08 August 2014

Yesterday I participated in an active shooter drill at an old run down mall. It was pretty interesting. I was chosen to be a woman whose husband/BF/or whoever is shot next to her and she runs and screams, and we were the first people the officer encounters. So all that screaming made my throat sore today, but it was fun. And as a bonus I got to do it during work, so I was paid, and I got a little more activity in than I normally would at work.

Today I've got a 3 mile run ahead of me after work, so I'm hoping the rain that's in the forecast either holds off until I'm done, or is just a sprinkle. I did get a workout in last night, and I really want to stick with my coaching program on the Nike app. Tomorrow is supposed to be a 4 mile run, with some walking, and I'm going to try to get that done in the a.m. because my hubby and I leave for our trip out of town about noon.

Speaking of our trip. My hubby sold his little fishing boat yesterday, so now we have to haul our trailer with us on the 3 hour trip because he wants to buy a new boat. Ugh. So, now I figured out the real reason he wanted to go on this trip. I don't want to deal with getting the stupid little boat mostly because the kids will be getting back Sunday and I want to be there when they get back, not have them wait on us for a few hours because of the boat. My hubby isn't bothered by that, because he's got his one track mind going. He gets obsessed with things and can't focus on anything except for that obsession until he's got it. It drives me nuts! I need to find something really obnoxious that I enjoy and make him do it with me, and somehow sucker him into it with the guise of a vacation. See how he likes it. :) Just kidding, I'll deal with it, but it is annoying.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

Yesterday I felt like I was doing pretty good until the end of the day, then I started getting a horrible headache. This morning I can still feel it hanging on, but it's not as bad. I'm hoping that if I take some migraine meds it will stay just a little headache and not turn into a full blown migraine, which is what it was feeling like last night. I was feeling nauseated and just crumby all night so I didn't get much accomplished other than watching the movie "The Life of Pi", which I would reccomend to anyone who hasn't seen it.

So, today will be a struggle if my headache doesn't go away and my stomach is not feeling well either. I made myself a PB&J today for lunch because that's the only thing that sounded good. I think my stomach is the scar tissue pain acting up because that's where the pain is. I'm hoping by the end of the day I feel marvelous and ready to work out because I'm supposed to do a DVD today. We'll see what happens, I'm just going to take it as it comes.

Well, I'm off to take some meds and hopefully feel better! Have a great Wednesday!!

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!!

04 August 2014

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!!

31 July 2014

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!!
