My head is pounding right now. I just got done working out, and most times (if I've really pushed myself) I end up with a terrible headache from getting my heart rate up so high. I know that's the sign of not being so smart, but on the other hand if I don't push myself hard enough, then I lose motivation and quit. Being I'm not losing a single ounce, who knows which is worse. *sigh* Tonight I did Plyometrics, which is hell. It's pretty much an hour straight of nothing but squats and jumping. I love it though at the same time because you're sweating like a freaking pig and you feel like you've run a marathon when you're done.

Our date night last night was awesome!!!! My husband is so great. We couldn't decide what do-- boring old movie & dinner? ice skating? mini golf?-- so Tom just told me to be ready in 15 minutes and we would be leaving. He wouldn't tell me where we were going until we were almost there (all he would tell me was that it was in Orange County and had an "A" in the name. Not so helpful.), but he took me to see Mamma Mia. I didn't really know what to expect because even though it's been out for years and I knew it was based on the ABBA songs, I didn't know any more than that. I guess that's why I had had no desire to see it before now. But good gracious how I've been missing out!! It was SO freaking great. It was so much fun!! Besides having a cool story line and being hilarious, then end was almost like a cool concert with all the songs and dancing (even the audience!), and I didn't want to leave. :) I told Big Hunk we have to see it again! Of course they are only in town until this Sunday so that's not likely, but hopefully another time. But, we are going there next week to see Go Diego Go Live. ;) Not sure how happy I am about that, but the kids will love it. So anyway, it was such a great night! It is so hard being away from my kids though, and I need to get used to it. I guess maybe because it's been so long since we've left them, but I was trying to figure out last night how in the world we'll be gone in November for 5 days! I was reassured though reading my book A Wife After God's Own Heart (looove that woman!) and being reminded how important this time is for us.

Well, it's 10:30pm and I need to get to bed. I had planned on taking a shower after working out but I'm off my workout high and am content going to bed stinky. ;)


  1. Speaking of those 5 days away you mentioned, my SIL and BIL just got back from 7 days in Hawaii and LOVED it. BIL is Hawaiian, so they visited his old stomping grounds and what not. She said they were practically on the verge of divorcing before they left, but upon returning they felt extremely refreshed in their marriage. *shrugs*

  2. Oh I'm jealous! I've been wanting to see that for years!

    Hey, just to remind you, muscle weighs more than fat, so I'm sure you're just putting on muscle, that's why you don't feel like you're losing weight. Anyway, way to go! I could never work out like that!

    I have that same book, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet... you've inspired me, maybe during my marathon breastfeeding sessions I'll find the time!



Hey you! I welcome all comments and love to hear from you! No one likes to talk to themselves. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
