First snow of the season fell last night

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      1 comments

This is what my backyard looked like at about 9:30AM today (please ignore the mess in the yard LOL): The snow is still here and it's almost 11AM now makes me wonder if... Read more

Okay so hubster just got me this game and I'm frustrated already. I did a workout circut on it this morning and my warm-up burned 12 calories in 6 minutes my circut through twice in 20 minutes burned 16 calories (this is a WTF moment for me) an... Read more

Still waiting to hear about leave of absence

Friday, November 13, 2009      2 comments

Man who knew that trying to get time off with a doctor's note could be so difficult. Our HR director hasn't been in the office in almost a week (when I sent my first email to her and faxed my doctor's note in). All I need to know is if there i... Read more

A day spent remembering

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      2 comments

I attended our Rememberance Day ceremonies in town and listened to my daughter (along with 5 other girls from her school) sing "In Flander's Fields". I spent the time at the ceremonies thinking about what our military personnel do to keep us fr... Read more

and that's pretty much where the good time ended today. I enjoyed my Gold's Gym Cardio workout and a 20 minute jog in place with the Wii Fit Plus and I felt great going to work this morning. Things were good all morning, got done what needed t... Read more

Another weekend down

Sunday, November 08, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday we went grocery shopping and we also stopped at Future Shop and I found an intersting puzzle game in the clearance rack. I can't pass up a game that has puzzles and cost me less than $5 for my NDS. We also rented Lego Rock Band for t... Read more

Grocery shopping fun

Saturday, November 07, 2009      2 comments

I am often struck by why they tell you to go shopping alone for groceries. Now I know. It's not the random crap or the begging that gets me it's the constant bickering my girls do, they are 14 and 11 and are constantly at one another and it se... Read more

Re-evaluating my goals

Friday, November 06, 2009      3 comments

I decided that perhaps I should take inventory of what I'm doing and where I want to be by December 15. Originally I had thought that 20 lbs. would be a good goal. Well after almost reaching that mark I decided that perhaps I should go a littl... Read more

Let the cards fall where they may

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      2 comments

After almost 2 months without a voice I got my doctor to write a very short note to my employer suggesting that perhaps 2-4 weeks of voice rest (ie. don't go to work for up to a month) is in order. The specialist I saw recommended a voice t... Read more

Getting back in the groove

Sunday, November 01, 2009      3 comments

I have been flat on my back and so drained the past 5 days that I don't what end is up lately. The autumn weather and kids back in school make for a time of year ripe for me to get sick. Add in stress from work and a lack of sleep and it is li... Read more

Younger one has been sick the last 2 days (she's home again today and will be the rest of the week). Guess who on their day off woke up feeling like CRAP. I have to get some baking done for my Dad's birthday and if I want bread for sandwiches.... Read more

Monday Monday

Let's see I got up on time however that is because my cat decided that I needed him on my belly at 4:15AM (couldn't wait 35 minutes when my alarm would go off?). Got in a good workout and managed to get to work on time. I got a break today (un... Read more

Sunday at the nuthouse

Sunday, October 25, 2009      2 comments

Well I've survived another Sunday here at the nuthouse. Younger one woke up today feeling kind of crappy and hasn't eaten a whole lot (although she did well at dinner). I think she's afraid to miss school but if she feels this way tomorrow she... Read more

Trouble meeting minimum recommendations

Saturday, October 24, 2009      10 comments

on carbohydrates and protien. I've noticed over the past few weeks that I either miss the minimum or just barely get past it on these two. When I do get the right amount of protien I go over on fat. Any recommendations on getting a little... Read more
