I truly hate Denise Austin. I do. I've hated her for a while. She's so freaking perky at times when I want to give her shaken-aerobics-instructor-sydrome. But, this past week I've been trying to work-out more. My big plan is 90 minutes of video work-outs, 90 minutes of walking (both of those figures are per week) and controling portions and snacking. I think I've done pretty well so far. I need to work on the portions and snacking. That was my definate downfall this week. Anyway, back to me and Denise. I did the routine that she tapes for Lifetime (I am Tivo-ing a bunch of different ones, as well as using exercise TV to supplement). It wasn't too bad... felt pretty good about it, but MAN am I sore now. Luckily, it's the weekend and I have a bit of time to repair. We'll see if I can compete with my bitter foe.
In other news...
we have a visitor from Mrs. Dodson's class, TB. That's short for "teddy bear" -- I have a few pictures I hope to post soon. He gets to stay ALL WEEK (lucky us) and Conner is sure enjoying his visit. In the end we get to write a journal entry for all off TB's adventures.
Oh, and we cut-down the bottle brush tree that we have in the back. It's SO pretty with the pink bottle brushes, but they get EVERYWHERE and it's rubbing against our fence. Just another little adventure for Mr. TB to enjoy.
