Hi friends!

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Thanks so much for wishing me a happy bday! Another busy day today. Food was great until yet another trip to ice cream stand. Ugggg... I've only eaten a cobb salad for lunch with no cheese. Greek yogurt for snack. I went to my hip hop class this morning. That was ok. We are headed to church and then to friends for dinner. Have a great night!

Happy Birthday To Me!!!!!!

Friday, August 19, 2011

Yup! It's my birthday! 41... yup... I have to say I'm very pampered on my bday. We all pampered each other unbelieveably on our bdays...:) I got breakfast in bed. Josh made french toast, Adam made an omlette, Joe went to Starbucks to get my favorite latte concoction. Fresh strawberries and a yogurt. Yup :). We all hung out in my bed and talked and caught up on the events of everyones night before. I did 3 songs in my awesome crazy rockin Zumba class last night. I did great! Everyone was great and some new people even told me they will start coming Wenesday mornings because they really enjoyed my songs! Wow! I was so worried about this class. These when want to rock out an awesome workout after a long work day. And they really liked me :). The director of classes who teaches this class was happy. She said I brought alot of awesome energy and definintely motivated everyone! She menitioned how I couldn't get the smile off my face even if I tried :). I do love it ! Yay! Adam was at Joe's house with the cast for a pizza party. Joe picked hhim up at midnight! Josh was at Connors house until 10:30! Joe and I did some shopping when he got home from work and stopped for him to have some dinner and I had a glass of wine. That was nice to spend some time together. I went to the dr. yesterday for a check up. I was there in Feburary because I wasn't loosing any weight and thought maybe we should do some blood work. Of course the blood work came back fine. Which is good. I find after all my working out and eating well I've only lost 6 pounds. Ugggg. I have lost 2 and a half sizes. That really is what matters but Ugggg.... Thats why I don't own a scale. I also wanted to talk to him about some dizziness I've been experiencing. He thought I could have stuffed up sinuses. He gave me Nazonex. Uggggg again... I took it before we went out shopping last night. I got very chatty, adjitated and anxious. Ugggg... I woke up parinoid and obsessing about things I can't control. Not a great way to start your birthday! I checked the Nazonex box and its a steriod. Omg! I have a very bad reaction to steriods! I'm not touching that again. I pray one day of it doesn't make me pack on some pounds. Thats been known to happen to me. So...I'm going to the cardiologist with Joe today. I'm having lunch with mom. We may go to the movies this afternoon with our friends and drinks later tonight while the kids hang together. Have a great day!

    Happy Birthday!! I know this isn't B-day talk but re: your sinuses-maybe try the Nedi Pot pourer. A special pourer you buy-you pour it in your nose and it cleans everyrhing out-sparkling great! I know many people that swear by it. And much better than jittery pills..I never liked taking them either-bad effect on me too!
Well enjoy your birthday weekend, pamper yourself..and have fun! emoticon

Congrats on rocking it at zumba last night.

Sorry to hear you only lost 6lbs but like you said it is the three sizes down that counts.

Happy B-day! How lovely to be spoiled so!

I start teaching September 1st!

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Wholly Molly! I thought this class would start later in the month. Ugggg... I'm Sparking early so I can get to my routine early and feel more confident. Right now confident is not what I'm feeling. Anyway....Yesturday was a good day. I taught 4 songs at my class. The boys and I met my friend Kate for lunch at Panera. I got a chopped chicken cobb salad. No cheese with balsalmic dressing. Yum. So fun conversation and a good visit. I was exhausted in the afternoon. I didn't realize how much more energy I expend when teaching than when I just enjoy a class. I headed to Target to get some essentials. Joe came home and had a hodge podge of dinners. The kids had a frozen pizza, Joe had a bowl of cereal and some peppers with hummus. I had salmon salad with broccoli and mango salsa. :) We met friends for mini golf and ice cream.....yes ice cream. I had a small dish of frozen yogurt. They didn't have really anything low sugar or low fat so that was I hope a better option. I have a physical this morning and we are meeting Joe and his sisters family, Mike and Josh's friend Connor for lunch. Should be fun. I'm going to teach 3 songs in class tonights crazy Zumba class. I hope that goes well. Have a great day!

Ugggg...sugar pusher was at it again!!!!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

We went to our friends daughters birthday party last night. She threw red velvet cake in my face. Ugggg... red velvet seems to be my kryptonite lately. Full of frosting. It was really good but come on! I'm actually sick of dessert! Not that I'm saying I didn't enjoy every bite but this is getting rediculous. Tonight we are supposed to meet friends for ice cream! I'm going to get a kiddie cup with sugar free ice cream but seriously! I'm going to Zumba this morning and doing one song. One seems good today. Other food choices were amazing. Lunch was a chef salad with no cheese. Dinner was baked chicken with Franks hot sauce, steamed zuccini and broccoli. Yum! Lots of water. Oh, you are not going to believe this! The voice coach of the musical posted that she had been in contact with the writer of the original broadway show 13. He said he wanted certain members of the cast to come to NYC to meet him!!!!! I know!!! Thats crazy!!!! She is working on getting a bus trip together to make it happen! We will see. There is auditions for High School Musical on Saturday and they are looking forward to it. I will work on my routine some more this afternoon. That should get me about 2 hours of exercise. That should help with last nights kryptonite. Have a great day!

    A new store opened up across the street from work and they have red velvet cupcakes there and they are ALL over my office all day everyday! I have told myself there are maggots in them... extreame I know but I havent eaten one yet!

I hope you find the strength to decline the cake! I know it is hard but you can do it... bring a healthier snack for you to events! If you are full you will be less likely to give in!

    Believe it or not.

I have never heard of red velvet cake until the Cake Boss was aired. I had to look it up on the computer...funny huh?

Keep moving and you'll do good. Also, make sure that you get small pieces. Nothing worse than having a saboteur around that says, "Oh, it's just one thing for the night!" emoticon

Yay Tuesday!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

So yesturday was a downer for me. I was very emotional and tired from all the excitement of the weekend. So I did what every girl knows is a cure all... I watched a mushy chick flick, cried my little eyes out drank alot of water and some hot tea. I did meet Joe for lunch. That was helpful. Joe brought home a bottle of really good wine and we all watched a funny stupid movie. That was perfect. Yay Tuesday because I went to my Zumba class and taught 3 songs! Ok it started out that way and before the class was done I did one more! Yay! The girls loved it and I felt pretty comfortable considering! Yay!!!! So moving on with my day. I have to say that even though I was emotional and coming down from my sugar high...I did not binge! Score! I had a salmon salad with mango salsa and broccoli. Joe brought home chinese for the kids. He ordered steamed chicken and broccoli for himself. I had a bit of that. Thats it! Yay! Today I've had Activia yogurt and a handful of almonds. We are meeting Joe for lunch. Have a great day friends! Enjoy!
