Ok today was weigh in day emoticon emoticon and I knew what was coming! So I did not get upset emoticon emoticon I told myself if you do the crime you pay the time! emoticon m emoticon emoticon So the results are what I expected but I have to confess that this has been the best summer vacation and time I have had in a long, long, long time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So now I am back home, back at work and today when I walked into the gym the equipment and machines were happy to see me! emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon They were all wondering where I was hiding!

So yes I am back on the horse and ready to get serious again. I know it was so easy to put on the weight - emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon let's see if I can make it easy to take off or at least I will try my hardest!!! emoticon

Back Home and back to work!

Friday, July 25, 2014

Well reality is setting in! I am back home from my in-laws and what a week that was! I think I ate emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon my way to patience! So I know the scale will be terrible but I have to face the music! emoticon emoticon

My in-laws, I love them, but by the first day they have worn you down! They are like little bickering kids and no matter what you do it is wrong! The whole week was cleaning, taking them to appointments, grocery shopping, etc. Then to make matters worse we had constant rain the whole time! Oh! Well what can you do! I just offered it up as a sacrifice and then I ate, and ate, ate delicious Latin food. emoticon m emoticon

I was able to meet up with my sister that lives in the Fort Lauderdale area and we had one nice sister day together - so once again we ate and emoticon cause we had not seen each other all year!

So now I am on my way to work - setting up my new 2nd grade classroom before the start of school in 2 weeks. I hope to get myself back in the swing of my exercise and tracking so that I can get back on the right track! emoticon m emoticon emoticon

Today of all day is my sparversary and I had hoped to be at my goal weight emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon but I will take this as a new beginning! emoticon m emoticon

Now off to work! emoticon

Busy Week

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Well I have been pretty busy since I got back home - but I have to say I do feel so relax and I am so happy I took the time for me because I needed to recharge my battery! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have been spending time with mom at the nursing home because once I get back to work it gets harder and this has been so great! emoticon She still has a hard time remembering but I give her lots of love and she loves that!! emoticon emoticon

I have also been trying to get some work done around the house! emoticon emoticon Not fun but it needs to be done! So I am tackling one project at a time! I am also trying to get together some things for my oldest son that is getting into a new apartment in August so I am cleaning my kitchen cabinets to give him things he could use! Trying to cut down on expenses! emoticon emoticon My house is full of his things from the old apartment until move in day on August 1 - so I am ready for this to happen! emoticon

I am also trying to get in all my doctor appointments and just do things that need to be done! Sometimes it just surprises me to see how much stuff, paperwork, calls, etc. things we do everyday!

On Friday my DH and I will be going to Miami to do our monthly visit to the in-laws. This means that we will be cleaning, cooking, shopping, organizing and trying to entertain them for a few days! This is a little hard because the are so set in their ways that it is there way or no way! However, I do it with love and try to leave things in a better way then when I get there! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am also proud to report that I am faithfully hitting the gym everyday and work hard! Even thought I don't see any emoticon m emoticon emoticon results yet - I feel great!!!

I will not be able to do much exercise in Miami but I will try to at least walk and I won't have any internet access so I might not be able to log in but I will make up for it when I get back home!

    Sounds as if you are being quite productive! The time in Miami may be a little bit trying, but you'll be fine. I tend to think my neighbor is exactly correct when she says, of situations such as you describe: "Just offer it up and know you're earning jewels for your crown in heaven by doing good things for others - even when those "Others" don't seem to see it or appreciate it."

Some day we each may be old and cranky and then we can all hope we earned enough good will now to be treated kindly by others in spite of ourselves then.

    Hugs to you dear one! I am sending you love and light to take you to Miami. I only wonder why people have to be so MIL and SIL have had a gigantic grudge against me since day one...and I really have NO earthly reason why?

I can remember one time when DH and I broke up right before his birthday...his mother actually made an appearance at my place of work.... emoticon feigning she was there to tell me how much she'd miss me at his birthday party that a former girlfriend was throwing for him....WOW...I was taken SO by surprise over the horrific MEAN~NESS of that pettiness....I should have known she was capable of that when she showed me pics of DH from earlier times....previous girlfriends had their heads cut off and out of the pictures.... emoticon How could such a sweet man come from such a callous mother...I guess it was because his grandmother raised other reason can be's wishing you BIG luck and lots of love! emoticon emoticon

Back Home and 5% Challenge

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Well I am back home from California - a wonderful trip with my husband and we met up with some friends that took us to Sacramento, Carmel by the Sea, Monterey, etc. and wine country emoticon emoticon

My husband and I had not been on a trip with out kids in the last 22 years!! emoticon so this was really a treat for us. We celebrate our 24th anniversary and we just had a great time.

I was able to work out at the hotel while my husband worked the first week emoticon because it was partially work and then out time the second week. So I must say that althought I did gain 2.5lbs. my staying active really did help! emoticon

Because we tasted every type of food and something we don't do often we had cocktails emoticon emoticon and we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves.

So I am now back home and have to get back to reality emoticon but we will always have the memories and pictures.

Have my sons home this weekend because they missed emoticon us and it is nice to see them.

Will share some other things about this trip at a later date! Have to unpack and do lots of laundry!

    I totally LOVED Carmel...we went there as a little side trip to one of our big convention trips when we had the big construction biz. We immediately went to Hogsbreathe inn and I looked EVERYWHERE to spot Clint Eastwood...heard he owns (or did own it) back then. The little town was soooo mesmerizing and we loved it! Hope to go back one day! Monterey was awesome too...I loved the wines there. We weren't so much into wine during that visit...if we went there now I'd have a much better appreciation.

Rest up...get organized and then share all your awesome pics with us!

Hugs and can't wait to see your wonderful trip! emoticon emoticon

    There is nothing wrong with emoticon and emoticon on a vacation...everything n moderation and the occasional indulgence is good for us. And after 22 years I'd say you were due for an indulgence or 2!

Welcome back!
