Oh my goodness, it’s hot!

This is our forecast for the coming week!  The kids and I have been hanging out in the house pretty much all day.  I had to drive to town earlier to run a couple of errands, but whew…it’s almost too hot to breathe out there!

Weigh-in Today!

Posted by: sgregg In: Weekly Weigh-Ins

My scale was being stubborn this morning and wouldn’t give me the same number every time (I usually step on it a few times in a row to see if I get the same number).  So, I just went with the lowest one.  214.4!  That’s a pound down from last week.  And that’s what I [...]

So, I’ve been weighing the pros and cons of different grad schools.  I’ve decided where I want to attend, but now I’m thinking I may need to wait until I get some actual teaching experience under my belt.  I don’t want to get my Masters degree and then not be able to find a job [...]

What a long day…

It seems like so much has happened today…I’m not tired at all and it’s 11:07pm!  Anyway, I guess my energy is contributed to the amount of calories I have eaten today.  I met my mom and sister in the city today and my sister wanted to eat at Olive Garden.  So, I met them there [...]

The scale was down! Yay!

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

I’ve been weighing daily and my scale has been down the past 2 days since I started back paying attention and counting my calories.  It’s a good feeling to see it go down.  Makes me want to stay on track.  It’s good to see hard work paying off.  I’m only 3.8 lbs away from my [...]

Home Sweet Home!

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

We made it back home today.  Baby Girl had it rough Wednesday, but she was a trooper yesterday.  She didn’t go to sleep to easily Wednesday night at the hotel.  She was just out of her norm.  Yesterday was MUCH better.  She took naps in the room easily and she went to bed last night [...]

Change Of Plans

Posted by: sgregg In: Life ramblings

So…
DH got sick yesterday morning before we were supposed to get up and get ready to head to the zoo.  So, needless to say, we didn’t make it to the zoo.  However, I was able to change our reservation dates at no charge and now we are planning on going tomorrow and staying at the [...]
