Aquarium Life

I added some new life to the aquarium today! 2 male guppies, 2 male mollies, and 2 red eye tetras.  Nothing too exotic,  but I really need some new fish after so many of mine have died off over the past few months…  I was down to a platty and a mollie.  If I’m lucky my female guppy might get knocked up!

If you look closely you can see my Christmas light canvas in the reflection of the aquarium too!


Christmas in January

Getting packages in the mail today was like Christmas in January!  I almost forgot I even ordered this stuff…

Under Armour Tanktop, Blue
Under Armour Running Shorts, Black/Blue
Under Armour Sports Bra, Purple
(All from Under Armour)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets off of eBay

Yes, I’m coming out of the closet.  I’ve started the Harry Potter series, and I’m about half way done with the first book.  I’ve seen the first 4 movies and decided before I see any more I have to read the books.  So I finally caved in and bought the first two!  And I’m so glad I got the second book off eBay!  It was brand new half the price of the same book at Barnes & Nobel – and that’s including shipping.

And what kind of reward is all of this?  None.  I just wanted to buy it.   But I really did need another sports bra and this specific Under Armour one is the best!

25# Milestone & Goal Reward: New Jeans

I hit my 25 pound milestone at weigh in tonight!

At my meeting I was rewarded with a 25lb. charm for my WW key chain and a 25lb. magnet for the fridge.  Oh, and another 5lb. star for my pocket booklet.

As my reward for reaching my 25 pound milestone I got to buy myself 2 new pairs of jeans (which I needed SO bad and actually bought last week).  The first pair I tried on actually fit me like a dream.    I will no longer dread going shopping for jeans!

Goal Reward: Running Clothes

After successfully completing C25K Week 5 Day 1 yesterday, I’ve decided to reward myself with some new workout gear!  This is something I’ve wanted for a long time and I’ve finally come around to thinking I deserve it.  And I purchased it with some Christmas cash.  So it also doubles as a Christmas gift.

NIKE Dri-Fit Tee, black
NIKE Dri-Fit Tank, black

Soffe Shorts, purple/grey
Under Armor Sports Bra, black

All from Scheels

They will all look so excellent with my new running shoes.  I can’t wait to hit the gym after work!

Goal Reward: Running Shoes

Another holiday season has come and gone.  This year (like every year in the past) I’ve been spoiled way beyond what I deserve.

One present I was looking forward to and very excited about…. my new running shoes!

They were a gift from Mark and they also doubled as a reward for hitting the half way mark with the Couch to 5K program (successfully completing week 4 day 3).   When I originally started C25K I wanted to buy a brand new pair of running shoes right away.  I told myself I’d better wait and make sure I can stick to it first, so they would be a reward for completing half of the program.

And yes, I’ve been repeating the week 4 day 3 work-out for at least 3 weeks now.  I want to be absolutely comfortable with it before I begin with week 5.  Looking ahead at the 5th week work-out is very intimidating!
