Tough It Out Tuesday - The Tax Deadline Edition

Let's cut right to the chase today. I have scheduled myself 20 minutes to get this blog post written and ready to post. So, this could get ugly. You've been warned.

First of all, it is Tough It Out Tuesday.. and THAT is the only reason I showed up to Bloglandia today.

The "rules" are simple -
1. On Tuesdays write a post about anything fitness, weight loss, healthy living, etc. etc. and link up with Allie and I.
2. This isn't strict or heavily structured. Allie and I really just wanted a mutual place to motivate each other and everyone else who drops by!
3. The main, big, huge purpose of this link up is to motivate and encourage others. I would really love it if you'd take the time to click around the links listed below and give some words of encouragement to everyone else. Maybe even let them know that they aren't alone in their journey. Sometimes that's all someone needs.

The Best Of Intentions

For those of you who don't know or haven't figure it out yet, I work in college athletics and I also work in a CPA office. We deal with taxes and accounting. Today is April 15th. If you don't know what that means, well I'm sorry, but I don't have the energy or the time to explain it to you. I've already used 3 of my 20 minutes. Basically I've been at work nonstop since last Monday.

Which brings me to TIOT.
I'm so glad that Allie suggested naming our linkup Tough It Out, because holy hell I feel like I've been hit by a truck and I'm running on pure caffeine and will power at this point. #toughingitout
I'm not actually trying to complain or get "awe, I'm so sorry" comments. I'm just telling it like it is and right now I'm exhausted and running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Which is actually pretty comical when you think about it. Or maybe I'm just delirious from lack of sleep and everything is hysterical at this point.

14 minutes.

Okay, instead of being annoying, which I already have been up to this point so hopefully you're still with me, I'm going to just cut to the chase..

How's my fitness going?
Well, I've taken several walks.
I ran twice.
I did Jillian once.
... In 10 days.

How's my healthy eating going?
Well, it could be worse. Could be a hell of a lot better, but it could also be worse.
The funny thing about this is that I'm at the stage where I'm starting to crave the healthy stuff and I'm getting sick of the bad stuff quickly. I like this stage. I did have some brownie cookies yesterday though and HOLY CANNOLI they were amazing.

Plan for the week?
My plan for the week is to get back to "normal". I'm actually sort of glad I've had this weird and busy (ew that word annoys me) time lately because it's definitely going to be a good kicking off point to getting back on track. I'm borderline ecstatic to get back to this healthy lifestyle and I think the mental aspect of losing weight and working is one of the most important parts.

6 minutes.

In conclusion, I have big plans for the rest of this week and next week that will carry us through to May, where even more big things are going to happen. Big bloggy plans and big fitness plans. Look the F out.

And I'm done with 2 minutes to spare. #winning #imatool


  1. Yikes! I feel bad for the people working in CPA offices this time of year! I always do my taxes AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because it stresses me out to think of waiting till the last minute!

    I hope that after today that your week starts to slow down a bit and becomes less stressful!

  2. I'm excited to hear your big bloggy and big fitness plans that are coming up once you get past this busy time at work! That can add a lot of stress which makes it hard to follow through on health / fitness goals. Have fun getting back on course!

    Quite impressed you finished the post in 20 minutes as well!

  6. Snicklefritz, You are doing great despite the craziness going on. It's almost over. You're almost there. You got this! *high five*

  7. Even though you've mentioned it and I've realized both "independently" of one another...I never put two and two together that you work two different places. Hashtag I'm an idiot. Hooray for Tax Day being almost over!
