Still Alive!

Yes, believe it or not I am still alive after yesterday's workout. We worked our legs with weights doing lunges, squats, lifts etc. It was quite the workout. I am so sore today, but I still did my treadmill after all. (Maybe the treadmill isn't so bad) It's time to start toning. Ashley asked me if I was going with her today and I said not only NO but HELL NO! I got my haircut & colored after by Ashley, she says she cut it like Katie Holmes new haircut? I'll have to post a picture of it.

weekly update

On Sunday I taught the lesson in YW's - it went very well. I am quite pleased with myself. Then to hear the sad news of our Prophet Sunday night was sad.
Monday was s.s.d.d
Tonight I had WW's. I have lost a total of 22.5 lbs. I am in a slump! I am so sick of the &*$@ treadmill I could scream. It's sorda a love/hate relationship. I like what it's doing for me but it SUCKS while I'm doing it. Then I had YW's, we worked on Personal Progress.
Ashley has talked me into going with her tommorow morning at 6:30 a.m. to her personal trainers workout. This should be good. I'll let you know tommorow how that went (if I'm still alive) As for now 10/4

3 x's in 2 months

Ryanna has strep again! This is 3 x's in 2 months. Did I say that Ryanna has strep throat again? I am so strepped out I could scream. Last night Ryan and I went and saw The bucket list - it was alright. I think Ryan liked it more than I did. I love going to the movies. I just rented Mr. Woodcock so we'll see how that one is. That's all for now.

27 dresses

Tonight I went with my friend Missy to see the movie 27 dresses. It was a major chick flick and such a good one. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes chick fliks (what girls doesn't & what guy doesn't after his girl has just seen one) It makes you both happy!

strep throat

I have been feeling like total crap. Tuesday night I had the chills. Wednesday I wake up with a sore throat during the day I get body aches, chills, a bad headache, a fever. I have never felt so miserable. I've never had strep throat so I don't know the symptoms etc.. So I think it might be, so I go to the doctor this morning and sure enough it's strep throat. I think I honestly got it so that I will have more sympathy when Ryanna gets it. So I was going to get a shot but then she found out it would be 2 big shots in my butt so she thought it was best that I swollow these horse pills. As if your throat doesn't hurt bad enough here swollow these 2 x a day for 10 days. The worst part of it all is that I have to miss BUNKO tonight. What about my sanity?

10% keychain

Last night at ww I was awarded my 10% keychain for losing the first 10% of my starting weight. Now I need to decide on a weight within my range and maintain for 6 weeks to become a lifetime. I want to lose more but not have to pay. I was going to take a picture of me holding it but I looked like crap so here's without me.

black eye

If you think he looks bad, you should see the other kid. j/k Stratton came out of Brayden's bedroom crying & holding his eye. I think he tripped and hit one of Brayden's dresser drawers that was left open but I'm not sure because the rest of us were in the kitchen.

w w update

I finally had ww after having 3 weeks off. I lost 4.5 during the holidays and have lost a total of 18.5 in 9 weeks. I guess that working out every day is paying off. It gives me motivation to keep doing it.

Doctor Day

Well I guess you could say today was doctor day. First I took Ryanna to the doctor, yeah that's right strep throat again. Then I had my annual check up, now that is what I call fun stuff. I told Ryan that I got my IUD out. He did not like the sound of that. He worked in the office & tended the kids.
Yesterday we went to Avieree's baby blessing and dinner. Ryanna was in Idaho & Karl came & tended the boys so it was just the two of us. Ashley is still begging me to tend her a couple of days a week. YIKES!!

I've been in bed most of the day not feeling too good. Luckily grandpa & grandma took Ryanna to Idaho with them, except she called tonight and thinks she has strep throat again and wanted to come home. SORRY no can do see ya tommorrow. Brayden & Stratton have fought most of the day. When I finally got out of bed one of the times, they had taken a whole big box of nerds thrown them all over the hardwood floor & called it their "slip & slide."

Card Friday?

Well Shel cancelled today because she had to go pick Jaxon up from school (or so she says). So it was quite a surprise - mom actually came up to my house today and we had our own card day. It was quite the game. We played 3 different rounds. I went out every time. Mom couldn't do crap! I had an enjoyable time. I'm not so sure if mom will ever come up again. Thanks for being such a good sport mom. Love ya!

New Year's Resolution!

I guess my blog should be one of my New Year's Resolutions! I just like reading other people's blogs not my own. Christmas was great. New Year's Eve sucked! We were suppose to go to a party that got canceled at the last minute, due to the flu. So we just stayed home and played games with the kids, ate pizza and went to bed at 10 p.m. New Year's Day, I left Ryan home with the kids and went shopping and to a movie. The movie was great. JUNO I would definetly recommend it.
