Ok, now that that is on the table.....I have a new position at work, I am away from my desk and away from staring at the food machines 10 feet in front of my face. I am still working 12 hours but I have my own office now and plan to put my little fridge in it as soon as I get another desk. I have these next 4 days off and I hope to be set up on my diet again come Monday morning. <BR> My horse and I had a rough season but ended up at Kentucky horse p... Thu, 27 Nov 2014 11:18:24 EST hi again.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5430311 Just a quick note before I head off to work. I had another show this weekend and we did horribly. Out of 4 rides(2 were to be qualifiers) the first one had awful footing. I thought it was my horse until I watched the other riders. The ssecond one(q) we did much better and I think it should have been a qaulifying score but the judge did not think so. Sad, but this is the first time I have felt like we were discriminated against for his breed. We were 5 solid points below everyone else and... Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:37:01 EST Been a long time.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5420727 Well, I am still here. I just thought I would let you all know what has been going on in my life. I have been working 12 hour days and will continue for the next 4 weeks or so. The other employee who does the morning shift got the recieving job and I have been the only one working the shipping dock. He come in and does the last few hours or the first few hours of the day and I have the rest. The new replacement was announced last week and he will start training Monday. On top of that I ... Sun, 14 Jul 2013 12:53:50 EST short one... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5354497 This will be short tonight. <BR> Diet.....I am not sure. I will add it tomorrow. <BR> exercise..none scheduled today.spent the day with the GD...made breakfast for everyone and hubby went to golf and then to his brothers......he has had a sore throat and tonight he is miserably sick. We will chat again tomorrow.... Sun, 12 May 2013 22:41:17 EST Feeling good and bad about today.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5353479 My diet was not on track but I will put everything in. I did not eat until noon and I was up at 5ish so I was starving. I kept pretty busy with volunteering at the show for four hours and then riding 3 tests followed by the ride home and cleaning the barn and then going to the store with the GrandD. I get to wake up tomorrow and cook breakfast for everybody that shows. I hope to get a little cleaning done before they get here. That ol' 8-6 shift all week kind of interfered with my house ... Sat, 11 May 2013 21:45:08 EST I am almost ready to go.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5352511 First, diet, still good. <BR> <BR> I did not exercise today and did not even attempt it due to my early and full day. <BR> <BR> I went in to work at 4 am and did not clock out until 3:30. Then, since I was already running behind, I stopped and chatted with the payroll lady, who I chat with often. <BR> <BR> I got home and the hubby was about 15 minutes behind me. I went up to the barn and did chores, brought the horses in, and then prepared the trailer. I have everything except my stock ... Fri, 10 May 2013 20:22:33 EST tomorrow just got easier http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5351377 Diet, right on track and so is my exercising. I did 30 minutes of cardio. <BR> I woke u this morning and kind of hung out on the couch for a few minutes longer than I should have. I still got done on time and started on my way to work. I went a different way than usual because I have been going in at 8 and have been hitting traffic. Well, my secondary route proved to be a bad idea. I got stopped on the freeway and then had to take a detour. Needless to say I clocked in at exactly 8 o'cl... Thu, 9 May 2013 20:29:41 EST preparing... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350332 My diet is still doing good. I exercised and also ate well. <BR> I worked 10 hours today again, and it went pretty smooth. <BR> On the way home I spent money on the powerball which is 222 million. It was our work group winnings and they decided to let it roll. It was kind of fun buying all those tickets! :) <BR> Once I got home I decided I was going to ride Swing one more time before our show. He did well on most of it, but he had to kind of hop over the muddy spots in the field. I ... Wed, 8 May 2013 21:35:41 EST the weekend is rushing upon me... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5349035 Diet: Mostly on track. I ate most of my breakfast and wanted to let my cream of wheat cool. I went up and turned the horses out, got in my car and headed to work forgetting all about my cream of wheat. lol I got a chicken wrap out of the vending machine and added it to my calories. I know it was not as many calories as I have listed but it was the best I could do. <BR> Exercise: Another day and another exercise done! 30 minutes of cardio.. <BR> I worked 8-5 today. That is 2 hours ea... Tue, 7 May 2013 20:20:03 EST Hmm...interestingly happy.