TGIF! This & That (Random Posting)

I've gotten hooked on Swagbucks. I almost have enough swagbucks for a $10 Amazon giftcard. I'm leaning towards buying one of The Biggest Loser DVDs.
Sounding like a hypocrite, I've been eating horribly all week. I start off ok, but by the end of the day I've blown it. Aidan's birthday kicking off the week, plus Brennan's birthday being this coming Monday, I feel like I surrender to the week-long celebration and give up.
No excuses, but I've blown it.
Going off the last 2 posts, one WW leader a while back called me on it: I make a mountain out of a molehill when it comes to going off program. Meaning if I go off ONCE, I mentally can't get myself back on track until my WW week starts over. I don't know why, but I am this way.
I recently learned of Turbo in Toledo, Turbo for a Cause. I am seriously going to look into it.

NON exercise related now! LOL

I went grocery shopping yesterday (pay day). I passed my personal record, saving just over $19 with my coupons. That felt great. I was admiring my receipt all of yesterday.
Pollen is bad here, too. The last 2 days I've had a sore throat & headache. It was on our news about the specific trees and their pollen levels being higher than usual. Ick. Downside to spring.

Aidan started soccer this week! Wednesday was the first practice, and Saturday is the first game. It was adorable. Even more adorable? Pat is coaching. They're both having a great time with it, and I think it's incredibly cute.
My apologies for a boring blog this week! I started the week off tired, I've been working on the May menu for Really Good Stuff's blog (much more challenging this time around than last time), and we've been outside a ton enjoying the weather.
I hope you have a great weekend! What are your plans?

I am with you on the WW thing...I haven't been able to weigh in b/c I usually go on Saturday mornings so I can be alone. Well, soccer season has started and our Saturdays are booked with that. So I have used it as a free for all. *hangs head in shame*. I only have 2 more months and 27 pounds to get back to goal before I have to pay again. hmmm...

Yay for you and coupons! I have been clipping since last summer and have cut my bill in half. :)

I have a hard time getting back on track too. But I'm trying to be better about that. Also trying to force myself to write down every little thing I eat. That's an eye opener!
