Glorious Wednesday

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Co worker finally had her baby c-section last night. Been in hospital for a day or so. I'm sure she's glad it's over. Been a long 9 months and long delivery.

Looking forward to Thursday...can't wait to get away....long trip (about 10 hours each way) but it will be good for us.

Best friend has a busy long weekend. We'll go to her exercise class on Friday...then off to see Budwiser breeding stables for their Clydesdales and see the babies! That will be fun! Saturday she and I will drive an hour to visit with her mom and take her to lunch while the boys watch Mizzou playing football. Then we get home and get ready to have a nice dinner/train ride through the countryside. Sunday afternoon we rent bikes and ride through the countryside all afternoon and eat dinner in a cave restaurant. Monday we relax and do whatever we want and Tuesday we head home. Always good to be with my BFF. We always have a good time, laugh much and relax.

Not much trunk room so been working on how to pack everything I really need instead of everything I usually take. Working with BFF to see what she has I can borrow instead of hauling with me. Kind of challenging. Glad I started early as brain doesn't always want to work after working all day and hard to focus on what to pack at night.

Off to work...then lunch at Mom's, then exercise tonight also with Mom. We'll at least get one day in this week.

Off to make it a great day!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Counting down the days until Thursday when we leave for a get-away. Stressing out how to get everything done before we leave and how to limit what we take and how to pack everything we need with little trunk room.

In a rut at work. Debbie Downer is off for awhile for maternity leave. It is slow but not sure what is going on with me. Feel like I'm in a rut...don't enjoy much of's like I'm dragging through it. Not sure what I need to get me out of this. Hoping the time away will help. Just feel tired of it all.

Off to make it a great day!

    Don't let the stress get you down. Just keep thinking ahead to your long weekend away. What gets done, gets done and you can do whatever didn't get down when you have time...if it's necessary. Look on the bright side and be thankful that you have this great opportunity to spend time with your friends.

The countdown has begun

Monday, August 29, 2011

Ready to begin this week. Heading to Missouri on Thursday to spend a long weekend with best friend and her hubby. Working until noon on Thursday and then we're taking off. Thinking maybe I've just needed to get away.

Hubby was at a race yesterday so spent quiet time alone. Got some things done and some things caught up. Watched some mystery movies, read some, did some baking, cleaned out the frig, laundry caught up, car vacuumed, some clothes sorted.

When hubby got home we went for a ride in the countryside. Gorgeous weather.

Been doing good on weight loss until Friday night...but you'll have that. Now scales show 2 pounds up...could be water...could be all I ate :) Will get back on track and keep working.

Just two of us at work now for 6-8 weeks or so..other co-worker still hasn't had her baby yet. She was pleasant the last couple of weeks.

Off to make it a great week!

    Sounds like you are having a good week. You already know you didn't gain two pounds from one meal. It will balance back out, especially since it is probably water weight. Hope you have a wonderful weekend away. ENJOY your time with your friends in Missouri!!!

Great Saturday

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Blew it Friday....took co-worker's daughter out for lunch and then treated us all for new cupcake shop. Then took mom out to dinner. She has been feeling so good want to keep it up for her...and hubby thought Golden Gorge would be good. Seems difficult for her to order and then good isn't right and she often doesn't like took her there and she enjoyed herself and was able to sample different types of food which she needs to do...more variety in her diet.....But of course I sampled a little too much. Ate less than I used to and didn't leave stuffed but don't even know how to count what all I ate. Hubby is picky eater and I enjoy tasting things we don't get at home. Hard to sometimes make some of the thing because then I would have to eat it all and it isn't worth it. So I enjoyed myself and know that we can take time to enjoy ourselves occasionally and you get back on track...just all happend in one day instead of spread out. Unfortunately it seems like it happens that way for me.

Got to get some things done around the house today and meeting up with son and daughter in law at outlet mall in awhile. Haven't seen them for awhile and it will be good to see them. Although will probably take them out for dinner...again it's ok once in awhile but seems like it happens all at once. Trying to make good choices but know it's loaded with salt and portions too big...even if I take home half of it. UGH! It is a learning process.

    You are doing a great job. This is a healthy lifestyle not a diet which means we can make those choices and still be ok as long as we aren't over-indulging every day. Enjoy the time you spend with your family today!!!

Fabulous Friday

Friday, August 26, 2011

Well we made it to another weekend. The weeks go by quickly for the most part. Planning to meet up with son and daughter in law half way. He has some shirts for us and its been awhile since we've seen them or spent some time with them.

We leave next Thursday to spend a long holiday weekend with our best friends in Missouri. Have some exciting plans. Going to have dinner on a 3 hour train ride through the countryside in the evening. Going to a restaurant in a cave. Planning a nice long bike ride on bike path and just laughter and fun. Some downtime, hopefully some restful times too! Looking forward to it. Just won't be long enough. Taking the car so trying to see how we can pack what we need with a tiny trunk. Wonder how we'll feel riding all that way. It's a fun car but not a luxury comfortable car for long we'll see.

Also planning to go on a group trip in this will be a test ride for that trip also. It will be through Ohio, Kentucky Tennessee. Hope the leaves will be pretty. It will be good to get away and take a break.

Mom doing good. Took her to exercise 3 times this week.
