by Courtney on August 31, 2011

Ohhhhh man am I excited. Partially because you guys get to have your fifth installment of ‘Full of Tangents’ tonight. But there’s so many other reasons than that! So now, let’s see why… -I’m heading to mom and dad’s house for dinner tonight. I mean, I’m always excited to see mom and dad anyways… …but […]


I Like To Keep Things Spicy

by Courtney on August 31, 2011


Today is Wednesday (duh, Courtney). This means that today’s workout would typically look very similar to this workout, including a big ‘ol mash-up of cardio, strength, abs, and/or yoga. As I’ve mentioned before, one of the reasons for my love/hate relationship with Wednesday workouts is because I usually have no plan. This is why I […]


No Focus

I feel like such a scatterbrain today! No particular reason why, but I just can’t seem to focus or concentrate on any one thing for more than five minutes. It’s currently 8:40 as I’m typing this sentence and I actually sat down to start it at 8:05. Hopefully this is not a sign for what’s […]

Upbeat Workout Playlist

Man, you guys have some killer music recommendations! Thank you all so much for weighing in with some of your top choices. This afternoon I finally sat down, purchased some newbies, and created a brand spankin-new workout playlist. It’s a mix of new songs, songs from my last playlist, and some super old school songs […]


A Little Extra Pep In My Step

So I realized an exciting little tidbit this morning… I have a $10.00 gift card to iTunes to use up! I received this about a month ago from Shop It To Me and totally forgot about it until I found it today underneath a pile of papers on my absolutely atrocious mess of a desk. […]


Rolled With The Punches

by Courtney on August 30, 2011

Well, today didn’t start off exactly as I planned. I woke up a little later than normal (but still bright and early at 5:15am) to head to the gym. I decided last night that I was going to take a BodyPump class this morning, but since I slept a few extra minutes, I knew that […]


I Have No Shame

Somebody out there please help me feel a little less sheepish… Please tell me I’m not the only one who has an extremely difficult time salting her own ear of corn. Honestly. Sweet Tooth Courtney Fun Fact: I’m 99% positive that I continued to make my mom or dad salt my corn on the cob […]


Why Does He Do That?

I’m switching things up a bit this afternoon. Somebody was complaining that he wasn’t getting enough face time on the blog. I’m not going to mention any names…I think you’ll know who I’m talking about. Recently, Jay was telling me how he came across an article all about cats, explaining some of the funny things […]


Waiting Since Last Night

Good morning and happy Monday! Is everyone feeling well rested from the weekend? Hopefully if you were in the path of Ms. Hurricane Irene, then life is back to normal for ya. Just in case you were too busy fighting off high winds and heavy rains this weekend, here’s what you may have missed: They […]


They Knew It Too

Not only has today included some delicious food, but it’s also been productive yet lazy, AND Irene turned out to be just what I expected…a whole lot of nothing. I’ll get to all of that eventually but first, let’s talk breakfast. First we have omelets yesterday, and now pancakes today? Seriously, I love weekend breakfasts […]
