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!
