MUMs the word

It is just wrong to be at work today. The weather is absolutely beautiful, there is a slight breeze, and the sky is clear blue. Just makes working indoors very hard.

Upside after today I am on vacation again for a week!




Going to plant some mums, they are most beautiful to look at this time of year. And I want to capture some of that beauty in my back yard.



The red and orange ones are my favorites. My sister keeps telling me I am a fall color person. Likes to tease that is what I have decorated my house in also. I fear she is correct. But how could one not just LOVE the warm feeling fall colors give off? I mean really.

Guess I should get some work done so I can scoot out of here this afternoon with a clear conscious.

Holy cow that is a lot of food!!!

Sooooo Hi.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have subjected myself to a Boot Camp. Which is doing exactly as promised......................kicking my jiggly butt into shape. But what I am not sure if I have ever mentioned is that I have a weirdly high metabolism. So when every I am doing any activity I have to increase my caloric intake. Now I am not complaining (well actually I am) but I think 3,000 calories is a bit much.

Have you EVER tried eating 3,000 calories of nutritious food? Oh, and NOT feel like you are going to explode. The closest I got to that was 2,278. And that was only because we went to Olive Garden for Dinner and I had the Smoked Mozzarella Fonduta. That WAS SOOO GOOD.

My average day is usually 1,600 to 2,000 calories. My instructors are not very happy but going to the gym 3 times a week, 1 night a week of volley ball, mowing the yard and doing other yard work, and cleaning the entire house every weekend tends to get in the way of eating. Winter time will be different. That is when we eat a lot of our favorite "heavy" foods.


BOO it is time to go get some more food for the trough!
