Dear Lovely Readers,
I am still alive. I have not been kid-napped by my students or lost in the boxes left from Friday's Fall Festival.
This weekend was a mix of crazy, fun, and nasty! Friday was fun but Saturday our weather was nasty. After an adventure to the YMCA to workout and a crazy time in Wal-mart buying groceries I decided to stay home for the remainder of Saturday. I just enjoyed some lovely tootie-roll pops that were meant for kids (or me!). On Sunday (following my dye and HFCS high) I decided to clean, clean, clean and begin our next painting project. Clearly I was insane!
Last night my Mom and I had a painting party. And boy was it a party! The fumes of Primer mixed with shut doors and little air movement caused me to get dizzy and feel sick. I even tripped off a ladder. Definitely not my best moment! I wish I could blame it on the alcohol but no it was the paint. I spent the rest of the evening trying to make the room stop spinning. This was too much of a reminder of my 21st birthday. I'm sad to think of the brain-cells killed last night.
Now all summer I painted. I painted the dining room, kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and hall. But the difference was the whole house was opened. Now that we're living there I decided to shut the room off... big mistake! Lesson learned.
My eating is still on track. I am going strong on Level 2 of the 30DS. Walking push-ups aren't nearly as hard (to me) as regular push-ups. But those military presses with kicks are no joke! Have I told you yet that I'm doing this Challenge with 8 lb weights? Yep, I am. It's one of my goals and I am rocking it!
Love to all!
