MIA, Wedding, Babysitting, Sick, Playing Catch up!!!

First I want to say........I have missed blogging....and I need to get back to my goal of once a week. Thanks to everybody who has been motivation to me. I have been trying to catch up mostly on reading.

I want to share this with you...Roni is having a contest...below is the information so I can enter the contest...there will be a winner..go to her website which is linked below for this awesome see how you can win!!

Check out Roni’s Weight Loss Blog for more information.

As all of you know I have had a lot going on with weddings, showers, just has been life nonstop I think since March...we went to our last wedding of the year Oct. 11th. It was a much needed trip. Not only did I see college friends that I haven't seen in almost two years..but it was time away together..just me and John which is important...we would have rather been at home relaxing getting stuff done but we didn't care it was just us two. I didn't track points that whole weekend which I was mad at myself but thats life...and I did my best to make good decisions while being out of town and thats all I can do... :) the world isn't going to end because of it!!

I had to babysit last week Wednesday through Friday...for a five year old...and of course that whole time I babysat...I was SICK!!! if there is one thing I's being sick.. i had no voice from Wednesday - Friday. Needless to say I had to get up earlier while taking care of her which didn't help for trying to beat this sickness...then I went to work all the days..but was sent home all three days. We were home this weekend..FINALLY..but of course I was still sick, which turned into John being sick..he was home Monday-Tuesday from work!! But I think we are both almost back to 100% again...

I am now playing catch up with blog reading, work, and I have yet to go work out (in two weeks!!) I need the motivation from these websites to help me. Thanks to everybody who has been following..and I am sorry for not sticking to my goal of blogging once a week. I will try better..just need to get back on track. Hopefully now that my body has hit shutdown..that I can start fresh, get caught up in life (which i'm still working on), and start feeling better about everything in my life!!! I plan to work out hopefully at least once this week, but I still have a lot do to do that I am behind on.

Stay hydrated and eat those veggies..we have been cooking a lot more at home, which has been helping with spending money. I just hope that life stays slow for a while so we can keep cooking..especially since the holidays are coming up soon!!! Then life will be crazy again.

I watched Biggest Loser last night..I love that show and it truly is another motivation for me...those people are amazing to see how far they come with all that exercise and weight loss.

ever have too much going on?

I have so much going on...everybody keeps telling me that things will slow down..but I have heard that since Christmas..and it's almost Christmas again...EEK...seriously time goes by too fast!!!

Things are going well on my end...I am so excited for the cubs in the playoffs even though there was a bit of an upset last night. I was very bummed out about the game. We are having people over on Saturday so I'm in the process of thinking of a healthy menu..but we might not even have to worry about food since the game is not on until 9:00 pm our time..but not sure what time we plan on having people over yet.

I have yet to make it to curves this week....I wrote it in my calendar for there are no excuses...I just sometimes wish they were open later because by the time I get stuff that I need to get done..they are already closed..they close at 8:00pm usually...I'm going to really try to get there tomorrow but Fridays are hard since I work til 5:00 and they are only open until 6:00 but we'll see what happens.

Food journaling is going...I have been recording everything I have eaten this week.. I have been trying my darnest to make the best choices..however I have being using a lot of my Flex points this week...TOM just ended on Monday which usually doesn't affect anything...I just think I have been eating food with a lot more I have to watch that more.

I have been drinking lots of water which is great since I was slacking on that. I need to do a weigh in at home....I havent done one in a long time...I know I've gained cause awhile back I stepped on the scale before bed and I had gained a few pounds...and with not working out that is not helping I'm sure..but I'm staying positive and going to keep on going!!! I feel better overall though which is what matters.

I watched Biggest Loser and was totally bummed to see Colleen's dad go was a little emotional for me and I've been such a sap lately so I was definately teary eyed during the elimination and even when they were deciding who was going to be the one to go home...what an amazing guy to have lost 70 pounds..his daughter will be so proud of him.

I also watched the rest of Season one of One Tree Hill...I absolutely am hooked on that show.....what else have I been watching..lots of cooking shows as usual..speaking of..I read in somebody's blog...but don't remember where/who that they had a link up for Rachael Ray and a menu planning tool..I've searched the website and can't find..anybody who can help? or know what I'm talking about?

And last but not least in tv..I watched america's next top model and was shocked to see Joslyn stay..but thats just my opinion...

Thanks for all the support along the way...I really appreciate it.
