March For Babies

March 5, 2009 at 2:32 am (Blessings, Exercise, Love) (, , , , )

I have decided to do the March for Babies/March of Dimes walk this year.  It’s 5 miles total and I’m getting geared up for it already.  My husband is going to walk it with me and we’re going to be pushing C in the stroller.  I’m so pumped to have this opportunity to enrich my life as well as the lives of others.  If you want to support me click on the banner below!

Playing Catchup

It’s been a crazy 4 days since I last posted.  J went back to work on Monday and we’ve been busy everyday since.  C had his 9 month checkup and he’s doing wonderful.  20lbs 10.5 oz.  28.5 inches long  He’s going to be very tall.

While I was there I weighed myself; 380 lbs.  I’ve lost another 6lbs in a month.  I started at 396 so that’s 16lbs total.  I’m still working out at least 4 times a week.  This weekend I hope to get to the Y to swim some.  I enjoy the water and it makes my body feel so good. 

We’re having a hard time with bills, but then again so is everyone right now.  It’s hard but we’ll get through it and we’ll be better and stronger in the end.

What a blur…

February 7, 2009 at 8:15 pm (Day to Day life, Exercise, Finances, Health Care) (, , )

The last few days have been a blur.  We’re slowly reclaiming our house from the chaos and negative energy.  We’re literally working from the ground up.

There has been a setback with the progress of getting myself healthy.  I got an appointment to see a rheumatoid specialist but they want $250 up front.  TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY FUCKING DOLLARS!!!!  Yeah, we don’t have that and won’t have it for a couple of years.  I call the office back on Monday to see if I can get in without the money.  If not, then I’m calling a social worker at the hospital.   There has to be a way for me to go to the doctor.  I have something wrong with me and I have every intention of finding out what.

The hubster and I went out on a date last night to a local pizza joint.  It was fun and man did we have some great sex afterwards.  We’ll never listen to Justin Timberlake in the same way ever again.  /ohyeah

As far as my ‘workouts’ I’ve been doing crazy amounts of house work and errand running.  So I’m not really behind it’s just not been structured exercise.

And that’s it, in a nut shell.

Kroger: What a workout!

February 3, 2009 at 10:58 pm (Exercise) (, )

I did my workout at Kroger today.  We needed groceries for my new ‘change in eating habits”; which starts tomorrow.  We were there for about an hour and a half.  It was intense to say the least.  Kroger does “Senior Citizen Day” on Tuesdays and it’s like a mad house every Tuesday.  I was so tired after all that walking and standing.  I think it was more of a workout than the treadmill is.

Today’s Accomplishment

February 3, 2009 at 12:31 am (Exercise, Finances) (, , , )

After work I went to the Y and did my 15 minutes on the treadmill.  It wasn’t nearly has hard as I thought it was going to be after missing all last week.

J and I made a huge stride in the bedroom filing cabinet.  All our important papers and documents have been filled away correctly!!!!!!!   /woot /woot  This is huge and very very important.  We were able to par down the stuff we need to burn but not keep.  We got our tax stuff together for our appointment on Wednesday!  I’m so excited and I hope we can keep the momentum going!

I also started a Money Journal.  Hopefully after a month we’ll be able to actually see our mistakes and bills so that we can budget in the future.
