Good evening girlies! Back from Open House, girls are in bed and it's time to catch up!
~ woo hoo! Size 12's that's awesome!!
Bummer about the movie, odd that the theater didn't open at it's normal time...I used to work at a theater and opening shift started at the same time no matter what time the first show started. Hee hee, that was a fun job!
Good times, good times.
~ hey, you take it nice and slow with that knee--besides, I started thinking about it, and C25K isn't a race, it's a program to get you running! There's no time limit or particular pace you have to set. Remember what Robert says? You should be able to talk while running. I definitely started having a hard time talking after 90 seconds at 6.2! "*puff-puff*--I--*huff-puff*--am gunna--*puff-cough-puff*--die!!!!"
I'm glad I slowed it down some, I really want to ease myself into running again. I gotta say, I'm surprised that my bum knee hasn't bothered me yet (Knocking on wood feverishly right now!!!), not sure if it's from all the ST'ing or what, but I am ever so thankful!
~ woo hoo on the WT'ing! That back and booty will be toned in no time!!
Dinner sounds yummy, can I come over?
Have a great workout tonight!! Weird about craving mushrooms--I've been having cravings the past couple of days too--but not healthy ones. But, I've resisted, it's just odd that they've come out of nowhere.
~ WTG avoiding all the fair food! It's so tough when those smells smack ya in the face isn't it? But you stayed strong! Woo hoo!!! Thanks, he seems to be feeling a little better, but still only managed to eat a pb&j today and nothing else. I think he may have a low grade fever too and his stomach is still bugging him a bit. His teacher said she had 3 kids out today...sigh...and so it begins. Be prepared--public school can do a number on the kiddos come cold and flu season. However, my friend home schools her 3 and I always tease her because come Winter it seems like all of them are constantly sick and we usually only battle one or two colds.
~ WTG staying strong last night!! I'm glad you're not letting the scale bug you, sometimes daily weighing can be frustrating, but it sounds like you are tuning into your body's fluctuations.
Glad to hear you're going to try some bigger breakfasts--a piece of fruit certainly wouldn't cut it for me anymore--used to, but not now that I workout in the mornings.
~ before I had the girls I really thought about home schooling the boys. I was really into teaching them all I could and both were reading by 4yrs. Now, once I had the girls I couldn't even think straight let alone plan lessons so off to public school they went. My oldest thrives in a classroom full of kids, my younger ds, well, he had some trouble adjusting to kinder but seems to be enjoying first so far so I'm happy.
~ ooh, wait, you're having chili and cornbread for dinner? Now I don't know where to go for dinner, your house or Shasha's!
Mmm, cotton candy--why is that stuff so dang good? I just love the smell and nothing beats that first bite (before your hands get covered in sticky sugar and it becomes too messy
). Glad to hear you're drinking your water!
Hurray for the 24 hr internet! Sorry to hear about your ankle--take it easy, those things take forever to heal if you mess them up bad enough! Glad to hear you're abs are making themselves heard--that soreness is what we like to call a Badge of Honor! Wear it proudly!
~ well, it sounds like you didn't do a bit of damage having 2nds at dinner--so no harm, no foul.
And bravo for not having an Indian Taco (not sure I've ever heard of that) at the fair!! Will power is a great thing isn't it?
Good luck on Saturday--I hope you'll come back here and tell us all about it!!
~ I can only imagine how busy you must be! The two teachers I met today had all of 20 mins to go over all of their class schedules/routines/policies/etc. with us parents and had 3 different groups of parents to give the speech to. I know they must have spent forever prepping for it on top of all their other teaching responsibilities! So a big giant
to you for being a teacher!!! Glad to hear you survived C25K today--after work no less! Woo hoo! I think maybe each Sunday you, Delphi and I--and anyone else who's doing it--should come here and give each other pep talks about the upcoming week!
I have confidence that we'll make it through!!!
~ aww, sorry to hear you're having trouble losing. It could be the fiber, or the cysts or maybe you're gaining muscle and not seeing a loss. Whatever the reason, know that you will start losing again, just stay strong and as Delphi says, 'Keep fighting the good fight!'.
~ Hey hun! Wow, sounds like you've got a pretty full plate! Don't sweat being OP for now, I'm sure once everything settles down you'll be right back on track in no time. Hope your mom recovers quickly, that your kids have a safe trip to school and that you don't shed too many tears when the go.
Well girls, Open House went well. I really think the boys lucked out with their teachers this year! Especially my youngest ds. She's so sweet! She's one of those super patient teachers and she's taken courses on how to teach kids with ADD/ADHD as well as lots of other workshops and courses. She just seems to be very passionate about her job which is fantastic.
I giggled when I sat at his desk, in the upper left corner was a little post it that said "Ryan M Needs Bigger Desk and Bigger Chair"
My boy is TALL for his age and well, even the desks are too small for him.
Babysitting went well, Grandma brought sparkly beady necklaces and bracelets for the girls and when I got home Em was decked out in all of them!
My fil came over after I left and when I got home and asked hubby how it went he said, 'Fine! My dad's in trouble though.' I asked why and he said, 'Because now that we know they can handle all 4--we're going to be asking them to watch them all the time!'
Okay, well, I need to usher the boys upstairs to bed--it's past their bedtime (I'm hoping that keeping the oldest one up will help make him extra tired so no insomnia occurs) and I'm getting tired too. Hope everyone had a great day! Sleep well and I'll catch ya tomorrow!!
