Lots of things, some little, some not so...
1. My grandma is in the hospital. She had surgery on an abdominal aortal aneurysm. She's known about it for years but just assumed it would burst one day and kill her instantly (sorry if that sounds harsh, her words). Instead, it started lea... Read more
Going to bed early...well, early for me.
Tomorrow, I have a conference call at 5:30 pm (yep, a full 30 minutes AFTER I'm supposed to leave work). And, my son has football practice. Because of the extra busyness tomorrow, I don't see where I will have time to work out after work. Tha... Read more
Today was the big Jamboree for my son and his football team. Our area has a population of about 400,000. I think five of those folks stayed home today! LOL! Our team (Go Bulldogs!!) was scheduled to play at 11:00. Which meant, of course, we... Read more
Tonight was game one of our end-of-season tournament. I don't know if they went by record to set the schedule, but since we had the first game, I'm guessing they did! I decided that my glove was broken. I couldn't stop a ball to save my life... Read more
I am a planner and I like my plans...
and I don't do well when my plans are changed. Don't get me wrong, I don't go into lock-down mode or anything like that. I just get a little cranky and miffed while I try to retro-fit my plan.
Why do I bring this up you ask? (Yes, I am... Read more
One of the ladies at work has some very productive cucumber plants. Every couple of days she brings in cukes to share. I always get at least one and, if any are left when everyone else has theirs, I take the rest. Today, I used my last two. ... Read more
School starts tomorrow! Yippee! Hooray! Hurrah!!
Why am I so happy that school starts tomorrow? Because I'm not going!! Hee hee!! I started back to college in 2000 (my son was one year old) to get a second degree. I was not using my Bachelor of Business Administration in the job I had and... Read more
One good thing about work...
Yes, only one! LOL! For me, work put me back into my "rut" where I actually practice good habits. I ate more regularly today than I did for my entire vacation. I made better snack choices and I was even in my calorie range! Granted, I'm a l... Read more
Sunny beaches, the vacation is over!
Man, did this week ever fly! I am SO not ready to go back to work. I ended up doing something and going somewhere EVERY day this week. I really wanted to sit and read my book (and hopefully nod off!) and that really didn't happen. I did get ... Read more
Bunco and me
Every month (or so) a group of us get together to eat, drink and be merry. We use Bunco as the excuse. We all bring something edible to share and our own drinks. As always, I took my peanut butter balls. My drinks of choice tonight were one ... Read more
A day at the fair with chocolate-covered bacon!
Okay, so there was no chocolate-covered bacon at my fair. At least, none that I found. Not that I was looking that hard for it! The unusual thing I saw at the fair was deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. ... Read more
Goodness, gracious, it was a long day!
I was up and around by 8:00 this morning. WAAAAYYYYYY too early for a vacation day, but I did it anyway. After breakfast, I headed to the gym. Since I knew I had softball tonight, I only did 30 minutes on the elliptical. No strength training... Read more
I started doing some strength training again today. Started slow so I can still move tomorrow! LOL! I did bench presses, bicep curls, overhead triceps extensions and assisted pullups. Hopefully I won't be too sore tomorrow.
Tomorrow wi... Read more
I have GOT to stop vacationing from the healthy eating!
I am on vacation from work, not from myself. I have not made healthy choices for at least the last two days...okay four! I'm starting again right now! I will be within my calorie range tomorrow. I will workout tomorrow. I will take time for... Read more
The Ice Caves will never be the same!
Okay...so I messed with the schedule. But, I'm on vacation, so that's allowed! LOL! The kids and I headed to the Ice Caves today. It took 2 1/2 hours to get there and another 2 1/2 hours back. We spent about 1 1/2 hours there. But, the kids... Read more
