Fitness Friday–Week 4

Week 3… umm… ran away… :)


My goals from week 3 were not exactly met. I have done a few yoga and pilates videos at home. I made a massive playlist of zumba videos on youtube. I have been keeping track of my calories on My Fitness Pal. I am getting a bit closer and closer week to staying on track with my calories. I realize how many calories are in everything!

My Goals for this next week:

1. Zumba

2. Yoga for flexibility

3. Find a breakfast that is under 300 calories that keeps me full but also wakes me up.


I’ll let you know how that goes. And what recipes I try!

Fitness Friday–Week 2

I can’t believe it’s Friday already! Ahh.

Okay so my goals from last week:

1. Do 2 yoga videos from youtube ((yeah… ummm didn’t happen….))

2. Go to zumba with mom on Thursday and Saturday. ((I did go with mom thursday, and it’s not saturday yet))

3. Take the dog(s) for a walk 2 times ((fail))

Mom and I did go to Zumba at the Jacksonville Community Center with Kim on Thursday (yesterday). It was a bit scary. The instructor, who rocks, was sick so she didn’t talk at all – I don’t know if this is normal or not… It was hard to follow along with some things because I don’t know how to dance. at. all. The time went by fairly quickly…. except… those last 10 minutes. Oh man, those last 10 minutes. They’ll get you! My knee started to burn a little. My throat was so dry from breathing heavy.

I definitely plan on going tomorrow and again next Thursday. With two bottles of water this time… or just a bigger cup. And I also will not stand directly in front of the door, with a window, to the basketball court, full of people. That was embarrassing.

This week I also redownloaded My Fitness Pal app on my phone. There have been a lot of updates since I last used it! I like it a lot. My favorite part so far: I can set up a reminder after each meal to log my calories. I have a bad habit of not thinking about what I am eating. Seeing the calories there on the screen, adding up really fast… it’s an eye opener!


Goals for this week:

1. Zumba: Saturday and Thursday

2. Log every meal with MFP. Drink only water during the day at work/lunch. Eat better breakfasts. Only one non water drink at dinner. (I love my sweet tea and I know trying to cut out all soda/tea is too hard for me right now, I’ll try to cut it all out in a few weeks maybe).

3. Take Uno for a walk. A nice mile. Last time we did more than a mile I had to pick the poor pup up and put him in the car and he didn’t move the whole way home. So just a mile for me and Uno-buno.

Bonus: do a yoga video for flexibility.

Five minute Friday : Beautiful

To find out more about five minute friday visit: Lisa Jo Baker.


This weeks prompt was Beautiful. Which I think goes really well with the fitness friday post I posted earlier. I talk about self image and there is a bit that I didn’t have a chance to talk about. My now-husband once asked me when we were first dating where my confidence came from. And I honestly don’t know. I had amazing friends when I was growing up through my “awkward” phase. And then we were noticed for the weird things we did, but those weird things made us happy. So I’m quirky and weird and those things make me happy.

I also look it this way. Today, this is what I am going to look like right now, nothing will make me lose 80 pounds in one minute. I can work towards a goal, I can try to make myself better. I do not want to hate myself today for what I cannot change today. If that makes any sense what-so-ever! This is me for the day and this is how I will live the day. Why beat myself up over it because I didn’t wake up this morning as a supermodel?

I also think there is a difference between self-hate and wanting to be better. And I think most people, especially young girls do not see the difference.



Fitness Friday–Week 1

fit friday ecard

In an effort to put more of myself out there in the world and to encourage more honesty in blogging and in body image I am posting my first Fit Friday blog.

For this foray into this I wanted to be honest about my fitness level. Which is 0… or -5. 

Growing up nobody I knew EVER exercised. Every once in a while my Uncle would have small bursts of crazy strict regimines but they never lasted long, usually a summer. I remember one summer when we lived about 5 miles apart that he just showed up at our house one day and he had rode his bike the whole way, and we are talking out in the country where the roads are NOT flat. I remember being really impressed. We had a pool at our house when I was in Jr High and High School and I would swim out there all the time. I never thought about fitness or the fact that swimming was exercise- I was just having fun. 

