Too much weekend . . . I guess.

Tuesday, May 29, 2012



I don't know if the weekend was too long or what. Woke up late and to top it off, baby girl is sick! Too sick to go to the gym or school for that matter. Don't know if she picked up a bug over the weekend or if she ate something that didn't agree with her. Poor baby! Sent her back to bed. :( So, I am on my own for exercise today. Can't wait to get to work so I can walk at break time and lunch. I have to get back into the swing of things this week. Will be dusting off the exercise bike later this evening as well! Hope everyone has an awesome day! :)

    So, the banquet was a no go last night, but my poor baby was feeling a little better today and went to school. No gym though. :( So I broke out the one mile walk DVD again. Yay Leslie! :)

    I hate when the kids are sick. I hope she was well enough for the banquet, tonight.

Glad that the weekend is almost over!

Monday, May 28, 2012



Let me start this blog by saying that I HAD A WONDERFUL WEEKEND with my family! I had a lot of fun watching movies with the pooh and piglet and had a really good time at the pool with the girls yesterday.

And then the shoe dropped. So let me just ask, does anyone else feel like they really struggle on weekends to stay on track with fitness as well as eating healthy? I do! I get up later (because I stay up later), I lose my 'me time' early in the mornings when I sleep in, I am not on a tight schedule, so I rarely get all the exercise on the weekends that I get during the week and by Monday (Tuesday this week!) I feel like a big lump that has eaten too much and probably burned the same amount of calories as a snail!

No gym today, because of the holiday. :( No, I am not depressed, just woke up this morning feeling very bloated, frustrated and tired. Working on my second cup of coffee and praying for some energy to revitalize me today. Yes, I know that I should continue to get up early and go for a walk or pull out the workout DVD, but it just doesn't happen on weekends. It doesn't help that it is overcast outside and Pooh will probably want to sit around and watch movies all day. I will have to try and resist. Maybe I will go outside and wash the car, rake the yard or find some other activity to do instead. I don't really know yet. :(

I have to tell ya'll that I feel really guilty when I don't watch movies with him or just sit around and talk on the weekends. I work long hours all week and have very little time left each day for him. Since his cancer diagnosis, he really doesn't have a lot of energy to go places and be active, so he spends a lot of time indoors. This does not make room for spending time together AND burning calories. So, I try to get the most exercise that I can during the week to enable me to spend inactive time at home on weekends. Honestly, I am afraid that one day soon he will not be here and I will regret not watching those weekend movies with him. I know that dreaded day will come all too soon.

Alright, I am finished whining now and starting to feel better and more awake. Off to tidy up the house and cook some brunch for Pooh! Thanks for listening. :)

    Yes, I do struggle to stay on track on the weekends but for the MOST part I do. I usually allow myself 1 extravegant dessert on the weekend and 1 (less than healthy dinner-like Italian sausage-Yummy) and I track it. As for exercise, I still get it in. I understand wanting to spend the extra time with Pooh. My only suggestion is to give up 30 min. of your sleeping in time for exercise. Just 30 min. can make a world of difference. My hubby got hurt at work in Oct. and is currently physically disabled. His workman's comp. has forced him back to work and so he's in agony most of the time (we have an attorney but it's a long process). As a result, physical activity together is out. Our together time is movies, also. I am currently unemployed (job searching, though) and so when he gets home from work by 5:00, we have our family time and evenings together. Also, is there any exercise that you can do while watching movies? Maybe a stationary bike or treadmill. Maybe chair marching. I know it can be a little ditracting when movie watching but it can be a good compromise. I totally understand wanting to spend as much time with Pooh as possible. I can't even fathom facing a diagnosis like that. My hubby and I have been married 22 years this summer and together 25 yrs. He's my very best friend in the whole world. I wish you the best.

    If your hubby is Pooh and your daughter is Piglet, who are you? Not Eeyore, I hope. You certainly don't sound like Eeyore. You are too upbeat for that. Ohhhhh....I get it....what does Pooh love most? Honey. And you are his honeypot!!! Cute.

