I ended up not having an extra snack last night out of pure exhaustion. I am beat!
Today I have to get in a whole lot of exercise, and I am going to have to plan this out in order to accomplish it. I think this morning I am going to do a video of some sort, then at lunch the hubbs is coming home and we’re going for a run together (which actually won’t kill much time, as he runs too damn fast), and then tonight I’ll ride while TBL is on and the hubbs is in class. We thought his classes were M,W this semester, but they are T, TH, which is AWESOME because he won’t miss our 10 year old’s cello concert tomorrow!
Brseay, I totally haven’t seen the dress yet, but she is supposed to send me a link to it, and when she does I am definitely going to use your idea to post it. One on the fridge, one on the back of the pantry, and one by the treadmill, to remind myself that I need to push it extra hard!!
And getupnow, the Europe trip… just the two of us!! No kiddos! I think yesterday as we were planning we cut out Greece and Germany for this visit. It’s just too much. So now I am only in charge of Ireland and London, and being that we’re Irish, I am obviously more interested in Ireland. We’re also planning on focusing on Rome, too, and attending a mass given by the Pope. Funny thing is, we were both raised Catholic, but she is now athiest, and who knows what I am… I just know I still believe, though I don’t really practice. But, because of my grandmother (her mother) it is so deeply ingrained in us that we have to do it. Crazy, huh? So, I am going to try to learn a little Italian. We got the Rosetta Stone software and I am going to start later this week. I’m scared! I have never learned a foreign language before. We didn’t need one to graduate from high school or college where I went. Well, I do know the little bit of Spanish I have picked up from Dora.
Okay, enough about that. I need to start this day!!

Just got done with 64 minutes of exercise. I did TBL cardio, started a stupid dance dvd, and then did the bike for 30 minutes. I have figured out how to get a workout on the bike. OMG, the aerobic setting is hard core, especially after all the lunges from this morning, and last night! That was a LONG 30 minutes! Now I’m waiting for the hubby to get home for our run and then it’s lunch time. I’m hungry!!
And we’re back. And hubby can’t go to lunch because he is too busy. And he finally tells me that over an hour after he is supposed to be here. He is lucky I already worked out, or I would be MAD!
Went for a walk and to get the boys, and I got some crummy news… Nate’s teacher is staying on extended leave to deal with family issues. Her aunt is not doing well, and her aunt practically raised her. UGH. I feel bad for her, and I also feel bad for my son. He is doing so good in school, and I hate all of this change. The principal assures me the new teacher is good. I hope so. In other, less depressing news, my boys both got the Congressional Award for the trimester (one kid per grade per trimester). My oldest got it last year, too, so this is his second. I am so excited, but at the same time, nervous. The ceremony is the day after my surgery. I HOPE I feel well enough to go. Let’s be realistic; I am going either way. Maybe no one will notice how loopy I am
Okay, I’ll stop boring you all with my BS. I am done for tonight. I know I was going to do the bike again, but I am worn out and skipping it, not to mention these fabulous cramps that come and go except tonight have decided to stay. Grrrrrrrr And I deserve it because I took the men to McD’s to celebrate and get Monster v Alien toys and I totally resisted. As in NO fries crossed these lips. I’m off to take a bath and watch the tube.
