So yesterday, I went clothes shopping. Something that I absolutely dispise! I needed something to wear to the Employee Appreciation Party that my company was throwing last night. I went into the store and picked out a pair of jeans (size 16) and wanted to try them on, more so to see if that whole losing a jean size, was really true, or I just happened to be able to fit in that pair of jeans I had by fluke. Reality check, I guess you could say. I tried on this pair of jeans, and THEY FIT!!!! I WAS STOKED!!!! I haven't been a size 16 in 8 years. Good Lord! I thought I was going to have a stroke right in the dressing room!
I had a blast at my party, and boy does it make you feel good to be told by not only your children and hubby that you look hot, but by some of my co-workers. What a great feeling! Those people at work usually see me in a not-so-dressed up state. It was fun to dress up! I did great at the party, as far as grazing ( a few cubes of cheese, and 4 bbq wings ), however, when we left there at 11pm, I was starving. Now mind you, I could've picked something terrible from Wendy's, but I had a Spicy Chicken Sandwich, and a garden side salad, with light ranch. Probably not the BEST thing I could've ate, but I think that I could've did way worse!
Taking it easy today, getting laundry caught up and gearing up for another snow front to pass through. Looks like a crock pot meal day to me! :) Have a fantastic Sunday, all!

Today was AWESOME! Not only did my kiddos go back to school, but I got a little bit of sleep, and then coaxed myself to get into town and go to the Y. I did 1 whole hour (intervals) on the elliptical! Wow! I am working my way up! I felt so good. I stretched and felt really energized! I have to gear myself up for going into work tonight..., because I don't work on Fridays! Thanks, snow days! NOT! They totally messed up our schedule at work!
Working out with my nephew's girlfriend, Alicia, tomorrow! Should be a great workout! :) Looking forward to it. I got my Skechers yesterday (because the weather caused delays), so I get to do my breaking in tomorrow! Yeah, Baby!
Have a great Friday night! Get moving, to stay moving.

Well, I finally made it back to the gym (I've had 2 sick kids at home), and let me tell you..., i FEEL GREAT, AGAIN!!! I was starting to lose my mind not leaving the house (I haven't had to work since Monday), and was not wanting to get off of track. Today, I went to the Y at 6am(just cause I knew my kids were going to be home.., again!) and did 45 minutes on the elliptical at full throttle. Wow! What a difference!
The girls are feeling better, and knock on wood, my son, hubby, and I have not gotten this nasty stuff. We shall see if the kids are out of school again tomorrow. I think that they are ready to go back. We are going to get some valentine stuff so that they can work on that to stay busy!
Tonight will be a regular night for me..., work and then hitting the gym. I will have to go now on Saturday, so that I can get my 4 days of working out for the week, but that doesn't bother me!
Have a fantastic day, everyone! Get moving!!! :)

So, I was going to make workout this morning, however it wasn't the snow that stopped me, it was the fact that my oldest woke up this morning throwing up! Good Lord!! I didn't figure on having a snow day with 2 sick kiddos! Fevers, and just plain not feeling well! I guess it still is winter..., huh??!
Kinda ate crappy today. Not a whole lot, just not the best of choices. I have tried not to over do it, but with not being able to really leave the house, well... I'm sure you all know how difficult it is to get yourself moving..., in any direction! I am bound and determined to make my way to the Y in the morning(if not, at least do my workout here at home in the a.m.), so that I can be on top of things with having the kiddos at home today. I didn't have to work last night, so I have no excuses of not getting the proper sleep!
Hope all of you drive safe if you have to get out into the elements. Wish you warmth, and some good ole fashioned "comfort" food (From the SP recipes, of course)! Have a Sparktabulous day!

Wow, not only did I have a sick kiddo at home with me yesterday (hence the reason I did not blog, and I do everyday), now I am going to have all three of them home! Go figure! :) lol
I did well yesterday..., at weigh-in this morning I had lost 1lb...that is a 3.6lbs loss for the month! Got in my circuit course and elliptical for 30 minutes. I felt better starting out the day with having a kid at home. Took her to the dr. and she has the good ole fashioned flu bug. Yuck! Slow cooked some ribs yesterday (yum-o!), and just worked on my laundry all day. Have about 3 more loads to go! Where does it all come from??!!!
Getting my wonderful Skechers today, unless of course, the weather effects that too...! So excited! Now I will have to break them in! I hope we get a huge dumping of snow! I am kinda looking forward to it!
Hope you drive safe today, and stay sparkivated!!!! :)
