Time with Dad

Holli's Dad did something he has NEVER done before. On Wednesday he picked her up from school, took her to dance class, took her to Mcdonald's to eat and play and the brought her home. He got her to class 20 minutes late and then one of the parents had to find him at the end of the class, but he did do it. He now has to do it again and get it right (lol) , but Holli was oblivious and all she knows is that her Dad spent timw with her. She needed it. She had been crying for him, she had friends that had told her she did not have a Dad and so she got to show her friends that yes the mystery man actually exist. She now has not said another word about him and we had been on a 20 times a day talking about him and going from crying to being mad at him. She had given me her stuffed heart pillow he had bought her because she said I loved her. Hopefully this is something he will continue.

On Friday our church Hebron community Church had a health fair and movie on the lawn. I got a wonderful 20 minute massagem but my blood pressure and the diabetes test were in the "warning" zone. I am going to follow up with my doctor. I had jsut eaten dinner 20 minutes before the test so that might have been why I tested 142 on the diabetes test. I have always tested around 92 with the fasting test so this is something I really plan to look into. I do not want diabetes. The best part is Kim,Declan and Bella joined us at the church.

Sunday we did a bad thing. Holli had a birthday party on Sunday that ran over into cheerleading practice. I skipped cheerleading with another Mom and we just sat and visit. It was nice. I did make Holli practice the cheer yesterday and today. So my concious is a little at ease.

Weight loss is fine 1 pound down which is great being that I have had no time to work out. Holli's activites and looking for a new place has really gotten my schedule off. I have narrowed my search down to 2 apartments and the duplex. So I need to compare and decide.

Well that's about it.

Apartment Searching

I am looking for a new place to live for various reasons and we went to look at different apartments. So we go to one apartment complex

We went and looked at apartments this weekend. So we are talking to the leasing consultant and the woman goes. Why are you moving? I tell her I am looking for something nicer, bigger. Holli pops in and says very seriously. We need 2 bathrooms. We have 1 now and we NEED 2.

The leasing consultant could not talk for a minute or so.

We then go look at the apartments. Holli keeps trying to give me the small bedroom so the leasing consultant goes. We do have a roommate plan and the rooms are the same size. Let's go look at that one. Holli walks in and inspects the place and goes this is nice Mommy which room do you want.
The leasing consultant now insists that we live there so she can talk to my child.

I think Holli and I need to just part company now. She gets her on place and I get mine. :)

Weigh in today was not bad. I did not lose or gain. I am happy because I basically ate crap all weekend. Now time to get back on track.

Monday Weigh In

I am down 2 more pounds. Woo Hoo

Tonight I am rearranging the living room and putting the eppilitcal machine in there.
I will then have no excuse to not make my Sun/Tues/Thurs workout. I am trying to get in some shape so I can take the Tons of Fun class at Rosemeade this summer.
I don't want to pass out the first day of class because I can't do 30 minutes of cardio

Holli's Spring School Picture

Who would have thought a 5 yr old could look this cute and to think I almost did not buy them.
I had bought picture of Holli in the fall. She looked like my cute little diva. Her daycare has everyone take a picture even if you are not going to buy them. So we gussied her up and I figured I would buy at least 1 sheet of pics if they turned out okay. Well I am trying to manage my funds so I went inot the daycare on prepared to not look at them. The director, (THANK you Miss Diane) insisted that I least look at them. She said she had seen them and Holli looked beautiful. I am thinking what the heck why not. And viola this is her picture


I am so glad I looked and bought. My beautiful little girl is growing up

Losing Weight

So I decided 2 weeks ago I really needed to lose weight. I hate my belly, it drives me crazy. So I did not do any formal meal planning. I decided I would just workout 3 days a week. So far so good. I lost 4 lbs. Tomorrow is another weigh in. My problem now is that I go to the apartment gym to workout while Holli is still at daycare. I went ast Tuesday and the room was full. Ha we have 4 cardi machines and a weight station. So I am thinking I need to rearrange the living room and bring the eppilitcal machine into the living room that way no excuse because the room was full. I can still coem home and get a workout in before I pick up Holli. I am leaving her at daycare later so she can play and get some of the running out of her system. She is hating it because she does not get to run wild outside with the other apartment kids.
