My life as a woman, wife and mother.

Busy BEE and up 20#!

on April 15, 2014

169 days til 40!

Yesterday afternoon we received an email that L has won the spelling bee at her school! Really? I didn’t know she was even going to compete, that kid! She won out of kids who entered from grades 6-8. She’s a 6th grader who skipped 5th grade, I think that’s great that she won! Her word was delinquent, she said she just guessed at it! LOL

Today we MAXed out on Clean and Jerk. My old MAX was 80# in December. Today I did 100#! It was freakin’ awesome! I really was aiming low, like 85# or 90# would have been fine with me. This is a move I struggle with normally, but today I felt I was getting the form down and it made it a lot easier to lift heavy. So glad!

Soon I’m going to head to the basement for some more exercise while I watch Alton Brown on DVD. The shows only last 20 minutes which is the perfect short workout time. The bonus is I learn things about baking & cooking, like the science behind ingredients, etc. I truly find it interesting that someone has figured out all the ins and outs of baking the perfect loaf of bread or muffin or pasta, etc.

I work from 1-5 today and then after supper I’m going to do some grocery shopping. I didn’t realize how much we are out of until I went to make eggs for the girls this morning. I usually shop before WW on Wednesday, but I need a bunch of frozen items and I don’t have a way to keep things frozen for 2 hours while I work.

I’m curious to weigh-in tomorrow. It will be nice to not have the stress anymore, now I just need to focus on staying at 157# or below and not going beyond that! LOL

Enjoy the sunshine! It’s almost blinding shining off the snow on the ground! Yeah, I said snow, it’s still around from yesterday, but it better leave soon!
