So.  Things are still going strong here, although I’m not ‘feeling’ as thin as I was…could possibly be the ‘monthly’ craptime to blame.  My boobs are hurtin…sorry TMI I’m sure.  But I’m thinking that’s why I don’t feel so thin right now.

 Other than that, workouts are still going strong…I LOVE sweating.  When I get out to the gym (my boxing area in the shop) and I start working out, and the sweat comes, it gives me like a 2nd wind.  I get pumped that I am sweating.  How weird is that?  I just wanna work out until I’m SOAKED.  Weird motivator, huh?

I have so many pictures that I need to share here.  I took some pictures of my arm making a muscle, I could see the definition in the mirror, but not so much in the photo, so maybe I’ll post it anyways and see what it shows up like.  I have pictures of my boxing area in the shop (my ‘gym’). I have a couple of myself.  I have to post the ones of the living room built-in that we did awhile back.  I hope you all don’t get bogged down when you visit this site on that post, cuz I will just upload a bunch and have a picture fiesta entry

As for this weekend, I’m SO stinkin’ excited.  It has been FOREVER since we have gotten a chance to get away from everything and just go somewhere.  Even though it’s a short trip, I’m so thrilled.  I had originally won tickets to go to The House of Blues in Cleveland (owned by Jim Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) and see the Gin Blossoms tomorrow night (Thursday).  That fell through, so I called the radio station back and told them we couldn’t make it so that they could do a last-minute giveaway today.  So now we are leaving by 5:00 a.m. on Friday morning (leaving our HUGE house guest (our lab) to protect the house, so don’t get any ideas if you know where I live…he’s a protector!!!) and heading to Cincinnati, OH and going to the Zoo and Botanical Gardens that they have there…this is supposed to be a beautiful zoo…rated VERY highly.  Then after we spend our day at the zoo, we will head back to the hotel…THE FREAKIN HOTEL…and do NOTHING…yes, I plan to do NOTHING…well, sorta…they have an awesome fitness room and I’m taking FULL advantage that night   We will check out about 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning and head to the Newport Aquarium…that also is supposed to be awesome and it’s only 10 minutes from our hotel.  We will spend a couple of hours at the aquarium and then head out for our 5 hour drive home….It’s going to be a short but sweet getaway…all 4 of us deserve this one, let me tell you…we don’t get to go away overnight EVER.  Our neighbors are watching the house and letting Samson in and out for us…they also have 2 labs that he loves to play with, so he probably won’t even miss us…but we are so looking forward to this…

I’ll be back with updates and pictures!!
