Derailed & back on the tracks

Christmas was so nice. We stayed home until 2pm and then went to hubby’s dad’s house. We all took our time opening gifts and I got some great things that I love!


I got a bit off track with eating on Christmas day, did great yesterday until evening snacking grabbed a hold of me and so far today is great.

It’s hard to believe it’s Monday tomorrow.

  • Monday – gym, work 8:45-1
  • Tuesday – gym, work 8:45-1, bake for C’s birthday party
  • Wednesday – gym, work 8:45-1, pick up kids and head to Dells, C’s party and sleepover
  • Thursday – gym at 6am, no work New Year’s Eve
  • Friday – workout at home, meet Rachel in Madison
  • Saturday – workout at home, work 8:45-2, L sleeping at friend’s house
  • Sunday – get kids motivated to go back to school, bake bread, etc.

She’s 11!

Today is C’s birthday. She was happy, crabby, happy and then running out the door to catch the bus that came EARLY!

She got eggs in a hole with heart cut-outs and BACON for breakfast! Then I had to get her a lottery ticket and a new umbrella. We’ve had so much rain and one of our umbrellas bit the dust this Fall. Then we had the traditional birthday morning sweet treat to make a wish on. (She ate some of it, but most ended up in a container, she was full from breakfast!)

Tonight I’m making Shrimp Fried Rice and Egg Rolls for her birthday supper. No dessert, but I may pick up some popcorn on the way home from work.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I’m going to the gym at 6am for a Partner Festive WOD, then at 9am the girls and I (and Jen) are heading to Zumba. It’s a fundraiser for the Animal Shelter and since we adopted Amelia there, I used a guilt-trip to get the girls to go with me.

At 3pm we are seeing Star Wars in Sun Prairie and then out for supper at Red Robin to celebrate C’s and hubby’s birthdays. We’ll come home and the girls get to open a present and we’ll watch another movie, ELF!!! Tradition and I can’t believe we haven’t seen it yet.

In Weight Watchers news I have now had two weigh-ins and I’ve lost 3.8# in 2 weeks! So happy with that progress.

I’m off to work, enjoy your day!

Christmas is almost here!

On Friday C got her ears double pierced. It was her early birthday present from us.

She’s happy with it and so am I. She said it didn’t even hurt. Of course, getting her eye brows waxed afterwards was more painful. 🙂

This upcoming week is going to be fun!

  • Monday – gym, work 8:45-1
  • Tuesday – gym, work 8:45-1
  • Wednesday – gym, work 1-5, C’s 11th birthday – special supper at home

  • Friday – CHRISTMAS! We are celebrating at home this year and may go to my inlaws later in the day. I’m excited to just have a simple meal at home….we came up with ham, mac-n-cheese, sweet potato casserole and a veggie (I’m thinking asparagus and baby carrots). Dessert is Apple Crisp and ice cream in honor of hubby’s 48th birthday.

That’s what I know!

Yeah, L looks less than thrilled, but she truly was happy. Just hammin’ it up for the camera.

So, WW changed to SmartPoints on Wednesday for me. I decided to start following again since my weight is insane and out of control. I weighed myself last Saturday and from then until yesterday I was down almost 3#! Motivation for me to keep tracking. I have mini goals set for myself. 5# at a time.
