It's OK Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK ...

... to mute Jillian and listen to Christmas tunes while doing the "30 Day Shred."
I adore Jillian, but after a few times through, I get tired of hearing her.
The music made a huge difference on my attention span and mood.
Lunges and crunches are so much easier while listening to 'N Sync and Michael Buble.


... to watch "Elf" and "Four Christmases" on a Tuesday night.
I was throwing myself a bit of a pity party that day.
Honestly, I was in a bad mood for no reason.
Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon cheered me up.


... that I never got to see "The Dark Knight Rises" in theaters.
I have no good reason for why I didn't go.
But it comes out on DVD this Tuesday.
I'll make sure I see it soon.


... to be ridiculously excited about seeing the "Les Miserables" movie.
The previews make me giddy every time they're on.
My family usually goes to a movie on Christmas Day, but I doubt we can talk my brother into that one.
But I will see it within days of its release, I promise.


... to consider switching from WW to MyFitnessPal.
I'll probably wait until after I meet my WW goal.
I mean, I'll want a tool to stay accountable anyway.
And MFP is free. Anyone have experience with both?


... that I won't complete National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
The goal is 50K words. I'm going to fall quite short of that at just over 30K.
But I still made great progress on my next novel.
As long as I'm writing, it's still a success.


... to feel like Hunter Hayes' CD is the soundtrack for this current season of my life.
Almost every song fits something I'm feeling/thinking/going through right now.
I feel like when I put it in the player five years from now, I will recall this time.
I might be wrong. We'll see.


... to have a hard time deciding between wine and hot chocolate.
I allow myself one treat/indulgence each day.
I love them both so much.
And, no, I can't have both. Bummer.


... to buy a bag of Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses after seeing them on multiple blogs.
They are a little taste of heaven. Or the holidays. Or both?
I will have to put the bag somewhere so I don't eat them too fast.
But I regret nothing about this purchase.


... to be in love with my new Christmas socks.
The Grinch shouldn't make me smile, but he does.
There's nothing I can wear them with so everyone can see the whole sock.
So I'll just wearing them around the house, I guess.


What's OK with you?


  1. I started using WW a few years ago (before the point system changed) and have used MyFitnessPal for months now. It syncs with my FitBit - to me it is an ideal app for accountability. I can log in from my computer, or use the app on my phone. :)

  2. I tried MFP but felt horribly confined. I just wanted to know what I was eating, calorie-wise, each day, but I ended up getting frustrated and giving up after two days. I think you should wear the socks as boot socks, coming up over the top of the boots. Why not?!

  3. I have to tell you the truth, I am going back to MFP. I don't do well on WW. I eat too much fruit. It is true. I just eat way too much free stuff. I need to be more accountable and the WW is too forgiving. That is just me. I have a month left on WW and then I am going back to MFP for good. I tried. I like the recipes though so I will probably take some of the tools and stuff but I can get that on Pinterest.

  4. OMG i love those sock!! Sorry I should read your whole blog before I comment!

  5. I can't wait for Les Miserables!! It looks amazing!

  6. I did both MFP and WW ... I really love WW a lot more then MFP. I love the WW online community/recipes ... But MFP it is cheaper LOL!

  7. LOVE those socks! I did MFP and it really worked for me. Then I stopped doing it...

  8. those socks are the best!!


    love & cheer from :)

  9. I used MFP for quite awhile after canceling my WW subscription but ultimately ended up using the LoseIt app.
