My hubby is headed home!

Friday, June 24, 2011

Thank God!!!! I am not good at this living single thing. I hate it actually. I am definitely one where absence makes the heart grow fonder. Omg! So today I have bits of errands to finish up before Joe gets off the plane. I'm still working on the darn pool! Every morning I wake and the pressure is way down again. Uggggg! Next house....NO POOL! Anyway. I rocked the food choices again! Almost at bathing suit body! Another week of this consistency and I'll be there. Went to my crazy Zumba class last night! Omg went a little crazy there. :) Glad they turn the lights down :). Just boogied my brains out. I can't believe how much I depend on my workouts now to get rid of stress! I actually counted down the minutes until my class for a couple hours. I took the kids to Friendly's for lunch and then bowling. The weather is so not cooperating for these kids who want to celebrate school being out. They had fun though. I didn't even have ice cream at Friendly's! Thanks Sparkies for being here! Your awesome!
OK adding to my blog some whining..
.Feeling really down right now about the pool and sitting very impatiently for husband to get back. Picking him up at 7:30. It's only 4:30. Ugggg... This weather is bringing me down and this day has felt like a week. Trying to stay great with eating but when I'm like this all I want to do is eat. I had a small chef salad for lunch and greek yogurt for breakfast. I had some plain activia yogurt for snack and a handful of cashews. I'm going to try to keep it together.

    I would have split one ice cream three ways!
Areyou gonna continue exercising even when Hubby is home?
OK to take a break, but don't drift too far away!

    Oh no, not even a little ice cream at Friendly's for a fellow Sparker who no longer has them in her area? You were right to do so but now I'll be thinking about it...

Hi friends!

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Another rainy day here. Adam is sleeping in and Josh is only in school until 10am. They will be getting their awards and then they are done! We had dinner with our good friend who is fighting lymphoma. I think it was great for hm to get together. He was very gabby and it was great to see him. Adam and Tori picked up their scripts for the play. They were soooo happy. So fun. Another day of stellar eating. Greek yogurt for breakfast, chop salad for lunch, cottage cheese and cashews for snack and chicken caprese salad minus cheese for dinner. I'm feeling really good. I've been doing planks and upper arm strength training since Monday and already feel stronger. I'm glad I brought it back into be daily routine. I'm really feeling more like me these days. I'm getting more done in the house which is a big step. I've haven't worked on my routine lately but thats ok. I will bring it back. Just needed to step away. I'm going to my crazy fun Zumba class tonight. Can't wait! Joe seems to be doing well in Colorado. Can't wait for him to be home. Hope my Sparkies are having a great day!

Dark day here

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Rainy weather here. I ate so good yesturday. I did have a couple glasses of wine with dinner but what the heck ! Had such a great night with the girls. Sometimes I just need to be around my extended family. We had a blast. We went to Olive Garden. I could've eaten very bad! Lots of pasta and cheese entres were being ordered. Guess what I ordered? Salmon with broccoli! 550 calories! Yeah! Thats right! I was awesome. It was really good too. Just what I was looking for. I ended up sleeping pretty well considering Joe isn't here. The wine probably helped :). I had a grilled chicken salad for lunch and some cottage cheese for a snack later. I've had some plain greek yogurt for breakfast. Appt with therapist went well. I have some stuff to work on. We will see. I have stuff to do here. Will work on that. Have a great day!

HI tuesday.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

So I made it through my cranky days with no binging. Thats always a good thing. I even went to my hip hop dance class last night. It was awesome! Even though I want to learn this routine I need these classes. It's great to go and let someone else be in charge. To just dance and see positive friends. I love talking to them about what works nutrionally for them. All positive. The pool is almost ready. One more vaccuum through and we should be good. First day of summer today! Yeah! My favorite season! Adam is done today and Josh will be done Thursday. We ordered our fridge yesturday. While Joe is in Colorado the boys and I will work on bringing everything that we will getting rid of from the basement up the the garage. Friday we will be getting a big dumpster and will be able to purge ourselves of all the stuff in this house that isn't needed. I will love this! Next week we will have the basement recarpeted and the new kitchen flooring put in. Yeah! Stomache is sooooo much better already. I should never mess with my lactose intolerance. The protein bars I tried had whey in it and I guess it really effected me. I was having a couple a day and in a week ...OMG lets just say I felt awful. So much better. I'm going to my therapist today. I will be happy to see her. I think I will actually be able to work on me today. I can use it! Hope all my Sparkies have a great first day of summer! Rock that bathing suit!

Ok, its Monday

Monday, June 20, 2011

Today is my anniversary! Unfortunately we will barely be seeing each other :(. He works until 6pm and has a boy scout meeting with Josh at 7pm. I'm going to my Zumba class at 6:45pm. Then he has to pack for Colorado. He leaves early tomorrow morning and won't be back until Thursday night. :( Happy for him because this is a huge deal for him career speaking. There were only 12 salesmen in the country invited to this meeting and they will be discussing pretty high level decisions in the company. I'm so proud of him. Will miss him. We aren't very good at this sleeping apart thing. I will deal. I will deal without binging! I don't even feel like eating bad. Which is good. I just can't seem to get this weight off though. I had about 3 days feeling smaller and then I feel bloated again. I don't know... Have any of my Sparkies ever eaten Atkins protein bars? My instructor says it fills her up without the carbs. I've been eating them for about a 5 days and I'm not sure about them. Let me know if you have any opinions. I'm going back to my classes regularly and I'll work on my song a little at a time. I've been working on the song for about an hour a day and then trying to hit my classes and I've been getting discouraged. My classes give me such accomplishment and I love the women so I can't give them up. It make take a bit longer to get my routinge together but I need my classes. Adam and I sent Mike heart felt texts yesturday for all he has done for us these past 6 months. Father's day seemed a good day for it. He thought it was very nice. I am looking forward to my appointment with my therapist tomorrow. Food choices have been soooooo good. It's just sooooo frustrating when I'm not seeing the progress I want. I know I'm getting restless because we are leaving for Florida on July 10th and I don't feel ready for bathing suit on beach. I'll just keep plugging along. I guess. Have a good day friends!

    That is great and look at how beautiful you are rather than how far it is still to get where you are wanting to be. I think your husband deserved every good wish for fathers day emoticon
