I hate Fridays....

So weigh-in was not what I was expecting or hoping for. Down 0.6 of a lb. Well yippee doo. I was so good this cheating. 3 workouts, an hour each. that's 1500 calories alone. I guess a loss is a drives me crazy that hubby can lose 6 lbs and I lose .6. What's with that? Grrrrrrrr...

OK...whining done. Family dance at my kids school tonight. That should be fun...

I think next week I'm going to try cutting a few least with supper. During the day I don't really eat many so it's just supper I will have to work on. We are also going to pick up an elliptical next week...I'm looking forward to that. So I guess we'll wait and see what next week brings:)

I'm a little sad that all the shows are coming to an end for the season. What am I supposed to watch while I'm working out?

I am pissed that Numb3rs has been cancelled...also Miami Medical. I was really liking that!!! on to another week. everyone have a great weekend...

Make it a good one:)

Too Funny...

Out of all the blogs I follow, which are quite a few. There are a few of us that haven't wrote all week. I was feeling a little guilty but the week just got away from me as usual. So knowing that it happens to best of you, makes me feel

I was down on my Friday weigh put me .2 pounds under where I was a month ago and I was doing the happy dance. Which I have been told I shouldn't do because it reminds everyone of the peepee dance but TOO BAD!!

So I am going to force myself to get on that bike 3 times a week.That's what I did last week and I think maybe it kicked something into gear. My knees weren't too bad after so I think I'm going to try and keep it up. At least until June 1 or so, then we are finally buying an elliptical...YAY.

It has been a slow week but lots of work out side. We had trees to cut down...they were dead when we moved in last year. 3 birch trees and a no name tree in the front...your guess is a good as mine. We went a bought a flowering crabby tree. It's so pretty and now were digging up an area on the front for flowers and stuff.

We also got our new/old tent trailer that we bought from friends and set that up in the back yard. So much better then our tent and I am now looking forward to camping a lot this year.

I guess that's all for now...
Make it a good one:)

What a week!!!

Well it's been a week...O.K and a few days. My bad!!! My daughter hurt her foot playing soccer so she's been home. One more to wait on hand and foot...

Had to make up soccer games. 6 of them plus the 5 we normally play. Also 2 camp meetings...because you know it would be so hard to have them at the same time. Nobody ever does anything the easy way.

I didn't weigh in this week. I had to drive the kids both mornings...usually Hubby drives them, but he was in Saskatchewan and had to be back at work by 7:30am Tuesday. So I was rushing to get them to school and Dilyn to playschool.

Nobody's been sleeping's been a little hot. Except my son who never sleeps in has been sleeping in. Figure that out. He has been a little off this week as well. I think it's the heat. We always have to up his meds at the beginning of summer and the end of summer. I have no idea why but we did that yesterday. Will keep them up till Friday, then all should be back to normal. Well as normal as it can be.

Anyway...weigh in can wait till next week. It probably wasn't good anyway...I didn't have anytime to work out. No time to time for anything.

I did finally get to start 'House Rules' by Jodi Picoult. I've wanted to read it since it came out just never could afford it. But I got it for Mother's day form my Mother-in-law. I am loving it so far.

OK...I'm done rambling for today...see you all tomorrow...

Make it a good one:)

Good Weekend...

It went so fast, but don't they always. Hubby took Monday off and it's thrown my whole schedule into turmoil.

I fell behind on all my chores,and I never eat properly when he's home. But on the other hand I did get my grocery shopping done. That is a huge bonus...since the snow melted and the fields have dried up so soccer is back in full swing.

I haven't been on the bike since Friday...weekends are hard but I even missed Monday. I always try for Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Two days in a row doesn't work for my knees.
I can't even walk if I do that. So I figure with all the walking I did yesterday...I'm calling it even.

Soccer was good yesterday...we won:) DD Devyn didn't score but did run her butt off. 4 more games, 2 practices, Maggie to the vet and the Daughtry concert on Thursday. So excited about the concert...can't wait:)

So a good weekend and a pretty good Monday...Tuesday has been a little crazy...

