Taking the week off - no not really....

Friday, July 29, 2011

I have been a quiet Sparker this week.....and it's been a great week....

The boys and I have been so busy - I haven't had time to sit at the computer and get my Spark on. I'm OK with that because I have been eating well and moving. Not moving in a "running" sense - but moving.....

Monday started with a sleep over and then the addition of 2 more to the brood for the day --- I cleaned house and did laundry and kept the masses fed and watered until it was baseball time...and right about that time it started POURING. The 9 yr. old got his game in - but the rain got heavier and the 12 yr. old was rained out....until Wed.

Tuesday we beached it ....it was a cloudy cooler day - but we have been itching for the beach so we just went for it - packed coolers with water and healthy food and sandwiches and off we went - we were there from 10 until 2 and we walked and played and ran and swam and had a blast. I even got to finish the book that I have been slaving on for a while now. Usually I can't put a book down - but this one - it was hard work getting through - and even with books I am not a quitter - so I finished it instead of walking away. Of course we were home in time for baseball.

Wednesday we didn't do much - lots of outside stuff - pool, playing in the yard and baseball..Two games for the boys - so we divided and conquered again...although I did make it to the 9 yr. olds game which started later...

Thursday - Beach again....warmer sunny day - I have the best tan going and my hair is working on that sun kissed look - it's pretty cool.....hides the gray really well. Long day - 9-3 at the beach - water was great with some surf that the kids and I boogie boarded on and just had fun. I did get some reading in and this book is much better. It's part of a vampire series (not twighlight - much more adult - lots of steam.....perfect for the beach). Packed those coolers with lots of healthy choices and water and sandwiches.....as I was snacking on my cucumbers and cherry tomatoes a woman walked by and saw me and said "Why didn't I think of that, instead of the snack bar."....kind of cool.....more baseball last night....

I haven't logged much food - and I haven't logged exercise....I don't know what to put in for exercise and can't be bothered with the food. I had to weigh for BL challenge yesterday and the scale is the same - so I'm doing good - and that's what matters.....

I do have a craving for ColdStone Creamery Oreo Filling Ice Cream....I have been thinking about it for weeks now --- since the last time we were near one and I didn't give in.....might need to see if I can get one soon.....

That's me in a nutshell this week - sorry I've been MIA...but there are only a few weeks of Summer left before I lose my playmates to school - gotta get the time in when I can.

    Sounds like an awesome week and this is what we wait all winter for! It's good to get out and enjoy the weather - we'll all be back to our normal sparking selves when the weather changes back to that "other" stuff :)
    ENJOY! (oh, and good job staying on track :)

    Sounds like a very fun and healthy week! You sound like me, eating cucumbers and grape tomatoes. I have had cucumbers galore from my garden for several weeks now, and my grape tomatoes have been coming in fast and furious for a few weeks. They are so yummy!

    Awesome. Nicely done. But you should share the name of the book. I always need a good fun book to read.

    Sounds like a fun week...even with the rain.
    Yes, I think ColdStone would be a great thing to cap off the week. Enjoy!!
