Happy Saturday chickie poos! How is the weekend going so far? Hopefully wonderful. It isn't TOOOOO hot right now....I have been trying to get some projects done and catching up on a few tivo shows while the boys are swimming. They are turning into quite the water lovers/swimmers! I am soooo proud.
We took sissy kristen (my youngest stepdaughter), Tobee (my grandson) and my Mom to the Water Park the other day. It was a blast. No pics...but just a lot of fun!
I am recommitted to my diet...I am doing realllly awesome if I do say so! Some of you might remember I bought a couple month's worth of Nutri system a while ago. And never really got going to far. I had a lot of things going on and didn't want to just eat it here and there...so decided to wait until I was committed. And I have been. For almost two weeks. and I have cut out alcohol. and it is coming off! boy am I learning that my portions were WAY too big. sighhhhh. The good thing about eating prepackaged (except for my produce and yogurt). But you can do the same thing with a lot of the new frozen dinners out there. Just really pay attention to your fat and calories. drink water and water and water. lotsss of veggies. I am determined to not turn 40 fat. ackkkkk!! I have until Feb 16th to lose 40lbs. 7months. so that would be like 5.5 lbs a month. I can do that...I hopeeee!
I have had some touching moments with the boys. I am making a point of really doing fun things with them and just sitting around talking and doing legos and tinker toys. I can tell they are really enjoying it. They have been even more affectionate than usual. I sometimes get caught up in life and house and homework (yes...I make them do weekly lessons during the summer) and computer and family and friends etc...and I forget to spend enough time just playing with them. so fun
