I may never walk again.

168 squats/lunges in 25 minutes.  Holy cow, I could barely make it back to my office.

The trainer is part of this wellness program we are doing at work.  It cost me $50 and I got an initial 1 hour assessment.  5 -  1/2 hour 1:1 training sessions and 2 - 1/2 final check-ins and assessments.  The two women are registered dietitians and personal trainers.  Mine is a 26 year old triathelete, who is wonderful, even if she makes me cry.   She helped me come up with a great eating and exercising plan.   I am not training for anything other than being able to breathe in my pants:)

Will it be me?

B wants me to be the person to download the 10,000,000,000 mac App.   He is checking it when he gets up and when he gets home. I am not holding out hope since I don't think I can stay up all night and watch the numbers turn.  Seriously what would I do with $10,000 in itunes gift cards.

I am not looking forward to tomorrow.  I have my 8 week check in with my trainer and I really don't want to weigh in.  I had been doing so great right up until this past weekend.  Nachos, beer, chips ahoy and a chocolate chip muffin.  I am going to bed hungry and I am not going to eat until after I weigh in.

Okay that is a lie.  I know I am going to eat breakfast.

BTW - My trainer wants to be Jillian's replacement on Biggest Loser and tonight she tried to prove she could do it.  My arms were noodles and I thought I wouldn't be able to drive home.

Write this on the calendar.

I sat on the couch today and watched 3 movies.  Yes three whole movies, with only minor interruptions. Okay I can't really say I watched them.  I, more like, listened to them while I worked on a prayer shawl, for one of my co-workers and did a little yearbook. Of course I did empty the dishwasher, let the dogs out four times and ironed Z's clothes for their orchestra performance tonight.  But still, my butt was on the couch for approximately 5 4, 3.5 hours in one sitting.

Really I did.  By the way, anyone have any earplugs.

So far so good.

Third quarter and we are ahead.  Yeah PACKERS!

The snow can go at anytime.  Tonight EB and I went to his work holiday party.  We were letting the kids stay home alone for the first time after dark.  I didn't want to stay late, so we took two cars.  Well there is so much friggin snow, there were no places to park and I ended up coming home, without dinner.  EB stayed.  I do have to complain about the Embassy Suites, yes I put their name out there.  If you book a  party with 400 people you should at least have parking for 200 cars.  We drove around the parking lot 6 times and then stopped to ask where we could park.  They said, "Sorry this is all the parking we have."  Really, that is unacceptable.   Find a parking lot, use your empty shuttle and take people back and forth.  Seriously you need to have a plan.  Plus I bought a dress, new shoes, hose and had good hair, dang it.

Okay, I am done now.  Back to football game.  Aaron Rodgers, you rock!

Again a repeat

Seriously this making me cranky.  Thankfully Biggest Loser is on.  Amy, football on Tuesday would have been great if it had been someone other than the Vikings.  Oh pooo.

Verizon is coming out with the iPhone and the EB can't wait.

Moved up to 8 pound weights for my upper body class.  Should be fun driving tomorrow.    I am going to need to go shopping soon:)

Did you know that you can waste an enormous amount of time on apps for the MAC.  I am going to be a great pilot one day.  I can land 39 planes, on 3 runways, in the snow in about 5 minutes.

How is that for a useless post.

I am ticked off!

Glee was a re-run again!

That is all I have to say about that.

I am not ready for the talk.

The Y is right next to our Vet's office, so we pass by it often.

Tonight's conversation was unexpected.

G, "Mom, when is Ellie going to have her surgery so she can't have babies."
Me, " I am not sure."

G, "When can Ellie have puppies?"

Me, " She is old enough now, but she is fine because Toffee can't have puppies so she will be fine."  I meanwhile can see the path she is going down and I am not sure how we are going to get around it.

G, "Toffe can't have puppies, he is a boy."

Me, "I know, but a girl puppy can't have a puppy without a boy puppy.  Just like people."

G, "But how?"

Now I am thinking, I should have just stopped at soon.  Why didn't I just say soon.

G, "What about the other dogs in the neighborhood?  Can she have puppies with them? Can she just have a baby if she walks by them?"

I do not want to have this conversation..........

Me, " G, that is more than you need to know anymore than that right now.  I will tell you when you are 12."

G, "Okay"

Really that is it.  I could have just stopped at soon and she would have been fine!
