05 August 2014

I actually managed to get my lazy butt out of bed this morning at 5 and go for a run!! Woot woot!! I tried to talk myself into sleeping in, but I knew it was going to be 90's this afternoon and I wouldn't do it, so I went for my run and I'm so glad I did. It was peaceful, quiet, cool, and just a great run. I didn't set any records with my time or anything, but I still feel good about it.

My kids are leaving this morning for their trip with Grandma and it was hard to tell them good-bye. They are so excited. My son gave me like a hundred hugs this morning, so that made me feel good. They'll be back on Sunday, so now I need to do those things that I have a hard time doing while they're around in the evening, like cleaning and gardening. :)

My hubby works early tonight, so I'll only see him for about an hour before he goes to work and he'll be getting ready most of that time. Then it will just be me and the dogs. What to do, what to do? I'm thinking I'll do some gardening, maybe catch up on a couple of shows on the DVR, play with the dogs in the back yard. Hmmmmm.... What do people do when they don't have kids to keep them entertained? :)

Have a great Tuesday!!

Good morning! I hope everyone's Monday is off to a good start so far.

I had a pretty good weekend, not much going on for once. I took the kids shopping for some new school clothes and they did okay. My daughter's biggest issue is finding pants, she's an odd size just like I was at her age, so it's hard to find what fits right.

I made my relish over the weekend too, finally. And I was able to make dinner last night with green beans, corn, and potatoes from my garden. It made it taste better just knowing that I raised all those things. I'm sad that my zucchini is not healthy though, so no zucchini this year, and my cucumbers are not doing well now either, I think they may be diseased now or something. Hopefully my squash will make it and my tomatoes will turn red so I can call those successes too.

I didn't get a workout in on Saturday because we were busy shopping, then I did laundry and made my relish. But, Sunday I did a strength workout and that was good. I definitely needed it because today my muscles are feeling it. Tonight I'm going to do some yoga because tomorrow I'm starting a running program through the Nike+ app. Hopefully having a schedule will help me stick with it. It's going to be hot though this week, and possibly rainy, so we'll see if I can get out of bed in the a.m. to get my runs in. Wish me luck!! I have a hard time getting out of bed.

My kids leave tomorrow morning for Yellowstone with my mom. So, on one hand I'm like "Yay, some quiet time", but on the other hand I'm like, "I'm going to miss those little buggers." I know they're going to have fun and the week will fly by because I'll be working anyway, but I'll miss my hugs at bedtime and just the silliness in the house. But, my hubby and I are going to take a day vacation to the casinos a few hours away and stay the night, so that will be nice. We don't get a lot of chances to go do something like that, just the 2 of us, so it will be fun. And hopefully we'll win some money too. :)

Well I've rambled off enough for Monday. Have a great week!!

Dentist appointment this morning before work, so I'm working later today. Ugh. I forgot about that, and I want to get my relish started tonight, so hopefully I'll have time to get at least a short workout in and maybe my son will play some Kinect with me tonight too while the relish is in the canner. I did get a 2.5 mile run last night with the hubby and got some potatoes dug up, so I at least burned a few calories and didn't really do a whole lot of sitting on the couch.

My eating still needs some work. After everyone left from the weekend, we realized they all left food. So we have a gallon bucket of ice cream in the freezer, and my daughter made a small batch of chocolate chip cookies, darn it!! Luckily the rest of the day I haven't been doing too bad, but those snacks in the evenings aren't good. If I can only stick to a serving size of ice cream it's not so bad, and luckily the cookies are about gone and I haven't eaten too many. Eating right is definitely the hardest part of this for me. I can tell myself all day that it's not worth it to eat ice cream, or if I have a piece of fruit it will taste just as good, but I just can't seem to find the will power to stop myself from digging in to that ice cream. Well I guess that's something to work on.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!

Happy Hump Day!! I hope it's going well so far.

I didn't get my run in last night, but I did a workout. I got home later than expected and we had the roofing guys finishing our roof and putting gutters on, so I had to stay home in case they needed anything because my hubby had to work. My son and I also did the Kinect for about 30 mins. and played a game with lots of jumping, so that was fun and probably at least helped me burn a few more calories. Tonight though I'm going to try again for my run.

I didn't get out to my garden yesterday either because of the roofing guys. My dogs would have gone nuts if I was out there and they weren't with the roofers running around the back yard, so I just opted to stay in. Tonight hopefully I can get to my potatoes and I think I have a couple of peppers ready to be picked. I love my garden! So much yummy food.

Well, that's all I've got for today. Have a good one!