I am sorry to hear that your hubby has cancer. It is a terrible disease. I hope his treatments are having success. I definitely think you should spend lots of quality time with him your family on the weekends. Concentrate on your exercising AND eating well during the week (Mon-Fri), and just focus on eating healthy on the weekends and having quality family time. Don't over indulge and you will still make progress. I know it is easier said than done, but you can do it (after all it is no fun to feel like a "lump...bloated....frustrated....ti
red"). You don't have to exercise every day. You have to adjust the spark lifestyle to your own particular circumstances and that means lots of Pooh time and healthy eating! Remember that this isn't a race to the finish line.

My only other advice is that although this is a great website, be careful about spending too much time on here. It can make you sit a lot! I learned that from experience. Best of luck!

    My hubby goes to bed early, so my ME time is after that. Which of course makes me stay up too late and then I walk around like a zombie from sleep deprivation! Makes it hard sometimes to get the exercise in.

I tend to get more exercise on the weekends just because there is more time to do it. When I don't get home from work until 6 pm, and then I need to cook eat and clean up dinner, I'm pretty much pooped! I do the SP videos, short and to the point. I can always muster at least 10 minutes!

    It seems like you need to beat yourself up today - well, don't. You are doing the best you can, so give yourself a break! Life is short as we all know. Try to spend quality time with your loved ones, but also remember to take care of YOU in moderation. That is all you can do.

Love is Life, Life is Love, Without Either There is No Being...

Sending bright thoughts along with well wishes...Rhoda

    I'm glad you had a wonderful day. I can tell you're excited about the pregnancy. Is this your first grandbaby? I look forward to being a grandma someday. Right now, my daughter is 19 and just finished up her sophmore year of college. My son is 12 and hopefully many years away from being a daddy. The idea of being a grandma (one day in the far future) is major motivation for me. I loved being pregnant and if our finances had been better, I probably would have had like 4 children. I want to hold and smell some babies, so bad and as a future grandma I love the idea of enjoying them and leaving middle of the night feedings and tantrums to someone else :).

    Hey girl,
Glad to hear you had a great weekend! Here I was all upset because I ate too much and didn't track my food, and I completely disregarded the fact that I had a great time with the family. Thanks for keeping things in perspective...I will try to stay positive from now on! Keep up the good work!

It's almost pooltime!

Sunday, May 27, 2012



I am so excited to be going to see my (very pregnant) baby girl! Looking forward to four or five hours of baby girl and mommy time! :) It is just an added bonus that she has a nice pool where she lives and we will spend most of our time in it. I hope everyone is having a great Memorial weekend!

Swimsuit shopping. . . Ugh!

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Heading back to my daughter's tomorrow for a cookout and a bunch more pool time! :) Bringing the sunblock this time and an actual swimming suit! lol. So I ran out to Bealls to purchase a swimsuit for the weekend activities (as I did not own one). Shopping for clothes is NOT one of my favorite things to do! I much prefer shopping for food (go figure). Not much to choose from (in my size). All separate pieces - mix and match type thing. I settled for one that fit comfortably, hid certain parts and that I could live with being seen in public in. Pooh Bear approves, so I guess I did alright. ;)

    I like the two pieces. I usually get a one piece but I may try a tankini this year.

That's great that you like it and feel comfortable wearing it. That's what matters most, right?

Have fun at the party! emoticon

    I like it!
I don't have to worry about swimsuits because I don't know how to swim and I'm crazy afraid of large bodies of water :/
Enjoy your cookout and pooltime!

    I hate bathing suit shopping! Doesn't everyone? I should go and do it though. It will likely help me in the motivation department. LOL. Have fun tomorrow. Swimming is great exercise.

    I love that you didn't go for black. It seems like all the bathing suits I look at are in black. Just because black is supposed to make you look thinner doesn't mean I want to wear it 24/7! And I really don't think any bathing suit is going to make me look thinner! I do water aerobics twice a week, so mine gets a pretty good workout. That's all I care about, that it stays in place when I'm jumping around! emoticon
