Week 4 Fitness Goals

Monday, February 25, 2013

Hi everyone!

Week 3 goals were...
Walk - minimum of 4 miles
DONE! Walked a total of 5 miles.

Steps - 3 days with over 10,000 steps, the other days I must reach at least 5,000
DONE! Walked 10,000 steps on Thur, Fri, and Sat. All other days were right around 8,000

Food - track it all...every single bite!
Almost DONE. The weekend was way too busy, didn't even touch my computer!

Water - minimum 10 glasses a day

Weight - lose the 2 - 3 lbs I gained the previous week. (Currently 192)
DONE! Lost 2 lbs last week

The goals for this week are going to be exactly the same. It's a busy week again, so I'm just going to try my best to keep at it. I am also starting 2 challenges that both begin on Friday.

So this morning was court...custody mediation to be exact. Emily's dad didn't show, but I knew that was going to happen. Saturday night, right before her party, he called and said both his cars were repossessed. I had someone pick him up and someone else take him home. It was Em's party, she wanted him there, so I made that possible.
Last night he called to ask me if I would take him and his wife (the evil stepmother) to court this morning. Really?! I said it depended, was he ready to agree to what Emily wanted as far as custody? He said no. So I said no. I'm not giving him a ride into the city, to spend an hour arguing with him, to only turn around and have to ride home with him. It's a good 45 minute drive with traffic. Dummy.

So this afternoon is Carly's 1 month appointment! Time flies! Tomorrow is my first day back to school (I go online with University of Phoenix), and then Wednesday morning is my post-partum check-up. My mom is still in town (THANK GOODNESS!) and is helping me with babysitting and housework and it's so very nice of her. I'll have to let her return home on Wednesday though.

The Sweet 16 party...awesome! It was a great time and Emily said she had a blast. It really seemed like it. Oh, and the cake turned out great too. Now I understand why they charge people to cut cakes at weddings and things...because it is a pain in the butt!!
Here is the cake...tomorrow I will try to post a blog of just pics of the party. For now, I gotta run.

Birthday girl with her cake...

I can't wait to share more with you! Thanks to everyone who sent goodies and birthday wishes to Emily...she thanks you too!
Oh, OK, and one more pic...Carly and Preston this morning...

OK, now I'm really done, LOL!
Hugs to you all!!

    Dang, you bent over backwards for the guy. I agree, no point in making your drive miserable. You were sweet to make sure he made it to the party.

    The cake is really something else.
    Carly is sooo cute, and Preston is growing into a little man.

    Hugs Beth

    You are awesome!!! The way you are able to be there for Emily and put your feelings aside at her party while still maintaining your own boundaries where her father is concerned is so admirable!!! Kudos to you! That is not easy!!!!!!
