OK I'm Done!

The crazy week is over and now I hope to get back on schedule. Mainly I hope to get back on track with my exercise and Weight Watchers routine.

I now officially only have SEVEN (did you read that? SEVEN!!) weeks left until my cruise. I have only lost 10 lbs and that's it! Why though? Because I haven't really made a hard core effort to lose more. Today I am. I'm going to start the Oprah Challenge today!

What's the Oprah Challenge? Basically, no white stuff at all. No bread, sugar, you know, the good stuff. No eating three hours before you go to bed. And you need to work out 6 days a week- 30 min of aerobics and 20 minutes of weights. On one day you do 1 hour of aerobics. That's it in a nutshell but a lot easier to say than to do.

Let's see what kind of results I get in 7 weeks. I'm starting the work out tomorrow because I have meeting tonight. I'm going to walk/jog for the aerobics and I bought some small weights to do the arm exercises after aerobics. I'm also going to do stomach crunches. YIKES!

I got a call from the babysitter this morning. Miranda heard the news about the hurricane and got really worried when she heard that it hit Louisiana. The sitter called me to ask about Mandi, my step-daughter and I told her we assume she's doing OK because they were going to evacuate. She asked me to tell Miranda because she was worried.

"I can't believe how smart this girl is!" she said before handing Miranda the phone.

Miranda gets on the phone.

"Mommy, a tornado hit Lousiana. Where's my sister?!"

"She's OK. Her mommy took her somewhere safe where the hurricane couldn't hurt her."

"But the weatherman on TV says a big tornado hit!"

"Yes I know, but she's okay."

"Okay Mommy. Bye!" and she goes back to watching the news.

Loida, MIranda is SO smart. She has such a big heart. How sweet that she is so concern about her sister Mandy.