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5347767 Diet: right on track. I swapped my dinner, because I did not like mushrooms which were a main course on the one on my meal plan. I also have a lot of food prepped for this week as well. I am off to a good start. <BR> Exercise: Oh my Dear Nicole......I am sure you are glad to see me again! I did 50 minutes of strength training before work! <BR> My day started a little before 6. I exercised and showered, made my breakfast and turned the horses out. I was still tired by the time I clocked... Mon, 6 May 2013 19:17:22 EST yeppers, I am back on the wagon! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5346714 Diet: Right on track. I had some popcorn at the movies, but I had already told myself it was OK before I went. That was not a battle I was going to fight. <BR> I also have made up most of my lunches already and will finish making a dinner item that I want prepared ahead of time. I still have some veggie chili and I don't want to make more until I have eaten the older chili. <BR> Exercise: Drum roll please....Yep! I did a half hour of my cardio exercise this morning. I am on track for ... Sun, 5 May 2013 22:03:38 EST Ready, set, go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5345744 Ok, first, we had a great day today! My oldest granddaughter had her birthday party at my house and we had a great turnout! We gave pony rides and had all the normal stuff too...cake, food, and even a pinata. It was a great time and lasted 2 hours longer than it should have. <BR> Now, on to me. I went out shopping today so that I can get back on track. Sunday is the start of a new week for me and a start of me getting back on track again. Tomorrow, I will get up and eat my breakfast and... Sat, 4 May 2013 22:55:13 EST The little spunky one.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5342598 Today I worked 12 hours. Then I came home and cleaned he stalls and readied them for the horses. I brought them all in but did not feed them. I rode all of them first. Mason the pony was first. He did try and throw me off. My legs wrap so far under his belly that it got to him. My hubby had a good laugh watching on the sidelines! <BR> Then I rode Max. I lunged both of them first by the way. Max was sweating after just a few minutes. He was super wound up. I got on him and rode for ... Wed, 1 May 2013 22:49:14 EST Thank you Leonard and a great ride today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5341187 I need to eat some more calories today. I am getting up at 2:30 all week and I am getting off at noon if we are slow. Today we were not. I left at 2:15. The problem is that I am trying not to change the times I eat so I am nibbling all day long. I usually get through my breakfast by the time I clock out. I am missing lunch though because I get busy after I leave. <BR> Once this week is over I will have a few early days next week but I should be getting back to normal. At least I hope s... Tue, 30 Apr 2013 20:50:31 EST behind... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5340073 We got home yesterday evening. I posted 2 pics from my sons wedding on my sparkpage. It was lovely. I am not posting much tonight as I am working 4-12 all week long and I need to go to bed. I am 6 days behind on reading everyones posts. I will catch up eventually! lol <BR> <BR> Diet, good for today, maybe a bit low <BR> <BR> Exercise none. I only got a few hours of sleep and I passed out when I got home. <BR> <BR> Weight. I need to weigh myself tomorrow. I was already on my way ... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 22:20:20 EST A big day tomorrow. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5334789 I am heading to NC tomorrow morning and will be back to posting blogs Monday. My son will be getting married on Saturday. We have the trailer packed with tons of stuff for their apartment they will be getting as well. My older son and his girlfriend will be riding with us as well. We leave here in 6 hours and have a 10 hour journey in front of us. See you all on Monday! Thu, 25 Apr 2013 00:16:50 EST And now I am behind.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333522 Diet, ok, exercise none. It really looks like being on vacation is taking it's toll on me. I am not gaining any weight, but as busy as we have been with all that is going on I am really just maintaining at this point. <BR> I took our long haired cat into the vet/groomers today. He had managed to get burrs on his belly and I was not really willing to try and get them out myself. There is a new vet in town and they have a groomer on site so we gave her a try. She was able to groom him, b... Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:40:59 EST Long day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5332324 I did, OK on my diet today.,,,as far as calories.....I at subway for lunch and Wendys for dinner. I had no breakfast and my one bad food was a chicken sandwich with mayo. <BR> <BR> I had hoped to start my Monday off with a workout and I had hoped to get my 'to do' list done. That did not happen. My hubby went to go get some gravel for us and my brother in law. He had told me he wanted me to go, but I really did not think it through. I had plans on doing a whole bunch more cleaning and p... Mon, 22 Apr 2013 22:38:12 EST More done and leaving the chaos alone.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5331060 No exercise for today. <BR> <BR> I ate normal for the day. We went out for dinner and I had charbroiled chicken, green beans and cottage cheese, I drank water and had three pieces of bread. It is the small long loaves so it was 3 small pieces. <BR> <BR> I finished almost all of my clothes today. I caught up all of the laundry so I can finish up my work clothes tonight. I will get my socks done tomorrow and then I will be done. <BR> I packed up my son's room and my older son rearran... Sun, 21 Apr 2013 22:00:04 EST Energy and then fizzle... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5330176 Diet: Hmm...I ate a good breakfast and then went to a baby shower and ate a piece of cake and some animal crackers covered in icing. However, it was hard to refuse a little 2 year old that befriended me and was trying to feed them to me. I did resist the one she had slobbered all over though. ;) <BR> <BR> Exercise: None <BR> <BR> Today, I woke up and stayed in bed with the hubby watching TV. Then I made my breakfast and made him breakfast. Then I cleaned out my whole closet. The go... Sat, 20 Apr 2013 23:38:43 EST Friday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5329135 Diet: on track. <BR> <BR> Exercise : none <BR> <BR> Energy level : None...lol <BR> <BR> I had a long day of work today. I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow. I am super tired and heading to bed. Tomorrow night I will catch up on all my SP stuff. Good night all....we'll talk more tomorrow! :) <BR> <BR> PS....weighed in early this week since I will not weigh in until NEXT Monday. I am down one more pound.. :) Must have been the lesson yesterday. <BR> <BR> Quote of the day tha... Fri, 19 Apr 2013 22:00:55 EST Lovely Thursday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5328049 I did not exercise today, but I planned it that way. Getting up at 2:30 to go into work was going to be hard enough after working over the day before. <BR> <BR> My diet was kind of all over the place. I was extremely tired so I had a diet pepsi and some doritos and a cheeseburger at work. Since I had eaten breakfast at 3 my hunger pains were all over the place. I made up for it by not being hungry at dinner time. I am too tired, I think so I only ate a little, but tired to get a mix i... Thu, 18 Apr 2013 21:27:29 EST short and sweet... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5326982 Diet: right on track <BR> <BR> Exercise: Yep! Did it! <BR> <BR> Work today: busy <BR> <BR> I will catch up with all your posts tomorrow or the day after. I got home late and by the time I got everything done it was....well is......10:20 pm and I have to be at work at 4 am tomorrow. Wed, 17 Apr 2013 22:19:56 EST A second good day.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5325606 Ok, still did not exercise again today. I really need to get back on the wagon with the exercise. <BR> <BR> Diet: That went well, so far. I ate lunch with many of our Customer Service representatives. They were in for a visit to our plant today. Since I work the truck dock as a lead, I talk to them often. I have met several, but several were now to me. I ate lunch with them. I had a little potato salad and a reasonable sandwich with wheat bread and mustard. I am still within range f... Tue, 16 Apr 2013 20:01:51 EST Not much to say... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5324438 I did not exercise this morning. I should have though. Strike one for the week. However, I am not totally starving either. <BR> <BR> I am on track with my diet. I bought extra Tilapia for the kids for dinner this weekend, but they did not eat dinner with us so now I have 3 servings to eat up. I had one for dinner tonight. I did not get to the store until after work today so I changed to meals that I had food for. Sadly, I was unable to buy any strawberries. The ones at the store were... Mon, 15 Apr 2013 21:04:06 EST a day of driving.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5323314 First: I never caught up with my exercise. <BR> <BR> Second: I blew my diet out of the water. The calories are probably in range, but not the ratios of carbs and fats and such. <BR> <BR> Third" I had pop today. 