One more day…

one more day…until school starts

one more day…until September

one more day…until my new challenge

one more day………..


September is near…

and that means school starts soon. DD#1 starts on Wednesday and DD#2 starts on Thursday. I can honestly say I am happy that school is starting up again! I’m so over summer. 🙂 I also means that Fall is in the air soon, pumpkins, gourds, halloween, leaves, crisp autumn air, I love that stuff!

So I’ve made 2 new pages on my blog. They both have to do with September. One is for weigh-ins and one is listing the challenge info. I still have another day to get things added if I wish, but for now those goals are a good start. I’m also going to get more active into blogging again come September 1st. I’ll have some more free time to devote to it once the kiddos are in school.

Still no news on the job front. I’m still looking and waiting. I’m not desperate yet to find a job, so I’m not too anxious about it.

Nothing much else to report, just stay tuned.

I’m still out and about…..

I have no real desire to post much of anything. Most times I feel too rushed to get ‘everything’ done and blogging isn’t taking much precedence right now.

I had a fantastic time at my yoga retreat. It gave me lots of things to think about. Priorities, etc…. and I guess right now blogging isn’t a priority to me. That may change once the kids are in school and I have a few minutes to myself and my own thoughts and won’t get interrupted.

Will I return?

Well, I’ll be leaving this afternoon for my 3 day yoga retreat. I’m looking forward to my alone time for reflection and learning. I’m going into this retreat with an open mind and heart, which can be difficult for me. I’m going to miss my family like crazy, but I know this time away will be good for me.

Will I return to blogging afterwards? I’m not sure, that’s something I’m going to contemplate over the weekend.

A letter in the mail…

So, I’ve been MIA for a bit. Yep, I had a rough patch over the weekend. It’s bound to happen. Then today I got a lovely letter in the mail from my friend. 🙂 I decided I better put an update on here.

Long story short, I had a pity-party weekend. Not enough exercise and too much food. I feel much more refocused right now, but I don’t really feel like blogging.

I’ll just leave you with this for now….happiness comes from the inside. 🙂

WI & a Wedding!

First off, WI wasn’t great. Yesterday I was super-duper snacky all flippin’ day! I managed to end the day with 32 points, but a lot of that was carbs! WI was 161.4# Up .8# from last Saturday.


  • DPs used: 32
  • WPA used: 19 of 35 (16 left for today and Sunday)
  • APs earned: 4

So, I’m moving on from yesterday and today is a new, hopefully less-snacky day. At least it wasn’t a binge, I had sense enough to not let that happen.  🙂

We have no plans for today until around 3pm when we leave for the wedding in Baraboo. It’s overcast and humid right now, but we turned the AC off yesterday. I’m just soo sick of the weather and can’t wait until tomorrow because they said the humidity will break then.

This morning I did manage 2 APs. I did NOT want to workout, but I bargained with myself and said I had to earn 2 APs and then I could be done. 😛 I’m only at 15 APs earned this week so far, usually I get over 20 for the week, but it is what it is.
