Limited Too Tuesdays- Ways to Have a Great Summer

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

It's time for another edition of Limited Too Tuesdays, a post in which I look back through my old diaries to see what middle school me was up to. 


Today's selected entry is focused on how to have a great summer. 

Sunday April 8, 2001


#13. Stay Active... Did I write this list or did Michelle Obama? No wonder I weighed sixty pounds until I was fifteen. Look at what I was doing every day, just exercising all the time. I could play Olympics on the trampoline for literally hours. I would just jump and flip and twist and land the Kerri Strug one legged cartwheel all day long until I was so physically exhausted I couldn't move. But yet I would probably still fit in a thirty minute basketball workout and then jump on my scooter real quick to head to a friend's house. You know, just "staying active."

If memory serves, the summer of 2001 was the summer I had to dumpster dive at Burger King to find my retainer. Don't worry, I found it. And I went on to wear it for five more years until my dog ate it.

And just for the record I made Drill Team, I was also the captain until some of the moms tried to kick me off for making up a "questionable routine" to Britney's I'm a Slave For You. In hindsight perhaps 8th and 9th grade girls shouldn't have been dancing to that song after all. But the routine was so good, I still remember it to this day. 

And now I'm going to switch gears and tell you how you can win the easiest $500 of your life. 

Like I said , the prize is $500- via paypal, visa gift card, or target gift card.  The only requirement for you is to like a page (or many pages!) on Facebook.  The rafflecopter below makes it ridiculously easy to enter- you can like the facebook page directly through the rafflecopter.  Each page liked is a an entry into the giveaway.  This will literally take 30 seconds out of your day.  30 seconds for $500- I'd say that's a pretty high paying job!


Giveaway ends March 11, 2014.  All entries will be verified.  Giveaway open to international readers with a paypal account- visa or target gift cards will not be sent internationally.  Giveaway winner will be announced March 12, 2014.

  6. I played fifty billion sports growing up all through high school and ate any and everything and couldn't gain a pound no matter how hard I tried. Now I'm 30 wishing I would've kept up the habit of exercise, and I'm now trying to figure out how to be active again after 12 years of not working out. I tried zumba last week. I'm sold. Maybe it's because of the questionable moves that are somehow okay because it's "zumba?!"

  21. AWESOME giveaway! Thanks SO much for hosting! By the way, I'm pretty impressed that you share your diary entries! I always kept a diary growing up and I can tell you, it would be pretty embarrassing to share what I wrote. LOL I think every day there was a new crush... UGH! Anyway, I stopped writing and journaling when one day my brother and his friends read it and I didn't find out until I came to a page that one of the friends wrote me a note on. I was SO humiliated that to this day I am unable to write anything personal. Sad, really....
