Better Late Than Never...

Sunday, May 08, 2011

I know, it's Sunday... I committed to writing a blog every Saturday, and weighing in. This weekend has been pretty crazy though. Friday night we packed up and headed for Ottawa - it's about a 3 hour trip there. We stayed the night with my husband's Aunt and Cousin who we haven't seen in a few years. It was super awesome seeing them, and the lil' ones. We didn't get home again until Saturday night and I was exhausted from driving so I didn't log in. I did have a bit of an "off" weekend - pizza, Beaver Tail (pastry). But I'm not going to fret over this! OH! I even packed some weights, my Spark book, and a Women's Health magazine for our trip! My husband kinda chuckled when I pulled out a dumbbell during the drive up and started doing some curls. It was a good chuckle though, more or less feeling proud of all the changes. Love it! This week I did alright in moving towards my goals. I did find Onederland - which I'm stoked about. I am blogging (albeit a day late). I did track my cals for each day - with the exception of Friday / Saturday. I have been working out. Gosh, my thighs finally recovered from the "Power Sculpt" video I put them through on Monday. I'm feeling good. In control. Happy. I'm taking my vitamin, drinking my water... can't underestimate the power of even these smallest day to day health trends. I'm not sure what more to say... I'm right in the middle of making dinner tonight and trying to get caught up on laundry. It's also my hubby's birthday today - so trying to take good care of him. :)

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MY WONDERFUL SPARK FRIENDS WHO ARE MOMS - in any sense of the word - bio-mom, step-mom, role model, foster mom... You all deserve big hugs, and lots of love today and every day. xoxo

Anyway, here's to a new week - and reaching our goals one day at a time. Cheers!

    Way to go! It is awesome how even what may seem like the small things like taking our vitamins means so much and keeps us on the right track. And doing curls in the car, that is some great dedication to yourself, your mind and body deserve it! Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

    Wow. Your vibrancy and commitment to healthy lifestyle change just flows through the page. You sound like you are full of the energy of life. Wonderful. Neat that you got to connect with relatives you've not seen in awhile. That usually means very little sleep at night as well as the long drive. emoticon
    Keep up the good work.
