Thur 8/14 Cooking day

Ok so by the time I got home today the boys had already ate with moms and weren't hungry. BUT I had made spagettii and meatballs and garlic bread yesterday. Ok so it wasnt from scratch but it was made by my non the less LOL.

I did see a lot of receipes come into my inbox for grilling and with this perfect summer weather we have been having I think Im going to start doing that. Lots of chicken, and veggies etc. May have to move this to a Saturday postings cuz I would rather cook then lol. Need to work that out when Im not so tired.

Called WDW and got the rest of my ADR's I might have to do some rearanging to make it work with our tix or just make our 3day tix, park hopable. We shall see.

Off to bed, Grey's had me in total tears and drained. Thank god tmrw is Friday. Its been a long week. Im vowing to work out Saturday and Sunday. THinking about bypassing the Sunday for Friday but know I eat more on the weekends so a weekend workout is better.

Wed 5/13 Clean House Day

So today I didnt have much time to do as much decluttering and straightinging as I wanted to do as tonight was LOST season finally. SO after the gym came home and quickly did the dishes. Well their clean, still need to put them away. That is what tmrw is for. I can spread the cleaning out I guess LOL.

I also cleaned up all the clothes in my room. I can now see my couch again and the clean hampers are empty again.... just in time for me to fill'um up again. I have about a good 2-3 loads of laundry to do again, along with put a lot of it away. Going to try and get that done tmrw so that on Friday its not so bad when E comes home.

Im hoping with baby steps I eventually will have a neat, clean, decluttered house. Or at least I keep telling myself that. This week I will work on straightining it all up, so that next week can start the decluttering process.

Tuesday 5/12 Journal Jar #1

Told you I had a Jar LOL. Its nothing special but I have over 100+ question to go through. I know I said once a week I would do so I have enough for a 2 yr blog LOL. 

What things do you enjoy today, that you enjoyed doing as a child?

Well if I still played softball, that would be it. But since I dont, I guess I will have to say baking. I remember as a kid helping my mom with cookies, or licking the batter and I still do that today. Im not a cooker by any means I hate cooking. But there is just something about baking that I love. (probably the sampling after LOL) Its a way to be creative and try new things. I love hearing people tell me OMG that was so good. 

I would love to take a cake decorating class. Its not something I have a lot of patience for but I think would be fun to try. Thats whats so great about baking, you do some mixing/preparings, then put it to bake, then decorate. Inbetween all those steps there is always a break, great for people with no patience like me LOL. Plus at the end of all your hard work you get to taste it and see if it paid off or not.

Having those memories baking with my mom, making xmas cookies is a great memory and im so happy to be able to pass those on to my boys. (Yet they mostly just want to lick the beaters and decorate the cookies) Off to go finish off the brownies I just made LOL

Monday 5/11 Weigh in Day

Well today was the big day to start over. Diet, exersice the whole shabang. I had planned on getting up at 0530 to do an hour of the wii fit.. but sleep just sounded so much better! Trmw I will do it! I *WILL*! So I weighed myself this am and I was 186, after a coffee this am and a breakfast quesadilla from Del Taco. A mini peanut butter and cake batter w/reeces peanut butter cup yougurt. I hit the gym did 3 miles on the tread and worked my legs. I now weigh 185. Thats WITH clothes on.. I weigh myself naked (I know not the visual you need... me either LOL) so I probably am 184 LMAO or wishful thinking!

My overal goal is 140 but im breaking it up into smaller goals. 5lbs a month! I would like to reach 165 by the time we head to Disney so that all my shorts and bathing suit can fit again. I may have to do that Lemonade Diet for a week once a month to make sure I reach that goal.
My next goal is my bday/the marine corps ball. I would like to be 155 by then. Then by Mothers day of 2010 -140lbs.. GOAL! I know I can do it, I have gotten to 152 before. Then let myself get lazy. No more!

I hit the grocery store after the gym to get some stuff to make breakfast in the morning cuz buying is waiting money, time and calories. The stuff at Del Taco has MAD carbs/cals. So figure I can do it all for less! Got a salad for tmrw's lunch. Need to start thinking of making a menu for the week. So I dont go out and grab crap to eat.

I also thought of a new way to work out at lunch at least on Mondays' and Tuesday's. I will rent a movie from Albertson's since they have Redbox video things, I get a free code on Mon to use. Then I will walk on Tue. to return it. Its about 3.5miles there and back.

Today I also had to call and try and make ADR's (advanced dinning reservations) for our Disney trip but unfortunatly there computer system was down so after an hour on the phone with one of THE funniest CM's (cast members) I finally had to give up and go back to work... oh well I try again tmrw. Hoping they still have my picks.

Going to go watch Benjermin Buttons now, got it for Free at the Redbox dvd. I love technology! lol

(click on pic to have a better view of my fat @$$ LOL)

Goal for next week 184
along with to work out all week and watch what I eat!

365 days to a new me

I have wanted to do this for some time now, but just never had the push that I needed. Today, mother's day now marks a great time for me to start. I want to use this time, and space to help reflect on who I was, who I am, and who I want to be. Im looking to change and improve myself, in mind, spirit and of course body. My hope is that this will help me become a better mom, wife, daughter, sister, coworker, etc....over all a better me! (Yet, Im not sure how much better I can get LOL maybe I should work on the sarcasim 1st lol)

How am I going to get the parts of me refined and improved? One day at a time, one part at a time. Each day will be dedicated to certain things to help keep me focused on the overal BIG picture keep me accountable. Plus it will help keep me from being bored doing the same thing OVER AND OVER. lol

  • Sunday- Agenda Day, Plan what is happening in the upcoming week. Great way to get my mind in the game and prepared for what life has to offer. Also share what happened with last weeks plans.
  • Monday- Body Day, I will weight in and set a new weekly goal for myself. I will weigh what my licence says again.
  • Tuesday- Journal Jar Day, I have a jar on my desk that is filled with 365 questions, that pertain to me. Each day I will pull one out and see what memory or thought comes from it.
  • Wendsday- Clean House Day, I will use this day to share what I did to clean/declutter my home. I will be free of junk... someday.
  • Thursday- Cooking/Baking day, I vow to at least cook this one day a week. I will try a new receipe and get my family to try something new in the process.
  • Friday- Scrapbook Day, A layout a day is doable, I *will* use my scrapbook stash!
  • Saturday- Picture Day, I will go and take *A* picture, (or how ever many I want of anything I want). Not only do I get to do something that I love (photography) but I also learn a lil more about my camera too.

Since today is Sunday, no better time to start my year journey then now.

*Today (in fact I need to get ready) we will be meeting the family at the halfway mark for them and us to have lunch at El Torito. Im really looking forward to the Margarita's, but then again when aren't I lol.

*Monday- Have to get back to the gym. Since I was working on mothers day gifts all week I ditched the gym, and boy can I feel it. Back on the old diet regimine also. Also have to call Disney and make our ADR's (Advanced Dinning Reservation's) since we will be 90 day's out woohoo!

*Tuesday- I will sew (did I just say that after all this weeks madness with mothers day gifts?) the disney shirt I bought for myself last yr for the cruise. It will just take a straight sew, I *shouldnt* have any issues with it! (I hope)

*Wednsday- LOST SEASON FINALLY... nuff said

*Thursday- GREY'S SEASON FINALLY... need I say more?

*Friday- Thinking about renting a movie since nothing is good on

*Saturday- Going to take the boys to Temecula's Western Days always fun times there, and good food! (there goes the diet)

So 1day down 364 to go, I can do this, NO I WILL DO THIS!
