It's Friday It's Friday...(but really that means nothing to me!)

Love my catchy title (not!) I'm not very creative this morning... So I am down a bit today, 245 so I think if this week ends (on tues) with me being the same as last weeks WI, I'll be doing good. That would still be a 6lb weight loss in 2 weeks which is good!

I have my appt for personal trainer set up for Tuesday, I am quite excited! I've worked out in gyms on and off for many years, but it will be nice to have a good starter program to follow. I love working out with weights, and some day, in like 70lbs, I'd like to have a really strong, somewhat muscly body. My goal is to be fit fit fit (the proverbial 'best shape of my life') by the time I'm 40, which is in 5.5 years. I know that seems like a long time, but it will take at least this year to get down to my goal weight, and then time to tweek things. And ultimately I'd still love to run a marathon. It was my goal to do it for my 35th b-day, which is in June but I don't think that will happen this year..but I'm sure I could do something by then (10km, 20km ect).

So my exciting day includes going to the gym this morning, attempting to tidy this messy TV/toy room, and maybe hit walmart this afternoon. I have arranged a babysitter for tomorrow afternoon. This rotation of my hubbys schedule (8 working 4 off) is dragging, and I need a break. So I plan to go have a good work out then go see P.S. I Love You, by myself. I haven't gone to see a movie by myself since way long ago after I broke up with a boyfriend and I wanted to prove my independence and went to a movie by myself (weird I know). I've put it out there to my 2 'friends' here, but both are busy Mom's and it is a Sat. so I am not counting on it, and would be quite happy going on my own. Personal time for me these days is at a bare minimum.

Potty training is not going worth a crap. I hate it. I'll leave it at that.

There is something wrong with potty training and crap being used in the same sentence - LMAO - I know I'm a dork but that just made me laugh!

Way to go on the trainer........I don't know about you but when I was younger I just wanted to be thin - okay skinny - now i want to be athletic and healthy........not overweight but not bone thin like I used to think. Somewhere I fell in love with the idea that i could have curves AND be healthy!

PS - I heard PS I Love You was a great movie - have fun!

Sounds like you are still doing awesome! My husband used to travel a lot too and I always took time for myself... otherwise he might have come home to find me locked in my room with the kids running amuck outside! Wish I lived near you... I'd go to the movie with ya!
