Another day of not so much time to myself. Between the early dismissal yesterday and the delayed start this morning, the boys have been home more than usual. Since we are headed into a 3 day weekend, in which I am determined to spend some much needed time with both Mark and Will, I have been trying to get all my usual chores done for the weekend. I’ve been dusting, vacuuming and mopping like a mad woman!
It has finally stopped raining here, after a week straight! I haven’t been able to walk because its been so wet, so I am hoping the next two days of sunny, but cold, weather will dry up the swamp that my backyard has become. Its funny, I have never enjoyed exercising ever, but since I have started walking and inching my way toward starting C25K, not walking for a week has made me a bit stir crazy. I have subbed in a ridiculous amount of housecleaning and walking up and down my stairs for the past week just to make sure I get some calories burned. Since October, I have been really involved with the website MyFitnessPal. I have found that logging all my food and activities during the day and the super supportive environment there has been a big boost to my weight loss. I am actually averaging more weight loss a month now since joining that previously.
I am really looking forward to relaxing this weekend. Last Saturday entailed an emergency trip to the dentist and then a stop at the ER for Will, one tooth removed, a stolen iPhone, pressing felony charges, grocery shopping, a trip back to the ER to retrieve the stolen iPhone and our first visit from the Tooth Fairy. I am exhausted just thinking about last weekend. I am really looking forward to Mark and I spending some time together catching up on this week’s DVR including Top Chef and Project Runway and he is looking forward to us getting some “geek time” together via World of Warcraft. I am hoping by Monday it will be nice enough out to take Will to the playground and get in a nice long walk for myself. I also want to get the finishing touches done with my blog, which I am really excited about!
