It's OK Thursday!

It's been a hot minute since I've done It's OK Thursday.
I figured why not give it a go today?
I'll be linking up with Neely and Amber. Join me!
It's OK...

..that I'm not obsessed with JT's new song. I know it will come in time.
I am, however, instantly obsessed with Nelly's new song, Hey Porsche.
That man can seriously do no wrong.
At this present moment, I'm also loving The Lumineers, Ho Hey & Hunter Hayes' beautiful song, Wanted.  

..that I began the Couch to 5K app yesterday and at 15 minutes I was hurtin'. 
Couch to 5k is an app that slowly 'teaches' you to run a 5k in 2 months time. 
I'm not a runner (nor will I ever be) but I do have a goal of running a 5k. 
It may not be in 2 months. Heck, it may not even be this year.
But, it is a goal of mine & achieving goals is important to me.
It helps motivate me in other areas of my life & extra motivation is never a bad thing.
Below you'll find the instructions for the first week of running.
They want you to work out a total of 3 times a week for 20 minutes, which is an attainable goal. 
.. that after having my first day of the new app, I was fully prepared to eat semi healthy. Nothing drastic because food is my happy time, but I certainly didn't expect to stuff my face with Hibachi. 
When I finished cooking my dinner at 7:30, the boyfriend calls and tells me to throw it away because we're going to Kobe (aka Food Coma God) with some friends.
Being the budgeter that I am, I saved the food for tonight and we headed to Kobe.
Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, EXTRA noodles, rice, soup & salad. And I'm spent!
The best part is the leftovers that I'll be eating immediately following my day 2 of the app. Oops! 
.. that my tax return is not exactly what I hoped for. A few hundred more would have
been ideal but I'm happy with anything, really. At least they are done and the money is on it's way! :)

.. that I got angry when reading this article. Sarah sent me this link disproving that.
Luckily, my plans to go find a Congress member to adopt me today have been canceled.
However, there are still many laws that Congress passes that they don't have to follow. I just don't get how the people that make the laws, don't have to follow them. Doesn't make any sense to me, at all.

.. that I have zero plans for this long weekend. I wish I was going on vacation or some sorts, but I can't afford that right now and it will be nice to get some errands done around the house. Last night, I cleaned & organized 3 separate closets. The spare bedroom closet  will hopefully be tackled this weekend :)

... that I've never been garage sailing and I'm dying to go.
I'm hoping to pick up some old pieces of furniture or home decor items and go all Pintester on them. 

... that I plan on doing absolutely nothing tonight because SUITS is back and we're throwing ourselves a mini Suits partayyyy.

That's all folks!

  4. Is it okay that I thought at first garage sailing was an actual sport? It took me way too long to figure that out. Good luck on the Couch to 5K!

  5. Congrats on starting Couch to 5K! You may end up liking it ... it's better than therapy for me :) I started in high school, and minus a few breakups (like after the NYC Marathon ... woof), we've had a pretty good relationship! If you want any pointers, just let me know!

    I have a goal to do a 5K this year too, I think I'll have to check out the Couch to 5K app too. I like to think that I'm a runner, but I'm totally not,, haha.
