A Sorry and This Weeks Menu Monday

Monday, November 03, 2014

Well, to say it's been a bad, good, crazy, busy couple of weeks would probably be an understatement. I came down with broncitis #2 since last being here and having just gotten over broncitis...yep...lucky me. We found out my 15 yr niece was dating an older boy.... and my brother going to talk to said boy ended up getting arrested...during this time i was planning 2 Halloween parties...a dear friend lost her 11 day old baby to SIDS...no parent should have to go through this :( he was such a precious and perfect baby and a very rough funeral to attend. My dd2 had to have an ultrasound done because grandbaby #4 had fluid on his kidneys...that has disappeared but they are still keeping an eye on it. A friend of dd1's had brain surgery...and with all this...work has been extra crazy busy...on the up side... Halloween went well...picture of cake below...the grandbabies loved the party, the dressing up and yes, the candy...lol...and i enjoyed sending them home all sugared up...cuz that's what grandma does :)

This Weeks Fitness Friday

Friday, October 10, 2014

Well for being a crazy week, I will say I think I have done pretty good on the fitness realm. Been doing 30 minutes treadmill in the morning....been doing a combo of workout 1, 2, 3 and 4...then doing strength training 10 minutes a day, taking turns with upper and lower. I have kicked up the speed most days on the treadmill from 2.0 to 2.3. And even went an extra round on Monday :) Wohoo go me.

Eating has been kinda all over the place, and though trying to stay within calories, I am not making the best choices either. I did go grocery shopping today and stocked up on fruits and veggies and healthy proteins.

So that's it for this week.

  


Crazy Week Catch Up

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Ok, not my normal Thursday blog...though don't get me wrong, I do have plenty to be thankful for...it's just been a crazy kinda week. dd2 was having chest pains on Monday night and she went to hospital. They ran all sorts of tests and found nothing. Which is good, yet frustrating at the same time. This though I truly think was heartburn/gas as she had been eating chili last couple of days. Then on Wednesday our lil lady had tubes put in her ears. She did well... we thought she would throw a fit about being handed off to strangers but they really did a good job with her. The surgery went quick and she came out great and with no complications. My mom is sick so we are all hoping she don't share it with any of us. It's sad but I am just getting over broncitis and can't afford to get anything else at this point...and dd2 can't get it because she might give it to lil lady and lil lady can't get it as she is recovering...lol...

As for my weight loss this week...i'm on prednisone...and though i do love it...i normally gain 5 lbs when i am on it...and fully expected it this time as well...but was thankful that no, i did not lose any weight...but i didn't gain either...that is a victory in my book...lol.
