So far this week

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

...It's going pretty well! I'm loving all the fruits and veggies still at my house (Thanks, Dad!). Last night I had a big field greens salad, with chicken, tomatoes, cilantro, a little lo-fat cheese, and this great dressing I've made up: mix Pace Chipotle Salsa (I grabbed it by mistake at the grocery store but I love it), about 3 TBSP, with 1 TBSP Ranch dressing. YUM.

And I've managed to fit in around 30 minutes workout each day, in 10-minute bursts. Last week I was just getting in the swing of things with 10 minutes a day, and this week I'm bumping it up. I'm glad. Wish I could have nice, long 45-minute workouts at a gym, but that is just not to be for me (not on weekdays, anyway) at this stage in my life.

I'm feeling sore today. Did something I hadn't done in a LONG time yesterday - windmill toe-touches, old school! - and my back is feeling it.

We'll probably eat lunch out today so I hope I can make good choices.

    Oh wow....windmills I FORGOT about those...our PE teacher used to have us do those :) I did burpees yesterday for the first time in forever...totally brought me back to PE days too....that was courtesy of a Jillian Michael's DVD. Good luck on making good choices at lunch....I took my 13 year old daughter out on a date on Monday night to Bonanza of all places and oh dear did I overindulge!! I worked it all off though, and you will too! :) Have a good day and keep up the good work! :)

Monday morning

Monday, February 18, 2013

We had a fun weekend with my parents and my little girlie's birthday friends.

We tried -- my parents are on WW -- to not go crazy overboard on points/calories, but it was hard. Excuses, excuses. It's okay. I'm planning a low-end-of-my-range day today, and plenty of water, and hopefully the damage will be undetectable. It was fun comparing the WW iPhone apps to the Sparkpeople. (They're very similar!)

And it helps to have everyone being conscious of calories together! Dad went to the grocery store and bought all kinds of fruits and veggies for us (zero points!), and left them at my house, so I'm set for the week to eat well!

Have a good Monday, everyone!

This weekend will be crazy

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This weekend is my daughter's 5th birthday (Friday), so my parents are driving up from Florida to be with us. Yay! I love having them, even though our house starts feeling pretty small sometimes when we have guests.

It's also my 8yo son's Pinewood Derby all day Saturday. I'm glad the grandparents will get to experience that event -- it's always a lot of fun. The 5yo has Kindergarten testing that same morning -- luckily it's at the same place! -- at 8:30 am.

And THEN, we're having an actual party for the birthday girl on Sunday. Remind me to order a cake....!

It's going to be a whirlwind! I haven't even cleaned a single surface in my house in preparation. !!!! Aaaack!

    I know how you feel. I have 5 February birthdays in my family and they're all coming next weekend! This weekend we're just having my son's which is a kids party and I don't have to worry about the house as much (thankfully middle school boys couldn't care less if there's dust on the piano, as long as the pizza is decent and the video games are on) but after that, it's time to roll up my sleeves and get serious! Enjoy your party and your company...hope your daughter has a happy 5th! emoticon

Stupid busy

Friday, February 08, 2013

I'm so sick of being stupid busy at work. I don't even have time to be blogging here but just feel like I want to vent. I set up my days with no time in between tasks, and hope to get all of MY priorities finished -- and every day, I get two or three additional requests that apparently have higher rank. So then I feel behind every day.

It's getting old, is what I'm saying.

TGIF! And I did my ten minutes.
