Hello everyone! It feels like forever since I have blogged…and I guess it has as it’s been exactly one week. Sorry about that, but I have had one extremely busy week. Crazy busy! But, like my title said, OH-SO-FUN!
The only part that wasn’t so much fun is that the exercise has still been non-existent. Kind of. But, and I say this with all honesty, I have not had time. And the part about that I dislike so much is that I cringe when my husband says that. (He tends to use the “no time” excuse quite often.) Aargh!
But really, at least for the last three days, I just simply haven’t had time. Let’s start with Tuesday…although, my dear readers, you probably don’t want to know the boring details, but I am going to share with you anyway. At least this will give you a glimpse into my life as of late!
Okay, back to Tuesday: I got up at 5 a.m. and was to work at the newspaper office by 6:30 a.m. I worked until 3 p.m. and then got in my car and drove to Morris, where I worked at a Weight Watchers meeting. I was there until 6:30 p.m. Then, I got in my car and drove home. When I got home around 7:30 p.m., I ate supper and then had to work on some projects for Wednesday. I crawled into bed around 11 p.m. Oh, I did spend some time visiting with my husband and son.
Let’s see, on Wednesday, my alarm went off at 3:45 a.m. – YES, THREE FORTY-FIVE! I was at work at Weight Watchers at 5 a.m. YES, FIVE O’CLOCK in the morning! It was our open house day and let me tell you, it was fantastic! We opened the doors at 7:30 a.m. and didn’t close them until 6:15 p.m. We had so much fun and it was crazy busy. Awesome. Simply awesome. I got home that day around 7:30 p.m. I then had some supper, talked with my husband and my son a little bit, talked to my mom and my sister on the phone and then worked on the computer a little bit. I was so shot that I crawled into bed shortly before 9:30 p.m. I think I may have been sleeping before my head hit the pillow. Maybe.
As for Thursday, my alarm went off at 5 a.m. and I was at the newspaper office shortly before 6:30 a.m. I worked there until 3:30 p.m. and then I headed to Glenwood to work a Weight Watchers meeting there. When I got done, which was at about 6:30 p.m., I headed over to visit my parents’ house since that’s the town they live in. I left their house around 8 p.m. and when I got home, I ate supper with my husband and son. It was SO NICE to actually sit down and have a meal with them. We chatted for a little while and then our neighbor came over for a just a bit and before I knew it, it was 9:30 p.m. I sat down on the couch to watch some Twins baseball with my husband and before I knew it, I was sound asleep.
So now it’s Friday and my alarm went off at 6:30 a.m. I am always up that early on Fridays because I have to update the newspaper’s website. I thought I better take some time to blog since I haven’t been on here for a week. BUT as soon as I am done, I have a date with a Jillian Michael’s exercise DVD. I was going to go for a run, but I have my 7th 5K of the season tomorrow morning and thought I better save my leg strength for the run!
For as much running around and working as I did this week, my eating was surprisingly pretty dang good. I did manage to sneak in a blizzard at the Dairy Queen and let me tell you, it tasted really, really good. My weight is still pretty good. I had to weigh in on Wednesday at WW (We have to turn in our weight to our territory manage and she happened to be at our open house, which was pretty cool. I was 141 right on the nose! And, I was okay with that.)
I did get in runs last Saturday and on Monday, so that made be happy. But since Monday, my exercise has been, like I said earlier, non-existent!Â Next week shouldn’t be quite so busy and I can get in some more exercising! Thank goodness. Believe it or not, I am really starting to miss it. Really, I am.

Alrighty, look out, Jillian, here I come. It’s time to get my butt kicked!
