Experience 20 - Get MOVIN'!!!

So part of (almost) everyone's New Years Resolution is to get in shape.  I know I want to be bikini ready soon-- even if I am, I'm terribly shy and will prob cover up-- but I want to be ready just in case.  My husband hasn't been playing soccer multiple times a week because of his knee injury, and he continues to eat the same bad foods.  It's now starting to show around his middle and his pants are getting quite tight! We can't afford new clothes now, so it's off to moving our butts!

We started yesterday afternoon with a goal of one hour.  Downstairs we went where we have an elliptical and weight set.  We stayed there for maybe 20 minutes. I felt like I was going to vomit.  We decided to take the exercising outdoors. I rode the bike which was much more managable for a first-day workout and he jogged with Lolita, our pug.  Guess who got tired first?

LOLITA!  Here's the photo:
She looked much more comfortable in his arms :)  We're gonna see how long we last with the working out thing.  Our goal is one hour 5 times a week! I'm excited to see how my body changes to the exercise!

Have a great week everyone!!

Experience 19- Something Smells Fishy!

Some people say I'm a picky eater. For me, I'm only picky when it comes to animal products (anything dairy/meat/fish, etc).  I've never been a fan of any fishy smelling food with the exception of shrimp, but I can't eat it cold.

I always tell everyone I wish I loved fish because it's so good for you.  Tonight, hubby fried some frozen Mahi Mahi that we had -- leftovers that we took from my dad's house when he moved out of state.  I was super hungry and didn't feel like cooking anything for me so I tried it.... and BOY was I in LOVE! That fish tasted like chicken, my favorite meat. 

Don't be afraid to "re-try" food that you swear you hate. Tastebuds do change over time, and who knows, maybe the person who prepared the food the first time you tried it just stinks at cooking :-D

Experience 18- Opening a Twitter Account

Yes, I know I'm far behind if I'm just now opening a twitter account.  I decided to see what it's all about. So far, it hasn't thrilled me much, but maybe you have some tips to share with me?  I'm not really sure what to do with it except to find friends haha. We shall see how long I can keep up with it :) Feel free to add me if you want to... @jmmccarr

Experience 17- Indian Wedding!

This past weekend one of my really good friends got married in Florida.  Hubby and I took a short roadtrip for the special event.  I have been to an Indian wedding before, but we showed up late (and I wasn't officially invited and went with a friend who took me along) and I didn't see much.

We made sure to arrive early since we had no idea where we were going and it was in the middle of the country! (Lange Farm in Dade City if anyone wants to look it up).  I was surprised to see that the ceremony was going to take place outside next to a bunch of horses! And yes, you could hear them during the ceremony which was BEAUTIFUL but very long.  My butt hurt so much sitting in those chairs for an hour and a half!  Take a look at the bride, Gita, isn't she beautiful?!
After the ceremony we enjoyed some wine and INDIAN FOOD-- my favorite.  Hubby was disappointed that it was completely vegetarian! (I enjoyed it :)
