Staying Positive

I am emotionally drained from my visit with the in-laws. Have decided I HAVE to just focus on the positives.

  • All siblings made an effort to get lots of visiting done
  • My niece had a baby a couple of weeks ago, and because my SIL was in town, we were ALL invited over to see new baby. I am grateful for that opportunity - since I wouldn't have had it otherwise.
  • Husband got the corporate box for our local pro-football team and we were able to have the entire family there to watch the game. It was a great visit and I bet my husband's side hasn't all been together like that in around 10 years.
  • Daughter had lots of time to visit with grandparents (although she would not agree to put that on the positive list)
  • I have my health and likely many years to stew over the visit!! HAHAHAHA
Meanwhile, I got new golf clubs. Went golfing yesterday with husband and another couple. Entered my 4.5 hours of golfing (with a pull cart) into Nuttrimirrow - over 1,000 calories burned. Ya baby! I love my new clubs. I look good holding them!!

Oh, I learned the hard way that a poutine from Burger King is 18 points. Seriously. Fuck.

I'm trying my first spin class tonight with husband. He has been going for several weeks now. I have been spinning on my own, but have never done a formal class. Husband thinks I will like it. I figure I will be begging for death by the time it's done. We shall see I suppose.

Daughter is off in Invermere now for 2 weeks. I am missing her like crazy. But, she is having fun, I have no doubt.

Not much else to report. Was happy to see a weekly challenge that I can take part in this week. I will work on that later this afternoon.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. I haven't played golf in ages, but I agreed to get new clubs and pick it up again in the Fall when the weather cools down a bit...I did play my last time on WW, and the APs are awesome!!!

    Good for you focusing on the positive. OH, and spin class? I did really want to die.

  2. 18 points? JUST for the poutine???

  3. you really are staying positive. i'd like to try spinning too but a) i'm afraid and b) i don't belong to a gym!

    i believe it about the poutine!

  4. Can't wait to hear how spin went!
    Good for you for trying to stay positive!

  5. awww man, and I LIKE the poutine from BK.

  6. I'm just catching up on your blog and reading about the travails with your in-laws. It's over now, and it sounds like you survived in great style! Congrats on that!
