Yesterday my sisters and I moved some furniture. Well moved appliances!!!!!
My sister is cleaning out her house and the last things to get out were the washer and dryer and the refrigerator. I had no idea how much a fridge weighs and how wide washer and dryers are. We started with the dryer, which was not a good idea because it was the lightest of all the others. We got spoiled right off the bat. When it was time to move on to the washer, which was heavier. Finally, we got to the fridge!!!!!!!!! This thing weighs 198 lbs. It was hard to get out of the house, and hard to get in the truck, and hard to get back out of the truck, but it does not touch how hard it was to get up the steps and its new resting place. Yes, a little redneck but it is sitting on the front porch. We couldn't move it any further.
I wish I had a recording of the way we sounded trying to pull the dolly up the stairs. It sounded suspiciously like someone in labor, with lots of grunting and swears. Lots of swears. We would pull the fridge up a step and it would fall back down. Well when it fell back down it would hit our arms between the shoulder and the elbow. But with the angle we were having to work from there was no other way to do it.
So now this morning I have 2 big fat bruises on my arms, my shoulders hurt, and my neighbor has a fridge on her front porch.
Ha Ha...Thought you would enjoy.

Just so you know I have not been neglecting my blog cause I didn't want to, I kind of forgot all about it.
That is really sad to admit but I did. Anyway, I'm back now. Well I will let you all know how its been going. I have not gotten to do my traditional workout for the last little bit but I have been riding my bike a lot more. I thought it would really show on the scale that I have not had a chance to go to the gym, but when I weighed the last time I was down 3 lbs. from the last weigh in. So I was pretty excited about that. I have worked til like 7 or 8 the last couple of nights if not later. And then on top of that I have had ballgames galore to go to. But tonight after my last appointment, at 6:15, I will be at the gym.
Just so you know I am still trying to figure out how to do the VLOG thing, you will know when I figure it out.

Anyway, I had a great weekend. We went on the river again this weekend. I was in the boat with my non-paddling sister again, but man, she really came to my rescue this trip. I got really tired during the last leg of the trip and she jumped in a paddled her little heart. *thanks.
In preparation for this wonderful trip, I packed a cooler with healthy snacks, turkey sandwiches and baked lays and the only snack food I had was pretzel sticks. We got on the water about 9 o'clock and by 9:30 my dad had given away all of my pretzels, so I had no snacks for the water. I was pretty mad about it and I was starving by the time we got off the water. It didn't really matter though cause we celebrated my niece's birthday that night so I got to eat some MEXICAN!!! Don't worry I did good there too, I am that crazy person that carries my own chips in the restaurant with me.
NOW AS A PROUD AUNT!
On Sunday this weekend I went to the State Championship in Trap Shooting in Nashville. My niece Kelly finished Second in the state. We were all really proud. My sister that went with us, kind of a superstitious person did a squat on the first shot, and it was a hit. Being a little OCD she then had to do a squat for the next 99 shots. She was hurting after about 50 and it was not over yet. It was really funny to watch, she would stand as the other 4 kids shot and then she would squat for Kelly, and as soon as the shot went off she would stand up and start moving back and forth. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, I have it on video. I spent more time watching her and laughing than the shoot.
Well that is pretty much how my weekend went, I showed some property in there as well but for the most part just had a lot of fun and didn't stray to far from my diet. I did eat part of a "Bucket O' Fries" and they were good, but like I said did good on the diet for the most part.
