Happy Memorial Day!

Monday, May 30, 2011

I was so excited to see my little one in her first parade. It was so cute. It was a very nice parade, a lot of vets, cars, animals, scouts, different clubs, organizations.

Then came home and the real work came. My husband is still broken so my mother in law came over and she mowed while I weeded and trimmed the bushes. We have way to much landscaping. I don't know how my father in law kept up with it all! It took us about hour and half in pver 90 dgree weather! WOW! But we got the front done. We are saving the back for another day. That has the most landscaping. Way too many bushes. Its pretty but a lot of work. At least we got the back grass mowed. The bushes can stay bushy!!!

    I like it when something happens in your city, nice to shake things up for a bit.

Your kids must love your garden if it's that big! Sounds like a good place for playing. emoticon

We are back home and I am wore out

Sunday, May 29, 2011

So my husbands back is really messed so I had to load and unload the car full of clothes, dog cage, others misc stuff. In addition I had to chase the kids and dog around. SO I def got more than enough excercise this weekend. I didn't eat that great yesterday though. WE went to a BBQ restaurant. I watched my portion I cut the sandwich in half. It was tasty!

The extra workout shoudl have taken care of it though!

    Being a mum seems like an exercise itself!

I hope you had a nice weekend with your family! emoticon

    Bully for you! I'll bet your scale will smile at you! It's very tiring to load and unload a car -- I know because nearly every week we've been coming to our summer home, and it seems there is always a lot of stuff to bring both ways! By the middle of June we should have everything up here that we want up here and it will just be routine things like groceries to bring. Clothing is at both homes so no worry there.

Have a great weekend

Saturday, May 28, 2011

So we will be leaving soon to my father in laws. He only lives about an hour away but it is always a nice weekend gettaway. we will be home tomorrow so while we are gone, I will be tracking!! I plan to get a lot of cardio in. He has a nice big yard so we will be able to play. We may even take the dog and kids to the park out there. I always packed a lot of healthy snacks to take!

Enjoy the weekend!

Long Weekend approaching and I ate too much today!

Friday, May 27, 2011

I was worried about eating this weekend since we are going out to my father-in-laws. Yet I stopped at Wendys because we are running around all day and the kids wanted food. i had to get me a buffalo dipped chicken sandwich! I made everything small size and only drank not even half the pop. I also got me a salad for dinner tonight. Thinking maybe they would offset. Boy was I shocked when I saw my tracker. No snacks tonight. Good thing I have been very active and will continue to do a ton of cleaning this afternoon. The sandwich was yummy though. That was my reward for the next 3 weeks!!!

    What an excellent outlook. You chose the small size and put it in your tracker, accepted the consequences made adjustments and moved on. emoticon

I can only hope I do the same if/when faced with a similar situation. emoticon

Well, no change yet again. emoticon. I have been working so hard and I thought I was going to lose at least 1 lb. The back of my thighs seem like their getting harder though?!

I am not going to let this get me down and give up. I am feeling good so I know it is doing something!

Here is to another week, maybe some results them

    You poor thing! Here I am whining and complaining after 3 DAYS and you've been working for 3 WEEKS! That is enough for me to consider I've been kicked in the butt -- you are a great incentive to me to learn more patience!

Thank You! Eve
