It's Okay to Laugh

For those who don't know and/or who care, I've been super stressed and so uptight lately. Hard to believe, right? No, seriously...ask Johnny, or my Mom they will gladly vouch for me.

Any who...I decided to go to spinning today. I thought that on my day off I would try and be positive, and take a day to myself..personal health day, if you would.

Believe me when I tell you, it took everything I had to walk through the doors to the gym. Let me tell you, spinning was quite the struggle. However, once the music started to play my attitude changed a bit. I couldn't help but laugh at the other women. I know that's mean. As a former member of the "judgement free zone," or Planet Fitness, I knew for sure that everyone else does the same thing. Everyone judges, its the truth and I'm speaking it.

The only thing different at my new gym (which by the way I love) is that I was laughing WITH the other women, not exactly laughing at them. They were soooo energetic and wild. I was sure that I had missed the free mimosas that they had to of been handing out prior to class. If not, then I would like to patent that idea. Mimosas and bloody marys would entice me to come to the gym...just saying.

These women were waving their towels and screaming, which made me laugh. Sometimes, we get so wrapped into our busy lives, we forget to laugh!!!

So besides spinning with drunk ladies (I wish) here are a few other things I found on Pinterest that made me smile...

And the Giants Win!

Okay, so I just wanted to clear the air.

I am an Indianapolis Colts fan, or at least I think I am. I was/am a really big Peyton Manning fan, buttt he didn't play this season, so what's a girl to do? I will tell you what she should do...go after the younger brother, Eli.

And, that my friends... is what I did! I rooted for the New York Giants, I am a New Yorker, a Yankees fan, it just made sense. Thanks to my interest in the Manning family, and my extra support...the New York Giants can thank me for their super bowl victory.

You're welcome!

Talent Shmalent

In college at the start of a new semester in every class, the professor would start the class off in the most awkward, most embarrassing way. "Please introduce yourself, and tell the class one interesting fact about yourself." Ummm... no thanks, I rather pass. That isn't what I said obviously, but if I wasn't such a wimp..I totally would have.

As the class would share their really cool facts, I would be sweating and stressing out about what I would say. Maybe, the rest of my classmates facts weren't really that cool, but I wasn't paying attention. I was scampering through my years of existence searching for a fun fact about myself.

The same thing comes to mind when I watch pageants, or interviews. How is everyone else so much cooler than ME!?!? Just recently I was teasing my brother because he signed up for a pageant/talent show, Mr Rensselaer. I know what you're thinking. Where's Rensselaer? and... What is Mr Rensselaer? For myself, my biggest question was "What is Tyler's talent going to be?"  The talent is still a mystery. I will have to find out with the rest of the nation  1000s of people  all of Rensselaer 50 other people who will be attending this Saturday.

I am guessing it will be baton twirling, or singing, maybe lip singing, or a cheer, like everyone else's "talent." I mean, come on people. Let's make things interesting. Step outside of the box for cripes sake.

Have you ever seen Little Miss Sunshine? It is the best movie. The little girl, Olive Hoover (great name) wants to compete in a beauty pageant. However, they miss the boat on the concept of what a pageant actually is. Her talent act on the other hand, perfection!
