Super-rambly weekend recap

Howdy Y’all!

Did you have a good weekend? I spent most of my weekend at my mom’s house helping her get ready for our family reunion this coming weekend. I’m excited that I get to be with my sisters and their families – we all only live a couple hours away from each other, but we don’t get everyone together very often. When we do get together, it’s a blast!

Man, I have got the cravings something fierce today. I will admit, I ate more junk than usual over the weekend – quantities weren’t bad, but the quality very, very bad – so it has carried over into this morning. I could really go for a donut right now, even though I know if wouldn’t hold me over for more than half an hour. Really need to do some serious detoxing of the sugar…right after I have a donut.

Ack – today is really busy at work. I really hate it when everything happens at once!

Oh – sad, sad news to report: my mp3 player went through the washing machine Friday night and is now officially dead. Why is this significant? Because I cannot work out without my tunes blaring in my ears pushing me to work harder and longer. Seriously, I feel derailed… betrayed…abandoned. I have too many other purchases coming up in the near future (food for family reunion and Sarah’s birthday later this month) so I can’t just run right out and buy a new one. Not really sure how I’m going to handle this. I may have to dig Jillian and her evil Shred out of the DVD cabinet and go with that for awhile until I can gather the funds to purchase replacement motivation, because I seriously need to get back on the workout wagon. I’ve been slacking the last couple of weeks, and I don’t want to slack off any more – I get too many benefits from working out regularly to just quit.

The weather here today is GOR-GEE-OUS!!! Seriously, you would never believe it is August – it feels more like October. That’s part of the reason I’m psyched to work out – a change in the weather always makes want to move and groove. I’m so ready for Fall. I’m ready for caramel-scented candles, ready to decorate my house in Autumn décor, ready for high school football games, ready to buy new sweaters and jeans and boots!! Really, what’s not to love about Fall???

Okay it’s taken my 3 hours to write this one little post, so I’m going to quit while I’m ahead. It’s almost lunch time, and after lunch I have lots to do, so I’m just going to go ahead and post this while I have the chance. Have a good Monday!

  1. That is very sad about your MP3 player, but as a non-music-worker-outer, I have to admit that I’m not really that sympathetic. No CD player near to where you work out? How about working on memory verses while you walk–stop it, stop laughing at me! I actually do really enjoy this…it stops my circular negative thinking.

    Did I tell you that one day when I was in the doldrums, even though I knew I shouldn’t, I left my RAZR cell phone on the kitchen sink counter, and yep, it fell into the sink, that at that time just happened to not be draining very well, and had enough water in it to drown my cell phone. Very sad. So I am a little sympathetic.

    Glad your family reunion is coming up. I know how much you enjoy that! Plus you’ll have lots of funny stories to tell us afterwards.

    1. I do have a CD player near my elliptical, but it’s just not the same as having the music INSIDE MY HEAD. I didn’t laugh at you memorizing verses! – I think that’s a great idea, but honestly I never would have thought of doing that if you hadn’t mentioned it. 😦

      My husband has dropped his phone in our goldfish pond at least twice that I can think of – he finally got a holder that clips to his belt, so no more soggy cell phones!

      Here’s your joke of the day – what kind of phone do turtles use? Shell phones!! hahahaha!! Get it?! Well, I thought it was funny!

    1. Funny how things seem to grow legs and walk away on their own, huh? My youngest never remembers leaving her shoes outside by the trampoline!

  2. Aww, sorry about the mp3 player. The shuffle’s are pretty cheap these days but they just are very fancy.

    I love Fall. That crispness in the air always gives me a mood boost.

  3. I meant they “aren’t very fancy”.

    when I worked, I was the best proof reader – all bosses always complimented me on my accuracy – blogging/comments – not so much.

    My spelling bites – too (but just blogging/comments! Ha)

    1. That’s okay Doc – I knew what you meant!! Sometimes my fingers go faster than my brain and I type things like “and” when I really meant “an” or something like that. I get a lot of use out of my backspace button!!

  4. I can’t workout without music either…the other day my iPod just died…a mere 4 minutes into my walk….

    panic set in.

    I lived, of course, but it was painful!

  5. I hear ya about the music. I’ve forgotten to charge my iPod a few times, and had to work out without it – the HORROR!!!
    It can be done, though – don’t let your lack of music derail your efforts!!!
