Time To Update!

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Wow, looks like I completely spaced off September!

Lots to update!

1. Probably the biggest development in September will actually take place in October. After 2 1/2 years of living with my Mom rent-free, I am moving out! I was able to get a one-bedroom place at the public housing complex here in town. It will be great having my independence back again but it will also be nice being close enough that I can come home for a meal or two! I officially move around the 15th of October.

2. I've been doing Plexus Slim almost every day since the first of September. I haven't seen movement on the scale to this point, but my clothes are fitting better! All of my jeans are now slip-ons! I need to invest in a belt! I do need to be better about drinking water, since that's one of the biggest things for success.

3. I haven't been as good about the exercising. I really like T25 but haven't done it consistently. That will change! I'm also doing a program through my gym here in town that is a 30-Day Ab Challenge. We'll see how that goes!

Other than that, my October is going to be CRAZY! My Sweet Adelines chorus is heading to Baltimore to International Competition in November so October will be spent rehearsing, moving to my new place, rehearsing, Homecoming for my college, and even more rehearsing!

Have a wonderful week, all!

  Enjoy your independence, but be sure to check in on Mom. She'll probably miss you. emoticon

    Having a place of your own will be nice, but it sounds good that you will still be close.

25,000!!

Sunday, August 10, 2014

When I post this blog, I will have finally reached 25,000 SparkPoints!

I'm amazed it took me this long to achieve that! When I first joined SparkPeople back in 2010, I was faithful about logging in every day. I had a SparkStreak of several hundred days before I missed a day. I was unemployed during that time and had time to read all of the great articles and advice. Now that life has gotten busy with work and all my other activities, I don't get the chance to log in like I want.

This will be my "Back on Track" week. I'm going to start my T25 on Monday morning. I'm also going to severely curb the pop habit I've gotten back into. I was doing Diet Mountain Dew for a long time but lately it's been Coke, sometimes up to 3 a day! UGH! I just need to get more sleep at night so I won't have to worry about needing caffeine to keep me going.

Have a Super Sunday, all!

    Glad you are ready for a new groovy time on SP. I do think logging in and reading the blogs and articles are the support we need to stay in the program and make it work for us! emoticon

Ready to Rock August!

Friday, August 01, 2014

July was kind of a wash out for me in terms of exercising/eating right. Getting sick just threw me off! emoticon

August is going to be MUCH better! After watching the infomercial for a LONG time, I finally decided to order my own Focus T25. I have a friend who has done it and she said it really kicked her butt! Looking forward to seeing results! I have 3 months until my Baltimore trip (YIKES!) and 4 1/2 months until Christmas, so I should have plenty of time to get it done! Looking forward to getting one of those t-shirts when I'm done!

Hard to believe the start of school is just around the corner! I have to laugh every time a teacher whines about having to go back already. Umm, SOME of us don't have MONTHS off during the summer! Oh well, they definitely deserve it.

Looking forward to the start of football emoticon season. (American football, not soccer)

Have a great evening all and a wonderful weekend! Let's rock August!!

emoticon GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Are You Kidding Me?!

Saturday, July 12, 2014

I spent the entire day at work on Thursday sneezing and blowing my nose. It was RAW by the time I left work! I became very skilled in driving with my knees because I kept sneezing and blowing my nose while driving.

I took 24-hour Allergy medicine around 1:30 on Thursday. Didn't work. Took another one, didn't work. Now, I've always heard the one thing that allows you to tell if you're dealing with a cold or allergies is the color of the mucus. (GROSS! emoticon ) Well, I learn something every day. My brother happens to be a doctor and when I told him about what was going on, he said that viral colds can act like allergies. Could be why allergy meds weren't working! When I got home Thursday night from my meeting, I took my temperature. That told me all I needed to know! You don't run a 100.8 temperature with allergies! So, for future reference, clear mucus doesn't ALWAYS mean allergies!

A SUMMER COLD?! REALLY!?! I don't have TIME for a summer cold! I have too much to do! My mom went on vacation on Thursday, I'm stuck with 3 cats, 3 dogs, gardens to water and now this! My nose FINALLY quit running and I can breathe out of it. A feat, considering what I went through on Thursday. Stayed home from work yesterday. Today, I've just got a nagging cough that won't go away! I've taken Delsym (generic), used my inhaler and some other medicine the doctor gave me. Still coughing! Grrrr...

Absolutely NO energy to do anything other than sit around. I walked up to get more kleenex and medicine at the store on the corner and it was all I could do to make it up there!

Hopefully with more sleep tonight it'll be all better soon! I can't miss another day of work!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

We Interrupt this Habit...

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Well, this past Saturday STUNK!

1. I drove 3.5+ hours to Kansas City to watch my favorite baseball team only get 3 hits and lose 2-1.

2. The people I wanted to visit after the game weren't home.

3. The BBQ place I REALLY wanted to eat at was PACKED so I didn't eat there.

4. Went to visit a friend and my cell phone ended up falling out of my purse onto his front lawn. He found it Sunday morning which meant I had to make a 2-hour round-trip drive to go pick it up!

AND, to top it all off, I ended up with a BAD sunburn on my back and shoulders! I had applied sunscreen, but didn't RE-apply it!

Soooo, I've taken a few days off from the gym since the only thing that I can wear comfortably with my clothes is my strapless bra and it doesn't work well at the gym. Hopefully this will quit hurting SOON!

Hard to believe this time next week will be the 2nd of July. My Dad would have turned 70 on the 3rd of July. He was a major pyro when it came to fireworks! emoticon

Must head to bed now...at least I can sleep comfortably. I've had sunburns so bad I couldn't.

emoticon GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

    Hoping your week turns out to be better than your Saturday and the sunburn is gone by now. emoticon
