Good news is that I finally got my hair done today and I LOVE it. Bad news is DH was on the PC from the time I got home until 10:30. I'm usually in bed by 10:30, so I'm hurrying through all my Sparking. I'll catch up on everyone's blogs and postings tomorrow (I hope!).

I'll post a pic manana too. Now it's time to go to bed. Later skaters!

Progress, sorta...

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

I started again today with no Diet Pepsi. I have made progress in reducing the amount of DP I drink. Yesterday, I had one can. Compared to a "normal" Sunday of one liter of DP plus three or more cans, I'd say I've done all right!

No pushups again today. My back is so very close to being healed. I'm going to wait until at least Wednesday before trying pushups again. Maybe longer. I don't want to set myself back...again.

Went over in calories, but not as far over as the last couple of days. Feeling more in control and ready to stay on track.

Tomorrow's the day!! I am getting my hair done and my fingers are crossed that it will actually happen! I can tell it's time. Every day, my hair winds up in a pony tail or a clip, usually before noon. That's a hint that something needs to be done! LOL!


Bunco was a blast!

Sunday, March 22, 2009

I didn't win, but it was fun. Didn't go overboard on eating, either. Of course, most of the ladies left their food here. Luckily it wasn't bad stuff. Wheat thins, baked wheat thin chips, tortilla chips, etc. My kids will have snacks for most of Spring Break!

Tried a new dinner tonight, Chicken Parmesan, from the Spark Recipes site. I got two "make it agains" and one "please don't make it every week, but other than that, okay" How's that for overwhelming support! LOL! At least I have something new to add to the rotation.

It's been a very pleasant Sunday. Went to breakfast with DH, got my dog a haircut, bought a new work out top (and used it!). Now it's time to go relax.



Blessing in disguise?

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Yesterday I reported that I had to reschedule my hair appointment. This morning, I'm outside showing my kids some work they needed to do and I noticed that I have a flat tire on my truck. Bummer! I don't have anywhere I need to go now, so the flat tire can wait to be fixed (which is good. I have tons of other stuff to do today!).

I did go to the library which is just over a mile from my house. Walked there and back since my daughter needed my bike to get to softball practice. It started to sprinkle a little when I was almost back home. Nice timing!

Now it's time to make my candy for Bunco tonight, vacuum, do the Jillian Michaels video, shower and then, hopefully, relax a little before my guests arrive.



Delayed and a little bummed

Friday, March 20, 2009

So, I'm not getting my hair done tomorrow after all. My lady had two cancellations and I would have been the only one she was coming in for. Since she would have had to drive over 30 minutes each way, I didn't really want to make her come in for just one appointment. When you're in business for yourself, every little bit counts.

The good news is that I am rescheduled for Tuesday after work. I've waited 8 months, I can wait three more days. I'm glad that I didn't tell everyone at work that I was getting my hair done. Imagine the comments! You got your done?!?!!??!?? emoticon

I am still hosting Bunco tomorrow. My house is looking great! Still have some cleaning to do tomorrow, but got a lot done today. I even cleaned out DH's "filing" cabinet. (He piles all of the bills on the counter and calls it good.) I found stuff from 2007!!! Looks soooooo much better! Going to try to keep it that way too.

I took a picture that didn't make me cringe too much. Why do I look so much older than I feel? When I win the lottery (of course, I would have to buy a ticket first!), I will get all of those expensive skin treatment gels and goops to make me look as good as I feel! Here's the before. I'll post the after on Tuesday or Wednesday and pray for an improvement!! LOL!!
