Striving to Live a Life of Adventure, Excellence, and Faith.

I'm Going Shoot'n!

 There is one thing I have NEVER done in my life, and honestly saying, I am not sure if I ever thought I would do it.  However, when our marketing team at work decided we need to have a "Team Building Day," I blurted out that we should go shoot something.  I was thinking clays or skeet; however, that transpired into shooting real guns at a Shooting Range.  Oh My!

You see.........I have NEVER shot a gun.  Actually, I have never held a gun.  I can honestly say that I am a little nervous and really excited in the same thought.  Ha!!  So....Friday afternoon, my entire team has decided to head to the shooting range for a fun afternoon of "shooting."  And, my entire team has decided that I should be placed in a different area of the range from them, and I can't really blame them.  Ha!!  I think we will have a lot of fun, and I am excited to spend the afternoon with the group. 

In other updates for the week, I have successful got up and moving at 5:00 a.m. three times this week.  I have been doing 50 minutes of cardio and another 15 minutes of strength moves.  I am hoping to build back up my endurance and muscles, and I still working to drop 30 pounds by January 1.  The one time of day I am struggling is after 5:00 p.m.  I am usually sooooo hungry from the day, that I just want to come home and eat stuff that is bad for me.  I crave soda, twizzlers, and cards.  BAD, I know! So, my focus for the next few weeks will be 5:00 p.m.  till bedtime, and really evaluating what I am eating and making better selections.

In fun news, I'm linking up with one of my FAVORITES "Fill in the Blank Friday" for a fun way to end the week.  

1.   Nothing says fall like      crisp fall mornings and tree colors peaking. 

2.   My favorite autumnal tradition is   football.  Lets go Vols!!

3.  My favorite fall treat is   pumpkin pie!!  Yum! 

4. Fall makes me think of    family   because    all the fun and family-field holidays are right around the corner.  

5.  Autumn free form word association, go!    crunchy leaves, cool crisp air, sunshine, changing colors. (loved these) and, I'll add a couple Starbucks and Football. 

6.  My go-to outfit in the fall is     a cardigan.........wait, a minute......I wear those ALL year long. 

7.  My favorite fall holiday is (Halloween or Thanksgiving)    Thanksgiving. I love my family, and don't get to see them often enough.  The holidays are so special to me, and I am looking forward to another great Holiday Season.  

Have a great weekend!!

I've always wanted to go shooting! ...I am slightly terrified of doing something stupid with a gun though. Those things aren't very forgiving. :)
