barely hanging on..

So yesterday I went to see Breaking Dawn with my daughter and had MoViE ThEaTre PoPcOrN!!
I had about 5 handfuls...I think the salt was the most damaging. ..However I did do a HIIT work out.
This one is similar to what I did.

Instead of 50 seconds I did 60 seconds by using the timer on my phone.  So I had my headphones in my ears listening to music and my timer would go off every 60 seconds and I would change workouts. I was dripping with sweat after about 12 minutes. And on Sunday I actually did this for 30 minutes!

If you are not familiar with HIIT workouts here is a great guide:

So then I gotta talk about today.
 K, you know how cartoons always show the good angel/bad angel?
This could have not been more accurate for me tonight. I almost did not go to zumba because of the bad angel (I don't like referring him as the "d" word)!  The bad angel kept saying " just go tomorrow, you are too tired tonight" And the good angel said "don't listen, just go, you already have on your workout gear. you will not regret it" so I basically told the negative part of me to shut up and I grabbed my keys and drove to zumba. I am so glad I did it. Now that I just admitted that I have these conversations in my head you probably think i'm crazy?? lol. But isn't it true that we let our own selves get in the way?  And I'm not just talking about fitness, I'm talking about in our careers and our relationships. I always bad talk myself but now I need to realize it's that little red guy trying to break me down! If I can have this mentality every day I will definitely meet my fitness goals!   
So the moral of this story is to not listen to the little  red guy!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
