    Sometimes we just have to make the decision to move our bodies away from the computer screen. Your new exercise schedule sounds GR8! Stop in from time to time and let us all know how it going.

    Way to go Kitty. And yes, I agree, YOU come first. A little more exercise here, a little there, here a little, there a little, everywhere a little little, oh Mcdonald had a farm, E I E I O! This journey is all about what each of us needs to make it and you my friend are going to make it. Hugs.

    I had to take a posting break most of the semester, so I certainly understand. Get your new routine settled and then jump back in to the conversations.

Kicking Butt And Loving It

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I have to admit...i thought i would never see the day...normally i cannot get enough to eat... i am ok, not great, but ok during the day...at night...i plan on eating double portions... i've been doing it now for 2 weeks...cause i know i am usually hungrier in the evening, i plan for it...the one good thing about tracking your food intake...you can see where you weakest... the bad thing is...i have been under estemating the calories and have been under my minimum so far the last couple days...well...i finally thought today i would meet the calories i am suppose to get...let me tell ya...i never thought i would see that problem...lol.... so this afternoon, i put into the tracker everything...and what i was making for dinner... double the normal serving size since i had it planned out that way... right...and for once this week... wohoo!!! i got the calories i was suppose to... BUT wait... before we all get too excited....i...uh...only ate half that...meaning...i only ate the normal size... i'm back to tracker...and uhg...i'm under again!!!! again...i never thought i would see the day this was a problem...the good news though...since i am such a big girl...i get more calories than the normal person...so my going under is still more calories than i will be able to have once i get closer to goal weight...so i'm not dipping too badly...and i see where the problem is and am working toward getting it fixed....though laughing about the new problem...lol...

on the upside...with my new work out schedule-riding bike now for 20 minutes 5 days a week, and walking on the weekend-and strength training 3 times a week, and still the daily wall push ups...which i think may be why my body is not as hungry now for food... i have lost 2 lbs...wohoo!!!!

now...back to the drawing board to make sure i am getting enough calories each day emoticon

And She Got Silver

Friday, April 17, 2009

Ok...to explain how "she" got to this point.... dd2 was in a competition for her early childhood education class...her specialty was interviewing....now mind you...this child has been looking for a job for over a year...and has had exactly 1 interview...in which she screwed it up when the person asked.... and why was you suspended...and her answer was...self defense...because i'm not anyone's punching bag emoticon so her going to state for interviewing...has been quite funny.... she got through city and made it to state...in which i am soooo very proud of her... it was yesterday... and to be honest...i'm surprised she got silver...see...they asked her what kind of personality types will you not work with...to which she answered...oh i can work with anyone...except those mothers who think their kids are God's gift to this earth (uh...don't all us mothers think that of our children...lol) ok...strike one... then they ask her what age group will she not take care of... her answer.... oh, i love kids of all ages....except when they turn 11 and they think they are teenagers and know it all (uh...funny...this from the child that was born thinking she knew it all..lol) so...she didn't get gold...and won't be going to nationals...but...i have to ask myself...uh...what did the bronze do to get a lower score than dd2??? lol...

all in all...she was thrilled just to have made it to state...and i am happy my baby girl will be home very very soon :)
