Workout Day #5

Posted by Hope at 9:28 PM 1 comments
2 1/2 miles ... it was really hard to get motivated to do it!!! I wasn't feeling really good, but decided I haven't done any kind of exercise in a few days, I had better do something. The funny thing is I was only going to do a mile, but I was listening to an audio book and just kept going and going.

Dinner took longer than I planned to make, so I didn't get to take Delphi for her afternoon walk.

Is this a hint???

My mammogram went well today.. it wasn't as bad as I had heard it would be!!

I think I am catching a cold or something ... I feel horrible today, I was up alot last night with a sore throat. Today is has mostly been a sinus headache.

I had all kinds of plans for things I was going to post on the blog today, but I just want to go to bed!! But, I am waiting for a call from Shelby to come get him from school.. they had something tonight.

I haven't heard anything from the library about the job I applied for .. I think I will call them tomorrow ... to bug them a little more.

Days End

Posted by Hope at 8:50 PM 0 comments
I sit here at my new MacBook with toothpicks holding my eyelids open!! I am soo sleepy, but refuse to go to bed until I reformat my old Macbook so I can start putting the stuff on it for Shelby tomorrow.

Me and Shelby now have pretty much matching MacBook's ... sooo, when I got my new one today, I had to make sure we could tell them apart, so I bought a pink hard case for mine :) -- I will post a picture tomorrow!

Today's workout was well ... for the fingers! I didn't run or walk today.. mostly because I was too caught up in the computer world, but also for female reasons ( I will not expand on that) I plan on doing something tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be a fun day -- I have my mammogram... my first one!!

To the Apple store I go...

Nothing as planned

Posted by Hope at 7:40 PM 0 comments
Nothing went as planned today. I planned on going to the library. I planned on going to run. I planned on getting something accomplished. Well, I did get the pantry cleaned out, but that was it. Seriously, I did nothing else productive today !!

I watched 5 episodes of Weeds from Season 3. (all done with season 3)

I got an email from Shelby's teacher and he didn't turn in a paper, which he had an agreement with the teacher about missing assignments... sooo, he went from a passing grade down to a 52 !!!! With that, I decided to email the rest of his teachers, to find out that in another class... he is too busy flirting than working!! He is a Sophomore -- I should not have to treat him like a 1st grader!!!

Tomorrow will be more productive .. at least I keep telling myself that.. .we will see.

I got brave and decided to clean out/ organize my pantry... 1st let me say... for a 4 bedroom house, almost 3000 sq ft you would think I would have a bigger pantry... Here is the before picture...

Well, while cleaning it out .. I found I have 6 cans of Apple pie filling ... huh? I make apple pie once maybe twice a year... and I have 6 cans???? I also have a LOAD of tomato sauce... I don't know why I have soo much ... LOL Ok, the 500 bags of popcorn.. that is for my popcorn addiction.. that is ok :)

Here is the after picture...

It is Monday ... yuk yuk yuk !!! It seems it has been 19 days since I was laid off :( I still have not found a job. I have applied for many, but nothing yet. I am hoping to find something soon.

Other than looking for a job, I am going to work on backing up my computer so it will be quicker when I get my new laptop this week. I also have a ton of books I have been wanting to read...

Workout day #3

Posted by Hope at 9:32 AM 0 comments
I have decided to keep a journal of my workouts on this blog as well. I am hoping it will help me keep motivated also!

Day 3

9am - walked 2.02 miles - it was a fast pace walk. I used the treadmill which I think the motor may be going out :( It was a little too chilly this morning to go walk outside. I am going to try and go this afternoon and walk about 1 -2 miles when I take Delphi for her walk.

New computer!!!

Posted by Hope at 5:50 PM 1 comments
Shelby's Powerbook seemed to have some problems the other day.. it of course isn't covered under the warranty anymore. I remembered that we have a special clause in our homeowners policy for our computers. So, I called the insurance company today after going to Apple store and being told that it had suffered trauma. Well, trauma is covered. After talking to them and telling them all the specs about the computer, they decided I needed to get a new one :) So, they went online to the Apple store and picked one comperable. She is transferring the money to my account tonight -- dang they are fast!! I am getting he white 13" MacBook It is pretty much the same as mine, but upgraded ... sooo ... I will get the new one and Shelby will get my old one. Now, I just have to wait for the money to get into my account and off to the Apple store I go :)

I got a call from my DR the other day and he said I have HIGH CHOLESTEROL :( I have decided to start eating better and working out. I need alot of motivation to keep up a workout routine, so I spent $29.00 and got the Nike+ Sport Kit. I got and got it all set up and went upstairs to the treadmill and tried it out... I did 1/2 first (had to answer the phone)... anyway, a made a mini (you can see to the left). Let me tell you Miss Mini is a bitch!!! She is a little annoying, saying I/she is a couch potato, ect. I decided I would go run some more, so I did a mile... thinking that would make her happy, but NO.. she is still talking smack ! Thanks Dawn for convincing me to make her and I even have her as my screensaver (thanks again Dawn).

Since I am a techie kind of person, I am hoping this will keep me somewhat motivated.

I am soo sleepy this morning ! Last night we had some really bad weather. I was worried about Tornadoes! Luckily, it was an uneventful night !

The kids are off to school, hubby is in bed sick.. I am sitting here watching Fringe from last night. ( I decided to try and go to bed early) I noticed I only have 2 hours left on my DVR, guess I better watch some TV today :)

I found this cartoon in our little town paper... I had to share... it was pretty good since I was just laid off myself.
