Disappointing Weekend

Well, this weekend did not go as originally planned. First off, our trip to Tri-County Sports, in VA, did not happen. This weather has been so insane that our trip had to be rescheduled for next weekend. Virginia got hit with a bad rainstorm a few days before the tournament, so it was best to just move the trip. Now I'm hoping for 60-70 degree weather next week....I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

So, now that we are in town for the weekend, Triple A Arsenals get scheduled to play their opening day game for today. The day was beautiful, a bit chilly in the shade but when you sit under the sun it was great! We were home, so we played at Miller Stadium and we were happy....atleast I was! Game started at noon as scheduled, and then 30 minutes later, everything is ruined by the idiots that run our town's recreation department! We are told that the "proper paperwork" was not filed and therefore our kids were not authorized to play at the stadium. Now that was all total BS and I insist that its personal issues behind all this. I really hate when people with power use that power to fight personal battles....I mean, everything was filed and we should've been allowed to play, but NO! They would've called the cops to get us out if they had to, so we had no choice. I've never seen this happen anywhere, and it is so embarrassing for the town, I don't understand how this person didn't see how wrong he was! So now, after only 2 innings, we have to pack it up and go home, and our opposing team drove an hour for nothing....totally ruined the day for all of the kids who were playing!

Saddest part is that after complaining, all I got from the head of this department were excuses! I think WNY needs a new head for the Rec. Department!! There are no excuses when you kick out your own town's kids from playing on a field that wasn't being used.

Unfortunately, it was a short game, but I got my first few pics of the season.....then came back home to eat pizza from Pizza Hut....who can diet after that aggravation!

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…
