Update Time

I have been terribly remiss in my blogging. Two weeks in a row. Life tends to be a little crazier in the summer. Anyone who deals with all 4 seasons will understand. You don't really want to be indoors too much.

Anyway, enough of my excuses. On to updating.

I made the mistaker of weighing myself this weekend. And then promptly dismissed it. I haven't worked out much the past couple of weeks ... if that husvband of mine would keep his hands to himself, I might get more done, get more sleep .... LOL. ... more excuses.

Sunday I met one of my girlfriends for a powerwalk. Turned into an hour walk ... In the rain for about half of it .... No umbrella. It was good actually .... Kept us from overheating. Barry and I spent about 4 or 5 hours shovelling clay into wheelbarrels and schlepping them down the street about 15 houses. THAT was a great workout. The past 2 weekends have kinda made up a bit for lack of workouts during the week.

But I got up yesterday and went for the walk, got up this morning at 415 ... was rather resentful but did it anyway. ... Sometimes the prospect of getting my ass out of bed so early, especially when hubby is off, is too much ... but I stuck with my plan.

When we were out walking I realized that I do need to be more diligent with my lower body workouts ... Stronger legs will prevent me from getting too winded. My girlfriend was a runner but can't run right now. So she had a decent workout and I had a great workout. Even took the time to do my ab exercises. As long as the weather cooperates I'm going to start going for sunday morning powerwalks. I might even get the hubby to join me ..... LOL

Thankfully it rained on Sunday ... I might get a little weeding done this week, although I have no idea when. I'm working barry out tonight and tomorrow because I'm out wed night and he's out thursday so maybe then unless I end up with plans. We'll see how it goes.

And it turns out I can't count. This past saturday was 4 weeks to the wedding. I can get into that dress. I just have to be diligent.

My biggest struggle is nutrition. Always has been. But I can do this. I will do this.


  1. YES YOU WILL MY FRIEND!!! You are going to look so beautiful in your dress!!! HHL

  2. You kids have so much on your plate that I'm surprised you're still working out and thinking about nutrition! I have faith you... you WILL fit into that dress, you hear me young lady?!?!?!
