I tried a new workout today. Pilates. It was my kind of workout! I didn't get all sweaty. No boys. Comfy clothes. Bare feet. I have plans to try it again next Wednesday.......If I can walk by then.

Don't worry it's not only the blog I am neglecting but the elliptical and treadmill too.

got out and put on

A very much needed girls night out left me with a good 5 lbs, or more, to lose. Thanks girls! It was worth it. Next time maybe my girls night out should be to a Pole Fitness class. Funnest class you will ever go to! Who's in?

is anyone feeling neglected?

I haven't been very good about posting lately. But don't you fret.... 30 by 30 is still progressing.
The biggest change of the week has been with the kids. They REQUESTED broccoli tonight for dessert! Crazy hu! This was after our stir fry dinner with asparagus on the side. We are not big meat eaters anymore (not that we ever were, but we are definitely eating less) so the money we save on meat just gets moved over to the produce bill. Instead of having one side of veggies we have 2, or 3 if you count dessert too. Even the baby elephant likes his veggies! His unfortunately look nothing like real veggies all colorful and crisp. His are all smashed up, runny and a weird greenish color. bleh. So glad I have teeth!

it's working!

Great news. I was able to wear a skirt to church today! And not just any skirt, but one of my NON-elastic waisted skirt! It was still a little snug but IT FIT. I didn't have anything pouring out the top either... well I don't think I did. If any of you reading this go to church with me let me know if I am wrong. But it was a good feeling that maybe finally all the work is paying off, and that the Gap makes a strong zipper!

don't get too excited

This may be a little premature but I think I might give up sugar.
The fructose was a piece of cake....or lack there of, but I think sugar in general will be super hard! I have a few friends, neighbors, and clients who have all given up sugar and they have had fantastic results. I can only imagine all the money they will save from not having cavities filled! I will for sure not be able to give up chocolate covered strawberries.... because after all they are good for you.
Ya... after thinking about it a few more minutes I don't think I am up for it right now. I'm going to grab a cookie.

call me crazy

WHAT WAS I THINKING!?! I must have been high on fructose....but now that I haven't had any for a while, and my sugar levels have returned to normal, I am beginning to see my life how it ACTUALLY is.
Make my own bread. phff. I was completely delusional. When am I going to find the time to make bread? I work 6 days a week ... not to mention all the other jobs I have that don't pay squat and I do them 24/7! I have 4 kids... 5 if you count the big one. I run kids to practice, friend's houses, and school things. I visit teach, attend church meetings, and volunteer. I have a home cooked meal on the table EVERY night! Make bread?....why didn't anyone tell me how crazy that sounded? Do you realize that in order to make bread you have to let it rest for at least 2 hours? Why should bread dough get to rest if I don't?!
I have come to accept the fact that I am no Wonder Woman. Sam's Club is more than capable of providing adequate nutritional bread for my family from now on. I have a life to live and I am the ONLY one who can do that!
