Busy, but good. Got up early and put in an hour at the gym. Bunco night and I needed to get some extra exercise in! Came home, started laundry, cooked my brocolli and started the candy I take to every Bunco.
Went to the concessions stand for softball (didn't eat anything there!) for a couple hours and came back home. Lunch, laundry, grocery list and coupons for grocery shopping. Off to the library (Book sale!!!) and then a whole bunch of stores and back home. Unload and put away groceries, finish the candy, work on the laundry and cook dinner (okay, I started dinner and my daughter finished it).
Boxed up the candy and left for Bunco. Asked the familty at LEAST five times to keep the dryer going. The kids had to make their beds too, but other than that, just keep the dryer going. When I got home, the dryer was going. BUT...it had the same clothes in it as were in when I left THREE HOURS AGO!!!
We really need to get our dryer line cleaned and until we do, it takes forever to dry clothes. But, not this long. IF the dryer had been running, those clothes would be dry. It is SO frustrating to ask so little and get even less. DH said I should have called to remind them (in the middle of my one night of fun). Fine, you call me to remind me to make dinner every night. Grrrr.....
Suffice it to say that the family knows that I am irritated with every siingle one of them. I will now be up late to make sure we don't get moldy clothes. So, pretty good day that got shot when I came home. Now I'm cranky and frustrated and need to work off some of the excess energy. So, I'll put the legs on our new couch, pound on the keys really hard (LOL) and then go relax with a book. I hope Saturday Night Live is a new one!!

My company has started a Walk to Wellness program. From April 30th through May 27th, each person is challenged to walk a certain number of minutes or steps. The choices are 200 or 400 minutes and 20,000 or 40,000 minutes. Choose one of the four.
I decided that I would join and there was an option to start a team. So I did. I sent the information to all of the women I work with (only about 12 of us). I'm totally stoked that there are 7 people on my team!!! So many of the ladies I talked to said that they really need to do something and my invitation was the push they needed. Yippee!!! I'm ready to start walking and am a little bummed we have to wait until next week we can start tracking.

We had three gorgeous days and two almost as gorgeous right before that. Today, it was cloudy and colder and I just feel bleah!
Should have gone to the gym and just couldn't make myself go. Tomorrow, my daughter has a game after work, so no time to work out. I will go to bed early tonight and get up early tomorrow and do one of JM DVD's. I'd like to do both, but no way will I get up THAT early!

I will be the first to admit that I am a nerd. I love to read, I think math is fun and I took my pedometer apart when it stopped running to see if I could fix it. (I couldn't, but someone else is trying.)
I found three books that are coming out soon that I want to read. Three of my favorite authors, James Patterson, Nora Roberts and Dan Brown. I went to the library and filled out green cards on two of them. I'll fill out the third on Saturday.
Plus, they had three of the books I had requested holding for me. Yippee!! I can hardly wait to finish the book I'm on so I can start those books! Plus, I have four or five more in the queue. Heck, I gotta go! Reading to do!

I kicked butt on eating today. I met all but three of my nutrition goals. I went over on fiber by one gram. Since it was only one gram, shouldn't I be able to count that as a meet?
Anyway, I also went over on sodium, but only by 38. For me, that's like amazing!! I am usually closer to 4300mg every day, so 2338 is AWESOME!! I am trying to reduce my sodium intake and apparently, I'm making progress.
The last nutrient was carbs. I went under on that. Personally, I think my carb range is too high since I NEED protein. But, I'm not a nutritionist, so I'm not changing anything.
Overall, pretty happy with my results today. Now, I'll work on tomorrow!
