Feeling Better

I woke up feeling a little better, still have a runny nose but the scratchy throat is almost gone. My husband got the kids up and sent them to school for me so i could sleep in. He's such a sweetie.

I've logged my calories for the day and I've got them set just under 1500. I'm  taking another rest day, I'm a firm believer in letting the body deal with one thing at a time. And being that its in a fight with a nasty cold bug, a workout isn't going to help right now.

SO, WITH THAT SAID.... I have good news! I just purchased ChaLean Extreme and it should arrive in 4-7 days. Its basically a heavy weight lifting program that also has cardio. You can read more about it by clicking on the link.

I LOVE lifting weights, but I need something different.  I have been doing Cathe Friedrich workouts for over 5years now and its time to shake things up a bit. I've thought about joining a gym but its the long time commitment of payments that turns me off. Chalean is costing me about 4months worth of gym membership payments so i figure it would be cheaper in the long run. I will have to get one set of heavier dumbells, but thats something i intended on buying anyway( 25's). Plus all my fitness friends RAVE about it! All of them have lost inches and still do the workouts just for the fun factor.
Anyways...I will blog about it everyday so you will be seeing more about it.

ok, off to the store...Have a great afternoon :)

Hammer away

I hate coming on here and whining about my bad days but im having one....and I'm here.

I went to bed with a scratchy throat last night and woke up to a full blown cold :( .  I feel awful and my eating has been off too.  I'm really beating myself up over it, which isn't helping anything. Its 1:10 in the afternoon and I've already had 2300 calories :( . No workout today either.

sigh, really sucks

anyways....i will just try and drink a lot of water and forget about it. All I'm thinking about now is the weigh in on Sunday morning. Honestly, i just want to take a hammer to the scale and be free from it. Why not buy a smaller pair of jeans and just go buy that? After all, that's what I'm aiming for...a smaller pants size.

  If I do decide to hammer my scale to death, I will video tape it for you guys ;-)

Tuesday Update & Pics

Hello my blogging peeps! Hope your keeping warm in this dreary weather. Its been raining here for two days now..blah!  Of course i would rather be complaining about rain than that awful "S" stuff that we Georgians really see. For those dealing with the white stuff, sending warm sunshine vibes your way and a reminder that spring is just around the corner...


Today I did an AWESOME workout with Cathe, the 4DS series Low Impact Step followed by the weight segment on there that involves shoulders, calves & core. I burned 515 in 68 minutes. woot,woot.  My calories today: 1709.  I can't wait until Sunday's weigh in...seriously, im so excited :-)

I wanted to share a pic of my lunch. Its leftover chicken breast sauteed with red onion, bell pepper and spinach. I rolled it in a low carb wrap and tossed some hot taco sauce on top. Talk about GOOD. 


Below is a pic of my kids playing with there cars. I was in the living room and I noticed that I didn't hear them...there always up to something when its quiet,lol. This is was what I found.
And lastly, a pic of my boys, Rocky (black chihuahua) and Sammy ( chihuahua/pug). They were napping...lazy things!!


Have a great day!

Cake Decorator... I Think Not!

I woke up this morning and decided to fill out more job applications. So, after getting the kids off to school and drinking my coffee, I started surfing the net. I filled out one job app then decided to check the status of a few apps I filled out at the local hospital here. I wasn't happy with those results. Status: 'were currently seeking other candidates at this time....blah,blah,blah". Sigh, so then i happen to come upon a bank teller part-time position and started that application. Well, that didn't end pretty either because my haunting past came back again. I couldn't even finish the application before a web page came up that said  were sorry, we're unable to process this application at this time, please call for further information. and that was followed by a phone number...... I passed.

Later my DH woke up and we took a trip down to the grocery store for some things we forgot on our last trip. I'm walking around, admiring the cakes when i see the bakery manager...we engage in small talk and i ask her if she happen to be hiring at the moment. She was hiring, but for a cake decorator. I told her i use to decorate cakes back when i was a teenager ,12years ago, but i could give it a go now. She said "OK, follow me and will see what you can do". (CRAP)  She then gives me a picture of a carrot cake, icing and all the icing do-dads to go along with it.  I start my cake experiment and let me tell you, it didn't look like the picture at all. It was off centered and the cake keep moving around so i was getting frustrated. AND she kept coming over and watching me (rolls eyes).

To make a long story short; she took my phone # and said if she doesn't get anyone with more experience she may give me a call.

anyways, so when i got home i was pretty down. Those negative thoughts starting consuming me again and all i could think was ' Good grief, I can't even ice a damn cake?"

maybe its for the best....i really shouldn't be around cakes anyway,lol.

Oh and my calories for today : 1598 :) <----thats the best part of this post ;-)
