fort worth zoo


Yesterday we decided to check out the Forth Worth Zoo. Every wednesday it's half price which is pretty awesome. We all didn't get there until pretty late so we weren't able to see the whole thing but I'm thinking we'll go back next week. 

There is a Barney video that Brooklynn LOVES to watch called "Bareny goes to the Zoo". It just happens to be filmed at the Fort Worth Zoo! So funny! We've seen it so many times that I recognized SO much of the Zoo! It was fun! Minus the heat...

I'm looking forward to going back!!! :)

10 day challenge.

Alright friends. It's time to buckle down and get serious.
I've been saying I want to lose weight for almost 2 years now and I'm sick of it.
It's time to stop talking about it and get it done.

So today starts the 10 day challenge part 1.
I am doing this with my girlfriend Nicole.
The goal is to complete a set amount of miles, sit ups, and push ups in 10 days.

Our first 10 day challenge is this..

30 miles (3 miles a day)
500 push ups (50 push ups a day)
3,000 sit ups (300 sit ups a day)

That's how it breaks up if you do it evenly throughout the 10 days. But if you miss a day not all is lost! You can make it up the next day. 
Or if you are feeling extra motivated one day you can do more than the said amount for that day..

So that's our goal for the next 10 days..

Once the 10 days is up we will do it again but maybe up the numbers and add perhaps squats to the mix.

I do not do well with long term goals so this is definitely more my style. 

With each post I do I will update you with how much I've done.

I'm very excited about this! It is going to be awesome!

Wish us luck!!! It starts today!!

a little fun.

We are finally in ft worth and starting to feel settled. We went a while without internet or furniture which was pretty much no fun at all.
I've taken a ton of little random photos but I'll post those next.
A couple days ago my friend Tiffany and I decided to go check out a museum in downtown Ft. Worth. 
I must say it is the most uncomfortable I have ever felt. The people were SO rude to us! We had our kids with us but they were being so good. Brooklynn and Pierce were both sitting quietly in their strollers but still they were acting really rude towards us. So we only stayed for about 15 minutes then left to go get ice cream to cheer us up! haha.

Since the museum was such a bust we wanted to do something that would be fun. So we headed over to the ft worth water gardens. This place was pretty cool.  Random little pools and fountains. There was a huge water fall pond/fountain that you could walk into on these stepping stones. It was pretty cool but kind of scary at the same time! It turned out to be really fun minus the heat!

I'm liking in here so far!
