Lazy Sunday

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Today has been a fairly good day. Got up early and hit the gym before it got crowded. DH made breakfast and then I took a nap. Did some laundry, read my book, took another nap. Then DH and I went to Barnes and Noble. I got a daily calendar for my desk (half price!) and a list of books to check out of the library! Dinner is in the oven and I'm ready to read some more.

Hope everyone is having a great day!


Bunco - Cheat Day

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Tonight is Bunco, an excuse to get together with friends, eat and drink and be merry. For those who don't know, Bunco is a dice game. There are three tables with three die at each table. There are twelve players divided among the three tables. Each round, you try to roll as many of the number for that round as you can before the head table hits 21. The number changes each round, starting at one and ending at six. We play three sets of six rounds and whoever has the highest score at the end of the game wins. We each put in $10 and the winner takes it all home. The person with the last Bunco (three of a kind of the number you're rolling) gets a door prize. Everyone brings food to share and their own drink.

There are many variations on how to split the money, who brings what and all. The main thing is it's fun and a great reason to get out of the house! emoticon emoticon


Mammogram for Me!

Friday, January 23, 2009

This month I turned 40. With that momentous event comes some great fun...yearly mammograms! I've had one previously to serve as a baseline. I guess I'm lucky in that I have small breasts so there was no pain. Only a little discomfort with the way they make you stand for the pictures.

In addition to the standard mammogram, I got an ultrasound on the right one. My doctor had discovered something that concerned her during my annual physical. The good news is that nothing showed up in either test!! And, I'm good for another year before I need to go back! Yippee!!

Boot Camp Blog

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

The bonus challenge for the Boot Camp today was to write a blog about the challenge. Unfortunately, I'm a little disillusioned today. The workouts are short and not too difficult. You can tailor them to your fitness level. That being said, I think I expected them to be a little bit harder, more of a challenge. My vision of Boot Camp is like basic training. Hard!

I do like the Bonus Challenges. They are often things that I would not have done without being "challenged" to do it.

Two weeks down, two to go (roughly). I'll stick with it because I said I would. But today, the excitement is gone.

The gym was still full, even though DH and I got there later than normal. Instead of using the elliptical, I got on a treadmill. My carpool partner mentioned that he had run a half mile over the weekend, a quarter of a mile at a time. I tend to be a little bit competitive (OK, REALLY competitive!) and I decided that I could run a half mile all at once. By the time I got to the half mile, I had decided to just keep going. I ended up jogging for 28.5 minutes at 5.0 mph alternating between an incline of 1.0 and 3.0. My thighs are going to screech at me tomorrow, but it feels good tonight!
