Slimmer This Summer - Week 4 Results

Here are my stats for the Challenge:

Weight: I stayed the same this week (some competitor huh?)
Water Consumption: I failed at water this week.
Activities: I did not try a new class. I did not get 10K per day.

How was your weekend? Hope you all had a good one! It was nice to have a long weekend. The highlight of my weekend was meeting Sally who is Dave's best friends wife. It has been 5 years that Dave and I have been together and I have known Ed but never got to meet his wife because she was a nurse and had the opposite hours I do. It was like meeting an old friend! She was such a pleasure to talk to! She reads my blog *waving hello* and knew that I wanted to go swimming come hell or high water and so she invited us to swim at the neighbors they are house sitting for. I was in there for like two hours! I swam some laps but mostly just jumped around and played.

I had been wanting to make some hummus and decided to finally try it. I used my Magic Bullet blender and added garlic and Italian dressing and it was delish! Dave liked it too so win-win.

My brother, Bob, is coming to visit with his family this week. He will be flying in tomorrow night and his wife, Mia and son, Mike will be coming on Thursday. They will also be bringing their dogs, Spike and Roxie. They are Biewer Yorkshire Terriers. Here is a picture of Spike when he was a baby.

I'm looking forward to seeing my SIL and nephew. My brother, not so much... I am a little miffed at him still.  He is the Golden Boy in my mother's eyes so I could never tell her that I reminded him about her birthday.  I will behave myself and act as if everything is peachy but I still think he is a shmuck. Until next time...

P.S. Hyla made it to Onderland! Go tell her congrats!


  1. That is one cute pup! Despite his shmuckness, I hope you have a good visit with your brother. ;)

    Your hummus sounds good. I've just started buying it; guess I could give making it a try. Or just keep buying it, lol!

    Drink your water today!

  2. Family is hard. That doggy is adorable though!

  3. Hopefully this week will register a loss. We all need to recommit to our goals sometimes and be a "loser" again.

  4. I've been wanting to try my hand at hummus, too! Glad it came out well for you :) Yayyy for swimming! I really need to get some of that into my summer.

  5. Ooooh! I'll have to try making hummus in my Magic Bullet. I agree, brothers are schmucks ... I just ignore the stuff he does to aggravate me and try my best to enjoy his company. It usually goes well that way.

    Hey, at least you'll be able to get in lots of exercising playing with your nephew and the dogs. :) Hope you have a great visit!!

  6. I have never made home made hummus, but I like it so much it is worth a try. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Family dynamics can be tough. Hope their stay with you is void of drama.

    Here's to a better week with the STS!

  7. Yeah, I stayed the same for a long while. Keep at it.


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