I am such a laundry screw up. See this timer? I need the clothes in this washer on my body in 11 minutes.

NSFW: Will Smith, Miley Cyrus, Robing Thicke and the VMA's Make People Want to Sing Chicken Butt That's What!!
My friends? I am dwelling on the positives of late:
|Source: GASP! Next time, we might want to leave the kiddos at home, Will?|
While I agree the train wreck of Miley Cyrus twerking on a man who could be her father, wildly lolling her tongue like my golden retriever, while he sings a "rapey" song based on it's pretty degrading video and grinding on foam fingers is desperately sad, I much prefer to draw attention to Will Smith and his wife Jada raising up their kids sheltered enough to be horrified with what they were seeing on-stage and recognizing it for the train wreck it was.
Although next time, we might want to leave the kiddos at home, Will?
That said, now tell me friends how do I spin a positive for my teens who showed me the "Miley Cyrus has a chicken butt" pic that was plastered all over their FB and instagram walls from friends?
|Source: Chicken butt that's what?? Nooooo Miley Cyrus, |
national TV is not time for chicken pot pie and I don't care antics!!
As the theme of the night (and Robin Thicke's song goes) was she asking for this ridicule? And where the heck were her parents to yank her chicken butt off the stage!!
As for Robin Thicke? Don't get me started. They played parts of his song at my daughter's USA Swim Western Zone competition two weeks ago and my jaw dropped!
Have no idea what I am talking about? Need more info, make sure your kiddos are completely out of the room and then check these videos out.
Watch the full video MILEY CYRUS & Robin Thicke VMA video:
2013 VMA, Artists.MTV, Music, Miley Cyrus
Watch the full UNRATED Robin Thicke Blurred Lines video (Seriously NSFW):

Arrr Update: Just found out the Will Smith picture was NOT in reaction to Miley. Dang there goes my positives for the VMA's. I'm fresh out of ideas...

I then scribbled my way through forms printed on a printer that needed ink weeks ago and checked off checklists galore.
Minutes before leaving for school business days, we started a search for a shirt. Any shirt for school pictures, but preferably one that hadn't been used in previous portraits...at least not with this kid's portraits. Score!
There once was a time where picture day required a meticulous week long shopping search for a complete ensemble. Now reasonably clean and maybe a quick press will do. Sigh...
We ran to the car and barreled off only to find a packed parking lot. Double sigh...
We parked in a somewhat questionable zone and hurried to the school entrance when...
Yes, I felt a warm crawling down my thigh.
My eyes bulged.
I felt a brush along my calve.
I shriek. I flailed my leg--sure a critter had gotten into my pants.
MY PANTIES FLEW OUT THE LEG HOLE.
It seems I missed a clean pair when I was doing laundry and they had been folded into my pants only to slide out at the very most embarrassing point possible.
Red-faced, I grabbed my panties now at the concrete entry to the school. Yes, people, middle school! You know--the source of endless embarrassment and awkwardness back in the day.
And now? I've continued the tradition. Now? A source of endless embarrassment and awkwardness for my 6th grader who watched his mother stuff her panties into her purse.
Yep, bad mother of the year moment! Silly moms who can't get their underwear in their capris. Gah!

My goals currently are feeling fit, feeling good, fitting into smaller sizes and being strong.
How do I hope to achieve these goals? Telling you all what they are so you keep me accountable, pretty please?
My fantabulous goals:
- I will finish 100 day burpee challenge (day #20 and going strong)
- I will go back to STRICT paleo for a 30 day challenge re-set in September
- I will continue moderate paleo after Sept, but allow myself treats
- I will go to no fewer than seven crossfit wods a week
- I want to deadlift 275# by Christmas (currently 235#) Help me, Santa!
- I will move my butt 10,000 steps a day (Thank you Fitbit from #attseattle)
- I want to clean 145# by Christmas (currently 130#)
- I will get 8 hours rest per night (currently 5-6 at best)
- I will drink more water and take my vitamins like a good girl
- I will get to crossfit early to truly stretch and avoid injury
- I will stay late at crossfit and always add some dessert like abmats
- I will start doing yoga again at least twice a week!!
You will notice I couldn't care less about how many pounds I weigh.
Could. Not. Care. Less.
I may occasionally weigh myself, but as we all know muscle weighs more than fat. The scale lies, but the mirror and jeans do not.
How do I know this? An awesome crossfitter called me the incredible shrinking Heather today. This was after I beat myself up standing on my scale this morning.
She saw what I could not when stuck looking down at the scale...progress!
I knew this. I know this. Yet it is still easy to let bad habits sneak back into my life. A lifetime of dieting and scale watching is hard to break.
We all need to look forward and up, my friends. Never down. Never back.
Sooo my friends, what are your 3 month goals? Let me know. I'd love to support you in your goals. The first step is to say them aloud. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell the world.

This li'l guy just took a wrong turn into our house. The boys thought they would squish him and burn him with fire.
