It turned out GREAT!
Today was the day! My daughter got her hair cut and colored. We got there at 8:30, right on time. They took us back a little bit late, but not too bad. We didn't walk out of the... Read more
Getting up very early tomorrow to go to the gym before I take my daughter to get her hair cut and colored. She is 12 and VERY excited. She originally wanted to dye her hair blonde on top and purple underneath. I explained to her that her fat... Read more
My new I-Pod ROCKS!!
I wasn't planning to add any music to my I-Pod until this weekend. The worry was that if I started, I wouldn't stop playing with it and would end up staying up way too late.
I couldn't help myself. I loaded 10 songs...and it was awesome... Read more
I got a new I-POD!!!!!!
I had an I-Pod that was used when I got it. It was nice because it was pre-loaded with over 500 songs and I like most all of them. I used it for a couple of years before it died about six months ago. Since then, I have been working out withou... Read more
The Boise area is hosting the Special Olympics and I'm really happy about that. Even though I won't get to go watch any of the events in person, there is extensive coverage by all of the local channels.
Also, my kids' schools are getting... Read more
Making a movie!
My daughter's class is reading Your Mother is a Neanderthal, or something like that. To make sure they are paying attention, they have to put together some project that summarizes the book. My daughter and her friend decided to make a movie. ... Read more
So very tired
It was a long week and I was very ready for this day to end. After I got home and made dinner for everyone (sandwiches and stew), I headed in to change for the gym. I came so very close to just changing into PJ's instead of work out gear. The... Read more
Even before I made it home, I needed to make a side trip. My daughter was studying at a friend's house, so I picked her up before going home. As soon as I got home, I made dinner for everyone (even me!) and ate. Put together a stew in the cr... Read more
My son stayed home from school today. His ear hurts, he's coughing and he threw up some today as well. My husband has a milder case of whatever my son has. I leaned over to give my son a kiss and he had a coughing spell just as I got in front... Read more
8.5 MPH on the treadmill !!!
If any of you watch The Biggest Loser, you know that the trainers have the contestants run for 30 seconds at a seemingly rapid pace. Usually it's 6.0 mph in the first couple of weeks. Sometimes faster.
Tonight, I went to the gym and it ... Read more
Old pants are new again!
I'm one of those people who pick out their clothes for the next day before going to bed at night. That way, I don't actually have to wake up to get to work. ... Read more
Today was better
I went to the gym today, again partly because it's what I do. DH isn't feeling well, so didn't come with me. So, I took advantage of being on my own by lifting upper body. It's been awhile, so lifting the same weights was harder than it used ... Read more
Bored, but still going
Went to the gym today, because that's what I do on Saturday mornings. When I got there, I didn't want to do anything! I didn't feel like lifting, didn't want to do cardio, nothing!! I got on the elliptical and punched in 40 minutes before I c... Read more
Cheat day all the way!
Today was my last day of "forced" time off from my job. I have been looking forward to it all week because it is a day for me. I slept in, spent some time on the Spark People site and then headed to the gym. Afterwards, I got my grocery list ... Read more
LDL number out of whack!
As part of my ongoing attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I had my blood work done. The numbers all came back as "within range" except my LDL. I was floored! It's not really high, but it is higher than is considered healthy. I didn't th... Read more
