Sledding and shoveling

Well I'm sure you all have the same type of photos, but I thought I would add mine. Connor has loved every bit of the snow. He goes out for a few minutes in the morning and has spent his days at Jan's out and at home at night. He will be sad when it melts. This is the first year that he has truely gotten to enjoy it without falling face first every time he tries to walk.

He love to shovel...I wonder how long that will last.

Still working hard!!

I have worked out for 2 weeks straight without a day of rest. I hope I start to feel it soon. I figure I will in about 4 more weeks. I did reach my goal this past week by eating healthier. I have chosen salads and lots of fruit. Still working on more veggies.

To a new ME!!

I am ready for this

Warm, sunny, pool weather!! I hate this cold dreary nonsense. It makes me crabby, tired, and the whole family has cabin fever. I am counting the days until we can be in the camper!!
BTW, six days of exercise. 35 min on the eliptical, 25 min on the bike.

Five days in a row

I have worked out five days in a row. I even went to the gym tonight, on a Friday!!! Can you believe it???? I have never in my life done that before. I am feeling great, and think about working out a lot. Today, after doing the elipitcal, we went to the family night at the YMCA and swam in the pool. After that, we had ice cream at Dairy Queen, bad I know. I felt so bad, I came home and did 30 min on WiiFit.

All of this motivation that I have is great, but I need to work on my eating habits. I have managed to do better for breakfast and lunch, but dinner has been tough. I think I have been burning so many calories, that I am STARVING....when that happens, I make terrible choices.

GOAL FOR NEXT WEEK: Make better eating choices.

So, my last post

stated by saying that I hoped to be going to the gym this week. Well I have been on the WiiFit for an hour on Mon, the gym Tues & Wed, tonight WiiFit for an hour. I am loving this!! I already feel better. I actually look forward to working out. I have never felt this way before. I like the Wiifit because it breaks up the monotenous workouts at the gym. Of course it is not as strenuous, but I am still moving. They even have a free step which you can step to the beat while watching TV. Pretty cool huh? I wish I would have started this long ago, but there is no better time than the present. To a new ME!!

Not much here...

Had to go back to work today. I was kind of getting used to half weeks!! Anyway, I got alot done while being off. All the decorations came down and were all put away in the attic. (Note to self: We doNOT need anymore x-mas decorations) I also organized all of my pictures from COnnor's birth on. Quite an acomplishment I must say. They are all organized in the computer and in order in the boxes. Now I can get busy scrapping. Chris bought me a scrapping toy for x-mas and I haven't gotten to use it because I was overwhelmed with pictures. Now that it's done, I should be able to get somewhere.

I am pooped. I did the WiiFit for an hour today. It really is a fun way to be active. Connor was playing right beside me, it was cute!! My leg/rear is still bothering from my either pulled hamstring or Sciatic nerve. It had gotten much better and the yoga has really help stretchmu muscles out. Hopefully, I will be at the gym this week. I was all geared up for a healthier "Me"!!
