going to be a beast.
I’ll leave you with a little Monday Motivation.
& don’t forget to fill out My Social Media Survey!

Good afternoon, gangstas.
Hope you had a lovely Friday night.
This was me at around 7:30pm…
I was one tired, lame puppy.
Today is going to be dedicated to cleaning, running errands, case studies, and eating delicious Nino’s Pizza with the boy toy. YES. Excellent Saturday.
I need your help!
I may or may not have mentioned that I am working on my Senior Project, the topic being Social Media Use and It’s Impact on the Circulation of Nutrition Information.
I’ve been doing a lot of research, and now it’s time to collect some data.
This is where you come in.
I would love you forever and ever if you took my short, 10 question survey.
Click HERE to take survey!
You now have the satisfaction of helping a poor girl get her degree.
I am forever grateful.
This is not the survey.
And don’t worry. It’s completely anonymous and there are no incriminating questions.
Good Day to You.

THANK GAWD IT’S FRIDAY!
This is my plan for tonight: Ignoring reality. That is, after I get off of work at the gym and do my homework for HR… grrr.
I need to shake off some stress, baby!
Okay. Bad joke. But I am so slap-happy that everything is amusing to me.
I had my MNT II (Medical Nutrition Therapy) midterm today. And if you follow me on twitter (why aren’t you following me on twitter yet?), you’d have read that the exam SUCKED.
I went from brainiac to birdbrain in the matter of 2 hours. Do’h! Such is life, I suppose. I’m a fairly good test taker, so hopefully I didn’t do as bad as I thought. BTW, isn’t brainiac an awesome word? I really should start using that more often.
Welp, my birdbrain is fried now, so this is about as much as you’re gonna get out of me today.
Sorry about that.
Happy Friday, BRAINIACS!
