Scales lie!

Sunday, June 14, 2009      0 comments

Okay, it's not the scale lying, it's me lying to myself. I set my range to be between 130 and 135. I have consistently been over the 135 for the last two weeks. Not much over, just 1 - 2 pounds, but that's enough. I'm going back to my weight... Read more

Do you know what happens when you microwave a cell phone?

Sunday, June 14, 2009      4 comments

I do! Yesterday, I get a phone call from a number that I don't recognize. I usually don't answer if I don't know who it is, but it was a local number and I thought it might be my kids calling. It was. My son was on the line and almost in tea... Read more

Progress and Initial tests

Saturday, June 13, 2009      1 comments

So, I started the 200 squats challenge today. According to the chart, if I could do more than 31 (for my age group) I ranked "excellent". I did 70. That's excellent even for the young whipper snappers (under 30)! Woo Hoo! So, I'm starting o... Read more

Okay, dinner first. DH made tacos. Yum! Even if he made stuff I hate (like Sour Patch Kids), I would have still said THANK YOU and eaten it. emoticonRead more

My status yesterday mentioned that I was tired of cooking. I mentioned it to my DH as well. He has agreed to cook dinner tomorrow night! Yippee!!! Every once in awhile, you just gotta let people know when you're done and they can pick up the... Read more

It's bad, but I laughed pretty hard...

The guy I car pool with is an avid cyclist. The road to and from work has a portion that is VERY windy with no shoulders. I personally would never ride my bike on that road. Drivers have difficulty seeing other people on the road and there is... Read more

8-minute mile and more

Tuesday, June 09, 2009      2 comments

Okay, I was supposed to do an hour long DVD for my workout today. My heart just wasn't in it. So, I decided to go for a short two-mile run/jog instead. About two minutes into it I decided to see if I could run an eight minute mile (one of the... Read more

A nice lazy Sunday

Slept in until about 8:30 this morning. DH made breakfast (YUM!) and then I headed to the gym. Oh, did a load of laundry first. Only took a little over two hours to wash and dry the entire load! I LOVE having my dryer vent clear! I will def... Read more

Tired, but done good...and dryer news!

I slept in until 8:00 this morning. I didn't really want to get up, but I had things to do and only a few hours to do them (like every other day!). I got some laundry started and then told the kids I was going to the gym. The ONLY thing they ... Read more

So, we lost two out of three games, but we were still scheduled to play again. We got there and were told that we might not play until 7:15 (two hours later!). Luckily, the team that forfeited to us didn't show again so we took there spot in t... Read more

Thursday, June 04, 2009      2 comments

We were scheduled to play today at 5:00 and we're playing one of the other teams from our home town. We got about 40 minutes into the game when we started seeing lightning strikes. Up until then, the girls had been playing very well. They wer... Read more

Results of tournament, day 1

Thursday, June 04, 2009      2 comments

Our first game started right at 5:00. Unfortunately, the other team only had seven girls. Need eight to play. We pitched to them. The deal was we would play until either an eighth girl showed or three outs. We got the three outs before thei... Read more

Ohhhhh...that's what I was thinking!

Tonight, we had a four hour practice scheduled. Yes, four hours with 10 teenage (or almost teenage) girls. There was a huge improvement in attitude, energy level, teamwork, you name it! We worked on everything we could think of and the girls ... Read more

OMG!!! Can you say AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH? Tonight was my first practice with my daughter's softball team. What a bunch of GIRLS! LOL!! They were jibber-jabbering the entire time. Sometimes, the jibber-jabber was mean-spirited, sometimes i... Read more

Slept in until 9:00. Made breakfast since today is DH's birthday. Took a nap. Went to a meeting for the softball tournament. Made dinner. Went to the gym. Will finish a book. Can't ask for much more than that! ... Read more
