Day 3 and still going strong

Typically when I participate in a challenge it is around the 3rd or 4th day that things usually start to go downhill for me. I am determined to change that with this challenge!

Several of my goals have been quite easy to keep on track with. And some of them are a little more difficult just because I seem to have a hard time finding time in my day to workout. It was icky and cold out today, so no walk with the little ones. I need to find some sort of activity to do during the morning with the two small ones. Something indoors where I don't have to spend a lot (or any!) money. So I am still working on that.

Today went really smooth to start with. Things always seem to fall apart once I pick my oldest up from the bus stop. It's always a difficult process to make dinner. The 2 year old insists on helping me in kitchen...helping is not necessarily the right word for what she does! Anyway, tonight was no exception. I made Deep Dish Crescent Pizza Casserole that Roni spoke so highly of. I subbed tomatoes for the mushrooms and I used turkey sausage. It was to die for! Oh I loved it! I don't usually like zucchini...ok, so I pretty much hate it. Except zucchini bread, but that's a whole other topic. Anyway, it turned out so yummy! The only person that didn't like it was the 2 year old, but she was really tired and when she gets tired she doesn't eat anything. Neika even liked it! Mine ended up browner on top, but it was delish. It will definitely go on my list of recipes to rotate through! I am loving all the new, healthy recipes I am getting from fellow bloggers and tweeties.

I plan on working out tonight...possibly the 30 day shred once Sean is in bed. Either that or the EA Active. The shoe is still missing so I have to make due with the ones that are too big.

Oh, and TOM has definitely arrived...trumpets blaring and banners waving arrived. Bummer. I guess it's not all that bad, but when it's been gone for 11 months it kinda sucks when it comes back! So I assume that the uptick this morning had to do with that. My size "16" jeans (which are actually 18) from Old Navy wouldn't stay up even with a belt. I was getting so annoyed with them. My mom and sister are both losing weight, they are about 10 pounds ahead of me (their in the 180s already, and both are taller than me). So my mom gave me 2 pairs of jeans. A real size 16 and a size 14. The 16 are perfect and the 14's are only a little snug.

Well, I'm off to go workout...maybe I can get it in before I Sean goes to bed which will give me more time to knit later! I updated yesterdays numbers in my Challenge tab for the 33 Day Challenge.


  1. YAY! PROUD OF YOU! I totally detest TOM ugggggh. It's so strange that once you start losing when TOM comes back with a vengence.

  2. Thanks! TOM totally sucks and I was hoping it would stay away longer since I'm nursing. No such luck. Oh well...I am pushing through anyway! Got my workout done and I'm feeling great!
