That is what I did this past weekend. But really - when are dh and I going to be able to go on a camping trip with no kids again? When will we be able to go away for the whole weekend without kids again? I totally get not making a camping trip a "special event" since we do that every month. I get that! I even get going out to dinner with the hubs not a "special event" anymore since we get to do that on a regular basis now it seems. But I think I deserved to sit there, eat junk and do NOTHING. Usually I'm up running around, playing with the kids, getting what they want, getting what dh wants, making food, running in and out of the motorhome. I'ts tiring!! I got to sit there and relax. It was AWESOME! Of course, now I'm having a hard time getting back in the groove I started last week. ugh. I did great last week. I need to continue it.

Went to spin class again last night. Sweated my butt off. =) Well not really but soon I will. ;) It was awesome. Loved it!

I have way too many "events" coming up. This weekend we have a birthday party. Next weekend we have a birthday party. The following weekend is Halloween. The following weekend - birthday party. The next weekend  - the twins birthday party. The weekend after that - Connor's birthday party. Then it's Thanksgiving. :sigh: Doesn't look like i will partake in cake for awhile. I think I'll wait until Conoor's bday party. That way I can have what I want and it'll be worth it. =) So needless to say. I'll be a little busy the next few weeks!!!

GAG Week One Weigh In

Are you ready for it? I am! I weighed in today at 173.8! That is a 3 lb loss from last week! Yee haw! For some reason I wasn't expecting to see that much of a loss this week. Have I been in my calorie range? Yes. Have I exercised? More than I have been! Do I deserve it? HELL YES!

Last night we went out to dinner for a fundraiser for Connor's school. I picked out what I was going to eat BEFORE we went. I stuck to it when we got there. I knew I would have chips and salsa, I mean that's the best part! So I made sure I ate lower calorie breakfast and lunch and tried not to snack too much yesterday. And it worked! I still have calories left to have some chips. And my twins decided they like the rice and ate all my rice. So I never even ate that part of my meal. =) Yeah!

We are going camping this weekend. It's just me and my hubby, no kids. I'm going to be enjoying myself. ;) Hopefully not too much though! I'll try to reign it in but no guarantees since I have no idea when the next time we'll get a WEEKEND to ourselves! LOL!

So I went to my first spinning class in . . . well a VERY long time. So let's just call it my first spinning class. =) It was freakin' AWESOME!! I felt good. I loved sweating. I loved breathing. I loved feeling hot! And i loved that feeling of accomplishment I got on my way home knowing I did it. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I can probably push myself harder next time. I just want to take it easy in the beginning so I don't over exert myself. Don't want to do that! So now my friend and I have a date every Tuesday at 7pm to take the spinning class! Woo hoo!!! =) By the way, my butt HURTS. Those seats are ridiculously uncomfortable!

It says: "My Solution to a Healthy Lifestyle". It actually came out better than I though it would!

Monday, Monday

Well it's the first week of GAG and how am I doing?? Not too bad! I didn't do so hot on Saturday. We had not one but TWO birthday parties to go to. I overindulged. But I drank a lot of water and only 2 diet Pepsi's that day. Sunday i did awesome and stayed within my calorie range. It was higher than I like but I still was withing my point range. YEAH!!

I attempted to wake up this morning and do the TurboJam DVD. Yeah um, that didn't work. It's just not feasible. I'll just have to squeeze exercise in in the evening. Ugh. I'm going to try and do the DVD tonight but my room needs to be picked up so I have room to do it. So I may just pick up tonight and forget the exercising. Tomorrow night my friend and i are going to start taking a spinning class on Tuesday nights. It's been YEARS since I've been. Hope I can hang! And at least I'll start using my gym membership again. LOL! Now to find my card so I can get in!

GAG 2010 Beginning Weigh In

Well here is my beginning weigh in for the GAG 2010 challenge:

Weight: 176.8

I guess this means I'm going to start weighing in on Fridays. Maybe that will help me to keep going. I definitely need something to shake things up because what I have been doing is not working! And how sad. I am HIGHER than my beginning weight last year for the GAG 2009 challenge. :( Actually I'm exactly 3 lbs higher. I lost 20.4 lbs last year during the 16 week challenge (yes it was four week longer than this one) and I even wasn't doing that great the last four weeks so I can hopefully do the same if not BETTER this time. Good luck all you GAG participants!!!
