Positive Rewards

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Last night and today we were out of town for my daughters Hip Hop compitition. They will now be going to Las Vegas in April!!!! They did awesome!!!!!! :o) :o)

So anyone that is farmilular with my goals may know that I allow myself a "free" day I guess you would call it. One that I don't have to track or can go over within reason. Well I have been wanting to get a two of Jillians books that I have read the samples of, I was talking with Trever on Friday about wanting to get them since they were $10 each. He was talking about some stuff he wanted to get for his salt water tank too. So we came up with a great plan. If we stayed on track Friday that we could get one of the things we wanted, and if we stayed on plan today we could get the other thing. :o)

Instead of getting the things we set small goals to get them :o) Proudly I would like to say that we both earned both rewards !!!! Yeah !!!! The best part is that we probably would have spent almost that much had we not stayed on plan due to the food being so expensive. We brought our own snacks so we knew the calories and we didn't really go out for desert. :o) A win/win for us!!!!!!! We also got lucky and saved $5 on parking for walking a block further where it was $10. Then when we left they were charging $20 a spot where we were parked instead of $5. WOW

So today was a great day, I hope everyone elses day was too!!!!!! Oh yeah how could I forget I got up at 5:45 a little over an hour before everyone and went down to the hotels gym and did intervals on the treadmill for an hour going four miles then another half mile when I got home !!!!!!! Also they made me go up a hula hoop on stage, I learned that I can only hula hoop on the Wi. HA ha ha ha !!!!! I'm sure it was very funny. Here are a couple pics from today

    The girls look adorable! Thanks for posting the pictures. What an exciting event.
I like how you handled your food and traded in eating more expensive stuff for rewards!
Yay for the treadmill!

Friday, January 15, 2010

This morning we took the kitten to the vet to get fixed. Some pictures of him in the car are below. Today is our off Friday so we didn't have to work :o)

After we got home a messed around online for over an hour while walking on the incline trained and logged 4 miles.

Now we are off to Phoenix for the evening for my daughters compitition tomorrow. I spent the time on the treadmil researching where to go for dinner tonight. I am bringing some snacks/food with me and have a plan and will stick to it. :o) Not sure if I will make it to the hotels gym in the morning if not might walk when I get home or walk/run. We'll see :o) I've got my cardio for the week so any time tomorrow is a bonus. Hope everyone had a great week.

I'm really sorry that I haven't been posting as much on everyones blogs and feeds as much these last couple days but things have been busy. But I am staying on track :o) Here's the pics of Pumpkin our kitty

Just wanted to post a quick blog about today. Chance got his cast off this afternoon, yeah!!!!

Today was my moms b-day and she wanted to go to tgi fradays I decided ahead of time that I was going to have the brown rice with steamed broc. and veggies no butter just seasonings. It was yum for me :) With water of course :o) Had a great day got home after the Dr's about an hour and a half before I had to leave for my moms b-day dinner so jumped on the treadmill for an hour and went 4 miles, took a quick shower and out the door. :o) Hope everyone had a great day. It's late so I'm off to dream land. Gotta take kitty to the vet tomorrow to get fixed.

My dinner I had tonight, followed by a vita top back at home while everyone else had cake :)

Got through today

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

So I had court this afternoon. Yuck :P I had to go to court for child support modification. I wasn't sure why, because I was served by the state, but it is lower than it should be so I didn't care. Well before I went today I found out that my exes first wife was also going to be there at the same time. My kids see there half brother when their dad decides to see all of them. Mostly every other weekend lately though. Well over the summer he was on unemployment for a few months and decided to go to the state to ask his support be modified, well they are just getting to it and now that he is working and when they last caluculated it they talked me into lowering it so he wouldn't quit and not pay, it's probably going to go up on him. Kinda funny other than it doesn't matter what they set it at, he owes me so much.

Well I knew I shouldn't have worried about it but I really hate court and everything. I didn't sleep that well last night, but now I'm through today and I walked 2 miles on the incline trainer then decided to run 1 more . So 3 miles tonight!!!!!!

Sorry if this doesn't make sence, I'm tierd and off to bed. Hugs to all!!!!!

Good night

I'm on my daughters laptop, so I don't have many pictures, so here is one of her when she was little :o)

    I can relate to hating to go to court for child support. To me it never seemed to be worth the hassle for the little they give you or for their lack of collecting it.

Good going on getting your workout in despite the stress.
Keep up the good work,

No not cigarettes ... Yuck!!!!!!!


ok so I know I already bloged today but I'm super proud of myself. I went to Fleet Feet after work today to get new shoes. I told them I wanted what was best for me, that I didn't want to choose at all by price color or anything like that. I exspected to pay 150+ for shoes. After all the evaluations etc the shoes I ended up getting much to my surprise were $100. I know still expensive, but I ran in them tnight and not a single pain. I think if they keep me from another foot injury they are so worth it!!! I've been a little sore so held back a little the past week. They didn't slow me down tonight :o)

I did intervals during biggest loser and in 1 hour I went 4.5 miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just had to share really quick before bed :o)

Here is a pic of my new brooks and the treadmill readings. Hugz everyone have a great evening and day tomorrow.

    Shoes make all the difference to a runner, and getting the right shoes is an investment, not only in your current running career, but in your future running career as well! Take it from someone who learned the hard way!

    Fleet Feet is a good store, that is where I got my last pair. I love them as well. great to hear you had such a wonderful day. 100 is a small price to pay to protect your kickers :)
