Shiny New Post

Hello Friends!  I fully intended to post more over the long weekend but between all the movie-watching and naps, I just couldn’t find the time, and did you really want to hear about how many Butterfinger Jingles I ate anyway? I didn’t think so. So, here we are at the beginning of a shiny new year. To resolve or not…

The biggest workout loser

Okay, guys, here’s the deal. I am a loser when it comes to the workout. I just plain suck at it. These last couple of days, or nights I should say, have been rough. Sunday night I got very little sleep because the little one had a tummy ache all night, thus I did not get up and do my…

Holy Crack o’ Dawn Batman!!

Holy cow guys.  I did it. I got up at 5 AM this morning and did 30 minutes on the treadmill before work.  Yeah, I can’t believe it either. The working out in the afternoon thing just isn’t working out this week, so I decided that since I get up at 5:30 anyway, I can just as well get up…

I cant think of a title for this post.

I love coffee. I mean I really really love coffee. It is comforting and warm and when I don’t have it I miss it. Is it weird that I feel the same way about my husband? Is it weird that I thought of my love for coffee before my husband? Hmmm.  Although I love coffee, I just can’t wrap my love…

Ramble time!

Okay, well I didn’t get on the treadmill yesterday after work because I was put on taxi duty shuttling my son to baseball practice, but after I dropped him off, I went to the Wal-Marts* and walked around there for an hour and fifteen minutes pushing a cart with 75 pounds of children in it going from one end of…

Whatever it takes

Okay, the exercise thing…here’s the thing: I have been fighting this voice lately that tells me that since I can’t get out of bed early enough in the morning to work out, I must not really be very committed to losing weight. This voice keeps telling me that I am a wuss for not sucking it up and making time…

Weekend Recap

All in all it was a pretty good weekend. I stayed on plan all weekend, well except for that little brownie detour, but I still had plenty of points for it, so I did pretty well food-wise. Saturday morning I got a great run/walk in. I walked for 10 minutes and then I ran for ten minutes, walked for ten…

Go Me!

Completed my first week of treadmill training and have moved on to week #2. WOOHOO!!   I didn’t get on the TM on Sunday because I figured the vigorous house cleaning I did that day would count as triple-time on the treadmill.  I mean, I was actually sweating – bathtubs don’t scrub themselves you know, especially after they have been occupied…

Tug of War

I did my 15 minutes last night, but boy, I had to fight for them.  A minute and half into my walk, Offspring #3 needed a diaper change (sorry, it’s gross I know) – and it couldn’t be put off until later.  Six minutes into walk, #2 needed to tell me something, so I jump off (not literally) the tread and…
