good and bad

Posted: September 28, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Good: Waking up to a chill in the air, which you have awaited for months.
Bad: Having to drag yourself out of the cozy covers into said chilly air.

Good: You haven’t had any more charlie horse cramps in your legs.
Bad: You now drink over a gallon of water per day to prevent them, and therefore run to the bathroom every 30 minutes. Literally. I counted yesterday.


Good: Heading to spin for a great workout.
Bad: Sitting around all gross and sweaty because you can’t motivate yourself to shower just yet.

Good: How cute your little girl is and her power to melt your heart.
Bad: The fact she knows she is so cute and uses her power to push your buttons and see just how much she can get away with.


Good: Having loving family members who share gifts.
Bad: When the gifts take up more floor space than some of your furniture.


Good: Getting rid of the concrete feeling temporary crown in your mouth today.
Bad: The fact that includes a visit to the dentist today.

Good: How much I love blogging, reading your comments, responding to emails, etc.
Bad: The fact that blogging gives me an excuse to procrastinate on some cleaning. Although, even without blogging I would still find another way to put it off so it doesn’t really count, right? 😉


Good: Having leftovers for lunch.
Bad: It fuels the fire of my food rut. I guess its still good if they’re veggie filled though.


Good: Having the positive attitude to forget the bad and focus on the good.
Bad: What bad is there in that? Even though there are two sides to every coin, we always have the choice on which side we look at. That is always a good thing!

    I am with you. Good-went to yoga Bad-still sitting here in sweaty yoga clothes.
    Also–are you reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? I just started the third book–I could not put any of them down!

  20. She is so incredibly adorable and the fact that she knows it…makes her even more adorable!

    Love that Free Willy has taken ownership of your floor.

    Request: I’d love to hear more about the pros/cons of your competition diet and workouts.

  21. missy miller says:

    Well…can’t say I blame you for letting that little doll face get away with murder!

    One thing interesting that you may write about is hw you plan on raising your daughter in regards to food and body image.

    I often have a hard time juggling encouraging my niece to eat healthy without feeling I am ruining know? I want her to know there are healthy alternatives to pop tarts and donuts without leading her into thinking food is bad.


  22. LOL – I feel like I spend half of my day in the bathroom too b/c I try to drink tons of water. Some days I just feel like I should move my office to the restroom 😉 Love that you find more good than bad!

  23. Good: Had so much to do at work that the day flew.
    Bad: Had so much to do at work that I actually felt overwhelmed (which rarely happens!).

  24. I so agree with you about the “loving the cool air but hating getting out of bed in the AM!” That is me every morning!

  25. Lee says:

    M is very cute!

  26. Good: Cleaning today…all day
    Bad: Not finishing what I wanted to get done!

  27. maryann says:

    i like the blog…been checkin it out when i remember. i am currently taking a season off of my blogging. i see you are reading the Dragon Tattoo book…i walked around the pools at Vegas last week asking everyone reading it….”did you read Eat Pray Love?” (yes) “can you tell me why there are if-you-liked-this,you-will-like-this recommendations? they dont seem to be of a similar nature”
    6 out of 6 women agreed…they are really nothing alike and they arent sure why they are “linked” like that…but it seemed to be an enjoyable book for most of the 6. some were barely beginning.
    what is your take?

    • Tina says:

      Well, I have barely gotten into the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo yet…but from what I can tell they don’t seem too similar. I didn’t even realize people were grouping them together!

  28. Heather says:

    well, yesterday it was good that it was my birthday, bad that i found out my grandfather might pass away soon. let’s just say it was a rollercoaster!

    • Tina says:

      🙁 I am sending you a great big hug! And lots of prayer. I hate hearing that anything sad is going on right now in your life.
