Friday Thisn' and Thatn' ***Whaaaat?***

Friday, November 18, 2011

This blog entitled: Friday Thisn' and Thatn' is allowed, as the author, Sheryl aka Shashee71, is just a southern girl from Nashville, TN and doesn't know any better. Actually, she does know better; she simply does not care.

YAY! It's Friday! Woo Hoo! This has been a long week.

I have had a 7 day Spark streak. Woo hooo!
I have stayed on track and it feels so good, y'all! I'm feeling the Spark love once again and couldn't be happier.

I have been tracking my food for 5 days and have stayed within my calorie range every day.
I have also been drinking water like a mad woman. Well...mad woman for me anyway. I can still seem to only get about six 8 oz glasses of water in a day...BUT I am doing it. Going from ZERO to 48oz a day is pretty good for me. I am not a water drinker.

Good Lawd!
Don't you crazy water drinkers hate this? It drives me cuh-raaazy! Seems like I am up n down, up n down, every 5 minutes!!

Light bulb moment....I think I just set a goal for myself. Well, I'll be...

Goal#1: Get in at least eight 8oz glasses of water a day!!! There! That wasn't so hard, now. WOW...I am such a wuss....that was the lamest ( lamest a word) goal ever!!! If you knew how much a HATE drinking water,'s actually a toughie for me!

OK OK.... I get it, I get it.

Official weigh in day is tomorrow! So we'll see how that goes.

So not to change the subject but....My hubby and I, for the past 2 months or so have been really looking forward to our Friday nights. We will come home from work, set a fire in our fire pit out in the backyard and light the tiki torches, fix an adult bev or two, listen to music and chat and reallly just relax and spend quality time with each other. It has been a really nice fall here in Nashville so we have totally been enjoying every second of it!! However, tonight is going to be the first REALLY cold Friday since we've started this trend....and I just don't want it to end. What to do, what to do?? I really don't want to bring it inside. There's just too much going on in the house... TV, computers (facebook and pinterest ughhhh) games...THE COUCH! I sit down and I swear I will start nodding by 7 o'clock!!

We have toyed with a few options. Like making our garage into a "game room" type of area (now Allan will call it a "man cave" I'm sure, but HELLO...I will be there too).... but put a little wet bar out there with a dart board, and maybe ping pong or pool, and corn hole...and an electric heater. Or... we've talked about getting one of those patio heaters and still sit outside. We've researched those and they heat a 15 ft. area pretty nicely, and then we can still have our camp fire and light our tiki outside and not be tempted by our gadgets.

But that doesn't get me through THIS Friday...tonight, I mean! I'm thinking we go ahead and light our fire and tikis...and bundle up real good and just see how it goes from there. Maybe switch to a "hot toddy" instead of our usual! I guess we'll figure something out!

Keep your Spark this weekend my friends!! I plan on it!
Hold on to it tight!
Don't let go!!

    You've helped many of us burn a few extras with laughter!

    Hot Toddies work, trust me. We lived on a lake in upstate NY in the dead of winter (temps and windchill wayyyyyyyy below 0). Besides shivering burns calories too.

    So keep on thisn' 'n' thatn'!

    Loved the pictures!! Especially the pee-pee dance. LOL. My long term goal is lunch too unless it's after noon. LOL.

    It sounds like you are doing super right now. I'm still treading water in the Bermuda Triangle surrounded by sharks and I resemble a wounded seal. LOL. You are so focused when you want to be. I need to borrow some of your mojo.

    I dread Winter. I hate being cooped up inside. Hubby and try to take walks together on the weekends if it's not too cold, icy, or the snow too deep. And we still swing but it's not conducive to being out for too long.

    Great blog! I love the energy I feel from your blogs and I always find myself smiling or giggling while reading. My two cents is to still have your normal Friday night and get in some cuddle time to keep warm!! emoticon That's great you guys have special time you set aside to spend with each other. Hope it's a great night for you!
