So its Monday...

Monday, September 24, 2012

I don't always hate Monday but today I'm not loving it. NO particular reason really. Trying not to let the day get the better of me. So I blog. I had 2 days of Zumba fundraisers. Friday for the American Cancer Society and Saturday for the Boys and Girls Clubs. Alot of dancing. My foot hasn't been very happy since then. I'm going to be good for it for a bit. Update on Adams audition.... he may still have a lead! Not just a part or no part but a lead!!!! :) I'll know more by Wenesday. I'll keep you updated! I'm feeling bloated and fat today. I know. It seems ridiculous. Oh well. Even with all of the workouts and healthy eating. Being in my 40's is not easy. It's just not. One day at a time.

    Sometimes Zumba can be hard on the joints, I suggest some yoga or pilates to stretch out all those muscles you are building.

    I hope your Monday improves greatly. Take care of that foot of yours so you can keep on dancing. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for Adam so he can get the lead. You are still rocking your 40's big time, you have so much going for you now.

My star was burned last night...

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Ugggggg...poor Adam. He found out the day before yesterday that there was a very important audition for a theater company he has been wanting to perform with for a long time. Very last minute though to prepare. He found a song to use but used it only because it was the only song we had sheet music for in the house and he had to have the sheet music for the audition. He had never seen this song before but practiced it all night and yesterday. He had the audition last night and was very intimidated. I could tell. He forgot the words two times. Ugggg... No call back call last night. He is so bummed. I feel so bad. He has been on such a high with theater for 2 years. A lead resulted in each audition. What a let down. So a tough night. I needed to blog it out. Glad I have you to turn to. Food still great!!!! Exercise still great! I went to a Zumba class Monday night that I haven't hit since June. The women all were saying how I look like I've lost a lot of weight! Yay! Score! :) I'm meeting a good friend for lunch. That will be nice. I'm heading to a Zumba class tonight.

    Sorry for Adam's struggles. Proud of you that despite secondhand stress you are eating and exercising well. Good for you! That's setting priorities. -Marsha

    Hopefully, he will learn from this experience... stumbling on one audition doesn't mean you stop chasing your dream... and he will be even stronger for the next one!

    I am glad you are doing well. Hugs for Adam, it is too bad he didn't have more time to prepare, i know he could have rocked that audition. He is still great no matter what.

HI Sparkies!

Monday, September 17, 2012

Monday Monday...Life is getting settled with the fall schedule. Food has been very good. I feel so much more like me. The house is getting its fall cleaning...hasn't been done in 2 years.... I put out my favorite fall decorations...I love my scarecrow on the front porch. :) I've started hearing the usual woes of working friends..."sooooo are you lonely without the kids home? What could you possibly be doing with yourself?" Yup....For 2 Septembers being in the depression I was in I just fell farther and farther inside myself. Not this year! I told them I'm getting into projects and doing some fall cleaning :) which I am....They look lost. Good...If these friends are to stay friends they have to be supportive of me. Right? Right! So I'm so happy that I'm here. Thank God for my sparkies who have helped me through all of this transitioning in my life. I feel like a new woman! Stronger. Smarter. Yay!

Good morning Sparkies!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

What a wonderful mini vaca!!! Three nights away was just what the dr. ordered . I think Indiana have the nicest people. They are so friendly and giving. Honestly! Love them! The weather was perfect to watch golf and be pampered :). I went to my RPM spin class yesterday. Wow! Tough but great. Sooo effective. I"m still feeling it. Food has been amazing. Even for being away. Food yesterday...a protein shake after workout. Grilled chicken salad for lunch. Greek yogurt for snack. Ground turkey over broccoli and cheddar cheese with chopped tomatoes and onions. Yum! I made an amazing omlette this morning with leftover ground turkey, spinach, olives, tomatoes with onions and same low fat cheddar. Yum! I will give myself about a half hour and that get going on my day. I went to see my therapist yesterday. I feel like I'm getting ready to take a little hiatus from these sessions..yes! I'm feeling really good. Like my old self. Yay!!!! I hope my Sparkies are having a great day!

    Sounds great about the little holiday you took. I'm glad you had a good time.

We don't have spin classes here. I would love to try something like that. Maybe, I should take out the bike, waaay in the back of the garage...! emoticon

Welcome Back....

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Think Welcome Back Carter :)....Back to school around here. Uggggg....Never like this day. I love my boys around. No worries though. I think staying on top of my vitamins and getting my exercise is good for me. I'm transitionally well with them going back. Both my boys are in the high school this year! Wow! I can't believe it! They are amazing and awesome! If I do say so myself! :) Josh had his first football game yesterday. He got some good play time in and didn't get hurt...score!!! Joe and I are headed to Indianapolis tomorrow for the BMW golf championship tomorrow. Maybe you will see me on tv :)...A very casual trip. I'm thankful for that :). Hope all my sparkies are well!

    It's such an adjustment to get back into the school routine of things. Especially for me, since I now have one staying home. (Blog).

Anyways, have a good weekend. There is no way I'll see you on t.v. Just because I can't stand golf! emoticon
