Off To Palm Springs

Friday, May 14, 2010

I only have a few minutes before I have to go get my little one and get ready to leave for Palm springs. I'm so looking forward to lying by the pool tomorrow and doing nothing (after I work out, of course!!) I'm planning on bringing a lot of weight watcher snacks with me so I don't get into trouble. This week has been pretty good and I don't want to ruin it. I am not taking my scale with me (even though I want to) and I won't find out til Monday morning as to how I'm doing. Oy, wish me luck. I'm tied to that scale.

I took my princess to the doctor yesterday and he told me she had some kind of viral thing, but it's the end, so she should be good to go. Hah!! Already got a call this morning from the office (9:25 am) that's she crying her stomach hurt. Well, it's now 11:30 and I'm going to get her. The secretary told her that I had to finish up my stuff and I'd come get her. Interesting to see if her stomach hurts in Palm Springs at all. I'll let you guys know.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I know I'm planning on it.

    Aww fun! I was in Palm Desert for work the weekend before last, and of course it wasn't as hot as I wanted. But this weekend is should be nice and sizzling for ya.

(I live about an hour and a half west of Palm Springs, so I have been many times.)

What a Day!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

So, today was the first day I got to spend with my son since he came home on Sunday. He wanted to go out to lunch. Oy, out to lunch? Couldn't deny him that. He wanted to go to the sprint store, so we figured we'd go somewhere near there. Well, there was Rubio's. I told him, "Wait a sec. Have to check out what I could eat." I went on Dottie's Weight Loss Zone and tried to see what was low in points. Not much. I could have a HealthMex Chicken Salad or taco. Got to Rubio's and they didn't have any HealthMex salad. So, it was the chicken taco with a side salad, no dressing, of course. I was so proud of myself. 4 points for the whole thing. Could you believe that?
After the Sprint store, we had time to waste, so we went for coffee and to REI. As we were getting back into the car, I got a call from my daughter's school. She's back in the office again with a stomach ache. This is the 2nd day in a row. Don't know what to do with her. She complains her stomach hurts, but she seems absolutely fine. Any one have any suggestions? I feel like I'm being a mean mom, but, she can't stay home. I think her teacher is getting a bit upset, too.

Until then-

    1st way to go on eating it is easy to make the right choices when we have too

as for as Racheal, two things, has she been going # 2, and did she eat a good breakfast in the morning,

These are the two things that I notice with Shawn, Most is not eating and enough and he is having hunger pains. I don't think they know what realy hunger pains are.

Just a thought

    Amazing that you did so well at Rubios! I don't know if I could have done it!

Does she know that being sick is no fun! You have to stay in bed ALL day and can only read. You cannot watch TV, play outside, or play with toys because you are sick and you need rest. My little one learned real quick that school is much more fun. If he has a fever than he's too miserable to care and willing to lay in bed all day.

    I used to complain of being sick and go home when I didn't like my teacher or was being bullied.... Just a thought.

Way to go on your eating today, you did great! I loved DWLZ when I was on WW, so much easier than tracking it all yourself in the books. Glad you son is home and hope you find out what's up with your little one!

Woo Hoo (for the second try of this blog!)

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Today, I went to weight watchers. Tuesday's are my official weigh in days. Happy? Nope. Ecstatic? you betcha. I lost 2 lbs this week. That's a total of 4.8 lbs. Hey, maybe I'll be out of the 20's sooner rather than later. I can start to picture myself in my bikini. Who knows, maybe I'll even post a picture in the summer. I'm feeling so motivated. I want to do this and keep it off.
I had blogged on Sunday that I was helping my daughter start and finish her report on yellow jackets. At 9:20, we were done. However, my poor baby woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well. But, I was a good mom and brought in her report Monday morning and picked up her homework for the week. I was stuck at home all day yesterday, except to go grocery shopping. Lucky me. And even with that, I stayed within my points. It was hard, but I managed. It's hard being stuck at home. Too many temptations.

