Living Life Update ~ Lets Go #totheedge
So what has been going on in your world? Mine has been super BUSY!! The kids are out of school so that means less time I have to ‘work’ behind the computer. Don’t get me wrong, I have time, it is just interrupted every thirty minutes or so with a question or request of some kind. Also, of course I want to spend more time with them.
What I’m Doing NOT to Live Behind the Computer Keyboard
If you read my first post NO MORE LIVING LIFE BEHIND THE COMPUTER KEYBOARD, this is my follow up.
I am pushing myself to live life to the edge of my comfort zone. No more hiding behind my computer watching everyone else’s fun lives. @SharpMobileUSA has been gracious enough to sponsor this post to promote their new #ToTheEdge Campaign. This campaign features how life looks best from the edge. Just as I want to live it!!
The AQUOS Crystal’s Edgeless screen is for people who want big 5-inch screen but not a big footprint. This is the one for you. And the best part is enjoying the unique futurist design. Check it out! All of you are seeing a preview to my almost finished table.
Whether your edge is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro or wearing white on spaghetti night, it’s part of what defines your unique life experiences. Search hashtags #totheedge and #AQUOSCrystal on Instagram, Facebook. Vine, or Twitter to see all the fun To The Edge moments. Make sure to follow @AQUOSTOTHEEDGE on Instagram. Post your own #totheedge #AQUOSCrystal photo and if they like it they may feature you!
Let’s see if I can make it through dinner at a Cajun restaurant in a white shirt haha 🙂 #totheedge #aquoscrystal A photo posted by Tina (@tinabranch) on
Lets talk workouts. Hmmm…..well THEY ARE HARD! Oh my, this boot camp is kicking my butt! Really, I honestly did not think it was going to be this hard. Watching the videos online everyone looks like they are having fun, smiling, no sweat to be seen. HA! The joke was on me. They are not messing around. I look like someone threw a glass of hot water on me after class. Hehe you see I made this image black and white….
Bootcamp workout #3 DONE! #totheedge #AQUOSCrystal

Which I guess that means it is working, but wow. Just wow! Have I lost any weight NO 🙁 but, I do feel more fit and feel like I have more control over my body. I think it has also given me more energy. Which leads to my new project in my home I have started…..
I have decided my house needs to be updated. Now, I don’t want to spend a ton of money doing updates. 1. Because I don’t have a ton of money. 2. Because I like what I have, it just need to be cleaned, fixed, or decorated. First project is my husband’s grandmother’s kitchen table. It is a good table but needs to be stripped and refurbished. I have started stripping the varnish off and will write a full blog post for all of you to see my finished project. It is almost done….did you see the image above? The sides have been rubbed over the years from table covers being used.
And lastly this month, I have decided to share with all of you more of my behind the scenes happenings of what is going on and coming up on Instagram. Follow me if you want to see. Right now I am trying out tanning lotions, hehe lets see how orange or streaky I look!
Jenna Austin says

Awe…thank you 🙂
rachel cartucci says
It’s really good to get out and be involved in the real world. Ya really are happier away from the computer…trust me…I know. That is a very nice large table….can’t wait to see what ya do to it!
Sue M. says
That’s a very nice looking table, I look forward to seeing how it looks after you’ve finished working on it!
kim amundsen says
Love to see the table when its done.
Sure it’s a huge table!
Karen Glatt says
What a nice big large table. I have one almost like it. You posted really nice pictures of yourself, and I like looking at posts on Instagram! I will have to check out your posts.
It is way too easy to spend too much time on the computer. I myself do. I should be cleaning right now!
Kristin Knudsen says
I love the pictures that your phone takes!!! Not a lot of pixels to be seen! I guess, I am somewhere in the middle. I can be “living on the edge” during some things….but, furthest back from the edge for others!
Can’t wait to see the finished product.. Thanks for posting.
Kortney Picker says
I love this, it is important to make your life be the way you want it to be! Instead of complaining about it, make it into what you want!
Pamela Gurganus says
I really enjoyed reading this post! I need to go to the edge more often! I get so wrapped up in routine and schedules and just in life in general that I sometimes forget to just let go and do something different, etc. Thanks for sharing!
Jennifer P says
Wonderful ideas and helps motivate me to get back to a real life again more so than what I have been doing to push myself back out there.
laurie damrose says
I have helped my mom with projects like that,can not wait to see it.
Felita Daniels says
I too have the same trouble with white shirts! Love your post. The table project (if it’s anything like my projects), will take a little longer than you anticipate. However, you will love the finished project and being able to say “I did this!”
Sarah L says
Tanning lotions? Not for me. I’ll take pasty white.
I would love to see that table when you are done with it.
Cannot wait to see the finished product !!
Carol L says
Great post. I love stripping furniture and making it over. Look forward to the finiahed product with that great table.
Maria Luan Hechanova says
It’s so nice to try it..
Ashley C says
I actually had this realization a couple of days ago, that I keep waiting for the right time to do things.. or we always say “we should do that sometime”, but life is quickly passing by and sometime may never come. Living life to the fullest and on the edge is something everyone should be doing every day!
Danette DW says
Refinishing your table is pretty ambitious. Mine just needs to be replaced along with the broken chairs.
Mary Songer says
Your post reminded me to have goals and projects that don’t involve my computer. I’m going to finally start reorganizing my closets and get rid of some of the clutter. Also I need to do some exercise on a regular basis. Thanks for the inspiration.
Elena Vo says
That’s so exciting! Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Also, about to follow you on instagram!
I love seeing creative before and afters. I so lack in that department
Rita Corey says
I love the table, it is beautiful. You’ve got quite a project since it is so big.
Sherry Compton says
Good for you on the workout and updates. I’m glad you are feeling more fit and healthy. Muscle weighs more than fat any way so I’m sure you are toning and doing well.
Debbie Welchert says
I enjoyed your post very much. I can’t wait to see your finished kitchen table. What a job this will be.
Sonya Cocherell says
I dearly hate posting pictures of myself. You look super!
Sandra Watts says
I have been committed to getting out of the house more. I have been walking every day and doing more activities with my family.
Kim Hampton says
Awesome post! Don’t be discouraged about not losing weight. You are building muscle, which weighs more than fat so you may not notice any weight loss. Try measuring yourself in inches and I bet you’ll see a big difference.
Laurie P says
I’ve given myself time limits behind the screen….so far it’s working, consistency is key!!!!!!
Good on ya for working on a table. I absolutely love giving new life to furniture of all kinds!
Deborah Caudill says
I was living so close to the edge that I fell off and broke my leg in 7 places,so after surgery and over a month in the hospital. I went home and fell again and broke my hip. I now have a hip replacement. Physical therapy has been brutal, so I feel what you are going thru starting to exercise again. Don’t worry about losing weight because muscle weighs more than fat, but muscle is much better distributed. You look great to me! If you had someone take your photos with the phone you reviewed, then the phone has a great camera.
Kristin K says
Wow! You sure have a lot going on right now! I also find myself trapped behind the computer every day! But, for me, I don’t mind so much. I live alone, so I have a lot of time to spend browsing the internet!
i like your instagram posts!
Sarah L says
I live my life to the edge by doing new things.
your photos are amazing and the camera on device is amazing. it shows clear and sharp photos. thanks for sharing the post
Wow that phone tho
