Accomplished boot camp w/out quitting & think I did great for once. Still want to die when teacher mentions we are going to do suicide, but I did them, woohoo! Need to work on crawling w/out knees on the floor as well as like a crab. Amzingly harder than it looks for me. Even walked on the treadmill for an hour afterwards. Took my son to the park before going home for lunch. The kids played outside for a little bit before we headed out to run a few errands. As a reward the kids & I went out for dinner & a movie. DH is hopefully on his way home soon. He's been traveling in CA all week. So now I'm tired and ready to call it a night. Looking forward to having dh' sister & her family over for the weekend so may be off the computer for a few days due to entertaining. Hope you all have a great weekend emoticons!

    Mmmm... mac and cheese.

Okay, so I have a cheater recipe for mac and cheese. My son can't tell the difference, but I can (though I'm not sure if that's because I know it's different). For the cheese sauce, I blend cottage cheese with a tiny bit of nonfat milk until it's really creamy, and then I blend cooked cauliflower in, until it's creamy. For the right color, I add a couple of drops of food coloring, but I've debated adding cooked carrots to the blender mix to get the right color. Anyway, I put this over cooked whole wheat macaroni. It's pretty good, for healthy. ;) Just not the same.

I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.

Love that quote!
Doing well nutrition wise, getting lots of errands done just need to work on my fitness. Yesterday was a great rest day & I need to get back in my groove. Went to the mall to find myself a maid of honor dress & instead bought myself a new bikini for my upcoming trip to Jamaica. Looking forward to getting some vitamin d & some color emoticon so I can look good in it.

I was feeling really tired yesterday afternoon, thought it was from all the exercise so I took the kids out for chinese. I had no more energy after giving the kids a bath so I went to bed right after they did. I woke up around 1 to one of them whining or crying. Stopped myself before entering their room to see if it had stopped on its own & had. I layed awake for over an hour & saw my phone light was blinking w/a mssg to check the line. I went downstairs & tried calling the house phone w/my cell still not working nor was the internet. When I called to report it, it had already been reported. So happy they are both working now :) Still have a headache & feel really nauseaus (not sure of spelling) Hope I can fall back asleep soon.

Had a great day yesterday! Saw my buddy & her dh @ church yesterday as well as today @ the gym. My DH got home in time for me to get my daughters to recital pictures. A big thank you to both my MIL&DH& kids for making it possible. I enjoyed a 3 mile walk w/the kids (I ended up always carrying 1 or the other of my youngest ones) & then went for another walk w/my running buddy last night. Today I tried Will power & Grace for the first time. Kind of like a ST/yoga combo as well as Zumba (1st time in over 3 years) I was a little awkward in both but I'm sure it'll get easier in time :) My son had a great time w/his friend Jackson today @ childwatch. Have a sparktacular day!
