Slacker

I don't like being a slacker, but that's what I've been doing lately...at everything it seems.  I've slacked at blogging, slacked at getting started fundraising for Great Strides, slacked at cooking dinner, slacked at working out, slacked at keeping the house clean.  The only thing I haven't slacked at is my Cayston treatments...I'm currently in week 3.

I have lost my motivation to work out...the only thing keeping me at the gym is my scheduled personal training sessions.  I've gone back in to my bad snacking habits...and of course, it isn't healthy snacking! I've put on a few of the pounds I had lost which makes me more frustrated, then I slack off even more... its a vicious cycle.  I did better when I could wake up and go straight to the gym before doing anything else...I'd have energy for the day and it gave me motivation not to snack, and if I did snack, at least I had burned some extra calories that morning.  But, unfortunately I work in the mornings now and just don't have motivation to hit the gym in the afternoon.

This has turned into a depressing blog - sorry!  I have big plans to create a healthy menu for dinners (and plan them in advance), clean out my panty of all the junk thats holding me back (mostly Sour Patch Kids and Reese's Cups), and get my butt back in the gym.  

Lent is starting this week and thats just the motivation I need.  I can't cheat on God!! I'm not just giving up Sour Patch Kids this year, I'm giving up all my sweet tooth cravings.  Even as I type that I'm freaking out - I've become dependent on my junk!!  

So wish me luck as I get back on track!!  I want to run some more 5Ks in the future so I need to start preparing!

  1. Just remember-slacking happens! All of us cannot be perfect at everything. One thing that I have noticed with myself, if I start to well with one thing-I get more motivation to excel in other things. Also-if the one thing that you aren't slacking in is your treatments, than you should not be so hard on yourself!

  2. So Maria and I have been addicted to Sour Patch Kids!!! When I buy another bag I think of your addiction. I hope you get back on track soon cyster! Slacking is human nature its just how long we let it happen for that is the key.

    I hope you are feeling well :)

    I am going to try and message you through this google/blogger thing. I have a question for you :)

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
