Making a List. Checking it Twice?

No double checking this list. It is only a brain hurl of things I think I want to do sooner or later (think near to mid-term future). I am on a short hiatus from "tings" right now, but want to hit the ground running when I'm ready. As much as I love the thrill of last minute ventures, well planned ideas always have a place in my heart and lifestyle. Plus, I enjoy the training aspect of events. So here's a list and maybe a reason why I think I should do things:

1. Run another 5k - free shirts, little training, charity

2. Xterra tri (sport/sprint length) - last one was horrible tough, but fun

3. Road tri (sprint or oly distance)  surprisingly fun

4. Be a PR girl! - Denver area fitness, figure, and bikini team, they're fun and workout a lot (like me)

5. NPC figure contest - see #4, it only makes sense to compete when you're on a team

6. Crossfit Games - Grueling and fun, good energy, plus I get to see the people I facebook stalk

7. Earn more money - I seriously need to put that PhD to work

8. Travel more - culture is great, getting in some of my own is better, sharing it with Andrew=awesome

9. Motorcycle class - I have two of these things but did zero riding last season, I need to get reacquainted!

10. MSC race - Mountain. State. Cup. It's for mountain bikers, equally as enthusiastic as roadies but with less pretentious beings and far less "snoot" than I've got at road events. Apparently, I smell of "mountain."

11. Get Vitamin D - everyone should photosynthesize, it's what skin was meant to do

12. Pole vault - because I love it

13. MMA - I've tinkered with the idea of an mma fight for years and I need to stop that and actually "do that"

14. Balance Crossfit with my other hobbies - I'm Crossfit-centrique right now. There's a reason for that. I'm missing out on my other hobbies though and when the gaming is over, I want to return to a balance between hobbies.


What are your plans for the future? Maybe not next year, maybe it is next month. But if you plan, what are your plans?

Dream Planning Realization #1

For quite some time, I could tell my life has been slipping away from me. Not in that dying sort of way, at least not physically. However, I have sunken more into my work in the name of having a better life and all I have to show for it is - more work. Not exactly the way I thought I'd be digging myself out of the work hole. It isn't that I view my work as a hole and am unhappy with it. I love my jobs. I do. And that's part of the problem. They give me a means to meet other needs, while still being pretty darn likable. So I don't realize when I need to pull back to focus on the other things in my life. You know about the other things - friends, family, health, wellness. Things. Example - I work to earn money so I can take my family on trips to neat places. I have worked. I have made money. We haven't gone anywhere. For the past few years, my brother has been living in different places and it wasn't until recently that we ventured out his way for a visit. We m…

I'm Still Alive

Really. I am. Go figure the moment I have time to write something is the moment it all leaves me. I've been keeping a notebook to write things down throughout the day. It's done wonders for my shopping lists, my "to Google later" list, and my WTF Why Not list. Totally forgot about the blogging though. In the mean time, let me tell you that I'm still me. I've spent more time working than working out and I'm fighting to find my way through it all. I'll let you know how it goes. So far, I've identified my shortcomings: the office candy dish, lack of better options, not going to bed earlier, and straying off tasks. Stay tuned for what the hell I do to find myself back to my sane spot...

Beauty of things

I will miss Michelle Obama. She was classy and beautiful despite what the Facebook trolls would have you believe. She was an accomplished woman with a legal career before she stepped foot in the White House. She could be formal and she could dance the Dougie. She sang Carpool Karaoke and she spoke eloquently during official functions. She cared about the health of the youth of this nation. I was touched by how grounded she was and inspired by her achievements as a person, wife, and mother. I expected to read nasty comments by Facebook trolls, but I wasn’t ready to personally experience hearing negativity about her. The blatant comparison of her to a primate was ridiculous. Absolutely, ridiculous. If there is any animal to compare her to, it is a unicorn. While that comparison was as in-your-face as it could be, others were not. Beauty/class has returned to the White House. I heard that a few times. You can veil your disrespect as much as you like, but it’s quite easy to pull that on…
