Day two also a success!

I made it up again this morning to workout!! And it was hard, it was freezing in our house and I just wanted to crawl even deeper under the covers but I didn't. I got up and got going!! Woo-hoo for me! I guess I got warm by getting my blood pumping.

It got down in the mid thirites last night so it was freaking cold in our house. We turned the heater off.....hello! it's the end of April, it's not supposed to be cold. We were even under a frost advisory last night but at least all I have planted in my garden is onions. I don't think the frost would hurt the onions. Now a freeze that's a different story but a frost should be ok.

And in other exciting news.....I'm getting a haircut tomorrow!!! The first time I've had my hair cut since October. It's long. And shapeless. And long. I don't mind the length in the back it's the stupid bangs past my chin that I can't stand.

This is me in February...

This is me now....

So you can see how much it's grown in a few months. And embarassingly enough I believe I have the same shirt on. LOL I guess I need to go shopping.

I did it!

I actually got up 30 minutes early this morning and worked out!! First time EVER! And it wasn't that hard, really. Of course the fact that I am agonizing about something at work and not sleeping well might have helped. But when I worry about stuff and cant' sleep I usually manage to fall in to a deep sleep about 10 minutes before the alarm goes off.

Anyway, I'm excited about the fact that I actually got up and exercised voluntarily. On my own. Go me.

Trying again

Well, I posted a while back about trying to go a week without spending any unnecessary money. I did great that week and ok the next but completely went off the deep end the weeks after that. Any my bank account shows it. So, I'm trying again. Starting tomorrow I'm going this next week without spending any money. Except essentials of course. And no, stopping at the golden arches is not an essential no matter how hungry I am LOL. My bowl of cereal at home will work just fine, thank you.

I'm also trying to get back on my workout routine. I did great then slowed down then quit all together. Huh, that's the story of my life on most things. But I just did a workout and have changed my alarm in the morning so I can get up and do it first thing. We'll see how that goes. I hate with the intensity of a thousand suns getting up early. And early to me is before.....oh, say....9 LOL That doesn't work out most days as I have to be at work at 9. But on the weekends oh how I love to sleep in! And thank God I was blessed with kids that also love to sleep in. Also a husband that gets up "early" and lets me sleep in on Saturday.

I really do love him. Sometimes he drives me up the wall but listening to someone I know talk to her husband on the phone the other day just made me appreciate my hubby even more. Her husband is an arrogant jerk and I really can't stand him.

Anyway, wish me luck on my money purging or fasting I guess you could call it. It's a cleanse for money instead of food.

Perfect day

Today was a perfect day. We spent time together as a family outside. Not doing much of anything just being together. We did move the pile of junk to a better spot in the yard so you can't see it from the road. We all helped pile stuff on the trailer so it could be moved. Then when it was time to unload the trailer, brother says Well, I'll be in the house and off he went!! LOL He stayed inside for about 15 minutes while me and dh unloaded the trailer. And of course, by saying that dh and I did it, I really mean that dh did 90% of the work and I did 10%. While we worked sister laid on the end of the trailer and soaked up the sun.

Speaking of sun, I am a true redneck now after the sunburn I got today.LOL

But the point is that it was so nice to be together today and to be outside in the fresh air. It was a little windy but without the wind it would have been way too hot.

Now we are inside since the sun went down and we are spending some quality family time watching "Tommy Boy". I love that movie..........What'd you do???? Ah.... that never gets old.
