I am still alive....

Hey y'all I am still here.  Since my last post things have been slightly hectic.  Let me see if I can accurately recap what has been going on.

1.  My first 8 week session of this semester ended on 3/7/14 and it could not have come at a better time.  I was at the end of my rope.  If you follow me on instagram (@assignmentamanda) then you saw that I made A's in BOTH of those classes. Holla!  This is rare for me.  I just started my second 8 weeks and I think it is going to be much easier.

2.  I turned 29 and had a really nice low-key birthday.  I will be sharing the gifts I got along with an Etsy gift card giveaway on Friday so be sure to check back.

3.  I took my first plane ride to the beautiful city of Miami.  About a month ago I wrote about my anxiety about flying and not being able to fit into the plane seat.  (Read that HERE). I am more than happy to report that I actually like flying and I had absolutely no problems sitting in the seat.  My views from the hotel were absolutely beautiful and the weather was gorgeous.  I went for business but will definitely visit again for funzies.

Excuse the no make-up face but I had to take a selfie to document my first plane ride

Right outside of my hotel.  
4.  I threw Brent a 30th birthday party.  He is simple so we just had a small gathering of friends and family at the house.  A good time was had by all.  His response was "I didn't even know that I wanted something like this and I am glad I got it."  I guess I did good.  Honey, if you are reading this just know I am still expecting my 80's themed bash next year!
My whole heart

5.  I had another meeting with my personal trainer and it was awesome.  I walked out of there feeling like a BAMF.  I have one more session with her this Friday and I will be on my own.  I would love to continue with her but at $70 a session it's not gonna happen.  She understands this and has given me some foundation that I can build on.

6.  My C25K training has been slacking.  However, yesterday I got back at it and jogged for 3 minutes straight TWICE.  It was ugly but I am counting it as a win.  I have exactly one month until my Color Run so I need to start being a little more serious about getting my runs in.

What have you been up to lately?

Until next time,


  1. Great job even with being so busy! You are doing great!

  2. 1. I told you that the seat on the plane would be no problem
    2. Glad you enjoyed ur trip
    3. Keep going on the C25K things, its hard work but I promise you can do it! I know cos I did my first 5k a fortnight ago. (I wasn't able to run the full thing but it doesn't matter, when you finish it you will feel like Rockie at the top of the steps)
    4. YAY ur back, I missed u
