McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pizza Hut

10/23/12:  Living room

Jillian.  That is all I have to say.

Then I went for an afternoon run while my madre hung out with my kids.  It was a rough run.  I wasn't into it at all.  I went 2.15 miles and it took me 25:29 minutes.  I walked for quite a while before I started running but I'm still not completely excited about the outcome.  At least I wasn't on the couch eating!

10/24/12:  Living room

Jillian kicked my butt.

This week is red ribbon week at E's school:

Decade Day

Crazy hair and socks!
Just in case everyone needs a reminder:  McDonald's food doesn't mold.


Peace.

Do Lysol Wipes Hurt Dogs?

Because I scrubbed Penny with them this morning.  Her and Lizzy dug out of the backyard this morning and when Penny came back she had what appeared to be some sort of feces on her.  Baby wipes didn't do the trick so I pulled out the big guns and wiped that dog down with the Lysol wipes.  Then went on an adventure to find Lizzy.  Needless to say I was late for work today.

Normally I would list my most recent workouts now.  I would do that if I had any to list.  Instead, here are some photos of recent happenings.

D and the girls guarding the house.

E at her Fall Party!

We had 30 minutes to waste before we had to pick up D!

What I've been doing instead of running.  
   In regards to the photo above, I have not confessed my love of my snuggie to the blog.  I love my snuggie. Please take note that I am warm and covered but yet my hands are free.  I know some haters, Martinez and Vic who like to hate on me for my love of my snuggie.  Whatevs.  Maybe I'll have some workouts to list soon...

Put Yo Lipstick On

10/09/12:  Living room
Day 2 of Jillian.   She kills.

My last post should have read 10/08/12.  I started the 30 Day Shred again on Monday not Tuesday.  My apologies, blog world.

10/10/12:  Living room
Day 3 of Jillian.







That is kind of what I have been telling myself the last few days.  Minus the drink, I guess that would be frowned on at work.  But in the afternoon now that is a different story!  I kid, I kid.  Don't get all judgey on me.

More Spiders, Glitter and Muffins

10/09/12:  Living room
Restarted 30 Day Shred.  She kicked my butt all over the place!

Had a crazy busy weekend as normal.  Started with a basket ball game and then went to the football game for E to cheer.  This weekend was homecoming so we had to be extra sparkly and needed extra spirit fingers.

Glitter spray, ya'll

Did I mention that it was freezing?

The football players gave the girls those cute headbands

She is so cold, but oh so cute!

Here are a few photos from the homecoming ceremony (very official).






After freezing at the football game I went to the grocery store and got all of the extra food I needed for the month.  I have not posted about this yet (because I have been lazy), but I am really proud of my dinner menu I made last week.


I do most of my shopping at Sam's and then pick the things up they don't carry at the grocery store.  I usually only plan dinner out for a couple weeks, I don't normally do a month so I will post later about how well it works out.

After getting home and putting everything away, D and I hung out and then I snuggled with my puppies all night.


Sunday morning when my alarm went off I did not want to get up!  I wanted to stay in bed all day (not that I could as D would be up shortly).  I was all down in the dumps because I want to sleep late!!  So, I told myself this:  "self, SayTan is just trying to get you down, so get your lazy butt moving".  Yes, I prefer to call him SayTan, it is much more entertaining that way.  So, I got up and around because SayTan can't win and was only 30 minutes late for church.  Whomp whomp....  After church I ran to Target to pick up the hand weights I forgot to get on Saturday.  I needed some 3lbs instead of the 8lbs I had.  This is what I ended up with:

I have no idea how the Oreo's got in my basket...
After that fun trip I decided to try a recipe I found on Pinterest.




1 can of pumpkin
1 chocolate cake mix
6 oz of chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 22-25 minutes

Oh my goodness, these suckers are delish!

Then I found this guy waiting on me in my bathroom.

Spawn of SayTan

Spiders and Puppy Dog Tails

Apparently I think that I am entitled to take a break from working out.  I literally haven't done anything physical since last Tuesday.  Really, Amy?  The depressing thing is that I can feel myself getting flabbier!  So, last Thursday Martinez and I decided that we had to be grown ups again on Monday (today).  Basically we had the weekend to eat and sit on the couch with reckless abandonment.  SO, at 4:57 this morning when my alarm went off, I basically wanted to crawl back in bed, hide under the covers and cry.  I didn't.  I got up and got on the treadmill.  I so did not want to be on the treadmill!  I had to talk myself into it.  I said "self, you're going to run for 30 minutes".  I got started and realized I forgot to turn on the television.  I didn't get off to turn it on because I knew that I would just plop myself down on the couch and watch.  At 20 minutes I had to walk, couldn't do it anymore.  Then it happened - I see a spider crawling across the living room floor. We pay Terminix every month and when do I see a spider?  When I am fighting with myself to stay on the stupid treadmill.  I gave in, couldn't handle the spider.  I got off and killed it.

10/01/12:  Treadmill
24 minutes, 1.78 miles
I did some arm exercises with my hand weights and crunches to make myself feel a little better about the crappy treadmill performance.

10/01/12:  Yes, I worked out twice.  Began Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred
Ouch.

10/02/12:  Treadmill
36 minutes, 2.7 miles
Dang, I was sloppy this morning.  My legs were sore from Jillian!  I ran the majority, but had to walk at the end.


Due to the fact that I have been a lazy hag for a week and a half, I have failed to inform my blog friends of the newest addition to our family.  Introducing... Lizzy!



Creepy dog eyes!
