Is there anything a girl can do to get away from the mood swings that accompany Aunt Flo? Those monthly visits don't effect me as much as they used to before I started exercising again, but I can still feel this air of melancholy hanging around me. There's nothing to be sad about, except maybe the fact that I have to work tomorrow. haha. I just feel so blah, and I wanna not feel like weeping for no reason at all. On an intellectual level, I feel fine. I know where the emotional drain is coming from. I was just wondering if there was a way around it. Suggestions?

You get a car. You don't expect it to just take you places, right? You learn how to drive. You put in the proper fuel. You find out how to get from point A to point B. You take yourself there.
SP is that vehicle to a better life. It is a way to get us to "healthy". We don't just log in and expect it to make us skinny. You have to drive the car.
I've got to do my workouts and eat right to get healthy. I know this. I know you know this. I just felt like putting it down on (virtual) paper to remind myself.
heehee.... ramblings of a sleepy Stefipop

Harmony wanted me to play Mario with her on the Wii. I told her that I would as long as she would work out with me. Is that so wrong? Wrong or not, she had fun and we laughed the whole way through the dvd.
I got 3 miles of a WATP dvd completed, and Harmony and Bryan did it with me! Then we played on the Wii for a bit. After I'd had my fill, I passed the controller on to Steven and let him in on the fun. Yay for family time!
I am planning on heading to bed early tonight. I feel like a full 8 hours would really do me some good. I am leaving some of the housework that I had planned go so my eyes can get some rest. They are feeling ready for a good Z or two right now, but it isn't even the kids' bedtime yet. Yikes.
Is it horrible that I am ready for a snow day, and it's not even snowing? The third nine-week period of school seems to last an eternity!

Oh, my gosh! I did a 2-mile WATP dvd with my 10-year-old ((((BRYAN)))). I was tired so I parked my butt on the couch when I got home from a trip to Walmart after work. I was fake-whining that I didn't wanna get up and work out. He pulled on my hand and said, "Come on, Mom. I'll do it with you!" Well, that got me up very fast! We were huffing and puffing together, laughing all the time. So much fun! We hugged after, and I thanked him for sweating with me! LOVE IT! Later, Steven (12) was making all kinds of noise in his room. Bryan went to investigate, and Steven was doing push ups and sit ups and jumping around with Nickelback blared to the max. He came into the living room to get the weights so he could get some definition in his arms. This fitness thing is rubbing off, and it feels really great!
Oooh, oooh! While I was at Walmart, I got avacados, jalepenos, limes, tomatoes and onions. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?! Guacamole tomorrow!!! Plus, I got some frozen low-cal meals for my lunches at work. I needed something a little more filling than the soups I had been having, so I don't feel so famished when I get home. Yay for small steps to success.
Now I am just the right amount of tired to get a good night's rest!
Until tomorrow, my friends....

Okay, show your age, how many of you are humming the song or even full out singing it? La Laaaa La La Laaa La....
Well, I can do it. I can fit in a full day of work, dinner with the kids, watching a movie with said children, folding two loads of laundry (where the heck did they come from?!), washing dishes with the help of a fantastic 10-year-old, and an hour-long Walk Away The Pounds DVD.
I still need to vacuum and dust, but that will wait until tomorrow.
I am going to put the new sheets on the bed (last bed in the house finally has clean sheets! yay!), take a shower and read myself to sleep.
What was my excuse all those nights that I didn't work out? Oh yeah, I was too tired. Hahahahaaaa! I feel more energetic now than I did practically any day last year. Why did I not remember that exercise actually BUILDS energy rather than saps it?
Well, night, all! Thanks for reading my ramblings...
