OK the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th 16th, 17th & 18th Days of the Rest Of MY Life

Thursday, December 18, 2008

OK - so sometimes LIFE really interferes with trying to track and blog and make sure this very public forum is my place for honesty.

I have been slammed at work - which is horribly unfair!! and I have been running around trying to help my mother getting ready to move to Illinois.

It has been bitterly cold here in Colorado so caring for the horses takes much more effort and work!

BUT anyway...

I have been good.

I have been working out in the company gym regularly. I go at least 4 days per week!

I will tell you when done correctly those darn ball crunches convince you that child birth was mild discomfort! And I must be doing them correctly because I am developing a small amount of definition in the ab area. I would not call it a six pack - heck I wouldn't even call if a kids size drink from Wendy's. But it is looking much less Santa like!!!!

And I have been following a fairly strict nutrition plan. I am trying to see that each and every calorie I eat is nutritious and value filled. Good protein - lots of fresh veggies and fruit - apples and baby carrots are definitely my friends - salads! I am trying to limit carbs to high quality high fiber stuff only. I am actually developing a like for hard boiled eggs especially with a tablespoon of fresh salsa.

Now the funnies for your day....... since my family is still giggling!!!

On Monday, it was miserably cold (the high was 5 or 6 F) and snowy and icy. So I went to feed the horses directly after work instead of after dinner. I stopped at the bottom of the drive to get out and open the garage door. As I reached for the door my dh whipped it up from the inside and I nearly fell and broke a hip since he startled me so badly. BUT that was not the worst of it.

I pulled into the garage and got out and took my jacket off and shook hay out of it and threw it in my truck and shut the door. Then I realized I still had my beanie on and went to throw it in the truck. Whoops - locked! And guess where the keys were - yep in the ignition. So after several hours or trying to open it ourselves and $150 to a locksmith my truck was then again unlocked. And of course my dh has said he is getting me a spare key for Christmas.

On Wednesday morning around 10:00 I went to have a smoke (yes I know evil habit - please do not lecture me) and go to the restroom. As I came back to my desk to sit down - I hear a rip. Yep- there went the seat of my favorite jeans. Not the seam but the very fabric. Fortunately I was wearing a long sweater vest and I could quickly excuse myself to run home. I live 5-10 minutes from the office. My lovely daughter is crying she is laughing so hard when I get home. And of course all I can think of this is the only pair of jeans I can get my fat butt into. Well I guess I couldn't since the seat split out. BUT I had the last laugh - I could get my fat butt into a size smaller pair of jeans in my closet. I did have to lay down to zip them (you have too I bet) but once they were on they fit pretty well.

Now the non funny stuff but also good...

A co-worker commented today, my face is losing weight (hopefully the rest of my body will follow)

My mother is actually packing and there should not be this last minute hysterical OMG - we have to stay up 'til the wee hours to get her and my sister's stuff packed by the 27th.

So now that I have you caught up - I will try to stay caught up!!

Blessings to all................
