BYOC – Bring Your Own Craziness

Yep, I’m jumping on the “band” wagon. Ha ha, get it? Yes, I am hilarious and here all week!

Week so far recap first though:
  • Toss all crap food from the house. Yes, it is a waste, but I don't care. It has to be removed from the house. - DONE....Good comment Trixie on that post. ("Just remember, it's NOT a waste if you toss it out. It's a waste if it ends up on your waiste.")
  • Make a menu for the week and stick to it. – Yes for M-Th, Going to have to figure out today – Sun.
  • Go to 5 bootcamps. Stretch goal: Add 2+ workouts on top of bootcamps. 5 +1 so far. Maybe I can get my butt to move again tomorrow and hit the stretch goal!
  • Drink, drink, drink! Increase water in the hopes of flushing some of this bloat out of myself. I have been a drinking fool! (Thanks for joining me Jody V!!!)
And, now, courtesy of:

Love or money? High salary or job satisfaction?
What’s that expression? You can love a rich one as much as a poor one? It’s not so much $$$ for me, it’s ambition, drive, and success. If my husband was a teacher, but was all those things, then that would work for me. NOTE: I love teachers. I only use it as an example, because being a teacher is a GREAT job, but in my opinion teachers are not paid enough.

Both on salary and job satisfaction…I actually have more of a three-legged stool on jobs. Leg one: Salary. Leg two: The Job Itself. Leg Three: People you work with. It’s a balance between the three. If you are not adequately happy with the three, guess what? Your stool topples over and it may be time to consider if something needs to be done. And here’s a surprise, it’s rare to be completely content with all three, (man, you are a lucky dog if you are!) but usually as long as two of the three are strong they “can” compensate for the third leg. (Uh, quit typing…OK, stopping now as I am not even sure this makes any sense!)

What is your favorite time of day?
Man there isn’t just one time of day. I like mornings after I’ve finished bootcamp. I like any time of day spent with my hubby or friends. Ah, sleep, I like sleep. Etc.

My in-laws just had their wills done so it made me wonder this. Do you have a will? Did you tell anyone your wish to be kept alive or not?
We have talked about what happens if one of us is critically injured, etc. No kids, so has not been a priority, but it is on our “to do” list.

Repeat question. Pick one thing for one day you'll do next week that aids in your physical or mental health.
I will go to bootcamp M-F. I will put a smile on my face and tell myself that I can do anything that she challenges us to.

Repeat questions. Make someone a superstar for a moment...whose comment or blog stuck with you this week and why.
I honestly can’t think of just one. Sorry…I kinda suck, but the blogs have rocked!

Wow you are a longtime bandster. Just reading thru your blog. You have done great! are right...teachers are not paid nearly enough. :)

I make a menu each week; it saves on calories and money.

Happy weekend!
