My weekend

Sunday, October 24, 2010

First I want to thank everyone for the POPULAR BLOG AWARD! What an awesome thing to come home too! That was soo great and of course, Frank thinks it was due to him cause the blog featured his selfishness...rofl.

Had a good weekend at the races altho we got rained out but I talked to some people I dont know very well and found out that a girl I know had lost over 100 pounds 3 years ago. I never would have known that which was so cool so we had lots to talk about as you can imagine. She did it herself, just like we are. It was really cool learning that about her.

Another cool thing was I won a 16 gb IPOD Nano in the raffle so I am excited about learning how to download music etc. ( I am going to make Mezzoangel sing every song I like! Have you HEARD her sing!!??Holy crap!! She is amazing!)

Um and I found out two things that do not mix: Miralax and McDonalds. Just saying. You do NOT want to do that. Beleive me.

Hope you guys had a great weekend and didnt miss me too much!! Jan

    emoticon Congrats on the popular blog award. Boo Hoo on the miralax and McDonalads! Bet that will make the numbers shift on the scale. When I went to the gyn for checkup, I wanted to take off my earrings, clean my ears, cut my hair, anything possible before stepping on the scale. Dang it, I should have thought of Miralax! The kids pediatrician used to prescribe that for anything from a hangnail to a brain tumor. Go get that music downloaded, girlie. Know you will enjoy your new ipod! emoticon

My husband is so selfish!!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

(Please look up the word: sarcasm before beginning this blog)

He is really a bastard. So selfish. I mean, all he can think of is himself.

Like how my weight loss benefits him. As an example, because I have lost 50 pounds, he gets to go Kayaking. Because I am smaller, HE had more room in the double bed we slept on in Utah. Because of MY healthier choices, he gets to eat better.
Because of my needing to walk, HE gets to come and be healthier too, then gets to spend time TALKING to me and connecting and unwinding instead of being met with a cranky, shut down wife.

Because I feel better, sex is better. I have more energy to go do stuff and feel more positive which benefits him since we work together. Then to top it off, I look better so people think he is lucky. I save him money when we go out cause I dont get the huge tub of popcorn at the movies or the expensive dinner with appetizer.

I will even get to live longer which is a huge benefit to him because come on, he will need caring for so now I will have to do it. And he is soo happy about all of this stuff, so proud cause it benefits him!

Cant believe I married such a man. Here I am struggling and working so hard. And what do I get? Him. Life. Health. Adventure. Man, that really sucks.

Procrastinator alert!!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Yesterday, I was soo bad! I had a bunch of work stuff to do and my house needs attention and I just couldnt pull it together. I would work for awhile, then hit facebook or sparkpeople and I didnt get the stuff done that I needed to do.

So, at the end of the day, I made a master list of things that I need to do by the end of October which includes serious things like quarterly reports and mundane things that I NEVER do such as dentist appts and scheduling to have my tv repaired and my carpet cleaned.

I feel much more prepared to get things done now so I can cross them off and have that list completed. Now, instead of just thinking about all the things I need to do, I have concrete visualizations and I can make progress. Im sure I will have to add things to the list as I think of them but I fully intend to do be done with all of it, on time.

What have you been putting off doing? Big or small?

I need to do a deep cleaning of my house. This unseasonably nice weather has kept my husband and me outdoors on the weekends...which isn't necessarily a bad thing...except that the house is getting neglected. SO...we're supposed to have a rainy weekend this weekend...my list is started!

    I did the same thing yesterday as far as setting some priorities for the day.

I made an appointment for myself (routine dentist cleaning). I made and eye doc appt. for DD for when she comes home for Christmas break from college. I had also made her a dentist cleaning for the same week.

I then "mapped" out a holiday plan after talking to my MIL and sent out invitations accordingly so nobody would be left out.

I wonder...Picture blog

Monday, October 18, 2010

Disclaimer: I have a video but am having problems loading so we are gonna go with the still shots for now and I hope to be able to load the video eventually. ***

So I am standing at the bottom of a gorge in Utah, getting ready to do some fishing. I looked up at this walking path that goes all the way to the top of the mountain. I said to myself, "Damn that is crazy! Who goes up there??" Then a few minutes later, I looked again and I said, "I wonder if I could go up there?"



So then I said, "Ok what if I just went like halfway". I told my husband and friends I was gonna do it and then I just went! Took my camera and I started up.
As I went, I took pictures of how far I had gone already so you will be looking back down the trail that I went up.

And I kept going.


And I told myself "20 more steps, just 20 more"

And I kept taking pictures of how far I was from where I started.


And I felt my legs working hard to haul my ass up those stairs and I felt my lungs puffing trying to suck in enough air at 11000 feet and I kept going. I wanted to see what was around the next corner and I wanted to see if I could keep going.

And I kept looking at how far I came and that kept pushing me to go farther.





And then, I got really close to the top and there were about 20 more steps to go. I wanted to stop, to say "That is close enough. You did great. Way more than I thought you could do!" But I kept going because I wanted to know that I could. I felt that good enough isn't good enough anymore.

And then I was there. At the top. All alone. And it felt fantastic. So I set up my camera on a rock and I set my timer and I took a picture of me wayyyy up on this mountain and I took a picture of myself. For me. For you. For all of us.


Because when you wonder if you can do it, if you can keep going, if you think you can only go halfway but then keep going past there, when you have a mountain in front of you and choose to tackle it, when you can look back at how far you have come, I want you to remember something: YOU CAN.

When you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, remember: YOU CAN!


I haven't wondered what I could do for a long, long time. I shut myself down before I even tried. I would not have even thought about trying it! But I wondered if I could and then I did it and it was WONDER-FUL! I amazed myself today. I amazed my husband and my friends. My body amazed me! I wonder what else I can do?

    Yay!!! Congrats!!!! Amazing view!!!
Heres a quote I ran across once that reminds me of your entry.. =]

''Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebbles that cause us to stumble... Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.''

    Wow your blog reminded me of my track up to crystal lake?, in Yosemite. 1/2 way to half dome! It looked identical! I swear I cried and quit 3X(complete brkdown) , I passed other women who gave up and just kept going with tears in my eyes, Hubs kept saying " You can make it, just keep moving" when I finally made it, I don't think I have ever done anything I was more proud of in my life. Great job! That was about 8 yrs ago, I was 20pds heavier than now , before I was an athlete, today I look forward to doing it again! Thanks for the memories!! ~Maci~ emoticon you have earned your hiking boots girl!
