Loins Girded

I wonder what you were technically supposed to gird loins with? Did this serve something like a support hose or athletic cup kind of function? Just curious.

I printed out a week's calendar by the hour and filled it all in. That's how my life is going to be now. Positive attitude, right? Right! I have my food figured out (same thing for breakfast, lunch and snack every day) and when I'm going to hit Zumba. Also ballet lessons, basketball pickups, dr appointments, kid/husband drop-offs and retrievals, and what we're having for dinner. I did a semi-scientific grocery shop. I got one Zumba down today and I have been doing well with my tea drinking (not all that onerous). More importantly, the house is almost completely cleared out of tempting sugar stuff except one or two things that need to be addressed. My only other news is that I did weights on Friday I think and I am still way sore, even though I was fine at the time and consciously didn't kill myself. That's a new way of maintaining the challenge, just slack off for a few weeks every couple of months :)

Wish me luck! I'm in dire need tonight because I have hours of deadly dull at home training that I have been managing to avoid. Looks like tonight's the night. Multiple frowny faces. I hope your Sunday night is more pleasant and I wish us all a focused and successful week.

  1. If you want something to get done, give it to a busy person...that would be YOU! Your planning strategies are motivating me.

    So...how's the MIL? Cleared out with the tempting sugary stuff, yet? Is this time together potentially a bonding experience?

    And I do wish you luck.

  3. It sure is easier when the meals are the same, isn't it? At least for me it is.

  5. I do the same meal thing too. Life's just easier that way. Plus, I'm unimaginative. :)

    Good luck!
