School Supplies - An Outrage

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Last night I had to purchase school supplies for my daughter, who is in the 11th grade. Her teachers all specified 2" binders. Do these teachers have any idea how much binders cost - $7.99/each. If they had to buy 6 of these, maybe they wouldn't require them. I spent a whopping $70.00 last night at office max on just binders and tab dividers. Sheesh - I'm not only outraged, I am broke.

Did manage to improve my mood with a core rhythms workout DVD.

  


Gym Last Night

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

People always say the "first step is the biggest" and I leaped to the gym last night. It was so crowded, I guess because it was raining outside, but I managed to ride bike for 30 minutes, while I finished reading my book, Shutter Island. Boy was that book weird and creepy - but good, can't wait for the movie.
Today I started back to walking 30 minutes at lunch like I used to, and boy, do I feel so much better after having done that.
I just feel so darn good right now - Yeah for me - I just need to stay enthusiastic about it. I am glad I have SP to share these small steps with, because no on in my inner circle really thinks it's that much of a big deal - BUT IT IS TO ME !!

  


TOTALLY MOTIVATED

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Today starts a new chapter - this is my favorite time of year, routine gets back to normal. School started today and with that comes my recommittment to getting in shape. I promised myself I would work out at the gym 3 days a week, regardless. I had grown lazy over the summer, I hate hot weather. But now is the time. I'm gonna do it - work on "me" - I'm totally motivated.

  


I splurged

Friday, September 04, 2009

I had to splurge and have a hot dog from the football game last night, by splurging I mean that I did include that in my calories for the day. Why is it that ballpark dogs taste so much better than homemade. Hmmmmm!
I enjoyed my hotdog sitting on the bleachers under an umbrella in the rain. Something as simple as that is what makes life so good - It's the little things in life .
