Today has been a fairly good day. Got up early and hit the gym before it got crowded. DH made breakfast and then I took a nap. Did some laundry, read my book, took another nap. Then DH and I went to Barnes and Noble. I got a daily calendar ... Read more
Bunco - Cheat Day
Tonight is Bunco, an excuse to get together with friends, eat and drink and be merry. For those who don't know, Bunco is a dice game. There are three tables with three die at each table. There are twelve players divided among the three tables... Read more
Mammogram for Me!
This month I turned 40. With that momentous event comes some great fun...yearly mammograms! I've had one previously to serve as a baseline. I guess I'm lucky in that I have small breasts so there was no pain. Only a little discomfort with th... Read more
Boot Camp Blog
The bonus challenge for the Boot Camp today was to write a blog about the challenge. Unfortunately, I'm a little disillusioned today. The workouts are short and not too difficult. You can tailor them to your fitness level. That being said, I... Read more
The gym was still full, even though DH and I got there later than normal. Instead of using the elliptical, I got on a treadmill. My carpool partner mentioned that he had run a half mile over the weekend, a quarter of a mile at a time. I tend ... Read more
500 Spark Goodie Points
Woo Hoo!!! I got 500 Spark Goodie Points on the wheel today!! I am going shopping! I know it's not real money, but who cares?!? Shopping is shopping!!
Good, better anyway.
Each member of the family had to (yes, right now, it's still a force) to choose one type of vegetable to eat with their dinner. Two had celery, one had carrots. I let them know that this was a new thing in our house, so if they wanted a partic... Read more
Today was my bi-weekly grocery trip. After having the family make the menu (sort of), I made the grocery list. I even added extra veggies. And, to top it off, I spent less than normal! Yippee!!
After I relax for a minute or two, I'll cl... Read more
Okay, that worked!
I may have mentioned once or twice that my family is getting to me when it comes to planning dinners. I've tried having them make the menus (no go) and threatened to go on strike (no one believed me). Since I need to get my grocery shopping do... Read more
Because of the increased popularity of my gym, my family went later tonight than usual. Left the house at 7:30 instead of shortly after 6:00. My daughter came as well. It was a trade-off for the cake she had yesterday. It was nice! We each ... Read more
I blogged earlier about my family's picky eating habits. Tonight was another disappointing night. I made a dinner that I've made before and everyone said I could make it again. We haven't had it for over a month and still, my hubby "forced" h... Read more
New Year's Resolution
I'm all for New Year's Resolutions if they give someone the push they need to make the changes in their life. But, on a totally selfish, living-in-my-own-world kind of way, I wish people wouldn't make them! I went to the gym last night at my n... Read more
Eating cos I was bored
I knew I was doing it and just kept on doing it. I was bored and I ate. And I ate some more. Aaargh!!! There are always peanuts in my cube area, so they are all calling my name!!! I was able to ignore the peanuts, but the chips and cookies ... Read more
Saw these shoes in November and LOVED them! But, they were $30+ and the store had 1/2 size too big and a 1/2 size too small. Found them today, in my size and on sale!! Trying to add a picture. Yippee!!
Well, it worked. Having wet nails, accompanied by the wonderful aroma (not!) of fingernail polish, kept me from putting additional food in my mouth. Turning pages was a bit of a challenge, but it did keep my mind off the food.
Tonight i... Read more
