Fighting it...

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Well, it seems that I am now fighting a Bladder infection, which is making my lower back hurt, and all the lovely symptoms that come with it! Funny, I take cranberrry supplements EVERYDAY, so you would think that this wouldn't be possible. Just the luck of the draw, I guess! emoticon

Took my kiddos bowling yesterday, and we had a great time. I have enjoyed them being at home, although I am ready to get back to normal scheduling. I didn't sleep at all yesterday, till my hubby got home at 8pm, so I was running on pure adrenaline. Ate kinda yucky, but now know that I will make better choices today, so not dwelling on it. Plan on getting my workout in, if I am feeling up to it. Been fighting bouts of nausea, so we shall see. Weighed in yesterday, and was exactly what I was last Monday, so I guess I will be happy with the fact that I didn't gain! emoticon

On a fun note, my kiddos borrowed "Just Dance, for Kids" for the Wii and oh my goodness, we (even my hubby) had a blast playing that on Sunday! Good Lord you get a workout! I was sweating my a** off!! It really tests your coordination and your ability to follow the movements they are doing. My husband has not a lick of "rhythm", when it comes to dancing, but he was even whooping me! :) emoticon hahahahah

Have a fantastic day! It's supposed to beautiful here in Wichita, so maybe I will do that 'walking the dog' thing ! He will agree, it's nice to get out and take advantage of it, also! emoticon

    Sorry to hear about your bladder infection! I hope it clears up quickly!

Sounds like a fun game! Plus I bet it was nice to have the whole family involved!

    Dancing is a great fun way to exercise-laughing at yourself burns extra calories! emoticon

    I remember when my kids were home on holidays. I loved it! I was the same as you though, loved it, but glad they left. Keep up the good attitude. So what if you stayed the same on the scale as last week. Take measurements, I bet you lost inches! Drink lots of water today and enjoy the weather. This time of year it can go from yucky to awesome in just a few hours. Have a great day! You are doing wonderful!

It was a good weekend!

Sunday, February 20, 2011

I got to workout on Saturday for an hour, so that was great! Took my girls to see Gnomeo and Juliet at the movies yesterday evening, and all I had was a big ole bottle of water! No sweets, no popcorn! Pretty proud of myself on that one! emoticon

Measured myself yesterday, and I have lost anywhere from .5 to 1 inch in all locations, so I was absolutely thrilled that I am losing somewhere! The scale doesn't seem to be budging, so I am trying not to let that make me lose my focus. The scale isn't everything!

All in all, a very "uneventful" weekend. Took the dog for a walk, and cleaned the backyard of well, everything that "he" has left behind since December. Hard to pick that stuff up with almost 2 foot of snow on the ground, but I took advantage of the beautiful weather we are having! Feeling good about the fact that I got some things accomplished. Hope you all have a beautiful Sunday! Tomorrow, it's back to the grind!

    Sounds so much like me on warm days. Would be nice if the dog could clean up after themselves. If you are losing inches but not weight you are gaining muscle . The weight will come off too. Do not be to worried. emoticon

Been finally feeling awesome!

Whatever the heck was going on with me at the beginning of the week, is gone! Yeah!! I am feeling soooo much better! emoticon

I had a date with my elliptical and one of my girlfriends at the gym, yesterday. I pushed myself really hard and when I was done, jello was my nickname! emoticon I did a full hour on the "variety" level of my workout. That means it's like you are running in some serious peaks and valleys! WOW! I was burning!!! My rear end felt like it was going to take off without me! emoticon I noticed that in the evenings though, I am ready to go to bed, and I sleep so wonderfully! Not a care in the world! I got 3 hours before I went to work last night and felt phenomenal! Yeah, me!!! Going to try and make it for the double circuit this morning...if work permits!

My kiddos are home today and Monday, so we are going to be doing the park, bike riding, and maybe some trails. Gotta get out and move. I'm just happy that for the 1st time in 3 weeks, I don't have to work my Friday! emoticon Maybe our weekend will consist of getting outdoors and doing a picnic, or going to the zoo. Whatever it will be, it will be great!

Have a fantastic, fabulous, and fit Friday! Say that 3 times in a row quickly! emoticon

What a fantastic day! :)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Valentine's Day was super! First of all, I made it to the gym yesterday at 5:30 for my "double" circuit course! I thought I would've been dying by the time I had gotten half way through the 2nd one, but I pushed myself! I was on cloud 9! There were only 2 of us that did the double.

So, when I left there, I had to run around and get some things to bake all day for my kids' valentine's parties at school. I arranged a huge bouquet of flowers to take to my mom, and then proceeded to bake Brownie Pops for my middle daughter's class. I chewed gum while doing this, so I wasn't sampling! emoticon

About 2pm I was kinda starting to drag a bit...hadn't been to bed yet, even for a nap. I left and took the kids' stuff up to their school and my mom her flowers. I love the look you get from someone you love after you brighten their day! I picked my kids up from school and when I got home, I had 2 dozen beautiful multi-colored roses with a bear and a small box of chocolates delivered to me from my hubby! I can't tell you how long it's been since I got roses, but they were BEAUTIFUL! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon> emoticon

I was so excited! Within an hour of that excitement, a wonderful full blown migraine set in. Ugh! I was sick to my stomach, seeing stars and could not get comfortable. Not the way I had chosen to spend the rest of my evening with my Valentines. emoticon My hubby ended up taking care of the kiddos, while I found a dark place in the house.

All in all, it was mostly a great day!!! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday, the possibilities are endless! emoticon

    Chewing gum - that's a good trick! I'll have to try that!

I have been EXTREMELY tired. I slept darn near all day on Saturday (I had to work Friday night), which I absolutely hate doing, because then my weekend is wasted! I had planned on going to the gym on Sunday, but my son was with me, and my hubby and girls were gone. I worked out a lot going up and down the stairs doing laundry! lol

I really listened to my body and slept more than usual this weekend. I was beginning to wonder if I was coming down with something, but I am feeling better today. Got my workout clothes and my plan is to do a "double" circuit course. I hope that I make it to the 1st one, so I can get both in. We shall see how good my guys at work treat me. lol The first class starts at 5:30, and they go back to back. Wish me luck! I will let you all know!

Have a VERY HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Love the one your with! Have a fantastic, NON-overindulging day! emoticon emoticon
