Say Hello to Stormy McSexyPants

My collection is growing! This obsession really needs to get under control. Ok, Who are we kidding!? I am pleased to introduce my new boomama STORMY McSexyPants. Or just stormy for short.
 Isn't she beautiful!? I needed some simplicity in my life. I'd been carrying around the one Mac chewed up and I just wanted a dark leather cover without all the hullabaloo. The minimalist look is really working for me. As soon as I realized what I wanted, I got in touch with Yochanan Israel at ZenKraft Traveler's Notebook's and told him all the details. He is the same person that made Brownie, and I absolutely love the vintage deep chocolate look of all his notebooks.
 Let's be real. This shot is orgasmic for the journal lovers out there! Who needs Christain Grey when we have leather notebooks?
 And I can literally sniff it TheHubs was like "Are you ever going to put it down". The answer is no babe. Absolutely not. It smells like babies and feels like puppy kisses!
 Ummmm wait, Did I mention.... POCKETS!!!! I no longer need my clear folder to hold all my sticky goodies. I can stick the, right in the pockets. He even threw in an extra pocket in the back! AND A MOLESKINE CAHIER! You know those are my absolute favorite!
 Right now I have 4 notebooks inside. I am still waiting on A few goodies from China to complete my set up, and then I will do a video. Until then, 7 million pictures will have to suffice
 This is the cover of my daily (Chanel is ALWAYS in). Which I have now replaced with a cahier because my soft cover moleskine was too large for my slim simple baby. This is a great way to make sure that only super important items make their way in there. I loved Wanderlust, but she is too bulky for everyday carry. I just don't want to do it anymore. And I had so much stuff in there that I didn't really need.
 Here is the first page in my new daily. I dig it. Just some random stuff about what was going on.
 Here is another one of my inserts where I do all of my novel stuff. She has been dormant as of late. Better get back on that.
 Ohhhhhhh and this is my sticky note dashboard that I have in the back of my daily. They stick perfectly. May move stuff around when my other package arrives from China.
 This is the last notebook I have is a Piccadilly, which I may be getting rid of because its a little thick and it wont fit when my other stuff arrives. We shall see.
 And ---- MORE POCKETS!!!!!

I am very please with Stormy. I should have gotten her about 1 inch larger I think. Just a smidge. I think I underestimated how much I actually wanted to fit inside. But overall. I love her to bits and she had to leave my hands for quite some time today while I taught. Darn job getting in the way of my leather hahahaha!

So, what do you think when it comes to journals; Bigger is better or Thin is in?

Salads, Salads, Everywhere

Let us be honest. I'm getting tired of Lettuce.  You see what I did there? Huh? Huh?  PunQUEEN reigns supreme!!! Ok, to the point. I've been eating soooooooooooo much salad lately. Mostly those little side salads from Wendy's. 120 calories (sans dressing) and only cost $1.79. Can't really beat that. There is also that little half a sandwich that I got when I went to Applebee's with my coworkers. I had 1/2 then (with another damn salad) and 1/2 for lunch today. That is progress because I wanted succumb to my urges and eat the entire thing in one setting. But I didn't! Hooray for small successes!

I've also been making Planet Fitness my second home. I really enjoy it there. For what I want to do anyway. I don't think this would be the right gym for serious body lifters as they don't have a huge range of equipment. Their free weights only go up to 75 and they don;t have things like jump rope or bosu balls. But for me, right now, restarting this fit life, it is the perfect setting.

All I can see in this picture are big ass calves. The reason my boots don't fit. Damn it!

Anyway, I end with this awesome picture I took while being bored out of my mind at a staff meeting and this throw back picture of me when I cut off all my hair some years ago. Enjoy! SHE GOT THEM LIPS THO!

What about you. To Salad or not to Salad, that is the question?

My Day at the Gym

My day at the gym....

▶️On the stair stepper for my warm up thinking "this just can't be life" 

▶️thinking "I must look crazy walking around with this wig cap on. And those arms. Lord when did those arms get so big?

▶️doing the 12 minute ab station like a boss. Yes I stopped to take a picture, there is a red light green light situation and instead of resting, I decided to snap a pic for the world. 

▶️on the treadmill listening to "sanctified" thinking I was an actual rapper out here in these streets. "All I wanted was a hundred million dollars and a bad bi#ch" and so on and so forth. Thank you Rick Ross for the worst best song ever. 

▶️street Cred ruined when "clarity" came on and the endorphins pulsing through my body along with the song in general made me cry. Actually cry on the damn treadmill   For like 7 seconds. I couldn't believe it. But whent that beat dropped I felt that swell in my chest and that was all she wrote. 

#sowhat #icried #lame #workout #planetfitness  #getfit 

In other news... I was super cute today. 

Yep. Cute as a button. We were back to work, but it was basically a day to get stuff done. I was comfy chill. I love the idea of students coming back on Thursday instead of Monday. We educators need that slow transition back to teaching lol. 

Let's also talk about planet fitness having pizza today. Wtf is that about. NOT TODAY SATAN! I walked right the hell outta there. 

Do you talk to yourself and narrate your gym going experience? Or am I just a weirdo?
