Let me catch you up....

Life has been so crazy busy the past few weeks. I'll try and catch you up on what is going on in my not-so-exciting life.

  • Spent 2 days in Vegas for work. Blah
  • Buddy is now officially a 4th grader

  • Daughter is now officially a senior (holy crap!)

  • I'm officially "sporty" - I mean 40 (holy crap x a million)

  • Received new and improved Roomba - thanks!

  • Sporting a new Trailblazer
  • Buddy will be going to the new school (read: public) in the fall

  • Daughter's fashion show was HIlarious.... a total bust. Bless her little heart. I only have one photo to show... she was mortified/I was entertained.
  • Buddy lost his boogie board (in the ocean) at his beach party and I suddenly became a lifeguard. I went running into the ocean in my clothes to rescue my baby! He's a swimmer but not a strong swimmer and especially not in waves. Yes, I'm THAT mom

  • Walking partner is on vacation.... so am I from exercise : ) I've been bad!!!

  • I'm caught in the vicious cycle. I know I'll have more energy if I exercise but I'm too damn tired to exercise....

  • How cute is Duncan sleeping with Daughter? They were both sacked out - didn't even hear me take the picture.

That's it for now.

I can't think of a fun title....

It's going to be a very busy weekend and an even busier next week.

Tonight we will probably do our usual movie night to see Kung Fu Panda. This movie looks so incredibly cute.
Tomorrow -
Hair appointment cut and color and not a minute too soon. My roots are wanting to come out to play.
We also have Buddy's end of the season baseball party. I think it will be fun. It's not the usual pizza party but a picnic and baseball game (kids vs. parents).

Sunday -
Fashion Show - Daughter was asked to do this by our wedding photographer. It was all fine and dandy a month or two but now that it's here she's sooo not into it. It will be cute [insert teenage eye roll here].

Sometime this weekend I have to fit in laundry, grocery shopping, manicure, pedicure, clean and packing.... I have to go to Vegas Monday and Tuesday for work. So not looking forward to it but it's part of the ol' job.

Wednesday is Buddy's end of the school beach party.

Thursday is the last day of school. My friend and I are surprising our boys with a secret mom/son day trip. Taking the Amtrack to Santa Barbara for the day.

Friday I will be celebrating a milestone birthday.... and it's Friday the 13th I hope that doesn't mean anything. Thank goodness I'm not stupidstitious.

10,000 Steps

Many websites recommend we walk 10,000 steps a day for long term health and reduced chronic disease risk. 12,000 - 15,000 steps For successful, sustained weight loss.
And to build aerobic fitness make 3,000 or more of your daily steps fast.
So, yesterday I bought a pedometer. It's a great little tool that senses your body motion and counts your footsteps. I've heard that wearing a pedometer and recording your daily steps and distance is a great motivating tool. My walking partner and I have gotten a little bored with our daily walk. So we decided to add to it. We added another mile and two more inclines. Now, instead of walking at 5:00am we are starting at 4:45am. Who the heck am I? I'm a crazy walking woman!! Our walk is now 5 miles long with 5 good inclines.

When we finished our walk this morning I was already at over 9,900 steps. I love this little tool. As of right now (12:59pm) I'm at 11, 299 steps. (yes, I'm wearing it at work - yes, I know that's dorky).
Go get one. They are cheap under $20 and a good way to help keep you motivated.

I Hate Buying Milk!

Why Missy? Milk is so good for you?

Actually, I love milk but I hate seeing the expiration date.

It really makes you realize how fast time is flying by doesn't it? We are already half way through 2008! How did we get to June so quickly??

It hit me this weekend when I bought milk how quickly next week is creeping up and what that brings...

Let's just say - "Sporty" is the new Forty
