Ahhh! Things are crazy right now! I'm trying so hard not to let it get me stressed out (that's difficult!)... just to go with the flow. I KNOW that getting some exercise is one way to battle the stress monster so I'm trying. Just did a seated cardio workout at my desk before anyone else gets here to the office (well, a few people are here. Every once in a while when i heard the door open, I paused Coach Nicole, clicked to another window, and waited for them to walk by. Heh.
Anyway, exercise. Will alleviate stress. SO DO IT. (I'm talking to myself there.)
Tonight's a Cub Scout crossover event for my son, Thursday's choir practice, Friday night's my girl's pre-k graduation, Saturday's my cousin's HS graduation!

I got off track a little bit. Last weekend it just rained and rained and rained some more. So there was no walking in the neighborhood. And I had houseguests (my parents), and my house is not large. There wasn't really a place to get away from everyone to workout (and truth be told, I didn't want to, I wanted to hang out with them).
And then we went to my uncle's retirement community and had Sunday brunch in the dining room. Let's just say there were biscuits involved. Annnnd desserts.
So, I'm sorry, Sparkers. I did not do real well for a few days.
Today I did yoga at 5:30 am, and just took a 10-minute walk. I have a treadmill in my sights for tomorrow, unless I'm forgetting some lunchtime errand.
I keep on truckin.

Hoooooooray, it's finally Friday! It's also the beginning of what I like to call May Madness. Mother's Day, graduations, end-of-year parties for the kids, Memorial Day (we always travel)... it is about to get Ker-Azy around here!
My parents are visiting this weekend. Tonight I'm making dinner at home (brown rice with shrimp, avocado, cilantro, etc.). They're on Weight Watchers and have lost around 15 lbs each, and they're very diligent about it. It helps me "do the right thing," too!
We'll likely go out to dinner tomorrow, though, so I hope we can find someplace good and make smart choices. DOGGIE BAG! SALAD!
The one bad thing is that I haven't done my walking much this week. I've GOT to get back in the swing of things with fitness. GOT TO. Beach vacation time will be here in just 7 short weeks!

Got home from work and had a snack that wasn't a wise choice (chips and dip, ugh). It only put me over my limit by 100-ish calories, but I felt just Blech about it the rest of the night. Kinda bloated and uncomfortably full, too.
I never used to feel it physically that way, so maybe my body's getting used to eating less (?) -- at any rate, it was a rookie move and I'm confessing it, and now let's move on, because it's a new day, and a new month, and it's going to be good.