Jr High was when I first heard about diets. Anorexia, bulimia, water and crackers only. . . None of the girls I was friends with ever mentioned exercise only diets. I was on the chubby side back then but I never really got teased for it, luckily (especially considering the superficial school setting we were in). 

Sophomore year of High School- I joined the marching band. Which is a lot more work than I think anybody not in it realizes. It's marching, in a very specific way (i.e. moving your muscles in abnormal ways) over and over and over, in the heat (sweat) and holding your instrument in a static position. But again, I didn't see it as work or even exercise. I just saw it as fun. Can we also note the ridiculous amount of energy you have at this age? Especially considering I was having skittles and a Dr Pepper for lunch, and that was it! 

At the end of the year my friend Jacklyn convinced me that I should join the Flag line the next year and taught me the basics so I could try out. Swinging a 5.5' fiberglass pole with a yard of polyester on the end took more strength than I thought. But again... again... it wasn't exercise - it was fun! 

Junior Year - I made the flag team and between the flag camp the summer before and the routines we did that fall for halftime my arms became buff. At this point I realize a little more that I am bigger than most of my friends and actually most of my school. I started eating real lunches served in the cafeteria with all my new group of band geek friends. No more sugar for lunch. 

Senior Year - Between another year of flag and then the work I was doing with the theatre department I was always on the go. Even outside of class and rehearsals I was doing things with my friends. This was also the year that I realized that looks were very important at my school, not so much with my friends, but I did notice weird looks when I'd only wear marching band tshirts for a week straight (I still to this day have a whole tub of them). 

freshman year of college - much more rigorous marching band, three square meals a day, 30 minutes a day/ 3 days a week at the gym with Amb because she had to for her class. We would go and watch Newlyweds on the TVs above the elliptical. Some of my friends got more into fitness, but these were guys trying to actually gain weight in muscle. Ever heard of the Freshman 15? That didn't happen to me or my bestie/roomie, we both lost 20 lbs. Oh to be 18 again. 

Then I transferred to a school with no marching band... I joined in the theatre group more but sitting at a sewing machine or even building flats for sets is nothing compared to marching band practice. I gained a bit of weight. Add on that I had moved home and was now eating without really paying for it, I ate a lot more food than I should have, and bad food.

Then I started Birth Control. . . Oh how I hate it. Side effects include weight gain. Nothing noticeable at first... then over one year I had gained 20 lbs. Then another 20 the next year, and another 20 the next. This is where my downward spiral in to hating my body came in. I tried limiting my food, I tried cutting out sodas (mainly because I couldn't afford them anymore either). I bought home fitness DVDs which I could barely make through the warm-up without feeling like I was going to pass out. I transferred schools again and joined the marching band there, marching band has always kept me sane. But not at this school. It was torture every single day, and not because of the physical aspect but the mental. I wasn't a little freshie looking to impress everyone. I had upper level classes, a job, bills, and had just been dumped. I needed friends and what I got were enemies. I didn't lose any weight that semester; I did notice an increase in the tone of my arms. But it did nothing to help my overall weight.

After graduating and getting a job where I was up moving around all day I did lose a bit, like only 10 lbs a bit. Then I got a much better job that was more suited to my degree, which landed me sitting in a chair in front of a computer 8 hours a day. Then I went home and spent another 4-6 in front of the computer or watching TV. I still didn't do anything; I had no money for a gym or even good shoes. I was lost as to where to start.

Today. I am at my biggest and most unhealthy. I weigh 235 pounds. I am 5'-6" tall. I lead a 95% sedentary lifestyle. I have chronic back pain, no strength to move or open things, no stamina, no energy, and very little self-esteem. I have doubled the number of stretch marks on my hips in the last year alone. I barely fit into my wedding dress. I am addicted to sugar, and not in the joking way, in the all I can think about are cookies or a milkshake all afternoon and can literally get nothing done because it feels like my brain is screaming at me

When I started my Pinterest addiction one of the first boards I made was Fitspiration. I pinned nutritional facts on all the bad stuff. Beginner workout routines. Couch to 5k. Inspirational photos and quotes. The one big thing that I've come across (from a friend of a friend who is a nutritionist) is a pin that says "Food can either be the most powerful medicine or the slowest form of poison." 

