Friday Fragments

So I'm jumping on the wagon and doing Friday Fragments. I just can't seem to put together a cohesive post lately, so fragments are my brain is probably a little fragmented. :)

Mommy's Idea
I started my training with Jillian this week by using her 30 day Shred DVD. OHMYGOSH! She totally kicked my arse. Of course I realized after I did the workout that I hadn't really "worked out" in over a year. I've walked, done some cardio, jumped rope, etc...but nothing like that! I was and still am sore. But it was a great workout, in 20 minutes I felt like I used to after an hour+ at the gym.
Earlier this week I was driving home after a meeting and it was really foggy. I realized that was how my head felt lately. I just can't seem to wrap my brain around things or think clearly. I hate this feeling. I'm chalking it up to a predeployment haze. Twice recently I've been giving presentations on things I know and caught myself just reading off the slide. It's like my brain just couldn't fire.
We have had some absolutely gorgeous weather this week! Madelyn and I have been outside everyday and are even starting to get a little sun on our pale white arms. We lather up in sunscreen but still get tans. :)
I'm steeling this one from Shell, I hate when I have comments that just say "Please visit me" and don't comment on the post at all. I feel like I haven't been read and I don't like that. While I've been trying to up my traffic here and to Three G's, I don't just want numbers, I want readers and people who enjoy what I'm putting out there.
I am loving this new blanket I got. It came in a Nivea gift basket from my visit to The Ellen show and it is super soft and had a pocket at the bottom for your feet!

Hey you...Day 3 of the shred! I want to see you video your daughter doing it with you! It was much better this morning. I probably won't get any more of her in this week but will be back at her a couple times next week.

Isn't Shell the cutest little thing? I love her. It is funny how small this blog world is!

I will be mentioning you in my Sunday post if that's okay! About our challenge together!

Good luck with your exercise program. Makes me hurt just thinking about it. LOL

I love the idea of the blanket with a pocket for your feet. How cozy is that?

Stop by if you have a chance.

I hear ya about the comment thing. I hate it too. I run a comment challenge and my top commenter gets a prize for the month. Sometimes it is hard because the person winning sometimes says things like "Nice" or "Awesome" even "Cuuuutteee" but how do I stop them from being the top commenter if they are always in the lead?

Good luck with your weight loss. Jillian has helped a lot of people.

From one frog lady to another, I had to check out your Friday Frags. Love the design on your blog. Been tired of mine lately and contemplating making a change.

Someday I'll have to check out Jillian's Shred. I'd much rather do a gym workout than a video. But it seems that everyone and their brother loves the Shred.

I end up deleting most of those blatant self-promotional comments. There is something empowering about clicking that trash can icon!

HAHAHAHA Just kidding!

So first off, to prove that I actually read your post... stop rubbing it in that you went to Ellen. I like you less and less when you mention it. I love her. I thought that maybe I was the only one obsessed with her, but lately it seems that EVERYONE is. I have been trying to go to her show forever, but it never lets me submit my ticket request. I am getting so bummed.

Moving on. Ok, this weather as been PERFECT! As soon as Chris leaves we should start spending Saturdays at MY beach. It's perfect for our little babies. I guess, until he leaves we can go on the weekdays. I don't want to take you from your hubby.

And the fogginess... I think that I've been in that too. I just feel blah. I definitely think this lovely weather will help bring me out of it.

Well,you should know that I miss you. I haven't seen you in what seems like forever. I guess it's only been two weeks, but whatever. Maybe you can meet me at Denise's someday this week. I begged her to help me with Dave's name tapes. He got a new uniform and he needs them on before he leaves. I can't wait until you two have turned me into a regular old seamstress and I can do that myself.
Just reading about you exercising made me sore. I better not try it myself :-)

A blankie with feet? I so want one!

Visiting from Friday Fragments.
