Blog Luv!, Twitter {Tuesday}

Twitter {Tuesday} is Here!!

 

Happy Tuesday Luv-lies!

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed that I’m up much earlier than usual.  Have you ever been so excited about something that you just couldn’t sleep?  Try as you might, you just can’t get the darn thing off  your mind enough to get just a little shut-eye!  Every time that you close your eyes the thing just keeps running through your mind!  You know what I’m talking about.  Right?

Well, that’s exactly what is going on that has me up well before the crack of dawn.  This idea has to be tired because it’s been running through my head all night!

So enough thinking about it!  I want to tell you about it!

You know that I’m always thinking of ways that I can stay connected with you guys.  And to give you all Shout Outs for staying connected with me.

Follower LuvI can’t think of a better way to say ‘Thank You’ than to feature you right here in this spot.  Right here in my #BlogHomeSpace!  I want to tell all of my you about each other.  You know.  Sort of a ‘Thank You’ and an introductionall in one!

Thx for the Follow

The picture is a dead give-away to the idea that has kept me too excited to sleep.

The idea is a jump off from my Friday {Facebook} Feature that gives a ‘Shout Out’

to my Facebook followers.  I want to extend the Luv by giving a warm ‘Thank You Shout Out’  to all of you who Follow me on Twitter.

You know that I have to give it a name. right?

And so,  *drum roll puh-leez* ….

drumroll

An Unexpected Surprise & a Good Read

Good Afternoon Luv-lies,

Had a fun-filled weekend (read – ate a little off program :/ ).   Stayed mostly on, but I must admit that I strayed a little…. *just a little*  🙂  Didn’t make to my usual Weight Watchers meeting place to weigh in (that’s usually done on Sunday) because the festivities started waaaaay before the meeting time!  Needed Monday to recoup * come on!  You know how that is…. right?*

Went in today for this  weeks weigh in…. couldn’t find a reallllly good excuse reason to hold out any longer … to this VERY welcomed surprise!

 

 DOWN!!!   1.6 WHOLE POUNDS!!

Didn’t really expect that!  Although I ate a ‘little’ off program, most of my hedonistic indulges were either fat laden and/or salt ridden.  With that in mind, I approached the weigh-in with the mindset that “… I know that I gained something! …. I just hope that that ‘something’ is just a little bit…”

This kinda surprise … I like !!   This kinda surprise … I can do !!

And to think that I was seriously trying not to be accountable this week by skipping the weigh-in  *there’s something to be said about your conscious getting the better of you!*

Just think I would have missed on the ‘Scale’ Celebration, getting my first #BRAVO sticker for #WeightWatchers’  ‘ACE Your Summer Challenge’, getting the ‘#WeightWatchers’ Weekly’

Non Scale Victories!!!

Non Scale Victories!!!

….. and picking up this gem of a magazine that is always chock-filled with loads of great articles and even greater *delish* recipes!!

#You’reProbablyWondering –  ‘#What’sWithAll of the #Hashtags?

#HasSheCompletelyLostHerMind?

#DoesSheHaveAnyIdea   #HowDifficult  it is to #ReadThisPost  #WithAllofTheseDamnedHashtags?!  #NotToMentionSlightlyAnnoying?

Actually I do.  It’s distracting, confusing and downright annoying – as already pointed out.  So why subject you to this #hashtag — *couldn’t resist* —  cray-zay-ness?

  Well,  from the mouth of a usually grounded woman – ‘Do Tell’?

… and I do …

 Last evening, while hanging out with some of my ‘Tweeple‘  during a Tweet Chat, the conversations were moving along in the somewhat controlled frenzy that I’ve come to find comfort with.  *WOW!  That is one long run-on sentence?!*

Even thought the speed of the conversations can be a bit challenging, I manage to do a decent job of keeping up.  Most folk keep their tweets short and their retweets easy to track.  And so was the case last night.  ….. until this one tweet presented with a ton of Hashtags (#) & Mentions (@) !

Talking about being totally caught off guard and completely loss!  My first question was, – ‘What is this bullsh!gg!ty here!? Quickly followed by a head-scratching –  ‘holy sugar! who in  the tarhill is this person responding to? –  and – ‘why in the h%ll would someone post this kind of tom-foolery ?!

  Come On!

Do you reeeally expect someone to be able to follow this crap?! – *Now I’m shouting at my iPad – sorry Siri*  So glad no one’s around to witness this momentary breakdown….

As confused as I was with this tweet, I stayed put – but blocked all follow-up tweets from that person.  What?  Yes. I. Blocked. Them.  One frustrating tweet was enough for me!  ‘Thank You #Twitter for the ‘blocking’ feature – *a wink & a smile* is in order’

… then I gotta thinking….

… Reading this #Hashtag stuff is maaad crazy!  Wonder what would happen if we were subjected to #HashtagSpeak on a regular!?  I can see myself totally losing it! You? Well, you know that it didn’t take me long to find the answer to that question – oh the beauty of the internet (at least this time)

And

 here I have it …. for your listening pleasure…

*drum roll Puh-leaze*

#HashtagSpeak…. in the flesh… .ala, Jimmy Fallon!!!

Like I said,  I would totally lose it!

C25K Workout

One Mile Timed Trial…. {a.k.a.} ‘Just hobble me now!’

one mile timed run

Good Morning Luv-lies,

I wanted to share this with you guys on last Saturday

but

simply forgot….

Very early Saturday morning, (did I say very early?),  I started my first practice module for  my second C25K.    I ran my first 5k about six years ago on a whim.  I knew then, like I know now, that shear ignorance and adrenaline contributed to a successful finish (under 30 minutes).  I ‘practiced’ for this run for all of a week *goofy face*

This time, I’ve chosen to be smarter….

So, after one hour of a combination of nonstop warm up, strength exercises and sprints, the group (I think that I’ve mentioned ‘The Sisters’ before),  we gals were charged with

one last task…

the one timed trial….

This is what I Tweeted and Facebooked {is there such a verb} after all of the torture!

 

What do you think?

Do Tell….
