Gee, didn't we JUST celebrate New Year's?! Hardly seems possible that in just a month or so, we'll start seeing Christmas decorations go up in the stores and are already seeing Halloween costumes!
I'm sure my neighbors are pleased with me now. I finally mowed the back yard. The only thing that was growing was the "water grass", which was about 2 feet taller than the rest of it so I could easily see where I'd mowed! The rest of it is dormant...
In the past, I always used Labor Day as a "jumping off point", so to speak, for the rest of the year. Which means that I've GOT to get in gear and start watching what I eat/exercise. My main problem is consistency! Well, really, it's that I'm L-A-Z-Y, but I can call it a consistency problem if I want to!!
Have a great weekend, all!! I'm working the Jerry Lewis Telethon on Sunday night & Monday. I used to stay up as long as I could when I was a little kid to watch it. It's a lot more fun to be involved in it!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

Okay, I don't know WHERE the year was that I USED to have, but I've got 5 MONTHS until I turn the "Big 4-0"! That means no more procrastinating, I've GOT to get serious!! I went to the gym tonight and did an hour on the treadmill. I need to start working in weight training in the next few days. My arms used to be at least SOMEWHAT toned, but now, not so much!
I have been better about watching what I eat. I took one of my "healthier" frozen meals to my temp job for lunch today. For dinner, I had Grape Nuts and a peach. I did have some ice cream afterwards, which I will pay for later, I'm sure. (I think I've developed a bit of lactose intolerance in my "old age".)
At any rate, I sure DON'T want to look like I do now 5 months from today, so I've GOT to quit making excuses! 3 small goals I'm making for myself:
1. Do SOME form of exercise 5 days a week (the WiiFit counts!)
2. Be in bed NO LATER THAN midnight on the week days!
3. Cut down on eating out. (Getting better about this...sorta)
Have a wonderful day, all!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Well, I PLANNED to hit the gym tonight, but 6 little words changed all that! Came home tonight to read on the Facebook status of my friend from Charlotte (who I'd just written about yesterday)..."my father passed away this morning." Those 6 little words have completely taken away all the energy I had. Thankfully my friend had gone home for a family reunion this past weekend and was spending the week in upstate NY with his parents, so he was there when his Dad died. It's rough enough to lose a father when you expect it, but it's GOT to be SO much harder when it's sudden! Haven't had a chance to have a full conversation with my friend yet to get any details, but his Dad had been having some health issues in the past.
I just wish I'd have had the opportunity to meet his Dad. (If I'd been smarter, I would have! LONG story...) The hard part about all of this for me is not being able to be there, but I know that family will draw near and support the family. The toughest part is when everyone leaves. Not sure if my friend will remain in NY with his mom and just find a job there or return to Charlotte. If I go see him for my pre-birthday weekend, I'd get to meet his Mom if he stays in upstate NY...
Had a fairly decent day in the eating department. I had ONE jawbreaker from the loads of candy at my temp job. That was probably why I was a little more tired today. I wasn't amped up on sugar!!
Heading to bed rather early, but I'm exhausted and I wasn't the one who lost a parent!!

Went grocery shopping tonight. The only "bad" thing I bought was a package of Vanilla Creme Wafers. Probably wouldn't have even gotten those, but Wal-Mart decided they just HAD to put the bread across from the COOKIES!! I did pass up many other things I've gotten in the past.
Decided that I'm going to take a trip somewhere for my 40th birthday. (Actually most likely the weekend before, since my birthday's on a Tuesday) I officially have 159 days before my 40th, so I've GOT to get serious! I went to Charlotte, NC for the 40th birthday of a friend of mine when he turned 40 back in 2008, so I may go see him again for mine. We'll just have to see what happens!
Must exercise more, though! The nice thing is that my friend isn't someone who cares if I have a few extra pounds on me, but I do. So, I'm doing this ALL for me!
Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY, all!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
