Last night Andy came to pick up the mobility scooter. The hallway looks open and happy! Yippie!! It was frustrating because it ended up being a catch all for things and even if I cleaned our place from top to bottom it still looked cluttered because of the scooter.

We had pasta for dinner with caesar salad and garlic bread. Tasty stuff! Danielle made the sauce and technically I don't like spaghetti (noodles) but I can eat other shapes. I did not do any exercise. Just watched American Idol

Tonight I am going to Personal Training with Grace (Come hell or high water, Shelley!) She was concerned about me and I thought she was upset since I am a slackalacker but all is well. If I think I am going to reach ANY of my goals I better get the show on the road. Going to the gym once a week is just not enough! I need to look at the schedules again and find a Zumba or Bellydancing class that I can go to on a regular basis plus continue to do the at home stuff and PT once a week. That should work. MUST implement. I am great at coming up with ideas but I am a little weak on follow through if you haven't noticed ;-) Hope you guys are having a good week. Until next time...


  1. Congrats to the winners and what a great list of snacks! Glad you are getting to the gym - I will be thinking of you tonight! I think the main key to exercise is to find something you enjoy doing, be it Zumba or whatever...that will keep you going back.

  2. Congrats winners. String cheese is in the air today. Look at Exquisite Christines food for yesterday - she had a snack of microwaved string cheese topped with marinara - looks yummy!

    I agree with Shelley. Find what you love and you won't be able to stay away from the gym!

    I left you a thank you on my blog today, come take a look.

  3. I agree with Shelly the key is to find something you enjoy. Once you do you will find yourself looking forward to your workouts.

  4. Great snack list, Katie. The jerkey is good, both turkey and beef! High protein, almost no carbs or fat, and takes a while to chew! Hope the gym workout was good and fun!

  5. The microwaved string cheese stopped me in my tracks, too. Interesting idea! The list looks great. Enjoy your workouts!

  6. Thanks for sharing what everyone came up with in the snack department. I'm always searching!!

    Congrats to the winners!!

  7. Nice list & congrats to the winners!
    So ... how many of us are chomping at the bit to try microwaving their string cheese? I currently have two varieties in my fridge ... hmmmm ...

  8. :D thank you... email sent :D

  9. great list. I don't have any string cheese...wishing I did...

  10. "slackalacker" ... that's funny.

    Nice snack list and alphabetically yet!
    I have never heard of microwaved string cheese either. Yum.

    I'm weak on the follow-thru too.

    YOU have a great week, Katie!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
