My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Weekend, Challenge Update and More!

Hello all of you lovely people in Blogland! :) I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Mine was great, although way too short. Isn't it always though?
Friday after work, I went to the gym with one of my friends from work. I did my 30 minutes on the elliptical plus weight training on my arms. Wow, my poor arms felt like jelly! Afterwards I went to John's and we walked to a restaurant really close to his apartment and had sushi/hibachi for dinner.. YUM! He had me try something new.. OCTOPUS! And it was actually pretty good... I fought him on it a bit, b/c I could see the tentacles and was freaking out, but I had a small, tentacle free piece, and it was good! LOL After that, we watched Taken.. it was REALLY good.
Saturday was an errand day.. I got lots of walking in throughout the day, at least 30-45 minutes worth, so I'm keeping up with my challenge! WOO HOO! Saturday evening, I went with my friend Michelle to the Hard Rock Cafe with some of her friends from Louisiana, and then we went to the Fleetwood Mac concert. It was a good show!
Sunday, John and I went to the gym..... repeat Friday, except this time I did legs and arms for weights since Saturday had no weight training. I'm starting to find muscles... Huzzah!!!! After the gym, we went to go see Wolverine. I really, really liked it! It's hard not to like a movie with Hugh Jackman in it, right? hehe

So far, so good with the 30x30 challenge. This week will be really tough because I'll be working at least 45-55 hours, but if I can make it through this week, I'll be unstoppable! I'll be catching up on reading blogs today as I am able to, and tonight as well! :)

Hope all is well with everyone! :)

I am back to the gym today too!

I love Hugh Jackman, but this movie is not my thing and I havent seen the ones before it, but the hubby saw it and loved it!
Don't you hate Mondays?
