Turning it around!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

It's been a whirlwind couple weeks. So glad to say buh bye to January.


I work full time and then some most days. My husband works evenings so he takes care of a lot of household and dog chores.

Two weeks ago, right before he went out of town for a week to visit his ill father, a tree branch crashed through my back car window. I worked from home while waiting for the glass guy to fix it.

Since our dog is not used to being home alone all day, I left a little later in the morning to go to work and came home a little earlier in the evening then worked from home to keep up. Then there was laundry and a workout here and there! Thank goodness for spark people videos!

The day after my husband came home, he got sick. So I handled dog duties again this week (we do not have a fenced in yard, I have to go out with her in the cold, on the lookout for coyotes, skunks and possums. I'm a big scardicat!), leaving work early and working from home.


Last night after I got home from work, for some reason I could not get warm so I bundled up on the couch and the eating frenzy began plus falling asleep off and on.


This morning, the dog woke me up at 5:30 so I pushed myself to get it in gear and got to the gym for a three mile run and worked the leg machines!


I feel better now. My husband is finally starting to feel better after all week. I'm going to brave the snow and the crowds shortly to go grocery shopping. I'm crazy going out there the day before Super Bowl. Since we can't make it to the party we usually go to, I told my husband I would make him chili for the game. The anxiety should help burn a few calories!

I have 42 more days until the St. Patrick's day 5K in my area! I need to keep pushing!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Keep moving!

    I appreciate you mentioning your gratitude for SP videos, since I will be trapped at home without a car for two weeks and no way to get to the gym. Plus my membership is on hold from FEB15 to MAR 15, so I will remember now I can spice things up with the site workout videos.

    Have a great February!
