Frank took me to Monterey today. We have been wanting to go since the weather has been so beautiful so today, we went. Evn though I was supposed to do the 28 day workout today. Well gee, that's a toss up. Monterey wins! We drove down, went to a deli, got sandwhichws and headed to the beach with our big chairs. We ate lunch, watching whales blow spouts up into the air offshore, then fell asleep in the sun. After a quick nappy, I had to pee so we packed up, went to a restroom and then took a nice 50 minute walk along the paths of the ocean. Heaven! Then we sat and watched the sunset and started the `where do you want to have dinner` conversation. I was at the edge of my limit so i said, lets just eat the other half of our sandwiches and we did, happily eating as we drove home. My San which was rotisserie chicken with Swiss and bacon, those 2 measley precooked pieces. I got 100 calorie packs of reduced pringles because I have a portion problem and I brought a 100 calorie pack of chocolate pretzels while frank had peanut m and M's. I also brought an apple.
I say all of that to say this....I had a nice day with my husband and a nice lunch and yes I could have gone high wild and had a fattening restaurant meal because it was a special day. Ut it was a special day because of my hubby not because of how much food I could have. Besides, I have worked really hard this week to lose one measly pound and i wasn't going to blow it. Not today. Hopefully not tomorrow either. But definatly not today.

I wish I had enough time in the day to tell you how much you mean to me. Your comments and cheerleading bring so much joy to my life. You are always there when I have something happy or sad. You understand and you cheer me on. You have become so dear to me. I wish i had time to answer each of you or thank each one of you personally. You make me happier than cookies. And you know how much they mean to me. So for now, thank you, I love you and if you need me, I will be there for you, too.

1. When we were down in the dunes, I got a call from Kady's dr. SHe had an endoscopyt before Christmas and while he thought everything looked great, he did some biopsies of some small areas of inflammation. Anyway, he called and the spots are general inflammation, not CROHN's so here we are, 11 months after removal of her colon with NO CROHN'S disease (active)..... That is the best, best news!! It means what treatments she is on now is working. So relieved.
2. When we were down in the dunes, we had so much fun riding up these massive hills and playing and having fun. Then we went up a tiny little hill and this happened....
Frank was driving and it was the slowest tip over I could have ever imagined but I did kind of freak out. I was hanging sideways and Frank was cracking up so I unhooked my belt and just started stepping and clamboring everywhere I could to get out as fast as possible... Then I laughed. I might have stepped on his face, Im not sure. lol.
3.This is me driving:
4. And because I havent show you pictures of Cortez lately, he is now 8 months old and 60 pounds!!!! Him and Stitchy are very good friends now and love to play together. We call him "Bubs" which started out as Chubby Wubba and just ended up being Bubs. It fits him. He is a riot.
That's all for now, just a few things that I have wanted to tell you that I am just getting around to. Have a great night!

oh.my.god. I have crawled back to my computer to update on what just happened. I did all the video except for the 30 minute all over body thing. I just could not do it. Well, I mean I COULD have done it if I had to or there was a prize involved but the rest of the dvd is really good.
THere are modifications available but there were things I simply was unable to do because I can not be on my knees so I just made stuff up and kind of crunched or used my hand weight portion or generally flailed about. I wish there were more modifications for those of us with bad knees.
Oh yea, I also found out I apparantly have really weak wrists too (as in putting all my weight on them).
I think the video will be good for me to do the 28 day thing where you just do one part or another or if I can pick and choose a certain workout instead of trying to do all of it. You know, like it was INTENDED to be done, not like I decided I was gonna be super Jan or something and do all of it.
I am going to log my fitness stuff, take a shower (definatly necessary at this point) and spend the day staying away from cookies.
I hope you guys have a great saturday. Do something different today, laugh at yourself, write a blog, try a recipe or call a friend. Dont waste today.
