Tuesday, Nov. 12. Catching up after the weekend!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I fell behind a little on my 28 day Bootcamp workout challenge over the weekend. Missed doing anything Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but did 2 of the short toning vids yesterday and 1 of them today. Tonight I'll hit the treadmill or bikes after a 4-H Leader meeting. It will be late, but I need to get back on my workout bandwagon!

I enjoyed having one of my college girls home for the weekend, though she did have her own things to go and do. That's OK since we had didn't necessarily clear the social calendar, either. Saturday night we went to a football game for our sons' highschool--state quarter finals! It was the first time their little school has ever made it past the first round of playoffs. It was an unseasonably warm night for a football game, so perfect! Neither of the boys play football, but DS#2 is in pep band and DS #1 is a senior so he wants to be there to cheer on his classmates. The littles went to Grandma's house to play. Then we got to have a late dinner with the grandparents and back home. Sunday was the neighbor girl's birthday party after church and DS#1 went to youth group planning Sunday night. I was busy trying to get some 4-H planning done (I'm our club's adult leader) so stayed up WAY too late. BUT, I got it done in time to bring the new directory and club calendar/program to last night's meeting.

After the busy weekend, I feel like I need a whole day to catch up on sleep. I tend to be a nightowl, so it's hard for me to get to bed early. It's just so QUIET and PEACEFUL late at night. emoticon But I know I got to get to bed earlier if I'm going to survive each morning when the kids get up! So I'm adding a goal to my November goals (I'll go back and edit that post)--I will do my best to get to bed before midnight each night. My hubby laughs when I say this because he knows I can usually pull it off a couple nights, but then suddenly I'm back to my normal 1:00 or 2:00 AM crawling into bed. But like my other goals... I'm going to write this down and then gauge my success at the end of the month.

Speaking of the end of the month... we are getting close to Thanksgiving! I'm planning on making a few healthy changes to some favorite recipes. One is that I will make a crustless pumpkin pie to go with the regular one. Also, I'll make sure there are some "bare" green vegetables on the table, not just the coated, gloppy, vegetable "casserole" variety we usually have. I'll make sure I watch my portions and shy away from the high fat and high sugar options. Moderation is my mantra this Thanksgiving!

    I always include some baked sweet potatoes on the table. Be sure to grab yours first because you will be surprised at who will have one. BTW, I'm a night owl too. Have been since birth. There's research that indicates babies that don't sleep as much are smarter. Not sure of the direction of the causation, smart leads to being awake or because they're awake they learn more.

    I'm out of breathe just reading your blog...LOL
    Your weekend sounded like mine only half mine was at work and it just hasn't slowed down yet.
    I'm doing to water aerobics this morning to make up for missing Frday and Monday as work got in the way.
    Glad you had time to visit with your daughter. It's always fun when they come home. Are you finally having Mn temps down there?
    It's been in the 20's here but they are calling for mid 30's this week. I just hope everything stays frozen. The thaw isn't worth the sloppy mess. Besides everyone is gearing up to fish on the ice.
    Have a great day!
