Pullin' myself out of the blahs

So sorry about my last grumpy post. Sheesh. I was on one that day! I've been in a bad mood for like a week already and it all just blew up on Friday. I'm sorry. I will try to be my regular perky self from now on (haha)... until the next blow up. ;) Y'all are wonderfully supportive!!! Thank you! I think I deserve a Tad Award.
Idaho was just as happenin' as I knew it would be. I believe on Saturday I was left for over 5 hours while Sei and the older boys were gone to a football game. Hmm... left hanging out with Taj and Liv while Isabel and her cousin watched Hannah Montana. Now that is such a break from the norm! Not. (Yes, I just said "not." So?)
What's up with all the blogging blahs all over the blogosphere?? It's not just me. Don't drink the water. I think somethin's goin' around. Anyway... I've decided I've gotta get my butt in gear and do something physically and spiritualy uplifting for myself everyday. So, starting Tuesday (because the kids don't have school this Monday & I'm lazy and like to sleep in...) I am going to wake up before the kids and 1st- Read my scriptures and then run, or walk or whatever the heck I feel like doing, on the treadmill until it's time to wake the kiddos up. That way I'm done for the day. And you can't start your day off any better than by nurturing your testimony of the Lord, right? I need to do this for me. I feel like crap because I'm not exercising and I'm eating like a pig. I don't eat so bad when I'm exercising, but when I'm not I just eat crap all the time. And although we have family scripture study and family prayer, I've been slacking in the personal department. So, that's my goal. Feel free to ask me in a few days or weeks how it's goin' so I'm held accountable in a sense. I don't like being down in the dumps and I'm hoping this will help pull myself out of the blahs.
And now, to show you my new found excitement for my new goals, I leave you with this: (0:54)

Naaaah...don't apologize! I was feelin' the same way recently. As recently as two hours ago. I love your motivation...how do you read scripture? Do you start at the beginning and go until the end, or study a particular book at a time, or what?

And that YouTube...now, I don't care who you are, that there's funny!

I feel the perkiness!!
I'm with help, no need to apologize :) we all have those blah/blow up things.
I'm glad you are feeling better, have new goals and posted a cool Carlton-esque video.

I'm not pretending I'm interested.
I AM!

I think it's the weather and the darkness associated with this time of year. But it really feels like February blahs, doesn't it?

I am glad you set a new goal for yourself. You are such a go-getter! Good luck!

P.S. I loved the whole Peyton SNL show. This skit was pretty awesome and I know why you are so attracted to it with all your dancin' skilz.

I know how you feel about having people asking making you accountable--that helped me get the exercising and the chocolate thing done!!!

I enjoy you--perky or grumpy. (Go back and read all of your posts that make the rest of us smile--they will brighten your day ; )

Nancy Face said...

Why are you apologizing? We ALL need to blow up or vent sometimes!

Your new goals are excellent! :)

I read scriptures every morning at breakfast, and it makes such a difference in how the day goes and how I feel about things. The reason for starting the breakfast habit is because I NEVER skip breakfast (yum yum) so now I never forget to read scriptures...except on Fast Day, haha! ;)

It's also helpful to exercise early and get it over with. You're so right...somehow it's easier to eat right when you've just put forth all that effort to exercise!

♥ the video...thanks for a Monday morning laugh! :D

Hannah Montana eh? That is rough. I am sorry for that. Hannah's voice buggeth me.

No need to feel bad for being in the dumps...we all are there sometimes! I am there often actually haha. We all love you!

I love your song today.

S said...

But I am so hungry! I woke up today and went to the gym!! First time EVOH! Diet starts monday or tuesday. You hold me accountable and I will do the same back. We need to get in shape for the holidays......double chin holiday pics are the WORST. I took a fitness test on Friday and it was U.G.L.Y. no where to go but UP UP UP on that test:)

Amanda said...

Glad you are feeling better!! :) The blahs are definitely going around. I like your goals and think they will definitely help! :) I need to do more of the personal scripture stuff for myself too. Amen to eating better when you are exercising. Why put forth all that effort just to ruin it with a big fat juicy donut? Oh, wait I did that this weekend. :(

utmommy said...

I'm totally sucking on the personal scripture study. I need to do the same. Maybe I'll follow your example.

Annie said...

I think it's great that you don't wallow in it. You are actually making plans and taking strides to change your "tude." Way to go!

Suzanne said...

Tori, we all have days like that so no need to apologize! I'm glad things are going better. Those are great goals! :)

wendy said...

I've been getting up before the kids to run 3 days a week, and I love it. It took a couple weeks to get used to getting up earlier, but now it's not bad. I should add in the scriptures...

Jenny said...

Ha! You said "not!" Okay, sorry, moving on...

I definitely need to get myself on a regular time for Bible study. When I haven't made enough regular time for it, I end up all stressed out. And exercise wouldn't hurt me either. I've already gained the amount of weight I gained in total with my daughter. Fabulous...

shay said...

I'm feeling way more than enough perk from the SNL skit lol.

And forgive me for jumping right in after only reading your blog once before but...what is up with that Hannah Montana? Do they think our kids are idiots? How could they not know she's the same girl?!

I know this bothers me waaaaaaaaaay more than it should and obviously my kids are watching way too much tv lol.

aubrey said...

Special K ~Toni said...

Girl you can have a bad day or two, we all do! Thanks for being there for me, and I will be there for you! :)

omar said...

I accept your apology. And just so you know, I will now expect perkiness from here on out. No exceptions.

(I haven't been around here long enough to joke like that, have I? My bad! High-five, Tori!)

Stacey said...

You are entitled to have days like that..we all do.

I LOVE that skit! I think it's funny when the actors can't control their giggles.

so grateful to be Mormon! said...

hi tori:)
this is great. you will be so blessed to start your days in the precious scriptures. this is the way i start every single morning. anything else in them later is just gravey because i already did my morning habit.

D&C 130:18 says we get to take this with us.

blessings girl,
kathleen
