Ten Things Thursday

1.  Rough night....little one has an ear up several times with her.  After the last time, I couldn't fall back asleep and eventually got up for the day at 4:20am.

2.  What would you do if you were awake at 4:20 am, still on summer break and don't have to get up???  Read a book?  Clean something?  I went to the gym and did 85 mins. of cardio BEFORE I had my Pilates Reformer class @ 7:15am.

3.  Does anyone else get tight when it's hot?  (Or you are in the middle of your cycle?  Or the moon is in the third phase?  Or it's a day of the week that ends in the letter "y?")  silly question!

4.  Let me remind you....I have 1.5cc in a 10 cc band.  I have been stuck the last two days on the weirdest things.  How is it possible though....there isn't anything in my band!!!!!

Today it happened again....on cornbread mind you.  Now...I know....bread is in the word "corn bread" and I avoid bread BUT cornbread is the consistency of cake.  I don't avoid cake.  I don't get stuck on cake.  Anyhoo, I threw up four times over the course of 3 hours b/c the cornbread was just sitting there.  Please refer back to #3 if you have insight.

5.  Spent 11 hours  working in my classroom the last two days.  School starts for me on the 6th.  Still have things to do to get ready!!

6.  Today we got a patio.  Yes, a patio.

We have been renovating the backyard and the crew came yesterday to prep for paving stones.  Today they laid the whole patio and it looks great!!!!  I have waited 12 years for a new patio and yard so I am pretty excited.  Pix to follow.

7.  Bought the cutest cropped / cuffed jeans at Kohl's for $9 and they were size 6!!!  Yes people....a 6!  This is the second size 6 I have bought.  My goal is to be consistently a size 8 and I have been since June, but getting a 6 in there once in awhile is good for the ego.

8.  Today is "neighbor night."  Yep.  A get together with neighbors.  During the school year we do "neighbor night" on Sundays.  We have dinner and watch "Survivor" and the "Amazing Race."  We have done this for 12 years!!!  The tradition started the summer that Survivor premiered and we had such a good time hanging out, it stuck.  Since our shows are in hiatus over the summer, we get together and swim instead.  (Survivor starts at the end of September and we will be back to Sundays.)

9.  It's hot.  I wish we had air conditioning.

10.  I have a "date" this weekend with my son (aka Monkey #1).  We are going to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner and then we are going to watch the first Harry Potter movie together per his request.  We have read the first 4 books in the series and he thinks he is ready to try the first movie.  (yes, he is a scaredy cat...doesn't like anything dark or scary in movies.  I am exactly the same.  I read all kinds of scary books, serial killers, true crime, etc. BUT can't watch any of it on DVD.  Weird huh.)

Have a good day!

Weigh In Wednesday

I normally DO NOT post my weigh-ins on my blog.

I do weigh myself everyday though.  (Yes, call me all the names you can think of...scale whore, etc.)

I think that since I am doing maintenance (kinda sorta)  I could use all the support I can get from you wonderful people!

Highest weight:  205
Weight on day of surgery:  180
Goal weight:  140-142
Last week: ??? I don't know...I think 143
Weight today:  144

Gotta track my food a little more carefully and get near that 142 again.

My "Go*dwill" Hunt!

Hello to all of you!

Today I headed out to G*odwill in search of a jacket.  Today was the LAST DAY of my 25% off coupon before it expired.  (Forgive the no make-up's hot!)  Here's what I got:

a blouse for work

a jacket...horrible shot of me in it but my 8 year old was in charge of the camera so you get what you get

Anne Klein shoes....I know....I know...pointy toes are a bit dated BUT I LOVE THEM and can never find pointy shoes in the stores.  I am leading a one-woman campaign to bring back the pointy toed shoes!

a pink tank top

  All for $22.46....Yipee!

10 things THURSDAY

It's Thursday already?????  Where did the week go?

I have had so much going on that I haven't read,commented, or posted this week.  I am out of town now & hope to have some downtime to catch up with what has been going on.

1.  Out of town for the next few days for my SIL wedding

2.  Brought my workout wear & am going to get in a workout fri, sat, & Sunday.

3.  Today is my 15th wedding anniversary!  I am the same size (not weight) that I was at 26 after 8 months on phen-fen...the wonder diet pill of the 90s.

4.  I tried Pilates on the reformer last night for the first time. Gotta love Plum District for the deal.  I hav3 10 more sessions.

5.  I am not giving up...let me repeat....NOT up on my goal of another five pound loss.

6.  I keep bouncing back and forth on my weight....really my body thinks I am in maintenance.  I dont get it because I am journalling my food.

7.  My ass is seriously getting tight!  Yes, I did just give myself a compliment!  I have been working out soooooooooo hard with the weights and I can tell it is working..I feel strong.

8.  I get to see my BIL and family from the east coast tomorrow and I am soooooo excited.  They are here for the same wedding.

9.  Can't wait to get my groove on at the reception with my hubby....apparently that will be our anniversary celebration this year.

10.  I still have 1.5 cc in my band & it's still scary but I am trying to deal with it. Eating at cup of foodor more is still worrisome for me but it hasn't lead to a binge yet.  I have had to resort to gum chewing again to help with the head hunger.

Hope all is well in your world.