2 large glasses of diet Pepsi. <BR> <BR> It seems when the GD is around we get so busy. Today, I made breakfast for the hubby, brother in law and father in law. Then the second crew got there at 11:30 and I did it over again for my son, his girlfriend, and the GD. Then we he... Sun, 14 Apr 2013 22:31:05 EST Long long day, but good! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5322240 Well, I got up this morning and helped my hubby get "pinky" out of the pasture. That is our dump trailer. It was full of manure and he took it to a compost business. I went to the BMV and when I got there, they were on the 40s and I had number 81. I felt like I was in Beetlejuice! I waited an hour and after just a few minutes at the desk(I had all my paperwork together and correct) I had my plates. I came home and ate my breakfast and watched a little TV. My plan was to finish watching... Sat, 13 Apr 2013 22:10:28 EST a busy weekend ahead.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5321344 Well, I barely exercised today. I waited as long as I could and finally got motivated to exercise. I did feel better once I did though. Sometimes that is the only thing that gets me started in the morning. Not even the possible weight loss motivates me sometimes. <BR> My diet: hmm...well....I ate everything I should have and also had two small pieces of pepperoni pizza....So, I guess I did sort of OK. I have been starving all week long. I hope I can muddle along until Monday and get a ... Fri, 12 Apr 2013 23:20:09 EST Oh why do I work so hard at nothing???? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5320115 So, I did my exercise today. 50 minutes with coach Nicole and I swear I am super hungry all day long. Not to mention that my breakfast was half a bagel, a slice of swiss cheese and 4 oz. of apple juice. I was hungry by the time I got to work. My lunch never made up for it. I at a normal dinner but added 1.5 oz. of tortilla chips to it ans was still only at 1350 calories for the day. <BR> <BR> Work was pretty good today and we all basically got out on time. I stayed to load a late truck... Thu, 11 Apr 2013 21:11:24 EST lots of little things.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5318947 OK, Exercise, check <BR> <BR> Diet: Check. I have to watch my cheating.....I bought more walnuts and I swear I need to stay away from them. I am still in my range though. <BR> <BR> My day: I had a busy day at work. We had a lot of trucks, but we really worked hard and the loaders just did a bang up job all day long! I ended up staying over an hour doing paperwork and got home late, of course. The vet is coming out tomorrow so I had to brush all the horses. Of course the hubby help... Wed, 10 Apr 2013 21:46:10 EST A nice easy day at work.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5317583 Well, I am right on track with my weight loss plan. I exercised today as scheduled and ate what I should be. I just finished my white bean soup with applesauce for dinner. I love that stuff. It was one of the meal plans on SP. <BR> The weather was wonderful today and hit the mid 70s. I hear it is supposed to get cold again by the weekend, which is a shame. I was hoping to get the winter grime washed of the horses this week! bummer. <BR> Yesterday at work was a difficult day. Today w... Tue, 9 Apr 2013 20:33:17 EST Lost a pound or 3.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5316483 OK, exercise: I am on track this week for my exercise and did 30 minutes of cardio today. One day down and 5 to go! LOL <BR> Diet: I had my normal diet today. I swapped yesterdays dinner for today's since the kids were over and I had plenty of chicken. So, I had nacho for lunch and dinner today. I love nachos though, so it was all good. <BR> Last week I gained 2 pounds I I deserved it due to being off my exercise and blowing my diet 3 days in a row. This week I made sure I kept with m... Mon, 8 Apr 2013 22:31:19 EST couscous and my son.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5315050 Today I caught up on my exercise. 