I know I don't eat the right things.

I know I make bad decisions.

I know I need to get up and move.

I know that doing so will help my life become more satisfying, help my sex life, give me energy to do more things, and make my body better equipped to handle when I become pregnant. 

yet... here I am... barely fitting into my size 18 shorts I bought for the honeymoon. 

I have no self discipline. Nobody to keep me motivated but  myself. No body will do this for me. I'm truly afraid of trying and failing. But I have realized I am more afraid of not trying and dying. 

Something has to change, and that something is me.

So on friday's I will post, as a way of accountability. I hope you enjoy the brutal truth of what it will be like going from a couch rock (potatoes are too nice of a word) to a healthy (healthier) individual. 

Goals for this week:

1. Do 2 yoga videos from youtube

2. Go to zumba with mom on Thursday and Saturday.

3. Take the dog(s) for a walk 2 times



PS. Honesty moment: I uploaded this and put the finishing touches on it while drinking Sweet Tea and eating chips. I have a long way to go.

DIY Wedding : Making your own programs

fortytwoeleven diy bride wedding make your own programs


I am down to crunch time so in an effort to save time I went onto Etsy to try to find some premade printable programs. Some that I liked were $80, others as low as $15. After noting some of the dimensions to see how many print on one page I realized that a lot of them are 2 per page, cutting the 8.5x11 down to 4.25x11. So I resorted back to my standard thought any time I see pretty much anything…. “I could make that”… It only took me about an hour to get everything done.

I started out by editing the size of the paper down to the 4.25x11 but then realized when it came time to print that it wouldn’t print multiples per page the right way… so I changed it, and it is EVEN EASIER. I swear. I hope all those DIY brides read this and realize they can do it themselves!

I used a banner from a free digital kit I found on Persnickety Prints. I also used a glitter heart from Design Editor (follow her blog, you won’t regret it) I have a massive amount of digital scrapbooking supplies, all free. If you are looking for some elements to use I suggest starting at Quality DigiScrap blog. You can find just about anything for your wedding theme. Don’t forget about clip art and using google images or even engagement photos.

Now… Onto the tutorial…

Open Microsoft Word. Let’s setup the document to make 2 programs per page. The layout should automatically be portrait for Word, if for any reason it isn’t please make that change. Next you will setup the Margins to be “narrow” and then the Columns to be “two”. The beauty of using Word is that it is so user friendly. The setup will automatically make sure the the columns are the same size and there is a margin btwn them. So no worrying about things bleeding over.

01 setup your word document

Next it’s time to start putting in the digital scrapbooking elements or even clip art or the photo.

02 insert your digi art

There are some tricks to using photo files in word. Word will try to keep them in line with text and in the body of the document unless you select the picture and make a few quick changes. These changes will make it where you can more freely move and resize the photo file. But do keep in mind that word will now not recognize that in the body of the text, that means when you start typing your text might overlap the photo. Just enter down a few lines until you are clear of the photo.

03 format digi art

Now we can start editing the text needed for your program. What I saw on most was “the wedding of NAME & NAME” followed by the order of the ceremony events. On my “second” page which will be the back I have the Wedding Partys names and roles. A lot of them also listed a thank you to the guests or a map to the reception venue, as my reception is in the same place and my list got a little long I just kept it to the wedding party names.

I formatted the text to be centered in each column for my preference but that is up to you and how you want yours to look. You can add as many digital elements you like, and you can also use which ever fonts you like. I will show you how mine turned out and some extra tips for formatting the text for better placement.

04 finished product

Fonts Used: Titles – Branboll, Names – Dead Hardy, names and details – Yummy Cupcakes

A few extra settings to help with the spacing btwn lines. If you notice in word when you hit enter to go down to the next line the spacing might be more than you want, like where it says bride’s entrance and then lists the song I wanted those right next to each other. Also where it says the wedding party title and then the names listed.

05 line spacing

Make the spacing 1.0 and it will probably say “remove space after paragraph” and you will want to click that to remove that space. If you want to add it for spacing btwn the different parts of the wedding party like btwn the groomsmen and the bridesmaids just add that space back in in lieu of adding and extra “enter” space.

