Much better!

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Today I did NMTZ and followed that up with 20 minutes of yoga in an effort to prevent DOMS from kicking my butt again. I learned my lesson last week: Cool downs are IMPORTANT!

Still tackling my 100 day challenge goals. I've managed to stretch and do devotions every day so far, and I'm at least getting some water in, even if it isn't 8 glasses every day. So I'm still struggling with water but I am at least drinking more than I used to and I notice a big difference in how I feel.

Now to get some protein in me with dinner. Yum!

Post workout pain

Thursday, December 06, 2012

...I'm feeling it! Jillian Michaels did a number on my buns and thighs yesterday. While I LOVE her workouts, I've decided her cool down session isn't near long enough. So I'm going to have to do more than what she does.

Day 5 of the 100 day challenge: Did devo, stretching, and 6 out of 8 glasses of water in yesterday. I'm really gonna push to get the full 8 glasses in today.

My son seems to finally be on the mend from the stomach virus he has been fighting for nearly 2 weeks. Poor kiddo has been miserable for a while. I'm glad to see he's getting better.

Alright, time to go have another awesome day!

A bird got in the house

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

This has to be one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed my husband doing. He opened the front door to step outside, when a bird that had been sitting on our wreath flew into the house. I was in the living room when I heard my husband yell, "Get out of my house!!" Having no idea what was happening, I ran into the hallway to see what was up. There he was. All 6 foot 3 inches of him in a fighting stance, glaring into the kids' playroom. I walked over to his side and followed his line of sight. The small bird was perched gracefully on the top of my window frame. Sadly, that's about where this particular bird's gracefulness ended.

Rob closed in on him, his footsteps light and swift. He was a man 0n a mission to get that bird safely out of the house. The bird took notice of the large figure approaching him and took off! He managed to escape the playroom and smacked head first into the office wall. Dazed, he flew up to the light and perched for a moment to regain his wits. Once again Rob moved in, like a cat on the prowl. The bird resumed its flight and landed on a shelf full of special Navy glasses we've collected over the years. Rob let out a growl of frustration. As if to mock him, the bird proceeded to poop in one of the glasses. Rob growled again started gently moving his hand behind the bird in an effort to coax him out the front door. It didn't work.

The bird made it's way into the kitchen, once again knocking into a wall. It landed on a plastic container full of cereal. Rob managed to slip past it and open the garage door, offering it a second route of escape. But the bird took off into the living room as if to say "Hah! I'm not that easy to get rid of!" It flew under the lounge chair and got stuck. So we moved the chair and tried to catch it that way. No luck. It went hiding into my Christmas tree. At this point my husband starts talking to the bird... "Come on, man! Not the tree! GET OUT!"

I walked into the dining room and opened the sliding glass door that leads out onto the deck. The bird now has 3 escape routes. So what does it do? It returned to the playroom, at the front of the house. This is where it got a little hairy...the bird landed on a tall floor lamp that was turned on. In one swift motion, Rob slipped out of his jacket and threw it over the light, trapping the bird. He quickly shut the light off while I unplugged it. We raced the lamp outside and released the bird. Dazed and possibly a little hurt from the hot light bulb, the bird flew away. We quickly shut all the doors and just looked at each other.

A moment went by without a word spoken. Then it happened. It started as a giggle, and it just bubbled over until I couldn't catch my breath. I had tears running down my face. My very serious husband was just given a run for his money by something smaller than his hand, and he knew it! Once I simmered down he announced that that was enough excitement for one night and went off to bed. And here I sit, an hour later, still chuckling at the look he had on his face.

Sometimes in life you just have to laugh. And laugh, I did.

  bahahaha! That reminds me of the humming bird size moth thing that got into our house at our Christmas in July party! Grandma had her head hiding, it got hit with a plate, did nothing to stun the thing, then it got hit with something else harder and it stopped in mid air, stunned and went back to it's business. I cannot remember to this day how we got it out of the house but man o man was it funny!

100 Day Challenge Days 2-4

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

The beginning of this challenge isn't going so well. My energy and attention has been with my poor son, who is battling an awful stomach bug. It's been a rough week and a half. He's currently at the ER with my hubby. I really hope they can get some fluids in him and get him feeling better.

Day 2 went pretty well. Got in the stretching, devotions, and 6 glasses of water.

Days 3 and 4 didn't go so well. Got in devotions and only 2 glasses of water each day.

So today I'm going to try and be more focused. And if I can get enough energy, I might work out.

This momma needs some sleep. emoticon

  


100 day challenge team

Sunday, December 02, 2012

8 glasses of water a day
Daily devotions
Stretch

I joined this team a few days ago and set out these 3 goals that I would start on Dec 1. Then I didn't realize yesterday's date until almost midnight! emoticon But even with that mistake I still managed to do the devotions and stretching that morning, and grabbed 2 glasses of water before bed. So I'm counting that as my day one. Today I've done devotions already and currently have water with me. Looking forward to this challenge.
