I missed sparking and logging - I'm officially addicted to this website
Hello, I'm Anne and I'm a SparkPeople addict.
There, I feel better.
So I went away this weekend to Boston to see my lovely younger sister - and we had a great weekend with everyone. We were 6 in total, and after her ceremony, we chilled out and hung out, napped, and then out to dinner to a very fancy restaurant. (I didn't log on for one whole day - I could have, but I didn't. I wanted to test my will power and judgement - and I think I passed with flying colors!) We had raw fish and ceviche, and cooked fish with fancy veggies with bits of lobster (try logging that stuff - I tried and am probably way off), a marguarita with black tea, mango and tahitian chile pepper that tasted like a grape lollipop, and a lemon tart.
A cookie and a drink here and there - not too much water drunk in the car for travling purposes - that's where I was bad. Oh, and I can't forget the corned beef dinner with the inlaws when I got home. That's where I fell off the wagon, but I could have been WAY worse. I got full so fast!
It was fun going away and seeing my sister - I'm so proud of her! She's going to do just fine in her profession. And I got to know her boyfriend, who is such a sweetheart, even better. Mind you, they've been together since my oldest was a baby, and the poor guy has seen me pregnant, nursing, fat, not-so-fat, pregnant, nursing, fat...etc. etc... The most fun was teasing him when I was nursing. Every single time, he'd walk in on me in full nurse mode and he'd get so embarrassed! It started to become a great joke.
Walking around the Beacon Hill district was great fun - I'm a wrought iron, cobble stone, old architecture junkie. Quaint little shops and small streets are idylic for a good mental story of the past. I think I had another life back when corsets and carriages were the norm. That's probably why my waist doesn't want to be seen! It was always cinched in and is still waiting for it's corset!
So now I'm back and on the wagon again. Next trip - camping! And that is another challenge altogether...

Things always seem brighter in the morning, with the start of a new day.
Things are in perspective and this too shall pass.
SP is such an asset to me that it isn't funny! I hope this website is always free! or else I would be lost!
So here is to an new day!

It was good to get back on the treadmill. I got a whole hour in this afternoon and burned 350 cals.
The finger is feeling much much better - i can't wait to actually wash the thing...Gross, huh? 48 hours is over - hooray!
Some other stuff went on today, which I'd love to write about, but right now, I'm keeping it close to home...so whoever reads this, say a prayer for my goodhealth and well being.

Yup, stupid me was so excited to go out and cut down all the dead asters and rose bushes, I did something really stupid - my pinky finger got in the way of my garden shears and before I knew it, I clamped down on my left pinky, right above the nail - went through half-way down. I was lucky that the shears were old and dull, because if it was a new sharp pair, the tip would be gone.
Oldest son ran and got hubby, who was sucking up leaves at the other end of the yard, and then we called the family to come and watch the kids as we went to the hospital. 2 deep stitches and 2 hours later I was home. Doctor's orders: no work, no gym, no heavy lifting, no getting it wet for 48 hours.
Yay (grimacing here) :P
Well - I'm thankful that I still have my pinky tip and that the ER was in a lull, that my hubby, kids and back-up family were so good, that it was my left hand and not my right, and that I could say to the nurse that I was 175 and not 187. Small things people, but important enough to me.
Now I have a get out of workout free card and it pisses me off. Oh well...this too shall pass.
