Another crazy busy day yesterday we left early in the am to bring the kids to NY for the long weekend. After getting back I treated myself to getting my nails done then went & did most of my holiday shopping for the kids. Tomorrow I plan on wrapping & hopefully getting the xmas cards done too. Thanksgiving @my folks was awesome! Food was too good & ate way too many cals, carbs and fat today but did do my ST, rest & loved playing my brothers xbox kinnect games w/the family. What a fun way to do your cardio! Finally got to see my sisters engagement ring & my SIL is a beautiful pregnant woman. DH & I are now enjoying our quiet time. He watching football while I spark. Good night & Happy Thanksgiving! Are you doing any black friday shopping tomorrow?

    Me neither, I did most of my shopping yesterday to beat the holiday rush, no crowds & plenty of help emoticon

Loved my crazy busy day yesterday. Blogging was probably the only thing I didn't do emoticonDid my usual walk in the am w/my BF, ran an errand, ST had a healthy lunch & dinner. Was surprisingly still under in my calorie intake even after eating some of my kids Halloween treats emoticonso I treated myself to some beef jerky before going to bed emoticon emoticonWent to bed at a reasonable hour but I got up way too early this am. I was hot, after using the restroom I turned off the heat in the house. DD got up to use the restroom & after she went back to bed I decided to just get up & spark a little. I feel so addicted emoticonbut I feel this isn't a bad one emoticonHope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving emoticons

    lol...I thought I was the only one that 'sparked' in the middle of the night! I'll get up for the bathroom and find myself on the computer before I get back into bed :)

Having a good day. Went to church, cleaned a little & packed some of the kids stuff for their upcoming trip to visit their grandparents. I'm now getting their stuff around for school tomorrow. I'm enjoying hearing the kids laughter while they play w/their friends. I've done well nutritionally today so far but the hardest part is coming later in the day. Still want to get a little cardio in. I'd like to get in a walk tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be nice out and my friends will join me. It's so much more enjoyable w/friends & great weather.

Had my hair lasered off this am. Procedure was unpleasant but hopefully worth it in the future of no longer ever having to shave! DH had an early lunch & went to work, he wants to try and catch up since he's been traveling so much & when he's in the office during business hours he's usually in meetings so he's now tackling stuff that's been piling up. I so remember those days and don't miss them. I remember bk how grateful I was when my boss would let me work @ my desk so I wouldn't have to attend some of the office meetings. I got so much done w/out interruption. Now I'm very thankful I can be a SAHM. No plans yet for tonight, how about you?

Went to bed way around 1am today & at 2 my middle child woke me up b/c she couldn't sleep b/c she said she kept hearing scratching noises in her room, so I went and laid to bed w/her b/c I was jumpy too since dh's traveling. Look forward to seeing him tonight. Thankfully my middle childs pinkeye didn't look that bad this am for her school pics. While dd's were in school it made me so happy to have a nice long walk @ the mall this am w/my buddy. Sparked, read my email, caught up on FB while having a leisurely lunch. Did my ST then dd's helped me make some mexican-style turkey soup for dinner. My oldest tried it and liked it emoticonbut the others only wanted mac n'cheese so I have lots of soup leftovers. Freezing half of it for later. Tasted great! Trying to put some laundry away & want to give them baths, stories & songs before bedtime." emoticon"Is what I keep telling myself so I need to get busy. Have a great night emoticon
