Why is it when I set my mind to something and am determined to do something, life throws me a few curve balls and keeps me from what I was determined to do???
I haven't worked out since Monday!!! UGH. I'm so disappointed in myself. Tuesday I got side tracked by school work and phone calls about jobs. I got a part time job now with Hallmark. So I will be working a mere 3 days a week (maybe an hour or two). Right after that phone call I got a call from another merchandising company offering me a couple little gigs to go do, two for this week and one for July 24th. Then my ex calls me to say "The last time we talked you asked when you could get him again, so when do you want him?" Ok this is a man to "sticks to the court order" on visitation rights and do nots. So for him to call me and offer this?! I only get my son a week at the beginning of the summer and a week at the end. I just had him last week. Took him back to his dad (a 3.5 hr ride there and 3.5 hr ride home) on Friday! Then he tells me on Tuesday I can get him for another week as soon as I want him?! UGH!!!! Any way, I didn't go and work out during the day b/c Tuesday is usually deep water class for me at night. Well b/c of the weather, the pool was out... Which meant no working out for me on Tuesday!
Yesterday wasn't any better! I got up early did a bit of reading for school and then was like crap, I gotta get out of here b/c I had these two merchandising jobs to run and do and then I had to make that 3.5 hr. drive to get my son. So I got my two merchandising jobs completed, came home, reported them and then left to make that long drive. (Not to mention not having enough sleep b/c of the fire alarms!!!!)
Eating yesterday... let's see, I had a pack of nuts, then stopped for McDonald's and then nothing else except some raisins.. I didn't even cook dinner when I got home at 8:30 p.m. last night. I was tired!!! And to top it all off, its the worst week of the month for me and I'm in PAIN!!!!!!!! UGh!!!! I just want to curl up in my bed and not move! But, as usual I'm up at 5:30 a.m. so wanting to go back to bed today b/c its dark, rainy, gloomy kinda stay in bed weather! LOL But I have things that have to get done!

Ok so I'm a little too chipper for 7 am! But hey I've been up since 5:30 am!!! And I have NOT gone back to bed! Then again this is a normal thing for me now since my husband started this new job a couple of weeks ago. I used to just sleep in when he got ready for work at his other job. But now I'm a good housewife! LOL I get up make coffee and make his breakfast and pack his lunch. Then when he's out the door at 6:15, I begin my day with coffee!! Typically I'll go to the YMCA around 9 am for the 9:30 a.m. Water Cardio class. But on Tuesdays I go at night for the deep water class. I like the deep water better. I feel like I work harder in the deep water b/c I can't touch and have to keep myself afloat!
Well, all my excitement and chipperness is b/c my husband has decided he wants to start working out now. So now I go in the mornings for water cardio and then at night with him! Yesterday was the first of two workouts in a day! Last night I did the recumbent bike for 20 minutes and then I did the ab machine, seated leg press, chest press, leg extension and one other thing that I can't seem to remember right now. But I'm just proud of myself b/c I could have either sat home or sat and waited on him to finish at the Y, but I chose to work out. (When ever I say or hear work out, I instantly think of LMFAO's song.... ) I guess I'm gonna get this weight off of me one way or another!
Last night, one of the trainers told me that losing 2 pounds a week was ideal. Really!? Just 2 lbs a week!? Good lord this is gonna take me forever to lose the weight I wanna lose. But baby steps .... that's how its gonna happen.
Well since hubby and I will be going to the Y tonight and I have water class tonight, he will do the weights without me. I guess I should get myself in gear and go do the walking/weight routine this morning so I still get 2 workouts in today! So with that being said, time to fill up the water bottle and get going!
WOOHOO!!! Let's go SparkPeople!!!!!!

My youngest son has been visiting this week. (He lives with his dad full time so I only get him everyother weekend and 2 weeks during the summer!) I feel like I've been slacking off so bad since he's been here. But I took him with me Monday when I went to my water cardio class. Then tuesday I didn't go to class because I typically go at night on Tuesdays for the deep water class. But I had a telephone interview for a job at 7:30 p.m. so I didn't make the class, however, I still got some exercise in, b/c I took my son to our neighborhood pool. We swam for a while. Well, he swam around more than I did. But I did get about an hour's worth of swimming in. We were there from about 2:30 until 6:00 p.m.! With yesterday being the Fourth Of July, my husband was off of work so we did some work in the yard, mostly b/c HOA sent a letter saying we were in violation... UGh I despise HOA. Don't they realize its too freaking hot to be out in the yard cutting trees, grass and pulling weeds??? But any way, we cut tree limbs, pulled weeds and all that jazz.. But I still feel like I've been slacking a lot! I am watching what I eat and teaching my son at the same time that you gotta eat better so you don't have to worry about weight or medical issues like diabetes!
Well we're going to the YMCA again today for some more water cardio. I plan to work hard today!
