24 July 2014

Late journal for me today, but better late than never. I am starting my weekend after work today, so woo hoo for that, but it will be a busy few days. Hopefully I can get a workout in after work today. Last night I got about 3 miles in, and tonight will hopefully be a DVD.

I am canning my cinnamon pickles tonight, finally! It's been a long process, so I really hope they turn out tasty. I grew up eating them and they taste like candy, but my hubby and kids are already turning their noses up at them, hopefully they like them when they taste them. If they're good I'll be giving some jars away. Tonight I may try to do some dill pickles also since they don't take as long to make and I need to get rid of all those cucumbers!

Tomorrow the influx of people start coming to our house. My hubby wants to go out to dinner with everyone so there's less mess and then everyone is paying for their own food. It's going to be hard though because there will be about 20 of us eating, so we'll see if we can find a place big enough. I told him to call and try for reservations at a couple of places today, but I'm sure he didn't, they are not planners, so I'm sure things will change at dinnertime tomorrow. I'm ready for my little nieces to get here though, they are so precious! It will be nice to kick back and just play this weekend. :)

I probably won't be back on here until at least Monday, so I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

*EDIT: Well I just got a call from my hubby that we are shopping for food and stuff today instead of tomorrow, so no workout for me other than what I get in from shopping. Darn it! I guess that means I'll have time to do a good one tomorrow.*

21 July 2014

Wow did that weekend fly by or what?! I was super busy all weekend, which was good because it meant on my feet a lot, but I was also in a car yesterday for a lot of it and ended up eating a lot of junk, so that wasn't good. My stomach is telling me today that it's not happy that I ate so much junk. If only I could bottle this feeling for those times I'm even thinking about eating junk, just so I could remember why I need to stay away from it, life would be easier.

Saturday was up early and off shopping with my daughter. 3 or 4 hours of shopping and 1 outfit bought. Seems like a waste of time, but that's more than my daughter usually ends up with. I didn't find any good deals for myself, so nothing for me. Then we were off to my niece's birthday party, which was fun because they made carnival games for the kids to do in the back yard. After that we went home and I picked, cleaned, and canned 6 more pints of green beans. By 9 o'clock I was beat.

Sunday we went to a bridal shower out of town and left about 9:30 and got home around 6:30. After we got home I did some dishes and laundry and was too tired to think about anything else. And of course, even though I was exhausted last night, I couldn't get to sleep, so now I'm tired today too. Thank goodness I took this Friday off!

It's going to be a busy week getting ready for my hubby's family to come here this weekend. I'm hoping to get a workout in after work every day, then cross a chore off the to-do list. Friday will be my shopping day since I'm not working, that way when people get here I'll have the shopping done. We're going to have around 20 extra people in our house, so it's going to be busy. I hope that it's all fun and no drama!

I suppose I've rambled on enough for today. Have a great Monday!!

What??? How did I lose a pound? I even zeroed out my scale and reweighed because I thought it was wrong, and I feel horribly bloated today. I'll take it, but I have a feeling all the junk that I had been eating the last couple of weeks will catch up to me eventually. The human body is confusing! :)

I worked out last night, ate okay, but not much else new. I'm going to try to get a good workout in this evening and hopefully get out to the garden for a bit. Tomorrow I'm going to take my daughter for some back to school shopping, so we'll see how that goes. We're both bargain hunters, so hopefully we won't break the bank. :) There will be an auction at a house across the street and there is no room to park on our street so that could be interesting. I'm hoping my daughter and I can get out before everyone shows up. I'll probably take her out for a quick breakfast either before or during our shopping trip just so we can get out early.

I'm sleepy today, so hopefully I can stay busy and make it through work with energy left over to do a workout when I get home. I'm just happy it's Friday!!! Have a great day and a great weekend!

17 July 2014

I'm off to a better start today. I woke up on time, made my breakfast, had my lunch ready to go, and got to work on time and I know I work my normal schedule today. Someone brought donuts in again this morning too, but I didn't take one and I don't want one. :)

After work yesterday I went for my run and got almost 3 miles in and felt so much better just getting that done. There's nothing like putting some miles behind me to make me feel like I've accomplished something. Tonight I won't go for a run, but I'll make sure to get a workout in. My legs are sore from my workouts this week, that means I've been slacking the last couple of weeks, so I need to build back up again. :)

Yesterday my hubby wanted to make S'mores because he built a new fire pit for us, so I ate crap all day and then had S'mores, but only had 1. I'm going to try to do better today, like I said I've started off better than yesterday, so I just need to keep it that way.

Have a great Thursday!