Printing: Since this is the front and back of your program on one side, all you need to do is insert the paper once printed into your printer the other way around and the program will print the front on the back of the back and the back on to the back of the front… (confused?) I would suggest printing these on cardstock.

Cutting: If you have a paper cutter just line the edge up with 4.25” and cut away, if you print these at Staples they will charge $2.00 to use their big paper cutter to cut multiples at once. I would suggest this to save you a headache of cutting them over and over and over. DO NOT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY TRY TO CUT THESE WITH SCISSORS. Please… just… don’t.

Cost breakdown: I made a call to Staples for pricing and was told for full color front and back it was $1.98 a page and then the additional $2.00 for the full order to cut. I have used Office Depot a lot and have sweet talked them into only charging full color for front and black and white for the back since technically the back is black and white, which will save almost half the cost. For cardstock they typically upcharge you anywhere from $0.07 – $0.25 depending on the paper you choose. If you are printing at home make sure when you print in your printer settings that you have it on either “high quality” or “photo” settings so that you won’t get any streaky lines in your clip art items. (also note that a lot of printers now a days will not feed cardstock from the bottom tray, if you have a feed tray from the back it works, the cardstock will not curl around the rollers on the inside. If you want to print at home but yours doesn’t have a back feed tray then look into “resume” paper, its thicker and has a nice texture to it and will feed through printers.)

I hope all the other DIY brides out there find this tutorial helpful in making there day exactly what they want. I am so glad we are DIYing a lot of our stuff, cuz even if I wanted to find some of the things I want, it just isn’t out there. Our Wedding is not traditional. And I wouldn’t want it any other way!

Much Love,

Something New Tuesday

So in an effort to broaden my horizons I have dedicated Tuesday to be my “try something new” day. Anything I haven’t done, which is a lot. My bestie over at Through the Lens will also be doing it with me!

Yesterday I attempted to do a Pilates beginner video… I only got about half way through. I’m extremely unfit. So I tried a different one of her videos and I actually got through the whole thing. Granted I only could do certain moves so far and I definitely couldn’t to the rocking back and forth on my spine. I ended up just thunking down on the mat and not being able to get back up.

I encourage everyone to try this out, especially as a beginner!


Here is uno helping me:


I have to give a shout out to Campfire Chic for motivating me to do more pilates.

Motivation Monday

This is a day late, I know! But I did want to share some of the blogs that keep me inspired and got me into following blogs and my renewed obsession with crafts, long before Pinterest! {I do have Pinterest board for all those deemed follow worthy so check it out for even more inspiration!}

All time favs:

  1. Max California - – So many adorable clothes for her son and her newborn daughter not to mention the things she’s made for herself! They are a great edgy family that doesn’t do “cookie cutter”.
  2. A Beautiful Mess - – Everything from giveaways to décor to running a blog and a small business to hair how tos to recipes! These two sisters are so inspiring on the way they live their life. Admittedly their style doesn’t work for me but that doesn’t mean I can’t use the techniques in a way that works for me.
  3. A girl and a glue gun - – lots of glue gun crafts, as you can well imagine, as well as a lot of tutorials on things that I truly feel anybody can do. And I love how she keeps it real (no capitalization and a lot of … heehee)
  4. Sugar Bee Crafts - – From clothing to home décor, Mandy is always posting inspiration she has found and tutorials. I like her what I wore wednesday’s because its all reasonably priced clothes or diy clothes!
  5. 52 Weeks Project - – Every week a new tutorial from around the net that doesn’t take much time. A great way to be crafty without it overtaking an entire weekend. You can also find a bunch of great blogs out there through links.


New favs: (Scrapbooking & etc blogs that I’ve added to keep me motivated to do Project Life)

  1. Campfire Chic - – Project life, yoga, and the great outdoors. I am in love with Kam and the way she keeps it real and how colorful her Project Life pages can be! Her blog motivated me to go to a Pilates class at my local community center and buy a yoga mat for at home. (More on that later!)
  2. Harper Finch - – Digital scrapbooking supplies and a ton of freebies. I love love love her colors! A lot of designers are more neutral, not Harper! She is sparkly and colorful! I have used her freebie shimmer papers to make a few prints for my friend Amber to have at her desk at her new job! I also plan on making some inspiring prints to hang in my kitchen!
  3. Punk Projects - – So many different types of things from Project Life to craft projects to photography tips!
  4. One Velvet Morning - – Lots of Project Life freebies and printables. The good stuff!
  5. This Kalil Life - – Project Life & Digital Scrapbooking along with freebies and layout inspirations!

