Letting the Cat Out of the Bag

Today was soccer game day for the week and our first game was at 8:30. Since I worked until 10:30 last night and was tired this morning I didn't get up to run and now I have to do it on my lunch hour. Fun!
Between the first and second game we went to breakfast and found a kitten. Of course we had to take her home! So now we are a proud cat family, I am way excited because I love cats!! And she is a cutie pie!

Friday Five - The Crazy Week

It's been a really busy week. We are back in full swing this week - soccer, soccer picture, school, school pictures, and a field trip, as well as me working late instead of early today.

1. I didn't get my long run in yesterday since I went on a full day field trip with mini me. I planned to do it today after I dropped the girls off, but got lazy an only did 2 miles.
2. I got my hairs done today, I've decided to just keep going lighter and let it grow. Not sure how long or light I'll go, but for now the plan is to get more blonde and see how long it will get.
3. Target is a time and money suck! I went in with a list of 9 items and didn't emerge until over an hour and $200 blown! I got lots of great stuff, but I have no idea how the heck I spent so much. Although, if I'm being honest it was a great time and my obsessive purchasing of large quantities of every flavor of GoGo Squeez Applesauce (and a new flat iron and razor blades) may have something to do with the cost. I love Target and would like to live there for a few days.
4. Chaperoning field trips (especially with gifted [aka opinionated as heck!] first and second graders) is exhausting! Any time I think I should go back and finish my teaching credential I need to remember these fun, but hard days. We went to an Oak Preserve and went on a great trail walk and had a scavenger hunt and performed scientific studies. By the end of the day I was filthy, sweaty, and spent. Mini me fell asleep on the 30 minute bus ride home, so I am pretty sure she shared my sentiment.
5. I love being a dance mom and meeting other dance moms, but I hope to never meet any crazy dance moms like the horrible women on "Dance Moms," or have a scary teacher like Abby!! I adore my trash tv (including "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and "Toddlers and Tiaras") but I want it to stay in the tv!!

I have kept the streak alive and am enjoying a bit of new muscle definition in my arms thanks to Jillian Michaels so I'm feeling good about my exercise efforts!!

Not sure why this didn't post until Saturday, but here it is nonetheless.

Weight(y) Matters

I have been trying really hard not to weigh myself very often. There are a few reasons - 1. I obsess about the numbers if I'm not careful, 2. I know logically that my weight isn't the most important measure of my health and fitness, and 3. I feel like I will be disappointed if I don't like the number I see, because of #1 and despite #2! This morning I felt the urge to weigh myself after I finished my Rodney Yee's Power Yoga DVD (what can I say, yoga makes me feel long and lean). And I was quite pleased with the number I saw. I had let my weight creep up to 138, which I was not pleased with, and this morning it was 131! This number thrills me, I know it isn't the be all end all, but it makes me feel like my fitness and food efforts are paying off. So it is a happy Sunday!
Even better, I have been writing this post in the iPhone app while waiting in line at Starbucks (trenta unsweetened green tea is my best friend!) and when I just got to the window it was FREE because the wait was so long. Double bonus, sitting long enough to write a blog post and free tea! Yay for today it rocks! Hope you are having a great Sunday too!
