Well, not really.. at least not yet.
So far the kids have been healthy. My husband is a completely different story. He started being ill on Monday...chills, fever,etc. I ended up skipping my exercise, sending him to bed early and doing the whole bed and bathtime routine with the kids. That's not a problem ..the kids are good... but it made for a long night because they were hard to get settled.
I ended up coming home from work early last night (I was supposed to work until 9pm, but got off at 7:30pm) Again -- hubby to bed early and me handling the kids bedtime routine. But this time I went down on the treadmill and walked for 50 mintues after everyone was in bed. Ah the bliss of taking time for myself! Hubby had been to a minute clinic and was told he has the flu.
Today he went to work for part of the day...but he came home early. He's still got the fever and chills. He's sick of being sick already. Again, I've sent him to bed early (about 7pm for him) and only just now got both kids asleep.
I know I need to get my butt downstairs on that treadmill. But I'd really, really like to just sit.
In all honesty I should try and do at least a little jogging (or running ...but at the pace I go I guess its just a jog --lol) But I don't know if I have it (jogging) in me tonight. I guess any movement is better than none, right?
I've taken care of everyone else. And the exercise would be taking care of myself... I know that. But why is it so darned hard to overcome my own inertia?

I guess I was overdue. lol
Now bear in mind that I am keeping my doctor NSV and my clothing NSV firmly in mind.
Last week I gained .2 but wasn't that upset as I had salty things at my nephew's birthday party. This past week I believe I kept things under control, did my exercise, drank the water, etc. Even the times I indulged in Doritos, I tracked (at least on the Weight Watchers etools... I haven't been so good with tracking on SP.)
I gained another .2 this week.
Realistically, I know this *really* isn't that big a deal.. .4 is less than a half a lb. But I wasn't expecting it this week... so I got really, REALLY ticked off. And I'm not proud to admit it, but I threw a big ol' hissy-fit/temper tantrum.
BUT.... I'm not giving up. That never entered my head. The tantrum is over and now I'm trying to think of what I can do this week to shake things up so next Tuesday shows a loss at the scales.

My pants for work have been quite baggy for a good long time. But I really dislike clothes shopping and with kids and work... well it was hard to find time to get out and try things on, much less buy. And since I wasn't 100% certain what size I was, I wanted to try them on before I bought.
Well, I finally made time yesterday to shop.
My old work pants were a women's size 20. (And I joke that the "W" in the size.. 20W stands for wide-a$$.) Bad joke, I know.
Well... 16W is a nice fit. (A coworker of mine thinks they look a little baggy in the belly..but I think they fit just fine, really. I didn't even THINK to try on anything smaller...if it had been too tight it would have been discouraging. I think 16W is good for now. :)
Two sizes down. Yeah, I was grinning like a fool. I bought 2 pair: black and navy, figuring I can alternate between the two..and no point in getting many more when I intend to keep losing.
Of course, I'm not sure how low the women's sizes go... or what I'd be in when they are finally too big.
Its a nice problem to have to ponder. :)

For listening enjoyment I will listen to anything, really... country, rock, etc... but some music lends itself to certain activities, I think.
I want to come up with my own workout mix for the treadmill/running. For strength-training/lifting I like heavy metal, but I've got different tunes in mind for running. Here are some songs I have in mind so far (and will entertain any and all suggestions)
We Will Rock You - Queen
Oh Sherry - Steve Perry
Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood
Born to be wild - Steppenwolf
Mony, Mony - Billy Idols version
Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
Dancing with Myself - Billy Idol
I'm So Excited - Pointer Sisters
New Attitude - Patti Labelle
Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
My old mp3 player bit the dust too.. so suggestions for a decently priced one that will "shuffle" music also appreciated.