I read all of the blogs I follow using Google Reader. I have a majority of them separated by Category (Non crafty, FAVS, Scrapbooking, Tumblr {Owls from last night, DLFLN, DGFLN, Target does it again, Disneybound}, Food, Friends, Nails). I try to keep up with them but sometimes it gets to be so overwhelming I just mark all as read and start fresh! I recently deleted about 20 that no longer posted or were no longer posting anything relevant to me (aka a lot of giveaways for things I don’t want or just sponsored posts) but then added about 10 new scrapbooking blogs by going through my Pinterest boards and seeing if I had pinned several things from the same blog.


Much love my friends! (also go follow these guys, or at least check out their blogs and or Pinterest pages!!!)

Wedding Workshop Wednesday

Today on Wedding Workshop Wednesday I’d like to share the specific items that I found (through blogs and mostly Pinterest) that we will DIY for our wedding! {People doing the DIY projects include: all of my bridesmaids, a couple of awesome friends, and my mom}

First up the flowers:

I found this awesome tutorial on paper flowers over at ellinee. I saw a bouquet on etsy that was made from books and went searching for how to make my own book page roses and the best one I found was hers. Others have you cutting out each and every petal separately. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I will say for ours the center I did 3 petals instead of 2 and I also added another 4 petal set to the stack. It takes 3 pages to make 2 flowers, we used both paperback size (the larger size not the little ones) and hardback size. I picked up a couple Harry Potter books at flea markets and my maid of honor was nice enough to donate her old paperbacks that had been a little worn out by her kiddo.

Our version:

2013-01-05 21.12.032013-01-06 15.45.152013-01-27 15.18.25

This is the inspiration for the guys boutineers(I constantly misspell that word so please just ignore it if I do it again).

I have a tub of old comics I’ve picked up here and there for a couple bucks. Time to make them useful! I might even let each groomsman pick out which comic they want…

Next up: Décor. You have to have something to put the flowers in right? I have two milk crates full of bud light platinum bottles, such a pretty blue color. And this is what I plan to do with them:

Right now all I have done is the labels off of about half. The best and easiest way to get the label off the platinum bottles is with a razorblade and just scraping small pieces at a time.


I’ll be back with more Wedding Workshops in 2 weeks!


Much Love

Wedding Wednesday

You may not know, if you don’t know me, but I got engaged on Christmas and I am in full wedding planning mode. We have actually been planning the wedding since last spring (you have to book stuff way way way in advance here, it’s crazy!)
I thought I would share with the blog-o-sphere what I am doing, where I found inspiration or tutorials and the true cost of things and doing them the DIY way.
Lets start with my wedding mood board: (click picture to see my Pinterest board)
wedding inspiration board mood board
*The red framed chalkboard became my inspiration for color scheme. Red, Black, Blue & White. And I mean Cherry-fire engine-candy apple red and cobalt blue.
*The alter I found via Pinterest is just what I had in mind. We wanted something that would block the view behind us, have personality, and be something we could DIY.
*I have never been one for flowers, so when trying to figure out what to do for flowers and budget… I came across the paper flower bouquets made from books and comic books… I fell in love with them instantly… bonus: WAY CHEAPER.
*I am personally partial to all things red so when I was trying to find some more blue to bring in I saw the beer bottles that had been glittered/spraypainted/ modge podged and thought about the new Bud Light Platinum bottles that are a really pretty cobalt blue. With the help of my Maid of Honor and one of her friends they drank enough (over several weekends) to get me almost 50 bottles! I will say tho that these are the HARDEST to get the labels off! More on that later
*I definitely want a photobooth. We are still working out logistics on having one setup since my camera doesn’t have a remote. My MoH will def be making the “Grab a Prop & Strike a Pose” sign, she has such pretty handwritting.
*I was looking for venues in our area and kept getting sticker shock for how expensive some places were and the restrictions they had on types of food and drinks. I was talking with my Mom one day and I was in the process of telling her about the prices and she asked where my friend Jexica was getting married (She deserves her own post for all the DIYs we did for her wedding, look for that in the future) and she was getting married outside at her grandpa’s pasture… So my mom just said.. “what about Memaw & Papaw’s?” It hadn’t even dawned on me that we could get married there and save literally thousands of dollars! They have 3 acres out in Lonoke that backs up to a nice big field (occasionally there will be horses or cows out there but rarely). Plenty of room for parking, 3 bathrooms for guests, a nice big deck to put the food on… This is the best idea my mom’s had for the wedding!
** You might notice a lot of I instead of We… in true manly fashion… Scott is letting me do what I want, within reason of course. But I still show him all my ideas and he just keeps saying “whatever you want baby” I will say tho that it was his idea for us to make our own cake… yes you read that right, we are making our own wedding cake. I’ll have a special post for all the tips I found online and our trial run we do to test the batter amounts and things like that.
On the next Wedding Wednesday: Paper flowers. Look for it in two weeks!

