It's taken me forever to respond. I just spent two weeks in California. It was great.

Well, I think we are getting married in June 2013. Originally we were going to wait a bit longer, but on the way home from the trip, he said he wanted to move it to the summer. I'm fine with that. The idea of planning a wedding freaks me out, though! How's it going for you?

Congrats on getting engaged! Do you have a date set for getting married?

We are getting married June 25th...I'm in total freak out mode currently ;) I am from Pennsylvania, that is where we are having the wedding.

And tomorrow I'm taking photos for a wedding of a friend of a friend. As if I didn't already have enough to do. ;)

I'm doing well. I'm in Sioux City visiting my brother and his wife who just had a baby. I see you're getting married soon. I got engaged a few months ago. How are all the plans going? Where did you live before Iowa?

I hope the weekend is off to a good start for everyone! The week has been crazy busy and the "spring" season has only just begun. I posted about all that's going on in my blog this morning - but I forgot to mention that we also have two birthdays here in the coming week my husband's on the 5th and my daughter's on the 6th then a month later my son's.

ARG! Cake is my weakness.

I'll have to be very careful!

I made it to the gym this morning. I did strength training first. Then I walked for a bit and then went to the rowing machine. Overall I exercised for about an hour. That feels great. I planned out my menus for most of the week and I really really hope I stick to them. Today I'm trying a new veggie sandwich recipe that looks really good. For breakfast I stuck to my plan and had some oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins.

I don't have to go into work today, but I do need to run to school quick to meet with a professor. Then I hope to come home and be super productive since my fiance and I aren't turning on our television this week. I just hope I don't spend all my time online instead.

Have a great day!

RPM is a lot like spinning, it is just the Les Mills class. Unfortunately, the class was full so I was not able to drop in. Hopefully I can try it out another time.

This last weekend was a rough one! A lot of time was spent with my boyfriend's family and so I ate horribly!! I ate out 4 times this weekend!!! Thankfuly, I still started my day with a healthy breakfast each day. I still jumped on the scale last night and was up 2 pounds :( I have slowly been losing weight and this stinks!! I am headed out of town again this weekend and I am hoping I dont have another bad eating weekend.

Ruby!!! 20 days without fast food is a HUGE accomplishment! I'm with you, trying to focus on that strength training.

MTGITZ: What is the RPM class? Sounds like in could be similar to spin? How did it go? So glad you were able to get out in the sun, too!

Thank you both for your support. It turned out that, due to his emotional state he was not able to leave the hospital until Thursday. Now he is home with my mother, but my mother is still waiting for her husband to arrive to help. He is currently caring for his 91 y/o mother and must wait until he can take her to his sister's house before he can join mom.

The whole situation has me pulling out my hair - I am very concerned about her. But pretty helpless to do anything at this time.

In other news. I'm down 2 pounds this week! AND we are eagerly awaiting bouncing baby goats! I have two does due do give birth within the next week or so. I've been spending a lot of my spare time sitting out in the kidding pens with my hands on their big bellies, feeling all those miraculous kicks and bumps. Also, this Friday my children should be receiving their chick order!

Last year my son had the opportunity to show his Silkie hen and won the Grand Champion at the county fair. So we are all excited to see this year's chicks. Silkies and Mille Fleur d'Uccle are to arrive this week. If you know anyone who would like to experience raising chickens, we'll have some for sale later this year emoticon

It's very good timing, really. Having some positive events heading our way at this time will be soothing for all of our souls.

Wow Painter_Lady. What a challenging time in your life. I imagine it's very hard to focus on being healthier with all that is going on.

I had class all weekend which sounds horrible, but it's not that bad. It's a class on running non-profits, so I enjoy it. Thankfully I have tomorrow off from my internship, so I can still salvage some of my weekend.

I'm feeling really good about my week as far as health goes. I have now gone 20 days without fast food, and that's really hard for me. I know it may sound lame to all the people who hate fast food, but I truly enjoy it. My goals for the week are to keep off fast food, do strength training 3 times and track the food I eat.

I am definitely sending good thoughts your way! Just think of today as a fresh start for you and your brother, the next step in the process. And remember that the healthier you are, the more you will be able to step in and care for him over the years as needed!

I am enjoying the sun today! Also going to try RPM at the Y tonight for the first time and am excited to try something new! Hope everyone is out there enjoying the day

It's been a loooong few months for my family. The week before Christmas my brother was in a car accident and was severely injured, primarily with severe brain damage.

My mom has been at our place on and off for a week at a time since the accident to try to get all his affairs in order and prepare to care for him after he is released.

Well, today is the day. He will finally be able to leave the hospital. His condition leaves him with roughly the mental ability of a 3 year old. Physically he can walk with some assistance. But he hasn't any real short or long term memory. Insurance has left us with few options and he will be living with mom because of that (while in outpatient therapy).

I really have gotten off track with my exercise and eating. Every time mom is here I use it as some excuse to eat poorly & put off exercise (primarily the longer aerobic workouts). So. She is leaving and I am worried about her and worried about my brother and worried that I'm going to have a hard time getting turned in the right direction again.

Spare a thought for our family today & for me to get back in gear!
