This morning I tried out the DVD I got from the library, Personal Training with Jackie, Xtreme Timesaver Training! Let’s just say it was tough! 30 minutes of cardio and strength combined. A few moves I had to take the easy way out and drop the weight in my hand. I’m interested to try some more of her DVDs.
I also finished up another book last night, Small Changes by Sheila Roberts. Another nice female bonding type book.
I have my Weight Watchers meeting today. I’m not going to weigh-in again since my scale has me down from last week, but not enough to be ‘free’ as a lifetimer. That means I have one week to drop 1-2# so my weigh-in will be where it needs to be to remain free. I look forward to my meeting each week, I’ve gotten to know a couple of members and I enjoy talking to them (when they are there!).
Tomorrow hubby and I are going to meet up with L’s class at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. We’ll eat lunch with them there and then do the tour of the outside gardens and the inside part. We are leaving early so we can get some new landscape timbers at Menards. Hubby finally removed a bush I’ve wanted out for over 2 years now and we need to replace the rotted wood. Now I have to figure out what I want to plant there! 🙂
Friday morning I’m taking the girls to school and attending the assembly at C’s school. The Parent Club is going to be presenting the retiring teachers with a going-away present. I’m also going to be depositing a lot of cookies in their breakroom! We picked up the cookie dough last night from the fundraiser and I have 2 tubs ready to be baked tomorrow. L will also be taking some to her classroom for snack on Friday. Lord knows I don’t need 2 tubs of cookie dough laying around! LOL
Last night we went shoe shopping after supper and after picking up the dough. L is pretty set on shoes for the summer, but she got 2 new pairs of flip flops. C is the tough one. She’s super picky and likes what she likes. 😛 We did manage a new pair of black shoes on clearance for $5! woohoo to saving money! She also got a new pair of tennis shoes, since her 2 pairs at home no longer fit and are now on the way to the landfill. We finished her up with one new pair of black flip flops. That trip should take us through until school starts in the Fall.
There’s not much else happening around here. I’m doing laundry today and just taking it easy, as usual!
I almost forgot about my new oatmeal concoction! This morning I added in rhubarb! Last night I diced some pieces up and added a packet of truvia. This morning I put it into my oats with cinnamon, flaxseed, wheat germ and walnuts! Delicious!
