The coach and I are super excited about these changing times. Both of us recently got new jobs, still doing what we both love to do - fitness and football!
In other news, we just got a contract on our FIRST house (pending the home inspection and other fun stuff). So many big things going on..... Still no excuse on the blog slacking. But I promise once things settle down. I will be back! Till then I leave you with this quote.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. -Lou Holtz

Hope you all have had a wonderful week. YEAH!!!!!! Tomorrow is Friday!
So as we continue to approach the beginning of football season, I wanted to share this special clip with all my football family and friends. I have always loved fall and ESPECIALLY loved football. My love began at a young age, and grew more and more especially during those fun college years.
Going to a big SEC school I know all about the big tailgates and die heart rivalries. It was no surprise to see the huge RVs coming rolling in on Wednesdays to set up their tailgating spots for the upcoming game Saturday. Then Friday thru Sunday you would hang out at the tailgating spot with all your college buddies and family. Man I miss those days!
Of course these days are different, but what better way to stay apart of the game than to marry it!
Early morning tomorrow! That is all for now!
Something to think about: What was your best memory of college?
Fitness tip: Fridays can be a hard day to find the motivation to get in a good workout, so why not try a hip hop dance or Zumba class (you can even try a DVD). What better way to burn calories and have fun exercising!

This week workout wise was CRAZY! I had mentioned we were short staffed at work, so I had to sub on some extra classes. Whew! It was great! I taught Spin 4 days this week, 2 barbell classes, and pilates. I definitely need the Sat and Sun to recover.
So this weekend was extra special since it was my hubby's birthday Tuesday. But of course since it is preseason, we had to celebrate Sunday. (The countdown is still going - 17 days left till kickoff)
So for my hunny's birfday, I fixed him an extra special dinner (football casserole - his fav) with a oooohhhh so yummy birthday chocolate cake and frosting made completely from scratch. Bless his heart, it has been a couple of years since he has been able to actually celebrate his birthday. I wanted to make this one extra special. :) MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
After the deployment, we were not sure what was going to happen. One thing for sure we did know was that he was not going to be staying in the Army. When we had first met, he had told me that it was his dream to become a football coach, like his father. I knew he wanted to do this, but I didn't realize exactly what he meant at the time. I was thinking OK, coaching a youth or high school football as a side job. Needless to say it took me awhile to understand exactly what he meant. He was looking EVERYWHERE for coaching jobs, mainly at colleges. BTW, this is extremely hard field to break into, especially Division I colleges. The Lord works in mysterious ways, because low and behold he did it. One summer night, he came to me and told me that he was going to pursue his dream of being a college football coach at a D1 school in Ohio. As promised after the job was found, he told that night at dinner he was going to marry me.

Homemade chicken cacciatore with whole wheat pasta and fresh parm from the farmers market

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I think they get shorter and shorter. But the good thing about this week is that it is a short one for me. My little sister is coming in Thursday evening, and we have some fun things planned. I cannot wait!
So it was a busy weekend! Maybe that is why it flew by....
I finish work yesterday, ran by a couple of places, then came home and began getting the guest room ready. Coach got in really late last night so we weren't able to dinner. Wah Wah!
Big bummer, but we got to be lazy this morning and enjoy a nice breakfast before finishing up the guest room and basement. Then to make up for not going out Saturday night. We had a nice late lunch (early dinner) at a Mexican restaurant close to the hacienda. Cannot pass up fajeetas and chips and salsa! My all time fav! Hey we all have our bad days! Every once and awhile got to reward yourself for all that hard work.
Tomorrow is a early morning, so off to bed! Have a wonderful night!
If you need some motivation to get started or back in the game, this is a great quote.
“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”
- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian
