It is 6am, and I have already finished my morning coffee. There’s still plenty left in the pot, can I get you some? The truth is that I have my shoes on. I’m waiting for my ride. I’m on my way to the gym. For like the first time in ten years, literally. I’d say that I’m in good shape, from doing ranch chores, hiking, playing with kids, and riding horses. I also had some weights at home, when I lived in California, but I have not set my foot in a gym in probably more than ten years.

If I had to pick one every day thing, besides eating right, that helps me stay fit it would be throwing in some sets in between laundry/cleaning and other stuff that just has to be done all the time. Pump the music up and have some fun! #feelinggood #ontopoftheworld #everyday #fitness #weights #chores #fitgirl #fitmama #workout
Have an awesome Monday!
In all the excitement over going to the gym, for the first time in ten years yesterday morning, I forgot to tell you a couple important things. (The gym was a lot of fun, and I went again this morning.) Like the fact that I sold my car on Sunday. Yes, the one I bought two months ago.. I wanted a fuel efficient, reliable vehicle to drive from northern California, to Las Vegas, when I moved. I sold my old truck, and bought this car. In my head it was going to be convenient to have a car in the city, instead of a truck. However, I don’t really drive around in the city. I miss being able to take the backroads, and go play in the mountains. Therefor I sold the car, and I’m going to start looking for a 4×4. I’ll probably try to find a good deal on a used truck.
I also forgot to tell you that I had a conversation with the family I work for, about working less hours. It just doesn’t make sense for me to work 60-70 (or more) hours/week. Starting November I will only work 40 hours/week. Very happy about that! …and I’ve started to look into ways of working towards my PhD via an online University. I found out that I need to get a Masters first… I’m totally clueless when it comes to various degrees. I’ve looked at a few different universities. I would like to study developmental psychology with a focus towards younger children, which is my area of expertise.
I love school, always have, and I want to learn more. I have a BA in Early Childhood Education. I believe that part of my mission in life, is to encourage young children, and gently guide them while they are discovering their world. To guide them towards asking the right questions, and learning how to look for those answers, in our ever changing world. In a fun playful. I would love to add more knowledge about the psychological side. I’m hoping to find a curriculum that allows me to study at home for the most part, at my own pace, while I am working. Some universities required an in depth English test for students, with another native tongue than English. I took one of those tests, that had one reading part, and one listening part. After the test your score put you in one of six categories, from beginner (lowest level) to proficient (highest level of understanding.) Honestly, I was clueless as of which category I would land in. I did end up with a score that put me in the highest category. That felt good. I understand that I would have to work a little harder than native speakers, but I’m up for that challenge, when I find the right program. I’m not going to rush this. I’ll just follow my intuition. Like I always do.
Alright, time to hit the shower before the work day begin. I really enjoy this new thing of going to the gym in the mornings. It feels great! Grab another cup of coffee if you like, and have an awesome day!
Yes, I missed writing yesterday, morning, and it’s already Thursday! I had a wonderful day yesterday. I slept in (to about 6ish..lol,) did not go to the gym. I am going to the gym today though, in a few minutes. Which I’m pretty pleased with, since it’s the third time this week.
I actually got off work early yesterday. The little angels I’m taking care of had a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. I started to look at trucks. Had a nice dinner at a restaurant, and spent the evening watching scary ghost adventures on TV. It’s almost Halloween…
It is Friday, and almost 7am. It’s going to be an awesome day today, right? Today I’m going to do my exercise outdoors, but I did go to the gym yesterday morning. It was the third time this week, and it feels fabulous.

I’ve been trying out some new contacts this week as well, and they are so much better than the ones I had before. All in all, this week have been treating me really good so far. How is your week?
I’m hoping to see my daughter this weekend, read some good books (I have several new books waiting for me to devour them,) and definitely going to look at some trucks this weekend. I’m hoping to do some photography as well. Before my move to Vegas I upgraded to a full frame camera, but I have barely used it. I’m very excited to be working a little less from now on, because working so much definitely affected my photography. It feels like a piece of my soul is missing there. Do you know what I mean? I’m very excited about this cooler weather, and all the opportunities it brings (spending more time outdoors without risking a heat stroke..lol.)
