shoo! that DOES sound like the day from hell! at least it's over and today is a new day! and DH is coming home which has got to be a good thingOH the day from hell is over!!!!!! Today was field day and for some reason the day took forever to get here and we had so many obstacles get in our way. Freezer pops wouldn't freeze, large walk in freezer died for the 4th time this year, principal "forgot" the water and gatorade at her house, it was misting all morning, I had to run out to Walmart and get everything we needed which meant I lost my parking space (there was not a single one left so I had to park in the lower field), the head cook got into a fight with the dad grilling, then I came home to the air conditioner leaking and now my carpet is soaked and smells musty! I might have to rip it up, which probably isn't a terrible thing but I hope it didn't ruin the hard woods underneath. I'm going to pull it up a little tomorrow and check.
Then I had to get DS9, take him to mom's, then go to the high school to watch DS10 run in the championship. It was bad!!! Our kids are literally 1/2 the size of all the other kids. A few of our fastest runners got medals for 3rd place but wow, we were grossly unprepared!!!
OMG I'm so glad today is over!!!
But on the up side I didn't eat much, did very little snacking and got in 10,636 steps!!!
Tomorrow is Friday! DH is coming home and is aiming for being home for 2 weeks!! And we have 3 weeks of school left!!! Come on summer!!!!
chips and salsa are the devil's food! i mean, why else would they have been invented but to have me sit and stuff my face with them?? sometimes i feel like if i go on a binge i can get away with some things but every time i eat a ton of chips and salsa or that cheese sauce of deliciousness i wind up with mucho pound-os on the scale the next day.After school we went to visit my godparents, and on the way home, we stopped at the Border Cafe for mexican, where I thought of you, LTS, and how successful you have been this challenge, but I continued to eat the chips and salsa, and said tomorrow is a new day, but after I felt awful. I ate way more than I needed, and came home and went to bed early. But, yet again, today is a new day, and I don't want to be this weight or any more this summer, so it's time to get on track.
you're right though. today is a new day. i keep waking up, getting on the scale, and saying the same thing to myself ALOT lately. i'm using being pg as an excuse to eat everything in sight and i KNOW that i'm only going to pay for it later when the weight is so much harder to take off.
enjoy the day! bike ride sounds fun! it's beautiful here too
ooo! where is camping? have fun! my grandpa lives in PA and we go camping with him to gettysburg every 4th of july weekend. he is 87 and starting to lose it a little so i'll be sure to treasure this next trip as much as possible.Good Morning All. We're camping this weekend so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to check in again. Not sure if we have internet at the campgground or not. Enjoy the extra day
have a great time!!
tracey - hang in there.
good morning everyone! it is really beautiful out today and i think it's about time i get my butt off this couch and go for a nice walk. i think i will put my running shoes on and take thomas in the jogger but i think i'll stick to a nice brisk walk. i don't want to push too hard and wind up with some more cramps.
good news (i know everyone was wondering lol!) but thomas slept last night! woot! i took him to my friend's house and relaxed for a little (ok, well, i wound up mopping the floor and folding laundry too but at least i watched tv during it!). i walked back to her house about 2 hours later and nobody was home! i called and she said she kidnapped my kid haha. nah, they were just at the little league field b/c her son had all stars practice. i made my way over to the field and thomas was happy as a clam playing with all the kids. practically ignored me. and i was totally ok with that! we hung there for a while and walked back to my friend's house where we ordered italian. and god forbid i not eat my WHOLE thing of baked ziti. oh well, it was delicious. my friend gave thomas a bath in her sink and we didn't come home til about 8:30! he watched about a minute of tv and then i put him to bed. and he slept! got up about 6:30 this morning.
well, here i am still typing and slacking on my nice walk. better sign off now!
have a great day everyone! we don't have too much planned for today. maybe a haircut for thomas? and a trip to toys r us for two bday presents (neighbor's twins just turned 3).
