I am just so excited the Saints won! WOOT WOOT! Don't get me wrong, I adore Peyton and think he is a great guy, but I also believe the Saints and New Orleans needed a morale boost in a bad way. And did you see Drew Brees with his son after the game!? Priceless.

Ok, enough about football. =)

I forgot to weigh this morning. I can't get it in my head that I weigh in on Mondays now. Plus, my middle son has an earache and has been waking up every 3 hours crying out in pain. So we're up around the clock. Today I've been up since 3:45a.m. I couldn't sleep after his last wake up, so at 5 I got up and attempted my Jillian video.

Um, yeah. I couldn't do it!!! Granted, I was exhausted and it was on an empty stomach, but still. So I laid down on the couch and was going to try to sleep. Then I thought, "Dang it, I'm already awake and I'm not going to give up. I'll do my Leslie video." So I did. And it wasn't easy! Holy Moly how quickly my body deteriorates and loses strength when I stop working out for 1.5 weeks!

So anyway, I did my Leslie video and then took a shower (really hot-- my thyroid isn't quite back to normal yet) and then I was all wet and had drunk 24oz of water and didn't want to weigh. So I'll shoot for tomorrow.

I hope to be back a little later with "my news". ;-) Unfortunately, it's not nearly as fun as my sister-in-law Jen's news. She's having a baby!!!!!!!

CONGRATS, my good friend. I'm so happy for you!!!! =)


  1. Good dedication on sticking to the workout even with all those obstacles! It's so easy to talk yourself out of it, and I respect you for not caving. After reading your post, I've decided I'm going to hit 10,000 steps a day on the pedometer even if it means running up and down my stairs over and over late at night to get there!

  2. Great job finding a workout that you could do on an empty stomach and little rest; that's true dedication! Hope your son gets to feeling better quickly.

    PS- I agree about Drew Brees with his son... it was precious.

  3. I was just over at Jen's blog. That is very exciting news. My sister-in-law is pregnant with their fourth too.

    After watching the Packers lose to the Saints, I just wasn't interested in the game. I too know what you mean about your stomach getting in knots over the game. I was depressed for a few days over that one game. But I'm glad your team won. It's so good when you team wins.

    Good for you for getting in a work-out despite being tired and everything else that was going on. I bet you feel so good that you got it in.

  4. What, our Jen??? A bambino? Oh, so exciting!!! I'll have to scoot over there and see what's going on!

    Great job on the work out and I hope the little one feels better soon!
