Had a nice evening with Mom. Planted her flowers and then she wanted McDonald's chicken tenders and drink and we took it to a park and sat and watched children play. A wonderful evening together. An evening like I once thought we'd have more of. It was pleasant. It was good to have some time like that together. I tried not to keep thinking...wish we were planting flowers at my house...but getting roof done and don't want to plant until they get done. Funny side stood with me while I planted and took the empty containers when I took them out...afterwards she commented...boy my back hurts from planting all those flowers. I wanted to chuckle. Hubby stopped by when he got back in town and she told him her back hurt from planting all evening. Just gotta laugh. Probably got her moving more than she has in a little while with all the rain. Precious times to remember. Now if we can keep her watering them so they don't die...Always something.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, May 20, 2011

Off to make it a great day! Planning to plant mom's flowers tonight if the weather is conducive to other words if it isn't actively raining./Hubby has truck load of mulch to put on flowers. Guess he is ambitious for me. Want to get it done tonight so it isn't hanging over me all weekend and we can get some things done around here and some rest.

Hubby and mother in law planning trip to Missouri over Memorial Weekend. Looking forward to time alone. Looking to reseal shower door, some graduation parties and time alone and reflection time.

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Off to take Mom to Dr this AM and then back to work. We did get to exercise last night but worked an hour over and after working out was exhausted. Work out most mornings but try to get her to exercise 2-3 times after work and only getting there once this week. Gotta get her flowers planted sometime if it would not rain. Would like to get them in while it's rainy then they will take off. Doesn't seem like enough hours in the day. Get my hair done after work today.

Brought mailing home to work on but didn't touch it.

Still tracking food. Seem to be doing OK with it. Have lots of veggies cut up from son's graduation party and that helps...can take snacks to work.

Debbie downer co-worker been off a couple days with illness. Been nice break from her...although she has been much better recently.

Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Here we go back to regular exercise and routine. Kinda feels good to get back into it. Been keeping track off eating and so far am proud of myself. I struggle with tacking but recently decided we're going to do it. Surprised myself with how much I can eat within calorie range and what I'm not getting enough of. Interesting...figured I was going over everything.

    They say knowledge is power. Now you know what you need to change to take control of your eating.

    I like to experiment and see what keeps me full , feel good and within calorie range .I track first and eat after , change the meal if I don't like the calories.

    Good for you but I too think the tracking helps so much. Reality check for so many of us.

    The numbers don't lie...and the only way to know what the numbers are is to do the tracking. Good for you! Keep up the good work! And shoot for hitting your numbers! You can do it! Go Shooting Stars! Spark on! emoticon

    I find the same thing. I can't believe what I don't get enough of and too much of. It is very interesting thing to see. I also find that it has been a helpful tool to help me want to eat better and find better options for eating the things I love.

Rainy Tuesday

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Well I survived our crazy few days. Had wonderful time with daughter and her boyfriend. He is such a nice young man. Had a nice time at son's graduation...have sore rear end...but so proud that he finally accomplished his goal. A long haul and longer being married and working full time...but he did it! Nice celebration party at his house afterwards. Nice time with daughter and mom at church and picking out flowers for her yard. Then my BFF and her hubby came from a couple days. Had wonderful dinner with my kids and BFF. Spent Monday with BFF shopping and hanging out. We always talk about going for coffee and got to do that and just talk. Daughter made it safely home. Co-worker thankfully reminded me by text that we had early AM staff meeting off site. Thank you God for good friends. It would have slipped my mind. BFF and hubby left this AM and made it safely home.

Now a quiet evening with hubby eating leftovers and relaxing. Thought I would catch up on SparkPeople as I have been barely checking in.

Guess life is back to normal. Have truly enjoyed the crazy time with family and friends. Thank you God for blessing me so.
