GTL.... Not Quite

What it do everyone? Hope all is well with you and yours. Decided to do a little update on this hot and steamy day. First off, I want to shout out two fellow educators/ bloggers:

1. Vanessa Schrotenboer... I love this feisty chick. I worked with her in my first year at the Creek and she is an amazing photographer. She has a fantastic blog full of life experiences, photos that she has taken and photos of her dog Leo, who's gonna end up missing one day... (just kidding...LOL). If you're looking for someone to do your engagement or wedding photos in the Charlotte area, I definitely recommend her.

2. Kara Hill-Kara is just as amazing as Vanessa. I also work with Kara at the Creek and she has just started her blog. Very dedicated to female readers who are into fashion and creativity, but I check it for the recipes! I will be using those throughout the school year!

Check those ladies out. I'm sure you'll find some interesting information, tips and things to make you laugh! Keep it going friends!


So I woke up this morning with a burst of energy and decided to get my GTL on. I can do the G (gym) and the L (laundry), but not the T (tan... Black people don't tan. We just get dark and I'm dark enough...LOL). I jumped up, ate a bowl of cereal, and headed to the gym on my complex.

I walked in... and was like, Nope. Not here. Ain't got time. The gym at my complex is very mediocre. There is basically nothing in there. I did a little arm workout to start off, but as for the cardio option... negative. After that temporary workout, I decided to do something I haven't done since high school-- run.

Yup, I said it. Run. So... I stretched well. Prayed that my knees didn't bother me with the metal plates in them. Found the right songs on the iPod, and took off. I knew I was out of shape since I haven't been playing volleyball like I used to at UNC Charlotte, but I shocked myself. I actually did pretty well.. Go me. :)

I'm going back to the actual gym at 12:45 with a friend to finish my work out, a little gorcery shopping, and getting ready for Alive After 5 in uptown Charlotte.

Until then...
