Broke even

Monday, August 22, 2011

Whew. After a stressful week and some not so great food choices, I stayed at what my previous week weight was.

Jake started school today. I heard his teacher was good from other moms so that was a relief. I can't wait to get home and pick him up to find out how his day went. He's now in 1st grade. It will be interesting to see how he does with the increased work load. I think he should be fine. We have sporadically worked on reading over the summer and he loves math by default. Currently, I'm reading Charlotte's Web to him. Sometimes I think he isn't listening and I test him on what I just read. He usually gets it right. He just moves around alot and I assume he isn't listening.

Did my first fantasy football draft last Friday. I stayed up too late the night before and worked straight through lunch. Bad Idea. I made some really dumb choices. Oh well. It will be an adventure. Good practice for my money league! Broncos are looking better. It will be interesting to see who ends up 2nd QB. Quinn sure is fighting for the position.

    Wow - 1st grade. Sometimes that's harder on the moms than the students!

I'm sure he's going to have a great year.

Its the weekend!

Friday, August 12, 2011

I'm so happy for the weekend to be here. Going out with the girls tomorrow night to a new Mexican restaurant so that should be fun. Possibly swimming with Jake and hubby.

My sisters want to go see The Help on Sunday but hubby thinks he may have other plans which he doesn't want to tell me yet. He gets mad at me for not informing him/asking him but he doesn't want to make a decision until the last minute. Meanwhile my sisters are waiting for a committment. GAH! Makes me crazy. Men!

I hope to get some more geocaching in as well.

Worked out today. Was hoping to catch a step class but when I got there the teacher was out sick so we had 60 min with a personal trainer. Can you say...Ouch? :)

    Doesn't sound like you'll be sitting home this weekend.

I know you'll have fun with the girls night and whatever hubby has in mind! (and of course the geocaching) Maybe it will help you forget about the trainer torture!

What the heck?

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Last week I did a straight up the Mtn 6 mile hike and wasn't sore at all. Yesterday, I did 35 min on the elliptical in weight loss mode and my legs are sore today! Oh well. I'm so glad it is the weekend. Chuckie cheese here we come. Then I'm going geocaching!

    Yea, what the heck? Who knows? Weight loss mode must be a kicker.

Have fun at Chuck E Cheese and Geocaching!! We went for a hike today to scout out hunting spots and I printed out a couple geocaches, but we were no where close to them.

Loved Montana

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Back from Montana. Beautiful state. Hubby got sick and was down and out the entire vacation. I was fighting what he had. I just kept popping Advil and hitting the trail whenever I could. Got in trouble for doing that from hubby but oh well. It was my first real vacation and I wasn't going to let anything stop me from enjoying it. I got in a 6 mile hike to Lava Lake, and 2 1.7 mile hikes to Ouzel Falls. Even got in a geocache hunt!

My niece looked beautiful for her wedding. Everything went well for her and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. My sister is glad it is done! Back on eating healthy. During the stay we did hit the grocery store to minimize eating out. So that was good at least.

On the way home I left my wallet in Burger King in Wyoming. Didn't realize it until I got home. DOH. My sister and her son luckily were about an hour away from the Burger King on the way home when I called them. They picked it up for me. What a week!

This weekend I have a kid's birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. Oh boy. Let the pandomonium ensue. lol

    Glad you were able to get the wallet! I am also facing Chukcie cheese at the end of the month, my youngest turns 5.

    Sounds like a fun vacation. A beautiful Montana wedding and hiking to boot! Sorry your hubby was sick, but at least you were able to ward it off. And leaving your wallet at Burger King - you're lucky you ever saw it again! Thank goodness your sister was near.

AND you got in a geocache!! We were on vacation last week and I had printed off a few caches before we left, but then forgot them at home - darn it, I was really looking forward to them too.

Good luck with Chuck E Cheese - that's always pandemonium but the kids LOVE it! have fun.

Nike Fit Club

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Downloaded the Nike Fit Club app to my ipod and ipad. Tried the beginner level on Tues and Wed. Oh my. I am sore. Today I'm doing yoga to stretch it all out.

My sister is dropping off her wilder than Marley labrador for me to watch this weekend. Definitely will be doing lots of hiking for exercise and to wear the pup out! Hopefully Molly will be able to keep up. I'm afraid the cat will take up permanent residence in the basement during the visit.

I am so looking forward to the 3 day weekend though. DH and son are heading to Indiana Friday so 2 weeks of keeping myself on track. Hmmm maybe the house will actually stay clean!
