On Thursday I woke up very sore from my Firm it Up and really wanted to finish up my Week 2 of the C25 running program. My ambitious goal was to do 1.5 hours or all three of the days in one shot as I have done this week numerous times. Sounds fairly reasonable right?
When have I ever done anything that was fairfly reasonable and have it go right?
I start of with my five minute walk and already notice a problem.
You see, I can't find my bra.
You are probably wondering HOW this could possibly happen but in a house of four girls, it IS possible. The thing is I only own two and my boobies are smaller than that of my 13 year olds.....so I don't know why they'd have them...and if they do it's hidden in their drawer because they can't wear them. I can't wear theirs because...well, let's just face it...I need trainers basically.
So, I put on my Nike sports wear that my BIL bought me almost a decade ago and set off. I wanted to walk / run to Starbucks approximately six miles from my house and have my oldest pick me up. After the first five minutes I knew there was a problem. I thought it was odd that my yoga pants kept rolling down around my belling while doing my Hip Hop Abs, but now they were on my walk too....then the sports shirt started creeping up....and up....
I get to the stop light, adjust my clothing and purse. By the way....when going for a run, don't strap your purse around your neck...it doesn't bode well. It holds the iPhone/music pretty well, but thats about it. So here I am in my first run purse flapping against my butt, then my hip, then my belly and I slightly feel relieved because it's sorta hiding the crawling clothing trying to undress me in traffic.
After a mile or so of continually redressing myself in traffic and readusting my purse off my neck I head back home defeated.
this is the start of my budda belly poppin out....
Friday I still woke up sore and I was happy about this. I had planned on doing Shape it Up/Hip Hop Abs. I drove the kids to school and started to get the shakes. Then hot. Then shivers.
I raced home in my little blue bug full of bird poo (birds love my car) and race in the door straight to the ladies room. Not even time to pick up a magazine.
You see, the week long Clean Eating excusion finally paid off.
Only then I wasn't hungry all day and as I felt exceptionally sore I took some meds...then I got sick.
really sick ~ only I didn't eat all day so it was just this retched sound with no "effect".
So I missed picking up my race packet for the GEMS race and I missed the race this morning. I'm so bummed. I did make my youngest go get my race packet though. She was a trooper and waited to get it, but got it for me. I bought her a Starbucks.
But, hubby's taking me the the run for cure next weekend. It's a walk, but the whole family is going and that sounds like a lot of fun.
Oh! I put the "right" dress on my background. This is the one that's in my "checkout" to order. I just need to hit "enter" haven't done it yet. I'm so nervous, but I just love this dress....so now my question is to you...which one do you like the best? I'm just curious. I'm getting the floral one because it's best for my complexion, but I just wanna hear your input...
MY dress!!! **www.modcloth.com**
My OTHER dress I want...LOL **www.modcloth.com**
now, to look for shoes.
today's goal IS: I'm going to finish cleaning the house. Laundry. That ever freaking load of laundry. The cuppeth that overfloweth into the halleth laundry.
Tomorrows goal is to finish my final paper on "Wives of stay at home Dads"
and in the interim of both I want to do my DVDs
and maybe even a run....but I won't push that...maybe a treadmill run.
close to the bathroom.

I was a busy little bugger today.
I got up, took the girls to school, came home my oldest and I went to the IRS office to get a form that states she didn't file for her 2011 taxes. We have tried going there four times, but being April....yeah. Two hours just to get to the door. So, anyhow today we get there and no line!!
but nn form either, they can't give out that letter until July (don't ask us why) I asked her for a 2010 one and we would give that a shot. We then took the letter and drove to VA Affairs. They looked at us like we were crazy and sent us over to another part of town where there was a VA Services. There were several other college students trying to get their fee waiver forms so we knew we found the right place. Handed over the paperwork (2010) to which they looked at us, smiled and gave us the address to the Franchise Board in, yes, another part of town.
We'll try that again Thursday.
Came home, did my homework as much as I could. I only have three weeks of school left before I begin summer classes. Don't know what major I'm going for as my Deaf Studies contains no available classes AGAIN.
I'm thinking nursing. I know, I know. Blind/Deaf does not make a good nurse. But, here's the deal. I really don't plan on using it (maybe as a nurse's assistant?) and I've always wanted to be a pediatrition when I was younger. As I'm basically schooling to fulfill a dream, why not make it a doozer?
I have this Clean Eating Magazine which has this "lose in two week" menu...
Today was a simple dinner: ready? 2 cups boiled, cubed sweet potato, 4 oz turkey, 1 cup cauliflower steamed (I used 2) and 2 tble salsa.
YUM YUM YUM YUM....I forgot to take a pic though and the serving size looked HUGE. I kept looking in the magazine for a serving size. The calorie on that sucker was over 700 with the olive oil so I'm not sure how that was supposed to be beneficial....I dunno. Still pondering that. Was pretty in range food wise otherwise. though.
