PR day

Long time no blog.  I've been busy not being busy.  Ha!  Housewifing takes up a lot of time.  Not sure how I ever managed a career with all the stuff that goes on around here.  We are all super-women when we have jobs outside the house I suppose.

Anyway, since I last  blogged, I hit my 25lb weight loss goal and then went on a two week sailing trip and gained 5 back.  It'll come right back off.  I'm back on track and working hard at it.

Today, I managed to set 2 PR's at the gym.  The first was on hang power snatch.  Actually I set 2 PR's on that alone - 95# and 100#.

Then we had a choice of Isabelle or Randy and I chose Randy.  75 power snatches for time at 55#.  I took 1:46 off my old PR with a time of 5:54.  So, it's a PR day!

Yep.  That's me these days.  Actually, I'm unemployed, so I'm being a housewife until I find a new job.  Not digging the whole house cleaning thing, but I realized the people I've been paying to clean my house were slackers.  So much was just being done half-assed.  I'm fixing all that.  I will probably just continue to do it myself even after I find a job.  Like the old saying goes, "If you want something done right, do it yourself."

We had our usual winter escape to the caribbean - this year to the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.  Very enjoyable and relaxing trip.  And I got my annual cold on the return.  So, I'm almost over that, and in the meantime I've been scaling everything at the gym.  Still maintaining my meal-planning and weight loss.
