Ok, Tristi threw down the gauntlet and I am going to pick it up.

What I was afraid would happen has happened for me. Work has picked up and I am not in the halls as much as before or as much as I should be. So movement and stair climbing has decreased. After school there is soccer practice to drive to and pick up from, class for me, errands around town, home work, house work, and you know how it goes. Not much left over for the exercise.

Plus I had some big homework projects that kept me up late, so I haven't been getting the sleep I need.

Then I was invited to be a vendor at an upscale boutique the weekend before Thanksgiving. So I have been spending all my extra time when not doing the above stuff to paint bracelets so I will have at least 100 to take with me.

My pants felt a bit snugger today than they did last week. I refuse, absolutely refuse to let the scale go up more than a couple of pounds. And I really want to get to the next zero number down. So, goal for the rest of the month:

*Exercise to the 10 minute exercise DVD 5 days a week. It doesn't matter what routine I choose, just so long as I do one.
*Walk the halls at the school, going up and down the stairs at least 2 times a day. 4 is preferable, but I will settle for 2 times a day everyday that school is in session the rest of this month.
*Go back to my menues for supper so that I don't just make something fast when I remember the kids want to eat.

How come I didn't know you painted bracelets? I want to see some! I don't actually wear bracelets - having anything on my wrists bugs me - but I am a great appreciator of artistic talent.

I have some in an Etsy shop, but am waiting to add more until my light tent comes so I can take better pics. (
