A warm day today

Friday, March 26, 2010

Took the Phredster out for his walks today. Cleaned the house and did 7 loads of laundry. Still folding clothes. Husband working this evening over near Disneyland at the Hilton Hotel. Other than that is was a pretty quiet day in paradise.


Very cool this morning & Franks new PC

Thursday, March 25, 2010

But what a change in 24 hrs. Yesterday it was pretty warm by 8am (shorts & tshirt), today I started my walk with the dog around 7:50am and it was overcast and almost cold (cold for CA)(sweatpants, tshirt and hoodie). Came home ate breakfast, read a little of the paper. Ran some errands, Kame-A-Part (K-Mart), CVS and Staters Brothers Market.
Purchased some cod and shrimp. Made the cod with Panko and nuts, tasted great. Will make the shrimp tomorrow or Sunday.
We have purchased for my son, Frank(early birthday present), a computer so he has it in his room now. He will be 24 in July and this is for college. We have 3 computers in our house now if you count my laptop. Frank needed it for college so we consider a plus. If he evers finishes college maybe we will finally get the last child out of the house.
Don't get me wrong, I love my children but it seems at times we will never get rid of all of them. My daughter Samra finally moved to OK 2 yrs ago, she is 25. Our foster son Jory (24) moved to AZ around the same time. Of course this was after a talk we had with all the kids. My husband felt we made it too easy on them to just stay. We charged rent when they had jobs and when they didn't they had to help around the house. It was pretty nice to be able to go to the gym and I myself was in college at that time and not have to worry about things getting done around the house.
Joined a OC Hiking club today. Irene sent me a link. In a strange way she has been my lifesaver, helping to get me out and exercising with walks and hikes, not just the gym. I have no problem going to the gym everyday but it is nice to do the walks outdoors and have a friend who wants to do the same thing and lives about 2 miles away.


Walked the river again

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I think my friend Irene and I are going to try to start walking the river 2 times a week. We have been doing it about 2 or 3 times a month.Tomorrow I may go biking with Irene, she is going to borrow her daughers bike for me. She has helmets and all that good stuff. She is a real biker and does races too. Her and her husband did a bike ride of 60 miles on Sat. down towards San Diego. I am glad to have a friend like her who is so active and into walking/running/biking, She is almost 3 yrs older than me, so I have to keep up. lol Keeps me motivated.


Tuesday night tv

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Tonight is the biggest loser, I watch the first hour and then change over to Lost.
At commercials I try to catch up on what is going on on TBL. Unfortunately last week I missed who was knocked off so it will be a surprise for me tonight.
Also the new show Parenthood is on and pretty good. I loved the "Gilmore Girls" so I wasn't going to miss this new show.


BD dinner at Buca di Beppo (Italian Restaurant)3/21/10

Monday, March 22, 2010

Went out to dinner at the above restaurant last night. Was so good but went way over my calorie count. That is 2 times this week. Had the most wonderful Lasagna and Veal Parmesan, should have ordered a salad but this is family style and the guys wanted food "Not rabbit stuff" to quote my son. We had the small orders which come with 3 helpings. Next I will fill up on the salad and have just a small bit of the lasagna but it was my birthday. I am afraid we also order the Chocolate chip canoli's for desert. The small comes with 3 and just the right amount after the food. If I had stuck to just the above my calorie count wouldn't have been that bad. My husband ordered the cheesy garlic bread and they screwed up and brought us the regular so we got both for the price of one. I had 2 pieces of the GB and a small amount of the reg. freshly made, very good.
Also had a birthday drink, Blue Hawaii.
Don't ask about the calories! I don't think my body was use to that type of food because (I know a lady shouldn't talk about this) I had gas all day.
Did my walks with the Phredster and watch some of my new dvd with Jillian Michaels. I always watch my exercise dvd's first so I know sort of what to do.
I am gonna start with the beginners (level 1)because it may be only 20 mins but it is way tough. There are 3 levels and I will eventually get there.

My new plan is to start to get up early again, take the dog for a walk, come home and do the Jillian Michaels workout and hit the gym for more cardio and weight workout. See if I can pump up my workouts and get in shape faster.
OK may be just kidding myself but that is the plan. Got to have a plan,Right? emoticon emoticon

    I think it's fine to splurge within reason on Special days.

You made me feel better about watching Leslie Sansone, LOL. (I'm going to remember that line and use it.)
