Tuff weekend

Monday, December 28, 2009

Christmas started out very well. It wasn't until Sat. evening while I was on this site that I started to have terrible stomach cramps. Must have been something I ate but for the life of me I couldn't figure it out until late Sunday night. I had one of those chocolates with the liquiers inside. It was a type of liquier I had never had b/4 and that is what we think gave me an allergic reaction, pretty mild I guess but I had a rash, itching and the toilet problem all night and most of the day. I was beat. Was back to the gym today.

Great to see Sandy

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Sandy stopped by the house for a little while b/4 she headed over to her Mom's. It was great to see and she looked good. I then made some more goodies had a little real food to eat and headed over to the gym. That was about all

    Yeah... it was great to see you too. I don't think I've seen you EVER looking so thin! I think I need to listen to you and get a little mentoring! Junior got me a Wii Fit and Sport setup for Christmas. I've wanted one for a few years, but had too many other things that seemed more important. It says I weigh less than I thought; but I'm more worried about whether I LOSE weight than an actual measurement. I haven't had a reliable scale until now either.

I hope to be down there more often this year. If we get some bills paid down, I can afford the trip and I really should visit my parents more while I still have them. I usually visit a friend too, and would like to see you occassionally. Are you ever up early and able to meet somewhere for breakfast? Or we could go to the gym and I could bring bagels from Panera?

Late start day

Monday, December 21, 2009

I just didn't have much energy today. I don't know if it was because my alarm didn't go off, due to the fact the husband turned off the power yesterday and didn't tell me. I just felt tired out at the gym and shorten my strenght training to 30 from 40 mins and did only 65 mins of cardio. Normally I could do over 6.50 miles but I barely made 6.32 miles. Oh well tomorrow another day!

  


Beautiful Day

Monday, December 21, 2009

Was a nice warm day here in the southland. I took my son and went to El Toro to have lunch with my sister and her family. Traffic wasn't bad when one considers it normally sucks. I made some of my famous Reindeer Droppings, some fudge and only took one little piece of the RDs. To the gym in the morning.

Christmas shopping with the husband

Saturday, December 19, 2009

I warned him not to complain but he did. We were in the store less than 10 mins. and he didn't want to hear the music anymore and was mad that everything was mad in China, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Maylaisa, or some other 3rd world country.
I was looking for a new jacket for Christmas, I had to go or who knows what he would have picked out. OMG he went over to men's area to try to find a jacket for me, when I pointed this out, he was "How can you tell?". He went out to have a cigarette and left me alone for about 15 mins. One lady who had heard him, both of us looked at each other and laughed after he left. I told her he doesn't go into clothing stores much (we were in Burlington Coat Factory), another younger girl also thought he was funny. I did finally find something I liked, it was a little over $50. He said of course you can't find one that has a sale price on it. I said, "You told me you had $100 to spend on me and I didn't go over your budget".
He also got me a new waffle iron ($80), like the kind they have in the hotel breakfast buffets to make your own. Those are so neat and that is what I asked for besides the jacket or boots. Still no boots I will have buy those for myself.

    Yeah... our men can make us laugh. Took me years to realize it's better to love 'em for their manhood and laugh that what makes them tick sure annoys the heck out of us women!

When I visited my mom, poor gal with TWO men to annoy her constantly... I finally got her laughing at it all too instead of cowering. The men are just sure we should be like them in every way. LOL. Can you believe Dad complains how she cleans the sink and thinks his way is better???? She's been with him almost 50 years and taken care of him... He rarely lifting a finger to help around the house unless great fanfare was done to announce his martyrdom.... but NOW she is supposed to change EVERY way she cleans to please him. Nope. Put it wrong. Dad just took over and left her doing NOTHING. Grrr! Another reason I really need to go visit more often. Mom needs some female companionship to laugh with and keep her morale strong.