Motivation Monday

A new year, a new plan. I have planned out my blog posts and even have ideas for the whole next month written out. I made myself a blog mini-binder. Nothing fancy, just a half size binder and blank pages.

Mondays will be Motivation Monday’s! For today I am going to tell you all about my “one word, one goal 2013.” It’s more than a New Year’s resolution. It’s a goal for the whole year. A mantra.


I first saw about “One word, One goal” on Less Cake More Frosting last year and I just loved it. When 2012 went by so fast that it is now 2013 and I am going to participate!

My Word for 2013:



Fearless in trying a new craft fair. Fearless in applying for a new job and trying something new. Fearless in planning our wedding, it’s for us nobody else. Fearless in trying new crafts and going all in!

I hope to see you all for my next blog posts!

Things I love Thursday : Arkansas Razorbacks

In Junior High we had to pick an extra curricular activity. I chose band. I loved being part of the band. In High School I decided to try out for the Color Guard in Marching Band. I loved it. Every single minute of it. The routines, the muscles I gained from spinning, the football games, the crowd, the true school spirit. Oh how I miss those days.

Ever since then I have loved football and school spirit. Admittedly, I can’t follow along with what is actually happening in the game as I am just recently learning what everything is and who all the players are and their job on the team. {Thanks Scott and Amber}

Since I graduated college and have moved out into the real world I really missed having a team to cheer for and to watch when football season came around. Luckily my state has a FANTASTIC college football team – The University of Arkansas Razorbacks! Razorback football is in a whole new dimension from what my college football was. The tailgating for a Hogs game is HUGE!

I’m working on making myself a game day dress {I’ll post instructions on that!} and in the mean time I decided it was time to make myself a desktop background. Everything I was finding online was plain, boring, blah. I’m a bit of a girly girl these days, who knew?! So I made some myself {Using Microsoft PowerPoint! No fancy software needed}, and I thought I’d share a few backgrounds each week to get everyone pumped about the games!


First Ones Up: Polka dots… oh how I love polka dots!

Things I love Thursday: Evernote

I first downloaded Evernote on my Android phone to keep track of those random things I came across online that I wanted to go back to (usually giveaways that I wanted to enter, one day I will win a Silhouette Cameo!). I remembered that you could get Evernote for your computer too and downloaded it onto my new laptop. I had been looking for a good way to keep track of my thoughts and ideas for the wedding and my Pinterest board is a bit over full (anybody else?) and I wanted to make my wedding master list and have everything there in WORDS and PHOTOS.


I can break things down into Notebooks and then Notes… so I have lists and then sub lists. Does anybody else get excited about sub lists like I do? I can break down things and think about them one tiny element at a time.

And I can do this from my laptop AND my phone and they sync together so I can work on a note tonight and then go off somewhere tomorrow with my phone and be able to pull it up and remember what I need or the look I’m going for.

I really think this will be a life saver for the wedding!

{edit btwn writing this and posting it: I also added another “notebook” and converted my massive craft to do list over to it. I had a 19 page list in categories in my purse for the last month. And now it’s in Evernote!}

Much list love to you all,
