The past few days

This weekend went by WAY too fast! I can't even remember what we did Saturday, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with trying to teach Emma not to throw temper tantrums all day long. Sunday we headed to Griffin to have lunch with Mom & Bruce, and I headed over to a dear friends Grandmother's funeral. Then it was back home, BUT Matt and I did get to enjoy a movie together, Albeit it wasn't the BEST movie we'd ever seen. It was called Contagion. Now usually any movie that has Matt Damon in it is good to me..but really I think he is a much better "action" actor.
I had another movie I had rented from blockbuster express called Bridesmaids, that I tried watched after Matt went to bed. BOORRRINGG.
Better luck next time. Maybe I'll let the handsome husband pick the movies. (kidding)
So, today was back to normal routine, wake up play with Emma, put her down for a nap, get ready for work while she naps, and off to work.
I've been trying really hard to work out, but it seems like ever since Thanksgiving I haven't gotten back in the groove yet. The gym is here at work, so unless I'm working I don't go. Not that we don't have an elliptical at home I can use..I just prefer the gym atmosphere. It makes me workout harder.
SO, hopefully this week I will work all 5 days, and work OUT all 5 days.
I have GOT to do it. I want to feel better, so even when I don't feel like it, I've even gone up there and just done a 20 minute workout just so I can say I did something.

I'm working on working out.
I just have this TERRIBLE problem with food. No, you cant really call what I eat food i's junk. I eat a LOT of it.
I'm hoping some sort of motivation about cutting calories will come soon..I wish I had the discipline to write down what I eat every day, I hear that's the best way, because there are some things you don't want to write down. Like say, i would like to write down that I ate 2 packs of coffee cakes today...along with an ice cream sandwich, 2 cokes, a pack of peanut butter crackers, a hostess get the picture..and you can obviously see that this is a problem. I mean, I can go to the gym 5 days a week, but if I keep eating like's not going to make a difference in the world.
I MUST go to the grocery store soon and buy some things that are good for me.
Well, as far as everything else, Emma and I have both been sick since the Thursday after New years, plus she had her shots.
We both have runny noses, which seems to be my only symptom anymore...but it just wont stop! I hear there's a cold going around that has been lasting for a month, so maybe were both almost over it (I pray).
So, even though it MAY not sound like it, today has been a petty good day, and only a Little over 2 hours until I get to go home! I hope I can go right to bed when I get there! I like being asleep by 11:30. Sometimes I get on pinterest and start pinning away and next thing I know it's 1 or 2am..
But I'm gonna stop that! haha
So, only 4 more days until the weekend again. We "should" have both Matt's kids this coming weekend. Well, sure we will have Harrison, but I don't think Madison enjoys coming over too much anymore. She's at the "teenager" stage where they are in their own little world, and the only thing that matters is them. It'll be nice when she gets a little older and appreciates family time like I do :)
I love nothing more than spending time with my family. I am so blessed to have everyone I have. Even though I live an hour 1/2 away, I still try to go visit as much as possible. I miss my friends too though, although I don't have NEAR as many as I used to, because you have to actually spend TIME with friends to keep them. I try though. It's really hard to get to town and see Mom, and maybe on occasion I can fit ONE friend in, but usually I get up too late to fit anyone in. I have invited people to my house, a few have came, but I realize we do live very far away, so I try to not take it personal :)
One day Matt says we can move to a "medium" ground between his kids and my family..I imagine by then I wont have many friends left in town, lol, but that will just give me more time with my family right!
OK, well, that sounded like a dreadful blog, but just saying what I feel like it today. I promise the next blog will be a happier one :)
