Spring Starts NOW!!

Sayonara Winter, and hello Spring!!! Today is the first day of Spring and I could not be more excited about it, y’all!!!

To celebrate, this morning I headed out for a nice two mile walk/jog around my neighborhood. It was actually a bit chilly when I started out(50 degrees) but I warmed up a couple minutes into it and really enjoyed the slightly cooler temps, especially with the sun shining down on me.

You know what else made my run enjoyable?

My new IPhone 5!!!

Yesterday I found out I was eligible for an upgrade and boy was it needed. My last piece of crap phone,  the Samsung Infuse was irritating me on a daily basis. It was constantly freezing and frustrating me so I was pleased to get rid of it. Of course, I am a cheap-o as I have mentioned many times before so I figured I would just get the free upgrade(IPhone 4) or the 4s if I was really convinced by the salesperson.

I went to Best Buy to upgrade and they have a phone trade-in policy. I was able to trade my old phone in and get a $105 credit towards a new IPhone. Now, that is what I am talking about, people!! Long story short(ish), I ended up with the IPhone 5 and couldn’t be happier with it!! I also ended up with an $80 case to protect it because this momma can’t afford to purchase a new one before her two years are up. Ha!!

Back to that whole workout thing now!! After my run, I came home and did a quick upper body workout. It may have been quick but it killed. There was really no rhyme or reason to it but it kind of looked like this:

  • bicep curl to shoulder pess
  • overhead tricep extension
  • triple scoops(these kill, for real!!!)
  • salt and peppers(another killer!!)
  • tricep kickbacks
  • pushups

I did about a minute of each exercise without rest and then went back through and did a few more randomly. Cause I am like that….kind of random, ya know 😉

After working out I was S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G!! I should mention that it was almost 10am by this time and all I had consumed thus far was a cup of coffee. Bad girl.

I whipped up a quick breakfast of Ezekiel raisin toast with some natural peanut butter and a cup of Oikos Banana Creme Yogurt. Delicious and filling. Sort of. It will at least hold me over until lunch time which will be happening in oh….about 45 minutes!!

Now however, it is time for me to get cleaned up because I have some errands to run. Between my little Liam having his 5th birthday party this weekend and Easter next weekend, I have some major party planning to get finished up.

Questions?

How are you celebrating the first day of Spring?  Is the weather warming up in your neck of the woods?

What type of Smart Phone do you have? Do you spend a lot of time on your phone?

I do. Too much actually and I am working on that.
