So much to do...

Friday, March 27, 2009

and little time to do it. DH and I have an appointment 1st thing in the morning (okay, 9:00, but it feels first thing). Afterwards, I plan to return some track pants, do my grocery shopping (three stores) and go to the library. I want to do all of the errands before coming home since it will save me a good 45 minutes of driving AND the gas.

Here's the thing. I don't have my menus done yet. Since I don't have menus, I don't have a grocery list. And here I am Sparking! Anyway, after I get the menu and list done, I need to gather all my documents for tomorrow's meeting. Looks like I'll be working out AFTER my errands!!

Time to be responsible. emoticon Signing off now. Later taters!


Update on all my goals

Thursday, March 26, 2009

HPC - Haven't done any pushups in about two weeks. My back is getting better, but isn't quite there yet. Close, really close. Maybe by Sunday I can do a progress test and start again.

No DP - I had one can on Tuesday morning on the way to work. I was TIRED and hungry, so I drank a DP and ate a string cheese. None since, thought. Feeling pretty good about this one.

Reach goal by 3/31 - Um, not so good. I was up to 138 two days ago!!! It wasn't real and I'm back down to 133.6 as of this morning. I did get some advice from a fellow Sparker to Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince, Dinner like a Pauper. Tried it yesterday and today and planning it again tomorrow. Seems to be helping. THANKS EMPRESS0007!

One unassisted pull up - See back has prevented me from working on this. That, and I'm not finding the motivation to bother! Bad attitude, but that's the one I have now. I'm sure something will change.


Long awaited pics...

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Okay, so long awaited by me, but it sounds good, right? I tried taking pictures and having my kids take the pictures and I'm still very unhappy with that old woman! LOL!! My hair looked really good after I left the salon yesterday. Of course, I couldn't recreate it today. I'll try again tomorrow with some different styling tools/techniques/curses. emoticon

Bangs are trying to take off, but other than that, this is about right. It's my own style and my daughter and I do NOT have the same haircut!

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!