Here's a picture of my little princess. She was supposed to wear this on Mother's Day but it was way too cold. I figured I'd post it instead.

Until next time-

    Great Job and Congrats! Right now I can only dream to be back in the 120's much less the teens...but I was there about 10 years ago and eventually I can get there again - hopefully by Christmas as my dream/goal is to be able to wear my little black "Millenium" dress again! For now, I finally again have about 1.5 lbs to get back down into my next 10 lb range. Trying to get there for Monday as I have to weigh in then with another group! Thanks for the inspiration! emoticon

    Two pounds? Awesome! I'll bet you were excited! I would be too!!

Your girl is beautiful! I am sure she is a princess with all those boys around. Then again they probably make her pretty tough and able to hold her own.

Beautiful Day!

Sunday, May 09, 2010

My day started off with a wonderful 2 hour hike with my gym buddies. Came home and helped my husband clean up in the garage a bit. Then, off to my nephew's t-ball game. Oh how cute they are. He had a smile on his face each time we cheered for him when he was batting. Then, off to lunch with the family. The restaurant didn't have a menu on-line so I couldn't figure out what I wanted. My hubby and I shared a Greek salad and seared ahi tuna panini. Very good. After that, I was off to USC to move my son back home. That was a nice present. My husband made dinner, seafood gumbo, which I had a little of. Now, I'm helping my daughter with her report on yellow jackets which is due tomorrow. Not her fault. We had a busy week. And hey, she's only in first grade.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!

What A Week!

Saturday, May 08, 2010

Ok, this is my third time trying to type and post this blog. Am I not supposed to? I had such a great week and this is the first time I am able to post. Unlike last week, I was excited to go to weight watchers and weigh in. I lost 1.2 lbs. and didn't have to pay. I'm in the 20's again. Yeah me!! That night (tuesday), my husband and I went to a charity dinner, United Friends of the Children (for Foster Care). We were sitting at table 1 which was smack in front. Well, Seal performed and I was able to reach out and touch him. That's how close I was. It was amazing. However, not as amazing as how well I did at dinner. No bread or wine. Salad with a drizzle of dressing, 1/2 of the meat, vegies and some potatoes. That's right everyone, no dessert. I said, "No thank you". On the way home, I ate my mini ww bar. Wednesday night was the Dodger game. Free food: 2 small slices of carved turkey, lots of grilled vegies, some salad, and about 8 peanut M&M's. On the way home, a mini ww bar. Proud of myself, you betcha. Friday night, my daughter's girl scout troop had a backyard campout. The girls are 6-7. I had to be there b/c I'm one of the leaders. Oy, what a night. Not much sleep, but the girls had a blast. My friend and I brought our 1 point hot dogs and 2 point buns. I did eat some chips and had about 4 marshmellows. Other then that, I did eat a lot of watermellon.

saturday morning, I wasn't going to eat at the campout b/c i wanted to go home and weight myself. Couldn't wait. I was starving. I had a 1/2 a bagel and seedless (it wasn't) tangerine. Went home and saw that I was down 1.5 lbs. How did that happen???

Well, this was the day I was looking forward to the whole week. I was meeting other SparkPeople!! How exciting is that?? My friend Pagona picked me up and I got to meet Renee first. We got to shmooze in the car. Then, we got to the restaurant and there is Judy, McKenzie, Diedre and Angela. How great it was to put faces to names and see everyone. We sat and chatted for over 2 hours. It was so much fun. Everyone told about their lives, what they do, where they've been, etc. We all bonded so much. We're even talking about doing some 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathons and whole marathons together. How great is that!!! Hopefully, we're going to get together soon and have some more fun. Diedre's boyfriend, John, took pictures for us. You should have seen us hotties posing outside. We were blocking the walkway.

And, here's to our lovely photographer:

Can't wait to our next outing!!

    Is that Parker's Lighthouse in Long Beach? I used to live in Long Beach and worked at the Aquarium right across the way.

I am now up in the Inland Empire. Is everybody that met up in the LA or OC area?
