So what . . .

Doing a new link-up today hosted by Shannon at Life After I "Dew" . . . I see this one a lot in the blog world and thought it would be fun to jump on board . . .
So What Wednesday
So what if I sucked at blogging this summer . . . kids, vacations, laziness . . . it happens.
 
So what if I set my alarm for 5:10 a.m. for boot camp, slept in my workout clothes so I'd be all ready to go when I got up, and then forgot to actually turn the alarm on . . . guess I needed that extra sleep.
 
So what if I purchased 9 new pairs of shoes in the last week . . . I was really only looking for a pair of brown wedges and the others accidentally happened. 
No worries Getzy, they didn't cost that much!  Love you!
So what if I purchased a pair of shoes purely based on this guy . . . 
I have a whole Petey inspired outfit planned . . . you don't plan outfits around your dog?  Weirdo.
So what if I need a pedicure so bad that I just keep re-applying polish over the scuffs . . . including the ones caused when the dog sat on my wet toenails. 
 
So what if I had to throw away a bunch of fresh vegetables that had rotted in the "crisper" which leads to . . .
 
So what if I haven't cooked proper meals lately . . . no one is starving.
 
So what if I sucked at every exercise challenge I've tried  . . . I just get so bored.
 
So what if I'd like to tell all my volunteer commitments to suck it right now.
 
So what if I think this very inappropriate picture is hilarious . . . courtesy of Valerie at Fabulous Chick Gets Fit.
And finally, so what if this challenge came way too easy . . . sometimes you just need to let it out! 

Anybody else need to just say, "So what?!?"

Have you missed me?

Insert music notes here for effect and maybe a dance move . . . Guess who's back?  Back again.  Amy's back.  Tell a friend! 

No seriously, spread the word.  Hit that follow button and let's be friends.  Me love you long time . . .

What up party people?  I've missed you.  True story.  It's been wwwaaayyy too long.  Where have I been?  In computer hell!

OMFGosh!  Yes, I will drop an F bomb, but I try really hard not to take the Lord's name in vain . . . if I were going to do it though, it would have been in the last two weeks. 

I need to have this made into a t-shirt for a friend . . . we affectionately call her the F-bomber!
Why you ask?  Because I returned that beotch of an HP laptop and ordered a new one . . . and it only took TEN, yes 10, days for that darn thing to arrive.  Really?

I have learned that there is shame in owning a Hewlett Packard computer . . . from the Geek Squad and apparently anyone else who knows anything about computers.  After asking about a million geeks . . . yes, that's the title they prefer, I checked . . . ASUS or Lenovo laptops are what you should purchase.  You're welcome for that tip! 

Since my last desktop computer was an ASUS and ran like a champ for like 7 years, I went with an ASUS laptop.  Why didn't I do that in the first place?  Beats the crap outta me.  Dumb.
Hello lover . . . where have you been all my life?
And yes, while Windows 8 is still junk, I've realized now that a lot of the issues were with the HP . . . it just didn't run correctly and was basically a lemon.  Good riddance.

So after an unplanned hiatus, I'm back.  And I suppose I could have tried blogging from my phone or iPad but let's face it, I'm much too lazy for that!

I've missed documenting what goes on in the life of Getz, just like I've missed working out and eating healthy.  Summer was fun, but it's back to bidniz. 

The kids are off to school, I've started back with my 5:30 a.m. boot camp and joined a gym . . . look out folks, shit's about to get real!
No clue what this means . . . I just love an equation!

Running for Maggie

Well hi there . . . long time, no blog.  Meh, life happens.  
 Simply Sami 
Quick post to shout out Sami, an amazing girl who blogs over at Simply Sami . . . In March of 2012, Sami's 16 year old sister Maggie died in a tragic car accident. This past March, a foundation was started in honor of Maggie . . . The Maggie Bertram Foundation For The Fine Arts.  Sami recently hosted a virtual 5K to raise money for the foundation as a tribute to her sister. 
 
This event really touched my heart.  I lost a brother in a tragic car accident.  He was 19, and I was 17 . . . we were 21 months apart.  It's been a long time . . . May of 1991 to be exact, but Richard is never far from my thoughts.  That's a post for another day . . .

I ran my 5K on Sunday in memory of Maggie.  And by ran, I mean jogged . . . and walked.  I haven't laced up the running shoes lately for anything other than a brisk walk and guess what?  You use it or lose it.  Sucks. 

At first I took off like the wind . . . I had a great stride and a pretty good pace.  In my head I knew it wasn't going to last, but it sure felt good.  And then . . . about 2-1/2 miles in it felt like my feet had turned to concrete blocks.  I checked, they didn't.  But it sure felt that way. 

Life lesson.  Don't take the summer off from exercising because starting over ain't easy.  But I'm back . . . and it's on!