Watched the Biggest Loser finale...glad we get to start a new season.
Did umpteen more loads of laundry....can't figure out why no one has clothes yet I have umpteen loads of freaking laundry done....anyone? anyone?
However, as I do laundry, I do squats. Now my legs hurt. yeay me.
My apartment is coming together with 3000 sq ft of stuff shoved in it :o) It really is. Actually, I've been kind of having fun goign through every little nook and cranny putting things away and tossing things....it's very therapudic.
It's weird, I was really enjoying the last six months on my own. I really did. It was nice, bad right? LOL but at the same time. I'm glad he's here. We have hit month 4 of sobriety and on to month five. Go hubby!
Found a Britta water bottle. Two for $17 at Target. Threw away the coffee pot that made 12 cups (and dripped all over) and replaced it with hubby's one cup maker. Oh lordie this is hard, but want to work on the water, see?
obkb....sleepy time. and I am. Going to hit the sack and get my workout clothes ready for tomorrow.
Tomorrow am will finish up a C25 workout. More laundry (no kidding) more homework, and I dunno
see how the day plays out. :o) I'd like to get more than an hour of workout, but goal is minimum 30 minutes.
Oatmeal for breakfast with rasberries
Pea Raviolli in lemon broth for lunch ? ? sounds interesting and
Tuscan Steak with Mederterrainian Bean Salad for dinner
sounds nummy! Let's see how I do tomorrow!!

What a weekend!
Friday was date night and it was very nice. My girls did try planning their activities on that night and I had to put my foot down. It never ceases to amaze me that you tell them something and it goes through their head out the other ear. Tom and I went to Red Lobster, the casino and just had a very nice night. We DID receive a couple of text from the girls "she won't leave me alone!!" teenagers.
But Saturday.....Oh Saturday. My middle one, Kate LOVES ColdPlay, the group. So we had bought her concert tickets to go see them. Tom and I, although familiar with some of their songs did not know as many as she (she memorized their albums)
Words cannot possibly describe this event. When we drove two and a half hours to get there they give you this bracelet. It's a simple bracelet and they have signs that say "put on the bracelet, it's part of the show" No one knows what these things do and I just hoped that they didn't blow my hands off with it..anyway you put this thing on and we watched the first two acts. Not bad, kind of plain and two hours long.
At 9ish the lights go off and my daughters start freaking out. Ear to ear grins that were totally contagious. Then out of no where 18,000 different lights light up the room. It was our bracelets and OMG it looked like a Christmas snow globe!! Then the lasers came, and the stage lit up and confetti kept flying up out of the floor filling the stadium!! Then inflatables (yes infalatebles) would just appear in our rows and disaaprear.
In a nutshell, even if you don't know who ColdPlay was....even if you didn't like their music....it was by far the best freaking concert I've ever seen. You couldn't help but to be mesmerized by everything around you. The lights were intoxicating and the sound simply breathtaking. It turns out I do like their music. The two hours that they played went by so fast that my only regret was that it ended. I remember thinking at the encore, "the only way this show would be perfect is if they played 'Tears of a Waterfall'"....last song.
perfect. simply perfect
justice cannot be done with a picture.
Well, today begins a new Monday and I'm beginning a new page, a new month and a new goal...which is the old goal.
I just broke it down a little. I need to stay focused on the prize, which is now plastered all over the background of my page. I either want that dress of the florwal springie one....
and a pair of shoes...pink.
But first, I have a run this weekend. Just me. No kids, no hubby just me to try and see what I can do. I have to buy a pair of running shoes though as my old ones are what.....a year and a half old? Shins are starting to hurt with them. Anyone have Rykas? Going to get me a pair of those.
So May Day May Day!!
Going to Clean Eat (have my menu, shopping done)
Going to Hip Hop Abs/Slim Series for ST & extra cardio
Going to FINISH my C25 and runs....
Goal 10 pounds or 165 in May..
Wednesday, April 25, 2012
well, I was all gung ho for an hour jog. I got outside and felt it sprinkling a little on me. Hooray! I love a little sprinkle, went past my warm up....the sprinkles got a little harder, past the gym and thought "should I do this on the treadmill?"
about ten minutes into it, I was rethinking that choice. LOL Then my daughter kept texting me. She forgot her homework.
Then another text
I turned around and looked at my clock....22 minutes.
not the hour I wanted, but it'll do.
I have this dress I want. It's about 10,000 sizes too small. I'm going to get it.
I want it....
That's a whole lotta running
However, I somehow fit into my 13 year old's bra. I don't know if that's good news or really really really sad.
I vote sad.
*from the car, but you get the idea*
