Happy New Year!

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Yesterday, I went to WW and decided to get it over and done with and weigh in. I knew I was up. Technically, I didn't have to weigh in b/c I'm lifetime, but, I said, "I'm just gonna do it!" So, I did. I was up 1.4 lbs. That just gave me the incentive to get back on track right then! After the meeting, I ran to Ralph's to pick up some things. Got home and Rachel and I made Challah in honor of Rosh Hashana. I used to bake every week with the boys & I felt bad that Rachel never had that experience. (Long story as to why I baked every week. Used to be orthodox, now I'm not, yadda, yadda, yadda!). She loved rolling out, braiding, brushing with egg! Here's a picture of the final project:

How yummy is she?? Wanted to go to the gym to take a spin class, but, I found out that Rachel had soccer practice at 6:15. There went that. That meant that I actually took a day off of exercising. Kind of weird, but much needed!

Today, I was back to my normal routine. Dropped my son off at school and ran to the gym. Did 60 min on the arctrainer (intervals) and then, 60 mins of strength training: upper body. Couldn't imagine doing legs just yet. Came home and my USC boy came home to go shopping at Target with my credit card!! Don't even ask how much we spent?? Came home, ate something and finally, hopped into the shower. Got ready pretty fast b/c I had a 12:15 meeting (Girl scout planning w/ the other leaders). We planned out the whole year. We are so proud of ourselves. Picked up my high schooler and came home. Hung out and watched one show on my DVR before I had to make dinner (and before Direct tv came to install the new system). Made a nice dinner: chicken cacciatore, noodles and homemade challah. (I added beets to my meal & only had about 1/2 cup of noodles).

Catching up on all my emails. Now, I have to go and figure out this new Direct t.v. system. Gotta make sure I DVR all my shows!! Tomorrow, a busy day, but a good one. Wishing all my Jewish friends a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

Until tomorrow-
