Sporty Spice

I'm rocking the Sporty Spice look today because I wore my workout clothes to work. As I was packing my bag for my butt kicking night at the gym I was thinking how ridiculous it is to have to pack my treadmill clothes and my swimming clothes and then having to change 3 times. I just wore what I will wear on the treadmill (minus the cute hoodie!) and then only have to change to swim and then again after swimming. No one around here seems to care so I guess it's okay!

My husband hit onederland last night and I'm so proud of him! We had a nice long walk with the dogs which is getting so much easier as I get stronger. I had so much energy after our walk I cooked an awesome dinner of pork tenderloin on the grill and broccolini with a ton of garlic. I watered the plants, emptied the dishwasher and finally collapsed on the sofa to watch Thursday night TV. I'm still laughing at Liz Lemon when she had the Trix up her sleeve. Absolutely hilarious.

I'm starting to feel human again instead of just a giant lump o' lard. The real me is coming back out as the pounds come off and I get stronger!

My plan for Easter involves my favorite neighbor, some champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and some egg casserole. I can easily work that in to my plan for the day. I haven't even been tempted by the candy this year but I'm sure my mom will send some cookies or something back with my sister who's going to visit them Sunday. I'm also looking forward to getting my tomato seedlings in the ground. My lettuce is coming up already and I think we may have some success with it.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Wonderful!! I love that you're just like the Scouts, always prepared.

    Good for you on the walking. Makes a big difference when you can go out walking without being winded and tired, doesn't it? Keep up the good work!!

  2. Oh my goodness - I'm totally behind on your life and just now catching up. First, you are ROCKING the food and exercise!!!! Girl, I am inspired! Second, sorry to hear about the pay cut, but I know you will persevere. Just like Miz Fit says, this can be a blessing in disguise. Enjoy quieter time with your hubby and take advantage of the library! You might enjoy reading Not Buying It by Judith Levine. I found it very interesting.

  3. Wow Tina, I feel energized just reading your post!! I am so happy for you. Tomato seedlings and too! My tomatoes are a little small for this time of the year, but I'm going to take them outside for a few hours this weekend to start hardening them off. Sounds like a great Easter weekend for you! And congrats to your husband!!

  4. Sounds like the perfect night - and Liz Lemon trying to escape jury duty by dressing up as Princess Leia in a previous episode - priceless!! I love Alec Baldwin too.

    You sound like you're in such a positive frame of mind and that's such a good place to be. I'm feeling better and better as the weather gets warmer. Can't wait to plant some flowers!

    Have a great Easter.

  5. Well done both of you!

    Love your ideas and may just steal a few of those for myself.

    Keep on being so motivated!
