Since I met my last mini-goal, I indulged in my reward of a pedicure. It was wonderful. I sat back and relaxed. A rare treat in my life.
My mother-in-law went with me, as my father-in-law and sister-in-law watched the kiddos. The salon we went to was in a nearby town. The town was once all farmland, now it has turned into yuppyville on the outskirts of
. I guess I can’t talk it down too much, after all it is where my in-laws live. Boise
It is not very often that I get out and pamper myself. I know there are some people out there that are good about making time to give themselves a little bit of a boost. Something I should do more often. Even if it is soaking and painting my own toes at home.
I had to chuckle and raise my eyebrows when I overheard this woman come in. She was loud and made sure every one knew about her chipped toe nail. She had a design painted on her large toe nail and when she noticed her chipped toe nail, she made a special trip just to get the toe nail trimmed and the design fixed. She was a little over the top, but offered me entertainment as I sat and observed her bizarre behavior. Alas, I was in yuppy-ville.

Still 100% with exercise. Whew!!
Over the weekend I purchased Jillian’s 30 Day Shred. Yes, I am joining the bandwagon. I have seen so many out there giving this a try with great success. I could use mixing up my routine a bit. The workouts are only 20 minutes, so I most likely will still be going to the gym to meet my goal of working out 45-60 min. 5 days a week. I am not sure if I will be doing it early before the kids are out of bed, or in the evening. Somehow??? I don’t know how I am going to work it in. This morning the kids were up for the day at 6am. I am not a morning person, and I am not getting up earlier than that! I hope to get a schedule worked out and do this for 30 days straight (minus Sunday, I don’t work out on Sundays. So we will see how it goes 34 days from now. Wish me luck! I am a bit scared to face Jillian on a daily basis!
Did good on water this week.
Hope all of you have a great week!
