Half way there!!!

As of yesterday morning I am half way to my fitness goal so I bought myself a present .. Can NOT wait until they get here..

At present time I am in 2 challenges - one of which due to illness I am WAY behind - however you are not supposed to work out when your sick "below the neck", since I am coughing up anything and everything I have yet to be able to get back to my 31 day Jillian challenge - or in my case the 1 day Jillian challenge ~ that I totally effin rocked LOL.

The second is a Holiday Fitness challenge to keep us motivated through Thanksgiving - this one is done in teams of 5 ladies. At the end there are prizes so I am so hoping we kick ass!! 

This next week is going to be fairly busy we have family coming in on Thursday.  I am hoping the weather holds and it doesn't get to cold so we can get out and enjoy some of the fall events around the city. 

Have a great weekend!!

Family Drama .. does it EVER end??

Its really no secret that I have 3 sisters and a niece I never speak to.. Each for individual reasons.  None of them attempt to reenter into my life and I don't go stirring up theirs. It works - hell at this point I am pretty sure that unless our mother mentions me my name is not on their lips - I like it that way.

I know its odd and most people are "my sister is my bestie" meh not mine - and honestly a lot of that is because I am the baby and I am a late in life baby - my sisters were pretty much all out of the house when I made my surprising entrance so there was no bonding. I'm ok it, we come for totally different generations and frankly even though they grew up on the 60's those baby boomers are pretty judgmental creatures. I am very close to my sister in law and get my "sister time" with her.

My niece on the other hand even though she is not in my life decides every few years she needs to stir the pot.. lil witch did it again this weekend.  Honestly does this shit end? Whats the purpose? Why do people make shit up spread rumors then sit back in shock while several family members are hurt, upset and riled up?? As doctor Phil would say whats the pay off for you? My part of the family has left you alone - there is not poking of the witch we do our own thing yet you feel the need to surface every once in awhile waving your bitch flag and stirring the pot.

Do all families have issues similar? If there is someone you cut out of your life do they resurface every few years disrupt things then go into the wings until the next time??

Hey Hey its Friday!!! Week recap

I seriously need a title generator!! I think the next one is going to be insert title here.

Sorry I have been missing all week - I went and landed me a cold that quickly turned into a sinus infection.. Which has been the norm ever since my sinus surgery a few years back (appx 6) - worst surgery EVER  I really wished I had never consented to having it done. I still have the migraine headaches and now if you sneeze on me -  bam I have a sinus infection.

I got in a Yoga meltdown workout in on Monday but that has been it for the week due to the illness.. Yoga Meltdown wow - the only thing I can say there is HOLY ROLLING SIDE PLANKS BATMAN!!  I am looking forward to getting back at it though after my head clears a bit more.. This weekend I will hit the treadmill and work up from there .

Last night we met up with family who had come in from out of state - Its always fun seeing Aunt June - Then The Hubs took me over to get new jeans mine were to big!! Found 2 pairs of skinny jeans that are a size smaller!! WOOT That always makes for a good day.

My knee surgery has been scheduled for Nov 2nd then I have about 6 weeks were I have to take it easy  - so no jumping rope or running (2 things I HATE lol).

That's how my week went - how was yours??