50 minutes with Coach Nicole aidnd I felt good! It's always nice to be back on track again. <BR> As far as my diet???? Hmmm....Well, I skipped breakfast. I did not get up until 10 or so and then laid around so I decided to just go right to lunch at 2. I must admit that part of the decision was because I tracked my nutrition the best I could and it looked very high so I was feeling a little guilty. I don't think I ate that far out of range, but we will s... Sun, 7 Apr 2013 20:33:55 EST Bucca Di Beppo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5314173 Well, I did not exercise today. Strike one. <BR> <BR> I ate pretty normal, but I snacked a little extra today. I think it was because I was not exercising and I was just sitting around being bored. <BR> I did clean the barn today, but that is not a lot compared to one hour with Coach Nicole. <BR> My sister had her birthday party today and it was dinner at an Italian restaurant. They had no healthy choices there. I wish she had chosen a place that I could have had something healthy to e... Sat, 6 Apr 2013 23:56:58 EST too much chit chat~~~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5313006 Before I lose this: This was sent to my email from Sp so you may have already read it. It makes total sense and I do this as well. There are some foods I totally stay away from and there are some that I can eat a little of and fulfill my cravings. I really do believe that it is good to indulge just a little. Sometimes I will grab a piece of sausage from my husbands pizza or just last night I grabbed ONE cheeto from the bag Nicole was munching one. I feel more satisfied and I don't feel ... Fri, 5 Apr 2013 20:26:52 EST Challenge won! And also, challenge won! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5311888 First, I have won the weight loss competition with my boss at work. The official weigh in is not until tomorrow, but I am ahead by about 10 pounds. I won 2 outfits, a pair of shoes and my boss threw in some jewelry that her daughter is selling! <BR> <BR> OK, about today's challenge: I did get up at 1:30 and I did my 50 minutes of exercise/I also showered, ate breakfast, fed the horses and the cats and headed off to pick up my mother so she could drop me off at work and use my vehicle. Ho... Thu, 4 Apr 2013 20:38:05 EST A big challenge.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5310681 Well, I have eaten on track today. I had to buy some walnuts again, but I only ate a few of them. They were for a cream cheese, walnut, raisin roll up that I love for lunch. Anyways, I did my Bollywood and am on track again like I should be. HOWEVER,,,,,,,,,,I am working 4 am til noon tomorrow and so I have to get up really early to exercise and it is a Coach Nicole day so it will be 50 minutes of working out. I also have to pick up my mom on the way to work so she can use our truck to ... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 21:26:02 EST Lovely Tuesday.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5309332 Today was a good day. I stayed on track with all my meals and took the remaining 2 cupcakes into work. I am not sure who ate them, but they were gone quickly! They were really as good as store bought and my granddaughter had fun making the home made icing with me! I think she liked adding the colors the best. Anyways, I stayed on track eating. <BR> It was easier for me to exercise today. I think maybe it was because it was warmer so it was easier for me to get out from under the covers.... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 20:20:32 EST Well, I guess I deserved this. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5308141 Well, I weighed in and I am up 2 pounds. This is the first time since I started in January and I deserve it. It's not that I am getting close to my goal weight or that I am trying really hard and not getting anywhere. Nope, I ate 3 pieces of Stromboli like pizza on Friday and did not work out. I followed that by eating out Saturday and eating more than I should have. I also did not work out that day either. So, then Saturday night I kept munching on icing while we were making cupcakes. ... Mon, 1 Apr 2013 22:05:20 EST What a day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5306724 Hmmm, so I totally busted myself on my diet. No exercise today. Since I hold myself accountable and then move forward, now is the time to 'account'. I had a regular breakfast and no lunch. I ate one deviled egg, a large piece of ham, a cup plus of green beans and bacon(cooked in with the bacon grease), 2 croissants, multiple pieces of cheese, at least five crackers loaded with a buffalo chicken mix and tons of cream cheese, 2 very unhealthy cupcakes, and that might be it. OK, I did it an... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 21:39:09 EST Tomorrow will fly by... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5305911 Ok, I ate a normal breakfast and had no lunch since I was busy. I ate at Cracker barrel for dinner and had the chicken with rice and cottage cheese and a baked sweet potato. I also had a biscuit with honey. <BR> <BR> I had the day off of exercising. <BR> <BR> The hubby and I slept in today. After breakfast we took the car to get it e checked and it passed! Then we went hunting for Easter basket supplies and for a few things I forgot. We ended up at many stores trying to find the infamo... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 01:32:06 EST busy day with Taylor... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5304891 Well, I did not get my exercise in today. <BR> <BR> I had a good diet going until my son brought over some amazing Stromboli like pizza. I had 3 pieces and some diet Pepsi....... <BR> <BR> I worked 6-2:45 and then went to my sons house and we picked up Taylor. She and I went to the store and then colored eggs, which she has never done at all until last year. She had a hard time picking which ten to take home. She just left and now I am playing catch up on the computer. <BR> <BR> Tomorr... Sat, 30 Mar 2013 00:02:37 EST The weekend is close and I am already behind.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5303730 Well, first of all....I am planning on getting a picture of myself this Sunday since I plan on being clean that day. lol I told Vincent I would post a picture on Fb for him to see so I figured I would put one on here to. I will do a before and after here though. Vincent is my youngest and he is in the army. I will not see him until July He has not seen me since before I started losing weight and wants to see how I am doing. <BR> I had a good day at work, but long. I are still dealing wi... Thu, 28 Mar 2013 21:54:49 EST Dirty face like a child out playing all day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5302558 Today, I had my easy workout of just 30 minutes! Tomorrow will not be so kind.... <BR> <BR> I ate an egg white sandwich with cheese and strawberries for breakfast and a peanut butter sandwich with lowfat cottage cheese, an apple, carrots, and some dressing for lunch. Dinner was a lentil sandwich with frozen yogurt and grapes. I am pretty full too. <BR> <BR> I had a long day at work today. I loaded all day, but at the end of our day we got an order that caused us some problems and we end...

I ate my breakfast and lunch(yummy baked potato with bacon, cheese, broccoli, and sour cream) and dinner as planned. I exercised as I should have as well. <BR> I will be loading trucks all week since Dax is getting to run the whole office by himself. He is doing well and says it is because he had a good trainer. Guess who his trainer was? :D We needed and extra person on the dock due to people on vacation and my boss thought...since we got Dax as the ext... Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:20 EST Monday...We got snow too... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5300060 So, I have been reading on here that many of my spark friends got some snow. Well, I got some here too. I think we got about 3 inches here. I am to the point that I really don't even look at the weather reports now. I just see the little snow sign and go on about my day. I just wish spring would finally spring into action! <BR> <BR> Well, I was basically on track with my diet. I was starving tonight so I swapped my milk with some nonfat cottage cheese and I had some Italian bread inst... Mon, 25 Mar 2013 21:38:12 EST Surrounded by food.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5298553 Well, today was my day off from exercising so the hubby and I were in no rush to get up today. <BR> I made my breakfast and watched some T.V. before I got motivated to clean the house. The hubby took my car over to his brother's house. The check engine light had come on and one brother took the codes to work to find out the problem and now the other brother and hubby are working on it. We have the E check here and it looks like someone emptied out the insides of the catalytic converter. ...

I was so happy to have some cottage cheese again! As well, strawberries were buy one get one free at the store! <BR> I had my egg white sandwich for breakfast and made my hubby some omelet wraps at the same time. I stayed on track with my lunch and dinner as well. <BR> Since I changed my workout day, I needed to workout sometime today. I got it in around 4-5 and even had the husband out for a few minutes, I asked him to try ...

Today, I was a little more motivated to exercise knowing I only have one more day. I can't wait to get to the store and buy some food so I have variety again. This is the 3rd or 4th day of the same breakfast and lunch. <BR> I will call my sister and wish her a happy birthday when I am done blogging. That's just the kind of day it has been. <BR> I sent out a copy of my bill of sale to the insurance company and they will... Fri, 22 Mar 2013 23:07:54 EST My sister is not playing nicely... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5295502 I think we all have days that we don't feel like doing things. I woke up that way. <BR> I hit the snooze 3 times and then went out and curled up on the couch under the covers wondering if the weather was nicer...would I still be curled up? I finally turned on the TV and one Nicole started warming up you gotta get up and start moving. So, I did and I felt better after I got done, even though I had to go shower and get the sweat off.. :) <BR> <BR> I stayed on track with all my foods. I am... Thu, 21 Mar 2013 21:30:47 EST
