Daughter Jammed....

Daughter decided that she didn't want to finish the challenge. Just like that. "I just don't want to go swimming" she said, and like that it was over. She asked if I was disappointed. To be honest, I was a smidgen, just because it is my nature to finish things. BUT, she put in an awesome effort and did I think around 22 hours of exercise in the month of June. Before the challenge she had been doing none. Who can be disappointed in the grand scheme with that? Really, all in all, an awesome effort on her part. Plus it is one less person for me to compete with for a prize! ;-)

So, of course, I didn't end up doing anything either, except for eating points I don't have. I am going to have to work very hard today to be sure that this little fact doesn't send me into a tailspin.

Lurking reader Mizfit gets a gold star for funniest comment. BBQ'ing M&M's indeed! To that end, I'm happy to report that the pork chops were amazing. Seriously good. We will buy them again. We had purchased the Lemon Pepper kind. Oh, so good. I served them with slices potatoes and onions cooked in a big foil on the BBQ, corn on the cob (which I actually almost enjoy without butter and salt), and tossed salad. All in all, a great low point meal. It fell off the rails for me when we picked up two bags of chips "for our guests". They, of course, had none, cause we ate them all!! One thing that I did that was positive was that I put the chips into a container (one of those plastic Ziploc bowls). I then had one container of each kind. Still a lot of chips to be sure, but normally I'd have had more than twice that without even a thought.

Today I am going to go shopping again for Lullulemon's. The store was way too busy last time we went - we are going to try to go right near opening. Then I have to meet with personal trainer. To be honest, it will be nice because the Club has air conditioning!! It is so hot already! I figure I will see hail before the day is out. Our fine city doesn't handle warm weather well at all.

Well, I'm off to start the day with a healthy breakfast.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. Well, she sure did a great job!!! And look at you for being such a positive role model! Fab!

  2. Good attitude with respect to your daughter.

    Do you have to thaw those porkchops before cooking them?

  3. That meal sounds good! We BBQ-d today too, and it's been pretty hot here.

    Thats great that you and your daughter did the challenge together!

    Wii has strength training, and aerobics on it, plus balance games. I'm borrowing my sisters, and even though I like it, I know it would be something I would hide in a corner to collect dust. As my husband said, we have a gym membership, workout videos, exercise on demand on our tv, and two legs that work outside. I don't think I will be buying it. And the yoga that is on it, each thing is about 1-2 mins long so you don't get bored, which I do with yoga.
