Today was grumpy's first day at bootcamp; her schedule for today looks like this; 635-7 am wake up eat half breakfast (slow carb diet) out the door 7-730am drive 730-830 HELL 830-850 drive home 850-915 walk Coal 1 mile, just a note she totally wanted to do this, I didnt force her to come with me! 915-930 finish breakfast 930-10 get ready for work 10-1030 drive to work and get settled 1030-1230 teach a class 1230-10pm WORK! then tomorrow she has to be up at 730 to go and start it all over again, without teaching a class at work. She is going to have such a long week, well the next 6 weeks are going to be long but it will all be worth it!


The Fitness Bug

Has once again planted itself on our house, we own a treadmill and elliptical and a really fancy weight bench... Last week I signed Grumpy up for pure workout's 6 week transformation program it was a groupon sale. She has been running in the morning and one day last week while life was happening, and I was fed up with it, I went in and ran, and ran and ran..... and then when I was all done I felt so much better the things that bothered me before were not such a big deal. I have since decided to follow in her foot steps and take up running, we are starting to train for a 5K tomorrow morning using the couch 2 5k program. Between that, walking coal every morning and evening , Grumpy going to her 1 hour work out classes (which is pretty much, biggest loser last chance work out 5 days a week) we are really being taken over by fitness over here.



That was the first day that we stepped into this house... I remember walking in and thinking this is the one... here are a few of the actual kitchen pictures from that day;

What a beautiful pink kitchen! (I wish there was a sarcasm font) dont get me wrong I LOVE the lay out of this kitchen. But I hate that pink and the hearts! so here it is today;

We have to remove the glue layer tonight from the bigger wall and then one more wall to go then we get to fix the window sils. We are using a product called Pirahna wall paper destroyer and it all just peels right off... more before and afters to come as we get closer to the after....



Last Tuesday I had my impacted wisdom tooth and one molar removed! So most of last week was spent doing nothing, by Friday our house was starting to look the part! I did make a not so exciting menu, by Sunday the laundry was all done and the house was pretty much back to normal, and besides a little stitch string that keeps gaging me I am too!

3/7 Salisbury Steak, brown rice and cantaloupe
3/8 Family style chicken enchiladas
3/9 Pork chops, with baked apples and risotto
3/10 Chinese chicken salad
3/11 Lemon Chicken with broccoli
3/12 ?
3/13 Slow cooker Mexican chicken

I am also happy to announce that we are having are VERY FIRST "its not a holiday family dinner" in April, I know its a long way off but I have to give every one enough notice, I know there are people that get together every week for family dinners but they actually like their family ! I kid I kid lol....

Ok sorry!

So what should we eat? I know that we are going to have a Surprise cake for my SIL her bday is the following weekend. Should I theme it? That would be awesome!
