Hoping for a good Sunday.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

We went to my high school girlfriends daughter's graduation party yesturday. It was nice. She is a sweetheart. I ate so well. I had some carrot sticks, celery and chicken. NO CAKE! It wasn't chocolate so that was kinda easy :). I did have 3 Corona Lights and a couple vodka with arnold palmer. Ok that was a bit too much. I know. Summer is here :). Will do better with that today. We are going to my neices Christening today. I think a little hangover will be good for me. It will keep me distracted from what I may see. Taking that minute by minute. I will make great food choices today. I'm still doing my planks and upper arm strength and it feels really good. I'm able to keep the pose much longer in one week. Yeah! I will start my Zumba song tomorrow again. I feel better about it. Hope my Sparkies have a great day!


NY has made it possible for my son to marry...when he's not a teenager :)

Saturday, June 25, 2011

Well I said all was needed for Adam to come out and things would be changing here in NY! We watched it happen on television last night! We all cheered and went to bed very content. Not only for that amazing awesome announcement but because the man of the house was home :). I was feeling very weak yesturday. I wanted to binge soooo bad. I made it through, with the help of my Sparkies. I felt so much better this morning. I'm so happy Joe is home. That was not a good time. Going to Zumba this morning and a graduation party later today. I hope the weather holds out for them. Have a good day my friends!

    Great news! I'm from Massachusetts and I think people saw that the world didn't end when we allowed same sex marriage here. I hope more and more states will see the light.

    God bless the state of New York! I wish the voters of California had been so enlightened.

And yes, DO remind Adam that he still needs to wait awhile. I know how teenagers can be, believe me.

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!
