September's Here!

Hmmm interesting numbers. I thought I ate more calories then that but then again, I was feeling anxious so that does affect my hunger.

Thanks ladies for your comments on the training. I just need to get out and walk that is for sure. I just thought Riley might have some pointers since he is a runner. I may try to run a little of it. In fact, I need to check with Bella to see if she still plans on doing the race. Either way, I am going to do it. I am doing it for ME!

The appt. went really well with the Home Instead rep. Her name is Jennifer.  We are thinking that we could start at 5 days per week and then scale back if need be. My mom liked the idea and really liked Jennifer. I ended up hugging her because I was just so pleased to know that there is help out there. I did call my brother and left him a voicemail. He has not responded to my email but like I said, I am not surprised. I wanted him to look at the materials and so forth so we can all be on the same page. He will be here tomorrow night. In fact, I am going to have him do mom's pill drill for her so he can see what that is like. I don't plan on seeing him over the weekend but we will see. It gives me an opportunity to take a little respite from her. Today I am taking her to the doctors so I am leaving work early to do so. We will go for an early dinner at the Fish Market and then I will head home.

I am trying to figure out how to attach my DVD player and Wii to the new TV and I have not had the time to figure it out. I got a great deal at Target the other day on the Gold's Gym Cardio Workout. It was $10.99. I really want to try it but I need to be able to hook it up first so that is my plan tonight. Until next time...


  1. Good for you for getting help for your Mom. What a relief that must be for both of you and that's awesome that she can stay at home, too. Awesome!

  2. Holy Crap! That was a good deal! And it looks like fun! I'll have to look for that one.

    Glad you'll get a minute to breathe. Your brother should take some responsibility when he's around at least. My mother is still carting herself to the cardiologist and won't let us take her. Whatever. The time is coming soon enough I guess. Older women are hard headed...hope I'm not going in that direction...oops. Too late! LOL

  3. I have that Wii game! It gives you a good workout, that's for sure!

    And I'm glad things are getting better with your mom. Stay strong, beautiful!

  4. Ooh! I love that you are starting out BIG and then scaling back. I usually wimp out and start out small and then increase. You're awesome for busting right out of the gate at a sprint! Go! Go!! GO!!!

  5. Wait - where is that teenage boy who hooked up your TV? Get him over there to give you a lesson in hooking - uh, stuff up. Not the other kind. He (probably) doesn't know about that. Yet. OK, I got way off track there...

  6. You're doing super! Keep it up.

  7. So glad things are going better with getting help for your Mom, and a bit of a break for you will help. I was having trouble getting on your blog for the last few glad when I tried today. Come check my blog for a Giveaway. Keep doing a great job, good luck with your new workout.hugs.


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