0401 (Friday) 164.1. Steps 19509. Total Burn 2681. Exercise Burn 999/935 (60minElliptical, Zumba). Calories in 2800. No school for the older boys today, which meant no carpool conflicts for Zumba. Nicole was having a class, and I love hers, but I hadn't hit Debbie's in a while, so I was going to go for it. Unfortunately when I got there, everyone seemed to have yoga mats, and Debbie wasn't anywhere in sight. I asked, and I guess she is out of town and it's just yoga for a few weeks. I wish I'd known, so I hadn't wasted time driving out there. I still had time to make Nicole's class though, as it was still starting at 9:30 (even with no middle school). I got in my hour of elliptical and a weights session during the day too. I worked with the older boys on their schedules for next year, registration is next week. The littles still had school, and early out at the elementary. #5 had a friend come over for a playdate, and then I dropped him off to go to basketball practice. Hubs was home late (stopped for a drink and then by the Apple/ATT store to see if the new iphone was around to check out). We were debating a movie and popcorn, but as I got out of the shower Hubs was hit with another attack ... Menieres or a reaction to a Lortab taken for his shoulder, which has been making him miserable for a week now :(
0402 (Saturday) 164.4. Steps 17619. Total Burn 2461. Exercise Burn 530/702 (40minElliptical, Bike, LawnMow). Calories in 2800. Hubs had considered a 5k with the munchkins, but with his lack of sleep this week, and wanting to take it east until his sciatica feels better ... no 5k. Yea for sleeping in! We didn't have much on deck for the day. I got out and mowed the front lawn and did some cleanup in the flower bed. #5 had a basketball game at 2:00 (they won) and Hubs dropped off our tax stuff (yes, we left it to the last minute) and then took off for Wendover with a work buddy. I got in elliptical while catching up on "Scandal" and did a session on the bike while starting a new book.
0411 (Monday) 165.2. Steps 13407. Total Burn 2360. Exercise Burn 450/596 (40minElliptical). Calories in 2000. Hubs had a "hangover" from this attack yesterday, and I had one from mine. NO energy this morning. I did pull out of bed at 5:30 and get #2 off to class, then the other boys. I should have gone to Zumba. I never miss Zumba ... but I just didn't have it in me today. I was also distracted by ducks ... they were out in a neighbor's yard in the morning and I tried to encourage them into our backyard again. They almost went, but then got spooked and flew away. I left the gate open, and put out some water and food. Later I looked in the backyard and they were there! I set out the big swimming pool for them. Got some computer stuff done (letters off to the missionary, tax stuff) then took a nap. I cleaned the house a little, as we had company coming over later, the DiFran family. Friends that moved away four years ago and were back in state visiting. Picked up the kids after school and grabbed some Papa Murphy pizza. It was really fun to visit and have the boys play. #3 had basketball practice at 8:30, so we said goodbye to our friends. Hubs came home and got a little duckie time in before he headed to bed ... and then the ducks flew away again. Hopefully they will come back again tomorrow.
0414 (Thursday) 165.3. Steps 20123. Total Burn 2715. Exercise Burn 977/951 (60minElliptical, Zumba). Calories in 3000. At least #2 was easier to get up this morning ... he decided not to fight it, as I had been so persistent yesterday. Made him scrambled eggs this morning, as it was rainy and overcast, a little cold for a smoothie. Got in a couple sessions on the elliptical as I got the other boys off to school. Headed to Zumba. It was an emotional morning, as Marian had shared yesterday that a story on the news, about a 13-month old baby falling head first into a cooler with a bit of water in it and nearly drowning, was her grandson. He was life-flighted to Primary Children's and is on a ventilator. Scary and sad. She had us helpers fill in some songs until she felt up to doing some. I came home and pretty much crawled into bed. Just needed the warmth and escape. Didn't really have the energy to do anything (hadn't been able to get good stats at Zumba really either). It rained most of the day. Very dreary. The ducks were around in the morning but then I didn't see them later in the day. #2 had a basketball game in the evening. I would have liked to go watch, but it was out of my comfort zone to drive, and I just wasn't quite feeling up to it. Hubs had another Menier's attack at work today (he didn't let me know until after it was done). He was down from 11:00-2:00, and then he is always drained after. He came home and was hungry and craving a burger, so I grabbed him some In&Out, then he went to bed. Checked in with #2 ... they lost by three points. He went over to the high school after to practice shooting in the gym and didn't get home until late. At least he (and I) get to sleep in tomorrow. I indulged in comfort food today.
