Hit another snag this week - on Tuesday my ear started hurting something VICIOUS!!! Got some drops, went to the chiro, started using my night guard for my TMJ - 95% better!


Oh yeah, I remembered what I forgot last time around (what came to me on my walk the other day).

My grandma (wow how I miss her!) would get on my granddaddy (I miss him, too) about if he did something - for example, talking on the telephone on the front porch (can we say COUNTRY?). She'd make the comment, "I talk about people who do that, so YOU (as one of my loved ones) can't do that!" I'm gonna take on that stance about a few things, namely being whiny and complaining. Some folks seem to whine and complain about EVERYTHING - it gets old really fast and, I'll be honest, I talk about people that whine! So - I have to make sure that I'm not whiny or complaining because that wouldn't make sense now, would it???

Back in bitness!

Whew, thank the Lord we're all back healthy!

The end of last week went well, we got some snow down here but nothing to write about or anything (so that story line ends here).

On Saturday the babe and I ventured to Huntsville for a birthday party - the roads weren't bad and the ride didn't see very long! Fun times at the party and it was great seeing a friend again (haven't seen her in about 18 months - we'd both just found out we were pregnant)!

On Sunday the babe and I went to church service then headed back home since Daddy wasn't feeling well. Checked on him, then we ventured out to do our 7 mile walk! Too bad it got dark, we only got a little over 6 miles in. This week Mama is getting her new shoes so the walk will be much more cushioned!

Monday morning I had a good weigh in, was down 2.5 lbs from last week and back to my lowest weight since we started the Biggest Loser challenge! Hooray for walking!

I probably forgot something, been meaning to update but haven't...will do better next time (for real)!

No bueno...

yeah, that's how I've been since I last posted :(

Got sick the following night, so I haven't worked out nor done anything with my hair - so I had no updates.

I'm glad that my husband and baby girl are better, and that I didn't get what they had! We're moving and grooving through February now...this year is flying by!

I have about 6-7 weeks until my baby girl's first birthday! Yes - I'm in shock; has that much time elapsed? She's so smart and gorgeous and funny and goofy, it actually seems like she's always been in our "crew"! I'm at work and missing her, so I'm gonna change the subject before I get sad!

Anyhow, hope to get back on the wagon this weekend with eating healthy, moving my body and all that jazz! I'm glad to be feeling better now, so it's time to kick it!

Yeahhhhhhh boyyyyyyyy...

Today was a good day! I stayed in from work so I wouldn't pass on my family's virus to anyone else, and my crew is feeling better! PRAISE GOD!

Also, I was checking out a new friend's blog and she mentioned Hip Hop Abs...I found it and did it (only had to stop twice) - woooooo hoooooo! It was a great workout, not too hard for me (not having worked out since before July 08), and fun! I will admit, I had to take it a lil easy on the "booty pop" moves, I have a lil more resistance than the folks in the video ;)

Lastly - I did my hair! I've been wanting two strand twists for the longest but was always a scaredy cat! The past month I've been having my cousin braid my hair into a bun and I put a drawstring ponytail on top, but this weekend I decided I'd do my own hair. I washed my hair in the braids (my hair is of the variety that I need to follow the "never loose and wet" regime), then as I unbraided I applied my oil mix (EVOO, castor oil, shea butter, coconut oil and maybe some aloe vera in there - I forget) and made twists. I did it in sections so I wouldn't get overtired, and made the most of downtimes when baby Faith was asleep. Finished product ain't bad...I'll take pics tomorrow when I'm dressed for work. I'm really proud of myself for JUST DOING IT and not punking out again!

Well, time to read some word and me and the babe are going to sleep!


sickness is never fun. Big Mac and Faith have been sick this entire weekend, so I'm just glad to NOT be sick! Weight loss wise I had a gain this morning, but that just reiterates the need that I need to DO SOMETHING and not just cross my fingers that the weight is gonna fall off - ya know?

So, I found a workout buddy! She is across the world, but we can keep abreast of each other's workouts and stuff thru this cool thang called blogging - yayyyyy!

I did say in the intro to this whole thing that this would be "me being accountable"...so now I've got some buddies/readers to be accountable to - LOVES IT!

Expect a check in before the day is over - I really should have something accomplished while I'm at home being Nurse Mommy and Nurse Wife!

Sooooo yeah, about writing more...

I can't seem to update this thing! So, what I will do is have this keep me accountable with what I'm up to!

I'll be participating (walking) in my first half marathon this spring! I've been half doing my training schedule...but I've got to pick up the pace if I'm going to be ready in 7 weeks!!!

So - last night I met a friend and we walked around the parking lot while her daughter was in dance class. That rocked, so I have a guaranteed "buddy" for Tuesdays...who wants to walk with me on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays??? That's the thing, I shouldn't NEED anyone to keep me going, you know? No one helped me get out of shape! Ya feel me?