One of the kids locked the cat in the closet(by accident she likes to sleep in there), which they know not to do. Anyway...she peed on the bag of shoes that were in there. So know I'm washing the shoes and trying to run out the door to get DD Dilyn to preschool on time...

Got there and went looking for my sweater I lost last week...but it's gone, gone, gone....:(
Guess I'll have to buy a new

So have a great day...make it a good one:)

Onward and Upward...

Downward would have been better this week but I gained .6. Not worth crying over...I blame those damn homemade chocolate chip cookies I had to make for the Mother's Day Tea at Dilyn's playschool yesterday. I tried to only eat 2 but the 2 turned into 4...they just kept calling me...evil little things.

On the good's FRIDAY...yay. I usually don't really like Friday's, but today's good. I got all the laundry finished yesterday so today I just need to vacuum and wash the floors. I might just make that my workout for today...believe me I'm sweating by the time I'm done washing almost 1400 sq. ft. of it:)

Tonight we are going to the premier of ' Ironman 2' really looking forward to that. I hate the line ups but were going with friends so they can stand and I can, or go to the book store which is just down the elevator;)

Going to have to work harder next week...there will be no cookies so it should be alright. It's funny because we have a bag of cookies in the cupboard and I won't touch them...I guess that's a good

If I don't check in this weekend I want to wish all the mother's

A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY...I hope you all a wonderful day and don't have to do

So...I got a few emails yesterday informing me that they can't post comments to my blog? I've tried a few things to fix it and I'm going to hope they worked. I guess we'll find out later today. I think it happened when I changed my template. I just don't know why. So hopefully that is fixed.
Please mail me if you have problems. Might just have to put old template back...:( is May, I have to keep checking. We had beautiful +15 C weather for a month. We had our summer clothes out and flip flops on. Soccer season starts with rain every year except this one. It dumped about 6 inches of snow on us yesterday. It's AWFUL...

I had to go and pull all the winter coats and boots out...and all the sandals and shoes that were on the shoe rack just outside the back door were piled with snow.

My 4 yr old DD Dilyn had pre-school and it was snowing and blowing(winds were hitting 70 km/hr). It was slushy and every time a vehicle would hit a slush spot it would cover the windshield and I'd be scrambling to turn up the wipers. Well by the time I got home I was so stressed.

It is now sitting at -2C. At least the snow has stopped falling. All soccer has been cancelled for the week. Makes this week a little calmer. I just hate that the kids are missing it. They usually don't extend seasons if there are games missed due to rain. I wonder if they would due to snow...LOL

Anyway...eating went well yesterday except for the pretzels. I Always count them out so I only eat the specified serving but Dilyn kept bring me more and I don't think I was keeping very good track of them...I guess we'll see on Friday...

I have to say that I have found so many wonderful blogs out there...I love people who can keep it, eating and weight loss are hard to deal with all at the same keeping it honest can be hard. Kudos to all of you and keep it up...

Make it a good one:)

I love Mondays...

Who knew... Mondays are my quietest day of the week. I have to vacuum and do ONE load of laundry. Yes I said one load of laundry. I have finally gotten the hang of the one load a day thing...except on Wednesday when I need to wash the bedding...I HATE Wednesdays.

I had a pretty good weekend except when the damn dog decided to pee on the bed....Grrrrrrrr

We only had 1 practice Saturday and 1 game Sunday. My poor DD, they don't even have a full team so there was only one sub. It was cold and rained for about 30 minutes. She played the whole game. 90 minutes on defence with the ball in their end for ohhhh 85 minutes of the game. It wasn't pretty I must say....:( She did run her little heart out.

My son was camping at Fort Edmonton Park all weekend with the Scouts so that made everything a little easier...and quieter:)

I ate under calories all meals except one...lasagne....I did have 1.5 pieces at 340+170 = way too much for supper. I might have been alright if I would have skipped

Anyway the rest was good and hopefully that didn't add too much to the nasty scale on Friday...

Oh just so u know...I hate Fridays...:P

Make it a good one:)
