Ok, today is a quick post. (at least let's hope so) I'm up in MT at my parents again, and this time when I come home, It'll be kidless. The grandparents are taking my little rugrats for THREE WEEKS!!! I hope I can handle this!! Anyway, while I'm here I'm not going to be doing much working out, but my mom wants me to move some rock for her so that'll be a good ST exercise. I'm headed to the Ronnie Dunn (Dunn from Brookes & Dunn)  Concert tonight, so that will be fun. Brewfest tomorrow, so that should be fun. Home without kids on Sunday!! OOFTA. Also, while I'm here, we (mom and I) are going to pick up a couple of good vegetarian cookbooks.

So, I've had a revelation about what is going on me, and that lack of determination. It's quite simple. It's not new anymore. I love exercising, so that's fun. But the "Shiny" part of the whole experience is now gone. I'm feeling basically in between. I'm feeling good, and looking better. I want to feel better and even better, but I'm happy where I'm at now too. So that makes the experience a little less "shiny".  Maybe this new vegetarian outlook will make things brighten up. Also, I'm going to have to have some awards or steps, or well, anything to "shine" up the road.

Well, gotta go. My (soon) 4 year old is coloring on my 2 year old.

Nice grandparents! I hope you take advantage of your free time and do something just for you, whatever that is.

How wonderful that you get such a break in the summer. My kids are going to their grandma's for 3 days next week but that's nothing compared to 3 weeks. Wow.
I hope you get off to a good start with your vegetarian stuff. I was raised vegetarian but now eat chicken, turkey and fish.
Lately I've been experimenting with some whole grain stuff like bulgar wheat and Quinoa. Kind of tasty if you cook it up with onion, celery, garlic, carrots, broccoli. Also I've been trying tofu again lately. I've found one way I like it is the extra firm cut into little cubes and marinated in soy sauce or some such sauce and then browned with a touch of vege oil. Anyway, that's just where I'm at. :)
