Back to school!

Well, after having the kids home for a 4-day weekend, I thought going back to school this morning would be easy and non-eventful, but as usual I was wrong.

My son, as usual, leaves his homework to the last minute...with that said, I caught him finishing up spelling homework this morning...not good for him!! Then when I went to print the report he finished last night at 9pm, my printer was out of ink!! Luckily, for him, my old printer still had ink so I had to connect that and print out his report.  Do you have any idea how quickly one's blood pressure will go up in this situation?  I had to punish him, yet again, he knew that I wanted him to finish ALL homework on Friday....he was home all day! I asked him if it was all finished & he answered yes...now come Sunday and "oops, I forgot I had to do this report"; come Tuesday morning & "oops, I forgot I had this spelling to do".....really?!?  Impossible that my 12 yr old could have such bad memory...and if he does, I blame his previous obsessive playing time on the XBOX game Call of Duty!! So, again, I have to remind him why all these video games have been taken away.
When my A-B student comes back, then he will get his games back for an hour a day!  I know, I am definitely to blame for not enforcing time limits on video games to begin with, but I'm trying really, really hard to fix things now, even though it has been extremely difficult!!

So......1st day back to school after their small break and they were 10 minutes late....isn't that wonderful!

Now, I'm sitting here with a headache, have lots to do but no motivation to do anything!  On a positive note, I weighed myself and lost 1.3 lbs so I am happy.  Now to work on my grocery list for tomorrow, and attempt to clean out both my son's and daughter's rooms, then to work on my room!  Doing my best to turn my home into a clutter free house......I will need a lot of luck with that one!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.



So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…
