I’m Procrastinating

I have nothing to say, but I don’t want to cross off the next thing on my to-do list, so I’m here instead.

What’s the next thing you ask… ugh… it’s the TORTURE MACHINE, also known as The Elliptical.

I hate this machine…

So, we had Mr. T’s annual check up, and while I knew it had gained some weight over the summer, my jaw about hit the floor when it was put in black and white.  Now, I don’t mind a big kid, and he’s got good self-esteem, but I’m worried about his health.

I’ve lost 30 pounds so far this year because I wanted to be healthier, and apparently all of the food I wasn’t eating, Mr. T was and I was blind to it.

As such, we’ve both made a point to be more active.  It’s really easy to do when we spent an hour chasing his 2 yr old cousin in the pool – or when we spent about 4 hours in the lake, and a good portion of that he did without a noodle – but during the week we don’t have those options.  I told him that I’d start doing the elliptical.  My goal is to set a good example.

Being a good example sucks.

Knowing this is good for me sucks, too.

Thus, I’m writing a blog post about it instead of actually getting up and doing it.

To-Do List

I’m a list maker, I love a good list.  Even more than a good list, I love crossing things off my list.  Sometimes, when I do something that isn’t on my list, I write it on there just to cross it off.  It feels so good!

Let me tell you about items that I had to put on my list yesterday…

  • Finish painting the bathroom, including the ceiling – Check
  • Treat Mr. T and I to dinner, cause after 2 days of painting after work, I deserve a break.  – Check
  • Get pulled over by a cop and be given a warning – Check
  • Almost having to have the cop that pulled you over call you a tow truck because you are stuck in the mud on the side of the road – Check

Mr. T posted this on Facebook “Mom just got pulled over by “sneaky” cop after getting dinner. Now it is cold.”

So, after I was blessed and was only given a warning I had visions in my head of not having to pay for a ticket, but having to shell out a couple hundred for a tow truck.  Fortunately, after slipping and sliding and my car turning directions it shouldn’t have, I managed to get back on the road.

Wondering what I was pulled over for? Speeding.  Technically, 11 over… my speedometer must be busted cause I would have sworn I was only going 10 over!

Yup, that happened last night.

I am the master of the to-do list!
