Wow Am I Late Or What?

I so totally suck it isn't even funny. I am like probably two days late posting. I am sorry, I just been blowin' and goin' for the past few days. I am not what I would call on target for eating, but I did lose 1.6 pounds the first week of StS!! I attribute that to the fact I never stop moving! I did do much better on my eating than I have in the recent past. I now have the habit of cutting up two apples and eating them throughout the day at work along with some almonds and carrots. Typically when I get home, if I have had 500 calories, it is amazing. I do eat a fair amount of calories when I get home, but I follow that up with either yard work for a couple of hours or working on Lauren's room for a couple of hours or just some honey do and I haven't been sitting down until 9 here lately. If I could corral my night time eating, heck I would probably be 190 in a month!! haha. I once again have been horrible by not checking blogs either. I seriously apologize folks. I should be better at this, but it is hard for me to sit down and be behind a computer or very long after doing it at work all day.

Yesterday we got a trampoline from my boss. She is by far the best boss ever! By happenstance, we were chatting about her weekend and she mentioned she had dismantled her trampoline that weekend. I told her how ours had been condemned and the neighborhood kids were so disappointed. She offered her trampoline to me, and I gladly accepted. I went to get it last night toured her lovely home and the grounds. I love the place. Her emu was not cooperative in my efforts to pet him, but he cracked me up by chasing the sheep around,appearing to herd them! I got home and ate supper and Kathy was anxious to get me to set it up, so I went out around 7:30 and got started. It was up by 8, but I had put it together in the front yard so the dogs wouldn't bother me. Not the best plan, to say the least. It is a huge trampoline and we had to do some nifty maneuvering to get it in the back yard! It is now there and I can't wait for Lauren to come home and see it! She is going to be ecstatic, as will the neighborhood kids, and the Fredricks when they come over.

Well I better get off here and get to doing my squats. I added weight to them and it has been a challenge as of late. I do love them though now that my big ol' gut doesn't get in the way, I can do them right and they hit all the right muscles! I did do planks yesterday and I can proudly say that my ab muscles are no longer the weakest ab muscle in the world!!

  1. Squats are terrific and are part of the core exercises for me.

  2. Sounds like that new trampoline will be a kid magnet. Good for the kids and good for you. Love the fact that you are just enjoying life as it comes your way.

  3. LOl, my brother use to have Emu's and those babies can be mean as heck with those legs of theirs. They still scare. Glad you were able to post. Missed hearing from you. Gracie

  4. :) This made me remember I was thinking of getting one of those mini trampolines to work out on! I'd much rather have a huge one but alas no room :(
