It's been awhile since I have time to update things. Between work and summer activities I haven't been spending time online like I normally do. But even though I haven't been here, I have been keeping up with eating right and getting my exercise. I have made it to the half way point of my weight loss goals. Yeah!!! 15 down and 15 to go. While things are going good, I miss my time here. I wish that there were more hours in the day.
Last month we got the house resided, and this past weekend we started painting the trim. While it is truely exercise, it was hard work. Sanding and painting and waiting for it to dry, and then painting again.
I have been sticking with the Wii Fit. In fact this month I blew by my goal of 500 by more than 150 min, thats right I logged over 650 min this month. I don't think that I have ever logged that much time on here. I ordered EA Active today so I can step up my workout soon.
That is all for now, hopefully everyone else is doing good. TTFN

Work is still overwhelming. Last week I barely had time to keep up with anything. I didn't track anything and barely had was checking on the message boards. I have gone back to time management tactics that I have not used since college. So I am hoping that I will be able to catch up at work, leaving more free time. I saw some progress today, I actually crossed more off my to do list than got added. I tracked everything that I ate today, and got 45min of Wii time in. I noticed on the Wii that things are getting easier to do and I am not as sweaty as I once was. I think that I may upgrade from Wii fit to Wii active. I need to look into it more. I love the boxing and hula hooping, but since it is the only workout that I can seem to stick with and it is getting too easy, I think it is time to step it up.
It is only Tuesday, but I am already looking forward to the weekend. I have a busy weekend planned. On Saturday I am heading to my parents house for my cousin's bridal shower , my great niece's first birthday party , and father's day with my dad. And then Sunday my in-laws are coming over to my house for dinner. So a lot of travel and things to do. It will be a lot to do in only two days. If I can only make thru the week.
Well, it is time to relax and then off to bed to sleep up for another busy day

Well, this week is finally over. I had the worst week ever. My work is starting the process of moving to a new location. They are building a new building and it is almost done. So we are starting the process of packing up and moving all the offices and labs. It has been so busy and hectic and I know that it is only going to get worse before it gets better. I have been pretty absent here cause I just don't have the time at work to get on here and when I get home, I am too tire to look at the computer very long. I have been keeping up with exercise and making sure that I am eating right, but the long days are starting to get to me. So if I am not around much everyone knows the reason, and I will be back when things settle down. Hopefully soon.

Well my Mom is home from the hospital and feeling much better, not happy that she can't drive for two weeks, but happy to be home. The holiday is over, and even though I over ate most of the weekend, I am not going to beat myself up about it. I am just moving on. Life here is finally getting back to normal even though I am not sure how normal that is. I started exercising again last night. I spent almost an hour doing boxing on the Wii Fit. I can feel it in my back today. I even started tracking my food again. Last week taught me a few things about myself. In some ways I am stronger than I thought and in some ways I am not. I think that I big part of this journey is learning things about yourself. And the test that were thrown at me this past week showed my a lot. I made through a lot of stress and a holiday without going back to my old ways. I know that I can do this, even if I fall a few times.
That is my update into my life

Girls weekend away turned out to be just the thing I needed. It was a great relaxing time. And as it turned out I needed more than I knew, Monday was so busy at work that I never seemed to be able to get ahead. And late last night I got a phone call that my mom was rushed to the hospital. She spent the night in the ICU. I am too far away to get home to make sure that everything is okay. I spent the whole night tossing and turning trying to get some sleep, but not getting any. I talked to my sister and dad several times today, and she is doing much better today, but it is time like this that I wish I lived closer to my parents. And work again was so busy today, and with getting no sleep I am sure how I made it through.
As soon as finish here, I am heading down to workout with the Wii, until I get another call with an update on my Mom.
