Shopping REALLY is good therapy

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

the morning is going great so far, did the elliptical, burned over 600 cal. weigh in is typically on mondays. i sneak peaked on the scale earlier, and i am happy. =) i just hope that this sticks and i stay on track. if all goes well i hope to lose 2lbs or more by monday. =D

I need to set my goals for May:

- burn 3000 calories per week doing JM and the elliptical
- lose 5lbs
- go on a date with my husband (this WILL happen, or imma drag him out somewhere)

My husband works too damn much. I'm home 24/7 with the kids. We both need a break. And I think we are both entitled and deserve a date night, (which we haven't had in YEARS). And not the boring dinner crap, I wanna do something fun. Bowling, baseball game, something... idk, i'll figure it out.

I had my sil babysit for me yesterday to run an errand for the hubby, and I took advantage of her and went to an outdoor mall and took a little break from the madness at home. my kids have been misbehaving SO much lately. i swear my teeth hurt from grinding them in anger. its so nice there. it is pretty new, prob about 3-4 years old. i bought me some makeup, and i LOVE it!! Benefit Mascara, was only $22 and it goes on soo good and really fills out the lashes. Also got a shadow pallet from Urban Decay. I love makeup and dressing up, and I can't wait to lose this weight and show off that hot ass body i have hiding under all this nastiness. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think that is so awesome that you took some "me" time. You so deserve it!! A little pick-me-up can go such a long ways!!

    Glad to hear you had a good day. I understand the shopping and dressing up thing, that always makes me feel good too. For the date thing I always like glow in the dark mini golf, bowling and baseball games are good too though, I agree, sometimes just dinner can get boring. And those are all good goals for May. I hear ya on the water, it's tough to get those 8 glasses in! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Way to go.. seeing that my kids are teenagers and I do not need to worry about babysitters any more but boy do I remember those challenges.
    the best way is to set a date.. and just do it .. kind of like starting out an fitness program.. good luck

    You made a great choice in sneaking in that me time!!! I would have done the same!!! Wish I could have joined you. I need new makeup too. Hardly ever wear any and when I do go to put some on I find I don't have much lol!
    I am going to steal one of your goals too! Hubby and I need a fun date night too!!! It is so hard to convince him of something different though... And like you with three kids, it is not easy getting out ever! I can count the last few date nights we had and since kiddo number three it has not been more than 2 a year! It sucks not having time together. Last one barely even counted because all we had was about 2hrs really so all we did was go out for dinner weekend after valentines day.

    Keep up the awesome streak of those jm workouts!!! You are going to look fabulous for your date night. emoticon
