I hate trying to pick a title

So, I've been doing ok at keeping up with getting measured. Not so great at eating right, and since I messed up my shoulder, the exercising just hasn't been happening. But, on the bright side, my lean mass continues to increase (a very good thing), but my fat and flabby mass went up a little and has stayed the same. Deep sigh. I miss the skinny me. The nutritionist keeps telling my I've got amazing potential and that it isn't typicall to see lean mass increase so noticibly and I will probably plateau here pretty soon. But I'm trying really hard not to look at the scale weight. I finally got hubby to get measured yesterday, and he is willing to give it a three week crash course with me. He's very skeptical of all diets and so forth. I'm hoping to get him to see the light. Weight loss is truly 80% eating and 20% exercise.

I do love those RedBox things. Yes Man; loved it. The Happening; not so much. The Cake Eaters; too artsy fartsy for my taste, but ok. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; pretty good, much longer than I anticipated. Marley and Me; loved it, made me cry, and Yuna is the equivilent of Marley in our home, but not quite as destructive. Taken; great movie for snuggling with hubby. Made me feel safe. The movie was good too. In the theater, Star Trek was pretty amazing. I've never been a bit Treky fan, and I told hubby I wasn't even remotley interested in seeing the movie, but we are going to have to go back to the matinee and leave Bug in day care so I can see it again and truly appreciate it. A bouncing, babbling/happy-shrieks/fussing 9mo old isn't a good thing to take the the movies any more. Something I told hubby, but what do I know? I'm just the mom that has had to leave the $2 movies early twice now. (I'm afraid I did rub the whole "Told you" thing for a bit.) Yesterday was Angels & Demons. L.O.V.E.D it. They weren't as hard on the Catholic church in this one as they were in Da Vinci Code. But it was a great movie. Now I have to go to Rome and see all those beautiful buildings for myself. Hubby can come too if he wants.

I was reading a post from Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife (I think that was the one) and I have been inspired to start sticking to a semblence of a schedule. Even though hubby is done with is bachelors, we still don't hardly ever sit down as a family and have a meal. I'm still not exercising to my super dvds and Bug doesn't get to see enough of us as a little family. Neither do I for that matter. So, starting on Monday, I will be getting up at 5*10am to work out, shower, get breakfast started, force hubby out of bed, get Bug up and dressed and we will eat breakfast as a family. I'm feeling pretty excited about this. So many changes I need to make in order to make life for us easier. Especially as we get ready to move. Don't know where we're going yet, but I'm hoping we will have a final destination by the middle of June. Can't wait for our vegas trip either.

  1. I'm jealous you saw Angels&Demons! We tried to see that this weekend but waited to long so all the reliable babysitters were already taken...

    And have you tried Flyladyorg? She does wonders for me when I start feeling like I'm losing control of the household.
