Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to
Fernie- Mid July. I fell in love with this lake. So beautiful and peaceful, full of little minnows and snakes. I can't wait to go back.

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have

I think my worst habit is my at home procrastination. At work I'm always on the ball, I have everything done before the deadline, I love to work. At home it's a totally different story, I would much rather bum around and make excuses. I'm fantastic at being lazy at home.

I think a close second is my late night snack habit. It doesn't matter how hard I try I can't seem to stop for more than a few days. Something literally drags me out of bed in the middle of the night for a drink or a cookie.

This week is sheer madness at work, when I get home I'm exhausted and I can't bring myself to work out or even to eat healthy. Next week is a new week, I'm totally writing this one off.

Day 03- A picture of you and your friends

Yikes life got in the way and I haven't had a chance to write here in awhile.
Not doing so well with the running. I really got side tracked the last few days. So much work not enough time to do everything.
Tomorrow I'm going to run, I'm going to do some weights and I'm going to eat as healthy as I can.
Wedding countdown - 9 months :)

Today I did Week 1- Day 2 of the C25K. I really want to try the Running Room's Resolution Run. It's a 5KM run on January 1. If I continue on with the plan I think I should be right on track.

Felt pretty good. I then hopped on the bike for 10 minutes. Now I'm watching a re-run of Being Erica (oh how I love this show).

I had a fairly good day at work today. I spent most of the day in the lab for a change, definitely changes the pace of my day. I may have caused a little tension, for the first time in my working life I really stood up for myself. No need to get into details but I can say I felt good, held my ground and felt confident in a way I never have before. I loved it.

This girl needs to get herself in the shower and off to bed. Morning comes early around here.


Day 02

Day 02- The meaning behind your Blog name

No real meaning, I just liked the sound of it. Just a little of me each day to get you going.

30 Days of Me - Day 1

I came across this fun little internet game and thought it would be a good way to try out this blogging business. Basically a new little post each day.

Day 01- A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself

  1.  I'm marrying my best friend on June 18 and I can't wait.
  2. I always chew my food equally on both sides
  3. I have to have the volume control on an even number
  4. I have had my hair every color of the rainbow at one point or another in my life. I'm pretty sure I'm destined to be a a brunette for the rest of it.
  5.  If I take socks off I will not put them on again, I'll grab a clean pair
  6.  I know I'm my grandma's favorite.
  7. I love to sleep but I'm not very good at it. I have an internal alarm clock, it goes off at 7am every day.
  8. I actually look forward to going into work everyday, it makes me incredibly happy to have a place to go to everyday where I feel important.
  9.  I have picked names for the children I'm not going to have.
  10.  I hold grudges way longer than I should, I may forgive but I never really forget.
  11.  I give off the worst first impressions, truly the worst. I'm really not mean, I don't think highly of myself  I'm really just shy and nervous. Talk to me first and you'll discover the real me.
  12.  I wish I was more girly. I'm terrible at doing hair and makeup.
  13.  Watching other people eat will turn me off of my own food.
  14.  I'm terrible at spontaneity, I'm the biggest planner you'll meet. 
  15. I don't have any hobbies, except reading which isn't a very interesting hobby, kind of lonely.


First entry, I feel like this should be monumental.

Unfortunately it won't be, mostly a summary of my day, a little play by play of what I want this blog to be.

I want this to be a place for me, read by others or not, this is for me by me. I'll be free to say what I feel, post pictures of things that make me smile, daily accountability.

A big part of this blog will be my day to day life, nothing sappy, nothing too emotional just me, honest and uncensored.

I'm getting ready to make a change in my life. I'm going to start focusing on more me and less everyone else.

Here comes the new K, fitter, happier, more productive.
